There are many other verses in the new testament that tell you not to have material possessions. Not to mention the many other verses that tell you to follow the commandments and go to synagogue on Sabbath. BTW, since I am discussing this with you and it has been done so calmly, why did you find it because to call me hostile? If you really want, I can be hostile to you so you can see the difference but since you saw fit to act all holier than thou with your condescending attitude, don't bother replying to me because I won't be replying to you.

Hostile isn't always defined as "mean" or "violent". It also can be used, as I did, in the adversarial sense.
But ok.

Jesus Christ, Phil. Go start your own thread. I'm not saying your point isn't worth discussing, but it's been literally 12 pages since this thread was remotely on topic.

Me: "Holy shit! My thread ballooned to 14 pages!"

* starts reading at page 2 where I left off *

Me: Ugh.

Not my fault. I made one post and the wolfpack of groupthink jumped to attack.

You didn't "make a post," you spoke out of your ass.

RE: Many Christians don't believe their own apologetics
But ok, since the original topic was the bullshit that is prayer and FB was mentioned...maybe this fits in here.

RE: Many Christians don't believe their own apologetics
What's funny about those (especially the first one), is that I honestly can't tell if that's satire or not. It's so crazy, Poe's Law is in full effect.

If they are serious, it's almost like they recognize and admit the own futility of their prayer with the whole "your will" thing.

"God. I know you're going go to what you're going to do, but I hope you're going to do what I want you to do. Please, do what I want you to do. You know, if you want to. Thanks!"

WTF!?

Exactly. However~when you ask them about it being god's will for them not to be able to (in this case) chat on FB, it's suddenly ME who doesn't understand the power or prayer. Unfuckinbelievable. No, this wasn't satire~it's from some lunatic group on FB called PRAYER CIRCLE...and it's FULL of similar nonsense.

RE: Many Christians don't believe their own apologetics
I guess, I shouldn't be surprised. If the Bible is so full of contradictions, it only makes sense that a lot of theology, apologetics, and the real-life applications of those two would be equally contradictory.

I just wonder why it's not more obvious. I was the same way, too. I would just assume there was no contradiction because I didn't want there to be one. If one was pointed out, I'd use some vague excuse of "mysterious ways". Wishful thinking, I guess.
