No, I just let you paint your own picture

So what's your purpose again? You apparently want get away from people like me, but yet your waiting around the corner, interjecting yourself at every turn.

How does any of this assist you in getting away from people like me?

(hint the answer is, other people on the forum continue to recognize your blatant dishonesty)

So what's your purpose again?

The real question has always been, "What is YOUR end goal here?"

If your Jebus-dude was real, or was a myth, he can maybe be seen as a "nice guy".
So what ?

Insufferable know-it-all.Einstein God has a plan for us. Please stop screwing it up with your prayers.

Yet again, I refer you to the answer to this question given to you already

Reading <- do it Drinking Beverage

But for what purpose? You said you're here to get away from people like myself. Instead you find yourself always around the corner, repeating the same exact patterns, over and over again.

How does pointing out whatever it is you think you're pointing out, help you to get away from people like myself? Because clearly your strategy hasn't worked.

You are denser than lead. Facepalm

Try and use your brain for a few minutes and reflect on the interactions, the questions, the rebuttals, and the things I actually say to you and point out.

Then ask yourself this question: "Why am I on TTA?" <- my purpose is to get you to be honest for just once

Don't you?

No, I don’t think my place in heaven is dependent on holding some set of historical beliefs regarding Yeshua, if that what you’re asking here.
Do you believe in heaven?
How do you believe that you get there?

By holding hands and singing kumbaya, how else?

Apparently by lying Drinking Beverage


Or maybe better to say, "by being a blatantly dishonest individual and misrepresenting yourself and the positions of others."

Most Christians think they get to heaven by accepting Jesus as their saviour and by Jesus' redemption on the cross washing away their sins.

Do you not accept Jesus as your saviour? Do you think Jesus' death was irrelevant?

Oh come on, guys, you have to admit that was funny!!
