Well...I'd not considered that before, but now you make me wonder, was I more full of shit, or is this book? Tongue

I don't think that a person who wears a buttplug 24/7 could be more full of shit than this book. Also, you are at least self-correcting. You actually purge the shit, this book encourages others eat this shit by convincing a tasteless populace that they are eating steak, and then smearing this shit onto others, including children. You my friend, have nothing on Lee Strobel in the shit department.

Well thanks my friend, that's good to know.. Smile Also it's sad but interesting you mention kids. When I was doing my digging to see Strobel was a pastor at a church during the last interview I found out there's a Case For... series for kids by Zonderkids, an imprint of Zondervan (they're big thing is Bibles).

Angry

Okay, I know the NT says that, but the NT is reflects nothing of Jewish values or traditions. Why would their description of Paul be any different?

My wife bought TCFC for kids. I should have done an official reading of it but the parent in me just wanted to burn it with fire to send it back to the depths of hell from which it came.

RE: Shai Reads The Case for Christ
Query: how does one go about arranging a deathmatch between the two of you, OT (Tanakh?) vs. NT, as it were?

Asking for a friend Angel

Also, Organic Chemist, thanks a bunch for that pretty visual. Dodgy

Tanakh is correct, OT is incorrect if you're asking for the Jewish perspective. Smile

I'd go head to head with Shai.... except for the fact that I simply like him and am not otherwise offended by his beliefs or willing to risk my friendship with him by crossing lines that need not be crossed.

But I'd totally go head to head with some random meshugganah Christian who stops by to proselytize. You can read an example of my work here: http://www.thethinkingatheist.com/forum/...ristianity

I would pay to see you debate Shai but only if you dress like a peacock and he dresses like Paul Atraides.

Because Gary Habermas says so, and we've reached the point in the book where we now believe the compilation of the Bible to be inerrant and such. Yes or that's what the book seems to be implying, since they're no longer even trying to pretend there should be other sources than the Bible.

Normally I find the act of burning a book abhorrent...but...did you send it into the flames? Also I'm so sorry, imagine you were less than happy, to understate things, when she did.

I am proud not to be a crazy/meshugganah Christian that Aliza wants to pummel. Tongue She'd probably win and knows it.

Edit: Organic Chemist, only if I get to yell "ya hya chouhada!" too. Smile

I actually didn't burn it, the garbage company recycled it. Although the Kraut in me really wanted to burn it, there was no practical way to do so. I just wanted that garbage as far from my children as possible. I skimmed it and I think I lost a few brain cells. It is actually worse than TCFC if you can believe it.
