RE: Why Christianity is the most popular religion
I'm just informing you as to what I'll read or respond to S.T., line by line responses are way too in-deptgh and confusing to me so I'll spend my time elsewhere sorry to spend so much of your time on a simple suggestion but I guess that's what you're wanting. Have fun talking to the people who have the time to respond to you.

And to the asker anal in this context means fixated, the idea of his probing of each line written by each person to make sure that each thing described is perfectly accurate. Have fun

I'm not a non believer, I believe in the possibility of anything. I just don't let the actuality of something be determined by a 3rd party.

You don't find it impolite to go into another's house and put your feet up on the coffee table?

Dear bro:

Trolls dont put their feet on the coffee table. They simply smash it.

Life is too important to be taken seriously.

Not much I can do for you.

You dont even have sufficient knowledge and self-awareness to help yourself. How can you help others? (Matthew 15:13-14 and Luke 6:39-40)


And yes it's a book of myths since you cant prove the reliablility of your source (God). If the story of Santa Claus is not real, unless I m a toy maker, why should I even bother with the texture of his coat?

Since you love scripture so much, according to Genesis 38:6-10, should I creampie my GF each time we fuk to avoid the wrath of your GOD? Would you mind to tell me how you deal with this one, if this question isnt too "foul" to you??

Your questions in order:

Actually, there are things I can do to help myself, but that is an area of personal discipline, and I am working on many things.

And you can disprove it? lol

Well, let's see: are you Onan? Has your father directly commanded you to give your dead brother children? If not, then this does not apply to you, so, continue in your normal pattern of life.

If you are Onan, I have to say that you are doing very well for a man your age.

God bless.

That is a little unfair: I have merely addressed the questions and comments directed toward me. I stay in only a couple of threads, and do not blizt this forum in an attempt to aggravate people.

But, do not worry, by the forum clock, I have about 13 hours left to my visit, and then I will be out of your hair for a while. I will spend a forum day with you guys, talk about some issues I really do nbot think you have considered, and then I will go.

If you feel I have "put my feet on your coffee table," sorry, just know that I find it funny that it is okay for many here to practice verbal abuse, some of it proudly declared as "foul" ( and I still do not know where he gets the idea I am offended...wishful thinking perhaps?), yet, if I address the questions and comments directed toward me...I am rude.

Kind of a double standard there, isn't it...venturing into hypocrisy. You can behave as you like, but the minority needs to "know their place," and you will attempt to make sure they know it.

But this is typical...this is how the majority always behaves. What is extremely funny is when one ruling majority ridicules the majorities of the past, not having learned anything from what their beloved history has taught them.

God bless.

Very sorry if my approach is confusing. Honestly, it just seems to me that my approach, if anything, should limit the confusion.
I have had more people appreciate the line by line addressment than have disliked it.
Thanks for clarifying anal for your fellow members, and sorry for being anal, lol. No hard feelings I hope, Lilith. I just take the discussion seriously, and it is important in a discussion that everyone is clear as to their meaning.
God bless.

RE: Why Christianity is the most popular religion
Stop using semantics to create a false dilemma. You know good and well that I didn't mean that the word "new" wasn't in the Greek language - I was talking about the language in the verse.

Also, your arguments for a literal creation are regurgitated Ken Ham trite. Your mental gymnastics and bending of logic and theology are why the scientific world scoffs at Christians.

God took a common myth of the time and inspired it so that His people could understand His covenant.

The Akkadian's creation myth with Adapa long outdates the Hebrew creation story.

Quote:I would see moderate Islam as being about as socialised as moderate Christianity. It's extremes seem more extreme right now and perhaps more prevalent. It is also settling into new societies in a way that many members of western islamic congregations are either first or second generation immigrants in the West. This differs from Christianity in the West where most church members are likely to be many generations more integrated into the society. I think that introduces cultural opportunities, but also some short term risks due to the lesser integration.
You include the "extremes" as part of the religion, but I would just ask you: can both the moderates and the extremes truly follow the same God, and hold the same doctrine?

One side has to be wrong as to what their religion and their sacred texts actually teach, right?

I would suggest the beginnings of Islam more closely resemble the extremists than those that have westernized or, watered down their religion to make it more palatable to the world around them.

So what do we do with them? How do we determine which ones represent the teachings of Islam better?

I can only respond as follows:

Which of these doctrinal branches is the true Christianity? Smile

Give me your argument in the form of a published paper, and then we can start to talk.

Easy. The one I belong to.

Proof: If it wasn't, I'd be a member of the true sect and not this one, which is the true one.

Can it be all of them?

Is it possible that there can be many answers to one question…and all the answers can be all valid?

As I understand: Morality is subjective, so yes, I think it is possible.

RE: Why Christianity is the most popular religion
PS - That blank space was to show separation between my current post and my original post. Are you pretending to be daft? It's like... you're taking asinine minutia and making an issue out of it to try and distract from the fact that you aren't as knowledgeable as others in this thread.

Smoke and mirrors and slight of hand don't work here... maybe other places, but not here.
