No it is about believing the bible, its like the core of this whole debate. Its also good to be respectful to each other to but when you make these little comments about not about believeing the bible when its really kind of hard to take you seriously or even intelligently.Originally Posted by Squall7
the so called fact you stated previously is that i have it. you dont even know and the experiences ive been through my whole life and by a few posts you can tell i have it. c'monOriginally Posted by Squall7
well it was a whole different ball game and some serious stuff was going on so God has his reasons. he killed a lot of people who choose a life of evil back then. Jesus was baptised as part of his teachings. How can i discuss civily if you make agruments that dont add up like brawny what branwy said you were doing. Just a lot of your statements are showing you dont no much about christianity and getting confused with sterotypes like you did with condemning gays and stuff.Originally Posted by Squall7
Trust me i dont do narcotics and am against its use. You'll probably think this is b/s but when i got baptised and excepted Jesus i felt overwhelmed by the holy spirit. it was the most amazing feel i have ever had. My life changed for the better to like when i commit a sin and help me realize mistakes I make and learn from them. Giving up summer vacations back in high school to work for free repairing houses and other construction work on people houses that are living in poverty. thats only a little bit, but like i said you wouldnt understand just by reading a post. All i can do here is talk the talk when you dont see me walk the walk. Christ is the best thing thats ever happened to me.Originally Posted by Squall7
well i took it as a compliment because i love my country and our freedom. Jesus says to obey our government and if it tells us to do evil things than it is better to be persicuted and sent to prison than do those evil things. Jesus would never tell me to stop them if it invovled commiting a sin to do itOriginally Posted by Squall7
i dont believe im above another, i'm just a miserable sinner like everyone else. Just saved by grace.Originally Posted by Squall7
never said i was better than you, just forgiven by grace. Yeah i know Christians are not all the same, never said they were. You tell the difference by the one that talk the talk and walk the walk and the ones that dont.Originally Posted by Squall7
well i do because mine is an absolute truth. How do you know what Christianity preaches so well. I think your fooling yourself. Lets make this easier for you to understand:Originally Posted by Squall7
1. I dont believe one should force another's religion on someone but share it with the willing
2. I get along hanging out with others with different beliefs and if we don't accept each others beliefs, simply dont talk about. I believe my actions speak louder than words anyway.
3. If someone commits a sin (excluding misdemnors and felonies in our law like murder) i dont start yelling your going to hell or condemning them. that business is between them and God. Love the sinner hate the sin.
yea i'd say thats tolerant enough
Nah I believe on i'm the right track. I'm not understanding you cause you dont make much sense when it comes to me and why i believe it is an absolute truth. Brawny sums up why. Get over it. sheesh.Originally Posted by Squall7
I'm sure God did. Stupid Satan started all this mess to begin with. Well he sent Jesus and I'm glad he did. Thankful to since the worlds getting more and more corrupt everyday. Jesus will take care of that when he returns though. Lets see, before Jesus there were the prophets to teach about sin.Originally Posted by Squall7
