Re: Have you ever read Bible?

Yes. It is actually quite an interesting work of society building written by humans.

Why? I don't care about Islam and I'm not bothered by it like you obviously are. So maybe you should do it and discuss things openly rather than in passive aggressive ways like you usually do. And besides my mind revolves around things other than Atheism v Christianity v Islam. My observation was merely based on that precise fact, that there's a whole world of religions/philosophies other than those.

Also, people don't criticize a religion unless that religion deserves it. Maybe you should be less sensitive about what people are saying about your religion and what people who follow your religion have done. I see no lies.

There is nothing passive aggressive about saying that you should start a discussion about another religion (or even atheism if you wish). That's very to the point. So miss me with that noise.

As for so-called Christians as someone else mentioned, that's like me saying that I am a German citizen when I've never been to Germany. That would make me a "so-called German", something which doesn't exist. Christ set out very clearly who is his follower (he didn't use the word Christian) but he also set out very clearly who is not his follower. So the term "so-called Christian" makes no sense.

And since this: "I find it odd that any religious discussion on TF is almost exclusively from the Christian perspective. And yet they have the nerve to complain." is an exact quote from your post, I do see lies. Deal with it or not. Your choice. And I'm in and out before the lock.

For Dante, it follows then, that the only way to get into Hell is to insist upon it. One must deliberately exclude himself from grace by hardening his heart against it. Hell is what the damned have actively and insistently wished for.

The man that hath no music in himself, nor is not moved with concord of sweet sounds is fit for treasons, stratagems and spoils. The motions of his spirit are dull as night and his affections dark as Erebus. Let no such man be trusted. Shakespeare

Re: Have you ever read Bible?

What? All I was saying was that all religious discussion here seems to be atheists v Christianity. Occasionally you'd get tensions exploding between Christian supporters and Muslim supporters. That's about it. It's an observation. I don't need to start any threads. You were the one that started talking about Islam, your obsession, not mine. Also, the other parts are in relation to your general posting habits rather than what's displayed in this thread. And yes, "in before the lock" is lame and boring. This wouldn't get locked, it's just you playing the victim when you're not one.

I don't mistake the internet for the real world. Therefore no one in cyberspace has ever victimized me, nor will they ever victimize me. Can't happen.

Hear Hear.

I prefer to victimise, it's more fun.

Re: Have you ever read Bible?

I have read the Bible from cover to cover. As a literary scholar, I have debated its teachings with preachers for years and stump them in every debate we have had. I once debated a Jehovah's Witnesses adherent and we placed a bet on who would win. I defeated him as easily as stepping on a roach. The guy never paid up and passed a way a few years later. Never got the money he owed me and could sure use it now. I have defeated Christian professing types so badly that I have been banned from several of their web forums!

America will never be destroyed from the outside. If we falter and lose our freedoms, it will be because we destroyed ourselves.

They've tried to convert me a lot of times including some Protestant friends of mine but I never get in debates. It's a waste of time.
