That's what Jesus did when he was not arguing with the religious zealots!

Yeah ... Ironic is the key word.

ET'er #1 says, "The truth shall set you, and the truth is most people who have ever been born will be eternally tormented in everlasting hell."


ET'er #2 replies, "Amen and Amen and Amen, isn't God great! Praise God!"

Yeah, there is a 'Christian-ese' lingo. I know because the times I belonged to any church group I had to use it in order to be accepted and fit in. Can I get an Amen, brother? PRAISE Gawd! It is a sort of "group speak" that is supposed to make you feel you have been closer to God for having used all those phrases in every other sentence. It becomes very automatic and dare I say FAKE.

ps

I am not kidding about the dark ages , it's only because in many ways the world justice system has become more civil than the fundamental church system we are not frying at the stake .

And the LAW of Moses says, "and eye for an eye...and tooth for a tooth", but Jesus said, "verily, verily, I say unto you, if a brother hit you on the left cheek, give him your right cheek as well". Let's set a good example folks that we indeed abide by his LOVE and emulate the way our CHRIST lived and taught. He did not, does not, and will not subscribe to "burn in hell" doctrine!...AMEN and AMEN! There...

That's because Christ was successful. How much more Christlike can you get but to want equal rights for all and universal justice? Yet - the fundy hold-overs want to fight against "world" peace. Go figure.

"Blessed are the peacemakers, for it is they who will be recognized as children of God".
