Looking for a fight and to start controversies whenever you can. I mean, what is the real point of your questions? You ask us something then proceed to mock us for our responses. You criticize and judge us for our beliefs and then the next day, you turn around and do the same thing as if the issues you had has been resolved even though it hasn't. So my thing is, I want to know why your here and what you want. I see right through people's BS. And so far, I won't say what your doing is BS but it sure seems like it. The last time I tried to address all Atheist on this matter, I was surprised my fellow Christians attacked me for it. Perhaps I didn't word it right. But now after observing you for some time, to me, your intentions are screwed up and not for good purposes. It doesn't seem like you wish to learn anything. It seems more like you have an itch on your shoulders and you want to take it out on us. Like most Atheist do. I can name several who do the same things. If that is your intention, you can take your frustrations and grievances to the Atheist forum which would serve you much better and be around people more to your linking and mentality.
He just asks questions and that is a good thing. We should all think about what we believe because not everyone believes the same thing yet many of us believe in the same
G-d.

Who says those who come to this forum really want to learn anything? I often come over here and leave shaking my head at what I have read because it often is full of the antigonism you are accusing him of.

You just need to learn how to distinguish between the two and not be so judgmental, that's not your job.

Your job is to be a good witness, and love everyone. And that includes atheists, my friend. Love God and each other, remember?
Really nice post, Ilene..

Doubts lead to the truth.



Your welcome SC, we have to stick together through all of this doubt and confusion and help each other, not bicker and fight about the minuscule stuff that really has no bearing on anything, especially salvation.
amen

So your telling me that you have respect for them even though they have no respect for you?? I'm sorry but that's not it works in my hood and where I grew up. If someone disrespected you, they gets no respect. Period. I will never respect anyone that talks about me and what I believe behind my back and the wants to come back and ask me questions like their innocent. You must be kidding me.

No I'm not kidding you, you didn't quote what I said at the end.....LOVE God and each other. That doesn't mean just your own kind Allen, that means EVERYONE. You are not showing Christ at all.

allen...just a question.do you think you can bring anyone around to your way of thinking if you set yourself apart from them? Jesus didn't do that..but to draw a line in the sand with others means it is very hard for them to see your side of the fence.that's why it's important to get along with others,even when you disagree.I've seen this on so many forums,and only a few actually 'get it'.JAT.I'm not critisizing you,I just want to give you something to consider.

I do tend to shake my head at the way you all argue over here... It does give me a chuckle...
You can't be this dunce. Your book is the Torah. And although the Torah may contain some of the word of God in it, it does not have the FULL word of God, therefore it does not have the truth!!
