Read it. It's not worth even keeping as kindling to start the burn barrel out back. It's horrible.


And it's also full of a lot of heretical stuff.
A change in the wind! Shall we expect Mary Poppins? First you'd only "heard of a few" of the books listed. Now you've read a few of them and the most popular Christian book in decades is full of, in your opinion, heretical..... "stuff".

I'm not surprised. The message God is love is something most people with your beliefs scorn.

They often are. Two of the most intelligent posters on CD are atheists.

I know they are atheists because they've stated they are. I know they are highly intelligent because my family has several people with genius-level IQ's and it's easy for me to pick out who is exceptionally intelligent and who isn't. I grew up listening to geniuses discuss any number of topics at the supper table. You learn to pick out the frauds and the wannabees.

Nonsense! You should take that back! We feed & clothe the poor. We care for & adopt orphans (and foster kids). We provide care for special-needs kids & their families. We care for widows (and widowers). We provide financial assistance to single moms & others in need. Etc.... All paid for out of our own tithes & offerings.

I wasn't aware your beliefs are the same as Vizio's. You seldom pop in and give him a big high five, and say "Amen! I believe that too!" when he posts his beliefs.


If you believe God is love...good for you.

It's the truth.

If you choose to think I'm lying or wrong... whatever. You get to think what you want. I don't care.
