I just showed the comparison of evangelicals with our POTUS to those who helped the Nazis to power. Nothing at all with regard to character---but if you see something of your own character in that---then maybe the scales are being lifted from your eyes and you can find salvation.

But---remarkable comparison between what evangelicals desire and what those early Nazis desired, eh?

That's a fundamentalist fallback when they have lost in biblical debate. "Poor me, I win because I'm being "picked" on by people who know the Bible better than me."

Not a chance of letting anger and resentment against bigoted "bible-believers" go. God wants me to be His servant. Happiness is not necessarily part of the equation---service is. And showing up Pharisees for what they really are is exactly what God asks of me.

But I trust in God whether I'm happy or not.

Paul doesn't call followers of Jesus "Christians." He calls them "in Christ." It suggests intimacy with Jesus that a Bible cannot convey.

Your kind of "faith" is not marked by trust in our Creator. Your kind of "faith" doesn't make for healthy relationships with others. On the surface anyone can see pride, arrogance, and belligerence, but those are but symptoms of your deeper fear---a fear of being wrong and what might happen as a result.

I have no fear of being wrong because I TRUST my Redeemer. I don't have to be "right" to feel loved and accepted. But you do.

Trust in God casts out fear and cultivates a life of trust that flourishes in spite of how certain we feel.

You really should make up your mind, instead of twisting things around - it makes you look stupid. And, I was not the person who was interested in terminating another persons employment.

Biblical debate

No, I'm good. This is a problem for you, not me. You are the one with the anger/resentment problem.

No need to apologize, we know you twist things to suit your own agenda.

As Jerwade so astutely observed---you have always been a twister on these threads. No good thing from God will ever pass your consciousness.

You are nothing if not a "religious." If it's in the Bible and awful---you own it, live it, eat it, and imagine it.

You are "righteous" in your eyes, that's why Jesus doesn't know you.

Me, I'm just a sinner and grateful for His grace.

If I only had a whip to drive fundamentalists from their money-grubbing, power-loving, arrogance-----you represent them to a T

I'm sure you can find a whip, or even a gun, to fulfill your fantasies.

Nope, Jesus didn't use a gun on Pharisees---He used a sharp tongue and quick wit. Nothing more is needed.
Please add "disgust" to the terms you apply to me. It is far more apropos than anger.

Your complete self-serving hypocrisy is deserving of disgust. Stick with Jerwade. He is far nicer than me.

To believers "religion" is not a good thing. Religion is man under his own power attempting to reach God. A lesson in futility. God through His completed work on the cross and His gift of grace has extended His hand to man and offers eternity with Him to all who earnestly seek Him..........just believe

I am not talking about Jesus, I am talking about you saying this:

Having violent fantasies/desires is not a good thing. It is a self-imposed burden.

Disgust towards others is certainly another 'fruit' of yours. It goes hand in hand with anger and resentment.

By their fruits you shall know them.

It's amazing you don't see the irony in all this.
