You feel sick, because you allow anger and resentment control your mind.

It must be terrible to live like that.

Seek the Lord, and find rest.

“Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am gentle and humble of heart; and you will find rest. For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light.”
And all foreigners are liars, right. The woman even pointed out that the date of her posting was 2018. But she is a liar because you are a smart -ass and she is a stupid foreigner. And I don't witness what she testified to when I return to Alabama a month of every year. Wherever you've lived, it's not been in Alabama, Mississippi, or Louisiana where all my paternal family reside. Or perhaps those blinkers on your eyes mean you just see people like yourself---most knowing the bible supports their bigotry.

Praise the Lord and Heil Trump!

My anger comes from God and is directed at self-righteous, two-faced, twisters and dodgers. And, no, I'm not always happy with that calling, but like Jonah I am called to preach to the pagans of Ninevah. And like Jonah, I see no way Ninevah (you) can come to terms with God.

But then Jonah was wrong, and Ninevah did repent. Perhaps God sees some small sliver of hope for you that I can't.

At least you'd better hope so.

If you seek out Christians and start calling their God a monster, and suggesting they are no different than a Westboro Baptist fringe group, or compare then to nazis, you would get fired. No one wants people like that at the workplace. Likewise, it you harass muslims because of their faith, or jews, mormons etc, you'd get fired.

How is this so complicated?

Can you answer my question now? Would you tolerate it?
I hope evangelicals telling folk at their workplace that they are deserving of hell because they are sinners, are told keep it and you will be fired.

True, when i was a zealous fundy i always told folk in the work place about Jesus, heaven and hell, like you said though it does not belong in the work place.

On a open forum like this, yes, in the workplace no. Is that so difficult for you to understand?. This forum is not the work place.

to the original question.

Quote:
Until recently,I have always thought that Christianity is a Religion. In fact even in a dictionary, it says so. But much to my surprise, the Evangelists nowadays insist Christianity is not a religion at all. Why this recent change in nomenclature? And at what point did it change? After all, Christianity has been seen as a Religion for so many centuries. So why the sudden change?
religion is a coat people put on every day they worship, pray whatever their religion does to honor themselves or whatever it is that religion honors. but it can never be more than a coat someone wears. it will never change the inner soul. it can and does change the body habits and why in order to have "peace " they have to live in monasteries where no one can speak.. or they control their life more and more.

but relationships change our inner being.. love and connection to a loving God and as (He/ by His Spirit )has us touch each other with prophetic words , songs, words of knowledge ( about their internal hidden personal struggles ) and such .. it can touch past the mind , past control and past their habits.. then into the soul and change it .. touch into the heart of man and really change it.. then his people don't have to control their environment and live in monasteries to KNOW and have and share HIs "PEACE" that is past understanding .
thus Christianity is like a great marrage touching and healing into the inner being ..

and all other religion is like a friday night booty call.. but you go back to being your " normal" lonely "controlling" self when it is done just to maintain " peace" your way, like the bloody Pax Romana .https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pax_Romana which proved to be very very bloody..

And if you behaved in the workplace like you do here, you'd get your nose broken.

Nice edit, if you called folk sinners on here and they are damned to hell if they do not believe in Jesus(deny it as much as you want), you too would be fired. Thankfully this is an open forum where there are folk posting from their own perspective of how they see God and that is perfectly fine and acceptable. You should stop painting Jerwade like he doing anything other than exposing what is behind your beliefs, that you try to be so coy about. I have said it before, many have posted on here longer than you and remember the beliefs you posted that you are so coy about now, AND the things you use to say about universalists.

Very simple.

Read it in context without your silly green suckers and childish behavior.

People do not like others lying about them or twisting their words, so I would imagine on a construction site, he would get more than a broken nose. And if I was there, I would have to save him from a can of whoop-ass and his own destruction. They would put him in an outhouse or porta-john and turned it over on its door.
