Why is it ok to insult the God they worship, and suggest they insane to worship him?
This kind of talk is what I call "the universalist love language".
I doubt Jesus would tell you to make comments like that. Someone else must be putting that in your head.
Your misrepresentations (actually lies) are very annoying. Do you honestly NOT think the more barbaric and grotesque descriptions of God and His commands in the OT describe an entity unworthy of worship? Or do you simply ignore them and pretend they are irrelevant? Do you have any independent thought or standards about the God you are willing to worship? Sad, very sad.

I quoted your post so people can see what you wrote. What's annoying is seeing you say nasty things, only to walk them back 5 mins later along with accusations of being misrepresented.

I worship Christ, but Jews worship the God of OT, which you say is not worthy of worship by any sane person. Those are your own words. Own them! Its a nasty thing to say, no matter how much you disagree with their views. I don't agree with islam, but I don't have any desire to go around insulting their god, or the people who worship that god. If I did, I'd be banned.

Really? Why did you avoid the question about sacrifices Finn?

I didn't avoid it. It went over your head.

Whether or not they do sacrifices does not change the God they worship. They still worship the same God. The God of Abraham, Isaak, Jacob and Moses, the one Mystic says no sane person would worship (such God is not worthy of worship by any sane person - Mystic).

That would be the G-dcof Avraham, Yitzchak and Yaacov, no Moses involved in that...

You are right, I did miss it or I would have noted HOW you avoided the question: I stopped when you said theyworship God in the way it is described in the OT. I did not realize that you had directly contradicted that assertion. The question was not about which God they worship, but HOW they worship, and sacrifice was an integral part of OT worship. So, no, you didn't avoid mentioning sacrifice you just avoided the question that was actually asked. We are all used to that by now.

You continue to repeat the big lie and we have to continue to point out that you are doing so. Keep it up, dishonesty is a good basis for evaluating.
Lol, you can do some laundary with that spin cycle.

The 2things that stand out that in which you are consistent; attack the Elect and (true) Church, and defend and agree with the mockers. There is another creature that does the same that is mentioned several times in the Scriptures. He is not role model that I would recommend for you

I would rather attack lies held by those you call the true church than impugn the love and integrity of God they way you do.

You deliberately ignore that fact that it is the primitive and barbaric DESCRIPTIONS of God that are not worthy of worship NOT the God of Jesus as He revealed and demonstrated unambiguously! You retain the beliefs about God born of the ancient ignorance of our primitive ancestors and reject the Truth revealed by Jesus. How is that following Christ???

I said nothing about the way they worship God. I said they worship the OT God. You brought up the sacrifices and other irrelevant issues.

The question was not about which God they worship, but HOW they worship
My ONLY point is which God they worship (the one which Mystic says is not worthy of worship by any sane person). If you want to talk about something else, you can talk with someone else.

In the other hand, considering the comments you are trying to justify, it is no surprise you'd prefer to change the topic.
