Sweet.
What magic words did she say?

No, the definition is not wide. You can be a cultural Christian, or one who has a relationship ith Christ.

If asked, I used to use that term to describe myself; however, these days I've become rather hesitant to do so. I'm not sure what a "Christian" is nowadays. I do know what it was originally intended to mean.
It certainly seems so. For instance, Moderator cut: Sorry, but Politics is not the topic for this forum.

Oh, c'mon Finn. You don't do "coy" very well at all. I was referring to The Magic Words To Jesus that all good fundies say when they're "born again."

If you don't know them, if you haven't said them, you might be in real trouble after that last breath rattles its way out of your lungs.

We are talking about the woman in the Biblical story. She did not say any magic words. Clearly you are only trying to ridicule Christians, which is all you ever do.

I wish you'd stop lying. It hurts Jesus.

I don't ridicule Christians. I hold a mirror in front of fundies' faces in an effort to get them to open their eyes and brains and see themselves as others see them.

So far, no luck. But I didn't become a pro fisherman without exercising an exorbitant amount of patience and persistence.

Christians huh, ya know Christians will go out of their way for people, Christians show love ESPECIALLY when they are not shown love, what was it Jesus said? ''What good have you done if you are kind to people you love and then you treat you friends with love, respect and a desire to listen?, but then those who you don't know, you treat another way?

Jesus pretty much tells us how lame we are in that the whole world loves their family and friends, and there is ZERO credits again to loving your friends and family, but what happens when you show love to those who despise who, or people who disagree with you? Haven't you gained treasure by showing love to people who bust ya balls? What good is it to show love to your own people.

OK, I can help you, from now on, let's both see who can flirt with Trout more.

I MEAN GIVE US AN EXAMPLE IN HOW WE ARE TAUGHT? I don't know, tell me you love me, and that you love Trout and how cool he is, and how you would like to earnestly listen to his opinion. How are we supposed to act? Aren't we known by our love? LOL, Can't help myself.


After all, don't you want to gain treasure in heaven?

You could try discussing the topic as opposed to holding things in people's faces. The forum rules say something about it.

There are no magic words, only a sincere heart.
