Why do you care? If you don't believe the Bible, why do you condescend to hang out here? I just don't understand it.

Why shouldn't he? He makes interesting, intelligent posts. I enjoy them enormously. I do not understand the desire of the fundamentalists to muzzle everyone who doesn't agree with them.

( Well, I do but I'd rather not think about it because that's how fascist societies get built.)

If you don't like his posts, if you think he's condescending, quit reading his posts. NO ONE has to explain why they post to you or anyone else. Though, if he tells us, I'm quite sure it will be an interesting read and well-worth the band width.

No one is trying to muzzle anyone. I'm just trying to understand the motivation behind it.

The funny thing is that you fail to see the correlation to the pro-gay Nazis suppressing anyone that dares to object to homosexuality.

I was asking why he would condescend -- meaning to "slum it". I didn't say the posts were condescending.

He has complete freedom to post here--it's not my decision to allow or disallow anyone. I'm just attempting to understand the warped mindset that drives someone whose sole purpose is shred the faith of others.

Vizio, I post here for what I suppose is pretty much the same reasons you do: to propose ideas I believe to be true, or at least worth pondering, to ask questions to which I'd like an answer and to oppose those whose message I believe to be false, misleading and/or malicious.

(Dew, you're a peach.)

Do you do the same with the Islam forum? Or any other? I bet your a fixture in the Car forums, aren't you? You love to tell everyone why they shouldn't drive a Ford, don't you?

Who said anything about "better?"

Oh yeah.

You.

The Bible also said He will have all men to be saved, and come to the knowledge of the truth (1 Tim 2:4), so what now?

Even if you use a translation that says He "wants" all men to be saved, that same translation will say that God gets what He wants...

That's why the debate continues...

I have never owned a Hyundai, but I did help wire the plant and several changes and upgrades at the plant where the Sonata and Santa Fe is made. They seem to be fairly good cars. Not like an American designed rear wheel drive full size car but for what it is. I installed and wired the lights that light the side of the building so you can read the name "Hyundai" from I-65.

Those Koreans love Kimchi and smoking cigarettes.

So you choose to ignore the fascism of the pro-gay Nazi crowd?
