Ha, yup, thought so.

No true Scotsman.

As I said...it's the Christian Wars. They never end. You guys think you have your hands full fighting with us non-Christians, but really, you're busy enough bickering with one another about who's "right" about Jesus.

Anyway, hope you win. Best of luck.

No forum rules on that so you cannot violate them None. Zilch. No worries.

Which organization came to pay you a visit, Viz?
Either the JWs or LDS come to my door periodically...I can never remember which they are, I just know I always get it wrong and it always annoys Katzpur, I think it is...so maybe he'll be along to clarify...it's the ones with the ties and white shirts...

Anyway, next time they come to my door, I think I'm going to throw a Bible at them and scream "You're not a Christian!"

That will surprise them.

You didn't get the memo? People who believe what Viz believes are Christians. Millions of people, including those whose religion actually has "Jesus Christ" in the title, don't make the cut.

But.... not to worry. God didn't get the memo either.

Easy, you two.

Or the self-proclaimed pastor will start ducking and running from all your posts too.

We should also let Him know that even the above are no longer to be considered "real Christians" if their sins make the news and are particularly gross, i.e. they involve children.

Of course you don't. You've decided who is a Believer and who isn't. If someone doesn't fall in line with your thinking.....non-believer! Hell awaits! They don't get to Heaven!

Sooooo....Viz.....did you grab the people who came to visit you and plead with them to believe what you believe? Did you ask them to please, please, please dump their religion so Satan wouldn't drag them to hell?

Or did you sit down to dinner and announce, "They're insert the 'wrong' religion here and going to hell. Pass the peas."

He went to their Service.

They were sacrificing chickens and talking about how Jesus is just a silly idea.

Darned non-believers.

I don't, no. I do not have the ability to say who is and is not a Christian. But these people do not believe in Biblical Christianity. They said that themselves.

You've been talking to Jeff! He's unhappy with me too. Oh, well.



p.s. If I actually believed people were going to burn in hell forever I'd do whatever was necessary to save them. I wouldn't be spending my time on the internet making veiled references to certain religions and proclaiming them "non-believers". And I wouldn't follow-up by making false claims about forum rules to dodge questions. It's odd to me you believe people could be in hell FOREVER and you spend your time on the internet arguing with people about who is a Believer and who isn't and complaining about what I post. Meanwhile.... the faiths you deride as non-believers , LDS and JW's, ARE trying to save people from hell.

I'm glad when no one (except family, friends & neighbors) knocks on my door.
