Re: Salvation By Grace Through Faith Leads To Works
You are making wild nasty assertions without even a shred of evidence. You should be banned for them in any case, but where's your evidence? Quote me.

Yes. The Christians have a long history of silencing all critics. And when it had actual political power, the silencing often took the form of imprisonment or murder. Fortunately for those who call you out on your bullshit, you can only bash in ALL CAPS on your computer.

Can I also gently remind you, that your critics here were entirely correct, and you were entirely wrong? Almost no one on planet Earth was gullible or silly enough to truly think that a particular religious sect was going to magically poof away to Paradise to get married to, and celebrate the wedding by eating Supper with a Spiritual Lamb in the last couple of days.

You were one of those people though, and this is the language of Revelation.

If people chuckle at your absurdity, try to just roll with it and pretend they are persecuting you. If you pretend persecution with a better attitude, you may get a better pretend reward. Maybe even a pretend martyr's crown. That's also in Revelation.

abe: On a serious note Faith, I was really happy to hear about your successful eye surgery, and am truly glad your vision is going better for you.

Like PaulK and like jar you just sling a lot of vicious accusations and offer no evidence.

it hasn't for the last 2.000 years. It hasn't on the numerous times it's been predicted. It didn't this week despite your 'omens'. It won't within your lifetime and it won't ever.

You've proved it yourself.

Which, of course, is a lie.

Look Faith, we get that you are an evil lying hypocrite. I just dont get why you think that demonstrating that again and again will silence your critics. It has failed again and again.

I get away with it because its true. You might better ask why you get away with your false accusations.

So I was wrong? You're actually for immigration, for LGBT rights, for affordable health care for everyone, for racial equality, and for diversity? However did I pick up such misimpressions?

Because you've bought into Political correctness. Yes I'm for reasonable standards of legal immigration that enhance rather than destroying our western civilization. If people want to come here and assimilate, and love our Constitution and our culture, they ought to be welcome.

I'm for LGBT rights that don't force the rest of us to treat their unnatural behaviors as normal. They should be protected from harm, but not allowed to force their way of life on the rest of us.

A big problem with "affordable health care" is that it isn't affordable.

I'm absolutely unequivocally for racial equality. Sheesh.

I think "diversity" is just a PC term that obscures the Leftist Agenda of destroying Christian culture.

I'm against illegal uncontrolled immigration,...

Who isn't. So immigration of Muslims, Hindus, Buddhists, pagans, atheists and LGBT's is fine by you?

I'm for accepting all who appreciate our western values and are willing to assimilate and adopt them, which is what happened with earlier generations of immigrants. But that very concept is denied in our postmodern leftist world. It is pernicious naivete to think that all cultures are equal and especially all ideologies, since there are totalitarian ideologies such as Islam that seek to overthrow every religious and political system but Islam.

...I'm against gay marriage not against general rights for gays,...

I said LGBT, but speaking of gays, how is denying wedding cakes and marriage to gays not denying them a right? How is denying transgender bathroom rights not denying them a right? How is banning transgender people from the military not denying them a right?

We obey God who defines marriage. That's the way it is. Marriage is for a man and a woman and you can fine us out of business or put us in prison or execute us at dawn but those of us who recognize this basic Biblical worldview aren't backing down. We will serve gays ANYTHING except something that validates this travesty of the ordinance of marriage. Perhaps you should hope for the Rapture to come very soon so our objections won't be such a thorn in the side of those who aspire to the Coming Pagan World Order.

Sometimes one group's rights have to give way to another's. While in one way I don't really see a problem with transgenders using the bathroom of their choice -- IF THEY CAN GET AWAY WITH IT WITHOUT ALARMING ANYONE -- I also know that it freaks out kids to find the opposite sex in their bathroom and I'm for protecting kids.

I'm absolutely in favor of racial equality,...

So you condemn the white nationalist/supremicist march in Charlottesville last year, and you condemn Trump's failure to condemn it?

I would if I were absolutely convinced that is the right understanding of it, but given our PC environment of slinging around the PC epithets such as "racist" I'm simply not sure what really happened there and who is to blame. However, I'm certainly opposed to white supremacy.

I suppose the most ironic result would be the atheists that led decent lives suddenly finding themselves 200 feet in the air and rising whilst the holier-than-thou evangelicals watch in disgust.

Bad ending for both parties I guess.

Don't know if this issue has been brought up yet, but could you please quote chapter and verse where the Bible refers to this "rapture." Please feel free to take your time.

That being said, please notice my address change in my profile. Getting the hell out of pig ignorant ugly and evil West Texas for beautiful New Mexico - Now that is truly a rapture.

IF this is true, do you believe that it is fair for Jesus to only protect those who believe in Him or do you believe that we all should be judged by our works and behavior?


Again it comes down to what it really means to "believe in Him". Should He protect those who only parrot, "Lord!Lord!" or should He protect those who embrace His message?

He has already answered that question - but if you reject His message, you'll miss the answer.
