But I pray for you as I would pray for my enemies. You are the enemy who seethes with hatred toward me. Your every word is attempted murder.

Dude. Seriously. Chill.

You are going from merely silly to outrageous absurdity! He is rather politely pointing out the general silliness of your latest position (He was entirely right, and you were demonstrably wrong), and you equate his disagreement to attempted murder?

Faith! Get a grip.

Anyone who talks to a person on a forum the way you do should be severely punished, but you won't be will you?

No, Faith, he won't be. Again, the threats and venom that drip from your mouth always just make me ever grateful that you were not in power 500 years ago when the church still had some political credibility.

Free speech is a bedrock of American democracy. You should read the First Amendment sometime. Maybe read it just after you read Deuteronomy or Leviticus to contrast fundamental American values with Old Testament Theocracy.

Hint: America wins.

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.

Re: loving God
ISIS murders "infidels," God punishes sin, sin of both believers and unbelievers.

No matter. However much lipstick you put on that pig, both your version of God and theirs leaves butchered babies and pregnant mothers bleeding out on the desert floor.

You truly never tire of defending religious genocide?

Re: loving God
The problem is your inability to distinguish between murder and judgment as is usually the case in these discussions.

So when when ISIS leaves dead babies behind it's murder; when Christians or Jews do it it's Justice. Got it.

You know who else can't comprehend that fine line you draw? The uncomprehending dead babies bleeding into the sand. You are one cold mother...

Re: loving God
When ISIS kills people it is absolutely murder. When God ordains death it is often judgment...

There is a huge difference between murder and God's justice.

Please keep your language consistent Faith. You are hiding behind vague language which I shall clarify for you.

"When ISIS kills people, it is absolutely murder. When Jews or Christians kill people, it is God's justice."

or

When the Arab God ordains children's death it is murder. When my God ordains children's' death, it is justice.

I cry a lot all the time about misfortunes and sufferings I merely read about in the news.

You cry for the children of Jericho as you applaud the soldiers marching out to hack at them with swords. Well done there.

you seem to be having a problem not only distinguishing murder from justice but fact from value.

No Faith. ANYTIME anyone, human or superhuman, orders that children be slaughtered because of their parents' religion, it is evil and should be resisted to the bitter end. YOU are the one that seems to not understand that killing children over politics or religion is always evil.

I dare you to say it as clearly as you mean it. Take a firm stand. Yes or no to the following statement:

"It is sometimes good to kill children over their parents' politics or religion."

Will you answer this clearly?

No, I doubt you will...

Sidenote...
On a sidenote, can somebody tell me why I have suddenly stopped getting email notification of responses to my posts?

Thanks!

Re: Calvinism denies God’s Justice
So shoot me already. Get it over with.

Bleagh. Line us up and shoot us.

No Faith, no one wants to shoot you. We want you to live a long and healthy life, despite how vigorously we may disagree on issues. Remember that it is you, not us, arguing that it is sometimes good to kill children over their parents' religion, not us. YOU are the one defending the killing, not us.

Line us up and shoot us. We'll be better off than trying to deal with you all.

You would rather be dead than have to listen to us whine about how we shouldn't ever kill children?

You just go on judging God by your puny fallen standards. Bleagh.

Our strong opinions that we should keep our children safe, and protect them against those who wish them harm, is in your opinion "puny, and fallen" thoughts?

Re: Calvinism denies God’s Justice
Just more evidence of how utterly incorrigibly self-righteously wrong you are and everybody else here and how utterly futile and ugly is discussion on this subject.

This is actually true. You will never convince us that it was a good thing for Israel to kill Canaanite babies and kids. Killing children over religion and politics is evil. Every single time, it is only evil. You aren't changing our minds on this point; it is futile to try. But the ugly bit...I'm confused. Are you saying it is ugly for us to defend protecting children, or is it ugly for you to justify killing them?

I get so worn out from being accused of evils that are so far from anything I've thought or done in my life. It's exhausting, it's depressing.

Then stop trying to defend religious genocide!

Re: Sidenote...
Thank you! They aren't even going to junk mail. I know I rarely post, but the EvC emails are great reminders. I thought perhaps I had changed a setting somewhere that I couldn't find, and would be an easy fix.

Re: Sidenote...
Yes... thank you for that! I received e-mail notification of a couple more responses to posts I made the other day, so it's back working just fine. I'm just trying to work up the emotional energy to respond back to said posts... *sigh*
