Re: The Number 666 is Perfect Exact Unassailable Gematria For the Pope
quote:

Here's another contribution to the deep darkness of irrational thinking the world is trying so hard to extinquish these days.

It certainly is irrational, and very dark.

quote:

In some cases if the Greek alphabet doesn't work they try the Hebrew and maybe that will work. I think he said Hebrew works for Nero. But why on earth should Nero be identified by the Hebrew alphabet?

Because Gematria is Hebrew of course. If you want to do “perfect gematria” why would you use any other alphabet ?

quote:

And I don't know why the system I've posted on so many times isn't better known, or if it is known why it isn't accepted. It is perfection itself. There is no need to manipulate the letters and numbers because Latin has a system of Roman numerals based on its letters that is solidly established.

One obvious reason is that it only assigns values to 7 letters. That’s a big weakness and makes it far from perfect. In fact that severe deficiency is an obvious reason why it isn’t used.

quote:

And when it is applied to the LATIN title for Vicar of Christ, VICARIVUS FILII DEI, for the ROMAN Pope, who is also called by the ROMAN title Pontifex Maximus, it adds up to 666 without any manipulations whatever.


That would be VICARIUS FILII DEI. Which only adds up to 661. (And why ignore the fact that Roman numerals are not usually read by simple adding - the order matters. 106 is CVI. IV is four, not six.)

quote:

By that name he usurps the role of Christ since scripture says Christ and Christ alone is the Head of the Church, and by the title Vicar of Christ he usurps the role of Christ

Obviously not to anyone who understands the role. And you know that.

The usual answer is that the calculations are “off” usually with an assertion tha5 it will happen in six months or a years time.

I wonder if she’ll ask the others how often the “calculations have been off” for them. I wouldn’t be at all surprised if it was well into double figures for some.

“Good” can be a relative term and since Faith should lead to works I think it is clear that genuine Christians should be better than average. As you say:

quote:

Faith is not just empty belief, it is being changed, born again, to follow Christ.

But all we see in you is the epitome of empty belief - so long as we are talking about Christian belief.

I would assume that if God exists he is quite capable of seeing the obvious. And you have made it so very obvious.

You do worse with less cause and aren’t punished for it.

Re: Salvation By Grace Through Faith Leads To Works
quote:

I can see where you, being an atheist, focus more on ourselves as being our judge and I have no problem with this philosophy and in fact adapt it to myself.

It is hardly as if Christians in general refrain from judging. Just look at what Faith is saying about me. And it’s hardly the only time she’s made false accusations. Her treatment of Edge, for instance.

But it is a fact that Faith frequently makes false claims, without excuse. It is a fact that she loves lurid accusations made against those she hates - regardless of the evidence (that’s why she likes Alex Jones, Ann Coulter and Chiniquy to name three obvious examples). It is a fact that she happily employs double standards when they are convenient to her.

I submit that even if humans are all morally grey, some are black enough to say that they fall short of where a Christian should be. Or the whole idea of a transforming grace, that - let us not forget - should be evident in works, is called into serious question.

Re: We Can Work It Out?
Faith isn’t talking about Jesus punishing. She’s talking about Percy punishing. There is a difference.

Re: Salvation By Grace Through Faith Leads To Works
quote:

Here it is evident that I'm "bad" for holding a different political point of view.

By which you mean that you are consumed with a vicious hatred for people who hold differing political views. That is why - to use just one example - you considered Pizzagate plausible even after it had been exposed - and despite the fact that it was never anything more than wild accusations invented on the internet.

That’s as clear a demonstration of hypocrisy as I’ve ever seen.

And that is where Jesus’ “do not judge” comes in. It’s a warning that God will judge you as you judge others.

Re: Salvation By Grace Through Faith Leads To Works
quote:

You are making wild nasty assertions without even a shred of evidence

There’s nothing wild about them as you well know.

You’ve admitted that I was right that you love Alex Jones, Ann Coulter and Chiniquy and I hardly need to point out that they all produce lurid accusations that you are prepared to endorse.

Making claims you should know to be false? That’s easy. Message 49 (The fact that you were trying to defend a troll without even understanding that he was almost certainly equating Punctuated Equilibria with saltation - and end up inventing an irrational and mistaken reason to call PE “magic” is just the icing on the cake).

quote:

You should be banned for them in any case...

And again you demonstrate your hypocrisy.

Faith if you are only against illegal uncontrolled immigration then why did you write this: Message 310


Immigration part of conspiracy to destroy Christian civlization

I’d be very surprised if that was limited to illegal immigration.

Or maybe Chris Pinto is a raving Islamophobe. (Or maybe worse. Who does he say is behind this “conspiracy” ? “International Bankers”?)

Nevertheless describing immigration as “part of conspiracy to destroy Christian civilisation” seems like sufficient reason to doubt the idea that you are only against illegal immigration.

If I thought we'd legally support immigration policies that would clearly destroy our culture then I'd oppose that too.

And what policies would those be ?

quote:

Interesting how people who are concerned about such things as preserving our culture, which includes our Constitution, are now the target of accusations of such PC epithets as "Islamophobia" and so on.

Religious freedom is part of the Constitution, remember ? Amazing how some people object to the truth.

quote:

The sad thing is that people deny that it is a totalitarian power-hungry ideology that won't stop until it's subjugated the entire world.

I’m sure that you are always sad when people aren’t fooled by your propaganda. But thanks for providing more evidence of raving Islamophobia.
