You have unanswered posts in dozens of threads. You could continue to make a fool of yourself in those threads instead of grave-digging.

Edited by ringo, : Added quote to clarify.

If you'd been abducted by aliens as often as I have...


So you lie again. In this post you said, "I don't believe in aliens".

... you'd leave a few threads unanswered too.


Nope.

I answer every post to me, to the point of being pretty annoying sometimes.

Are you worried, like Faith, that the culture is going over to "the dark side"?

Phat writes:

It is intrinsic to the fallen nature to deny that God exists.


There is no "fallen nature". You're calling God a liar.

No. Technically I'm calling the spirit the runs you around a liar.


No. This has nothing to do with me. When you talk about "the Fall", you're calling God a liar because He said Adam and Eve had become more like Him. That is not a "Fall".

Phat writes:

It masquerades as rational and logical yet denies Jesus Christ ...


Denying Jesus Christ is rational and logical. Belief is not.

Phat writes:

... and shepherds you into a secular evidence-based world view which ordinarily would be fine...healthy, even.


Accepting reality is always fine, healthy even.

Phat writes:

The key that this spirit isn't of God is that it denies Jesus Christ.


And you deny God when he says there was no "Fall". So why would we pay any attention to what you think the "spirit of God" is?

Phat writes:

God never said that. you interpreted the scripture to say that.


Don't lie. The scripture does say that. Here it is again, for the umpteenth time:
quote:
Genesis 3:22 And the Lord God said, Behold, the man is become as one of us, to know good and evil: and now, lest he put forth his hand, and take also of the tree of life, and eat, and live for ever:
Note: "The man is become as one of us..." That is not an interpretation. It is an exact quote.

Phat writes:

It is your little demon...masquerading as God...who is misleading this conversation.


And yet I am the one who is quoting scripture.

Phat writes:

So why should we pay any attention to it?


I couldn't care less what you pay attention to. But as long as you keep lying about the Bible, I'm going to point out your lies.

Are you really going to continue to deny Christ and listen to that little thing?


Are you really going to continue to deny reality?

Phat writes:

The serious part of all of this is that it has you convinced that it is you.


You're seriously going around the bend now. There is no "it". There is no "thing". You're being paranoid. You need to get help.

Re: I'll Try And Answer Honestly...
What percentage of christians do you think have ever read their bible? I mean actually read it cover to cover.

I don't know. My mother read it through once a year or so, but I don't think she paid much attention to doctrine. My father certainly read it through and knew it well. (He may have had the same memory for trivia that I do. )

Not just taking verses out of context.

What bugs me is that they tend to think the "overall context" overrides the local context. That gives them leeway to impose their "overall" interpretation on anything.
