Re: the classic compartmentalization of Biblical Christianity

You will likely say that this is fake, though I know for a fact that it is real.

How? your assertions appear free of any evidence.

Phat, I asked you to read the Gospel According to Matthew, not the Necronomicon by H.P. Lovecraft.

I'm glad I don't believe in boogeymen and demons instead of physics and biology. Makes me a better person.

If you don't know what you're doing, find someone who does, and do what they do.

Re: Why You People Think The Way You Do

You claim to believe in and follow your "Jesus", though you seem to have a unique "Jesus" different from others' and certainly different from what's in the Bible (which you choose to ignore when it gets inconvenient) and whom you created for your own personal use (while claiming that he actually exists, unlike all the other Jesuses). And yet you adamantly refuse to follow his teachings.

Couldn't have said it better.

You're in a union! Where do you think that unions come from and how they were formed? You already worship at "the altar of socialism" and serve it.

Plus, it would help if you were to try to learn something about "the S-word" that you throw about so easily. I don't think it means what you think it means.

As a card-carrying member of the Democratic Socialists of America, I can tell anyone curious what it means to me. I didn't learn socialism from Karl Marx, I learned it primarily from Jesus Christ.

Perhaps that is what Phat is afraid of.

Show me how we would even test all of the various religions to see if a clear winner exists?

Read the entirety of the Bible, Torah, Quran, Tao, Bhagavad Gita (and Mahabarata), and any other text that is central to that given religion. Compare/contrast, map to reality, see what works best.

That's what Joseph Campbell did, that is what I am doing.

Campbell chose Spinoza Pantheism, what a coincidence!

Read the Book(s)

You don't even believe the book, so your Jesus must be made up.

Phat writes:

Will you stop saying that!

If you want BLM to disappear, stop shooting unarmed minorities under no pretense. If you want Antifa to disappear, stop being a fascist. If you want Ringo, jar and I to stop criticizing you concerning your severely limited understanding of Christianity, read the Bible.

The only part which I have publicly challenged you on is the idea that all Christians are taught to give everything up. It is simply crazy. Besides, why are only we called to do it? Thats not very fair is it.

Obviously, to those who know, such as jar and Ringo, you have not read nor understand Matthew. Quotes like this are a dead giveaway.

Look, Christianity is your self-proclaimed religion, don't you think it is incumbent on any believer to *actually* know what they proclaim to believe in?
