What Christians are best at
It's taken me long enough but I finally figured it out. Whenever Jar talks about Christianity he's using Poe's Law, but without the smilies. That's what throws eveyone off. Becauae really, the dude hasn't the slightest clue at all what the Bible teaches says or means let alone anything concerning Christianity whatsoever.

THAT much is clear.

Seems like the only thing Christians truly excel at is identifying people they think are the "wrong kind of Christians".

Basically, anyone who disagrees with them on any aspect of the Bible "doesn't know what they are talking about" because (implied statement) "I have a direct line to God and everyone else is just faking it".

Of course, since you all seem to be making the exact same claim and accusing each other of not understanding the true meaning of the word, it leaves the rest of us to assume you are all right in that you are all wrong.

It's the CCOI at it's very best. Actively proving that even other Christians think Christians are woefully ignorant.

Re: What Christians are best at
I'm reminded of a quote:
'Chuck77' writes:

Remember now Nuggin, argue the postion and not the person. When you argue the person like you are, it makes it look like you are clueless to the topic and instead are resorting to a low level of debating tactics. Sad bro, sad.

Let's see how that relates to this recent post.

'Chuck77' writes:

You really are ignorant


'Chuck77' writes:

Nuggin, stop commenting man, your showing your ignorance.

Seems like you are, what was it you said? Oh right, "clueless on the topic" and "sad".

Now, let's discuss this quote a in a little more detail:

'Chuck77' writes:

your showing your ignorance.

See, in my book, 'irony' would be insulting someone for 'ignorance' while misusing "your/you're" thus demonstrating your (not "you're) ignorance.

Does that seem ironic to you? (Notice, I said "to you" not "too you" or "two you" or "to ewe").

Now that that's cleared up, let's discuss _your_ claim.

Christians don't go around saying we are aloud to judge God like Jar did.

By the way, it's "allowed" meaning "permitted to", not "aloud" meaning "in a voice other people can hear" (note that's "hear" not "here").

My original point was that Christians seem particularly fond of declaring that other people "aren't Christian" because they don't do what person A wants them to do.

You know how you can tell that that was my original point? Because I said it in the post you quote-mined.

Here (not "hear), I'll repost it for you.

Now, your (not "you're") response to my pointing out that Christians truly excel at identifying people they think are the "wrong kind of Christians" was to point out that Jar is the wrong kind of Christian.

Frankly, Chucky, I don't think you grasp the concept of debate very well. You see, when I make a point, it's in your (not "you're) best interest to avoid proving my point with your (again, not "you're") response.

In summary, I'll leave you with this gem:

'Chucky77' writes:

I suggest you (not "ewe) take your (not "you're" or even "yore") advice.

Re: The Responsibility to Question
1)Does the Bible suggest that God is unreasonable, illogical, or unrealistic?

IMO, the Bible does an excellent Job (haha) of making it EXTREMELY clear that God is unreasonable, illogical and unrealistic most, if not all, of the time.

Exodus is a terrific example.
Job is a terrific example.
Genesis is a terrific example.

The God character in these stories is less reasonable than more Greek deities, and that is saying something.
