eou, you quoted exo and blamed it on mantis....
Also, this thread is ridiculous, it is poison, it is.... antiTF
stop saying these people are going to suffer, you know nothing of what will happen if this stuff is true, who are you to cast judgement on these people... Or maybe you who, are such a bible freak should know,
For in the same way you judge others, you will be judged, and with the measure you use, it will be measured to you.
And there we go.
Are you saying that all other religions and beliefs are wrong? I know I'm not the only athiest on here- what makes YOU right? Who are you to tell me that I'm wrong and I'm going to burn? And going along with your little story's quote, how do you even know it's soon?
Liz, as an Atheist, you personally believe other religions are wrong. I agree with you standing up for equality of beliefs, but this is not the correct situation to try and assert that ideal. You have to keep in mind the audience you want to reach, and the amount of education/open-mindedness of said audience.
A pastor friend of mine once told me something to the effect of, "Even if you believe the the word of the Bible is pure, how can you be certain that your interpretation is good?" Shakespeare made a similarly good point in The Merchant of Venice; "(Even) [t]he devil can cite scripture for his purpose."
o//~ Livin' like a bug ain't easy / My old clothes don't seem to fit me /
I got little tiny bug feet / I don't really know what bugs eat /
Don't want no one steppin' on me / Now I'm sympathizin' with fleas /
Livin' like a bug ain't easy / Livin' like a bug ain't easy... o//~
Time to close this yet?
Alright, I'm putting this thread in Time-Out for the evening. Let's all cool off a little.
