So, according to your line of thinking, to be a 'Christian' you have to give all your money and worldly possessions to the poor, lend money without asking for interest or even the principle back, hate your parents, love your enemies, never have a lewd/sexual thought outside of marriage and never get divorced/re-married.

Is this what you think?



According to my line of thinking? My line of thinking has nothing to do with
whether or not I can be a Christian. Even if your prescribed list is an accurate
account of my thinking. And the only thing I have to do, is believe in and
try to follow Christ. See the problem is yours, because as an atheist W/E,
you just resign yourself from ever putting what someone else thinks before
what you think. So the most important thing in the world to you, is what
you think. But I have way more faith in what Christ thinks than what
I think. Also the line of questioning isn't inquisitive at all. But it is
a riot when people try to pass it off that way. When it's more reminiscent
of some spoiled child mocking the other kids because he can't get his way
like he does at home. Atheists are obviously worried what Christians think
but truly what you think? I couldn't give a crap about.

Don't ya just hate it when I refuse to lay down and be walked on, all Christian
like, as some would say?

Why would you call yourself any thing? This is the issue!
If you call yourself some thing then you have missed the point - you are not a name - you are not a thing.
No matter what you frame yourself as, you are bound. You are bound to be in conflict because no one can be some thing.

You wrote QUOTE "Why would you call yourself any thing? This is the issue! If you call yourself some thing then you have missed the point - you are not a name - you are not a thing.

I only raised this question because so many persons who style themselves 'Christians' are divorced and remarried and/or have (shall we say) loose morals - acting as if nobody is watching the store, as it were. Perhaps they feel they will be forgiven so they can act any way they want to during their time on this planet....it's the hypocrisy I'm pointing out, is all...
