Imagine if all this hysteria and hate was tossed at Muslims in Europe. The secularists here would be in a total snit at the bigotry if this was directed at Muslims. How ignorant can you all be when you act like kooks towards Christians; acting like they have some kind of disease?. "The Christians are coming, the Christians are coming! Hide yer kids!" I did not know they had red necks in Europe, too!
Djin is a rabid Anti-Religion fanatic...
If Djin was actually interested in polite, reasoned debate, it would be fruitful to post with him.
Alas, he is not. One cannot debate with a person who has absolutely no interest or respect at all in even entertaining the thoughts and ideas of another person.
I must ask why even post on a forum, if one feels he is so superior in his beliefs that anyone contrary to those beliefs is not even afforded the courtesy of respect in listening, consideration, and answering?
First, I want you to know that I believe in Jesus Christ as my Lord and Savior.
Now, I think that pushing any thought, theory or prejudice upon anyone is wrong.
I am always trying to talk to people about Jesus and what his sacrifice means to all of us.
I have no idea how old your children are, but one day they will make up their own minds; just like you did.
I can also tell you that there is absolutely nothing to loose if you believe in Jesus, confess that Jesus is your sole God,
repent of your sins and try to live as a better person.
As a matter of fact, all your original laws are rooted in the Ten Commandments
This is not a way for me to make you mad. I am just trying to put some logical thoughts for you to ponder.

I never get tired of hearing the intolerant ravings of "tolerant rational atheist". Come on guys is Christianity that scary?
Luke 12:47 And that servant, which knew his lord's will, and prepared not himself, neither did according to his will, shall be beaten with many stripes.
(NRSV) First Timothy 6:1-6 Let all who are under the yoke of slavery regard their masters as worthy of all honor, so that the name of God and the teaching may not be blasphemed. Those who have believing masters must not be disrespectful to them on the ground that they are members of the church; rather they must serve them all the more, since those who benefit by their service are believers and beloved.
(NRSV) First Corinthians 7:20-21 Let each of you remain in the condition in which you were called. Were you a slave when called? Do not be concerned about it.
Exodus 21:20-21 When a slave owner strikes a male or female slave with a rod and the slave dies immediately, the owner shall be punished. But if the slave survives a day or two, there is no punishment; for the slave is the owner’s property
Ephesians 6:5 Slaves, obey your earthly masters with fear and trembling, in singleness of heart, as you obey Christ; not only while being watched, and in order to please them, but as slaves of Christ, doing the will of God from the heart. Render service with enthusiasm, as to the Lord and not to men and women, knowing that whatever good we do, we will receive the same again from the Lord, whether we are slaves or free.
(NRSV) Colossians 3:22 Slaves, obey your earthly masters in everything, not only while being watched and in order to please them, but wholeheartedly, fearing the Lord.
(NRSV) Titus 2:9-10 Tell slaves to be submissive to their masters and to give satisfaction in every respect; they are not to talk back, not to pilfer, but to show complete and perfect fidelity, so that in everything they may be an ornament to the doctrine of God our savior.
(NRSV) First Peter 2:18-19 Slaves, accept the authority of your masters with all deference, not only those who are kind and gentle but also those who are harsh. For it is a credit to you if, being aware of God, you endure pain while suffering unjustly.

you mine as well be posting a one-liner... come on man stop trolling!
if you have an opinion please post it, instead of just sarcastic or otherwise remarks on quotations.
edit on 11/29/2010 by Cosmic.Artifact because: (no reason given)
everything you do and everything you say, in fact the fabric of the very nature of your being that makes you what you are and the things you have learned is part of Christian history

It's not a simple case of just having an opinion they're intent on forcing their beliefs upon me.
How many of these types of people in these positions do you think, will it take before bronze age blasphemy laws are re introduced or that homosexuals are once again treated as the dysfunctional wicked of society ?
Please bear in mind that these people hand out books to children that give clear instructions on how to beat your slave and that disobedient children should be stoned to death !!!
Live in a society operating with christian values and morals ?
Over my cold dead body
Let me explain something to you. A person would REALLY have to hate someone's guts to believe eternal life was possible for them but refused to share that with them.
