There is that unconditional love again..

If IAMIAM thinks it is ok to have sex with children (because you are not hurting them)..which he has implied in other posts..


I implied we are ALL children. What is the age at which a child is no longer a child?

An age is nothing more than counting revolutions around the sun.

No one should harm anyone. If one should harm anyone, then the root cause must be sought with love and understanding that it can be eradicated permanently. We need mediators not legislators.

as well as to have sex with prostitutes.. which he has said in other posts....and going so far as to say that Jesus could have had sex with Mary Magdalene and other women..


One woman marries a man who can provide for her for life and sleeps with him.

One woman sleeps with a man so she can provide for herself.

Which is the prostitute?

Unconditional love IS what Christ taught.

What was HIS two commandments?

If you do not like where others are being lead, raise your voice and call. See who comes to follow YOU.

Do you really think any one man can lead anyone from God? Do you think you can snatch one child from his hand? God decides who goes where and how they get there.

Go where you are told to go, and stand out of the way of others in their travels.

With Love,

Your Brother

So do you believe now there are indeed good and evil actions and there is accountability for such with the choices we make?


There are only actions. If you do not like the action, look within it for the cause, and change it if you can or accept it if you cannot.

Do you believe God is omnipotent?

If so, then he is certainly powerful enough to administer justice.

I see ..while you expect unconditional love.. you are more than happy to give out your smart answers.. make others feel ridiculed.. and who knows what else you do ..that we don't know about.. or most of us anyhow.

I find it amazing that the people who slam others for not treating them well.. can be the same ones who will hack into computers..cause havoc in peoples lives.. for shyts and giggles..and just plain revenge..just because someone didn't agree with what they said.

But.. ohh.. yes..they want unconditional love..yet are so unwilling to give it.



Gabby, you are being told to unconditionally love everyone in the world. If you love only those who love you are no better than the robber even they do that. You have been instructed to love your friends and enemies. You are told to forgive everyone who seeks forgiveness, and it's best for you to forgive even those who do not seek your forgiveness.

Gabby, you know that Christ taught a loving message but you accept a message that causes separation, judgment, and hate. Gabby people hate you for what you say, when they hate you they hate Christ. Do you think that this is what Christ wants? Stop thinking that you or anyone has some sort of excusive right to the bible.

The bible was written for all who seek answers. It was written so that all who live knowing that love is the way to know that Christ lives in them. You think that the bible says you must believe in Christ to prove that you should be saved.

What the bible really says that everyone who lives by the law of love prove that Christ lives in them. Everyone would accept this message if all Christians understood this. You see there is nothing to convert to. I am not telling them they need to do anything. I am telling them that they prove that Christ is in them because they are searching for love.

This is what the bible says. Do you see this is why Paul asks, why do you call yourself a follower of me or Titus or any man. When clearly all who live by the law of love prove that Christ lives in them. Once someone accepts that we are all connected by love, and that the source of love is Christ, then they should read the word for themselves. Allowing the very sprit of God to teach them.

Don’t you see what I am saying, causes no separation or judgment. What I say completely agrees with Christ. What you say, since it leads to hate, clearly contradicts Christ.

Are you daft? You honestly think women marry men so than can be "provided" for?

To call women prostitutes who marry is totally unloving..unkind..as well as untrue..

Thank you for clearly showing us what you are.. and the path you really walk.

No thanks.. I don't want to sit in the world of someone who calls women who have married.. merely prostitutes . There are way to many hard working mothers and wives out there.. who actually make more than their spouse.. and provide for their family..

And God bless them for providing for their family.. while some men just walk away from their children.. in pretense of going out to the world to live a life that God commanded of them.

What are you supposed to do when people ridicule and hate you?

Didn't Christ say to love them?

Do you know why?

All the immorality that you see in this world will disappear over night if you would just stop judging through your own limited world view and found a way to open your heart to the fact that these are PEOPLE. People with lives you have not lived and had experiences you have not even imagined. They are what they are BECAUSE of their life.

You cannot Judge them!

Love heals all and causes the individual to want to change to their very best form. It comes from within and you cannot force it on anyone.

Love one another, and let the light within you shine. For that light will drive away ALL darkness where ever you go.

With Love,

Your Brother

John the baptist taught people to repent of their sins..and come to God..he wanted separation from sin..and for the people to separate themselves from sin such as sexual immorality.. greed..etc.

Now you are being unkind as well as assuming.. if you can say to me "stop acting like I have some exclusive rights to the bible"..because it you who perceives it....that is not reality.

You can see them which ever way you want.. its your delusional world.. but don't you dare say you speak for Christ... or walk in His ways.

...and don't ever try and teach me your delusional hokey..
yes.. madonna the singer is so blessed and pure


You have no idea at how she offends Jesus especially by using the beloved name of His dear mother purest of all humans in mind and body.

I will pray for you IAMIAM.. because quite frankly ..my gut still tells me.. that someone is having a good laugh using that photo.. and playing a little role... time will reveal all..

But it won't take time to clearly tell me that you do NOT have the light of the Holy Spirit.

Well I certainly will not stoop to your level of personal insults and innuendo. I have to deal with your kind a lot in here.



Can you not read in the new testament that Jesus says anyone who is not for Him is against Him?


Do you follow the teachings, or worship the Godman?




So..I promise I will NEVER again preach Jesus to you... but don't you EVER try and throw your totally nonsense interpretations of the bible at me.. or any other Christian.. because I WILL defend God's word against lies.


Friend, what I posted is from your Bible, and if you cannot look it up and read it, I did post where in the KJV it can be found, then there is something wrong with you. I do not make "interpretations," I look at what it says. How do you read it? Does Jesus read it to you, and tell you what it means, or is it a preacher that does this?

I find it odd that the people who are preaching unconditional love.. are the ones who seem to bash me at every turn they have.. oh well.. Hypocrites in all beliefs.

Also in his original Op vogon made no mention of his mother.. just that he thought he'd give God another try.

So....you don't actually read people's responses to threads. He mentioned it further on....but you, perhaps, were already suffering the blowing of the same fuse that seems to plague you.

And I'm not "preaching" anything, thank you very much. I am sending it, and saying it here on a public forum.

And you talk about bashing!

But you see you that, I am not assuming anything. You say it in your own words. You tell people that the church has the only right to translation and then you say that your church has the right interpretation. These are your very own words. By your own words you have claimed an exclusive right. You think that anyone who does not follow your church, and does not accept Christ the way you have is in danger of going to hell.

So not only do you claim an exclusive right, with an exclusive interpretation, you actually condemn those who don't believe what you do. No one wants to read a book that says believe me or you go to hell. Thank God this is not what the bible says.

What the bible does say Gabby is that all who desire to follow love prove that Christ is already living in them. It is once they accept what the bible says is true that they can understand that they are the temple. Once one realizes that they are the temple than they should feel compelled to shed their sinful nature and follow Christ.

The whole point of the message is for people who have already heard it and believed to not give up on those who have not yet believed. If I go to a home and I talk with them and I find that I have met a loving family I know Christ lives in them. If they reject my message today I should leave them in hugs and prayer. Then I will pray to God that the next time I come I am more successful because I know that Christ lives in them.

Do you know how many people believe that everyone should live the way Christ did? Even Autowrench thinks that it would be good if everyone demonstrated love like Christ. If someone believes in the words of Christ than they have rejected Christianity not Christ. It is the churches fault for teaching a doctrine of judgment that leads to hate and separation. The true message in the bible is quite simple if you follow the law of love you prove you have Christ in you. Once you accept this you should read the book that teaches you about him.

Gabby it would be impossible for someone to love if Christ was not in them and they were not in Christ. God is the source of all love and Christ living in us is the source of love within us.

For Autowrench, I apologize if my calling you out offended you. The language I used was meant for Gabby. I believe if you live by the law of love that you too have Christ in you. You simply have listened to the church institutions damaging interpretation of the scripture. And thus rejected the message. Someday I hope the door to the message is reopened but honestly I do understand if that door remains shut. In that case follow Christ by simply living by the law of love that is in you.

It sounds unloving unless you KNOW what Jesus was teaching.

He taught the Kingdom of Heaven, which is ruled by God.

Look what a mess we have created trusting rulership to Man. How free do you feel, how secure, how happy? Man cannot rule Man.

There is a law which Christ brought that unites all Mankind. That is to love one another.

He taught it, he exemplifies it with his life, and he showed the power of it unto death.

If you stand against Christ, you stand against love, for that is ALL he taught, exemplified, and demonstrated.

"Christian" does not make one a follower of Christ. Walking in HIS shoes does.

But it is not about making cookie cutter Christ's all over the world.

Be who YOU are, and just let the love inside you take over your life.

Live in love my friend.

It is power.

It is God working through you.

Anything less is Man trying to save his skin.

With Love,

Your Brother

You have just contradicted yourself friend, as you threw this statement at me just before......



Do as he commanded or stop claiming him as your lord. That only makes you a liar.





What grieves me my friend is that I know you can do as Christ did. How do I know?

Because I am doing it.
How is it then that in another thread you encouraged someone to be a buddhist ? Jesus Never commanded anyone to follow Buddha. Jesus says of Himself that He is the door. No one comes to the Father but by Him. Jesus says that He alone is the way, the truth and the life.
You are not doing what Jesus did.




Idolatry. This is the sin Jesus was put to death for. This is why God would not intervene. Jesus was judged by man to be so good, that he must be God.
Firstly - the Christian Bible clearly and emphatically says that Jesus NEVER committed any sin. You are wrong on that point.
Secondly - the Jews put Jesus to death because He claimed that HE was GOD. (blasphemy) You are wrong again.
Thirdly - Jesus wasn't judged by man to be so good - the jews and the romans HATED Jesus. You are again incorrect.

Your doctrine is not aligned with the Christian Bible friend - no matter how much you say it is.




I say otherwise.
You have elevated yourself above Christ. You are idolising yourself - that's the crime of accuser. You are deceived and are deceiving others.




The work Christ did on the cross was fulfillment of prophecy. It was all preordained. EVERYTHING is fixed. Christ fulfilled the brutal nailing to the cross. The resurrection is through his followers, those who do what he commanded.
The work that Jesus did on the cross did fulfill prophecy, but it was to provide atonement for the sin of ALL mankind. "By His stripes we are healed." By the shedding of His blood and the breaking of His body and His crucifixion, it has been made possible for us to be forgiven and reunited intimately with our creator.




What name am I working under here?
Who do you claim to be ?

Repeat after me...

I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the father but by me.

The goal of a master is for the disciples to become as the master, and then do things greater, for the flesh perishes, but the spirit is eternal.

vogon42, your question is how do you have a loving relationship with your mother who believes and teaches something that you know in your heart can not be true. The first thing you need is the truth. The truth is simple Christ is in you. I know this because you love your mother enough to ask this question. You do not have to believe what the church teaches to follow Christ. It would be good for you to read at least the New Testament and allow the Holy Spirit to interpret the word, so that you may better understand both the truth and the church.

I am going to show you something that the church doesn’t understand. Read the verses below.


1 John 4:20 If anyone says, “I love God,” and hates his brother, he is a liar; for he who does not love his brother whom he has seen cannot love God whom he has not seen

John 13:34-35 A new commandment I give to you, that you love one another: just as I have loved you, you also are to love one another. By this all people will know that you are my disciples, if you have love for one another.”

Matthew 10:34 “Do not think that I have come to bring peace to the earth. I have not come to bring peace, but a sword.

Luke 14:26 "If anyone comes to me and does not hate his father and mother, his wife and children, his brothers and sisters--yes, even his own life--he cannot be my disciple.


Now you see the verses above teach a contradiction so here is the way the church interprets the contradiction. Love everyone but if they don’t accept Christ than they won’t be going to heaven and God hates those who won’t accept this message of truth.

Now for the correct interpretation. Love is the only command. So why does Jesus tell you to hate? This is because if you understand the message of Christ that I am sharing with you than you see why you hate your mom’s interpretation. So it is possible for you to unconditionally love your mother even though you disagree to the point of hating what she says.

I don’t like the term love the sinner hate the sin and here is why. You must understand your mom has been deceived. The bible predicts that all will be deceived by fine sounding arguments. She has been deceived by the church just like most other Christians. Because she has believed a deception this does not make her a willful sinner.



1 Corinthians 13:4-7 Love is patient and kind; love does not envy or boast; it is not arrogant or rude. It does not insist on its own way; it is not irritable or resentful; it does not rejoice at wrongdoing, but rejoices with the truth. Love bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things.


Remember the verse above when dealing with your mother. Also I urge you to read the bible and listen to your heart. Somehow I believe that when I say Christ lives in you, and you prove that by the love you show for your mother, you not only want to believe but you actually start to believe.

If you want to help your mother, read the bible and learn for yourself. Reject the doctrine of judgment, hate, and separation and listen to the doctrine of love, patience, and fellowship. In this way you may be able to correct her through your thorough understanding of scripture.
