27jd, You are a quite a little devil. You seem to enjoy finding buttons to push and annoying me.
This is the only thing ill agree with you on, and only because it amuses me.
However, ill have to come to 27jd'd defense on this issue...(if you can believe that 27jd...
It is not so much that good and evil are equals...but how do you judge one without knowing the other?
It is a scale of measurment...at what point do you slip from good to evil?
Is some evil more evil than others?
burgulary vs robbery...
assault vs murder...
Is some good more than other good?
giving $$$ to charity vs actually volunteering time to the charity?
saving a life by calling 911 in time or personally doing mouth to mouth to save the same person?
Who gets to decide where the good/evil line is?
(id say the majority in a democratic society, and i know 27jd doesnt like that answer because indeed it leaves the door open to allow that society to
Evil does not proceed from good. Good is by definition whole, complete, and self-sufficient. Evil is the corruption of good, and it cannot create its
own increase, but requires the fruit of the good to continue to exist.
Good and evil are 2 sides of the same coin...they are NOT seperate...obviously evil can create itself as lucifer willfully chose to go against
god...he got himself kicked out of heaven by telling god...no im not going to cow tow to man, im a higher being than man is...he was jealous of
mankind and the place god put us over the angels...Lucifer and his followers then waged war vs god and was expelled from heaven to hell....
this all took place in heaven....so evil in essence came out off heaven....
if lucifer is the devil, then who tempted him to defy god in the first place?
It was because god does not create puppets, he creates free spirited beings...lucifers free will got him into serious trouble.
god often talks about "free will" you must choose to follow jesus (in this case) as your savior, and ask forgivness. this is your choice.
I am not taking a stand that i enjoy evil or support it over good.
to say god is great and everything without acknowleging that evil is also out there is blind faith.
Many of you modern Americans have taken this perversion of eastern religion and taken it to mean that you can live in any manner you desire, because
good and evil don't matter, and no one can judge you. This is the fire of fools.
Now 27jd knows that i dont agree with an anything goes, do whatever as long as it doesnt hurt anyone else mentality....Im with you there
indeed by christian ideology...noone here CAN judge you, as they are as flawed as you...even if they live an exemplarary christian life...
we are all born as sinners and die the same way...
The fact is, that if you truely repent and ask jesus for forgivness, then even as you hang on the cross for murder...close to death, if you ask him
honestly...YOU WILL BE FORGIVEN!
Now this is not a license to go out on an "evil" rampage.
But it does show that god understands that we cant help but sin.
So keep your holier than thou attitude to yourself sinner. You are no better than anyone else here.
Even if you do repent and will be saved...cursing and condemming,and not showing infinate love, compassion, and forgiveness to those that
are"misguided" or not saved isnt living as a christian, its living as a sinner.
Ark questions 27jd,
You seem to comment on almost every post that you are a dope smoking fornicator. Is this a noble thing to become, little brother? Well I spoke when I
called you a shaitan.
Yeah dope smoking and yeah fornication...(man i supported 27jd twice in one post...where is the real CazMedia?...:lol
Lets look at these 2 vices ark...
dope smoking, ohh you mean the natural plant that god made? didnt god tell man that all the plants and animals were his to use/manage?
god made weed, man made coc aine....ill chose gods natural way any day...
heck, didnt jesus himself turn water into wine for a wedding party?
what does this imply about the vice of drinking? (moderation is the key)
fornication, well now i understand the ramifications of wild random and frequent fornication,....there is a down side
god put into man the drive, the urge to "go forth and multiply"
well im dam sure gonna try to follow gods command there...
now if we cant control ourselves, thats our fault, but god created this feeling in us....he knew what he was doing i think. again, moderation is the
What if he fornicated with his wife every day in every mutually pleasurable way? would that be a sin? or is it just when its out of wedlock, or
forced, or what? at some point fornication is good, at some point its evil...but where is the line and who decided it?
You never post any wisdom here 27jd, you merely pick at the fruits others offer. Away, black crow, you are a pest and a vermin-snatcher.
Becareful, this is definatly jdgmental, and is borderline outright a personal attack, which would violate this boards policies....
no you didnt actually directly say27jd wes a pesty, vermin snatching bird, but it was certantly implied.
Try less vehemance in your debates, you might actually find another person to try and show you pitty, compassion and attempt to understand you.
(Ohh the flack ill get for even trying to accomodate you)
