Quantcast

For those who have been insulted or condemned by "Christians..."

...Know that the Bible itself does not advocate vicious persecution.
Luke 18: 10-14
10 “Two men went up to the temple to pray, one a Pharisee and the other a tax collector.
11 The Pharisee stood and prayed thus with himself, ‘God, I thank You that I am not like other men—extortioners, unjust, adulterers, or even as this tax collector.
12 I fast twice a week; I give tithes of all that I possess.’
13 And the tax collector, standing afar off, would not so much as raise his eyes to heaven, but beat his breast, saying, ‘God, be merciful to me a sinner!’
14 I tell you, this man went down to his house justified rather than the other; for everyone who exalts himself will be humbled, and he who humbles himself will be exalted.”
You!

    I think you need to consider that even without the bible, the harassment, insults and condemnations on both sides should not happen. If it requires a book rather than ones own personal morality and ethical understanding then something is clearly wrong. many people understand what is socially acceptable and are perfectly fine with it, others will act as they do on sodahead (on every side of the argument). It is just best to ignore those who act in such a way and consider them nothing but trolls.

    Many religions are about the condemnation of others (Christians, Muslims), a main reason why there is so much violence in the world, thank you jebus and allah.

    You must not have read the verse if you still think Chrsitianity is about the condemnation of others

    You must have missed the part where god and jebus banish you to burn in the firey pits of hell for all eternity for not believing, sounds like condemnation to me.....

    That's not what Christianity is ABOUT. And people send themselves to Hell by following Satan; God doesn't send people to Hell

    No He doesn't. They did the action and brought the consequences upon themself. Whether they "believe" not believing in Him is wrong or not doesn't change that it is, and doesn't change what the results will be

    If a police were to give you a ticket for speeding, whose fault is that? Are you going to blame him because he wrote you the ticket or yourself because you chose to break the law?

    If you want to argue that point you must first prove Christianity to be true.......good luck with that.

    Right. God has no power to send people to hell. And we send ourselves by refusing to believe in a creator for whom there is no proof?
  • Silvers... Courtne... 2012/07/27 00:01:09

    You send yourself there by not obeying you one who created you. Not believing He created you doesn't change what the results will be, and ignorance of the law is no excuse

    Christians have no right to condemn others. Justice is in God's hands, not our own.

    People can choose who they want their God to be. Or choose to have no God at all. My God is just, but some may not have a very just God...

    I don't understand how much of an understanding you can get out of the Bible when 3/4 of the verses are being ignored.

    let me see... how does a 5 year Theology Degree [without divinity] sound to you?

    i have a greater understanding than you could ever imagine...

    there is no god, that was a man made control medium as is the biblical texts you refer to...

    So he studied theology taught by other atheists. Lovely.

    Don't let him get to you. His link? Luke 18:10-14 read just as you posted. I fail to see just what his point was.

    Religion is definitely man made, yes, but if this world is possible you can't discredit the existence of a "higher power", especially when we have not unlocked all the mysteries of the universe. America and England are the same ruled by the same, to hate America is to hate your own country. I'm surprised you do not see the plight both our countries face with your theology degree or even being so judgmental about a whole county.

    Most of the insults on SH are from Probressive Democrats, Devil Worshippers, Agnostics, Malcontents, Atheists and other uneducated ignorant fools that do not know what they are !

    I see those too, so here is Matthew 5:10:
    Blessed are those who are persecuted for righteousness’ sake,
    For theirs is the kingdom of heaven.

    At least be comforted knowing that you're in a better state than they are.

    I appreciate the irony in that NPC identifies people who insult others as 'ignorant fools'.

    Too much stupid...can't even respond. The real uneducated ones are those who accept what their parents taught them (Jesus, Santa Claus) with NO proof.
