Schizo angel versus filth
Anti-Christ is good? Well, your Yahwe is a sociopath, so yea, you ARE member of evil cult...

Why does this remind me of Grandpa Simpson?
"Aaaaah! That president is the antichrist! Aaaaaah! Gays are the antichrist! Aaaaaah! That ad is the antichrist! Aaaaaah! Matlock was cancelled, ABC is the antichrist!"

I have been keeping tabs of what RR considers is the anti-christ. With this list compared to what is found in my house 91 percent of what I own is the anti-christ.
9% of what I have they have not mentioned, yet.

What's the matter? Afraid of realizing that your god is unnecessary?

Altruism is more difficult to achieve than delusional belief.

Dude, if all it takes to derail and negate your faith is an advertisement on a bus . . .

King Arthur is awesome. In any incarnation. My current favorite is the one from Spamalot.
You, not so good sir, are sullying his name, and he wants it back.

"King" Arthur? Seventh deadly sin (Pride). No Happyland for you!
I will never understand why people believe we need a god to tell us that killing each other (for example) is counter productive in a social setting. People who, given the right tools and education, can put a man on the moon. The ancients were ignorant, not stupid. At least some of them weren't stupid. I won't vouch for "King Arthur's" ancestors.

What, you don't want people to be good?
11/18/2008 2:14:28 PM
So, King, the only reason you are good is bexause Jesus Christ is watching you?
He sees when you masturbate you know.

Saint Malachy, really Maolmhaodhog ua Morgair in the Irish form, was a Catholic Bishop!
Rapture Ready believing a Catholic bishop??? Something wrong here!

No..if they were antichrist they would say something like... "Why believe in Jesus when you can be good for goodness' sake"
But..you are a retard ready member..so I will tell you the truth. Satan put those signs no those busses.

"Those adverts are antichrist indeed..."
I must say, that's the first time I've seen "antichrist" used in such a manner.
11/18/2008 3:24:19 PM
These people are totally lost without enemies to curse to hell. If everyone was good just because it's good to be good, the raptards would no longer have any legitimate function or purpose. [I know, what's legit about them anyway?]
11/18/2008 3:27:37 PM
How is it anti Christ to be good? And did you even read the thread at Myyearbook with that? I seriously doubt it
11/18/2008 3:33:09 PM
So being good to your fellow man for the sake of being good = bad.
Being good to suck up to Jesus = good!
This makes sense to you guys?

It probably follows from the fact that dispensationalists follow Martin Luther's judgement that the Epistle of James was an "epistle of straw". Namely, Luther's unwillingness to believe that works of justice really could matter—too close to the indulgences et al. that he was so opposed to.
It is odd, though. On the side of the holy, good works are not their own purpose; they're only meant to glorify God. But on the OTHER side, Satan wants to shatter righteousness altogether. As though neither side believes that morality is its own purpose...

If the anti-christ thinks we should be good to people for no reason at all except that being good to others is a good thing to do, I'm voting for the anti-christ.
11/18/2008 4:32:07 PM
Oh no! Not being good! That's satan's work!
