Quote# 64935

Rox, the Bible is either what it says it is and is 100 percent correct, 100 percent of the time or it is 100 percent wrong. it is not a buffet that you come and pick and choose what you agree with and not. either Jesus Christ is what he claimed or he was a wack job and should be disdained. i Know the power of God in my life and i know that rest that comes from having my sins completely erased. this life that i have found is so consuming that i have lost my self in it and i love every minute of it. when you come to Jesus and really know him your life will change forever and you will not want to go back. if you do not know him, he is the answer to every question bar-none. you have to know Jesus to understand why we believe in blind faith. it is a peace that passes all understanding. as a believer we can go before the throne through Jesus our mediator straight to the Father himself and talk directly to him. what a mind blower to talk to God himself and then see him answer your prayers. forget the huminist and turn to Jesus before it is to late. maranatha!

Started out so well, and then...

"you have to know Jesus to understand why we believe in blind faith."

Which came first, the chicken or the egg?

Actually, for RR, it's pretty progressive - in a relative sort of way.

You fail at percentages.

Ah, the old 'Jesus: Liar, Lord or Lunatic' argument.

I think 'Legend' is a lot more likely.

"the Bible is either what it says it is and is 100 percent correct, 100 percent of the time or it is 100 percent wrong."

I vote for 100% wrong then.

And seriously, learn to capitalize. It's funny how fundies like this capitalize the words Jesus, God, bible, father & such, but nothing else.

Um...uh...yeah. Well, at least we can say this guy is really 100% sure of himself that he has blind faith. I wonder if you could convince him to jump off a suspension bridge by telling him Jesus will save him if he does.

"Rox, the Bible is either what it says it is and is 100 percent correct, 100 percent of the time or it is 100 percent wrong. it is not a buffet that you come and pick and choose what you agree with and not."

What is with you people and your black and white binary thinking? You're telling me that if everything in your Bible was absolutely, unarguably true except for the fact that it says, for instance, insects have four legs then that means everything in there would then be totally incorrect?

How fucking stupid are you?

"either Jesus Christ is what he claimed or he was a wack job and should be disdained."

False dilemma. He could have been mistaken. He could have been delusional. He could have outright lied. He may not have existed at all. He may be an amalgam of numerous people who existed at the time. He may be an amalgam of numerous mythical figures.

See? Lots of other options. Open your fucking mind just a crack and you might not seem so ignorant.

"i Know the power of God in my life and i know that rest that comes from having my sins completely erased."

Fine. Now convince the rest of us. See, that's where the problem lies. There are plenty of people in psych wards all around the globe who know their delusions are true too, but we sane people don't believe them for the same reason I don't believe you: no evidence.

"this life that i have found is so consuming that i have lost my self in it and i love every minute of it."

Good for you. I suppose.

"when you come to Jesus and really know him your life will change forever and you will not want to go back."

Explain converts from your religion to another or deconversion from your religion to none at all. And don't pull that, "They weren't True Christians" bullshit either.

"if you do not know him, he is the answer to every question bar-none."

Really? Why hasn't he explained a unified field theory to at least one of the Christian physicists of the world? I'm sure at least one of them is devout enough to have such knowledge imparted to them.

"you have to know Jesus to understand why we believe in blind faith."

So, I'm supposed to believe something for no particular reason other than someone told me to but I can't understand why I'd do that until I actually do so.

Uh huh.

I believe that would fall into the category of a Catch 22.

"as a believer we can go before the throne through Jesus our mediator straight to the Father himself and talk directly to him."

If you're going through someone else you're not going directly to him, now are you?

Were you this bad off before religion or is religion what rotted your brain?

"what a mind blower to talk to God himself and then see him answer your prayers."

Let me know when he gets around to sending some manna from heaven for all the starving kids in Africa.

"forget the huminist and turn to Jesus before it is to late."

Jesus appears to do absolutely nothing but demand worship (at least the version you guys have conjured up for yourselves). Humanists, on the other hand, actually help their fellow human beings.

I'm not sure I'd go with it being 100% wrong. I mean, there was a country called Egypt. And Rome had an empire.

So, that's two out of... ten million.

Not such a good track record.

he is the answer to every question bar-none. you have to know Jesus to understand why we believe in blind faith.

Magic words. Abracadabra will do as well

Of an ancient man the tale is told
That he lived to be ten centuries old,
In a cave on a mountain side.
(True, he finally died).
The fame of his wisdom filled the land,
For his head was bald, and you'll understand
His beard was long and white
And his eyes uncommonly bright.

Philosophers gathered from far and near
To sit at his feet and hear and hear,
Though he never was heard
To utter a word
But Abracadabra, abracadab,
Abracada, abracad,
Abraca, abrac, abra, ab!"

'Twas all he had,
'Twas all that they wanted to hear, and each
Made copious notes of the mystical speech.

Rox, the Bible is either what it says it is and is 100 percent correct, 100 percent of the time or it is 100 percent wrong. it is not a buffet that you come and pick and choose what you agree with and not.

David B.:

Numbers 23:22 says nothing about unicorns in my bible. It says "Wild Ox". Is that a King James thing?

You should have stopped there.

Let's stick with this line of thought, I think you're on to something here....

Oh dear, we could go into that crowd and have so very much fun with chickens and eggs....


No chickens here...

As far as I am aware, Jesus was neither a whackjob, or existent. The whackjobs followed.

I dare say, that when the mythology that comprised Jesus was compiled, it was done so to shut up whack-jobs like you.

Apparently in rapture-me's denomination you go to hell for beginning sentences with upper-case letters.

There you have it, folks. I'm not sure what "it" is, though.

For someone who was so sure that the end of the world was coming that his followers should bear no mind for the morrow it seems to have all happened very many yesterdays ago. So I'm going to go for the nut job answer.

So, does _War_and_Peace_ prove that Napoleon never existed?

"Numbers 23:22 says nothing about unicorns in my bible. It says "Wild Ox". Is that a King James thing?"
I think so.

similarly, the word translated as "dragons" can mean a number of things. One of them, iirc, is "jackal", and most of the dragon references make more sense in that light...

The 'intellects' that composed the canonical literature could be classified as either angry village idiots or pious village idiots.

Look no farther than the nearest seminary for your village idiot.
