Quote# 71993

(Question: If a Christian blows up a building, does that make them a Christian Extremist?)

No, it means he was not a Christian to begin with. According to the Bible no one who hates or murders is a Christian.

The person was probably an atheist pretending to be a Christian. A wolf in sheep's clothing.

1Jn 4:20 If a man say, I love God, and hateth his brother, he is a liar: for he that loveth not his brother whom he hath seen, how can he love God whom he hath not seen?

1Jn 3:15 Whosoever hateth his brother is a murderer: and ye know that no murderer hath eternal life abiding in him.

Zeus Almighty

According to your stupid book all a person has to do is accept Jebus into his heart and he's a christianist.
Deal with it.

No true Scottsman would do that!

If we strictly apply all of the Biblical tests for being a Christian, then I've never met one.

I can beat you, emphasis mine:

Luke 19:24-27 (King James Version)

24: And he said unto them that stood by, Take from him the pound, and give it to him that hath ten pounds.

25: (And they said unto him, Lord, he hath ten pounds.)

26: For I say unto you, That unto every one which hath shall be given; and from him that hath not, even that he hath shall be taken away from him.

27: But those mine enemies, which would not that I should reign over them, bring hither, and slay them before me.

Guess Jesus Christ wasn't a true Christian.

RIIIIGHT, cause a christian can NEVER commit an atrocity, EVER!!!

Christian does a bad thing: Wasn't really a Christian.
Muslim does a bad thing: proof Muslims are evil creatures bent on death and destruction.

Somehow...I sense a slight double standard.

You don't get to redefine words because they inconvenience your cause. A Christian is someone who believes Jesus to be the messiah. That may person may be nice, bad, generous, hypocritical, murderous, etc. but none of those make things them not a Christian.

'Christian' does NOT mean someone who follows your particular interpretation of the Bible (since the Bible is contradictory any interpretation and its opposite is compatible with it, but that's another story). It may even be that your interpretation is the correct one, as all of the thousands of mutually contradictory views of the Bible seem to think they are, but again that does not make a person who doesn't follow your particular interpretation not a Christian.

Yes, but the bible also says NUMEROUS times to kill those who oppose you.

1Jn 4:20 If a man say, I love God, and hateth his brother, he is a liar

“If any man come to me, and hate not his father, and mother, and wife, and children, and brethren, and sisters, yea, and his own life also, he cannot be my disciple“ (Luke 14: 26)

[fundie]See you damn "athiests," TAHT'S the DIFFENCE between us Muslins and Crishitians!

Ain't no RELA chiristian a terruist - tath's only fro them danm Islams!11!! NUN![/fundie]

I don't like the argument of Christian terrorists proving Christianity to be just as violent as Islam, which it demonstrably isn't. Nor do I believe that Muslim terrorists are not true Muslims. Otherwise, "WTF" and all that good stuff.

4/5/2010 3:52:33 PM


solomongrundy beat me to the "cannot be my disciple" verse, so I'll go for the next best thing:

Simpsons 8:8 "I've done everything the Bible says! Even the stuff that contradicts the other stuff!"

4/5/2010 3:56:55 PM


No true scotsman. History fail. Reality fail.

Wait, how many fails do you need to qualify for an Epic fail?

4/5/2010 4:28:12 PM

"I come not to bring peace, but a sword." -Jesus

"Anyone who does not turn from his family to follow me goes to hell." -Jesus

Both verses are from the Book of I'm Too Lazy To Look It Up Right Now

So, by this logic, then, there are no Christians. No one is going to heaven, everyone is going to hell, and y'all can shut the f up about it now?

And solomongrundy posted the second one already.

Jeffrey Dahmer was a Christian. He was also a serial murdering cannibal. There is irony in them thar' hills (Matthew 26:26-28).
You can try to justify it all you want but if you exclude all the murdering and raping scum from your club, you do not have the right to include them into mine or anyone else's.
No one was ever murdered in the name of atheism.
Plenty have been murdered in the name of a religion or a cause, however.

4/5/2010 5:13:12 PM


The person was probably an atheist pretending to be a Christian. A wolf in sheep's clothing.

What the fuck! Why does a murderer automatically have to be an atheist? Your bigotry reeks. Meanwhile in Realityland, we can see that people can indeed be brought to kill others by religion or religious experiences (such as 'visions' of god) and in fact that being more dogmatic means it's easier to control people. Couple that with the easily made distinction between "murdering" and "killing" and the various Bible stories where god commands his followers to kill (rather than murder) others and justification for heinous acts is only as far away as a charismatic leader. Note: unlike you I'm not going around claiming that every killer is a Christian, just pointing out that justifying it isn't impossible or even difficult.

John 4:20. Lol.

The person was probably an atheist pretending to be a Christian. A wolf in sheep's clothing.

I don't know any atheists who would pretend to be a Christian just so they could blow something up. Idiot. Would you ever pretend to be an atheist?

Are you unaware of the fact that you can be a Christian and do bad things?

4/5/2010 7:21:53 PM


But what if a Muslim does NOT blow up a building, does that make him a Muslim extremist?

4/5/2010 7:46:45 PM


Eric Roudolph wasn't atheist. From my experience atheists are less likely to do that.

4/5/2010 8:57:34 PM

pretty puppy

Okay, I have seen some people do some outlandish things to prove a point, but pretending to be of one belief about religion and blowing yourself up to make them look bad takes the cake.

4/5/2010 10:18:05 PM


Does that mean that there are no true christians?

4/5/2010 10:51:49 PM


1Jn 4:20 If a man say, I love God, and hateth his brother, he is a liar: for he that loveth not his brother whom he hath seen, how can he love God whom he hath not seen?

I'm loving this quote, man. First, because it's 4:20, which I find incredibly amusing. Second, because it's spot on. Hate was not a "value" that Jesus supported, so... why all the hate in his name?

4/5/2010 10:56:14 PM


So, anyone who hates his gay brother is not a Christian and won't go to heaven?
Good to know.
