The "Christian Left" is like Bigfoot or the Loch Ness Monster: People want it to exist so badly that they keep telling themselves over and over that it's real.Crazy leftists. They're always good for a laugh.
So there is the other member of the Christian left. I wondered if I was all alone in this world.
OK.....I'll state the obvious. "Christian left" is an oxymoron. You can't be what we consider left and be a christian.
Jesus was about as far left as you can get.
Yes, but he wasn't a Christian. He was Jewish.
If you are right (christian) how in the world can you be left?
Christians do not suck the brains out of unborn babies. Christian abide by all the laws of God. They do not isolate 10 verses in the Law and ignore the surrounding scriptures.
9:33....................You should be ashamed calling jesus a baby killing, hermersexial,appeaser. Jesus was a friend of mine. I knew jesus back before he mowed my lawn, and you,sir, are no jesus.There is no hope for humanity.
What is good for a laugh is the one's that really think they have a clue. Or know what Jesus Would Do. It is the parts that are used to make a point, but other parts that don't fit into the plan are BS and ignored because it does not count. But maybe it does. If one judges others that believe in liberty and freedom and Christ and think a Lefty is not in good standing with the Lord, may have to do a little 'plaining at the Heavenly Gates. I say "may" cause I don't know. Not like the Rightous Right Publomatics that have all the answers and a direct text message service to God.
10:43 - good one. Send this to the next meeting of the Wise County Republican Party. It is absolutely FULL of folks your last sentence describes.The biggest SIN they committed was electing a liar as President.
I have always believed that a Christian doesn't have to beat the drum, beat the bible or have tacky bumper stickers on their car....they rather show their faith through kindnesses and deeds. Talk is cheap. Live by example and walk the talk. Similiarly, people who really have money don't brag about it.
Hey, isn't the new Batman a chrisitan? I'm thinking left-handed.Greggo
7:32, you are absolutely correct!
That bumper sticker on a Honda Element, never would have expected that.
I am a liberal weenie and a Christian. I don't need you to define me, thank you very much. I personally don't think I could abort, but that's between God and the individual. He'll decide the punishment I think. I am for a huge open front door for immigrants but I want the border closed. I want the tent to be inclusive, I personnaly don't care what the individual helping me feed the hungry does in his bedroom. I'll let God handle that one.I'll pray for those who have to resort to name calling and labeling as means of levreging their political point....and I'll even admit they have points....just not ones I wish to follow.AARP is running a correct ad. If we don't come together we are all going down.
Isn't it odd that all the bashing of Christians with stereotypical descriptions was prompted by a Christian bumper sticker that directly contradicted those stereotypes?Maybe the media-created caricature of Christians is wrong. Ya think?
6:45 - elected a liar as president? you must be referring to Clinton, eh?...watch where you leave your cigars.
there are six things wich the Lord hates,Yes, seven wich are an abomination to Him.Haughty eyes, a lying tongue, and hands that shed innocent blood, a heart that divises wiched plans, feet that run rapidly to evil,a false witness who utters lies, and one who spreads strife among brothers.proverbs6:16-19i dont think Obama fits all seven but he definatly fits 5 of them, the DNC platform embraces all seven.
I don't know 10:20, from everything I've read and all the visual representations of Jesus I've seen, he sure looks and sounds like a hippy to me.6:45, you say the biggest sin they committed was electing a liar as president. What president are you refering to? For as long as I've been alive they have all lied. Hell, just to get elected they have to lie. Who would vote for a president who says he will have to cut spending and raise taxes to balance the budget? We can't handle that kind of truth.
BG, good stuff
In the end, ONLY The Lord knows a person's heart and I doubt it'll matter whether a person politically was right, left, or in the middle. Certainly no one in Wise County who has any Biblical knowledge at all can make that judgement because if they do, they will then realize that THEY will be judged with that same measure of judgement. Extreme right and extreme left go fight between yourselves and leave us normal, regular Christian folks out of it. Your BOTH nuts in your own way.
Why 8:44 AM,I was reading your Diatribe and thought for sure you were describing "W" Bush, until your last sentence. Re-Read it again and this time THINK about who you're describing.
Hello!!!? how about some random thoughts or has the well run dry. This crap above is too heavy. By the way I have always thought it a little strange to put stickers on a car. What is the point? To tell people what you think or believe? What ever. Next subject please....
When the topic is religeon the argument is always more acrimonious and humor rare. Not just here but in all settings. What does this say about our ability to think rationally and find common ground for the greater good?There is no hope for humanity.
OMG..I JUST REALIZED, I HAVE NO RANDOM THOTS FOR FRIDAY..WTF WRONG WITH ME.....DF'NFAKEBG...
Posting that picture was a lazy way of running a blog.
There is more politics in organized religion than in the US government. Look at all the different churches and the advertising they do to attract members is no different from a cheap bumper sticker.And 7:32 - you are absolutely and totally right.
Someone posted earlier that we really don't know what Jesus would do. I agree. I think there are some things we can all assume Jesus would NOT do;1) Drive around a gas guzzling vehicle.2)Sit on his ass watching garbage on TV3)Spend millions building megachurches with electronic signs and 5 acre parking lots.4)Sit in a little camouflage box and sucker-punch deer with a high powered rifle.5)Call it sport (see #4)6)Put millions of people behind bars and treat them like animals.7)Blog (might be wrong about that one!)8)Be a lawyer
How much did Frank Kent pay you to post that picture?
BG, are you on vacation again? Where are Friday's random thoughts? How can we survive Friday without them???? Do we need to make our own?
8:15 and 10:07---You're right on track....we should start a church. My favorite all time bumper sticker on the back of an old pickup truck-- "I like long walks on the beach, poetry, and poking dead things with sticks" I almost wrecked I was laughing so hard!
"4)Sit in a little camouflage box and sucker-punch deer with a high powered rifle.5)Call it sport (see #4)"So you would rather have disease ridden animals, over population of said animals and more accidents etc due to the over population?! Get real! MOST decent people who HUNT also eat the deer that they are hunting. As with anything there are bad apples to give the good ones a bad name. Get over yourself and become a vegetarian if you have a problem with animals being killed for FOOD. Think about it next time you eat a burger.
I'm a Christian Democrat whether you like it or not.
Barry, When did you buy an Element???
No I don't have a problem with killing animals for food. Don't see a lot of deer burgers out there, not near as many as I see antlers hanging on the walls of small-minded people who somehow think their manhood has been proven by killing a big buck. Show us all what a big man you really are. Don't bait the deer. Go out there with a knife and bring back that buck. Then I'll be more impressed.Most people do not consume the deer they slaughter in the name of recreation. And if this were about food, doe meat is better. And if this were about population control, the doe/buck proportion is wildly out of balance because you hunters are killing too many bucks and damaging the quality of the herd.The tenor of your statement shows you to have serious self esteem problems. Check the size of your penis and get back to me on that one, bubba
You leave me no choice: Thanks for the idea 10:31Random Friday Midday Rambling (RFMR)1- Every time I see a cop do a good deed I am thankful for them.2-Every time I come into contact with a cop in a traffic related encounter I leave thinking that they are mostly just tax collectors with guns3-#2 outnumbers #1 approx 50-14- My dog is better company than my girlfriend. There are some things I can't do with him.5- Anyone who thinks we're not well on our way to WW3 watches too much american idle.6- It's going to take a hell of a lot more than a bad jalapeno to kill me, and if I'm wrong, send my rotting corpse down to Mexico along with a thank you note (in spanish)7- Back when the telegraph was invented, it was considered amazing that we could form letters by pushing buttons and communicate. When the telephone came around we were newly amazed at being able to convey our voices. Now text messaging seems to be taking over and I wonder how that constitutes progress.8- Hair stylists don't seem to suffer in a recession.
Good Reading-Great entertainment!!Thanks Bloggers!!
Mzchef, Help me please. I am getting so hungry.
Random Friday Afternoon Thought:My inspection sticker is current, my registration sticker is current, I carry my current insurance card in the glove box, I like to think of myself as an upstanding citizen, so why do I panic and feel like a guilty dog when a police car is behind me?
11:20 LMBO Seeing as how I am a woman and I do not hunt I think you need to check YOUR size! No self esteem problems here but thanks for the concern. ;)
Holy cow, I agree with something Wordkyle said. I must rethink my existence.
A Jew is poised to become prime minister of New Zealand. Some things you should be concerned about:The price of woolA wall around AustraliaKiwi birds becoming the Israeli state animal.Maoris wearing beanies.Home-made rockets from FijiIranian gunboats crossing the Pacific
when the po is behind me i dont feel guilty, all my stickers and taxes are paid, i dont speed on purpose and i try to use my blinker, no i dont feel guilty, i grab my wallet because of the sucking sound its about to encounter.
Shhh - I'm working on a church ad for the Messenger. Where can I find a graphic to match, "our church absolutely has it ALL"......we'll even come get ya in a limmo.10:07 - No. three is priceless!
10;47....... Well I guess that is in fact pretty funny if you are a woman. What's even funnier is the level of your ignorance as pertains to wildlife management.Specifically:The deer population never seemed to have a problem controlling itself before we took it on as a project. Disease is not a problem in a poulation when natural selection is allowed to run its course. But if there is an intervention (hunting for trophies) then the strongest, most viable males are eliminated from the gene pool, leaving all future generations weaker and more susceptible. Since this conversation started by discussing things Jesus would not do, can you still tell me He would think hunters' behavior in 21st cuntury America somehow compliments nature?Let me explain it to you this way. If an alien force descended on earth and harvested all of the strongest, smartest, best looking young men, what do you think your children/grandchildren would be like as progeny of all of the geeks and retards who were left behind?
Didn't Jesus impliment the no Christian is left behind program?
God Bless these folks who don't truly KNOW U..... amen
Dime to a doughnut says 12:29 is MZ incognito.
1:25---- You are indeed a confused patriot. That was Jesus Gonzales and the program to which you refer is "No Weedeater Left Behind"
AAuuuGh!! Now I have no random thoughts!!
1:21, Not a problem with aliens abducting all of us strong, smart, good looking young men. I have made lots of deposits at the sperm bank so the women can keep my genes alive with turkey basters.
A poll:Everyone who thinks BG should take his day's earnings and throw a party for us for running his blog as he sits on his ass all day, say AY
BG.. why are you so f'n cruel ? did you gulfren piss u off..??
Would you people try a little harder to focus, please. The discussion was supposed to decide whether Christians are left handed or not.
1:21 Does calling me ignorant stroke your ego sweetie? I am far from ignorant when it comes to wildlife management. Just because you are a bambi lover doesnt mean that ALL hunters are bad, as you seem to think. Like I said before there are bad apples in EVERY bunch, that doesnt make every single one of them bad. The ones who do hunt illegally, for sport or the big trophy will have to answer to Him for what they do.As for your alien explanation...I would have to believe in them to even try to go there, so I wont waste my time.

For those that haven't seen it, an explanation for the lack of posts is at www.wisecounty.com . Ugh.
How can people be so ignorant as to use the word "electrocute" when when refering to someone who was shocked and not killed?That pisses me off!!
I'm suffocationg in Deer Talk, please move on!!I need to fart!!As an old saying goes, "Opinions are like A-Holes, everybody has one". This is getting old because people don't really care they just like to argue.I need a nap!!I hope everyone is able to leave all of this at their work station with their unfinished work and be over it by the time they go home today. Have a great weekend and I realize from these responses some are preparing for a miserable one. I realize a lot of this doesn't make much since but man, it's fun!!
There's more comments on this post than the "Lammers got her ass fired" post.
Well you could have told us before we spent most of the day trashing you for being lazy. Hope we satisfactorily picked up the slack. If there's anybody down there at google you want roughed up a little, just say the word. We have people that can handle that sort of thing. Go get 'em wordkyle. We got your back
1:10 I get the same feeling when an African American is walking behind me.
To anonymous 12:21...Since you are served your meals via a slingshot, I am unable to provide you any recipes appropriate for your dining method. Good luck.******************************************To anonymous 1:28...It is a bloody good thing you did not bet the farm. Had you been paying attention you would know that not only do I hunt deer but venison is my favourite red meat. I so enjoy venison I NEVER eat venison sausage. Tenderloin medallions and roast are my favorite parts of the deer. I do however enjoy ground venison mixed with ground pork. Each year I kill and freeze the meat of a doe. I do not hunt and kill bucks because I prefer the texture of the back strap from a doe. ******************************************As for you people arguing over whether or not you know what Jesus would do...No you do NOT. If Jesus is indeed, as claimed by Christians, the physical manifestation of God then it is darned presumptuous of you Crazy Christians to claim you know WWJD because NO ONE CAN KNOW THE MIND OF GOD.You Crazy Christian Whack Jobs are a HOOT
3:02, It's OK to admit that you are O'Bammy's grandmother. We promise not to hold it against you.
OK I admit I'm BHO's granny, but the white side thank you very much. BTW, I'm voting McCain. And if Barry wins I'm moving to Africa cause that's where all your $$$$ will be shortly thereafter
LET MY BLOGGERS GO!
WHAT type of loon feels compelled to announce to random strangers that they are Christian and a Leftist? I would not have gotten that close to take a photo because you just never know when that type of person will decide to go postal.
Thank god mzchief cleared all this up for us. She does know everything.God isn't real. Get over it.
Correction 5:28 - she just thinks she knows everything....at least our blog author thinks so......:-) - he will believe anybody that brags on him.
Again the name calling. Can you not just say, it doesn't compute with me. I am a Christian. I am a leftie, and happy as a loon!With that being said, I think I have as much value as the next person. I work at adding value to the experiences of those around me. Don't want to disappoint Mschief. but I am a Christian, I am a leftie, and I love vinison, so much so I chuckle at all the effort to cook it "so it won't taste like vinison."
The misguided Roman version of Christianity and it's various derivatives are a religion About Jesus rather than the Religion of Jesus. It allows people to ignore the laws of God and/or be deceitful to themselves and other to made it fit their sins. Therefore they can suck the brains out of unborn babies and practice homosexuallity, etc.
Let's see...Pro-abortion/Pro-choicePro-gay rights/gay marriageLegalize marijuana, coke & ...Ban prayer in schools, exceptfor MuslimsSounds Christian to me..."America is no longer a Christian nation" Barak Obama
Denney - your "let's see" list includes the right to choose one over the other, doesn't it?It has nothing to do with Christianity, being a Muslim, an athiest, etc.But it certainly does have everything to do with......FREEDOM!Thank God for America!
"Let them rever nothing but religion, morality and liberty." John Adams
If you send all the bright young Americans to be shot at in an undeclared war what does that do to the gene pool?Know what I mean?
Cheese AND Rice!!!Well, at least no one used my name in vain in any of the 78 previous comments, although some of you did say some kinda nasty things about my namesake hispanic brothers.Dad and I have 10 pesos bet as to whether there will be more "christians" named after me or more muslims named after Moh.Personally, i think John the Baptist is going to come up from behind and win by a head :)Just think, if Constantine hadn't made Rome Christian you might all be worshiping Manitou by now...Yours in utter confusion...INRI - Yeshu ben Joseph ben David(Really, what the hell would i do?_
If you don't agree with Christianity, then do your own thing. I find it interesting as hell that you non-Christians MUST bash Christianity. You have the offer, you refuse it, fine. Go on.. go on with any religion you choose. But your bashings of Christianity scream your fears that you are wrong! The more you bash, the more we see your insecurity. Ha...you can kick and scream all you want here. There will be a reckoning. Maybe in your next life, you can get it right.
Anonymous 6:17, my brother:I thank God for freedom in America as well. Do you really think America's laws are above God's?The sting of death is sin; and the strength of sin is the law. 1 Corinthians 15:56Do you think legalizing murder is anything less than an abomination in the site of God? Do you really believe that our own individual ethical and moral beliefs supercedes God.There was a time that Christians would rather be fed to lions than bow down to government and their laws.If America were truly a free country, there would be NO laws. Justify your position all you want, but looking back at the history of man in the Bible, I don't believe God will accept your endorsement of abortion/murder. But I could be wrong...
To anonymous 10:08...I cannot speak for every non Christian but I for one really would appreciate you Whacko Christians being Christians and keeping it out of MY face. For you Christians who cannot handle your personal choices well enough to keep them to yourselves perhaps you should consider not bashing gays for being openly gay.Think about it. There are SOME non Christians who are as repulsed by your openly Whacko Christian antics as some Christians are by openly gay couples. Oh, and following your line of logic, the reason you bash gays is because of your fears about being gay."The more you bash, the more we see your insecurity."
Vern 10:23..........We might not be sending our best and brightest to get shot at, but regardless; percentage-wise very few actually get hit. The ones who don't are often stengthened by the challenge, the ones who do get hit, well I guess a christian would tell you it's all part of god's grand design. I personally think there's a lot of randomness involved.Darwin rules.
I see more Christians bashsing non-Christian people than non-Christians bashing Christian people. Imagine there no heaven or hell, but people still wanted to do good things and help. That's the world I want to live in. John Lennon is the man.
2:48, Mzchief... You are the purest example of "fearing you are wrong." I had a feeling you would respond to my post because of that exact reason. You always seem to resort to name calling when you feel threatened. (WHACKO) Who said I bash gays? Have you ever heard me do so? I'd bet you'd be surprised to find that MANY Christians know that to judge others is not acceptable. Judgement Day will come, but it won't be us Christians sitting on the big bench. We try to live by the example of Christ. Yes, we are sinners, big sinners. Who says we are perfect, huh? No one pushes Christianity in your face any more than "gayism" is pushed into mine. As I said before...... if you have a "thing" against Christianity, then go on with your own beliefs. I will tell you though that I AM A CHRISTIAN and I WILL ALWAYS support my beliefs when others attack what they themselves are insecure about ( and that means you too). If Christianity is "in your face" it's because you won't turn your face away and go your own way. Move on, Mzchief.....move on.
I am responsible for 17 of the comments here on this post, keeping your blog afloat while you had war with the google thought police. How dare you censor me now.
To anonymous 7:32...Not ALL Christians are "Wacko Christians." I am beginning to believe, contrary to your declaration, that you do indeed fall into the Wacko category.Oh, and as far as the hokum in the Christian Big Book of Myths and Fables, you need to get it through your head that people who are NOT Christian put as much stock in the Christian Big Book of Myths and Fables as Christians put in the Muslim Big Book of Myths and Fables. Perhaps, your book of Christian rules is for Christians and the Muslim Big Book of Myths and Fables is for Muslims. Incidentally, the MAJORITY of Earth's population think both cults are chock full of gullible cretins.
THIS BUMPER STICKER WILL BE MUCH MORE PREVALEMT AFTER THE RAPTURE. THE CARS WITH FISH DECALS AND "REAL MEN LOVE JESUS" WILL BE ABANDONED.
LOL! I knew you STILL could not turn away from this discussion. Frankly, I could care less that you are a HATER OF CHRISTIANITY. That is NOT my worry. I simply informed you that WE try to live our lives more Christ-like and you go on and on about your own HATE of the Christian beliefs. You amaze me, Mzchief. You talk out of both sides of your mouth. Condemning others for name-calling and "hating" on others while you are actually the HEAD of both kinds of emotional storms. Let's see what you will do next,....attack my grammar skills, call my folks wolves, continue on your rant about the Christian Bible? ONE MORE TIME let me say to you: Turn away and leave the Christians to our own religion. Move on, Mzchief, move on. (Bet ya just can't tho... lol!)
Matthew 7:1-5 is one of the most misquoted scriptures in the bible. It is an example of the pagan Roman influence on the Jewish sect that is called Christianity. The verse DOES NOT PROHIBIT the judgement and punishment of those who do not abide by the Law given by God to his people after they were delivered from Egypt. It does not tell us, Jews or Christians, that we are not permitted to tell our children that homosexuals are sinners, that murderers are sinners, and that God tells us what their punishment should be. Most of the recent history of reinterpetation of God's laws center around society's desire to liberalize views on sexuality, expecially acts of sex that have been frowned upon by man since his creation. "It is easy to misquote almost anything to produce a desired effect or opinion."
To anonymous 8:32...You are the one who HAD to respond to my original comment. You are the one who continues your diatribe. You are the one who believes I hate Christians because you cannot distinguish between Crazy Christians and real Christians. I dislike, distrust and am disgusted by ALL fanatics. Fanatics have proved, throughout history, to be a danger to civilization. Let us see how good YOU are at taking your own advice."Turn away and leave the non Christians to our own beliefs. Move on, anonymous, move on. (Bet ya just can't tho... lol!)"
mzchief, the firey pits of hell await your arrival..
910 remember there is only one unforgivable sin...which you have already committed, so say whatever you like, there is NO HOPE FOR YOU NOW !!
Widdle bumpersticker = big controversy!Solution: When you see a bumper sticker you don't like, simply hack up a lunger and deposit said lunger on vehicle windshield.They'll know why it's there.Exception to the solution: If the sticker is a "Hillary '08" or "Obama '08" kick a dent in the door instead of blowing a lung oyster on the glass.It's a beautiful thing.
As usual mzchief is right
I can see mzchief teaching Sunday school for little kids some day.
To anonymous 9:28/9:32...So says you and your myths and fables. Get it through your head, the Christian Big Book of Myths and Fables contain the instructions for CHRISTIANS and I am NOT a Christian.Learn something about religious history and you will realize that EVERY civilization, some for nearly 10 thousand years, had THE "rules" for the "only way" to worship God and their demi-gods. Christianity is just one of the newest cults to pretend to have all the answers.You people who honestly believe ANY book has all the answers and clues to God are the ones who have marginalized God to such an extent that you believe God is within the understanding of mere humans. Such people are arrogant little pukes who will NEVER know a truly fulfilling relationship with God.Good luck to you and worshipping your demi-god and the icon you believe is God.I knew you would be unable to let it go and move on...*LOL@U* You should know me well enough to know that toying with mindless cretins is one of the things I do on The Blog. I am done with you, now run along, if you can....*StillLOL@U*
955 YOU WILL SUFFER..YOU HAVE NO SOUL
the 100'th commenter will have everlasting life...
THANK YOU JESUS...
9:55, Mzchief, sorry, those other bloggers were not me. I just returned from out of town to see if you had popped yourself back in here, as I KNEW YOU WOULD. It really hackles you to not have the last word! ha! YOU are the ONE who CANNOT walk away. I have told you from the BEGINNING to leave us to our religion and walk away. Do your own thing. You just can't do it. I was also right about the name calling. You jumped right back into that:Such people are arrogant little pukes. DON'T even presume that YOU have the authority to say who will and who will not have a truly fulfilling relationship with God. I know God and I know His Son. Once again, you fall behind. Your loss. So.... TURN AWAY, stop your bashing and get on with your own beliefs. You are a little peon who I am actually happy I won't have to see in Heaven. (Perhaps you are here to do Satan's work with your vile attitude toward God's people.)You are done with me? That's a laugh! You will NEVER be done with me or the likes of me because you try too hard to put yourself above others. I don't need to take my own advice.... it was given to you. WALK AWAY from the Christian belief and stop your bashing of what you do not have a clue about. I'm not laughting at you, I'm shaking my head because you are pitiful. Absolutely pitiful and so very transparent.
Since I'm a Christian and a sinner, I left my comment because it seems my beliefs differ from the Christian with the bumper sticker and I want it known. I bashed no one. I judged no one.I would hope that Christians would help one another not be complacent nor apathetic in their beliefs. If a Christian chooses not to adhere to God's Word and puts his own beliefs first, we get Wacko Christians...I admire Muslims because they are willing to die for their beliefs; but it saddens me that, like many Christians, they hve difficultly living them.A lukewarm, complacent, apethetic Christian does far more damage to Christianity than any Christian basher ever could. Following Christ means following His instruction and example. He loved sinners; but rebuked sin and advocated repentance."Men tell us in these days that sin is what you think it is. Well, it is not. Sin is what God thinks it is. You may think according to your own conscience. God thinks according to His." John G. Lake "Men do not differ much about what things they call evils; they differ enormously about what evils they will call excusable." G. K. Chesterton"The world is a dangerous place to live; not because of the people who are evil, but because of the people who don't do anything about it." Albert Einstein "To ignore evil is to become an accomplice to it." Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.You're free to bash me all you want, I expect it... I will not stand silent while a Wacko tries to make the world think they are following Christ.
3:26 PM"You are a little peon who I am actually happy I won't have to see in Heaven."Now that's a Christian statement.You will know they are Christians by their love...
Denny Crane, You are the WACKO for sure. At least the other poster does take a stand against Christian bashers. What are you? The "toe licker" "banjo plucker" for Mzchief? I don't see anything wacko in the posts here at all. Mzchief just calls anyone wacko if they don't follow her nonsense in thinking. And yes... I too am happy that her kind will not be in heaven. Are you aware that God FIGHTS evil? There are lots who I am happy will not grace the streets of heaven. I bet you know a few too...........so get off your own high horse. Your name sake says enough about you.
Christians can't be "upset" in the face of sin? They can't defend Christianity in the face of attackers? Geeeeeze, Denny Crane, you should revisit the story of Jesus in the Temple. You seem to be the caliber of Peter, or better yet, of Judas.
I defend Christianity, but choose to hate sin and love the sinner. Christ set that example.You're not Jesus and this isn't His temple/house.Christians are commissioned to bring salvation to non-believers. If you prefer someone/anyone to burn in hell, there's a good chance you will probably see them there. Go practice your religion, but do not think it lines up with Christianity. Get your snakes charmed, bomb abortion clinics, picket fallen soldiers funerals...set your example of fighting sin, but it's not the great commission.
Never said I was Jesus! Here's a bulletin for you: YOU'RE NOT JESUS EITHER! And judging by many of your posts on this blog, you're certainly not the "perfect" Christian you profess to be. Here's another bulletin for you.... This world IS Jesus' temple. Maybe you better pay better attention. I am a Christian who follows God's word. I am not a radical "WACKO" Christian but I am sick and tired of the endless tirade of Christian bashers here (led by Mzchief). Take a look at one of the quotes YOU put up:"To ignore evil is to become an accomplice to it." I guess that makes YOU an accomplice.
"This world IS Jesus' temple. Maybe you better pay better attention." Sorry partner, I disagree.The temple of God is in man or His house of worship. It's definitely not of the world. 1 Cor. 3:16 & John 15:16"you're certainly not the "perfect" Christian you profess to be." True, but I never professed to be perfect. As a matter of fact, I claimed to be a sinner just 4 commments above yours.You go ahead and condemn them to hell all you want: all you do is add fuel their fire. Romans 12:20 says love them and it's like coals of fire being heaped on their head!And by the way, I believe there are WACKO Christians among us...I may very possibly be one of them. But what I do pay very close attention to what Jesus actually said in the Bible as well as the behavior of fellow Christians.Because of my conservative and Christian beliefs, I don't believe in: Pro Choice, I consider abortion murder; Gay marriage; government dependency; school taught morality and spirituality; the legalization of dope; nor will I vote for any politician who supports any of the above.Just one complacent, apethetic Christian does far more damage than twelve Christian bashers ever could. Don't let your anger steal your joy.
Your conservative Christian beliefs are the same as mine, exactly the same. I am not angry, I have plenty of joy that comes from my Christian background, my family, and my friends. I just refuse to sit by while the bashing goes on and on on this blog. I disagree strongly with your opinion that one complacent, apathetic Christian does far more damage that twelve Christian bashers. There are MANY young people who are very impressionable in this world and I do not wish to sit idly by while Christian bashers lead them away. Those young people need to see Christians of ALL KINDS be willing to stand for their beliefs and not turn the other cheek when we are continually attacked. Therefore, Denny Crane, you keep your opinions and I'll keep mine. Our perspectives may be different but I believe Christ would be happy to see you stand firm in your beliefs in the face of those who would destroy it and not join them in the downing of your fellow Christians. I will always stand by my fellow Christians, no matter to what "degree" they are Christian. I think Jesus would be happy with that. FAKE Christians only fuel my fire, though....and I can usually spot them rather quickly. I do NOT appreciate mzchief's bashing of our faith and I intend to let her know that every time she blabs about it. I don't like bashing of any kind, and I will not turn my head the other direction. As I said before, mzchief can have her beliefs, and she can spout them all she wants WITHOUT bashing anyone else's beliefs. I won't relent on that.
My money's on the muslims. You christians have become a pathetic lot. Personally I like standing on the sidelines.
Christian Left,Please defend THIS, and be specific!
