The Campaign For DA

Dr. Robert Jeffress - First Baptist Dallas

He hit another new low yesterday. Right before his service (and I expect he is preaching a sermon someone else has written for him since he spends all his time on Fox News), he tweeted this:


After the sermon, he tweeted this:
So he hawks a product on Sunday afternoon? That wouldn't have anything to do with collecting money, right? That wouldn't have anything to do with greed, right? Here's the link and here's a screenshot:

And, note, that site is called Pathway to Victory - a technically different entity that FBC Dallas. I want to know where the money goes. He's becoming a modern day Robert Tilton.

I'm sure 10% will go to the church thru the form of tithes.

Maybe he should just take a 10% pay cut too.

Actually, 1:54, Christians are the ones who think they have it all figured out. Christians claim to have knowledge of a place outside reality where some people are tortured for eternity after they die, and they just so happen to have a ticket that keeps them out of that place. I only claim to know what can be reasonably demonstrated, and have doubts about everything else. Doubt is humble, Christians are arrogant.

You don't sound very humble. And you don't have a very good concept of Christianity. The New Testament is a good place to start if you care to learn more.

I don't believe that France exists. I've never seen it with my own eyes. I have only the testimony of others who claim that it's real.

I also don't believe in "oxygen." Never seen it, it's supposedly some invisible life-giving force. So-called "experts" claim it exists, and that without it we'll die.

Lots of rational people accept a lot of things on faith. It gives them comfort and order to their universe.

The Money Changers has taken over the Temple (looking at you, Jeffress) once more. Maybe time to open a can of whoop-ass on ya'll again.

PS - Of course the last time I did this, you fake followers sicced Pilate on me.

Wordkyle, you obviously don't know what my words "reasonably demonstrated" mean. I've never been to France, but I have a reasonable expectation based on available evidence that it exists. There is a wealth of video and photo evidence, as well as thousands of maps that are consistent in the way they depict the country. I've met French people, heard the language, eaten the cuisine, and even seen a film or two. I'm not "taking it on faith" that France exists, I've assessed the evidence that is available to me and determined that if I got on a plane bound for France, I can reasonably expect to end up there.

I could go into just as much detail about how the existence of oxygen can be demonstrated, but I've made my point. There is nothing "rational" about faith. Faith is, by definition, believing in something in the absence of evidence or against the available evidence. It's believing in something for no good reason.

7:30, I've read both testaments. The new one is worse than the old one.

905 - You trust that the videos and photos of France are real. You don't know because you've never seen it with your own eyes. As for language, for all you know people are simply repeating nonsense that they've heard others say. You accept that it's a language on faith. You assessed what you hoped was evidence. There is lots of evidence that the earth is flat or the moon landing was faked, if you want to believe that evidence.

My point is that everything you believe that you haven't personally seen or tested and demonstrated is based on trust in the sources. Faith is not "believing in something in the absence of evidence or against the available evidence." It's having complete confidence and trust in something. How a person arrives at that point is their own path, individual and unique. Many people believe in "science" even in the face of rampant fraud and cheating. Other's believe in God because of actual changes that have occurred in their life.

If your faith in science comforts you and gives meaning and order to your universe, more power to you. Your path is not everyone's.

Comparing a belief in France to a belief in a god is ludicrous. Before the existence of a god can even be seriously considered, first someone must put together a coherent definition of what a god is. That has never happened. But someone can easily put forth a definition of what France is, then gather evidence to back up that definition. You're comparing apples to invisible oranges.

You threw out personal experience a pathway to belief in god. That's what religion relies on- Personal experience and anecdotal evidence. Science relies on physical evidence, experimentation, careful documentation, and peer review. One is clearly the more reliable form of obtaining knowledge.

I'm out for the day, but I'll leave you with this challenge- Name one instance in history where religion has proven a scientific concept incorrect. You can't, because it has never happened. It has always been the other way around.

126 - You believe "science relies on physical evidence, experimentation, careful documentation, and peer review." Someone told you, or you read something, that said experiments were conducted, etc. In other words, you had faith.

You also believe France exists, based on anecdotal evidence. Apparently if enough people tell you something you believe it.

...and that's your objective, scientific opinion? It's "worse than the old one"? You're a real slave to science...
