no not on this forum - you are not to preach on the threads - read the rules
enough with your preaching now

I stopped preaching a few posts ago, but I have a right to true freedom of speech. I don't feel a desire to listen to somebody who is clearly intollerant, prejudice and disdainful.

Regardless, take care, JG. I'll say a prayer for you before I go to bed tonight and will hope for the best.

Later.

And I'll say one for you, Insaniac, because anyone who is so callous as to happily consign his fellow man to being forever lost simply because they don't agree with you needs all the prayers he can get.

Callous means one has an indifference to anothers suffering, which is nonsensical because I am far from that. It's better to build someone up, than it is to tear them down. Theres more joy in giving, than there is in recieving.


If you don't agree with a morally just, forgiving, and loving God, thats fine. It really is. Freedom of choice.

The choice is ultimately yours and yours alone, to decide whether or not you want to be "forever lost."

Everyone has the freedom to live however they want. However, wrong conduct comes with it's consequences.

There are no consequences for doing right. Think about it.

I hope that made sense. I'm just trying to point out a truth. I apologise if I come across as disrespectful.


Take care, Wearer.

no one is trying to deny you freedom of speech. please dont make the mistake of thinking that means you can say whatever you want wherever you want.
there are guidelines here that state that no one is allowed to preach their religion on the boards. this is not my rule, but it's a good rule.
i am intolerant of people who push their beliefs on others. i make no bones about that as you can see. disdainful...hmm  not really applicable here, and what was the other? oh yes, prejudice. also not applicable here. seems like you just want to use nasty words yourself there bud.
ah well water off a duck's back as they say
you go ahead and pray for me, that's very nice of you. thank you.
btw i am not a nonbeliever in god but i do  think it's very sad that some people aren't happy unless everyone believes what they do.

Inaniac, I believe in a God who through the sacrifice of his oly son redeemed the sins of the world.
Noone is abandoned, or consigned to the lonesome grave, because everyone is redeemed by the blood of the lamb Jesus. That's why the Catholic church holds true to the doctrine of Purgatory, we all go there to be purged of our sins.

Take care, Wearer.
I'm sorry but I don't think I need building up... Morality that comes from rules (don't do this because... if you'll do this, I'll do that) is maybe OK for people who think like kids but an adult doesn't need the fear of punishment to act morally... or fear of a reward for that matter.  Your perspective is flawed.  You act because of a god, I act because of Me.

Anyhow back to the topic. I dont agree with everything these folks have done, but I get it. This is the result of a over bearing government who has went way to far infringing the rights of the people.

Some things are true, even if you dont believe them.

Being a libertarian at heat (see Etienne de la Boetie, discourse on voluntary servitude) I understand what you are saying but on the other end, isn't choosing god over a governement a leap towards an other extreme?

Their beliefs could be deadly.. Radical religious groups worry me more than the government.. They are often blinded by their undeniable faith in God, and tend to lose sight of the "picture".
Right.  Don't let the body counts fool you.

Being a Libertarian means that you are free to express yourself openly and within the market as long as you do not infringe on the property of another individual. If the individual chooses god over his GOV so be it... it's her choice.  

I should add:  GOD and GOV should never be compared.... one is make believe and the other tries to make you believe.
