Couldn't agree with you more Gideon  thumbsup.gif  

I always say you don't need membership in any religion to get to God.  Likewise I do not believe in eternal torture

Indeed, very well said.

So that is indeed your religion.  Your religion says that alll have their own path and we shouldn't expect people to have the same beliefs as we do.  That being said, you have violated your own rule by telling me that I should not have my religion.

This  is some of the most shallow reasoning I have ever heard. I understand this is a paranormal type forum (and I love that subject) but apparently Gideon you seem to think you are a piranha on this subject  when in reality you are a big fish in a very small pool (not that that forum is small but it is not dedicated to this purpose).   If you really are such a big fish Gideon I challenge you to try some of that tripe over at www.theologyweb.com

I am certain you will beg off and insert one of your typical bigotries.  I am not one of the big fish there, but there are some who could easily send you packing.

TD all the best with your friend.  If I can be of assistance, PM me or something.  I would suggest that you solicit some counsel from more believers as well.

Dee Dee, not sure why you included my name in that post of yours  blink.gif .  I certainly believe in the God of the Bible and of jesus Christ.

I was pointing out to Gideon that all that he stated in his post was exactly as our God really is - merciful, kind, loving, forgiving......

All the best,

BFG - it was all directed to Gideon, the quoting system here is unlike other forums and confuses me.  However in response to your comment - yes one DOES need membership in a religion to get to God - that religion being "in Christ" - no one can get to the Father except through Him.

I made innocent remarks, and you want to send me to hell.  how dare youi?

I wasn't personally offended - you were meaning to offend a person but a belief system and I showed you the inconsistency of it.  As far as bigotry go back to our last exchange and substitue the word "black" or "jew" into your tirades and you would see your bigotry.  

And I knew you would beg off.  It wasn't a threat (I could be cute and patronizing and link you to the definition of threat) it was a suggestion that you put your tuckus where your mouth is.  You begged off, your choice.  

And do you know what a scape-goat is because your use of it made absolutely zero sense.

Really now - insulting remarks?  Shall I go and retrieve your quotes about Christians?    My my we are the drama queen.  The only "insulting" thing was that I said you spoke bigotry.  And I can back that up.  All the rest was disagreeing with inconsistent thinking.

I am sorry you are such a volatile person - no need for the mods to care - I said my peace and I will not be back.

comments like that, and calling some one a  Bigot or hoping they will go to Hell are  unacceptable at U.M.

For the first comment. This site is not dedicated to any one religion it has many and the mere act of telling people that to get to Heaven they Must accept Christ is considered hostile.
I consider it hostile. We also often use the term prosyletise when struck by this sort of comment.  I will not give up my religion because someone told me I would burn in hell otherwise. Or disapear into eternity or what ever is supposed to happen to people who don't hold a 'Christ' ticket when they die.
I'm sure you would be un-impressed if I told you that Pan would chase you through 11 life cycles around the sun if you don't turn to the ways of nature.

I see you run your own site, I'm pleased for you, I would be one of the heathens (as you refer to them) if I posted there. I don't agrue with people who insist on using Bible quotes, they may believe they have torn me down with evidence and fact but would they feel the same if I used a book on Wicca as evidence . I doubt it.


Gideon did not as far as I can see segregate any-one group of people, however your posts have had quite a sharp edge to them, wouldn't you agree.

Your comments and queries to my post are welcome. But please do not call posters biggot's and or prosyletise while at U.M.

I am taking your last sentence as permission to publicly address your view as moderator.  Many sites do not allow - now first for my use of the "b" word - are comments like this:

QUOTE
awwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwww
poor little xian says i am "dumb" when he is hurt-that's right up there with "my god will beat up your god"
why didn't you just say that, you immature moron..


for which GM was rebuked by a  moderator, but then he comes on with (after I made only ONE post in which he misrepresented my site - and the assumption he used to misrep it further showed his "b" - as does this gem:

QUOTE
This is a wonderful website intended for the education of uniformed jews against the barrage of xianity being shoved down their throats for 2000 years. Xians are welcome. Ususlly they say really stupid, uninfored things.


Now throw in any other group for Xian in that sentence and everyone would be crying the b-word.

So GM misrepresented a proveable fact and when asked why he thought that, responded with a "b" comment against Christians.  My first post was simply to correct misinformation, it wasn't aggressive or insulting and what you just read above was GM's first post to me.  Something is rotten in Denmark.

Secondly, you are basically saying being a Christian is fine as long as you don't think Jesus is the only way to God.  That is nonsensical.  That is the equivalent of saying I think it is cool you keep kosher as long as you eat ham.

If GM can hurl "b" like that in his very first post to a new member who just asked a question on an outright falsehood that GM told, and you are going to demand that Christians not say what Christians believe because it "offends you" - then I look forward to the prompt deletion of my account.

This is like an episode of the Twilight Zone.

Oh and us ignorant hell-mongering Christians at theologyweb are not the belief police - you can pretty much advocate anything you want within some very broad boundaries.  Yep even you heathens.   You Kismit would probably handle yourself well as you speak with maturity, GM would get the proverbial spanking of his life from us ignorant dimwits.

Thank you for pointing out GM's posts, I was actually un aware of them, you are free to choose which sites you wish to but i would like to adress this on a more personal level.

QUOTE

No, what I am saying is that this is not a Christian based site, people are free to believe the way they want to, and I'm sure you allow that at your site. But this one particular Christian view is hostile and does not allow for others to feel free in there choices and beliefs. It is the only downfall in Christianity as far as I can see, but it is sadly still accepted as something that is done with good intentions. And we know where good intentions lead to.

So you can think it is the only way, you are free to feel it is the only way, but when you express that it is infact the only way, you alienate alot of good people with good moral standards who's religious beliefs are as valid as your own.
