Just remember that the Jesus character will toss you into the fire if you don't follow him.
So you're calling your hero a liar? Shame on you!
The Jesus character said that you should cut off body parts if they cause you to sin so that you won't end up in hell. If the Catholic priests followed that advice they would all be eunuchs.
Wyrd you are caught in the intellectual elitism of the religious left. Christ teachings bring healing to any who learn and follow them.
The Jesus character taught hate. Do you think it is a good idea to follow someone who teaches and demands that people should be hateful?
As it says in Luke 14:26 (NKJV) = *If anyone comes to Me and does not hate his father and mother, wife and children, brothers and sisters, yes, and his own life also, he cannot be My disciple.*
If you don't hate your family and yourself then Jesus doesn't want you around him.
Nah, Jesus did nothing of the sort, Wyrd. You are projecting whatever it is you are feeling inside to an outside source.
Jesus said that you can be a sorcerer just like he was by reciting magic incantations to purge people of demons. But be sure to have a herd of pigs ready for the demons to go into and do it where the pigs can run off a cliff with the pigs. That will kill the demons.

*Matthew 17:14-21 (Voice) =
14 They had come down from the mountain, and as they headed toward town, they came to a crowd. As they approached the crowd, a man rushed up to Jesus and knelt before Him.
Man from the Crowd: 15 Lord, have mercy on my son. He has seizures. Sometimes when they come on, my son falls into the fire or into a pond. We are very concerned for him. 16 I brought him to Your disciples, but they could not heal him.
Jesus: 17 This generation is no better than the generation who wandered in the desert, who lost faith and bowed down to golden idols as soon as Moses disappeared upon Mount Sinai! How long will I have to shepherd these unbelieving sheep? (turning to the man) Bring the boy to Me.
18 The man did, and Jesus castigated the demon who had taken up residence in the boy. And the demon fled the boy’s body at the sound of Jesus’ voice, and the boy was healed from that moment on. No more shaking. No more falling into fires.
19 Later, when they were away from the crowds, the disciples asked Jesus why they hadn’t been able to drive out the demon themselves.
Jesus: 20 Because you have so little faith. I tell you this: if you had even a faint spark of faith, even faith as tiny as a mustard seed, you could say to this mountain, “Move from here to there,” and because of your faith, the mountain would move. If you had just a sliver of faith, you would find nothing impossible. [21 But this kind is not realized except through much prayer and fasting.]*
wyrd continues to misinterpret the Bible: that's fine.
I also once told a fellow, 60 years ago, that I would beat the hell out of him, if he ever called my girlfriend such a name, again. ha ha ha
Now, do you think I could actually beat the hell out of anyone? Given the definition of hell?
Of course if you only can interpret the NT literally, due to an ignorance of a plethora of literary instruments... ha ha
BTW, without the use of such instruments, much of poetry would be such a waste of time, for the poet. The same goes for any writing that is trying to move beyond, to transcend literal words, in order to arrive at some place that the literal has a hard time of going.
But you know this stuff, surely, and if you do not, I would seriously consider expanding your own education. ha ha. Of course, I figure you were trying to be comical, so it's all good. For playing the fool can indeed be comedy and generally is.
Have you ever interpreted anything in the Bible?
The Bible contains a passage about turning over bad people to the devil so that he can beat the hell out of them in order to save their souls. Didn't that happen to the Jesus character?
As it says in *1 Corinthians 5:1-5 (CEV) =
I have heard terrible things about some of you. In fact, you are behaving worse than the Gentiles. A man is even sleeping with his own stepmother.[a] 2 You are proud, when you ought to feel bad enough to chase away anyone who acts like that.
3-4 I am with you only in my thoughts. But in the name of our Lord Jesus I have already judged this man, as though I were with you in person. So when you meet together and the power of the Lord Jesus is with you, I will be there too. 5 You must then hand that man over to Satan. His body will be destroyed, but his spirit will be saved when the Lord Jesus returns.*
Satan will beat the crap out of you and save your soul.
not hardly, many murder in the name of their God sadly - in fact one of our Christian posters here became a mass murderer
"And in another, Houser cheered Muslim extremists for defending their religion.
“Yes it’s true, Muslims are alone in shutting down liberals that mock their God. They have my complete Christian respect.”"
Jesus had sex with his own child mother Mary, then hung out in the childs privates for 9 months - lot of weird stuff in there
and of course the Adam and Eve story of incest to populate the world
And the anti-Godist nonsense continues because they know they cannot prove that God does not exist.
So they strike out.
And the theists here laugh at them.
See there are still many here doing Satan's work... I can't explain why you are here otherwise.. unless you can find no outlet to tell little kids there is no Santa Claus and Easter Bunny... which is still very evil. Any of you ever
ToddWB, take it easy or you will pop a cork.
We have many anti-Godists here who are very emotionally ill.-+
Thanx Jake, but no chance of that.. tho' I do worry that we could be communicating with actual demons! (tho' we are dealing with demonrats! LOL)
. . . and republirats as well. I don't think the anti-Godists are demons, just confused human beings.
Funny how those who say they don't believe in a personal God hate Him in a personal way.
God doesn't send anyone to hell, He simply honors their wishes.
This is the first time I have seen it expressed like that.
Do you remember how Paul conned the Galatians with his story about a Jew who died for their sins? They finally wised up and then he got pissed and started calling them fools and idiots. They were fools and idiots for believing in the lunatic in the first place.
Yep, we "remember", Wyrd. We were all there, right? You must have forgot.
The guy has a serious, possibly dangerous, obsession with Christians.
