    it's just me:

    Since I'm not interested in your rants against Jehovah's Witnesses, you are now on my "Ignore List." It will spare me the effort of having to scroll past your irritating one-liners, in which you continue to say nothing of significance.

    Don't parade your disassociations. Just do it.

    Yeah, I know, JWs always turn tail and run when you ask them to back up their heresies. Don't worry, I'll make sure everybody knows what a heretic you are whether you're watching or not.

    Daniel Light:

    The fact that Jehovah took the trouble of inspiring dozens of men, over a period of several centuries, to pen his words is evidence enough that God's word, the Bible, is important. You seem unaware of the fact that God initially had dealings only with the direct descendants of Abraham (the Jews) and it was through them that he inspired the Bible writers. The Bible was not available to all humanity in the beginning because most humans were pagans worshipping false gods.

    Then during the time of Roman Emperor Constantine (another pagan), Christendom, as we know it today, began establishing itself. Before long, pagan Rome hijacked the Bible and installed Roman Catholic Popes who, while claiming they were Christians, did everything within their power to prevent the common people from reading the Bible. The Pope wanted the Bible to stay in the dead language of Latin--which most people could not read. Anyone caught translating the Bible was burned to death by order of the Roman Catholic Pope.

    The other pagan nations, meanwhile, could care less about the Bible because they were content with their imaginary gods. In fact, to this day--in the 21st century--pagan nations have continued attempting to stop people from reading the Bible. These efforts by rebellious humans have failed, as yabberefugee pointed out at Post 47 (quoted above). http://www.politicalforum.com/index...-interpretation.564669/page-2#post-1071223371

    Jehovah has seen to it that his written instructions have been preserved, despite attempts by wicked humans, throughout the centuries, to destroy the Bible or to at least prevent people from reading it. Human efforts have failed in that regard. Your above comments are based upon your ignorance of the facts.

    Can't defend against a truth so you attempt to ignore it. Typical of a theist.

    Why don't people start not talking with you before they declare that they're not going to talk with you.
    I have people on ignore, but I never parade my disassociations. In business, parading one's disassociations is a career killer.

    "despite attempts by wicked men"? Isn't God in in complete control? Isn't God sovereign? Is not everything else subject to Him? I'm not sure that I recognize the "god' that you cite. The God that I believe in is as sovereign over His creation as an author is over his novel work or a potter is over a lump of clay. Please don't tell me that you believe that you are to some extent a coauthor with God or that God's novel work includes 'fill in the blanks'.

    Good is what God is; evil is what God is not. God reveals both good and evil because anything, even God, is revealed just as much by what it is not as it is by what it is. There is no struggle between God and "attempts by wicked men".

    Resorting to name calling? You just prove how desperate you are in using a failed tactic.

    Obviously you cannot defend your statements and just continue to flail.

    Nope, just telling it like it is. You started the name calling hours ago. There is no reasoning with someone like you.

    And there3 you go again, name calli9ng and making things up. Typical for someone like you.

    As for "reasoning", you should not use words that you don't know the meaning of.

    Now you are projecting.

    From another poster responding to you (Post 254: "Yes, it is obvious that you don't wish to discuss the actual topic as proven by all of your posts and nonsense".


    This was a post to someone other than me - about me. You claim to be a priest but then turn around and engage in sissy tactics - talking about someone in a post not addressed to that person.

    William (the person you are talking to in the above post) stating he had a close relatives was a Minister. I said I had relatives of the cloth as well. -Will posted a one word response "names"

    To ask for names of someones close relatives is an absurd request and a violation of PF rules.

    You then pipe up to William "You wont get any names" followed by the accusation that I am an impostor.

    Then - after accusing me of being an impostor - you project what you did on to me by claiming that I have accused others of being an impostor.

    Classic Projection. Projection is a psychological defense mechanism in which individuals attribute characteristics they find unacceptable in themselves to another person

    You are an impostor, I remember you from the last time I was here. You are always pretending to be an expert. This thread was about Bible interpretation, not about me or somebody's relatives.

    You are the one claiming to be a Priest - not I. You were the one that jumped into a conversation and about someones relatives - the one who always relies on ad hom when your perspective is challenged.

    Once again your post consists of projecting your issues on to others.

    While what you say about JW's is true - you do the same when your silly and heretical Trinity beliefs are challenged.

    As do you when anyone who knows reveals that you don't know what you are talking about.

    I'll argue Trinitarian theology with you and the JWs any time. But they'll just run away from questions they know they can't answer and you'll just start a food fight so everybody will forget what the question was. Trolls always do.

    You continue to do little but project your issues onto others - it is your modus operandi.

    As stated in my previous post - the Trinity is heresy. Man made dogma decreed by Emperor Constantine for political purposes - and adopted by the Church for political purposes.
