    Perhaps you should try to put more "critical thought" in your claims before you make them and your positions before you take them - perhaps then you would not find yourself in this situation where you cannot show that your argument is sound.

    Also, see the recent post from Catz Part Deux and tell us how he is wrong.

    And in any event, -my- original point remains:
    If you follow the tenets of Christianty, you are are Christian; if you do not, you are not.
    The thing about this whole stream of argument that upsets me is that you ignore that different sects of Christianity have different beliefs.

    Thus, if I'm reading you right, you believe that only those who believe exactly as you do are actually Christian.

    I happen to think differently. So, I suppose, in your mind, that makes me not a Christian.

    Personally, I've always believed that the opposite of faith is NOT doubt. The opposite of faith is CERTAINTY. Faith is trusting in that which we do not - in fact CAN NOT know.

    The belief that one is SO right in their practice that they deign to know the mind of GOd are actually the ones who are not strong in their faith.

    Those who believe that the laws should exactly reflect their Christian moral code are, indeed, the least confident in their faith - because they wish to make those whose free will is unlike theirs into criminals.

    Here is what persecution looks like:

    OMG, Catz. You need an exorcism, and the TD demon must be cast out.

    Nowhere have I said anything like that.

    I said that Christianity has a certain set of beliefs; if the belief that Homosexulaity is a sin is included in that set of beliefs, then any supposedly Christian sect that does not believe that homosexuality is a sin is not Christian.

    Yes. You can construct a syllogism.
    Good boy. We are all very impressed.
    And so far, you have constructed.... nothing.
    You tried to counter what I said and failed.

    Now unless you have an actual relevant argument to make
    As noted before, how to determine if a particular belief is nor is not "Christian" is completely relevant to the issue.

    Well only to that one sect that believes homosexuality is a sin. Or maybe the anti homosexual sect thinks the pro homosexuality needs guidance. Or maybe they think we are all sinners and acceptance Jesus Christ can absolve one of their sins.

    Well, I certainly admit it if I'm confused as to what constitutes a Christian, but I was always told that in order to be a Christian you had to believe that Christ was the son of God and that he died for our sins, extending from that that he would come back and save the righteous from armageddon (or something).

    You dont understand.
    Christiantiy holds homosexuality as a sin, or it doesnt.

    If it does, and you believe that homosexuality is -not- a sin, then, by you not believing in the tents of Christianity, are necessarily not a Christian.

    Your personal opinion the matter is meaningless -- you are or you rant, depending on your adherence to the tenets of Christiantiy.
