    I agree that he was stating his beliefs as a born again christian.

    If i ever ran across an enemy warrior who thought he was bulletproof because of his God... i'd probably chuckle as I put his theory to the test.

    The essential lesson was that the Temple of God should be used STRICTLY for the glorification of God and nothing else.

    That's ok, but don't be saying things like that publicly while at the same time representing the U.S. government. We don't need people out killing people in the name of the U.S. government and saying that they are doing it for God.

    That is not what the story shows.

    So you think that the Temple of God should be used for something other than the glorification of God? Is that what Jesus taught?

    Here's an interesting story

    And, behold, one came and said unto him, Good Master, what good thing shall I do, that I may have eternal life?

    17 And he said unto him, Why callest thou me good? there is none good but one, that is, God: but if thou wilt enter into life, keep the commandments.

    18 He saith unto him, Which? Jesus said, Thou shalt do no murder, Thou shalt not commit adultery, Thou shalt not steal, Thou shalt not bear false witness,

    19 Honour thy father and thy mother: and, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself.

    20 The young man saith unto him, All these things have I kept from my youth up: what lack I yet?

    21 Jesus said unto him, If thou wilt be perfect, go and sell that thou hast, and give to the poor, and thou shalt have treasure in heaven: and come and follow me.

    22 But when the young man heard that saying, he went away sorrowful: for he had great possessions.

    23 Then said Jesus unto his disciples, Verily I say unto you, That a rich man shall hardly enter into the kingdom of heaven.

    24 And again I say unto you, It is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle, than for a rich man to enter into the kingdom of God.
    I thought the bold was interesting because it demonstrated the deep humility that Jesus had. He personally didn't think of himself as good, he felt that only God was good.

    Did I say that he directly said that?

    Since you like polls so much, why not cut to the chase and create one that reads

    I hate religious people. Do you agree with me, yes or no.

    It would certainly make your "ready to pounce" attempts here more efficient.
    Maybe religious people ought to stop doing such idiotic things. Ever think of that one? There would be no reason to point out all of these ridiculous things if the religious didn't constantly say and do such ridiculous things.
    There is nothing demonstrably true that religion can provide the world that cannot be achieved more rationally through entirely secular means.
