I, however, always enjoy a challenge and in particular I find it quite satisfying to have someone assassinate my character because they have a self-perceived superior intellect or believe they argue from a superior position of knowledge, or gnosis if you will. Indeed I do...and that may be why I came to DP, for the stimulation and excitement of written debate.

    Nonetheless I am still disappointed in Christianity and the lack of God's Grace...and from my personal experience, in particular from the protestant side of the house. Certainly if Christians were less legalistic, less condemning and more willing to accept "...for no man is without sin...", including themselves, and in understanding offer Grace to the world at large, I personally believe there would be less charges of hypocrisy from those on the outside looking in.
    I'm just wondering, do you read the Bible very much? I know people would like preachers to only focus on the Grace, and not talk about sin, or God's wrath, but that wouldn't be the true Gospel, it would be a false Gospel, and it wouldn't show people the way to heaven. The only way to heaven is to repent and submit your life to Jesus Christ. Anything else would be a lie.

    Jesus warned that the world would hate his message, and they do.

Smith cd's. But rest assured I don't expect Christians to go out of their way to be kind to others since there is no reason to believe they will. I actually expect the opposite given the history of their failure to act in the most basic of Christian attributes. The offering of Grace.
    I am waiting on the Rapture, and I do wish I could do all of those things, but it's simply not possible for me. I have cut my hair to donate to charity, but that's all I am able to do. I can't wait to be healed and serve the Lord Jesus in the Millenial Kingdom. Until then all I can do is Live my life and study and watch like he said to do in Matthew.

    I talk to a guy named Jesus every day at work, whenever my clients are shipping stuff across the Mexican border into Laredo.
    Are you coming to bed?
    I can't. This is important.

    Yeah, I think i did once when I was drunk a long time ago.
    The night was kind of a blurr but I swore he said I have permission to start a new religion if I wanted to. I think he also said feel free to pick the standards and I can choose three things to be rewarded with in heaven.....

    Sometimes I hear Paul the Perve tell me "Its your Birthday" over and over again....

    Two highly talented individuals; I'm glad they've both been able to kick and move on.
