About me

I’m a Christian, I like to go exploring, would like to have my own farm, would like to go to Israel and plant some trees in the desert there. I’m into reading and watching shows and movies about these things: astronomy, archeology, mineralogy, logical fallacies, the bible, mineral hunting, farming, history, haunted houses, UFOs, alien abductions, crop circles, megaliths, pyramids, bigfoot, unexplained disappearances and cryptozoology. I know a decent amount about psychology, narcissism, psychopathy, sociopathy and avoidant personality disorder. I like tennis and to golf a little for fun. When I say “I’m a Christian” that means “Christ-follower” not “my own heart-follower”, “opinion-follower”, “my own will above Christ’s-follower”, or “follower of whoever wants me to follow them over Christ’s will”. And how can you know Christ’s will? He stated it in the Bible, and where it is said in riddles, there are often explanations of them within the Bible itself, including from Christ.

I’ve saved a few lives over the recent years, physically (unfortunately all the people whom I saved in person, are severely hateful, backstabbing, unthankful, mentally unstable drunks) and have lead over 100 people, mostly teens, to Christ from 1998-2004. From about 2007-2009 I also lead many people to Christ and helped many to refrain from committing suicide right away, though combined, this amount does not seem to have come close to my earlier success. I had less success during the second period because of various cyberstalkers, especially atheist ones, especially a certain four atheists. Among the non-atheists were Arminian and “saved by works” type Christians, who are prone to mental illness and still in their sins.

I mainly spend my time searching for and posting overlooked evidence for the Bible, and naturally such evidence would go against anti-Biblical claims and theories.

For many years I’ve been trying to publish very large books in defense of Christianity and Reformed Baptist doctrine, or rather against Arminian heresies, including the teaching that tithing is required by God and that tithing will result in a return of 10 or 100 times what you’ve tithed, at some time in the future. However, the harassers I mentioned, especially the atheists and insane woman, hindrance from my parents, harassment from the police, harassment from false and fellow Christians (and abandonment by both) a hoard of bad neighbors, health problems, and many hardware and software failures, have delayed it greatly, since 2004. However, if I had published the first ones that early, it would have been premature as I know, from having continued to develop them over time, however, the harassment and other problems I mentioned contributed to my slowness in completing them. At this time, all the books are near a publishing state, however, due to having multiple projects to deal with now and a massive amount of information to go through before putting in the finishing touches.

Note to people who wonder why their comments don’t get posted: 1) Fake names 2) Fake emails = anonymous coward. If you can insult me and use a completely false profile, while I show mine, you’re comments will not be read past the first sentence. 3) Dumb questions like “How do you know there is a God” (look around and consider: what were the odds of all the beautiful things in the universe (down to the microscopic level and those things far far away that you can’t see, much of which is not just beautiful, but useful for living, and even ugly things can be “cute” and amaze)… what are the odds of all that being mere chance? And what is the evidence that the universe is just some natural event? And for you who believe in parallel universes and multiple universes and other dimensions with life: where is your evidence? No, this universe is unique, and the only other thing like a universe where life exists according to the evident Bible, is Heaven. And if there is another dimension with life, it would only be Hell, and where demons dwell while still being able to interact with this planet. And for those who ask, “Why do you assume the Bible is true?” My answer: Why do you assume that I assume guy who doesn’t read past the title, or carefully, or who asks questions without looking carefully for the answers? And besides my own journal being filled with evidence for the Bible, the Internet is overloaded with it. So, for you logic-impaired morons who still can’t figure it out, here’s some help: “If, the, Bible, is, true, then, it, is, right, about, God, existing, and whatever, else, it, says, about, him.” Was that simple and slow enough for you? It’s not hard reading a book about the Bible or the Bible itself clueless people. It’s not hard to pray, “If you exist show me the evidence”.

Further: when you start a sentence off with an insult, or type long rants or make repeated posts using a fake name and especially email: I consider that harassment, just like you hypocritical morons would if that were done to you.

May God continue to do good to my friends and enemies, and gift them good gifts, as he has done for thousands of years, and may he save billions of people from ending up in Hell and give them eternal life.

    God be with you, it sounds like you would be doing us all a favor.

    I can’t say I appreciate your stab at Catholics when you refer to us as ‘cult Christians’, but I believe you are on the whole in the right direction. I myself am a Catholic, and I believe in many of the things I have read from you here. We are not all that different. A grace we could all exercise more is a second chance, giving others a second chance, and I pray that you will too. Please don’t take offense at what I’m saying, this is just how I see it, and I would like you to see it in the clearest way possible, whether or not the result of that is views that align with mine.

    I originally came over here to comment on your quote about global warmingists, and that is what I shall do now. I believe that the earth is heating up, yes, so maybe you will call me a ‘global warmingist’, but I also believe that abortion is severely wrong. So I’m paying attention to both, not ignoring one or the other.

    You must look at the whole picture, my friend, look at all the people, not just a select few, to know what is really happening.

    God bless.

      “You must look at the whole picture, my friend, look at all the people, not just a select few, to know what is really happening.”

      And your evidence that I haven’t looked at the whole picture and only a “select” few people is… It’s your own claim. It’s obvious that you are the one who has not looked at the whole picture, being that you made a claim like that without evidence — that you assumed. Do you know the difference between Catholicism and Calvinism, or why Luther broke away? We are different, especially taking what Revelation says into account. There are three types of Roman Catholics (and in general this applies to all Christians): There is the type who take their religion seriously, and so study ways to defend it using “public declarations” made by the Pope or councils of bishops or something like them, which are supposedly infallible. The second type believes that their church is infallible but doesn’t know their official teachings well, they just trust that it’s the true church with some basic knowledge. The third has basic knowledge, but doesn’t believe their church is the only way to God, and doesn’t know why they do various rituals, but just do so thinking that performing those rituals will, or might help them get forgiveness and to Heaven, no matter how they live their lives, even if it’s denying that God can save them. So, the last type trust in the rituals themselves, as if they were magic. A Reformed equivalent of the third type would be one who trusts in any of these for salvation: communion, baptism, reading the Bible, praying, praising God, especially on Sundays inside a church building. I usually meet the last type of Catholic. The one that I said worshiped Randy Orton in my journal — she called her parents her “Rock”, just like that, and if I remember right, she put it in bold. General differences: Your church prays to mere humans and angels for salvation, rather than to God alone, goes to priests to be forgiven rather than to God alone… some worship idols, and it seems recently in the past few years, even ridiculous things like a supposed image of “the Virgin Mary” on a piece of toast. You don’t seem to know the attitude of the Pope’s towards Reformed Christians, Calvinists: Calvinist’s have no place in Heaven in the eyes of the Popes, Muslims and witches who reject the Bible have a better chance of going to Heaven in the eyes of your last two popes, why are you in disagreement with them? In fact the attitude of the last two popes towards embracing the religions of the world as legitimate has lead to the creation of new Catholic denominations. Do I have to go over what Luther already did 400+ years ago? Did you read what Calvin’s said in reply to Sadoleto? If you knew the difference between Catholics and Calvinists, you never would have told me we are “not all that different”. And how can you forget: Calvinists, no Reformed Baptist or Presbyterian has ever killed anything close to 50,000,000 over 1000 years. Only communist atheists have killed more than that. We’re alike in superficial ways when it comes to religion.

      The wise ones of your denomination are even against your Popes for heresies against their own official Catholic doctrines: http://www.traditioninaction.org/HotTopics/a00ConsequencesIndex.html There’s no disagreements as serious in my Church like yours has. The main divisions between Baptists and Presbyterians are:

      how to dress, if communion should be allowed for non-members of a local church or not, and if sprinkling water on a person counts as baptism. That’s it. Yet your members disagree on how to be saved; the most important aspect of the Christian religion. Your church boasts about unity, sure there is unity about various things, but when every other person in your church disagrees about how to be saved, and your church doesn’t separate out the heretics and nominal Christians hardly, not even if they molest a child, how can your church boast about unity? And this is a trait I know to be true among all false churches, from experience, from having seen the big picture: their members contradict not just themselves, but each other, even when they are with each other they come up with incompatible teachings. I won’t argue with you about this.

    Okay: I’m pretty mad: I thought I had passworded this part of my journal. No wonder it was getting comments then. Oh well, apparently God wanted everyone to see it. Still mad.

    Thanks for the information. I agree there are some things out there that we need to steer clear of including weird doctrine. I may not have the same church background. I don’t mind learning about different church theologians, but I find that we can get so wrapped up in that we forget to turn to Christ over some theologian’s “opinion” so I just stick to the Bible and try to keep myself out of theological debates.

    I figure all I can do is pray and let the Holy Spirit do the work He’s so famous for doing with folks. You’re really cool (no I’m not kissing up)keep on doing what the Lord’s called you to do and HANG IN THERE! :-D

    • July 26, 2010 at 4:23 PM

      Did you mean this?:

      I agree there are some things out there that we need to steer clear of including weird doctrine. I don’t have the same Christian type of upbringing as all other church theologians, but I don’t mind learning what they have to teach. I find that some people automatically believe some theologian’s opinion and forget to consult the Bible and pray. I just stick to the Bible and try to keep myself out of theological debates.

      I figure all I can do is pray and let the Holy Spirit do the work…

      The Bible has verses which command or imply to refute false doctrines which claim to be Biblical, and to rebuke Christians who teach heresy. It also teaches to mock fools back (but not in an evil way like they do) to shut them up, but not to mock mockers back because then they will hate you (a mistake I’ve made many times). It doesn’t say to avoid false doctrine, but to try and get rid of them by refuting them verbally, and that if some people reject verbal correction or just verbal teaching without correction to keep obeying God with the hope that your good behavior will persuade them to turn to him, and to also use prayer. As for debates, it teaches to debate, but that if the person you are debating is a heretic (someone who is stubbornly speaking against the Bible and resisting reasoning) to avoid them after the first and especially the second correction you give them, and to avoid arguments of ignorance (like someone arguing the Bible is filled with contradictions, which anyone can see is not true or not a significant argument by spending a few days or weeks of studying with the convenience of search engines, libraries and book stores and going to churches and collecting responses to various Christians on questions concerning whatever contradiction they bring up – as opposed to just reading and thoughtlessly believing an alleged contradiction and then saying to Christians, “Ahah: you are wrong because this shows the Bible contradicts itself). Remember Jesus said that we are the salt of the Earth (those who bring God’s judgment (his word, corrections using it and explanations of his word – remember what happened to Lot’s wife?).

      Everything will be unimaginably beautiful one day, thanks to God’s creativity. The only things that won’t be cool are the people in Hell.

    Greetings Daniel!
    This is my first time looking over your website, so please excuse me if my opinions are solely a response to your “About Me” page. You appear very adamant in your opinions about religion, and as someone who has never met a serious “christ follower”, I had some questions about your (and your god’s) message. Please don’t consider this a rant or in any way hateful, I’m truly genuinely curious.

    1.Have you read the Torah, the Koran, or any other religious text in its entirety? Because your intro indicates that you want people to read and utilize the bible to defend a prospective against your version of Christianity. Doesn’t this mean that you should study other religious texts in order to disprove them? Food for thought; it may help in your argument.

    2.I’m not trying to debate whether you are wrong or right; every person is entitled to voice their opinions. However, I don’t understand why (also in your intro) you say “When you start a sentence off with an insult… I consider that harassment”, and yet in many of your responses you call people who dispute your message “morons”, “heartless psychopaths”, and “maliciously lying and harassing idiots”. I’ve read the bible several times, with the exception of revelations, and I don’t remember Christ ever using similar sentiments when he was trying to show others the error of their ways. Harmful words will not strengthen your argument or make the other person more willing to accept your message. (I’m assuming you desire others to catch on to your message based on the mentions you make to saving lives) As a Christ follower, where are you getting this strategy from?

    3.This is my most curious point. You say that “God desires that all men be saved”, but not everyone will be in real life. Does this mean (in your perspective) that God can’t have everything he desires? I’ve always considered the bible as depicting an omnipotent and infallible god, which doesn’t quite seem to correspond with a figure that desires something and cannot achieve his desires.

    With peace in mind, brother,

      “Greetings Daniel!
      This is my first time looking over your website, so please excuse me if my opinions are solely a response to your “About Me” page. You appear very adamant in your opinions about religion,”

      They aren’t opinions. You assume they are because you didn’t check for evidence. Like you said, just a response to my about me page, and as I pointed out in the beginning, you can use a search engine to find it if you don’t want to look through my journal.

      “and as someone who has never met a serious “christ follower”, I had some questions about your (and your god’s) message. Please don’t consider this a rant or in any way hateful, I’m truly genuinely curious.

      1.Have you read the Torah,”

      The Torah is included in the Bible, I’ve read it many times because I use it to defend the Bible and live my life. Or did you mean the Talmud, which is racist?

      “the Koran,”

      I’ve read the Quran and wrote a book about it; it’s full of mistakes and absurdities. See http://20questions.to learn why Islam is wrong, and http://faceofislam.tk to see how corrupt it can make those who believe it.

      “or any other religious text in its entirety?”

      You don’t have to read the entire book of whatever religion to know it’s right or wrong. If the Bible said, “The sky is red and looks red to all humans and always will” there’s a clue right there that it’s wrong. Or if it said in one verse: “Jesus Christ the son of God is the saviour.” and a few verses later, “Jesus Christ the son of God doesn’t exist.” there’s another clue, and clues which would show it to not be divine if the were all throughout the Bible or in most of its books. It would still have historical value if there was evidence for what it said, but if no ancient copies were found without these errors, then it would obviously not be from a perfect God. I’ve read “Buddha’s” rants and wrote about them (look for Sunyata in my journal) and see also http://hypocrites.tk

      “Because your intro indicates that you want people to read and utilize the bible to defend a prospective against your version of Christianity.”

      A what.

      “Doesn’t this mean that you should study other religious texts”

      Read my journal and stop assuming things.

      “in order to disprove them? Food for thought; it may help in your argument.”

      See above.

      “2.I’m not trying to debate whether you are wrong or right;”

      You can’t since you don’t know my arguments apparently.

      “every person is entitled to voice their opinions.”

      That’s an assumption based on your ignorance of God. God doesn’t allow people to do whatever they want, and what they are allowed to do is determined by him. If a baby dies in the womb, and hardly had any thoughts, that was what God “entitled” it to be allowed to do. There are no “basic human rights” but opportunities, to do good or evil.

      “However, I don’t understand why (also in your intro) you say “When you start a sentence off with an insult… I consider that harassment”, and yet in many of your responses you call people who dispute your message “morons”, “heartless psychopaths”, and “maliciously lying and harassing idiots”.

      Your putting words in my mouth, your implying that I will only call a person whatever based on if they insult me. Further, you seem to mean that only if someone says, “moron” or some “name” that anything else isn’t an insult, which is childish. Do you know what it means to be conniving? Or if someone says, “Wow I hate your blog bye.” you don’t consider that an insult? Do you know what “insult” means? Look it up in some dictionaries.

      See also my recent reply to Travis here: http://eternian.wordpress.com/wp-admin/post.php?post=3968&action=edit

      Also, a comment may be in response to someone leaving evil comments that I don’t post or who leaves a post that I can post which when I reply to, is also in response to the ones I didn’t show, so don’t assume I just suddenly call someone a moron for no reason.

      “I’ve read the bible several times, with the exception of revelations,”

      no “s”

      “and I don’t remember Christ ever using similar sentiments”

      Then you didn’t read carefully and/or your memory is poor. Read what he said again, and look up the word “morons”, and again, look up what “insult” is. Something to keep in mind is that Christians are supposed to obey God over anyone else and that they are supposed to (and many do) go by God’s standard of right, not the world’s. So remember not to judge Christians by YOUR standard of right.

      “when he was trying to show others the error of their ways.”

      He did, he didn’t try. And that wasn’t the only thing he did.

      “Harmful words will not strengthen your argument or make the other person more willing to accept your message.”

      See above. And also, you’re assuming Christians only speak to lead a person to Christ. Not at all. Look up the word “rebuke” and “condemn” and “avoid” in Scripture (different translations may use different words), which is most efficiently done using e-sword at http://e-sword.net which allows you to compare multiple versions at once. You can also use biblegateway.com to search the NIV.

      “(I’m assuming”

      Never assume. Assumption is the way of morons and cultists.

      “you desire others to catch on to your message based on the mentions you make to saving lives) As a Christ follower, where are you getting this strategy from?”

      Read the Bible.

      “3.This is my most curious point. You say that “God desires that all men be saved”, but not everyone will be in real life.”

      You desire things, but know you can’t have whatever you desire, so with your will, your mind, you restrain yourself from trying to get things you know you can’t get, or try to get what you think will be best first. It has nothing to do with life being real or not, everything that exists is “real” including God’s desires. It has to do with God’s will vs his desires.

      “Does this mean (in your perspective) that God can’t have everything he desires?”

      God chose not to have everything he desires. He willed that many (which will be like nothing compared to an ever expanding population) will end up in Hell as proof of what happens to those who choose to ignore him and hate him (and eventually anyone who ends up in Hell will naturally hate God for sending them there). That way all those who have never sinned and never will will see what it’s like to sin, and it will help convince them to never disobey and to hate disobedience.

      “I’ve always considered the bible as depicting an omnipotent and infallible god, which doesn’t quite seem to correspond with a figure that desires something and cannot achieve his desires.”

      Consider that God is able to show restraint, which shows his omnipotence. Also, there is no logical connection between “getting whatever you desire” and being all powerful, because as I pointed out, but which didn’t get across to you, the desire is not “willing”, “the will”, “choice” or “choosing”.

        Hello again, Daniel,
        I’m fascinated by your explanation that God shows restraint (I’ve never heard this before!). That would explain many things, especially bad circumstances which humans usually do not want to attribute to higher design (natural disasters, the death of a child, etc.). Do you think God feels bad when he must utilize restraint against one of his children?

        That being said, I’m still stuck on the insult point. I understand the vast and varying spectrum of insults. (for instance, I take your phrasing “’Buddha’s’ rants” when referring to the Sutras as an insult). You say “a comment may be in response to someone leaving evil comments that I don’t post … don’t assume I just suddenly call someone a moron for no reason.” One of the main passages of the bible which sticks out for me is Jesus telling his people “Therefore all things whatsoever ye would that men should do to you, do ye even so to them” (Matthew 7:12). You seem very upset by others insulting you. By the law of God, isn’t it your duty to do unto others what you want done unto yourself? This would require never insulting anyone, even when they are rude and apparently deserving. I realize this is a very difficult standard to uphold. You say “ Something to keep in mind is that Christians are supposed to obey God over anyone else and that they are supposed to (and many do) go by God’s standard of right, not the world’s”. I can see the societal limitations of never being rude; people will walk all over you. I’m just pointing out that if one hold’s God’s law above human laws, then the subsequent behavior would be to never do things of which you would not want to be on the receiving end. Side-note: If you can remember specific passages of Jesus insulting (and not just correcting) others, I’d be curious to read more into that.

        I would like to clarify where my assumption for you wanting to spread your message came from. I noticed you are in the process of writing a book (or books), you actively interact with others on a blog explaining your perspective, and you express a sense of accomplishment when you mention saving many lives. From these findings, many people including myself would infer that you want to spread your message. Maybe you are writing that book just for yourself. I’m sorry if that appeared too assumptive, but humans are culturally designed to learn through the process of assumption, assimilation, and accommodation (see Piaget’s cognitive theory).

        Later you say “That’s an assumption based on your ignorance of God”. There are thousands of religions with many moral overlaps, one example being the golden rule which I mentioned earlier. I admit to an ignorance of your God, but to be clear I have a beautifully complex understanding and deep, fruitful relationship with my god (we love each other to pieces). I hope you can respectfully accept this perspective when addressing me, even though you believe the Christian God to be truth (to this statement I am expecting the response “but the Christian God IS truth). I can respect and accept your perspective, I’m only asking for a similar respect in return ["Judge not, that ye be not judged" (Matthew 7:1)] I realize one particular Christian perspective that people should “correct, reject, and be bold to sinners”, but let’s save ourselves the effort and leave the judging of my morality to God alone.

        I’m curious about your statement “There are no “basic human rights” but opportunities, to do good or evil.” Partially this statement alludes me because I do not believe in evil, nor was I raised with the notion. People have tried to convince me by explaining “rape is evil” or “murder is evil” (you even said some people’s comments were evil). I am aware the first two transgressions go against the Ten Commandments, but I see all human action as a result of physiological makeup and upbringing. I believe all people’s souls are pure, and often become tainted by society and genetic abnormalities (there are no bad infants). Feel free to debate this. My main issue with your statement is that you do not believe in human rights. Does this mean that you do not recognize your own and others’ rights “given” to us by the government (if you are from some country which gives its citizens certain rights)? Even if you do not believe in them, do you uphold these human designated laws? A man cannot be an island; part of temporal life is coexisting within society. I understand that your opinions are probably quite different from the opinions of those you interact with daily. Do you believe that God wants you to treat each person with a certain minimal standard, no matter how “good” or “evil” they are? In other words, does God give us “human rights”?

        Again, in peace, brother,

        I might have answered u earlier had I seen that u were the one who kept looking at this page, but your ip for commenting doesn’t match the other one you’re using, so I thought u were someone else.

        “Hello again, Daniel,
        I’m fascinated by your explanation that God shows restraint (I’ve never heard this before!). That would explain many things, especially bad circumstances which humans usually do not want to attribute to higher design (natural disasters, the death of a child, etc.). Do you think God feels bad when he must utilize restraint against one of his children?”

        The comment “restraint against” is confusing, that’s like saying, “not giving food against,” it sounds grammatically nonsensical somehow. God already says how he feels about punishing the wicked:

        And Yahweh was sorry that he had made man on the earth, and it grieved him to his heart. So Yahweh said, “I will blot out man whom I have created from the face of the land, man and animals and creeping things and birds of the heavens, for I am sorry that I have made them. – Gen 6:6-7

        “Have I any pleasure at all that the wicked should die? saith the Lord GOD: and not that he should return from his ways, and live? … Repent and turn from all your transgressions, lest iniquity be your ruin. Cast away from you all the transgressions that you have committed, and make yourselves a new heart and a new spirit! Why will you die, O house of Israel? For I have no pleasure in the death of anyone, declares the Lord GOD; so turn, and live.” … Say to them, As I live, declares the Lord GOD, “I have no pleasure in the death of the wicked, but that the wicked turn from his way and live; turn back, turn back from your evil ways, for why will you die, O house of Israel?” – Ezekiel 18:23,30-32, 33:11

        …he went on ahead, going up to Jerusalem. … And when he drew near and saw the city, he wept over it, saying, “Would that you, even you, had known on this day the things that make for peace! But now they are hidden from your eyes. For the days will come upon you, when your enemies will set up a barricade around you and surround you and hem you in on every side and tear you down to the ground, you and your children within you. And they will not leave one stone upon another in you, because you did not know the time of your visitation.” – Luke 19:28, 42-44

        O Jerusalem, Jerusalem, the city that kills the prophets and stones those who are sent to it! How often would I have gathered your children together as a hen gathers her brood under her wings, and you would not! – Matthew 23:37

        Also someone to keep in mind is that Jesus disappears for an unknown time before condemning the world (the evil ones of it), can you imagine why he would leave for a while, before doing such a thing?

        “That being said, I’m still stuck on the insult point. I understand the vast and varying spectrum of insults. (for instance, I take your phrasing “’Buddha’s’ rants” when referring to the Sutras as an insult).”

        Did you look in the dictionary yet? Or multiple ones? Or look up the definition in a Bible dictionary? Don’t dwell on what is useless.

        “You say “a comment may be in response to someone leaving evil comments that I don’t post … don’t assume I just suddenly call someone a moron for no reason.” One of the main passages of the bible which sticks out for me is Jesus telling his people “Therefore all things whatsoever ye would that men should do to you, do ye even so to them” (Matthew 7:12).”

        Could you not use old english please? Old English isn’t the national language, it’s not the common language, why are you using it? That’s annoying to me. Obviously you’re not listening on this point, otherwise I wouldn’t have had to repeat myself: stop judging me based on your misinterpretation.

        “You seem very upset by others insulting you.”

        Make a point.

        “By the law of God, isn’t it your duty to do unto others what you want done unto yourself?”

        So if I eat a banana I must also force someone to eat one? You’re taking the Bible out of context. Logic: read the Bible, look up the meanings of words you don’t understand, read it in modern English. That way you don’t have to do as much work in understanding what you are reading, which is a waste of time. Listen: the Bible says to rebuke and correct, it also points out correction is unpleasant, but it doesn’t say, “therefore avoid correction and giving it.” If it meant, “don’t hurt anyone’s feelings/don’t cause pain”, we’d all be dead, because if we only did what felt good, we’d all have been killed by disease, starvation, bad weather and wild animals. Only a lazy and stupid person would think, “I’ll avoid all pain and only do what feels good, I’ll sleep all day and avoid work, because it’s painful.” And imagine all the dead children, who if they didn’t die in laziness, died from neglectful parents who only did what caused no pain.

        “This would require never insulting anyone,”

        Answered above.

        “even when they are rude and apparently deserving.”

        You’re right: we should never punish, never even punish our children, just let people do whatever and say nothing that hurts feelings. Forget spanking, lashing, isolation, even saying, “You did wrong!” Let’s all lie down on geese and sleep next to fruit trees, and only eat what falls to the ground, but not even that if it causes muscle pain.

        “I realize this is a very difficult standard to uphold.”

        And you’ll be judged by your very difficult standard, so you better not cause anyone pain, or God will cause it back to you.

        “You say “ Something to keep in mind is that Christians are supposed to obey God over anyone else and that they are supposed to (and many do) go by God’s standard of right, not the world’s”. I can see the societal limitations of never being rude; people will walk all over you. I’m just pointing out that if one hold’s God’s law above human laws, then the subsequent behavior would be to never do things of which you would not want to be on the receiving end.”

        Answered above.

        “Side-note: If you can remember specific passages of Jesus insulting (and not just correcting) others,”

        How many times do I have to tell you to look the word up? Now I’m angry. God imagine how annoying it would be if you told someone they were using a word wrong, and rather than listening just repeatedly used it wrongly over and over. Do I need to say the word that will offend you to describe that feeling?

        “I’d be curious to read more into that.

        I would like to clarify where my assumption for you wanting to spread your message came from.”

        What? Grammar. Even if you fixed it it would still make no sense: what message? And if you’re referring to my religion, what in the world do you think this journal is all about, do you not see the right side of the journal even? What are you talking about?

        “I noticed you are in the process of writing a book (or books), you actively interact with others on a blog explaining your perspective, and you express a sense of accomplishment when you mention saving many lives.”

        It’s not just “my perspective”, it’s God’s, and it’s millions or that of over a billion others, and angels too. To say “your perspective” to avoid saying “the truth” which it sounds like you’re doing, is like someone saying that about someone teaching basic math and algebra correctly or explaining solutions to physical puzzles correctly. I rarely give opinions, and when I do, it’s almost always if not always based on evidence, not pure guessing, because a pure guess is useless.

        “From these findings, many people including myself would infer that you want to spread your message. Maybe you are writing that book just for yourself.”

        What the… why would I write a book for myself? It’s not like I’m making an apple pie to eat. It’s a book, people write books for others unless it’s a diary and never said anything about one.

        “I’m sorry if that appeared too assumptive, but humans are culturally designed to learn through the process of assumption,”

        No “humans” aren’t “DESIGNED” to be stupid, they are MISLEAD by blind and deliberately evil people, and not all humans continue on a path of continuous stupidity and letting people warp their logic whenever they want to.

        “assimilation, and accommodation (see Piaget’s cognitive theory).”

        I’ll wait till judgment day.

        “Later you say “That’s an assumption based on your ignorance of God”. There are thousands of religions with many moral overlaps,”

        You talk as if many religions are unique, you’re talking in ignorance again. A massive number of religions are Christian sects that split off from first. Others are dead religions, because their gods are dead. Many others are silly African ones. The non-Christian ones are hardly if at all moral. And many Christian sects are immoral, the biggest one is very immoral. Hint: children.

        “one example being the golden rule which I mentioned earlier.”

        That’s unique to the Bible. You’re wasting my time by talking to me in your ignorance of not just Christianity, but of basic words like insult. Read first to get a basic understanding, then ask. Don’t put me to task when the info is already in my journal and on the Net.

        “I admit to an ignorance of your God,”

        Our God.

        “but to be clear I have a beautifully complex understanding and deep, fruitful relationship with my god”

        No you don’t.

        “(we love each other to pieces).”

        Where is your evidence? And a false god can also be a demon, and demons hate humans.

        “I hope you can respectfully accept this perspective when addressing me,”

        No, I won’t respect lies and delusions and assumptions and pure guesses and statements without evidence, especially from someone ignorant about religion and logic.

        “even though you believe the Christian God to be truth (to this statement I am expecting the response “but the Christian God IS truth).”

        The Truth hates the False, and no amount of pleading will make them friends.

        “I can respect and accept your perspective,”

        So you claim, without evidence. And what matters is not having the ability, but loving that which is right and hating that which is against God’s laws.

        “I’m only asking for a similar respect in return”

        No, that’s not all you’re asking. You’re asking me to disobey God, and to pander to you.

        “["Judge not, that ye be not judged" (Matthew 7:1)]”

        You don’t know or understand God, love a demon, yet quote my God to me who knows and understands him? Could you get any dumber and more arrogant? How many times do I have to point out to you the category I told you to read?: DO NOT JUDGE!? Go away if you’re going to ramble.

        “I realize one particular Christian perspective that people should “correct, reject, and be bold to sinners”, but let’s save ourselves the effort and leave the judging of my morality to God alone.”

        Moron: are you my God? Why then are you telling me to disobey him? Because you said, “let’s save” with confidence and smugness and sarcasm? Are you a narcissist? A bigot? Or really immature and dumb? I don’t obey actors like you who think their overweening pride and lofty talk is a replacement for TRUTH AND LOVE AND THE LAW OF A PERFECT BEING WHO GAVE HIS PERFECT SON TO SUFFER AND DIE FOR MILLIONS OF EVIL PEOPLE LIKE YOU. Just think about how stupid what you said is? Imagine if I said, with conceit, “Oh let’s not obey our demon shall we and u shall instead obey my God oh my yes. Jeeves bring me my tea and crumpets please, for I thirst and hunger, oh yes indeed.” Would that babble make me right? No: emotional ranting would not make me right. It’s a logical fallacy called, “Appeal to Emotion.” Why should I obey you’re heart you corrupt heat you idiot and ignoramus? “Let’s obey my heart shall we, not ur God, oh yes indeed,” is what you sound like. So what were you saying about not judging miss let’s leave that up to ur God? See what assumption gets you? And worse: ignoring the obvious: that not only am I the opposite of a moron, but that I know and understand the God you are ignorant of, so how dare you try and teach me about him, you presumptuous idiot. What a time-wasting, thankless, fake and brat. You don’t respect me at all, yet ask for respect. What a hypocrite. This isn’t a movie, Miss Obey My Feelings, not your God, This is “real life”. It’s not a game and we’re not on some stage pretending things are real. Hell will be a real place, where rebellious people like you will burn in pain, nonstop, forever.

        “I’m curious about your statement “There are no “basic human rights” but opportunities, to do good or evil.” Partially this statement alludes me because I do not believe in evil,”

        No really? Someone who doesn’t listen, can’t do unto others yet asks me to, yet can’t even be bothered to see where that COMMAND came from, someone who is so arrogant they smugly think that just giving a little “obey my heart not ur God” quip is worthy of obeying OVER THE PERFECT UNIMAGINABLY LOVING AND HATEFUL CREATOR OF THE UNIVERSE? Who are you compared to God to command me?

        “nor was I raised with the notion.”

        If that is so, then you would have become a psychopath, though you talk more like a narcopath: A narcissist with no conscience who uses her patience for evil.

        “People have tried to convince me by explaining “rape is evil” or “murder is evil” (you even said some people’s comments were evil). I am aware the first two transgressions go against the Ten Commandments, but I see all human action as a result of physiological makeup and upbringing.”

        Non-genius: what “physiological makeup and upbringing”. You might as well have said, “a result of things I didn’t bother to understand.” In other words, what do you mean by that? In your mind you just glossed over that like it had nothing to do with intelligence. You’re statement is pointless: physiological makeup, MEANING WHAT? UPBRINGING, MEANING WHAT? THE QUESTION IS: HOW DID THIS DESIGN COME TO BE? HOW DID ANYTHING STRUCTURE IN THIS UNIVERSE COME TO BE? WHAT CAUSE THE FIRST MOTION? WHO TAUGHT THE FIRST HUMAN LANGUAGE AND LAWS AND HOW TO MAKE POISON AND ALL KINDS OF MEDICINES? Do you think some monkey was just mixing up plants one day and then got thousand of others too and thought, “Hey lets keep mixing up plants till we find one that heals blah blah.” Think! Why do ducks protect their eggs! ASK! Do you think ducks say, “Hey by the way ur gonna lay an egg and when u do just keep sitting on it, cuz another duck will come out.” STOP ASSUMING THINGS!

        “I believe all people’s souls are pure,”

        New Age babble. Stop avoiding the words RIGHT AND WRONG, GOOD AND EVIL. The hell do you mean by “pure”? If you don’t believe in evil, what are you talking about “pure” for? “Pure” what you vain idiot? Pure nothing? Dumb. You’re dumb okay?

        “and often become tainted by society and genetic abnormalities (there are no bad infants).”

        A SOUL ISN’T PHYSICAL, SOULS CAN’T BE AFFECTED BY MATTER, GENETICS. And tainted? Idiot: you said there is no evil in your mind, so what “tainted”? And “society”, neat, wow, what else would taint? And why only taint, why not murder, or abuse? See what not being raised with morals turned you into?: An arbitrary, babbling, idiot who can’t make sense.

        “Feel free to debate this.

        Oh no, I refuted you, and am done with you, because you’re probably mentally ill. If you were mentally healthy, you wouldn’t have ignored my good logical advice and kept babbling like a little idiot kid.

        “My main issue with your statement is that you do not believe in human rights.”

        LOOK UP THE WORD “RIGHT” OKAY? And who cares what a mentally ill person has issues with, or a healthy one, what matters is the truth and obeying God in love.

        “Does this mean that you do not recognize your own and others’ rights “given” to us by the government”

        If I said opportunities, the hell would I ignore them for? And government doesn’t give rights IT ACKNOWLEDGES THE SUPPOSED RIGHTS. Use a dictionary and encyclopedia, MORE THAN ONE.

        “(if you are from some country which gives its citizens certain rights)?”

        Angry.

        “Even if you do not believe in them,”

        “do you uphold these human designated laws?”

        I obey God.

        “A man cannot be an island;”

        I don’t care about your vague, pointless, misapplied quotes.

        “part of temporal life is coexisting within society.”

        So live with the Christian one already, no man is an island. Stop pretending they don’t exist, blind hypocrite judge.

        “I understand that your opinions are probably quite different from the opinions”

        IDIOT: FACTS. STOP BEING A BABBLING IDIOT WHO DOESN’T LISTEN, WHO HATES TO LEARN AND ONLY ENJOYS AIRING THE OPINIONS OF THEIR HEART. SHUT UP HYPOCRITE.

        “of those you interact with daily.”

        And shut up with your superfluous babble. Vague moron: merely “interacting” with society doesn’t make it “living” with them, yet according to your vague logic it would, so what are you babbling about me avoiding “society” for you idiot? And dumb fool: READ THE BIBLE MORON, IT SAYS YOU CAN’T AVOID THE WORLD. YOU’RE TELLING ME THAT I’M DOING SOMETHING VERY FEW PEOPLE DO. I’M NOT A HERMIT IDIOT. You’re a super idiot. No wonder you hate seeing me tell off idiots: because instinctively you realize you are one and love the idiots I rebuke. Go away mentally ill criminal: if you don’t like rebukes of evil people, go away. And if there is no such thing as evil: what are you complaining for? Accept me for who I am and shut up.

        “Do you believe that God wants you to treat each person with a certain minimal standard,”

        Minimal what? MORON I SAID I OBEY GOD, WHAT ELSE WOULD I BE OBEYING BUT HIS LAWS? What is “minimal” about that idiot? How am I not obeying a standard you insane moron? Look up “standard”.

        Dear Daniel,
        I took some time to meditate on your response, as it was quite concerning. I had an entire letter of new questions prepared, until I noticed your point at the end claiming I should not reply. In that case, I write this for my own piece of mind, keeping it relatively short and expecting you will not read it.

        I had a dream last night where we met on an airplane. As it was about to crash into the sea, you claimed God was punishing evil. I stared out the window and quietly sang. Your hell sounds truly awful.

        Please forgive me if you think I have not treated you with respect. I do respect you, the same way I respect every creature on this earth.

        Your brother, though unreciprocated,
        Kas Blithe

        P.S. I’m sure no one has ever offered you this before, because it is an absolutely crazy suggestion for you. That being said, I would like to extend an offer to walk in peace with my God. From your blog I’ve noticed you’re not opposed to visiting other churches, so feel free to witness where my understanding originates.

      • April 18, 2011 at 4:34 PM

        I already know about universalism, it’s a logical fallacy, meaning there is absolutely no way it is a workable method to peace with God or at all. If you look for universalism and eternian on google etc., you will see I’ve already written about that repeatedly. Further, listen to yourself, you told me you have no definitive morals, did not even condemn child abuse, but absurdly merely call that “tainted”, so, am I right that your conscience is very little to none, being that child abuse has very little emotional impact on you? Does it delight you? I told you, I am no newbie. I see you read the anti-social personality disorder, and how did that not get across to you? If you read it did you not see the result of raising people without definite, consistent morals, and instead, contradictory ones? Look for my post if you care about truth, on “A Mathematical Like Proof for the True Religion.” I explain clearly, and mathematically, why universalism is a contradiction.

        Does it say anything in my bio here that I wrote a book refuting every possible (in general) argument against Christianity and the Bible? The arguments numbered over 500. I only made one mistake, which was judging to soon where Peter was buried, which doesn’t refute the Bible or Christianity at all. Supposing I carefully analyzed 500 arguments, and carefully sought logical answers, how long do you think that would take me with harassment from stalkers, conartists stealing from me, the Social Security Administration oppressing me, being mistreated by the head pastors of a large church near me, the only one conveniently close by, being harassed by by neighbors, being harassed by the head maintenance man, the apartment staff, the police, having only worked for a few months out of ten years, and my hard drives repeatedly failing, and not having the money to recover the data off any of them, while getting new arguments to list every month, while counseling suicidal people, and coming up with new large books, poems, lyrics and artwork, and my parents mostly working against and/or neglecting me? Can you guess how hard that was and how much thinking I was doing? And I am working on a new version of that book, which I finished, but didn’t publish, and revising. So when you point me to Wikipedia, where I was repeatedly stalked and harassed despite greatly improving some of it’s articles, including ones on religion and science, and almost entirely being shot down for them, a heavily biased encyclopedia which is dominated by atheists and liberals, you are insulting me again. Didn’t I mention in my bio that this journal exists in part as a result of being repeatedly harassed on Wikipedia?

        If you are anti-social, hopefully you only have narcissism disorder, and not the those other two, but, sadly, that would make you a lost cause when it comes to fully logical reasoning concerning truth, which includes the truth about God, the one and only possible one.

      Ad hominems show you to be hateful and illogical, so it you who are close to crazy if you aren’t already. Further, you merely made an insult and gave no evidence of any kind to support your claim. That makes you idiotic and a hypocrite too. Further, why would you be happy if someone was saying crazy things, things that spread illogical thinking and behavior, such as junk science, child abuse, rape, murder and lies? Could it be because you are a psychopath, sociopath or narcissist, besides simply being a stupid mocker? Stop being immoral, illogical and learn what science, truth and evidence means.

        Aww, you can do better than that. Here, I’ll help you out–

        There is no reliable, extra-biblical evidence for the existence of the “Jesus Christ” character. The bible itself can’t really agree on many of the details of this character. At most there might have been some guy, who might have been named Jesus, who might have, among many others, been nailed to a piece of lumber for sedition.

        There, refute my statement. C’mon, man, don’t hold back on me. I’m an atheist pro-choice queer-lovin’ evoloutionist with a contentious streak. Unleash the righteous fury!

    I really enjoy your article on Michio Kaku about being a Christian and then read your “About Me” page and then started reading comments. They are interesting, and I have one request. As you write them and specifically reference the Bible, could you post the verses?

    • November 23, 2011 at 11:18 PM

      Hi, Michio isn’t a Christian at all, you should have made this comment on the page about him, not on my page. I don’t know what verses you’re talking about, you seem to mean verse chapter and numbers, just google what I mention or use books.google or bible.cc to look for similar comments. If you have firefox or chrome you can highlight and drag any pieces of verses I reference to the url field and it will automatically be Googled. Also, I usually don’t reference obscure verses, so whatever I reference here are common place. Just ask a Christian what I’m talking about. I really don’t want to go over my bio repeatedly or the nasty comments I often get.

    Hi Daniel,

    I was led to your site

    http://eternian.wordpress.com/

    while googling for “chuck missler harold camping.”
    I have been browsing through your site for about an hour when I came upon “… will not perish, but have everlasting life.” I had hoped I would see “should not perish, …”

    I intend to re-visit your site for other things I can learn about.
    In the meantime, can you please comment on my statements below?:
    1. I believe the King James is *the* word of God.
    If it is not, where/which is *the* word of God?

    2. I believe it is good to rest on the 7th day of the week.
    The sabbath was made for man. Why do you think God made the sabbath for man?

    3. I believe that observing the sabbath of the land will mean, among other things, less need for fertilizers.

    4. I was born and raised and baptized Roman Catholic. Later on, as an adult I was baptized in a Baptist church. I do not now belong to any organized church but I fervently hope and pray I am a Christian.

    Thank you.

    • December 3, 2011 at 1:02 AM

      “I have been browsing through your site for about an hour when I came upon “… will not perish, but have everlasting life.” I had hoped I would see “should not perish, …””

      If I put “will not” it’s because I believed “should not” was wrong. For example in the OT where God says, “You shall not lie” that word “shall” matters because if it had said, “will not” it would mean no one would lie rather than “don’t do this”. In other words God would be saying, “You won’t/can’t lie” because he wills it, but that’s not what he meant. The same thing with the perish verse, Jesus wasn’t saying, “You might not perish” he was saying you won’t, ever. At least that’s what he meant. But if in old English it says should, then perhaps it has the same meaning but which is not longer conveyed in modern English, and that’s the language we speak in general today, with Old English mainly used for poetic reasons or emphasis, like if I said, “That is thee drink to get.”

      As for the King James the translators themselves said they just did the best job they could and that it wasn’t perfect. There’s definite flaws in it despite what some claim and despite their seemingly rational arguments. If it were perfect it would simply state it is in the English, like God saying, “This translation is perfect” or he’d imply it somehow, that’s my opinion at least. If those people were inspired when translating, we’d know it, they would never have been allowed by God to say, “This isn’t perfect” without him having them retract the statement. Remember, he’s not the author of confusion. Though someone might argue, “How do you know Esther is God’s word?” I’ve shown that that argument fails because Esther has strong clues that it’s God’s word, besides that, it’s not necessary to believe that it is God’s word to be saved, and apparently not other various books. However, what isn’t recommended is stating factually that certain books like Esther aren’t God’s word, because you definitely cannot know that and risk coming under the curse that Revelation mentions, which might only apply to that book, but it’s a big risk tampering with his word by declaring some to be his word and some to not if it’s been accepted for thousands of years as being God’s word. It’s not the same with the apocrypha because the only people who accept that as God’s word are very obscure people with no great standing and Catholics, which are a polytheistic cult, idolators.

      “I believe the King James is *the* word of God. If it is not, where/which is *the* word of God?”

      You mean “thee”? Just kidding. I do to, but so is any good translation. If someone translated a book you wrote and got ten non-critical sentences wrong, it would still be your word. For example if the main story was about how God changed your life, and you mentioned how on the way to becoming a Christian you walked past some brown dogs while going to find a Bible, and that’s all you said of that, and some Japanese person translated that as you walking past a brick restaurant, that wouldn’t mean the entire book was corrupt and untrustworthy. It would be, “most your word,” and metaphorically would just be “your word.” It’s understood, or supposed to be for people with common sense that when you say, “This is God’s word” of some translation, that you don’t mean it’s perfectly translated. What is meant is that in general it is, but you still have to use judgment to determine whether or not the correctness of the translation of verses that haven’t been pondered over as much as the main ones. For example it’s unlikely that a professional translation of the Bible will have John 3:16 translated wrong, because it’s a verse that deals with how to be saved, rather than some verse that just mentions some inconsequential detail like, “Jesus turn to the right to talk to Mary” and no other parts of the Bible mention Jesus turning to talk to her, so that there’s no contradiction possible. A verse like that wouldn’t matter and so no one would be as likely to notice if it got translated wrong, like, “Jesus leaned to the left” as opposed to John 3:16 being translated as, “Whoever believes in me might not perish.” meaning, “You might, or might not whether you trust in me or not.” That would cause a controversy everywhere and would bring into question whether or not the translator/s knew what they were talking about or not, and some might even say they had a demon for doing that. So, verses that aren’t as important as others need to be studied more closely than those that have passed the test repeatedly. Even certain atheist scholars don’t dispute certain translations of verses, and that’s more evidence a verse has been reliably translated.

      So, the King James is the word of God in Old English, and modern ones are his word in Modern English, and using such and such groups preference of synonyms or synonyms grammar. Look at this way if you’re still not sure: if someone translated the ancient Greek into Old English, and did it well enough so a person could be saved, and you, a Christian knew that, and a Greek person used Google Translate to ask you, “Which Bible is God’s word, version X of the Hebrew, version y of the Hebrew, the Greek translation of the Old Testament, or which version of the X Hebrew, the one in which such and verse says burden or the one that says weight or the one that says blessing, or is it the Greek or the Old English?” How would you answer? Of course you wouldn’t say, “The Greek Bibles you can understand aren’t God’s word, nor are the Hebrew variations, not are the ones that don’t include the OT,” no you’d say they are all God’s word in the language they are in (in general). And as for which variation of some verse is right, or whether or not Esther should have been included, God will let us know eventually. I’m sure Jesus will answer such questions during his thousand year reign. It would be very odd if he was silent and just sat there watching and only once every few decades beating someone for disobeying him and then sitting back down again. That wouldn’t fit his personality.

      “I believe it is good to rest on the 7th day of the week.
      The sabbath was made for man. Why do you think God made the sabbath for man?”

      Paul forbade us to argue about holy days as well as drinking alcohol. If you believe it’s right than it’s right for you, if you believe it doesn’t matter, don’t argue about it and don’t offend people over it (not that you do that). That’s what Paul taught. Imagine if it were a tradition to observe the day of the sacrifice of Jepthah’s daughter, or the day Mary washed Yeshuah’s/Jesus’ feet with her tears in some culture or among all Christians, even fasting on that day, and it had been done for 1000 years, and then some Christian, or worse, a great Christian leader of Christians that everyone held as a fine example of a Christian, on worldwide TV, starts eating on one of those days, and even said, “These days don’t matter.” Everyone would be shocked. Some might wonder if he was saved and it would provoke everyone to wonder if Christianity was the true religion and whether or not they themselves were saved. Atheists would have a party over that, especially if Christians started arguing over and splitting up because of it. Everyone but enemies of God would be distressed. It’s similar to Paul saying not to make a big argument out of how short or long a man or woman’s hair is. Because what matters first is salvation and peace, and how long your hair is shouldn’t be something to break a family apart, or what color your shirt is (unless there’s a good chance it’s going to attract trouble, like some gang forbidding anyone to wear red shirts and a church is nearby makes the bad decision to wear red to defy them; that might bring harm on them and the gang members that they are supposed to try to lead to Christ and refute by their good behavior).

      “I believe that observing the sabbath of the land will mean, among other things, less need for fertilizers.”

      I’ve never heard of such a law. There are years-long Sabbaths and I know God said so the land could have rest, but he was talking about that as something he would force on Israel as punishment for their sins. I believe he was using a figure of speech when saying he would give the land rest, because he was saying that in relation to the “work” (sinful things) the Israelites did on it. Remember God used the Sabbath day as an example/symbol/reminder of how we are not to work for our salvation, and that we are going enter into an eternal rest (peace that requires no work on our part to keep and in which we will no longer feel pain nor distress) so it’s the most reasonable interpretation of the years-long-sabbaths as being greater reminders to Israel because of their years-long works of defiance and for not even keeping the one day Sabbath. It’s also God reminding us of his eye-for-an-eye justice, that if you spend years rebelling against him, he will punish you for years or in some great way before yo you die. For example it could be said that David not only lost a son because of his theft of another man’s wife, but that God also caused Solomon to be a failed king because of that. It wasn’t till 200 years later I think that Ezekiel said sons would suffer for their own sins and be blessed for their own goodness.

      “I do not now belong to any organized church”

      Me neither, but I wish I did. Disability and income problems are in the way. It’s more accurate to say that you aren’t a member of a local or national church. Or else you’d be leaving open the possibility that you belong to a disorganized church, and what would that be? Messy Christians? Maybe I’m a church of one then.

      “Have you heard of Richard Wurmbrand? If so, can you comment about him?”

      No. And after spending a long while looking (one of the reasons it took me long to reply) I can’t find anything about his believes other than that we should all respect Scripture and that Jesus was necessary for our salvation. I can’t find anything about his doctrine or theology and he seems somewhat obscure, perhaps because he didn’t come up with anything revolutionary, but stood out because of his severe persecution by people I’m guessing were atheists.

    Hi there mate.
    I just found this link through your youtube channel and i hope you dont mind me visiting.
    Im still on the fence about God, well, I’ve always beleived in something bigger than ourselves but the bible just dosent seem to make a whiole lot of sense to me. Maybe it was my upbringing and maybe not.
    Im not out to judge it though, i just cant relate to alot of what it says.
    It was written so long ago by people who where far less advanced than us in many aspects of life, not just technological but also in the structure of there society.
    We dont have live killing’s in the street, or torture as punishment (at least not in public as far as we know) And people weere alot poorer, i mean the average wage would have probably been equivialent to (and im only guessing here) about $5 dollars a week in todays economic crisis.
    So, as i said, im just hard pressed to see eye to eye with any church when they seem to be telling the world that we should follow the ways of the ancient society!

    • January 10, 2012 at 3:21 AM

      matt, you are mistaken when you say, “It was written so long ago by people who where far less advanced than us in many aspectsess of life…“. The Bible was written over a period of 6000-4000 years, so when you say “by people” you’re lumping in “people” as if they were all in the same situation. That would be like saying, “I’m an Arab, and the Americans just aren’t as advanced us Arabs.” with a 7th century mindset, as if Americans have stayed the same for the past 250 years, as if they were all the same, and as if George Washington and the other ysycolonists just grew out of the ground suddenly when America became independent.

      Your statement shows major ignorance of history, God, and a lack of common sense. 1) The obvious: the Bible claims to be written by God, and if you study it carefully, it can easily be concluded that it was. So for you to pull a switcheroo and say: “it was less advanced people talking” as if they invented it, is something many little Sunday school kids would know not to say because it makes no sense. If God is orchestrating the talking, should you then reply, “But they couldn’t make high quality pornos like we can now and cool X-men movies, and fatten themselves up really fast with Twinkies. It’s not about that, it’s about who made us, why, our weakness, our inability to live in peace forever without God, and the result of disobeying God. Not, “How to make the fastest computers and how to breed the biggest cow.” 2) Notice any pyramids lately? Can you build one? Do you know anyone who can? That’s in your face hint one that you don’t know history. http://s8int.com. Can you even build a Stone Henge? Can you build a wall made of irregular stones fitted together like a jigsaw puzzle? Or how about build a small fortress of stones melted together? All ancient work, not modern. Further, how long has Egypt existed? How about Greece? How long has America comparison existed? Comparing “the modern world” to 6,500 years of time that you don’t have a clue about, or rather ignore obvious things about, is… are you smart enough to fill in the blank? 3) You obviously barely read the Bible and didn’t even study what others say about it, otherwise you wouldn’t be talking about “I can’t relate”, if it were that unrelatable it wouldn’t be the world’s most popular book since 200 AD and almost everywhere you go, even in “primitive” places. 4) So what if you can’t relate to it? Your point? Why do you make judgments before studying and in ignorance? Is that intelligent? That’s like you hearing about some foreign country, not knowing much about it other than that there’s lots of people who “make food and had wars” and then you go and make the silly comment, “Well I can’t relate to that.” So, what’s the significance of your statement other than that you are ignorant? Before you talk, make sure you have a point, otherwise you risk irritating and annoying and angering people with what they will consider a waste of their time due to carelessness on your part, and even the mentally ill do not like to have their time wasted.

      And what about there being no torture and murder in public, on the streets? Again: do you pay attention at all to the news, even your local news? Ever listen to the radio or watch Youtube? You haven’t heard anything about shootings in the streets, gang rapes in public, or just one on one rape, or public executions, electric chairs, countries in turmoil with millions of people being forced out and starved to death, Muslims going around blowing themselves up, their own children, beating people in public, public lashings and stonings, battles, wars, child abuse and neglect in front of neighbors. Hello, wake up matt! You talk as if you are living on some hidden island in a little village with riches galore and that that is all there is of “we” and “the world”. But even islanders in remote islands know the world is chaotic, not some perfect place of peace!

      On top of all that, you miss the most obvious of all: billions of people have been living by the various ancient ways since the ancient ways existed, it hasn’t stopped. Yet you think that because YOU think, that there are some significantly new laws and technology and methods of economy, that there’s been some significant change that makes “ancient ways” obsolete, like, how to make Twinkies, or how to make a longer-lasting shovel. No, those things don’t make obsolete, “Do not bear false testimony” “Do not murder” and the Bible also forbids incest. It’s still illegal to lie in court, still illegal to murder in most countries, and incest is still mostly shunned, but as you haven’t noticed, incredibly(!) the world is getting worse, much worse, because despite the obvious things that I am pointing out to you, it ignores and goes against what is clearly good. Those are ancient laws that everyone knows are still illegal, except people like you, whom Satan heavily blinds (unless you are just joking with me). Even evil know such things are wrong, yet they still lie. So tell me how the ancient way of Christ (not “ways”), who promoted Moses, and who got his laws from angels and God, of the Reformed Christians who obey the Bible are preventing them from getting eternal peace. We of the Reformed Church aren’t practicing the ancient ways so that we can live for eating Twinkies or “advanced economy methods” that you know nothing about, we live to please God because in return he pleases us for doing so. And you are not part of us “we people”. You’re on the outside of our church, glancing in and saying, “Well that’s strange to me!” You are blind to the most extremely obvious things because you don’t have the patience to do anything but glance and then say, “I feel…”

      You also missed this: you said you can’t relate to people who don’t have faith in, don’t trust, don’t obey, God? Matt? Did you even bother reading the first pages of the Bible? Or the last book, which everyone finds to be the most interesting? It’s talking about people like you, all throughout the Bible, so that you can’t relate, is your fault, because you’re glancing and not making a good effort to understand it. How can you have any excuse for not typing into the oh so “advanced” Google, so convenient, “What is the Bible about” and learning? Is that really so hard? What about just asking a Christian in some church or one you know nearby, or a few to get a better understanding? Instead you jumped to conclusions.

      And matt, if you can’t even spell aspects right, which you spelled as “aspectsess” even though our advanced browsers have built in spell checkers, so that you aren’t even take advantage of “our many advances”, what are you boasting about them for? Are you as skilled in writing as an ancient scribe from Babylon or Sumeria? I’m more impressed by just the look of what I’ve seen them write then your small and careless comment made easily with a keyboard that I doubt you invented and doubt you would know how to build. When you say “as advanced as us”, don’t speak of “us” as if you were apart of that and just as wise as a theologian, logician and psychologist like me or some other highly skilled person. Just because you live in the same time as them, doesn’t make you as intelligent, wise or skilled as them. The way you reason is lazy, empty, pointless, confused and arrogant. I hope you take to heart the logic I’ve taught you here, and study and listen carefully, with prayer to the God of the Bible for his wisdom so that you will no longer be trapped by the confusion Satan blankets the world with.

    Well youv’e put me off becoming a christian that’s for sure.
    If all christians are as arrogant and pig headed as you then i think i’ll stay well away.
    I came to this sight with an opinion and a chance to talk to someone who might be able to have a friendly chat with me about religion and the bible and perhaps set me straight in the areas that im wrong in.

    Instead i get drawn and quartered, then burnt at the stake!!

    But you christians know all about burning at the stake dont you!

    I cant beleive you even had such petty things to point out about my spelling! you rerally are a pothetic and arrogant narcissistic person that obviously beleives that you are THE most intelligent person on earth and if we are not up to your standard’s then we are not worth talking politely too!
    You sir, are an common asshole, that is all.

    And as far as reading the bible.
    I have to admit that i havent read much, neither have alot of christians and thats a fact. Its the worlds number 1 best seller, yet least read book of all time, but i dont need a book that says “I am the truth, therefore that is my evidence for being the truth” It’s insulting to “my” level of intelligence, which is clearly not up to your’s so i guess that makes the arguement mute with you dose’t it?

    Another thing! About the judgements i supposedly made!
    People had a different structure to there society back then? people were poorer? These aren’t judgements, they facts, as clear as day, facts of history! (which you obviously know nothing about!)
    If this is a judgement in your eyes,Then i would hate to see how you “judge” your appearance in the mirror every morning!

    Also, after reading some of the comments you left to other people on your site i have to agree with most of them. You seem like a very hate filled, egotistical, self centred,judgemental, arrogant bastard (which would be very un-christian of you)
    I dont care how many people you claim to have shown jesus to, or how many people you claim to have stopped from commiting suicide.
    You clearly have no real people skills and i could not imagine you listening to ANY ONE with thoughts of suicide and keeping yourself from telling them, that they are weak and pothetic and if there not in gods house then they should kill themselves anyway!.
    You really are not suited to the job of “counsillor” Maybe “Cyber bully” or “complete and utter pyshcotic keyboard warrior” is more fitting to your style.
    And what the hell is a logician?
    I thought logician’s only existed in fantasy novels like “The lord of the rings” or “The bible”

    Moron….

    Here’s a tip, go get some counselling yourself, you clearly need it.

    Maybe you should check your own punctuation and spelling before you berate people with theres. After all, your the one that said this,
    “When you say “as advanced as us”, don’t speak of “us” as if you were apart of that and just as wise as a theologian, logician and psychologist like me or some other highly skilled person.”

    I would have expected more from someone as you just described.

    Once again i sign off by reminding you that you are…a moron. A self obsessed, arrogant, people hating, narcissistic moron.

    Goodbye.

    I wish nothing but happiness for you on your holier than thou, self righteous, angry quest for salvation.

    Hi I had a question.You mentioned about “saving many”. I assume you are saved, Praise God! I am a little confused. You are a saved and soulwinning Calvinist?. A true red blooded John Calvin follower does not know they are saved (one of the elect) John Calvin never had a true conversion testimonies.

    Chris

    • February 15, 2012 at 7:21 PM

      I have no idea what you are talking about a Calvinist not being able to know they are saved. That’s nonsensical since Calvin taught the opposite. I don’t know why you would come up with the exact opposite of Reformed doctrine, which is that you can know if you are saved, unlike Catholics and other Christian cults like the Mormons and quasi-cultic Assembly of God, who teach you can only be in the process of being saved till death, and then saved after. Both you and they have provided no explanation as to why you believe what you do. And what do you mean by “red-blooded”? You’re using nonsensical terminology that has nothing to do with Calvin’s doctrine.

      As for if I’m a Calvinist, no, I don’t follow Calvin, otherwise I’d be a cultist; I follow Christ. Calvin just did a good job showing how salvation works to a great degree. Whether Calvin got saved or not I don’t know, but that he understood how salvation worked, is a good sign, being that most Christians don’t understand, which is an indication of spiritual blindness, a state in which people are in before being saved. Calvin did say some things that I thought were suspicious, for example he used very pretentious speech at one time concerning baptism, which combined with other bad actions of his, that seem paranoid and immature, are indicative of narcissism disorder, a permanent evil mindset, which is not possible for a saved Christian to have. But it was so long ago and the documentation scant, so, I’ll just have to wait to see what happens on Judgment Day.

      Also, I have no idea why you said that Calvin had no true c. testimonies, since I’ve not read or heard everything he ever said, and neither have you, so you cannot say, “He never said such and such” if you weren’t around to hear all that he said. Further, why should someone have a recorded testimony? Does the Bible say you must have a recorded testimony and that if no one reads or hears it that that determines whether you are saved or not? It seems you don’t understand how salvation works nor understand what Calvinism is. You should read my page (linked above) on how to be saved and read on Theopedia about Calvin.

    If you want people to stop mistaking you for a calvinist, perhaps you might rewrite the description under your blog title?

    They’re not insulting you (though you clearly take it that way), they’re taking you at your word. You describe yourself as a calvinist so people think you are one.

    • February 16, 2012 at 1:23 PM

      Shannon, where did I say to the last commenter, “You’re insulting me”, liar? I told you to stop harassing me. Once again you’re being a one-sided fault-finder whose sided with someone who I clearly pointed out doesn’t know what he’s talking about. So, you’ve sided with someone who doesn’t know what Calvinism is. And you don’t even explain what is wrong with my title. Where does it say, “I’m a Calvinist”? Stop bothering me already. And who is “they’re”? So you have read every single comment on my journal!? Sweeping generalizations much, and stupid ones? What idiot doesn’t know that fundamentalist Christians aren’t the most insulted group of all Christians, insulted every hour? It happens in your own forum you stupid lying insulting hypocrite. Further moron, you seriously can’t see my reply to Gorgeoustxwoman? And once again: do you seriously think I will publish mere insults? So you cannot imagine, miss “We pagans are the persecuted ones” that I’ve gotten many mere insult comments, and mere babble left as an insult, and that I don’t publish them because that’s all they are? You couldn’t guess that “Miss No One Who Ever Talks To You Insults You and By the Way Your Religion Isn’t Good (It’s Evil)”? Everyone time you talk “Shannon” you show what an evil mentally ill person you are. Your comments are always useless and you always show you’re not paying attention carefully to anything that ANYONE says. Come up with the self-control to leave me alone when I tell you to at least.

    February 18, 2012 at 7:07 AM

    In a message to me on my blog and in an email you asked, ‘Who said I was a Calvinist?”.

    You got very offended (I have the messages still to prove this, and to prove that you claimed to no longer be a Calvinist), and my comment was meant to help you. If you don’t want people to think you follow Calvin, it is simple logic to remove the word from your description.

    I am not only referring to your comments here, but long, rambling messages you left on my blog and in my email that say ‘I am not a Calvinist’.

    Still taking everything as an attack, I see, and still painfully forgetful concerning things you have said here and on other blogs. You claim my comments are useless then write long responses with little quotes about what you think I meant when I said something, rather than addressing what was actually said. It must suck to be you and be ever on the defensive, and so utterly, painfully stupid on top of all that.

    @ Matt:

    The type of interaction you’ve had here is how I know he’s lying when he says he’s lead so many people to christ. No one wants to follow a person who treats them like garbage, and really that’s the only way he has of interacting with people. The boy knows no kindness at all.
    He only put up the claim about his supposed evagelism skills because a year ago I told him my mother has brought people to christ with her excellent people skills, kindness and knowledge of scripture, so now he feels as if it’s a competition. His ‘about’ page changed to include his new claims within a day or two.

    In the event that you see this before he erases it then misrepresents what I said, feel free to get in touch with me. Click on the icon, to get my email. If you’re still interested in christianity and want to talk to someone who can speak to you with love and respect, let me know and I’ll put you in touch with my mom.

  17. March 18, 2012 at 11:55 AM

    This my reply to an ignorant person who used my contact page to leave me comment (now that I think about it I should prevent comments from being left there):

    From “thunderbeast“, submitted on 2012/03/18 at 10:22 AM

    My response:

    “I have an open mind and no party affiliation. I started to read some of your articles and no matter how I try to justify you opinions I am lead to the conclusion you are a right wing radical of the Republican Party.”

    Was all I read. I can tell you’re ignorant and impatient. I’ll explain to you the stupidity of your first statement:

    1) I have an open mind and no party affiliation.

    That makes no point because an open mind is just as bad as a closed mind depending on what you mean: open as in: you’re gullible? As in, you’re willing to believe even what is common sense irrational and evil? You’re simply, ignorant. You don’t analyze for logical errors in your beliefs, and if you do, you have massive blind spots for lack of knowledge on how to reason correctly, and most likely, Satan is causing you to repeatedly forget the obvious.

    2) So what if you are affiliated with a “party”? It’s the same as open/close mindedness. It all depends on if you have right or wrong beliefs. If you’re a part of a good party, great, not “must be biased!” automatically. Rather you’re showing bias just with a statement like that.

    3) “I started to read some of your articles and no matter how I try to justify you opinions”

    4) You “started” but didn’t finish. So you’ve argued without listening properly. If that’s what you meant, that is a major error. The Bible says, “He who argues before listening: that is his shame and folly.”

    5) You tried to justify my “opinions”? Who said they were opinions? You again automatically showed you were biased from the start, and were as biased as a skeptic. You don’t start out (unless you already know the facts somehow) thinking, “This is opinions not facts” rather you have a neutral mindset, an OPEN mindset. So just the opposite of what you stated, you have a CLOSED mind. But again, not bad automatically so long as you’re closed to what you know already to be not rational. It’s also a baby-term so to speak to say open/closed minded, and I’ve explained why, but more explanation: it’s something ignorants often use, especially youths and New Agers, because they don’t realize the errant way in which they use those terms. It would show more wisdom if you said, “I’m willing to listen to what is rational,” now that, is specific and logical. Not, “open to anything! you should be too!” It makes sense though that you would simply say “opinions” because it matches your “be open to anything” mindset, in which anything and everything can be true! Meaning, you don’t believe in absolute truth, in FACTS, or have a poor ability to distinguish between them, hence your “open”, vague, muddy language.
    But, THERE ARE FACTS, there is ABSOLUTE TRUTH. Remember that and accept it and stop mixing up the word “opinion” with “facts”. They are not the same words and mean different things. They are not synonyms in at all, but are in fact used to distinguish truth from possible non-truth.

    6) And now this is my opinion: Due to your forgetfulness concerning those two words, you made what IN THE CONTEXT THAT YOU USED IT, would be nonsensical: trying to justify opinions. Sure, you can justify an opinion if you truly are knowledgeable and wise in whatever you’re trying to justify it in. Like how in the Bible, Paul tried to justify his opinion on when to stay single or marry, but in the way you meant it, with your poor understanding, you meant APART FROM FACTS. Paul was not trying to justify his opinions apart from the facts.

    7) “I am lead to the conclusion you are a right wing radical of the Republican Party.”

    Is that your OPINION or is that A FACT?

    8) Again: who cares? Why would I listen to an ignorant who can’t tell the difference between facts and opinions unless you repeatedly struggle to remind him? And you are VERY stupid, no offense, because you clearly barely read anything I said, otherwise you would have known I’ve got nothing to do with them. Talk about “not even wrong”!

    9) You didn’t read well and are ignorant, so you’re way off. You didn’t bother reading much apparently and clearly to me you know little about religion. You’re a confused and ignorant person who makes assumptions in their impatience and arrogance and as a result, remain ignorant and confused. The Bible says to avoid arguments of ignorance, and you’re not even knowledgeable of basic Sunday School 101 facts. I’m not repeating what’s already all over my journal and in comments, that can be searched for too, and what’s already all over the Internet, and already in libraries and book stores and which you can ask from various pastors around you, of whom there are at least a million, spread out all over the world, usually in the most populated areas.

    10) “On article that made this obvious was you writings on brainwashing.”

    What article? You left this comment on the contact page, open-minded “you writings” genius. You’ve also committed logical fallacies by that statement: Appeal to Obviousness when there is nothing obvious to appeal to. Second: what “writings on brainwashing”?! That is a poor way to state “you’re brainwashed writings” if that’s what you meant, and either indicates English is not your native language, or that you are not only severely lacking in common sense, wisdom and knowledge, but logically then, a stupid person who can’t properly get his point across without having to be questioned on every other thing he says to figure it out! Is that a person who should be trying to teach me, who is the opposite of that?

    And here’s some evidence of your scatter-mindedness: You left this comment on my contact page, not my about me page and not emailing me. Would anyone be wrong to call you “stupid” and disorganized?

    11) You made yet another logical error, Appeal to Extremeness. What’s extremeness have to do with anything? Is heat bad if it’s too hot? Is it immoral and illogical? Yet you talk about “brainwashing” to me!? Look who is talking Mr. That’s Extreme, Extreme Is Bad.

    If you’re carefully read all of my reply you to, can you then figure out what you sound like to me, what conclusion that I am lead to?:

    You’re a New Ager who doesn’t believe in “organized” religion because you don’t know the meanings of words well, and so poorly, that your sentences come out illogically and confusingly and poorly stated, and as such, you have no business teaching anyone about morality, facts, or even opinions. You have little excuse for being ignorant. And should that offend you when you did the same to my works? If you believe in magic karma, “back at you, you get what you put out.” But I believe in the truthful logical Bible: That which a man reaps, he sows. Though God is often merciful, and so does not always allow full punishment to come on a man who does wrong, or right away.

    The rest of your rant is ignored, not even read.

    “Trust in Yahweh with all your heart; don’t lean not on your own understanding.” – King Solomon’s Proverbs

    Update: After reading the first sentence of Covey’s (yes, supposed name) second comment, still on the Contact page, and ignoring the rest, and a third one, starting off with “I have just received several emails for one person who is demanding my attentions,” I can safely say this is a person to ignore.

    • August 26, 2012 at 9:04 PM

      Wow, a real positive comment, impossible. I was even looking for some reason, like your email to not read this, figuring it would be just another “I appreciate that you are a Christian, but you call atheists morons, this isn’t good” or some evil remark.

Evolutionists use failed hypocritical baseless arguments, typical ones are, “show me your God”, “how can you prove design?” (if you’re in a house filled with art you can’t prove design?), “Prove unicorns exist”, “It’s scientifically proven”, “extraordinary claims require extraordinary evidence” (and they often confuse evidence with proof), they ignore what refutes evolution, like giants (there are even photos of giant skeletons), ooparts, sea fossils everywhere including on mountains). What atheists do is come up with baseless claims to substitute for the well proven Bible’s claims, instead of the Flood, it was asteroids, instead of man with dinosaurs, with was dinosaurs first then men, instead of giants, it was just monkeys turning into humans about 5 or 6 feet tall. They also play the “I can’t see anything” game: if they see evidence for Noah’s Ark, they ignore it, if they see photos of giants, there mind blurs over and they go watch an anime cartoon or have fun harassing Christians, they also play the broken record game. They are controlled by Satan, and no evidence is ever good enough for them. One atheist even said she wouldn’t believe in God even if he showed himself to her (which is a stupid assumption) but just shows the Bible true when it says, “The fool has said in his heart, ‘There is no god’”. Fool as maybe you already know, means “very evil person”. They immoral, and deliberately lie to protect their hurt inside, their pride, and for some, to safe guard their business, which is or they feel is reliant on an evolution-faith front. Remember, “The root of all evil is the love of money.” Just as the ancient Greeks and Romans made money off their idols, atheists and heretics pedal their fossil replicas, videos, dinosaur movies, science-actor idols (movie stars/celebs), and porn. They justify porn and other immoral things they produce by making it appear as if God doesn’t care or doesn’t exist and that we’re simply creatures that “evolved”. It’s atheists that need to come up with extraordinary evidence that the massive amount of Biblical archeology and prophecies are wrong, not Christians that need to disprove an absurd claim that billions of years ago by chance, life magically came into existence and turned into humans. Just how did life and could life, “start by chance”? They can’t say, just pretend. That is why they are always making and supporting fake contradictory news articles, like, “Star seen forming from gas” but in the body article it says, “Still waiting for conclusive evidence using a higher resolution telescope” (and even if they did a snap shot of gas doesn’t prove anything, it’s stupid.)

      Apparently you didn’t know that little angry boys and girls who don’t know much about Christians let alone religion start off sentences like that right before they are about to bash a type of Christian in ignorance that they don’t like. Yeah, I deleted whatever came after that. I’m not reading angry baby whiner trash. God bless you Mr. “so Christian” whatever the Hell that meant. Learn before bashing what you don’t understand, listen before arguing. “Avoid arguments of ignorance” the apostle Paul. Here’s a clue for ya: READ, stop skimming and assuming you know everything just because you read a little, stop basing your beliefs based on a few things you read, or building a tall wall of beliefs, even worse, it’ll fall on your head when it gets too big. “Pride comes before a fall” – King Solomon.

      If you’re so wise, why don’t you refute the many things I write, rather than making a little pot shot on my about me page? G, could it have been a logical fallacy called ad hominem, a personal attack? G, so hard to figure out.

    Hi, I just came across your blog. I am a newly Reformed Christian. I am a member of a Grace Community Church church plant. The main GCC is in San Antonio,Texas. Our pastor is Tim Conway. A good website that has great sound teaching from our church is illbehonest.com. Maybe you have heard of it. Well I have bookmarked your blog and I hope to find some good edifying things on here. Nice to meet you. -Kathleen B.

    • December 27, 2013 at 7:35 PM

      No I’ve not heard of it, thanks for the encouragement. Ironically I read one first that came after yours from a supposed Christian that left me an indirectly discouraging message and me replying to her asking why no Christians ever show me support for this massive blog, specially the links above it (at least).

        I’ve found that people get quite upset when they first hear of the doctrines of grace. I mean I don’t know exactly all the reasons people on here are upset with you but I’ve gotten my fair share of people arguing with me about them. I myself got quite angry in the beginning too but after studying my bible God showed me His grace and allowed me to see the truth thus pulling me out of the false church and after being churchless for two yrs providentially put me in a true church from a church plant. Praise God!

      • December 27, 2013 at 8:30 PM

        Well, she seemed to be a Christian, whether saved or not I don’t know. I found her message insulting, because she was inconsiderate about this being a massive blog, and criticizing me as some people do now and then for calling people “names”. I resent when people do that because I get few praises or follows, very few, like never almost, and they do it over old comments and not bothering to notice that some people commenting to me are being plainly malicious or are mentally ill but still an evil person. For example that comment I mentioned at first says,

        “Why do you call people names when they don’t agree with you? It feels like your bitter or angry? I’m a Christian who stumbled onto your site and I am having a hard time taking it seriously because of the way you respond to others. It doesn’t seem loving or done with a gentle spirit. As Christians we are told to love our neighbor and our enemy and to show mercy. And if we need to correct, to be gentle in doing so as to show Christ character of love and patience.
        Proverbs 15:1

        “A soft answer turns away wrath, but a harsh word stirs up anger.”

        Yours
        Sarah”

        Now I FEEL, like “Why won’t other reformed Christians” if there are any that come to my blog, and it seems there must be if I get 390-500 hits a day, follow me, praise me for some article or “like” something or other? Why instead must they find some fault, even if it’s a new comment where I call some malicious atheist or rude person who bashes me with a reply like they read some article with sincere care for truth, but clearly haven’t from their reply? It doesn’t matter if I point out some contradiction on whatever, they bash me anyway as if I’m the stupid one who can’t see. And yet someone pops up and tells me I’m unloving for calling a person what they are for wasting my times with their mean comment. Yes the Bible says a gentle answer can break a bone, but it also says to rebuke a fool. If someone spiritually headbutts me, I may say God bless you if I don’t think a rebuke will do any good, or may be silent so their evil comment, and useless, doesn’t appear in the comments. There’s over 800 comments I haven’t approved. Some are from people who seem to be strongly mentally ill.

      i’m not very good at all, but mountains of wicked people throughout my life tormenting me are in part to blame for my far from perfect behavior. i hope, if I’m going to hell, that God agrees, and so my punishment won’t be severe.

  25. April 3, 2010 at 2:11 PM

    Oh you’re so right Lynn: Unless I agree with you and am happy with whatever you say I’m “full of hate” and not a Christ-follower. Yet you call me “hateful”? You throw malicious punches without a care for truth, and call me hateful, you liar? You’re maliciously lying and harassing idiot, of course I’m angry you moron. Are you really that stupid that you can’t figure out things that even little Christian kids can figure out? You’re how old? I hate sin, I hate evil, obviously then, I will show hatred for it. I’m not a heartless psychopath like you that thinks any evil is “whatever” and “nothing” and “petty”. Yet I’m the one without wisdom or understanding you Marie-worshipers claim? “Wow”.

  26. April 3, 2010 at 2:27 PM

    And Lynn the libeler: Is that all your blind self can really see, is hate? So you can’t see my love for man when I speak out against Marie’s careless vain hatred for man, or all my hatred on my journal for such evil, or the gospels I put up in the right, TWO of them, carefully worked on for years? You are like Satan himself to make such unjust insults, ignoring the good I do merely because you were refuted. How evil and arrogant of you to libel me despite my clear love and hard work to save lives, and when I have done so repeatedly, you careless, hateful hypocritical liar and accuser. What a massive slanderer you are.

    What will it be Lynn, God’s wrath on your for your extreme hate, your extreme childish hate, or turning to him for forgiveness? Which is it, eternal love, or eternal wrath and fire for what you’ve done here and all your life? God is your judge.

    “You are of the Devil as father, and the lusts of your father you will do. He was a murderer from the beginning, and did not abide in the truth because there is no truth in him. When he speaks a lie, he speaks of his own, for he is a liar and the father of it..” – JESUS

  27. April 3, 2010 at 2:34 PM

    The fear of Jehovah is to hate evil; I hate pride, and arrogance, and the evil way, and the wicked mouth. – Proverbs 8:13

    You were too lazy, stupid, and unconcerned about truth, to look up the word “hate” in the Bible. You wasted my time and had me do it for you, WHILE YOU ARE ATTACKING ME FOR SUPPOSEDLY ONLY BEING FULLY OF HATE. What a sicko you are eh? You have so little common sense and conscience, that you have no hatred for that which is evil, as you own qustio reveals. You’ve condemned yourself with your words.

  28. April 3, 2010 at 2:45 PM

    And Lynn the cold hearted idiot: Would you like if you were abused harassed everyday, for your entire life for many years, by a train of 600+ plus evil people, and while you are working as a doctor, which you worked hard to become, fighting off extreme depression and suicide repeatedly for years, if I then came up to you, harassed you, and then asked with pride, “Why are you so full of hate and yet trying to become nurse?” and me acting like me simply asking that makes me the winner? How much do you deserve to be tortured and beaten to death for that? If you’ve mastered the Bible like you act like, then you should know.

  29. April 27, 2010 at 12:30 PM

    To HelpDanielKnightbeNICER, christainhottie@hotmail.com, I forgot to tell you this in my previous reply:

    Matthew 7:2-5: For with the judgment you pronounce you will be judged, and with the measure you use it will you be measured with. Why do you see the speck that is in your brother’s eye, but do not notice the log that is in your own eye? Or how can you say to your brother, ‘Let me take the speck out of your eye,’ (Miss “Help Daniel be NICER” when there is the log in your own eye? You hypocrite, first take the log out of your own eye, and then you will see clearly to take the speck out of your brother’s eye.

    Proverbs 12:1: Whoever loves instruction loves knowledge; but he who hates correction is like a brute animal.

    Did you ever come across that verse, or bother to remember it? How about this one?:

    Leviticus 19:17: You shall not hate your brother in your heart: You shall always rebuke your neighbor, and not allow sin on him.

    Yet you, a false Christian, command me to only agree with and praise you. YOU then are clearly the stupid ranting hateful one, the assumer, the one who hates what your parent, God says, not me.

    And how obvious is this: A child is not to disobey his parents just because he doesn’t know them and a parent isn’t to say to his child, “You can’t judge me because you don’t know me” nor a student when given a bad grade by a teacher he has or an employee to a manager when the manager corrects his work.

    You also forgot this:

    James 1:19-20 Know this, my beloved brothers: let every person be quick to hear, slow to speak, slow to anger; for the anger of man does not produce the righteousness of God.

    All these things you don’t know because you’re a heart-babbler, a feelings-babbler:

    Proverbs 18:2: A fool takes no pleasure in understanding, but only in airing their feelings.

    Proverbs 17:10: A rebuke goes deeper into a man of understanding than a hundred blows into a fool.

    You’re clearly a fool, and that’s my right judgment, and that’s why I haven’t read your second reply either, not one word, and you’re a stubborn false Christian which the Bible commands to ignore after being rebuked twice for it.

    Titus 3:10: Warn a divisive person once, and then warn him a second time. After that, have nothing to do with him.

    You who tries to divide the church, the good from the good: turn to God or be imprisoned in Hell forever.

  30. April 27, 2010 at 12:39 PM

    Oh, I see you’re also a lust-monger, and a massive fake:

    “4. If he asks to pay for dinner…
    Remind him that Jesus also paid a debt He did not owe!”

    WRONG HYPOCRITE: JESUS DID NOT DIE FOR EVERYONE, “WORLD” DOES NOT MEAN “EVERY SINGLE PERSON”, just as we use figures of speech so does God, and when it says that God desires that all men be saved, IT MEANS JUST THAT, “DESIRES” doesn’t say “WILL SAVE” or that it is HIS WILL. YOU ARE A CARELESS READER OF THE BIBLE, and a thoughtless ignorant: If Jesus died forever everyone EVERYONE WOULD LOVE HIM, BIG MASSIVE “DUH”. What part of the Bible was it not clear that if God loves you you will love him back? HIS SPIRIT IS IN YOU YOU EVIL STALKER. SO HOW COULD YOU NOT LOVE GOD BACK? And if Jesus died for everyone then no one would end up in Hell! If God loved everyone no one would end up in Hell because in Hell the Bible says you are eternally separated from God’s love! And are you really so corrupt you’d send your own child to Hell, and husband, and call that “love”? You are evil and lost.

    And about your MERE insults, Jesus said,

    “But whoever says, ‘You fool!’ (Miss “CHICKEN”) is in danger of the fires of Hell.”

    Go away now.

  31. April 27, 2010 at 12:45 PM

    To the “Christain Hottie” (who can’t even spell Christian right) who is ugly on the inside:

    “”What happens if the person I am dating becomes a Christian?
    Praise God!!! That hasn’t happened to me yet”

    Fault-finder, I’ve led over 100 people to Christ, as you were told in my biography, which you read, and did you praise God for that, negative fault-finder, hypocrite? NO. Yet you play Judge over me? Go away fake Christian.

  32. June 4, 2010 at 3:28 PM

    To Satan, aka Gorgeoustxwoman who left a comment here for me: Why would you think, after seeing your email ID, and then the conniving hate-filled word “excuses” that I’d read any further you bitter idiot? I’ve seen that one of your excuses for not reading the word of God with a sincere desire to know if it is his word or to obey it if it was, is because you hate “fundies” and whatever mistakes you feel they make and that you hate God would dare execute justice on criminals, on law-breakers, on rebels, on those who do wrong, who do evil, let alone dare call them what they are, that being those things and more:

    “Do not judge, or you too will be judged: For in the same way you judge others you will be judged and with the measure you use, will you be measured. Why do you look at the speck of sawdust in your brother’s eye and pay no attention to the plank in your own eye? How can you say to your brother, ‘Let me take the speck out of your eye,’ when all the time there is a plank in your own eye? You hypocrite, first take the plank out of your own eye, and then you will see clearly to remove the speck from your brother’s eye.”

    Is that enough proof for you that you have been reading God’s word, the clear honesty and good wisdom? Here’s a little more for your hate-filled, excuse-filled hypocritical mind:

    And you know that whoever hates his brother is a murderer, and no murderer has eternal life in him.” – 1 John

    And why do you self-excuse that plank in your own eye miss “I have no proof for what I’m saying, sue me.”? And you who plagiarizes, who credit-thieves, just as one of your false gods, Darwin, did to Blyth, miss, “The word homosexual isn’t in the Bible, Paul made up a word that didn’t exist!” A liar, quoting another liar, hoping to be believed: that’s you.

    Fail, fail, fail.

  34. February 17, 2012 at 3:26 PM

    This reply is to the false teachings on salvation made by Onesiumus on 2012/02/17 at 12:56 PM on this About me page (his comments are quoted, and I have not published his entire reply since his comment is a rant, but it’s useful to show the first part, because I can use it to refute pseudo-Christian cults like the Mormons, and ones who are Arminians who believe the salvation doctrine of Arminius, their nonsensical teaching about free will, and how those who believe that their free will can save them are confused about how salvation works and how they view God’s power, and how they have no evidence for their claims, and ignore clear teachings of the Bible):

    “Of course deliverance or salvation is conditional until the end, just like the love of Yahweh is conditional, everything is conditional if you want to be rational.
    Only when we have finished our course and resisted firm until the end is our deliverance complete.
    While we living without sin only then are we secure, but that does not dismiss temptation and free will to choose from now until our last breath which can take us right out of Spirit and life and straight into sin and death under the law of sin and death.”

    You first statement is grammatically nonsensical, specifically this part is nonsense: “everything is conditional if you want to be rational.” Instead of thinking of how to sound smart, think of how to make sense. Fancy speech doesn’t make you wise, making sense and saying useful things and learning what is wise does.

    “Only when we have finished our course and resisted firm until the end is our deliverance complete.”

    That is a mere claim without evidence and which is denying what the Bible says, plainly says, “For God so loved the world, that he gave his only Son, that whoever believes in him should not perish but have eternal life.. NOT: “they can perish anyways and will only get everlasting life if they keep believing or re-believe right when they die.” How is it you don’t know the most popular verse in the Bible, and on salvation? Yet you think you know how salvation works, let alone the Bible? Did you bother reading my salvation page, or is this how you live your life: repeating over and over without having any other thoughts or learning anything new? Is Satan blinding you or what? “Truly, truly, I say to you, whoever believes has eternal life. … Whoever feeds on my flesh and drinks my blood has eternal life, and I will raise him up on the last day.” Not, “If you lose faith you’re no longer being saved and won’t get eternal life.” “In him you also, when you heard the word of truth, the gospel of your salvation, and believed in him, were sealed with the promised Holy Spirit … And do not grieve the Holy Spirit of God, by whom you were sealed for the day of redemption.” Not, “The Holy Spirit abandons you every time you grieve him/sin and when he abandons you you’re no longer on your way to Heaven/being saved and won’t get eternal life after you die, because God’s love is conditional and his love doesn’t save; it’s your free will that saves.” Can you now feel the sick heresy of such teachings? Do you shrink back with disgust at the blasphemy of such claims now? Doesn’t it shock you to hear and think, “God’s love doesn’t save; the Holy Spirit abandons his children whom he loves, whom God promised to save, the sins of whom were completely suffered for and paid for by God’s perfect son, Yeshuah, and who also did so by shedding his blood for and physically dying for, and by doing so sacrificed himself for”?! It is evil blasphemy to say such a thing, to say God’s love doesn’t save, the Spirit abandons the children he loves who Christ severely suffered and died for, at the drop of a pin, and will repeatedly abandon you like some crazy, petty, easily-angered parent. How is that, “God is love” for those he saved? How is that fulfilling his promise to Abraham to save children for him (to enjoy)? God would have had to have said, “I can’t promise you who will be saved, not Jacob (“who I have loved”) or Esau (“who I have hated”), it’s going to be random, but I can predict using mathematical calculations on how many people will be saved and when. No, “I will have mercy on whom I will have mercy,” not, “Chance and man’s free will will determine who is saved.” God doesn’t roll dice to decide what to do, he has “predestined” all things.

    “While we living without sin”

    Is English your first language?

    “only then are we secure,”

    And no one can live without sin, so your point is refuted. You just pointed out your own false plan of salvation, but you repeatedly forget things like that because Satan is blinding you.

    “but that does not dismiss temptation and free will to choose from now until our last breath”

    You don’t understand what role free will plays and don’t realize you’re using a nonsensical term “free will”. There is no “free will” and the Bible doesn’t say we have one, but just the opposite, “SLAVES TO SIN”. Not “can make any mental choice you decide to make.” God even says he will force certain people to be drunk with sin, not “You can successfully resist my will.” If can defeat God’s will than God would be a liar, not be able to make genuine promises, and not be able to give anyone ETERNAL LIFE. You in your irrational unreasonable thinking think there is something magical about dying and being in Heaven, does the Bible teach that magic saves us? No, it teaches that GOD SAVES US, THAT HE IS OUR SALVATION, not “…YOUR FREE WILL.” You’re making things up, believing in magic and making US TO BE OUR OWN SAVIORS.

    “which can take us right out of Spirit and life and straight into sin and death under the law of sin and death.”

    More narcissistic speech. Like I said, stop talking fancy, because you’re confusing yourself by trying to sound wise when you aren’t. Be humble and use simple speech that both you and everyone else can understand. There is no good reason to talk like that. And it is very hypocritical for you to refer to the law of sin and death when the passage that is in SAYS THAT THE LAW LEADS TO DEATH AND THAT WHEN SAVED WE ARE NO LONGER UNDER THE LAW. You did not read the Bible carefully and forget what it says. Stop taking it out of context and twisting verses and imagining things in it that aren’t there.

    Besides also being wrong about how sinful people can be saved, like that it is possible for them to save themselves by some ability in them to do good works/deeds, obeying God’s laws, a false teaching which goes along with the lie that Jews were under a separate salvation method in which they could get to Heaven simply by obeying the “Law of Moses”, people like you who also teach the lie that you can turn to God whenever you feel like to be saved and be saved, so long as you are sincere, and that you can be sincere whenever you feel like it right up to just before the time when you die. But the Bible instead teaches that you have a limited time while alive after hearing verses to do with salvation and how to live righteously:


    Pro 29:1 He who repeatedly rejects correction will be suddenly destroyed without a remedy [to heal him]. – My translation

    Heb 6:4 For it is impossible for those once having been enlightened, and having tasted of the heavenly gift, and becoming sharers of the Holy Spirit, and tasting the good Word of God, and the works of power of a coming age, and having fallen away, it is impossible for them again to renew to repentance, crucifying again for themselves the Son of God – LITV

    Mar 4:3 Listen! Behold, the sower went out to sow. And as he sowed, it happened that one indeed fell by the wayside; and the birds of the heaven came and devoured it. And another fell on the stony place where it did not have much earth. And it sprang up at once, due to not having deepness of earth. And the sun rising, it was scorched. And through not having root, it was dried out. And another fell into the thorn-bushes, and the thorn-bushes grew up and choked it; and it did not yield fruit. And another fell into the good ground, and yielded fruit, going up and increasing; and one bore thirty, and one sixty, and one a hundredfold. And He said to them, The one having ears to hear, let him hear. And when He was alone, those around Him, with the Twelve, asked Him as to the parable. And He said to them, To you it has been given to know the mystery of the kingdom of God. But to these, those outside, all things are being given in parables, that, “Seeing they may see and not perceive; and hearing they may hear, and not understand, lest they should convert, and their sins be forgiven them.” (Isa. 6:9, 10) And He said to them, Do you not know this parable? And how will you know all parables? The sower sows the Word. And these are those by the wayside where the Word is sown. And when they hear, Satan comes at once and takes away the Word having been sown in their hearts. And likewise, these are the ones having been sown on the rocky places, who, when they hear the Word, they immediately receive it with joy, yet they have no root in themselves, but are temporary. Then trouble or persecution having occurred through the Word, immediately they are offended. These are those being sown into the thorn bushes, those hearing the Word, and the cares of this age, and the deceitfulness of riches, and the lusts about other things entering in, they choke the Word, and it becomes unfruitful. And these are those being sown on the good ground, who hear and welcome the Word and bring forth fruit, one thirty, and one sixty, and one a hundredfold. – LITV

    Rom 3:19 Now we know that whatever the law says it speaks to those who are under the law, so that every mouth may be stopped, and the whole world may be held accountable to God. For by works of the law no human being will be justified in his sight, since through the law comes knowledge of sin. But now the righteousness of God has been manifested apart from the law, although the Law and the Prophets bear witness to it–the righteousness of God through faith in Jesus Christ for all who believe. For there is no distinction: for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God, and are justified by his grace as a gift, through the redemption that is in Christ Jesus, whom God put forward as a propitiation by his blood, to be received by faith. This was to show God’s righteousness, because in his divine forbearance he had passed over former sins. This was done to show his righteousness at the present time, [to show himself to] be just and as the one who is the justifier of the one who has faith in Jesus. Then what becomes of our boasting? It is excluded. By what kind of law? By a law of works? No, but by the law of faith. For we hold that one is justified by faith apart from works of the law. [And is he] the God the God of Jews only? [Is he] not the God of Gentiles also? Yes, of Gentiles also, since God is one–who will justify the circumcised by faith and the uncircumcised through faith. Rom 3:31 Do we then overthrow the law by this faith? By no means! On the contrary, we uphold the law. … Rom 6:18 having been set free from sin, have become slaves of righteousness. Rom 8:26 Likewise the Spirit helps us in our weakness. For we do not know what to pray for as we ought, but the Spirit himself intercedes for us with groanings too deep for words. And he who searches hearts knows what is the mind of the Spirit, because the Spirit intercedes for the saints according to the will of God. And we know that for those who love God all things work together for good, for those who are called according to his purpose. For those whom he foreknew he also predestined to be conformed to the image of his Son, in order that he might be the firstborn among many brothers. And those whom he predestined he also called, and those whom he called he also justified, and those whom he justified he also glorified. What then shall we say to these things? If God is for us, who can be against us? He who did not spare his own Son but gave him up for us all, how will he not also with him graciously give us all things? Who shall bring any charge against God’s elect? It is God who justifies. Who is to condemn? Christ Jesus is the one who died–more than that, who was raised–who is at the right hand of God, who indeed is interceding for us. Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? Shall tribulation, or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or danger, or sword? As it is written, “For your sake we are being killed all the day long; we are regarded as sheep to be slaughtered.” No, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him who loved us. For I am sure that neither death nor life, nor angels nor rulers, nor things present nor things to come, nor powers, nor height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God in Christ Jesus our Lord. Rom 9:13 As it is written, “Jacob I loved, but Esau I hated.” What shall we say then? Is there injustice on God’s part? By no means! For he says to Moses, “I will have mercy on whom I have mercy, and I will have compassion on whom I have compassion.” So then it depends not on human will or exertion, but on God, who has mercy. For the Scripture says to Pharaoh, “For this very purpose I have raised you up, that I might show my power in you, and that my name might be proclaimed in all the earth.” So then he has mercy on whomever he wills, and he hardens whomever he wills. You will say to me then, “Why does he still find fault? For who can resist his will?” But who are you, O man, to answer back to God? Will what is molded say to its molder, “Why have you made me like this?” – ESV with my translations in brackets

    Eph 2:8 For by grace you have been saved through faith. And this is not your own doing; it is the gift of God, not a result of works, so that no one may boast. For we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand, that we should walk in them. – ESV

    Gal 2:21 I do not set aside the grace of God, for if righteousness comes through the law, then Christ died for nothing. Gal 3:1 You foolish Galatians! Who put you under a spell? Was not Jesus Christ clearly portrayed as crucified before your very eyes? I want to learn only one thing from you: Did you receive the Spirit by doing the works of the law or by believing what you heard? Are you so foolish? Having started out with the Spirit, are you now ending up with the flesh? Did you suffer so much for nothing? (If it really was for nothing!) Does God supply you with the Spirit and work miracles among you because you do the works of the law or because you believe what you heard? In the same way, Abraham “believed God, and it was credited to him as righteousness.” You see, then, that those who have faith are Abraham’s real descendants. Because the Scripture saw ahead of time that God would justify the gentiles by faith, it announced the gospel to Abraham beforehand when it said, “Through you all nations will be blessed.” Therefore, those who believe are blessed together with Abraham, the one who believed. Certainly all who depend on the works of the law are under a curse. For it is written, “A curse on everyone who does not obey everything that is written in the book of the law!” Now it is obvious that no one is justified in the sight of God by the law, because “The righteous will live by faith.” But the law has nothing to do with faith. Instead, “The person who keeps the commandments will have life in them.” Christ redeemed us from the curse of the law by becoming a curse for us. For it is written, “A curse on everyone who is hung on a tree!” This happened in order that the blessing promised to Abraham would come to the gentiles through Christ Jesus, so that we might receive the promised Spirit through faith. … Gal 3:8 And the Scripture, [which] fortold that God would justify the Gentiles by faith, announced the gospel beforehand to Abraham, saying, “In you shall all the nations be blessed.” … Gal 3:21 if [there was] a law [that] had been given that could give us life, then certainly righteousness would come through the law. But the Scripture has put everything under the power of sin, so that what was promised by the faithfulness of Christ might be given to those who believe. Now before this faith came, we were held in custody and carefully guarded under the law in preparation for the faith that was to be revealed. And so the law was our guardian until Christ came, so that we might be justified by faith. But now that this faith has come, we are no longer under the control of a guardian. For all of you are God’s children through faith in Christ Jesus. – ESV

    Joh 8:34 Truly, truly, I say to you, everyone who commits sin is a slave to sin. – ESV

    Tit 3:3 For we ourselves were once foolish, disobedient, led astray, slaves to various passions and pleasures, passing our days in malice and envy, hated by others and hating one another. – ESV

    Act 13:39 and by him everyone who believes is freed from everything from which you could not be freed by the law of Moses. Beware, therefore, lest what is said in the Prophets should come about: “‘Look, you scoffers, be astounded and perish; for I am doing a work in your days, a work that you will not believe, even if one tells it to you.’”

    Tit 3:4 But when the goodness and loving kindness of God our Savior appeared, he saved us, not because of works done by us in righteousness, but according to his own mercy, by the washing of regeneration and renewal of the Holy Spirit, whom he poured out on us richly through Jesus Christ our Savior, so that being justified by his grace we might become heirs according to the hope of eternal life. – ESV

    1Co 1:4 I give thanks to my God always for you because of the grace of God that was given you in Christ Jesus, that in every way you were enriched in him in all speech and all knowledge–even as the testimony about Christ was confirmed among you–so that you are not lacking in any spiritual gift, as you wait for the revealing of our Lord Jesus Christ, who will sustain you to the end, guiltless in the day of our Lord Jesus Christ. God is faithful, by whom you were called into the fellowship of his Son, Jesus Christ our Lord. I appeal to you, brothers, by the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, that all of you agree, and that there be no divisions among you, but that you be united in the same mind and the same judgment. For it has been reported to me by Chloe’s people that there is quarreling among you, my brothers. What I mean is that each one of you says, “I follow Paul,” or “I follow Apollos,” or “I follow Cephas,” or “I follow Christ.” Is Christ divided? Was Paul crucified for you? Or were you baptized in the name of Paul? I thank God that I baptized none of you except Crispus and Gaius, – ESV

    1 Jn 5:11 And this is the testimony, that God gave us eternal life, and this life is in his Son. – ESV

    2 Ti 2:11 The saying is trustworthy, for: If we have died with him, we will also live with him; if we endure, we will also reign with him; if we deny him, he also will deny us; if we are faithless, he remains faithful– for he cannot deny himself. Remind them of these things, and charge them before God not to quarrel about words, which does no good, but only ruins the hearers. – ESV

    So, that is what God’s word teaches which you have ignored and twisted. You and those who teach your twisted version of salvation and argue about the wording of the Bible concerning how salvation works are wrecking and ruining the church and those who come to God! Stop pitting verse against verse, verses you don’t understand and take out of context. Accept what is plain and clear first, then ask why other verses seem to say the opposite IN YOUR VIEW, not stating, “This here says you can’t get to Heaven unless you stay faithful to the end and this one says we’re saved by works, and this one says the saved can deny God and God will deny them.” There are no such verses.

    How is it you and every other false Christian does not see these verses or doesn’t understand them or repeatedly forgets them. Or when someone shows them to you you respond with, “Faith without works is dead,” without any thought rather than, “These verses must be true therefore I must have misunderstood other verses” like “faith without works is dead”? If you don’t notice or deny all those verses, how then can you think you know what you are saying when quoting that verse or a few others? Shouldn’t you stop and think that you may have the Bible in error and are confused, rather than pitting verses against each other and making the Bible a book of error and confusion but being so oblivious and careless you don’t even notice you’re doing that or are with hatred satisfied to make the Bible out to be one of contradictions in which you arbitrarily choose to listen to some verses and not others and are therefore contentiously arguing when you merely repeat statements and don’t reason with those you repeat to?

    The rest of your comment is ignored because you are ranting, as I’ve shown with this reply.

    If you want to learn more about what the Bible says about free will and my teachings about it, copy and paste that phrase into the search engine that is in my blog (not the other one on top that searches all of WordPress).

    “Wow, you are more stupid than I thought!” is the first sentence of a cult member who calls himself Onesimus (who is of the divisive Disciples of Christ cult)(2)(3) to my first reply. This shows what a stubborn, hateful and condemned person this is, and it’s an obvious “ad hominem” fallacy to make a personal attack in response to Scriptures which correct false doctrine. What comes after his response I don’t know, but he is clearly a stupid person, so stupid as to think that someone of my amount of learning (which I just demonstrated for him clearly and which was already visible on my About Me page) and who spends mys time helping the suicidal, would waste anymore time on a person who responds with a that for a first sentence. Scripture also commands Christians to “avoid arguments of ignorance,” and his arguments are clearly if not out of ignorance, are clearly contentious.

    Love is patient and kind; love does not envy or boast; it is not arrogant or rude. It does not insist on its own way; it is not irritable or resentful; it does not rejoice at wrongdoing, but rejoices with the truth.” – 1 Cor 13:4

    “The simple believe anything, but the prudent gives thought to his steps.” – Pro 14:15

    “Whoever loves discipline loves knowledge, but he who hates reproof is stupid.” – Pro 12:1

    “The proud and arrogant man–”Mocker” is his name; he behaves with overweening pride.” – Pro 21:24

    “For everyone who exalts himself will be humbled, but the one who humbles himself will be exalted.” – Luke 18:14

    “If one gives an answer before he hears (as in “understands”), that is folly and shameful.” – Pro 18:13. (my translation)

    “There is severe discipline for him who forsakes the way; whoever hates reproof will die.” – Pro 15:10

    “Be not quick in your spirit to become angry, for anger lodges in the bosom of fools.” – Ecc 7:9

    “Know this, my beloved brothers: let every person be quick to hear, slow to speak, slow to anger; for the anger of man does not produce the righteousness of God.” – James 1:19-20

    I say to you that whoever is angry with his brother without a cause will be in danger of the judgment: and whoever will say to his brother, “Raca,” will be in danger of the council. But whoever says, “You fool,” will be in danger of Hell fire.” – Mat 5:22

    “Whoever hates his brother is a murderer: and you know that no murderer has eternal life abiding in him.” – 1 John 3:15

    Clearly, an easily angered, easily annoyed, correction-resenting, hateful, hypocrite and contentious mocker like yourself does not have eternal life, you even said so yourself.

    Nothing more will be read from this pretentiously named, pretentious-talking, evil and arrogant person, because God commands it: “foolish and unlearned questions avoid, knowing that they breed strifes.” – 2 Ti 2:23, A man that is a heretic after the first and second admonition reject, knowing that such a person is warped and sinful; he is self-condemned. – Titus 3:10-11

    “Pride goes before destruction, and a haughty spirit before a fall.” – Pro 16:18

    Now stop harassing me and stop leaving replies and do not leave comments.

    On 2012/05/08 at 6:53 P.M., “Eva”, at “yoyomaev…hotmail.com”, said, (I replied in her comments),

    “You know, considering your tendency (from your previous responses to other posters) to attack and browbeat people into agreeing with you, [you've made an ad hominem attack which is also a Red Herring Fallacy, and the ad hominem is most definitely one because you don't back it up with evidence or relevance despite there being a second half of your sentence]“. There is also no evidence to back it up, you’ve simply made a claim. You might as well have said, “You tend to beat your wife.” You also committed another fallacy by saying, “You know” without evidence, which is circular reasoning: How do you know that I know what you claim I know? It’s also a rare thing to say “You know” in writing being that it’s apparently a known bad habit of nervous speech and a way of filling in what would otherwise be awkward silence (at least in the mind of the person saying that phrase) till you complete a thought, meaning you were either being pretentious and/or assuming, or didn’t even know what you were going to say and were biased, going for an attack without any logic reason to.

    “I have to assume that you have some sort of instability with your religion.” This combined with the first half of your statement is a non sequitur. On top of that, it’s the fallacy of assumption (and that fallacy is among the worst and one of the reasons for all other fallacies). On top of that, the grammar in the second half makes no sense, and so makes no logical point (circular reasoning then too). That’s a lot of fallacies.

    No doubt the rest of your comment is also not worth reading and would be a waste of time since you’re logic is insane. You may want to look into whether or not you have narcissism disorder or schizophrenia. There’s no way I’m going to read the rest of what is mostly likely going to be a lot of rambling packed with fallacies, therefore, nonsense.
