    Your proof for such flatfooted statements is…..?

    Sharing one’s faith, or (gasp!!) making public declaration of the same is not “shoving one’s faith” on another. It is the recipient of such free speech that is offended by it and one has to wonder why, or what is deep in that person’s psyche that may be resonating with a declaration of said faith that is generating the intense negative reaction one sees in too many atheists.

    A person’s ‘true’ faith will be exhibited in how he lives when he thinks no one is watching. “As a man thinketh in his heart, so is he” or so said the guy who wrote down the Proverbs. Jesus reiterated this when He said, “out of the abundance of the heart the mouth speaks.”

    Biblically speaking, character assassination is a form of murder. There were 900+/- files that went missing when they left office in 2001. When we see otherwise reputable people such as Chief Justice Roberts do an about face when dealing with decisions that are near and dear to the Clintons, it makes one wonder what IS in those files. Blackmail is such a dirty word…

    Can you point to one (1) place in American history where church and state were the same entity?

    I know people who have gone over to help the Chinese Christians, but they know better than to blab it all over the internet. The underground church movement is alive and well in China and estimates there to be in excess of 200 million believers in China that worship in houses and other places the Chinese government cannot find them. So it will be here some day soon.

    Do you work at being obtuse or do you come by it naturally?

    Given that the first guy to build a city (Cain) was also the first politician and the first murderer, it does tend to give one pause as to the attractiveness of city dwelling…

    Indeed? And what pray tell comprises a Christian?

    For someone who denies the existence of God and the devil, you seem to know a lot about both of them. How is that? You must have some proof hidden away in your little closet that you aren’t telling the rest of us? Spill atheist-boy; we are waiting!

    There you go again, calling anyone who varies from your own narrowly defined view of Christianity, hateful. “Welcome to your worst nightmare” someone said… b.t.w. what IS the color of the sky in your little world?

    Proverbs 6:16-19:
    These six things doth the Lord hate: yea seven are an abomination to Him: a proud look, a lying tongue, and hands that shed innocent blood. An heart that deviseth wicked imaginations, feet that be swift in running to mischief, a false witness that speaketh lies and he that soweth discord among brethren.”
    Recognize anyone in government? Sure you do, but especially those who are disciples of Saul Alinsky.

    The more I see the President in his role of ‘community organizer’ (not sure if that is in the Constitutionally given job description for president..), the more I have come to believe that “community organizing” is a euphemism for “inciting to riot”; a felony offense the last time I checked.

    Thanks for the laugh! Someone will have a nightmare, but it won’t be me..

    I’m sure many have tried to set your skewed view of the whys and hows of the Bible ad nauseam, ad infinitum. How many times has someone explained to you that ‘thou shalt not kill’ (KJV lingo) is really ‘thou shalt not commit murder’? Did God “murder” all the people prior to the Flood, except for Noah and his family? Why did Noah give testimony of what was coming for 120 years prior to the rain falling? I don’t regard that as sneaking up on humanity and pole-axing them out of nowhere. Similar today: you have heard of Jesus Christ and what He came to accomplish. The issue is not God ‘murdering’ but mankind in his pride and arrogance, continuing to ignore or dismiss the warning signals. “as in the days of Noah, so shall the coming of the Son of Man be”. There are plenty of warning signals. It is not God’s fault that people ignore Him or even deny His existence.
    And as for what is good and what is evil, that has been the crux of mankind’s problem in that area ever since in the Garden of Eden, mankind decided they didn’t need God to tell them what was good and what was evil. Again, not God’s fault. If any ‘fault’ in God exists, I would call it “longsuffering”. It has been many thousands of years that He has put up with mankind thumbing their collective noses at His ways; how much longer do you think He is willing to put up with “there is no God; I don’t need the Bible to tell me what to do, etc, etc”.?

    Blink:
    Context is always good to consider, but with Biblical words (in this case “nabal” translated ‘fool’) one must also consider how it is rendered where it is used elsewhere. It is literally ‘empty person’, but is translated, ‘fool, foolish, foolish man, foolish woman’ and lastly, ‘vile person’. If you want, immoral person also works. At any rate, if a person does say in the depths of his being (Biblically, the ‘heart’) there is no God, then I must conclude you are in agreement. Unless…… of course you are going to attempt to redefine “immoral” according to Blink’s Slightly Skewed Guide to What the Bible Really Means? Thanks for your response!

    What is your purpose in life? I certainly hope it extends beyond criticizing any and all who do not hold your own narrow beliefs.

    You are aware that the dimensions given for the ark in Genesis are the ideal ones for maximum stability? The USN ship builders use virtually the same ratios, even if they do not build something that large in all their big vessels. Mind you the ark is the first recorded sea faring vessel built by anyone. I wonder how ol’ Noah knew that, given that he was just a ‘bronze age’ savage….
