I don't play footsie ever. That is a game and I play for keeps with the lord.
What you talk about is wrong, Mr. "occupant". The bible is what it says it is. The way, the truth, and the light. The bible is not to be pondered - it is to be taken literally.
Just because you like to "intellectualize" about the bible doesn't mean that people like me aren't always going to be out in the world. I am here to say that the bible is to be taken literally. If I want to create violence in defense of my religion then God will surely look upon me with great pride. I don't need to think about the bible. The bible says what it is. It is the truth. So, you can take your academic garbage and go "tell it on the mountain" to someone else.
I am here to say that Jesus loves me,yes he does, and I know this because the bible tells me so. I can do no wrong in the lords eye as long as I have faith in the literally truth of the bible.
I am out there, and my numbers are growing. Academics and intellectuals beware!!
See ya around like a doughnut
Scott, this is not working very well.
1) You misrepresent someone's point of view and then debate with the phantom you created.
2) You aren't talking with the folks you're supposedly trying to convince.
3) You're making some of your allies mad.
4) You identify the weak point of the other side, and then just beat it to death. That's okay in debate but not scientific debate...you're not getting at any truth beyond the point you made the first time.
Those habits are as much of a threat to academics and intellectuals as any other form of ignorance.
If you don't believe it, fine. Belief is not the point. What I've just addressed is not about belief. It's about pulling your head out of your Language Removed and thinking instead of spewing cliche's.
