Actually, you can.
Your posts on the Islam-related threads offer pretty much zero value. Most of them one-liners or loaded questions.
I really don’t know if it’s intellectual laziness, or just plain stupidity.
the recent posts here that overwhelmingly show that Islam is rife with serious problems must really have him frustrated…
Not really. People will believe what they want to believe. Nothing I can do about it.
But if you seriously think this crime is a reflection on Islam, you’re as clueless as the idiots who were spewing anti-Christian hate when this happened not a few months back.
Take heart there Lix, Islam isn’t ALL bad;
Do you seriously believe beheading your wife is a pillar of the religion?
it just needs a serious housecleaning.
Grab your broom and get started!
What “needs a serious housecleaning”, is not the religion. In this particular case, it’s the brain of this blood-thirsty maniac.
Hey the preacher was repentant and accepted Christ as his saviour he is going to heaven.[/quote]
Jesus actually addresses this brand of oft-repeated self righteous snark that we so frequently hear from you:
[quote] Luke 18: 9To some who were confident of their own righteousness and looked down on everybody else, Jesus told this parable: 10"Two men went up to the temple to pray, one a Pharisee and the other a tax collector. 11The Pharisee stood up and prayed about himself:
‘God, I thank you that I am not like other men?robbers, evildoers, adulterers?or even like this tax collector. 12I fast twice a week and give a tenth of all I get.’
13"But the tax collector stood at a distance. He would not even look up to heaven, but beat his breast and said, ‘God, have mercy on me, a sinner.’
14"I tell you that this man, rather than the other, went home justified before God. For everyone who exalts himself will be humbled, and he who humbles himself will be exalted."[/quote]
The Christian ethic doesn’t separate sinful thoughts from sinful actions. If you’ve hated your neighbor in your heart, you’re a murderer. If you’ve looked at a woman lustfully whose not your wife, you’re an adulterer.
Maybe you really are “like other men” then, huh? Maybe we all are. That’s pretty much the point. Anyways, all of those who were “confident in their own righteousness” are now burning in hell, with the full realization that they weren’t ever righteous at all, just slightly more righteous than other men in some respects but worse in others.
God doesn’t care that you were “not like other men.” To compare yourself to other men is to compare crap to crap. Crap compared to crap is still crap. God cares that you’ve kept the moral law perfectly. And only Jesus did. Jesus was “not like other men.”
