Well Rhonda, this antagonistic rat bastard realizes that not everyone is blessed with your blind faith an thus may go through a process of questioning before they arrive at a conclusion.
In this State of fundamentalists, evangelicals, etc. i am well aware of what unquestioning faith can mean. All too frequently it means trying to force others to follow someone else's beliefs. In general they are fearful, unhappy, frustrated lot of believers buried in guilt and the need to punish or be punished.
Oh, man.....have you and I ever had much of a tangle of disagreement? no...I may not have believed as you do but I 'read' you and let you have your voice without harassment. If you took this to mean you then you are wrong.
It is a good thing Ghoti got the hell off this board
Yup...aren't I cruel. The guy always reiterated that Jesus was just a prophet and a man...nothing more. IT IS BLASPHEMY he spoke. The auDASITY of you, of others who came along after his many posts to say he was the voice of reason, the man of such intelligence and knowledge of the Bible because (as he would tell us) : he had read the Bible many times and the auDASITY of the idiot Rob (sodapop) to come on this board and follow his posts or anyone's mention of a religious wonder with, "Well, Ghoti is the one you should talk to because he knows the Bible."
Then the AUDACITY of Ghoti to tell me to stop with what I feel in my heart (not logical, not worldly, not Book-Bible inside-out knowledge of...just what I know of my beliefs) so that he could go on being praised by the idiots of the board who don't really give a shit about any of it anyway except to boost his idiot ego.....
Hell, I would think my post that made you comment further, PaulI would have been more clear to you (although, i am not nearly as good at getting my point across verbally..in words here, as you all):
Now, an antagonistic rat-bastard of a reject who is so very full of themselves and self-centered enough to think that they should ignore or question the fact of Jesus being God BECAUSE of hate or some twisted concept of what it is to be gullible or naive or easily persuaded by the masses or ...boy, I could go on forever with these twisted concepts..but, you understand that questioning is unbelievable.
To explain (or try): when someone comes to a religion forum to tell others that they are gullible, simple of mind like a child, easily persuaded by the masses and that it takes a (ghoti quote) 'strong person to reject religion'............that is twisted and mean and blaspheous to put Jesus in the frame of mind of 'just a man'...........and then SAY THAT THEY believe in a creator.
Ghoti just irks me...you all just erk me.........WHEN one says they are a Christian and a believer and they ...just like bumps on a log...NEVER speak up to put that one in his place.
Glad he finally found the light....
He's not alone....there's other antagonistic rat bastards who fit that comment I made. I was mainly thinking of him, though.
