I make a point of not talking to Connie and abetting his/her fanaticism, but she sez, "Never once wrote a word on any of that. " about Paul taking the Corinthian theology to task." How sad her biblical history is so shallow she can't appreciate who Paul was talking to in Corinthians as she quotes his words. Hopefully it gives impressionable minds some encouragement to pause and wonder where she is coming from as they seek understanding.
I could have been certain Connie was reading from CORINTHians....
Wonder if Connie ever read Romans 10:9? Can't find a lot of qualifying conditions on who gets to heaven, certainly none of her rambling on Paul 's tackling Greek mythology and it's worship practices.
Gauss, Connie can't understand the implication of your question on who is saved or not concerning Judaism and Christianity, she/he is too focused on being repulsed by a few PARTICULAR sins rather than the scope of forgiveness and the question is too frightening for him/ her to deal with (except in large font caps, as if yelling loud enough will blind her ears to the truth.)
Connie should read john 3:16
Connie it's a rare hen, nothing about her surprises me. I'm waiting to see how she explains the relationship of Israel now with Hebrews then.
Limerick I think the point is both are dying by the sword
Connie conflates the modern secular state of Israel with the Biblical nation of Israel, she is again choosing a very selective reading of scripture
Also, z-bister, there is no live and let live in the extremist Christian mind, as we see so evidently in these discussions.
Z-babel, your hyperbole is too much. You espouse the same argument terrorists use to justify attacking democracies, the people responsible for the action of a democratic republic are the people, therefore, they are fair game.
I doubt seriously you really believe that, but to say Palestinians elected Hamas therefore all Palestinians agree with the "death to Israel" claim and deserve to be attacked by Israel says you do - otherwise you are a hypocrite.
