  1. His cruelty is one of the main reasons his supporters elected him. Christians are already paying a very steep price for abandoning their values to support him, and as an American his cult of personality troubles me. I didn't realize the country has so many fascists.
  2. I am not trying to make you feel bad or tell you what to do. I'm trying to impress on you the futility of constantly trying to argue people into being reasonable. I have told you before that arguing with right wing people only makes them believe they are correct and more entrenched in their pernicious views. It not only doesn't help them but it actually has the opposite effect of making them worse. There is nothing wrong with stating your opinion, I do it all the time. However you must learn to let people be wrong and stop responding, it's the best thing to can do for them.
  3. You know LadyKay, the problem with "liberals" is when they think they have the moral high ground and the facts on their side they just can't help themselves from arguing. As I have told you before in other threads you've derailed and turned into your soapbox, you can't convince Trump's supporters to change their ways. His abuse of the migrants, his belligerence and his anti-immigration policies isn't a bug, it's the feature. Move on with it.
  4. I can't believe the biased media is ignoring how nice Trump is to show up at weddings and instead focusing on his racism and children being tortured/killed in detention centers.
  5. "Preach the Gospel at all times. Use words if necessary." I do not agree with purging dissenting views, but I am also secure in what I believe. This isn't my forum however and I must respect the wishes of it's owner. I believe our conduct it the best witness and how we talk about others speak volumes about us and the character of Christians. Proverbs 15:1 1 A gentle answer turns away wrath, but a harsh word stirs up anger. I have on many occasions chastised people here for hostile, abusive comments towards muslims because of how it would effect our ability to witness to them. The same goes for athiests, pagans or anyone else. Calling atheists "the enemy" "satan's minions" and so on, or stating they are corrupted and therefore not worth talking to does nothing to endear us or win others to God. There are ways to present the truth in a way that does not attack people, and there are ways to present "the truth" in a way that makes one smirk and puff out the chest. Do the former, chastise the latter.
  6. I am Chinese and China has had pagan religions for thousands of years. Atheism exists all over the world and certainly is not exclusive to nor invented by China. The Chinese government bans most forms of religion save for government approved bodies. My parents were missionaries in China for many years and we dealt with many "closet" Christians and underground churches.
  7. Since so many Christians do not feel a need to adhere to their own stated values, it is unsurprising that many people don't take what we say seriously.
  8. Don't use her wedding dress to polish your motorcycle.
  9. I'm a big fan of divorcing adulterers. Ask my Ex-Husband.
  10. I don't really care what someone on youtube thinks as I can form my own opinions. Since reading comprehension is clearly not your strong point I'll clarify what I thought was obvious in my statement. It is not the bibles message that is the waste of energy, it's that particular form of delivery. I asked you to show me evidence that: A) This form of evangelism works and B) Evidence that preachers in the western world are in danger of being subjected to violence and death. You haven't either yet. I especially have no interest in "preachers" who use demonization and inflammatory rhetoric, as the title of your video implies. Clearly he is on a mission to stir up hostility against the LGBT community and is not interested in reaching out. If you can't make your own arguments and instead resort to linking to videos then we have nothing more to discuss.
  11. Repeating yourself and mis-characterizing someones arguments doesn't make you more correct. I never said the message helps no one, I condemned the form of delivery and told you why. Telling me I don't understand the message and how to deliver it is insulting and patronizing. If you think I'm wrong then show me I am wrong with evidence. The bible has many examples of ministering and none of them were standing on footstools yelling at a random crowd. In order to convince me it is a valid form of ministry you need to show me the numbers of people that have become Christians after street preaching. If they aren't listening then it's a waste of energy and not going to ring in any ears. I challenge you also to show me where a street preacher in the western world is risking life and limb by yelling on a street corner.
  12. My knees both need to be replaced. When I was a teen and in my early 20's I could jump over someone from a nearly standing position, (yay kung-fu training). About six months ago I get my husband (fiance at the time) to stand still so I can show off and.. Boom I slammed right into his face with my pelvis, we both fell over in a heap and I spent weeks icing my already messed up knees. I remember thinking "Okay self, you can no longer get nearly the height you did 20 years ago". That's what I get for trying to be a show off!
  13. I should add that I also feel old because when I look back at my teenage self I can't believe some of the stupid/careless/thoughtless/irresponsible things I did. Who was that girl?
