Yep. Easy to do. You simply mention a kingdom run by a king named Solomon and write about the dealings you have with it. Countries had relationships with eachother, you know. Solomon was even married to the daughter of an Egyptian Pharaoh.
But he is thinking about his wife, not the friend. I didn't say he was right
because many christians want to tell me how I should live my life. The fact that so many people have been fooled that this terrorist is a god of "love", is beyond me
they are so afraid to write new movies,, theres a new rambo where hes running around in camo depends..
And squash the evil liberals like roaches....
My high end yoga pants got a rip in them....and now I don't know what I will wear to my yoga class!
this is as stupid as the guy with 1000 pounds of weed driving with a brake light out
Kind of makes you wonder about the King James Onlyists that their translation is not only misleading, but it had to be "updated" by the New King James Version, the New International Version, etc. I'm not quibbling with your reading of it, just pointing out that no one realized "they" was better than "he" until atheists and critics started pointing out the anomaly.
Not wasting my time combing through my posts or yours looking for things you and I both know you have said.
Blaming the murder of millions on atheism is a red herring, because those murders weren't done in the name of atheism, but for suppression of dissidence and opposition.
I don't think crazy people like you should own guns.
Given their helmets, you'd LOVE it more Pithy. :)
It is on the interwebs... It must be true.
Not at all. You're too humble. And now your Trollishness may have the last word. Open season: say what you will. I have tired of this conversation and will not respond.
I know very well of the distinction, but this has little to do with what we were discussing. You made a claim about the nature of reality with no way to prove it, you just assert it as truth. I showed you how that is in error since anyone can follow the same model of making claims of absolute knowledge of something. The Aristotelian distinction makes the same error of assuming that god is that "necessary" existent thing/being, with no point of reference other than assertion. I go back to old Hitchens who stated, "I can grant you all the miracles and you'd still be left with an empty cup", because even if we assume the "necessary thing/being" is some sort of god, you'd be in no way able to say that therefore, it is the christian one....or any other specific god for that matter. Still, there is no reason to assume a god/being to begin with without committing a logical fallacy. You are stuck in an endless loop of logical fallacies and circular reasoning and the worst part about it is, you are unwilling to engage in honest discussion about it or be humble about your level of knowledge. You want to say, "This is what I believe, but can't prove it", I'm ok with that statement, even though we still won't agree on the nature of reality. But you don't say this, you say, "I know this to be true"....don't provide any evidence though, just assert it, then sidestep any logical points or questions. It's the height of arrogance and ignorance. I'm done now.
Ok, I thought it was an odd answer!
"Given this, the Church's relevance in what was once a bastion of Catholicism is waning fast. What can or should the Church do to regain its relevance in modern society?"
God commands them to be benevolent and compassionate, so I do not disagree at all.
It would be mutual. No, unilateral, rather.
Yeah, I wouldn't expect you to. Slightly autistic (in the literal way, not the insult way) so I have a tendency to have 'passions'. Regular interests? What are those?
I know the feeling, remember I drove six hours yesterday!
To answer the question I wouldn't spend my money at a place that was like this. I would probably feel discriminated against, but I would make sure to tell everyone I knew not to spend their money there. However, I am not naive enough to think that there aren't very small towns where there aren't many options and it's not right that they would be forced to drive hours to find another place. I wish people just stopped using religion as an excuse to be an azzhole.
