Re: Told Ya So!

One doesn't need to be a Christian to see they come on a range. In a stunning twist that is pretty common state of religions.

I agree about Islam and Mormonism. I also agree about Obama being a liar. I'm making the point that I disagree with the OP that Obama is a secret Muslim. That makes no logical or practical sense. And it makes no sense that he could somehow be a Muslim yet deny that faith and follow none of the tenets of the religion. That's all I was saying.

And yes I'm a Christian.

To those that laugh about saying some people are true Christians and others aren't, that's an extremely important debate that has been settled more than one time in the history of the church. That why we have creeds such as the Nicene Creed to help define the true beliefs of orthodoxy. We also have extensive confessions of faith such as the Westminster and London Baptist which is a near copy of the Westminster. With out a doubt different orthodox denominations debate amongst ourselves on important beliefs but we still consider the others to be true believers. We debate secondary issues.

If everyone who claimed to "believe in Christ" was a true Christian then it would be a free for all. The Bible is very clear about who and what a true Christian is. Again, we can debate secondary issues but for the most part all evangelical Protestant denominations agree on the main tenets of the faith, such as who Christ is, the virgin birth, the resurrection, the assention, the Trinity, salvation by faith alone and Biblical inerrancy. I have no time or desire to get into all of that because it's well known that most Protestant denominations all agree on those things. Mormans, Jehovah witnesses and Roman Catholics don't hold to all the same beliefs. I am also not saying that a Catholic cannot be a true Christian but the Catholic Church holds beliefs that Protestants obviously don't believe are in line with Biblical salvation.

Now back to Obama being a Muslim.lol

Re: Told Ya So!

This one time a Christian tried to sell me their religion while I sat on a bench. I listened for a moment and then said. "I respect your beliefs, no thank you". The reaction which occurred was "well these aren't beliefs, I'm talking about truth...."I replied "I know all about truth and I forgive you, goodbye". The man's lips kept moving, but he had lost his words.

Yeah right. Like, give me some freaking bus fare and help me out. Don't give me a freaking lecture. Maybe, "hang in there or pay it forward", but yeah.

Do you actually 'respect' Christian beliefs?

More specifically, I respect the human condition to have beliefs and the human right to have religion- like they are my own.

I didn't respect the man's behavior in the instance I recounted. Fortunately I had my own to respect in the situation.

Re: Told Ya So!

Sure, it's plausible when you deny all existence that contradicts it, closes your ears to any opposing argument and deride the intelligence / bias of anyone who disagrees with you and dress yourself in enough confirmation bias to start your own suicide cult.

Unfortunately these are not healthy traits.

Agree, except for the "suicide cult" part.

So it's not the beliefs that you respect but the right they have to hold them. So, I'm curious, do you respect their beliefs?

What was your evidence he was Muslim before he was elected?

At first I laughed at this. But actually the country was sort in a "Lean on Me" situation at the time, much like when Romeo Crennel took the the head coaching job in Cleveland, Lovie Smith took the Bucs job, or Hue Jackson again now in Cleveland.

Re: Told Ya So!

Man is not to be trusted, Gods Word is.

it says that He said:
Quote:
3/7/08 From God the Father - A Letter Given to Timothy, For All Those Who Have Ears to Hear

Thus says the Lord to the United States:

Obama shall lead you, and by him shall My will and judgment against your nation be fulfilled, for all its forsaking of Me and My Israel. And so I have brought from among your enemy, even one from Ishmael, to rule over you for a time and a season, foreordained, until that foretold is accomplished, and the king of fierce countenance shall rule.[...]
archive.org confirms it was a prophecy.
