So I got called an atheist today

Are the teachings figurative or literal? You can't have it both ways. Until you're willing to completely let go of all sin, hatred and forgive and love you need to shut your trap about what someone else is doing.

I have to agree with this...Except for the letting go of Sin part. Sin is a human idea and creation, Just like "God"

when there's nothing left to say but generalizations, a religious discussion tends to be over.

Lock it down.

Kill Fortunetellers

A man or a woman who acts as a medium or fortuneteller shall be put to death by stoning; they have no one but themselves to blame for their death. (Leviticus 20:27 NAB)

gotta say i agree with this one, i mean how pooty of a fortune teller do you have to be to not see it coming?

Some irony about mediums. Saul used one to call back Samuel from the dead. Yeah, I said dead, to get some final nuggets of advice.

Then in Acts 16, one was following Paul and Silas around and she got on Paul's nerves and he cast out that spirit that was helping the chick predict stuff.

Her bosses got mad(she was a slave, yet could predict stuff, hmm) because their money maker was gone.

funny you bring that up. One of my husbands super christian friends just read the other day about Saul using a medium to talk to Samuel and he was like wtf?! he didn't know stuff like that was in the bible. He's only been a christian for 29ish years. :confused:

even more funny is this is exactly one of the points i will speak on this Sun. doing your homework. know what in the heck you believe and not second hand stuff.

from health, to laws, to politics and religion. too many people just go off what somebody else says and hasn't a clue about the truth.

    • And to think this guy made it through 7 rounds and not one team wanted him.  Thank God Gettleman was on his "A" game and signed him here. Amazing how talent can bypass so many scouts, coaches and GMs. If they did a redraft.   What round would he go to?  Round 1?  He's a solid of a Guard as any in this league.
    • you do realize that $1M pledge he made was after he had received a ton of backlash and outcry from the media for sitting during the national anthem? He did hold his promise and has made some other donations as well, but before he decided to sit at football games, he didn't do jack poo for oppressed communities and the homeless, or any other charities for that matter. He was just a narcissist prima dona who so happened to play for one of the most talented teams in the NFL headed by one of the greatest coaches in the NFL. Him prospering early on in his career made him a cocky SOB who dressed like a thug during press conferences and treated the media like dog poo.  Yes people change, but he changed for the wrong reasons. His career was in turmoil, he was a declining NFL QB trying to stay relevant, so he thought up a rouge to get back in the spotlight by sitting. After he received backlash, he thought to himself "oh crap, I need to back up my words with some action. let me make a few donations to show the world I truly care about what I stand for"  the dude could give a rats ass about any of that poo. He didn't even show up to vote, and I don't think he's ever voted in his life. And I don't care about voting for the president, but at least vote for your local officials and congressman and for your states propositions. If he truly wants to have a voice and use the stage he has to inflict some serious changes in this country, there's a way to go about it, not seek attention for the wrong reasons just to resurrect your career.  
    • I love Moton. The only thing that freaks me out about him is that he played for a small school. I do think he could've flourished for a big time program though.
