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.

What's crazy is he has worked at a church for 15+ years and been in church 3 times a week all his life. Honestly most of my Christian friends don't know anything about the majority of the Bible. They don't know what they are choosing to have faith in. One of my gfs claims she wants it to stay ignorant. She thinks I'm not longer a christian because I spent too much reading and understanding it with my mind. She blames the fact that I went to a christian school and read the Bible too much and instead I should just be "feeling god". lol Yeah she's not too bright.

I brought up the Holy of Holies at a Bible study one time and I had to explain it. No one seemed to know much about it which is shocking because I thought that was mostly common knowledge.

Theological "truths" are subjective, and no matter what you believe, you will never know it to be 100% truth... besides maybe when you die...

Only christians get to decide who is a christian, duh.

It actually is kind of a valid point.

If I tell you I'm a devout Muslim, but I don't believe in Allah, Islamic ideals or anything the Koran says, do you believe me?

Only Allah knows the truth in your heart.

Ah, but the heart dictates the words and deeds.

To put it another way, if I tell you I'm a pacifist, then proceed to take out a baseball bat and beat the daylights out of everyone I see, do you buy it?

    • You miss the point. Taylor was here before. We picked him because of what he could do for our wide receivers not because he had some great knowledge no other person had on the staff. Shula and Rivera and Gettleman studied multiple college systems for months before signing Taylor or drafting McCaffrey or Curtis and would have drafted the same whether Taylor was here or not. They liked the way Taylor developed McCaffrey which showed his talent but Stanford's offense wasn't Taylors idea or unique to him. Shula has a connection to Taylor as early as when Shula was at Alabama.  The debate was whether Taylor was chosen to replace Shula because Shula didn't know what to do to run a college offense and if he screwed up Taylor would replace him. And that Taylor was the reason and most influential in getting McCaffrey. I said it wasn't even close to the truth and this plan predated Taylor and was more thorough and we'll thought out. Everything since then just confirms I was right once again like usual.  
    • Assholes should've never taken it away in the first place.  Me and a couple buddies had a hookup and were all hyped up and planned out going to it... then the NBA had to get all political and take it out on the city of Charlotte and the fans -- which made no fuging sense.  Seriously doubt we'll even get the chance to go again.
    • 6'6" 255.  He'll definitely have some good mentors with JP, CJ and the rest of the D-Line crew. 255 he'll need to put some weight on don't you think?
