While my post was meant to have humor in it -- there is a lot of truth in it, also. Can you show me anything I wrote in my initial post which is not true? Or, is it only because I have poked fun at your atheist buddies -- that I am now a bad guy?
Bill, I would have said the same no matter who it is you chose to criticize & mock with your scornful jocularity. Where in my post did I say you lied? You’re putting words in my mouth.....as you've done many times.
My Friend, no matter what I had written -- even if I had said that Deep, Fish, and Frog are all perfect and wonderful -- you would have found a way to make that evil. So be it. Fortunately, my being on the Religion Forum is not contingent upon your approval of what I write.
What did I say that what you said was evil? Where did I say that you need my approval to be on this forum or what you write? There you go….putting words in my mouth, AGAIN!!
Yet, tell me, Chick. Why is it that atheists and other non-believers can call Christians all sort of names -- and you think it is cute? But, let a Christian suggest that the atheist has a head/spirit problem -- and you rant and rave like we have committed the most horrible crime for speaking against your atheist friends.
If there has been any name calling by the Atheist to the Christians, it’s because of the way they are mocked/attacked for their non-belief, usually by you. Are they not allowed to give as good as they get? You are allowed to shout your belief but they aren’t allowed to shout their un-belief?I can say the same, in that if any of us disagree with anything you say, you rant & rave like we have committed the most horrible crime for speaking against you.
Chick, I assure you of this one point. If your atheist friends continue to deny God -- and if you continue to hold their hands, cheer them on, and join them in putting down God and Christians -- you will not be friends in the next life. No, in the eternal home of all atheists who continue to deny God until they leave this world -- there will be no such thing as friendship. You think things are bad in this world now -- wait until the next -- it will be magnitudes worse.
I’m not holding anyone’s hand, I haven’t cheered anyone on. Many people here, I count as my friend. Most have been very kind to me, & I would defend anyone here that you attack, if I felt the need. Where have I said that things are bad in this world? Putting words in my mouth…..again!
Now, before you jump up and down, huffing and puffing, declaring that Bill Gray said you are going to hell -- I cannot say that you or anyone will go to hell. The only person who can make that reservation is YOU. No one can make it for you -- except YOU.
That’s a lie, Bill! You have told many people, myself included, that we are gong to Hell.
But, continue to hold hands and follow your atheist friends -- and you are on the path to making that reservation. I am asking you to get off that path -- and get on the path to eternal life with Christ.
Even if I were a Christian, I would still extend the hand of friendship to anyone, no matter how they believed. I wouldn’t want to be the type of Christian that is constantly judging & mocking people like you do. I think God would be very disappointed in any Christian that does that. Any “reservation” I have/don’t have is not your call to make.
Why is it so hard for you to accept -- that Jesus Christ loves you and wants to spend eternity with YOU? But, it is YOUR CHOICE!
Hard for me to accept? Sure, next time that boat comes close to the water’s edge, I’ll be sure to jump in & hope that little hole in the bottom doesn’t sink the boat & drown us all…..all because you said it wouldn’t.
BTW, Bill. This is what I said, in case you forgot. “Keep throwing that Christian love around, Bill, I'm sure you're impressing those people you're trying to reach”.
This was intended for ALL the people that you mock, not just the Atheist. I was being sarcastic since you didn’t get it. There is no love in you, & I’m sure those people you’re trying to reach are not impressed. No, Bill, I don't like you, but I do feel very sorry for you. For the simple reason that you give Christianity a bad name & turn more people away from it than draw them near it. Something is very wrong with you that you feel such a need to do that. It's really very sad.
