    It isn't easy, sitting in a theist's chair; my Faith is just that - a 'faith'; I am secure in my beliefs, but obviously can never be able to 'prove' that my Faith is a legitimate one. At least I am lucky enough to believe 'each one to his own', but that doesn't help me in intellectual discussions with others; the theist and the non-theists talk different languages.

    Are you justifying AV1611?

    I am justifying no one; I am trying to make the point that to prove a Faith (in my case Christianity) is an impossibility. I will not comment on our fellow member; what he thinks is up to him and his conscience.

    It's best to just quote Scripture, Michel, and let God fend for Himself. He said His word won't return void, and, of course, He's coming back in Person to take care of business.

    Yes, if you take the bible literally you would realise that he broke his promise. He was meant to return soon, yet here we are 2000 odd years later.

    He did a good job. Quoting scriptures do nothing for those who don't believe in it.

    This I don't understand. What business could god have to take care of? What possible reason could there be for god to come in person to do anything?

    And just where would that be in the Bible, Fade?

    Although, I'm sure you'll find it in one of those per-versions.

    Then why are you so angry and disrespectful? Don't worry about abortion. If there is a Christian god and if he returns let him be the judge of what is or is not a sin. Your job as a Christian is to worship god, to love thy neighbor, to judge not least ye be judged yourself. It is not to torment or persecute others. It is not to bomb clinics. Why don't you love that person and try to help them through their grief. Do you understand what I am saying? But you seem to be full of hate and rage. You should strive to be more Christ like or find another religion.

    Wrong there. That's why God calls His word, "quick and powerful" in Hebrews 4:12.

    Did you read my post on the reasons Daniel gave for the Tribulation? --- Daniel 9:24
