    Acceptable to Christ? Or acceptable to you...

    I doubt very much Christ cares that I randomly chose "pinko commie" - He knows what I am.. and thats all that matters.

    Do you agree that Jesus came to bring division, not peace?
    I believe that faith in Christ causes one to be separated from the World (division) and that faith in Christ brings peace.

    So.. yes and no.

    Alan Watts, one of the most interesting philosopher/theologians of the 20th century, was correct in saying that Christianity's intolerance of other religions and philosophical systems is the result of an inferiority complex. The "right-wing zealots" and "fanatics" in Christianity ought to be secure enough in their own faith to be able to handle criticisms of their faith and not become paranoid thinking that non-believers are out to get them.

    So Christ does not care how you portray yourself to the world?

    So.. yes and no.
    You're talking about an internal peace. I'm talking about in relation to others, particularly the lost.

    Nobody at ChristianForums.com can tell you that without fear of being banned so it's important that we at TOL remind you of the truth.

    There is still time for you to repent!


    Oh dude, you have really made my day!

    Thank God for you and TOL!!

    btw... I also heard that if you type SOZO on their site, it comes out like this ****

    Or how about the masses that consider themselves "Christian"?

    Would Christ do as ChristianForums.com does and strive to unite them? Or would He use TRUTH to divide them?

    Jesus is the one who brings devision, if you are not Jesus then it is not your job and you are assuming the rights that are reserved to the Deity. Generally this is not a good thing to do.

    So basically you are saying DON'T Do as Jesus does?

    Just to clarify...

    You are saying we should NOT strive to be like Christ, right?

    Christ Banned

    Yes,They are quite liberal over there.Lots of Catholics.And other unity only minded folks there.How dare one sharpeneth the other,and rebuke before all.
    If one is wise,however,you can get a fair ways there,and be used of God.

    Ahh.. well... so you did. However, I think you meant "acceptable to you".

    He does. However, as I said, none of the options were any more accurate so I just picked one that took my fancy.

    Uh huh. I said "separate from the world".

    Should we be at peace with the Lost? Good question. How many do you think we'd convert if we are at war with them? Does it work for the Muslims?

    So, yes. We should be approachable by all people, of all faiths, denominations, belief systems, etc etc. So.. peace.

    He would use truth to FREE them.. not to divide them.
