    Fear of what?

    If you are wrong, you're spending an eternity of separation from your creator.

      Sure you know, fear of displeasing your god and incurring his wrath, based on myth. There is no creator so I am not worried.

        All have sinned and fallen short of the glory of God, but such is His mercy, that while we were still sinners, He sent His son so that we might have liberty through Him.

        Liberty != fear.

        You need to learn what it is we believe before you make up reasons for you to hate it.

        Good luck with that.

          I know what you believe. I don't hate it, for the same reasons I don't hate unicorns. I just think it irrational to base your life on several thousand year old myth.

            Dont stay in school.
            I was taught the things in school that he complains about not being taught.

            Consumer math for instance was a required course in my high school, just so we would all be prepared for adulthood. I assumed it was taught in all of them.

              I used to date a girl that had a 9 year old daughter, and I helped her with her homework. The garbage they sent her home with was infuriating. I called the school at least once and they had no good answer for it.

                Which would explain why you just spent a whole lot of time describing it incorrectly.

                  Please explain what I described incorrectly.

                    Even non-parents are better qualified to teach?

                      You said Christians run their lives based on the notion that God would punish them over their beliefs, but everyone will face judgement to the same extent for what they have done regardless of what they believe.

                        Ah, so it's not just justification by faith alone, works count as well. Didn't know you were a Catholic.

                        My comment was really that your theology (and those of many here) seemed based on the requirement that you must believe in a literal interpretation of the Bible else your god would not be pleased, and we all know what happens then---Sodom and Gomorrah, babies get killed in a big flood, dogs and cats living together, etc.

                          Nope.

                          And when you're corrected as to what someone believes, good form is to acknowledge and atone for your error; not compound it.

                          Nope. We do not believe that either.

                          Are you just going to keep digging?

                            Homeschooling is as good as the parent's understanding and willingness to teach.

                            I've seen kids enter secondary schools from home schooling, who were superbly prepared. And I've seem kids from homeschooling crash and burn and give up because they lacked basic math and language skills. And I've seen them do O.K., but not excell, because they never learned to critically think about things.

                            It is doable. But it's entirely dependent on the quality of the teacher.

                              I wrote, "Ah, so it's not just justification by faith alone, works count as well."

                              To which he responded "Nope.

                              Aside from the fact that it is difficult to understand why anyone should atone for misunderstanding some other person's belief.

                              His original comment clearly indicated that what you "did" in life would count on Judgment Day, but now he seems to say that is not what he meant. I will wait until he explains it to me, as I think as a good Christian he should do. He may be afraid that I will not accept his statement or, even worse, ridicule it. But 1Peter 4:14 suggests he should welcome such ridicule, unless of course he fears his faith is not strong enough to be a good example for his god and needs to resort to one liners and emoticons.

                                No, it didn't.
