    Aimiel - if you're referring to this post:http://www.theologyonline.com/forums...6&postcount=73
    consider that he may have been trying to make a point without claiming that Jesus faked his death.

    Or he may have been talking about tuna.

    Hard to tell with this one.

    • Let's hope so. It really rubs me the wrong way though. Then you post to them, and they ignore the truth, that Jesus said that He was dead, and is alive forevermore. It's just that they make Him out to be a liar.

      • If they ignore the truth, on their own heads.

        If they try to make him out to be a liar, who's going to listen to them? Muslims?

            It sounds more like you're reading many of your own ideas into someone else's proclamation of faith and are then affronted or disappointed when it turns out that they don't believe as you thought they did.

            This demonstrates the importance of clarifying what someone else actually means when they use jargon.

            • You're right. Someone claiming to be a psychologist, even someone with a degree, isn't necessarily a 'real' psychologist; they might just be using the jargon. I'll keep that in mind.

                Not thinking of anyone in particular are we?

                But your metaphor isn't quite apt since being a psychologist the result of years of study and passing written and oral exams by a board of practicing psychologists.

                Of course for religious beliefs, there is no such confirmation. Even your deity doesn't seem to be able to tell you who is and who isn't one of his followers... hence your difficulty.

                • Christians who endure years of study, passing written, oral and spiritual exams, the latter being given by The Lord, Himself, are confirmed in many ways and by many different 'bodies' and institutions; and are often dismissed as 'whacko' by practicing psychologists as having a 'heaven's reward' fallacy fixation. The idea being to undermine and to minimize Truth, experienced by those Christians. Our diety is capable of doing a lot more than even those who know Him personally have given Him credit for. He's the one Who allows any and every opposition to Him to exist, without any complaints; and still hasn't been proven wrong once. Your diety isn't capable of telling you anything, because it doesn't exist. Hence your frustration.

                      What ever gave you that idea?

                      Not that some folks wouldn't like for that to be true...

                            Perhaps. Or perhaps I actually think I am doing some good here, at least according to the emails I receive occasionally.

                            Ahh, well. I didn't take an oath never to post here again and I'm not immutable like some deities, so I guess I'll chalk it up to changing my mind.

                                HI Aimiel
                                The lawless man feels that God has lost control down here,
                                that he would feel that he needed to sit on his throne,
                                The lawless man often is found to beleive in his heart that God dosnt care and with no fear he stands among the people condeming and judging who is Christs and who isint his.
                                But God knows who each one is, and who is following Christ
                                That when they should come across such evil that the earthquake will not move there foundations
                                He alows such people to exist so we may press on to firm foundations,
                                each one would need to move the lawless man out of the way so Christ may come and lead you.

                                For while he stands in the way preaching what sounds right you stand to perish from lack of understanding.
                                I say fear God with all your heart that you maynot be lead to the slaughter house,

                                Lawless men are caught in an understanding that they have no movement from,
                                they are void of any other understanding, condemed and set for this time and age.
                                They envy all that have ears to understand anything contrary to their understanding,
                                having been left now to burn within, in reward for there works.
