I understand your point of view and anger. Persecution is not new to me either. What is your opinion on how we can end it? I’m willing to look beneath the suface of your comments and realize that there is something I can love about you. If more people had this
attitude maybe we and those like us wouldn’t have to suffer as much.
Slythe, I do believe in God. But I do have a problem with religion. The atrocities that have been committed by one religious group to another throughout time are disgusting and shameful. I was a devote athiest for 15 years after growing up in a very abusive religion. It wasn’t until I realized that there is a big difference between God and “Religion” that I started reading the bible again. There is alot of wierd stuff in the Bible that I don’t understand, but I know there is a God. You mentioned the death penalty. That is interesting because that’s been weighing heavily on my lately. I can’t seem to make up my mind on that one. Certainly, if I were to base a view on biblical writings
then it would depend on what book of the bible I’m reading :)What is your opinion?
Your right about that survey. Sometimes it’s utter silliness that gives people food for thought. You are plainly intelligent and I certainly didn’t mean to insult anyone. And no, I also didn’t think it would change anyone’s mind.
Yes, I do spout “Love” alot because it is the absence of love that causes violence. Not someone’s access to a gun. We have to change People, not objects that can be used as weapons. I get the feeling that some folk’s have lived a loveless life for so long that they can’t even conceive what one would be like. I know it sounds corny in our society today, But love is the Only answer…
John_3:16 you talk about not enough in the world and love this and love that, love is good, blah, blah, blah; how can you spew such bullshit when you defend a product that has one purpose and one purpose only: destruction.
I’m so sorry that love is just Blah, Blah, Blah, and Bullshit to you. I hope your life gets a little better.
I’m not defending the TEC-9 firearm. What made you think I was. Given my choice, I would never own such a useless piece of thrash. But that is just MY opinion, and it’s just as worthless as your’s.
I would never own a gremlin automobile either.
Sure banning all guns tomorrow will not solve anything immediately, but you have to start somewhere. Maybe it will take five years, ten years, fifty years, but the fact of the matter is that eventually there will be either no more or extremely less amounts of drive-bys, school shootings, armed assaults, etc. Can’t you people see this logic?
What logic? Do you really think that that making guns illegal with stop hate? No, the hate will still be there and guns will still be in the hands of the lawless. The people that can’t find a black market dealer will just use another tool to project their hate.
I agree with you that we have to start somewhere. I respect your ideas. But I don’t think your solutions will work to the ends you want to achieve.
For the message of the cross is foolishness to those who are perishing, but to us who are being saved it is the power of God.
