Why do “Christians” always quote the old testament, which has nothing to do with Christians?
I, Ken Ammi, replied
Romans 15:4, “For everything that was written in the past was written to teach us, so that through the endurance taught in the Scriptures and the encouragement they provide we might have hope.”
Joseph Thwaites chimed in with
You don’t have to quote Scripture to spot a Kookbabbling Bull[****]ter
Please mind your manners.
Why does the truth hurt and I am amazed that the biggest Charlatans in the USA are Evanglical Christian Ministers.
Read very Carefully I lived through Trouble and you will find that people in the UK don’t go in for that My God is better than your God Bulls[***] and yes I can be very blunt and I can swear like a Trooper if you want me to
I pray I find you and yours well through these times.
Please mind your manners.
Well, I would argue that the administrators of the US government are actually the biggest charlatans in the USA.
But when you made a statement about charlatanry of Evangelical Christian Ministers you did not close the loop: you did not actually condemn them. I wonder if that is because you realize that on your worldview, you cannot viably make a case against their actions—besides merely emoting that you have subjectively personally decided that you do not like it and, of course, even then that merely personal opinion is based on hidden assumptions.
Ken Ammi live in a part of world were we call out nutjobs like Quayle, Wayne, Hovind, Schnoebelen.
I have no problem with people of faith not the Evangelical Loons but Charlatans who rip off good people and laugh all the way to the bank whilst milking them of every cent they possess
My dear late wife was murdered in Rhodesia during the Bush War and the man I admire is the late Father John Dove SJ who ran a leper colony in Rhodesia and was hacked to death by members of ZANLA.
The Brothers Grimm could not make up stories like the Kookbabbling Bulls[***]ters and darlings of American Evangelical Christianst
You have my condolences about your wife.
It was a long time ago
Still. So now, what premise does your worldview provide you for condemning things such as charlatanry?
I have no time for Charlatans especially Gary Wayne and Steve Quayle
I spent 6 long hard years getting an MA in History and I dislike people who make anything up to sell to the Bible Belt.
You seem to have no reply except that you are expressing feelings. You will be glad to know that a new book of mine will critique Quayle, et al. But that for which you have or do not have time is no standard and what you like or dislike is no standard and that you are playing mind reader in terms of that you know they do it to sell stuff is well, just that. So, how does your worldview 1) provide a premise for truth, logic, and ethics, 2) for adhering to them, and 3) for demanding that others do likewise? Without these, you are merely subjectively emoting de jour.
Dont fret your pretty little head I know Quayle is a right wing kook babbling lunatic who does not deal in the truth.
Friend, I also know Quayle is that—which is why I am featuring him in a new book of mine wherein I debunk such personage.
Yet, I have an absolute premise upon which to do so and you seem to merely want to emote and ignore that you have no premised upon which to condemn anyone for anything so that you have discredited yourself from complaining.
I am going to write a book about the likes of Hovind, Quayle, Wayne Carrico and Schnobelen its going to be called “Adventures in Hyperstupidity” which the strap line “Theres one born every minute”
Well, do not miss the point: your book will be nothing but a version of a “My dear diary, today I feel…” entry unless you establish premises from your worldview. For example, not just, “I have subjectively personally decided, de jour, that I do not like hyperstupidity” but rather, “My worldview’s absolutely universal imperative to not be hyperstupid and for condemning hyperstupidity is…” and then take it from there.
Well, that was all since no replies were forthcoming.
