Re: Why God's Love is a Joke

I noted that one of the reviews said, Pope Pius XII said, "Every person should read this book." Is there a citation that he said that in relation to MV? The words of Pope Pius XII: "Publish it just as it is. There is no need to give an opinion as to whether it is of supernatural origin. Those who r...

Re: How do we approach a new proposition?

Ah, I thought you were serious about not wanting to fight again for this selfsame hilltop, and yet here you are. Very well, let's see who gets to put artillery on Little Round Top, shall we? Herein lies the problem of gratuitous evil. I've never seen an answer to it; not a convincing one anyway. An...

Re: How do we approach a new proposition?

I am using the word in its normal sense. I don't accept your assumption that if God does not act in one of the possible ways that would demonstrate compassion on any specific occasion this must be because he lacks compassion; therefore your question has no coherence from my perspective and I can't ...

Re: Why God's Love is a Joke

Claire, although I still don't agree with you, that was a well-written, polite post. I would post with you more if your posts were like that more often.

Re: Why God's Love is a Joke

And btw, you once talked about me having hatred towards MV or some such similar wording. Do you think I hate MV?

Re: Why God's Love is a Joke

Do you think MV is a valid source? (or whatever word you want to use). If so, why? You know I do. And, I'll start putting together my response. In the meantime, will you explain why you accept the writers, and their accounts recorded in the Bible, as credible? Maybe some day. Not now, though - I ha...

His parents came from toxic churches See, that rings alarms bells for me. His parents came from toxic churches, yet he wasn't indoctrinated as a kid?

Plus a side of moving the goalposts - after my answer, he added "that knew all the arguments". But who the heck knows "all" the arguments? And is there a list somewhere of all the arguments? and who is the person responsible for keeping this list up-to-date? Just to clarify, I meant the main ones. ...

Re: Chapabel's Cowardice Towards His Church Policies/Staff Contact.

I can deal with aggressive and rude... Kinda' seems like you can't: Sure I can - in your case, I deal with it by not talking with you as much as I would if you were a nicer person. It's the WAY you did it. No, its what I said, and how you took it: No, it's the WAY you did it. I guess I don't need t...
