Re: Do Christians Think That They are Morally Better People?

If you think that the Bible is trying to teach you to be moral, you've completely missed the entire point. Throughout the NT not only do we read Jesus preached morally perfect behaviors and mindsets to the immoral, but He practiced what He preached as well. Even in the OT we can see God had His sta...

So all the times when I kept asking you to define your terms it never occurred to you onc...
