Quote from: Jem
And since when did Christendom qualify as "Christian"?
It's in the dictionary definition, Jem.
Quote
Christians considered as a group.

(Ah but dictionaries are all part of Christendom's dastardly plot against the poor innocent JWs - do you actually believe that Jem?)

Quote
By your definition then, Jesus was a threat to Judaism and deserved his death....?
Strawman!
He was rightly seen as a threat to the authorities but that doesn't mean he deserved death: they could have been in the wrong, Jem!

Quote
In fact if everyone spoke well of us, we'd be worried.
It has been known for the secular world to criticise the church.

1532
I think there's an inherent problem when someone repudiates Christendom and in the same breath presumes to participate in Christendom-only discussions.

You can't have it both ways unless you're Jem.

I agree. Jem's position is self-contradictory.

50% right and 50% wrong!

Not half as funny as some of your posts.

I suppose there could be other O threads  e.g. TO, UO, CO, PO, MO, FO, ...

I'll leave it as an exercise for the reader(s) to identify what these mean (hint: they're in pairs).

Steve,

Fact this POTUS election is in 2016 not the 1860s or the 1960s!

bskeptic,

This thread is about what this one Muslim did and the media coverage. I don't think anyone has said anything in this thread along the lines "this proves Islam is a religion of peace". So why are you knocking down your own strawman?

He wasn't the only Muslim who stood with the Christians on the bus:

Quote
He was among a group of Muslims who refused to be separated from Christian passengers when the gang ordered them off a bus in Mandera last month.

As to whether his religion influenced his action we don't really know, but we do know that religion can influence people to do both good and bad.

I dont think Trintarians should be allowed to speak in XO threads started by non-trintarians. 

There view of XO is warped through the lense of nicea/rome and the developing church (not early church or those who where around jesus during his life)

Non trintarians should be able to post in trintarian threads so as to be able to correct them, so they dont fall fowl of mans philosophical self trickery.

Hmm! Insult dressed up as joke, or are you really being serious?

The rest of that article is Craig doing a wonderful job of demonstrating that he doesn't understand statistics at all.

e.g. why is he using a lottery ticket example which is an OR probability: either ticket 1 wins or ticket 2 wins ...

when the subject is AND probability

premise 1 true AND premise 2 true ....

That man would have done the same thing no matter what religion he was.  That headline should have been "Man who died while protecting unarmed non-combatants in a terrorist attack was awarded top honour."  I see no reason why religion should have been included.

Muslim does a good thing but don't call him a Muslim.
Muslim does a bad thing: call him a Muslim.

How does this work with Christians?

and there is the other question - should we have XO threads?

This is following Jem's post in the XO Resurrection thread started by Snoochies but is a general question not just about Jem!

Quoting the post from that thread:

Jem,

You're answering the wrong question. The question is simply when someone who identifies as a Christian and a member of Christendom, starts a thread as Christian only (effectively Christendom only) then who should or not post to that thread.

Quote from: Jem
By your definition, Jesus wasn't a Jew then

You're forgetting that Jesus is both God and man, and was Jewish by birth. The religion he preached is different from Judaism but that doesn't affect the fact that His mother was Jewish.

Following grosso's good advice I'm going to start a new thread with this post to avoid hijacking Snoochies' thread.

In the OT. . . you were only suppose to mourn for 7 days.
That refers to the external ritual not the internal mental state. God isn't cruel or mind controlling like that.

Steve,

I woudn't call Iran-Contra a little thing.

We have agreed in the past. You've written many good OPs defending the truth of Christianity. I don't agree with your politics.

Ignoring
"#BlackLivesMatter is not meant to suggest that non black lives don't matter"
(not Soren's actual comment but the principle he describes here)
is not a good thing for a Christian to do in my opinion; and you did do this.

Steve,

Just to clarify when you say "I'm a Republican" does that mean "I'm a member of the Republican Party" or simply "I habitually vote Republican"? I thought it could mean either or both.

Quote
Nixon was a traitor to such Republican ideas.
Nixon was a traitor to his country and democracy, as was Reagan. If people in power receive the punishment they deserve it would be a warning to the others.
