  1. I'm not sure how you came to the idea that I was telling people to ignore Christian hypocrisy based on my posts, but I'll try to clear up that right now. I'm pleading for people to call out Christian hypocrites by pointing out what they are doing is not Christian. It is racism, elitism, etc using Christianity as its cover. My goal is for people to separate Christianity as a system of faith from these hateful beliefs and attack the hateful beliefs themselves. I want people to confront these folks with "What you are saying isn't Christian and it's not Christian because Christianity says this..." What I want to stop happening is people confronting them with "Typical Christian..."
  2. Christianity didn't make the mistake. Fake Christians are using Christianity to advance their selfish ends. Christianity as a faith suffers for it, and frankly since the perpetrators were fake Christians in the first place, the perpetrators don't really have a problem with that long term either. The only ones who care are people who see what is happening to their message of love, truth and service.
  3. @bearrock I agree which is why I made that post yesterday. But by not speaking up and pointing out what separates actual Christian beliefs from people claiming to be Christians only allows the hypocrisy to continue and drives more people away from actual Christian beliefs which would, if adhered to, correct the problem. Also allowing comments from posters that declare that they are fully justifiied when they lump people using labels, tying those trying to correct the issue with people causing the issue, does nothing but further divide the country and prevent the type of discourse that could work towards correcting the issue.
  4. You are confusing the tenets with the people who are failing to apply them. The problem isn't Christianity's message of love, truth and service to others. The problem is people saying they are Christians but don't love, speak or seek the truth, and serve only their own interests. The other issue is that Christianity already tells us how this all ends here on Earth; it goes down in flames. Which necessarily means Christians will fail to save the world. But that was never the requirement. The requirement was for Christians to do their best to follow inherently impossible demands and bring as many people with us to salvation before the world around us collapses.
  5. Thank you for at least putting Jesus first. Wow. I'll just let your post be my last exhibit. Good luck with that calling out hypocrisy thing.
  6. You're fine with what exactly? Being grouped with people you vastly disagree with just because you share a common label or trait? If that is what you mean, why would you be fine with that? Also, the overwhelming majority of humans are hypocrites, Christians aren't any different in that respect. My issue is that Christians should be humble enough to recognize when they are called on it and ask forgiveness. You point out people will rush to defend their own while casting a wide net over others. That's exactly what you just did. In response to a post where I was specifically calling out false Christians.
  7. Thank you from all of us for jumping on that grenade then.
  8. Complaining about how unfair it is when people group you with others who label themselves similarly, in a thread where you've done the exact same thing. It appears those hypocrisy lessons were well learned. Which goes to my point. God says to love and not judge. When people claiming to be Christians do the exact opposite of what God says, why fault the One who said don't do it?
  9. There are. Why you'd want to use the same line of argument as those types is beyond me.
  10. Maybe I am jaded due to my views on Republicans, but I say the people supporting this are model Republicans. Maybe I am jaded due to my views on the military, but I say the people supporting this are model military. Maybe I am jaded due to my views on whites, but I say the people supporting this are model whites. Maybe I am jaded due to my views on males, but I say the people supporting this are model males. Fun stuff, huh?
  11. Statements like this just provide fodder for these hypocrites to keep on keeping on.
  12. I'm Christian and I have no problem saying there is no possible way you can be Christian and support this presidency. I have been pointing this out to my parents for the past year with little progress. Also, I'll go ahead and remind folks, the main antagonists of the Gospels were the Pharisees...you know, the church leaders. I've come to believe that this is seriously a test of faith, and right now a large portion of Christians are abjectly failing.

    I think the disconnect we have is that you are looking for the "happy Jon" ending. Nothing about Jon's character suggests he gets a happy ending. He is every bit Ned's "son" even if not by birth.

    The Night. They are called the Night's Watch. Lots of ice cube trays. They'll turn to fundraisers, like a bake sale. Hot Pie is apparently available. No, he shapeshifts into a dragon and flies off to "console" Drogon. Then gets Drogon killed because seriously Jon is a kiss of death when it comes to relationships. Because he draws the line with sleeping with his aunt. Sleeping with his sister would signal a character flaw. Plus see above, Sansa would probably be like "Thanks, no thanks." Peter, Paul and Mary No, she's the new Moana. Expect to see her get her own musical number and become a Disney Princess. They left with the new Lord of Dorne, a land where plot lines go to die Once they discovered charred bodies make pretty good bricks, things went quicker. I present to you Trump. Draw your own comparisons. Isn't a personality required to wink?

    I think you're misinterpreting Jon's future. He was sentenced to the Night's Watch, not sentenced be a wildling. I doubt Jon's honor would allow him to buck that. As I saw it, him going north of the wall was just as an escort to return the wildlings to their home. The Night's Watch routinely patrolled north of the wall. I don't think Jon had any intention of remaining there; he was going to serve the Night's Watch as he was expected to. That's why he told Arya she could visit him at Castle Black, because that was where he intended to be. Just my opinion.
