  1. Your rebuttal overlooks the claim that the all-knowing god is also all-powerful, so that, in addition to knowing who will return to him, he should also be capable of causing said return without your help and in spite of our best efforts to the contrary. So, his omnipotence brings us back to you not being needed. I think your choice of words reveals a lot more than you meant for it to. "But what if I get somebody to return to the Living God..." "He'd have known that I would come..." "that I would help somebody..." "And I believe that is no coincidence that I felt moved..." It says a lot about you that you say a lot about you. You are trying awfully hard to be needed, bless your heart; but if your god is all he's cracked up to be, then he really doesn't need you, or me, or any of us... except maybe florduh.
  2. This fails to answer the question of why the holy spirit would move you to come here and try to win us back. Obviously the majority of us are still alive, myself included; yet the holy spirit felt compelled to compel you to come. While we were all still alive. If the god you believe in knows us, who we are, and who we will become, as you claimed before, then he already knows which of us would die in apostasy and which of us would submit to a deathbed conversion. He already knows which of us will be "saved" and which would be lost. He would therefore not need you to come here and try to win some of us back; and certainly not at this point when we're all still alive. Furthermore, given that we are all still alive, and, in your own words, it doesn't matter until we die, why would we need you to come here and try to win some of us back? None of us would require your services until the moment that old reaper man come a-knockin'. So, explain to me again what exactly it is you're doing here? Besides obviously contradicting yourself.
  3. Babbler, You claimed earlier that you came here because "I felt like the Holy Spirit has moved me to try and win some of you back into His Kingdom". Now, however, you put forth the claim that it doesn't matter if we are christians or not because "god already knows what we are, who we are, and who we will become." If the label by which we are identified is merely a "social construct that we use to define ourselves"; then, why, indeed, does it matter whether we are christians or ex-christians? However, if the holy spirit moved you, that's a different beast altogether. If the holy spirit moved you, then obviously it does matter to god whether we are christians or ex-christians. Moreover, you wouldn't be here trying to win some of us back if you didn't agree with the holy spirit. Which means you do think it matters, despite making the contradictory claim that it doesn't. So, which is it? Does it matter whether we are christians, or does it not? Have a good day, TheRedneckProfessor
  4. And He looked up and saw the rich putting their gifts into the treasury, 2 and He saw also a certain poor widow putting in two mites. 3 So He said, “Truly I say to you that this poor widow has put in more than all; 4 for all these out of their abundance have put in offerings for God, but she out of her poverty put in all the livelihood that she had.” Luke 21:1-4 Ironic that you would be putting your "Two Cents" into this forum, isn't it?
  5. I think you have inadvertently discovered the "No True Irishman" fallacy. In essence, it is the converse of the "No True Scotsman" fallacy. Whereas most christians might claim that we were never true christians to begin with, babbler attempts to claim that we are not true ex-christians. As fallacies go, this one doesn't get as much air time as it should.
  6. It seems the lord didn't really want this debate to take place. Perhaps he knew how it would end; and, being all powerful and all-knowing and such, chose to perform the powerful miracle of using ordinary life circumstances to alter the course of history. Anyway, I hope both of y'all sinful sons of bitches learned something here.
  7. You seem like a real fungi, there, babbler. I'd wager our "demons" will last longer than you. Welcome anyway; enjoy your stay. If you have any questions, feel free to PM me. Have a good day, TRP.
  8. My question would be if you're as arrogant about everything else in your life as you are about your religion.
  9. Stop lying, Jon. BAA has already borne witness to your toothache. Admit that it's true. I suspect you're just angry at teeth and want to gum your food.
  10. If testimony is solid enough evidence for jesus; then why shouldn't we believe BAA's testimony concerning your toothache? You obviously have one; because BAA said you did.
  11. LB, I wish you the best medical science has to offer.
  12. You don't need it because: 1. You're not supposed to run away. 2. god has your back.
  13. No. That was just me poking fun at all of the tags in a single post. Tagging myself so that I would feel like I belong. Not all of my humor works out in the real world, sadly; so don't take it to heart if you didn't catch it.
  14. @TheRedneckProfessor I just wanted you to feel like you belong, too, buddy.
  15. I was going to make a snarky quip about christians having balls; but then I remembered you're only playing Devil's Advocate here. Never mind me.
