  1. The flat earth people were ignorant that the earth was a spherical object. They were ignorant. So people that told them the truth were arrogant? To assume that someone else cannot know something because you do not know it is arrogant. If you do know something that someone else doesn't know and you tell them, does that make you arrogant. Only to those who are sure that no one else can know what they themselves do not know. If I know that God exists, then I would be dishonest to say that he doesn't exist or that I do not know that He exists, would I not? Wow, it didn't take long to break out this misuse of Scripture. Who did he say this to? If you think it was a blanket statement, then you are mistaken. It was written to hypocrites. In fact, Jesus said this: Mat 7:5 Thou hypocrite, first cast out the beam out of thine own eye; and then shalt thou see clearly to cast out the mote out of thy brother's eye. Evidently, the hypocrite was to cast the mote out of his brothers eye after he removed the beam from his own. Hint: Casting out the mote was judging. I do not ascribe to this Calvinism you speak of. And I agree, not sure why they would want to evangelize if God had already chosen who would go to heaven or h ell. Father/son relationship: Joh 1:12 But as many as received him, to them gave he power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on his name: Friends: Joh 15:15 Henceforth I call you not servants; for the servant knoweth not what his lord doeth: but I have called you friends; for all things that I have heard of my Father I have made known unto you. Between religion and relationship. Religion without the relationship is empty, no matter how you follow it. If there is no relationship, then you can alter whatever you want. It is still empty. I mean that Jesus is a real person that we can know on a spiritual level just like we know each other on a physical level. Salvation is not a set of doctrines you sign your name to, it is a relationship to a person.
  2. It didn't seem like anyone wanted my opinion on this matter. And I am sure my answer won't be original. The difference is on the inside of a person. It is about a personal relationship with Jesus Christ, not just religion. If I meet someone and they become a friend to me, can I then turn around and say they don't exist? For those who call me arrogant because I 'know' some things. Isn't the real arrogance from those who say that because they don't know something that noone else can know it either? See. I can be considerate. And I don't know why I have the edit button. I try to watch my spelling any way. It doesn't matter to me though.
  3. Narc- First of all, thanks for the reply. I don't deserve one after my other thread. I am sure that many feel this way. I only know what is real in my life, I can't speak for anyone else, just as you know what is real in your life. You just can't win for losing here can you. I could have easily posted a lot of scripture, but then someone would have slammed me for posting a lot of scripture. I have already been informed that the Bible has no place here, even though it is a forum about ex-Christians, of which true Christianity is based on the Bible.( And yes, I realize that most here don't think that the Christianity of today is actually based on the Bible.) Again. thanks for the responses. I know that I deserve to be ignored. I won't assume that anyone desires comments unless they ask.
  4. Fine. In your opinion, what is a Christian? What qualifies somene to have been a Christian?
  5. According to the Scriptures, once a person becomes a Christian, they will always be a Christian. A person may be religious, and not be a Christian. A person may be Baptized, and not be a Christian, A person may be a Church member, and not be a Christian. When God saves you, He makes you a New Creature (II Cor 5:17), seals you with the Holy Spirit (Eph 1:13), makes you His child (Jn 1:12). etc. He becomes your Father, it is a relationship. Without the relationship, it is just dead religion, which is pretty rotten. I propose that those on this board who are not Christians today, never were Christians. In fact, trying to act like a Christian without being one is one of the worst things you can do. Note: This is my attempt at reasonable dialogue for any who would like to discuss this topic. I am told there are those here who would. I will check back when possible. So if I don't respond, it is because I am away.(This is for those who would accuse me of avoiding a question or comment)
