This all sounds like spamming to me.

If you don't have anything to contribute to the discussion I suggest you opt out.

Wow! How very clueless.

Human beings like guessing. . . and then some get it and some do not . . so it is not so much about getting it . . .but also in the road getting there.

Or, as my grandfather used to say:

"A man can only make a fool of himself."

not really because it is the judgment of the people that is of real importance here. And some may judge differently . . and then . . .some may be wrong. . . .so i will rather say . . .lack of wisdom makes someone a fool.

Not everyone can read red text. Against a grey backdrop, it's even worse.

Being special, I am sure this will distress you, but black is the better colour.

I didn't see a member being abused. I did see people taking a poster to task for the things he said, and attempting to get some sense out of him. That has been a failed mission, as he seems to have no sense to offer.

You could try using the quote function, at least.

Mod Warning Johanabrahams, please use the quote function rather than 'distinguishing your words from those you quote by the use of colours, all-caps or any other method. This forum has some members who are blind or of limited sight capability, many of whom use aids such as screen readers. If quotes are not inside quote boxes, those people will be unable to read and understand the thread.

You can either just use the quote button to the bottom left of each post, or you can manually copy and paste the material you want and put it between the quote tags [ quote] and [ /quote] (without the spaces). If you are unsure, please ask for help.

There have been some reports that this thread doesn't have a coherent topic. At the moment I will allow it to carry on in the hope that a topic will arise naturally.

Are you and Johanabrahams "on the same page" in terms of your thinking about religion and God? I'd really appreciate it if the two of you would discuss and compare! I would undoubtedly learn something.

If by on the same page you mean willing to exchange ideas in an atmosphere of congeniality and respect, even if, nay ESPECIALLY if we do not see eye to eye?

Then hell yes!

Thanks for asking!

Interesting. That seems to be a 'no' to Giordanos' question. Especially since you seem to be incapable of congeniality and respect.

Excellent example! I'm amazed at your lack of congeniality and respect!

That's Ok now. As God, the Alpha and the Omega, the creator of all things, I forgive you.

That is exactly what I mean. Fabulous! Please go ahead and ignore us nay-sayers! It seems like a great opportunity for you to avoid bogging down in tit for tat arguments with people such as myself and instead engaging in a wide ranging and productive exploration of religion and of God's love.

From time to time I have questioned TBD as to how his posting style relates to Christian values as I understand them. But right now I look forward to this discussion between two committed theologists.

Well it would be easier if you perhaps policed up your fellow travelers' hilariously over the top irony.

FT: TBD is incapable of congeniality and respect!
TBD: well that statement is ironic
FT: see he is incapable of congeniality and respect because he called out my comment as ironic!
The world: face palm.
Gio: I have questioned TBD as to how his posting style relates to Christian values
Jesus: wept

The topic is God's love, not me. Lets talk about Love.

Ahh. A shame. God to know. God loves, his followers are free to hate. Such.. Loving.

I'll take myself any day. I may not be a loving God, but I also don't compel my followers to LoveHate in my name.

But do remember: Bacon is Love. Love is Bacon.

And you have a moderator directive not to do that but use the quote function and quote tags.

Just be advised , it is not generally a good idea to ignore a moderator warning and directive.

Johanabrahams, it occurs to me that perhaps you have not figured out how to slice up a quote and thus to address it piece by piece.

You can do this quite nicely by using tags. First enter the entire quotation into your reply, as you've been doing. Then, in the reply space, when you want to interrupt the quote with your rejoinder, enter {/quote}, your reply, and then {quote}. Do this each time you want to interject a reply inside a quote. Note that in order not to accidentally put tags in this post, I have replaced the square brackets with curly ones. For the actual practice of this, enclose the tags in square brackets.

Hope all goes well.

I do not know if I will be able to write over the weekend.
Don''t then.
Quote:
Will miss you all but will be back on Monday if I do not get any chance to write over this weekend.

Love Johan
The result, as you can see, is fairly orderly. As for whether it is coherent, well...that's a different matter.

O.K. Let's talk.

…or this other?:
“And you, Capernaum, will you be lifted up to heaven? No, you will descend to Hades! For if the miracles that were performed in you had happened in Sodom, it would have remained to this day. But I tell you that it will be more bearable for Sodom on the day of judgment than for you.” (Matthew 11:23-24)

The god of the Old Testament is a destruction machine: jealous, hateful, violent... even with children and animals. The Jesus of the gospels is love... for those that believe in him. For the others the Judgement Day is coming... soon "and shall cast them into the furnace of fire: there shall be wailing and gnashing of teeth." (Matthew 13:50)

What strange kinds of love... What of these call you "love"?
Are you sure that you want to talk about God's love? I am waiting two days and you say nothing.

You are feeling the love, that's how it feels.
