Well jeepers, what can I say to those who reject One Lord, One Faith, One Baptism, and still manage to describe themselves as "Christians???" Except to remind people that just because President 0bama calls himself a "Christian" and pops out pieties at the drop of a hat doesn't show or mean he actually is one.
Certainly I have attended threads on the Religion Forum, and have done so for a long while now. Many times I have observed things that just made me cringe. But I remain an observer; I do not participate in such disputes.
And the reason why is, for sheer love of God, I actually try to live up to His Great Commandment: To Love God with my whole heart and soul and mind and strength; and my neighbor as myself.
I take the corollary "love my neighbor as myself" to indicate that it is my job to love my brother and sister in Christ, not to "judge" them. I figure Judgment is God's business, not mine. Given His Great Commandment, it seems to me that what my neighbor holds in his heart and soul is a matter between him and God, the absolutely most private relation there could possibly be, that I must respect.
But then, I am a very simple-minded person, keeping this line in mind:
On these two commandments hang all the law and the prophets.Thank you so much for writing, 1010RD, and for your kind words!

Exactly.. the american people have deemed to PUNISH themselves for four more years with BArry Half-White..
I agree with their choice.. they NEED to be PUNISHED..
Punished for far more than 75,000,000+ brutal deaths of their own babies..
But for brutal enslavement of a good bit of the populace..
And.. the wholesale looting of the National Treasury..
There are many more “crimes” to be accounted for than I am willing to number..
Suffice it to say America desperately NEEDS PUNISHMENT..
American voters generally have become political “MASOCHISTS”...
The list of democrat “SADIST” groups are not lacking..
There is a kind of symbiosis in that..
Note: It appears that many of my “neighbors” are a strange lot.. but they know what they want.. and what they want is financial and political PAIN.. SO BE IT!.. They do deserve it..
