Someday, they'll get to ask God Himself if their theory was right.
Okay, note to self:
Remember to have no respect for the 'American Academy of Religion'.
Also, remember to laugh at them regularly.
O Brave New World to have such people in it. (rolleyes)
(Jer 20:7 KJV) O LORD, thou hast deceived me, and I was deceived: thou art stronger than I, and hast prevailed: I am in derision daily, every one mocketh me.
(Jer 20:8 KJV) For since I spake, I cried out, I cried violence and spoil; because the word of the LORD was made a reproach unto me, and a derision, daily.
(Jer 20:9 KJV) Then I said, I will not make mention of him, nor speak any more in his name. But his word was in mine heart as a burning fire shut up in my bones, and I was weary with forbearing, and I could not stay.
(Jer 20:10 KJV) For I heard the defaming of many, fear on every side. Report, say they, and we will report it. All my familiars watched for my halting, saying, Peradventure he will be enticed, and we shall prevail against him, and we shall take our revenge on him.
(Jer 20:11 KJV) But the LORD is with me as a mighty terrible one: therefore my persecutors shall stumble, and they shall not prevail: they shall be greatly ashamed; for they shall not prosper: their everlasting confusion shall never be forgotten.
(Jer 20:12 KJV) But, O LORD of hosts, that triest the righteous, and seest the reins and the heart, let me see thy vengeance on them: for unto thee have I opened my cause.
(Jer 20:13 KJV) Sing unto the LORD, praise ye the LORD: for he hath delivered the soul of the poor from the hand of evildoers.
(Jer 20:14 KJV) Cursed be the day wherein I was born: let not the day wherein my mother bare me be blessed.
(Jer 20:15 KJV) Cursed be the man who brought tidings to my father, saying, A man child is born unto thee; making him very glad.
(Jer 20:16 KJV) And let that man be as the cities which the LORD overthrew, and repented not: and let him hear the cry in the morning, and the shouting at noontide;
(Jer 20:17 KJV) Because he slew me not from the womb; or that my mother might have been my grave, and her womb to be always great with me.
(Jer 20:18 KJV) Wherefore came I forth out of the womb to see labour and sorrow, that my days should be consumed with shame?
Ummm, This is an S&M account?
I quit going to church and only go to home bible studies.
Um... how very, very bizarre.
Sounds like the Cult of Clintonism, religion of sex.
I think these people are in for a very rude awakening when they meet their Maker. They are purposefully twisting His Word to validate and excuse their own sin. "Ignorance" will be no excuse!
GAK! These folks need to get REAL jobs and actually WORK for a living! They obviously have WAY too much time on their hands.
This garbage is one of the reasons Islam is spreading so fast.
These nuts should be defrocked and expelled from the Christian Churches.
