2 Corinthian 6:14 "Be ye not unequally yoked together with
unbelievers: for what fellowship hath righteousness with
unrighteousness? and what communion hath light with darkness?"
If you have not figure it out already, yes, I'm specially referring to the "Mission statement" entitled "Brot...
@curiousdannii @fredsbend I'm really surprised I don't feature more prominently on those charts.
@fredsbend My thought was, "Why is this not posted as an answer/rebuttal under my meta post?" Then I saw it wasn't even posted on meta...the guy is really confused about what is what (as if his post didn't give that away).
@fredsbend Is that the only bit that didn't make sense? He lost me on the first bit objecting to my statement that "we" all here are not all Christians, then goes on to say his only purpose is proselization. 'Cause that makes sense. After that it's all jost rambles.
@fredsbend I think some Christians get too carried away with proselytizing and assume on first impulse that their job is to proselytize. It makes me chuckle sometimes that they would proselytize indiscriminately.
@DoubleU You need to understand their frame. They believe that there is an eternal destiny for everyone and your choices now while living are your only chance to affect your eternal destiny. So, there is a sense of urgency, or at least, uncertainty (we don't know when people will die).
Essentially, the value of a single soul is infinite, while social acceptance, etiquette, and even human life, does not have equal value.
Which leads to why I believe Christianity is a dangerous religion.
Christians have a reason to die and kill. The non-religious do not.
And we cannot even prove unequivocally that this reason, that there is an eternal soul that needs saving and protection, even exists.
An interesting thing I've wondered is if Annihilationists are apathetic in regards to this. "Yes, an eternal soul is lost, but at least they are not in eternal torment." It seem like there is less pressure to proseltyze.
However, the two annihilationist groups I know of, JW and SDA, are the most in-your-face proselytizers I know.
Not today, no. My two (last!) classes are on Tuesdays and Thursdays and I have a work shift Monday and Wednesday mornings and Saturday night. Add in church on Sundays and Friday is basically my one free-the-whole-day day per week. :P
