... Quoting: Reiz
With all due respect to everyone... I did actually provide videos that have citations in them way back on the first page. S far it appears that almost every christian response I've gotten back embodies the exact mentality displayed in the context video which I will now repost here even though I know in ll likelyhood few will watch it because tehy already think they know the answers:
Hey OP had you actually read my post you would have known I watched the video. I'm out, I can't get dragged into another one of these.
Doesn't change the fact that no one seems t care about the context of the good
things now does it? Only the stuff that makes it look bad. I meanI could take some of the good stuff, make some context, and make it sound bad. Like lets say "the Meek will inherit the earth" Well I cold easily say that the meek are those who never ever questioned the authority of God and thus are those who were never killed, damned, etc. which basically means they're just the ones who were willing beaten down slaves.
I could also say that the meek are those who held their tongues and were not boisterous about their works and boisterous about their faith and just kept to themselves amidst all the hatred around them. And thus the meek are the very balanced, peaceful people whom inherit the earth after all the rest are gone.
Two interpretations of the same thing. One good nd one bad. And you can do this with literally any part of the bible, turn it good or bad with interpretation. S why is it that no one cares about the stuff that sounds good at first glance but all the bad at fist glance stuff is open to interpretation?
the answer is quite simple, the supposed christian only wants to feel a sense of self confidence and superiority. That's why all the bad stuff is selected for and "interpreted" as being good whereas the good stuff is just acccepted without question.
The pattern of behavior I see here pretty well backs that up. Although not from everyone, there's been a couple "meeks" amongst the crowd here that no one seemed to notice for the most part.
