Re: Warning against institutionalized religious Dogma.
Tansy: This thread has become a show trial.
Ed: If so, it's purely because your friend Rainy initiated it and you became her little religious enabler side kick.
Tansy: How can I get through to you she was trying to save your soul when you only pick out the parts of the Bible that suit you.
Ed: That's an incoherent statement. First i already fully understand that you believe she was trying to "help" me and to "save my soul" so you really don't need to keep repeating this. Honestly Tansy i got it the first time that this is what you believe. Secondly, have you figured out yet that i was trying to help her and to save her soul by speaking truth to her, helping her to break free of the religious cult to which she belongs, and teaching her how to behave like a decent human being? If you are genuinely not biased as you say, then why do you keep saying that she was trying to save my soul, but you have never stated that i am trying to save hers?
Third, do you mean that i need to believe the Heavenly Father endorses slavery and rape among other atrocities and absurdities in order to understand completely unrelated concepts? Do you mean that i have to forfeit true Holy Spirit discernment and to instead blindly place my trust in catholic originated false dogma the way you have done? I will bet you that i know your bible vastly more than you do Tansy, so much so that i know your religious Cult has lied to you when it told you that it was a 100% God breathed, inerrant, infallible book that is "the final authority". This catholic dogma lie is quite simply religious propaganda exactly like that of another Cult known as Islam which by no coincidence at all also proclaims the cultish lie that they have a 100% God breathed book.
I am so sorry that you are in idolatry to the counterfeit religious system's bible and that you love that book more than you love God Himself. If you loved God more than the bible, then you would be defending Him against the bible's slanderous false accusations against Him. Also your idolatry to the bible and your misplaced loyalty to that book instead of to God Himself renders you unable to correctly discern the obvious which is that parts of it are false.
Tansy: There's not much point in communication between us anymore...
Ed: This part i agree with.
Tansy: as I am on a much higher plane than you when it comes to the Bible...
Ed: And this part i don't.
