Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.

Lynch,

I share your own 'party line' by and large though I may differ on how I communicate about it.

The point is that there are people who are convinced that something that is existential to you wouldn't exist. You are one and they are many. But you have and they don't.

I don't say you are stronger because you'd be right and they wrong. Religion's underpinning is faith, and faith puts you in a spiritually strong position. You have touched existential truth.

Debates that involve existential questions are not like an argument over holidays in the mountains or at the sea being the better alternative.
It's not just facts against facts when you're rooted in a spiritual reality that others have found to be invalid, inexistent or that they've agreed to ignore.

You stand on different ground and make theirs shake. It's a pity when the Truth you've found is clouded by an intellectual cross-fire about religious facts.

Many have ceased to look for what you've found, and this makes your presence by definition annoying though it could be an invitation.

Again you are inventing your own meanings. This practice can occasionally result in poetry, but mostly gibberish.

You can't be me, I'm taken

To illustrate my point -

You had said,

"OK big boy. If you've got a pair (a big IF) why don't you come down into the arena and explain just how I misinterpreted Deuteronomy 13, instead of doing your usual (cheap) sling shooting from a distance? Oh, and don't hesitate to use citations (that is... if you find any) to back up your assertions (that is... if you have any)."

"That just proves what a closed mind you have."

That's OT rhetoric - where the heart didn't see.

It shouldn't be necessary nowadays since we as Christians have received the Holy Spirit through faith.

(I think this thread is closed; I won't take this any further.)

How does his serial misinterpretation of the scripture of his own religion shake anyone else's ground?...

*Lunatic*, n.
One whose delusions are out of fashion.

From what I've seen, Lynch hasn't misinterpreted.

Anything else should be covered in a new diary IMO.

But for the record, let me rephrase my question - which was apparently misunderstood (apparently):
  • Do you know Christian Holy Scripture?
  • If you do... do you believe that it's "Evil"?

2 simple questions Colman. Can you answer them?
