Hi folks,

I won't likely post here because from the genuine questions I believe I have asked, the replies are really disappointing at a basic level.

There is no attempt at logical reasoning, or an attempt to address points. It seems to boil down to either direct questions about the Christian faith are taken personally and ignored or else given some one liner smart mouth response as if that is a genuine reply

[EDITED{

I honestly did come here to ask you why Christians had reasons to believe, but sadly I believe my time has been wasted.

[EDITED]

So I wish you all the best in what you believe.

[EDITED]

(PS - do you always think that seekers will come quietly, and friendly and on your terms?

[EDITED]

Thanks, and all the best.

Bryan

Luckily for me God doesnt care about my IQ or my lack of recognition.  Farewell
All glory to him who loves us and has freed us from our sins by shedding his blood for us.  He has made us a Kingdom of priests for God his Father. All glory and power to him forever and ever! Amen.

Actually you're completely wrong. "Study to show thyself approved" and that implies intelligence.

But even your one liner PROVES the points I made earlier - don't you see that? You have no logic, no reason, nothing....NADA.

But the basic problem is you're missing it ALL. You are COMMANDED to be loving. You are COMMANDED to pray for me and love me - and your reply is to flip me off because YOU don't like what I say.

If you want to be respected, you should show respect. That's true whether you're a Christian or not.

I was only commenting that God doesnt require a certain level of intelligence or recognition to enter paradise and bid you farewell since you said you were leaving.  Tough crowd...

Sigh.

This thread has been cleaned up and I tried to leave some semblance of the original discussion.

I have no problem discussing difference of beliefs and opinions on this forum, but personal attacks will not be tolerated.

Not necessarily. Some people are unable to offer learned discourse on why they believe. They just know that they do.

That doesn't give people with learning disabilities much of an opportunity to 'be a Christian'. I know several people with autism, Asperger's and other similar issues but they are a) intelligent and b) able to give a fairly cogent explanation as to why they believe.

Oh. Wondered what was going on. And it was only a day or two ago you said this forum required 'little or no' moderation! But well done you!
