      As long as we know who we are talking too, names do not matter. Unless one wears one's heart on one's sleeve. Or has such a hard heart pills or defibs are needed.

        Bad heart ≠ "hard" heart.
        Bad hearts sometimes need pills and/or defibs to stay functional.

        My MIL needs a pacemaker, for instance.
        I don't know how one could read anything bad in that.

        Excessive masturbation and not being moved to tears are what cause hard hearts. Study-up, Donna.

        Again, this doesn't address what you originally posted, " Or has such a hard heart pills or defibs are needed."

        I don't know why you would even bring that up in a post to Chrissy, unless that was supposed to be an indirect insult at Chrissy's heart condition; surely you would not be so base.

        I don't need to study up on a condition that seems wholly fabricated, Philip. There is no such condition as a "hard heart."

    In order to repent, one must make public confession of ones sins and ones crimes. MLK never did that. Nevertheless, even though a wicked man, he will be resurrected. MLK died for his own sins and has yet to be covered by the ransom of Jesus.

        Um, Philip? I don't need to study the sex lives of men to answer this: "You don’t know what MLK did out of the spotlight; you never will.
        And it doesn’t matter; you are not the judge, anyhow.
        He wasn’t wicked. He was just a man.", which was in direct answer to your "In order to repent, one must make public confession of ones sins and ones crimes. MLK never did that. "

        You don't know that. You cannot know that. The FBI cannot know that.

        Again, the sex lives of these men, although personally repugnant to me, doesn't minimize the achievements; unless, of course, one places too much importance to the organ between his legs over the importance of the organ contained in the skull.

    Jesus has no authority to forgive crimes. Only sins. For example, he forgave the man dying next to him of his sins. But that common criminal still had to pay for his crimes with his own lif.

        My goodness, Philip, I am on my phone.

        So let me see if I have this right: Jesus doesn't forgive crimes, but sins. You stated MLK committed a crime, not a sin; therefore, by your own analogy, MLK is has nothing to be forgiven for, correct?

        And yes, I am aware of the 7th Commandment; so it would seem that he did break God's Commandment.

        Do you think God holds a harsher punishment for an adulterer than one who breaks the 9th, daily, without a public admission for repentance?

        January 24, 2015 at 12:05 am |

    MLK never did publicly admit to cheating on his wife, though he did father many creamy babies. He never did repent. Yet, will still be resurrected back to life on earth and given another chance. For that is how much God loves men. And women. (I guess. lol)

      Does total adherence to Man's laws make a difference to to God?

      Because I have a hard time believing God cares if one rolls through a stop sign in the larger scheme of things, or that He cared about traffic laws when The Word was being handed down to those that recorded them.

    Yes. King David achieved much because even after he had a man murdered in order to sleep with that man's wife, he publicly admitted what he had done and did not say "what is se x". And went on to father the wisest man who ever lived. Solomon, whom Jesus adored most.

    Fareed is being dishonest by implying that the Gita Bhagavad is the ONLY source of law in Hindooism. Many things don't appear directly in Gita Bhagavad but are considered a part of hindoo law and hindutva jurisprudence. The sources second only to Gita B are the Ramayana tales, and as an Indian, Fareed knows this to be true. And in Ramayana several examples are given Lord Shiva ordering the killing of those who mock or satirize him in poetry or other forms. These sanctioned killings forever enshrined the practice of death to blasphemers as a legitimate part of hindutva law. Those who are denying this are being willfully dishonest or are simply ignorant. Here is a small list of examples from the puranas which give these terrorists the backing they need in hinduism for their acts.

      When the Apostle returned to Veranasi after his raid on Benares, word spread that he had killed some of the men who had satirized and insulted him. The poets who were left spread in all directions.
      kama sutra:597

      ‘You obey a stranger who encourages you to murder for booty. You are greedy men. Is there no honor among you?' Upon hearing those lines Lord Shiva said, ‘Will no one rid me of this woman?' Modi, a zealous Hindoo decided to execute Lord Shiva's wishes. That very night he crept into the writer's home while she lay sleeping surrounded by her young children. There was one at her breast. Ganesha removed the suckling babe and then plunged his sword into the poet. The next morning in the mandir, Shiva, who was aware of the assassination, said, ‘You have helped Lord Shiva and His Apostle.' Ganesha said. ‘She had five sons; should I feel guilty?' ‘No,' the pundit answered. ‘Killing her was as meaningless as two goats butting heads.'

    One is a pariah if you are a pedophile like Modi. Plus India and Modi have subjugated and massacred and keep on massacring minorities including sikhs and moslems and Christians and Jews. The memories of India's leader Gandhi siding with Hitler and holocaust of Jews is still fresh in our minds. The filth Indian hindus have spewed below is unforgivable.
