The above is what I have shared with mvp and others. Is this wrong or an attempt to mislead others or claim prophethood? And how was my commentary regarding you and LJ theology? It was a challenge to your admittedly-innocent exploitation of this Master. My goal is to help you see this, so that you both try to understand Him, rather than use him.
Is insulting one another, being mean-spirited and using Jesus to argue for or against science a Christ-like effort? Or are you two shallow in your knowledge of him and using his message to justify yourselves and your existing, acquired beliefs, forsaking that which does not apply to your acquired knowledge?
These are fair questions that I have brought up, for your sakes and not to hurt you or anyone else. But, instead of addressing them, you see them as an attack, cause for fighting and not cause for thinking about your connection to God or science and, depending on whether or not I made a mistake, correcting me if I was wrong or misunderstood you.
It was spoken thusly:
Your yoke does not seem easy or meek and lowly, fellas. It seems heavy and haughty, which is the fault of those who have misled you. I urge you to take a yoke like that of Jesus upon yourselves, recognize it by its ease, fairness, love and peace.
- "Take my yoke upon you, and learn of me; for I am meek and lowly in heart: and ye shall find rest unto your souls. For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light." -Jesus, Matthew 11:30
I am not interested in fighting your denomination, or that of atheists, K4L. I am simply suggesting that you practice your individual faiths in a way that lets you see more than just what you think is "for" or "against" you [in these wise and sacred words]: which is self-justification, self-righteousness.
And Jesus loves all, and his love and grace judged men with fairness, understanding and compassion. Even the apostles did not know Jesus' methods, for he constantly corrected them for their harshness.
Forsake your rules, my brother, and...
