I have a myth about Christianity to debunk, and that's that True Christians don't have dark, secret lives. Don't believe me? Then try Googling "Ezekiel Flint" "broken man". When you click the link that Google brings up, Statement From Ezekiel Flint - The Landover Baptist Church Forums, you'll get a notice saying that you don't have access to that page.

Then click the cached page link and learn the real story behind the hidden pages of Landover. Broken man, indeed.

What in the world are you talking about, friend? I performed that very search, and I got:

Your search - "Ezekiel Flint" "broken man" - did not match any documents.

Suggestions:
  • Make sure all words are spelled correctly.
  • Try different keywords.
  • Try more general keywords.
  • Try fewer keywords.

I imagine in a few hours, that search might bring up this thread, but nothing that suggests Pastor Zeke is not on the level. Where would you get an idea like that?

Maybe he's talking about my broken watch. It got damaged somehow the other day. I backhanded sister BTB after she forgot the onions on my sandwich, maybe it happened then.

Anyway, thanks for the concern, but it isn't a "deep dark secret." Sister Thumper took it to the Rolex dealer. It should be out of the shop in a few days. I have others, so it's really not much of a crisis.

What a surprise. A Jewnitarian minister just making stuff up to suit his personal beliefs. Truly pathetic.

If he insists on launching these baseless attacks against Pastor Zeke or other True Christians, the moderators should quarantine his sorry behind.

What right have any of us to judge others and be so hateful. Christians are not called to hate others. Jesus emphasized loving others more than anything. It deeply saddens me to see the message that Landover is sending to anyone who doesn't understand true Christianity. It is not a fair representation and I am quite prepared to defend my Savior and His messages. Please send me a private message if you disagree with me, which I am sure most of you do, and I would be more than happy to discuss it with you.

What do you make, then, of Matthew 10:37, in which Jesus said, He that loveth father or mother more than me is not worthy of me: and he that loveth son or daughter more than me is not worthy of me? I read that as saying that salvation is more important than love.

Quote:

Here's an example of true Christianity: When the city of Capernaum refused to turn to Christ, despite the many wonders he had worked there, he said:

...thou, Capernaum, which art exalted unto heaven, shalt be brought down to hell: for if the mighty works, which have been done in thee, had been done in Sodom, it would have remained until this day. But I say unto you, That it shall be more tolerable for the land of Sodom in the day of judgment, than for thee. Matthew 11:23-24

It doesn't get more truly Christian than when Jesus said it himself, don't you think?

Quote:

Excellent. I await your "defense" of Matthew 10:37 and Matthew 11:23-24. I've got some more sayings of Jesus to discuss, but those can wait until you've helped me to understand these two.

1. "Jesus was all about peace."

peace in body, war in the heart

2. "Jesus loves everyone."

He does. But he loves with fire and water.

3. "Christians aren't allowed to judge anyone."

You have been given free will. But if you have judged one person he will judge you twice.

4. "Christians hate you if they rebuke you."

Only jesus knows how to love. You only love to receive. You even preach to receive your just reward. Jesus loves without reward.

5. "Jesus did away with the Old Testament law."

Yes he did. But he was not so silly to say it in front of them all and get nailed to the cross before his time.

6. "You need only believe in Jesus to get into heaven."

YES YES YES YES YES YES YES YES... this is all you must do. But you do not know what belief is. He will come and you will deny him to his face. You must believe him when he comes. Anyone can believe he existed.

7. "You don't need to believe everything in the Bible."

The bible matter not. Words matter not. Believe what jesus says when he comes and you are saved. Come to him and repent. And you are saved.

8. "Jesus will forgive every single one of your sins if you repent."

Only if you repent in your heart and look at him in the eye. Not one person will not make the mistake of repenting in the mind first. For only jesus knows the heart. And he will teach you the heart when he comes.

9. "Babies always go to Heaven if they die."

I tell you. No one has gone to heaven yet who has been born on this earth.

Enjoy these truths and goodbye

Wrong! Jesus will return with a sword and execute billions.

Revelation 19

15 And out of his mouth goeth a sharp sword, that with it he should smite the nations: and he shall rule them with a rod of iron: and he treadeth the winepress of the fierceness and wrath of Almighty God.

16 And he hath on his vesture and on his thigh a name written, KING OF KINGS, AND LORD OF LORDS.
Quote:

2. "Jesus loves everyone."

He does. But he loves with fire and water.
Wrong again. Jesus loves those who follow Him. Everyone else is cast into Hell to be burned alive for ever and ever. Does that sound like "love" to you?

Quote:

3. "Christians aren't allowed to judge anyone."

You have been given free will. But if you have judged one person he will judge you twice.
More wrongness! We are commanded to judge with righteous judgment.

Leviticus 19:15

Ye shall do no unrighteousness in judgment: thou shalt not respect the person of the poor, nor honor the person of the mighty: but in righteousness shalt thou judge thy neighbour.
Quote:

4. "Christians hate you if they rebuke you."

Only jesus knows how to love. You only love to receive. You even preach to receive your just reward. Jesus loves without reward.
Nope. Christians rebuke out of love. We will do anything we must to you -- browbeat, flog, torture, burn alive -- to help you find Jesus, so you will not have to spend an eternity in Hell. THAT'S what Christian Love is all about!

Quote:

Jesus did away with the Old Testament law."

Yes he did. But he was not so silly to say it in front of them all and get nailed to the cross before his time.
Wrong again!

Matthew 5

17 Think not that I am come to destroy the law, or the prophets: I am not come to destroy, but to fulfil.

18 or verily I say unto you, Till heaven and earth pass, one jot or one tittle shall in no wise pass from the law, till all be fulfilled.
Quote:

6. "You need only believe in Jesus to get into heaven."

YES YES YES YES YES YES YES YES... this is all you must do. But you do not know what belief is. He will come and you will deny him to his face. You must believe him when he comes. Anyone can believe he existed.
NO NO NO NO NO NO . . . Wrong again.

You must believe in Him and follow His commands . . . repent of all sin and follow the entire Law, not just the bits you like.

Romans 2

12 For as many as have sinned without law shall also perish without law: and as many as have sinned in the law shall be judged by the law;

13 For not the hearers of the law are just before God, but the doers of the law shall be justified.

Quote:

7. "You don't need to believe everything in the Bible."

The bible matter not. Words matter not. Believe what jesus says when he comes and you are saved. Come to him and repent. And you are saved.
Wrong! How do you know God but by His Word? Are you going to hope that you are still alive when Jesus comes? If you die beforehand, too late! Hell for you!

Matthew 24:42
Watch therefore: for ye know not what hour your Lord doth come.

And you will not have been counted among His followers anyway, because you did not rest on faith, but waited for "empirically testable evidence"!

Luke 13

23 Then said one unto him, Lord, are there few that be saved? And he said unto them,

24 Strive to enter in at the strait gate: for many, I say unto you, will seek to enter in, and shall not be able.

25 When once the master of the house is risen up, and hath shut to the door, and ye begin to stand without, and to knock at the door, saying, Lord, Lord, open unto us; and he shall answer and say unto you, I know you not whence ye are:

26 Then shall ye begin to say, We have eaten and drunk in thy presence, and thou hast taught in our streets.

27 But he shall say, I tell you, I know you not whence ye are; depart from me, all ye workers of iniquity.

28 There shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth, when ye shall see Abraham, and Isaac, and Jacob, and all the prophets, in the kingdom of God, and you yourselves thrust out.

Quote:

8. "Jesus will forgive every single one of your sins if you repent."

Only if you repent in your heart and look at him in the eye. Not one person will not make the mistake of repenting in the mind first. For only jesus knows the heart. And he will teach you the heart when he comes.
Hmmm. I think you got one partly right.

But, do you know what it means to "repent"? You didn't explain it, so I will. It means not only to sincerely be sorry for offending God with your petty sins, but to realize how much you hurt Him by disobeying Him, and never ever sinning again.

It's not repentance if you say "Gee, I'm sorry, let me do three Hail Marys" and then go out and do it again next weekend.
Quote:

9. "Babies always go to Heaven if they die."

I tell you. No one has gone to heaven yet who has been born on this earth.
That doesn't even answer the question. Babies have been born on earth if they die. :dunce:

However, a baby lacks the understanding to accept Jesus. Therefore, babies cannot go to Heaven.

Re: Debunking common myths about Christianity
 
The greatest ungodly myth I've encountered, is probably that Jesus is quoted to say "Hate the sin but love the sinner.".
Nowhere in the holy Bible does it say this!
It is a lie spread by sinners in order to trick people into loving them!
(...and when the sinners couldn't pin this quote to Jesus Christ, the tried to say that Ghandi said it.)

This was first said by Bishop Augustine, in his book City of God (page 304):
“It is clear, then, that the man who does not live according to man but according to God must be a lover of the good and therefore a hater of evil; since no man is wicked by nature but is wicked only by some defect, a man who lives according to God owes it to the wicked men that his hatred be perfect, so that, neither hating the man because of his corruption nor loving the corruption because of the man, he should hate the sin but love the sinner. For, once the corruption has been cured, then all that is left should be loved and nothing remains to be hated.”

Augustine is talking about perfecting your hatred, so that you can hate someone because of HIS SINS, so that ONCE THE SINNER HAS BEEN SAVED, you are able to love the FORMER sinner.

Cum dilectione hominum et odio vitiorum, which translates roughly as "With love for mankind and hatred of sins." Not so much what you are claiming.

Love the sinner hate the sin is a direct quote from Ghandi's autobiography.

The ten Commandments! They say that we are not to be as humansit, yet the foundation of the ten cemmandments is of a humansit nature. No killing, no covanting, ect. Jesus was a humanist. Love others as I have loved you!

Here's something to think about.

Pharisee: A group of jews who strictly follow the laws of Moses. Moses' law being the ten commandments. Jesus had only one, why wasn't our very own saviors commandment added? /\
Even more so, if following the ten commandments is that of a Jew, which is essentially a Jewish custom, then doesn't that means those who follow the ten commandments are jews as well. yet I doubt you were born a Jew. So I guess your a false jew, as it says. Oddly enough if You are a Jew and are a Christian then I guess you have two masters, like christians do, Moses and Jesus.

There's a fine line between good and evil, and I'll ba D/\mned is anyone knows where it is. :jesus:

So you're saying that humanists believe in keeping the Sabbath holy?

Here's something to think about.

Quote:

Pharisee: A group of jews who strictly follow the laws of Moses. Moses' law being the ten commandments.
The Pharisees were the sect of Judaism that believed that what some rabbi said was more important than what God said.

Quote:

Jesus had only one, why wasn't our very own saviors commandment added?
If ye keep my commandments, ye shall abide in my love; even as I have kept my Father's commandments, and abide in his love. John 15:10 (Jesus speaking)

Nevertheless, you raise an interesting point here. Jesus does tell us to love each other as He loved us in John 15:12. We at Landover agree. Jesus, for example, doomed people to suffer in Hell (Matthew 10:28), caused the annihilation of entire communities (Mark 6:11), called people vicious names (Matthew 12:34) and told people to reject their non-Christian families (Matthew 19:29). In Matthew 10:36, He told us that he had come not to send peace, but a sword. Well, we at Landover aren't here to send peace. We're weilding the sword that Jesus gave us.

Quote:

Even more so, if following the ten commandments is that of a Jew, which is essentially a Jewish custom, then doesn't that means those who follow the ten commandments are jews as well.
Uh, no. I follow many of the teachings of Sarah Palin, but that doesn't make me a member of the Alaska Independence Party, does it?

Quote:

So I guess your a false jew, as it says. Oddly enough if You are a Jew and are a Christian then I guess you have two masters, like christians do, Moses and Jesus.
Jews don't look to Moses as their master. They look to rabbis. We Christians don't look to Moses as a master, either; he was a great man and a prophet of the Lord, even if he was a Christ-killing Jew. So we respect Moses, and we are sorry that, since He did not accept Christ as his savior, Moses is burning in Hell right now.

Quote:

There's a fine line between good and evil, and I'll ba D/\mned is anyone knows where it is.
Everybody knows. All human beings became aware of the distinction between good and evil when Adam and Eve ate the forbidden fruit in the garden of Eden.

Re: Debunking common myths about Christianity
 
as far as the pharisee reply, nice how you avoided the concept of the ten commandments being what they followed.

As for that sword, it was a metaphorical sword of the Kabballah. Abrahams other religion, ever heard of it. Guess not.

False jews: nice deflection.

The Rabbi look to Moses! If Moses wasn't a master then you wouldn't be following the ten commandments.

Where in the Bible does it say that the "ten commandments" are more important than any other rules in the Bible? What is commonly called the "ten commandments" is nothing more than the first ten laws of Moses.

Quote:

Yeah, it's metaphoric. :rolleyes: please point out the scripture that mentions the Kabballah. As far as I can tell it's just some silly new age bull made popular by Madonna.

Exodus 20:5 Thou shalt not bow down thyself to them, nor serve them: for I the LORD thy God am a jealous God, visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children unto the third and fourth generation of them that hate me;

Let's look at the ten commandments shall we? Everyone turn to Exodus 20

3Thou shalt have no other gods before me.
Well that's definitely a Humanist point of view, isn't it. :sarcasm:

4Thou shalt not make unto thee any graven image, or any likeness of any thing that is in heaven above, or that is in the earth beneath, or that is in the water under the earth. 5Thou shalt not bow down thyself to them, nor serve them: for I the LORD thy God am a jealous God, visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children unto the third and fourth generation of them that hate me;
Oh right, and having God punish your children to the third and fourth generation? That's humanist as well?

7Thou shalt not take the name of the LORD thy God in vain; for the LORD will not hold him guiltless that taketh his name in vain.
Well so far you're batting 0/3. Unless there's a reason humanists would care about blaspheming God.

8Remember the sabbath day, to keep it holy.
Wow, 0/4, you're doing really well here, aren't you :rofl:

12Honour thy father and thy mother: that thy days may be long upon the land which the LORD thy God giveth thee.
Why would a humanist tell people to honor their father and mother? Especially if the parents were Christian, I doubt it would be so that God would give them a long life.

13Thou shalt not kill.
14Thou shalt not commit adultery.
15Thou shalt not steal.
16Thou shalt not bear false witness against thy neighbour.

I'll give you these 4, but they're mostly common sense. Although I don't think humanists are all that much against adultery or lying if "it's for the right reasons".


17Thou shalt not covet thy neighbour's house, thou shalt not covet thy neighbour's wife, nor his manservant, nor his maidservant, nor his ox, nor his ass, nor any thing that is thy neighbour's.
Since when are humanists against coveting? I thought they claimed that coveting was what made the world go round.

So there you go 4/10 if I give you leeway, but according to you their based on humanist beliefs. Care to try and weasel your way out of this one?

Re: Debunking common myths about Christianity
 
No gods before me, didn't jesus imply he was god! commandment broke

No graven image. Marbel wood or stone, and even dueteronomy it says the image of man as well. Basically every cross with and without Jesus. Commandment broke.

Work on the Sabbath. Jesus offered Pharisee bread, remember. Commandment broke.

Adultry. Stoning the woman. Jesus saved and forgave her. Basically breaking the commandment with acceptance.

False witness against neighbor. Jesus chose to stay in his cabin. He knew what was in their hearts, presented an opinion a witness within.

Murder, if it be in his heart. Jesus allowed himself to be killed, he wanted death or he would have fought. commandment broke.

Honor thy mother and father? What about those that will slay the father and rebuke the mother?

Gods name in vain. All things have gods name writting upon them. And if god provides all things then those things are all the creature and plants in creation. So tell me how many of these things did you have to kill for your comfort. Cause you took them all in vain for your sense of self importance.

I may be unorthadoxed, but i know god a h3ll of a lot better than you think.

Who exactly do you think you're playing with, boy? We aren't just any fluffy bunny christian that you're going to mix up by throwing this stuff at us.

First of all, you claimed the 10 commandments were humanist, now your moving the goal posts? Please go back to your original statement and explain how they're humanist. Also please reference this Kaballa crap out of the KJV Bible, just because your dumb enough to follow Hellyweird trends, doesn't mean we are.

Jesus didn't imply anything, he openly stated it.
John 10:30 I and my Father are one.

Back up the Deuteronomy scripture please. As for the crosses, we don't bow down and worship them. I have a stuffed bird over my mantel as well, are you going to claim I worship it? Although looking at it, it does need dusting.

Work on the Sabbath. Jesus offered Pharisee bread, remember. Commandment broke.
Matthew 12:10-12 And, behold, there was a man which had his hand withered. And they asked him, saying, Is it lawful to heal on the sabbath days? that they might accuse him. And he said unto them, What man shall there be among you, that shall have one sheep, and if it fall into a pit on the sabbath day, will he not lay hold on it, and lift it out? How much then is a man better than a sheep? Wherefore it is lawful to do well on the sabbath days.

Mark 3:4 And he saith unto them, Is it lawful to do good on the sabbath days, or to do evil? to save life, or to kill? But they held their peace.

John 9:16 Therefore said some of the Pharisees, This man is not of God, because he keepeth not the sabbath day. Others said, How can a man that is a sinner do such miracles? And there was a division among them.

Quote:

Adultry. Stoning the woman. Jesus saved and forgave her. Basically breaking the commandment with acceptance.
The commandment is against committing adultery, how exactly is forgiving the woman a sin? Anyway, he told her to Go and sin no more.
John 8:11 She said, No man, Lord. And Jesus said unto her, Neither do I condemn thee: go, and sin no more.

Jesus had a cabin? Could you please point that out in the Bible?

Jesus committed murder by being the ultimate sacrifice? :huh:

Could you please point out the scripture that backs your statements up. All you've done is come on here and give us the ramblings of a mad man. Are you saying that killing a carrot is evil? Are you a breatharian?

You have no idea what you are talking about, I really doubt you've ever opened a Bible in your life. You're just another one of the demon possessed who come on here and tell us that your demon is really God talking to you personally.

2nd Timothy 3:16 All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness:

Deuteronomy 4:2 Ye shall not add unto the word which I command you, neither shall ye diminish ought from it, that ye may keep the commandments of the LORD your God which I command you.

Revelation 22:18-19 For I testify unto every man that heareth the words of the prophecy of this book, If any man shall add unto these things, God shall add unto him the plagues that are written in this book: And if any man shall take away from the words of the book of this prophecy, God shall take away his part out of the book of life, and out of the holy city, and from the things which are written in this book.

Re: Debunking common myths about Christianity
 
I didn't say forgiving the woman was a sin, however when most of the commandments are broke they have the single consequence of killing the accused. So in fact Jesus denied their customs. And in turn broke their commandment for the simple reason they were denied action.

No God before me, he openly stated it? And that changes what?

Mother and father! Yeah it is in the bible too. Luke 12 depending on the bible depens on the words. which reminds me since when does gods word need to be edited?

As for gods name written on all things, are you saying someone else created them? If you people can't take into account the environment around you then what good are you?

By not stoning one harlot? Boy, Jesus was God's only begotten Son. I think He can do whatever He wants to.

Jesus is God. If they are one, how can Jesus be holding Himself up higher than God?

Jesus also defers to the Father incarnation many times.

Mark 13:32 But of that day and that hour knoweth no man, no, not the angels which are in heaven, neither the Son, but the Father.

Matthew 26:39
O my Father, if it be possible, let this cup pass from me: nevertheless not as I will, but as thou wilt.

God wanted to include the rest of the world for Salvation. Everyone who wasn't born Jewish or didn't accidentally do all the right things before Jesus is burning in hell now.

Roman, you seem to be on the right path to Salvation, but you need to come to the correct conclusions first. Stick with reading the Bible instead of all the things peripheral to it to disproving it.

Just sit down and actually read it again cover to cover. It will open your eyes.

Jesus didn't "deny their customs". He saw through their subterfuge. They themselves were guilty of a few things that they didn't mention when they accused the woman of adultery. Jesus said that stuff about "he who is without sin" because He knew exactly which sins they were carrying in their pockets.

And when He let the woman go, He wasn't breaking any commandments. He forgave the woman, which He could do, because He was (and is) the sinless, perfect, Son of God. He already had the right to forgive sins as God, and as a sinless person, He could challenge all the others who were in sin. He made the decision to let the woman go, because He alone was judge, jury, executioner, and defense lawyer.

The woman got off because her lawyer made a deal with the judge to pay her sin penalty of death. The judge knew that the debt would be paid and that Jesus wouldn't skip out before the execution. Jesus made atonement for the sin that brought her to the attention of the Phoney-Baloney Pharisees, and told her not to do it again.

Case closed.


Judiciously Yours,

Handmaiden

It is interesting how few of the 10 Commandments are represented in humanist "conscience vote" secular laws. At last count it was THREE and reducing. But I am subject to correction, and it might vary slightly between countries (but I doubt it).

Re: Debunking common myths about Christianity
 
The breaking of most commandments result in death, especially adultry. What part of this don't you understand. Did they killer her, no they didn't. Was law upheald no it wasn't. Was the teachings of the elder pharisee thwarted, yes it was. Was disrespecting the Pharisees considered a bad thing. Yes. Did they kill Jesus for it in the end yes they did.

Sin, we are all sinners, no matter what.

If Jesus was God, then they killed a God, which is a contradiction to the defintion of a God.

I don't believe people go to hell, no more than I believe in a heaven after death. If Heaven isn't within while I am alive then I have no need of one when I am dead.

Luke 17:20-21 (King James Version)


20And when he was demanded of the Pharisees, when the kingdom of God should come, he answered them and said, The kingdom of God cometh not with observation: 21Neither shall they say, Lo here! or, lo there! for, behold, the kingdom of God is within you.

What part of this happens when your dead?

What no reply, I show where it says heaven is supposed to be within and you all disappear. :thumbdown:
