I received the following post last night...
From : Marc_Welsher@bubbs.biola.edu
Subject: Re: David, Christianity
James writes to Daniel:
>"We aren't so easily swayed", I believe I read here some
time ago. Now, Daniel, I told you that story (from Hebrew
Tradition) to point out that your belief appears more like
"Idol Worship" than anything else. Would you like to
convince me otherwise. I'll give you an idea to think
about. If you tell me that the world is round, I may
believe you. If you tell me that it is filled with little
>green men that make flowers grow, what am I to think?
Perhaps you believe you're descended from a Baboon, and
wish us to believe you. Well, perhaps you'd like an
oportunity. Here it is. ONE RULE! You must argue your
case based on documented references which are NOT based on
IMAGINATION, ILLUSION, OR PURE SPECULATION! Because some
'Primate' said something yesterday doesn't count. You have
to thin for yourself, and back your arguments.
>I await your reply, as you may wish to convert this
'Heathen' to your christian ways. However be warned.
While Abram was placed into a furnace and "while the
furnace was very hot, abram was cool"..
>but Haran (his brother) was"then cast into the furnace.
Since Haran's faith was not perfect, he was quickly burned
to a crisp."
>I wait you in the Furnace.
I've had a belly full about the way you have responded to
him. Although he
may have come on a little strong regarding his faith, he
has not deserved the battering he's received. However,
James, how would you like to discuss Scripture with me?
Let's begin by discussing Christian.
Contrary to what others might think, the Christian faith
is NOT a blind
faith. This view implies intellectual suicide on the part
of the Christian. Personally, my heart cannot rejoice in
what my heart rejects. They were created to work in
harmony, not dichotomy. Hence the command to
"Love the Lord your God with ALL your HEART, and with all
your soul, AND with ALL your MIND."
And it goes on....and on...(I won't repeat it unless requested)
