I've heard of "turn the other cheek" but not "an eye for an eye." I wikipedia'd it and found the bible verse. (yes I'm going to quote from the Bible, shut up.)
Exodus 21: 23-27 (not exact quote)
"But if injury ensues, you shall give life for life, eye for eye, tooth for tooth, hand for hand, foot for foot. When a man strikes a male or female slave in the eye and destroys the use of the eye, he shall let the slave go free in compensation for the eye."
I don't find the quotes contradicting. "Turn the other cheek" is a rule for the target of the persecution. "An eye for an eye" is a rule for the one who hands it out.
Stereotyping-taking the general mental image and using it in that form. I should have said generalizing. I was using the pastor thing to prove that not all use quotes. Yes, I'm an agressive debater. And may I remind you that there's a specific time for peace AND war? That's in there. Btw, Quan, I know--Mod. Still, that's hipocrisy. If I recall, his job is to STOP this kind of thing...Of course, no one DARE challenge a mod... *understands I'm in hot water*
I've never heard of "The Root Of All Evil" so I have no reply."
That's because it was never aired in the US. Your country is very backward in some ways, such as in the ideas of liberty of free speech etc.
The point of that silly post was to show you this, jesus loves all. Correct? But if you don't love him back...he throws you into hell for all eternity?
So if I ask a girl at school if she loves me, and she says no...would it be ok for me to burn her alive?
Sorry about my disapearence...
Will some one answer my question. I asked it o so vary long ago.
One more thing--a new point that isn't on the defensive. Tell me this. You make it obvious that you disagree with Christianity. That's fine(well that's not what I meant but you know) but if Christianity IS fake as you say, why did it come here to this world? Just give me your opinion, I'm not trying to say that it's true because it's here. I'm kind of confused on how you fight this battle, and other than the fact you think our religion is a lie, how you view it as wrong, fake, or a scam.

If you are supposed to burn and be tortured for eternity, don't you think you would get used to it after, I don't know, 100 years? Maybe more? Maybe even less?
Or, if we're following what Satan wants us to do (disobey God), wouldn't he reward us in hell?
I mean, others have told me that Lucifer (the fallen angel, a.k.a. Satan) was sent to hell to burn for eternity and therefore when we get there he wants the same for us. Well, why would he want that? I mean, he's in a constant war with God, so why would he torture his "followers?" His "army" persay... Personally if I believed in God and Satan, I think Satan would have quite a few more people down on his side...but that's just my opinion.
Also, in heaven: If God gave us free will, why then in heaven does he want us to worship him? Contradictory?
I'd love to hear something on these subjects from the religious folk.
