Allow me to add some more irritants into the cauldron then.
We're all servants of God and slaves to him, so the Earth in its entirety doesn't mean jack shit anyway. yeehaw
EXHIBIT A: Dude, at this point you're just being a troll. TEXT Yes, that makes sense. Slavishness however, is not that spirit.
EXHIBIT B: I've encountered enough people who use slave to meant good servant. But there is a very big problem with that: A slave is property. It is a material possession, with no free will nor rights of its own.
EXHIBIT C: Even from a literalist
point of view as regards the Bible, this is a problem. Firstly because God grants humanity free will, secondly because there is repeated rejection of materialism, and because the entire role of the Christ is to make human beings aware of treating one another with an equal, loving, and just spirit.
EXHIBIT D: You don't inhabit any of those qualities, and haven't for years now.
EXHIBIT E: I've seen you go from a pretty sensible if outspoken human being to someone obsessed with being controversial. Get a damned grip on yourself and address who you are both mentally and spiritually.
POINT A: Being a troll? Oh gee, sorry if stating an opinion on an internet message board is considered trolling in your eyes. It states plain as day in the Bible, the one you're talking about in this post, that humans are servants to God. It's up to an individual to believe that, of course, I'm just saying that's what it states. I said nothing further on it, so quit being a cryass about semantics just to look intelligent.
POINT B: And I've encountered enough black people as stated earlier, to make me hesitant and apprehensive around them. That doesn't make it right, and "I know people who think this way so the way you think doesn't count" is the most pathetic vie at making a point I've ever seen. I said right off the bat, my apprehensiveness is pretty wrong and not cool, but that's how I am based off events that have occurred in my life. Further, I'm curious as to what dictionary you're using, that you decided to follow its exact definition to act like a dick about it. Boo hoo this dictionary (a book) says this means this. Well this bible (another book) says this means this blah blah blah. Again, get over it.
Servant ≠ Slave
I don't talk about absurdly deep Buddhist-related things, as I don't know about them, nor do I practice them. If you're gonna start telling me what my own religion states, then you're just being a hypocrite about this entire post. Just sayin'.
POINT C: That's the "entire role" of Christ, eh? Okay! You sure know your stuff. I couldn't possibly respond to that with 30,000 pages of text-walls proving it entirely wrong. But that's boring, I'll let you think you're right because as much fun as I'm having right now, that would just get plain boring. Allow me to condense:
Christ's role was to save humanity from their own self-demise, and one
of the ways he did this was to be a role model for what you've stated above. That, however, was not his "entire" role. Again, I don't talk about Buddhism, because I know I'd look like I don't know what I'm talking about
. Fancy that, huh.
POINT D: You're going on this whole thing talking about Christ and religion, and then you go and do what? I dunno, let's use your fun game of dictionaries to find out, y'know... just for fun!
judge [juhj] noun, verb, judged, judg⋅ing.
–verb (used with object)
to pass legal judgment on; pass sentence on (a person): The court judged him guilty.
to hear evidence or legal arguments in (a case) in order to pass judgment; adjudicate; try: The Supreme Court is judging that case.
to form a judgment or opinion of; decide upon critically: You can't judge a book by its cover.
to decide or settle authoritatively; adjudge: The censor judged the book obscene and forbade its sale.
to infer, think, or hold as an opinion; conclude about or assess: He judged her to be correct.
to make a careful guess about; estimate: We judged the distance to be about four miles.
(of the ancient Hebrew judges) to govern.
Wow, that's crazy right there huh. It would seem you judged me right there, which is hilarious since you've had rather nil contact with me as of these last few "years" you claim to have knowledge of me, my actions, and my life. Further, since we're in a whole debacle about Christianity and Christ and God. Let's see two cool ones, shall we?
God's Righteous Judgment
1You, therefore, have no excuse, you who pass judgment on someone else, for at whatever point you judge the other, you are condemning yourself, because you who pass judgment do the same things. 2Now we know that God's judgment against those who do such things is based on truth. 3So when you, a mere man, pass judgment on them and yet do the same things, do you think you will escape God's judgment? 4Or do you show contempt for the riches of his kindness, tolerance and patience, not realizing that God's kindness leads you toward repentance?
5But because of your stubbornness and your unrepentant heart, you are storing up wrath against yourself for the day of God's wrath, when his righteous judgment will be revealed. 6God "will give to each person according to what he has done."[a] 7To those who by persistence in doing good seek glory, honor and immortality, he will give eternal life. 8But for those who are self-seeking and who reject the truth and follow evil, there will be wrath and anger.
Matthew 7:3-5 (New King James Version)
3 And why do you look at the speck in your brother’s eye, but do not consider the plank in your own eye? 4 Or how can you say to your brother, ‘Let me remove the speck from your eye’; and look, a plank is in your own eye? 5 Hypocrite! First remove the plank from your own eye, and then you will see clearly to remove the speck from your brother’s eye
That's pretty crazy huh? Allow me, again, to summarize all this:
God judges a human when their life is at its end, not before. Any human claiming judgement over another man prior to this time asserts himself to be above a Divine being. Personally, I'm pretty cool just being a human who fucks up and feels remorse when he sincerely thinks he has done wrong. But wait, no, you're God apparently and your judgement is that I don't have any remorse or sensibility, or any semblance of a good person? Thanks Mark, I'm so enlightened now.
POINT E: THE INTERNET IS SERIOUS BUSINESS SOUND THE ALARMS THERE'S CONTROVERSIAL TEXT ON MY SCREEN!!!!!!
Are you for real? If people can't talk about the down-and-dirty on a subject, we might as well be sitting in a sixth grade class room being moderated by a teacher. I was under the impression a discussion entailed all sides of a given subject matter, including the bottom side where all the moss, dirt, and insects nest. All I'm doing is pointing it out, as I feel ignoring sides to a story is nothing but ignorance. But, if you want to take that as "trolling" or "being a dick," feel free too. Strange, I thought Buddhism was all about expanding the mind and being accepting of others, wasn't it? But then again, if it's not, I probably look just like you right now...Like a fucking asshole
most amazing image ever
Beyond amazing since I often tell people I summarize the entirety of the Bible with those exact words. Though, I do addendum it with the simple fact God says an Eye for an Eye, and there's Psalms 18 that directly state God gives vengeance to men, at times, when it's needed. So the whole hoot'n'anny about "Let God get revenge" is tripe bullshit. It's plain as day to me, anyway. I mean fuck, look at Samson, that dude used to just get up ons, shout really loud (anime's origins...!) and do something badass while God made him invincible and stronger than a thousand horses.
No, that's real shit, look it up. God gave men
the ability to rule over those who God deems unjust, and set them straight. But why did it come to physical blows? Simple. Some people only respond to getting their asses kicked and can't be reasoned with using words alone. So, God told Samson "yo, go kill they ass, they fucked up."
PS: The Bible does not say swearing is immoral or wrong or a sin.
If you wish to discuss anything related to Bibliography or Christianity, please feel free to, because I'll teach you some crazy shit about how it says boobs are awesome as long as they're your wife's, and how it promotes humans to have sex and claims it's only sinful with certain people.
In other words, fuck all that noise and blah blah blah specific details about everything. Here's a crazy idea, now, bear with me, because I don't know if you've ever seen this pearls of radiant wisdom before, are you ready?
Hey, Mark, guess what? Don't be a dick.
Pray tell, Mr. High-and-Mighty who apparently knows my life, where did I begin my fall from the walk of God and into this apparent vortex of sin and disgrace? I believe you said it was a few years ago. Could you point out where you hid all the cameras in my room to know this? I'd love to find them so I can do strip shows for you and such.
