To Jeffrey:Unfortunately you are still confused
Submitted by Richard Lion heart (United States), Feb 21, 2006 at 01:14Dear J,
I wish you were not so confused. You said you want to follow the example of the apostles and yet you refuse to believe in what they believed in. You quoted a passage from Timothy.
II Timothy 4:3-4
For the time is coming when people will not endure sound teaching, but having itching ears they will accumulate for themselves teachers to suit their own likings, and will turn away from listening to the truth and wander into myths.
This passage applies perfectly to you and other muslims who believe in the false prophet Muhammad and his book of fables. I noticed how you only quote incomplete passages, therefore taking them out of context. For example let's see what Timothy believed in.
II Timothy 4:1
" I charge you therefore before God and the Lord Jesus Christ, who will judge the living and the dead at His appearing and His Kingdom"
Do you believe in Jesus as judge over the living and the dead like Timothy did Jeffrey? Do you believe in the kingdom of Jesus like Timothy did?
You said I'm sucking up to Jesus. Well better suck up to Jesus my savior than the pedophile and murderer Muhammad like you do. Let's see what the Bible says about that.
Nor does the Father judge anyone, but he has given all judgment 10 to his Son,
"so that all may honor the Son just as they honor the Father. Whoever does not honor the Son does not honor the Father who sent him."
Do you consider honoring the Son sucking up Jeffrey? Your confusion is so deep.
You quoted the apostle Peter. Do you know Peter knew Jesus and was one of His apostle? I have to tell you these things because you are in a state of confusion. What did the apostle Peter believe.
II Peter I:1-3
"Simon Peter, a bondservant and apostle of Jesus Christ, to those who have obtained like precious faith with us by the righteousness of our God and Savior Jesus Christ: Grace and peace be multiplied to you in the knowledge of God and of Jesus our Lord, as His divine power has given to us all things that pertain to life and godliness, through the knowledge of Him who called us by glory and virtue."
Are you a bondservant of Jesus Christ like Peter was Jeffrey? I have to ask you because you claim to be following his example. His Jesus your God and Savior like He is to Peter? Are you ready to die a martyr (not in the muslim sense ofcourse) for Jesus like Peter did in Rome?
Or are you just saying anything just to say something. You are making a bunch of claims which as a muslim you don't even follow. ...
