If that is true, it applies to everybody's opinion, so it makes no difference whether you have the confidence to use your own, or take the weak way out and adopt somebody else's ... they are all deceiving!  :twisted:


I would suggest that you clearly prove that your own opinion falls into the deceptive category then ...

Scripture is not opinion it is the history of mankind. It can be proven that its writings are often misunderstood but it has never been proven wrong in its accuracy of predicting historical events or supporting archaeological finds.

The quote doesn't mention categories. It refers to ALL men's opinions.

Quote:

It is the writers opinion of the history of mankind.
Quote:

That depends on who is 'interpreting' the predictions.

In any case, my original comment was on the cavorting and antics of the individuals being 'exorcised'. A right pantomime of self-deception. Smilie_PDT

A scoofer seeks wisdom
 and does not find it,
But knowledge
 is easy to him who understands.
Go from the presence of a foolish man,
When you do not perceive in him the
 lips of knowledge.
The wisdom of the prudent
 is to understand his way,
But the folly of fools is deceit.

"There is a way which seems right to a
 man,
But its end is the way of death."

Calling people who don't agree with you fools is a ploy that takes in only the foolish.  Smilie_PDT

Lynne,

You claimed that people like me would “glad string a paedophile up and not feel guilt or remorse at doing so”.  This is either a total ignorance or misunderstanding of my actual opinions, so I have no idea why you would make such a claim.  When challenged on this gross misrepresentation you do as you always do; never an apology or admission of error, simply a shift of stance and go on the offensive to try to cover yourself:

Quote:
Make them answerable by taking them out of society?
How else would you describe it, seeing as hanging is unlawful?
Don't play tactics I really do not appreciate it


Can you even tell when you are talking crap, or has the Holy Spirit somehow drawn a veil over this vital ability?  I'm not 'playing tactics' whatever the hell you mean by this, and you can frankly bugger off; once again you disappoint me with your utterly pathetic, confused and repellent debating technique.

Definition
string sb up phrasal verb
phrasal verb

[M] informal to kill someone by hanging them by the neck from a rope, usually as a punishment for a crime
He reckons they're too soft on mass murderers and says they ought to be strung up.

informal to punish someone severely
He ought to be strung up for what he said about his mother.



So you don't believe they should be punished severely?

Seems you owe me the apology.... See if your as quick to apologise for your out and out false accusation. :roll:

Disappoint you, with your understanding, no one person must disppoint you, more than you do yourself. Get a life or get laid. It might make you better tempered. Oh! and when I start worrying what you think I shall kick your kennel.

Love Lynne.xxx :roll:

So when you wrote:

without laws; nothing to make them answerable they would do it more often and more openly, so  causing good people to take matters into their own hands and do things they normally wouldn't. Even in society today, we hear people such as yourself who would glad string a paedophile up and not feel guilt or remorse at doing so.  

You actually meant:

You are so full of crap Lynne - how can you even walk without soiling yourself.

By the way, I actually think paedophiles are mentally ill and should be treated as mental patients rather than criminals, but that's by the by.

By the by, there's a good opener for a whole new debate - is paedophilia a mental disorder to be treated compassionately, or a crime to be punished severely?

Time for a new thread, if anybody's interested!

If they were mentally ill they would be in mental hospitals not prisons.
So I guess that is why you are not psychiatrist.
