No, of intellectually honest people. I'm sorry you don't like hearing it.
I guess you are too stupid or lazy to look up the Iglesias ni Cristo. You will find plenty of stories describing how former members are killed, if you dare. I don't blame you for not wanting to look even more pathetic. Cling to the hate.
u might get angry at my first comment but jake seems real dumb, i mean, there seems to have been a lot of moments where he should have realized, "does shawn have a thing for my girlfriend?", but he's either oblivious to it or ignoring and acting like its nothing. For me that sort of stuff shawn did would immediately raise suspicions in my head like a lighting bolt, and i'd start assuming the absolute worst and work my way down in my head. Though I have issues with fully trusting people, and can be a bit of cynic but lets get back to the topic since this isn't about me, it's just weird that jake seems to have missed all those clues but hey maybe he's just a real trustworthy sort of person. as for what u should do, personally I think if jake is a good dude, he'd definitely want to know but at the same time, ur a grown woman and should be able to take care of urself. to expand on that, i mean, first you need a couple questions answered, like show long will jake be working with shawn? is it gonna be for years, or a short period of time. If it's years, then that's too long and you should tell jake so he knows cause you don't want to associated with shawn for that long (never know what might happen), not saying he's some sort of sexual predator, but his morals are definately questionable. if its a short period of time like months, i think you can handle that, just don't try to go events where you know shawn will be there (just tell jake, you don't like the guy and would prefer to avoid him and not discuss you around him) and hopefully all goes well for jake, and he can stop associating with shawn and at that point you can tell him shawn was a dipshit and also tell jake he was blind. That's personally how i view ur situation and think what u should do. now lets put me into this picture for the fun of it. If i had a gal like u and shawn did that crap to u, I WOULD WANT TO KNOW SO I COULD PUNCH HIM IN THE FACE CAUSE NOTHING IS MORE IMPORTANT THEN YOU AND UR PEACE OF MIND. I'd also want to know just so I knew the type of person he was and to be more alert in the future. If you kept it a secret and told me after i was done working with shawn, I'd understand why u did it and the fact that u were thinking about helping my/our future, but i'd be disappointed cause I don't care much for lies and secrets in a relationship. i like total honesty to a fault. good luck girl, he sounds like a creep, and if he keeps pressuring you or anything like that, ignore what i said and freaking tell jake. not worth ur peace of mind.
Marriage has to be defined.
Except that a respectful, meticulous, attentive and serious reading of the NT automatically and immediately raises questions that those "weird" theories address.
Ah, I was referencing the thing and not the theory. At least as best I could.
8 billion and still growing: we're not doing too bad.
I think some of the problems with believing that Jesus exsisted is based on the fact that he was not born Dec 25. But people decided to put him in there to incorporate the many pagan holidays celebrating the winter solstice that occurres at that time. The other problem seems to the virgin birth, which also happened in other ancient religions.
"Is this only an issue due to the race of the parties involved?
Psych meds are the common determinations. The MSM is silent on this because big pharma will pull their advertising if they mention it
I didn't say he was defaming MLK or anything; if anything, I agree he was distinguishing him from the vengeful & vindictive Christians. But the fact remains that MLK was a Christian by any definition except the one Hitch pulled out of his arse.

I hate to break the news to you but you are a product of the Protestant reformation just like the rest of the heretics. Martin Luther changed Sacred Scripture and added the word ?alone? to Romans 3:23 in order to create the ?Bible alone??theory. The fruit of the Spirit of the Reformation is evident through the 40,000 denominations... I guess with you as a rogue sheep among them, your own dogma adds to the pile of heresies making it 40,001. But actually it?s unknown how many Protestant sects there are, which is sayin? something about the fruit, eh. Everything you hate, really hate, about religion is embodied by the faiths that have risen as institutional Christianity?s decline... prosperity preachers, Joel Osteen, self-help guru, and so on... A bunch of scattered sheep in your disdain for ?organized?. The Truth is, Truth is also an organized Good Shepherd, so your whole ?spiritual but not religious? is not knowing Him. And out how curiosity, how do you reveive Him as the Bread of Life? The Gospel alone has taught you nothing if you do not understand how to interpret it. You have no authority and #thingsJesusneversaid was to make true whatever you want to be true. Relativism is the product of the reformation. You read a nice a verse about Jesus dying for our sins and now you?are saved regardless of your sins.. alleluia! In your cherry-picked version of the Gospel is a half truth, which also makes it a half lie. If you truely want to be saved, enter through the Gate (Jesus) and follow the narrow path to Salvation. Here are a few verses to get you started on getting to know your Savior:
I grew up.
trump was born in Kenya? and the trump's and Obama's were friends?
Winkies and cooters
Nope. I do not claim it. The witnesses do that.
Going to see Solo today?
I don't. And I don't.

God is supernatural. You will never think so. I will never not think so. I am open-minded and you are not...on that particular point.
Lol, I mean regardless of if this was the correct charge or not, what this dude did was despicable.
I wish I had a quarter for every time I've had to utter that sentence!
I strive for kindness, but it's directed at others. I'm full of self-loathing and I guess that would be a good place to start.
I honestly cant believe they cannot see it for what it is.
"As many of you already know, I became a Christian when I was 13 yrs old."
This is all a fanciful way of looking at reality. I see God as an impersonal cosmic mind, an unfathomable creative intelligence. A 'father' doesn't let his children come to harm. That's my objection to the 'father' analogy. But there's no doubt God is the Boss.
cheese and rice, is nothing sacred anymore
I also support the trans community and I don't think that they have a choice either; it's just how their fetal development occurred. (I know several trans people and no one would ever choose what they've had to go through.)
