Re: Not That Simple

A couple more thoughts:

1. Only God can damn any Man, so naturally no christians would have damned us.
2. God's word is so clear we dont need to judge for ourselves.
3. I hope you didn't mean that sin is relative to any time or place.
4. to be honest about the church thing, you are absolutely right. Christians of generations past would have been horrified if the saw secular movie clips in churches (at all)or worse, being equated to scripture. And rightfully so. But that has nothing to do with them and everything to do with GOD's Word.

I had written an extended response to this post, however I tried to post it at the same time as Anonymous posted the treatise below titled "Re:Simply Gray," and apparently the website didn't appreciate the excess attention. Therefore, since the conversation has changed, I will eventually respond to the most recent post instead of rewriting my previous response. First, however, I want to say something about the English language. Ours is not a language in which we have one meaning for each word, and one word for each meaning. English, and every other language for that matter, is filled with ambiguities and shades of meaning. For instance, if you were to look up "damn" in Webster's unabridged third edition dictionary, you would find that the definition is roughly as long as the Soman Fighter's post "Simply Gray." However, if you didn't have access to that particular dictionary, and would rather look the word up on the internet, you would find that dictionary.com gives five different definitions of "damn," and only one of them applies to God's damning a sinner to hell. The others justify my usage of the word, and definition one (To pronounce an adverse judgment upon.) justifies me when I damn this instance of uniformed use of the english language.
