Oh Amos, sometime I wish it were true. That I was not constrained as MCrow has pointed out to you. That I could without ethical or moral regrets rid the world once and for all of ellipsis.

And bravo to you CrowFood. I can not say you are fighting “The Good Fight” or even that you are winning.  I can only hope and pray that it turns out to be Odin.

Well, I worship Azathoth, the Demon Sultan, the blind idiot god who cares not for the suffering or pleasures he causes, nor is he even aware of them.

...which is still a step up from whatever eldritch horror Amos worships...

Amos seems to be Christian News Network's remaining "star".  He has certainly been there the longest. I wonder how he has managed to escape the ban, because he has easily been guilty of all the things that get other people banned.  Someone over there is protecting him.

Do they have a donations setup?  Because I know that, back on certain other forums I used to frequent, donate enough and you were basically untouchable, even if you were a blatant troll.

I couldn't say for sure, but Christian News Network is such a clickbait & popup-ridden disaster of a website that they probably take the cash any way they can get it.

CNN had 60 hits on the firefox Ad blocker. I think I read one article.
You're not kidding that it is an Ad hound of a site.

I just hit Amos in his soft spot. I told him that he didn't know his bible well enough to discuss it with him, and that as a new follower of Jesus he should read the gospel and learn what Jesus taught us  to be like. lol!
Then I hit him below the belt when I told him there were more instructions than there were mention of Other People's sins.
Most of what Jesus taught were the sins were to teach believers about them so they could avoid them.
It wasn't to show that we should rebuke sinners unless they are Christians and know they are sinning. Rebuke = Reminder in that case. It still does not have to be done rudely.  :P

I'm enjoying being able to argue with Amos again, but I have to keep reminding myself that I need to write differently so they do not recognize me. I keep making comments that were made by Sharon_at_Home/ Mama Bearly and having to change them. And I have not started "preaching" below my answers yet either. I figure I'll have to slowly start doing that or they will connect me for that too. I really feel like I'm lying about who I am still. My conscience is bothering me too. I am hoping that with time I can be more relaxed and my conscience will settle too. I guess I'll have to wait and see.

I found a post from Lady Checkmate and made a post that said I was rebuking her for her sin but it appears to have been removed. lol! And I thought I was so nice about the whole thing too!  ::)

There are more posters with names I've never seen before too. And I've been hit by two atheists trying to 'stop me' from pretending lol!
I can't lie and say it isn't true, because I have had experiences that prove he isn't pretend. I don't like feeling attacked though. I don't mind talking to anyone but they both made me feel like I was being attacked for my belief.

I do understand what the gays go through with the ID10T Christians and this just added to my understanding. SMH
It would have been more fun to watch them both post with Amos. lol!   :P

I can't find any mention of the article that was about the Nashville statement now at all. not even in the archives of articles. Weird, isn't that? :o
 
I'm tired of those posters who say they are Christians but act like they think they are gods themselves. I am having to remove half of what I type as a reply because it's too sarcastic or belittling which is against how I act normally, but these ones drive me to that degree. Thankfully I edit before I post!
Oh btw I did teach Amos something!! He is using the information about free will to choose and he even used the fact that people can convert later in their lives and we can't know who will turn to Jesus and who won't - but he skipped the part about having to be nice so they will still turn to Jesus.
At least I got him to believe in Free will, so who knows what else he's actually listened to, right?  ;D
The Word of God is Truth; if it is not in the Word of God, it is not Truth.
The Gospel is the instructions to be a better Christian and to become more like Christ. This will show our good works, and show a light that will give Glory to God.

Walk daily with the Lord and learn his ways.

It is very odd.
The up votes seem to be random and often on mundane comments. Amos and Paladin Roy also get these votes (most other folks have “Private” accounts and can not be checked). 

There seems to be a large number of DISQUS accounts each with twenty some “followers” and around 1000 “Following”.  All are ‘Follow” accounts they are often from Brazil or Greece. There are exceptions such as,
https://disqus.com/by/Ole_Ingvar/

Several of the accounts have links to or frequent soft-core porn sites.

Since DISQUS doesn’t provide statistics on where people vote, it is not possible to determine patterns of up voting. I cannot concern a motive for this and without tools, I am not willing to hand build a matrix of sites, accounts and ideological patterns behind this odd behavior.

If you would like to enjoy the rare spectacle of Amos being in over his head and being called out by several people at once, go here, before the ban hammer falls:

Well, logic, reason, evidence don't work, and frankly upon reviewing you copious output on other discussion threads, it is safe to say you are a complete and total idiot.
You know little of what you speak.
I had Alphabits for breakfast and will later poop a better argument.
English As A Second Language Classes are taught at your local library.
Did you parents have any children that lived?

Amos was basically overwhelmed by all the people opposing him.  He left hours ago and hasn't been back.  VERY unlike him.

My goodness!  Around 80% of the posts were removed.


And it seems you, RWH, are gone. I'll miss your posts. I was just reading them as they slipped off into the aether. Another sane, knowledgable person got the ban hammer.


brucewang is also gone. -Ban Hammered!

It is very easy to come back.  I hope you all do if they ban you.  I haven't recovered from the loss of Ambulance Chaser...boy is he missed over there.  I believe he was going to request reinstatement to be legit about it but I would doubt that works with these people.  Just download TOR browser, log in with a new name and let the fun continue.

Yes, I was wondering why there were no replies to my posts.  To be quite honest, I'm losing interest in the site.  People like Amos get to insult others, yet nothing happens.  He was extremely insulting, dismissing the education and knowledge of others.  Imagine!  To tell someone who earned degrees that they are just mere pieces of paper.  Do the moderators even realize that some of the bad behavior on this list is motivated by people like Amos.   

Since we're not even on an even playing field, there is no real sense to try to participate.  I have found that I am not getting my own work done because I'm so busy countering the insults which others throw--with impunity!

I will continue to follow this list, but I probably will wean myself of Christian News.  Much of what they publish is not really news but rather meddling into the private affairs of others and other churches.  And the attitude of the list, especially the moderators, is certainly not Christian.

That's kind of you to say. I have some thoughts on my current status, and I've been thinking about putting them into words. I may put together a post about it soon.
