    Default Defining the Christian Life

    History's Great Christian Lives:

    Paul
    The early martyrs
    Augustine
    St. Patrick Bernard of Clairvaux
    Francis of Assisi
    Clare of Assisi
    Catherine of Siena
    Thomas More
    Martin Luther
    John Wesley
    The Monks of Mount Athos
    Teresa of Calcutta
    Martin Luther King

    It is ultimately futile to create the definition of a great Christian - we will nevertheless suggest some qualities that just about all of the people on our list share:

    1. All are rooted in scripture.
    2. All the people we examined were willing to sacrifice their lives for Christ, in imitation of Christ himself.
    3.All perceived the need to practice Christian love and live as part of the visible body of Christ on Earth.
    4. The virtue of humility is a universal attribute of great Christians.
    5. All were conscious of finding a relationship between the active and contemplative dimensions of Christianity.

    Believing in something you can't see, touch, or feel. Believing in Magic. Believing in a Philosophy that was founded under Imperial Rome occupation, a Philosophy of Survival (submission to the Authorities).

    'Science' would be the opposite of 'Religious Belief'. Science follow the facts, if the facts change, the science changes. Religious Belief NEVER changes. THAT'S the problem with 'Religion'.

    Cypress, please go to Bethlehem, spread your Message THERE. Here in the US, we support SCIENCE.

    OP is a Religious Quack. Continuously praises a Slave Religion.
    Supports 'Latin Only', since once the Slaves were exposed to the Bible in their native tongue, they revolted.

    My guess, ... 'Cypress' is a TV Evangelist. 'Religion is a Good Hustle' should be his byline.

    Yeah, that's not God's religion.

    Here's what I know:

    God created this world we live in, you're free to do whatever you want.

    He also ingrained karma into this world to keep you fuckers straight!

    People probably should do what God asks of them and they might would be happier.

    People that take in money in the name of God and provide nothing will be having a bad time.

    Matt. When 9/11 happened, Cypress got on his soap box and declared 'we must Forgive our Trespassers' ... 'we must Turn the Other Cheek'. 'Jesus is our Lord'

    Secular America said 'Fuck You Cypress, we're going after these assholes'.

    "Osama bin Laden, the founder and first leader of the Islamist militant group al-Qaeda, was killed in Pakistan on May 2, 2011, shortly after 1:00 a.m. PKT[1][2] (20:00 UTC, May 1) by United States Navy SEALs of the U.S. Naval Special Warfare Development Group"

    I suppose real Christians start off from what Jesus said, and put it into what they feel is appropriate practice. I've met a few, but you won't have heard of them: they were Christians, not SELF-promoting ego-trippers..

    I have university degrees in science, and certainly know more about science than you.

    Considering the vast volume of posts on this forum which amount to nothing more than scurrilous gossip, blantant racism, unrepentant nincompoopery, I am surprised you would complain so vociferously about a brief examination of the lives of Martin Luther King, Mother Teresa, Francis of Assisi.
