It?s all over in the Bible. God sent Jesus to die for my sins and yours. He didn?t have to do that, right?
This is just Mike's pathetic attempt to try to attack the stance that "liberals protect trans people and Muslims and won't ever say anything bad about either."
Conservatives never burned a cross on Obama's White House lawn, and even their relentless efforts to lynch him were largely figurative.
"I didn't say I made a commitment to a spirit. I think perhaps the words spiritual commitment mean something else to you."

Someone's mad that the truth got told.

Arrogance, insecurity and a poor education are the answers to the question posed. All humans are born atheists and have to learn to embrace religion.
Now, of course, you've hit upon one of the most controversial questions in the study of early Islam, and one that cannot be answered by linguistics alone: who were the Christians from whom Muhammad got his knowledge of Christianity?

Welcome to the conversation, Plotinus. I have found your reasoning to be firmly rooted in unbelief, which is NOT A BAD THING. I have had 40 yrs as a evangelic fundamentalist, but only 3 yrs as a Progressive Christian Universalist and as a result, have begun questioning all my previous doctrines and christian "traditions". So alot of what you have reasoned rings true to me. Thank you for your contribution to the conversation here. And I don't really care whether or not you've read the article posted to my OP, because you have the topic well analyzed and expressed. I appreciate your objectivity and would be honored to have you as a follower and a regular commentator to my posts in the future. ???????
and another thing, i love when you wake up in the morning!!!
