Christianity: Not For Mystics Or Pharisaics
(Apollonian, 17 Feb 16)
(Apollonian, 17 Feb 16)
Christian literature and New Test. is obviously and simply the aesthetical and dramatic vehicle in which we find Christian philosophy and commentary, beginning w. Christ's affirmation of Aristotelian objective reality, basis of truth (Gosp. JOHN 14:6), only way to Godly happiness, and then everything which follows for Christ and his lessons.
And there is no "good-evil" in an objective, determined reality as I've noted, and this "good-evil" delusion/fallacy is foundation of HERESY of Pelagianism (ck Wiki or Google search), favorite lie told by Pharisaics by which to inculcate a subjectivistic reality within the minds of poor fools--which all I've explained to this moron, JR, literally dozens of times.
And reality is Darwinian, esp. the human part of it which is war, strife, and tragedy, as taught by Greeks and all the greatest minds of the West, fm Homer through Machiavelli, Hobbes, and Herbert Spenser, et al. Christianity brings an internal peace and provides a means of MANAGEMENT for this war, strife, and tragedy.
JR (see below-copied), in his satanic ignorance and mendacity tries to mis-represent not only Christianity, but all/any "religion" for not providing a political "peace" panacea upon which he's obviously obsessed to positively psychotic degree.
The utterly, entirely mis-represented "Christianity" given, above, by TS, is obviously just a brainless, moronic, mass of childish, idiotic, putrid MYSTICISM, totally anti-Christ for basic nature and purpose, which Christ affirms the objective, determined reality, foundation for all reason and genuine human knowledge founded in science and logic--the Holy Spirit consisting of REASON combined w. HONESTY--which honesty leaves out the Jews, foremost satanic liars, frauds, and criminals.
So we see both TS and JR mis-represent Christianity, indulging in moronic, mystic concepts and heresies like non-existent "good-evil." TS is a gross, horrific anti-Christ and MYSTIC, whereas JR is less overtly mystic-oriented, but still clinging to and insistent upon idea he's "good" or that he knows anything, esp. in regard to either religion or Christianity of which he not only knows nothing but actually pushes falsehoods and deliberate mis-representations. At least TS doesn't deliberately lie--he's just not too bright.

Apsterian and TS:
OK - great opportunities to understand here. Yes - the problem is that we cannot escape evil - so why bother?
Since evil exists - we must next ask ourselves if evil really is such a bad thing - maybe evil is good?
If evil is good - why fight it? Does evil work for you? Does evil work for me? Why combat it at all?

JR, I don't think the purpose of Christianity is to make division and hatred disappear, rather it explains why there is evil. Job wondered why he had to undergo suffering, and got his answer later from God. As a theological understanding, CI (dual seedline CI) best puts it in focus for me. Two trees are woven into history - the Tree of the Knowledge of Good and Evil, and the Tree of Life. Christian social order "happens" among the people of the tree of life through their obedience to God. When they are disobedient, many times God uses the people of the Tree of Good and Evil, to administer chastisement. The Bible is the record of this conflict first mentioned at Gen3:15. As Christians we can't escape evil. We can understand the purpose of it however. - TS
