Reader's Challenge

I was told that I showed my ignorance in my comments regarding other religions and philosophies.  Of course, the person who said this offered absolutely no proof for his accusations.  Therefore, I offer you, my readers, an opportunity both to correct my ignorance and help out my accuser.

If there is another religion that believes that salvation, in whatever form you wish to define it: peace of heart, heavenly glory, earthly transformation, escape from the cycle of reincarnation, etc., comes solely by the action of God while solving the problem of justice and mercy and while proclaiming is absolutely nothing we must do to obtain it, then I invite you to share.

I stand by my statement, Kevin.
You do seem rather sensitive.
I don't think that Buddhists are really all that worried. They aren't worried about you judgment or The God if Israel's judgment. you see they have their own gods...
(Nice try though)
I really don't think that any purpose is served by your myopic narcissism and unfair representation of the beliefs of other cultures and traditions.
They don't seem to share your angst, or your need to judge others. You can't guilt trip them. They don't seem to feel any particular need to proselytize those who don't share their beliefs...
I suspect that they might be bemused by your need to Judge others.
Perhaps your angst and judgmental attitude says more about you than those you claim sufficient credentials to condemn. Just kinda thinking out loud her Rev....

CIAO for now.

You get to have a comment stand for a change, Carl, but in true fashion, you did not answer the question.

For I am not worried about what other religions think, I am worried about what is true. And if Jesus is who He says He is and did what He and the writers of Scripture said He did, then He is unique among world religions. His teachings are paramount, and we should do our best to followw them--including His command to proselytize.

No other religion or philosophy claims that God has done all that is sufficient for salvation while satisfying the need for justice by His actions and not our own. No other comment you make will be allowed unless you specifically address this point.

I warned you, Carl. You once again do not answer the question but go off on tangent.

OH DARN....
NOT THIS AGAIN... Oh NO... Clearly there is no dialog with you.

Aw Shucks, Kevin How many times have you banned me from posting To this blog?
And then you keep responding to my comments.... Inviting me to respond further. Then deleting my responses. This feels like a totalitarian state. SEIG Hiel...

Oh no Kev here you go being distracted from the real and important things in your life... How are your wife and Kids? As a pastors kid I know a bit about the 24/7 nature of the ministry, and that was before the internet. Don't your wife and darling children deserve more attention than me? After all I am but a Fig newton of your hallucination.

Really Kevin, do you do battle with me because you are feeling small, or somehow inadequate in the real world?

Just kind Of curious...

I know this post will be deleted, but you clearly do read my musings before deleting them.


L'Chaim!

Carl, I delete your commentary because it has nothing to do with the questions posed. I am leaving this post up as evidence of your persistent behavior. You fail to answer the question, attack me personally, and then get upset when I enforce the clear boundaries I set comparing me to Nazis. That is your choice, but I choose to do battle with such behavior because it is not in alignment with one who professes Jesus just as claiming that other religions are similar to Christianity.

So much for open Dialog. Are you aware that totalitarian regimes censor thought and open debate in their areas.

L'Chaim

Kevin Haug said...

Open dialogue is welcome. Name calling, insulting my time management with my family, and breaking boundaries is not. Bullies insult and then cry foul when confronted. You are nothing more and nothing less than a cyber-bully, Carl.

Unknown said...

OK kevin, I get it that your ego has been bruised.
so rather than debating the points I raised, you call me a bully.
Curious kevin, very curious. The most curious thing to me is that I think that you and I are actually very close to agreement on many major theological issues. It has been your responses to the points of clarification that I request that seems to have contributed to the riff between us.

But you are the Most High Lord of this Blog.

I am sensing that bruised egos has caused our dialog to devolve into the current Urination spectacle. Oh yeah, here is a lesson that I learned from personal experience, don't forget when you are in such a contest make sure that the wind is at your back.

Come now kevin, the real issue is not a theological one between us, and to carry on as though it were, is an insult to the God we both dearly love, and who through His Son Jesus, has offered us Eternal life.

OK go ahead, ban me again Kevin, and this time really mean it.

I am done...

QED

I'm leaving that last comment just to see if it's true... :-)
