The finer points of Hypocrisy…

Posted by Henric C. Jensen on July 29, 2007


This poster really doesn’t see her own hypocritical approach – and it’s painful to watch.

I have noticed that some of my friends don’t capitalize God, instead they spell his name g-o-d. This offends me and it is very offensive to God, Himself. I believe some of you are getting confused between the mythological gods who-don’t capitalize the word god-and the “real thing.”

A member here has a disturbing page icon, at least it is to me, that reads “All Gods Are One God.” She/he is a good person-I’m sure-and has the right to express her/his oppinoin however they choose, but Christians-like myself-believe in ONLY ONE GOD.

Thank you XX, for allowing me this opportunity to express myself. I welcome all oppinions I’m sure to get.

Love & Light,


Don’t you just like it when people demand certain religious practices and forget to extend the same courtesy to others and their practices? It makes for such perfect noose curls.

Curl #1: “I have noticed that some of my friends don’t capitalize God, instead they spell his name g-o-d. This offends me and it is very offensive to God, Himself.”

Who died and made you G-d so you can read G-d’s mind and decide what offends Him/Her? Ok, so it offends YOU, but you are not G-d, so you cannot decide if G-d is offended.

Curl #2: “I believe some of you are getting confused between the mythological gods who-don’t capitalize the word god-and the “real thing.””

Again who died and made you the judge of what is the “Real Thing”? The G-d of the Greek Scriptures is a mythological creature to me – should I therefore spell Yeshu ben Miriam “yeshu ben miriam” to indicate that he is nothing but a mythological figure to me – on par with Zeus, Vishnu, Innana etc.?

Curl #3: “Just remember when it’s a character like Zeus god of lightning, it’s a small g but when it comes to The Creator of Life, it’s spelled with a capital G.”

How do you know Who is the Creator of Life? – For all we know it might just be Zeus, or Ganesha, or Shiva or Baal. You really cannot know that.

Curl #4: A member here has a disturbing page icon, at least it is to me, that reads “All Gods Are One God.” She/he is a good person-I’m sure-and has the right to express her/his oppinoin however they choose, but Christians-like myself-believe in ONLY ONE GOD.

Exactly – she has the right to believe and express that belief anyway she pleases. That you are a Xian and believe as you do should have no bearing on anyone else’s behavior – but yours, and you just managed to tie yourself a nice little intellectual noose made up of 4 curls – happy hanging!

Besides, being a Xian, you actually believe in three G-ds – you just roll them into one so they “fit” into scriptures you stole from the Jewish People.

A hypocrite and a thief…hm.

    What’s really interesting is that Jesus (according to the Gospel of John) actually spoke of the Father (G_d) being greater than him, and that the Son could do nothing for himself, but what the Father does and the Son does likewise. So there is no way, according to the words of Jesus Himself, that he would be in any way equal to God! Quite the contrary! That Jesus spoke with the authority of G_d in no way means he was God’s equal, let alone G_d himself. President Bush could send Secretary of State Condaleeza Rice to speak on his behalf at the United Nations, but that would in no way make her equal to or the same as the President! What a stunningly ridiculous error on the part of the early Christians, who were clearly influenced more by pagan philosophy than the Jewish theology that Christianity originally evolved from!

    Correct, if it had been like that, but it isn’t – the problem with the Greek Scripture is that it is wrought with contradictory statements.

    If you read all of John , and then understand that he was speaking Aramaic, not Greek, you will realize that he was consistently referring to Exodus 3:14 whenever he said “I am”that was why they wanted to stone him several times in John. and elsewhere – because he did indeed claim to be G-d, which is blasphemy in Judaism.

    They could have dealt easily with his claims to be the Moshiach – John 4:25-26 – he wouldn’t be the first Jew to claim that, nor was he the last, but claiming to be G-d – that could have only one out-come, according to Jewish law.
