Our God is a God of love.

Christians love you enough to tell you the truth, in spite of how much they will be hated for doing it.

Christians want Muslims to come to know the truth, and the God of love!

God loves Muslims!

The reason this is made public is because the person in question specifically asked for public forum posting and to bring issues to light with accusations against me. I am completely willing to discuss all claims, apologizing if I can be shown and convinced where I have erred.

Another reason this is made public is that the name of my God has been insulted and attacked, and I was given very limited opportunity to respond, being repeatedly told to "shut up".

When His name is attacked, I will stand to honor the name of the God of love who has washed me of my sin in His blood and made me His own child and given me the right to call Him Father.

If the person wishes to stand by his words and defend his words and call into question my behavior, I am here.

Also, easycompany has nothing to do with this at all. I don't quite understand most of what he is trying to say anyhow.

There is ample evidence Scripturally and historically for the following:

1. Jesus did many miracles during His ministry on earth

2. Jesus was crucified and died.

3. Jesus rose from the dead.

It's plastered all over the entire Bible. His disciples witnessed His death and resurrection. They were killed for telling the truth. No one would die for something they know is false. It is not Scripturally or historically refutable that Jesus died and rose from the dead.

It is because of the hardness of sinful hearts that the truth is rejected.

Everything in Scripture needs to be understood in the light of other Scripture.

In the story of Jonah, God sends Jonah to preach against Nineveh because it was a very wicked city.

Jonah does not want to, and gets on a boat to run away from God. God wants to give His love and mercy to sinful people, but Jonah actually wants the Ninevites to be destroyed, and perhaps fears what they may do to him if he confronts them.

No one can hide from God, of course, and Jonah's escape journey is interrupted by a raging storm. Jonah admits to the others on board that this is his fault, and asks to be thrown overboard. They comply. God sends a large water creature to swallow Jonah, where he stays for 3 days and 3 nights, and prays to God, who commands the great beast to vomit him out onto dry land.

God again commands Jonah to go preach to Nineveh. The Ninevites actually believe God and repent of their evil ways. A fast is declared (everyone refrained from eating and drinking) and put on sackcloth to humble themselves before God.

When Jonah saw that God was showing mercy to these wicked people, Jonah became very angry. Jonah says this is why he ran away, because he did not want these evil people to have God's mercy, but rather to be destroyed by God's just wrath for their wickedness.

There is much foreshadowing in the Bible, pointing to Jesus.

Jonah is one of many examples.

There are almost too many to list.

Abraham being asked to kill his son Isaac to show that he loves God more than his beloved son, and passing the test of ultimate love. This is a picture of God sacrificing His beloved Son Jesus Christ for all of us. Abraham's son is spared as he holds up the knife to slay his son.

A picture is a picture that points and foreshadows, but is not exact in all aspects.

The Bible must be looked at as a whole that all fits together. Everything in Scripture is centred on Christ sacrificed for our sin and raised back to life.

Pictures to demonstrate points are very common in Scripture:

John 15:5-8

5 “I am the vine; you are the branches. If you remain in me and I in you, you will bear much fruit; apart from me you can do nothing. 6 If you do not remain in me, you are like a branch that is thrown away and withers; such branches are picked up, thrown into the fire and burned. 7 If you remain in me and my words remain in you, ask whatever you wish, and it will be done for you. 8 This is to my Father’s glory, that you bear much fruit, showing yourselves to be my disciples.


Someone who is being just silly could say, oh see, Jesus said he was a plant. He is delusional and the Bible has a mistake in it! That's just being facetious.

It is obviously a picture to illustrate a truth, in this case, that our life comes from Christ, and without Him, we wither and die spiritually. All who are not rooted in Christ are spiritually dead and condemned by their own wickedness to spend eternity in hell, because they reject the grace and truth and salvation of God in Jesus Christ. Now is the time to repent. Now is the time to turn to the Lord on our knees and humble ourselves before a righteous and holy judge who now shows mercy through Jesus Christ. We do not even know when the time of grace will run out. All of us will one day take our last breath if Jesus does not first return in His glory to judge the world.

2 Corinthians 5:10

10 For we must all appear before the judgment seat of Christ, that each one may receive the things done in the body, according to what he has done, whether good or bad.


John 12:47-48

 47 And if anyone hears My words and does not believe, I do not judge him; for I did not come to judge the world but to save the world. 48 He who rejects Me, and does not receive My words, has that which judges him—the word that I have spoken will judge him in the last day.


That passage in John 12 says that the word of Christ found in Scripture, when men reject it, will be the very words that judge them. So these words you are reading right now quoted from Scripture, the words of Jesus Christ, if you choose to reject them and Him, if you reject His love and grace and mercy with which He SAVED THE WORLD, these words that you rejected and refused to believe will be the words that judge you in the end, either when Jesus comes back to judge the world, or when you die and face judgement.

Acts 10:34-43

34 Then Peter opened his mouth and said: “In truth I perceive that God shows no partiality. 35 But in every nation whoever fears Him and works righteousness is accepted by Him. 36 The word which God sent to the children of Israel, preaching peace through Jesus Christ—He is Lord of all— 37 that word you know, which was proclaimed throughout all Judea, and began from Galilee after the baptism which John preached: 38 how God anointed Jesus of Nazareth with the Holy Spirit and with power, who went about doing good and healing all who were oppressed by the devil, for God was with Him. 39 And we are witnesses of all things which He did both in the land of the Jews and in Jerusalem, whom they[e] killed by hanging on a tree. 40 Him God raised up on the third day, and showed Him openly, 41 not to all the people, but to witnesses chosen before by God, even to us who ate and drank with Him after He arose from the dead. 42 And He commanded us to preach to the people, and to testify that it is He who was ordained by God to be Judge of the living and the dead. 43 To Him all the prophets witness that, through His name, whoever believes in Him will receive remission of sins.”


Romans 14:10b-12

For we shall all stand before the judgment seat of Christ. 11 For it is written:

“As I live, says the Lord,
Every knee shall bow to Me,
And every tongue shall confess to God.”

12 So then each of us shall give account of himself to God.


Matthew 10:14

14 And whoever will not receive you nor hear your words, when you depart from that house or city, shake off the dust from your feet. 15 Assuredly, I say to you, it will be more tolerable for the land of Sodom and Gomorrah in the day of judgment than for that city!


Matthew 12:36-37

36 But I say to you that for every idle word men may speak, they will give account of it in the day of judgment. 37 For by your words you will be justified, and by your words you will be condemned.”


The passage you quoted comes right after these verses about the day of judgment.

38 Then some of the scribes and Pharisees answered, saying, “Teacher, we want to see a sign from You.”

39 But He answered and said to them, “An evil and adulterous generation seeks after a sign, and no sign will be given to it except the sign of the prophet Jonah. 40 For as Jonah was three days and three nights in the belly of the great fish, so will the Son of Man be three days and three nights in the heart of the earth. 41 The men of Nineveh will rise up in the judgment with this generation and condemn it, because they repented at the preaching of Jonah; and indeed a greater than Jonah is here.


Jesus said the men of Nineveh, whose barbaric and bloody, wicked ways were feared by surrounding nations, repented, and would judge and condemn the generation of unbelieving scribes and Pharisees.

The scribes and Pharisees were supposed to be the religious leaders and teachers, and they did not even believe in the Son of God that God had prophecied from old who came to fulfill the prophecies and save the world of its sins. They were trusting in their own good works and zealous following of laws and their blood relation to Abraham to save them. This is why Jesus said of them:

Matthew 5:20

 20 For I say to you, that unless your righteousness exceeds the righteousness of the scribes and Pharisees, you will by no means enter the kingdom of heaven.


Mark 12:38-40

38 Then He said to them in His teaching, “Beware of the scribes, who desire to go around in long robes, love greetings in the marketplaces, 39 the best seats in the synagogues, and the best places at feasts, 40 who devour widows’ houses, and for a pretense make long prayers. These will receive greater condemnation.”


The reason they would receive greater condemnation is because they were the leaders, who had been given Scripture to study and learn, who had all the opportunity to believe the words of Christ, but rejected Him.

Matthew 23 is devoted to Jesus crying woe to the scribes and Pharisees for their unbelief and rejection of Christ. Their works and attempts to follow the law were to look good for people, not out of love for God and neighbour.

Matthew 23:27-28

27 “Woe to you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! For you are like whitewashed tombs which indeed appear beautiful outwardly, but inside are full of dead men’s bones and all uncleanness. 28 Even so you also outwardly appear righteous to men, but inside you are full of hypocrisy and lawlessness.


They who were supposed to be the leaders and guides to point people to God, were lost in unbelief. They did not believe in Jesus, and being jealous of His influence, wanted to get rid of him, trying to catch Him saying something that they could get Him arrested for.

Luke 20:20-26

20 So they watched Him, and sent spies who pretended to be righteous, that they might seize on His words, in order to deliver Him to the power and the authority of the governor.

21 Then they asked Him, saying, “Teacher, we know that You say and teach rightly, and You do not show personal favoritism, but teach the way of God in truth: 22 Is it lawful for us to pay taxes to Caesar or not?”

23 But He perceived their craftiness, and said to them, “Why do you test Me? 24 Show Me a denarius. Whose image and inscription does it have?”

They answered and said, “Caesar’s.”

25 And He said to them, “Render therefore to Caesar the things that are Caesar’s, and to God the things that are God’s.”

26 But they could not catch Him in His words in the presence of the people. And they marveled at His answer and kept silent.


John 12:37-43

37 But although He had done so many signs before them, they did not believe in Him, 38 that the word of Isaiah the prophet might be fulfilled, which he spoke:

“Lord, who has believed our report?
And to whom has the arm of the Lord been revealed?”

39 Therefore they could not believe, because Isaiah said again:

40
“He has blinded their eyes and hardened their hearts,
Lest they should see with their eyes,
Lest they should understand with their hearts and turn,
So that I should heal them.”

41 These things Isaiah said when he saw His glory and spoke of Him.
Walk in the Light

42 Nevertheless even among the rulers many believed in Him, but because of the Pharisees they did not confess Him, lest they should be put out of the synagogue; 43 for they loved the praise of men more than the praise of God.


They loves the praise of men more than the praise of God.

That describes us today as well. When we care more about what other people think than what God thinks, we are being short-sighted fools, in light of the fact that God is the one who is going to judge the world and all of our thoughts, words, and actions.

We are so full of sin of every kind and are completely unable to save ourselves by our own efforts.

ONLY JESUS can save us.

After healing a lame man, Peter and John were arrested and questioned.

Acts 4:5-22

5 And it came to pass, on the next day, that their rulers, elders, and scribes, 6 as well as Annas the high priest, Caiaphas, John, and Alexander, and as many as were of the family of the high priest, were gathered together at Jerusalem. 7 And when they had set them in the midst, they asked, “By what power or by what name have you done this?”

8 Then Peter, filled with the Holy Spirit, said to them, “Rulers of the people and elders of Israel: 9 If we this day are judged for a good deed done to a helpless man, by what means he has been made well, 10 let it be known to you all, and to all the people of Israel, that by the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth, whom you crucified, whom God raised from the dead, by Him this man stands here before you whole. 11 This is the ‘stone which was rejected by you builders, which has become the chief cornerstone.’ 12 Nor is there salvation in any other, for there is no other name under heaven given among men by which we must be saved.”

13 Now when they saw the boldness of Peter and John, and perceived that they were uneducated and untrained men, they marveled. And they realized that they had been with Jesus. 14 And seeing the man who had been healed standing with them, they could say nothing against it. 15 But when they had commanded them to go aside out of the council, they conferred among themselves, 16 saying, “What shall we do to these men? For, indeed, that a notable miracle has been done through them is evident to all who dwell in Jerusalem, and we cannot deny it. 17 But so that it spreads no further among the people, let us severely threaten them, that from now on they speak to no man in this name.”

18 So they called them and commanded them not to speak at all nor teach in the name of Jesus. 19 But Peter and John answered and said to them, “Whether it is right in the sight of God to listen to you more than to God, you judge. 20 For we cannot but speak the things which we have seen and heard.” 21 So when they had further threatened them, they let them go, finding no way of punishing them, because of the people, since they all glorified God for what had been done. 22 For the man was over forty years old on whom this miracle of healing had been performed.


The name of Jesus was used by his disciples to heal the lame.

The name of Jesus is the ONLY NAME BY WHICH WE CAN BE SAVED.

The name of Jesus is hated by Satan and people who belong to Satan.

Jesus' followers and God's true prophets have been persecuted throughout the Bible by people who want to remain comfortable in their sins and unbelief.

God's Word is truth!

Jesus has given us salvation and righteousness.

It is ONLY the righteousness of Jesus Christ who lived a holy and sinless life that is good enough to get into heaven with.

The righteousness of Jesus Christ is the righteousness that exceeds the righteousness of the Pharisees and scribes.

2 Corinthians 5:20-21

20 Now then, we are ambassadors for Christ, as though God were pleading through us: we implore you on Christ’s behalf, be reconciled to God. 21 For He made Him who knew no sin to be sin for us, that we might become the righteousness of God in Him.


GOD IS PLEADING THROUGH HIS PEOPLE AND HIS WORD

BE RECONCILED TO GOD

GOD LOVES YOU

GOD WANTS YOU

Jesus Christ who had NO SIN was made sin for us, that is, our sins were placed on HIM, so the wrath of God that should have fallen on US, was placed on HIM, and the RIGHTEOUSNESS OF THE SINLESS SON OF GOD IS MADE OURS!!

That is how our righteousness exceeds that of the scribes and Pharisees! Not by our works! By the righteousness of JESUS CHRIST which we claim as our own through faith in Him!

1 Corinthians 1:30-31

30 But of Him you are in Christ Jesus, who became for us wisdom from God—and righteousness and sanctification and redemption— 31 that, as it is written, “He who glories, let him glory in the Lord.”


Phillippians 3:8-9

8 Yet indeed I also count all things loss for the excellence of the knowledge of Christ Jesus my Lord, for whom I have suffered the loss of all things, and count them as rubbish, that I may gain Christ 9 and be found in Him, not having my own righteousness, which is from the law, but that which is through faith in Christ, the righteousness which is from God by faith;


I thank you for sharing your thoughts and I pray that you will come to know the Lord Jesus Christ and His great love and mercy for you!

@Ze_sAiNt Thanks for sharing your thoughts. :)

You've focused on Luke 22, so I'll post the entire chapter here to look at:

Luke 22

The Plot to Kill Jesus

Now the Feast of Unleavened Bread drew near, which is called Passover. 2 And the chief priests and the scribes sought how they might kill Him, for they feared the people.

3 Then Satan entered Judas, surnamed Iscariot, who was numbered among the twelve. 4 So he went his way and conferred with the chief priests and captains, how he might betray Him to them. 5 And they were glad, and agreed to give him money. 6 So he promised and sought opportunity to betray Him to them in the absence of the multitude.
Jesus and His Disciples Prepare the Passover

7 Then came the Day of Unleavened Bread, when the Passover must be killed. 8 And He sent Peter and John, saying, “Go and prepare the Passover for us, that we may eat.”

9 So they said to Him, “Where do You want us to prepare?”

10 And He said to them, “Behold, when you have entered the city, a man will meet you carrying a pitcher of water; follow him into the house which he enters. 11 Then you shall say to the master of the house, ‘The Teacher says to you, “Where is the guest room where I may eat the Passover with My disciples?”’ 12 Then he will show you a large, furnished upper room; there make ready.”

13 So they went and found it just as He had said to them, and they prepared the Passover.

Jesus Institutes the Lord’s Supper

14 When the hour had come, He sat down, and the twelve apostles with Him. 15 Then He said to them, “With fervent desire I have desired to eat this Passover with you before I suffer; 16 for I say to you, I will no longer eat of it until it is fulfilled in the kingdom of God.”

17 Then He took the cup, and gave thanks, and said, “Take this and divide it among yourselves; 18 for I say to you, I will not drink of the fruit of the vine until the kingdom of God comes.”

19 And He took bread, gave thanks and broke it, and gave it to them, saying, “This is My body which is given for you; do this in remembrance of Me.”

20 Likewise He also took the cup after supper, saying, “This cup is the new covenant in My blood, which is shed for you. 21 But behold, the hand of My betrayer is with Me on the table. 22 And truly the Son of Man goes as it has been determined, but woe to that man by whom He is betrayed!”

23 Then they began to question among themselves, which of them it was who would do this thing.

The Disciples Argue About Greatness

24 Now there was also a dispute among them, as to which of them should be considered the greatest. 25 And He said to them, “The kings of the Gentiles exercise lordship over them, and those who exercise authority over them are called ‘benefactors.’ 26 But not so among you; on the contrary, he who is greatest among you, let him be as the younger, and he who governs as he who serves. 27 For who is greater, he who sits at the table, or he who serves? Is it not he who sits at the table? Yet I am among you as the One who serves.

28 “But you are those who have continued with Me in My trials. 29 And I bestow upon you a kingdom, just as My Father bestowed one upon Me, 30 that you may eat and drink at My table in My kingdom, and sit on thrones judging the twelve tribes of Israel.”

Jesus Predicts Peter’s Denial

31 And the Lord said, “Simon, Simon! Indeed, Satan has asked for you, that he may sift you as wheat. 32 But I have prayed for you, that your faith should not fail; and when you have returned to Me, strengthen your brethren.”

33 But he said to Him, “Lord, I am ready to go with You, both to prison and to death.”

34 Then He said, “I tell you, Peter, the rooster shall not crow this day before you will deny three times that you know Me.”

Supplies for the Road

35 And He said to them, “When I sent you without money bag, knapsack, and sandals, did you lack anything?”

So they said, “Nothing.”

36 Then He said to them, “But now, he who has a money bag, let him take it, and likewise a knapsack; and he who has no sword, let him sell his garment and buy one. 37 For I say to you that this which is written must still be accomplished in Me: ‘And He was numbered with the transgressors.’ For the things concerning Me have an end.”

38 So they said, “Lord, look, here are two swords.”

And He said to them, “It is enough.”

The Prayer in the Garden

39 Coming out, He went to the Mount of Olives, as He was accustomed, and His disciples also followed Him. 40 When He came to the place, He said to them, “Pray that you may not enter into temptation.”

41 And He was withdrawn from them about a stone’s throw, and He knelt down and prayed, 42 saying, “Father, if it is Your will, take this cup away from Me; nevertheless not My will, but Yours, be done.” 43 Then an angel appeared to Him from heaven, strengthening Him. 44 And being in agony, He prayed more earnestly. Then His sweat became like great drops of blood falling down to the ground.

45 When He rose up from prayer, and had come to His disciples, He found them sleeping from sorrow. 46 Then He said to them, “Why do you sleep? Rise and pray, lest you enter into temptation.”

Betrayal and Arrest in Gethsemane

47 And while He was still speaking, behold, a multitude; and he who was called Judas, one of the twelve, went before them and drew near to Jesus to kiss Him. 48 But Jesus said to him, “Judas, are you betraying the Son of Man with a kiss?”

49 When those around Him saw what was going to happen, they said to Him, “Lord, shall we strike with the sword?” 50 And one of them struck the servant of the high priest and cut off his right ear.

51 But Jesus answered and said, “Permit even this.” And He touched his ear and healed him.

52 Then Jesus said to the chief priests, captains of the temple, and the elders who had come to Him, “Have you come out, as against a robber, with swords and clubs? 53 When I was with you daily in the temple, you did not try to seize Me. But this is your hour, and the power of darkness

Peter Denies Jesus, and Weeps Bitterly

54 Having arrested Him, they led Him and brought Him into the high priest’s house. But Peter followed at a distance. 55 Now when they had kindled a fire in the midst of the courtyard and sat down together, Peter sat among them. 56 And a certain servant girl, seeing him as he sat by the fire, looked intently at him and said, “This man was also with Him.”

57 But he denied Him,[f] saying, “Woman, I do not know Him.”

58 And after a little while another saw him and said, “You also are of them.”

But Peter said, “Man, I am not!”

59 Then after about an hour had passed, another confidently affirmed, saying, “Surely this fellow also was with Him, for he is a Galilean.”

60 But Peter said, “Man, I do not know what you are saying!”

Immediately, while he was still speaking, the rooster crowed. 61 And the Lord turned and looked at Peter. Then Peter remembered the word of the Lord, how He had said to him, “Before the rooster crows, you will deny Me three times.” 62 So Peter went out and wept bitterly.
Jesus Mocked and Beaten

63 Now the men who held Jesus mocked Him and beat Him. 64 And having blindfolded Him, they struck Him on the face and asked Him, saying, “Prophesy! Who is the one who struck You?” 65 And many other things they blasphemously spoke against Him.
Jesus Faces the Sanhedrin

66 As soon as it was day, the elders of the people, both chief priests and scribes, came together and led Him into their council, saying, 67 “If You are the Christ, tell us.”

But He said to them, “If I tell you, you will by no means believe. 68 And if I also ask you, you will by no means answer Me or let Me go.  69 Hereafter the Son of Man will sit on the right hand of the power of God.”

70 Then they all said, “Are You then the Son of God?”

So He said to them, “You rightly say that I am.”

71 And they said, “What further testimony do we need? For we have heard it ourselves from His own mouth.”



If I were to highlight everything in the Bible that prophesies Jesus' death and the work of salvation He knowingly and willingly endured for us on the cross, I would likely go through several highlighters in the task. Pasting the entirety of the Bible on here would likely not be read here, but most people here have a Bible or more at home, and anyone who has online access can find the Bible online to read.

Even in this one chapter that you brought up, you can see Jesus said, "before I suffer", and said this would be the last time He eats and drinks the Passover until the Kingdom of God comes. He said "My body given for you" and "My blood shed for you."  It is very, very plain and clear from Scripture that Jesus both knew what was going to happen and was willing to carry out the plan to save humankind with His own innocent death at the hands of sinful man.

You need to look at the entirety of Scripture to best understand it.

So, why swords?

Let's look closely:

Verses 35-38

35 And He said to them, “When I sent you without money bag, knapsack, and sandals, did you lack anything?”

So they said, “Nothing.”

36 Then He said to them, “But now, he who has a money bag, let him take it, and likewise a knapsack; and he who has no sword, let him sell his garment and buy one. 37 For I say to you that this which is written must still be accomplished in Me: ‘And He was numbered with the transgressors.’ For the things concerning Me have an end.”

38 So they said, “Lord, look, here are two swords.”

And He said to them, “It is enough.”


Jesus said there is a prophecy that still needs to be fulfilled, namely, that He was numbered with the transgressors. He wanted to be arrested, so He could fulfill this prophecy and carry out the work He came to do of saving us, in His great love.

He needed to be numbered with the transgressors. He wanted his group to look like armed rebels so that they would not hesitate to arrest Him.

TWO SWORDS against a multitude of armed men with swords and clubs, Jesus said were "enough". It was enough to number him with the transgressors and fulfill the prophecy, in spite of Him having done nothing wrong, no sin at all, ever in His life.

If He meant to fight, two swords against a multitude would be a joke.

One of His disciples who misunderstood His intentions struck the ear off the servant of the high priest, and Jesus healed it.

To claim that Jesus was actually wanting to fight against this arrest with violence is laughable.

Jesus had complete power, not only to heal His enemies' amputated body parts, but also to overthrow the entire mob with the breath of His mouth.

2 Thessalonians 2:8

8 And then the lawless one will be revealed, whom the Lord Jesus will overthrow with the breath of his mouth and destroy by the splendor of his coming.


Here we again see Jesus claiming to be God, and the hostile witness accusing Him of blasphemy for claiming to be God. It is the primary reason they wanted to kill Him, blasphemy, for saying He was God. And He said He was God because He IS GOD.

Luke 22:66-71

66 As soon as it was day, the elders of the people, both chief priests and scribes, came together and led Him into their council, saying, 67 “If You are the Christ, tell us.”

But He said to them, “If I tell you, you will by no means believe. 68 And if I also ask you, you will by no means answer Me or let Me go.  69 Hereafter the Son of Man will sit on the right hand of the power of God.”

70 Then they all said, “Are You then the Son of God?”

So He said to them, “You rightly say that I am.”

71 And they said, “What further testimony do we need? For we have heard it ourselves from His own mouth.”



JESUS IS LORD

John 1:1

In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.


John 10:30

30 I and My Father are one.


John 20:28

28 And Thomas answered and said to Him, “My Lord and my God!


Colossians 1:19

19 For it pleased the Father that in Him all the fullness should dwell,


Colossians 2:9

9 For in Him dwells all the fullness of the Godhead bodily;


2 Peter 1:1

Simon Peter, a bondservant and apostle of Jesus Christ,

To those who have obtained like precious faith with us by the righteousness of our God and Savior Jesus Christ:


Hebrews 1:8

8 But to the Son He says:

“Your throne, O God, is forever and ever;
A scepter of righteousness is the scepter of Your kingdom.


Phillippians 3:20-21

20 For our citizenship is in heaven, from which we also eagerly wait for the Savior, the Lord Jesus Christ, 21 who will transform our lowly body that it may be conformed to His glorious body, according to the working by which He is able even to subdue all things to Himself.



Jesus is God!

And He loves you so incredibly much, that He did both knowingly and willingly come here to this sinful earth to be hated, abused and killed by sinful men that He loved and wanted to save, when He had complete power to destroy them with the breath of His mouth, or a word, all to save you and me from our sins!! Jesus is the Word of God that spoke creation into existence.

Colossians 1:16

9 For this reason we also, since the day we heard it, do not cease to pray for you, and to ask that you may be filled with the knowledge of His will in all wisdom and spiritual understanding; 10 that you may walk worthy of the Lord, fully pleasing Him, being fruitful in every good work and increasing in the knowledge of God; 11 strengthened with all might, according to His glorious power, for all patience and longsuffering with joy; 12 giving thanks to the Father who has qualified us to be partakers of the inheritance of the saints in the light. 13 He has delivered us from the power of darkness and conveyed us into the kingdom of the Son of His love, 14 in whom we have redemption through His blood,[c] the forgiveness of sins.

15 He is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn over all creation. 16 For by Him all things were created that are in heaven and that are on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or dominions or principalities or powers. All things were created through Him and for Him. 17 And He is before all things, and in Him all things consist. 18 And He is the head of the body, the church, who is the beginning, the firstborn from the dead, that in all things He may have the preeminence.

If God were not real, as you claim, you would not need to hate either Him or me.

You hate me because you hate God and I share His truth from the Bible.

He knew His people would be hated:

John 15:18-25

18 “If the world hates you, you know that it hated Me before it hated you. 19 If you were of the world, the world would love its own. Yet because you are not of the world, but I chose you out of the world, therefore the world hates you. 20 Remember the word that I said to you, ‘A servant is not greater than his master.’ If they persecuted Me, they will also persecute you. If they kept My word, they will keep yours also. 21 But all these things they will do to you for My name’s sake, because they do not know Him who sent Me. 22 If I had not come and spoken to them, they would have no sin, but now they have no excuse for their sin. 23 He who hates Me hates My Father also. 24 If I had not done among them the works which no one else did, they would have no sin; but now they have seen and also hated both Me and My Father. 25 But this happened that the word might be fulfilled which is written in their law, ‘They hated Me without a cause.’


Your claim: All the good players on the server hate you and trash talk you when you're not there.
Response: Human emotion or human behavior is not how truth is determined. A lot of players, including yourself, have been the target of hate and trash talk in their absence.

Your claim: You're not a real Christian because you did such-and-such action or have such and such attitude that I don't approve of.
Response: John 3:16  For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life.

Ephesians 2:1-9

And you He made alive, who were dead in trespasses and sins, 2 in which you once walked according to the course of this world, according to the prince of the power of the air, the spirit who now works in the sons of disobedience, 3 among whom also we all once conducted ourselves in the lusts of our flesh, fulfilling the desires of the flesh and of the mind, and were by nature children of wrath, just as the others.


4 But God, who is rich in mercy, because of His great love with which He loved us, 5 even when we were dead in trespasses, made us alive together with Christ (by grace you have been saved), 6 and raised us up together, and made us sit together in the heavenly places in Christ Jesus, 7 that in the ages to come He might show the exceeding riches of His grace in His kindness toward us in Christ Jesus. 8 For by grace you have been saved through faith, and that not of yourselves; it is the gift of God, 9 not of works, lest anyone should boast.

God's Word says faith is a gift for sinners. Those who believe in Jesus Christ as Savior from sin will be saved. It cannot be earned.

In this earthly life, we continue to sin and struggle, as we are still bound to this sinful flesh. I have many times said I am a sinner, deserving of hell. All of my forum posts on the topic acknowledge my own sinfulness before a holy God, that I need saving just as much as anyone else.

Romans 7 addresses the continual struggle with sin in a believer's life:

Romans 7:12-25

12 Therefore the law is holy, and the commandment holy and just and good.

13 Has then what is good become death to me? Certainly not! But sin, that it might appear sin, was producing death in me through what is good, so that sin through the commandment might become exceedingly sinful. 14 For we know that the law is spiritual, but I am carnal, sold under sin. 15 For what I am doing, I do not understand. For what I will to do, that I do not practice; but what I hate, that I do. 16 If, then, I do what I will not to do, I agree with the law that it is good. 17 But now, it is no longer I who do it, but sin that dwells in me. 18 For I know that in me (that is, in my flesh) nothing good dwells; for to will is present with me, but how to perform what is good I do not find. 19 For the good that I will to do, I do not do; but the evil I will not to do, that I practice. 20 Now if I do what I will not to do, it is no longer I who do it, but sin that dwells in me.

21 I find then a law, that evil is present with me, the one who wills to do good. 22 For I delight in the law of God according to the inward man. 23 But I see another law in my members, warring against the law of my mind, and bringing me into captivity to the law of sin which is in my members. 24 O wretched man that I am! Who will deliver me from this body of death? 25 I thank God—through Jesus Christ our Lord!

So then, with the mind I myself serve the law of God, but with the flesh the law of sin.


Your claim: You're a rotten, horrible, disgusting person and an awful wife because you masturbated to thoughts of other men.
Response: You're right. I'm guilty of adultery in my heart.

Matthew 5:27-28

27 “You have heard that it was said to those of old, ‘You shall not commit adultery.’ 28 But I say to you that whoever looks at a woman to lust for her has already committed adultery with her in his heart.


It was here that you made me cry because your accusations were true, and I did end up hurting people, including two men that I love and myself, and it hurts me to think of how I hurt other people. I told my husband a long time ago, and he still loves me and forgives me, and Jesus still loves me and forgives me. I asked the men involved for forgiveness as well. Your accusations cannot stand against me, because Jesus blood washes away ALL sins. I don't approve of that behavior, I don't do it anymore. Sometimes I'm weak and have lapses, but I fight it and know that God's holy will is good.

1 John 1:7b

the blood of Jesus Christ His Son cleanses us from all sin.



Your claim: You're a prideful narcissist. You're the most evil, disgusting piece of **** on the entire server." (followed by "I'm the only player that matters on the server. The server exists because of me. People play because of me. You're no one, you're nothing, you're irrelevant trash and nobody cares about you and nobody misses you when you're gone."

My response: "Narcissist: a person who has an excessive interest in or admiration of themselves." I think that fairly describes pretty much every living person alive today. It's a manifestation of our sinful condition, when we think more about ourselves than anyone else around us.

I do care about people, even you. I've prayed for you a number of times. I will continue to do so. If there is any believer in Christ reading this, I would ask that you please pray for me as well, that I may reflect Christ's love in my words and actions, even when I'm tempted to respond to hate with hate.

Your claim: You're delusional and stupid to believe the world was created by God. You're a moron to think I believe in evolution. This entire existence is something like a dream.
My response: If this entire existence is some kind of dream, then how can there be good and bad, right and wrong? Where does it come from? The same question applies if evolution is true. There are no moral absolutes if there is no God to be the source of morality and truth. Yet you're judging me based on moral absolutes, that some things are wrong, and that some things are right, even though you yourself claim to not believe in moral absolutes. You're accusing me of being a judgemental hypocrite, yet if there is no God, then there's nothing wrong with being a judgemental hypocrite, or a racist, or a pervert, or a rapist, or a murderer. There's no law giver, so right and wrong would just be whatever someone feels like doing.

Your claim: I'm trying to help you become a better person (by telling you you're a worthless piece of evil, disgusting **** with absolutely no hope other than just try harder to become better according to my arbitrary personal standards that mostly involve not standing up to me and not questioning me and accepting any bullying or abuse of yourself or others without complaint)
My response: We are in agreement that I, along with all of humanity, are flawed, broken, fallen, sinful, disgusting, messed up, and in NEED OF RESCUE. We can't save ourselves. We can't make ourselves better. We can't climb out of our cess pool of filth.

ONLY JESUS CAN SAVE US!

Your condemnation of me is followed with no hope. Absolutely no hope. No help. No consolation. Just hate. God's law condemns us all, but God, in His great love, offers us real hope, the only hope. Jesus Christ came into the world to save sinners, of whom I am the worst!

1 Timothy 1:8-17

8 But we know that the law is good if one uses it lawfully, 9 knowing this: that the law is not made for a righteous person, but for the lawless and insubordinate, for the ungodly and for sinners, for the unholy and profane, for murderers of fathers and murderers of mothers, for manslayers, 10 for fornicators, for sodomites, for kidnappers, for liars, for perjurers, and if there is any other thing that is contrary to sound doctrine, 11 according to the glorious gospel of the blessed God which was committed to my trust.

12 And I thank Christ Jesus our Lord who has enabled me, because He counted me faithful, putting me into the ministry, 13 although I was formerly a blasphemer, a persecutor, and an insolent man; but I obtained mercy because I did it ignorantly in unbelief. 14 And the grace of our Lord was exceedingly abundant, with faith and love which are in Christ Jesus. 15 This is a faithful saying and worthy of all acceptance, that Christ Jesus came into the world to save sinners, of whom I am chief. 16 However, for this reason I obtained mercy, that in me first Jesus Christ might show all longsuffering, as a pattern to those who are going to believe on Him for everlasting life. 17 Now to the King eternal, immortal, invisible, to God who alone is wise,[a] be honor and glory forever and ever. Amen.


God is love, and He did create you, and He does love you.

None of us deserve it. I don't deserve His love or grace or mercy or forgiveness any more than you do.

Romans 3:23

23 for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God


Your claim: You should make a public forum post telling everyone what you did.
My response: I typed it out to you, sent it by private message, asking if it was what you wanted, and you said "I'm not gonna read it. I don't give a ****." This shows that you are not interested in any kind of reconciliation. There is no way to get back into your good books once someone has committed the transgression of standing up to you in any way. You are determined to hate me, regardless of anything I do or don't do from here on out. You told me to never join your games again. You've clearly also influenced others to ban me from games where I was previously welcome. I've respected that and have not joined your games anymore. But you joined mine to lambast me with hate and accusations of all kinds from out of nowhere, so this isn't just you wanting to be away from me. This is you wanting to tear me down and destroy me and make me feel hated and unwanted. You were glad when you made me cry, you said.

We can't cure ourselves, but Jesus can heal us. I'm nothing, just one of many countless sinners that have been saved by Jesus.

You said you wanted me to bring ages-old forum jokes/trolls/games up, I am willing, but all of that happened within a context, and that context would also be a part of it.

Yes, that's right, compared with 5 who said they were satisfied.

8>5

Old bans, or bans for infractions that occurred prior to the posting of this post, including the three mentioned here, will fall under the old ban policy.

Read it again, a little slower.

More than half of voters (ie. the majority) indicated they are dissatisfied with the behavior of other users on the server.


Tora, you're just spamming the thread with videos you haven't even watched.

Do you actually have anything to say?

Any thoughts or opinions or information that has actually passed through your head?

Your ban occurred under the old ban system (one offense and permabanned with one chance for redemption via community service).

The new ban system is for future bans.

You are still banned.

You don't seem to understand the concept of free speech.

Free speech means the freedom to express and discuss ideas, viewpoints, opinions, beliefs, openly.

Death threats, sexual harassment, false criminal accusations, and other types of hateful slander are not part of free speech.

The same concept applies to freedom in life.

Freedom means you can choose what education you want to pursue, if any. You can choose what medical treatment you want, if any. You can choose where you live, where you travel, whom you marry, if anyone, what type of clothing you want to wear, what books you read, you can choose to leave the country, how many children you want to have, if any. You can freely go to restaurants, movies, concerts, sporting events, educational seminars, fairs, and so on. You can start your own business that you choose how to operate. Your personal freedom is essentially limited only when it starts to impinge on the freedom of others to enjoy their freedom.

Ie. Blasting loud music at 1 am will deprive your neighbors of peace and sleep.

Real freedom does not allow unrestricted freedom to hurt other people.

Laws against killing, raping, stealing, etc. are not laws against freedom, but rather for freedom and protection.

Rules against malicious slander, sexual harassment, racist comments, or foul language are a protection to promote freedom and enjoyment for people, not a lack of freedom.

People can discuss all kinds of topics and share all kinds of arguments and facts and discussion in the Moderated Section.

Useless, continuous "You're a retard!" "No, you're a retard!" are actually restricting the freedom of people to freely discuss issues in a mature fashion.

If a black person came to W2 forum and saw "i hate naggers" and "claw the racist" and all the anti-black hate in the flame thread section of these forums, how welcome and "free" do you think he would feel in this environment?

Many smart people I've spoken to personally don't want to engage in the forums because the main forum posters who dominate the forum in post numbers are posting very low quality, offensive content that is not worth engaging, essentially hindering the freedom of those people who would be posting more productive, interesting, humorous, thought-provoking content.

Blid, is it me you want to obliterate with your tanks, or free speech?

What's your reasoning?

With your KKK acronym, and the remarks of others, the implication is that I'm "racist".

This claim does not stand up to logic.

God made all people, God values and loves the people He made. I am against racism, as is God.

The videos I've shared contain people reading Arab writings, and Arab people sharing their experiences. If someone is against reading Arab writings and against Arab people sharing their experiences, that person is the racist. Arab people are also created by God and Jesus died for them too.

Former violent gang member Bryon Widner had his racist tattoos painfully REMOVED after becoming a Christian.

This label of racism is false and groundless.

If you truly were so against racism, you would have reined in Claw long ago, who actually called himself "the racist" and "i hate naggers". I would not have allowed names like these to stand.

Sexism is another form of showing discrimination and hate for someone because of who they were at birth. You allow blatant sexist comments and hatred and objectification of women.

You have watched people spam me with hate, insults, and death wishes, so don't pretend to be universally concerned with people's feelings.
