comment How is the parable of the Rich Man and Lazarus interpreted?
@DJClayworth, and what exactly gives you the impression that you know the majority vs. the minority? I mean I take it you've spoken to every person who calls themselves a Christian and ran some statistics on them surrounding every possible topic?

comment How is the parable of the Rich Man and Lazarus interpreted?
@DJClayworth, it appears from this post and others of mine you dislike me, and that's really quite alright, but I'm not sure what you definition of Christians is. Clearly you believe I stand outside that camp, but quite the contrary. Remember, my answers may be in the minority, but Jesus fell in the same category with the Pharisees, you may remember when he spoke to 5,000 and all went away but twelve and even one of them was a devil. Do I come on too strong for you? What is it that you're looking for? Maybe only people who see the bible the way you do?

comment What is the difference between a church and a social club?
@JimG, so what you're saying is you'd prefer both a newer version of the Bible because the KJV apparently is an invalid translation and you'd prefer somebody's opinion over the Word? Sorry friend but I won't be able to do that, please see 2 Timothy 2:15 - answering questions with the Word of God alone is the way things should be answered, that's why God gave us His Word, right?

comment Is saying “Oh My God” really using God's name in vain?
@DavidStratton, I gladly use scripture, and if you take a look over my other answers I hope you will be happy with those. But I was berated for using too much scripture and too long answers. I really didn't care honestly, but I'm trying to make sure I'm not overbearing.

@JimG., I fail to see how the scripture I cited is not applicable to answering the question. Are you able to expand on that or do you just not want to read answers that are complete by the mouth of two or three witnesses?

comment Is there anything unique to a christian marriage that non-christian marriages are deprived of?
I meant I would love to, but my phone felt you was the more appropriate choice apparently.

Thank you @Sticmann, I would love you share my views on these other things. If you wanted to post a question on the forum I will be glad to answer, or if you want to do it more personally my email address is on my profile, you can drop me a line and we can converse that way or even possibly over the phone.

comment How is the parable of the Rich Man and Lazarus interpreted?
@DJClayworth, I understand that, but if you'll read my division of the Word objectively I think you'll understand why I don't believe it's a parable. It's hard to swallow, and a good majority may reject it, but is my division of the Word not sound? Do you think God forgot to include the preface that it was a parable?

@AffableGeek, thanks for bringing up the fact that not everybody believes it's a parable. In fact my answer clearly shows there's somebody out there that doesn't, me. Although there is a down voter out there somewhere too cowardly to comment. Which is funny to me because in an online forum you don't even really have to face me, but I digress.
