    Definately, and how wonderful that Jesus is going to take down the system and bring a new beautiful one....Haven't we suffered enough? Don't we all love a good Clint Eastwood movie where the evil and bad guys is stopped no matter what it takes...??

    So, does that mean you wouldn't want Jesus as a friend because of the letters and Revelations, but Jehovah gets a pass for all the baby and sheep killing?

    Star Moore: Who are the 'bad guys' though? I know countless lovely people who don't accept Jesus as their saviour and yet JESUS in the GOSPEL OF JOHN tells me that they face the 'wrath of God' (John 3:36 ). I'm not sure I want Jesus as my friend.

    ... for sure, and like the language confusing? like, that's harsh man.

    Odrade: Its not just revelation and the letters that I have a problem with. The gospels too ( including John ) include 'bad Jesus' ( see above posting to Star Moore ). Don't worry 'bad Jehovah' makes me shudder just as much as 'bad Jesus'.

    So we've ascertained that you don't like Yah, Jesus, Born Again believers, you jump to conclusions about what people believe in a judgmental way, and probably a whole heap of other stuff, if we were to psychoanalyse ya.

    So remind me again whether this was a genuine question for discussion or a hook to preach your own gospel?

    LT, of the "content with his relationship with Christ" class.

    Jesus is as bad as the wicked Watchtower God. I would not want him as a friend unless I could talk some sense into him. He would have to give up on destroying people who don't believe in him. I would have to tell him about mental illness and gender ambiguity and a host of other things he is not aware of because the scientists of his time hadn't written any books about these things that he could read.

    But I suppose if he was willing to change I could take him fishing for a trial run.

    Mind pointing out where he killed someone and where he said anything that was ambiguous regarding gender???

    You've lost me with those two statements in particular.

    Little Toe: Had you you read my postings more carefully you may have come to the more measured conclusion that: I like the 'nice' bits about Jehovah and Jesus and born again Christians but not not the 'nasty' bits. I wasn't being judgemental of IP_SEC at all.

    As for the genuineness of my question, it was genuine in the sense that I was trying to help born again Christians to see that Jesus can be just as 'nasty' as the 'wicked Watchtower god' that they sometimes refer to.
