I’m a Christian and this kind of stuff is hilarious because the Pastor is taking the quote out of context and making himself look like an idiot to everyone else 😂
@cluper, I think it’s unfortunate because it makes us look stupid too :(
@Sloth5050, This is true. But I would hope it would discourage others from trying to post out of context stuff.
@cluper, well, he also misquoted Exodus 20:16. It says "You shall not give false witness against your neighbor." Nothing in there about being an eyewitness. This is another example of the evangelicals selling out
@cluper, also, Pastor Hagee has said that Hitler was a spiritual leader in the Catholic church, and that the Catholic Church encourages nazism.
@cluper, i agree with u guys but also like. The guy who commented back is wrong. Talking about the events of the bible is not gossiping its teaching or conversating. Gossip is a form of rumor spreading but in the eyes of a christian the events of the bible are 100% fact.
@tylersmileyface, the commenter wasn’t necessarily saying that the the Bible was invalid but what the gospel says in that we are to share it. According to this Pastor, if you weren’t there, you’re a false witness, if that’s the case, then by his logic reading the Bible, believing it, following what it says, and then sharing it, is being a false witness. The commenter is pointing out how ridiculous this logic is, not saying that the Bible is wrong.
@cluper, you are missing my point. The pastor doesnt say that. The bible does (its actually misquoted but we’ll say it isn’t). The pastor then further elaborates by explaining if you didnt see it then you shouldnt GOSSIP about it. Therefore, the counter argument about his tweet making the logic invalid is.. well.. invalid because talking about the bible isnt gossip it is teaching or discussing because christians believe the bible is 100% fact. U see what i mean now?
@cluper, gossip isnt talking about fact its talking about rumor. Therefore, saying that what the pastor said invalidates the bible is wrong.
@occasionalmutant, Ahhh, so not only does he have faulty logic and quote the Bible completely out of context, he also likes to use History Channel fiction specials as facts! This is definitely a guy you want to follow 😂
He also discredited all of journalism
@bobbylupo, they kind of did that to themselves before he got there.
His intent is good, gossip gets pretty annoying.
We might need some holy water for that burn...
I think the word you're looking for is admission
That's kinda what the Bible does. Covers every base and contradicts itself in doing so.
Bad context aside, I definately believe in "proof or it didn't happen".
Maybe use something like..
Do not let any unwholesome talk come out of your mouths, but only what is helpful for building others up according to their needs, that it may benefit those who listen.
Whoever conceals hatred with lying lips
and spreads slander is a fool.
Keep your tongue from evil and your lips from telling lies.
Lots of good options...
That's not what gossiping means you moron 😂
