Since the troll landed on it, most people have stopped reading it (not that I blame them). It has led to this thought though. This constant insistence people have that they must "defend their faith" when they really mean they must defend themselves from people who disagree with them personally. How does that behavior coincide with Philippians 2?
3 Do nothing out of selfish ambition or vain conceit. Rather, in humility value others above yourselves, 4 not looking to your own interests but each of you to the interests of the others.
If you insist that someone disagreeing with you personally requires you to "defend your faith", even as others who practice your same faith are disagreeing with you, how are you acting in the interests of others, rather than your own vanity?
I think its pride i know when i start going at it with someone its because your not going to make me look stupid or like i cant handle myself. My thing is you shouldn't have to defend God or your religion someones always going to talk bad about it but if its true and something great people will see through all the b.s. said about it. But i do understand when a lie is being said about it or someone twisting it you do have a right to say they are taking it out of content or just straight out lying. I wuldnt stand by and listen to lies.

Why do unbelievers, feel that it's their responsibility to point out failings of believers?
You can play dirty pool, but when someone hands your balls back to you in the game, you pull this sort of thing.
I defend my faith when it is misrepresented, twisted and otherwise taken out of context and used by people who don't know or understand it outside of google searches.
You keep starting new threads so that you can belitte and berate those of faith. You constantly pointing out that we are not following our guidelines, but what are your guidelines? do you have any standards to live up to? Are they ever changing? No absolutes? No lines that you won't cross? Doesn't appear so.
I have never seen you ask a valid doctrinal or biblical question. Only baitish, immature, angry, self serving questions.
