So, when a group agrees upon a curriculum, is it the minority that makes the decision, or the majority that makes the decisionÃ¢â‚¬Â¦
I think, if you were true to yourself, you would quit attempting to wriggle out of the facts, and face them squarely.
Most of the time yes, the majority. The point is that it is not a necessity
that it be the majority. People are capable of agreeing with things they don't like.
The problem here Arch, is you misunderstanding of the word transference. God made the rules, but your choice to ignore them is what sends you to hell, not God. When my children were young, they had rules that their mother and I set down for them. If they didnÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t abide by these rules, they faced the consciousness. If they followed the rules, life was good (extremely good).
I have no doubt that your rules were fair and carried out lovingly. But, if your child didn't obey one of your rules, who was it who dished out the punishment? Yes, it is the child's choice to disobey, but it is still your choice whether to ground them or not.
Now, you are attempting to transfer the responsibility for their punishment on me with your illogic. Much like you are attempting to transfer the guilt upon God for your failure to follow His rules. What if you were caught speeding? Would you attempt to transfer the guilt on the police officer because he pulled you over for the traffic violation? Would you say Ã¢â‚¬Å“you made me speedÃ¢â‚¬Â!!!! LetÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s see how that works for you in traffic court.
Rolf, no the choice to speed is my own
The choice to punish
me for speeding is the police officers and the courts.
But, facts are facts; you send yourself to hell by your own choices.
No, my choices give God the choice to send me to hell. The power to do so, and to not do so, is still His.
No Arch, you were attempting to make it look as though you and Scott were on the same sheet of music, while the whole time you are book shelves apart. And I see the hypocrisy in your attempting to tell someone they cannot comment to another member, while all the while you enjoy (within the rules) to comment all you like.
What? What! WHAT!? I NEVER
implied anyone here could not make any comment they like. I found a comment by another poster amusing, and chose to comment on it. That is all.
