If someone wonders why I removed the Konqueror-background, this is why: I recently encountered a christian website which purported to tell the truth about the so-called "Star of David". First of all, it stated that it's not "of God by any stretch of imagination", instead it said it was produced under the rule of the apostate King Solomon. As some people may know, he was a very godly man, but when he was old, he fell away from God and raised altars for false gods. It is from here that it is believed that the hexagon symbol was picked up. So it's probably not christian, at all - maybe it's occult? I have not really confirmed this information, but it's looks like it's the truth. It was quite chocking. Actually, even some Rabbis have opposed this symbol. It may be mentioned in Scripture. Amos the prophet says: "But ye have borne the tabernacle of your Moloch and Chiun your images, the star of your god, which ye made to yourselves." (Am. 5:26)

I have a responsibility if I fear God, and I removed the image. I changed the license - if that is possible (I believe it is) - to "destructionware". This means: If you have downloaded the "Shield of David-II" etc. ".png" background, please remove it. Press shift-delete.

This was the site where I found the information:

ArbitraryReason: Are you referring to my faith or the artwork? If you are referring to my faith, then why don't you "keep it to your self"?

Of course, I understand that you are really attacking my faith. I have all the rights in the world to believe what I believe, and still post images as a member of KDE-Look.

No harm made, though.

link97381: Thanks a lot.

But for the screenshot, Konqueror is a very versatile application. No-one uses it simply to view some small icons. I use it to even read the Holy Bible, using the sword:/ protocol.

This is relevant because, as many Christians probably will download the image, will appreciate it. Remember it's a screenshot on the usage of Konqueror by a christian believer. It does pretty clearly express how I use Konqueror using the background I posted. I took care to only include the window and chose the most relevant biblical verse. There is nothing forbidding you to click on the tiny 2.9kb png-image download (only 2 colors).

A lot of people are advertising stuff in screenshots, beside what they are really uploading, such as movies, nudity, violence etc. So whats wrong with quoting the Book of Life??

The impression is this: "You post things about violence, sex, curse God, all kind of evildoings, but the Bible is not allowed." (This would be rather strange, if the Word of God was just another book. But obviously in reality, it's the truth in everything it says, just like in Joh. 15:17-19.)
-

There is no such thing as "creationists". It's called science. Since there are no evidences whatsoever for the evolution-theory it cannot honestly be called "science". (Or, at least you may say that they are about at the same level.) The Bible is always ahead of science, though.

Belief in Jesus is a part of what I am. You can't separate me from my Lord. You will have to cut of my tongue. (I will then turn into a martyr.)

Since I am living in a godless society, I'm constantly wrapped "in your face" to what to believe, and what not to believe. The message beeing propagated is definitely not to live in a godly lifestyle. It's not to believe in God, or the Bible. I was therefore indoctrinated in school, to become a materialistic atheist. For instance, never once did I hear of that there are no evidences of evolution. I was wholly indoctrinated.

About my signature:

I've not said that anyone here is damned to Hell. If you don't believe in a literal Hell, then why even bother? It would be just a piece of artwork. Hell is an eternal fire. I've stopped cursing. I'm sure that a lot of people mentions "hell" all the time, yet they say they don't believe in it. But what's more strange - no one bother! But they should, because apart from sinning, they are negatively influencing people to do the same - to curse God and one another, instead of loving them enough to tell them the truth - that without Jesus you/they will be judged for theirs sins. Judge for yourself, if you will be judged to enter Heaven, or eternal flames of Hell. But the Bible is clear: Without Jesus all will be condemned; "for all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God." Jesus payed the price through His Blood as a sacrifice for sins so that we can be reconciled to God, and not be condemned.

"Jesus saves from Hell."

"The BBC reports that research into evolution's inner working has been named rtop science achievement of 2005 From the article: 'The prestigious US journal Science publishes its top 10 list of major endeavors at the end of each year. The number one spot was awarded jointly to several studies that illuminated the intricate workings of evolution. The announcement comes in the same week that a US court banned the teaching of intelligent design in classrooms.'"

Looks like the enemy's of the creation crusade have won a year end victory !


PS: Faith is not proof, can u prove God?, Jesus or the Holy G-string ??? The whole new testament is questionable, just ask any Jew, are all the Followers of Judaism going to hell?, all the Hindus, Buddhists, Catholics, pagans?

Hell was painted in such a way by the christian church anyway, is a scare tactic to gather the faithful, this list goes on and on,
Go scare some more small children with your demons and devil propaganda.......

And just for the record, if you seriously believe that the Universe was created in 6 days 4.5 thousand years ago, and we are the inbred product of just two humans who magically appeared YOU ARE INSANE !

We may not have all the answers to molecular biology "YET", but carbon 14 dating is accurate enough to make the bibles claim nothing but a fairy tale. If you can't acknowledge this, you really do have issues!

Thank you for being more kind this time! I appreciate it.

Dogmatic evolutionism is a philosophical standpoint not science.

You are correct that they, some intolerant evolution-believing dogmatics, are fighting the intelligent design movement with the zeal of a religious fundamentalist. But people should not be afraid of any science. They don't allow any criticism!

(Do you know that in North Korea, the koreans are indoctrinated by the authorities to believe that the surrounding world lives in chaos, that it's full of murderers etc. and that North Korea is a paradise? It's a crime to mention God. If you own a Bible, they will torture you, and cast you in jail along with your whole family. It's an utterly evil nation.)

If evolutionism truly was science, then they would encourage criticism, but obviously, that's what they are afraid of. What are they afraid of? The light has nothing to hide. True truth can stand against false accusations. I've read far enough to know that even secular scientists are questioning the so-called "evidences" of evolution. It's very specular. Most people (in the west, not in the US) believe in it because they have been told it's true. They don't know. They have never read any criticism. They don't know that there aren't any transitional species. They have searched for 130 years. There should be millions of them among fossils. There are none! (In others words: There have never been any historical evolution.) Information does not come out of nothing, and of course, no new information can come into existence regardles of how many "millions of years". (This proves evolution impossible.) There are so many problems with the evolution-theory, that from a strict scientific standpoint, it is not true. It is false.

But according to the evolutionists themselves, they still choose to believe in it, knowing these problems, because the only reasonable OTHER explanation, is to believe in an intelligent being, i.e. God. And they "don't" believe in God. We see the point.

There's no problem to believe that an almighty, transcendent God created the universe, no problem. It's fair logic. Everything that exists has a cause. Nothing comes out of nothing. I don't have to be very deep here. God transcends space and time, "the creation".

No, I can't prove God. But God speaks to the conscience. He does not force anyone to believe. But I do know out of personal experience, i.e. supernatural experiences, that there is a spirit world and there is a God. "Everyone who is of the truth hears my voice", Jesus said.

I'm sorry if you feel that Hell according to you is just a message to scare people into "believing". But truly you understand that Hell is not enough to make people believe at all. You have to realize WHY Jesus died on the Cross. It was to redeem mankind so that we will not be condemnded (end up in Hell). This was the mission of Jesus Christ. God is very holy, and righteous. No unrepented, unforgiven sinner will enter Heaven.

Man is fallen (think about fallen angels). He is sinful. Therefore, he must become a new creature. He must be born again to enter Heaven.

When I was saved, born again, and filled with the Holy Spirit, I suddenly realized that I had stopped cursing. I realized that I had started to love people. My spiritual eyes were opened. Previously i didn't understand the Bible, but now I did. I did get fair proof.

Through belief in Jesus and confession of our sins (once!) we will be forgiven. We will receive the ticket to Heaven. And it's free! This is the 'good news'. Also, we will as a bonus get a much better life here on earth. Jesus heals from diseases and sicknesses. He restores marriages, relations etc. In short: He is God's solution to every problem.

"Heaven on earth."

People also should know that Intelligent Design has nothing to do with what non-theistic people mention as "religion". Intelligent Design is a science in the same respect as evolution, in other words an alternative theory. Thus, I don't "believe" in ID, I just claim that it's closer to the the truth than evolution. If science points to a supernatural Creator, then so be it. We should never be afraid of the truth.

Nowadays some of the nominal so-called "christian" Churched don't even teach 'Hell', because they are apostate. They have forgotten why Jesus died for them.

But what did Jesus say? [in fact, in the context he said it to the apostate religious leaders, the pharisees, not ordinary men.] "how can ye escape the damnation of hell?" (Matt 23:33)

Frightening, absolutely. We can't escape damnation by simply "doing good". Good deeds does not save. It's only through belief in the One whom God sent we can be saved. Jesus took our punishment, He payed the price for our sins. His blood was the sacrifice for our sins. This is God's plan of salvation.

So, if we accept what God's Son did for us, then we will not be found guilty on the Judgement Day. Call on the name of the Lord Jesus and you shall be saved. It's easy to call on the name of the Lord. "Today is the day of salvation."
...

The "fantastic" estimated years according to the theory of evolution is not enough to make evolution possible, even if it was. There's a lot of information about this... As for carbon 14, perhaps no concept in science is as misunderstood as "carbon dating". Carbon dating can not be used to date things like rocks and fossils. It's only useful for once-living things which still contain carbon, like flesh, bone or wood. It's a common misunderstanding that carbon 14 can date millions of years. Carbon 14 is limited to fifty thousand years. It might be useful in archaeology, but not in geology or paleontology.
Please not that creation scientists also work with theories. If there would arouse a problem, there are a number of ways to explain it.

The Holy Bible is a supernatural Book, penned by holy men of old "as they were moved of the Holy Ghost". You can't judge it by natural means. It's prophetic and speaks of the past, present and future.

May God in His mercy help people to wake up!

Look, lets get to the point, I hate the way Christians think they can spout there belief that if others in this world regardless of there own religion, don't believe in Jesus they will end up in a place called hell and be in pain for all eternity.

Please; this is just wrong on so many levels....


And lets cut even deeper hear, I did not ask to be born, no divinity has appeared to me, or sent me any indication that they exist, or outlined the way I should life my life, there are hundreds of religions, what makes yours sooo fucking special ????

I don't care about your god, I don't and will not believe in such retarded shit.

And whats this about no matter what good you do in life, it counts for naught in your gods eyes unless you are a believer in Christ.....

Like I care what god thinks, I don't believe god thinks full stop, come to think about there is no god, what is he doing if there is one, just taking score and throwing souls to hell, what kind of god is that??


Unless he show his ass and proves what you Christians have been bleating about to me personally and explains his lack of concern for the human race in totality, for all aspects he is no better than his so called demonic counterpart...


Its all bullshit anyway, I'm questioning myself as I write this. FFS

So, for go the long and tire sum reply and just answer me this;

A man is born on a island that has not been approached by Christianity, he leads a good life, kind to people, has a good marriage raises good children, does many good deeds in his life, then as nature would have it he dies, WHAT happens to his soul according to your just and loving god ??

If this is the kind of secular doctrine you take pride and happiness in promoting to the world, I think you need help, and I hope that when you die, there is just oblivion as I believe, cus if there is anything after and it does not match your faith, your in for a big shock.

The only thing that can help a man in his sinful condition, is that he believes and becomes a new creature. It is only Jesus who can do that. Man is evil by nature, and even if you may, for example, be able to stop "drink", you will still be bound by other sins (say demons), which you can't help but to do... I talk about that inherited sin-nature which makes us live a life contrary to God's will. In my family, it's only me who believes in Jesus. The other members have lots of problems, and I know very well that it's only Jesus who can set them free, who can deliver them. But once a person is saved, "everything becomes new".

So it's not about "religion", it's about TRUTH. I DID NOT become a Christian, because I suddenly went "religious". No... I have never been religious (except a little perhaps, but not more than any unbeliever is). It was also not until Jesus did take over my life that I even COULD believe, because I had lots of doubts. No person who has had a life-changing experience with Jesus Christ can say: "I just believe!" No, I KNOW, because I even feel the precious presence of the Holy Spirit inside me. So, what I have is the "inward witness", that I belong to Jesus Christ and is a child of God. (Faith do works even when feelings don't.)

An unsaved person have little or no interest in doing the will of God, because he just don't know God!

You did not ask to be born... Good, you seem to have admitted that you have a soul. If you didn't have a soul, you would be as non-living as a potplant, you would have as little consciousness as a robot. You also seem to admit that God made you, let you exist, because you didn't choose to. This tells us that God has created us for a purpose. The soul is eternal. Life without knowing God is death. You can live in the body, and break God's laws all you want, but once your soul is freed from your body, it's judgment time! Sin separates man from God. This is where Heaven and Hell comes in. God wants everyone to be saved, because that's why we were created, to co-exist with HIM. God is holy and righteous. No sin can enter Heaven. Heaven is a "wholy" holy place. This is why a person who has commited any sin, can not enter Heaven. God is also righteous, so He has to judge the lawbreakers. This is the reason why God sent Jesus Christ to the earth, God in human form to pay the penalty for our sins. Through Jesus death and ressurrection, we can be forgiven. When we believe that Jesus took the penalty for our sins, and humbly ask God for forgiveness for our wrongdoings, we will become new creatures. If we repent of our sins, that is!

We will receive the ticket to Heaven.

The "proof" of salvation is the Holy Spirit. Jesus promised to send us the Holy Spirit (Joh. 15-17), to live in us. When a person is cleansed by the shed Blood of Jesus Christ, He is SO cleansed and made so holy, that God's Holy Spirit can make His abode in the previous sinner. So, we will receive the Holy Spirit as a free gift from God.

For the Bible says... "For ye have not received the spirit of bondage again to fear; but ye have received the Spirit of adoption, whereby we cry, Abba, Father. The Spirit itself beareth witness with our spirit, that we are the children of God: And if children, then heirs; heirs of God, and joint-heirs with Christ" (Rom 8.)

By this we know that we have eternal life. Through the Holy Spirit we receive power to live the holy and righteous life which we ourselves could never do. When you receive the Holy Spirit your faith will become VERY strong.

God also lends us supernatural gifts of the Spirit (1Cor. 12), such as speaking in tongues, gift of prophecy, discerning of spirits, interpretation of tongues, word of wisdom and knowledge, gifts of healing, and so on. This happens when we become BAPTISED in the Holy Spirit, in a later time (which is an experience separated from the new birth experience).

If you see a website that hosts miracles captured on video you will find proof of this.

See these videos, miracles... http://freshfire.ca/sample_video.php

If I had seen this when I did not believe, I would definitely have believed.

There are thousands of belief-systems, but only one is true. JESUS IS THE WAY, THE TRUTH AND THE LIFE. It's all a matter of truth!

Of course you don't care about God, I DIDN'T care about God either... That's the first step, to confess to God that you are a sinner, and that you don't know God. Jesus came to set sinners FREE!

It is not God that is responsible for the evil on this earth. God made men with free will. So we can choose whether to believe or not, if we want to belong to God, or not. So the evil is all about people turning the back on God.

You speak about "God lacking concern for the human race in totality", which is not true. God "SO LOVED THE WORLD" that He gave His ONLY BEGOTTEN SON... So God definitely cares so much that He gave His LIFE in the Lord Jesus for every human being. The Bible says that God is LOVE. (Jesus is not dead but alive.)

The reason that God allows evil is our free will. If God would force us then He would contradict Himself. God encourages everyone to turn away from sins to Him. But again, He won't force anyone. If you want to contribute to a better world, then make your choice and turn to the Lord.

A simple, honest prayer is probably enough...

Rather than God sending people into Hell, which you may think, it's really about the individuals themselves who have chosen to live a life without God. Since they have not been redempted, they simply CANNOT enter into Heaven. God surely loves them, but He can't let them into Heaven, because it is impossible. The good thing with Heaven is, is that every person inside has the same will as God. That is total freedom!
God will seperate the sheep from the goats.

If you are honest and ask God in Jesus Name to show Himself real for you, and you have an open mind, He will surely show Himself real for you in a way so that you can believe. At least I pray it, because he did it for me!

About what you wrote:

"FOR ALL HAVE SINNED, AND COME SHORT OF THE GLORY OF GOD" (Rom 3:23)

Since all people have sinned, no one, not even one, who have not (or will not) be reconciled with God through the Lord Jesus Christ, can enter into the kingdom of Heaven.

God through the prophet makes it very clear that "all our righteousnesses are as filthy rags". There is thus no person who is good. "As it is written, There is none righteous, no, not one: There is none that understandeth, there is none that seeketh after God. They are all gone out of the way, they are together become unprofitable; there is none that doeth good, no, not one. Their throat is an open sepulchre; with their tongues they have used deceit; the poison of asps is under their lips: Whose mouth is full of cursing and bitterness: Their feet are swift to shed blood: Destruction and misery are in their ways: And the way of peace have they not known: There is no fear of God before their eyes." (Rom 3:10-18) All have sinned.

Not even John the Baptist, in all his holiness, was without sin. Of whom it was said by Jesus Himself: "Verily I say unto you, Among them that are born of women there hath not risen a greater than John the Baptist: notwithstanding he that is least in the kingdom of heaven is greater than he." (Matt 11:11)

The virgin Mary, also, expressed her need of salvation: "my spirit hath rejoiced in God my Saviour." (Luke 1:47)

Because of the sin, man has fallen. He is spiritually dead (Gen 2:17). Unless a person is thus born-again, he cannot enter into God's kingdom. (Joh 3:3,5)

The kingdom of Heaven is so holy and so pure, that no sin can enter. God is perfect and can not have fellowship with sin. It condradicts his very nature. Thus, sin is death (spiritual death). Sin separates man from God. If a person die in that condition, he will face eternal separation from God. (But no one has to go there! - "The word is nigh thee, even in thy mouth, and in thy heart" (Rom 10:8) "That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved." (10:9) "For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation." (10:10) "For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved." (Rom 10:13))

Since man was created to have fellowship with God, his soul was made eternal. Your and mine souls are eternal. It's only our whereabouts that's going to be decided here on earth; Heaven or Hell. I urge you to "choose life that you may live."

All people have different backgrounds. Some people find it more difficult to live a good life than others. Some people are born into criminal families. Some may have inborn disabilities, a tendency to aggressiveness and so on. But some people who are intelligent, eloquent and so on, find it easier to act 'nice' than others... God is not unfair in this respect. Not all people can become popular. But all people can believe in Jesus Christ and be saved.

People are constantly comparing themselves with other people, and this makes them think that they are better than others. But the truth is that they aren't any better! All people are sinners in God's eyes. All our 'good' works are as filthy rags, as previously noted.

I have here a test, where you can see how you match according to God's standards of holiness and righteousness, at least when it comes down to the Ten Commandments. http://www.livingwaters.com/good/001b.shtml

So God's standards is not our standards. "let God be true, but every man a liar; as it is written, That thou mightest be justified in thy sayings, and mightest overcome when thou art judged." (Rom 3:4) According to God's Law, we will all find that we have trespassed greatly against the commandments of God! "For whosoever shall keep the whole law, and yet offend in one point, he is guilty of all." (Jam 2:10)

In mathematics, only the right answer is "true". All other answers are false. If we want to pass the test, we have to give the correct answers. In the same way, it's only God's way which leads to Heaven! We find the moral absolutes in God's Law. "The man that doeth them shall live in them." (Gal 3:12) But if we live by God's Law, we will perish! This was the problem with the Old Covenent. It's almost impossible to follow God's Law. We can try, but we will fail. We try, but we sin and so on. Then we hopefully will cry out: "O wretched man that I am! who shall deliver me from the body of this death?" (Rom 7:24)

Jesus said about the adulteress that was caught in action: "He that is without sin among you, let him first cast a stone at her." (John 8:7)

How could they stone the adulteress when they themselves were sinners? It was only Jesus Christ who fullfilled God's Law. Therefore, all the glory belongs to God. We are sinners, and it's only by trusting in Jesus Christ - what He did for us - that we can hope of getting saved. Jesus saves from destruction.

God has paved the way to salvation.

So what about the one that has never heard the good news?

"For as many as have sinned without law shall also perish without law: and as many as have sinned in the law shall be judged by the law" (Rom 2:12)

Even if a person has never heard the gospel, or God's Commandments, he will still be judged, but without God's Law.

"For when the Gentiles, which have not the law, do by nature the things contained in the law, these, having not the law, are a law unto themselves:
Which shew the work of the law written in their hearts, their conscience also bearing witness, and their thoughts the mean while accusing or else excusing one another;" (Rom 2:14-15)

If a person lives in a remote place, and he has never heard the good news, and lives, and dies, then that person will still have no excuse if he didn't believe. He will be judged.

As the Bible clearly teaches, he could still understand what was right and wrong, through the God-given conscience, even though he didn't know the Word of God.
When we read the Bible, our conscience confirms what it says in our hearts, and we constantly think: "This is the truth."

"Because that which may be known of God is manifest in them; for God hath shewed it unto them.
For the invisible things of him from the creation of the world are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even his eternal power and Godhead; so that they are without excuse:" (Rom 1:19-20) (Hallelujah the Bible is so great.)

Through the creation, we can know that there is a Creator. Everything that exists has a cause. All people can understand that. (You don't need a Bible to understand that!) So, there's no excuse. A person that lives in a desolate place, can still be sober enough to understand, that it's the Creator that is to be worsipped, not the created things. They can understand that idols made by men, blacksmiths, etc. are not gods. They are just dead stones.

I have an example of this, of a tribesman, who understood that the idols that his tribe worshipped, could not have created the world. He soon began to worship the "invisible" God. After a time, God appeared to him in a vision (it was Jesus Christ), where he was told that white men would arrive in his tribe, and they would bring the message of salvation with them. Soon, when the white men arrived, he ran up to them and asked: "What is his name? What is his name!" His name is Jesus Christ - He is the same yesterday, today and forever! (Hebr 13:8)

Another example we find in the Scripture. The greeks were very "religious", and worshipped all kinds of idols or false gods. The apostle Paul walked about in Athens, and preached on a famous hill: "Ye men of Athens, I perceive that in all things ye are too superstitious. For as I passed by, and beheld your devotions, I found an altar with this inscription, TO THE UNKNOWN GOD. Whom therefore ye ignorantly worship, him declare I unto you. God that made the world and all things therein, seeing that he is Lord of heaven and earth, dwelleth not in temples made with hands; Neither is worshipped with men's hands, as though he needed any thing, seeing he giveth to all life, and breath, and all things; And hath made of one blood all nations of men for to dwell on all the face of the earth, and hath determined the times before appointed, and the bounds of their habitation; That they should seek the Lord, if haply they might feel after him, and find him, though he be not far from every one of us: For in him we live, and move, and have our being; as certain also of your own poets have said, For we are also his offspring. Forasmuch then as we are the offspring of God, we ought not to think that the Godhead is like unto gold, or silver, or stone, graven by art and man's device. And the times of this ignorance God winked at; but now commandeth all men every where to repent: Because he hath appointed a day, in the which he will judge the world in righteousness by that man whom he hath ordained; whereof he hath given assurance unto all men, in that he hath raised him from the dead." (Acts 17)

So, even people who have never heard the good news, CAN believe and worship the "unknown" God... But, it's only belief in Jesus as God's Son that saves.

"For the eyes of the LORD run to and fro throughout the whole earth, to shew himself strong in the behalf of them whose heart is perfect toward him." (2 Chron 16:9)

If there is such a starving person of the truth, God will not abandon him! The world is not that big, that God can not send a single servant, to such a place. God can also appear to the persons in visions, as has happened. When these truth-loving people hear the gospel, they will immediately conceive that this is the truth, and they will be the first to believe in the Lord Jesus Christ when the opportunity comes.
Jesus is the Way, the Truth and the Life. "Neither is there salvation in any other: for there is none other name under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved." (Acts 4:12)

Several muslims have had dreams about Jesus Christ (Isa). Today I read an article about a jew who lived in Jerusalem, who had dreamt the same dream several times. He dreamed about the rapture, in 1 Thessalonians... When he explained this for the Rabbis, they did not understand his dream. Finally, he asked a christian. That one opened the NT and read the passages. "That was my dream!" the jew said. He then prayed for salvation. Right on that street, he was saved and then received the Holy Spirit!

"And how shall they preach, except they be sent? as it is written, How beautiful are the feet of them that preach the gospel" (Rom 10:15)

Jesus exposed the religous leaders at his time, who was hypocrisers. They were leading the people astray. They though that they were righteous in their own eyes. They would face a more severe judgment, because they knew the will of God. But even the worst sinners can be forgiven. He told this:

"But what think ye? A certain man had two sons; and he came to the first, and said, Son, go work to day in my vineyard.
He answered and said, I will not: but afterward he repented, and went.
And he came to the second, and said likewise. And he answered and said, I go, sir: and went not.
Whether of them twain did the will of his father? They say unto him, The first. Jesus saith unto them, Verily I say unto you, That the publicans and the harlots go into the kingdom of God before you." (Matt 21)

"And that servant, which knew his lord's will, and prepared not himself, neither did according to his will, shall be beaten with many stripes. But he that knew not, and did commit things worthy of stripes, shall be beaten with few stripes. For unto whomsoever much is given, of him shall be much required: and to whom men have committed much, of him they will ask the more." (Luke 12:47-48)

The simile you wrote is hypothetical only, because I absolutely don't believe it's possible at all to live a religious virtuous life except by knowing God. Or at least His commandments or otherwise in some respect being influenced by christian values.

People who live in desolate places off-scoured from civilisation is often if not always very primitive in their culture.

The apostle Paul lived flawlessly according to the the Law of Moses, yet he persecuted the early Christian congregation (Church).
But because he had done it unknowingly, and in unbelief, God appeared to him in a vision on the road to Damascus and he was saved.

"And I thank Christ Jesus our Lord, who hath enabled me, for that he counted me faithful, putting me into the ministry; Who was before a blasphemer, and a persecutor, and injurious: but I obtained mercy, because I did it ignorantly in unbelief.

This is a faithful saying, and worthy of all acceptation, that Christ Jesus came into the world to save sinners; of whom I am chief." (1 Tim 1:12-13,15)

After his conversion, he was commissioned by God to become the apostle to the gentiles. Praise God. He was martyred by the roman emperor Nero. And now... he is in Heaven. He received the crown of salvation. His record is on high.

His writings make up about 40% of the New Testament.

"FOR TO ME TO LIVE IS CHRIST, AND TO DIE IS GAIN." (Ph 1:21)

Hallelujah! May God bless your soul.

Do you all really want quotes like "Makes KDE less Unholy" and the like posted all over this site, this is getting out of control.

It seems that the the religious nuts have found a new outlet for there problem.

I have no problem other peoples religion as long as its not in my face, this is not a religious site, and his Sig quotes we're all dammed to hell !! Really that's in my face as far as I'm concerned !

Basically, you want censorship on this site... This is absolutely ridiculous. If you don't like it, don't download it. It's simple enough. Life's too short...

Someone needs to get a few grams of tolerance into their system! We can have wallpapers of winter scenery, bikini clad women, Karl Marx, and penguins, but we can't have one with the Star of David?

If you don't like it, don't download it!

While I don't believe in his religion nor any other for that matter you should respect his beliefs. All he is doing is posting the wallpaper that he has created in case someone else might want to use it. Although he does need to change his screen shot to an actual screen shot of the wallpaper
