    What about the old saying, "Karma's a b!tch", "Well that's Karma for you" etc -- would people have to know all about Hinduism to 'understand' that??

    no.



    I like your point about some confirmed Atheists understanding teh bible though -- I'm pretty sure I know many Atheists who know more about it and it's origins than self proclaimed Christains.
    On the asylum seeker issue (to choose the least controversial ), Christianity teaches hospitality and compassion for those less fortunate, regardless of race or creed (ie. The Good Samaritan story). That philosophy underpins our whole welfare structure. Of course you can believe that without being religious, (though Jews and Muslims have a similar philosophy from a different source) but I often wish Mr Abbot, as a Christian, would remember that when he discusses policy in this area.

    Ok i really need to go, have a little girl who needs my attention and have said all i need to say.

    Now considering Romans 13:1-5 you are obliged to follow the law of the land, and then further James 2:10 to break one law means you might as well break all laws.

    It is law in Australia that all people over the age of 18 are to enroll to vote unless exempt for various reasons.

    You don't get to pick and chose when to obey the law

    This is a prime example of 'self proclaimed christians' (ie Abbot) not taking his lesson from the bible then?


    I totally agree with you - you do NOT need to be religious nor have knowledge of the bible to be accepting of assylum seekers.

    The culture war between [some] modern day christians and muslims is actually a fine example of your theory not being productive.


    Luke 19 27 - could be translated/taken in different ways too - I suppose..depending on 'who' reads it.

    I suppose it depends on what the scripture preacher is teaching in their class -- it's all relevant.

    Actually no....i do obey the laws of the land except if they break Gods laws " pay caesars things to caesar but Gods things to God" My allegiance is to Gods kingdom (government) not human government as they will never bring true justice and peace, so i remain neutral and its perfectly lawful for me to do so on religious grounds. I usually quote a scripture to back it up and i dont get fined Jesus did the same and its his example we are to follow.
