    your hypocrisy lies in attempting to get some moral leverage from a musician whose music you collected and apparently listened to and which you are on public record as having described as being 'prolific'.

    There is nothing whatsoever hypocritical in what he is saying.

    You started a thread in the spirituality forum without thinking it through. Your organisation talked about "brother Prince" in a similar misconceived way, and you just picked it up and regurgitated it without a second thought. If you thought for yourself about your religious beliefs instead of simply regurgitating what you were told by your overlords you would not end up with your metaphorical underwear at your ankles on the internet so often.

    But I am not a Christian, robbie. While you are. And I am not celebrating the fact that Prince was a Christian. While you are.

    When you were asked if his work would have been appropriate and acceptable in the eyes of his "elders" and his "brothers" at his Jehovah's Witness Kingdom Hall ~ you characterized this question as narrow minded moralizing.

    You sought to defend him in this clumsily personalized way, bizarrely, on a thread where the very topic was his Christian principles ~ and by extension yours.

    Can you provide me a list with the defining traits of real Christians, please?

    an "us and them" from Christians regarding Jews and the
    Scriptural history and teachings?

    Generally speaking, in these forums, "real Christians" define other "real christians" as being those who never publicaly detract from their particular form of the Christian religion no matter what is being said. It all very interesting and amusing to see these partisan cliques forming and reforming depending on who is in the out-group. Often I am in the out group and come under considerable flack from those in the in-group (including Lemon Lime) for not toeing the party line.

    The JW hierarchy exercise strict control over their flock and what jobs they are allowed do.

    As a result most of the poor benighted devils end up becoming window cleaners.

    Please be quiet, your ignorance resounds out into the universe like a clashing symbol and is spoiling the ambience of this place.

    I can't help you with that. Jesus said you will know them by their fruit, but he wasn't speaking to people who didn't believe him.

    And besides all these things, a great chasm has been fixed between us and you people, so that those wanting to go over from here to you people cannot, neither may people cross over from there to us. Luke 16:26

    This was given in the symbolic Rich man and Lazarus parable, the Rich man representing the religious leaders of Christ's time and Lazarus the Christians.
