    Go figure.
    Ummmm, you misspelled what you were trying to say here, didn't you?

    EDIT: Jeeez, never mind, I'm so tired right now that I apparently can't count.

    It is all the same.
    Christians, or people claiming to be Christians?

    Because that's not how Christians roll. If they do, then obviously, they're not Christians.

    Remember Frank Zappa?

    He said, "Is that a real Mexican poncho, or is that a Sears poncho?"

    A shocking number of Christians today are "Sears Christians".

    Based on their behaviour and what they say, who do you think are genuine and not genuine Christians here in this community?

    Why are you poking your nose in to try and fend off a perfectly reasonable question about the community in which we operate? It's her who has said some judgemental words about fellow Christians. Probing her to see if she can walk the walk rather than just talk the talk on this matter is hardly asking her "to play God".

    Her comment was made about Christians in general I doubt she was referring to specific 'people' on this site.

    That's why I asked her what I asked her.

    Christians who do take that literally would obviously not have read the new testament and understand what the new covenant is about. They would also be ignoring the blatant instruction to love your enemy and love your neighbor as you love yourself.

    They would probably say the same of you.
