Buttuh, isn't forgiveness what "Christians" are supposed to do?
Who says we are Christian? That's crap IMO.
A LOT of people "CLAIM" to be good christians, that is exactly my point. In fact a lot of people HERE claim Jesus or Allah or Budda or whatever. It is one of the tenents of the organized religions, many talk a good game but don't actually DO it. They claim to believe in the bible, which preaches FORGIVENESS, and at the same time, hollar like a beat wet dog when someone points out the hyprocisy of their actions. And who appointed YOU as WE??
So a person NEVER has a soul change?
YES, people DO change. I could name someone I know right now who has changed, but that's not my point either. When you say ALWAYS or NEVER, it is automatically FALSE!
A person who has had an evil past can't be "saved"?
No. Not for some things. If he was a gambler and blew all his money, or if he stole money becaue he needed drugs ets.. all these sorts or 'character flaws' can be resolved through Rehab.
On this I concur, Not for SOME things, they cannot, but for SOME things, they CAN.
But losing control such that you rape or beat a woman (or anyone) to death? Noo - now where would you find a 'Murder's Anonymous' group or a 'Rapist Anonymous group'?
If you saw the article, it did not say he raped the woman when he was 19. He was convicted of murder. She was in all likelihood, not wrapped too tight either.
Then that means there are a lot of throw away people.
Yes, there are. They need to be send off on some island all by themselves so they can kill each other off - not be around decent folk - so they devastate more lives.
This I can also concur to, some folks needs killing, BUT not ALL of them.
Another way to look at this is: she being with him may have prevented him from raping and killing a lot MORE women.
No way. This is wishful thinking at best. Do your research about the rate of repeat sexual offenders and men that 'lose control'. This stuff can't be fixed.
You presume to know me personally. You don't. As a matter of fact, I HAVE done my research, and I worked with teens who were offenders, some of them sexual offenders. There are a FEW who if caught EARLY enough, can be rehabilitated. Not all but some. And I will stand by my statement, the crazy built up over time. You don't know her either.
But I won't say she's stupid, she just fell for the wrong guy, and made the mistake of not doing her full research. I would have had his past as the topic of conversation for a LONG time, and the minute he got screw-eyed at me, I woulda bounced. She didn't know he was a rapist.
Okay, then I will say it. She was stupid. She said within the first 5 minutes of meeting him - he said he was out of the pen for murder. Newsflash - murder is WORSE that rape. DUH! Stupid. So she knew what she was getting into.
Uh Becky, no one has EVER told you a lie you believed? NEVER??? Well, I don't believe you.
But on that note, NO, I am not that one. There would have been no second date. But I am not a "good Christian, sooo . . .
