    Get to know you better

    I would like to have Dr Manhattan's power where I'm all powerful. Otherwise the ability to read minds? It would be cool to have a super power. What is your wish to CTF?

    When was the last time you....

    Alas it has been a few months since Christmas - I was kind of excited for Avengers Endgame. When was the last time you went on CTF.

    HI!

    Hi Emma Really sorry to hear about that but it's good that things seem better now. I'm happy to be in contact if you like.

    Harry Potter

    I read the books and saw the movies when they came out. At the time I was really excited but I haven't really gone back to them since then/recently.

    When was the last time you....

    I think quite a while, a few months ago maybe? I was at a friend's house. When was the last time you travelled by train?
  6. I'm a bit disturbed that you've seemingly posted this exact same message on multiple forums. But on the subject of judging itself, we need a clear definition of what this means in practice, and how we would apply this in specific real-world situations. For instance do we mean: a) Telling unbelievers that they need to repent of their sins and come to Christ b) Telling fellow believers that they can't act in a certain way, or need to repent of certain actions. c) Saying that certain people who claim to be of Christ that they are not real Christians. d) Something else - please specify I would say there is scope within scripture for all of the above, but any "judging" would need to be done with sincerity for the other person, or in the case of wolves in sheep's clothing, concern for people being misled. Furthermore it must not be hypocritical, because Christ will hold us to the same standards. To say there's a "blanket ban" on ever "judging" contradicts other Bible passages and can lead to some absurd situations in practice. You quoted James 2:13 but you're ignoring the context of the passage - from v1 - v7 he's addressing people who were showing favouritism to the rich over the poor (i.e. judging/looking down on poor people). That's entirely different to "judging" someone for their sin. If there's a blanket ban on judging how do we understand the following passages - Matthew 7:15-20 : "Watch out for false prophets. They come to you in sheep’s clothing, but inwardly they are ferocious wolves. 16 By their fruit you will recognize them. Do people pick grapes from thornbushes, or figs from thistles? 17 Likewise, every good tree bears good fruit, but a bad tree bears bad fruit. 18 A good tree cannot bear bad fruit, and a bad tree cannot bear good fruit. 19 Every tree that does not bear good fruit is cut down and thrown into the fire. 20 Thus, by their fruit you will recognize them." How do we tell the wolves from the sheep? By their fruits. But isn't this clearly "judging" people who claim to be sheep? And especially 1 Corinthians 5, where Paul tells a church to remove a man who was committing incest, and at the end says " 9 I wrote to you in my letter not to associate with sexually immoral people— 10 not at all meaning the people of this world who are immoral, or the greedy and swindlers, or idolaters. In that case you would have to leave this world. 11 But now I am writing to you that you must not associate with anyone who claims to be a brother or sister[c] but is sexually immoral or greedy, an idolater or slanderer, a drunkard or swindler. Do not even eat with such people. 12 What business is it of mine to judge those outside the church? Are you not to judge those inside? 13 God will judge those outside. “Expel the wicked person from among you.”

    Star Wars: The Bored Awakens

    Well done on being able to do sign language! I don't think I would have the patience or motivation to learn that.
  9. You probably already know about them but I would say The Ten Commandments (1956) and Ben Hur (1959).

    Comfortable going to heaven?

    It's hypothetical what would make us comfortable or uncomfortable in the Kingdom of God. But I think I'd be comfortable with it.

    ban the person above me

    Banned for having 23,831 posts.
  12. I don't celebrate or pay attention to Halloween. I don't think it's morally wrong though, it's just not something I have any interest in. What I object to is when people, especially kids, doorknock on strangers houses late at night and request candy/chocolate ("trick or treat"). If I had a child I would not allow them to do this.
