Do most christians really believe in wizards?
I’m not sure why this question is directed at Christians rather than New Age types. After all, Christians don’t approve of these people (genuine or not)—non-Christians seem to have no quarrel with them.
It’s referring to christians because it’s in their bible.
That isn’t really an answer, is it?
Why not? We can’t ask christians if they believe a particular part of the bible? I don’t have a problem per se, just asking a simple question.
You say you’re “asking a simple question”. But you aren’t, are you
It is not acceptable to attack people for their beliefs, when we find those beliefs perfectly acceptable in other groups.
Asking a question is attacking? Come on. You can’t be serious.
Be serious. You were trying it on, and you’re trying it on now. We all know about sneery little diatribes phrased as ‘questions.’
Besides, why is it not acceptable to criticize beliefs? The bible even does that.
You attribute to me a view I do not hold.
Is it possible to criticise a belief in one person which we find acceptable in other people without being a hypocrite?
I’m not following your questioning. I’m not criticizing a particular belief held by one person and accepting the same belief as held by another.
But you are. You’re objecting to this belief as held by Christians, but haven’t a word to say against New Age belief, to whom it is considerably more important. It seems to me that you need to make it clear that you quarrel with them even more than Christians, to avoid this problem, surely?
As you no doubt perceive, once you do this, your point sort of becomes meaningless as an anti-Christian gesture.
You type a lot and convey little. If you are interested in this thread than perhaps you can address the subject at hand which is belief in wizards.
If your argument is flawed, surely you need to deal with the flaws?
This is how you defend christianity, by insulting new age belief? Pathetic.
In what way did I insult new age beliefs?
If new agers believe in wizards as christians do then i think they’re both bonkers. I don’t accept either belief. They are both ridiculous. I’m just not that familiar with new age beliefs so i’m not referring to them; so stop bringing them up as they have nothing to do with this thread. Your argument is meaningless.
Glad that you accept that New Age ideas are “bonkers”—although why you insult New Age belief, given your accusation earlier I do not see.
But in that case, why do you single out Christians for your accusation?
All the best,
