Yet, think how many "christians" boast that they aren't perfect; they are saved.

And ninety-nine times out of a hundred, the "christians" so boasting give no clue from their behavior that they know Yeshua's teachings at all.

I do understand your point?

I like to say, "there but for the grace of God go I". I do not believe there is a God who controls things, rewards or punishes us. But I believe how I react to life is the result of the experiences I have had, and I am grateful I have had mostly good experiences that make it easy for me to do the right thing most the time.

I believe in karma, that what goes around comes around. Expressing appreciation for our good future is not equal to bragging. But our good fortune is kind of like getting a "thanks", an indication that we are doing the right thing.

I could be wrong, but I'm guessing Imaginethat was joking, referring to the fact that Sab and Guy (his BFF) think that polls are bogus....becuzzz......Hillary lost.

I do think they are bullshit and bogus. They are as accurate as the man in the street. For instance, there is a video of the womans march circulating around.The guy is asking what are you protesting and what are you supporting.None of the people in the video had a clue or could answer anything beyond Trump bad for reasons they did not know. Now, would you call that accurate? Nope, just entertainment.

But, when a poll involves a story line with a point then the story line or point its trying to prove is worthy of discussion.
Thanks from caconservative and Sabcat

Gee, maybe it would be good if more people were educated about Jesus teachings, so they could call hypocrites out on the spot.
