Which is not what I am asserting. The Judeo-Christian worldview is based on the individuals relationship with God and the community of believers and the world (or the non-believer). While many of the teachings of both Judaism and Christianity very clearly relate to the community it is always on the basis of the individuals relationship with the community. You cannot have a community of human beings without first acknowledging the individuals who make up that community.Anybody who claims that either Judaism or Chritianity is based on individualism is talking out of complete idelogical ignorance.
If by TNT you mean “The New Testament” that would be false. For example the commandment, “Thou shall not murder,” while it does express a community standard, it is directed at the individual, not the community as a whole. Only an individual can refrain from committing murder.And do me a favor, don't try tossing out an out-of-context verse or part of a verse to further prove your ideology.
And I've stated already, the only time TNT wants individualism is in prayer.
Not even Steve is using “God’s words” to justify the desires of his id. The problem is that he attempts to use “God’s word” to justify his neo-Marxist Progressive ideology. Again, do a little research into liberation theology or Black liberation theology. Its basically Marxism in Christian drag. One of the more absurd claims of neo-Marxists is that Jesus was the first communist and that he sought to establish a communist social order long before the necessary social conditions were set (necessary if you buy into the Marxist theories of the progress of history).I would much rather prefer an honest Libertarian (a few in my community) or self-serving, greedy narcissist Republican (many in my community), or a lazy arsed Liberal (a few in my community), than a psuedo-intellectual who uses God's word to man to justify the desires of his/her id.
:rolleyes: Your disgust is misplaced.I not only find it disrespectful, I find it disgusting.
