    No, I do not think those who pray to god are idol worshipers, unless you are re-writing the 10 Commandments. An idol is a physical thing.
    Ease up with the names, bitch. I was speculating.

    It happens that Gnostic Christians have always been close in theology.

    Bill Moyers Journal . Watch & Listen | PBS

    Rabbi Hillel, the older contemporary of Jesus, said that when asked to sum up the whole of Jewish teaching, while he stood on one leg, said, "The Golden Rule. That which is hateful to you, do not do to your neighbor. That is the Torah. And everything else is only commentary. Now, go and study it."

    Please listen as to what is said about literal reading.

    "Origen, the great second or third century Greek commentator on the Bible said that it is absolutely impossible to take these texts literally. You simply cannot do so. And he said, "God has put these sort of conundrums and paradoxes in so that we are forced to seek a deeper meaning."



    If Jews do not idolize their God then what word would you use to describe God if not their idol?

    By rights to idolise someone means to make a graven image of them & to worship the image - in the same way as Christians focus on the crucifix, with or without the image of Jesus hanging from it. Also, as I understand it, the only religion to specifically prohibit all forms of secular imagry is Amish. They, at least, are consistent with their belief & are of no problem to anyone else.

    I don't think calling someone a bitch is appropriate, tasteful or gentlemanly. Kindly refrain from abusive language, for I generally find that those that confuse eloquence and vulgarity have no class. That was definitely a vulgar insult, and breaks site rules.

    I think an apology to AnneBoleyn is in order, GCB.

    Not to split hairs but you add a lot to Webster.

    Full Definition of IDOLIZE

    transitive verb


    : to worship as a god; broadly : to love or admire to excess <the common people whom he so idolized Times Literary Supplement>

    Nothing there about what you said.

    All who pray to a God are idolizing him, her or it.

    Reciprocity is fair play.

    "Ease up with the names, bitch. I was speculating."

    I've had enough of you. Now you can add sexist to your lack-luster resume.

    Speculating about Jews and their practices have never led to a happy road for my people. Continue in your ignorance & speculations.

    Re: Christian and Muslim. Inequality OUT. World piece IN.

    As far as I can see the word bitch is correct when referring to a female dog. When 'bitch' is used to address a female human being, then it becomes derogatory and rather insulting.

    Not sure what Gnostic Christian Bishop was referring to over 'Ease up with the names' - what names ? I thought AB was being perfectly polite, which quite frankly is more than you deserve when you call her a 'bitch'.

    I'm surprised you have not been reported yet, for using insulting words to another member ! Maybe that could still happen.

    With regard to the title of this thread. What's with the 'World piece IN' bit - which piece were you referring to ?

    Battling dictionaries.

    I like how this idol worshiper defines God and idol worshiping.
