Recently I saw a life-sized manger scene which was facing the church, thus those passing by got the backs of Joseph, Mary and Jesus. Need more be said?

How bad can it get?

How about this:

"I only thought about kissing a girl.
I liked it.
Then I went to Hell, to be told, "Hang in there, kid, it only lasts forever."

Socrates taught Plato.  Plato taught Aristotle.  Aristotle tutored the son of Philip of Macedon.  This boy grew up to become Alexander the Great, largely by slaughtering a lot of people.  That's philosophy.

Jesus spoke the Truth.  He blessed the poor.  He healed the sick.  He even raised the dead.  He died on a cross for us, lived again, and came back long enough to tell us to love one another.  That's religion.

They say Adam is "The Federal Head" of the entire race.  Just as righteousness is imputed to those believing, so Adam's sin is imputed to those who do not believe, even if it is by ignorance.  But more, it is inherent.  We now are born with a "sin nature."  Because we were all constituted in him, when he sinned we all became liable for the penalty due Adam's sin.  There's no reparation and no negotiation possible.  They believe the wages of sin is ETERNAL death, meaning ceaseless torture for ever.  Just to be born human means you deserve to go to hell for ever.  Being in Adam, by nature we are "children of wrath."  And this idea is supposed to be an example of Divine wisdom?  They're bound by something that makes it impossible for them to think about this.

They have turned the manger scene around. Interesting.

The manger scene turned around? 2 possibilities I can think of:
1.) They want to enjoy the traditional manger scene but don't want complaints
of non-believers that are "offended" (Weird that we are silenced when we say non-believers sin offends us)
2.) They believe the manger scene is only for those that believe anyway (especially their particular church) :laughing7:

Is that tears from laughing too hard or tears because it's hilarious but also sad at the same time?

We are called to love the sick.  Those who have been abused with hellfire doctrine are in essence victims of that doctrine.  I understand it's human nature to lash out against those who would do us harm with labels ie heretic.  I also understand it's natural to lash out in anger against those we perceive as abusers.  With that said, we are to be defined by the love of our Savior which is not haughty or condescending.
