Theology Forum Point Tally

Post by UncleBob » Thu Sep 01, 2011 11:35 am

It just occurred to me that one reason the Theology Forum continues to produce endless Catholic vs Protestant posts may be because there is no thread for the participants to keep score. Now there is. Feel free to keep score here.

Enjoy!

That's one!
A man and woman were on their honeymoon after a long and very happy courtship. On their honeymoon, they decide to go for a horse ride through the beautiful mountain passes of Europe. As the horses were crossing a small stream, the wifes's horse mis-steps and jostles the her. Once across the stream, the man dismounts, walks over to the horse, and stares into its eyes. Finally, he states, "That's one." The man remounts his horse and they continue their ride.

A bit further down the path, the wife's horse stumbles when stepping over a fallen tree. The man dismounts, stares the horse in the eyes, and boldly states, "That's two!" He returns to his saddle and they move on.

As the afternoon sun began to set, the wife's horse once again lost its footing on a mossy slope. The man dismounts, moves to the wife's horse, and helps his wife out of the saddle. Moving to the front of the horse he stares it in the eyes and firmly says, "That's three," removes a pistol from his jacket, and shoots the horse dead.

The wife, quite upset at seeing the beautiful horse killed, says to her husband, "That's terrible, why would you do such a thing!"

The man stares at his wife and firmly says, "That's one!"

Here's what I'm thinking. I will be watching the TF and when I witness a "Kill", I will award the winner a special image of a Taco. The "winner" will then be free to use it as a avatar or collect multiple Tacos and display in their signature. Who will be the first CPS Theology Ace? Will there be more Catholic aces? Would Mary be an ace? YOU decide!

It was a test of the concept. The real Taco will be a special image prepared for the um.. winner.

Oh for Pete's sake Will. Must you split every hair you see? In both Exodus and Dueteronomy, we're instructed not to covet anything that belongs to our neighbor. Unless you think that literally means only the four guys who live directly next to and in front and back of your house it can be said that everyone is your neighbor. Also consider the second greatest commandment from Jesus - Mark 12:31 "Love your neighbor as yourself. Again, it's a broader definition than simply those folks in the 'hood.

cov·et
Verb: Yearn to possess or have (something)

So - for the sake of brevity - can we not contract "You shall not covet your neighbor’s wife. You shall not set your desire on your neighbor’s house or land, his male or female servant, his ox or donkey, or anything that belongs to your neighbor.” to "Don't covet that which belongs to your neighbor"? And since "neighbor" means everyone but yourself, we can further shorten it to "Don't covet what doesn't belong to you."? And since - by definition - we can't covet what we already have/own, can we not simply say "Don't covet."?
It's not hair splitting. And, even if it was, you're looking at the wrong hair.
Now I understand why you shave yer head. If you had hairs, you'd spend all day splitting them. :D
That's a Kill
