"Up Yours"

I am not sure of their diabolical motivation for saying it, but I think it has to do with:

First Samuel 15:24 And Saul said to Samuel, "I have sinned; for I have transgressed the commandment of the LORD and your words, because I feared the people and obeyed their voice.
Proverbs 29:25 The fear of man lays a snare, but he who trusts in the LORD is safe.
Ecclesiastes 12:13 The end of the matter; all has been heard. Fear God, and keep His commandments; for this is the whole duty of man.
John 12:43 for they loved the praise of men more than the praise of God.
Colossians 3:22 Slaves, obey in everything those who are your earthly masters, not with eyeservice, as men-pleasers, but in singleness of heart, fearing the Lord.

To what am I referring?

You have probably heard a number of people declare something like:

"I forgive him for the heinous crime he did against me [or one of my family members]....even though there was no remorse and absolutely no indication he was ever sorry or repented, though displaying some regret for being caught." "Why I insanely irrationalize uttering that cowardly and absurd, injust statement is because:"

Matthew 5:39 But I say to you, Do not resist one who is evil. But if any one strikes you on the right cheek, turn to him the other also (then let him throw acid in your face, ignite firecrackers in your ears, toss gasoline and a match on you, and then urinate on the charred remains)

Matthew 5:44 But I say to you, Love your enemies and pray for those who persecute you (and pray real hard, then empty your wallet and bank account into theirs),
Matthew 5:45 so that you may be sons of your Father who is in heaven; for He makes His sun rise on the evil and on the good, and sends rain on the just and on the injust (without illegal or unlawful biased discrimination).

Luke 6:27 But I say to you that hear, Love your enemies, do good to those who hate you (as much as you can in your previously-charred remains).
Luke 6:35 But love your enemies, and do good, and lend (them bullets and the gun to assassinate you with), expecting nothing in return; and your (posthumous) reward will be great, and you will be (pathetically-deceased) sons of the Most High; for He is kind to the ungrateful and the selfish (which is why Christianity practically ceased functioning about the time of the competitive-against-Christianity ungrateful and selfish prophet Mohammed).

Matthew 7:1 Judge not, that you be not judged (so kick the guy in a black robe out of the courtroom).
Luke 6:37 Judge not, and you will not be judged; condemn not, and you will not be condemned; forgive, and you will be forgiven

Matthew 6:15 but if you do not forgive men their (murderous-genocidal rampage) trespasses, neither will your Father forgive your trespasses (so tell the cops to back off from using the stun gun or the Glock sidearm).

Matthew 7:3 Why do you see the speck that is in your brother's eye, but do not notice the log that is in your own eye?

Matthew 15:3 He answered them, "And why do you transgress the commandment of God for the sake of your tradition?

Luke 6:41 Why do you see the speck that is in your brother's eye, but do not notice the log that is in your own eye?

Luke 23:34 And Jesus said, "Father, forgive them; for they know not what they do (so that they crucify the rest of My crew as soon as possible)."

John 8:15 You judge according to the flesh, I judge no one.

Acts 15:10 Now therefore why do you make trial of God by putting a yoke upon the neck of the disciples which neither our fathers nor we have been able to bear?

Romans 14:10a Why do you pass judgment on your brother? Or you, why do you despise your brother?

First Corinthians 4:5 Therefore do not pronounce judgment before the time, before the Lord comes, who will bring to light the things now hidden in darkness and will disclose the purposes of the heart. Then every man will receive his commendation from God.

Ephesians 4:32 and be kind to one another, tenderhearted, forgiving one another (for blowing up two NYC Trade Towers with passenger-laden jetliners), as God in Christ forgave you.

Colossians 3:13 forbearing one another and, if one has a complaint against another, forgiving each other; as the Lord has forgiven you, so you also must forgive (as God will do to the damned goats on His left on Judgment Day).

James 2:13 For judgment is without mercy to one who has shown no mercy; yet mercy triumphs over judgment.

Basing one's satanically one-sided theology on that alone, let us see how bonafide rancid potty-stools make God out to both hideously contradict Himself and apparently be one huge and hypocritical hideously-ridiculous turd-in-the-toilet fool:

(1) The laud screwed itself by not forgiving the whole wicked world but instead destroying them in Noah's Global Flood.
(2) The laud screwed itself by closing the Red Sea and drowning the Egyptians He should instead have forgiven.
(3) The laud screwed itself by opening up the ground to engulf Korah and the Rebels instead of forgiving them.
(4) The laud screwed itself by telling Joshua to annihilate tons of Canaanites instead of forgiving them.
(5) The laud screwed itself by granting Samson's request to bring down the house on Philistines instead of forgiving them.
(6) The laud screwed itself by having His angel slaughter 144,000 Assyrian soldiers in one night instead of forgiving them.
(7) The laud screwed itself by letting David stone and cut off Goliath's head instead of forgiving Goliath.
(8) The laud screwed itself by letting Samuel hew King Agag in piitselfeces before the LORD instead of forgiving Agag.
(9) The laud screwed itself by sending fire down on two 50-soldier squads of soldiers for Elijah instead of forgiving them.
(10) The laud screwed itself by letting Elijah kill the prophets of Baal and get away with it, instead of forgiving them.
(11) The laud screwed itself by having Jeremiah prophesy about Hananiah getting executed instead of him forgiving Hananiah.
(12) The laud screwed itself by having Peter tell Ananias and Sapphira they would drop dead instead of forgiving them.
(13) The laud screwed itself by having his angel strike down Herod and eaten by worms instead of forgiving Herod.
(14) The laud screwed itself by promising to burn Satan in Hell forever instead of forgiving him.
(15) The laud screwed itself by allowing Hitler to poison and shoot himself instead of forgiving Hitler.
(16) The laud screwed itself by allowing the Allies to defend themselves after Pearl Harbor instead of forgiving the Japs.
(17) The laud screwed itself by allow feds to lethally inject genocidal bomber Timmy McVeigh instead of forgiving Timmy.
(18) The laud screwed itself by allowing the George W. Bush International Coalition to hang Saddam instead of forgiving Saddam.

Of course, all the above is - again - proven (according to playing-God self-righteous pacifist wimps) by the following:

Matthew 5:44 But I say to you, Love your enemies and pray for those who persecute you,
Matthew 5:45 so that you may be sons of your Father who is in heaven; for he makes his sun rise on the evil and on the good, and sends rain on the just and on the injust.

Luke 6:27 But I say to you that hear, Love your enemies, do good to those who hate you

Colossians 3:13 forbearing one another and, if one has a complaint against another, forgiving each other; as the Lord has forgiven you, so you also must forgive.

Hate the sin, but love the sinner? But of course:

Psalm 86:5 For You, Lord, are good and forgiving, abounding in steadfast love to all who call on You (so babble away, keep sinning, and then babble even more, and more, and more).
Psalm 99:8 Oh LORD our God, You did answer them; You were a forgiving God to them, but an avenger of their wrongdoings (and may all nasty wrongdoings be tormented in outer-darkness hellfire forever, while noxiously-overeucharisted born-again misdeeds frolic in the freedom of sinning all they want later on for a little variety and fun forever in Heaven).

....all except bigoted and cruel, harshly-intolerant, religious-right-nutcase, fundamentalist-Hebrew-whackjob Jews:

Is it hopeless? Of course it is(?):

Second Chronicles 24:20 Then the Spirit of God took possession of Zechariah the son of Jehoiada the priest; and he stood above the people, and said to them, "Thus says God, 'Why do you transgress the commandments of the LORD, so that you cannot prosper?
