There's a difference, just like I'm sure there are differences between varying styles of upbringing and nuances in ideology in Judaism and where/how you grew up within Islam.

I'm not sure what you identify as, but no faith has a cookie cutter mold. Different flavors and all that, good and bad.

No, it's definitely excitement.

most of the average, ordinary, run-of-the-mill christians i've ever had the pleasure to speak with believe that all good people, regardless of faith, will go to heaven.

on the contrary, the majority of christians i've ever met that insist that you must accept christ as your savior to be allowed into the heavenly kingdom have been of the born-again variety. these are the same christians that usually quote bible versus in everyday conversation, associate almost exclusively with other born-again christians, and try to convert everyone else they know to, as you may have already guessed by now, christianity.

whereas one type of christian tends to be more private about their faith, the other tend to be more zealous. at least, such has been the case in my own experiences and interpretation of the differences between.

Watch it. This isn't a thread to argue about religion in.

Seriously people.

If you want to discuss what religion the Red Wings are fine. But that's it. Once people start talking about their personal views, the thread will inevitably go downhill. It was foretold in Revalations wink.gif

The demon code prevents me from declining a rock-off challenge.

Agreed. Like BetterREDthandead said, this is a short leash thread. Keep it to discussion of Red Wings' religion exclusively, or the thread will disappear.

Yep, I agree with you. I'm like the first type you described - I believe all good people go to heaven, regardless of their faith.

I was born and raised in the faith I practice, but I respect others for their beliefs and would never think of telling someone they are condemned to hell because they don't believe in God the way I do.

But, to get this back on-topic, I remember when Shanny was here, he was often seen crossing himself at the end of the National Anthem. Some reporter asked him why he did that and he said he recites the Our Father and then adds a little request to his father at the end "Dad, help me do my best tonight." (for those who don't know, Shanny's father, Donal, died when Shanny was 21 of Alzheimer's Disease and never saw his son play in the NHL)

then please refrain from the "I like to know which players are which so I'll know who I'll see in heaven and I know who to pray for" comments, because as a non-christian i find those comments way too tempting to not comment on.

No joke and I'll pray the same thing again tonight biggrin.gif I prayed so hard durring the WCF, and when we lost I was...I hate to say this, I was so pissed at God. In the Bible Matthew 21:22 says "If you believe, you will receive whatever you ask for in prayer." Umm I didn't recive. But then I also know that whatever God does He does for a reason so yeah.


Don't be pissed at god. He just likes Gary Bettman better than you. tongue.gif

GUYS IT WORKED AGAIN!!!! Last night I was watching the game *duh* and I know how we usually score only 3 goals. I figured with all the central teams stepping up that that wasn't going to be enough to win games anymore. So, after Homer scored I said "Lord, please let the Wings score at least 2 more goals" AND THEY DID! I was also praying that Hank could continue his point streak. And then what happens? A beautigul goal at 1:28. F yeah baby!

Why is our team so freakishly amazing? biggrin.gif Seriously why are they so sick?!?!?! sly.gif

Oh, I saw Datsyuk cross himself last game right before the 3rd period it was so cute.
It was so funny when they were talking to Larry Murphy between the benches and Cheli comes up and waves right in his face. And Muphy's like "Thanks Cheli" Oh Lord, Cheli's so sick!

As in most professional sports the players are all bible-huggers when they win.

Ever here a professional athlete after the game say: "Yeah everything was FINE untill JESUS mad me fumble the ball on the 2 yd line with 45 seconds to go..................."?

I guess what I'm saying is - why does anyone care if an NHL player is a Christian or not? Fair retort no?

There are people who don't care, I'm sure. For me, it's just a curiosity...like I said before it is another thing to maybe have in common with the players, like driving the same car or liking the same music. Whether they practice the religion I do or none at all doesn't change my opinion of the players.

So, lemme guess. You didn't pray at all during the Hawks game tonight? Because obviously, if you did, we would've won, right?

No, I did, sad.gif but God didn't want them to win for some reason. sad.gif I don't think they played to hot last night. The puck was bouncing all over the place, it didn't look like they were paying attention, and the seemed to be dumping the puck more than usual. If we win the rest of the November games and the 1st two in December, then we'll break the record. smile.gif
