  • yes it is pushing your beliefs on ppl when it is unsolicited is reason enough to get your ass kicked. since you seem to find this ok, answer this Why, in spite of the no-soliciting sign that I have posted on my front door, do the witlesses and morons still knock on my door at 7AM on a Sunday? Do they think it is ok because they are selling religion
  • Yes, it is rude to presume to know these things. Seems like common sense to me, have you thought about getting help with your social issues?
  • ... People like you give me migraines. -.-;
  • What I see here is, judgement. I'm sorry to say, I think you were out of line. Who are you to find fault in others much less decide their eternal destination? How could you possibly be of help to her when you are looking down? Gentleness, and kindness, and empathy for each other is what we need and what will be of assistance in the journey we all face. MHO is, you owe her an apology. WWJT, if you pushed someone further away rather than helping them up?
  • Yes, it is rude. You are not God, and therefore have no right to determine if a person is going to Heaven or Hell. I would not be thanking you either.
  • I would have socked you in the mouth. You don't have a clue who is going where, neither are you in any position to pass judgement on anybody else. Keep your threats to yourself.
  • Nick, let's look at her perspective here. You obviously think you're doing her a favor and helping her. But, what makes you think she understands that? She's not a believer. Remember when I used to bombard you, so to speak. You totally thought I was rude and was saying these mean things to you, even though it was the truth. I need to work on my approach as we all do. Although that may be the reality of her future as of now, you need to know how to approach that. If you just say she's going to Hell, obviously she'll get pissed. You need to tell her first where she stands, that she is a sinner. God despises sin and pours his wrath out on those who continue in it because He is a holy God. This leads to eternal separation from God in Hell. You need to learn how to lead up to it. It's difficult to understand the person's point of view but that's crucial. How does she know she should be thanking you? She probably thinks she is a really great person and feels you're being offensive. Understand where she's coming from then she'll understand yours.
  • You were very wrong to tell her or anyone they are going to hell if they don't repent. You do not have that right to do so. You should instead teach or tell her about God's love for her and how Jesus died for her sins as well as your own. You need to read Matt. 22: 37-40 and learn to love not make people uneasy around you. What were you referring to when you told her this? What ever it was it is her business not yours...and she should tell you to get lost and she should never thank you for that! You are being an errogant idiot. Grow up and be a real Christian not a clanging symbol!
  • yes that is rude. are you that stupid? who are u to judge?
  • It's not rude but something very different. Assualt is making intended violence evident. Assualt and battery is actually carrying out that intent. Telling someone that they are going to be punished and hurt for eternity, in whatever method you think Hell is, is assault to me. Tho' I'm not a cop or judge, just my opinion.
  • it's not right to tell her even if you want to save her ,if she is your friend and you want to direct her just try to tell her that what she do is not right and tell her what should she do and it's all up for her it's not good to tell her you're going to hell it's a really hard word plus you shouldn't tell anyone that exept they ask if not so no cuz it's unacceptable for people to detrimine thier eternal life .;D
  • You should be thanking her for not kicking your *ss.
  • LOL I wouldn't be offended that YOUR saying I'm going to hell; I'd be offended that your preaching. Not everyone believes at the same level. I'm religious, but trust me on this eitheir hang out w people of your mindset or don't bring it up. In a few years she won't even remember you for more than that weird Christian who kept telling kids they were going to hell, if your interested in her...that ain't the way to go about it. POINTS for you to get ya outta the neg. I think people came too hard on ya for being the righteous Christian you appear to be through your question. However, I found it funny...
  • In theory, yes she should be thanking your. She should fall down on her knees and you should both give thanks to the Lord Jesus Christ for helping her see her sins and repent of them then and there, while your classmates step over you on their way to their other classes. . In the real world, however that would be obnoxious. In the real world people don't much appreciate someone coming up to them to tell them how they suck, that they're doomed, that they have to give up things they like or suffer eternally. . Let's face it: you're not a fun guy. . It is of course possible that you are doing this out of the goodness of your heart and a sincere wish that she can attain heaven. . But I doubt it. You knew she wasn't ready to hear what you were going to say before you even started, she's in school in a public place and you want to discuss her sins with her? Also, I'm having a hard time believing this is the first time you've broached this subject with her seeing as how you know so much about both her sex life and her church attendance. . Regardless, you've delivered your message. She didn't like it. On the one hand, Jesus said there'd be days like these. In fact I think he said that these was the only kind of days there would be. . If you're going to preach the gospel - which seems to interest you more than art class or giving your fiance a tumble - you're going to have to learn to do a better job of it. If the messenger makes himself despised he won't be able to deliver the message.
  • Just tell her to stick her hand in a preheated oven, then imagine God throwing her in that oven without the chance of getting out, even by death.
  • I'm sorry, Nick. I couldn't hear you over my vibrator. Could you repeat that, please?
  • Let's face it, anyone majoring in art history is making their own hell, they don't need to hear from the likes of you, There seem to many "christians" that delight in the suffering of non-believers. Even your Jesus told you it was not your place to judge. I suggest that you do your own "house cleaning" and butt out of other people's business. Besides eternity with the self-righteous looks like hell to me.
  • BECAUSE 'HELL' IS OUR COMMON GRAVE, WE WILL ALL END UP THERE... But if you are wishing harm on another, as in hoping they will suffer, then this is a false teaching... (Revelation 20:14) And death and Ha′des were hurled into the lake of fire. This means the second death, the lake of fire. Hades = Hell... Can a condition suffer? I doubt it...so the 'lake' is destruction... no death=no hell=no GRAVES. I.E. HELL-GRAVES. (Revelation 20:12-13) And I saw the dead, the great and the small, standing before the throne, and scrolls were opened. But another scroll was opened; it is the scroll of life. And the dead were judged out of those things written in the scrolls according to their deeds. 13 And the sea gave up those dead in it, and death and Ha′des gave up those dead in them, and they were judged individually according to their deeds.
  • Yes, it is rude unless you were having a discussion about biblical morality and suggesting that she might go to hell if she doesn't change her ways. You are not god, and the decision regarding who goes to hell is not yours.
  • It's incredibly rude and completely none of your business what she does. You should learn to stay out of other people'e business.
  • I think you might have tried to tell her she is guilty etc. That is something church teaches you. You are a sinner or guilty etc. It's that she should feel it by herself. That is actual punishment for her.
  • You bet! [and giving you ten bucks too!] ;-)
  • i was told a similar thing by a "friend" during highschool. she said that to lot of people and i know she thought she was doing it for our benefit but it wasn't received well. in my opinion i think everyone is entitled to believe whatever they what. i will respect her beliefs and i would expect her to do the same (by not jamming her opinion down my throat).
  • lol... threatened is that all...I would have sat you on your arse!... who the hell do you think you are telling someone they are going to hell if they don't repent...repent for what?..her sins? and what sins would they be?...ones you read in a book that man wrote?, the same book that many preach from while at the same time being first class hypocrites
  • Yes, it is rude. No, she should not be thanking you. She should be carrying out her threat, in my not so humble opinion.
  • What is wrong with you man? I'm suprised she only threatened violence - cause I would've envoked it! It's not only rude but completely judgemental & hurtful! Instead of being so awful to people & asking asinine questions you need to realize that not everyone practices their faith the same way that you do. I ask for forgiveness every day & pray for those that have sinned against me.... it is up to them for ask for forgiveness from God. But to answer the last part of your question, NO, there is NOTHING she should be thanking you for!!!!! Shame on you!
  • Shouldn't YOU be "not judging lest you be judged"?
  • Thanking you for telling her that she is going to be tortured in eternal damnation? I don't know. Would you thank a Hindu for informing you that you have bad kharma and are going to come back as a slug? Yes, it is rude. You have no way of knowing what happens in the afterlife. You have beliefs, but that is quite different from factual knowledge. Unless she asked your opinion, you shouldn't be giving it.
  • It's v.interfeering because she may not be religious or even believe in Heaven or Hell
  • Are you fucking serious?
  • Very rude and presumptuous as there is no way you know what will happen to anyone.
  • It's not just rude. It's inappropriate. What right do you have to tell someone he or she is going to Hell? You're not God. How could you possibly know that? Oh, and, yeah, she should be thanking you ... for letting her know that you bought into mainstream Christian bullshit.
  • "Nick", since you seem to be preoccupied with your lofty spiritual existence, let me tell you how things work down here in the real world. Regardless of whether you are right or wrong, if you go around getting in people's faces and telling them they are going to Hell, you are just going to destroy whatever minuscule chance you had of a meaningful exchange of ideas. Sure, you get to feel smug about being "right", at the expense of repelling people from Christianity. Surely, if you lead by example, people will be more interested in what you have to say, right? It's no wonder you've never gotten laid.
  • Tell them the truth in love.Be gracious,and tell them the gospel.It is true love to warn people.If you didn't love them,you wouldn't warn them,yet people can't see that.If they get angry,don't argue with them,just tell them the truth and move on.
  • It's not rude at all to tell people what they are doing is wrong. The bible actually says to. But you can't just tell them they're doing wrong then just walk away. People who "just have sex" like that are committing a sin and will not inherit the kingdom of God. Read Galations 5.
  • I'm going to guess you didn't particularly like to be threatened with physical violence. How is it that much different to the girl? You basically threatened her with your BELIEFS of a neverending physically violent situation. Anybody who pushes a belief on someone else is trying to control or manipulate another person's behavior. People don't like that. Especially when there's no proof to back your claim up. Have you talked to anyone in hell? How about before the next time you push your beliefs on someone, you figure out if it's something you can prove first. If you want to open a discussion with her about the reasons for going to hell, then that's a different story. Bottom line, don't ever try to control people, there are always better ways to get your point across in a more acceptable manner. +3
  • The problem isn't that you told her, the problem is that you're wrong -- it's bad advice because it's based on fallacies and superstitions. If you had told her to drown her cat because cats are all witches, that would have been in a similar category -- minus the violence, of course.
  • It is pure arrogance on your part to presume that YOU can look into someone else's heart and consider yourself sufficiently informed to make such a determination. It is your folly to think that you can change someone else's behavior with your condescending and know-it-all attitude, belief and preaching. It is ignorance on your part to maintain a belief that YOU have a complete understanding of God's mind and plans for eternity. In general, we consider it rude to tell someone to "Go to Hell." Likewise, it approaches that level of rudeness to "point out to someone" that they are already going that way. I'm not expecting you to understand a word of this, and I don't plan to discuss it with you. I'm only saying this so that others might read it and respond if they wish to.
  • Hell is actually a very nice place. I live there. Actually, I'm in Hell right now. :)
  • Did the girl ask you for this information? No? Didn't think so. Yes, it's rude.
  • Yes, it's rude and I think you know that. How could you not find something wrong with saying that? You would have been in deep s___ saying something like that to me.
  • Yes, it IS rude. However, she should not have threatened you with physical violence. Violence is almost never the answer (self-defense being the exception, and I hardly think that is the case here). I think that both of you behaved inappropriately.
  • It is rude, it is up to her if/when a person decides to become Christian. It isn't up to you to do that.
  • You are promoting wrongful teaching... There is no eternal punishment... (Romans 6:23) For the wages sin pays is death, but the gift God gives is everlasting life by Christ Jesus our Lord. Wages are always FULL payment..no matter how small...So our death is FULL payment for whatever we have done wrong...so there is nothing further to be punished for...
  • Nick - you going to hell fella if you don't clean up your act! Now wasn't that a rude thing for me to say to you - I certainly think so. Not everyone buys into your brand of religion Nick - most likely your going to be in the minority in most places outside of your church - so in all honesty nobody is really interested in your opinions about whether they are a likely candidate for hell or not. Your comment to this girl was arrogant and presumptuous and in all honesty you don't know whether she is destined for hell or not....because there is no way you could know that with any certainty. You are guilty of a sin Nick - you presume too much when you are doing the lords business without knowing the whole story on the situation...not only that but your obviously uninformed remark did so anger this woman so much that she wished to do you physical harm...so you provoked her for no reason other than as a feeble attempt to justify your beliefs and piety at the expense of others. You with your ego have not only presumed too much into Gods affairs but has by you actions implied that you are somehow better than this woman - and it is written that all are equal in the sight of God - and that you should not judge others least you be judged too. Is it "rude" to tell people that they are going to hell...for the Almighty to do it there is no rudeness - for you to do it is not just rude but is a sin against God...and for your bad behavior you should apologize to this woman - all around her that heard you make this remark - and to God himself. Arrogance and stupidity to not win you a place in heaven Nick - they get you a one way ticket to the other place...which is where you will no doubt wind up if you don't end this idiotic behavior of yours. All the best to you sir.
  • Yes it's rude my social standards, but it is not wrong ;) It's only wrong if it was wrong for Jesus to do it, and we can't deny that he was very callous about it to the Pharisees. I think we gotta start looking at this kind of thing the way he did.
  • Its considerably extreme and 100% hilarious. Wish id seen it.
  • 5-21-2017 2 Corinthians 5:20 "Now then we are ambassadors for Christ, as though God did beseech you by us: we pray you in Christ's stead, be ye reconciled to God." Ambassadors, not street peddlers. You really should learn the business before you try to tell others about it. Read a chapter of Proverbs every day. Proverbs has 31 chapters so you can keep your place by just looking at a calendar. There is no religion or nothing in Proverbs and you don't have to believe anything. Just read to find wisdom. When you are comfortable with that, then read the bible from Romans to 2 Thessalonians over and over until you start to remember what it says. That is the part that applies to Christians.
  • Come off your high horse. who is anyone to judge another situation. I think there's a log in your eye.
  • That's judgment, an unsolicited opinion, and an imposition of beliefs, which yes, is highly disrespectful. No one has the right to condemn someone else's choices. This girl's life is none of your business. Who the fuck are you that she or anyone else needs your approval and to claim to know a thing about eternal fate is bullshit. What evidence is there that anything in the bible is true? It's just a book, like any other. I had something similar said to me in an email several years ago by a Catholic guy from my college English class whom I had been casually dating and I was instantly done with him. I never spoke to him again and fortunately, he made that easier for me by having planned to transfer schools after the semester was out anyway.
  • No. As you may be the one facing eternal punishment rather than her. Evil lurks in men who think they are "saved" as evil grows in them unchecked. Humble men are closer to God as they help others do good and do good themselves without judging them.
