. I told him that I was a Bible Christian, I knew the Bible meaning(he already knew what it meant)

(quote taken from another thread)

What is a Bible Christian? Does she mean as opposed to a Jehovah's Witness or a LDS who have their own "Bibles"? Are JW and LDS consider themselves Christians?

Don't know about JW but Mormons yes, my mom was so angry when I asked her as a kid if we were Christians, I didn't know!

A bible Christian is any person who follows the interpretation of the bible that the speaker follows. It means that there interpretation is so correct and obvious that anyone who disagrees with them hasn't followed the bible. It is a very arrogant mindset

Well, a Bible Christian is the one who is better than a Torah Christian or a Koran Christian, obviously. I mean, there are just so many types of Christian that she has to specify which holy text she prefers.

I think perhaps people who refer to themselves as Bible Christians might often consider themselves to be "sola scriptura" or - relying on the Bible alone (or at least, highly prioritized over additional church teachings) for their faith. Some Christian sects take a looser or more allegorical interpretation of the Bible than others, or even disregard parts of the Bible as not applicable, etc. People who are "Bible Christians" are probably more likely to take a strictly literal interpretation of the Bible.

^I was just about to say this.

      So..my son is getting married at the beginning of March and I tried on dresses today. I need to lose weight. I'm about 60-70 pounds overweight and I absolutely have to. I'm not one to post statuses but I'm doing everything I can to hold myself accountable. I'm sitting here wanting to stuff my face and I know this isn't the answer. I can do this. I will be okay. I'm going to make myself check in regularly. Whether or not anyone sees this, I am going to be posting.

      Is anyone here from Moore County, NC?  I hope they catch the domestic terrorists that shot up the power substations.  All to stop a drag show!  Throw the fuckers in jail.

      What do people do in the Sonoran desert? I've hiked the hikes I wanted to do. Seems like all that is left is golf, shopping at chains that exist everywhere, and stuff I've done. Oh and eating. I can only eat so many times a day. It's too cold to rent a paddleboard or swim.

      First snow storm of the season hit today. It got windy tonight, and we lost power. Somehow this continues to be a shock to PSE. Why they refuse to upgrade the infrastructure or do something so that 10s of thousands of people don’t lose power and heat literally every time it’s windy, I do not understand. We live in the Pacific Northwest. It gets windy!

      Nebraska's new football coach is an evangelical bullshit artist who participates in "Man Up Ministries" conferences in the off season. Their motto is "Fighting for Biblical Manhood". Excuse me while I go vomit.

      Don't know I'd charge quite that much though.

      Long time no visit…
      COVID has finally caught up with me. Dad tested positive first, last Friday, then my mother, brother and I all tested positive today. Main symptom is feeling really really tired. Hopefully it doesn’t get much worse 🤞
