It wasn't the end of the world as we know it. B16 and The Biebs are in a Twitter throw-down. And should church bells toll for the Newtown shooter? All in today's Religion News Roundup.

  1. i’M ROOTING FOR THE HACKERS TOO! i’VE GOT TO SAY THAT I AM COMPLETELY FRUSTRATED AND ANGRY THAT THESE “RELIGIOUS LEDERS THINK THAT THEY SPEAK FOR ME OR YOU AS CHRISTIANS. I’VE BEEN THINKING OF SOMETHING TO CALL MYSELF BESIDES CHRISTIAN WHEN I FILL OUT SOMETHING LIKE A HOSPITAL ASKS YOU WHEN ADMITTING YOU. i, IN NO WAY WANT TO BE IDENTIFIED WITH THESE SO CALLED “CHRISTIANS. cHRIST HIMSELF SAID THAT YOU WOULD KNOW THEM BY THEIR FRUITS. i SEE THESE PEOPLE’S FRUITS AND JUST AM FILLED WITH ANGER AND SADNESS, ESPECIALLY FOR THOSE WHO HAVE BEEN DECEIVED BY THESE PEOPLE. sO, ANYBODY GOT AN IDEA OF WHAT I CAN CALL MYSELF OTHER THAN CHRISTIAN OR BELIEVER? ? bELIEVER IS OKAY BUT i WANT SOMETHING A LITTLE MORE UNIQUE THAT SAYS I BELIEVE AS MUCH AS I CAN, IN THE WORDS OF CHRIST. WITHOUT ACCIDENTLY OR OTHERWISE, BEING IDENTFIED WITH THESE CHRISTIAN FUNDIMENTALIST’S.

      GOD HATES FALSE RELIGION as much as you (and I). He calls her “Babylon the Great” the mother of the harlots and the disgusting things of the earth… Revelation 17:4-6. He will soon destroy her and plague her followers so you should “get out of her” if you want to please God. (Rev. 18:4) I did 25 years ago. But as you said, you still are someone who believes in God (and probably the Bible). I have studied the Bible and many other sources with Jehovah’s Witnesses and have proven to myself just what the TRUTH is… You should try a Bible Study with your local Witnesses and just see what I’m saying. I thank God everyday that he has given me true knowledge…and a real hope for when “the end of days” actually does come…

    • Describe yourself as “a follower of Jesus”.
      Or a “Jesus follower”.
      Be very basic.

      Your sadness at the unfortunate behavior of some is understandable.
      Paul wrote, “beware of evil workers and dogs”.
      That’s the best explanation I’m sure.
