    Biblical Christianity can be summed up like this:

    That's fine and all, but that still doesn't explain why you deny Keirkegaard is a Christian. I never read anything from him that disputed the above. To be honest, it sounds like you're being a dick for no reason.

    Well, maybe he needs to learn the difference between disliking someone, and denying fellowship/inclusion/community/whatever you call it with God. He's making himself out to be someone who has the specific requirements of "salvation" because... he doesn't like them? If his beliefs turn out to be true, and he keeps thinking that way, then he's going to be pissed off once he gets in heaven. It's impossible that he'll be able to agree with the.. hypothetical gazillions of souls there.

    I don't have time to respond to every question. I have to prioritize.

    Ok, I doubt Kierkegaard would dispute with the truth of that.

    For those interested(especially @Zarathustra), here's Ellie Bostwick's Kierkegaard vs. Nietzsche: Discerning the Nature of True Christian Faith, which helps shed certain light on Kierkegaard's religious perspectives.

    Then stop making thoughtless statements. It would help slim down the questions. For example, if you're going to make a call on who's Christian (and, I assume, "saved" in your eyes), even when that very person, more or less, believes in the same precepts you do.. well.. then you should explain further on why. Apparently you have more requirements for what's Christian than what you have stated so far.

    But like I said in my entrance to this thread, it's even better to not say anything at all. To simply shut up. This way, you get no questions.

    I'm just gonna post what I want to post when I want to post.

    But you may be right. It might be better just to lurk.

    This is tedious beyond belief.

    I hope you're not trying to blame that on me though. I'm surprised you can't simply say "Hmm.. my bad. I didn't actually consider the possibility that Kierkegaard was a Christian." Or, if you don't want to admit that, then you would need to explain what being a Christian is beyond quoting John 3:16. You seem to have other requirements that you don't want to talk about. Because it's tedious to explain or something. Must suck if it's that's difficult, but it's not my religion, is it? It's yours.

    Yes, you have made this very tedious.

    More so than anyone else, so far.
