  1. I've heard a lot of problems with wine when it comes to getting games to work. I think its because all of DirectX hasn't been ported yet.
  2. I think you have to first activate force speed, pull the lever, and the down time which was a second should now be long enough for you to run through.
  3. Merry Christmas to you too and to all of you guys .
  4. I understand, I told you in another thread exactly how I feel about this and I mentioned the dream I had that initiated my faith. I see without any shred of evidence why its hard to believe, don't get me wrong. I just hope everyone here receives the evidence they need eventually . By the "commandment" about killing children are you referring to Abraham's test?
  5. I don't think anyone knows fully what He's up to or why He does things the way He does. Most of is just faith when He says that He loves the world that He works out things for the best for all of humanity.
  6. I believe the definitions you've used for behavior and love are not necessarily universal, maybe to you it isn't love, but many others would still conclude it is but I won't debate this point anymore as it seems heavily subjective. You are right, Jesus did say He did not come to abolish the law but He also said He came to fulfill it and whatever the purpose of the law was was gratified. Now you've brought up a good question of the Omniscience of God and why He would need to change His mind about the rules. I should have mentioned this earlier as it would have cleared up many things. One thing to keep in mind is that in the Bible there are many ages or even stages of history. From the creation of man till the law was handed, there was little guidance, I can speak a bit for the different sections of the Bible after that: First there was the law handed down by Moses --> during this time the Hebrews fled out of Israel, they were a struggling nation as they were mostly slaves and they were almost a paramilitary organization due to the harsh conditions and harsh cultures around them. They were given extreme measures and penalties to meet the law as things such as promiscuity, over working yourself, touching carcasses, and diet would greatly influence the survival of this struggling group of people. Then came the time when Israel was a kingdom --> Now survival was not as paramount as keeping society together, penalties for breaking the law were not as harsh as even God Himself would deal out less than what Moses had recommended. Remember King David was forgiven for his adultery (an act punishable by death under Moses), he repented but he still had to face the consequences of his actions. From the period the law was handed down to the birth of Christ, the purpose of the law was to help the nation of Israel. For what reason this kingdom was built i'm not very clear about, some purposes I do know is that it helped bring about the the prophecies and lineage of the Messiah Christ. Next we have the coming of Christ and the age of the Church --> The Old Testament law was fulfilled and the job of the Church to to help heal the world of its many problems and to bring many people to God ultimately via Christ. This is why in Christianity we are called to love, be compassionate, yet also stand on certain issues and the importance of these ideals help us bring many people to Him. Way after this comes the antichrist and then the revealing of God to all of humanity --> Mankind divides into two camps, one that unites under God and the rest who follow Satan for whatever reasons. Since God has revealed Himself openly to humanity, people are now without excuse and the time for compassion and such ideals are over for those who choose to separate themselves from Him. Its not so much that the Bible contradicts itself on rules or that God changes His mind on them because He feels He initially messed up. He has a set plan for all of humanity which are composed of stages and different allowances. Hope I clarified some stuff up.
  7. Now I think others have pointed out the rules of the Old Testament were meant for a different purpose, the Church in general have a different purpose on this Earth than what the nation of Israel was intended to accomplish. You pointed out earlier that I think you also understood this (I think?) and therefore was trying to avoid rules from the Old Testament. Now as to the analogy, the point wasn't whether or not homosexuality is wrong (we have our own defense of this which is whole another debate), but how I could not accept certain things of a person's actions and or character yet still love them. Hope this clarifies some of the things a bit.
  8. I think we have different labels of what love and tolerance is then. I could have a son that was a terrorist and not accept what he was doing yet still love him and wish he would return to a moral life. I think you might also define your terms differently from how the Bible would define them, hence take differing passages as contradictory.
  9. Ofcourse those types of people exist, there are people that will pervert anything. Christ's (the founder of this religion) commandments are pretty much clear and override any other vague rules that others may "interpret". I think Jedispy and I had a problem with this statement. Not sure how you arrived at this conclusion and people like Jedispy and I do interpret those commandments literally and still consider ourselves peaceful, loving etc.
  10. Hey man, I don't think I was missing any words but I think I was missing some punctuation. It was late and I was tired, sorry . What I meant was how can a person objectively say that two positions are equally valid?
  11. I don't see that as a requirement, but even if that was true how it allows two positions of Christianity to be equally valid even when there are clear passages that are really hard to interpret another way.
  12. But who is to say which interpretations are more valid? I would say someone who's studied the Bible for a whole for quite some time without biasing to particular passages taken out of context would be closer to having that authority than say the average Joe who hates someone and uses the Bible to "justify" it. In the end you can take any work and make it say anything you want it to say.
  13. Do you know how to mess with the shaders? You can just go to the protect/see/absorb/rage etc shaders and just replace them with blank stuff.
  14. Jedi Trainer, ugnaught or blue imperial engineer.
  15. I give thanks to Christ for every good thing. Thank my parents and sister for all the love they've shown me. Friends for all the support. Great artists like old school George Lucas, Freddie Mercury, etc for moving me.
  16. I think they've been nut cases on both sides. Its just just limited to them, remember the Westboro guys?
  17. Yeah man, JO sp was sweet. Even the parts without the lightsaber.

    Ooh, this looks like a great idea. During which times do you guys generally train?
  19. Shaders always were a bit hard for me , it was just a matter of trial and error for me to get what I wanted.
  20. Kurgan, Razor and I tried porting some of the demo to MP and I've had some fun w/ coop. I still have to contact the authors for official permission to do anything major with it though .
  21. Hmm, i'm pretty sure PC's will catch up with Xbox 360's as it has only 3 cores and PCs will have 4 usually by next year, but you're probably right. Releasing Force Unleashed for PC would probably not be a smart business move.
  22. Try disabling things like dynamic glow, I think some cards don't do it well.
