I consider it very evasive

I consider it very evasive when you make a claim that I am taking something out of context without explain what.
Then when I ask what is wrong with my understood context and thus what is your context, you just ignore the question or change subject.

That is being evasive and make an unsupported claim.

"You are taking it our of context"

This phrase is so much abused that theists could start replacing the "good morning" with it.

Some humor which is needed sometimes:

Yeah I've watched a few of

Yeah I've watched a few of these. Funny stuff. Actually I'm just as hard on christians when they take things out of context. The most annoying one, because it's so often quoted, is Jeremiah 29:11: "For I know the plans I have for you. Plans to prosper you and not to harm you, to give you a hope and a future." Not written to 21st century people in rich western nations, but they keep claiming it.

"This phrase is so much abused that theists could start replacing the 'good morning' with it." Ha. If people say it so often though, it could also mean that you actually are taking things out of context? Anyway, that's just an observation. I can't quite remember what we were originally talking about.

Morality of Jesus and you

Morality of Jesus and you were finally going to explain why reason and jeuse agree with the given example you and I listen.

I showed that Jesus message is different then reason tus what you are teaching to your kids is incorrect.

Jesus path is the wrong path since it does not conform to reality but makes you do evil things.

it is possible that Im

it is possible that Im starting to mix up all the unsupported claims you have to explain or answer yet, true.

The fact is that you haven't really answered any of those.

Your replies do not deal in explaining the context you so much are happy to use to exonerate Jesus or God.

You just give an analogy that does not really fit well with the context you haven't yet explained.

I am starting to think that you haven't even read the passage.
But instead make an analogy on what you think Jesus SHOULD be.(the good you)
It is not the case if you read the bible without your bias.
