When does a belief system fall into the religious category? And when do they become Zealots in their beliefs. Is Atheism a religion, if so when do they become Zealots. Paul was an anti Christian Zealot until he went down the road to Damascus.
So My question is what exactly is a ZEaLOT ???
And how do we know when we become one ?? Help me ai don't know if I want to be one or not.
I would think they are the ones who have total disregard for your personal religious/spiritual thoughts, opinions, practices and condemn one for not being the same.
Is a Zealot a person that has total disregard for the rights of others to have their own beliefs ( as Dame scribe said or)and or feelings concerning anything or can only Christians be Zealous???? I don't know but I thought that the definition of a Zealot can cover much more range than just ... ME... I used to believe Zealously that I should go fishing on Sunday!!
what Istated above I think is clear enough ? Anyone can be a zealot if he's fanatical enough
* S: (n) Zealot (a member of an ancient Jewish sect in Judea in the first century who fought to the death against the Romans and who killed or persecuted Jews who collaborated with the Romans)
* S: (n) partisan, zealot, drumbeater (a fervent and even militant proponent of something)
Zealotry was originally a political movement in first century Judaism which sought to incite the people of Iudaea Province to rebel against the Roman Empire and expel it from the holy land by force of arms, most notably during the Great Jewish Revolt (AD 66-70). Zealotry was described by Josephus as one of the "four sects" at this time.

Time for a new sockpuppet. Let me see, that would make you the sock puppet of a sock puppet of a sock puppet!
He opened a thread 3 hours ago. nobody ventured in there !
Earnest? Honestly, are you educated? I would tend to believe that you are and I see too you are not a child. So why then would stoop to the level of a child in your immaturity so as to name call?
Can you not have a discussion where you do not do that? I think you can.
Ok you choose to not believe and we do, is that any reason to sink to that level?
I think you are a person who can reasonably assert your positions without doing that don't you think?
Come man, can't we just all get along??? LOL
You always come for more. Maybe you're a masochist
you are a sad sick little man arent you?
OOPS! I guess I better note here that was a joke and not meant to reflect that you are in fact sad, or sick, or little, or even a man for that matter. LOL
Yes I'm a sick little man. I'm going to die before the end of this year
I am sorry tantrum I guess my joke was inappropriate then. I will pray for you though, really I will, in all seriousness.
As I do all on here. Whether they believe as I do or not.
Maybe even because of knowing that too.
But I will tantrum. And I know you don't share my belief in healings then either, but I will pray and ask God for a healing in your body whatever the illness may be.
Ok, well its time for me to stop now and get some sleep, nite all!
You obviously wish to know as little as possible about the puppet in question. I have read his hate filled crud on here under other names, the stuff he has written would get you uppity too!
He gets chucked off for a reason!
Earnest you seem to be filled with hate, even if you try and justify the hate, the hate will kill you early!!!
I have read the encyclopedia. That word has been thrown around lately and I wanted to know what "yaul" thought it meant. A Zealot does not necessarily have to be a 1st century Hebrew. I think that we all have the ability to be a Zealot concerning any issue.
I have pondering this issue for a few days.
Faults are kinda like the back of knee caps.
It is easier to see someone less than it is to see our own.
We can do it but it takes extra effort.
If the back of my knee cap says zealot somebody get an eraser

God created all things. He created them and called them what He wanted. All of it. It is His creation so He can call it whatever He wishes.He make the boundaries, sets the limits, just like we do if we create a game or if we own a business. It belongs to us. Nobody is going to tell us how to...

I am very interested to figure out the psychosis that creates this thing called sockpuppeting. Do you have any idea. In case you don't know that there are laws that prevent it - http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sockpuppet_(Internet)
