The Bible is the Bible. You have all or none, there's no "skimping down".
Sin is what God says sin is. It's not what man has decided it is.......That itself, is sin.
That is a beautiful description--thank you. FWIW, I too can see some poetic truth in the notion of the atonement. But not as a literal narrative.
Since there is no method for verifying that claim, I neither concede nor presume to be right. I wagered 1billion USD
Dickens preponderance upon the "hooknosed Jew" always left me oddly unconvinced of his larger commentary on the injustices of Britain.
Get rid of all 3 Abrahamic religions, and this discussion would make no sense.
it doesn't matter if we can prove or disprove it. Logic dictates, withhold belief until there is sufficient evidence. How dare I make life decisions based on a god nobody can prove is real?
That much we can agree on
BTW, Christians were doing that long before Muhammad's birth.
sorry, If I tried to sell you a car but said, don't get it safetied, just take my word for it. You'd say forget it, I need proof it works.
Another lame attempt at projecting your racism on me. Your racism is so noted. What's wrong with a living wage law?
Our daughter is now of an age to fight endlessly with her parents. The US continues its amazingly successful effort to be first in being worst across a broad range of metrics. I am working harder than ever. Health-wise we are doing a lot better. It could be far worse.
" ... about the US policy on illegals where men get separated from their women and children and locked up in detention facilities ... " That is a true statement. Ask Pablo and Chaca Villavicencio about its veracity.
10. Thou shalt not seethe a kid in his mother?s milk.
Nope, not murder
I?m not perfect like you ... I?ll try harder okay????
I don't block anyone, but if someone is being an asshat I try my best to ignore them
I probably wouldn?t get a newborn son circumcised now, but my 40 year old son has told me that he?s glad he?s circumcised so there is that.
I heard if you block a cat on the internet.... you stop existing or David Hasselhoff will rise from the dead and sing the 'milkshake' song all day long.... true story.
whoa.... wait... Monday was a travel day that's right... Brain fart there.... I thought today was Wednesday.. thanks.
I don't need the ignorant trying to "educate" me, but thanks for your dumb opinions yet again.
We?ve learned a lot since primitive humans used their imagination, motivated by their fear and ignorance, to create gods for protection and support, and invented mythologies to explain what their very limited knowledge could not.
I was late 2 days in a row because of construction... My personal procedure is if you are going to be late bring donuts. I need to leave earlier... Ughhhhj.
you have good little kittys,then
that's why I said should not instead of cannot or are forbidden to, it is obvious in my statement
As compared to the sewage that comes from CNN and others, I feel safe knowing that I'm not the one that wrote the piece and that you would know had you followed and read it.
But god was with HIM.
excellent :) I'm glad!
Maybe. Gotta find the right one. I don't want to break anything up like that.
So no more preaching is needed? It was for that time period only and not today? You are correct! The head of a Christian man is Christ, I agree. So no one receives the Holy Spirit today?
Yes, drive.. sorry.
First and foremost, I'm curious as to how the Bible could be portrayed as "all horror". Full disclosure, I am a Christian, but that means I've studied up. One of the biggest points of misunderstanding about the Bible comes from when people point out old levitical laws and say "look, it says this really harsh and violent thing!", but what people often overlook is that the Old Testament laws were replaced when Jesus came. If something is to be objectively true, then you can't just pick and choose what is true with it. I'd be happy to try and answer some questions people have about the Bible though. What do you guys think?
