“The Bible is not a fragmentary document......it is the Word of God. In it are the words of life and it tells people how they may be reconciled to God. If you repent and believe the gospel of Jesus Christ you can be forgiven of your sins. If you believe on Him you will not be condemned, but if you believe not you are condemned already because you have not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God (John 3:18).”

“Okay then explain 2 Kings 25:27 and Jeremiah 52:31. The King James version says they "did lift up the head of" which means to gladden, so the key term is that they informed the subject on two different days. None of this "Well they issued the edict onthe 25th day and released him on the 27th". That won't wash.”

“It's not the "Word of God"...it is the words of a bunch of old men that condoned slavery and misogyny. Do you condone those same things as your "Word of God"? And it is fragmented...look up the Council of Nicea...those were the old coots who got to decide which of those fragments got to go in the good ol' book.”

“Moral Code, according to the Bible:

#1. When were Adam and Eve Married? (Don't say that "God" married them) because that is not in the Bible and you would be Lying!

#2. Adam and Eve had three sons... Who did they have sex with? (There has to be incest in there some place!)

#3. God Kills every Man, Women and Child on the earth except Noah and his Family (Plus a few animals)
and then turns around and tells us in the Ten Commandments... "Thou Shall Not Kill" (So your "God" is a kind of a "Do as I say, Not as I do" kind of God. Don't you think?)

#4. And here we are back at now having only Noah's family left to populate the earth. (More incest? Right?)

#5. Is it "An eye for an eye" or "Turn the other Cheek?" (With over 1200 Contradictions, you would think "believers" would start to question what they are reading)

“The Bible says alot of other things wmu, you ought to read it to find out the whole truth of what God's Word says. It also says "the wages of sin in death, but the gift of God is eternal life", and "For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son (Jesus Christ) that whosoever believes in Him shall not perish but have everlasting life". and "If we confess our sins He (God) is just and able to forgive us of our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness" (1 John 1:8-10). God is the judge, but Christians preach and proclaim God's Word so that people might know what it says-- so that they will not die in their sins.”

“hey dbegger- welcome to the real world - but do tell - from under which rock did you crawl? Jesus - said there was a new commandment - that was the "whole of the law" - It was about treating your neighbor as you would like to be treated. But since you are not a christian you wouldn't know about that. From what I hear - christians need to be following the teachings of the deity, Jesus - Something that you are not doing - Even here on HP - you are breaking that commandment and it's perfectly clear that in your real world - you have no interest in the teachings of the deity, jesus.”

TokyoTea on Jul 29, 2012 at 10:40:23

“Newsflash: Not every Christian thinks being gay is wrong. Many churches don't believe that the Levitical code has authority over us—we eat pork, wear mixed fabrics, and don't back the death penalty for working on Sunday. Many Christians don't take the Bible literally at all, and permit divorce.

As to the word of God, particularly in Christianity, it has a lot more to do with what's in your heart than with regulating other people's perceived wrongs. You know, that verse about the beam in your own eye...”

unimatrix0 on Jul 28, 2012 at 16:20:20

“So there are adulters in church, no thieves, no one that wears clothes made of more than 1 fabric, no one that eats pork? The old tesiment laws say man should not lay with another man, they also say to eat kosher and to marry the women you rape. In the new testiment (Christians), Jesus said nothing about homosexuality or adultery. I think he understood human behavior, and you can't accept people if you are also trying to shame them. He was more concerned that people were not mean or unfair to each other, not on their purity status.”

“Please. You can't try to hide behind the shield of amendments like a coward. Nobody stated that he didn't have the right to speak his opinion. Do we see him arrested because of it? Is he prosecuted to the full extend of the law? No. He has every right.

However, we have every right to agree with him. Funny thing is, the amendments aren't reserved for one particular party. You have every right to hate homosexuals, the same way we have every right to hate you for that opinion.

At the same time, his "opinion" that you are lauding him over, is one to specifically limit the rights of others. There were plenty of people that felt that way back in the Jim Crow days, and women's rights movement. You have every right to an opinion. You do not, however, have a right to subjugate others with it.”

“Christians are told to "Flee sexual immorality. Every sin that a man does is outside the body, but he who commits sexual immorality sins against his own body" (I Corinthians 6:18). The Word of God also tells us "Now the works of the flesh are evident, which are: adultery, fornication, uncleanness, lewdness, idolatry, witchcraft, hatred, contentions, jealousies, outbursts of wrath, selfish ambitions, dissensions, heresies, envy, murders, drunkenness, revelries, and the like; of which I tell you beforehand, just as I also told you in time past, that those who practice such things will not inherit the kingdom of God. But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, long-suffering, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, self-control. Against such there is no law. And those who are Christ's have crucified the flesh with its passions and desires. If we live in the Spirit, let us also walk in the Spirit" (Galatians 5:19-25).”

“So in other words, fake Christians only like to cherry pick their way through the Bible and ignore the things that are directed at them and their sins and take a stance against the things that are directed at their own bigotries. If fake Christians like Kirk and Rick Santorum wanted to be consistent, they'd spend as much time advocated against the right of adulterers and non-Virgins to be allowed to marry as they randomly decide that only homosexuals shouldn't. Consistency is not a trait of the Religious Right. The only consistent trait they have is selective use of the Bible to deny people Constitutional rights.”

Or that bacteria MUTATE to form new strains? That's why we have diseases, plants, and animals now that didn't exist way back when.
