You can see it in their eyes, but yer to into Sin to
see it!
Buy a clue!
I dont "step out" on my wife. I have good morals because I am a good person, not from fear of punishment.
You on the other hand ignore your gods words and commit sexual perversions.

the key problem is that consciousness is not anthropic per se.
I do not hold the opinion that a cell or a mass of cells is "conscious". I suppose that one could argue that an amoeba displays a modicum of intelligence in its motility and "search" for food. I am not so inclined to anthropomorphize the mechanics of biochemical reactions, even as complex as they might appear to a new age hippy, sentimental romantic, or House Science Committee member.(Not implying you are any of the above.)

Romans
1:16 For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ: for it is the
power of God to salvation to every one that believeth; to the
Jew first, and also to the Greek.
1:17 For in this is the righteousness of God revealed from faith
to faith: as it is written, The just shall live by faith.
1:18 For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all
ungodliness, and unrighteousness of men, who hold the truth in
unrighteousness.
1:19 Because that which may be known of God, is manifest in
them; for God hath shown [it] to them.
1:20 For the invisible things of him from the creation of the
world are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are
made,[even] his eternal power and Godhead; so that they are
without excuse:
1:21 Because that when they knew God, they glorified [him] not
as God, neither were thankful, but became vain in their
imaginations, and their foolish heart was darkened.
1:22 Professing themselves to be wise, they became fools:
1:23 And changed the glory of the incorruptible God into an
image made like to corruptible man, and to birds, and
four-footed beasts, and creeping animals.
1:24 Wherefore God also gave them up to uncleanness, through the
lusts of their own hearts, to dishonor their own bodies between
themselves:
1:25 Who changed the truth of God into a lie, and worshiped and
served the creature more than the Creator, who is blessed for
ever. Amen.
1:26 For this cause God gave them up to vile affections. For
even their women did change the natural use into that which is
against nature:
1:27 And likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the
woman, burned in their lust one towards another; men with men
working that which is unseemly, and receiving in themselves
that recompense of their error which was meet.
1:28 And even as they did not like to retain God in [their]
knowledge, God gave them over to a reprobate mind, to do those
things which are not convenient;
1:29 Being filled with all unrighteousness, fornication,
wickedness, covetousness, maliciousness; full of envy, murder,
debate, deceit, malignity; whisperers,
1:30 Backbiters, haters of God, despiteful, proud, boasters,
inventers of evil things, disobedient to parents,
1:31 Without understanding, covenant-breakers, without natural
affection, implacable, unmerciful:
1:32 Who, knowing the judgment of God, that they who commit such
things are worthy of death; not only do the same, but have
pleasure in them that do them.

jesus only quoted scripture to religious people of that faith, to others he spoke in parables/stories.
christ in the latin rites bible is an adjective, or descriptor, it isn't an individual but literally a state of MIND/CONSCIOUSNESS.
you might as well be speaking german to the hindus

It would appear, that you've not been here to see the
Non-Christians posting Scripture, hard to believe, but they do it all the time!
Mostly in snippits to argue against God, but always out of context!
Ya see... They can try to claim morality all they want, but
the Proof is IN the scriptures!
There is no need to re-interpet them, as Killing a baby created by
fornication out of wedlock, or sexual perversions...
pretty much self-explanitory!
The ones that like to re-interpret scriptures, are the same ones that like to re-interpret the Constitution, and other documents.
