Bible study rules because children need to learn morality as well as they need to learn the facts of life.

Yep, the bible is a great example of how not to act.

If you use the Bible as a moral authority how do you decide which stories are teaching good morals and which are not? Obviously this is one of reasons we have so many different churches. Nobody can agree.

If the Bible was a clearly written, unified source of moral authority then we could easily figure out how to behave using the book and we wouldn't argue about it.

Yet what you really find are stories in which God tells his people to kill babies, stories about obeying your masters to the death, lessons on how to treat your slaves, condemnations of homosexuals, witches, and a general disdain for women.

Hidden in all that garbage are a few decent lines about being a good person. Even the beloved sermon on the mount includes language that is not morally sound, as well as a ton of contradictions.

(Iron Chariots Wiki has an excellent smackdown of the sermon on the mount: http://wiki.ironchariots.org/index.php... )

When you have a huge book full of varying ideas and you give them book moral authority you have created a way in which people can be subjugated. Then a charismatic leader will come along and dumb people will flock to him and you end up with with Jonestown, Westboro, or the Berean Baptist Church in Fayetteville, NC:

Yeah. Its a great idea to give a**holes that that guy a book and call it divine moral authority.

Our new Pope chose the namesake of his order, "Saint Francis of Assisi, the 13th century Catholic friar and preacher who founded the beggar-monk movement through his Franciscan order. He emphasized a life of asceticism and humility, and created a powerful voice for the poor the church couldn't ignore."

Same sex marriage is the opposite of the Franciscan ideal; hedonism over asceticism and lust for political power redefining marriage for everyone over humility.

Same sex marriage is wrong because its too much to ask and a violation of taboo.

Jeremiah 25:32,33
Dead bodies from one end of the earth to the other end
“This is what Jehovah of armies has said,‘Look! A calamity is going forth from nation to nation, and a great tempest itself will be roused up from the remotest parts of the earth. 33 And those slain by Jehovah will certainly come to be in that day from one end of the earth clear to the other end of the earth. They will not be bewailed, neither will they be gathered up or be buried. As manure on the surface of the ground they will become.’
34 “Howl, YOU shepherds (religious leaders), and cry out! And wallow about, YOU majestic ones of the flock, because YOUR days for slaughtering and for YOUR scatterings have been fulfilled, and YOU must fall like a desirable vessel! 35 And a place to flee to has perished from the shepherds, and a means of escape from the majestic ones of the flock. 36 Listen! The outcry of the shepherds, and the howling of the majestic ones of the flock, for Jehovah is despoiling their pasturage. 37 And the peaceful abiding places have been rendered lifeless because of the burning anger of Jehovah. 38 He has left his covert just like a maned young lion, for their land has become an object of astonishment because of the maltreating sword and because of his burning anger.”
Two things!

(1) I did not recognise these verses, and had to read them in my refferences, are these from your JW Bible?

(2) you gave Jeremiah 25:32,33, and posted to 38!
As always in a posted read, I go back a few verses to get the whole picture.

I've linked my online resource for you!
Hope you find it usefull!
Also... You can go to the store, and find Libronix digital Bible refferences!
God Bless!

go and read the bible and then u might be able to understand what im sayin then. i find it funny that the believers hardly ever know anything in the bible except for jesus died for me and all i gotta do is believe and get baptised and im goin to heaven. the problem is they fail to read all the fine print in the book just as ppl dont read fine print in contracts. not one single person i know of in america is a real christian, no matter if u say u are or not. i can show the scriptures to prove it cuz i do actually know whats in the book but when u do point it out in the bible they will still ignore it cuz they think they can change gods word to what suits them just as u do everyday yourself. hypocrisy is worse than sinning u know, all the christian hypocrites will be in hell with the atheist if the abrahamic god is the real one out of all the others, that is if there is a god at all anyway.
Do you think the thief on the cross next to Jesus...
Fallowed the commandments, and was Baptized?
No! it was a change of heart! He repented!

See, you want to pick and choose from your bible with out reading it or knowing much about the god you worship or the bible you want to teach.
Why not write a new bible and create another new god, you can make jesus English or French instead of a towelhead

Who gets to choose what is "moral" and "immoral"?
Our society teaches that it is wrong to harm others. My religion states that it is wrong to violate another person, that is good morals.
A bible that tells men to sell their daughters as sex slaves and to own slaves is not moral

I don't remember Jesus saying to do these things!
Jesus told a parable of two sons...
One stayed home, and begrugingly did what he was told, the other
went and squandered his life... you know the story!
It's a heart thing!

There was no thief and there was no cross.
The new testament was made up in Constantine around the third century CE
Funny how there was no new testament in the middle east

That's NOT from anything I(!) ascribe to reading out of ANY book I read-except maybe signs and symptoms of the severely psychologically twisted and warped.

Why do you keep insisting I, and others, worship this evil gawd character YOU have perceptionalized? Nope, sorry, there were NO gawds like that (EWE) in my upbringing. And there still isn't. That some wacko stuff dude.

The Bible is a BOOK (did you happen to catch the post that even stated-translated from latin-bible means BOOK) scribed by mostly men inspired to do so. Don't drag the rest of us into that dark age, stone age, under a rock sicko crappola. Noooooo thank you.
Ewe.

Since you have made a new god from the old jewish god you are creating a god to reflect what you can sell to others with more ease.

and gleaning common sense, decency, ethics and morality from those kinds of good life lessons, tell some of the rest of us, some stuff in life, just isn't, nor ever was, for "sale".

I Love science, and have read many things, watched even more!
When I was sitting in my shed, depressed with a

and spark the lighter, a voice came from everywhere!
The voice said "Don't do it...!"..
The depression left immediately!
That, and MANY other things Trump your version of any proof
