i get a laugh out of john 3:13 myself. jesus himself said no one has ever ascended in to heaven except he that came from heaven. but i do have a good question about it...i wonder why jesus never knew of enoch or elijah. the OT states that god took them both up to heaven. kinda funny your prophet and the son of god didnt even know what the old testament had already claimed of those 2 guys. honestly, how can u all really believe such stupidity that is written all through the bible? the divine inspiration cant even match its own stories up from one testament to the other. do any of u know what the bible says of false prophets? and dont any of u all see just how false jesus' prophecies have came to be? u all really should ask yourselves some real questions about your beliefs instead of just believing blindly. if u are gullible about one thing u are gullible about any is what ive always heard so u might wanna watch out about what ppl u allow in to your lives b4 u get taken for everything u got.
And... You "know" Enoch, and Elijah DID NOT come from Heaven in the first place???
Jesus said about John the Baptist, that the people were waiting for Elijah to return... He did IN John!
So... What we don't know... we don't know!
What I DO KNOW... God is real, and He made a simple way
to be redeemed! Faith in Christ!
Amen!
Yes and Amen

there are alot more than 10 laws god gives u in the old testament....go open your bible sometime and u might see them. if u wanna act like they arent in there cuz u wanna live a life of sin u just do that. u are gonna regret it in the end when u see i am right and u are wrong. a little of the same tactics u all use here, if u dont u will go to hell...lol and since u mention exodus 20, just scan on over to verse 13 and then tell me what it says u are to do in it...in fact just read all the way thru chapter 20-23 and take note of how many times god himself tells us to put someone to death (kill). its bad that u quote your book and chapter and the very verse that says to kill is in the same chapter as the verse that says that shall not kill....cant u see the stupidity of it all yet?
He... gave them to the Jews, and reiteraded the Ten in the NT... along with

I for one believe the Bible is indeed the inspired word of God, but I agree with you the public school system is not the place to teach the Bible. Nor is it a place to teach Religion including the THEORY of evolution. I think evolution should be stricken from the public school system and school books.
The Bible and Religion should be taught at home! Or at the religious gathering.
You can believe that it rained for 40 days and nights and the waters rose to a depth of four and a half miles to cover the tops of the highest mountains just a few centuries ago, but you can't wrap your mind around genetic drift over millions of years? Ignorance and faith does not make anything real or true.
There was a time that lightening rods were heresy. There was a time that it was punishable by death to claim that the Earth revolved around the Sun. There was a time when the study of anatomy was branded necromancy and when herbalists were suspected of being witches. Science is not a religion, but it has always been a threat to it. If you first object to evolution being taught in school, what is the next target? Physics? Astronomy? Medicine?

Has ANYONE read the full story of this discussion & not just the TITLE? Well I hadn't! Just did! I'm ashamed of myself for joining a discussion I didn't know the FULL extent of! This Topic has become a trash slinging, rude, disrespectful, name calling discussion! The full story behind this discussion is offering an Elective Course of Bible Study to High School students in KY Public Schools! The State is not trying to ENFORCE Christianity or the Bible on ANY child! The Topic IS NOT who is Right or Wrong, just giving the STUDENTS the right to CHOOSE for themselves. I personally, see nothing wrong with giving the students the RIGHT to make their OWN CHOICE! That's why it is called an Elective Course, not FORCED. I see only one good thing with my participation in this discussion, I got to SHARE MY GODLY Morals & Values with you. So, I respectfully thank you for listening & responding to my comments & I now bow out graciously. And for those who may doubt my CHRISTIANITY, yes, I strive daily to be more Christ like!, and IF I DO FALL, I do repent & ask forgiveness & MY GOD is Just to FORGIVE! May God Bless ALL & Shine His Face Upon You!!!
God Bless you, and yours!
Amen!

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.

How is it that "you" interpret scripture the way you do? I sure do t interpret that way and I'm empathetic and sympathetic. If you READ the bible you will have the answers ... People were not killed for no reason. Take your blinders off
Some versions read Hell, as the Grave, and some verses read it as outer darkness!
Either way... I know there is a place of punishment!
Weeping, and gnashing of teeth, lake of fire don't sound good
at all, but for us that know of God's grace, to be away from that... Pure Hell!
Amen!
I've read the Holy Bible several times... do I know all?
Not by a looooong shot!
But I do know the message God's Grace + Faith in Christ = Salvation!
AMEN!

the Afterlife would be just another crap hole like this world is!

Yer right about the "Golden Rule," YaA - except you know full well that Christians pick and choose when to use the Exodus "eye for an eye" or the Matthew "eye for an eye" - it all boils down to who and what the offender is.
Have you even read PAST those Books?
Try it... You might just UNDERSTAND!
Hope you do!

Man, I hate it when people violate taboo. We have taboos for a reason, people! Stop violating them!

Brian, where can good people go to help support taboos? Long ago I saw the first film in that series but I didn't follow the franchise into the 80s. If possible I want to get back into it, as a moral imperative, and help the cause of taboo!

I think that the Devils who run the Nine Hells probably are more sinister than the Demons who run the 666 Layers of the Abyss. I mean, being Lawful Evil, they have a method of evil. And that seems scarier to me than random acts of senseless evil, as in the Chaotic Evil Demons.

I do remember thinking that Baalzebul (Arch-Devil, Lord of the Seventh, Lord of Flies) was cooler than Mephistopheles (Arch-Devil, Lord of the Eigth), though Mephistopheles has a better AC and has a magic fork weapon.

I don't know though. Demogorgon (Demon Lord, Prince of Demons) is kick ass.

Hard to pick which one is more awesome. All of 'em are hard to kill in straight combat. You need a Paladin or something that's probably Level 15 or better. Definitely need a Holy Avenger or something like that.

Wait...we're talking dumb Bible stuff again aren't we? Dangit.

You are just like FOX news - defending your right to cherry pick AND LIE by virtue of the first amendment.
Yer double standards are showing - AGAIN.
That was NOT what that verse was saying! He knows that!
Did I say anything about God NOT being God?
No!
He owns EVERYTHING... If He wanted to toss the whole mess in the
trash can... so be it!
The Fact that does not... proves He cares about His Creation, AND
Wants NOT to destroy it without getting the Repentant out of it first!
Yes God Killed! You remember what the Egyptians did to the Hebrew boys? Then you cry at Him killing the Egyptians first born???
Or cry at Him telling Joshua to wipe out a country?
A country where the set their own children on fir for a made up god???
Abraham had those lands first, God is the Land lord...
He'll place who he wants there!
BIG renovation comming... All the Rot will be removed, and the good made better!
Hope to see you there!
PS I thank Athiests for pointing me towards fox news!
