U get funnier and funnier. But the scripture does say and I'm paraphrasing,(I gave the actual verse on this post somewhere) that if you don't KNOW the FATHER YOU WILL NOT UNDERSTAND the SCRIPTURES.. I guess that's the why behind you sounding so CRAZY! Lol. Well , maybe
Psalm 137:9

King James Version (KJV)


9 Happy shall he be, that taketh and dasheth thy little ones against the stones.
That is plain to see
When a man sells his daughter as a slave, she will not be freed at the end of six years as the men are. If she does not please the man who bought her, he may allow her to be bought back again. But he is not allowed to sell her to foreigners, since he is the one who broke the contract with her. And if the slave girl's owner arranges for her to marry his son, he may no longer treat her as a slave girl, but he must treat her as his daughter. If he himself marries her and then takes another wife, he may not reduce her food or clothing or fail to sleep with her as his wife. If he fails in any of these three ways, she may leave as a free woman without making any payment.(Exodus 21:7-11 NLT)
Do you have trouble understanding this one?
Leviticus 1 (New International Version)

The Burnt Offering

1 The LORD called to Moses and spoke to him from the Tent of Meeting. He said, 2 “Speak to the Israelites and say to them:‘When any of you brings an offering to the LORD, bring as your offering an animal from either the herd or the flock.
3 ”‘If the offering is a burnt offering from the herd, he is to offer a male without defect. He must present it at the entrance to the Tent of Meeting so that it will be acceptable to the LORD. 4 He is to lay his hand on the head of the burnt offering, and it will be accepted on his behalf to make atonement for him. 5 He is to slaughter the young bull before the LORD, and then Aaron’s sons the priests shall bring the blood and sprinkle it against the altar on all sides at the entrance to the Tent of Meeting. 6 He is to skin the burnt offering and cut it into pieces. 7 The sons of Aaron the priest are to put fire on the altar and arrange wood on the fire. 8 Then Aaron’s sons the priests shall arrange the pieces, including the head and the fat, on the burning wood that is on the altar. 9 He is to wash the inner parts and the legs with water, and the priest is to burn all of it on the altar. It is a burnt offering, an offering made by fire, an aroma pleasing to the LORD.

10 ”‘If the offering is a burnt offering from the flock, from either the sheep or the goats, he is to offer a male without defect. 11 He is to slaughter it at the north side of the altar before the LORD, and Aaron’s sons the priests shall sprinkle its blood against the altar on all sides. 12 He is to cut it into pieces, and the priest shall arrange them, including the head and the fat, on the burning wood that is on the altar. 13 He is to wash the inner parts and the legs with water, and the priest is to bring all of it and burn it on the altar. It is a burnt offering, an offering made by fire, an aroma pleasing to the LORD.

14 ”‘If the offering to the LORD is a burnt offering of birds, he is to offer a dove or a young pigeon. 15 The priest shall bring it to the altar, wring off the head and burn it on the altar; its blood shall be drained out on the side of the altar. 16 He is to remove the crop with its contents and throw it to the east side of the altar, where the ashes are. 17 He shall tear it open by the wings, not severing it completely, and then the priest shall burn it on the wood that is on the fire on the altar. It is a burnt offering, an offering made by fire, an aroma pleasing to the LORD.

You have never given an answer, you dodge questions make vague unrelated comments and say "its in the bible" But you never answer a question. I think it is because you know that the bible is not real

Kind of pathetic to watch some of 'em squirm in their own derangement sometimes (not all, because any RATIONAL, logocal SANE person would realize, not ALL atheists are patheTic) isn't it.
Just wish the (same) wouldn't spread their plague of blackened misery onto others!!

Good telling them evil christians!
It's a personal "Constitutional freedom OF" thing... NOT an ego tripping, power questing "control-freakish" thing, no matter which denominational rail post, or fence side, anyone sits upon.

'Cause I don't believe ALL "Christians" are "evil" either...because in MY opinion, to think such would be representative of T-total ignorance.
Kinda like nothing more than low level, animalisTic "herd pack" MENTALity.
That's the kind of stuff that a lot of the darker moments of many of the "histronics and hysteria" times of history are comprised of.

Did you know...before Science correctly identified tuberculosis, people used to think that people afflicted with it were possessed by vampires?
Unbelievable what (non) remedies were practiced in efforts to "cure" the afflicted of such,(non)cures that often just made the spread of the disease even worse.
Classic example of "ignorance 101"...tuberculosis (aka "consumption")in the 1700's.

but if you're saying people were often better off with just plain old aspirin and some common, realistic horse sense sometimes, than what the choices they have thrown in their faces now a days by the consumptive, coniving, care-less-at-times market sof big pharma carnical barkers and snake oil hawkers, I would (ugh) have to agree with you..a little anyway.

No. It wasn't built on "In God We Trust." That was a kneejerk that came later. WTF? Did you flunk out of American History 102?
As aptly as the Constitutional was written, don't you think that if they (the Founding Fathers) intended to write "in the year of our potus 17 hundred blablahblah"...they would've?
But NO, that is NOT what they wrote-they wrote and signed names to-

..."done in Convention by the Unanimous Consent of the States present the Seventeenth Day of September in the Year of our Lord one thousand seven hundred and Eighty seven and of the Independance of the United States of America the Twelfth In witness whereof We have hereunto subscribed our Names,....."

Geez, pull your fingers out yer ears and from your nose will ya please.

It's my answer lol. Only answer. Your challenge that you don't agree. I believe every word and I'm HAPPY JOYFUL PEACEFUL even when the world crashes around me. You as well?
Here's the thing. He presented you with a classic Christian dilemma called The Problem of Evil. Philosophers and theologians have wrestled this one for thousands of years with no satisfying answer. So there is no way you can possibly give him a satisfying answer.

But you didn't even give him an answer. You dodged the question.

Let's put the question into some context:

You already said God is basically love. Do you also believe that God is all powerful?

If so, consider this story from India:

http://www.guardian.co.uk/world/2013/mar/03/i...

"But it was two more days before a farmer found their bodies floating in the dark water at the bottom of a deep well in a corner of a paddyfield one mile from their home.

Even then, police initially treated the deaths as an accident. It was not until villagers started blocking the highway in protest that they started to pay attention. Two days later, the results of the postmortem examination came through and the story exploded. The girls had been raped and murdered, the report said."

So here is a case where three little girls were raped, murdered, and tossed down a well.

Do you think God knew this was happening? If so, what reason can you think of for God to allow it to happen?

You already said God is all loving. Is rape and murder a sign of love?

If it is a matter of free will and the murderers were exercising their free will to rape and kill, then how did the free will of the children come into play? They were free to be terrified, in pain, and finally succumb to the dark, cold waters of a deep well?

You can believe in God all day long but this bullsh*t about God being a "loving" deity is just offensive in the face of crimes like this.

Please READ the Constitution.

Pay close attention when you get to the very last paragraph-just before the many signatures of the Founding Fathers.

Ever read Jefferson's letter to the Danbury Baptists?

If he only knew then, the outcome and cause and effect of socialism abused, over used and gone awry, he would've a surtax right then and there!!!!!!

What? You mean to say that Big Pharma has bought and paid for FDA officials and legislators? Man, am I disillusioned. Whoda thunk that would be possible? I thought the reason Purdue was allowed to make excessive quantities of OxyContin was for the public good - maybe to take some of the flack off of the other "opiate of the masses."

Both 1 and 2 involve faith. I fully admit that. I have said before I believe that's one of the main reasons we are on this earth, to have our faith tested. With proof, there is no room for faith.
How about this: for those that have faith in God, and believe the Bible to be the word of God, why can't there be other records from other groups of people that Jesus visited when He told us he was leaving to tend to other sheep?
And as for 1. That was the purpose of the witnesses of the Book of Mormon. If you read the testimonies of the people that wrote what they saw, they did so to say that they saw and handled the gold plates and witnessed the angel Moroni that brought it forth.
Again I realize faith is required because one could argue that these men were all in cahoots. Though it isn't plausible to me that these men would risk their lives to do all of this, lose everything they had and still die poor.
Some of them even got mad at Joseph at some point and turned away from him but never denounced the BOM and what they said they witnessed.
I only accept truth claims based on evidence and reason. I have no interest in faith.

Think about what you just said. You know it requires faith. You believe evidence undermines faith. You've chosen one story out of thousands to put your faith in. Isn't that a little bit silly?

Regarding Smith, the witnesses are not exactly reliable. They were family, friends, and business partners. And they were not exactly critical thinkers either. They did not in fact see much of anything they claimed to see.

I realize that doesn't sit well with the Mormon version, which is essentially a religious version that promotes the Prophet's magical powers. But reality has no interest in what the LDS wants you to believe, only in what actually seems to be the case.

Who has the golden tablets now, anyway?

Yeah, no one should have to be miserable when there's no need to be, and that guy Jesus really seemed like a pretty good guy.
