<quoted text>No, it is a smoke screen to allow preachers in to go around preaching to children and to pressure children. It is a stepping stone to teach the bible as fact.
In the beginning... He made them male, and female!
Is not a vagina made for a penis?
That is a Biblical fact... even if you do not want to believe that!
Fact is fact!
Thanks again for
proving God, and the Bible to be true!
Good day:-)

We would've laughed at THAT...while still maintaning the ability to RESPECT others cultural differences and beliefs (providing they were not harming anyone else, in anyway, of course).
I notice this God fearing Christian has a real affinity for calling people names. "Worm," "dirtbag," et al. Yeah, this is the sort of individual I would want teaching MY kids about the Bible - someone who claims they are tolerant and intelligent, yet is vicious and doesn't even comprehend the common usage of Anno Domini in the Gregorian calendar.

But yes, fact is fact and myth is...well your cult
I notice that YaA doesn't quite get the distinction between "Biblical" and "biological."
Hmmm...
"biblical function"
"biological function"
Maybe there isn't that much difference?

From my experience they are also violent and blood lusting. So many "christians" have stated that I should be; shot, burned at the stake, tied to the back of their truck and dragged, beaten until I defecate myself, etc.....
And from what I see on the news they are hate filled and perverts.
I do not want them talking to my child much less teaching them.
Most colleges have world religion classes, so why do they still try to push their beliefs on to innocent children? Maybe college aged boys and girls are too old for them?

This country was built on industry and personal rights/individual freedom. In no way was this country built on religion, in fact just the opposite as our fore fathers saw fit to protect us from the christian cult.

The New Testament plainly states we are no longer under the law(But the ten commandments are still to be followed ). Romans 6:15 What then? Shall we sin because we are not under the law ? NO.
bible.cc/romans/6-15.htmKing James Bible (Cambridge Ed.) What then? shall we ... Weymouth New Testament Are we therefore to sin because we are no longer under the authority of Law, but under grace? No, indeed!.... Romans Chapter 6 Verse 15. Alphabetical:...
Jesus rebuked many things the followers of the old bible did. He showed them to be kind and filled with love for everyone. As previously stated by someone,Jesus stopped the stoning of the woman caught in adultery. Jesus rebuked them for allowing divorce (except that your spouse committed adultery ,Jesus told Peter to put away his sword,and Jesus then restored and put back the ear of the man (who came to kill Jesus ). I think,
since Jesus told them that these things were not be done,it proves (at least to me ) that there were other instances where the Jews did not always do what god wanted.
I may be wrong ,but I follow more so the New Testament (I could do better on this to ,I am sure !) Jesus shows great LOVE ,where as the old testament has a lot of killing. I am no longer under the old law ,but my faith is in Jesus,who wants us to love,not stone,not kill.

Being related (I suppose so,that I may well be ,since my grandfather was a Jew)I am so glad that I accept Jesus as my savor ,where as the Jews who were so sit in their old beliefs rejected HIM. And actually cried crucify Jesus .So we can see from this they chose not believe in Jesus.(so again this shows me that everything the Jews did was not of God. ( Or at the very least ,held a lot hate and bitterness )

While I do not believe that there is a god or jesus.
It is evident that the god of the old testament not being acceptable to people a NEW god was created in your jesus.
If you dismiss the god part for a moment, if you believe that people should be kind and helpful to others, that evil is when some one harms another, i agree with you. But if, IF, it is about elevating yourself above others, defaming others just to elevate yourself, social status, controlling others than I am against you.
Fair enough?

God probably laughs at all of us,trying to" Disprove God" is as absurd as scientist proving how the earth was made. They say it is billions of years old,yet man in his own imagined infallible egoist way,thinks he can figure it all out! What E G O and self-righteousness!
Who & what books are available to prove any of this insanity of evolution? ;The books would need to be billions of years old !
Either believe in God, or admit that,"We do not believe in God,but we have no idea how everything was created !"
You have a 3rd answer ? Let's hear it.

Your faith is an inspiration to those who believe:and very much needed in this world of so many turning from faith in God. Thank you so much for sharing especially on how God answered your prayer at a critical time. I can relate to this ,it brings back memories of a time when God answered my prayer when nothing or no one could help.Jesus did. Praise unto our Lord Jesus forever brother. Love & prayers Friend
When we share our faith with others,who also believe,our faith is strenghthened,due to the fact that,we came to believe in God and Christ and to attain unto faith,by employing the same teachings contained in the Bible,thereby confirming their validity.
We have tried it,we have tested it and found it to be true AND neither Science or human wisdom is capable of invalidating that which we have experienced and believe in
As you have stated"Praise unto our Lord Jesus forever"
God Bless you,in the name of Jesus

No the opposite my friend Jesus wants us to humble :The phrase originates from the Sermon on the Mount in the New Testament. In the Gospel of Matthew, an alternative for "an eye for an eye" is given by Jesus:
38 ¶ Ye have heard that it hath been said, An eye for an eye, and a tooth for a tooth:
39 But I say unto you, That ye resist not evil: but whosoever shall smite thee on thy right cheek, turn to him the other also.
40 And if any man will sue thee at the law, and take away thy coat, let him have thy cloke also.
41 And whosoever shall compel thee to go a mile, go with him twain.
42 Give to him that asketh thee, and from him that would borrow of thee turn not thou away.
—Matthew 5:38–5:42 KJV
In the Sermon on the Plain[1] in the Gospel of Luke, as part of his command to "love your enemies", Jesus says:
27 ¶ But I say unto you which hear, Love your enemies, do good to them which hate you,
28 Bless them that curse you, and pray for them which despitefully use you.
29 And unto him that smiteth thee on the one cheek offer also the other; and him that taketh away thy cloke forbid not to take thy coat also.
30 Give to every man that asketh of thee; and of him that taketh away thy goods ask them not again.
31 And as ye would that men should do to you, do ye also to them likewise.
—Luke 6:27–31 KJV

The christian cult does this all of the time. I have told people that want to preach at me that I do not believe in the bible and do not want to be preached at so they nag and preach harder until I wear my sigle of Baphomet than they condemn me because I do not follow their cult
Again you err;
your 2 previous allegations,you were unable to substantiate.
Your new allegation,that,I have argued in favor of the Bible being taught in public schools,is also wrong AND you provide no evidence to support that allegation.
I can only assume that,because of your inability to refute the basis for my faith,you need to resort to try and discredit me by attributing to me,things I never said.
That old deceptive strategy does not work.The Pharissees tried the same strategy with Jesus.
Jesus healed a blind man,whom.many witnesses knew to have been blind.The Pharissees,could not deny that Jesus had restored the sight of one blind from birth.So,they tried to discredit him by attributing his powers to sorcery and the devil,without providing any evidence to support those allegations.
Jesus never attributed his powers to sorcery or the devil,He claimed his powers came from the Father.

Better yet why didn't an all knowing, all powerful God write all his rules down on some light weight indestructible non erasable or editable note pads....

So why does a penis fit into a goat? I saw pictures.... And why do vaginas fit a wide range of household items and small ponies... Again, I saw pictures...

When WE,"believers",say it,it is based on the fact that,WE,have experienced it.Thereby,we are able to attest to it's validity.

Unbelievers,on the other hand,since they neither understand,nor know how Faith ans belief in God brings about the results and changes that we have experienced,are the least qualified to try and explain the basis for our beliefs.
You know nothing about the process,you understand nothing about the process,thereby you are totally unqualified to opine on something you knw nothing about

So then we should follow anyone that talks to invisible people that hear voices in their heads that tell them to do stuff and get tingles down their legs.... I know where there is a building full full to the brim with such people, albeit they are kept lock into rooms with limited access to sharp objects....

You'd like to think that wouldn't you? The problem with your post here...well, one problem with your post here is the fact that almost every "unbeliever" is a former "believer". So, we're very well qualified to opine on this subject.
