I think the old ones should stay, as a testament to what our old ways of thought were. It is historical.
I do too, and I agree, they do speak volumes about the history of our nation.
Some of us find much merit in their common sense words of decency and ethics, for those who choose to acknowledge them anyway.

I for one would not want to exist, or be any part of anything that exists at such sub-par, sub-human, ignorant and intolerant level as to disrespect any thing even similar, so callously, as displayed by the destroyers of the Bimyian Statues, for example. Not ever.

Riddle me this priest how many commandments are there?
That would be according to whom you speak to, how much they've actually "read" in their lives, and then which ones they personally consider "applicable".:-)

Lmao, "reasoning", that and belief, meltdown.
You appear to be having one, in that the whole world will never just see things "your way". Might as well get used to it, that'll never happen.

That doesn't "entitle" you to disrespect others based upon beliefs they may or may not have though, because in doing so, you just put yourself at the same scummy, low life, inhumane level as terrorist, and that sure is NOT anything to be proud of. Not at all.

There is a BB theory, quite an established one.

Just some people have no issue with it, an d believe that it has merit-as well as the Bible, and that the two CAN and often DO, go right hand in hand, as in no need whatsoever to NOT think that BOTH bring their own contributions to humankind, on the "origins" and evolutions of the world and it's inhabitants as we know it.
Why some of us even find the BS that it has to be "either" the BB or Creationism, utterly contemptible, severely lacking and devoid of much of any logic at all.

really? where does the air come from? lmao for one the oxygen is a by product of photosynthesis and thats all we need from the air to survive. and if u claim something exist the proof is on u. i can say unicorns are real but no one believes it cuz i cant prove it. the same with santa claus and the easter bunny and all that so by your reasoning they are all real cuz i bet u cant prove any of those are not real. u cant prove something when there is zero evidence from either side. zero evidence means the default is it doesnt exist so if u want us to believe it does exist get some evidence. i apologize for your god since he cant seem to make any legit evidence unless a man does it for him. the same as the other beings i mentioned in this thread. the burden of proof is on u the believer but u know u cant prove it so u try to change the way that all other things in life work just to fit your little fantasy. when your god gets all this power u claim maybe he can prove he exist but from the looks of it i think maybe he dont have the power to prove it cuz he doesnt exist.
Why do you think the Bible is "just" about "a" God? I find that concept quite limited of any actual, real "thought".

And no, I do not think that homosexuality will ever be acceptable to God, nor will His doctrine change on this. Even if society continues to find it more and more acceptable, I do not believe God will.
I have no problem with people that are gay. I have several friends and classmates that are gay, and we have great conversations about the topic. But I can't approve of the act itself so we do not talk about the details of their sex lives, but then again, I don't do that with my straight friends either.
You don't think gays will ever be acceptable to your God, but you don't have a problem with gays.

You have some gay friends.

"Some of my best friends are black, but...."

"Some of my best friends are women, but..."

"Some of my best friends are Mexican, but..."

"Some of my best friends are Jewish, but..."

See the pattern?

No, of course not, that's why I said " for example". This was a singular example.
I don't think it is a "choice" in most cases. Do you remember making the "choice" to like math or not? Doubtful.
Yes, I have answered. You just didn't accept the answer. I believe in all truth that can be verified by the Holy Ghost. However, every truth in the Bible does not occupy my mind all the time. For example, great detail was written about the interior of the tabernacle that Moses was commanded to construct. But it isn't really relevant to me right now. I think it is neat to read, but it doesn't really pertain to me in my daily life. It certainly shows me that God cares about detail, which cements my belief that one must do much more than simple say "I believe in Jesus Christ", and they will be saved.
I accept your answer but that does not mean I must agree it is a full answer or a good answer.
You have yet to say a single word about the prophets of the old testament possibly being wrong as Brigham was wrong? What is taking you so long to answer this question and others?

Did you make a conscious choice to like girls? I sure did not, and am quite sure liking girls is just something I am programed for. I have zero sexual desire for men and can certainly understand why it is hard to understand some men are attracted to men, as I find it hard to understand. Thus it is extremely likely prophets of old also did not understand, thus they condemned it and claimed god did also. But I am asking why would someone be so sure the prophets were not wrong here? How can one know god actually spoke to these prophets? Why would you have such trust in these men you already claim can be flawed. Flawed men lie and distort. Why would you assume they are not flawed in what they claim a god wants?
Again, you have yet to address this question I have asked many times.

Here we are, America, deficited to the hilt, laughable if they weren't so patheTic, at the LACK of any manageable "budgets", people with no healthcare, and not enough means to afford ridiculous free market prices, added to that now, a backwards, Tax, Fine and ROB the Honest working class people some more bullchit bill- worthy at this point, only of lining birdcages with, and this is what has been focus "issues" in DC.

Set up an auto-marry-whatever site out of Vegas-$39.95, on-screen confetti and randuhm weddink muzac provided. Spawrkul spawrkul, gwiiter, gwitter.

Maybe THEN, this nation can grow some NON-dysfunctional braincells again, and get on with the business it's SUPPOSED to be tending to, rather than being mired in the gutter level idiocracy that's been mired in for the past few years.

Revelation has no place in the New Testament and shouldn't have been included.
A fool is wise,in his own eyes.Now,we have the Atheists claiming that they are eminently qualified to determine what books should be contained in The New Testament.

Why do think Revelations has no place in the New Testament? Where else would such a chapter be placed chroniLogically?
A reasonable question. There isn't any evidence that John of Patmos was John the Apostle. Revelation bears no resemblance to the Gospel of John. There isn't any reasonable expectation that Rev. was divinely inspired or that John of Patmos even laid eyes on Jesus. There were many other writings in circulation by the third century that were actually held to be eyewitness accounts, and yet not only were those not included in the canonized Bible, many were deemed by the Councils to be false, irrelevant or sacrilegious and were ordered to be systematically destroyed. Revelation, on the other hand was a terrific tool to reinforce the punishment/reward doctrine of the church and as such has become indispensable. That is the only "chroniLogical" reason for its inclusion and longevity.
