Scar and blood that wasn't there 2 days prior doesn't seem subjective to me.

<quoted text>So Jesus was a lesser God or a god as Jehovah's witness believe also.

This bible verse contradicts what you are saying. Why?

Isaiah 45:5

I am the LORD, and there is no other; apart from me there is no God.

Isaiah 44:6
"This is what the LORD says-- Israel's King and Redeemer, the LORD Almighty: I am the first and I am the last; apart from me there is no God.
To us, He is our God and mediator with the Father.
Psalms 82:6
I have said, Ye are gods; and all of you are children of the most High.

John 10:34
Jesus answered them, Is it not written in your law, I said, Ye are gods?

Notice Jesus said that He said what was in their law. Jesus is the God of the Old Testament.
And Jesus made it very clear that He was subject to the Father. He prayed to the Father. He told us that He could do nothing that He didn't see the Father do. But to us, He is everything.

<quoted text>Without getting into an exposition of Scripture, the Bible is clear that the Mosaic Covenant (in which the laws you referenced are found) has been replaced by the New Covenant. While there are some similarities between the two covenants, this is not one of them. The Law of Moses was a contract between God and Israel to govern their life in the land of Canaan, both spiritually and politically (a theocratic kingdom). The New Covenant serves an entirely different purpose. The New Covenant governs our spirituality, not our politics. While the New Testament is clear that God has ordained human government to punish evil and commend the good (Romans 13:1-7) it does not speak to how that punishment ought to be carried out for particular moral crimes, or the degree of punishment. It would seem that those decisions are given to the state. It is clear, however, that under the New Covenant sins are not punished in the same way they were under the Mosaic Covenant because the New Covenant is a spiritual, not a political-social covenant.

It would be a mistake, then, to say that Christians are not obeying their own Scripture, or being arbitrary in what parts of the Bible they keep. Each passage of Scripture must be evaluated within its historical and covenantal context, and be applied appropriately. Not all commands in Scripture apply equally for all people and all times (but are specific to a covenant), whereas others do. For example, while I am not obligated to build an ark, I am obligated to abstain from murder.Christians are not ignoring those Old Testament passages, but are properly interpreting them within their context and applying them appropriately.
Nice post

<quoted text>All religions do. The JWs don't allow premarital sex at all, masturbation is a no no and oral will get you in trouble.

There's a Mormon on TV for murder, if one will do that then I'm sure another one will show her temple garments. I goofed around with a girl one time that had a sweet German accent and soon after we met she told me she was Amish and her conscience wouldn't allow her to see me anymore. Usually the stricter the parents, the more reason for them to rebel the first chance they get. That's my experience on it anyway.

Sex is a powerful thing. Kind of makes you wonder about free will when some of us have a sex drive of a bull elephant and everything we want to do is a sin. Doesn't seem fair to burden people with a sex drive if you punish them for using it.
Just because you CAN do something, doesn't mean you should though.

You need to get some new material for your rants.
They are getting repetitious and monotonous.
The fact that most of the time you simply laugh like a lunatic shows that, well.... you are a lunatic.
Jumping up and down shouting "god is real, he talks to me" convinces no one.

This is highly insulting. You don't get it. You won't get it. You are not open to the possibility of being wrong, nor of others being right and not sharing your lack of ability to reason.
When it comes to God's existence... you, and every other atheist is Wrong!

<quoted text>Because when I leave this life I want to spend eternity in Heaven, not hell. These are not scare tactics. They are warnings for your benefit. Like a tornado warning. The sirens sound scary but it is to give you a chance to get to safety. It is coming. If you can honestly say you have intelligence, look at the way things are these days and still say the end of this world is not imminent then you are not as smart as you think you are. We are not talking about swamp rats, we are talking about you and me. If hell is real, do you want to go there? People don't think an earthquake will happen but they still buy insurance for some reason. That just in case thing.

Great point. The Bible actually does require evidence. Consider this verse.
1 John 4:1
Dear friends, do not believe every spirit, but test the spirits to see whether they are from God, because many false prophets have gone out into the world.
You believe, because you have seen me.... Blessed are those that believe, and have not seen!
Of course... If you believe in your heart... you will have your proof!
It's funny that way!

The bible says no one can see God and yet live, Thomas saw Jesus. During the time of Jesus many saw him and lived,why?
Geeesh!
Do you not understand anything?
God is a spirit... just like the one you have IN you... only better!
Christ was God's spirit (Holy spirit) in the Human form of Christ!
You must be born again of His spirit to escape death of the spirit!
Hope that helps
