And people do not neccessarily extract such vileness from any one specific "book". Far from it.

Vengeance and hatred are ugly, ugly attributes, and are easily propagated like the poisons of ignorance that they are.

Therefor, implementing ANY (and I do mean ANY) sort of "coercive" means to manipulate others-Especially to Terrorize them, is WRONG.

Wrong, wrong, sick in the head, wrong.

You mean like telling little kids that if they don't except jesus as their savior and believe in god they will burn forever in a lake of fire in hell? Is that what you mean by "implementing ANY (and I do mean ANY) sort of "coercive" means to manipulate others-Especially to Terrorize them."

Talking about having a good laugh;
An Atheist stood before God and asked; Oh GOD,What is a million years like to you?
God answered; A million years to me is like 1 second.
The Atheist then asked;Oh God , what is a million dollars like to you?
God answered; A million dfollars to me is like 1 pennjy.
The Atheist then asked God; Will you please give me a penny?
God answered, Give me a second to think about it.
Great post!
God Bless you, and yours!:-)

I would like to know where God demanded that anyone be murdered.
Do you know the definition of murder?
Interesting point!
To murder, you have to lay in wait for innocent blood!
God told them up front what NOT to do, just as our judicial system does... Do this... get that!
We did that, and the Grace of God, in Jesus the Christ,
and Faith in Him taking our sins upon Himself!
Case closed!
Thank you Jesus... AMEN!

Threatening people with any sort of "hellisness", be it on earth or elsewhere, as a means of manipulation, ESPECIALLY for immoral motivations, I would considered to be "terrorising", yes.

Is that you stalking me, clicking those little duhm icons on a-n-y-t-h-i-n-g I post (even if I posted FACT, like while looking out my window on a beautiful, clear summer day that the "grass is green and the sky is blue") like some sort of freak Q?
Nt that it even matters (because I could care less) but... that kind obsessive stalker type of stuff, just is NOT right in the head dude.

and just for the REAL records-

That kind of hateful manipulative warped type junk-was NEVER spewed at me.

E-V-E-R.

We were just taught respect of and for others, and that there were certain standards of behavior expected from us...to have some ethics and decency, and to try and obey the civil laws, etc etc.

However, I will agree with you on this.
Mostly because debts are not the only tresspasses (ie:sins) people make in this old world (be they intentional or unintentional).
The Geneva (1599) Bible says it this way, Debts, and Debtors!
One version I read, said Debts, and sins against us!
I don't really care, as I know of what it is saying, and
Mike just wants to hear his voice... even when it's ridiculous!

Lol at God writing the Bible. The Bible was written by men. It says so itself. Those men who wrote it do claim devine inspiration, and they believed God guided them -or we believe that to be so.
Ifvthe bible is taught in schools then so be the holy koran and every othet religious text. Fair is fair.
I'd like to see that too, as too many young fall for the lies od Islam!
God Bless the Children!
