The danger in teaching the Bible is that this book has the power to create faith even in an atheist. If it is allowed to be taught there is a strong possibility someone could be converted to Jesus Christ. Under the current world views is it possible to allow such a powerful tool for good to be taught in public schools and that before the young minds of the future?
Better to listen to the new Pope than to read the Bible. The Pope is nicer than God even.
and the Pope is real.

God's not partial he just kills them all especially young,old and helpless ones.
that is one version of God, from right wing extremists. it seems that some of the folks on here are not quite that horrible in their beliefs and in their views about the God they believe in. And in the real world there are other believers in a version of God that is much nicer than what we generally see on topix. They just seem to be much more quiet. The rightwing extremists in politics and religion are the noisy ones now, unfortunately the media augments their voices.

You have to have courage, to be obedient to God. Most people don't even like the word obedience used in life.
I do not think you can prove that there is a true statement about God or Satan. It is all opinion, including whether they exist. It is tough enough to be an effective kind person, but it is worth it. To be obedient to a lot of nonsense that some fool claims is God's word can be easier in some cases, or more difficult in other cases, than being a kind person. But being kind is better than being mean and claiming God told you to be mean. The rightwing extremists are the ones who prefer being nasty and claiming to obey God. Just look at the gOP legislative record everywhere - stealing food, votes, and health care from poor people. They are trying to get votes from socalled Christians!

i agree with u 100% about treating ppl all equal but from what u say here it is easy to see u are no follower of the god of the Old or New Testament becuz both books endorse slavery of all races except Jewish unless u are Jewish yourself then u can only enslave a fellow jew for a certain amount of yrs but all other races can be slaves til they die. your last sentence there proves that u think god of the holy bible is irrational, illogical and off in the head and once again i agree 100% with that statement as well.

Christians who cry out, "It's wrong to judge," are ignoring the context of the passage (Matt. 7:1-2), which does not forbid judging, but instead insists on judgment according to God's word. In addition, a judgmental criticism of judgment is self-refuting.
Not sure about the rest of you guys, but exchanging opinions and comments with a female that has intelligence is a nice change from Sista's baby talking, half-capitalized words and stupid remarks

Do you judge what lane to drive in,
What charities to give to,
What politician to vote for,
Not to use a rapist for your babysitter?
See... you Judge all the time!
When God says not to do evil... we can Judge what is evil
because God gave us a book to KNOW what His Judgments are,
and to MAKE Righteous Judgments!

God's holy spirit didn't compel Solomon from hanging around whores and raping young virgins and taking them as wives. I have to give it to Solomon for writing a book to make him look holier than thou like some memorial countries make for mass murders to look good.
Maybe Solomon just had a scribe write it and make it look good to spare the life of the scribe and his family from a burn sacrifice to God. Possible he just killed the scribe anyway to keep him quite.

that is not true. u dont have a choice in this matter. ill explain it this way. say i pull a gun on u and tell u to give me your money, dont make me shoot u. now do u really have a choice about whether i get your money or not? u can say yes but no one is gonna choice to get shot and killed just as no one is gonna choice to go to hell. would u also say it is your fault or my fault if u get killed becuz u wouldnt give me your money. i gave u a choice to live but u didnt want it if u choice not to give me the money.
for your scenario i will say i take the door to heaven and eternal life but at the same time i am gonna say i dont believe in god. now if im sent to hell by this god then i didnt really have the choice myself to start with. it was his all along.
that style of choice is more like a bully if u ask me than a loving god.
Oh no!
He's proven His existence, NONE can claim they did not know!
You just didn't want to know Him, or believe!
That would be like me saying... I don't believe you have a gun...
even while it's IN MY FACE!
God is right before you, but you'd rather be BLINDED by people
like Dawkins... Guess who Dawkins works for???
