I follow the guidance of the WoW, but I also use my head in other things that is not mentioned in the WoW. Tea and coffee is what it says to abstain from. It doesn't say necessarily why. So I don't know if it is even because of the tannic acid in it. So if my kid needed a medicine that had it, depending on what the known side effects are, I would choose. There are many medications I will not give to my children. It all depends on what it is and what side effects there could be and the period of time that it has been on the market or how proven the side effects are, etc.
I'm pretty sure we had this exact same conversation last year.
I somehow missed this post.
Good to see you did directly answer a question.
And no, the wow does not say why, and I see that as a failure.
The reasons are important. The bible also leaves out the reasons why for so many rules.

I am sure that Pre K found nothing immoral about my invitation after all ,he finds incest between a aprent and a child morally acceptable And I am in no way related to him.
Of course this has to be consensual ,I would not force him to kiss my sweaty armpit unless he wanted to. LOL
I'm convinced he will be drooling when he reads this,,,, Too bad for him , I will not let him kiss my armpit and will deny him that pleasure

Let us compare who may or may not be either crazy or delusional.
To those of us who Believe,this invisible friend is more than just a friend , He is our God ,saviour and creator...The I Am that I Am, who is from everlasting , does not need a creator because He is the source of Life and has life within Himself. It is He who existed before the Universe and brought the universe into eistence.He is alive,intelligent and conscious and has the power to pass those properties on to His creation
There are those who believe this is nonsense.You are among that group.
They don't believe that anything need be eternal,which would mean that before the Universe was created there was nothing,some claim no thing.
If there was nothing before the Universe was created then that would mean that nothing created something out of nothing,,,,,That is crazy and delusional .
Which would also mean that this nothing,which ddid not exist ,somehow had the ability to create Life,consciousness and intelligence,,,That is crazy and delusional,,,
For those who believe that energy is eternal, they also have a dilema.
Energy can not be created by natural means or drstroyed,it can only be converted into matter.. Energy does not posses the properties of life,consciousness or intelligence and not having them or knowing how they work ,supposedly,over billions of years it was able to accomplish these objectives...
So we have an unguided mindless undescribable process accomplishing that which man,wiith his intelligence can neither explain or duplicate...In essence ,the nonlivimg,nonintelligent and nonconscious can accomplish that which the living,conscious and intelligent have been able to do.
There are some canyonesque gaps in their attempts to explain such,, Theories abound,many have failed, They cclaim that it takes time and it may be,according to some,that they need millions and billions of years and that they may never get to the answer.
Millions and billions of years is tantamount to a bottomless pit That is a gap of humongous and unimaginable proportions,,,,,Crazy and delusional
Od course these nonbelievers claim that I just don't understand and that they do understand, however , their explanations, theories ,hypothesis and postilates fail to address the problem , How is it possible that life, consciousness and intelligence can be created by natural means.. That is the question that they avoid dealing with.
Now, if life ,intelligence and consciousness can not be created by natural means, what other option de we have? accidental means,unidentifiable means , we don't know means?
What strikes me as very peculiar is the statement" Life ,intelligence and consciousness do not need a creator.
And let us concentrate on life..
If life does not need a creator , then why are scientists working overtime in order to try and creAte life Assuming that they were to succeed , they would merely be accomplishing that which they say is not needed.. A creator of life...
And that would confirm what believers have been saying all along...We were created by out God.
let us not forget that a simple molecule is much more complicated than anything that man has ever created...
Maybe You can try and provide an answer whwere other have failed or not attempted at all.
atheists like to refer to " the God of the Gaps and refuse to acknowledge the gaps on steroids that they have to contend with.
Thanks for admitting all your reasons to believe in god are of gaps. Steroid gaps, small gaps, it's still a gap you insert your imaginary being into so you can portend to have an answer.

Remember what I said....

Thou shalt not argue thy position by assuming one of its premises is true.

That means you don't get to insert your god of the gaps as it's just an unfounded assumption.

As per usual, you overestimate yourself.

I saw your simplistic time zone trick a mile off but decided to play along with it to see how much of a fool you would make of yourself. You exceeded my expectations.

Remember how you told us Abe tricked your god by playing along with him?

That's exactly what I did with you.

As for the rest of your post?

Remember the golden rule:

Thou shalt not attack the person's character but the argument itself.

You belong to a KJV Onlyism sect that is considered a cult? Maybe the NTCC sect that is also considered a cult?
Have a discussion with du whut, I like to watch it.
"KJV Onlyism sect"?
Not so!
I have been reading the Geneva Bible too, and have yet to see
any major differences in it!
If one was inclined to research it...
you'd find that other than spelling mistakes,
all that is in the Bible (Not Catholic, or Mormon) is pretty much
the same from the original manuscripts!
Now.... some of these newer versions like the NLT (New Lying Translation)
take the power out of God's word!

This is a blatant violation of the 1st amendment. You cannot teach any religion in public schools because it is taxpayer funded. Unless you want to give the scientologists and Buddhists equal time and power of persuasion
No it's not!
That is a Liberal lie, and we're not teaching religion!
Funny how you are not up in arms when your tax dollars
pay for some criminal's sex change, or the wholesale murder
of the unborn!

I wonder....
They ought to put girlymen into women's prison after they have the change...
Very fitting!

<quoted text>Quoting it means nothing if you cannot really answer the questions on it directly. Again you failed to directly address it.
Seems now you imply the Jews made commandments of the rules, and that makes all the difference? I am not really sure what you are saying to tell the truth. What I see looks like massive diversions.

I am asking if you can see the problem of making to many rules, as Jesus said of the Pharisees and it leads to a focus on rules rather than the spirit?

I do not care if you call it a law, commandment or a rule. I do not see it as critical to the issue. If you do, please clarify better.

BTW, Joseph clearly did not need to call it a commandment in order to control. Your claim lacks historical evidence.
Have you read the NT? I'm not claiming the Jews did anything. Jesus spoke on this topic directly. He told them that they added to what was required.
In your case, it sounds like whoever denied you chocolate did the same thing.

I do not see that this is a case of too many rules. I see it a problem with people interpreting incorrectly or adding to the existing rules. I personally like rules. I make up new ones frequently where I work to make sure people do their job right and don't get hurt.

What historical evidence do I lack?
