I think God's word is infallible, but the bible itself has a few inconsequential errors in it. It's consistent in its message of salvation, though. God loves everyone and will forgive any sin except blasphemy against the Holy Spirit. Concerning sexual conduct, any relations outside of marriage between one man and one woman is wrong. Homosexual relations are unnatural and an abomination.In Leviticus, it tells us that gays are evil. I don't believe in the Bible one bit, as only inbred Tea Bagging morons would have to be told it is wrong to kill. How are your personal views when it comes to gays, in comparison with the "infallible word of God"?

I'm no biblical scholar, but I'm not aware that the bible specifically defines marriage as restricted exclusively to the union of one man and one woman.
Even if it did, so what? I'm not aware that the US Constitution specifically defers to the bible as its ultimate moral authority, nor that it specifically defines marriage as restricted exclusively to the union of one man and one woman.
People who cite the Leviticus "abomination" reference do so without the benefit/disadvantage of knowing who wrote/translated Leviticus or any reasonable understanding of its actual relevance, but only because it seems to support their deeply held prejudiced belief.
Leviticus schmvidicus. Does anyone really believe that god wrote the bible? If so, why would he/she bother do that?

It does, but that chapter starts out by saying that it's best if men don't touch women at all...
1 Corinthians 7:1-2
King James Version (KJV)
1 Now concerning the things whereof ye wrote unto me: It is good for a man not to touch a woman.
2 Nevertheless, to avoid fornication, let every man have his own wife, and let every woman have her own husband.
And they should realize that same book of the Bible states that eating shrimp is also an "abomination":
King James Version (KJV)
9 These shall ye eat of all that are in the waters: whatsoever hath fins and scales in the waters, in the seas, and in the rivers, them shall ye eat.
10 And all that have not fins and scales in the seas, and in the rivers, of all that move in the waters, and of any living thing which is in the waters, they shall be an abomination unto you:
11 They shall be even an abomination unto you; ye shall not eat of their flesh, but ye shall have their carcases in abomination.
12 Whatsoever hath no fins nor scales in the waters, that shall be an abomination unto you.

scum like you needs to lay in the bed you made all by yourself.
Your man child POTUS just ended your fantasy of free healthcare, and no sane employer will ever hire useless trash like you.
You have been banished by your own actions to a life of misery and poverty.
Hunting season is tagging and pushing you out front and center for others to view where their stolen income is being wasted.
why don't you step and fetch your own money, house, food, healthcare, utility bills, education, transportation etc.?
The season has begun to eliminate you and like ilk from the taxpayers pockets, and you can't do a thing to stop it.
January 2015 brings out the eraser that ends your freeloading days.
You are a terrorist, not a real american. If you were a real american you would not need a community organizer to make your bed and feed you.
manure can be spread on fields as fertilizer, I can't see you as any value for anything.
People like you demand laws to protect you from normal people, and I say you become normal or be banished.

above is advice from an uneducated moron drunk on liberal kook aide.
taping the mouth shut of such morons is best for society.
#25288 Feb 12, 2014
That's just precious. Cletus McOnetooth actually thinks he's a normal person. Looks like him and Cletus McTeaTard(mutt) need to hook up and compare teabagging notes. They're both knowledgeable and expert recipients of the practice.
And just who made your bed and fed you? Oh that's right, the same teacher you had an affair with. Just don't struggle to hard reading those big words, that head is already screwed up enough.
#25289 Feb 12, 2014
You still on your Buffalo Bill/Silence of the Lambs "taping people's mouths" shut kick? I didn't read it, but I like your 3 paragraph tap dance you had to do, to squirm out of your public death threats...again.
Anyway, back to the folks who lost 2 presidential elections in a row, have the GOP backing away from you like you guys were chimps throwing feces, have our current and more popular Pope spanking you for your obvious greedy agendas, telling us how you will rise again and establish the all white Mayberry for crude oil Jesus vision that America never was. You lose little parking lot fisherman. You and yours are just a sad little piece of hasbeen fluff, crying in the rear view mirror of this great nation, as you get smaller and smaller and smaller...

Ooooh lookie. Tax time is right around the corner. I can't wait. My favorite time of the year. Better pay them taxes real purdy' like. In fact, give until it hurts while us tax paying, hard working REAL Americans laugh in your treasonous faces.

And you are your parent's garbage, seeing you haven't accomplished anything on your own in life. Get it right, lil' Gims Gims.
#25292 Feb 12, 2014
My favorite part of the Bible, is in Matthew, where Jesus tells his disciples that they will see the end of the world within their lifetime. That kookie little water walking zombie lied to them. Good thing he's only as real as Santa Claus. Still though, he gives the greedy a good excuse to cash in on future generations and destroy the environment with their greed. "We don't need to protect the environment, the second coming is at hand" James Watt-In charge of our natural resources under Reagan. I forget. Was that before or after Al Gore? Ahhh ha ha ha ha ha!

The psychophrenia is strong in this one.
#25294 Feb 12, 2014
Thank you for your informative response to my post. I understand how some christians can squeeze the "one man, one woman" rule out of Corinthians 7:1, but it addresses the issue of excluding other types of gender specific liaison only inferentially through non-inclusion.You also identified some babblical contradictions with which I was not familiar.
I would like to recommend that Corinthians be amended to include the act of eating sushi to the list of ungodly abominations, perhaps in the form of "It is good for woman to cook fishes from the waters of the seas and the rivers thoroughly before she serves them to her husband without permitting him to touch her gratuitously."

and above is the best the puke can do to spin away his uselessness.
PS: At 52 I have never had a cavity, and ZERO fillings. I also have had dental insurance my entire life. I see the dentist twice a year. My smile is important for customers to see, so dental hygiene is a critical element in my success. My teeth are perfect, and bleached yearly. I must dress for success always, because you don't get a 2nd chance at making a 1st impression. By my preparing myself at all times to make good 1st impressions, I am Cletus McTeaTard.
Cletus McTeaTard does not require a minimum wage, and hasn't for over 30 years. I would bet Cletus gives more money to charity each month than woo boy pays out for entire months bills.
Woo Boy does not like Cletus because he thinks I did not build that. It was the lucky sperm club.
Woo Boy is entitled to my life I earned.

It's in Genesis (when God created Eve), and Jesus talked about it in Matthew 19:4-6 ...
"Haven’t you read,”[Jesus] replied,“that at the beginning the Creator ‘made them male and female,’ 5 and said,‘For this reason a man will leave his father and mother and be united to his wife, and the two will become one flesh’? 6 So they are no longer two, but one flesh. Therefore what God has joined together, let no one separate.”
Each society needs to make its laws based on what its people believe are best. Up to this point, our society has been guided more by Christian values. And as a result, we have become the most powerful, prosperous nation on earth.
In recent decades, we've begun to spurn Christian values and a recognition of God, and we've looked to ourselves for wisdom. As a result, we have unborn children being murdered by the hundreds of thousands, a breakdown of the family, high unwed pregnancy rates, rampant STDs, rampant drug use, high unemployment, more govt dependency, and an unsustainable debt. So, even though we have the freedom to choose our own path separate from God, we need to recognize that there will be consequences for it.
Again, we have present-day evidence that homosexuality is an abomination. As I discussed in another thread, AIDS is a predominately-homosexual disease. The govt, which is not allowed to discriminate, won't permit men who have had sex with men (even once) since 1977, to donate blood. From the CDC website:
"A history of male-to-male sex is associated with an increased risk for exposure to and transmission of certain infectious diseases, including HIV, the virus that causes AIDS. Men who have had sex with other men represent approximately 2% of the US population, yet are the population most severely affected by HIV. In 2010, MSM accounted for at least 61% of all new HIV infections in the U.S. and an estimated 77% of diagnosed HIV infections among males were attributed to male-to-male sexual contact. Between 2008 and 2010, the estimated overall incidence of HIV was stable in the U.S. However the incidence in MSM increased 12%, while it decreased in other populations. The largest increase was a 22% increase in MSM aged 13 to 24 years. Since younger individuals are more likely to donate blood, the implications of this increase in incidence need to be further evaluated."
So, like I said, we're free to make laws based on what we feel is right, but there will eventually be a price to pay.
God didn't write the bible. The books are compiled of letters, poems, historical accounts, prophecies, and songs that were written by men over the course of a couple thousand years. It's purpose is to teach the story of salvation and God's plan for us, and to give insight and inspiration. The bible is a helper, but it was never intended to take the place of a personal relationship with God and the everyday insight that he can give. He is bigger than a book.
#25297 Feb 12, 2014
you are killing yourself with your own stupidity, and me with laughter.
and yes...when you come to confiscate guns or force me to give you anything.....please bring lots of buddies marching in formation. Saves ammo.
I am crying about what is in front of society today, and you.
Your above rant to any normal being makes them shake their head in disgust.
Absolutely without doubt you were not part of what made America beautiful.
People by the millions ran away to immigrate here running from people like you.
You belong to a small fringe group, and have a very bleak future.
#25298 Feb 12, 2014
You are no scholar for sure, and proved that with your 1st sentence.
please study......the answer is there.
#25299 Feb 12, 2014
That was Paul's opinion. He lived his life in total devotion to God, and that worked for him. That's not right for everyone, though. Paul also said that each person should work out his own salvation with fear and trembling. What's alright for one person isn't always beneficial to another. That's why a relationship with God is so important.
As I said in my last post, God is bigger than a book. There are laws against certain behaviors in the bible that are set in stone, and those are consistently mentioned throughout all the writings (murder, stealing, sexual immorality, etc.). History has proven those laws to be sound for any society. But concerning each person's direction for their lives, only God knows what's best.
#25300 Feb 12, 2014
Yes — and, of course, we can speed up that glorious day of the second coming by doing everything in our power to incite war in the middle east to fulfill the babblical prophesy when the rapture will sweep all of us god-certified good people to an eternity with him in heaven and leave our unworthy brethren, like all those liberal riffraff, behind behind where they belong to suffer eternal damnation.
#25301 Feb 12, 2014
and above is the reason the Democratic party wants to ban Christmas with exception for bonuses and paid day off.
if they fool enough people, they are re-elected to the gravy train that derails on that glorious day you specified so well.
excuses won't be heard.
