There is NO true christians around, because they cant follow the whole bible., you dont gamble,be rude to people. then go SUNDAY and say forgive me lord, or be friendly infront of people then judge them behind their backs... THAT IS NOT christian!!!

dont spend time with your close family,be rude to them etc. and Call yourself a christain...

Lord says GOD ,Family, Friends in that ORDER..

I dont claim to be christian but I try to treat ,people with respect as fellow human beings.

try to help when I can and spend time with family and friends. we never know when Our time is coming.. To be Honest Im not ready for it.. Or you.

That means they have issues in their life they need to fix and get things on the right track. Doesn't mean ALL Methodist for like that. I am sure they are people like that in every church (methodist, baptist, church or God, and all others). But those people are doing wrong by God not the church.

So grateful I have an open mind and don't fall for that Christian bull#%*+. Like Ghandi said...I like your Christ but not your Christians. They are so unlike Christ.

Have you Christians threatened your children with eternal damnation today? My Creator is loving and caring and would never harm. The whole Bible contradicts itself and people fall for it out of fear. Seriously? Jesus's teachings are totally taken out of context. Let me know how that works out for you.

Same God, different ideas on how to interpret certain things. Denominations are man made, not God made.

Care to point out any of those contridictions? I'll be happy to straighten up how it all fits together if you'd like.

Here is a list for starters but no, I don't need it explained to me. I'm much to busy living my wonderful life that my Creator has graciously given me to argue with closed-minded people. When I start to explain what I understand my GOD is to me I am judging what you believe. That's not spiritual and I try to live my life by spiritual principles today. The Christian Bible suggest that Christians also live their lives by spiritual principles I would assume.

There really isn't any genealogy to speak of in Luke. Can you be more specific?

1)Snails do not melt
PSA 58:8 As a snail which melteth, let every one of them pass away: like the untimely birth of a woman, that they may not see the sun.->Snails do seem to melt if you pour salt on them.

2)Fowl from waters or ground?
GEN 1:20 And God said, Let the waters bring forth abundantly the moving creature that hath life, and fowl that may fly above the earth in the open firmament of heaven.
GEN 1:21 And God created great whales, and every living creature that moveth, which the waters brought forth abundantly, after their kind, and every winged fowl after his kind: and God saw that it was good.

GEN 2:19 And out of the ground the LORD God formed every beast of the field, and every fowl of the air; and brought them unto Adam to see what he would call them: and whatsoever Adam called every living creature, that was the name thereof.->Water Fowl (i.e. Sea Gulls, Ducks, Swans, etc. are referenced here), and Ground Fowl (Song birds, etc.)

3)Snakes, while built low, do not eat dirt
GEN 3:14 And the LORD God said unto the serpent, Because thou hast done this, thou art cursed above all cattle, and above every beast of the field; upon thy belly shalt thou go, and dust shalt thou eat all the days of thy life:->References living in the dust, i.e. holes in the ground.

The vast majorities of the rest are either taken out of context (which is vitally important when discussing the Bible. Both historical context, and literary context.), and can be explained with the proper understanding and open mindedness. As for the Genealogy, I was able to find it, and it wasn't uncommon for people to go by different names (Greek vs. Romanized names, etc. Or change their name completely Paul to Saul, Abram to Abraham, Sarai to Sarah, etc.) So, it wouldn't be unheard of for the names to not match 100% but could be verified with census records if available.
