Adam was taught the law after building the altar to worship The Lord. This is how there were High Priests in the OT.
Babies did nothing. Their parents were the sinners.
So the moral code of your god is, it is ok to kill the children for sins of the father?
Our laws see this as immoral. It was always immoral.

Ok, so you say the babies did nothing wrong, then please tell us why the god murdered them? You sure skipped right past that main point.

It is a pretty good excuse for the leaders to come up with. It gets them off the hook. Brilliant. Unbelievably people still today are falling prey to this line. Really makes me sad for mankind.
I addressed this in another post too. This is a great example of how you can get absolutely ANYTHING you want to get out of religion, especially if you have a fat book of contradictory stories.

And apologists knock themselves out finding ways to rationalize this stuff. I love how they will appeal to solid reason if solid reason works, but if using reason leads to a result that isn't aligned with the core belief they will drop reason like bad habit and go for the wildest, most insane rationalizations.

"um...uh....the devil did it! yeah, that's it."

Haha, seriously?? Read the New Testament again. Then we will talk. Jesus plainly taught what is necessary for salvation. It is not guaranteed for everyone.
So you could not find a single scripture to prove me wrong? Just what I thought would happen.
You interpret the bible one way, I will do it another way. Their are thousands of interpretations of the bible pal. Why? Guess the devil got to it.

I always wondered about the golden calf story. Seems like after watching the ten plagues, splitting the sea and everything else, they wouldn't have built a false God and started worshiping it the first time Moses took off for a minute. Kind of makes me think that either they really didn't see those "miracles" or the didn't switch Gods right in the middle of everything.
Now if neither ever happened and it's just a story, that makes a lot of sense. If you saw God part the sea would you worship a golden calf?
And they call us skeptical. The chosen people were supposedly in view of the greatest miracles of mankind, yet still did not buy the story. Yet we are expected to believe based upon the claims of the miracles?
When in fact is it is the claims miracles that make me all the more skeptical. The parts I believe are claims of 3,000 people being murdered over worshiping a golden calf. Now that is textbook dictatorship. Highly plausible.

Nope not a moralist in the least, Not a Moral aspect to my position, no religious aspect, no touchy feely poor little children aspect... I am Against Unjustified homicide of Human Beings... I don't think we should kill off large populations to save the planet, We should not go out on the weekend for a night of frolic and shoot people in the head.... I place Human Life above all other life forms... Not for any haughty moral reason, just because I am Human and Humans make the rules... If Dogs made the rules then they would get to say dogs are above all other live forms...
Now I would have Zero argument if the US Justice system through the legal process of constitutional valid law sets a date and say Human Life begins at a specific date certain... Before that abortion would not be homicide and if someone kills a fetus in a DUI crash or by kicking a woman in the belly he would only be charge with a bodily injury, assault or what ever the appropriate charge would be and never charge with Homicide... And all prisoners that are in prison for killing a fetus younger than date set have all charges and sentences dropped and expunged from their records concerning homicide...
Until then I stand by my view that any and all homicides should individual require legal justification before the courts including everyone involved in the conspiracy to commit the homicide, Including financial providers... To me it is no difference that to receive money from someone so you can hire a hit man to kill someone... Under some circumstances that might be deemed Justifiable but should be before the courts on each individual event to be justified...
I know the conservative mind has trouble when it comes to the grey areas. Not all is black and white. It is not easy to write laws in a black and white manner that is not in some way, seemingly contradictory.
What the law of our land states is, persons other than the mother cannot make the choice of aborting pregnancy. Only the mother can justly rule termination. No doctor, no government, no father, no one but the carrier.

So it is not seen as an unjust killing in the case of a mother aborting due to the fact only the mother has the choice. She is bearing the burden of carrying. Thus she has the choice of terminating that process.

Then you have a different interpretation of what a god is.
Many gods of history were subject to another god. It made them no less a god.

I only worship one God. He is the Father of us all, including Jesus Christ. I worship Jesus Christ as well because He is the Son of God and atoned for my sins and made it possible to return to our Father in Heaven. The Holy Ghost I do not worship, but commune with frequently. He is the Spirit that has the responsibilities to witness to all that Jesus is the Son of God and that God lives, as well as confirm gospel truth to us, and comfort us.
Jesus was a spirit before coming to earth and gaining His physical body, just like you and me. One cannot be exalted unless he has a physical body, as Jesus demonstrated. And since all those that are saved will be joint heirs with Christ, it only makes sense that we can be exalted too if we follow all the commandments and repent of our sins.
You misunderstand the last quote. Flesh and bone alone can't enter Heaven, but we all will be resurrected which means we receive our bodies back (glorified). This means our spirit and body can go to Heaven.
You may only worship one of these gods, but they can be seen as multiple gods.

And some of this stuff will probably remain a never ending nightmare to have to consider, when thinking about national security.
I just think we'd do better to take care of handle it in our OWN country, because we (nor any other nation) certainly will Never be able to "control" what all the people think, feel or worship. Ever.
Some of latest it of interesting I've run across...
Deleted due to being irrelevant.
If I am lying about something, tell me specifically. Otherwise, you are just making up shit.

First, you have no as yet said whether you support the invasion of Iraq yet. Likely because you do not wish to be caught in a contradiction.

Keep in mind, I have no defended a single military action by Obama here. So you seem to be jumping to some conclusions about me.
On the other hand, you defended the invasion of Iraq, but stopped short of claiming the invasion is something you supported.
Your statements seem wishy washy.

I think we would actually agree on a few things on this subject.

And how can we ever handle it on our own country when Christian fundamentalists here cannot understand the good of secularism.
This is the part I am trying to handle, and you are on the wrong side of it.

Q---"The more Islamist kill other Islamist the less we will have to kill later....
When they go outside their own people and attack our assets or the assets of
our allies then beat them with a stick and walk away and let them starve in mass...
Don't care if they need water because we take out their dams, don't care if they
behead their women or car bomb their mosques.... Don't care if they are left with
2 donkeys and a cart to carry on ... if they step outside killing their own then
we smack the dog crap out of them and walk away..."

Q---"But for a change let France handle it... Not my problem... "

Q---"And All Human Beings have a Constitutional Right to Life... And the Homicide of Any Human being is My business..."

"All" human beings means only "American" human beings to you.
The beheading, torture, murder of women and children (and fetuses) in the Middle East are not your problem.
Am I understanding your words correctly?

I find your attitude toward killing interesting.

As a Christian, I would love for the Bible to be taught in every school. As a human, I can see the pitfalls of this, the number #1 being you would be forcing one religion on the entire US population; and while I don't think that is a bad thing spiritually, I do not think God wants a people forced to believe in him or worship him without a choice.

We've seen where our children have gone since they took the Bible (or any religious teachings) out of the school. Our children are taught they evolved from fish and animals, so they are reverting back to behaving like unprincipled, cornered animals. I feel if you teach evolution, then you should also teach creationism.

Once a child has a sense of "forever" he may make better decisions in this life instead of saying, "What does it matter. I'm just gonna die and that's it." People have to have hope in order to strive to make tomorrow better for themselves and others. Without hope, life is going to continue that downward slide.

Perhaps we could compile and only teach the good principals combining ALL religions that teach peace and love of fellow man? I don't see why anyone should have a problem with that. Unless you are one who likes kids killing kids and even taking their own lives because they're being taught they are nothing but inconsequential specks of evoluation that just happened; no purpose, no reason and no future.

We see what this teaching has done since Madeline O'Hara. Why can't we make decisions based on giving hope back to our children.

Thank you.

How a non-morman can become like a morman prophet and have instant morman followers.

In the beginning_____
**********
LOL posts-
"There is no god"
-
"yes the liar" relpies-
"A fool in his heart says......"(insult)
-
LOL replies -
"A fool believes the heart does anything but pump blood." (insult returned)
-
future prophet replies -
"It also produces Cardiac Enzymes......"(Huh)
-
LOL -
"Produces?"(notice the not sure stance by LOL)
"Enzymes are contained within the muscle cells and are released into the blood when the cells are damaged."( fact )
"The heart pumps blood its a muscle."(fact)
-
future prophet -
*Yes, produces.........enzymes...... ....
-
LOL -
"The heart pumps blood and nothing else."(It could pump other things water, gasoline, etc but not recommended, side effects are a killer) "No thoughts, no talking, no emotions just pumps blood."
**"As for cellular level activity, nothing to do with my post."**(notice last line)
-
future prophet -
* I was being specific and the heart does not have thoughts, no talking, no emotions(just like LOL claimed)... But it also produces Cardiac Enzymes...(and LOL agreed just not sure about the produce part) which is more than "Just Pumps Blood".....and might I add it also has a nerve feedback to the lungs, brain and cardio vascular system that lets the assorted systems change their outputs and control signals to deal with transient conditions..........Wow)
-
LOL -
**"Like I said, has nothing to do with my post. The word "thick" comes to mind."(could have used dense).
-
future prophet -
*ad hominem attack, ad hominem attack (dances around chair arms waving) you were wrong and I was right...... I won, I won, na-na na-na boo-boo........ Get over yourself I won........*(won what)
-
"dimwit"(cheerleader and new follower)-
*Yes he won, he won.*(Physically spells out v-i-c-t-o-r-y)
-
future prophet -
*Thank you, facts are facts and laws are laws(readjusts glasses askew from dancing).........
-
"dimwit" -
*My prophet schooled you "LOL", so quit whining(does fist pump, high fives air).*

**********
And the morman prophet "religummist" rises above mere mortals, puts on Queens "we are the champions" song, snaps a self portrait and announces to the room "I won".........."They " say this is how some delusions start. Really. Stop laughing. "THEY" did a study.)
**********

New additon to the "bom" coming soon.
Or maybe a new "miracle" story........

Disclaimer:
Fake monikers were used in telling this. Some resemblance of fake monikers to real fake monikers was unintentional kinda. Based on a real topix exchange . No real people were hurt(maybe some religie feelings). No claim is being made that these are gods words or inspired by said deity. Some posts were "edited for content" to exclude religie standard remarks such as; "a school girl with her panties all bunched up", Qoute from the -bor- "book of religummist". Such children fetishes are not and should not be acceptable to any reader.
