Barney, I am quite sure that we will not agree on the topic of scripture, and that is ok. We don't have to.
Let me just get this idea of judging Lot out of the way.
Obviously, you chose to miss the point of my tongue in cheek comment about being judgemental. That's fine. I care nothing about beating that dead horse. We all have eyes...most of us use our brains, and for the most part, after reading each others comments for so long, it is evident that you would be the tiny minority that didn't 'get it'.
I personally don't think calling the incestuous plot and actions by Lot and his daughters vile is being judgemental. In fact, it was not only vile, it was also disgusting. If you feel that I am judgemental because of that, then that is fine.

And yes, you are correct that Ruth was a Moabite, and in the lineage of Christ. Certainly pointing to the grace and mercy in the heart of our God that wouldn't have had to show any grace nor mercy to Mr. Moab, since he was the product of that incestuous act between Lot and his oldest daughter.
(Not to mention Rahab, the harlot, also in the lineage of Christ...talk about a family tree that might cause some to judge...whew!!)
I sure am thankful that He did, though.

So far, we have managed to line up fairly well...until now. Here is probably going to be where we part in our haphazard scriptural unity....
While I will agree that Peter penned this surprising legacy about Lot, Peter most certainly did not 'say' it...and God most definitely did.
Due to the time, I have to go. But I will follow up soon.

Since: Dec 10

Oh, Barney, grow up! Man up! Don't be a whiney baby!! Have a little pride in yourself! Stop all of these paranoid accusations! My face just flushes and I get all embarrassed for you when I start reading your wild and crazy fantasy island posts! For the last time...
I am hiding nothing! Your awesome detective skills have not caused me to confess anything.
And for the last time, hear me and hear me well...if I could control that silly IP location thing, I would! I live in AR, and I post from my Kindle. I can post one thing from one room and it says I am in VA. I can go to another room in the house, post, and it will show I am in CA. Sometimes, I don't even move out of my chair, and it will change from one place to the other. Now, every time that you beat this dead horse, I am going to refer back to this post, and remind you, because nothing will change!
(However, if anyone can explain that to me, I would love to know why it is that way!
Barney, are you fascinated with this word 'monkiers', and feel that the more you use it, the more intelligent you sound?
Have mercy, Barney, let it go! I am not now, nor have I ever been
This is a public forum. When you throw something out there...I don't care if it is for Jack, for Jill, or for the Three Bears, it is fair game for a response...from anyone!
And, Barney,(big sigh)... oh Barney...
Bless your little p-pickin' brain...you have GOT to come up with better material...original stuff would be appreciated!
You are most transparent...someone uses a word, and you latch on to it, and begin incorporating it in the next few posts.
Case in point...'ego'.
I called you an egomaniac once or twice, and in turn, you take that word, and begin using it in your own posts to describe others.
It certainly isn't the first time you've done it...not the tenth time...nor even the hundredth time...and honestly Barney, you are embarrassing yourself by doing it!
Job will follow
Thank you for good belly laugh this AM sister.

"I called you an egomaniac once or twice, and in turn, you take that word, and begin using it in your own posts"

Really, show me where I used the word "egomaniac" in that post.

Youre Welcome

'Being ignored was more than your fragile ego could stand .'

Why Peter said that is still perplexing to biblical scholars today, and rightly so.
Barney, why do you insist on this incessant tit for tat banter...pulling this sad,'I didn't say it' routine when your words give you away?
You are constantly back-tracking, pulling out phrases and partial sentences from someone's post, distorting the original meaning, and adding some sort of comment that you think makes you sound superior and intelligent. Barney, you are neither.

My "fragile ego", Barney? Seriously? One thing's for sure, you keep us laughing!! You know as well as the rest of us know that the root word for 'egomaniac' is ego.
Surely you don't want to embarrass yourself further by explaining how those two words are not the same and you didn't use that descriptive word because I had just used the same FORM of the word to describe you?

You are much more transparent than the Obama administration could ever claim to be!! If only they could take a lesson from you!

And, seriously, Barney... this sentence of yours:
"Why Peter said that is still perplexing to Bible scholars today, and rightly so" is about as original from your mind and fingertips as me trying to claim, "Four score and seven years ago..." as mine.

I'm sorry, Barney. I'm sure my above post was difficult for you to comprehend seeing how it wasn't copied and pasted from some Bible helps website that you obviously used to enlighten us on Biblical history.
I'm not surprised at all that instead of being able to speak reasonably and intelligently about a topic you know little about, you feel you must respond with profanity and sarcasm...both the typical diversion paths of choice for those that get in over their head.
(Lest we all forget, it was your choice to extend the invitation more than once to expound this discussion.)

And in your true to form, typical, transparent Barney style of writing, your post is setting the stage and opening the door for you to eventually divert the attention from Scripture, which will be difficult for you to discuss, and on to mockery and passing judgements on those that chose to believe the Bible is indeed the Living Word of God, as self righteous, "hypocritical idiots" that you detest.(I believe those were a couple of the descriptive words you previously used to pass your personal judgement on others).

It's ok, Barney. We all see through your transparency. We were all ready for it...expecting it...and laughing when you confirmed what we knew was coming with this post of yours.

"...an eyewitness to the event." Oh Barney... you really are a predictable hoot!!

You know, I have short-changed your originality just a bit, and feel that I must give credit where credit is due!
I am quite sure that the following has only been used by you, Barney...several times, in fact, and that you never had the opportunity to borrow this one from a poster here.
"... your panties in such a wad..."
Of course, I don't believe another poster here would dare use such a quote...but you own this one!

"Wrong again Cupcake..."
Now, about this matter of referring to me as, "Cupcake". I would ask that you not do it again.
I realize that it is within your right to do so, but I'd just ask you not to.

It's called the Word of God, not the word of Peter. Written by man divinely inspired by God. It is God's word.

And finally, I will address this...your grand finale gaffe of the day.
The Word of God is alive and active, Barney! It is the very Word of God....not the words of the men He inspired to write His Word.
If you do not believe this, then there will be no further need to discuss His Word with you, and your opinion of God's Word will have zero merit.
This is not because I am intolerant of others...or that I am self righteous or hypocritical. I am not the originator of the proclamation that all Scripture is given by God or that it is His Word.
God said it and I chose to believe Him.
If you have any sort of problem with that, or any mocking and sarcastic remarks, please take that up with Him.
I am not going to demand you think like me...try to 'prove' the validity of scripture and demand that you accept God's Word the way I have chosen to accept it and believe it. That is your business.

However, if you you chose to believe the Bible is not the Word of God, and that it is not alive and active, it will be a moot point to discuss it with you.

And we have a winner!! Poor old Barney!!
Throw the bait and reel him in...and in record time!
I thought, if you had even a mustard seeds worth of shame or self-respect you would at least wait a couple of hours before that little kid mentality of yours would respond back with a 'cupcake' comment, but even I didn't really get just how simple-minded you really truly are!
One of these days, when you begin to mature a little, a long long way in the future, you will begin to understand how you embarrass yourself so badly by being so predictable and transparent.
But for now...Well...you just keep making it too easy to find cheap entertainment!! We all get to just sit back, cast a few pieces of bait your way, and watch you race to get caught.
Yep...cheap and fun entertainment you are, Barney!!

Oh, Barney...bless your heart.
If this makes you feel better to distort the original text,and build yourself up by putting your fantasy island glasses on and stepping into another world, then go right ahead. The only one you are fooling is yourself.
However...reading this post seems to indicate it doesn't really make you feel better. You sound a little sad...in a hurt and dejected sort of way...and that kinda takes the fun out of it.
Buck up, little buddy.
I should have remembered that you can dish it (well...sorta...) but you can't take it.
I'll stop with the banter for now... I mean, there's very little left to say...and we are probably on the verge of seeing you self destruct with your next responses, anyway.
