You are very welcome. I just can't stand to see people publicly slandered, especially when they have done nothing but accept Christ into their lives. That was indeed the sole purpose of this entire thread. Look at it this way. We have it easy compared to what He did for us. Take care Angel,& by the way, I did pray for you and the other people who posted on here whether they wanted me to or not.

By the way,Angel, I'm a different person than any of the above. The comments I made under "not here to argue" were the only comments I'd made & were from me alone. Nobody else. Please know that I SELDOM EVER look on here but this caught my eye. Must have been a God thing. Who knew anything good could ever come from Topix? Haha I won't be back on here so if anyone else posts under this name it IS NOT ME. I will continue to keep you & your family in my prayers. Merry Christmas!

Trinity don't want you there if you can't put enough in their offering plate. I had 3 small kids and my husband was layed off from his job and we were asked by the minister to revoke our membership. True story.

The Old Testament is not a separate book....it is part of the Bible. KJV is the abreviation of the "King James Version" of the Bible...which is made up of the Old and New Testaments.

The Old Testament rules are the fun, wacky ones. The point isn't even the rules, though, really. The New Testament has:

Women must wear veils and hide their hair when praying. 1 Corinthians 11:5

Women have no authority over men. Timothy 2:11

Divorce and remarriage is adultery. Luke 16:18

Even looking counts as adultery in Matthew. Unless, of course, if it is your dead brothers wife, because you are required to take her, as stated in Mark.

My favorite verse that applies to Topix more than any?

If someone steals from you, give them the shirt off your back. Matthew 5:40

But anywho, the whole book has more problems than sexist laws and outdated philosophy. Though let me say that Jesus wasn't so bad as he mostly taught love and tolerance. And there is nothing wrong with love and tolerance. That is all I want for the whole world is love and tolerance. Sadly, religion often gets in the way of that.

<quoted text>I'm not here to argue with anyone, but people always seem to bring up these old Jewish laws that are in the Old Testament. Yes it is absolutely part of the Bible. However, after Jesus came and died on the cross for our sins, things changed. For example, God no longer required people to burn offerings to him for their sins because Jesus had already come to do that. That. is why the Bible is divided into the Old Testament & the New Testament. I surely do not claim to be a Bible scholar by any means, but I do listen up in church enough to understand that much. As for the mother struggling with the gay child, I will certainly pray for you mam, as I can only imagine how torn you feel between loving your child with all your heart & yet not approve of what they are choosing to do. I will pray for EVERYONE who has weighed in on this subject, even those who haven't had nice things to say about others. God Bless.
Amen, my brother , GOD is good!!!!!

Hello,'Wondering'. You seem to think I am unversed and making things up. Please, allow me:
Don't let cattle graze with other kinds of Cattle (Leviticus 19:19)
Don't have a variety of crops on the same field.(Leviticus 19:19)
Don't wear clothes made of more than one fabric (Leviticus 19:19)
Don't cut your hair nor shave.(Leviticus 19:27)
Any person who curseth his mother or father, must be killed.(Leviticus 20:9)
If a man has sex with a woman on her period, they are both to be "cut off from their people" (Leviticus 20:18)
Psychics, wizards, and so on are to be stoned to death.(Leviticus 20:27)
If a priest's daughter is a whore, she is to be burnt at the stake.(Leviticus 21:9)
People who have flat noses, or is blind or lame, cannot go to an altar of God (Leviticus 21:17-18)
Anyone who curses or blasphemes God, should be stoned to death by the community.(Leviticus 24:14-16)
Don't eat shellfish.(Leviticus 11-9)
And as you mentioned, the bible does reference homosexuality:
Man shall not lie with another man as he does with a woman (Leviticus 18-22)
According to levitucus, tattoos are out as well.
Slavery is regulated and condoned in Deuteronomy, as well as rape.
Both of those two topics appear in a multitude of books.
The problem is, you pick and choose. And I don't blame you, those laws are mostly ridiculous. Question what you are told, good person, and keep wondering.


Ok well do any of u realize this is old testament teaching? Before christ came and died for our sins. The old testament was written for the jews of israel and when jesus died for our sins a lot changed. Thats y its so important to know the Bible and study it so u can differenciate between the two. Im by no means perfect i have a lot if self improvements i need to make. But if ur going to argue about the Bible y not pick it up first u never know the next time it may be u supporting the word of God.

Yep .. It was good reading, but a man made book. it was written long after Jesus died . Plus it contradicts it's self from one book to another! But it's a good book for history. How many of you think Eve was the first woman.? Well what about Lilith ? Not to mention King James only aloud the books "he" wanted in the bible! So much is missing!!! And verse's were greatly changed in translation ..
