I like jokes too.
Sister Mary Catherine and Sister Mary Elizabeth are walking through the park when they are jumped by two thugs. Their habits are ripped from them and the men begin to sexually assault them.
Sister Mary Catherine casts her eyes heavenward and cries, "Forgive him Lord, for he knows not what he is doing!"
Mary Elizabeth turns and says, "Mine does..."

I'm even worse than you are in the irreverence department. I probably would have made a joke about the two nuns going at it.

Peter Principle on display yet again. You have to know what you have a knack for, and stay away from things you know nothing about. Priest should stick to his spreadsheets and leave the marketing and consumer side to people who know better.

So Christianity is not the source of morality. That's all any atheist here has said. I'm glad you agree.
God is absolutely the source of morality.
Those who follow Him are not "guaranteed" moral perfection in this life.

That's just a weak argument bandied about by hateful atheists.
They have so little that brings them happiness in this life.

No, because douche cannot criticize anything even remotely connected to Islam.

The proposition is that behaviors are not deemed moral simply because a society practices them.
Ms. MPNF then went off on a tangent blaming slavery on Christianity, and most of the world's problems on all religion...which is all very interesting because, as it turns out, she really doesn't have a problem with any forebears having practiced slavery -- she doesn't find it immoral.
Nope. She just hates Christians and all religion in general.
Proving that discussions with these Helen Keller types are not very productive.
Wow. You really like to take very simple and plain statements and blow them into grand, sweeping generalizations. If someone said they didn't like prunes, you would declare that they hate all fruit.

I'm torn on this issue.

Not that I am a great font of historic knowledge, but I do tend to know the basics and how it fits in with the big picture. Christianity didn't arise in a vacuum. Christianity incorporated certain elements of pagan morality and ritual as well. Christians came up with a code of conduct that reflects a lot of wisdom, and for the most part works.

Now, whether that was divinely inspired or not, who knows? I believe it was divinely inspired because the people who wrote this were bright and bright people generally don't seem to think this way.

On the other hand, although for me, God is the glue that holds all of this together, since some of the same rituals and teachings existed in the pagan religions, I'm going to say there is an argument to be made that this is just a natural evolution of things.

I don't necessarily understand "God" in a legalistic sense, as a set of rules and rituals you "have" to follow. Maybe you have to as a child so that these things sink in. But as an adult, these rules are mostly the proper way to live, and the key to financial and personal prosperity.

As I've mentioned before, the Roman pagans considered the early Christians to be athiests. Considering what people like you and I think about Scientologists, Hare Krishnas, Mormons and even Moslems, I can see that.

OTOH, I also wonder how much of this was passed down verbally in the verbal history from generation to generation?

Who knows?

"Who knows?" is absolutely correct. Base on what I have read here, I am not banking on Tip having any inside information whatsoever.

God wrote morality on our hearts when He gifted each of us with a conscience.
The written Law merely confirms His truth.

Romans 2:6-16

He will render to each one according to his works: to those who by patience in well-doing seek for glory and honor and immortality, he will give eternal life; but for those who are self-seeking and do not obey the truth, but obey unrighteousness, there will be wrath and fury. There will be tribulation and distress for every human being who does evil, the Jew first and also the Greek, but glory and honor and peace for everyone who does good, the Jew first and also the Greek. For God shows no partiality.

For all who have sinned without the law will also perish without the law, and all who have sinned under the law will be judged by the law. For it is not the hearers of the law who are righteous before God, but the doers of the law who will be justified. For when Gentiles, who do not have the law, by nature do what the law requires, they are a law to themselves, even though they do not have the law. They show that the work of the law is written on their hearts, while their conscience also bears witness, and their conflicting thoughts accuse or even excuse them on that day when, according to my gospel, God judges the secrets of men by Christ Jesus.

Precision in language is important. Maybe not at Colby College, but for the rest of us it is.
So, people move here but don't like it, booner? Or only old people who live here like it?
The inability of you NE Ohio tools to admit you've been burned just confirms your status as complete lowlifes.

Wah! You are plugging my ears and covering your eyes! No truth but what you declare, right?

You were given fact and then you run away from it because it isn't what you believe to be true, much to your chagrin, I'm sure.
