Neither you, nor I, nor anyone else, has any idea how old the Earth is, as none were present at its Creation.
What we do know is that God created all things ex nihilo by the word of His mouth.
And since Jesus is, in fact, God...the entire Word of God originates from Him as well.
You are thoroughly inconsistent in claiming that you will believe the words of Jesus, as recorded by his followers, but reject the remaining words in Scripture, as recorded by other of God's followers.
I'd call you a cafeteria Christian, but that would be too generous.
You deny the basic tenets of Christianity and proclaim the lies as truths.
You're not alone on Topix.
So don't feel discriminated against.
Wow you're so uneducated it takes my breath away.

Trinitarianism was added to Christian Dogma several hundred years AFTER the death of Christ. I'd call you a cafeteria Christian, but that would be too generous. You're just arrogant and lazy.

You obviously do not believe ALL of the words of Jesus Christ, as recorded in Scripture.
Jesus did many other things as well. If every one of them were written down, I suppose that even the whole world would not have room for the books that would be written.
(John 21:25)

As I said of you before and of your buddy Bigsby.

You are both arrogant and lazy.

You both also insist everyone else follow your brand of Christian Love.

As I said before the two of you are behaving exactly like the folks in Rome that Paul was upset with.

Karmic Irony!

Pretty simple concept (for your simple mind).
Let's say the church has $1,000,000 in revenues (donations. tithing, etc.).
They pay the pastor $50,000 (on which he pays taxes usually) but he also gets free housing; let's say the value of that is $50,000. But he and the church pay no taxes on that. So the pastor is getting something that he might normally have to earn another $75,000 to afford (paying taxes to net $50,000). The government is giving him the equivalent of $25,000 that they would normally collect in taxes.
The church does not pay property tax as a rule. Let's say they build a $3,000,000 church that, based on local property tax rates, would normally cost them $25,000 a year. The government is giving them $25,000 that would normally be collected as tax revenue. So there you have it.
There are no justifications for these special exclusions for religious organizations given the spirit of the first amendment. Of course you nutjobs shriek about your tax dollars being used to support various secular activities but are happy as can be when your representatives violate the constitution to spend tax dollars on your church.
You and Harry Reid must sit down and do budgets together.

You're so correct. The church is in the city and the parish is using tax payer paid for streets to get there. They are using tax payer money on the sewers that they use in their restrooms and sinks. If the place should catch on fire, the tax payer paid for fire department must respond. If the church is in a big city and there is a big funeral for some VIP, the local police must do traffic control and security, all of that paid for by tax payers. If someone breaks in, the tax payer paid for police respond. and so on.

Their free ride is sickening.

Yet we pick up the slack (and then some) when it comes to hospitals, feeding and sheltering the hungry and homeless and raising money for training and educational programs.
You also seem to conveniently forget that the Church is "the people" and we pay all those taxes you're so worried about.
Funny how you bigots never seem to mention that.

How nice for you. You pay your taxes, my my, I am sure your Congressional Medal of Honor will be along any day now.

WHO said you did not pay taxes? WHAT does that have to do with ANYTHING? gee, deflect from the subject much?

I shop at Target. I go to the movies. I dine at restaurants. UNLIKE your church, THESE place pay taxes to help the community they exist in, unlike your tithe sucking churches which sit there like hogs in slop, picking the congregation members up by the ankles and shaking money out of their pockets, while NOT paying taxes on it.

Hey dummy...THE PEOPLE ARE THE CHURCH. We pay taxes. And we give to the community through he Church far more than the Church takes in services.

That's an awful hypo.

Even Rehnquist would tell you that would get tossed like a big salad.

You want me to post the link to Rehnquist's opinion for you again Paco?

Who said you did NOT pay taxes, Cletus? Are you having cognitive difficulties? It is the CHURCH that does not pay taxes. Just because the congregation pays, through the nose due to extortion of the church elders, does NOT make the church any hero.

I understand whore houses in Nevada pay taxes. They are far more useful than a church,for THEY provide pleasure, not guilt, PLUS they carry their own weight, unlike your FREE LOADING church.

This is a church and not a private enterprise and has the constitutional prerogative to live by the tenets of its faith. If the teacher wants to acknowledge a gay partner, perhaps he should seek employment in a public school. Churches should have the right to insist that its members and employees follow and not flout the tenets. If this were a public school, he would have the right to sue.

God wrote Leviticus through Moses which is a foundation for Christianity, Judaism and Islam. Leviticus 18:22 clearly states "Thou shalt not lie with mankind as with womankind. It is abomination." Your hatred of the truth does not change the truth, even birds and squirrels know this.
Nature also indicates otherwise as seen in the aids virus that infects homosexuals and IV drug abusers.
Change your sinful ways before it is too late.
The records give Yeshua plainly declaring that not everything in the Mosaic Code is of divine origin. Remember where?

Kinda sorta. Binitarianism appeared within a hundred years, with the stage set in Antioch, but largely from Alexandrian origins. It was developed further over the next century in Asia minor, especially in Cappadocia, where Trinitarianism was codified and expounded most systematically. About a century later, the Nicene councils were composed largely of those who followed that teaching. Other "bishops" were discouraged from attending, or simply not informed of the Council. One main opponent was poisoned.

The root of such heresies is to be found in the diversion of focus from the message of Yeshua onto his person.
