It's one of some 30 odd reasons God insists we put folk to death for their actions. You claim to have read the Book, you should know this already. You may want to brush up on them.
Does that mean murder is now okay?

How about adultery?

Or a favorite of yours, lying?

I think they might burn for a period of time but most die from smoke inhalation.

"When this method of execution was applied with skill, the condemned’s body would burn progressively in the following sequence: calves, thighs and hands, torso and forearms, breasts, upper chest, face; and then finally death. On other occasions, people died from suffocation with only their calves on fire. Several records report that victims took over two hours to die. In many burnings a rope was attached to the convict’s neck passing through a ring on the stake and they were simultaneously strangled and burnt."

Whoever wrote about eternal hell-fire and damnation must have been a sadist. Would God really condone such wickedness?

What a stupid constraint.
I have no problem with God's choice to command genocide. Especially after reading the history of those cultures.
You have already answered my question about abortion.
Smirk.
So, as long as you believe God has commanded an atrocity, it's ok.

If you were absolutely convinced that God had commanded you to kidnap, rape, torture, and kill infants, would you do it?

Buttercup, if you had actually bothered to try and comprehend the post you claim to have read, you should have learned that I was instructing our Leviticus quoter, as to other places where God insists we do his dirty work and kill people for their transgressions that he was probably unaware. You may want to brush up on them yourself and be thankful Jesus put a limit on the rock throwing by your fellow Christians.

Why do you fundies lie so much? I didn't demand that you either excuse or condemn all genocide, I asked you if genocide was acceptable to you. You have now made it clear that genocide is acceptable to you. You may say that it is acceptable when ordered by the god you believe in, but how can you be selective in your judgement about a thing like genocide, do you apply the same sort of twisted logic to another heinous crime, rape? Do you think that some rapes are acceptable too?
You say that I have already answered your question about abortion. Really? Perhaps you would like to show my post to you where I answered your question about abortion, because you are either simply mistaken about that or you are a blatant liar. I go for the latter. As I said at the start of my post, why do you fundies lie so much?

I think hell is God honoring the request of those who reject him;

Eternal existence totally apart from God.

A polite and just response.

Right?

The first atrocity was the behavior of a perverted culture.

The second atrocity is you ignoring it.

Justice is God ending it.

He never approves the kidnap, rape, and torture of anyone.

In fact, the nations he used to judge perverted cultures were themselves judged if they utilized those tactics.

Your ignorant slip is showing...

Shellfish while only 20% of consumed seafood is responsible for 80% of seafood poisoning. IN THIS DAY! Imagine what it was like before safe handling was instituted.

Forbidding mixed fabric was to distinguish Jews from other cultures. A 'uniform' if you may.

Again, the OT law forbids murder, adultery and lying. That is stupid too, stupid?

Smirk.

What they knowingly deny is that these very laws have distinguished and protected the Hebrew culture from every other culture.

No, YOU didn't, but nit-wits just like you did - it was nit-wits like you who authored the corrupt revisions in your "MANY English Bibles that condemn gays to hell'. Nit-wits like you changed the original wording and meaning of passages to reflect their own prejudice and self-serving opinions, by inserting the words "homosexual/s" and "Christian/s" where heretofore they'd never been.
You believe God will burn gays in eternal Hellfire! It's because you're wicked, that you think God is.

How do you know God would never approve the kidnap, rape, and torture of someone? Who are you to claim knowledge of the mind of God?

Abraham was absolutely convinced that God wanted him to kill his son. Why? Because he's the kind of God one would reasonably expect to demand the murder of one's own child. It was not out of God's character to command infanticide. Had God commanded such before? If it was the first time, would Abraham have been correct in denying such a command because it wasn't something his God would approve of? Likewise, who are you to tell God what he can and can't command someone to do?

By the way, your God most certainly does condone abduction and rape.

Judges 21:10-24
Numbers 31:7-18
Deuteronomy 20:10-14
2 Samuel 12:11-14
Zechariah 14:1-2

So, I guess it's only the torture bit you must think God wouldn't command. Of course, if you don't agree that rape can be torture, then I suppose you might have a leg to stand on.

Too bad they didn't protect the other cultures from the Hebrews.

The way I see it, our world and the universe beyond brings us much beauty and many mysteries that science has yet to explain. Could this be evidence of an existing G-d? Entirely possible. There are things we see every day that make us think that only G-d could be responsible for something that amazing and beautiful.

As for hell full of fire and some ridiculous lake? A crapload of bs, doesn't exist.
