Here, let me help you;

Genesis 1:26-28 (NJB)
26 God said,‘Let us make man in our own image, in the likeness of ourselves, and let them be masters of the fish of the sea, the birds of heaven, the cattle, all the wild animals and all the creatures that creep along the ground.'
27 God created man in the image of himself, in the image of God he created him, male and female he created them.
28 God blessed them, saying to them,‘Be fruitful, multiply, fill the earth and subdue it. Be masters of the fish of the sea, the birds of heaven and all the living creatures that move on earth.'

Defects,'death', entered that perfect creation as the result of the Fall.

Question for you. Transgendered admit that they defectively have the wrong physical gender attached to their sexuality. Why don't you admit that homosexuality is confused, defective mating behavior?

Since you have failed to prove this invisible sky thing even exists you really are in no position to tell us about him. And where exactly did you get this bit of information? Someone told you.

Who ever told you that didn't know what they were talking about. And neither do you.

We might just as well listen to someone tell about the little green men who live on the other side of the moon where we can't see them.

"our" image, "ourselves"? Sounds like more than one God to me. Why anyone pays attention to a book that lists the bat in a long list of birds and claims the sun went backwards in the sky is not a book I would trust to tell me anything.

And the fact that 'Gods' lets you KiMare appoint yourself to tell us about 'thems' is reason enough to reject everything we know about you, the Bible and the Gods of the Bible.

nificant aspect of this matter is that there is no reference to Jesus of Nazareth in any non-Christian writings of antiquity. One can peruse all the great literature of that era and find nothing proving the man even existed. "There is no history written at the time Jesus Christ is said to have lived that speaks of the existence of such a person, even as a man" (The Life and Works of Paine,Vol 9, p. 271). "We know nothing certainly of Jesus Christ. We know nothing of his infancy, nothing of his youth, and we are not sure that such a person even existed" (Interviews, Ingersoll's Works, Vol. 5, p. 273. Anyone wishing to believe in the reality of Jesus will have to rely upon the New Testament and the NT alone. There is no other sote a Bible verse when you choose to live in open rebellion against God's many commands against all homosexual behavior?

The Bible repeatedly and emphatically condemns all homosexual behavior in both Testaments and in the plainest of terms.
In recent months several people have asked me if the Bible supports cannabalism in any form and the answer, succinctly stated, is yes. The following enumeration covers virtually every relevant biblical comment and shows the key verses fall into two broad categories: those in which God or Jesus commands or condones cannabalistic activity and those which merely relate activities of this nature. One can justifiably accuse the Bible of advocating cannabalism in light of the former but not the latter. Merely relating instances of cannabalism, rape, incest, or other atrocious behavior doesn't mean such activities are being fostered or proposed. Among the former are such verses as:
"And ye shall eat the flesh of your sons, and the flesh of your daughters shall ye eat" (Lev. 26:29) and
"I will cause them to eat the flesh of their sons and the flesh of their daughters, and they shall eat every one the flesh of his friend...." (Jer. 19:9) and
"I will make your oppressors eat their own flesh, and they shall be drunk with their own blood as with wine" (Isa. 49:26 RSV) and
"Therefore fathers shall eat their sons in the midst of you, and sons shall eat their fathers...." (Ezek. 5:10).
So Burrito Boy David Pekin Ill, cannibalism is completely acceptable to your BibleGod, cannibalism is not a perversion, according to BibleGod and you want us to believe two men loving one another is perversion just because of 6 mis-translated and stupid verses in the same book.
You are a defective being David, you are in need of extreme psychological help. Your obsession for cannibalism and rejection of homosexuality proves you are one sick puppy. Either than or you are 3 fries short of a Happy Meal.

You live in open rebellion against BibleGods many commands against all you do here.

What do you hope to gain here Burrito Boy? No one pays any attention to anything you post. You do not pay attention and I do not pay attention.

Your hypocrisy shows people how divorced from reality you and your fellow pew warmers are. Each of your posts proves you hate biblical teachings and how you have no control over yourself. You are out of control and psychologically sick, broken and defective. I suspect that that makes you a pretty damn good Sunday School teacher.

A few years ago friends of mine at the Biblical Errancy Panel had labels printed up that said that and every time they traveled, if there was a Bible in their hotel room they put that label on it.

Good idea!

ccording to God's word the Bat is a bird:

Leviticus 11:13-19,"And these you shall detest among the birds; they shall not be eaten; they are detestable: the eagle, the bearded vulture, the black vulture, the kite, the falcon of any kind, every raven of any kind, the ostrich, the nighthawk, the sea gull, the hawk of any kind, the little owl, the cormorant, the short-eared owl, the barn owl, the tawny owl, the carrion vulture, the stork, the heron of any kind, the hoopoe, and the bat."

You have to be a complete moron [which you have demonstrated you are] to quote from a book like it was an authority when it clearly says the bat is a bird.

Who believes the bat is a bird? Pew warming bigots and other retards are the only ones. Intelligent normal people, like homosexuals know that the bat is a mammal and they do not look to such a stupid book as you quote from to tell them about the love they express towards other men.
