What is the difference? What do you think the Bible "says"?
I think it says she will get a hell of a bellyache and maybe even some kind of infection that would cause her to be sterile.

16 “And the priest shall bring her near and set her before the Lord. 17 And the priest shall take holy water in an earthenware vessel and take some of the dust that is on the floor of the tabernacle and put it into the water. 18 And the priest shall set the woman before the Lord and vunbind the hair of the woman's head and place in her hands the grain offering of remembrance, which is the grain offering of jealousy. And in his hand the priest shall have the water of bitterness that brings the curse. 19 Then the priest shall make her take an oath, saying,‘If no man has lain with you, and if you have not turned aside to uncleanness while you were under your husband's authority, be free from this water of bitterness that brings the curse. 20 But if you have gone astray, though you are under your husband's authority, and if you have defiled yourself, and some man other than your husband has lain with you, 21 then’(let the priest make the woman take the oath of the curse, and say to the woman) w‘the Lord make you a curse and an oath among your people, when the Lord makes your thigh fall away and your body swell. 22 May this water that brings the curse xpass into your bowels and make your womb swell and your thigh fall away.’ And the woman shall say, y‘Amen, Amen.’

23 “Then the priest shall write these curses in a book and wash them off into the water of bitterness. 24 And he shall make the woman drink the water of bitterness that brings the curse, and the water that brings the curse shall enter into her and cause bitter pain. 25 And the priest shall take the grain offering of jealousy out of the woman's hand zand shall wave the grain offering before the Lord and bring it to the altar. 26 And the priest ashall take a handful of the grain offering, as its memorial portion, and burn it on the altar, and afterward shall make the woman drink the water. 27 And when he has made her drink the water, then, if she has defiled herself and has broken faith with her husband, the water that brings the curse shall enter into her and cause bitter pain, and her womb shall swell, and her thigh shall fall away, and the woman bshall become a curse among her people. 28 But if the woman has not defiled herself and is clean, then she shall be free and shall conceive children.6 »

"I think it says she will get a hell of a bellyache and maybe even some kind of infection that would cause her to be sterile."

How would those body responses prove her infidelity?

How would she or anyone else know she was sterile?

What if she was sterile before drinking the bitter water; how would that prove anything?

So you get to ignore all of Leviticus because you're not Jewish? What else in the bible does not apply to you, Mr. Cherry Picker?
God wrote laws for His chosen people, yet did they keep them? No

God writes His Law on the heart of all people. A person doesn't have to read things in any book, or be told it is wrong.

They just "know " that what they are doing is Not right.

God has made things very clear to all man -we have all sinned and fell short of His Glory.
Jesus even made things more clear, when He said if a married person sleeps with someone other then their spouse, they commit adultery, but if you even look upon another with lust, you have already commited adultery. If you're single, its called fornication "which is just as bad in Gods eyes ".

If you hate a person for no reason, you've commited murder, but then He goes on to say, that if you have failed in one area, then you've failed in all.

The reason He does this, is to simply show us how nobody is "good enough " on their own to merit Heaven.
Only those who have the "imputed rightousness " of God is worthy.

From ourjourney.org
So, while unprincipled people prosper in the short-term, in the long-term they are headed for ruin. Jesus said that those who follow Him have a cross to bear (Matthew 16:24), and His cross involves forgoing the temporary and short-lived pleasures of a self-absorbed life. Jesus gave up earthly power, wealth, and security, even to the point of directly confronting Satan’s entrenched power in the political and religious systems and authorities of His day. Although the immediate result of His self-sacrifice was persecution, torture, and death, the lasting result was His resurrection and vindication, and the fulfillment of Israel’s hope.
Those who seek eternal life will experience some short-term pain that others may avoid. But the rewards far outweigh the costs (Proverbs 3:13-24; Matthew 6:33; 11:28-30; 19:29; John 16:33; 2 Corinthians 1:5).—Dan VanderLugt
It isn't about this life.
"Those who seek eternal life will experience some short-term pain that others may avoid. But the rewards far outweigh the costs...
It isn't about this life."

This is the only life we truly know we have. A next one...eternal life? You don't even know if that really exists. You don't know for a fact there are rewards awaiting you for bearing some figurative cross in you life.

The point is that many fundies on here try to speak for God in their favor..."god wants, feels, believes, commands, etc..." but then Sassy comes along and claims sections of the bible that were quoted by a PCer is not "relevant" to "today" and inferred that just because the bible supported something (ripping pregnant women open and smashing infants heads on rocks, I believe) doesn't mean it's okay for us to do. Fundies can't use the Bible to support their position and then claim the bible isn't "relevant" when the opposing side uses the Bible for the same purpose.

Is there a reason why Tom Tom keeps making insulting remarks about people just because they're gay?
You are almost as dense as the other proabort pagan, bitter. Not as dense but close. I have not insulted Vladdy. In fact, I have often praised his honesty as compared to the rest of you pagans. He feels a woman should kill her unborn child whenever she wants to and makes no apologies for it. He doesn't play word games like biter and claim he hates the act but agrese with the right, and all that pagan mumbo jumbo.

Vladdy is gay. He is an abnormal male as all gay men are. Lesbians are abnormal women. I don't hate them or insult them, I merely state the facts of biology. We are created with a primary purpose of mating and reproducing. Pagans hate that and willnot accept the fundamental truth of our existence. You see it as limiting your self-cenetered universe. Vladdy likes to take it from other men, that is not a normal action. I pray for Vladdy. I would even have a drink with Vladdy but I still would maintain he is defective in his sexual orientation. We all have some degree of imperfectiona as based on the perfect image of God which is Jesus Christ. We do are best but at times fall short.

By the way, Vladdy has a pretty sharp mind and tongue and can take care of himself. I would not pick on him becasue he is gay. If I did, he can ddefend himself better than you. I do point out to him at times his stameents are more about his gayness than the issue at hand.

Now back to spell school with you, pagan.

First, I think fundamentalist is probably an incorrect term to describe those of us who believe in God.

That belief means that our Father in heaven has a purpose for us other than to just exist for a short time and perish.

Anyone who does believe does have the Ten Commandments to tell us what God wants from us and Christians have that restated by Jesus for all people.

I believe the Bible is relevant though maybe not literal.

I also think that believing in God gets in the way of living the life you want so some choose not to believe. It makes all bad choices easier if you think there is no judgement.

Continue to cherry pick the bible and whine about how the world isn't how you'd like it to be.

I don't know any pro-"choicers". I know pro-choicers. BTW, I ignore a lot from anti-choicers too. You're the one whining about nastiness from the opposition, completely ignoring the provocation.
