The constitution allows for freedom of religion--for everyone, not just jews and christians. The government itself is secular and cannot establish an official faith. Thus, we are not a judeo-christian nation. Not to mention that jews were treated pretty shabbily fo much of our historry by christians.

Hey,bitohoneybooboo AKA Bitler Thank you, Mr. Speaker.
Mr. Speaker, on April 6th of this year, the President of the United States traveled halfway around the globe, and in the nation of Turkey, essentially proclaimed that the United States was not a Judeo-Christian nation.
I don’t challenge his right to do that or dispute the fact that it is what he believes, but I wish he had asked and answered two questions when he did that. The first question was whether or not we ever considered ourselves a Judeo-Christian nation, and the second one was, if we did, what was the moment in time where we ceased to be so? If asked the first question, Mr. Speaker, you would find that the very first act of the first congress in the United States was to bring in a minister and have congress led in prayer, and afterwards read four chapters out of the bible. A few years later, when we unanimously declared our independence, we made certain that the rights in there were given to us by our creator. When the Treaty of Paris was signed in 1783, it ended the revolutionary war and birthed this nation. The signers of that document made clear that it began with this phrase,“in the name of the most holy and undivided trinity.”
When our constitution was signed, the signers made sure that they punctuated the end of it by saying,“in the year of our lord, 1787”, and 100 years later in the supreme court case of Holy Trinity Church vs. United States, the Supreme Court indicated, after recounting the long history of faith in this country, that we were a Christian nation. President George Washington, John Adams, Thomas Jefferson, Andrew Jackson, Abraham Lincoln, Teddy Roosevelt, Woodrow Wilson, Herbert Hoover, Franklin Roosevelt, Harry Truman, John Kennedy, and Ronald Reagan, all disagreed with the President’s comments, and indicated how the bible and Judeo-Christian principles were so important to this nation. Franklin Roosevelt even led this nation in a six-minute prayer before the invasion of perhaps the greatest battle in history, in the Invasion of Normandy, and asked for God’s protection. After that war, congress came together and said,“Where are we going to put our trust?” It wasn’t in our weapons systems, or our economy, or our great decisions here. It was in God we trust, which is emboldened directly behind you. So, if in fact we were a nation that was birthed on those Judeo-Christian principles, what was that moment in time when we ceased to so be?
It wasn’t when a small group of people succeeded in taking prayer out of our schools, or when they tried to cover up the word referencing God on the Washington Monument. Or, when they tried to stop our veterans from having flag-folding ceremonies at their funerals on a voluntary basis because they mentioned God, or even when they tried in the new visitor’s center to change the national motto, and to refuse to put “in God we trust” in there. No, Mr. Speaker, it wasn’t any of those times because they can rip that word off of all of our buildings and still those Judeo-Christian principles are so interwoven in a tapestry of freedom and liberty, that to begin to unravel one is to unravel the other.
That’s why we have filed the Spiritual Heritage Resolution, to help reaffirm that great history of faith that we have in this nation and to say to those individual’s who have yielded to the temptation of concluding that we are no longer a Judeo-Christian nation, to come back....

Here's the deal, if you can asow me in your translation where it says, under the cover of some other word that the woman is pregnant, then I will agree with you. It must be there for your translation to make sense.
It's a given if she miscarried, she was pregnant. The translation for "rot" includes abortion.
Ink wrote:
<quoted text>You never answered how it is possible for a non pregnant woman to abort.
Never made that claim.

You never answered how sterility could prove infidelity.

You'd rather keep going round and round, applying the faith-based view when it suits you and the secular view when it suits you.

AyakaNeo rightly pointed out that the bitter water would only affect the guilty woman, even if the innocent woman were also pregnant. That is the faith based view -- that God would reveal the truth.

The secular view is the bitter water would affect both guilty and innocent women the same, if both were pregnant. That is the view you are arguing.

I've argued (in the past) the husband better have been damn sure his wife cheated, else he may be forcing her to miscarry a potential hier. That goes with the secular view.

I've already said the only sure test that could prove a woman cheated is if the priest took a swab from her vagina and found another man's DNA. Again, secular view.

I think we've exhausted all "what ifs", yet you still pretend the translation does not exist, even though I've shown it to you several times.

I'm bored with it.

I suppose there's really no use in getting into the 7 cays creation question. You'd dismiss the translations without explanation, as you've done here, and I'd be just wasting my time.

Yes, agree, STO. Your last point is very interesting. I'd bet the possibilities are endless regarding full term pregnancies that never would have been had an earlier pregnancy not ended prior to term (either induced or spontaneous). All those people are still God's people, right? In the same sense that they were known in the womb, too. Right?
(the things that make you go hmmmm)
"All those people are still God's people, right? In the same sense that they were known in the womb, too. Right?"

Absolutely.

Some Christians believe the Good Lord chose to spare them from the harshness of the world. That is not doctrinal, mind you.

Safe to say that you probably don't think that you have experienced a miracle or had something happen in your life that has no plausible explanation. There are lots of people out there who have, me included. They will tell you that there is a God and there is answer to prayer. I don't blame you for not being able to understand what you can't see.
It's safe to say you are wrong.... and I think you may be drinking too much. I was talking to you about how you expect to see lost loved ones in the afterlife. Ramble on.

A christian is a person who have had the ownership of their soul transfered from satan to God.
They are the children of God, through a spuritual adoption.
Yet they still have their sinful flesh.
A christian can commit any sin that a non christian can, but the difference is they are dealt with by their new Father, God.
He punishes His children here on earth, and although He is merciful and longsuffering, He is just and loves His children.
The sinfilled flesh all people wear will be with them till death.
It is not subject to Gods law and can't be.
It will eat itself to death, drink itself to death, sex itself to death, etc......
The more you give it, the more it wants.
Just looking upon another with lust, is commiting adultery.
Many christians put things in front of God, even some put their ministry before God.
Yet when we die, it is our soul that is either saved or not.
Thanks for a good laugh, whacko.

Is there any reason why you are a christian?

Can you tell me why you feel being a christian is a good thing?

Sure I get it wrong at times, as we all do, but I will addmit it.

All I've seen from you so far, is how you call other christians names while missquoting the bible,so again I'll ask what happens to those who die without being saved?

Living a "good " life is important,but the bible says only the Rightous will go to Heaven.
Now knowing that both those who claim to be christians sin, even the best of the best are not perfect, then if there is a God, and He demands rightousness, then that cannot come from ones self.
It must be imputed.
I'm just asking that you question everything you think you know.

It is not about how "good " a person is, it is a position of being a child of God or not that counts.

Perhaps look up the "good test ",to see how you do, if God will judge us by the 10 commandments, how would you do?

It goes back to have you ever told lie? What do you call someone who lies?
stolen anything?
Used Gods name in vain?
Lusted?
Gossip?

We view bad things and good things one way.
God views them another.

Why are you so ignorant? Responsibility free? How so? I do for my kids and my husband, I get up and go to work where I often go the extra mile to help coworkers, I adopt dogs that I then take care of for years, I donate/volunteer my time, etc. I deal with responsibilities everyday. Like many other women/mothers I put other people's needs ahead of my own each and every day.
Can you actually prove there is a god, soul or eternal damnation? Then why should I take your rants and your mythologies seriously?
What "pagan ways" do I "promote"?
Do you have ANY clue what you are babbling about...ever?
Your own words condemn your soul. You speak of "I". It is all about 'you'. What 'you' do, what 'you' accomplish, who 'you' help. See a pattern?

Lose the "I' and gain your soul. You can't understand that, as your pagan ways are your chains.

You can attack me all you want but I am secure in my belief and the knowledge that my salvation is assured.

All the "you" achievements do not make up for supporting the death of one unborn child.

Thank you. It's more like I want my life to have had some positive impact on my survivor's lives.
I had an epiphany one day some years ago. I was shocked when I was reading the paper and saw the obituary of a friend I had kind of lost touch with. She died young of cancer. I felt compelled to make the trip to visit her wake and pay my respects. Instead of a casket with her body the family had set up easels full of photos of her with her friends and family. She was laughing and happy in every photo. Instead of funeral home music they were playing the songs she had loved. People were laughing and telling stories about her...but the most stunning thing was the line of people wanting to pass by and see the family went all the way out of the funeral home and out into the parking lot. This woman obviously impacted many many people in a very positive way.
That's the kind of person I decided I wanted to be.
Your quest will be hard since you have not allowed God into your heart.

The flesh is not subject to God's Law and "can't be", ya say?

You got it entirely wrong, again -- the glaring opposite of what the Word teaches. I mean, c'mon, dude, this is Christianity 101. I could use a lot of different references.

Read Romans 7

Here's a part of it:

5 For when we were in the flesh, the motions of sins, which were by the law, did work in our members to bring forth fruit unto death.

6 But now we are delivered from the law, that being dead wherein we were held; that we should serve in newness of spirit, and not in the oldness of the letter.

7 What shall we say then? Is the law sin? God forbid. Nay, I had not known sin, but by the law: for I had not known lust, except the law had said, Thou shalt not covet.

8 But sin, taking occasion by the commandment, wrought in me all manner of concupiscence. For without the law sin was dead.

9 For I was alive without the law once: but when the commandment came, sin revived, and I died.

10 And the commandment, which was ordained to life, I found to be unto death.

11 For sin, taking occasion by the commandment, deceived me, and by it slew me.

12 Wherefore the law is holy, and the commandment holy, and just, and good.

Not only have I not misquoted the Bible, I tell exactly what Chapter and Verse it is, and even copy and paste it, while you speak out of your ass and get it wrong over and over and over.

You don't just "duhderp - get it wrong"; you teach falsely.

I will correct you whenever I see it because it's not right that you mislead Christians and non-Christians, alike.
