My main point is, that if there is a God, and I believe there is, and that God of All things considers a bat a bird, then it is. Period!
No if you and cp, and many bible scholars, scientist, etc.... wish to straight out God on this petty matter, then please do so, when you meet Him.
Out of a the books of the bible, you guys argue over very petty issues.
I suggest you decide whether or not God is real first, and He will have no problem showing you all things.
Maybe I'm missing something here but just common sense alone would tell you that a God who created all things can choose what those things are referred to.
My understanding is that the bat is included with the birds because it has wings.

The Hebrews probably weren't up on zoology.

That's mine as well.:)

I have bats that fly around at dusk in my back yard, right after the purple martins bed down, and it's hard to tell them apart sometimes.

Today there's more and more websights, mainly ran by atheist that point out what they see as discrepancies in God's word, but they are just grasping at staws.

Like I was -I didn't want to believe, becouse it meant that I was in trouble.
thanks be to God, that I now do.

Neither was god apparently.

Gtown-y believes everything in the bible because it's "gods word".
Bats are birds.

Anyone can read any book, but when it comes to "seeing" the spiritual applications, within Gods Word - one must be enlightened by God.

The first man created did come from dust, but why is that so hard to fathom when you probably believe we evolved from slime?

Everything we see, touch, whatever came from the ground.
Buildings, computers, high tech devices, cars, you name it .... it all came out of the ground in one way, shape, or form.

People are slaves to Sin.

Jesus came to set us free from Sin and shame, and in return those who have been set free "should" want to be inslaved in His way / love.

As you know many slaves in America were treated well enough, that even after they were legally set free, they willingly chose to stay.

God uses the lesser folks of this life "the ones most don't consider very smart "to confound the "wise".

Wise in their own mind.

The first time I really looked at Scripture, I hated what it said. Although it had me pegged 100%. Yet it did begin to make me think about what if?
what if I'm wrong about the whole God thing?

I was.

Thanks be to God, He found me, so that I could find His Grace and Mercy.

Question? If God is real, and judges rightly, are you ok with Him judging you one day?

Leviticus 11:13-19
New King James Version (NKJV)
13 ¬ĎAnd these you shall regard as an abomination among the birds; they shall not be eaten, they are an abomination: the eagle, the vulture, the buzzard, 14 the kite, and the falcon after its kind; 15 every raven after its kind, 16 the ostrich, the short-eared owl, the sea gull, and the hawk after its kind; 17 the little owl, the fisher owl, and the screech owl; 18 the white owl, the jackdaw, and the carrion vulture; 19 the stork, the heron after its kind, the hoopoe, and the bat.
Not lazy, well maybe at times, but I was at work on a short break. Again bats are in the same category as birds,within that verse, so what?

Plus the NKJV came out in when I was 12 years old. Niv has different versions, of itself, so one should ask themselves why.

I believe every word of God is inspired by God, and is very important.
Most new versions do not, and sway it according to what they think.

Just one of many is the verse in kj -that says "little children how hard it is, for those who TRUST IN RICHES,to enter the kingdom of God.

Nkj - says "little children how hard it is to enter the kingdom of God.

John 3:16 -kj says only begotten Son.
Others say -only son.

I am a son of God "through Christ Jesus ",but there is only one begotten Son.

You fu**ing coward. It took me a couple minutes to read ALL of lev 11.
Bats are not birds, period. No feathers, no eggs, no cloaca, produce milk, etc. Birds are not mammals.Every biblical language has distinct words for bats and birds, because even primitive people know the difference.
You said if ONE word was incorrect, you'd have to reevaluate everything. I gave you two. But what does it matter? Religion is your addiction, and arguing with a junkie is fruitless.
<quoted text>
Why so much hostility bro?
Have I ever cursed you, or called you anything except for a cpeter?

Yes, I said if the word of God contains even one word that's wrong, then one would need to rethink the whole book, but what you fail to "see", is I don't line up Gods Word with what any man "including myself " thinks about anything. I line up, what I think or feel about anything, with "what saith the Lord ".

If that makes me??????? Whatever??? Then so be it, but cpeter , even though I may not concern myself with bats/birds, or how a rabbit chews on things, or how many fleas were on Pharaoh's dog, it doesn't mean I'm a spiritual retard.

There are things I careless about, and there are other things I will go to my grave believing.

Just one of many, many, things that God's salvation offered me, was a peace that passes all understanding.

Plus love for others.

Believe it or not cpeter, I love you - you, a gay man, who by your own admission has been with many many men...

I care for your soul, and do pray you come to know the saving grace of God, and are given a peace that I, and you both know you deep down, desire to have.

If that is what you take from the Bible instead of the important words and meanings, that is your choice.

And who says your outlook is right and his is wrong?

A million people will read the bible and come out with a million different "outlooks", so in the end the bible does nothing to clarify what an alleged God wants for/from his people.

The bible is extremely obtuse/symbolic/metaphorical and just plain confusing. Why wouldn't a God choose to be be more direct and straightforward so the readers of his word would understand, universally, exactly what he meant?

<quoted text>In order to answer this question, I would first have to know the parameters for which you believe yourself prepared.
If your judgment turns out to have been wrong, have you prepared yourself to be judged wrongly?
Just checking...
Not necessarily. One could judge righteously and without hypocrisy but still be ultimately wrong in their judgement. Man can and does make mistakes. I guess the fact that I recognize that man is not mistake proof means I am prepared for the fact that there is a possibility I may be judged wrongly.
I am prepared to be judged righteously.

No you don't. You call it like you see it, at least critically, only when it involves someone you disagree with. Had you truly called it liked you see it you would have called Peter on his belief that HIS interpretation was the only correct one.
You disagree with his interpretation. What does that mean? It means you think you have a better one and that too is as self serving as you say CP is.
In this instance there is actually very little interpretation involved. When one looks at the context, it is clear that God does NOT forbid judging. A six year old would conclude the same based on the context.

John 7:24 -

"Judge not according to the appearance, but judge righteous judgment."

<quoted text>None of which mitigates the fact that the use of fossil fuels is daily contributing to the destruction of this fragile ecosystem we call 'Earth'...and none of which means we can't stop using them tomorrow.
As a species, we choose not to...doesn't mean it's impossible.
The least we can do is curtail their use, and substitute non-polluting energy for as many units of fossil fuels as we possibly can.
As a species, we're not willing to do that - and it spells our extinction. I would suspect sooner, rather than later.
I guess you're okay with that.
No I'm not OK with it. But at least I am not a hypocrite who pretends I'm above and not part of the bad stewardship of our environment because I might have a wood burning stove and a few solar panels.

Yes you are. You've YET to address even a single one of the questions I posed regarding that context.
The intent is clear because I UNDERSTAND ENGLISH. You want it to mean something else. Juries judge evidence, teachers judge work done, employers judge ability. They do not judge the people themselves unless they are exceeding their authority.
Juries judge more than just evidence. They also judge the credibility and believability of witnesses. Teachers who administer IQ tests are judging an individual's level of intelligence which is an inherent part of their person that does not change. Employers, if they're smart, rightfully also judge character in addition to just ability.
You can't separate an individual's inherent qualities from the individual. If you judge such qualities you are STILL judging....no matter what you believe.

Are YOU smart enough to interpret this :

"Judge not according to the appearance, but judge righteous judgment."
John 7:24

I know a 6 year old knows that if God is instructing you HOW to judge he CANNOT at the same time, be forbidding you to judge.
Are YOU smart enough to know that???

You want so much to be able to tell someone that they are violating their God's directive that you create a totally incorrect interpretation. THAT is self serving.
You think your judgment of me means ANYTHING to me at all?
Yes I do. Otherwise you'd never respond. Your arrogance, warped sense of self importance, and your obsession with being perceived as always being right, precludes you from ignoring.

Are you saying that you don't understand what God wants? God didn't write the Bible. And I expect that you are talking about the Old Testament which is comprised of oral histories passed down by the Hebrews. As a Christian, I believe that Jesus made everything very clear. If I was Jewish, I would also find the Jewish laws confusing.
