Atheism requires as much faith as religion? bearvspuma : The only problem with this rationalization is that ita s assuming all athiests are so because theya re intelligent in the ways of science and reasoning and all people that believe in a form of god are unintelligent.

P.S. I'm particularly partial to Catcher, it's his American Express card. Any insight into how I can obtain Buck's pin number?

Hell yes IANS thinks that. He calls it "the church" and swears that all Christian churches teach the exact same thing. It's ludicrous.
I half suspect he has kind of sold himself on that idea because he knows there would be no practical way to identify and isolate the individual churches he would consider as 'guilty' and is willing to sacrifice the good ones to get the bad ones as part of an overall good to his way of thinking. I can understand the temptation but I think for a goal to be truly noble it can't take those shortcuts. And including pedophilia is simply going too far. If he wants to attack ideas not people then do just that. Attack the idea that certain things people excuse in the name of religion is bad and those specific subjects. Don't just cast a wide net. It isn't fair and I don't even think it'd be as effective. People would embrace change when a bad way if thinking is challenged. Not nearly so much with going after everything an entire group because some people in it think that way

14. What then could I do when God arises? And when He calls me to account, what will I answer Him.''
----------
Slaves could complain against their masters and masters were accountable to God for their treatment of their slaves. But I suppose all that is meaningless detail to you also.
You folks are so phony it is sickening. All the slavery going on in the world today and you only whine and bitch about slavery 3000 years ago in a far away place.

If initiating every exchange for 2 years and almost never not posting to me whenever I post is a passing curiosity then they probably have an extra mailman that comes to your house just to deliver the restraining orders:)

Lol. In practice I agree. But then my question to RR is: there must be a difference since Jesus was quoted as specifically making a distinction. So what's the distinction?

Ya but He didn't say that.
And no purfesir of University gets to rewrite it.
Yes he did say it in Matthew

5:17 Think not that I am come to destroy the law, or the prophets: I am not come to destroy, but to fulfill. 18: Whosoever therefore shall break one of these least commandments, and shall teach men so, he shall be called the least in the kingdom of heaven, but whosoever shall do and teach them, the same shall he be called great in the kingdom of heaven.

Matthew 10 :1 And when he had called unto him his twelve disciples, he gave them power against unclean spirits, to cast them out, and to heal all manner of sickness and all manner of disease.
5 These twelve Jesus sent forth, and commanded them, saying ,Go NOT into the way of the Gentiles, and into any city of the Samaritians enter ye not? 6: But go rather to the lost sheep of the house of Israel.

Jesus was a Jew and meant only to preach to the Jews. And to uphold Jewish law.

<quoted text> That was more related to that time. Non Hebrew could marry or convert both meaning an elevation in status. Slavery is obsolete and impractical since it causes more problems for the culture as a whole. In other words it is a burden. Slaves had to be fed, housed, children had to be cared for. There was always the possibility of revolt. That meant a large army was required.
So if slavery could be made more efficient then it would be moral again?

Wow.
Your question about Jesus and the law is valid and I think I will see if anybody else wants to take a stab at it. Even though the answers or responses would not convince anyone here.

Thanks. Again, if Jesus went out of his way to make a distinction, then there must be one, right?

Personally, my interpretation is that Jesus was presenting himself as the Jewish messiah, and that is what he is referencing. But then you have the problem that he did not fulfill the Hebrew prophesies of who the Jewish messiah was supposed to be and what he was supposed to do. Which, of course, is why there are still Jews.
