All cut for more or less the same cloth just a different color and length.
The Christian view that all intercourse outside marriage is immoral was based upon the view that all sexual intercourse, even within marriage, is regrettable.
A view of this sort, which goes against biological facts, can only be regarded by some people as a morbid aberration.
The fact that it is embedded in Christian ethics has made Christianity throughout its whole history a force tending towards mental disorders and unwholesome views of life.
Crimen Sollicitationis look it up!
The appalling 39-page document, Crimen Sollicitationis, was issued worldwide in 1962 by then Cardinal, Ratzinger, outlining procedures to protect priests accused of sexual abusing minors and sexually propositioning penitents, and how to conceal these violations.
As you know, there is a difference between Catholicism and Protestantism within the Christian faith. This split occurred when Martin Luther nailed his 95 theses to the church in Wittenburg, Germany, against the corruption in the Catholic church. Essentially, Martin Luther was calling them out on their heresies in teachings, and corruptions in the community. When somebody in power is called to task on their behavior, it's resented. Sure enough, Martin Luther found himself excommunicated and branded an outlaw.

Sadly, Catholicism still tries to speak for all of Christianity, even though not everyone considers Catholicism the legitimate voice of Christianity.

Sexual pleasure isn't a sin. The reason that sex is supposed to stay within marriage is to bond a husband and wife physically, spiritually, and emotionally. It's supposed to protect the wife from being used as a physical object for the arbitrary enjoyment of biological sensations by others.

Our pastor stood in the pulpit one Sunday and in his sermon he mentioned the word "sex", but not in a negative manner. There was an audible, collective gasp of shock and apprehension within the congregation. He stopped his sermon and looked at everyone for a few seconds. Then he said something I'll never forget. Paraphrased, it went something like this:

"What? I'm not supposed to say the word 'sex' from the pulpit? How do you think you all came to be here? You didn't blink into existence 30 seconds ago. Didn't God say to Adam and Eve go forth and multiply? If He didn't then why are you here anyway? And if he did, aren't we obeying His instructions to procreate? Sex is great so long as it is within marriage to protect the sanctity of marriage, and prevent exploitation of our fellow man."

Awesome huh?

You seem to think organic life is removed from those laws. Odd for an evolutionist to think that.

I read that last night about 20 minutes after you posted it.
Let's say I was too stunned by it to post then.
KK, everything physical follows the laws of physics in this physical world.
You are truly very daft. Mechanical and biological laws are two different sets of laws, one governs the behavior of mechanical objects, the other governs behavior of biological organisms. It cannot be made any simpler than that, and if you still don't understand the difference then you have only demonstrated a total lack of education and intelligence.

<quoted text>I'm glad that a message from the bible was able to inspire you, and make your life better.
If people need God in their life to make them better, then by all means...have God in your life.
I respect that, and would never want that taken from anyone.
BUT, being an Agnostic, I must add....so often do "believers" give themselves credit for their won change...they give that credit to God, when it was actually their own inner strength the whole time.
My point is WHY would God help you resolve issues....but NOT be there for the kids at Sandy Hook, Oklahoma Tornado? Boston Bombing? Starving, beaten, and molested children?
If God took the time in YOUR life to ensure you receive a very important message, why not do the same in dire situations involving innocent children?
I guess that's why I'd never worship or understand the supposed Christian God.
I mean, anything that would qualify as a God would understand this...is that really a GOD worthy of worshipping?
Isaiah 55:8-9

8 “For my thoughts are not your thoughts,
neither are your ways my ways,”
declares the Lord.
9 “As the heavens are higher than the earth,
so are my ways higher than your ways
and my thoughts than your thoughts.

There's no such thing as god. After you decided to lie about god being real, its your job to prove what you claim.

But you're a coward with no proof, so instead, you'll just type your gods name in capitals in the blind hope that somebody here gives a f*ck about your personal hallucination.
