Then Jesus told him,“Because you have seen me, you have believed; ~~~~~blessed are those who have not seen and yet have believed.”~~~~~
That answers faith in Jesus; it does not answer faith in certain doctrinal stands

It follows though that any belief that contradicts the Bible is false.
Remind me...still no legally valid justifications for prohibiting same-sex marriage? Great.

Again I have to appeal to th fact that you can't adequately know What the Bible says unless you include Who it was said to, What was said and HOW it was said and waht that would entail in the cultrue of that time. If you aren't willing to do this how can you ever know whether something is in error, outright heresy? Personl revelation? Many people have done horrible things alledging god told them to do so. Personal conscience? Many people have done done hoffible things, upheld horrible things, sincerely believing it was the moral thing to do. The fact that the Bible has been interpreted in terms of current cultures and understandings is well-known. There's only two things you can make of this: 1. you don't care and believe that the prupose of the Bible is to be used to advance whatever agenda that is advantageous to you, or, 2. that the meaning of the Bible is an ever-revealing process. If you are the first, you're not fit to be the arbiter of ANYTHING. If you believe the second, how do you know that in these times it is't being revealed to you that your exclusion of gays and lesbians as exempt from the kingdom of god is in error?

Those who are in the realm of the flesh cannot please God.
You, however, are not in the realm of the flesh but are in the realm of the Spirit, if indeed the Spirit of God lives in you.
And if anyone does not have the Spirit of Christ, they do not belong to Christ.
clothed yourself with Christ....
So you don't have any flesh, eh? You must look really scarey. How do you keep from getting moldy?

Again, I'm not the etymologist, so in the question as to whether you might win an argument with me, the answer is probably yes; in the question as to whether you could win the arguement against an actual eymologist scholar-NO, especially if all you can offer is your current translation and current understanding. I think the real question that should be answered is the question I already prosed to you.

Are you obeying Jesus' COMMANDS in the New Testament....and I am NOT talking about the 10 commandments....
So, you are talking about where Jesus said that to be good, one must obey all 613 commandments? Or where he said that not one letter of the Laws would ever be changed?

Not true. Since I am not one of the children of Israel, He WOULD have to get my permission (my conversion to His worship) before He has ANY say about my behavior.

It is clear that you reject NT salvation.
That's because there is no such thing as NT salvation.

You're promoting the OT when God commanded them to execute homosexuals?
No LEGITIMATE translation of the Bible condemns homosexuality. The Bible CELEBRATES the marriage of David and Johnathan.

"the everlasting fire"
Matthew 18:8 (NKJV)
8 If your hand or foot causes you to sin, cut it off and cast it from you. It is better for you to enter into life lame or maimed, rather than having two hands or two feet, to be cast into the everlasting fire.
I am not calling the God of the Bible a liar. I am calling YOU a liar, and I have posted proof of that fact. Why do YOU persist in calling the God of the Bible a liar? Or do you want to pretend that Jeremiah was not a prophet? Was the book of Jeremiah just some random scribblings of a deluded pseudo-prophet that got tossed into the Bible by mistake?

You are Biblically illiterate. Jesus is God.
"a child is born" "a Son" "Mighty God"
Isaiah 9:6 (NKJV)
6 For unto us a Child is born, Unto us a Son is given; And the government will be upon His shoulder. And His name will be called Wonderful, Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace.
The word you have translated as "God" is <'el> which is NOT always used as a term for a god, as in the example from Genesis:

Genesis 31:29 It is in the power <'el> of my hand to do you hurt...

Laban to Jacob, speaking of his own hand. Are you saying that Laban was a God? There are other examples as well. The verse in Isaiah is NOT a reference to a God, but to a mighty LORD, a temporal ruler.

Read it IN CONTEXT, which for Isa 9:6 certainly includes 9:7. Jesus NEVER sat on the Throne of David, he NEVER established any kingdom, and justice and judgment have been just as lacking after his death as they were before. That verse has nothing to do with Jesus.

There is no original ancient works from Homer, Plato, Caesar or Aristotle either yet the copies we have of their works show what the their original works were. For the NT, its even better.
Ignorant? Or willfully delusional?

The earliest surviving copies of any of the books of the NT are from centuries after they were written. And of all the surviving copies and fragments, virtually no two agree word for word with each other. AT BEST, there errors are mere copy errors or misspellings, but sometimes, there is serious disagreement with doctrinal text.

The earliest copies of Mark end at 16:8, everything after that was added later...

Hear how NUTS that sounds!
The sacrifice and atonement soteriologies are regressive heresies, dearheart.
I have a teen. It doesn't sound all THAT nuts...
