I realize that Satan sends his children to attack the Bible.

<quoted text>Um Bill, it might help you out to realize that there is a difference between attacking your choice of belief that the Bible condemns us to "eternal Hell fire" and attacking the Bible itself. They aren't one and the same thing, in spite of your certitude to the contrary. Personally, I think that there is a lot that everyone, non-Christians and outright atheists included can learn from it. Too bad you haven't.
Yeah I could choose an English Bible that doesn't condemn gays to Hell if I could find one, but I can't find even one.

WTF does Biblically literate mean? Does it mean agreement with your opinion? Sorry, that simply doesn't fly. I most likely know a great deal more about the Bible than you do my friend. Quoting passages the way you do proves you know nothing about the Bible.
It means you are Biblically illiterate.

FAIL.
The real KJV was a translation of the Latin Vulgate which proves you don't actually know what you are talking about. The Revised KJV is mostly a plagiarized SRV 1952. Prejudice sells Bible to fools.
Irrelevant. They all condemn you to the eternal fire.

Quoting out of context is EXACTLY the same as deliberately lying. Then too, deliberately quoting a known MIS-translation is also lying...
Don't you get tired of making up your lies? Tell us the truth, that you are Biblically illiterate.

Deliberately continuing to quote known MIS-translations is a form of lying.
No LEGITIMATE translation of the Bible condemns homosexuality.
Stop lying to yourself. They ALL condemn you to the eternal Hell.

Precious and Grace.
Billy Gibbons said Precious looked like her face caught on fire and somebody tried to stomp it out with a track shoe.

Forgot the music.
Tres Hombres is a brilliant album. I only knew their MTV hits 'til a few years ago when I heard 'La Grange' in a bar.

I also luv QOTSA's cover version of Precious and Grace 2...

You need to first understand who the Law was for????
Hebrews 7:18-19
18 The *former regulation* is set aside because it was weak and useless
19 *(for the law made nothing perfect),* and a better hope is introduced, by which we draw near to God.
*former regulation.....The Law - Old Testament....IS set aside....
WHY???
because it was WEAK and USELESS......
WHY???
*for the Law made NOTHING PERFECT......
**********
Now, go down to this verse:
Hebrews 7:22
22 Because of this oath,*****Jesus has become the guarantor of a better covenant.*****
Jesus HAS BECOME the GUARANTOR of a....WHAT?????
BETTER COVENANT.....NEW TESTAMENT!!!!!!!!!!
So, your God needed two tries to get things right? Couldn't just start with a perfect covenant, eh? Seems rather sloppy for an omniscient omnipotent supernatural deity.

You are VERY Biblically illiterate. That's why you avoid discussing Scripture. Your illiteracy is gaping.

Sweetie, you and your choice of morally repugnant beliefs should not be confused with the Bible, they are not now, nor have they ever been, one and the same thing. If you really want to pray that I have been sent by "Satan" to "attack the Bible", you go right ahead and good luck, because neither is true.

Hick, Hick, Hick!

You know well enough that EVERY Bible translation, ancient Bible text, and Judeo-Christian tradition condemns and prohibits your lifestyle choice.

If you felt good about your choices, Hick, you wouldn't be here trolling Bible threads!
