Given the ongoing debate about same-sex marriage, it is time I looked at the two Testaments to remind myself why belief is so hard for me to embrace.

Matthew 3:

43 “You have heard that our fathers were told,‘Love your neighbor — and hate your enemy.’ 44 But I tell you, love your enemies! Pray for those who persecute you! 45 Then you will become children of your Father in heaven. For he makes his sun shine on good and bad people alike, and he sends rain to the righteous and the unrighteous alike. 46 What reward do you get if you love only those who love you? Why, even tax-collectors do that! 47 And if you are friendly only to your friends, are you doing anything out of the ordinary? Even the Goyim do that! 48 Therefore, be perfect, just as your Father in heaven is perfect.

OR

Matthew 22:

37 He told him,“‘You are to love Adonai your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your strength.’ 38 This is the greatest and most important mitzvah. 39 And a second is similar to it,‘You are to love your neighbor as yourself.’ 40 All of the Torah and the Prophets are dependent on these two mitzvot.”

If you loved your neighbor, you would warn him of the hellfire that follows a homosexual lifetsyle choice.

If you were a Christian, you would not perjure Paul.

I think it is important to manage dialogue; In here there seems to be many people who can't.

What do you say guys, there might not be point to have a dialogue with people who can't dialogue?

Isaiah 14:9-11 Hell from beneath is moved for thee to meet thee at thy coming: it
stirreth up the dead for thee, even all the chief ones of the earth; it hath
raised up from their thrones all the kings of the nations. All they shall
speak and say unto thee, Art thou also become weak as we? art thou become
like unto us? Thy pomp is brought down to the grave, and the noise of thy
viols: the worm is spread under thee, and the worms cover thee.

It is no surprise to anyone that you repeatedly post the misconceptions that you do. Your idea of loving your neighbor is to bury him under a heap of guilt and shame, blaming him for the hatred and disgust that YOU hold dear.

You are a blatant hypocrite and a bigot, attached to an outdated view of a segregationist, dying "Christianity" that is not at all Christian.

In fact, you live in an Old Testament mentality, selectively holding to parts of the Levitical code that you have found to agree with your negative bias.

As to not perjuring scripture, you are a joke! You perjure the entire reason for scripture. If today were two thousand years ago and the place were Jerusalem, you would be one of the crowd calling for His crucifixion.

Isaiah 14:15-19 Yet thou shalt be brought down to hell, to the sides of the pit. They that
see thee shall narrowly look upon thee, and consider thee, saying, Is this the
man that made the earth to tremble, that did shake kingdoms; That made the
world as a wilderness, and destroyed the cities thereof; that opened not the
house of his prisoners?...But thou art cast out of thy grave like an
abominable branch, and as the raiment of those that are slain, thrust
through with a sword, that go down to the stones of the pit; as a carcase
trodden under feet.

<quoted text>You of course lie.
The New Testament is more emphatic in condemning your homosexual lifestyle choice than the Old.
EVERY denomination that waffles on the Bible's many condemnations of all homosexual behavior is in steep decline. Nearly all who support the Bible's commands are growing.
Scripture says unrepentant homosexuals will suffer eternal consequences. If you believed in the Bible and loved your neighbor, you would not be encouraging them to remain on a path that leads to Eternal punishment!
The real point is all about why any reasonable, thinking person should accept as truth the Famous Five, Hardy Boys, bible/scriptures, Harry Potter or the (bullshit) da Vinci Code.

For the sake of clarity I have placed them in descending order of value.

RevKen seems to have problems with name-calling. When he doesn't manage to behave respectfully, and he shows with his behaviour that he isn't very good, why should I listen to him?

Why should I listen to people who behave badly.

The same with Corbin who calls RevKen "TheVeryUnRevKen"; Why doesn't he just argue for his view?

Respect to everybody also to RevKen and Corbin.

You owe me an excuse for behaviour before we eventually start to debate. We are not in agreement about the debate-rules, I think?
