I don't recall Christ's amazement over a loving heart the way He was marveled by the faith of a Roman Centurian (Matt. 8:10).

You go around all day repeating that to yourself!
One of these days, you might find your Self actually giving an answer.
Nope, I know what God said. It is you looking for a way around it to condone your sin dujuor.

I do.
I know Scripture.
I know our tradition.
God gave me a brain for reason.
You don't think you need a brain or a heart..........
This is laughable. You know less scripture than a 5th grade Sunday School class.

You know your tradition which has been tossed to the wind as the need to justify sin has increased.

Your brain is incapable of putting together a coherent argument for why you believe what you believe.

You are still deceived.

Well, then... You have listened and not heard.
And you have read. But you have not comprehended.
And you have been conned into believing, wrongly. But, you have yet to discern why you persist in your self-righteous belief in the errors of bigotry and hypocrisy which were left in scripture for you to overcome.
As a result, you believe yourself to be incapable of reasoning and dwelling in the Living core of Loving discipleship with the very talents that God gave you.
I love it. You used to at least acknowledge the possibility that in trying to discern God's will in this matter, you might be wrong. Your arrogance knows no bounds. The mantle of infallibility has now fallen onto your shoulders and any deviations from your divine inspirations are clear error. All hail Ken who is so in tune with the mind of the Father as to be One with Him and our Lord.

A degree in Theology - 5th grade Sunday School

LMAO!

Reading Scripture in Hebrew, Aramaic and Greek - 5th grade Sunday School

LOL!!

Working in Tel Aviv - 5th grade Sunday School

Oh, TA, why bother coming back if you're going to make yourself look like the hateful bigoted ass you are!

Now we know you have a 5th grade Sunday school education - whatever that might be for a LMBS.

Love always wins.

You continue to tell people God hates them and I'll continue to remind them GOD LOVES THEM!

;-)

Those who do not love, do not know God; because God is love....

So you worship someone you don't even know?

LMAO!!

PS He doesn't live in a Book, that might be your first problem with Scripture

The second is your lack of understanding

The third is you lack of using your heart OR your brain

WOW - You had to go to Sunday School only once a week! We had classes every day on 'the faith' in school. They even made us read, talk and write about the 'readings' on top of wearing uniforms. SADIST!

LOL!!!....

Idiot!

My post was given to show YOU how arrogant and self-righteous YOU have become! The fact that you have taken me seriously shows just how seriously you are willing to take your own infallibility!

Dummy!

And you are still doing it!

No, George. I do not claim to be right anymore of the time than Rush Limbaugh claims to be right.

I don't take you seriously at all. I have long since concluded you are a joke - a fraud - a fake - and a heretic. Taking you seriously would imply that there was merit to your opinions and thoughts.

The more I read of what you write, the less reasonable you appear to be.

It is YOU who are the fake. If you are actually a lawyer, your clients are in big trouble AFTER they take you on as their counselor, instead of before!

No. I stick by my post #60 above. You have neither read nor have you comprehended and you have not listened. Your blind faith has led you into a blind alley of misconstruance and compounded misconceptions.

In post #52 you go one way. In post #67, you go the other. You miss the mark both ways and show yourself unwilling to use your head.

Sorry, George.
