Corporations **are** soulless-- and your bible agrees.

Did not your bible command you to *never* put your trust in things made by man?

Corporations are the ultimate in man-made...

... sure, sure-- there may be greedy, super-wealthy people at the top-of-the-top, paying no taxes of any merit...

... so what? Did they **earn** that position? Most did not... they inherited their wealth & power, such that they knew who to talk to to get those "jobs"...

Not JUST the government--which already HAS that power.

But put it all open-- so that NOBODY'S wealth is secretly stashed off-shore in illegal accounts...

THEN?

We can vote for people based on real evaluation of who they are.

Nothing wrong with the 10 commandments???

SERIOUSLY?

Get real: is there a prohibition to RAPE in there? No?

How about a command to NEVER own slaves...? No?

Okay, a commandment that children are precious, and should never be abused? Still no?

Hmmmm.... your "commandments" are rather lacking...

Nope-- you've never been to an actual Jewish service, have you?
Obviously you have never been...
Here-- let me repost what you DID NOT READ THE FIRST TIME (or ever, apparently)
Here: Matthew 6, 1-7, words of your own Jesus. Pay close attention to verses 5 and 6.
YOUR JESUS COMMANDS YOU TO PRAY IN SECRET--NEVER IN PUBLIC.
__________
Matthew 6 King James Version (KJV)
1 Take heed that ye do not your alms before men, to be seen of them: otherwise ye have no reward of your Father which is in heaven.
2 Therefore when thou doest thine alms, do not sound a trumpet before thee, as the hypocrites do in the synagogues and in the streets, that they may have glory of men. Verily I say unto you, They have their reward.
3 But when thou doest alms, let not thy left hand know what thy right hand doeth:
4 That thine alms may be in secret: and thy Father which seeth in secret himself shall reward thee openly.
5 And when thou prayest, thou shalt not be as the hypocrites are: for they love to pray standing in the synagogues and in the corners of the streets, that they may be seen of men. Verily I say unto you, They have their reward.
6 But thou, when thou prayest, enter into thy closet, and when thou hast shut thy door, pray to thy Father which is in secret; and thy Father which seeth in secret shall reward thee openly.
7 But when ye pray, use not vain repetitions, as the heathen do: for they think that they shall be heard for their much speaking.
...Jesus is merely saying if you're only doing great things for the praise of men ...(you have already received your reward ).i.e. the praise of men ..

but, if you donate and sacrifice ...privately ; then God Himself will bless you ..

Not only were your "sacred authors" utterly and completely clueless?

They also thought that plants... could exist without sunlight. Go read Genesis: the sun came AFTER the plants...

... they were more uneducated than your average toddler.

Nope.

Anyone who thinks the bible is "inspired from god"? Is *literally* insane to a greater or lessor degree.

Some are victims of their upbringing, and cannot see reality as a result.

Others know the truth about it, but continue to pretend otherwise; these are the real addicts.

Well... if buying a medical drug means the difference between getting sick(er) or getting better?

Read it again; you missed the whole point-- praying in public?

Is *BRAGGING* according to those verses.

And it appears that Jesus was against bragging...

Is abortion wrong?

Show me the bible verse that says it is.

If you cannot? Being against it is ... hypocritical of you.

But children *are* precious.

bob, first let me appologize for jumping in on your discussion. i find your comment interesting, and i happened to come across this discussion rather late. i find it intriguing that you claim that those who believe scripture is inspired to be insane to some degree. the generalization seems odd to me because there are plenty of seemingly rational people who do hold to the inspiration of scripture for various reasons. now i can agree with you that some christians hold to the inspiration of scripture for less than logical reasons, but that is not to say that all believe for invalid reasons, nor does it hold that we all belive in the same definition of inspiration. i think your point is semi valid in that its acurate in part, but it leave much do be desired by way of completeness.
