Both sets of commandments teach the same thing, therefore they are the same in context, it is impossible for God or his son Jesus to lie.
Titus 1:2
So you believe stoning those who disagree with you, to death, is commanded. You believe that you should stone your children to death just for "back talking" to you. You are a psychopath.

It is impossible to reason with a person who is self righteous, therefore you have to remain outside the protection that Jehovah God gives his witnesses.
Matthew 24:22

Jehovah's witnesses love everyone and will preach to anyone who wants to learn their Bible and the truth about our loving God and life. 1John 4:7,8

People who disagree with us are most welcome to their opinions and beliefs, that does not change our focus, we will continue to preach until the great tribulation starts, then it will be too late for this world.
Zephaniah 2:3

Which is why you continue to lie about a god you have no proof of.

I know asking for evidence that supports your myth is pretty much asking the impossible, but do you have any that .... make sense, at least?

So if your "god" doesn't change, why are there changes to it's laws in your bible? Not changing means not changing.

Let's see, um.... oh yeah, the universe can't create itself and therefore God must of created it.

The Bible teaches that the person who can know from observing that everything in existence had to be created and not formed from a big bang theory or from a molecule in a mud puddle would be a person of worth.
Romans 1:20

Anyone else is a fool, the Bible says that too.
Psalms 53:1

Hey, this is fun, making stupid assertions without evidence. Now, back to the topic at hand, where is the evidence supporting your god.

Funny how the book teaches you to project your ignorance and gullibility so you can feel better about being a total idiot. Snake oil scams are all the same.

Dude!

Your pansy-ass god got his weak butt nailed to a stick.

Kill'em dead, it did.

Thor? Thor is cool, Thor wears chainmail, Thor has a lightning-hammer.

Thor would never have submitted like a little pansy-- he'd have smashed those Romans with his hammer, and then tossed lightning at them.

Thor, now THAT is a god you can >>respect<< ...

... unlike your dead jew-on-a-stick.

Here's another one:

A Christian has no demonstrative mental activity.

Therefore? God.

Ah yes, "I don't know therefore I shall lie and say god dun it." Pretty much sums up religion as a whole.

Yep.

Religion's favorite place to "live" is in ignorance.

Knowledge is the tool to expose religion's lies.

That is why the first "lesson" of the ugly bible, was to NOT learn-- avoid the "tree of knowing" or else.

Religion has been trying to suppress learning ever since.

With moderate success.

Thank god for people who ignore that prohibition, like Galileo.

(irony deliberate)

A welcome alternative to Traditional Rock Salt, which is not only hard on your shotgun, but the salt spray can damage the bushes around your porch, if used too much.

I aim for the WatchTower pamphlet.:)

Sometimes if youngsters are with them, in the requisite white shirt and tie, I tell them they been deceived, and give them my own pamphlet, which contains sites and links that provide detailed information on gods, superstitions and such.

The young ones can be rescued, the older ones are already lost.
