Unfortunately, it is not the intact, completely accurate Word of God. That is beyond dispute.
So you have to factor that in when you are reading it, just as if you were reading a book that was translated from Spanish to English today. It will never mean exactly the same thing in English as it does in Spanish. No language translates perfectly into another, let alone ancient languages.
There is no debate here. This is correct. If God is important to you, then you should learn that.
From studying I learned "the Bible is sufficient truth not exhaustive truth". There is more to God than is contained in the written word.

If " Extraordinary claims require extraordinary evidence" then you are going to have to reject evolution, the big bang and black holes to name a few things that have no "extraordinary evidence".
Any reasonably decent community college will have the courses that you need to see all of the "extraordinary" evidence that underlies all of the things that you mentioned. Do remember that your ignorance of a topic does not mean that the topic is not understood by others. Also, note that "ignorance" is NOT the same as "stupidity". Ignorance is the state into which we are all born, and can be cured merely through education. Stupidity is willfully chosen and desperately held in spite of all evidence to the contrary.

AS far as evolution goes, there has never been ANY evidence contrary to it. The Big Bang is amply supported by the mathematics and physics, but there are competing theories that are not as well supported by the current evidence. Black holes also have strong support from our current understanding of the laws of physics.

I would suggest that you read "A Brief History of Time" by Stephen Hawkin. It is a very good book with explanations that can be understood with a high school level understanding of science and math.

Are you gay? Listen up.
"will not inherit the Kingdom of God" "nor homosexuals"
1 Corinthians 6:9 (NKJV)
9 Do you not know that the unrighteous will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived. Neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor homosexuals, nor sodomites,
Quoting out of context is EXACTLY the same as deliberately lying. Then too, deliberately quoting a known MIS-translation is also lying...

Me argue with what God has said....not hardly.....
Yes, and you continue to do so. Do you understand that I posted quotes directly from the Bible? Do you believe that any part of the Bible was in any way "inspired"?

Do your comments agree with what the Bible said in those posts?

Who was the Law for???
Jesus said,“Do not think that I came to <destroy> the Law or the Prophets. I did not come to destroy but to fulfill”
The Law REQUIRED that Jesus be in Jerusalem and go to the Temple for the Feast of Passover. By being there at that time, he fulfilled the Law. Had he not been executed by the Romans, he would have had to go back again the next year, and the next and the one after that, for his entire life.

I drove the speed limit yesterday. The day before that too. Having "fulfilled the law, does that now mean that I can drive as fast as I want?

The Law was for the children of Israel as part of the ETERNAL Covenant between them and their God.

Since neither he nor you are expert in Greek it's irrelevant. Every English bible condemns gays to the 'eternal fire'.
Deliberately continuing to quote known MIS-translations is a form of lying.

No LEGITIMATE translation of the Bible condemns homosexuality.

Oh, well. Not a huge back log of posts to catch up on, but I am already out of time. My son's school is feting the faculty and a few parents for recent efforts to improve the school and I am one of the parents...

Looks like I will have to pick back up with page 497 some time in the near future, a task made slightly more difficult with my young'un starting Spring Break this afternoon.

TTFN!

A child of God is special. Special to God.

If you are a child of God, you are superior to the children of the devil.

If you are a child of God you will be more righteous than the child of the devil.

The Children of God

They are Holy.

They love righteousness.

They hate sin.

They are wise.

They are respectful.

They are perfect as their Father is in Heaven.

They are head and shoulders above those who are not of God.

And they never ever tell a lie.

The liars come from the devil,

The father of all liars.

Ever notice that after Paul had his revelation he stopped persecuting the people he used to condemn?

Ever wonder why his followers won't do the same?

Its not that God has no room for the homosexual but that God wants all men to repent of their sins whatever they may be. All of us must acknowledge our sin and not redefine sin to mean something good.
If you really want to pray that homosexual behavior is in and of itself sinful, you go right ahead. But don't be too surprised if we don't join you in on that, the Bible tells us so.

We've been headed down this road for some time now. The country is splitting across the board, churches included. You have the rational freedom-loving people on the progressive side, and the repressed fear-mongering conservatives on the other side, seeking to create a neo-christian taliban.

When the conservative right wingnuts took it uopn themselves to create a law that favored their church doctrine over everyone else, they fired the first shot - they drew first blood. And they cannot seem to comprehend why people are p*ssed off about what they did. Mainly because they don't know the history of their own GD country, which was founded by people trying to escape an official state religion. They don't get it, and won't get it, because they don't want to get it.

So we are forced to make them get it, under penalty of law through the courts. No accounting for their sanity, since they keep doing the same thing over and over expecting a different result. What part of inalienable do you whack jobs not understand?

Does anybody really follow Leviticus? It can't be done. It is impossible or against the law.
