You are blinded and perishing.

2 Corinthians 4:3-4 (NKJV)
3 But even if our gospel is veiled, it is veiled to those who are perishing, 4 whose minds the god of this age has blinded, who do not believe, lest the light of the gospel of the glory of Christ, who is the image of God, should shine on them.

"do not be deceived"
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,
You're deceived.
Who cares? More intelligent people would not want to spend eternity with the likes of you.

You pray that my comments are ignorant dear, but I assure you, they are very far from it.

I'm not sure what to call that beast you've dragged in here with you, but calling it God is just plain sad. I've read the book pumpkin and while I'm no expert, even I can tell that you aren't even in the same galaxy as right.

The Bible is evil to you. You call me evil because I believe what God said. That makes YOU evil. Now ya know. You don't even know what you believe.
dollarsbill: "The Bible is evil to you."

No it isn't. That's your opinion, not the Truth. You don't KNOW it's true. And you don't care whether what you're accusing me of is a lie.

dollarsbill: "You call me evil because I believe what God said".

A.) I DID NOT call you evil. And B.) If you ARE called evil, it's because of WHAT you believe about God - what you WRONGLY believe God would say and do - the evil things you believe true of HIM!

It's certainly been spun that way by trinitarian heretics since the Alexandrian/Cappadocian period.
It is not the way it was intended.
Some call that doctrine one of the underpinnings of the vast majority of Christians. Throughout the history of Christianity.

Just a note, the doctrine goes back to Jesus and the Disciples.

Smile.

You are accountable. It's in the Books.

Revelation 20:12-13 (NKJV)
12 And I saw the dead, small and great, standing before God, and books were opened. And another book was opened, which is the Book of Life. And the dead were judged according to their works, by the things which were written in the books. 13 The sea gave up the dead who were in it, and Death and Hades delivered up the dead who were in them. And they were judged, each one according to his works.

KiMare: "You made a Freudian bigot statement and got caught."
Specify which statement you're referring to.
KiMare: "Honey, I've traveled around the world. I lived in the Pacific Basin for 25 years. I love studying history. I've never had trouble distinguishing marriage or culture."
That's all very nice, but irrelevant. It doesn't serve to prove or support YOUR claim, that.....
KiMare: "Every single culture in history, before Judeo/Christian ethics and apart from it has practiced marriage from start to finish."
....UNLESS, of course, you TIME-traveled back through history and visited "every single culture" that has ever existed. And it can be assumed, with certainty, you did not. So....
KiMare: "You won't defend your assertion because you can't."
Well, as you can see, not only CAN I "defend my assertion" that your claim is disputable, I just proved it was!
KiMare: "Moveover, you lie. You never discussed purpose, you only made ignorant and bigoted statements about the origins of marriage."
No, I don't lie. But either you're lying, or you misunderstand. As I told you previously, I'm discussing the PURPOSE of marriage, NOT it's origins. And I have been all along.
KiMare: "You are blonde, aren't you."
My dear, regardless of whether I'm blond or not, you appear to be an ill-comprehending, arrogant boor.
Blonde,

You ARE discussing the origins of marriage. You have not yet given a reason for, or a rebuttal of my statement of the essence of marriage.

Moreover, historians can only deduce the past by the limited records available. Those records consistently substantiate marriage.

Smile.

You have no assurance of anything but death and misery. How can you 'assure' anyone else of anything? You can't.

I provide Scripture for everything I believe about God. You provide nothing but your erroneous opinions.

Yet you seem quite absolutely certain that you have been greatly endowed with the omniscience and omnipotence to absolutely, beyond any shadow of a doubt, or question, or any thought whatsoever to the contrary, assure me that I am fated for eternal fire. Good luck on that, really. You know, for a self-professed good Christian, you don't seem to have learned a whole heck of a lot from Jesus.

No, I don't pray for that. But I also know that:

How about giving us the contexts for each of these quotes so we know what you are talking about?
The Bible. You know, your "objective basis of morality?" The Bible says all of those things are moral. Now, you have to either admit that you think the Bible condones acts you find immoral (let's not forget slavery and beating slaves only enough so they don't die in a couple days) or you have to defend such acts as moral. I await your ridiculous response with bated breath.
