Where exactly does the bible discuss abortion and deem it wrong? How exactly is abortion wrong "scientifically"? Morals are cultural and subjective not universal.
No, morals mean what is right or wrong. Just because you think something is right doesn't make it right.

I said what I had to say.

Faith is about believing without proof. I gave the example of Doubting Thomas.

YOU are the one who claims that the bible defines faith differently, and yet you can't even give an example from the bible.

You're a fraud. Stop deflecting, and give some sort of proof of your claims.

Explain about doubting thomas. Actually the translation when it says "faith is sure about which we cannot see", in the greek it is supposed to actually be "faith is the substance which we cannot see". You must love losing.

I haven't lost a thing. You have, you've lost any credibility you still had here.

Don't you already know the story of Doubting Thomas?

Again, you prove you DON'T know the bible.

Obviously, you don't, or you would know that it has EVERYTHING to do with the meaning of faith.

Stop deflecting from the fact that you have failed to offer one shred of proof for ANY of your claims.

I already did. It's YOU who can't. You never can, you never have, and we both know you won't now. You'll just keep dancing around it, and trying to pretend it's me who has not.

You're a fraud.

Of course I did. It's not MY fault you're not familiar with the bible, and the story of Doubting Thomas.

Quite obviously you have not, given all your posts on it.

You're just deflecting from the fact that you can't even point to a place in the bible that proves your contention.

You're fooling no one.

Why? Don't you already know the story? Why should I have to explain something from the bible to someone who claims to be PROVING things from the bible?

Where is YOUR claim proven in the bible. I guarantee you that I could find the reference, if you just gave one. Stop deflecting, and prove just ONE claim. Just one.

I know the story already. "Cock crowd", remember that from the story of doubting thomas? Now explain, since I don't understand. Stop talking in riddles and actually explain yourself.

There was no "cock crowing" in the story. Thank you, for proving that you don't know the bible at all.
