This is poor. You speak about a bible contradicst itself, then you need to show us examples of what you're talking about. James 2:14-16 elaborates on the fact that Faith without Works is dead, and while one is saved by His faith, obeying the Law (works) or if you prefer, showing your faith in the physical by helping people goes with faith.<quoted text>
Slavery was seen as moral by those who authored the Bible, supposedly under the influence of God. So by inference God thought slavery was moral too. Is it no longer moral? Does God's morality change to suit human custom? God isn't very consistent then.
Did God inspire the Bible or not? If not, then it has no moral authority, does it? If God did inspire it, then why isn't slavery still moral? The canon of the Bible was decided by the councils of Nicea in about 300AD, and the Bible hasn't changed much since until Martin Luther edited seven books out of the Catholic Bible in the 16th century. God hasn't issued an update since, and slavery is still in there, so...
What are you talking about? Slavery in the Bible is an inconsistency.
Not at all. To take a well-known example, according to the Bible, are you saved by faith or works? The Bible directly contradicts itself on even this very basic point.
Don't speak for me, because you are quite wrong.
You do have an issue with it unless you support slavery.
What is immoral about homosexuality then, since you seem to think you know so much about it?
And what are you saying? that some things should be edited out of the bible? Your tactics are diversionary. Don't take the issue off yourself and put it on scripture. We all know the flaws with the tranlsations (which is what you failed to mention), but even when the Hellenistic Jews had the scriptures homosexuality was still regarded an abomination. So though Greek and Roman culture was accepting of same sex relations, the Hellenistic Jews and Greeks and Romans who had authority over the scrolls for a time never edited these things from the several copies that were made.
So what's your excuse? You're out of your element with that argument Mr. Wild Rider.
