I shared this about a month ago...Thought I would share it again...

James 3

Taming the Tongue
3 Not many of you should become teachers, my fellow believers, because you know that we who teach will be judged more strictly. 2 We all stumble in many ways. Anyone who is never at fault in what they say is perfect, able to keep their whole body in check.
3 When we put bits into the mouths of horses to make them obey us, we can turn the whole animal. 4 Or take ships as an example. Although they are so large and are driven by strong winds, they are steered by a very small rudder wherever the pilot wants to go. 5 Likewise, the tongue is a small part of the body, but it makes great boasts. Consider what a great forest is set on fire by a small spark. 6 The tongue also is a fire, a world of evil among the parts of the body. It corrupts the whole body, sets the whole course of one’s life on fire, and is itself set on fire by hell.
7 All kinds of animals, birds, reptiles and sea creatures are being tamed and have been tamed by mankind, 8 but no human being can tame the tongue. It is a restless evil, full of deadly poison.
9 With the tongue we praise our Lord and Father, and with it we curse human beings, who have been made in God’s likeness. 10 Out of the same mouth come praise and cursing. My brothers and sisters, this should not be. 11 Can both fresh water and salt water flow from the same spring? 12 My brothers and sisters, can a fig tree bear olives, or a grapevine bear figs? Neither can a salt spring produce fresh water.
Two Kinds of Wisdom
13 Who is wise and understanding among you? Let them show it by their good life, by deeds done in the humility that comes from wisdom. 14 But if you harbor bitter envy and selfish ambition in your hearts, do not boast about it or deny the truth. 15 Such “wisdom” does not come down from heaven but is earthly, unspiritual, demonic. 16 For where you have envy and selfish ambition, there you find disorder and every evil practice.
17 But the wisdom that comes from heaven is first of all pure; then peace-loving, considerate, submissive, full of mercy and good fruit, impartial and sincere. 18 Peacemakers who sow in peace raise a harvest of righteousness.

What was Christ's mission in this world.
The spirit of the Lord is upon Me,because He hath anointed Me to preach the gospel to the poor;He hath sent Me to heal the brokenhearted,to preach deliverance to the captives and recovering of sight to the blind to seat a liberty them that are bruised.Luke 4;18
In what condition are those who commit sin.
Whosoever committeth sin is the servant of sin.
John 8:34
Why was Christ's name to be called Jesus.
And thou shall call His name Jesus:for He shall save His people from their sins.
Matthew 1:21
What lies at the root of all sin.
When lust hath conceived it bringeth forth sin.
James 1:5
I had not known lust except the law had said,thou shalt not covet.
Romans 7:7
Note Lust,coveteousness and unlawful desires are only different names for selfishness,Selfishness lies at the root of all sin;and selfishness is simply the love of self to the disregard of the equal rights of others.
By what scripture is the equality of rights clearly shown.
Thou shall love they neighbour as thyself.
Leviticus 19:18
What rule has Christ laid down in harmony with this.
Whatsoever ye would that men should do to you,do ye even so to them.
Matthew 7:12
Note:Selfishness then must be uprooted from men's hearts before they reconize the equal rights of their fellow men.
Who alone can cleanse men's hearts from selfishness.
Neither is there salvation in any other;for there is none other name under heaven given among men,whereby we must be saved.
Acts 4:12
Who alone then can give men real freedom.
If the Sone therefore shall make you free,ye shall be free indeed.
John 8:36

Not really following but it's a joke when he said he loves. 99% of his postings display hate for Christ. Sad thing is he is so blinded by the devil. This is crystal clear in Clearwater. Take care.

Where in hell did you get from that that he doesn't want you know that you incorrectly paraphrased him? He said, "You've incorrectly paraphrased me," Dimwit. And then you called him a liar.
This is the heart and mind of a Christian. He's trained in slandering his detractors, and his mind has been pureed into mush. This should cause any decent person to speak up and object. Look for the humanists here to do that, and the Christians to just watch.
"The end"? I hope so. We can do so much better.
Is this your idea of love? I would say not so much. Bigot? You bet.

Don't you see that what you are saying to me to do at your behest and your wishes is a form of control... uh, also?
It's called social pressure.

I never called homosexuality a lifestyle, that was just the topic at hand.

I am what I am and that's all that I am.

No, not really. But maybe.

<quoted text> I never said anything about marriage, and also, I pointed out that I felt that consenting adults made a difference in making decisions for themselves, and that regardless of that, I also felt that the incest laws had a solid ground for the laws being as they are.
To clarify: The laws, I feel, are in place to protect those people who might be forced into a situation they would not choose for themselves, minus the coercion or manipulation. That applies to both minor and adult, too.
Honestly, do you ever not only take the time to read a response, but to reflect upon what a response means?
<quoted text>Again, I mentioned nothing about marriage, and incest does not require marriage for incest to occur.
I notice you see or read commentary and then place nonexistent claims into something other people say that was never there in the first place.
<quoted text> Then stop it.
Nevertheless, I'll go ahead and address your questions made in misreading what I wrote, and the erroneous conclusions you made concerning what I did say.
On with your marriage questions.
<quoted text> I agree, although as I stated previously and pointed out; I think consenting adults should be able to engage in many activities, but the issue of incest brings up considerations that may place - even a full grown adult, and certainly a minor - in a position of coercion, that would be absent were the people not related along familial lines.
<quoted text>
Probably due to some antiquated cultural provision in which it is seen as acceptable, and in that particular instance, it appears to be due to a religious cultural consideration(a belief)- just read the bible.
What a minute here.

I see...

"Consenting adults" is fine as long as they aren't related, right?

You're a hypocrite, dude.

You can't sit there and say that homosexuality is ok as long as they're consenting adults but incest is a no-no.

It's all or nothing, duder.

Any Such Thing As Greater Sins?(As told by Prophesied by Ezekiel)
Part 1

(Mine: I was posting with G about equality of sin but then I remembered that there are greater sins according to the scriptures. Just a little scripture reading in the Old Testament/Ezekiel 8... Obviously God was angry at the situation. So anyways, after the reading then going to fast-forward to NT... a short, study.)

__________

4 Suddenly, the glory of the God of Israel was there, just as I had seen it before in the valley.

5 Then the LORD said to me, "Son of man, look toward the north." So I looked, and there to the north, beside the entrance to the gate of the altar, stood the idol that had MADE THE LORD SO ANGRY.

6 "Son of man," He said, "DO YOU SEE WHAT THEY ARE DOING? Do you see the great sins the people of Israel are doing to drive me from my Temple? But come, and you will see even GREATER SINS THAN THESE!"

7 Then He brought me to the door of the Temple courtyard, where I could see an opening in the wall.

8 He said to me, "Now, son of man, dig into the wall." So I dug into the wall and uncovered a door to a hidden room.

9 "Go in," He said, "and SEE THE UNSPEAKABLE WICKEDNESSS going on in there!"

10 So I went in and saw the walls engraved with all kinds of snakes, lizards, and hideous creatures. I also saw the various idols worshiped by the people of Israel.

11 Seventy leaders of Israel were standing there with Jaazaniah son of Shaphan in the middle. Each of them held an incense burner, so there was a thick cloud of incense above their heads.

12 Then the LORD said to me, "Son of man, have you seen what the leaders of Israel are doing with their idols in dark rooms? They are saying,`THE LORD DOESN'T SEE US; He has deserted our land!' "

13 Then He added, "Come, and I will show you GREATER SINS THAN THESE!"

Fallacy of false dichotomy.

I've been thinking of naming three fallacies as the Trinity of Fallacies. I know I want to include the strawman, and the argument from ignorance, but I'm not sure on the third. I either want to include the fallacy of false dichotomy, or the non sequitur.

Do you have any idea which fallacies you commit most often? I'm going to start paying close attention to compile some statistics.

You know, even though "all or nothing" is a false dichotomy here, you got there without explaining how, so it's also a non sequitur.

Any Such Thing As Greater Sins?(As Prophesied by Ezekiel)
Part 2

14 He brought me to the north gate of the LORD's Temple, and some women were sitting there, weeping for the god Tammuz.

15 "Have you seen this?" He (The Lord) asked. "But I will show you even GREATER SINS THAN THESE!"

16 Then He brought me into the inner courtyard of the LORD's Temple. At the entrance, between the foyer and the bronze altar, about twenty-five men were standing with their backs to the LORD's Temple. They were facing eastward, worshiping the sun!

17 "Have you seen this, son of man?" He asked. "Is it nothing to the people of Judah that they commit these terrible sins, leading the whole nation into violence, THUMBING THEIR NOSES AT ME, and rousing My fury against them?

18 Therefore, I will deal with them in fury. I will neither pity nor spare them. And though they scream for mercy, I will not listen."

Ezekiel 8

Are you gonna start a Tide Score Board? lol

A great example of a false dichotomy is: "If you're not with us, you're against us." Which IS false - there's room to be neutral...

It seems like ole scar scar is the one promoting a false dichotomy fallacy. He says that any sex or relationship is ok as long as they're consenting adults as long as they're not related....

In this case, it is all or nothing. One cannot promote straight and/or gays sex & relationships using the "consenting adults" excuse and then say that incest is wrong.
