"The Bible contains several references to slavery. The Bible does not condemn slavery and actually regulates its practice, especially in the Old Testament,[1][2] but also in the New Testament.[3][4] Male Israelite slaves were to be offered release after seven years of service, with some stipulations.[5][6][7] Foreign slaves and their posterity became the perpetual property of the owner's family,[8] except in the case of certain injuries.[9]

The Bible was cited as justification for slavery by defenders.[10][11] Abolitionists have also used text from the New Testament to argue for the manumission of slaves.[12][13][14][15]"

And I've told you that I am tired of rolling the boulder uphill trying to explain anything to you. How many times do I need to repeat myself? I've already told you that it's not a matter of peaceful or not peaceful.
Give it up. Don't try to understand. It's not for you. I don't feel like trying to explain anything to you any more. As I said, it's just too much work.

What lesson should be learned for their course.

Let us therefore fear lest a promise being left us of entering into His rest any of you should seem to come short of it. Hebrews 4:1

Please note;God does not change.If he was grieved at the unbelief of the Isralites and refused them admittance to Canaan in consquence.He cannot permit us to enter the heavenly rest as long as we indulge in unbelief.

Rejected. That's a Jewish apologetics site.

I just Googled "Atheism in decline worldwide" http://snipurl.com/275coog Here are the six eight hits (I numbered them). Look at them. The first one, which says that atheism is in decline, is your link from a Jewish site. The second, from Church Times, agrees, as does the fourth written by a theologian.

The other three, from Wikipedia and the Huffington Post, say the opposite, as do their references, such as "The Global Index of Religiosity and Atheism" for the two HuffPo articles, and the 91 references at the bottom of the Wiki piece. None of the apologetics pieces offers a single piece of research in support.

Lesson of unbeleif.

What did Christ say to Thomas because he did not believe the testimony of his brethren concerning His Resurrection.

Reach hither thy finger and behold My hands and reach hither they and and thrust it into My side and be not faithless but believing.John 20:27

Please note;The Lord rebuked Thomas for his unbelief because he would not accept the testimony of so many credible witnesses who had seen Him.How much more reprehensible is that unbelief which holds out against the present cloud of witnesses of prophecy fulfilled and fulfilling.

.. not so long ago, leaders of the Southern Baptist Church were staunch segregationists. After preaching from the pulpit about, "The filthy, disgusting idea of drinking from a water fountain after a black person," the pastor turns to the children and says, "Let's sing Jesus Loves the Little Children, All the Children of the World.”..

.. understand, the pastor wasn't a white supremacist or a racist, he was simply revealing the wisdom contained in the gospel and had the ability to preach contradictory worldviews: Jesus loves everyone equally but whites are better than blacks. Since he had the authority of Scripture, his arguments were persuasive and his flock believed him ..

.. fast forward to the 21st Century. Somewhere in the south, a preacher stands behind the pulpit and begins his sermon: "Today, let's look at what we learn in Timothy 1:10,'The sexually immoral, men who practice homosexuality, enslavers, liars, perjurers, and whatever else is contrary to sound doctrine...' Yes, my brothers and sisters in Christ, homosexuals are immoral abominations." ..

.. he turns to the choir and instructs them to sing "Amazing Grace." ..
Nice post. And the beat goes on.

If one could prove beyond a doubt that Jesus lived and was crucified in the first 1/3 of the 1st Cent., it would do nothing to prove a single thing your religion claims about him.
There were possibly tens of thousands Jews crucified by the Romans. Jesus was nothing special in that regard.
Prove beyond a shadow of a doubt that Julius Caesar really existed and wasn't merely an icon.

Then I'd suggest staying out of Uganda.

We can send the American military over there and waste everybody. We could then establish an empire. Would that solve the crisis?

Does Uganda have anything to offer in the way of natural resources; gold, diamonds, oil, timber, agriculture, fishing, ivory, country clubs?

Yesterday I read one the most distressing writings I ever see on this billboard from a dutch writer that say he was forced into Christianity as a child. And his country was conquered by Christians and Christianity was forced upon them. Them things not right. Now it make a lot of sense why so much of europe rebel against Christianity.
We all resent having Christianity imposed on us.

I don't mean being forced to go to church. I mean being subjected to things that Christians believe because they think Jesus believe it, too. I've said it before; This is the principle source of contention between the church and secular society - your pushiness. I realize that you don't care at all. But we care very much. So, we're doing something about it: pushing back:

<quoted text>No problem. And since according to IAN'S any rebuke that is verbal is peaceful by definition then mine must have been as well right?
As I told both you and Mark, this isn't an issue of peace or war. Why are you fixated on that? It's also not about influenza or school vouchers. It's about your church imposing its will on unbelievers, and us not being willing to settle for it.

It's all been peaceful ever since the last witch burnings in Salem. It is nothing but a war of words, a struggle of ideas - not a peace issue.

Are you intending to litter the thread with continual diversions to the irrelevant? There will never be ever appearing on this thread but words, and as long as we are confined to words, peace will prevail. There may be hurt feelings, but there will be peace, not punches. There may be anger and even threats, but there will be peace, not gunfire.

Peace doesn't mean happiness. It means peace. It's not an issue on a message board.

Who cares if Julius Caesar really existed, and by that, I mean...

No one currently invokes the name of Julius Caesar to justify condemning entire components of the members of our society as being evil, abominations, or "sinners" worthy of eternal tortuous living deaths, or insists the only way to avoid those blanket condemnations is to worship him based upon a mythic story in a book.
