Correct.

Note that the persecutions of the time were NOT against Christians. They were against Jews. Esp. Jewish sects that were seen as trouble makers. The Christians were just another Jewish sect just like the Westboro Baptists are just another Christian sect.

It has been argued that following his conversion Paul's main goal was to create an identity for Christians as separate from Judaism in order to keep them from being persecuted. A goal it took 300 years to accomplish.

I guess the homosexual propaganda won´t go away till the dreams of Sodom and Gomorrah (the legalization of homosexuality) and the public acceptance for the queers to live in sin, shame and guilt and their deal with human rights and euquality are fullfilled.
My advice would be to get used to it, Adolf.

Well, Adam, it's a good thing for the awesome homosexuals that the bible is a work of fiction.
Only the delusional follow 'rules' set in a book of fiction, I would prefer to follow 'rules' from Star Wars myself, Jedis are not bigoted eejits.
Yes, it's all a complete, um...fairytale.

.. sorry RR, that makes no sense to me ..
.. we are shaped by our thoughts. If fear is planted in the mind, what is the harvest? Everything a human desires, real freedom, depends on the ability to release fear and bravely go forward and experience the unknown ..
"Fear is the path to the dark side. Fear leads to anger. Anger leads to hate. Hate leads to suffering." Yoda
<quoted text>
.. fear doesn't create terrorism, terrorism creates fear (think 9-11)..
.. when someone says, "You're going to hell if you don't change your ways and believe in my god," it's religious propaganda intended to promote fear ..
.. to champion the worship of any god, terror has become a useful tool, a way to galvanize mass fear ..
.. both Christians and Muslims claim the world must be purified. While their methods differ, they know terrorism will create fear ..
.. the weapon of religious fear is a contagious monster that prevents humans from experiencing true freedom ..
.. do you fear the absence of fear ??..
Well, I'm not going to say that all Muslims are terrorists, they're not all.

Have you ever read their holy book though? There's an awful lot of hellfire and damnation in there.

1. It says nothing about lesbianism, only male homosexuals.
2. According to Christianity, Jesus abolished all the Laws of the OT so even homosexuality is not a sin anymore. Just like you can eat a pork and cheese sandwich now.
3. AS for putting all Christians in a box. That is Christianity's claim. IE: The One Church mentality.
Note that you all change that claim to suit you. Alternating claims between "There are 2 Billion of US" with "THEY aren't REAL Christians".
Yes, that's exactly right. Maybe because Moses didn't see that as a threat, he was a man after all.

It's like the laws in the old days, only male homosexuality was a crime. The legal term was actually "[email protected] With Mankind", so the same act was quite legal with his missus.

And it was all based on the Bible.

Christianity promises Divine Diplomatic immunity.
Even child rapist Warren Jeffs gets to go to Heaven because "He Believes". But if his victims leave the church then they go to Hell.
Such is the Love of Bible God!
That's what they told the suckers in that cult, anyway. The same with Koresh. That's how they get them in...and their young daughters.

Actually, I hope that Jeffs has Hell on Earth - right now. I've been told what they do to child molesters inside.

My favorite is PANGU!

"In the beginning there was nothing in the universe except a formless chaos. This chaos coalesced into a cosmic egg for about 18,000 years. Within it, the perfectly opposed principles of Yin and Yang became balanced, and Pangu emerged (or woke up) from the egg. Pangu is usually depicted as a primitive, hairy giant who has horns on his head and wears furs. Pangu began creating the world: he separated Yin from Yang with a swing of his giant axe, creating the Earth (murky Yin) and the Sky (clear Yang). To keep them separated, Pangu stood between them and pushed up the Sky. This task took 18,000 years; with each day the sky grew ten feet (3 meters) higher, the Earth ten feet wider, and Pangu ten feet taller. In some versions of the story, Pangu is aided in this task by the four most prominent beasts, namely the Turtle, the Qilin, the Phoenix, and the Dragon.
After the 18,000 years had elapsed, Pangu died. His breath became the wind, mist and clouds; his voice, thunder; his left eye, the sun; his right eye, the moon; his head, the mountains and extremes of the world; his blood, rivers; his muscles, fertile land; his facial hair, the stars and Milky Way; his fur, bushes and forests; his bones, valuable minerals; his bone marrow, sacred diamonds; his sweat, rain; and the fleas on his fur carried by the wind became animals.
The goddess Nüwa then used clay to form humans. These humans were very smart since they were individually crafted. Nüwa then became bored of individually making every human, so she dipped a rope in clay and the blobs that fell from it become new humans. These new humans were not as smart as the first."

.. I started to read the Koran but couldn't get through it ..

.. I have read two histories of Islam and both authors found the Koran rife with an endless stream of contradictions, violence, treachery and repetition ..

.. try reading The Book Of Mormon; it's the same thing - violent duplicity ..

Today's Prayer

Dear God, My heart is moved today for people who just cannot seem to find their place. They feel lost, empty, out of place, floundering. Some are discouraged; some are depressed; some are anxious; some are hopeful; some are searching; some have given up. I pray that today will be a day of breakthrough for them. I pray that the right job, the right ministry opportunity, the right words, the right whatever it is they need will be there for them today. I pray that you will open doors and lead them through. I pray for encouragement and guidance. I pray for joy, excitement and blessings of the heart and spirit. I pray for contentment, initiative, passion, thankfulness in their attitudes today. May they look to you and receive the gifts you have in store for them. And may you, oh wonderful gracious God, be glorified. In Jesus' name I pray, amen.

Prime Time with God
