That is not true. Read yor bible. Adam is on the right side of GOD.
Just for you Bob.

In case you didn't read this.

Here is how your cherry-picked picked nonsense stacks up.

Here is the passage in it's true context:

17 “Do not think that I have come to abolish the Law or the Prophets; I have not come to abolish them but to fulfill them. 18 For truly I tell you, until heaven and earth disappear, not the smallest letter, not the least stroke of a pen, will by any means disappear from the Law until everything is accomplished. 19 Therefore anyone who sets aside one of the least of these commands and teaches others accordingly will be called least in the kingdom of heaven, but whoever practices and teaches these commands will be called great in the kingdom of heaven. 20 For I tell you that unless your righteousness surpasses that of the Pharisees and the teachers of the law, you will certainly not enter the kingdom of heaven.

Then Jesus goes on to show how he disregards the Law which is written.

For example, murder is exactly the same as passing judgment on others as you do Bob.

21 “You have heard that it was said to the people long ago,‘You shall not murder,[a] and anyone who murders will be subject to judgment.’ 22 But I tell you that anyone who is angry with a brother or sister[b][c] will be subject to judgment. Again, anyone who says to a brother or sister,‘Raca,’[d] is answerable to the court. And anyone who says,‘You fool!’ will be in danger of the fire of hell.

He disregarded the divorce dispensations as written in the Law.

31 “It has been said,‘Anyone who divorces his wife must give her a certificate of divorce.’[f] 32 But I tell you that anyone who divorces his wife, except for sexual immorality, makes her the victim of adultery, and anyone who marries a divorced woman commits adultery.

He disregarded hate which you personify Bob.

43 “You have heard that it was said,‘Love your neighbor[i] and hate your enemy.’ 44 But I tell you, love your enemies and pray for those who persecute you, 45 that you may be children of your Father in heaven. He causes his sun to rise on the evil and the good, and sends rain on the righteous and the unrighteous.

Jesus said he never changed the Law. What Law was Jesus referring too Bob?

You don't even know what is in your book do you.

According to your book, you are a heretic and a fraud Bob.

You have had your ass handed to you on a platter.
You must be kidding me!!!
Who told that Jesus only accepted "Ten Commandments" from Torah?

Are you putting YOUR Words and thoughts in Jesus' mouth?(I mean after all those Gospel Writers, especially John has done already!!).

Jesus said "I came not to abolish law and prophet.." why he used the word "prophet" if he only meant "Ten Commandments"?

And one of that ten commandments is "You shall not commit adultery" and also "You shall keep Sabbath"...

So our "Modern day Christians" are breaking these Commandments, are they not?

Homoism is a sin. Stick to your kind and prosper. Jehovah's Witnesses acknowledge that there is a chance the brain may be crossed, due to imperfection. However, some of the early Christians, 1st century people were homos and they adjusted their lives to remain faithful by living according to there kind. Homosexuality is always wrong. Always.

I don't care what gay people do, I get a charlie horse in my sphincter muscle when I even start.

I do care what people try to do to marriage, family and children.

Marriage is a cross cultural (common to every culture in history)
constraint (defines a unique relationship)
on evolutionary mating behavior (so powerful that it equates to the desire to air and food).

President Obama's description, "the love we commit to each other", is no more than a friendship. A description that fits numerous relationships that then must be defined as 'marriage'.

It is an attempt to dumb down marriage to a friendship so an imposter relationship can impose itself in a futile attempt to look normal. Ignorantly, it denies the reality that the closer a counterfeit gets to the real thing, the more it stands distinct.

Even more telling, it exposes the insecurity of a relationship that is unable to stand on it's own merits.

Even if a court tries to impose it's ruling on reality, even a child will always be able to tell the difference between marriage and gay couples. Especially if one couple is mom and dad.

Ask Marilyn: Is Marilyn Left-Handed? Was She Ever?
Tomasz Suchta of Szczecin, Poland, writes:

Marilyn: Are you right- or left-handed? Has your handedness ever changed?

Marilyn responds:

I've always been right-handed, but I like to do certain things with my left hand. For example, I work with two computers and three monitors on my desk.(I keep one computer offline for security purposes.) With one of the computers, I use a left-handed mouse; with the other one, I use a right-handed mouse. This feels perfectly normal to me. In general, though, I am not ambidextrous. Or bicurious.

Make sure you sacrifice a calf and a sheep today for your sins of not loving others here then.

Think not that I am come to destroy the law, or the prophets. The preceding verses were so opposed to the teachings of the scribes and Pharisees that some might assert that he was a destroyer of the law. He replies that he has not come to destroy it, but to fulfill. He does not say that he has come to perpetuate it.

To fulfill. To complete its purpose. He was the end of the law. It was a schoolmaster to bring us to Christ, but after faith is come we are no longer under the schoolmaster (Ga 3:24,25). The New Covenant did away with those daily laws and daily sacrifices through the sacrifice of Christ. Please learn the Bible and don't misrepresent His Word. Thank you.

Aren't you aware what "the sword" also represents?

Eph. 6:17 And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God:

Think not that I am come to send peace on earth. Christ has to conquer a peace by overcoming the evil that is in the way of peace. Hence, to preach the gospel of purity and peace always arouses the opposition of the evil doer. Evil has to be put down before peace can prevail. Hence, while the great end that Christ proposes is peace, the immediate result of his coming, and of the preaching of the gospel, was opposition and bloodshed.

But a sword. The only sword that Christ or his followers use in the conflict is the Sword of the Spirit, but the persecutor has in every age turned upon them the carnal sword. The sword is sent because persecutors use it upon the church.

"Homoism"? Is that a WV word? Actually, it's not a word at all, but let's pretend it is and see what that really means.

One meaning outside of the species homo is in homo-sapiens, is "same as". You might want to reconsider your name-calling choices.

I personally wouldn't concern myself what JW's acknowledge, the making and workings of the brain and genetics really isn't their specialty. I would be more concerned about my own behavior and sins and less about pointing a finger at others. Remember, when you point an accusing finger at others, there's 3 pointing back at you.

If Jesus changed one item, the Jesus lies. BTW, Jesus also worked on the Sabbath. Are you calling Jesus a liar?

Ask Marilyn: How to Improve Your Radio Reception
Jaime Blanco of Hialeah, Florida, writes:

Marilyn: When I adjust the antenna on my radio, I can usually get better reception. But when I walk away, the reception gets bad again. Why does this happen?

Marilyn responds:

While you’re touching the antenna, you increase its size—with your body! The slight moisture of human hands also plays a role, increasing the conductivity between you and the antenna. So when you let go and walk away, the reception gets worse. But if you moved the antenna to a good position, the reception may still be better than it was before you adjusted it. Simple solutions to poor reception include:(1) fully extending the antenna; (2) setting the stereo-mono switch to mono; and (3) wrapping the antenna in aluminum foil and moving the radio closer to a window. And it also works for queers.

That's are really stupid answer. FM works by a direct signal transmission. Moving your body into the path may block the signal. Touching the antenna may or may not work. Antennas are tuned to a certain bandwidth. Sometimes shortening the antenna improves reception.

You are a moron trying to act like an expert.
