<quoted text>RR, I think that you are one of the less obnoxious people on this site, so I'm not gonna be mean, but you are really reaching here. Obviously she was not claiming that exact wording occurs anywhere in the bible, and she found many examples where death was encouraged for non-believers. You can't deny that the bible explicitly orders believers to kill nonbelievers. You can dance around it all you want by claiming that we just aren't "studying" it hard enough to understand the true divine meaning behind stoning someone to death, but the fact remains - the bible is a messed up book.
Well, sha-hit. Thanks for the kind words.

The Bible can SEEM like a messed up book if one takes a few key scriptures here & there and twines then all into one argument.

BUT. That's not how the Bible reads.

Atheists often accuse "cristards" for cherry picking the Bible but it seems it's actually the athitards that do.

I'm sure that if one wanted to "interpret" a Winnie the Pooh book into a sec book, they probably could. But that's not what the author intended....

<quoted text>She posted direct quotes that leave no room for interpretation. If anything, you are guilty of twisting the words of the bible to fit the meaning that you want, and that, all things considered, is a good thing. It wouldn't be a good thing if you organized a group of your buddies to come and burn down my entire town for my lack of belief.
Wrong.

The room let for interpretation is the meaning, the context, of the entire scripture. If you take a verse out if context & don't bother to try to understand what it's trying to mean, then yes, they look bad.

Any atheist will cherry pick the Bible at his/her him. That doesn't make 'em right.

All assumptions are not correct & all assertions are not correct when they don't correspond with the whole text.
To put it bluntly, your assumptions are incorrect. You've twisted the words of the Bible into the meanings that you want. That's not how it works.
Now the "context" argument. So to you there is a context in which mass murder, genocide, rape, pillaging, and all that is perfectly okay and even holy. That does not help your case. If there is even one context in which something is valid or good then you are supporting that act, it's pretty simple, if you can justify the act for one instance then you can justify it for many others just by interpreting that one instance and the current one.

You just dig a deeper hole for your beliefs, your book is written specifically to contradict itself, specifically to offer justification for any horrible act in any situation, that is why you have to complain about context and interpretation, so you can say no one else is allowed to rape except you. Your book, like almost all religious books, say to kill those who are different than you, you cannot argue that without lying.

Break it down. TRY to understand what the Bible is teaching....

Deut 17:12

Ver. 12 And the man that will do presumptuously
The judge of the country court that makes his application to that at Jerusalem for information and direction; if, after all, he is conceited in his own opinion, and rejects theirs, and is obstinate, and will not be guided and directed, but will take his own way, and pursue his own sense of things, and act according to that:
and will not hearken to the priest that standeth to minister there
before the Lord thy God;
the priests of the tribe of Levi, of whom the court generally consisted,( Deuteronomy 17:9 ), priest for priests; though some think the high priest is meant, to whom the character very well agrees; but he was not always at the head of the sanhedrim, nor indeed a member of it, unless he had the proper qualifications; see ( Deuteronomy 18:18 )

or unto the judge; or judges; (See Gill on Deuteronomy 17:9). L'Empereur F7 thinks, that the supreme senate, or grand sanhedrim, was twofold, according to the diversity of ecclesiastic and political matters; since where it treats of the supreme senators, or chief persons in the court, the priest is manifestly distinguished from the judge (i.e. priests or judges); now the man that has asked advice of them, and will not be directed by it, but takes his own way, this being so great a contempt of, and insult upon, the great senate of the nation:

even that man shall die;
and this was by strangling, for so the rebellious older, as such an one is called, was to die according to the Misnah F8; and it is said F9, that the death spoken of in the law absolutely (without specifying what kind of death) is strangling:

and thou shall put away the evil from Israel;
the evil man that is rebellious against the supreme legislature of the nation, and the evil of contumacy he is guilty of, deterring others from it by his death.

Nope. If magic really works like some people believe it does then there wouldn't be very many people left alive after all the hateful *magicians* "spelled" their perceived enemies to death. Every jealous twit would use it every time anybody pished them off or had something they wanted.

Yeah, some people don't know how to let a fad go. There was a guy who spooked me back in 2007 with a gift of this huge azz chunk of rose quartz. It was shaped like a heart and dang near as big as my head. He said he "...just wanted to be friends" but he scared me with how aggressive he was. I didn't want to accept it but he wouldn't let me leave without it. Maybe I over-reacted because he was so humongous, but I don't think so. One of my neighbors said he was probably trying to put a love spell on me with the stone but the stone wasn't what scared me.

How about this, from a website promoting rose quartz:

This beautiful pink crystal has a powerful energy that resonates within both the heart chakra and the higher heart chakra, or thymus chakra. This stone will also resonate out the love energy into its surrounds... and aid all those nearby, such as your nearest and dearest.

Not only will it assist you with healing yourself but its energy may bring faith and hope to all in the vicinity... and this energy is well known for its action to stimulate romance in your life.

I recommend it to you nano.
