You are POS liar.
Why would anyone want anything to do with your god of lies and hatred ?
My take on that is he actually wishes pain and death on those who disagree with him and he actually would enjoy watching it happen.
Sick, nasty christian values.

That being said, I wish no such harm or malice towads him but he does toward me...odd but true.

People must understand that the Bible is full of metaphors, Hebraisms,idioms, symbolism, figures of speech etc,etc. So when one reads the Bible one needs to be aware of this most important fact. Doing so will help to open the scriptures up a bit more to them.
In Genesis in the flood of Noah when it states that the whole world was covered with water it is a figure of speech. It is no more literal than when it states in the New Testament that Caesar caused "all the world" to be taxed. Caesar didn't rule all the world so it was merely a figure of speech.
That's a whole other lesson within itself.
Some people, like myself, already understand what you say and realize that each metaphor, idiom, symbolism, or figure of speech can be interpreted by anyone differently. Hence, the multitude of religions and the 38,000+ cults of christianity alone.

Those many divisions represent weakness not strength. Those divisions reek of falseness and misrepresentation.

It leaves one to only seek Logic which qualifies all bible stories as only stories...nothing more.

<quoted text>Ys. Scripture tells us that there was a second irruption of fallen angels. It occured after the flood so they continued to sexually intermix with humans and produced mongrel children which as I stated earlier Goliath and his brother were examples of those mongrel offspring. The fallen angels could also produce normal,human looking offspring as well because those people that God would tell the nation of Israel to wipe from the earth were offspring of some of those fallen angels.
Many people would accuse God of genocide but the people that God told Israel to destroy, if you research their geneology you will surprisingly find that those people were the children of some of those fallen angels therefore exceptionally evil and a threat to the nation of Israel.
Cool, this is getting deep. An ancient conspiracy theory...

No, I don't believe that at all. You just have to make up stuff as you go along in order to build up that temple of yourself which is on shifting sand.
I have no sinful condition. That's holy roller bs.
I have no guilt. I know you wish I did. I know you're thinking you can give me a torture worm over it, but alas, that's a no go.
You have a good night. I imagine you'll dream of your God with steel fangs consuming me as dessert or something to get your daily religigasm. It's okay as long as you're not masturbating while thinking of me.
You have revealed why you can never be saved. You as a good Mormon girl believe that you have no sinful condition.
And you most certainly did say that you were displeased that Jesus had come to die for you already on the cross, and that if it were in your power, you would undo and rescind that act as having been done without your permission.

Seek Logic. Above all seek Logic with all your heart. For there you shall find the way, the truth, and the light. Jesus is the logos, logic of which you speak. Gospel of John, Chapter 1

<quoted text> Servant can refer to both a nation or an individual. Akin to debt slaves which usually involved trust positions. In Christian Theology. Isaiah 48:20...''The Lord has redeemed His servent Jacob.'' Can either mean Jacob as an individual or the nation of Israel. If you are saying Isaiah 53 involves the nation of Israel and not an individual then how does Israel willingly offer itself as a guilt offering?[Isaiah 53:10.] How does Israel ''Justisfy the many?" How does Israel ''bear their iniquities?" [Isaiah 53:11.] How does Israel ''pour out himself to death?" How is Israel,''numbered with transgressors'' How does Israel ''bear the sins of many and intercede for transgressors?" [Isaiah 53:12] Sounds like Jesus to me.
Actually, it's referring to Israel. So if you misinterpret the first verse of Isaiah 53, then you are off for the rest of it.

That being said, you could never spend a day without bashing a Christian,,,,,,mean and nasty athetard. You're also jealous you have no eternal punishment for me for showing how ugly your filthy mind is.

You wish harm upon the wholesome values of Christianity which for years protected our nation, our children, our economy.......odd , but true, you've yearned to see it all destroyed with the use of your do-nothing empty cult of atheism.

You teach society it is OK to kill in malls, public theaters, in SCHOOLS, and other areas of common use modes of enjoyment.

You are a why we will be in civil war again, you weak willed athetard.

That is how I see it too lightbeam. When Isaiah wrote down what he saw in his visions, it was a warning to the entire Hebrew nation. It didn't mean that there was some collective atonement, but that the Israeli nation always rejected the warnings of previous prophets.
A lot of people think that the entire purpose of Jesus was to be born, die, and be resurrected as in some sort of cosmic parlor trick. That wasn't the purpose of Jesus at all. The resurrection was a sign of the authority under which Jesus came into the world. The true purpose Jesus came into the world was to usher in the Kingdom of God through all humankind. Isaiah 53 described how and why Jesus would do this.
Yet obviously this kingdom was not ushered in, and God still has to kill everybody off again. A failure if there ever was one.

Words aren't used the same now that they were in antiquity. There really is a translation process. If you're going to try to understand the words written 2000+ years ago, you have to go beyond just the words that appear on the page. If you read the words in just a "black/white" format, that is "textual criticism" which is based upon what we see on the page. There are many points to consider.
1- What were the customs of that culture at that particular time in history?
2- What were the expectations of that culture?
3- Was information transmitted via oral register or literary register?
4- How can we understand information presented in a different manner with a different mindset in a different culture?
If you don't consider these points, then none of it will make any sense. This is what we mean by reading it "in context." If you attempt to literally interpret ancient scripture written in an oral tradition register, by comparing it to our own modern literary register, you're not going to understand it.
This is a post for X or HipG to answer. I know I can't do it as well as either of them would.
