The Canaanites were OK, I guess. Except for that horrible habit of sacrificing their children.
Oh, churchies do that too.
There is little evidence that the Canaanites performed human sacrifices at all, let alone children.

The best archeological evidence for such a practice is in Tunisia (Carthage) and even that is highly debated.

Hehehe.
Everyone wants to be a friend-less social outcast filled with enough anger, resentment and contempt to sit on this thread all day stalking people? That would certainly be a weird aspiration.

Why do you insert words into the Bible that aren't there ?
This is the type of thing that gets Christians accused of being liars.
I think it has more to do with brainwashing and stupidity rather than dishonesty but I am begining to think otherwise.

You and I both know he was a christian; you've seen the quotes I've posted.
You are another Hitler, licking his chops at the chance to kill some more non-christians.
i like to be involved in saving and setting free non-christians, not killing them. that's what Jesus did and taught His disciples to do and that's why hitler and other destroyers are not 'christian'. "you shall know them by their fruits" Jesus:)

Why do you denigrate the Holocaust so much? You always try to cheapen it by claiming that you and your type of christians are just as much victims as the Jews were.
You truly are deplorable.

Wait, their all dead.

How about a "translation" dartboard ?

Funny you mention darts. I played a lot of cork-board darts at home as a kid. Then I played the electronic ones when they first came here, and it had been nearly thirty years since I played until I got interested again last month. Good choice.

On a more serious note, that is why each word of scripture is numbered for the translation. As you stated though, there are usually several or more meanings. Discernment is critical as is comparing scriptures using the same words and surrounding supporting verses.
