God depicted does not change.Is this the objective morality you were talking about? Did your god evolve as well?
???. What do you know about spiritual gifts?I see that you still haven't gotten your spiritual gifts.
Faith and reason are not polar opposites.You did, however, throw out your natural gifts - your faculty for reason and your faculty for conscience. You've substituted faith for reason,
Rape and slavery wrong? To quote you,''Is this objective morality you are talking about?'' You have no objective basis for your claim given your atheism. Hypocrite. Seems you cannot comprehend the natural consequences of your assumptions. To quote Buck (which you never answered) Is your statement, rape and slavery wrong objectively true?and a cruel, ancient, and irrational ethical system for your innate sense of right and wrong, which would have told you that rape and slavery are wrong.
No you did not. You assume rape because of your jaundiced view of Scripture. Wives had conjugal rights. That means husbands had obligations to have sex with their wives. Females were given 30 days to morn and then the husband went into them and there was a transfer from slave to wife which was an elevation in status. Slavery was an act of mercy as opposed to killing them off. You quote from Judges and ignore context which was a time of apostasy and anarchy.I provided you with several examples of scripture authorizing nonconsensual sexual relations with women.
Yes they were. In Scripture there is concessions. Divorce and polygamy are two examples. These are due to what the Bible calls hardness of heart.Your answer was that times were different then.
You, on the other hand, obsess over things that went on 3000 years ago and exercise indifference towards arranged marriages today? So strange. You do not really care about slavery or arranged marriages. Your real agenda has to do with ranting against Scripture in which you only demonstrate ignorance. You don't know what you are writing about.Now you add that some rapes were not OK, and that in other cases, if the men married the women, all was fine.
I don't think Humanists celebrate ignorance and prejudice. You are a poor example.Sorry, but humanistic ethics run circles around that.
