You're right God does say "do as I say not as I do" but for the sake of argument if you're talking about an all powerful God who holds your next breath in your hands do you think he has a complaint department or is he just going to see humanity for the dirt it is and more or less delete you?
A good one.
Very sensitive and precise.

According to the bible, it wouldn't matter what I do for God already knows what I'll do. And God already has shown to kill anyone at anytime for any reason no matter how much you pray or try to spew the Bible as the "word of god".

And it's actually pretty funny. The scientific discoveries we've made actually makes god quite a bit more awesome than the childish puppet master construct in the bible.
So true!

This God of hate and death that you speak of I don't see it that way. "Turn the other cheek" and " love your neighbor as yourself" seem to contradict that but I do agree God is a jealous God who did a lions share of smiteing in the Old Testament

You can say what ever you want. The issue is that, the old English spoken by the Angles, Saxons and Jutes, are more or less similar to Germans. Germans do understand the language unlike modern English.

Awww, did I not fall your you silly diversion?

And instead hit you with something that Christianity may just be recycled stories from other earlier religions?

But I must admit your lengthy two letter rebuttal was quite deep and well thought out. Who couldn't be persuaded by the argument that two year olds use in their NO phase.

Oh. So you regularly take things out of context for the keywords? Is this how you quote scripture too?

BTW, you still haven't answered the question who created Satan.

In continuation, modern English from middle English, came as a result of Latin, Celtic, Greek, French, old Norse, etc, influence. All these developments took place in England. The language called English was first spoken in England, that is why the language is native to them, before any where else.

Why would God be a jealous god? That makes it sound like there is a competing god for supremacy.

I guess an older brother of Satan could fall into that category. He wrestled with Satan and pinned him and threw him into the basement.

The demiurge would also fit in there.

It actually points to a bigger god that is the ruler of the god of the bible.

Lastly, yes it is a type of German, because it was not really influenced by other languages like modern English.

I, of course, never expected you to accept what I wrote Charles, but you do need to be aware of this...it actually is a reality.
Archaeologists have been saying for 50 or 60 years now that they have made the connection to mankind and the Homo species that preceded Homo-sapiens (us humans). Then DNA came along and opened up a whole new world of information about our pasts and happened to coincided with the archaeological data we already had.
Then a couple of years ago a scientist in Europe sequenced the DNA of Neanderthals and humans and found that most every human on earth, except sub-Saharan Africans and some South Sea Islanders, carried a small percentage of Neanderthal DNA...proving that early (c.30,000 plus BC) humans and non-humans mated successfully, and most recently it has been found out that another pre-human species (Denisovans) were found to be distantly related to Neanderthals and more distantly related to us, and some South Sea Islanders, another case of humans and pre-humans mating successfully.
http://www.livescience.com/16171-denisovans-h...
http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/science-environment...
These incidences firmly tie humans to the ancient line of Homo-species...in other words we ARE in the line of great apes and are descendants/related to these pre-humans.
We (scientists) have been able to trace humans back about 200,000 +- years, and this is solid science that I challenge anyone to disprove with real science.
Charles, there is just no possible way that this allows for the Adam and Eve myth to be true as written...hence my assertion that Jesus may not have existed because of the fact he was not needed to fulfill a roll....that was *made up* by Paul anyway.
These are not lies my friend...I am relaying reliable scientific news to you, along with the probable ramifications.
Quite informative, but there are alot of questions, left unanswered.
There is still a gap that no one except God can fill.
The quest continues.

You still have not answered the question, why do good people or parents of humble backgrounds, give births to hooligants, murderers, killers, and the likes?
