We don't need many, one makes it a valid statement.

But for the laws of this country, I have no doubt whatsoever that this hardhearted, devoid of agape love, bigoted, and self-righteous poster would have done so.
I only ask a question. Is that sdo bad?

You have accuse me of many obnoxious hings things and you don't even know me or my theology.

Why didn't you answer my question?

Do you have any evidence to support your OPINION or do you just enjoy listening to yourself pontificate?

You are making la statement for which you have no evidence. You make it simply on the basis you disagree with me. The chances are I have read the Scriptures more and more carefully than you have. I have another advantage, I believe them all; you just believe those you arre with.

The OT historiographers not only had different ideas at different times, every single one of them (and the NT writers as well) had a specific point of view which sometimes conflicted with previous writers--because biblical truth is situational, just like people are.
How about an example so I can tell if you know what you are talking about.

And they LOVE doing all those things.... then telling each other how godly and righteous they are.
It seems you LOVE lying about people. How sad.

I think it saddens Him more when we eliminate the Scriptures He has given us in favor of our personal opinions.

You make another common mistake made by skeptics. Posting what God says about homosexuality in no way indicates we do not love them. "We are even suppose to love our enemies and I have never heard a pastor say homosexuals are our enemy.


Actually we do not show agape love when we are unwilling to tell others what God says. Especially when someone what says contradicts what what God says.

I just said something similar in post #128 in this thread.

Wild biblical stories that demand answers - Whoppers, what say ye?

The same evidence I posted on the Cain & Abel thread: I am an intelligent, educated, rational adult.

Anyone who believes in an inerrant bible is lacking in one or more of those qualities.
