Sigh... jimmie the question is irrelevant. God agrees with me.

Why are you concerned more about the personal relationships of others when your own is not being given the attention it deserves? That is the real question.

Happy and satisfied people do not look into the relationships of other people. God wants you to be happy.

God does not think you should obsess about any other relationship but your own.

I see the topic of homosexuality is much more important to you than the Mrs. That makes me sad for you.

I knew you wouldn't answer. You really can't. I get it.

No you do not get it, jimmie. I gave you the answer and you choose to be blind. You poor, poor man.

You must be right at any cost. God wants you to free yourself of this idea.

Good night, jimmie. I am going to dance and sing the Gilligans Island theme song. hahahaha I am a sucker for foreplay.

Jim, so are you saying that the New Testament writers had a handy copy of the New Testament in hand in advance to make such a claim? It is a better argument that someone interpolated that verse into that book to give the idea that even the NT was "inspired" by God or the writer ONLY had the Old Testament in mind, as it was ALREADY an established canon.

Please, omega2xx, read my previous post (above) again and respond to it accordingly. Does your "Book God" instruct you to stone to death Sabbath abrogators, disobedient children, adulterous women and non-virgin brides or doesn't it? From my reading of the Bible it sure does! In fact, only those who 'deny the scripture', as you put it, would say that it does not.

You must understand that no prophecy of Scripture came about by the prophet's own interpretation of things.
Ah, so I've added my OWN interpretation to those CLEAR 'commands of God' that Sabbath abrogators, disobedient children, adulterers (females only it would appear) and non-virgin brides (again, females only it would appear) be stoned to death?

Gotcha!

So, what is the correct 'non-private' interpretation of these particular texts?

It was always my belief that God provided the New Testament authors with an advanced copy of the KJV Bible ...one and a half millennium before it was actually written. Apparently, Jesus had a copy too. And, if the KJV was good enough for Jesus then the KJV is good enough for me . . .

Yep, the Torah was all they had at the time and I would doubt that no more than a few had access to it ...not to mention that many of that time period would likely have been illiterate and wouldn't have been able to read it anyway.

"God says" to execute commandment abrogators.

Anyone here that might be guilty . . .?

Who knows? "God" doesn't say anything about homosexuality or heterosexuality.

All "God" wants is worship from His human creations.

Exactly. God desires worship from His human creations.

Remember, thou shalt have no other gods before me. The very first command of the Big Ten. So, anything to do with idolatry and its promiscuous practices drives God to anger.

Adam and Steve/Eve and Grace ...God has a soft spot for them ...just as long as they abstain from pagan idolatry practices, y'hear!
