Nope. We've all got the freedom to do those things if we want to.

Well if you mean is my God the one that the bible readers claim to have killed a bunch of people, then no. The God I worship is full of Love and mercy, understanding and kindness, forgiveness and compassion. He's also the same God that the bible is supposed to portray but HUMANS made the error in claiming that you should fear God. I do not fear God.
Hell is a correction place only. You create your own hell. When you are inharmony with God, you will be in the light. When you are out of harmony, you are in darkness.

Because man made it so. When sex is practiced in harmony with God's laws, it is in harmony with God whether you are married or not. Love is the most important of God's laws. If you practice sex in love, then it is not a sin.

I'm terribly sorry if this sounds rude.. but the thought of modern-day men proclaiming themselves to be prophets and disciples that speak with the same "authority" that the disciples who wrote the original bible commanded, makes me chuckle.
Not sure what this is about as I've never calimed to have authority over anything. I share my beliefs the same as anyone else. If no one likes it, then they should move on and ignore it or make a comment to understand why I believe in the way I do.

Selective reading is good.
You just threw out 3/4 of the bible though.
Does that make you 1/4 Christian then?

BTW, what sect are you in? The one with the one wife only or the one with the many wives?

Christians use phrases like "freewill" and "unconditional love" in a very Orwellian way.

It's not my fault that false teachers tell people to fear instead of love, murder instead of communicate (war), steal instead of ask and confusion instead of understanding. And I'm 100% Divine Love Christian!

I'm with the one wife.

Perhaps but you must remember, they are using logic that believes in talking snakes, seven headed monsters and other such nonsense.
