I rely on the Bible when it comes to matters of faith. But thanks for clarifying where you stand. If you rely on 'common sense' and 'reason' on matters of faith, then anything can be made acceptable as long as it is convenient to the person doing the reasoning.

Makes sense I suppose. God has to have a time machine or how else could the concept of day/night in Genesis come into being before God gave us the Sun to mark day and night.

Some mornings after a night of one too many I wish I had a time machine to go back in time and change the quantity of beer I consumed.

I pity the fool who tosses reason and common sense out the window and submits to blind faith. That's where religious extremism and holy wars begin.

Well if you are near me, I would be happy to bless the oil for you and make it holy. First batch - no charge.

Or you could just drink three or four beers, then go back in time to the first beer. Lather, rinse, repeat!

That's basically what Xtianity hinges on. Subjective interpretation.

Nowhere in the Bible does it condone the eating of popped corn, nor the use of satanic electric appliances. You'd have to really twist the Bible to justify eating such a tasty, demonic treat! I don't think eating popcorn glorifies God either. So no dancing and no popcorn for you!

Encouraging someone to study the Bible for themselves to find the truth is not being judgemental. Nor is it judgemental to point out the Bible condemns homosexuality. It is there black on white. I am merely telling what the Bible says, since there is so many misconceptions here. If you were a murderer, and I told you that according to the Bible murder is sin, would I be judgemental? No, I would merely be telling you what the Bible says about the matter.

And no, divorcees do not automatically end up in hell. Even murderers do not automatically go there, nor homosexuals. Once you come to Christ, it is all washed away. But if yo choose not to accept Christ as your saviour, then you will end up there.

I would encourage you too to study the verses I posted on my previous post and explain to me how I have misunderstood them.

Nor does it say that eating popped corn is a sin. However it does say homosexuality is a sin.
