Plenty of simply-explained "the bird and the bees" videos on youtube, Tower Monkey.
Jesus said as much, much of his art was in culling the important teachings, "the Word" out of the Old Testament, while removing folks from fruitlessly following ancient religious law, which Jesus pointed out rendered everyone who attempted to follow it a sinner. Forgiveness, turning the other cheek, compassion for the poor, arguably all of those, like hidden jewels, were culled from the Old Testament. And who did Jesus testify to? The Hebrew "God" of the Old Testament. No coincidence. Jesus was a teacher, a deliverer, of the "chosen" religious people from the corruption of their own teachings and traditions.
With Afghanistan? Do you actually live in the US?
Is there another method of dating materials more accurate than carbon dating?
Key word in that def is "might."
you miss the point. It is up to god to teach us if he expects to punish us.
Jones, we are built with a limited free will. You are saying omni voids this, but being all powerful doesn't mean you flex it. Being all places or knowing all things doesn't mean we aren't blameless for our role. Knowing the end from the beginning is just being in all places at once.
I had my choices in life and I took the most stable and lucrative one available.
Not my fault the bible proves God doesn't bless freedoms.
I respectfully disagree. It's the ultra-con religious types always talking about sodomy and other people's bedrooms. I mean, take a look at this thread itself. What's almost everybody talking about? Whether they *personally* like or don't like it or whether they have an issue with communicating with their partner about their likes and dislikes.
There is plenty of blame to go around. Including sanctuary States that encourage mass illegal crossings. All illegal immigration activity needs to be stopped as much as possible. From the illegal crossings to the hiring of the illegal workers by American businesses. Nothing about "illegal migration" should be allowed to persist without consequences.
Does the same apply to accusations of Marxist or communist behavior?
?But God shows his anger from heaven against all sinful, wicked people who suppress the truth by their wickedness. They know the truth about God because he has made it obvious to them. For ever since the world was created, people have seen the earth and sky. Through everything God made, they can clearly see his invisible qualities?his eternal power and divine nature. So they have no excuse for not knowing God. Yes, they knew God, but they wouldn?t worship him as God or even give him thanks. And they began to think up foolish ideas of what God was like. As a result, their minds became dark and confused. Claiming to be wise, they instead became utter fools. And instead of worshiping the glorious, ever-living God, they worshiped idols made to look like mere people and birds and animals and reptiles. So God abandoned them to do whatever shameful things their hearts desired. As a result, they did vile and degrading things with each other?s bodies. They traded the truth about God for a lie. So they worshiped and served the things God created instead of the Creator himself, who is worthy of eternal praise! Amen. That is why God abandoned them to their shameful desires. Even the women turned against the natural way to have sex and instead indulged in sex with each other. And the men, instead of having normal sexual relations with women, burned with lust for each other. Men did shameful things with other men, and as a result of this sin, they suffered within themselves the penalty they deserved. Since they thought it foolish to acknowledge God, he abandoned them to their foolish thinking and let them do things that should never be done.?
True, the bit ?that theists don?t care about? can easily be debunked by any theist who earnestly proclaims, ?I care about
Its a starting point geh. Read the bible IF you are criticizing it...right? This is fundamental to Christianity. We go from here in the discussion.
But its lived in. What does she expect ?
"Can't be?" No, it's possible some hyper-dimensional powerful being could have made it occur exactly as if nothing was guiding it. But it looks unguided, and it doesn't have to be guided to have occurred the way it did.
they also would not give the Allies permission to pass through their territory when they wanted to help the Finns fight the invading Russians!
