Culture. Religions are part of the culture of any people, but they are only a part. Rejecting God (and thus the dictates of religion) is not a rejection of the larger culture. Some sociologists argue it is not possible to reject culture broadly, since we are often not aware that our beliefs about what we should and should not do was absorbed from culture. If a woman is a "good girl" because her religion denounces promiscuity embracing atheism probably won't lead her to joining a swingers club since here in the USA the secular culture and most religious cultures agree more or less on promiscuity. If she is gay she will feel less constrained because the popular culture is more tolerant of homosexualty than religious groups.
...but seven years.....maybe something else has his attention? Focus!!
You realize that Mark was written before Matthew and Luke, and in Mark, the author says Jesus was "??? ???????" (from Nazareth), right? (Mark 1:9)
You don?t need mass extinctions. Change to the environment can cause pressure on natural selection...
Right, then she is out 300.00.
I'm not defending the indefensible...you are. I simply asked a rhetorical question about what matters.
There is nothing wrong in being gay. Gay people are just people. How does it impact any straight person what a gay person does.
To all readers: Reverend Swanson here keeps using this dinosaur-whistle fallacy to try to assassinate the character of LGBTQ+ activists like Matt Shurka, but it's a con game. It's well-known that Nicolosi performed no follow-up evaluations with his "patients" and routinely destroyed the few records he kept in order to avoid any kind of accountability. Joe Jr.'s subpoena challenge is a cheap parlor trick. If Shurka were to go to the time and effort of bringing a legal case and getting the subpoena, all Joe Jr. has to do is go, "Oh look, no records of Shurka. That means Shurka was never a patient." You can't subpoena records that don't exist.
Many men have difficulty talking about their concerns and fears. And, with a first engagement, men are unsure about what it will be like to make a lifelong commitment, and what marriage will entail. They know life as a married person is different, with various changes, but not exactly sure how.
I think you're on drugs and if not, should be.
And yet, no two theists agree on what is literal and what is figurative.
I didn't even consider it but I go to so many classes that are coed

Based on your list of things they do, they aren?t pretending.
I am the one who was discouraging you from labeling people as Christians - remember.

Mike, truthfully, I discovered 'Christ' and what Christ stands for.
It doesn't prohibit it, but it does absolutely condone it. That's the issue.
I'm still laughing about him making multiples of Texan. He's really struggling. And I'm so glad he honored my requested earlier by continuing his routine of trying to make silly wagers with other people here. Speaking of which, wtf is his wager in this case?
In Lew Wallace's novel "Ben-Hur" there is a wonderful line in it, "Empires come and go but the history of the Jews is the history of God".
$80 to fill with gas or $25 to charge with electricity to go the same distance? Why would they?
I don?t know ALL about it. I know what the Bible teaches and I accept that. I don?t claim it as an absolute fact and I cannot prove it. You asked for something that only religion can give. I offered you a suggestion. If you think I?m wrong then explain why. If you can?t then why do you keep arguing?
The Holy Ghost is God's spirit. ghost is an old English word for Spirit..the bible says that God is a Spirit and they that worship him must worship him in spirit and in truth! I know he , the Spirit exists because he is manifest to me in the way he began with the Apostles in Acts chapter 2. and likewise the way Jesus defined it , when he was in the Temple in Jerusalem the most powerful way in John 7:37-39!!! ...
