I think fear of consequences teaches a child to lie. And when it works... the Pavlovian reward is huge.
I think you are the one missing the point. According to most Christians, you in particular may believe differently, they believe Jesus is god in human form sent to Earth. He supposedly came to die for our sins and teach us how we're supposed to live. If he mentions nothing about stopping slavery or that it's even a bad thing then he failed as a teacher or condoned slavery.
If something is resistant to change, it usually stagnates and eventually either becomes inert or it dies.
I beg to differ. We are all sons and daugthers of God. Jesus was the first born. But there are so many more of us daily becoming His offspring. ???????
So, you're saying... because the sinners sacrificed their own children to other deities now YHWH supposedly has the right to make them eat their own children? How Brutal is That!
Yeap. You got to be that 'cool girl'. I mean, I know some women are honestly bisexual and attracted to other women but whenever these things comes up, it's usually about always appeasing the male gaze and men AND women objectifying other women for the male gaze.
As if there were anything supernatural to being alive--and yes, the word "spirit" comes from the Latin "spirare," to breathe.
Which are those today? Maybe some Indian. But then India is the rape
You appear to concede defeat, Kev.
f=ma, but a force can be oriented in different directions which leads to a different outcome while all being the exact same f=ma. This means that directions are something other than nature.
I literally had to hold back from laughing out loud. Even for a religious person you're particularly out there. Gotta say, your particular brand of lunacy is definitely new to me.
How do you know anything about why black men commit crimes? Are you black? What is your frame of reference? You didn't understand my comment.
Why study when you can just ask your god to cheat for you?
Was a sports reporter available?
What evidence you expect?
Insults deleted, agnosic1.
My you are a cynic - welcome to the club.
So you can't point out any scientific progress made during a 1000 years.
That was a weird comment. Evolution isn't a settled science - the core is about as verified as a scientific theory can be but there's refinement going on around the edges all the time.
Like I said...
LOL. Why do you care ? I comment on all sorts of subjects.
I meant the girl, but grandma did excuse him, but i kinda feel she just didnt know how to respond
