God commanded a specific people be expelled from the Holy Land as a judgment for their sins. You misunderstand the nature of Biblical authority. It is timelessly true that there were stipulations associated with the Israelite theocracy. God has from all eternity had a plan of redemption that involved the theocracy. He simply did not intend that theocracy to be eternal but to be a precursor to Christ. This is the main lesson of the New Testament book of Hebrews.

How is that even possible? You can not change the ACTUAL writing. It is what it is. All you can do is get follower to a place where they realize that it is either; outdated, incorrect or not literal.

150 years of data is a small blip on the climate cycle scale which takes tens to hundreds of thousands of years to occur.
OMG! I am freakin' living up to it...in spades.
Because parents have a natural motivation to see their kids be productive and successful. Reinforcing poor choices that if they become habitual will inhibit the child's ability to be successful in society isn't in a parent's interest.
So... you're saying I should give up hope on the "water into wine" without grapes, time and fermentation in between?
I wish she could have brought someone just to sit with her. I think they had a no ring no bring rule.
Yeah ACTUALLY.. THERE IS... you leftist are just too moronic to KNOW IT!
