All of the great writers reworked and edited their manuscripts. God's no exception. It's "kind of" an important book. Duh.
My sister was murdered 14years ago. They guy whom murdered her was a Pentecostal man,, he left church used lie cheated. Murdered and now he repented and possible he might see heaven? I am a Christian woman and I forgive and forget type of attitude but hey GOD is forgiving and what can I say. I miss her I love her but I am sure there is more to this God stuff for "sinners" myself included. Not trying to offend noone so don't chew my head off.
Sure. In that case, it sounds like there's basically something ranging from an injoke to a short-hand for a particular social role.
God loves cake. Who knew?
oooh cute kittie
did you fail to pay attention in science class when cause and effect was covered?
Wages have been stagnant. It's the CEOs and stockholders who are reaping obscene amounts of income including stock options causing the income inequality.
How does one determine god is not real?
Lemme run that by my counsel Mr. Cohen.
yep. this. If they're talking to friends they're doing it on a messaging app or an internet forum.
yep this is what she wants...
I hate people who make everything into a competition.
That looks like the work of Congress. Maybe he signed their bills but I bet he didn't read them.
The item they asked for did not exist...
Usually I'm not big on white guilt. But considering what Lyndon Johnson did to the black community it was horrendous. The black family made it through slavery, Jim Crow laws and were doing fairly well considering. Then they became a casualty of the war on poverty in 1964. Lyndon Johnson snidely said we will have the black vote for the next hundred years.
but the question you were asked had nothing to do with religion or Jesus. He simply asked, can you not see a benefit to a story that teaches a lesson?
Especially opinions that endorse hats.
Well, I can't lie, I'm a bit of a douche sometimes. But being polite is a pretty good thing.
I actually think that if you wear nothing it less noticeable than if your wear panties, cause if you don't wear anything one doesn't notice the contrast.
What would make you think I was questioning whether gravity and physics "are real?" Have I implied this? I certainly did not intend to. Perhaps my use of "assuming a can opener" hasn't been clear? This is a statement about skipping blithely over a thing's origins/source/coming-into-existence, not a statement about the thing not being real.
What do I do I just got cheated on and my friends are rude?
I agree that if the gospels are taken literally, the support structure of Jewish theology needs to come along. Even within a largely or strictly allegorical framework, I'd say the OT is essential to understanding the NT (though obviously there were gnostic traditions that disagreed and sought a hard divorce).
This is a religious topic?
