that depends on the crime and the punishment. Your god tends to give out infinite punishment for finite crimes. That makes him a monster, a tyrant at the very least
I don?t think Abraham was considered a teacher - Moses was though
Wow, a lot of questions there. "The right way to live life," from a morality standpoint... what is it?
"IMVHO it's OPP. What are Abortion questions doing in religion? It's a
You didn't even bother addressing my point. God plays favorites.
LOL, you think Christianity is "from god"?
So you would rather shift the goalposts instead of admitting you were wrong? You claimed the majority of citizens do not want it. Are citizens only conservatives or republicans in your view?
Trump's economic success has been exaggerated. Reagan had one month of creating a million jobs. Granted some special factors existed. Even George HW Bush put up better stock market numbers after one year -- in anticipation of NAFTA, I suppose.
"on the whole, we are doing well"
BTW, Christians were doing that long before Muhammad's birth.
I just wish we had a more definitive ruling so that we could stop wasting our tax money on things like this.
No, really, you can't according to the parameters of the thought experiment.
Regarding #1, you don't want to pay for the effects it has on healthcare. Do you feel the same way about smokers? Drinkers? People who ride motorcycles? People who eat unhealthy? There are several other things that people can do that effect healthcare. I'm not trying to be snarky, but I'm actually wondering.
Haha! I knew that sounded wierd and that thought did pass thru my mind. ??
I am quite familiar with the works of Funk, Borg and Crossan. Having worked with them I do have an insider's opinion. I disagree with your statement. Their views are not an attempt to salvage a moralistic credibility for Christianity but to sipher through the various traditions and extrapolate the most probable Jesus. Whether correct or not is not really relevant at this point since all including Schweitzer fall under the minimalist umbrella and work against the literalist, fundamentalist view of the historical Jesus. My personal view would be more on the side of Robert Eisenman and James Tabor.
"Whoever loves money never has enough..."
Well, for every "Monster's Ball" she also does a "Catwoman"...
No, there isn't. The only evidence for Jesus whatever, are the gospels and the authentic epistles of Paul, and they are not credible. Josephus, Tacitus, Pliny, and other secular writers were relaying sometimes 50 year old, sometimes older, hearsay. Jesus is not mentioned in a single contemporary writing from anyone.
Good job and congrats. I wanna before and after pic!
I want to give you my attention, so will you be around still this evening? I'm leaving in a just a few minutes, but can go into detail when I get back. Promise. :-)
No problems just solutions!
