Your beliefs indeed hold as much value as anyone elses.

In heavy country accent: Its Adam and Eve not Anne and Selene... Jezus luvs ya..

I love that he told them that they are hurting others around them as they frequent his business giving him money and possibly bring friends to his diner and then gives them a letter saying they will be burned by a goat man in fire.

Oh religious cave dwellers you never cease to amaze me!

Well if my belief is right... why wouldn't I want people to know!?!?

First you have to prove that your belief is in fact the truth or has some factual basis. I challenge you to do so now.

My Christian beliefs hold as much value as your beliefs concerning abortion/ guns/ politics/ aliens or anything else this board spits out. Stop sharing your beliefs of disbelief in mine please. Does that work? No because thats what this forum is all about.

No your beliefs have no factual basis at all which means they hold absolutely no value when it comes to sharing ideas thus you should not waste yours and others time sharing them. Instead you should be educating yourself on beliefs and ideas that are actually true. I will retract this statement if you adequately answer my challenge above.

"Why do you look at the speck of sawdust in your brother's eye and pay no attention to the plank in your own eye? How can you say to your brother, `Let me take the speck out of your eye,' when all the time there is a plank in your own eye? You hypocrite, first take the plank out of your own eye, and then you will see clearly to remove the speck from your brother's eye." (Matthew 7:3–5)

When they were in the house again, the disciples asked Jesus about this. He answered, "Anyone who divorces his wife and marries another woman commits adultery against her. And if she divorces her husband and marries another man, she commits adultery." (Mark 10:10–12)

"And when you pray, do not be like the hypocrites, for they love to pray standing in the synagogues and on the street corners to be seen by men. I tell you the truth, they have received their reward in full. But when you pray, go into your room, close the door and pray to your Father, who is unseen. Then your Father, who sees what is done in secret, will reward you." (Matthew 6:5–6)

Some laws from Leviticus that are overlooked, while one is SO fuging IMPORTANT THAT YOU HAVE TO OBSESS OVER IT OR YOU'RE NOT A CHRISTFAG

Chapter 19 is a grab bag of laws:

Verse 19: "Do not mate different kinds of animals. Do not plant your fields with two kinds of seed. Do not wear clothing woven of two kinds of material."

Verse 27: "Do not cut the hair at the sides of your head or clip off the edges of your beard."

Verse 28: "Do not . . . put tattoo marks on yourselves."

Verse 32: "Rise in the presence of the aged, show respect for the elderly. . . ."

Similarly, chapter 20 offers a variety of sins and punishments. Among them:

Verse 6: "I will set my face against the person who turns to mediums and spiritists to prostitute himself by following them, and I will cut him off from his people."

Verse 9: "If anyone curses his father or mother, he must be put to death. He has cursed his father or mother, and his blood will be on his own head."

Verse 10: "If a man commits adultery with another man's wife—with the wife of his neighbor—both the adulterer and the adulteress must be put to death."

Verse 11: "If a man sleeps with his father's wife, he has dishonored his father. Both the man and the woman must be put to death; their blood will be on their own heads."

Verse 13: "If a man lies with a man as one lies with a woman, both of them have done what is detestable. They must be put to death; their blood will be on their own heads."

This is why you're a hypocrite. You ignore hundreds of other laws in Leviticus, but you put that one on tshirts and wear it around like a fuging human thumb.

There is, however, a big problem with quoting Leviticus. The problem is that Christians are no longer under the Law. We do not live our Christian life by following the Old Testament Law. The Apostle Paul makes this abundantly clear. It is not something fabricated to win an argument, or made up in the twentieth century, or manufactured to get around something somebody doesn’t like. It is clearly stated in the Greek scriptures. The Apostle Paul wrote it in Galatians:

All who rely on observing the law are under a curse, for it is written: “Cursed is everyone who does not continue to do everything written in the Book of the Law.” (Galatians 3:10)

If we rely on following the Law (the Torah, the first five books of the Bible) we are under a curse. The passage above, Galatians 3:10, contains a quote from the Law itself, Deuteronomy 27:26. According to Paul’s statement below, things have changed.

Christ redeemed us from the curse of the Law by becoming a curse for us. (Galatians 3:13)

It was Jesus’ death on the cross that rescued us from the curse of the Law. If we insist on following the Law and imposing the Law on others, we negate the cross of Christ, and repudiate Christ’s death on the cross.

It is for freedom that Christ has set us free. Stand firm, then, and do not let yourselves be burdened again by a yoke of slavery. (Galatians 5:1)

Return to the Law = Return to Slavery to Sin

If we measure ourselves as Christians by how well we follow the Law, we have returned to our slavery to sin. We are then measuring ourselves, “justifying” ourselves, by evaluating our behavior by the Law. For usreligious folks, this is precisely what is meant by “a dog returning to its own vomit” (Proverbs 26:11; II Peter 2:22). And if we put other Christians under the Law, we are subjecting them to the very yoke of slavery Paul warned them about. We force them to return to their own vomit as well.

If you insist that other people observe the Law, then you are burdening people “again by a yoke of slavery,” which makes you a slave master. When people resist your attempt to place them under the Law, they are acting in accordance with the urging of Paul, “Do not let yourselves be burdened again by a yoke of slavery.”

Stop burdening people with a yoke of slavery.

But if you are led by the Spirit, you are not under law. (Galatians 5:18).

You Cannot Observe the Law and Walk in the Spirit Simultaneously

tb. here's the deal. if you say anything to the contrary of someone being gay, it means automatically you are going to be called a bigot.

you can disagree with it on whatever level you want. biblically or physiologically, financially whatev. you will be labled a bigot.

one group talks a big game about inclusion or diversity or tolerance but oh good God don't disagree with them.

i avoid talking bible in the tinderbox because it is without a doubt the most fruitless thing you can do. not worth bandwidth or effort.

as the fellas say in the RUSH song Subdivision - "conform or be cast out". well, thats what happens here.

So you used Subdivisions as support for being religious??! are you Paul Ryan thinking the GOP are the rebellious party?!

" Conform or be cast out" is the Whole basis of Christianity as you are handed a letter to CHANGE your lifestyle because it does not conform to another persons holy doctrine.

Blaspheme the bible...its a book

Blaspheme RUSH and I have a problem..that is true divinity!

So you just unknowingly posted excerpts that make you look like an even bigger hypocrite. Well done, bro, well done.

right, but the point is people use that verse in leviticus all the time to justify their views while simultaneously listening to sermons about how were are no longer under the law but under grace

anyway the entire point here is that it's ridiculous to try to mandate religious law over america especially when it comes to doctrines and beliefs that are already highly contested within the religion itself. anyone who's studied the church's long history of taking silly positions on human rights issues over the past two thousand years should be able to see the wisdom in taking a laissez faire approach to legislating these sorts of things

Debates concerning the finer points of Christianity are nothing but a smokescreen. People focus on the issue of homosexuality (instead of the equally damning sins of adultery, divorce, and hate) because it is convenient. It doesn't actually matter what the Bible says. People can and will twist the Bible to suit their own ends (people and pastors did this when slavery was legal; and the catholic church was strangely silent when Hitler was killing Jews left and right). Humans seem to be in love with the "them vs us" dynamic and any other dynamic that allows for the justifiable bullying of a segment of the population.
