"That I am guilty of something just by the virtue of being born?"
Lol. "There was, without a doubt, people with the name of "Jesus" back in those days, and it is quite likely that some of them were Jewish carpenters and religious speakers."
There's nothing wrong with BDSM really. When done properly (IE, not 50 Shades of Grey crap) it can be really healthy, fun, and the sub is the one with all of the control. And consent is given.
I wasn't citing my disagreement, I was citing disagreement on the part of the current Pope and others within the Catholic community. Also, where is the Catholic community cracking down on divorce due to irreconcilable differences in the same manner? That's definitely not covered in the Bible as a valid reason but the idea of excommunicating a member for it nowadays is laughable.
They find the bill of rights as problematic as well. Almost anything American they find problematic.
You flatter me, this was more of just an introduction for I have much more to study and debate. Thank you for the goodwill reply and I hope to become much better of a writer and theologian.
According to the RCC Jesus had no siblings. They are either half brothers from a previous marriage of Joseph or even cousins.
Random vacuum fluctuations created the entire universe?
please block me. You are the type of christian that makes the rest look like mindless drones. That isn't fair to them

Well, I was extremely fundamentalist. I mentally walked myself through Romans 1 every time I saw a gay person, and asked myself, so when did they turn away from God, and then progress to hating God, and then progress to be turned towards homosexuality by God along with a warped mind? In that light, I could look at the proud openness of homosexuality here in America and truly think, this is not something that God is going to judge; it's a sign that God has already judged us with rampant immorality and licentiousness as people parade themselves on the way to Hell. So I too am embarrassed by my old way of thinking, to say the least.
Before the twentieth century people would claim to be kidnapped by fairies or demons, About the 1940's people claimed to alien abductees. These people experienced something you could call supernature. You could ask them about it, As yet we don't fully understand what happened to them. One possibility is Sleep paralysis but that Doesn't explain the whole thing like swamp gas Doesn't explain every UFO sighting.
So you agree it is unacceptable discrimination based on the bakers homophobia and is not to be supported.
I don't understand what you mean by the term supernatural, unless you simply want to affirm that the doctrine of an eternal God requires that He is changeless, like the principles of mathematics and logic. In that case, we don't refer to any events as "supernatural."
yEAAAP...Nothing like a Southern itch to make you oh so comfy.. /sarc
Yes....it was cut and paste. I'm not pretending that I invented all those statistics myself. And since the best way to show you where you were wrong was to provide the facts...I did.
That would be an unbiblical secondary accretion to an earlier authentic tradition! Heresy!
Which, sadly, makes you both a fool and a liar.
Yes it seems I do.....I would think the Temple would be a place of learning in all sciences Medical ect, and Humanitarian and Spiritual learning. Being a light unto the Nations. Somehow Animal sacrifice seems Archaic... Isaiah speaks of G- D being sick of Animal blood, or some such wording.?? ??
Thought it was Aunt Flo all this time.
The answer wasn't 42, was it?
Learning how to live well has been a process. I don't think it is a skill we are born with. We learn it from the older and the wiser.
