      Where are these written? I know from Hebrew tradition they were given to Noah, but I've never seen them written down in Genesis. hmm

      I once ate an oyster which are alive when eaten. Am I in trouble?

      Where is heaven again? Why would I want to go there? Earth is quite heavenly.

          And if you are wrong you have wasted the entirety of all that you all or ever will be hoping for something better.  How sad would that be?

            I was saying it on your point of view, however my point of view is, feeling 100 percent guarantee to what I said.

          So you don't know? You are just hoping that there is something better than what which we already have. Discontent is not a useful state of mind in my opinion. Always hoping for better instead of accepting what is can lead to all sorts of internal problems. Finding peace in the world we exist in will ensure if we ever live elsewhere we will be content no matter where we go.

      So what is sexual immorality? Who gets to define it? I suspect my definition of what is sexually immoral is quite different from yours.

    God, when creating the world had the "trait" of Justice. Realizing that humans cannot withstand straight justice, decided to add another "trait" of mercy, which enables you to repent and abolish the sin to an extent, its as if it didn't happen.

    Noah and the Ark was my favorite story when I was about 7 or 8 years old.

        Yes there are some people out there that still think that a global flood existed even though common sense says otherwise. Noah and the flood is believed to be based on the ancient Samaritian story, the Epic of Gilgamesh. http://www.ancienttexts.org/library/mes … /tab11.htm

          Gilgamesh is obviously a second hand account and enters into the area of secular witness to an event that actually happened. Gilgamesh the boat wont float, the account is vague. The bible version has all the dimensions and the ark can be reconstructed fully. The bible account gives more detail than just, oh water came a boat was built and then the water went away which is a short rendition of the gilgamesh account. Obviously to anyone who has read the noah account the information comes across completely as a first hand account of an event that actually happened and the gilgamesh account is more like, there was a great flood - giving credence to the noah account.

            How can an older account be less accurate? Sumarians 8k years ago. Genesis 5K years ago.
