For any of those who want to go to heaven all you have to do is follow these seven laws...
Prohibition of Idolatry
Prohibition of Murder
Prohibition of Theft
Prohibition of Sexual immorality
Prohibition of Blasphemy
Prohibition of eating flesh taken from an animal while it is still alive
Establishment of courts of law
Where are these written? I know from Hebrew tradition they were given to Noah, but I've never seen them written down in Genesis.
I once ate an oyster which are alive when eaten. Am I in trouble?
WHAT??? Give up murder and sexual immorality? Awwwww.... what's the point of living then?
Where is heaven again? Why would I want to go there? Earth is quite heavenly.
Because that's all you know......but, when you understand that earth is just a drive-thru for our soul then...after we live wonderful and long lives we will.....yearn for heaven
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?
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.
I accidently swollowed a fly, is ok or am I toast?
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.
hey these 7 are easy and common sense (that's why God told all man to keep them)....what have you got to loose....for infinitive pleasure up there
It would seem that the Israelis are in trouble then-------land grabbing at the very least...........

Pre marital sex - help with a verse, or what does your Holy Book say?I'm looking for the verse/s that speak of sex outside of marriage - I am aware of the verses in Leviticus on sexual practices, but I was wonder if there is a New Testament one or two about this.

I've always been intrigued with the biblical story of Noah and the ark, so I thought I would examine what might have happened at that time.First of all, some assumptions were necessary. In the immortal words of Bill Cosby "I'm going to make it rain for 40 days and 40 nights and drown 'em...
