Is God ignoring the 6th commandment with all his smiting?
I am blogging my view at:

Feel free to comment, but please don't copy the entire bible in there, I have my free copy from the Berlin Hilton
Just as in politics, rules are created by the rulers for the sheep, not for the rulers (or "god") to follow.
BTW, the bible is right about one thing, most people are stupid sheep. They deserve the effing they get by their shepherds, real or imagined.
The Ten Commandments I learned include the Sixth Commandment as, "Thou shalt not commit adultery" - so, no.
Lisa, I am humbled by your pointing out my mistake, obviously you did not read my blog on the matter.. to set the record straight, as with all doctrine claiming to be the only "Truth" I took the top 4 and averaged them:
Thou shalt not kill/ murder:
Jewish (Talmudic): 6
Anglican, Reformed Christian: 6
Catholic, Lutheran: 5
Of course having thousands of saints, the Catholics could not really include: "You shall have no other gods before me" or making of idols, so that accounts for the mismatch. Thanks fo strengthening my argument though }:->

How do you view this verse; 1Peter 2:24 (pick your own version)1Peter 2:24 has a phrase indicating we are one of these to sin. "Dead to". "asleep to". "sin no more" without reference to asleep or dead to sins. I think it is clear this is not talking about a repentance...

If it were proven 'beyond a shadow of a doubt' what the right religion was would everyone follow it?I tend to think people would still not agree on anything even if some God or other made himself or herself or itself manifest to all. Or to put a slightly different perspective on the question...
