    Love suffers long and is kind;love does not envy;love does not parade itself,is not puffed up;does not behave rudely,does not seek its own,is not provoked,thinks no evil;does not rejoice in iniquity,but rejoices in truth;bears all things,believes all things,endures all things.Love never fails.Therefore Love the LORD with all your heart ,with all your soul,and with all your mind.And Love your neighbor as yourself.For GOD so loved the world that he gave his only begotten son,that whoever believes in him should not perish but have everlasting life.For GOD did not send his son into the world to condemn the world,but that the world through him might be saved.

          LOL on the anti hateful pills smile

          I sure think we would all be better off if more people took Corinthians to heart. Less broken marriages and vows, less selfishness. More care of people. More eyes on the bigger picture. Thanks for the reminder smile Holly

          I told you, I don't do hate, that is a religious speciality. smile

          Here is a fine example of hate and intolerance.


              Anyone arrogant enough to reject the verdict of the judge or of the priest who represents the LORD your God must be put to death.  Such evil must be purged from Israel.  (Deuteronomy 17:12 NLT)

          You should not let a sorceress live.  (Exodus 22:17 NAB)

              "If a man lies with a male as with a women, both of them shall be put to death for their abominable deed; they have forfeited their lives."  (Leviticus 20:13 NAB)

          Sweet and gentle, kind and loving religion?

            You are a very intelligent man  and for you to say that you do not hate is beneath your intelligence. Hate is a harsh word, but there is some hate in all of us......

            As bad as you talk about the fundies, you cannot convince anyone that you don't hate them. You may say you hate their (our) beliefs, but you darn sure talk to us like you hate us....what are we supposed to assume from the nature of some of your comments?....that you Love us?

            Please, enlighten me......

              OK, I can enlighten you on that. Like I said, I don't do hate.
              I hate no one. If you needed help, I would be the first to offer it, do it every day of my life.

              I dislike hate as an emotion as it is useless. I do not accept your beliefs, I do not like your hate filled tome, I do not agree with religion.
              The world is a mirror. You are seeing your hate and reflecting it on others. Not psychologically wise and does damage to self at least. smile

            Dear Earnestshub, there has to be some form of punishment or correction for crime. Our land in which we reside is built upon the law that God first laid down. This is why we have correctional facilities and sometimes even death penalties for breaking certain laws. Because the lord knew if we did not fear breaking the law there would be total(caos) meaning there would be no order as we know it. Order begets peace", which is for the most part what we have the privaledge to enjoy living in the US! Without these laws we would be totally barbaric"

              Are you serious?  Do you think these are good examples of justice?  Your God is full of hate then, and deserves all the scorn that he receives from nonbelievers.  It is not that we should live in a lawless society, but the laws should be JUST and sensible.  These laws are babaric!!!

        Yes! Lets do that.

            "I will sweep away everything in all your land," says the LORD.  "I will sweep away both people and animals alike. Even the birds of the air and the fish in the sea will die.  I will reduce the wicked to heaps of rubble, along with the rest of humanity," says the LORD.  "I will crush Judah and Jerusalem with my fist and destroy every last trace of their Baal worship.  I will put an end to all the idolatrous priests, so that even the memory of them will disappear.  For they go up to their roofs and bow to the sun, moon, and stars.  They claim to follow the LORD, but then they worship Molech, too.  So now I will destroy them!  And I will destroy those who used to worship me but now no longer do.  They no longer ask for the LORD's guidance or seek my blessings."   (Zephaniah 1:2-6 NLT)

                Blessed is he who is not offended because of me,for the message of the cross is foolishness to those who are preishing,but to those of us who are being saved it is the POWER OF GOD.IT is written I will destroy the wisdom of the wise,and bring to nothing the understanding of the prudent. Where is the wise?Where is the disputer of this age?Has not GOD made foolish the wisdom of this world?for since ,in the wisdom of GOD,the world through wisdom did not know GOD

    saltposted 8 years ago

    Firstly, alot of the scriptures are metaphysical, not literal. And when I have read what a theologian has translated, it is vastly different than what I have thought the meaning of passages to mean.

    I am not a biblical believer. I do love and respect true faith and spirit.

    On a lighter note, at home we have what we call a portuguese inquisition. It is the opposite of the spanish inquisition. The women are the revered priestesses and the men are on trial...

    Beyond all of this is love.. LOVE heals all and can mend what religion and politics distort.

      I agree. I think it ironic that the beginning of the thread seems to be about Love.
      I believe in my Bible it says something like Love is Patient and Kind, longsuffering, not envious, oh and not proud or boastful. There is too something about not Sounding as a Symbol. (or brass depending on the interpretation.)

  10. Ohma profile image72
    Ohmaposted 8 years ago

    The funny thing about these threads is that no matter how often or how many ways you try to explain to the believers they all immediately jump to they are being attacked personally.

    Which leads me to wonder if they all believe they are God?

    I have seen many non believers try to explain the inconsistencies and such in religion and I have seen some very creative language used when referring to God but I do not usually see the non believers attacking other Hubbers.

      I have e-mailed the OP. I felt it was my duty. One hub in three months, one criticism from a Christian who told him how to edit his hub, and one other comment. He has not replied to either comment, and not edited his hub either, but insists on coming in here, posting love and then bashing anyone who gets in his way. It is sad.

                I love the whole hermaphrodite theory, because the Hassidics have used this to explain homosexuality as a normal progression, due to the splitting of this dual sexed ancestor. It is a pretty cool theory, and being Kabbalah, they admit it is a theory.
