    I am a christian. Not a very good one but I try my best. The biblical quote I really don't like is " an eye for an eye", I know it has been interpreted as don't overeact but I still don't like it. Seems unchristian. What biblical qoute are you worried about?

      "And god made it rain for 40 days and 40 nights," Thus he destroyed all the inhabitants of earth, except Noah and his family. God promises never to destroy the entire earth's inhabitants with a flood again, but there are so many other methods he could use if he got really angry with us down here.

        Yeah, he could put Palin's finger on the nuclear launch button...

        That should just about do it.

        So, god had nothing to do with that tsunami that killed over a quarter million people in 2004?

          He might have.... 
            He did give an unveiling of things that must come to pass to Jesus and instructed Jesus to give it to his servants and when it was given to John while on the Isle of Patmos and he wrote it down, and after his release from that prison in 96 AD He preached this message back on the mainland. (Rev.10:11)
          The Little Book

          I feel sure that we have come to the end of these prophesy.

             So yes you might say that God had something to do with the tsunami!!

            Do you now love and worship your god for this atrocity even more? Do you think all of those people, many of whom were Christians deserved to die?

            What do you think of your god for doing that? Tell us how you really feel about it?

    Genesis 1:26 "And God said, Let us make man in our image, after our likeness: and let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over the cattle, and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth."

    Malachi 2:3

    Behold, I will rebuke your seed, and will spread dung upon your faces, even the dung of your feasts; and ye shall be taken away with it. hehe

    And God said, Let there be light: and there was light.

    Judges 3:19-25 ESV

    And Ehud reached with his left hand, took the sword from his right thigh, and thrust it into his belly. And the hilt also went in after the blade, and the fat closed over the blade, for he did not pull the sword out of his belly; and the dung came out.

    All of the verses quoted in this thread are from the Old Testament which is the rule book for a primitive civilization and which has now been corrected and updated by the New Testament.Of crucial importance is the correction of the "eye for an eye" teaching which has now been greatly improved:

    Matthew 5:43-44 (New King James Version)

    43 “You have heard that it was said, ‘You shall love your neighbor[a] and hate your enemy.’ 44 But I say to you, love your enemies, bless those who curse you, do good to those who hate you, and pray for those who spitefully use you and persecute you,

      So, why did god back-peddle and do a one-eighty on this one? Wouldn't it have made more sense to put the correction in place first considering it was a primitive civilization, and that the correction would have helped "civilize" them rather than increasing the amount of violence towards one another? smile

        Just another example of God pandering to the general public. Flip flopper is what he is.

          I prefer to think of it as God mellowing out after having kids.

        Don't you know anything about publishing?  You always have to come up with second editions with "new information" so people have to buy the book (or scrolls)all over again.

    I have several that are perplexing, and in a strange way, humorous...This one stands out:
    Deuteronomy 23:1

    No one whose testicles are crushed or whose male organ is cut off shall enter the assembly of the Lord.

    Or the King James version:

    He that is wounded in the stones, or hath his privy member cut off, shall not enter into the congregation of the Lord.

    Ouch...That even hurts to just read it...Larry

      Apparently Origen believed in Matthew's take on the subject.  He believed that Matthew 19:12 was an instruction for him to castrate himself...

      ...careful how you interpret the scriptures. smile
