I agree! I can't stand it when Christians have the attitudes that since they're Christian, it gives them some "right" that other people don't have. I don't believe this man was a true Christian. Any TRUE Christian knows that murder is sin, and plus it was a bad testimony. Ugh!
Haha I get really ticked over this stuff. :P

My friend who is a Christian told me it, I'll ask her when I see her next. Though it wouldn't surprise me if they edited it out of the bible just so more people WILL worship god and/or Jesus.

Well, depending on the version of the Bible in question, and logic...I doubt they would have done that. But I really would like to know what verse it is. Let me know when you find out, ok? :)

Conservative as in, resistant to or opposing change? Well, I know what I believe in, and I stand firmly by those beliefs, defending them to the fullest. And I know it doesn't seem like it, but I do keep an open mind. But I'm not the kind of conservative Christian that only wears skirts, listens to classical music and never experiences the outside world. If that's what you mean then no, I am not conservative. Haha, I'm QUITE the opposite.

What I meant was that there were actually around a dozen gospels written, only a couple of which were chosen to be part of your religion. The others were regarded as incredulous and discarded (Although I am uncertain how they could possibly be more incredulous than the ones chosen). That is what I meant by pick and choose.

So you admit to completely ignoring all logical arguements because you are certain of your God's existence?

I never said it's wrong to stand up for your beliefs, I just stated that your logic was flawed. Much like the rest of your fictional delusions. Sorry if that previous sentence offended you, but to be honest, people will always find a way to be offensive, and I also can't think of another way to describe it. To you it's proof because you are blind to the contradictions and the "pick and choose" system of the bible. Meaning you believe every single thing in that bible. Also meaning that you must obviously see the story of Noah's arc as valid. But to people who think logically, the story is in no way "proof" of doing the right thing.

It doesn't offend me at all! Say what you want, it doesn't bother me. I don't believe in the "pick and choose" system of the Bible. And yes, TO ME it's proof. So obviously, other people who "think logically" don't matter. If it doesn't offend me because I believe it's proof that I'm doing what's right, then so be it. It shouldn't effect the "other people."

Any sane person would tell you that you will be persecuted, judged, and criticized for believing in something insane. "God" is apparantly no different. The fact that the bible says you will be persecuted proves nothing. It's common sense that you would be persecuted for believing in a specific god, just as you would be persecuted for other outstanding opinions.

Sorry, wrong word choice. But I mean, if you believed in unicorns, and people said you were wrong and called you strange, would that still mean you were doing something right? If you were schizophrenic, and told everyone there were little purple people climbing all over the walls, but then people called you crazy, would you still be doing something right?

But none of those things have to do with GOD. The only reason I believe I'm doing something right is because God cleary said that this is what would happen. If I wasn't being persecuted for my beliefs, I wouldn't be standing up for them, and the likely reason for that would be because I was ashamed or scared to be laughed at. And in the Bible it says that if I am ashamed of Jesus, He will be ashamed of me, also.

Something very interesting.... do you remember the story in the Bible, where Jesus healed the centurion's servant? (recorded in Matthew 8:5-13). The Greek word used for "servant" is pais, which is also translated to mean "male lover." However, at other times, Matthew used the word "duolos" to describe an ordinary servant. Also, the Gospels have many stories about Jesus healing their family members, but this is the only example of someone asking Him to heal their slave. The slave must have been significant to them, and it would make sense for the centurion to want to save his lover, wouldn't it? Jesus knew this, and he still healed the servant. So, He accepted this man, even as a homosexual. Therefore, I think gay marriage is perfectly acceptable and moral.

But Jesus ALWAYS was kind to the gentiles, the sinners, and the poor. He was mocked for that. Plus he loves us all equally, gay OR straight. It makes perfect sense that he would heal the slave. I don't think that story shows that being gay is right, I think it just further shows the deep love of Jesus and his willingness to save all.

the bible says "to let anyone among you who is without sin be the first to throw a stone." What gives you the right to determine whether or not homosexuals should be allowed to get married. Second, a lot of stuff in the Bible was put into the Bible to keep the population from dying out at that time, such as eating kosher. By having man and woman reproduce, it would make the population larger so a plague or disease would not impact it as much. Third, while God inspired the Bible, he did not write it. That means the humans that wrote it had a some leeway while writing the books of the Bible. I believe that while the main ideas were inspired by God, they authors had some flexibility when writing the details.

The Bible says I will be persecuted and laughed at for my beliefs. When Noah built the ark, he was laughed at and mocked but he kept on building it, paying no mind to the people making fun of him. When the flood came, it was he and his family who were saved, and the people who laughed and mocked him died. To me it's proof that I'm doing what's right. And besides, it's not WRONG for me to stand up for my beliefs, so it's "right" anyway.

Well put. However, from the way you approached the response to my initial post, it sounded as though you were blaming me for standing up for myself. You should've made it clear that I had full rights to defend myself against the idiot who was mocking my values. And that the only thing you didn't approve of was the way I said it. Instead, you got me thinking that you were targeting me as a person and didn't approve of my manner of self-defense. I forgive you though because as I said before, "the fruit of the poor lemon is imposible to eat." :)

I apologize that I was taken aback by the disrespectful comment of the poster that I reacted instictively. However, I do not apologize for standing up for my beliefs. I will never apologize for defending my values and ethics. For as we all know

I never wanted you to apologize for standing up for your beliefs. As a matter of fact, I respect and admire you for that! There is nothing that makes me happier than someone who is not afraid to say what they believe, whether I agree with them or not. I only was angry at HOW you were standing up for those beliefs, and that's the only reason I replied to your comment in the first place.

For the last time, if you were actually paying attention to anything I've been saying in the past little while, you would realize that the comment "Just, don't talk. k?" was not meant in a condescending way. It was merely said out of self-defense for the previous poster's comment in which he mocked our holy bible and blatantly stated that it was a book of "propaganda". I was defending my comment and my beliefs and that is why I said it. With regards to my other comment ("Great going, Einstein") I was telling the poster that he was very smart. You, on the other hand, misinterpreted it. But, i don't hate you for that since it says in Proverbs: "it is stupid to hate people who try to correct you" (NIV)

Honestly, how can telling someone not to talk not be meant in a condescending way? That was not called for and very unneccessary. I agree that the poster was wrong when he said that the Bible is a book of propoganda, but that's his belief, and out of respect for him as a person, there was a KIND way to defend yourself and the Bible.

I did not assume anything. I posted this as a Christian, and accounted for the other Christians in the use of the word "us." I am a Christian, Scott Roeder claims to be one, and he is giving US (as in me and all the other Christians in the world) a bad name.

Yes: God created man and woman, but he also created love and love knows no boundaries. The Bible was written by HUMANS during a time period that is very different than ours. A lot of things in it were written to help keep the population from dying out when there weren't as many people and plagues and diseases were a lot more common. I don't keep kosher today even though it talks about it in the Bible. Anyways, what others choose to do with their lives does not affect me or have anything to do with my religion. Plus, church and state should be separated. Discriminating against gays by not letting them get married is basically the same thing as discriminating against blacks by not letting them go to the same schools as whites.

Yes! I'm love God and Jesus! All I have to do are look at the little things in life to know God exists!

Yes: What if a woman gets raped? What if the **** brakes or the birth control fails? What if the woman becomes sick and will be put in...

Okay, I agree. What I said was rude. You say you believe in God? Are you aware of the verse that calls us to correct other Christians in their wrong ways? Not sure of the reference. Another verse is Proverbs 12:1, "To learn, you must love discipline; it is stupid to hate correction." (NIV) I was correcting you as you ARE being very insulting to others, and you won't even consider it. Go look at your comments. "just, don't talk. k?" that's not insulting? "Great going, Einstein." Umm, hmm. Yup that definately sounds insulting.
