Whoever speaks, is to do so as one who is speaking the utterances of God; whoever serves is to do so as one who is serving by the strength which God supplies; so that in all things God may be glorified through Jesus Christ, to whom belongs the glory and dominion forever and ever. Amen. (1 Peter 4:11)
Rich RossMy point is nothing more than it is pointless attempting to discuss the pros and cons of abortion as you are not in a situation where you will potentially change your mind on it or adjust your views, due to your rigid religious beliefs.
Rho LogySo if the world is just a big hallucination, there is no reason to seek truth. All existence is literally absurd, which includes questions about contraception. So is the question "does Sean Gilley think my opinion is weird?" Absurdity. "Is this world a hallucination?" Absurdity.
So why do you care about any of this? I'm going to live consistently with YOUR stated worldview and just not care about talking to you imaginary people.
Rho LogyNo, it doesn't terrify me. God told me to expect just that exact thing, in the Bible. So, will you answer my question, please? I'm sorry that you don't know what "taking things to their logical conclusion" means, but you appear to be a complete novice to these questions. Your worldview is completely unfounded; you just need to realise it and repent.
Rho LogyI know you want no part of Him, but you have a fearful destination in front of you, and meanwhile your worldview is completely absurd. And that makes you a fool.
Yes, God told me that in the Bible. God can speak to people in lots of different ways. He's all-powerful. If you think that's mad, I don't care. My worldview says that YOU'RE the fool to say that, and YOUR worldview says that "mad" just means statistical variance.
Rich Rossnope. this one... My point is nothing more than it is pointless attempting to discuss the pros and cons of abortion as you are not in a situation where you will potentially change your mind on it or adjust your views, due to your rigid religious beliefs.
Rho Logy\\My point is nothing more than it is pointless attempting to discuss the pros and cons of abortion\\
1) Then why are you here? 2) I don't agree, b/c many other people are reading, and they can weigh the merits of our respective cases.
\\you are not in a situation where you will potentially change your mind on it or adjust your views, due to your rigid religious beliefs.\\
Saying "2+2=4 is TRUE!!!!" is rigid. It also happens to be true. Nothing wrong with rigidity, if you have the truth. It's foolish to be flexible when you know you have the truth. And the absurdity of your position is a certain indication that your worldview is worthless.
Rho Logy\\I pity your position as a statistical variance\\
\\And if you think I'm that bad then i must be doing something right.\\
"Right" doesn't exist except in your mind, according to you. You think you're right. Joe Doe thinks you should be killed. You have not given us a way to know whether you or Joe Doe is actually getting it right.
Take another opportunity. Don't talk about laws. Tell me why Joe Doe is wrong to want to kill pro-abortion people whose names begin with "S".
Rich RossThat is quite frankly ridiculous. It is entirely possibly if for no other reason than the fact is has been written, re written and translated from many languages. I have an example to demonstrate this...
Rich RossThe Bible has been translated into many languages from the biblical languages of Hebrew, Aramaic and Greek. Indeed, the full Bible has been translated into over 450 languages, and some sections of the Bible have been translated into over 2,000 languages.
The Latin Vulgate was dominant in Western Christianity through the Middle Ages. Since then, the Bible has been translated into many more languages. English Bible translations in particular have a rich and varied history of more than a millennium.
Rho Logy1) Seriously, stop citing Wikipedia. 2) So what? You were still wrong. It's not debatable. Do yourself a favor and READ that article instead of linking it. You need to learn a few things about this topic.
Rho LogyOh, good to know you "feel safe". LOL so much for atheists being really careful about truth and sources.
\\ there is still the possibility of human error during the translations, and therefore deviation from the original text.\\
1) Neat. What errors would you suggest the translators missed? Oh, you're entirely and 100% ignorant of the translation processes? Wow, I'd never have guessed. 2) God protects His Word and makes sure that it is adequately communicated.
Rich Rossoki went and had a butchers at the website you linked to.. proof that god exists and got this at the end...
You see, you deny that the universal, immaterial laws of logic, mathematics, science and absolute morality are unchanging yet you base your life on their unchanging nature. Unless you reconsider your stand on this matter, your road to this site's proof that God exists ends here. It is my prayer that you give up on this irrational thinking and return to seek the truth.
The very nature of the science is that it changes as it evolves and becomes more advanced (special mention to the evolution of humans) ... Scientists regularly change their views when something is proven different to first believed, absolute morality changes through time and places.
Rho LogyHow do you know your education was correct? Were you ever taught something that you later found to be wrong? Could I just say "education" to answer your doubts about my beliefs? And then expect you to accept it?
