    BTW, this thread belongs in the religion forum. Just because something has been repeated 6 times does not qualify it for the Soapbox. When the Soapbox begins another "Who has the best pizza in town thread" for the gazillionth time, they don't move it over to the religion forum!

    If trusting God is not of primary importance, then we run the risk of worshipping the bible, as some do.

    Why do you want to change it?
    Change it??

    I don't want to change anything.

    If you think your own cultural biases don't affect what you read, then your understanding of any written thing is skewed.

    If your first post here was to ask for the move, I might have been able to hear you.

    There's been input before AND after that request, so I really don't see your problem.

    Don't like the thread, let it drop off the page.

    So, why post a link with what you call answers?

    If you didn't want to change it, why post the link?

One must come to terms with the sin question in one's life, and that can only happen through the Son, Jesus Christ. He paid the penalty for sin, and that's why he said, "No one comes to the Father but by/through me."
    Yes. I know this, however the word 'God' is more of a title than a name. Your God has one name, while others have their own God or Gods, which have different names. You see? Follow the thought through and you will see that when a Christian claims that anyone who is talking about God is talking about the Christian God, this is as arrogant as someone who talks about a car and expects them to know that they are talking about a Volkswagen Beetle because in their eyes there is really only one car.

    Actually, this does NOT belong in the Religion forum. The subject matter is NOT religion, it is intolerance. In this case, as in many it has been justified using Religion, however that does not make the subject Religion. Any ensuing Religious discussion is just a by-product - not the intended topic.

    I agree. It IS intolerance. The question is (considering the stupid arguments) who is intolerant??

    Excuse me, Jack, it is not my intent to change the bible. That's what I meant, and I'm sure you know that.

    And, since the OP lists a bunch of supposedly bible based problems, it seems only reasonable to respond in the same way, by posting a link that addresses the foolishness of the OP.

    IMO.

    As a matter of fact, the Christian God does have a name - you must've just missed the memo.

    And in terms of tolerance vs. intolerance, I would say that someone who condemns a large part of humanity based on their sexual proclivity and goes on to justify this condemnation with a fairly obscure portion of scripture which is accompanied by the other examples shown in the rebuttal would be considered intolerant. Does this person represent ALL Christians? I would say certainly not. The point was about intolerance. Don't bother getting defensive. We all know how tolerant you are.

    SB it is a rare post in which you do not talk about what you believe. You post about little else - even when it's irrelevant to the current conversation. You attempts to pervert most of the threads you post in to religious threads are well known. I just couldn't be bothered searching all the drivel you post to come up with something proving that point, which is well enough known that it needs no further proof.

    Of course you can't be bothered. I know why. And I really don't care what you think about it.

    BTW, your comment about perverting threads is just your succumbing to the "advertising' of somebody who hates to have his off topcs and insults removed.

    So, have a nice day!!!
