    So what did you mean? If you know what you meant then it should be easy for you to restate it.
    Give a man a fish and he eats for a day. Teach a man to fish and he stops voting for the Free Fish party.

    I have restated it. Violence can be used in the service and glorification of God, IF THE MOTIVATION IS PURE. The example of Jesus taking a whip and ridding the temple of greedy people demonstrates that. People who are bewildered by mundane things cannot imitate Jesus.

    He never ever spoke of it as something heinously sinful to be condemned as some of his followers do. They twist and wriggle around in his words to find slivers of possible support for their extreme views.

    It doesn't matter in any event, the bible hasn't any authority, and fictitious people from long ago don't set US policy.
    Killing one person is murder, killing 100,000 is foreign policy

    I'm not a bog riddle guy. Just say what you mean. I'm on a cell phone now so forgive me if I just can't go back and forth trying to guess at what you are saying.

    So, lets try this.
    1. What violence are you speaking of concerning Jesus.

    2. Please name for me the calls Jesus made to bring people to conversion or kill them.

    And please be clear, I don't have the patience for 50 posts of back and forth posting and guessing while you insult me.

    Thanks

    Why would some random person I've never heard of saying something I've never heard embarrass me? Because he or she says something you agree with? Do you have anything of your own to say in this thread, or are you just going to repeat liberal talking points?

    I'm not going to look up anything. If you want me to evaluate whether or not random person A is wrong, you need to post what random person A said. So either post what he/she said, or I'll just figure you to know how silly it is for you to even bring him/her up in the first place.

    Sure he did.

    Matt 15:17-20
    17 "Do you not understand that everything that goes into the mouth passes into the stomach, and is eliminated? 18 "But the things that proceed out of the mouth come from the heart, and those defile the man. 19 "For out of the heart come evil thoughts, murders, adulteries, fornications, thefts, false witness, slanders. 20 "These are the things which defile the man; but to eat with unwashed hands does not defile the man."


    If you aren't married and you have sex then you are fornicating. Jesus places that on the same level as many other egregious sins.

    We are called not to judge others in their sins, as we all sin, but we are not supposed to celebrate sin either. And Jesus separates "judgment" and "teaching". Saying that homosexuality is a sin is teaching, not casting judgment.

    Matt 5:17-19
    17 "Do not think that I came to abolish the Law or the Prophets; I did not come to abolish but to fulfill. 18 "For truly I say to you, until heaven and earth pass away, not the smallest letter or stroke shall pass from the Law until all is accomplished. 19 "Whoever then annuls one of the least of these commandments, and teaches others to do the same, shall be called least in the kingdom of heaven; but whoever keeps and teaches them, he shall be called great in the kingdom of heaven.

    Nobody is twisting and wriggling. In comparison to todays debauched society Jesus' views would seem extreme.

    So you know your entire position on this is stupid. Got it. If you weren't so afraid of your own position, you'd post what your liberal friend said. But you didn't. Because you know how stupid the position is.

    Thanks for proving what I already figured. Now, how about you refute what my friend John Gipson said about this and you. Is it true?
