    Oh, so the Bible is the literal word of God? All those hundreds of contradictions, poor cases of math, and petty politics were the work of your omnipotent God? Fascinating.

    Your argument is weak and basically you are trying to play a game of semantics. Either give me a real argument or I guess we are done?
    I believe when you change words in a quote it is not "quoting" it is "misquoting".

    Meh, it's not a new thought though. Is it wrong? I think so, but it is essentially "easy christianity". The minute you take communion/get babtised, you have no responsiblities to your deeds/sins. Basically, just for being baptized when I was 8 means I can go turn muslim, have sex with animals, or murder 6 million people, and be proud of it, once I die, I will sit happily in heaven. This idea is repudiated in both psalms/proverbs and corinthians and is hardly new to christianity or it's mother religion preceding it, judaism.

    Again with the silliness. You want to throw out Paul's words, and now Christs based on wanting it to mean something it does not. Even biblical scholars agree it was about marriage in general.

    It's literal where the bible is literal, and figurative where the bible is figurative.

    That's not exactly true. Paul made clear distinctions on what were his own suggestions and what were commandments from God.

    I'm certainly no fan of it. I like to believe I have a choice in rejecting Christianty for the vile and corrupted relgion that it is.

    And this has what to do with my initial argument? Nothing. Fallacy is no way to debate.

    I have debunked everything you have said way to many times to go over it again. Just ask around or do a search.

    I'm not the one misquoting Christ in order to shove my interpretation down people's throats.

    His suggestions are not considered law. He as you said was very clear about that.
