Moderators: Can I call him a moron in a hole? I know that troll is the preferred term, but "troll in a hole" is far too cheesy. Pleeeease?

I don't have much respect for oxford or most of the ivy leagues. Stanford is the only decent school in the bunch and I do respect it. Greatly. It's by far the best university in the world. Not oxford. Oxford can and should stay in that little inbred country full of people who can't speak english right.
The "previous covenant" isn't the OT law, it was a separate agreement between Abraham and God. Part of that deal was that Abraham's "seed" would be blessed, which, according to Paul, meant that Jesus would be a decendant of Abraham ("'And to your seed,' that is, Christ").Originally Posted by Lachean
That particular verse refers to a law that came 430 years after the covenant was made with Abraham, but the lesson seems to be "the law" was only a tutor until we were blessed with the spirit of Christ, then we no longer needed "the law." The rest of Galations talks about other old laws like circumcision in the same context:
In chapter 4 it says that Hagar the bondwoman's enslaved children represent the covenant handed down to Moses from Mount Sinai (the 10 Commandments plus about 600 others), and the free woman's son represents Jesus ("through the promise"). And we are children of the free woman, not the bondwoman.Originally Posted by Galations 5
There's a lot of metaphorical stuff to wade through, but the conclusion I get is that since Jesus was here, we should "cast out the bondwoman" and only practice laws that coincide with the spirit and teachings of Jesus.Originally Posted by Galations 4
Also just so you know, I don't necessarily believe everything in the Bible. I have serious doubts that any of it was inspired by God. I'm just familiar with how some Christians explain why they're allowed to eat pork and mix cotton and polyester in the same wardrobe.
I dont mean to offend anyone because I'm not really religious but it is a sin to kill a person to my knowledge, so shouldnt they be going after the killers?
And when people do listen to their god and all will everything start to get better or what?
Does all this mean that Bush didn't really make a mistake to go to war he just wanted people to see how the reality of beliving god is???
Putting down universities and trying to make one better than the other is to dismiss the concept of learning in what is referred to (justifiably so) as HIGHER EDUCATION.
As far as your bigotry against Brits you've clearly identified yourself to everyone here.
