    Seems to me that your assaults on modern morality fall to pieces in light of that admission.

    In general most of our morals are better than most of the worlds...

    In focus on marriage, the opposite is true

    To be honest I always wished my life was a lot more simple...

    Sure I am successful in building construction, etc. but I continually look back and think about all the simple things in life I am missing out on...

    I live in an area where there are Amish.

    They're kooks, make no mistake. I've met some wealthy Amish if you can believe that. Millionaires - on making those quilts and furniture and selling them everywhere.

    And no, they didn't ride a pimped-up buggy.

    Guess I don't know a lot about the Amish ways...just the thought of taking a very long break from the rat-race society is a dream of mine

    I don't claim to be an expert on them, but in one area to the west of me, the entire county is primarily Amish.

    I've visited hospitals in that area on business and they have special shelters set up for the children that have severe birth defects caused by inbreeding.

    It's sad, and no - I don't get it. I don't understand what the benefit is of having no electricity, no phones, no car - and stupidity breeds stupidity and their children will continue to live isolated, backwards lives.

    Once again it has nothing to do with personal experience. Your whole premise is that jailing adulterers is better for society. Yet you can not show how. You don't have a solid argument, just an opinion... as usual.

    When you've decided that standing on your head is the right way to view the world then of course everything looks upside down.

    It says none of the above.

    Jesus is telling the people that desire can be bad. This is NOT a passage about creating law forbidding adultery as adultery is already presumed wrong. Matthew 5:28 (King James Version) :: Forerunner Commentary :: Bible Tools

    Thus, the question remains, HOW WAS ADULTERY DEFINED?

    this is irrelevant.
    That's tolling.

    ***
    I agree with the qualified interpritations of others.

    For example:
    Biblical View of Adultery
    Hebrews 13:4 --- The writer of Hebrews declares, "Let marriage be held in honor among all, and let the marriage bed be undefiled; for fornicators and adulterers God will judge." The Expositor's Bible Commentary explains that the phrase "marriage bed" is simply "a euphemism for sexual intercourse" (vol. 12, p. 146). "The marriage union is divinely ordained, and its sacred precincts must not be polluted by the intrusion of a third party, of either sex" (Dr. F.F. Bruce, The Epistle to the Hebrews, p. 392).
    I find these interpritations more credable then your mere say-so.

    So if I find a source who says otherwise you'll believe my argument? Do we want to go down that route?

    Or can we instead make the arguments ourselves rather than making appeals to authority?

    You're not bringing anything new to the table.

    Jerry, I just asked you "if I bring X to the table will you find it valid?".

    I'm not going to waste my time with you if you can't even debate honestly by answering a such a simple question.
