Reducing people's religious beliefs to justification and to picking things in order to fit a lifestyle is belittling. Nothing in Nukes post suggests picking and choosing to justify anything - this is a strawman. Your posts in response to me and her show that you take any rejection of certain parts of the Bible as 1) Less than your take on the Bible. 2) Done for the purpose of justification. Neither of these things is true.Who is belittling anyone? This is what the Bible says and what Nuke again implied and many others, end of story.
As for my comment it is exactly correct to what Nuke said. If you throw away this part and that to fit your own beliefs regardless of what the scripture says, you can justify anything, period.
Moreover, you continue to imply that people are "making up gods" based on Christian teachings as if the Christian God is particularly original. Almost any God that anyone believes in will have similarities with the God in Christian teachings - it doesn't mean that someone is picking and choosing parts of the Christian God to believe in in some sneeky/slimy little way - it means that ideas of God exist and they are often similar.
Moreover, your repeated use of phrases like "throw away this and that" continue to misrepresent the words in Nuke's post. Again - it isn't about picking and choosing to justify - it's about following whatever agrees with one's heart and reason.
