If God/Jesus does not know sex and reproduction, he is not f

If God/Jesus does not know sex and reproduction, he is not fit to dictate it’s laws. If God/Jesus, does not know of man’s sexuality, then he has no right or just claim to dictate our sexual conduct. He does not have the skill set or knowledge required to judge. No carnal desires, no wife, no pure bo...

Re: Do commandments and threats negate free will?

"Do commands and threats negate your idea of what free will is?" Not really. Using your same example, when children leave home, you said, you supposedly lost your right to imposse your standars on them. But that happens in the case when they leave your home. According to the Biblical teaching God i...

Re: Christian men and their deteriorating moral and family v

It is improper for the government to make laws against behavior that some Christians find objectionable, such as Sunday liquor sales, as one example, Christians find it objectionable to give women and Gays equality. Should we take those equality provisions out of our laws? Welcome to Iran. Regards ...

Christian men and their deteriorating moral and family value

Christian men and their deteriorating moral and family values. As a member of our predominantly Christian nation, you and I have witnessed a marked deterioration in morality and family values. Children start at an early age to sample the pleasures life offers them in the world of drugs, sex, autonom...

Re: Lilith or Eve? Female equality or not?

Any religion that promotes the idea of a masculine god will have the effect of women being lesser beings. Even if the practitioners do not intend for that to happen, it will. It's best to scrap all superstitious nonsense, and one of the reasons is there has been way too much sexism for far too long...

Found. The third and Final Testament.

Found. The third and Final Testament. The third and Final Testament is being written by Gnostic thinkers and the only truth that you can trust. The reason that you will trust it is simply because it is your truth based on your understanding of reality and largely based on your feelings. That is why ...

Re: God has all attributes including evil iniquity.

[ I see it more as a curse that we have to kill, cheat, betray, steal, in order to survive. Our fate has a striking resemblance to the notion of being expelled from paradise, which is probably why Genesis is such a powerful story. Interesting ideas though, definitely worth thinking about. Thanks. A...

Re: God has all attributes including evil iniquity.

I cannot name any iniquity that is good and only added the word evil because believers say that God only creates good things. I think this has been answered millions of times already... How would God give man free will without allowing for evil? How can people be free to choose if they are not free...
