If thy brother, the son of thy mother, or thy son, or thy daughter, or the wife of thy bosom, or thy friend, which is as thine own soul, entice thee secretly, saying, Let us go and serve other gods, which thou hast not known, thou, nor thy fathers; Namely, of the gods of the people which are round about you... Thou shalt not consent unto him, nor hearken unto him; neither shall thine eye pity him, neither shalt thou spare, neither shalt thou conceal him: But thou shalt surely kill him; thine hand shall be first upon him to put him to death, and afterwards the hand of all the people. And thou shalt stone him with stones, that he die. Deuteronomy 13:6-10

I think I should be!

So you think politics and religious establishments best represent Christianity?
If so could you link some of what Jesus taught that would solidify that assertion please? Thanks.
Obviously you have no idea what our values are. If you want to know some in particular just ask.

Yes, let the Christians move to someplace like the Middle East where their values are more parallel to those of the government.

So you think politics and religious establishments best represent Christianity?
If so could you link some of what Jesus taught that would solidify that assertion please? Thanks.
Obviously you have no idea what our values are. If you want to know some in particular just ask.

That's not true.

You do know it's immoral to lie EtrnlVw don't you?

I asked you a question, what's with you and accusing of lying again, we have enough people accusing others already. Get original or get lost.

You said I think that politics and religious establishments best represent Christianity.

This is not true, I have never thought that.

I asked you is what you mean, do you know what a question mark is??

I asked you that based on your comment, just wanted to see what your views are that's why I asked.

My comment on post 13 was not addressed to you, then you tried to use it to avoid my questions in posts 12, 15 and 19.

If you answer my question in post 12 then I will answer your question.

Actually EtrnlVw, I understand why you will not answer the question in post 12 and I have to at least give you credit for being intelligent enough not to answer it.

You have two Theists posting in this thread, the questions are not mine to answer, so far you have been unable to discern that, very weird I must say.....

I think I should be!

I'm clearly offended. They left out thy sister, daughter of thy mother. What? she chopped liver?

I don't think you know what American is. For one this country is NOT America. It is the United States. The landmass this country inhabits is America. HENCE why THIS countries name is UNITED STATES !of! America.

So thanks for not even knowing the name of your country.

I doubt you have even read the work by the founding fathers. I also think what you call American is the left agenda and Marxist communism pushed down our throats in the last 2 decades.

Every man wishes to pursue his occupation and to enjoy the fruits of his labours and the produce of his property in peace and safety, and with the least possible expense. When these things are accomplished, all the objects for which government ought to be established are answered. <- does that sound like welfare state. Does that sound like a government that charges you rent, sorry taxes, when you "buy" a piece of land?

That government is best which governs the least, because its people discipline themselves. <- does that sound like the federal government we have now? trying to implement a national police force as well organized and funded as the military? (Obama wants such a Gestapo.)

All those were quotes from Thomas Jefferson.

And from the first president of the United States of America.

Let us with caution indulge the supposition that morality can be maintained without religion. Reason and experience both forbid us to expect that national morality can prevail in exclusion of religious principle.

Hm, why exactly? Given the fact that you're referencing a book [Deuteronomy] that was written almost 3000 years ago. Rather than being reflective of Christianity as a whole, this *single* passage only provides an insight into the historical circumstances of ancient Israel.

Additionally, New Testament teachings differ greatly to those of what Christians view as the "Old Testament"; where there is significantly more emphasis on strict adherence to traditional Hebrew *law*. An example would a comparison of this passage to John 8-11[NT].

Once again though, you're not required to take any biblical teaching literally--especially if you disagree with it.
Commentator on a picture with David Cameron and a Cat: 'Amazing what you can achieve with photoshop these days. I'm sure that used to be a pig.'

Commentator on Hillary Clinton: 'If Clinton is now what passes for progressive, maybe this country deserves Trump.'

Commentator on British parliament: 'All that talent in one place, where is Ebola when you need it?'

John Kerry on words: 'These aren't just words, folks.'

The "it only says that in the old testament" argument doesn't fly anymore. The gay marriage issue is entirely centered on what it says in the old testament. Picking and choosing what you want to believe is not what god instructs you to do. You take the bible as a holy book which represents your thoughts and beliefs and the fact that it's full of bigotry some of which is directed at atheists makes you a part of the problem and does not remove your responsibility from the issue.

Well this is all simply irrelevant but at least you tried.

Yeah I had you two mixed up but that's understandable because all you guys spout the same nonsense. You are like clones.
