Thread: America is a Christian Nation

  1. #981
    Gay marriages just became legal in NC. A number of magistrates have quit or refused to perform gay marriages because the bible says it is a sin.

    Now how many pregnant brides have they killed, or at least refused to perform the marriage, because the same book of non-sense also says that if the bride is not a virgin she should be put to death?

    Or like most Christians are they nothing but a bunch of cherry picking hypocrites.

    1. You shall have no other gods before Me. - NOPE
    2. You shall not make idols. - NOPE
    3. You shall not take the name of the LORD your God in vain. - NOPE
    4. Remember the Sabbath day, to keep it holy. - NOPE
    5. Honor your father and your mother. - NOPE
    6. You shall not murder. and every other country/society on the planet.
    7. You shall not commit adultery. - NOPE (a crime in 23 states, but nothing at the federal level)
    8. You shall not steal. and every other country/society on the planet
    9. You shall not bear false witness against your neighbor. NOPE to vague Lying to a cop, or under oath, is a crime, but otherwise there's no law against lying.
    10. You shall not covet. - NOPE


    So NO, just another false premise.

    A. There is a difference between something being "legal" and something being forced upon those with religious objections. Can you provide any evidence of someone being prosecuted or jailed for marrying two gay people? I know of several recent cases where people have been fined and or lost cases because they refused to participate in a gay marriage. I am sure they could find people that would perform the ceremony, but that would defeat the agenda of having it viewed as discrimination and legislated as such.

    Of course, they've been told that countless times (also that the "commandments" are more or less common to about 10,000 religions throughout history many predating Christianity)...but they continue to indulge in one of the many Big Christian Lies (that our laws are based on the TCs) reasoning, I suppose, that fibbing isn't prohibited (except false witness against neighbors) and in any event lying for Jesus is inherently OK.

    The non-virgin bride shall be stoned to death at the city gates by the elders.

    Of course your sky daddy himself was all about ordering the first born of every family be murdered.

    Evidently you have Christianity mixed up with Islam.

    Muslim scholars teach that Muslims should generally be truthful to each other, unless the purpose of lying is to "smooth over differences."

    There are two forms of lying to non-believers that are permitted under certain circumstances, taqiyya and kitman.

    These circumstances are typically those that advance the cause Islam - in some cases by gaining the trust of non-believers in order to draw out their vulnerability and defeat them.

    All atheists revert to Old Testament laws, doctrines etc. when they want to argue against Christianity. Read the New Testament, it is about Christ and is where the "Christ" in Christianity comes from. In short it removes all requirements of the old law (see Leviticus for the full list along with their punishments) especially those that require the killing of those that sin against God.

    Actually, if you are going to argue against something, you should probably give it a read and maybe know something about it.

    The religion also required blood sacrifices at that time. The faithful were being persecuted, enslaved etc, and vengeance was taken on non-believers. All any of them had to do was place the blood of a sacrificed lamb on their door and the "creeping death" would pass them by. But God didn't "order" the killing of firstborn, and there were no Christians running around Egypt doing the deed. He did it himself, and since you acknowledge that it happened, you are then also acknowledging the God that did it. Metallica did a song about it, it's on their "Ride The Lightning" album, you should check it out...

    Unlike the haters...WE will bid them adieu in following their skymonkey.
    1 Corinthians 1:18 NLT
    The message of the cross is foolish to those who are headed for destruction! But we who are being saved know it is the very power of God.

    sinful nature is always hostile to God....
