And of course, the classic, most famous instance of God ordering someone to commit murder

Hey, thanks again for posting the Craig site. I spent quite a bit of time this weekend going through the Q&A. Some interesting stuff there.

Re: Jesus on Homosexuality

I support the rights and equality of women. I'm a feminist. I really don't think the Bible promotes feminism. Do you?

I take the Bible in it's historical context. From that perspective, the Bible, especially Jesus and the NT, were [more]

Re: Jesus on Homosexuality

Ehrman had, it seems to me, a flawed theological system of beliefs as a Christian. It seems that at the center of his web of theological beliefs was biblical inerrancy, and everything else, like the beliefs in the deity of Christ and in his [more]

Saw this on a website and was wondering, how many of those that respond "None" to surveys on religion would consider themselves followers of Jesus Christ with no religion?

Re: "...I tried to kill myself..."

I would think at least some fear was utilized during your childhood (albeit perhaps not as extreme as this). Fear of making god angry, or disappointing him, etc. You've described your home as rather fundamentalist (YEC, as I recall - are your [more]

Re: "...I tried to kill myself..."

Not quite the same as an 11-yr old girl.

How many 11 yr olds try to kill themselves so they can go to heaven? Hate to say it, but sounds like there was some mental illness involved.

I think the book should be banned. No, not the Bible, this one:

Re: Jesus on Homosexuality

I'm appealing to the standards of the golden rule/empathy/love your neighbor. Homosexuals don't hurt heterosexuals. They contribute to a successful society. The ones I know are as ordinary as anyone else. They want what I have - a happy family [more]

Re: Jesus on Homosexuality

Can you demonstrate why is it authoritative?

Is it authoritative for the Christian because many generations of Christians have thought so?

Re: Jesus on Homosexuality

Some people try to read it as metaphor and allegory, fable and myth. And it becomes a ventriloquist's dummy. It says what we want it to say.

When we read it as such, how can it be considered authoritative?

After this, I wonder what remains in the scriptures that can be considered authoritative?

Sounds to me like you reached a conclusion, then went looking for something to support it.

Except for a distorted view of Genesis, I [more]

I don't think it speaks to the issue at all and am pretty sure I've argued that before.

Re: Free will revisited

I don't see how that's a problem. He interpreted his work one way and others interpret it another.

Would you have a problem with people who claim his work (and others like him) "prove" there is no free will?
