Spot on Andrew. He makes complete sense, Hambone, unlike Clay's New Progressive World Order Cartoons.

What that Means for Us

Well Said, Andrew--as usual.
I've got work to do mtngrl. I trust Mountain Girls do to !
Prove it ! That's laughable
No Easy, I'll leave you to yourself. I'm completely "OK" with your unbelief. Scripture is actually OK with it too.
Enjoy your world and your ( hopefully 70-80 ) years on this earth.
Easy123 said... Your god never seems to punish any of those things.
You don't really digest & understand what you read do you Easy ?
Truth be told: like most atheist, you cherry pick certain verse to attempt to support your point of view.
Truth be told: You've probably never really read the Bible for yourself...much less with the thought that it might be true.
Spare me your foolishness, Mtngirl: You cannot walk around without unintentionally squashing tiny bugs if you are Buddhist.
I would venture you've squashed many in your day like we all have. There is an order to creation. Men are told to subdue that order of creation and take dominion over it. There are also portions of Scripture that suggest Good men treat their animals well.
Just to name one:
10 Whoever is righteous has regard for the life of his beast,
but the mercy of the wicked is cruel.
Fair enough, Easy. If you had 5 sisters: 8, 10, 12, 15, 16 and one man wants to marry them all, how many people will you invite to the wedding ? You can argue law based on pragmatism but you can't just forbid it because it's not Pragmatic. You can do better.
Easy states: "There are universal standards that nearly every sane individual holds true."
Tis true. The natural law is not "innate", for we are NOT born knowing it -- although as soon as the child is capable of understanding what is meant by "murder" and by "wrong", he is capable of recognizing that murder, in fact, is wrong. The natural law is not mere biological instinct--although it does take account of certain biological realities, for the practical of love in context of family life would no doubt be somewhat different among beings who had one sex or whose young were ready to assume the responsibilities of adulthood as soon as they hatched out.
The natural law is not mere custom--although the customs of almost all times and places more or less acknowledge it. The natural law is not just a deceptive name for moral law as known through the Bible--although biblical moral law acknowledges it, conforms to it, and extends it.
John Calvin, to name just one Reformer, believed that the natural law was "stamped upon the heart and mind and known through conscience."
Similarly: ALL men know what their bodies and sexual organs where meant for. To shove one in the area meant for expulsion is KNOWN functionally, morally...and ethically as wrong. Problem is: Men ( and women in turn ) want to do it simply because their minds are base and immoral and they want to do what they want to do. Plain and simple.
