Thats not the context of leviticus but ok.
Ya some moronic verses in the bible satan put in there to kick the message in the ass later on like predicted.
Surely you've got a better interpretation in mind.
id never heard of it until you brought it up once before
Even if what this guy said is flawed, it goes to show you how many interpretations there ARE of the bible and it's verses.
Please, again, someone tell me why I should believe the bible?
Yes, precisely. It's use is on grounds of pure manipulation.
And it amazes me that people still think they have a leg to stand on with "bible's the truth". :/
Some of those people don't even have a 'leg', and somehow accept the excuses made for that being the case, for that having been permitted by their beloved 'God'. Smh
Saddens me blind acceptance still lingers around.
Ditto. I have friends who are devout Christians or Catholics etc,. and a grandmother who is Anglican. Religion is all around me. There are not too many people who share my way of thinking, Nightmare and my son being two of them. What's funny, is I never shared my thoughts on the subject with my son, as not only did I not want to influence him, but I was still embracing it myself. HE came to ME with HIS views. Smart boy.
Well, my grandmother pulled the plug on all religious matters, whilst others that I was in contact with throughout my life were devout to their belief system. So from an early age I got to know just how sad&twisted people representing religion really were.
I've always been of the opinion that children shouldn't be molded into a religion until they're of age and know what they're getting themselves into.
But then again, why join something that doesn't allow you to think for yourself? Seems so pointless.
I have said those exact words a few times myself throughout these threads.
IF religion is to be taught in schools etc., then I believe children should be taught both aspects (belief and non-belief)...same as evolution etc. Teach them everything, and let them make up their own minds.
Instead, they are taught only one: who God is and to believe in Him and the bible. Now THAT is brainwashing, you ask me.
theres nothing wrong with religion, its the sects or versions of religions that become harmful
all religion teaches good life lessons and morals. Is it necessary? no, is it unecessary? no.
Schools should be religion neutral, but taught about as you've pointed out all aspects and made aware of all religions, not only revolve everything around only one.
I remember being forced to attend "bible study" by my elementary school teacher. It was when my brilliant parents thought it was a good idea to get a house in the country. Suffice to say I was asked by the priest to never return and my father dealt with the school.
Isn't that what religion is? Different belief systems based on one bible and the different manipulations of it?
Also, those morals and life lessons can be taught without religion ever being mentioned.
yeah but all im saying is that theres nothing wrong with it if its not used for naegative things
live and let live.
Catholic church has a 2000 year worth of upper hand on making religion a way to keep people manipulated.
It's any institution behind it that is dangerous, not only sects.
Think the only "religion" that comes close to being a good thing is Buddhism.
it works because its a philosophy not a religion
