God lied to Abraham when he tested him in Genesis 22. Unless you're saying the Angel at the end of the story *wasn't* speaking for God.
Yes, they'll stick with literal on that one, until and unless it is proven he didn't...then, we'll learn about how it was meant to be taken figuratively all along. I mean, you can't just say it is nonsense, right?
Never mind the quality.... feel the Width, my son! I had a mate who was a Jewish Tailor. His missus made the best potato Latkas, salt beef and pickles, I ever tasted ;) And his Rabbi was as funny as a sack of gentiles!
a broken lamp should have triggered the breaker. i would really get stuff checked out. maybe sprinklers put in. that way,, even if the three stooges alarm company screws up, the fire wont spread. im sure good dog walkers are hard to find. i hear they are like baby sitter.s
That's a good point.
Building on what you say:
Care to provide a rundown of your scientific qualifications, including education, experience, fields of specialty and contributions to mainstream, peer-reviewed scientific publications. Without these qualifications, you are in no position to opine on any scientific matter, much less biology and especially evolution.
I have no belief that there are no gods. If there are any gods, they couldn't care less about us, and the feeling is mutual.
I would think that since it is "scripture" that talks about the "apocalypse," it would be scriptural definition that would be used as the definition to assess the topic under discussion. It would be the scriptural definition that would be "spot on" for the purpose of discussion. It's having happened or not is irrelevant.
Look up the history of the Muslim ban. That's what Trump called it on the campaign trail and it didn't go over well or fit the constitution. So, he took the idea to an attorney (Rudy Giuliani) and said, "How can we do this legally." This is well documented and not "fake news" or "alternative facts." Giuliani said, "Make it about regions instead of religions." Now you know how it became a travel ban.
Research the tax status for Trinity Wall Street and be thoroughly appalled.
Women does this too and sometimes it's just for sex...no trophies
You said "If your basis of objective morality is a collective of subjective humans, well then you have no objective measure."
So who's the other virgin birth kid in the first fulfillment of this prophecy? There are two sons of God?? Simply put, the Book of Matthew ripped Isaiah 7:14 completely out of context. Moreover, if, as missionaries argue, the Hebrew word almah can only mean a ?virgin,? and, as they insist, Isaiah 7:14 was fulfilled twice, who was the first virgin to conceive during Ahaz?s lifetime? Were there two virgin births?
Well... I had the same approach. An open discussion. The love is there. That paper is a contract. Is a legal way to protect that person you love. I would rather spend that money traveling than on a wedding where I feel like I have to please everyone but myself.
Right...I'd forgotten those...
