underlying message of the bible
    #1484062 - 04/22/03 10:25 PM (13 years, 7 months ago)

last night, i was hanging out with some die hard christians. somehow we got onto the subject of this transvestive/gay club. one of the guys accidentally went in there thinking it was a regualr bar. they said something along the lines of "ewww gross! doesnt that make you want to go home a take a long hot shower" i guess he implied to wipe the 'gayness' off. i thought to myself, what a fucking hypocrite. the underlying message of the bible is love, compassion, and acceptance. people shouldnt follow the bible word for word. if people say they do, then their lying. do they "stone disobediant children", and other horrible things which the bible tells you to do? no. anyways, you can use the bible to back up any arguement you want. while we allowed slaves in the u.s., we said, "people had slaves in the bible" so it must be alright to have slaves! there are countless other examples of this....anywho, just wanted to share that.

What the hell are you thinking? The "word of god" you speak of has been passed down for generations and then interpreted 4 times before you got the book you have. The whole sacred thing has been misinterpreted man, the word is gone. sorry

"those guys sound lame"

haha, after hearing a short story about these people i can allready think of two reasons not to chill with them anymore. You should have them stoned for not following the bible by being kind. Its what they would have wanted

Go through the orange yesterday

I watched intently for a while to both sides, infront of me and behind me.
I was impressed to learn there was another way to look... UP!
More impressive still was the fact that there were beautiful stars in this direction
Most amazing fact of all was the prospect of another direction when I was done with up. DOWN! Which, based on the feel through my toes would be a fine sandy beach!

Rubbish. The Bible teaches to reject the things of the world and the flesh, and to seek afte rthe spirit instead, not to accept perversion and filth as "normal". You must have a different Bible than the one I've read if yours says that. BTW, mine is a King James Version.

Oddly enough, all versions of the Bible I've seen - including the KJV - are about ALL of those things...or was making a one-sided point the point?  :wink:

My Bible is pretty clear about accepting perversion and societies that do so. Moral stories like Soddom and Gommorah for instance, or verses that say homosexuals should be put to death and will never enter the kingdom of heaven.

AND it's about turning the other cheek AND accepting others AND that "all is permissible" AND so on...

dude, we're agreeing -- it's just that there's not ONE point to the Bible.

It doesn't say that all things are permissible. I htink you're taking one verse out of context where Paul says that he can do anything or words to that effect. Is this accurate?

Great - just the time for me to forget where that verse specifically was, but...
Acts 10:9-16
On the next day, as they were on their way and approaching the city, Peter went up on the housetop about the sixth hour to pray.
But he became hungry and was desiring to eat; but while they were making preparations, he fell into a trance;
and he *saw the sky opened up, and an object like a great sheet coming down, lowered by four corners to the ground, and there were in it all kinds of four-footed animals and crawling creatures of the earth and birds of the air. A voice came to him, "Get up, Peter, kill and eat!" But Peter said, "By no means, Lord, for I have never eaten anything unholy and unclean." Again a voice came to him a second time, "What God has cleansed, no longer consider unholy." This happened three times, and immediately the object was taken up into the sky.

In refutation of the Old Testament, the New Testament says something else, to indicate the new order of things under the Christ.

But that wasn't my point -- the point was that yes, the Bible has harsh stuff in it, but also has stuff about compassion, kindness and the like.


But pleasssssssssssssse tell me you see what I'm trying to say here?

Anything can be used to justify anything, you can twist the words of how something is written or what somebody said to be used in your favor or belief too

Sadly i think that majority of bible followers and believers are somewhat closed minded (or not very open to new ideas because it may go against the bible or their religion), i dont mean that to be offensive to anybody ofcourse but thats just how i see it basicaly
