  •  You neglected other verses in what you posted (0+ / 0-)

    For example, Luke 1:41 says, "And it came to pass, that, when Elisabeth heard the salutation of Mary, the babe leaped in her womb; and Elisabeth was filled with the Holy Ghost.  Clearly it shows the Bible considers it a human, by using the word "babe," instead of a lump of cells, or mass, ect.  You also have, like your post stated, Gen 25:22 "and the children struggled together within her; and she said, If it be so, why am I thus?" There is no term for "fetus" in the Bible because it's a child. The Bible has no fallacies in it, it's the very essence of God.  That website did a horrible job of trying to clarify some of these verses they chose.  

    You just wonderfully stated why it's a horrible time to move, and clearly how hard it is, so why don't you stop complaining about the "people" around you. I know how hard it is to move thank you. I helped friends move from here to FL this past summer, I saw friends move to IL, and from GA to CO. I know the costs of moving. So stop treating my like an idiot.

    I'm sorry, but I can do nothing else but share with you what is in the Bible.  If you've ever actually read the Bible like you claim, you know it says in Mark 16:15 "And he said unto them, Go ye into all the world, and preach the gospel to every creature." So I cannot sit idle by and not share with you what changed my life, when God has given Christian's a mandate to share what we know with others.  The Bible has been around for thousands of years, and no matter how much people try to take it out of society, and yet it still changes peoples lives everyday. The truth hurts, but it's needed in our society.  Truth like the Bible  "The Word of God is quick and powerful, sharper than any two edged sword, piercing even to dividing asunder of the soul and spirit, and of the joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart." as stated in Hebrews 4:12.  

    You are correct in that most religious are similar on the idea of there being 1 God. However, many people, for whatever reason find it hard to believe that there is only 1 way to Heaven, you even said you believe that everyone finds their own way.  Why do you truly believe that though? What have you read that convinces you this is the truth, and that there couldn't possibly be only one way to peace and happiness like I believe?  Catholics add works with faith, Muslims do to an extent, and then you have the religious fanatics in the Muslim religion that believe to get into Heaven they must die a martyr. You have Buddhism that says we are reborn in death, as another form of energy, Hinduism that believes in multiple gods.  You clearly believe there is something beyond this life, whether you acknowledge it or not.  Otherwise, you wouldn't bother with anything that doesn't deal with science.  You yourself said you believe we find our path, but where does that path lead? You said you don't believe in Hell, so you can't say Heaven.  You cannot believe in Heaven, (which would be a place of peace and rest) if you don't, deep down believe there is a place of torment, and you want to be kept away from that place.

    Your condensation about me being and idiot for being 19, and how you said I couldn't possibly know why I believe what I do at my age, as well as you believing what you believe because you've "studied," doesn't bother me.  You can try that tactic all you want, but I remain unfazed because I know what I believe, and why I believe what I do. I'm not some teen who is just saying what I've been taught.  I've seen Christ change my life, and the lives of others around me.  You will either believe the Bible, or you will hate it because you can't stand being told what is moral and what isn't, and I can only pray that everyone in the world comes to a saving faith in Christ, and that no one ever has to suffer for their sin, no matter how much we deserve it.
