you said some of God's direct laws, in the old testament, are open to intrepretation:
My dad(and I do too) also plants multiple crops in the same garden. *
My mom wears mixed clothing. *
I shave. *
I have touched dead pigs(not that it was all that fun). *
I pray in *His presence every day, and I have horrible eyesight. *The
Sabbeth isn't difined as Sunday, just as a day of the week when no one works(and in America it happens to be Sunday) *It depends on where you stand with God
Oh, I forgot, this was the Jewish law. *We(or at least most of us) are Gentiles.
So you are saying some of God's laws in YOUR christian bible we dont all have to follow exactly to the letter of the law..
I agree with you on that! [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/biggrin.gif[/img]
but..if we both believe that, why should your one verse that supposidely shows God is against gay marriage hold any weight?
why is THAT one verse NOT open to intrepretation while all those other old verses you get to conviently ignore?
When you yourself say no one has to literally follow everything the bible says, why should we care that one verse might sound like it prohibits gay marriage?
you cant have it both ways...either you follow the bible or you dont..
and if you dont follow ALL of the bible then you have no credibility when you say all of us in the entire world *should* follow this one teeny verse..and make it into law..
in other words..why should we believe the Bible when you yourself dont even follow it 100%?
Why cant we ALL decide, just like you, that we will pick and choose what verses we will follow, and what verses we will ignore?
If we all want to ignore that Romans verse of yours, why shouldnt we?
you ignore verses too..
Why cant an individuals intrepretation of the Bible be based on *"It depends on where you stand with God"?
and if that is true..why should we base laws on YOUR intrepretation on the Bible based on where YOU personally stand with God?
believe what you like..thats fine..but laws effect everyone..
thanks for admitting you dont have a non-bible based arguement..
but..the bible is irrelevant to law.
YOU need it that way so that YOU are FREE to hold your OWN religious beliefs!!!
If religion starts to be used as a basis of laws, your religion would probably be the first to be outlawed..
