That is not murder. They people committed suicide.
So if you have a kid and tell them to obey you, and they don't, and you kill them, they've commited suicide?
If the people did not mock and had believed they would have taken their babies into the ark too. And as for the animals, when in time of natural disasters...what happens to the animals?
If God had wanted to keep the innocent babies safe he could have. But he decided they should die for what their parents did. Would you kill the baby of a murderer?
God could have protected the animals too, but chose not to. Would you drown a puppy, even if it had no soul?
He did not do anything to be crucified.
Perhaps not, but Judas and the soldiers should be commended for making sure he died for our sins... right? Didn't their actions save us all?
If I quote from the bible does that mean I can't think of my own answers too? I am giving you some evidence which ofcourse you would not accept.
You needed the apologetics to get you out of a tough spot. I wouldn't be surprised if most of the 'intelligent sounding' stuff you post isn't your own thinking. Using the Bible to back the Bible up is circular logic. No evidence there.
It takes the Holy Spirit to reveal the meaning. Do you accept it?
No. I will not listen to a voice in my head when there is scientific evidence to prove the Bible wrong. If you want to trust a feeling because you're afraid of death, that's up to you.
The Lord of the Rings is fiction. Everyone knows that. The Bible is real and historical.
Prove it. Don't try and prove it by saying there are some historical towns and leaders mentioned, that doesn't make the whole thing true.
Whether you choose to believe me or not....you will discover the truth one day....most definitely. I hope it wouldn't be too late for you. You are determining your future...do you know what happens when you die?
No I don't. Religions have made all kinds of threats about that. Perhaps I will end up in helheim (from Norse religion) or Duat (from Egyptian religion), perhaps you will too. Maybe you've chosen the wrong god to worship. I know I won't end up in any Biblical hell though, because that god certainly doesn't exist. It's a shame fear has held you captive to this myth.
