Your post as the OP comes across as not very intelligent but textbook of todays people trying to rationalize their individuality. The problem I see is
that most of us have a poor grasp of history or economics and customs of the time.
Many use this concept or idea you post 8BitOperator to attack the Bible or The Word without knowing what the nations around the mid east were doing
among their people through their religions and holy books at the time the Bible or The Word was written. People who know this history would be shocked
to know what was going on in other nations..inclcuding the sacrifice of their children and particularly the first born.
Rampant runaway sexuality and debauchery around the pagan holidays and festivals...open and public.
This history is carefully hidden from most of us unless we learn to read carefully..not only from Biblical sources but from secular as well. It can be
found and it makes Hugh Hefner and the like look like kindergarden children in order to justify whatever men could rationalize.
One of the things the Bible teaches its Believers is that they do not identify themselves as to whom and what they are by their sexuality...male or
female. For the nations surrounding Ancient Israel were already doing this very thing. This is the part of history that is hidden and concealed from
us but can be found in certain careful reading of the Bible.
The Children of God were to identify themselves by the God who lived in them daily. Not by their sexuality...ever.
Once one knows this fingerprint you can look around you at how people think or don't think today and see rampant cultivated stupidity trying to pass
There are those of us out here ..however few ..who think that people should be more than sex and sexuality..much much more.
People define themselves historically by their lineage, their occupations, or some great work they have done and left to posterity..never by their
sexuality. Only public education can dumb a people down this far into institutional stupidity.
For people are so much more than sex and sexuality..and this was in fact what the nations around Ancient Israel were doing all the time and
particularly around their holidays and festivals.
Try to find a public school teacher or for all that matter a minister who will teach you this history..they are hardly to be found anywhere while
cultivating standard stupidity.
All glory was to go to God..in the manner these people dressed, planted their fields, ate. prepared their food etc etc..raised their children..all
this to show that they were not like the nations surrounding them. They were not to do as the nations surrounding them did.
This is missing from your OP...carte blanche and replaced with man made logic and reason. This is also called in the Bible
as "The Traditions of Men"
Once one knows for what to look ...it is glaringly missing from your OP..and replaced with the traditions of men. No problem by me..I merely point
This is also missing from what attempts to pass for intelligence in public schooling today in order to get everyone stamped out the same. This is not
a Biblical principle.
You also do not seem to know the economic principles of the time ..the hardships..the lack of time saving machinery and the effects it has on a
In an economically affluent social structure... for which we take for granted today..you can afford such time warp thinking or foolishness..but not in
third world nations..which is what most nations were back then when the Bible was written.
The Hebrews as a people did not suffer most of the health maladies for which most of the other nations suffered due to the lack of refigeration ..or
food preparation knowledge. This knowledge was given to these people to help them and to show that they were not like the nations surrounding them.
This knowledge also had health benefits to them.
This also is not taught today as we take refrigertion for granted. It was always not so..even here in America.
This by 3NL1GHT3N3D1 is textbook of what tries to pass for intelligence today ..reason and logic. It just does not make good nonsense to those who
know how the history and Bible read
Of course it can, that's the exact reason it was created, to justify inhumane acts. It was used to justify the Inquisitions and Crusades so
it can be used to justify anything.
One cannot justify a crusade nor a inquesition by the Bible. For there exist no such instruction in the Bible to convert people by the sword nor the
burning at the stake. This puts a unique light on Islam here. There is no such instruction to kill unbelievers in the Bible. Nor is there any such
instruction to have a holy city here on this earth...particularly in the New Testament.
For the Kingdom to a Believer is not of this world...
This knowledge alone should tell you what Jerusalem today is..so too with Rome and any other so called Holy City. They are counterfeits. Traditions of
This alone should tell you sufficiently to know that the RCC is operating outside of the Biblical instructions for a church and has by this ...lost
the candle stick. No Christian Church has any such instruction to so do according to the "Traditions of Men" being substituted for Bible Doctrine.
This substitution is a phony and a counterfeit.
But most of us are not trained to spot a counterfeit..either by public education nor by our Ministers...but Biblical training and thought can teach
this to one if one pays attention to the details.
The Inquisition and the Crusades are historical examples of the "Traditions of Men " being substituted for the Word of God..a counterfeit and phony.
This should tell you the name of the god involved here...the Counterfeitter...without most even knowing it.
People who today try to teach this to people as reason and logic...about the crusades and inquesition are getting people to take a huge bite out of a
counterfeit principle as if it were true...it is not true once you know.
The Roman Catholic Church had switched gods and told no one they had done this . Switched gods to the counterfeitter...the liar and deceiver..and told
no one they had done this.
There are other examples of counterfeit doctrines and beliefs in the Bible .."The Traditions of Men" attempting to be passed off as truth by very
educated peoples. Once you know...them you can spot more of them around you ..daily...and by supposedly educated people.
Just some informations for you and the readers out here. No cover charge.
