I’ll remember this argument the next abortion debate. I actually agree with it. But you are as a Christian commanded to be a light to the world. Different from atheists and other religions.
If a woman chooses an abortion, it's not for me to condemn, it's her choice
Yes Christians are called to be the light, we are not, sad isn't it
My sister we are to reprove one another....
Luke 17:2- 4 - It would be better for him to have a millstone hung around his neck and to be thrown into the sea than to cause one of these little ones to stumble. 3.Watch yourselves. If your brother sins, rebuke him; and if he repents, forgive him. 4.Even if he sins against you seven times in a day, and seven times returns to say, ‘I repent,’ you must forgive him.”…
Definition of reprove
1 : to scold or correct usually gently or with kindly intent
2 : to express disapproval of......
If I see a sin, I make it known to the sinner as I expect others to do to me. This is how we stick together...through thick and thin we are family.... a spiritual family and I do NOT want to see any brother or sister heading to hell due to living in sin. If it takes a hug, a stern scolding, or tears I don't care as long as my brother or sister sees the error and returns back to the fold.
Revelation 3:19 - Those whom I love I rebuke and discipline. So be earnest, and repent.

I wonder when will they start calling the bible 'racist'...
The Bible calls out and supports quite a bit of ethnic cleansing in the name of God. Especially in the OT. I wouldn't call it racist, but your sarcasm isn't exactly far off enough to make your joke funny.
when dating a young girl "no" always means "no".
My point is not about sex but about what is sin and what is not sin changes over time.
Slaves, in reverent fear of God submit yourselves to your masters, not only to those who are good and considerate, but also to those who are harsh.

Evil is always where you least expect it.
Servants, be subject to your masters with all fear; not only to the good and gentle, but also to the froward. -- KJV, 1 Peter 2:18
Flee also youthful lusts: but follow righteousness, faith, charity, peace, with them that call on the Lord out of a pure heart. -- KJV, 2 Timothy 2:22
When I was a child, I spake as a child, I understood as a child, I thought as a child: but when I became a man, I put away childish things. -- KJV, 1 Corinthians 13:11
For now we see through a glass, darkly; but then face to face: now I know in part; but then shall I know even as also I am known. -- KJV, 1 Corinthians 13:12
And now abideth faith, hope, charity, these three; but the greatest of these is charity. -- KJV, 1 Corinthians 13:13

- lets kill all the other animals in the garden."
Submit yourselves for the Lord’s sake to every human authority: whether to the emperor, as the supreme authority, 14 or to governors, who are sent by him to punish those who do wrong and to commend those who do right. 15 For it is God’s will that by doing good you should silence the ignorant talk of foolish people. 16 Live as free people, but do not use your freedom as a cover-up for evil; live as God’s slaves. 17 Show proper respect to everyone, love the family of believers, fear God, honor the emperor.
18 Slaves, in reverent fear of God submit yourselves to your masters, not only to those who are good and considerate, but also to those who are harsh. 19 For it is commendable if someone bears up under the pain of unjust suffering because they are conscious of God. 20 But how is it to your credit if you receive a beating for doing wrong and endure it? But if you suffer for doing good and you endure it, this is commendable before God. 21 To this you were called, because Christ suffered for you, leaving you an example, that you should follow in his steps.
This has got to be the most evil and immoral verse in the Bible. How can the Bible be so wrong on slavery it were not written by men.

"I have a bees nest in the bottom of my garden that I put there but they are starting to annoy me. So in order to kill them I will use DDT which will also destroy every other living animal in my garden - save a handful. I could easily kill just the bees as I am all powerful but no - lets kill all the other animals in the garden."
My above description is a modern take on the Noah story which is pretty evil. And will carry with it a disregard for other living animals in the name of religion for thousands of years.
For the Western mind, perhaps the most disturbing fact about Islam is that its founder had a sexual relationship with a nine-year-old girl. Because of this, it has become increasingly popular in some circles to refer to the Prophet of Islam as a "pedophile." This is, of course, extremely offensive to Muslims, who view Muhammad as the ideal servant of God and as the greatest example of what a man should strive to be. Nevertheless, Muhammad’s relationship with a young girl presents a problem for Muslims, especially for those who want to share their faith with others.
Since much of the following information will come as a shock to those who are unfamiliar with this issue, we must be careful not to jump to hasty conclusions about Muhammad. Pedophilia is one of the most serious charges that can be leveled against a person, so the term "pedophile" should not be used lightly. We must also remember that, if a man has a sexual relationship with a young girl in a culture where such a union is permissible, this doesn’t necessarily mean that the man is a "sexual predator," as the term "pedophile" implies. Christians especially should be wary of flippant name-calling. With that said, let us carefully examine Muhammad’s relationship with Aisha, recalling the Western principle that a man is innocent until proven guilty.
1 Peter 2:18 Servants, be subject to your masters with all fear; not only to the good and gentle, but also to the froward.
1 Peter 2:19 For this is thankworthy, if a man for conscience toward God endure grief, suffering wrongfully. 1 Peter 2:20 For what glory is it, if, when ye be buffeted for your faults, ye shall take it patiently? but if, when ye do well, and suffer for it, ye take it patiently, this is acceptable with God.
