love and lust
often get confused.
love defined from bible:
1 Corinthians 13:4-8
New International Version (NIV)
4 Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. 5 It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. 6 Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. 7 It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres.
using love as a qualifier explain why murder and suicide rates for homosexual groups is so high.?
why is death from STI so high?
explain why multiple partners in one year is so high?
explain why one gay man intentionally gives another gay man AIDS by tearing the rubber?
explain how these fall under the definition of love.edit on 9-5-2013 by slugger9787 because: psuedoenlightenedone
That is all I have to say regarding this
thread. You might consider two things
for future negotiations:
1) take some time to study actual Psychology in depth, and explore how manipulation works. Particularly
early childhood development,
parenting, indoctrination, family
systems, and group dynamics.
Sociology. Anthropology. 2) stop calling people "ignorant"
because they disagree with you. I also wonder about your
comprehension skills and/or your
command of English.
Btw the mention of my comprehension and language tells a lot about you.
yes, but selfless service doing people are not enough. "for evil to take over its enough that good people do nothing" in a philosophical sense evil is just absence of good. It is very essential that a wrong is called as wrong and stopped by action or atleast words.
Going outside without SPF 25 does that.
the tribe knows it because each baby is born with it. Its the society that corrupts it an God is needed to restore it. The tribe may already have a belief of no god yet maintained their sense of right and wrong.

Only atheist can think that a criminal who did not value another life should be allowed to live as their is nothing after death and the one who died is already dead so lets not worry about the victim
yes its innate. A baby naturally shows shyness about his/her nakedness after a certain age
Do you think that christian leaders causing wars and genocides are doing it because they think God is love? Then its sick.
NO, naturist teach them to live that way. At birth the baby is unaware of self, when the awareness of body comes, then the shyness comes. It will go if trained otherwise.
You have repeatedly failed to retain information I've given you over and over again. Perhaps you don't pay attention to your correspondents as well as I do.
You have now become hostile,
insulting, and argumentative - which
tells a lot about you. I've seen you get that way with others, but to date
you haven't done that with me.
Many people who turn to "God" after
immoral behavior (it happens OFTEN in
jails and prisons or after near-death
catastrophies or overwhelming
remorse) would do better to get
therapy. A good therapist is every bit as capable (actually maybe more
capable) as a 'faith-based' counselor.
the damage done by zealous religious
teaching. I've helped people undo it,
including working with adult people
who's "fear" of God and hell has ruined their ability to live their lives
without constant and perpetual self-
loathing. It has BROKEN their natural
exuberance, their hearts, and their
spirits. How is that good? Answer: It is
your latest turn-
off into blaming Western culture for
the world's ills is unbalanced in favor
of religion, and is extreme, and I will
never agree to it.
From CNN Correspondent Garrick Utley NEW YORK (CNN) -- As scientists note
the arrival of the six billionth human
being on the planet, they also are
warning that 16 percent of the world's
population is consuming some 80
percent of its natural resources. That's the estimated toll the wealthiest
populations on the globe -- the United
States, Europe and Japan -- are taking
from the earth's natural bounty to
sustain their way of life. In the U.S. alone, says Emily Matthews
of the World Resources Institute, every
man, woman and child is responsible
for the consumption of about 25 tons
of raw materials each year. Americans, while making up only four
percent of the world's population,
operate one third of its automobiles.
U.S. citizens consume one quarter of
the world's global energy supply.
