  1. Doesn't the bible also say only 144,000 xtians will be saved and all of them are men, so there will be no women in heaven? Christians will interpret the 144,000 however they like. We know the biblical writers often disagreed with each other. Maybe John, the writer of Revelation, who thought he was living in the end time, thought only Jews would be saved, 12,000 from each tribe of Israel. It's possible he didn't share Paul's passion for converting Gentiles. And like you say, all 144,000 are men as none were "defiled by women." Could it be John was a misogynist along with being anti-gentile?
  2. More about God's perfect person. Upon reading more of Leviticus, I know that God's favorite people were Levite priests who worked in the temple. The Israelites were to "consider them holy." (Lev. 21:8) They even had special rights. (Lev. 25:32-34) And the best person was the high priest. He was so special he could only marry virgins, and he didn't ever have to go near a dead person. The book of Leviticus was written by priests, obviously, and they sure did set themselves up a good life. I wonder if they weren't considered upper-class. One thing's for darn sure, the people who wrote Leviticus were quite anal, just read it for yourself and you'll see what I mean.
  3. Is this what you're thinking? Leviticus 21:16-23 (New International Version) 16 The LORD said to Moses, 17 "Say to Aaron: 'For the generations to come none of your descendants who has a defect may come near to offer the food of his God. 18 No man who has any defect may come near: no man who is blind or lame, disfigured or deformed; 19 no man with a crippled foot or hand, 20 or who is hunchbacked or dwarfed, or who has any eye defect, or who has festering or running sores or damaged testicles. 21 No descendant of Aaron the priest who has any defect is to come near to present the offerings made to the LORD by fire. He has a defect; he must not come near to offer the food of his God. 22 He may eat the most holy food of his God, as well as the holy food; 23 yet because of his defect, he must not go near the curtain or approach the altar, and so desecrate my sanctuary. I am the LORD, who makes them holy. ' Yes, Buffettphan, that is the passage I was thinking about. So let me get this straight. God's perfect person is male, hebrew, and without any handicaps. All these qualities are beyond anyone's control so it doesn't make sense why a perfect, loving god would hold them against people.
  4. Michael Gartner sounds like an idiot. Make guns unconstitutional for the civilian population and only the criminals will have the guns because there will be a huge black market for them. And who'd want to invade a country where the civilian population had guns?
  5. People were really starting the question the Grego-Roman gods who were quite petty. Jesus offered them an appealing alternative with eternal life in paradise. And religious people often are willing to die for their beliefs, even today. Just consider Jim Jones, and the Heaven's Gate cult.
  6. Yes, they can spindoctor like no one's business. I also recall that God had a dislike for disabled people, wouldn't let them in the temple. Anyone know the verses? And something about crushed testicles. But then in the N.T. it was OK to cut them off. Go figure!
  7. Romans 2:11 (NIV) For God does not show favoritism. I'm planning on making this verse the topic of my next YouTube video. When I was a Christian, I had a very hard time believing this verse. Of course God plays favorites! He has a "chosen people." God in the O.T. has no love for gentiles. In Leviticus 25 God expresses their value as slave labor. How often did God sanction their murder? And God obviously liked men better than women as he gave men more rights and power over women. I'm sure there are other examples of God playing favorites.
  8. Most of the YouTube videos I make disprove the Bible. My latest is on Ananias and Sapphira. They're the couple that held money back for themselves when donating to the early church, and for that God struck them dead. Lovely story. Ananias and Sapphira
  9. Thanks! I might do another video on the subject. Veiled Glory, the lady trying to promote hijab and head to toe clothing for Christian women, made a video: Women Formerly known as Sexy In it she knocks makeup, manicures, and people who wear Old Navy clothes. I believe she referred to us as "androgynous Old Navy drones." I'll call my video, "So What's Wrong with Sexy?" After all, it's how we attract a mate. And I'm thinking about doing another one about religions that "shame our sexuality." I'm going to need more insight on this subject so I will need to get more opinions.
  10. Why do some religions "shame our sexuality?" I'm sure it's about control. We women were always suppose to worry that we might cause a man to lust after us. Like they wouldn't anyway. One culture is so concerned about it that their women have to dress like blue ghosts. How ridiculous! Anyway, there's this woman on YouTube who is trying to promote the modesty movement among Christian women and get them to wear hijabs. I made a video response to it: Female Modest Dress
  11. You're welcome. That guy has a whole bunch of great videos.
  12. Personally, I think everyone tries to legislate their morality. And if they are Christians, whether they say so or not, they think they are doing God's will. Someone said Obama had to suck up to the Christians. Did he also have to attend Rev. Wright's church for fifteen years? There are things on both sides of the aisle I disagree with. In the end when I go to the voting booth, religion is hardy a consideration because no matter who becomes president, atheism will continue to grow here in America.
  13. I think many people want to believe there is a hell because they can't imagine mass murderers having the same fate a good people. Anyway, your husband should learn about the true history of hell. This video might help:
  14. Religion isn't just on the right. Penn Says: Sam Harris Obama invokes Jesus Democrats and Faith Does anyone else see a double standard?
  15. Tiller was singled out by O'Reilly because he practiced late term abortions. Many, if not most, people are against the killing of a fetus so they speak out against it. O'Reilly never called for Tiller to be murdered. Some nut job did that on his own. Should those who oppose late term abortions be silenced because of what some crazy guy might do?
