What about the little ones who don't believe in him? Is it alright to kill kids from non-Christian households?

I believe the KJV.

You can take whatever modern new age version of God's scripture to twist it, to a different meaning and this is a symptom of what's wrong with society.

And in other threads where I posted scripture you said 'err looks like poetry to me' meaning you don't accept the KJV there's no point in dialoging about this subject with you any furthur.

An inaccurate translation.

The fact that you believe the KJV and then go on to talk about scripture twisting is heavily, heavily ironic and sad.

I could easily make the argument that your belief system is "what's wrong with society."

What would you interpret "mill stone and cast into the sea and drown" to mean exactly?


Please do not tell me that you interpret this as poetry as you've done in the past with other verses, for if you do this justifies leaving you on permenant ignore status.

and if the Bible had anything to do with the appropriateness of punishments in what is supposed to be a secular legal system, then this will matter.

no Bible quotes, please. i'm so sick of it being used as some sort of trump card, or even this feigning that it's remotely relevant to what we're talking about.

i don't give a shit what Jesus would or would have wanted. Jesus isn't sentencing people to various punishments based on their crimes. Jesus has nothing to do with this one way or another.

let's talk about the Constitution or something that, you know, has something to do with the situation at hand.

no one gets punished for violating any rules in the Bible. they get punished for vilating the rule of law as spelled out in the US Constitution and various state constitutions. sure, there's overlap, but the Bible means crap to the justice system.

so let's drop the bible, please.

Vengence is up to God.

And where he is going to land thru out eternity will be up to God and what God's vengence is, God has all knowledge of our entire lives, our circumstance and situations. What degree of Hell this person suffers in, only God knows.

Our duty as a society is respect the rule of law, not be gleeful about an execution and send him to his Maker and let God decide what he is going to do with him.

Fine, and that's what happen today.

A poster(s) injected the Savior into the discussion and I have no qualms nor discomfort quoting what Christ said about certain moral crimes, which happen to be violation of certain US laws for some strange reason.

Why most US Laws correlate with a lot of Christian principles well, you can do the math, whether it makes you uncomfortable or not.

We're debating US laws....

If you don't address my other posts, I'm assuming you concede those arguments.

Wow, just wow...

Even the KJV interpretation doesn't follow your leaps of logic.

"offends" doesn't = kill

nor does

"better for him" = this is what you should do

^and this is just a self righteous, judgemental insult to the millions of Christians who don't happen to read the KJV interpretation. But honestly I expect nothing less from you.

He has probably set you on ignore again. You are certainly too challenging.
