Certainly Jeremy: You wrote this:

TC -- The word homosexual for instance wasn't in any Bible until 1955 or so and wasn't even a concept when it was written.
Me -- So, homosexuality didn't exist before 1955?
TC -- Prove me wrong.

Whereas TC wrote this: Prove me wrong. The word homosexual for instance wasn't in any Bible until 1955 or so and wasn't even a concept when it was written.

Hey just admit you misunderstood TC's post.

I myself, have misunderstood posts before, including one from Nancy a day or so ago.

And, when she pointed it out, I admitted I had misunderstood it.

It was my fault.

Hope this helps, regardless of the word "homosexuality" as thier are other words that reference this act, which I would not repeat. So, it's clear it's not the person, but the act that GOD dissaproves of.

(Romans 1:26, 27) . . .6 That is why God gave them up to disgraceful sexual appetites, for both their females changed the natural use of themselves into one contrary to nature; 27 and likewise even the males left the natural use of the female and became violently inflamed in their lust toward one another, males with males, working what is obscene and receiving in themselves the full recompense, which was due for their error.

(1 Timothy 1:10) 10 fornicators, men who lie with males, kidnappers, liars, false swearers, and whatever other thing is in opposition to the healthful teaching

(1 Corinthians 6:9) 9 What! Do YOU not know that unrighteous persons will not inherit God's kingdom? Do not be misled. Neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor men kept for unnatural purposes, nor men who lie with men,

Jeremy, you and I don't seem to agree or perhaps we're just working from a different screenplay, but I agree with you that it does sound as if homosexuality wasn't known when the Bible was written. It's obvious that there are references to some kind of sexual activity between men in a couple of places, but that may not necessarily mean homosexuality the way we think of it today.

TC -- I never said when it began, I said when it appeared in the Bible.

You said: The word homosexual for instance wasn't in any Bible until 1955 or so and wasn't even a concept when it was written.

The way that sentence reads; you were either claiming that homosexuality was not a concept when the Bible was written or that homosexuality didn't exist before the word "homosexual" was placed in the Bible.

To say the least.

However if someone is looking for a troll award......

The wonderful thing about lists like this when you deny your words they remain somewhere. And they love to bite you later.

Jeremy, I looked at how you edited what TC wrote.

The way you did it is IMO dishonest.

Just what does any of that have to do with the word appearing in a Bible?

PS The answer is NOTHING. Duh!

Well, Jeremy, what I told you earlier is exactly what I would say again. That's what I think a Christian nation would be.

Prove me wrong. The word was not in the Bible until 1955. Pretty much like the words "under God" appeared in our previosly non-Christian pledge of allegiance. Hopefully that will be removed some day soon.

ND -- What's going on.

I'm trying to avoid putting words in your mouth. I don't want to tell you what *I* think is YOUR definition of a "Christian nation". What I'm looking for (in terms of verbiage) is something along the lines of a standard dictionary definition. For example: "I think a 'Christian nation is _________________'. And fill in the blank.

Astrocat says:
And Jeremy, as I've said, I've already told you my definition of a Christian nation. Are we missing each other here? What's going on.

Dean says:
You're not telling it right. Quit being so PC.

A priest, a minister, and a rabbi are talking together. As they talk the three start talking about what they do with the donations.

The priest said he draws a line a throws the money into the air.

The money that goes on one side goes to him, and the money that goes on the other side goes to God.

The minister says he draws a circle around him and throws the money into the air.

The money that falls in the circle goes to him, and the money that goes out of the circle goes to God.

The rabbi said he just throws the money in the air, and God takes what He wants.

You're the one making the assertion. I figured you'd have some evidence to back up your claim.

Astrocat says:
Jeremy, the Golden Rule has been around a lot longer than Christianity. It's been one of the precepts of all systems of thinking and of right human relations for thousands of years.

You really do jump to conclusions. I never said it wasn't true, I said, or at the very least inferred, that for Christians who are literalists, anything the Bible says is automatically true, regardless of how contradictory it might be. I was arguing against mindless acceptance, not the precept itself.
