Monkey wrenching
Hmmm.... But they still get cut down. And the fact remains that people caring doesn't get votes so economics drives the law. And too often the law says the trees come down, usually flying in the face of studies supporting conservation. Why? Because there is no ABSOLUTE proof that our ecosystem is collapsing. That argument has always been good enough to allow the destruction of resources. That's why scientists are beginning to become more politically active. They know that they

Yea, right. And those "no other god" Jews believed IN that brass serpent too, right? Jesus however does tell us this: John 6:63 It is the spirit that quickeneth; the flesh profiteth nothing: the words that I speak unto you, they are spirit, and they are life. Matt 12:31,2 if Since Matt does not make the forgiveness conditional on repentance, you are adding your interpertation to what the bible actually says. As for why one is allowed and th If

generation. You have no basis to classify these things as sins. God had not yet prohibited them and the episode is merely a reason for explaining the future of Noah's sons tribes. God clearly identifies Noah as sinless: Gen 6:9 These are the generations of Noah: Noah was a just man and perfect in his generations, and Noah walked with God. Here's the defination of the Hebrew word for perfect: 08549 tamiym {taw-meem'} AV without blemish 44, perfect 18,

Thnkas. That gives us just enough time to switch to a fresh barf-bag in antic ipation of your further myth and superstition postings.

Good! You have the echo-religionoid trapped in his babblical errors. Sad whe n they can't even get their fairy-tales listed in the right chronological orde r! Always happens when there are too many players on stage all at once.

RE: STEVE'S PR FOR YOUR RELIGION
Funny how you won't find what you printed in quotes anywhere in the Bible. Just like you won't find a well preached christian thought: "God helps those w ho help themselves"

Grace
Steve, I am in a long-running study of Luke, and have been amazed to see how central Grace is to so many of the parables told in Luke, especially those that are unique to Luke, such as the Prodigal Son, in Luke 15:11-32, but also throughout these pericopes in Chapters 15 and 16. Yours in Christ, Jesse

Gospel Of John
My studies indicate that in many ways John's gospel in fact _responds to_ the synoptics, clarifying issues that had arisen since those gospels were circulated, especially as it related to the by-then growing trend to Gnosticism. I too think the author of John was aware of the synoptics.

God Strikes L.A.
While David certainly couldn't be listed among the "innocent bystanders," ther e certainly are enough children killed by buildings falling on them due to ear thquakes. I wonder how many kids got wiped out in India. So far, the believer in deities has yet to offer any valid justification on wh y their deities would wipe out 20,000 people. One wonders if what bubbles thr ough their little minds is the unspoken belief that it was because they're mos tly
