Now, Sunday School teachers have sometimes tried to teach what they think that stuff actually meant. The stoning one's child part, it's really good to get some Jewish input because they often can explain why the OT supposedly isn't as bad as it sounds.
No, Obama did NOT say that and I explained why in the past two posts. Some of you all are just wanting to use something, ANYTHING to make a Democratic politician out as not being a Christian. To be brutally honest, some Republicans (not all or hopefully even most of them) are coming off to me as the Pharasees as portrayed in the New Testament. Now, some Jews say they got a bum rap, but that's not the point. The point is the Pharasees are people who according to the NT think they're the only ones going to be with God. They want everybody else snubbed. They're very elitist. They make it clear that they want nobody else to be a part of their club. They're mad at Jesus for daring to include others and occasionally call them hypocrtes. I don't believe this represents most Republican Christians, but I honestly think it represents some of them (mostly the most vocal politicians and the so called religious right).
Back On Topic (BOT), Please!
Texas has more than 13.2 million registered voters - so over 3,000,000 are that ignorant?
Oddly enough, if I want to understand the theology of Christianity, I'm not going to look to my president to explain it to me. But that may just be me.
