Personally, I think incest is repulsive. You aren't supposed to be intimate in those ways with family members. However, I think it's only considered incest up to a certain point in family ties. Either way, I won't be marrying my cousin, or any other relative.
As far as the topic of the Bible (and subsequently, religion) goes, I won't touch on that topic. It's highly controversial, and everyone has their own thoughts, views, opinions, etc. Which we are all entitled to, but it tends to spark wars, which can easily be avoided if we all just agree to disagree, believe what we choose, and let others do the same. We all have free will, we all have our own minds, and we all make our own decisions how we see fit.


Oh that's all well and good, if it works.  However, Christians are targeted on here all the time (see Debate and Discuss).  Some Christians won't go in there anymore because of being flamed, called names, and cussed at.  Only because we claim we are Christians.  We are accused of being intolerant, when actually it's the other way around.  

When I'm answering a person's Biblical question to help them out (read this thread), and then get flaming and derogatory remarks about Christians/Christianity/God/Bible from those who just want to start trouble, then it's time to say something.  I didn't start this, but I'll finish it.  I'll stand up for the Lord and my Faith anytime and anywhere. If they think they can shut me up?  lol

Besides, qon, cuppycake, and a few others never disappoint to provide such great study topics for my Bible Study group at church.


You seem to be forgetting that Christians are NOT the only ones targeted. Everyone is a target, as we are all different and have varying thoughts/views/beliefs/opinions etc. Maybe here, on FC, Christians seem to be targeted but Christians in turn do their fair share of the targeting. Which you have done simply by quoting my post and starting your response with "Oh that's all well and good, if it works." And who are you to pick me out and direct your comments towards when I said nothing to offend Christians, or any other faith. Did I call you names? No. Did I verbally bash Christianity? No. Did I talk down on any one? No. Did I bad mouth any one's religion? No. And No, I didn't do anything to 'start trouble'. So before you go around speaking of people 'targeting' you for being a Christian, check your own actions and be sure that you are not a hypocrite in the fact that you are doing just as you claim to be a victim of... Targeting people who are not as you.
And lastly, I never claimed to not be a Christian and I never claimed to be a Christian.
And by the way (this is for any and all, not just you) Any one can claim to be a Christian. But going to church and acting Godly on Sundays (and for some, Wednesdays as well) doesn't make you a Christian any more than quacking makes you a duck.
Take this for what you will, as I can only imagine how wrong you will receive my comments. Have a nice day. (:

For one thing shadetree, you are wrong.  I was not targeting you for anything.  It was just an explanation (for whomever is reading this thread), and was not meant to single you (or your post) out for anything.  If you took it as a personal affront, then I'm sorry.  It was not meant to be.  I live my Christianity every second of my life. Sundays and Weds., are just another day to me, except it's a day to "gather" with others of like precious faith as a family.

Accept my apology as nothing was aimed at you personal or otherwise.  However, you do not have many posts and that tells me that you must be fairly new, or you don't frequent the forum often.  cuppycake and qon (among others) are notorious for singling out Christians and flaming them on this forum.  Please take my suggestion and go read all of our posts in "Debate and Discuss".....unless they have deleted their posts.



And that's where you would be incorrect. You did target me, (whether intentionally or not) as my post didn't need any further comments or explanations. Nor did it pertain to your previous experiences with others on the forum, in the past. It was plain and simple, just a read (or don't read) and move on, which you did not. That was all I meant by that.
And what difference does it make how many posts I have? It doesn't.
As far as Queenofnines and Cuppycake goes, I've not any issues with them. They state their opinions, just as you or I do. Which, we all have a right to do. If you don't like what they say, then ignore them. By acknowledging them, you only encourage them and thus bring the "hate" upon yourself.
You should exercise more caution in your words, your anger is showing (and I'm not referring to our comments to each other). Which, there is no need for.
Also, I've no desire to read what they have posted in the past, as it's in the past and has no effect on me. Again, it's their opinions, which I respect as I do yours. If you cannot do the same, then I fear you may be slipping. Are you not, as a Christian, taught to tolerate those whose views differ from your own? So you disagree with them, fine. Let it be and instead turn your focus & attention to those whom you have positive interactions with.
Why must you continually bring up the past? Move on, let it go, and don't let it bother you because otherwise, you only give them the satisfaction of getting under your skin. Which only brings a darkness upon you.
Lastly, I accept your apology, and I in turn hope that you don't take any of this the wrong way as it's not meant to offend or attack you in any way. Have a great day Annella. Be well, take care, and exercise caution. (:


As far as relating to your posts, I was only pointing out that you were new, and not familiar with a lot that has been going on around this forum.  I see that you don't care, only to attack me.  As far as anger, it comes through very much in some of the posts you have made to me when all I was doing was trying to help.  However, the Bible says you can be angry and sin not.  If your angry with me, I'm sorry because no anger was directed at you. There's nothing wrong with righteous anger as long as you do not sin.  Everything I wrote, I'll stand behind because it's Truth and Bible.  I have no odds against my Faith, nor do I question the validity of God's Word.  I do not respect any opinion that is blasphemy and liable against God.

Your wrong.  I'm to be tolerant of those who know no better and are ignorant of the Gospel.  Not those who know exactly what they are doing when they blaspheme the Lord on purpose. There comes a time when you stand up and make others aware that you are not ashamed of the Gospel of Christ.  Reproof and rebuke is given to the Ministry (Bible).  

However, I can see that you are offended so I will steer clear of any other comments you may make that are/or not questions in the future.

sswillams2008, I'm doing some study, and coming up with some answers pertaining to your questions.  If you would like to hear them, let me know.

Some of what I know and/or found out:

People lived for hundreds of years back then.  Noah was 600 years old when the flood happened.  Noah only had the 3 sons, Shem, Ham, Japheth.  He had no more children.

The whole earth was populated by the 3 sons and their wives.  We're talking hundreds of years of kids. The generations are in Chapter 10 of Genesis and how they were divided in the whole earth.

Marrying cousins was an acceptable practice back then to preserve the blood lines within the race.  In Leviticus (18th Chapter), the "Law" given to Moses on Mount Carmel did not mention anything negative about marrying cousins (which I found particularly interesting because I'd never seen that before).

Hope I've helped you a little.

There is a ton more incest in the bible than just that.

It's also addressed as SIN.  Just like fornication, adultery, having sex with animals, homosexuality, etc.....what is the point your trying to make?  The Bible just about names every sin known to man.  It's spelled out so that there is no question what is displeasing to God.  It's like reading the answers to a very important test before you take it.

We as Christians are not liars or making excuses.  We've been called just about everything in the book on this forum, and enough is enough.  The Bible names the sins of man, and the punishment for those sins.  After all, that's what we ALL are going to be judged by......if you believe in the Bible......and I most assuredly do!!!

I believe I owe JessieKateRose an apology for my answer above to her.  It should have been worded better.  I'm afraid my response to qon's retort how everything about the Bible and Christians were lies....spilled over into the response to JessieKateRose.  I went back and read through the whole thread.  I'm very sorry JessieKateRose for responding like I did.  You were just making a point.

You are right.  There are many cases of Incest in the Bible.  I think things are recorded for us to make sure we know the negative influences such sins had.

I get that, but it's irrelevant. I don't care about what has been said in the past, as it had absolutely nothing to do with me. And you once again are incorrect, I am not attacking you. Although, if that is what you are after then I could always do just that.
Yet again, you are incorrect. I haven't any anger whatsoever in any of my posts, that's just how you are reading in your mind. And that's your problem, not mine.
I didn't need any help and I didn't ask for any help. You just jumped in assuming that I did. Look before you leap.
I'm not angry with you, for anything. Like I said already, there's no anger here. When I was referring to anger in your posts, I was talking about posts you had made towards others. I read your comments towards me and saw no anger in them. Clearly, there's been a misunderstanding.
That's your decision. However, I don't think God would be all to pleased with your lack of respect, regardless. But I digress.
Again, trying to tell me that I am wrong, when in actuality, I am not.
On purpose or not, you, as commanded by Him, are to Love Thy Neighbor. There is so "except for if they do this, or say that". And did it ever occur to you, that perhaps those who do so may in actuality be "ingnorant to the gospel"? Because, if you think about it, they may not do so otherwise. You claim to love the lost, yet you look down on those who don't share your views or say things you don't agree with, and on those who say things that you have referenced to before (Cuppycake, Queenofnines, etc.). The very ones who just may be/are the lost and/or ignorant. A touch hypocritical of you.
"There comes a time when you stand up and make others aware that you are not ashamed of the Gospel of Christ." There shouldn't be a 'time', as you should, from the beginning, be unafraid. And based upon your sentence, at some point it shows that you were ashamed. How do you suppose that made God feel, that you were ashamed of your faith in Him?
You speak with a closed mind and a closed heart, all the while pretending to be otherwise. Maybe you need to re-evaluate yourself. And while you're at it, open your eyes. Nothing you have said offended me, and there's nothing you can say that will offend me. And do you know why? Of course you don't, so I'll be so kind as to inform you... I do not allow you to have any power over me in that manner. I take no emotion towards your words, and if I may suggest.. You should try that as well. That way, maybe people such as Cuppycake and Queenofnines' words won't bother you and you can just walk away from their comments, completely unaffected, without looking back or giving them a second thought.
Good day, Annella.

I wasn't trying to judge Christians or call them names, I was just pointing out that they just mentioned the one bible story about incest and there are a lot. You don't have to flip out. You guys flipping out is why some of the people do come in here and attack Christians, to get a reaction. You guys should learn to just chill out.

This is a topic of interest because,  anything dealing with religion brings  debate, conflict etc. Even if your intentions were good and not to offend anyone.

11?  That's a shame you have to actually count the posts someone does in a certain time period.  It just shows she took the time to answer and address an issue that is important to her.  It shouldn't matter to anyone whether she posted once, 11, or 111 times.  Obviously, some of the "better things to do" were put off for a little bit to handle the matter at hand.

Now, I haven't read through this whole thread, bc well it looked like it was a little de-railed or off track..

but I can't believe that everything in the bible is true. It was written by man - man is not perfect.
and it was re-written by man many times - once again, man is not perfect.
I'm not saying that there isn't some truth to it bc I wasn't alive back then, there could be some truth to the history in it. But we as humans are not perfect. We're corrupt and twisted and I can not for the life of me believe that a man or many men that wrote this book didn't corrupt it and twist it to fit what they wanted. And I believe what they wanted was to manipulate the masses to control them.

I don't think incest is right. Its disgusting and wrong in my book. lol  :P  but I also don't believe we're all brothers and sisters in that kind of sense (if the bible is all true.)
That which can be asserted without evidence, can be dismissed without evidence.

You can't reason someone out of a position they didn't reason themselves into in the first place.

Um...it was pretty obvious that she pulled a marieelissa.  Counting was not necessary; it was an amused afterthought, especially when I saw the bulk of the posts were made into the wee hours.  That's not "addressing an issue", that's ranting and trying to prove herself right.  Even though she's not.  lol

I would love more of the research you have done! It would help me well to learn more about my faith and where it has come from. Thank you for taking the time to help me understand this! Your friend in Christ!  :angel11:

There's not much more that can be presented on the subject of incest that already has been.  However, you may have some specific questions about details that we can find the answers together.  Like I said in the previous post......I had no idea that the "Law" given to Moses did not say anything negative about marrying cousins.  It went into great detail about who we should not marry, but cousins were not included.  I never saw that before. However, I need to study it out a bit more.  Sometimes it's just the times in which people lived.  Like today, it's frowned upon to marry your cousin because society has deemed it taboo.

Your welcome to ask me anything, on any subject, anytime.  The Word will make you strong and grounded in your Faith.  Nobody can take that from you as God will reveal things in such a way that there is no question of validity.  Your on the right track.

I get that, but it's irrelevant. I don't care about what has been said in the past, as it had absolutely nothing to do with me. And you once again are incorrect, I am not attacking you. Although, if that is what you are after then I could always do just that.
Yet again, you are incorrect. I haven't any anger whatsoever in any of my posts, that's just how you are reading in your mind. And that's your problem, not mine.
I didn't need any help and I didn't ask for any help. You just jumped in assuming that I did. Look before you leap.
I'm not angry with you, for anything. Like I said already, there's no anger here. When I was referring to anger in your posts, I was talking about posts you had made towards others. I read your comments towards me and saw no anger in them. Clearly, there's been a misunderstanding.
That's your decision. However, I don't think God would be all to pleased with your lack of respect, regardless. But I digress.
Again, trying to tell me that I am wrong, when in actuality, I am not.
On purpose or not, you, as commanded by Him, are to Love Thy Neighbor. There is so "except for if they do this, or say that". And did it ever occur to you, that perhaps those who do so may in actuality be "ingnorant to the gospel"? Because, if you think about it, they may not do so otherwise. You claim to love the lost, yet you look down on those who don't share your views or say things you don't agree with, and on those who say things that you have referenced to before (Cuppycake, Queenofnines, etc.). The very ones who just may be/are the lost and/or ignorant. A touch hypocritical of you.
"There comes a time when you stand up and make others aware that you are not ashamed of the Gospel of Christ." There shouldn't be a 'time', as you should, from the beginning, be unafraid. And based upon your sentence, at some point it shows that you were ashamed. How do you suppose that made God feel, that you were ashamed of your faith in Him?
You speak with a closed mind and a closed heart, all the while pretending to be otherwise. Maybe you need to re-evaluate yourself. And while you're at it, open your eyes. Nothing you have said offended me, and there's nothing you can say that will offend me. And do you know why? Of course you don't, so I'll be so kind as to inform you... I do not allow you to have any power over me in that manner. I take no emotion towards your words, and if I may suggest.. You should try that as well. That way, maybe people such as Cuppycake and Queenofnines' words won't bother you and you can just walk away from their comments, completely unaffected, without looking back or giving them a second thought.


You just called me a hypocrite, I'm pretending, I'm ashamed of God and my Faith, I have a closed mind and heart, and have no respect.  Wow! :o  In your words that's not attacking?  LOL

Actually no, I did not call you a hypocrite. I stated that you were behaving hypocritically.
I said in previous posts that I wasn't attacking and in my prior posts I was not attacking.
You provoked and I answered, but not with malevolent intent so, essentially I was not attacking. Merely making statements. If you choose to view it as an attack, then by all means, you go right ahead.
Play with fire Annella, and you will wind up getting burned. So maybe you should check your superiority complex at the door, and realize that you are no better than the rest of us. Your choice of faith doesn't make you better, we were All Created Equal.
Btw, what happened to "I will steer clear of any other comments you may make that are/or not questions in the future." By responding to my post, you've now made yourself out to be a liar. Hmm.... now I wonder how God feels about liars/lying...
