Paints also....what do you mean if God can deal with it?HE even listened to Abraham when Abraham asked HIM if he wold sweep away the righteous with the wicked Re Sodom.Patience and long suffering is Jehovah.But will not hold back discipline forever.

So if 1 reminds someone of Gods laws and they mean well why does that bug you?God can see the heart of us all.Jobs 3 so called friends made it look like they were sooth-saying him....when they werent!Let God be the judge of who a friend really is.



Do you honestly believe that people don't know right from wrong? 
And do you honestly believe that it is pleasing to God for us to go around butting in to other peoples' lives, pointing fingers and saying, "ooooh, you're doing it wrong?"

And do you honestly think they "mean well" by doing so?  Please.



Well i believe thats why God gave us a conscience...to determine right from wrong.

Listen i understand exactly what you are saying,but you make it sound like its everyone!I am in no position to judge if someone here gives a law from God and means others well by it.

I know who you speak of.I showed them a scripture about Judas not being resurrected what Jesus said.It didnt do any good because they had no answer after that.To me i wondered if them being right was more important?I dont care.The bible speaks for itself and then understand and discernment comes in.Jesus proved he was Gods son beyond a doubt.And yet they still questioned and killed him to the end.So let God judge how someone uses HIS laws if they are doing it to glorify HIM or themselves.

Hitch, I wasn't intending to single anyone out.  I know it's not everyone, but it bumfuzzles me as to why people are so quick to find fault with another.
We are all in this together, so why not encourage and support each other rather than tearing someone down?

The way I look at it is if you can't help, at least don't hinder.

And nowhere did I nor the image say that God commanded anyone to rape.
Now who is muddying the waters?

What choice did the woman have, other than marrying her rapist?
If women were second class citizens, whose choice would be prostitution or life as an old maid after being raped, did she really have a choice?

Concerning the "spoils of war" passages, if you've killed all the men and women and only kept the virgin girls alive, intentionally, does she really have a choice? 

Does God truly value women so little? Or does it seem so because of the doctrines and traditions of men?




Unfortunately it is the times that dictated some of these "questionable" practices. I didn't go into all of the above cases, but it's the same thing as polygamy and the wife of a dead man marrying his brother. Women were  not afforded many options in those days, but they still needed to be provided for.

 But in some cases neither were the men. For example God allowed some forms of slavery because without it, many who were poor and destitute would've died. There was no welfare state in those days. No Food Stamps to help you put food on the table. No Fusion Cash to help keep a roof over your head. If God didn't allow some of these things in those days, there would've been more suffering among the innocent that couldn't provide for themselves than there already was.

Do you know why there is a need for Food Stamps today? 

Because the church is more interested in building mega churches and following the almighty dollar than Almighty God.

The cost of food stamps is less than 1 percent of the federal budget.  The cost of the military is 57 percent, and that's just the part they tell us about. 

I don't begrudge any of my taxes going to feed anyone who needs food, or clothing or shelter.  Male or female.

I do mind it going to build planes that go from assembly line directly to the bone yard.

Back to the original point.  Biblical Marriage.  One man - one woman.  Many valid points made in the previous posts and the one I couldn't agree with more....the context surrounding each stray from intended marriage is crucial for anyone to understand.  Taking one piece of scripture and creating an opinion is narrow minded.  Read, study, devour the message to learn, understand and define beliefs. The Bible is Gods word brought to us through men.  Through visions, dreams, thoughts, contact etc.  The Bible has 40 writers but only one author.

Actually, the original post was about criticizing people who don't fit what we believe is God's intent. 

God deals with people where they are.  Maybe we could try that, instead of criticism.

Paints,at first when you started this topic i have to admit i wasnt sure i understood what you meant.I am pretty sure now i do and i apologize if i went off-track.This stuff happens all the time anyways...LOL!

There are many examples in the bible where Gods chosen people were ungrateful for what HE did for them.We live in a tough world and more than once i have referred to the scripture "whole world lies in power of evil one"...which only magnifys the woes more in the world.But the bible gives a hope that soon that will end.

Again maybe its the way someone may present themselves when they want to help when using Gods word or just their gut feeling that shows if they mean well or not.Again good examples are the 3 so called friends of Job when he was suffering.

Quickly you bring up religeon.Do you think God almighty is going to let Christendom claim to teach HIS word and they dont and get away with it?Revelation refers them as Babylon the great and what happenes to her.We know Babylon was a country and world power where false religeon started with Nimrod.Babylon doesnt exist anymore today as a country so in Revelation its symbolic to false religeon today.She will be uncovered and devoured soon!

Hitch, if you didn't go off-track, I'd think you were sickening or something! :D

Actually, no apologies needed.  You helped me clarify what I was trying to say, and get my point across.

    Interesting! Thank you for posting this "Marriage (comparison) Chart". Evidently, people have difference of opinions of what
"a marriage should be".

As Jesus pointed out, it was not Adam but God who said, “That is why a man will leave his father and his mother and he must stick to his wife and they must become one flesh.” The wording of this text makes it evident that monogamy was the original standard for marriage in the eyes of Jehovah God.—Mt 19:4-6; Ge 2:24.

Cant be any clearer yet because we are all sinners we do err and some prefer it mans way!!

Based on this display I noticed that every marriage is between male and female. There is no display between two men or two women. You exactly right, according to God  a marriage is between a man and a woman.
