    I read that verse one more time and what do you know--it still says (1) not to cut your bodies for the dead and (2) not to put tattoo marks on yourselves. I believe it is in your plan to put a tattoo mark on yourself, which is against the second part of the command. I apologize. Bible-twisters just piss me off so much that I can't help myself sometimes. <strike>I have Syphon's permission, by the way.</strike> I never had anyone's permission to turn this into a debate.

    Hohoho, oh YES. freetofly, isn't the Bible an instruction manual? One doesn't even need the Holy Spirit to interpret a straightforward sentence like that. Don't tell me you're one of those people who like to throw in all kinds of Bible verses that support their view on one issue (not God's, no) and conveniently ignore a verse that doesn't support their view on another issue. I believe that's called "picking-and-choosing," which is bad for the health of one arrogant enough to claim to be a true Christian. I hereby command you to reevaluate your unChristian approach in using the Bible, and thanks for playing. *buzz*

    Cactus, I hate to break this to you, but sometimes citing a Bible verse doesn't make your argument any more valid or substantial. In fact, I tend to like it better when I argue with someone who doesn't always resort to the Bible. If I've put up with a lot of Biblical-based arguments so far, it is because this is a Christian forum. You mean logic doesn't count?

    I Think It's Funny...

    I think it's funny that part of my profile was considered offensive. Or that anyone would actually take the time to look at it and edit it out.
  6. Yes, it's a great way to meet other Christians. It's also a great way to realize that a common religious belief shouldn't be the foundation of a friendship and that people are wired differently regardless of a shared belief in Jesus. I went to a Christian school most of my K-12 life, by the way, but my middle school left the most impression on me. It was an awesome place. We learned that that those who can pray the longest are the greatest Christians and that we should keep the new students friendless or else. Oh, and we also accepted Jesus and got saved every other week.
  7. Well, at least someone has a life. That's one out of, er, a lot. There goes my favorite emo-man.

    Advocate, if you want to put them side-by-side, at least make them the same size. I don't know if this would be considered inappropriate, but my first contribution to this thread: Sorry, but it wasn't. This was actually taken right in front of someone's house. And a very strong old lady: Hurray for no Internet connection!

    I must have missed their posts.

    Not to dwell on the off-topicness for too long, but I just think it's interesting that on many other websites I go to, conservative-bashing is usually the norm. And anyway, I haven't really seen any conservative on this forum who is threateningly knowledgeable about political issues, so liberals, I doubt you need to take politics that seriously around here.

    Not by blood. I personally dislike getting a tattoo to indicate possession. If I met someone who insisted that I get a tattoo of his name or else, I would assume that he has an immature view of relationships and leave it at that. Give me a break, we're not in high school anymore. If seeing your name on my body somehow makes you warm and fuzzy inside, then there's something wrong with you.
  12. ^ When something like that comes up, I always remember this little joke: I was walking across a bridge one day, and I saw a man standing on the edge, about to jump off. So I ran over and said, "Stop! Don't do it!" "Why shouldn't I?" he said. I said, "Well, there's so much to live for!" He said, "Like what?" I said, "Well, are you religious or atheist?" He said, "Religious." I said, "Me too! Are your Christian or Buddhist?" He said, "Christian." I said, "Me too! Are you Catholic or Protestant?" He said, "Protestant." I said, "Me too! Are your Episcopalian or Baptist?" He said, "Baptist!" I said, "Wow! Me too! Are your Baptist Church of God or Baptist Church of the Lord?" He said, "Baptist Church of God!" I said, "Me too! Are your Original Baptist Church of God or are you Reformed Baptist Church of God?" He said, "Reformed Baptist Church of God!" I said, "Me too! Are you Reformed Baptist Church of God, Reformation of 1879, or Reformed Baptist Church of God, Reformation of 1915?" He said, "Reformed Baptist Church of God, Reformation of 1915!" I said, "Die, heretic scum!" and pushed him off.

    This is off-topic, but Advocate, I'd like to see your avatar next to delta's.

    All right, here's my last contribution to this thread and then I'm out of here before a proper mod <strike>that is not Jman</strike> pops in and yells at us for turning this into a debate: Believe it or not, I'm mostly conservative. However, I've come to believe that in the recent years, "marriage" is nothing but a joke. Instead of people staying together until "death do [them] apart," people file for divorce for the pettiest reason. I also find it silly that people can be so determined about not having premarital sex and then easily resort to divorce within three years of their marriage. (Yes, I'm looking at you, Jessica Simpson!) What is the point of remaining pure for your (first) husband then? Shouldn't we put more emphasis on commitment rather than on purity? And teach kids to realize that their "true love" will not be a perfect human being, maybe? That they need to work on their marriage because marriage can't possibly survive on love alone? Or that there will be a time when they have to accept that their spouse is fat or has hair in weird places? And maybe it's because I'm not that good of a Christian and I don't know what the Bible says on this subject, but I don't see what the big deal is about marrying someone who's "impure." :dontgetit:
