Jesus was willing to atone for us so God could provide for us lots of opportunities to grow.

This does not address why there was need for substitute atonement in the first place. Why did god have to send us jesus so we could kill him, so he could finally be able to forgive people for largely victimless crimes? This, with the caveat that this only happens if you love him or else you are grilled for eternity. You and I can forgive with no conditions and if the god of the bible is correct, I can do something it can't. I do not require blood to forgive.

god is stupid he makes rules and laws that he himself cannot keep and he expects us atheist to believe that he can break his own laws because he's god. I can't believe how blinded christians are. So only people from the old testament were allowed to marry their first cousins and have as many wives as they wanted but christian can only have one wife because more than one is adultery. This is all bullshit. Back then they got away with all the killing, raping, stealing, etc...

It isn't fair to only pick on christians. There are other religions that fit your description. And unless I am mistaken, the people from Mississippiland can also marry their cousins.

Of course, and not boiling a baby goat in it's mothers milk is the perfect way for us to achieve this potential. Facepalm

Don't want to waste that delicious baby goat meat...and if you're still in Oklahoma, there's a Mexican food chain called El Tapatio that uses goat milk to the queso...shit is amazing.

so, what does it mean TO YOU, GirlyMan, not to be a dick?

The Dude abides by the gold, silver and platinum rules. No religion or faith required.

abide by "the ruleS"? Do I see word "ruleS" in plural?
Looks like "don't be a dick" is NOT just ONE thing to do. Smile

P.S. what are those rules? I want to know better what it means to you.

RE: 264 Commandments
Is it always easy thing "not to be a dick"?

Is it always easy not to be a dick to ALL people.

Or are those rules applied only for a few lucky ones?

It's easier if you're not a dick.

There are laws for those who are Gods and there are laws for those who are mortals(not Gods yet).
Why? Because there is the difference between Gods and mortals (Gods to be).
Gods ALWAYS obey those laws, mortals not so much. We fail most of the time.

Not true. God RESTORED plural marriage. LDS Christians had this practice but we had to stop because it is illegal in the USA.
It is not healthy any more to marry siblings or cousins. God will not give a law that is NOT good for us.

No, they didn't.

I agree. But if you are a dick then it is much harder.
