Then I'm pretty glad god doesn't exist, because that is incredibly stupid. I find the "grace" thing to be a pitiful excuse for all the BS in the bible.
Why would you find that to be stupid?

Maybe he's referring to the fact that two sins like "adultery" and "homicide" would be weighed equally... When they clearly do not cause the same amount of damage.

Exactly. They are weighed the same. The bible makes it clear in Romans 3 that the penalty for sin is death....period. Revelation explains that it is a spiritual death. God does not care if you murder or lie because the penalty is the same. Which is where the whole "grace" thing comes into play.

Would you punish a child the same way no matter what the offense was? Weighing all "sin" the same is not just. It's good that this is all made up because it would be a horrible system to actually live under.

Yes. Why would being homosexual, which hurts nobody, and killing someone, which obviously does, have the same punishment? That seems like a strange kind of justice.

Ergo, it's not justice. It's just sadistic punishment.

Again...If both books are indistinct when it comes to cherry-picking good and bad verses, why are the Old and New Testaments "authoritative", but the Koran is not a "Third Testament"?

It was just a fucking apple man, we're sorry okay? Please stop the madness Laugh out load

10 year old to another: "your mom is so fat, when she sits around the house, she sits AROUND the house!"

And it's equal to raping the body of the child a pedophile just murdered!

Yay Justice! Infinite time for finite crime! I love me some Gawd!

Yabut, other than your pastor or priest telling you that, a Billion other people say it's "The Book."
