Which? Infecting or punishment?

Sorry, obviously didn't make myself clear.
I was referring to the comments of the hypocrite re his idea of suitable punishment.
Knowingly spreading disease is wrong, of course, but things weren't as clear-cut in the 80s with regard to how HIV was spread as they are now.
Gods know it was a bad time, but comments like that don't help anyone.

I am a Christian but admit to having some sympathy toward Islam and its laws whereby the punishment fits the crime. That is, surprising to some no doubt, Biblical thinking.

I get furious when interfering governments such as Australia's, ideologically opposed to the death penalty { and so concerned with the human rights of the scum that commit crimes that they basically forget the victims and their suffering in the process },
stick their noses into the sovereign affairs of nations such as Malaysia which makes no bones about hanging the excrement that runs drugs and profits on other's misery.

If an Australian is on their death row these arrogant nuisances start jumping up and down and demanding to know by what right that nation can hang an Australian. Who do these b....... people think they are?

The concept of capital punishment, which I fully endorse where appropriate, such as murder, rape , drug running, is often supported by those with Biblical thinking and reverence for God and opposed to those who either have no belief in a deity { thus making man God } or actively adhering to Lucifer, the arch rebel against God.

I say hate the evil one and if a man stands with Him, hate him also. Jesus did say that he who is not with Him is against Him. It's that plain and that simple.

Queensland repealed the death penalty in 1922 - it's re-instatement is nearly a century overdue.

Well, quoting Matthew 5:28 didn't actually back up the (very odious) point you were making. You should have included some of the verses that followed it. It wouldn't have taken much to look that up. So yes, your scripture quoting fell somewhat short of the mark.

E. Maddison says:
A bit more from Matthew that counteracts that guy's ranting-
29And if thy right eye offend thee, pluck it out, and cast it from thee: for it is profitable for thee that one of thy members should perish, and not that thy whole body should be cast into hell.

30And if thy right hand offend thee, cut it off, and cast it from thee: for it is profitable for thee that one of thy members should perish, and not that thy whole body should be cast into hell.

38Ye have heard that it hath been said, An eye for an eye, and a tooth for a tooth:

39But I say unto you, That ye resist not evil: but whosoever shall smite thee on thy right cheek, turn to him the other also.

So you stick to the bits you like when it suits you, and ignore the bits you don't like- even when they're the words of Jesus himself.
Hypocrite.

I have no problem with people using quotes to support a position, but next time you may want to choose a quote that actually does support what you're saying.

And just because you brought it up, I'm not a Christian. I intend never to be a Christian. I think that Christianity, along with other religions, is a load of delusional, supetstitious nonsense that I think it's long past time that humanity grew out of. So it doesn't really matter to me whether one bunch of self-identified Christians think that you're not a true Christian because you haven't performed their meaningless ritual. Just sayin'...

"It is physically impossible for a healthy heterosexual male to look upon a beautiful woman and not think sexual thoughts."
Balls. Pure and utter balls. unless you pre-define it such that beautiful means only "engenders sexual thoughts in the beholder"

"Don't you dare tell me I have no credibility as a Christian or to quote Scripture. In the end we will ALL answer to Christ, you included "
Wow, getting frustrated and leaps to the threats. Wonderful charity you show.

If i promise you that if you don't pay me money your shop will burn down, does that stop it being a threat?

Spin says:
RD: Are you saying that a heterosexual man, upon seeing a feminine man, will be aroused? Do you not consider the fact that it is the feminity of the homosexual that may appeal to heterosexual instinct, not homosexuality itself? A non-femine homosexual will have no attraction for a heterosexual man. I thought you were a scientist...=)

E. Maddison says:
"I don't know you nor your Christian persuasion if you have one but I say that many people take quotes from books and run with them to justify opinions. The Bible is not excepted."

Like the way you refer to Paul to justify your opinions?

Justification by faith is the starting point. James 2, 14-26. And look up 1 Corinthinans 13, especially verses 1 and 13.

Romans Ch 3 V 23 and 28

In reply to an earlier post on 28 Mar 2012 00:49:23 BDT
E. Maddison says:
Ch3 V23-
Right back atcha.

V28- Refers to the law of the Old Testament and its capacity to justify. BTW, V31. Do you shave, eat seafood and wear mixed fibers?
Now address James and Corinthians.

Moi a scientist? Not at all unless you mean the science of what I observe in life.

Charlieost says:
Roger (yes that one) says: I often say to friends, "When I am looking at a gorgeous woman, especially in a barely covering things bikini and I don't know why I'm looking you can knock me on the head". My beloved wife knows that I look at other women and she feels no threat. She knows she is my only choice for intimacy, as God intended it to be.

Why is it that some Christians consider themselves to be beset by temptation when they are in fact the least likely people to ever "suffer" from it always amazes me. I bet you have to fight them off every hour of the day eh Roger. I don't suppose for a moment that being insufferable puts them off.

And one quote from Romans regarding homosexuality in the New Testament does not a word of Jesus make.

And I went to what in the UK would be considered a comprehensive. No trousers down there Roger.

And it is you who has a problem with gay people Rog. Ever wondered why that is? There are plenty of Christians who do not just as there are lots of gay Christians.

Self examined life Rog old spoon. Try it some time.

With patience. Charlie. xxx
