    God knows...


    God knows precisely what He's doing and, therefore, naturally thinks and speaks in direct terms... 'yes' and 'no', not maybe or 'we'll see' or any other indecisive form of lukewarm.

    Your view?

    hmmm, he speaks as a father does to his children, with consistency and their best interests at heart.

    Condemning people to death by stoning is having 'their best interests at heart'?! That's a new one on me.

    I think he must mean "having the best interest of the community in heart"
    unless he believes that the evil sinners will be better off having committed less
    sins to be judged for in the final judgment by our God.

    Maybe he had the best interest of the purity and cleanlyness of the rest of the honest and good people around his nation he wanted to protect and keep free from sexualy transmitted diseases, unwanted pregnancies, broken marriages? Is that beyound your concept?

    I fail to see how drowning anyone en masse is either consistent (consistent with what?) or in the victim's best interests.

    This is a variation of those circular arguments that theists are so fond of i.e 'Whatever god does is perfect by virtue of the fact god does it' He could sexually molest kittens and his followers would not only say the kittens deserved it but would probably molest kittens on 'kitten molestation Thursday'.

    'Whatever god does is perfect by virtue of the fact God Himself is perfect'.

    consistent with Gods justice, after all, he reasoned with Abraham that if one faithful
    person was found in Sodom, he would spare the entire city, clearly then the world which
    was destroyed was irredeemable.

    Yeah that's it, perfect example of a circular argument.

    Have you ever watched a video of someone being stoned to death? I can post you a link if you want, watch it, and then tell me how what you watched is having the persons best interests at heart.

    I believe Moses was thinking of the best interest of the community, not the one
    being stoned. He made stoning laws in an attempt to discourage and prevent
    evil.

    P.S. It is similiar to the death penalty today. We just have different methods.

    Another slick thread chaps.

    Pls dont post that in the public forum Proper Knob.

    And every one else that claims to know what god said-

    Is this just what he said through the bible or is "he" still speaking today?
