Cherry Picking how to get rid of black ants in my house… especially interested in theist views Page 12 Religious Forums

Click to expand…My position is that while slavery is certainly not ideal how to get rid of black ants in my house (freedom and equality are unquestionably the ideals), it is also not inherently immoral. There are ways about which we might allow people to how to get rid of black ants in my house enter a slavery/servant position which are morally permissible, and there are manners of treating slaves/servants which are morally permissible. These ideas maybe contrary to the common positions of our how to get rid of black ants in my house present society – but that doesn’t make them wrong. The scriptures didn’t consider slaves to be sub-human things to be used, abused, and tossed out when they can no longer work. Rather, the scriptures constantly remind the israelites that they were once how to get rid of black ants in my house slaves in egypt – and to this day the jewish people celebrate passover. This offers a unique perspective on slavery that is fundamentally how to get rid of black ants in my house different from so many other cultures. And this is why while the scriptures permit slavery, they simultaneously talk of the rights of slaves, speaking of the responsibilities a masters has to a slave how to get rid of black ants in my house (or he must let them go free of charge), etc. The scriptures even talk of spoiling a slave from a how to get rid of black ants in my house young age, such that they become a son.

None of the abominations are explained, but there is a hint that it would cause jews how to get rid of black ants in my house in the bronze age to become like the nations around how to get rid of black ants in my house them. An ‘abomination’ means its something the jewish men aren’t supposed to do for reasons which are not explained how to get rid of black ants in my house to us. The word appears and is used to describe things they how to get rid of black ants in my house aren’t allowed to do, but it doesn’t describe everything illegal. Eating the wrong food is an abomination. Murder is just illegal and evil.

The punishment for abomination is also unclear. All abominations carry grave sentences (always death) for them that might contradict one of the great ten how to get rid of black ants in my house commandments which is do not murder, and the covenant of noah says that no man shall how to get rid of black ants in my house be killed unless he has killed someone. The result is a legal system it seems in which how to get rid of black ants in my house someone who does these abominations is excluded but not killed how to get rid of black ants in my house physically. They probably are legally considered dead. Whether they can be brought back to life I do how to get rid of black ants in my house not know. We are all guessing, because it is from so long ago. My guess is (everything I have said is a guess) they were kicked out of the community unless they agreed how to get rid of black ants in my house to reform, but I don’t know. If they hadn’t murdered it would be illegal to kill them.

Speaking from experience as a moderator it is sometimes a how to get rid of black ants in my house good idea to report a post that accuses you directly how to get rid of black ants in my house of lying. Its complicated, but we try to discourage that since there is no how to get rid of black ants in my house defense. Its declaration that civil conversation with you is not possible. If somebody really thinks you’re lying we’d prefer that they simply add you to their ignore how to get rid of black ants in my house list instead of trying to cause a vicious I’m-right-you’re-wrong match. They’re just creating work for us and scaring other people how to get rid of black ants in my house away from conversation. Accusations of lying are sometimes considered considered trolling, preaching or insulting. Technically you are allowed to lie and to disagree as how to get rid of black ants in my house long as you don’t troll, because we just can’t police truth very easily. Yes if somebody is really being a super liar its how to get rid of black ants in my house possible we’d let somebody call them that, but usually its not allowed.

I watched shapiro make an explanation of it that at how to get rid of black ants in my house least gives some clarity and name some caveats which may how to get rid of black ants in my house be appreciated to some degree. (though I’m not a fan of his) namely, that such verses in the covenant aren’t externalized, therefore outside of it we are the free architects of how to get rid of black ants in my house whatever law or moral system we choose. As to people who are naturally homosexual within his religious how to get rid of black ants in my house community, shapiro drew the distinction between acting out those feelings and how to get rid of black ants in my house just having them, the former he says is the sin and the latter how to get rid of black ants in my house is not. How such a person should deal with that I have how to get rid of black ants in my house no comment on, I don’t know.

One might ask how such verses are read in christianity. I think that probably, a lot of times they seem to read such verses how to get rid of black ants in my house in a favorable view as it relates to sin. Though I may wrong, I can’t recall one instance where any of the gospels or how to get rid of black ants in my house epistles deal with topic. Contrariwise, and I mean this without an iota of sardonic inflection, but with whatever objective focus of the intellect I can how to get rid of black ants in my house muster, I think that christian history seems much tilted toward gender how to get rid of black ants in my house exclusive amiability. The concept of brotherhood so often seems described as having how to get rid of black ants in my house the widest berth of affection, tied into even mortality, that I am unsure if such feelings are to be how to get rid of black ants in my house perceived as registering as within assigned bound.

The first point is essentially "love the sinner, hate the sin" argument. If I was to say "I don’t hate that you’re a baseball player, I just hate that you play baseball" you might be able to see the problem with this how to get rid of black ants in my house argument. Is someone gay if they aren’t "gay"? Secuality is inexorable from a person’s identity, so theres a reasonable argument to me made that hating how to get rid of black ants in my house homosexual acts is to hate the expression of that persons how to get rid of black ants in my house identity. Therefore, it’s homophobia.

Secondly, I’m afraid that I don’t put much stock into christian historians. The main reason is that they set out with something how to get rid of black ants in my house to prove, and this automatically makes their work subject to their bias. However, in this case, I think a layperson in biblical studies can see through how to get rid of black ants in my house the conclusion that the bible is tilted towards gender exlusive how to get rid of black ants in my house amiability. For example, how much is a slave worth? How about a woman slave? Should women obey their husbands? In the story (which even some christian historians have concluded is likely false) about jesus asking the person without sin to start stoning how to get rid of black ants in my house the adultress caught in the act, where was the adulterer? The woman is the only recipient of the any sort how to get rid of black ants in my house of reported punishment.

Click to expand…I agree it’s probably fiction (I don’t like to make claims I can’t 100% prove to be true), but arguing about its morality and the morality of montheistic how to get rid of black ants in my house religion is never a waste of time; these groups can, and do, attempt to legislate their religious values which are based upon how to get rid of black ants in my house the heinous teachings of rambling, violent, intolerant misogynists. I don’t try to prove that their claims are false, as that’s not my job. Its on them to claim why their claims are truth; I’ll just point out why their arguments are fallacious, immoral an/or nonsensical.

I’d love to talk about a philisophical position on god! Do you mean a deistic veiw as in "there is probably a god but it doesnt care or how to get rid of black ants in my house even necessarily know about us" sort of thing? That way, we can get away from the monstrosity that is christianity/islam/judaism.

The origin of the universe is something we will probably how to get rid of black ants in my house never understand, certainly not in our lifetimes. There are a plethora of possible explainations – and none have much more evidence that any other. I don’t necessarily see that any "creator" or other supernatural, conscious being had to have kicked it all off. In fact, although its one possible cause, I think its probably more true to say that as how to get rid of black ants in my house humans, it’s impossible for us to truly comprehend the concept of how to get rid of black ants in my house "what came before". I’m happy to accept that whatever came before defies my how to get rid of black ants in my house capability to understand it (if ‘it’ even happened).

I’d argue that whatever came before was natural as far how to get rid of black ants in my house as the bounds of that reality allowed, and that if something exists that can consciously create something how to get rid of black ants in my house in this universe then it must adhere to the laws how to get rid of black ants in my house of this universe; rendering it natural as opposed to supernatural.
