Nothing. That's right – not one thing.”

    Yet God destroyed Sodom and Gomorrah. Maybe they had a change of heart.

    Jesus may not have said anything about it, but the old testament does.
    Jesus said to follow the old testament, so presumably you can take that as him saying that he agrees with it on this subject…

    so i assume Panzerbjorn, that gentle jesus, meek and mild also advocates that one kills anybody seen working on Sundays, also quite clearly spelled out in the old testament along with a laundry list of other rules related to disobeying parents, false prophecy (yah, that ones due up on the 21st of May), premarital sex, wizardry, etc…

    It seems to me, that we change the roll of many “laws” of morality within the context of conditions of existence at any given time and location; which to me is only right and proper. There is no absolute morality.

  4. Panzerbjørn Says:

    Eric, Jesus was neither meek nor mild and yes, he wasn’t adverse to a bit of genocide (According to the bible anyway)…

    It’s funny how those parts aren’t often mentioned by priests…

  5. Dan Says:

    It is rather suspect that the Jesus’s god advocated killing of people for non-Christian behavior. The culture of that region of the world – the Levant and Palestine – really doesn’t seem to have changed all that much, and if the Biblical Jesus actually existed then it’s a given that he was a product of that culture and its times.
