As opposed to the whinings of Arthur Brain...
Bet you didn't even bother to look the verses I posted up.
If it were legalism, Arthur, then I would be promoting every law in every book under the sun.
But I don't. I promote five laws, on which the foundations of society rest upon, and from whence all other just laws are derived from.
Looks like I was right. You didn't even bother to read the verses I referenced.
But please, make a counter-argument. Show, from scripture, where it supports your position. Prove me wrong.
You can't, because 1) you won't even try, and 2) even if you did, you wouldn't be able to, because the Bible doesn't support the idea that children be punished for crime differently than adults.
Why? Because that idea came long after the Bible was written, because ACTUAL legalists needed to put into law-books what should have never needed to be, because society slowly stopped teaching basic morality to the next generation. Look where that's gotten us today. Homos and pedophiles roam the streets unafraid, murderers run rampant, children are taught by strangers while their parents work, all while those who stand against such things are pushed further and further from the public square.
The Bible was written in a way that expects the one reading it to be on the same page (pardon the pun) as the one writing it. Meaning that the authors expected people to be aware that many laws are simply unnecessary when the basics, the fundamentals, if you will, are firmly ingrained in one's mind. In other words, you don't need laws specifically telling people not to take money from the cash register, because "you shall not steal" covers all forms of theft.
I just gave you what you keep denying exists. The saying holds true: you can lead a horse to water, but you can't make him drink it.
Throwing a tantrum and using fallacies won't make your beliefs any less false.
Ad hominem, and disrespect of a moderator has earned you a warning and temporary ban.
Then why are you still here?
Misery loves company, is my guess.
