Oh, the bitter hubris of the refuted. First the passage does not say slave traders, it says kidnappers.
hubris? hah classic projection. and you accuse me of being dishonest.
I quoted the biblical passage via cut and paste oh desperate wriggler for jesus Oilianus.It says slave trader
I have bolded for your sake to enable to to see past your god-given selective blindness....
Of course I do not expect your intellectual honesty nor your christian moral character to be capable of defeating your overwhelming hubris so as to enable you to acknowledge my accuracy regarding this matter.
No, I expect you'll run away now, saying something necessary, timely and ultimately cowardly like "I will no longer answer your posts" you christian defender of the faith.
Actually I expect you'll just run away without ever referring to this again (that's OK I'll come along for the
jog just to help you remember).http://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=1+Timothy+1&version=NIV
10 for the sexually immoral, for those practicing homosexuality, for slave traders and liars and perjurers—and for whatever else is contrary to the sound doctrine
Second, what kind of slave trade? There are different types.
Here's a trick, Oilianus if you are going to lie, be consistent.
Either (as you claim) the passage does not say "slave traders", in which case you are correct and you would (if that were the case) not ever even think to ask this then absolutely pointless question, or, as you have done,
you betray your knowing lie "that the passage does not say slave traders" by seeking to engineer an alternative "suitable" meaning to the supposedly unused phrase.
You really are a lightweight. I would've thought your inconstant god would've at least gird your
loins with something more effective than amateur.
Third, homosexuality is an abomination.
hold on hold on
......you can't have it both ways. Either 1Tim 1:9-10 is accurate (homosexuality is as bad a murdering your folks) or it is inaccurate as you claim (slave trading is not as bad as murdering your folks)
Or are you following the necessary christian bible reading trait of cherry picking?
Lucky that your brain is so plastic Oilianus, so at ease with inconsistency, I imagine that slippery mold-i-ness is an incredible aid in following your god's bible's inescapable inconsistency.
