    Sons of snakes? Book and paragraph!

    Jesus was speaking to the Pharisees, not his followers

    He's probably referring to Matthew 23:33, but the intended audience wasn't "leftists", but the Pharisees.

    The language is unclear to those who refuse to hear.

    Since you guys know the Bible so well, Jesus was speaking to the Pharisees.
    I love how you twisted that one to suit yourself.

    Many people cherish the Bible because they can so easily bend the interpretation of the text to support any ideological position they choose.

    The Bible was often cited as the justification for slavery, back before slavery was outlawed.

    That's news to me. It sure didn't get the press his leaving did.

    Jimmy made it clear he was leaving because of the policies about women.i

    Southern Baptist again and how they think of women. His Church changed their rules.

    As you know I have often posted about the struggle in the Church and the shrinking.

    A man I have known since he was born was a long time Missionary in Brazil. His beliefs are so rigid it is hard to imagine that little boy I knewbecome so dogmatic.

    His parents were both Democrats.

    True. I seldom read the Old Testament any more since Christians are under a New Covanant teaching love,Inclusion of all. The old,hateful,revenge seeking is gone for me. And millions of others.
