    Do you read the Bible?

    • ExPPP_Man

      Which Bible ? The Bible according to who ? When u say read the bible, you gotta be little more specific, because there over 100 versions, all telling a different story.

      • rudeo

        All saying “Vengeance is Mine”…said the “Lord”

        Kudos to you Ex, that is the perfect answer, and actually there are over 3000 versions which on a daily they extrapolate from one version and a few days after they will add some thing totally foreign to the actual words of Jesus.

        Ex KKK dude… we atheists folks who know something about the Bible refer to it as dispensation… now do you know which dispensations were influenced by Satan!… and please don’t pay attention to the version by the slaveowner!

            Salamu Col got it have a good rest my brother.

      I believe that the Old Testament specifies death for murder and a number of lesser offences. I think you probably meant to ask if Yannick had read the New Testament which does not overrule the old but at the same time does not trumpet draconian penalties. I’m open to correction here.

      • Yannick23

        Brother Lancelot B I think you hit it on the head of the nail Amen.

        LB : contemporary thinking…good for you!

    • Yannick23

      Yes brother I have studied comparative Religion for seven years. By the way which version of Bible are you speaking about, and what is exactly is your point Bro.
