Re: I meant what I said
God's judgments of humanity are not immoral. That is not only absurd it is blasphemous. They are terrifying, that's for sure.

Re: I meant what I said
If there is any blasphemy here it is believing that these "scriptures" are from god.

Re: I meant what I said
If God made man in his own image, then surely that included the abilty to reason and make judgements.

And, by the judgements of modern society, the judgements that are listed in the Bible most certainly are immoral.
