Bible Gateway passage: Matthew 19:1-13 - King James Version
People often challenge Christians to demonstrate what Jesus said against same same marriage. My general assumption is that He said nothing in favor of it. The point is not to be unlike Christ, but to convey the information, and let people decide how to live. In the preceeding link, Jesus refers to marriage between a man and a woman, as was the religious opinion of most Jews in His day.

I ask because Song of Solomon (Song of Songs) stands in direct contrast to everything else god has to say about premarital sex, which is that it's immoral, impure, lewd, and amounts to debauchery.
One of the most telling pieces of Song of Solomon that extols premarital sex is chapter 7 verses 6-13
6 How beautiful you are and how pleasing, my love, with your delights!
7 Your stature is like that of the palm, and your breasts like clusters of fruit.
8 I said, “I will climb the palm tree; I...
I found this when researching my favourite historical figure, Jesus Christ:
Jesus may have been a hermaphrodite, claims academic
So… did Jesus of Nazareth have “hidden female physical features” and was therefore both male and female?
Does this even sound likely?
I think he had stereotypically feminine character traits, so maybe
It would also make him more representative of humanity
But we can never know for sure
And I don't think it's important anyway
And he obviously identified as...
Baha'is claim that their leader has put forward a new principle that no one had thought of before them:
"Another new principle revealed by Baha’u’llah is the injunction to investigate truth—that is to say, no man should blindly follow his ancestors and forefathers. Nay, each must see with his own eyes, hear with his own ears and investigate the truth himself in order that he may follow the truth instead of blind acquiescence and imitation of ancestral beliefs." (Abdu’l-Baha, The...
With the additional yod on the word blemished in Isaiah 52:14 in the Dead Sea Scrolls 1QIsaa, we can see Isaiah is then paraphrasing David in the Psalms.
Psalms 89:19-21 Then you spoke in vision to your saints, and said, “I have given strength to the warrior. I have exalted a young man from the people. I have found David, my servant. I have anointed him with my holy oil, (21) with whom my hand shall be established. My arm will also strengthen him.
Isaiah 52:13-14 Behold, my servant will...

My main goal of this post is to provide a place for a civilized interfaith discussion on whether Jesus is God. Since I am making the positive claim that Jesus is God, I will have to provide evidence for my position.Here goes:
A video that is your option to watch: The preceeding video discusses the original Hebrew, Aramaic, and Greek the Bible was written in. Jesus means Jehovah Is Salvation, and His Hebrew name is Yeshua, the Hebrew word for Salvation, referenced here from Bible Search and...
I notice this so far on RF with, Some: Hindus. Christians. Pagans. Probably more.
What is the reason for talking about spiritual topics of ones faith if not the bias of choosing who you want to speak with for whatever reason?
I came across this when talking to a Santeria practitioner. She, ans her friend mentioned because of Christian history they don't feel comfortable talking to white people interested in their religion. She was surprised I asked her about it being dark skinned. She...
