    I don't think you are going to hell for any of that, because you do not blaspheme against the Holy Ghost. Blasphemy against the Holy Ghost is detestation of the Light of God, but you love God. The detestation of the Light has no remedy and cannot be forgiven—that is to say, it is impossible for him to come near unto God.

    Matthew 12:31 Wherefore I say unto you, All manner of sin and blasphemy shall be forgiven unto men: but the blasphemy against the Holy Ghost shall not be forgiven unto men.

    Do you think these rules you believe in apply to all humans?

    So Hindus are wrong, in your way of thinking?

    So perhaps protestants were wrong to deviate from the Catholic Church?

    It does for those
    that have faith in it

    If you have no faith in it, its just another Harry Potter novel. Why fret over it?

    It might still be a sin, but it is a sin that can be forgiven (Matthew 12:31).

    Clearly you don't care that it's just an old book written by a bunch of fallible humans making unsubstantiated claims. The point of my post was to state that it's silly to consider anything sinful until you this god being clearly states what IT considers to be a sin, and not what some fallible humans CLAIM this god being considers to be a sin.

    That's just it, we don't. But we are curious why some believers think their beliefs and the Bible has an implied authority. This is why I am asking directly. Thanks for admitting the Bible and Christianity has no significance beyond believers. This means non-Christians aren't sinners.

    Yeah, I discovered things that can happen during sex that are good for no one involved, probably worse for her than me because I knew what was going on and spared the inordinate self consciousness, self doubts, blow to image amd self esteem, that sort of thing when arousal is suddenly lost mid-coitus.

    What is Bible view on this? What book does say that non-Christians are holy men? No such books. The books say that Bob is holy man but do not say that he is holy man because he is non-Christian. Books just say that Bob is wise, holy man. No addition about Christianity.

    It is also newer so I believe the New Testament supersedes the Old Testament.
    (That's Baha'i speak. ;))

    Being curious doesn't involve criticism.

    Then Christians should not be critical of non-Christians since the rules Christians believe in only apply to them, yes?

    Why didn't you at least look into the novel to see what it is before making such a bad comparison?
