    Obviously not in the mind of a god, so my point is that there is no absolute, objective, divine standard, at least not in the sense of any of the man made gods, which are the only gods we tend to have belief about.

    And yet your using an objective moral standard to make that statement. So your claim is self-refuting.

    If you read it in context then you should have understood that what I meant is that (according to you) hacking infants to death is either right or wrong in the absolute sense, objectively. Yet you contradict yourself by defending the biblical gods command to hack infants and children to death. The question for you is, which is it?

    Your the whining and complaining about moral standards in your worldview you cannot even complain about standards. I was addressing Hakeem in his post. Yet you seem to be defending him which shows your inconsistency. But please whine some more.

    Oh that'a the Old Covenant Jimmy. It was moral to hack infants to death back then. This is how this lot get around some of the more awkward texts of the OT. Unless, of course, they're texts they like and which support their particular agenda. Then it's God's Law, to be obeyed on pain of perdition.

    Another example that shows that the Bible is not literally true is Rev 22:16 “I Jesus have sent my angel to you with this testimony for the churches. I am the root and the offspring of David, the bright morning star.” However, it is a fact that Jesus came from a virgin birth, then Jesus did not have a physical father and hence Jesus could not be a physical descendant of David.
