... And that folks is one of greatest lies anyone can ever write, imply or utter, if an "atheist" is going to lie to us(and I mean EVERYONE, this is a lie even to an Un-believer) then they might as well not debate, because they expose what they feel.
From Bible Law, CLEARLY it was not made to control people, Love Thy Neighbor as Thyself people! what did Jesus Christ(The Creator of Us and The Law) say that The Law is about?
Matthew 22: 34But when the Pharisees heard that Jesus had silenced the Sadducees, they gathered themselves together.35One of them, a lawyer, asked Him a question, testing Him,36“Teacher, which is the great commandment in the Law?”37And He said to him, “ ‘YOU SHALL LOVE THE LORD YOUR GOD WITH ALL YOUR HEART, AND WITH ALL YOUR SOUL, AND WITH ALL YOUR MIND.’38“This is the great and foremost commandment.39“The second is like it, ‘YOU SHALL LOVE YOUR NEIGHBOR AS YOURSELF.’40“On these two commandments depend the whole Law and the Prophets.” - The LORD Jesus Christ
The only Possible reasons someone can say something like this is due to,
1, They confuse PHARISEE Laws(Catholics, Baptists, Protestants) aka Man-made Laws for Real Biblical Laws, telling you right now, if you believe that any of the following is a Sin, you need to do a Long Proper Study and then Repent,
-Lust/Sexual Thought/Sexual Attraction
Because none of those are a sin in YHWH(The Father and The Son and The Holy Spirit) Word, they are man made human laws,
What does The Bible(If people just READ) say about Human Tradition?
Colossians 2:8 - See to it that no one takes you captive through hollow and deceptive philosophy, which depends on human tradition and the elemental spiritual forces of this world rather than on Christ.
Colossians 2:20If you have died with Christ to the elementary principles of the world, why, as if you were living in the world, do you submit yourself to decrees, such as,21“Do not handle, do not taste, do not touch!”22(which all refer to things destined to perish with use)—in accordance with the commandments and teachings of men?23These are matters which have, to be sure, the appearance of wisdom in self-made religion and self-abasement and severe treatment of the body, but are of no value against fleshly indulgence.
Stop being an "atheist", "Atheism" Anti-Gay, Anti-Premarital Sex, Anti-Sex is Death Bound.
Whoever says The Bible was made to "Control people" you link them here or use Colossians 2, they jerk people around with this lie, and by saying it they demonstrate that they have not read The Bible as they claim and they expose themselves as a Charlatan, also they see Atheist doctrines such as No Premarital Sex, Lust, Homosexuality as if it's in The Bible demonstrating that they did not properly study.
"atheism" is dying people, which is good, more folks go to Heaven with Jesus Christ, not worth to die and go nonexistent because you refused The Truth which is clear(Romans 1:18-20)
