That's not my claim at all. I do think that Jesus wouldn't carry a gun.
I don't think He would, either.
However, in Christianity, we get our doctrine from what the text says, not what some atheist troll on the internet things Jesus would do.
Right. He wasn't concerned about those things. He took no political stances at all. It wasn't His agenda.
He clearly was concerned about them, or else He wouldn't have taught about them and given us instructions about them.
I did say IMO. I don't think that passage can be used to justify self defense with guns.
Good thing it isn't up to you, then.
"People" wrote the Declaration of Independence so it is a man made document also. We made it and we can change it. We gave ourselves the right to own guns. We can double up on it or eliminate it.
No. If God gives rights, only God can take rights away. Man cannot take our rights away.
By your logic. Hitler was perfectly justified because the Jews had no rights after he took them away.
Nevertheless, the Constitution as it stands is the law of the land. That means that, as of this time, the right of the people to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed.
"We" gave ourselves the rights in the constitution.
Where? Go ahead and quote where the Constitution gives us our rights.
He did create his own bible
No, he didn't. He did view either of the collections as a Bible, but as collections of philosophy and morals
and he removed all the supernatural stuff.
You're lying. I cited several examples of miracles in Jefferson's collections.
Not delving it out for public doesn't make it not his bible. It was "his" bible that he believed in.
And yet, at no time did he ever claim it was a Bible.
Yes he did. He threw the miracles out. See the link below.
Why Thomas Jefferson Rewrote the Bible Without Jesus' Miracles and Resurrection - HISTORY
See my comment above and the provided link.
The link only says it does not include His resurrection, His ascension, walking on water, or turning water into wine. And why would it? As I explained to you, the point of the book was not to give establish Christ's deity, but to teach His philosophy. But it still does include those miracles I cited in my previous post.
Likewise, the article confirms many of the things I told you, such as it not being a Bible, but being a book of Jesus' moral lessons. It also says that the book is NOW know as "Jefferson's Bible". As I explained to you before, it was never intended to be or considered a Bible in Jefferson's time, merely a book of moral lessons. It says he excised those portions he felt unnecessary. That's "unnecessary", not untrue. It says he didn't intend the book to be read by others. This is mostly true. He didn't intend it for publication, but he did intend it to be read by his nephew. So, most of your own link refutes what you've said and confirms most of what I told you.
I think that's what you kids call a "self pawn".
Not sure what you are talking about. I'll go back and re-read my post.
You asked me if I'd ever read what Jefferson wrote about the Bible, implying that he denigrated the Bible in some way that would prove your point.
You still haven't been man enough to show evidence.
I gave you several examples of Jefferson's views on the Bible, complete with citations.
Then you should have no problem showing examples and their citations.
We are a nation with Christians in it. We are not a Christian nation.
The Founders disagree with you. Chief Justice Brewer of the SCOTUS disagrees with you.
If we were a Christian our government would be a Theocracy in the same way the nation of Israel was in the OT.
I get that you like being ignorant, but try reading the SCOTUS decision in the "Trinity" case. It lays out a solid argument about why, although we are not a theocracy, the Christian influences on our republic do make us a Christian nation.
The constitution allows freedom of religion. This means individuals in the US can worship whatever God (Christ, Apollo, Zeus, Thor, Allah, Odin, etc) they want to. Christians tend to forget this
How have Christians forgotten this? We appear to be the only ones fighting the Democrats and the Godless Left to save the Constitution.
They wanted govt out of people's private lives as much as possible.
Good. Then we're agreed that Democrats are inconsistent with the founding principles of our republic.
Some did state this and some didn't.
The difference is that the ones who didn't never said it should be kept out of the public square, which is what you're arguing.
You are profoundly ignorant of our history.
