    Hmm. You won't let us answer your stupid questions with an Old Testament quote, yet you are willing to use it to misrepresent your enemies ?

    Is the Old Testament inspired scripture ?

    The pope talking about "the appropriate hermeneutic"... that's amazing. His hermeneutic includes the church fathers and the rest of the popes when speaking ex cathedra.

    It really is little wonder that CTB quotes him. As a theologian, the pope ranks up there with the Buddhists and other unbelievers he quotes.

    Do you agree or disagree with the quote in the OP?

    It is easy to attack others while staying undercover yourself.

    Don't believe I called him a coward. I said it is easy to attack other, but to remain undercover. Then I ask him ... and now you ... do you agree with the quote in the OP?

    What do you mean by inspired. Actually I know you will not answer as you almost never do ... just immaturely refuse and then insult others. Grow up Bro. Start being a man for a change.

    When you answer some of the 784 questions I have ask and you have refused to acknowledge or answer I will answer.

    Do you agree with the quote in the OP.

    Did God tell mankind to tend the earth or rape it?

    if you can't answer my question then it proves you're only a troll. Is the Old Testament inspired or not ? If you won't let others use it, why should others let you ? Answer me first.

    U

    See, when someone answers one of your questions with an Old Testament quote you laugh and deny its scripture. So according to you, YOU don't even believe the popes words, since they come from the Old Testament. So you we doing this solely to attack. You're just not very smart about it.

    Try a little consistency in your trolling.

    I am not undercover. I disagree with what the pope said. My even stronger disagreement is with you thinking that somehow his statement destroys who you call con artists.

    You use these false dichotomies that someone who disagrees with you is guilty of wanting to rape the earth which is nothing more than dishonesty.

    OK, Tom, what was God's command to mankind concerning the earth. Did he tell mankind to tend it or rape it?

    Still waiting for a mature, on-topic, rational reply on whether the Old Testament is inspired scripture or not.

    And if I answer you will still refuse to answer. That is you the way your work. I answer you off-topic silly question and they you say you refuse to discuss more. That is how we have ended up with hundreds of questions you have refused to answer or acknowledge. Grow up kid.

    And your question is not only stupid, but childish. So what was God's command to mankind concerning caring for the earth?

    I am guessing you didn't read or maybe just couldn't understand what I wrote. Your idiotic question is like to someone asking Have you stopped beating your wife?

    There are more choices to this question than the 2 you have put there. You choice of the word rape shows how heartless you are by equating sexual violence with using what God has given to us.

    Yes. To both.

    a land where you shall eat food without scarcity, in which you shall not lack anything; a land whose stones are iron, and out of whose hills you can dig copper.
    Deuteronomy 8:9 NAS77

    Job 28:1-11 NAS77
    1 "Surely there is a mine for silver, And a place where they refine gold.
    2 "Iron is taken from the dust, And from rock copper is smelted.
    3 "Man puts an end to darkness, And to the farthest limit he searches out The rock in gloom and deep shadow.
    4 "He sinks a shaft far from habitation, Forgotten by the foot; They hang and swing to and fro far from men.
    5 "The earth, from it comes food, And underneath it is turned up as fire.
    6 "Its rocks are the source of sapphires, And its dust contains gold.
    7 "The path no bird of prey knows, Nor has the falcon's eye caught sight of it.
    8 "The proud beasts have not trodden it, Nor has the fierce lion passed over it.
    9 "He puts his hand on the flint; He overturns the mountains at the base.
    10 "He hews out channels through the rocks; And his eye sees anything precious.
    11 "He dams up the streams from flowing; And what is hidden he brings out to the light.

    You shall mount on it four rows of stones; the first row shall be a row of ruby, topaz and emerald; and the second row a turquoise, a sapphire and a diamond; and the third row a jacinth, an agate and an amethyst; and the fourth row a beryl and an onyx and a jasper; they shall be set in gold filigree. You shall make the poles of acacia wood and overlay them with gold, so that. with them the table may be carried... You shall make its dishes and its pans and its jars and its bowls with which to pour drink offerings; you shall make them of pure gold.... Then you shall make a lampstand of pure gold.[Exodus 25:17-20,28,29,31a].

    Now... just from where were the Israelites to get these things to obey those commands?
