    Is this a misprint?

    They have enough to do in trying to faithfully practice what is beyond dispute."

      I saw it too and was wondering as well.

          i think so ..

          is this a misprint:

          .you shall give life for life, eye for eye, tooth for tooth, hand for hand, foot for foot, burn for burn, wound for wound, stipe for stipe. Exodus 21:24-25

          ..??

                After reading the questions from both sides

                After reading the questions from both sides directed toward one another, wow.
                Many of you will know that I stronly support the death penalty, and with that said:
                Turbo's questions are extremely well set up to defend his position, but... it seems that TV's questions are just as perfect for Turbo.

                We'll see...

                  Yeah... no biggy, I contacted Turbo and we both agreed he could edit that. It was just a typo.

                    I just hate the death penalty.

                    I think we should be filled with forgiveness. My Bible is filled with forgiveness and I have a BIG Bible.

                        Theo, this seems to be a main point, and it is unintelligible to me.

                        Can you clarify? Thanks.

                          Ouch!

                          How is Theo going to repond to that????

                          That's a one sentence knock-out.

                            Round was was pretty meaty. Both sides asked some deep theological questions. I look forward to round 2!
