You're not in the least. Like usual, people's arguments against the plain simple meaning of the Bible are facile. Abraham gave his wives rings, so apparently Babylonian and proto-Bedouin cultural traditions trump Jesus? The metaphorical adorning Israel with jewels as a reward does too, apparently. These arguments don't even make an iota of sense, yet everyone is always giving each other pats on the back like they nailed it. Its like a horror movie where people have no reasoning at all.yeshuaisiam said:Could you PLEASE explain to me (I am not arguing with you just want an explanation), how when the scriptures say "Do not wear gold", I am unstable and twisting the scriptures by stating "Christians shouldn't wear gold".ialmisry said:only to the unstable who are twisting the Scriptures to their own destruction.yeshuaisiam said:Well the scriptures were describing gold, pearls, or costly array. I'm sorry this is ridiculous to you...? I see Christians everywhere wearing gold, yet, the scriptures seem to forbid them.biro said:Do you walk around buck naked all the time?
Unless you do, you're wearing something that costs something.
How much more ridiculous are your threads going to get?
Seriously, I just want to know how I am twisting, distorting, or misconstruing the scriptures??
