This is a pure and simple fact.
All the arguments for all the texts are all nothing but assertion and, if we are honest, lies.
Tearing down the ideas of millenarian religions
1 Samuel 15This is very clear and unambiguous command to genocide an entire nation, and not content to stop at children and infants, slaughter their animals as well.
2 This is what the Lord Almighty says: ‘I will punish the Amalekites for what they did to Israel when they waylaid them as they came up from Egypt. 3 Now go, attack the Amalekites and totally destroy[a] all that belongs to them. Do not spare them; put to death men and women, children and infants, cattle and sheep, camels and donkeys.’”
Exodus 11Are we supposed to feel sorry for the Holy Spirit this time?
4 So Moses said, “This is what the Lord says: ‘About midnight I will go throughout Egypt. 5 Every firstborn son in Egypt will die, from the firstborn son of Pharaoh, who sits on the throne, to the firstborn son of the female slave, who is at her hand mill, and all the firstborn of the cattle as well. 6 There will be loud wailing throughout Egypt—worse than there has ever been or ever will be again. 7 But among the Israelites not a dog will bark at any person or animal.’ Then you will know that the Lord makes a distinction between Egypt and Israel. 8 All these officials of yours will come to me, bowing down before me and saying, ‘Go, you and all the people who follow you!’ After that I will leave.” Then Moses, hot with anger, left Pharaoh.
9 The Lord had said to Moses, “Pharaoh will refuse to listen to you—so that my wonders may be multiplied in Egypt.” 10 Moses and Aaron performed all these wonders before Pharaoh, but the Lord hardened Pharaoh’s heart, and he would not let the Israelites go out of his country.
@johnzwicker1 can you say "Slavery is categorically immoral?" If not, you have NO moral authority @leahntorres @attwnministry— Dark Star (@ColdDimSum) April 9, 2013
@colddimsum @leahntorres @attwnministry What kind of a question is that?— John Zwicker (@JohnZwicker1) April 9, 2013
@johnzwicker1 can you condemn Leviticus 25:46 (take them as slaves forever) as immoral pronouncement or not?@leahntorres @attwnministry— Dark Star (@ColdDimSum) April 9, 2013
@colddimsum @leahntorres @attwnministry Viewed through the HOly Wounds of Jesus, what do you think?— John Zwicker (@JohnZwicker1) April 9, 2013
@johnzwicker1 For to name slavery a sin is to name your God a sinner, isn't that correct? @leahntorres @attwnministry— Dark Star (@ColdDimSum) April 9, 2013
@johnzwicker1 Then say "the mere tolerance of Slavery is a sin as is the commandment", can you? @leahntorres @attwnministry— Dark Star (@ColdDimSum) April 9, 2013
@colddimsum @leahntorres @attwnministry Why would I allow you to put words in my mouth? Discuss, yes. Speak for you, no.— John Zwicker (@JohnZwicker1) April 9, 2013
@johnzwicker1 I'm not the one experiencing the level of cognitive dissonance that you are evidencing @leahntorres @attwnministry— Dark Star (@ColdDimSum) April 9, 2013
@colddimsum @leahntorres @attwnministry Sorry, what ever your name is, I'm not an intellectual & thus do not grasp your duplicitous insult— John Zwicker (@JohnZwicker1) April 9, 2013
Hearing this, Jesus said to Jairus, "Don't be afraid; just believe, and she will be healed."
LORD my God, I called to you for help, and you healed me.
The LORD sustains them on their sickbed and restores them from their bed of illness.
He heals the brokenhearted and binds up their wounds.
But he was pierced for our transgressions, he was crushed for our iniquities; the punishment that brought us peace was on him, and by his wounds we are healed.
Then your light will break forth like the dawn, and your healing will quickly appear; then your righteousness will go before you, and the glory of the LORD will be your rear guard.
Heal me, LORD, and I will be healed; save me and I will be saved, for you are the one I praise.
The centurion replied, "Lord, I do not deserve to have you come under my roof. But just say the word, and my servant will be healed."
When evening came, many who were demon-possessed were brought to him, and he drove out the spirits with a word and healed all the sick.
Jesus went through all the towns and villages, teaching in their synagogues, proclaiming the good news of the kingdom and healing every disease and sickness.
He said to her, "Daughter, your faith has healed you. Go in peace and be freed from your suffering."
One day Jesus was teaching, and Pharisees and teachers of the law were sitting there. They had come from every village of Galilee and from Judea and Jerusalem. And the power of the Lord was with Jesus to heal the sick.

Revelation 21:4 And God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes: and death shall be no more, nor mourning, nor crying, nor sorrow shall be any more, for the former things are passed away.
