Nope he only asked how /when, like any other mere mortal would.
Lie. He also said his wife was past the age of childbearing. You do not know what menopause is. Look it up, but there is no need to lie.
god doesn’t punish anyone, does he?
I never said this. Please stop lying.
Here look, show us all where is anyone struckdumb or even punished.
So what? God is not a machine and does not have to do the same thing each time. Zack did not need to say anything out loud. God could read his heart. God's judgment was that he would be dumb till the birth of the baby. His judgement did not need to satisfy you or pass your standard.
Do you actually believe that this man who walked "IN ALL the commandments and ordinances of his god" would have ignored his gods earlier example of bringing forth babies from "old and barren " women ?
Sure. You do similar. You say Zach worked in the "Holiest place on earth." What made it holy? God made it holy, yet here you are, ignorantly rejecting the judgement of the very God you are claiming is holy. You accept the verses that say he was a righteous man, but reject the verses saying he was struck dumb.
If you are dumb enough to cherry pick the bible, I have no quarrel with you. I have zero interest in debating illogical people. Instead of debate, I'll just toss you for lolz.
Here read for yourself and show us all here how this non punishment story compares to the extreme punishment of Zacharias who did nothing wrong.
Neither is a "punishment" story einstein. They are similar in that God made a promise of a son to a couple where the woman was past childbearing age. The details of the story do not need to be the same. It is a different story, at a different time, with different people. Think man.
You are pretty good at name calling and throwing accusations of ignorance around the place,
Sorry sir, but I don't do it just to insult you. It is obvious that you are poor at logic and ignorant. These are facts, not insults. The fact that you could not address what the phrase, "well stricken in years" means, shows your ignorance. You hounded MoPac for not answering your questions, but here you are dodging questions. Is that not hypocritical?
....asking us all to simply accept that this so called god has supernatural mind reading powers.
Lol. If you don't accept the Christian definition of God, your entire argument become nonsense. You aren't talking about the Christian God, as such, I couldn't care less about what you think.
Either you accept the bible's account, or you don't. But I will not cherry-pick with you. God is omniscient. If you don't think God is, then your questions and expectations are idiocy.
"Whereby shall I know this?"
So in the case of Zacharias this means - I believe you by which method and when?
Untrue. It means by what means shall I know this is true? And as we can see from God's response, your interpretation is nonsense.
You should be looking at Abraham's first born by his Egyptian slave.
I don't care for your non-biblical rantings. Every false prophet like you has an...
...but I believe Ishmael is key and ‘fits’ more closely to the baptist story and than people like you care to realise.
....that he places as higher truth than scripture. What you believe carries no authority. And when what you believe contradicts the bible, I will throw it out wholesale.
Thanks for your time.
