    I don't really want to get involved in this thread, but I'm curious to know which Christian denominations you find "weak-minded." Throughout history, Christians have argued over how to interpret the Bible and the best way to worship God, which has lead to many splits in the church. It seems to me that they all "pick and choose which parts of the Bible they find acceptable." Does that make most of Christianity "weak-minded"? I'm sure you believe the only Christians that aren't weak-minded are whatever denomination you belong to.


Many denominations may have different interpretations, but most don't pick and choose which verses to ignore.

When you have verses like this--

Leviticus 18:22 (ESV) - You shall not lie with a male as with a woman; it is an abomination.

--there is no interpretation about it. It's black and white and described as an abomination.

This is different than disagreements between, for example, Southern Baptists and Calvinists, who disagree on philosophical points, not textually translated words.

Calvinism, based on the teachings of 16th-century Protestant Reformer John Calvin, differs from traditional Baptist theology in key aspects, particularly on the role of human free will and whether God chooses only the “elect” for salvation.
