It gives those in different economic, culture, race, sex, educational status, a hope to live life and feel better that this life isn't the only life.
(7uck You Only Live Once motivations) You live in a world of science. The Bible has information, men did not know. It names the constellations, how
to become clean (hygiene) how to make food (cakes) how to cook an animal, what shape the earth is, what length, width, and height is and more.
It's not a story book you read and imagine. It's a story book about facts. People who are atheists assume a God is real and looks like an ape, came
out of a whale and pooped out Jesus. No. It's not.
It takes one awakened soul to look pass those "stories" and read between the lines. The Bible and Quran have hidden meanings. It's not fictional.
The part "inspired by God, written by men" isn't saying god went those men to write it. Or he become flesh and wrote it. No. It merely means,
something, out there, made a group of strong intelligent and spiritual people (men and women) to come together and form an official "Here is a basic
guide book about life for our descendants." Without that book, you wouldn't have this iPhone or Android. Everyone would've died by a disease by now.
(The book of Leviticus explains basic hygiene)
Please, ignore those Christians who think they are forgiven because they said Jesus a few times and a rainbow popped up on their foreheads. They
aren't saved at all. They have ears and eyes but do not hear or see.
Look at how many of them are rich, yet pay to see Joel Oatmeal say some "special words" and leave with "yay I'm saved, by jesus." Nope, you just
feel good now because what he said stirred up some positive vibes which was picked up from a guy next to him, which then rubbed a bit off on to that
"saved" person. It's temporary feelings. That same "saved" guy is going back to work the next day with an "okay I have to work today but don't want
to, but Jesus is watching me so I have to." Attitude. He doesn't fee saved now does he?
Now as for the video you embedded. I have sent watched it but from the summary you gave. I think abolishing the Bible or Quran would mean to remove
Commandment # what ever says "thou shall not kill or murder"? And "thou shall not steal"?
If material things are replaceable and the soul isn't, did you break a commandment by stealing my candy?
If you killed my optimistic view on life, have you not killed my soul also?
Modern lifestyle here in AMERICA has killed the spiritual and replaced it with the replaceable.
If this continues, then all AMERICAS negativity will come back twice fold. It will make atheists pray and Christians to sin.
