I know AshleyD can sufficiently address this, but, I'm not one to sit idly by.
well done chap. well done..its good to come to the aid of your allies
let me ask U the question..have you taken the time to check her
The same thing that is done in 'scientific' fields, especially evolution.
Whose suppositions will change many times each year. Their conjecture
is what most of their careers are based on.
It can't be PROVEN. Just because someone says, "It's a FACT!"
and here we go! a comeback I suppose was the intention here.. please point out when and where I said evolution was the all-encompassing answer that
you seem to be implying somehow?
this is where the defensiveness gets so old. it is almost sad that because you feel such a need to protect the beliefs that are ingrained in your
bones that you want...need...HAVE to comeback with such a trivial completely off topic statement..where does this come from?..seriously
please..if you would like to express yourself..find a way that does not completely derail the topic. I believe ashley made a thread about
evolution..feel free to apply these comments to that subject
I think most every Christian here has said or implied that we are not infallible or perfect.
are you responding to me?...if you are..when did i say christians said they are perfect?..either you, somehow, completely misconstrued what I said or
you re-aranged a message that never indicated anything of the sort so you could come across righteous...interesting christian approach that never has
been attempted before......lol
**please note sarcasm**
Bible being perfect is a different matter, since it IS perfect!
The Living Word.
hallelujah folks!..you heard it here..the bible IS PERFECT! thank you for revealing the 'forbidden knowledge'....
you know..this crap i just wrote above is completely unnecessary..just as your assertion that the bible is perfect is completely unnecessary. i hope
god gave you a big pat on the back for it..or maybe a star by your name in the book of peter next to the pearly gates...
i mean this in the most un-negative, nicest way possible....instead of blatantly stateing something (input many adjectives here) as this maybe you
should try to step down from that mile high pedestal you are standing on and humble yourself for one instant....maybe, just maybe then you might
enlighten yourself the tiniest amount to understand that sometimes it is better to say nothing at all than to express what your 'infallable' brain
thinks it knows...hope i was not to harsh
It can hide pearls of wisdom from the foolish or give it's treasures to those who LOVE the truth!
please enlighten us on these pearls of wisdom...we understand your intellect tips the scale is on a much higher level than the rest of us foolish
goyim..so please...do tell
i do agree lessons can be learned from the bible..specifically the old testament, but i am sure you will not agree on which lessons these are.
It's also a mirror, where, like it or not, God CAN show you your spiritual condition.(Most people don't care to know.)
yes..i would absolutely deplore to think God can show me spirituality
if you are so positive that the bible is so infallable then why even respond? especially without taking into consideration as to why certain
questions are being asked in the first place...you dont even consider considering the possiblility that there may be something to all the skepticism
about the bible....if your beliefs are so concrete in your being, then what would be the point in even debating different aspects of christianity?
i am more than willing and more than happy to recognize a well thought out reply from a devout christian. And I would absolutely consider
re-converting to christianity if clarifying evidence surfaced that defied my understanding and interpretation of the Bible.
But to listen to someone spout 'knowledge' with absolute certainty only gives more credence to my beliefs.
True reason and logic?
I haven't seen you or your like-minded posters provide ANY that is contrary to the scriptures.
that is because you read posts with such a narrow minded, one sided, biased approach that you couldn't recognize anothers well rounded reasonable
argument if it were there slappin you in the face. this is evident just from this post you so 'delicately' tried to reply to.
After all "the Bible IS perfect"..right?
ever wonder why the Bible needs soooo much defence from its loyal subscribers?
If it were "PERFECT" as you arrogantly stated, dont you think it would be knocking doubters out of the park everytime? maybe it would appeal to
EVERYONES sense of human nature..since we are all humans, correct? but that is simply not the case, unfortunately. Some people doubt and don't take
it as infallable. and some are SO scared they could be wrong they do everything they can to diminish other perspective and critical thinking.
and there are those that give the case "oh its perfect alright...See..it says it right here...in verse blah blah, chapter blah blah, book blah
blah.." never have I heard it is perfect because of this example or that example.
and like i previously stated before. i would be more than happy to retract EVERYTHING I have said in this post and other posts if someone can give
some serious evidence in validating the Bible and its claims (specifically the covenant between 'God' and Abraham)
so as i have stated before the ball is in the christian court. provide the evidence or be prepared to face many skeptics on all fronts. and if your
knowledge is limited so that you can not find anything to say except: "the Bible IS perfect because it is" then just keep it to
the people in the Bible, self-admittingly were not perfect, and these main characters were not even the ones who actually put the pen to the paper
and wrote most of the thing. So you are taking a third party account (not to mention the many arguments and debates about the authenticity of the
claims themselves) and calling it perfect.
if that is not dillusional then i don't know what is.
