They cut your hand off if you shoplift in a third world country. These laws are easily believable to me.

A story that would seem unbelievable to me would probably be the one where the woman turns into a pillar of salt. Or the wall of jericho. or the story about the guy who God raised up to heaven in a chariot.

OH I find it believable its just unfathomable that men could be that stupid and unthoughtful over such nonsence as to cut a womans hand off as if she were lower than dirt for touching him or his enemy. What if the guy was about to kill her husband? Most of those old testament laws were absolutely rediculous. I don't believe a thoughtful god would have written that law. That one has mans ignorance written all over it. Actually most all of the Bible is filled with unbelievable storys that contradict common logic. And it never mentioned the Dinasours.

That has to be the most backwards and rediculous thing Ive ever heard (no offense, of course). ...but it seems to sum up how a lot of xtians seem to feel about things.

Speaking of rediculous stories in the bible, though, I guess it would go to show the mindset required to believe a lot of those stories. Logic and scientific reasoning must be thrown out for the most part.

How about a talking snake????

Or that we were made of dust???
And if we were made from dust why wouldn't God make Jesus that way. Why did he need a womb of some random peasant woman to make a self proclaimed son?

The hardest one for me is the Shadrack, Meeshac and Abednigo (spelling) and the fiery furnace. Something doesn't equate there.

WTF is the bit "Why have you forsaken me?" in there? Why would he say that? Isn't his trust in God enough? It's been enough up to that time, and after that time. But not at the point where he says "Why have u forsaken me?". It's like his attitude has totally changed. His beliefs have totally changed. It's like he is totally lost and a totally differnet person. Anyways.

If someone could explain that it'd be highly appreciated. Thnx

This because when he dies all of mans sin is effectivley put on him, Therefore God cannot look at him. As can not look at sin (there is a verse iforget). This is another of jesus many sufferings on the cross not only had his friends (disiples) ran from him but his Father had hid his face from him and rejected him.

REMEMBER: Jesus was in MAN form...

he felt PAIN...

so this is why he said "why have you forsaken me"...

he was in soo much PAIN he said those words...

just what i think though...

I can't believe what God did to Adam
The guy is lonely so God creates a woman that can't follow directions, what's up with that? Then the broad goes and picks the one thing she isn't supposed to cause she got the hots for a snake, a freak'in snake.UNBELIVABLE

Tut Tut

yea the shaddrack, meshak, and abednego is pretty hard to swallow like godservant said.

i remember even when i was a gullible youth i wondered about this one.

The main story in the Bible that I have a hard time believing is Job.

Why would God to all of those horrible things to Job just to prove a point? Almost like a bar bet.

Sounds like a human-created story to me.

...On The Third Day He Rose from the dead...

in Scripture the resurrected Jusus did eat & drink & hang out among his brethern & disciples....

i take that to mean, all those beneficial microbes and
intestinal bacterias were resurrected to non-corrupt
bodies too???--> remember that re-animated Jesus
made it a point to prove to 'doubting thomas' that he
was real & alive, flesh & blood again!!

['corruptible parts' cannot make a 'uncorruptable whole']

at least thats the way i see it->> see sig.

I say take the first unbelievable tale............ eve and the snake making her do something evil. Even better dumb Adam who had the brain of a peanut following her. Don't ever see anyone cursing him do ya?

When it all begins with a tempting snake, put your seatbelt on............. it turns in a wild ride.

Burning talking bushes

OOOOOOOOOOh and a good one. God commands bears to rip up and tear apart little children because they made fun of Elisha's bald head

2 Kg.2:23-24
God sends bears to kill 42 little boys for making fun of Elisha's bald head.

None of the stories are unbelievable IMO, as long as they are placed in proper context. Taking things literally 100% of the time is a recipe for disaster.

Jesus taught in parables, why wouldn't the Father?

jonah and the whale... and if thats not in the bible

joseph and the techni-colored dream coat...
only because it sounds trippy and in elemtary school i saw a movie about it with donny osmond... and he can make anything look crappy.
