Disclaimer: I'm a theist but not of the Abrahamic faiths. I have minor biblical scholar and scriptural skills. Also I am not a scientific/legal or
medical expert in any field. Beware of my Contagious Memes! & watch out that you don't get cut on my Occams razor.All of this is my personal
conjecture and should not be considered the absolute or most definitive state of things as they really are. Use this information at your own risk! I
accept no liability if your ideology comes crashing down around you with accompanying consequences!
Explanation: hmmmm Bigwhammy your post has holes all through it. If you are using it as a boat to keep you afloat you may just start to take on some
ignorance denying information such as this ...You state and I quote "It has been pointed out that it is a collection of 66 different books by over 40
different authors - so quite to the contrary of the poster who protested "there can't be codes" - it is a testament ot the divine inspiration of
thew holy Spirit that the collection of books has a unified message and detailed evidence of highly intentional design."...Well 1stly whilst it is
Common knowledge that the "Bible" is a collection of 66 different books by over 40 different authors...it is on the other hand quite UNCommon
knowledge as to what it itself has to say on the matter... for instance I use only itself to debunk all authors and books from Joshua onwards as being
true Canon i.e Word of YHVH HERE!
(which leaves just Moses and the Torah as
"supposedly" Authentic, but lets take that as an A PRIORI pure given.OK) [basically DON'T EVER add to YHVH's Commandments via
. And what are some of these commandments...hmmm? let me see
Deu 18:9 When thou art come into the land which the LORD thy God giveth thee, thou shalt not learn to do after the abominations of those nations.
Deu 18:10 There shall not be found among you [any one] that maketh his son or his daughter to pass through the fire, [or] that useth divination, [or]
an observer of times, or an enchanter, or a witch,
Deu 18:11 Or a charmer, or a consulter with familiar spirits, or a wizard, or a necromancer.
Deu 18:12 For all that do these things [are] an abomination unto the LORD: and because of these abominations the LORD thy God doth drive them out from
Deu 18:13 Thou shalt be perfect with the LORD thy God.
So wheres that put your statement and again I quote "In addition it is Biblical to search for them as well:
It is the glory of God to conceal a matter;
to search out a matter is the glory of kings.
as that clearly goes against scripture and wasn't Solomon a wizard and a consulter with familiar spirits etc? Solomon, I shall
fear him not!]
Furthermore I would like to point out more scriptures from the Torah to make this point of what it says about itself (or if you prefer...what YHVH has
to say about it through Moses!) concerning the issue of taking the LAW at FACE VALUE.
. Specifically Deut 30:11 which I quote directly from the
KJV with Bold as MY emphasis ..."Deu 30:11 For this commandment which I command thee this day, it [is] not hidden from thee
, neither [is] it
far off." and here is a scripture (Deut 6:1-25
) from the Torah (or The
LAW) that explains the purpose of the LAW (of love vrs 5) and how it should be taught (vrs's 20-25) and there is nothing on finding any hidden codes
etc....So where does that leave your statement and I quote "Also discovering deeper levels of meaning is not adding to message, as another poster
claimed, for nothing is added only discovered from what is already there."?
...There isn't any thing hidden deep in the text that's
SCRIPTURALLY valid at all because that would be The Forer Effect
in Full Effect!
Finally you state without references and I quote "Because the scripture is authored by extraterrestrial super intelligence which exists outside of
our time domain - it is wholly consistent that we are still discovering elements of the text." and I would like to direct you to my
in another thread which, although it uses scripture from books and
authors I have already debunked as being valid, those scriptures are nearly always used to define YHVH's Global powers etc. I'm just wondering if
you could show me in any of those scriptures (or any other scriptures you can provide) where YHVH exists outside time?
Even in Gen 1:1 In the
beginning God created the heaven and the earth.....YHVH wasn't OUTSIDE or BEFORE or GREATER THAN the beginning...he was what...hmmm lets see now...he
was IN the beginning (which being from the Torah agrees with my POV that the NON Canon scriptures referring to YHVH's OMNI states of being are a
furphy as well!!!)
Personal Disclosure: Once Again I am NOT Claiming that there ISN'T any hidden codes or messages in the bible as there is and I think that the OP
showed that quite conclusively, but this is mystical and esoteric in nature and
NOT, I repeat NOT
valid scripture and its no use denying it! Unless you care to provide scriptural proofs for your arguments from the Torah
and then I might just start agreeing with you.
