Your premise maybe correct in assuming the failings of man, but when one considers the people generally where scripting the Inspired Word of God under
the direct influence of God almighty, then we can believe the Original texts did get it correct.
I have said it before religion is nothing but a tool for contorling the stupid masses who "beleive" if you dont have BLIND FAITH no religion
wants you as a memeber.
Well, thats another topic, and has little to do with the subject here, isn't it. Religion in general is the realm of mankind and a sieres of
Doctrines, Dogmas and Theologies constructed by man. Religion has actually very little to do with the Bible, since for the majority of religions
(Chrisitan) out there, they pick and twist scripture out of context, inorder to have the flock presume the tenets of the perticular sect are correct,
and the flock sit there, many with a Bible in their hands, and do not even question the teachings, since they come from a house which claims it
teaches God's Word. Sad, sad, sad.
Time and time again I have heard from religious people that I need to have faith but I just dont have the ability to take there word as gospel
and not question the god or there doctorine.
Faith, hmmm. You have a problem with it do you? Well, as a Christian the only faith aspect I have in my day to day life dwells in two areas.
1: Knowing Jesus is preparing a place for me.
2: Knowing that Pray and the laying of hands will provide Miracles for those seeking such.
The balance of my beliefs are quite firmly established on TRUTHS, which are found within the Letter GOD wrote to you, here, being refered to as the
Bible. I do not need to have FAITH, inorder to make use of my Bible. It is an Historically accurate, Spiritually Blessed and Prophetic Warning that I
have no difficulties understanding or comprehending. It is user friendly, and the Ending is the Best, and not far away.
Matthew Chapter 24
32 Now learn a parable of the fig tree; When his branch is yet tender, and putteth forth leaves, ye know that summer is nigh:
33 So likewise ye, when ye shall see all these things, know that it is near, even at the doors.
34 Verily I say unto you, This generation shall not pass, till all these things be fulfilled.
The creation theroy verus evolution will never be answered if one side refuses to use logical resoning and just beleives what they are
Again, I think this is off topic, but I also will express similiar views. Those stupid Evolutionist that believe a lie. We must pray for them,
