To me that seems very dangerous to put themselves at odds with the Author of life.
There is no evidence that life has an author so there is no one to be at odds with.
It is predicted that in the last days there will be scoffers who would be walking after their own lusts.
It doesn't take a prophet to predict that people making absurd supernatural claims are going to attract scoffers. It also doesn't take a prophet to
predict that people will be "walking after their own lusts" since that's pretty much what the majority of the human population have always done
regardless of which religion they follow.
The question is, what if all that is declared in the Bible is true? What will be the arguement by those explaining why it was not believed?
The Bible cannot be true, its filled with mind-exploding paradoxes. Get this, the God of the Bible is supposed to know the future right, still
1) Creates Lucifer and gives him a promotion.
2) Plants the tree right in the middle of the Garden and does nothing to prevent the serpent tempting Eve.
3) Sends Jesus to die horrifically even though he knows all of humanity will not be saved by this plan.
The God of the Bible is also depicted as downright evil. He slaughters CHILDREN in Egypt, any human being who slaughters children would be called an
evil mass murdering psychopath and yet God still gets labeled by his followers as Holy, Righteous, Just and ALL LOVING after slaughtering innocent
children (and others all throughout the old testament)...
Also, how is infinite punishment for finite sin count as being just or fair? People are damned to hell for things as simple as being a coward, a liar
or a magician (its in Revelations 21:8).
Now I wonder, who might post here too confirm whether or not this to be truth.
I am very skeptical of prophecy in general but when said prophecy comes from a book as flawed as the Bible I know its absolute rubbish.
