The Bible has been over translated, under translated, mistranslated, taken out of context, twisted, tortured, and burned...
Funny thing is, the ones that don't believe a single word of it seem almost transfixed by it, almost an obsession with disproving it.
So, as a mistranslation... Instead of loving my neighbor...I should hate my neighbor?
Instead of forgiving someone that transgressed against me, I should go out and kill and dismember them?
Instead of being generous...I should be selfish? Not humble but proud? Not trying to ascend to a state of spiritual ascenency but wallow in worldly
I don't understand. So...in some eyes, Jesus was just a wacked out pre-hippy spouting feel good stuff...OK. I should just drop his ideas...faith,
hope, charity, love?
From what I have read and studied from many different sources, the Bible is pretty accurate historically....accurate geographically....accurate in
ancient histories and politics.... it offers some good advice in leading a productive life..ie charity, frugality, generousity, forgiveness, not
carrying too heavy a spiritual and emotional burdens, loving people, respecting your mate or spouse, loving and guiding your children,...sound like
good ideas to me.
As such...the question is in the miracles and the spiritual greatness of it's subjects...Moses, Abraham, Jesus. Was Jesus the Son of God? I believe
so...you don't have to...I love you anyway. I respect you...and only ask as much from you.
Where you and I agree, is hoe MAN has DISTORTED the teachings of Jesus and the Bible... twisted the words to mean something they didn't for their own
benefit. I agree 100% that those people that do, should be held accountable and shown to be the charlatans that they are.
