criticism of scripture , is not always hatred. But taken that way , by a few. criticism of israel , also some are quick to label anti-semetic .
No need to use such harsh words , to describe some obvious problems with jesus the bible , and giving him label of
I have no problem with criticism of scripture... IF you take a look through my threads you might find that i am one of the biggest Critics of
scripture on these forums... but i do it tactfully, and logically...
Now what i do take issue with are those that hate on Jesus without actually reading what he said... IF you read what he said you will not be able to
deny his truth... This is how i know you haven't actually read his words...
what the op has asked. Now what is obvious here ? yoru devotion to whatever religion you are attracted too. What also shows , is how quick your
ready to label.
The only thing i've found thats obvious in our little discussion is that you do not know me... I have no religion, nor do i label myself in any
way... I just happen to have a favorite hobby, that is studying ancient scripture from various religions... i subscribe to none of them.
If your not christian i apologize , i get lost with all the different sects.
No need... you are always forgiven... but thank you none the less...
My apologies your highness .
All are equal my friend...
This is where we lose reason and logic. and dive into the relm of , subjective reasoning.
you preception of jesus all came from the bible , his stories , lessons etc. Regardless if you don't believe the bible. You still read it . You took
in information , you stored in the information in your mind. Why don't we take a vote and just get rid of the bible all together and dismiss it as a
book of Blasphemy? Would you sign up ?
Actually its very logical... according to what we have about Jesus his lessons were flawless...
I have my own issues with the bible, but i do not dismiss the book as completely irrelivant as you seem to...
That way we can teach the future kids about jesus , based on what we "feel" instead of the flawed bible . Unless you encourage giving kids
books that has many flaws and contradictions in it ? then letting them figure it out?
How would you teach your kids about Jesus without the bible?
Perhaps we might lose the teaching of Santa Clause and the tooth fairy instead of Jesus... At least he has practical value...
Did you ? could you tell me more about your metaphor of moving the mountains? take that literal ?
I've talked to many people about their beliefs... and many times after the conversation is over they are left questioning what they once thought was
Change the heart of a man and you've moved that mountain.... change the beliefs of one that thinks his beliefs are solid and you've moved that
Its not just about religion either...
