This is what I see most Christians on here doing. They claim to know everything, and everyone who doesn't agree with them is lost. In the end, I join
the gods in their laughter because it is I who shipwrecks the poor fools in our debates.
Figuratively speaking, of course.
But alot also don't the Bible is mostly allegory and influenced by ancient Hebrew literature. To really understand the Bible, you must uncover the
symbology within. Also, the Bible is a book inspired by the Word of God. As such, scripture must be read prayerfully and spirtually in order for truth
to be revealed. Doing so will lead to a correct interpretation. Many Christians and atheist don't understand this and don't even attempt to comprehend
the symbology and Hebrew literature written in the Bible.
In the end, the believer and the nonbeliever need to be tolerant of the beliefs of others and accept the fact people have differing beliefs. We must
remember every single person, regardless of beliefs, is important to the journey of humankind and the earth we inhabit and crucial to the development
of the unified consciousness.
1 Corinthians 12:12-26
For as the body is one, and hath many members, and all the members of that one body, being many, are one body: so also is Christ.
For by one Spirit are we all baptized into one body, whether we be Jews or Gentiles, whether we be bond or free; and have been all made to drink into
For the body is not one member, but many.
If the foot shall say, Because I am not the hand, I am not of the body; is it therefore not of the body?
And if the ear shall say, Because I am not the eye, I am not of the body; is it therefore not of the body?
If the whole body were an eye, where were the hearing? If the whole were hearing, where were the smelling?
But now hath God set the members every one of them in the body, as it hath pleased them.
And if they were all one member, where were the body?
But now are they many members, yet but one body.
And the eye cannot say unto the hand, I have no need of thee: nor again the head to the feet, I have no need of you.
Nay, much more those members of the body, which seem to be more feeble, are necessary:
And those members of the body, which we think to be less honourable, upon these we bestow more abundant honour; and our uncomely parts have more
For our comely parts have no need: but God hath tempered the body together, having given more abundant honour to that part which lacked:
That there should be no schism in the body; but that the members should have the same care one for another.
And whether one member suffer, all the members suffer with it; or one member be honoured, all the members rejoice with it.
