Sounds more like the devil trying to trick you into thinking that. He'll do that.
I'm sorry if you feel that way you shouldn't have to. Don't listen to what the world says.

Thank you.

Even if we abandon Christianity as a religion, we won't have to destroy everything that has arisen from it.

sorry but shadow girl is the arch type of what I despise, unquestioning religous zealot who refuses to open their mind. Its why being gay in today's world is such a freaking struggle!

For a book that ancient, it is quite impressively preserved. This is a really silly accusation.

Quote:
Second, it contraindicates itself on many passages,

Name one. Or several, since you think there are so many.

Quote:
third, its a book of morality from the roman times written in Aramaic,

The New Testament is from Roman times, but the rest of it is from pre-Roman times.

Other than portions of Ezra and Daniel, and a very few sentence-long quotes elsewhere, none of the Bible is written in Aramaic. It's written in Hebrew and Greek.

Neither of these things are disputed or difficult to find out. Why should I believe what you say about the Bible if you're too lazy to even skim a wikipedia article on it?

I believe the Bible should be interpreted by itself, where a context of the whole Bible is known. This is called Biblical theology. Of course the Bible is long, and you can't get to know the narrative context without some serious reading.

This diagram will be included in my up-and-coming essay about Christianity as a tool of oppression of Christian enjoyers against Christian servants, and it would specifically apply to me (sorry, Shadowgirl):

I say gladly then I walk with Satan, for he speaks the truth without claiming to be rightous, he says how things are and since you think I am going to hell for my nonbelief, might as well get something out of the deal. :twisted:

There is no story of Judas bursting into flames.

Evidence please? The Bible has been transmitted quite accurately through the centuries.


Just google a bit for "Codex Vaticanus" ...

Ever read a translation of the Epic of Gilgamesh that didn't try to smooth over the missing bits? For a book of it's age, the Bible has an enormous amount of evidence that agrees with itself the majority of the time.

Whatever transcription errors have accumulated over the centuries certainly don't add up to "a farce of its original self".
