There are many things I just may not be Positive about,, spirits, ghost, aliens, Back Street Boys,, because the surity of being positive leaves no doubt. The fact there are over fourty one thousand denominations of christianity alone, would seem to open area for lots of doubt. Each one spanks their own version of the same ancient scripts, words chipped on bone and rock all compiled to form holy texts they hold dear as the only true bible.
Let's look at the bibles birth and growth a bit. The first edition was pretty old, 1500bc to 100 A.D. Then add Codex Vaticanus 350 A.D. Codex Sinaiticus and Alexandrinus about 450 A.D. Enter Masoretic text about 500-950 then Wcycliffe 1380 was enjoyed before adding Tyndale about 1525 which was admended ten years later 1535 to Cloverdale, with additions found in Matthews 1537, Great in 1839 and Geneve of 1560 A.D. Up pops Bishops in 1568 to long live the king in 1611 with King James, to be revised in 1769,, it spawned to English revised in 1881 then American Standard in 1901, then came modern translations like RSV in '52, Jerusalem in 1966, NASB'71, NIV in 1979, revised in '84 the REB in '92 and ESV in '01.
Ok, I weaved a bit from 1901 where secs fo Berkely, NEB, Living, NKJV, Cev and Message had versions that seem more altered from the ancient scribbles, and obvious to the higher thinker I did not enter the ancient Dead Sea Scrolls and newly discovered manuscripts of recent findings as they have not yet found their rightful place in the "bible".
Forgive me if I left off anything, it was not intentional like the Catholics removal of any text that did not glorify certain thems to be worshiped, but all in all,,, there is the birth of the bible, a path man has tried unsuccessfully to piece together that explains all.
The path eludes me a well, and I cannot positively say "this" piece of ancient works, with this one and that one is Perfect and correct. So I value the humans that extend a hand of brother love and treat others kind.
Puff, puff, pass.
That's why you take everything back to the original Hebrew, Greek, and Aramaic Manuscripts. No matter how much a scribe changes their version of the Bible, you can always get the truth from the Original Manuscripts. Just take the JW bible, when you read it, it doesn't even resemble the Original Manuscripts, they put in new verses, and changed verses from only the KJV, probably not even knowing that you can go to the Original Manuscripts and prove that the KJV is much more accurate than their version.

The Bible says not to change the script, and then tells you to beware of the ones who do change it. So, beware,, alot of false doctrine floating around out there these days. Take everything back to the Original Manuscripts and you can fully understand what's happened, and is going to happen. Why take your chances on a changed version, knowing the Bible warns you of changed version!

I used the word Faux (as in fake, false and untrue)because it is apt. How incredibly, insidiously insane does one have to be to propose that they are divinely righteous? News flash, son. If FOX had covered the teachings of Jesus in real time, they would have regarded him as akin to an OWS subversive and urged for him to be removed from conservative society.
If you do not think I know what 'Faux' means?
Evidently ... very stupid!
Still, watching Fox news is better that watching the libtards fawning all over Osama's butt!

It's not appropriate to teach religion in school. we live in a diverse society and can't teach all religions in schools. One has to keep these separate, it's up to the parents to inform their children on religious upbringing. I thought this issue was long solved, but i see it keeps coming back up.

For men will be lovers of self, lovers of money, boastful, arrogant, disobedient to their parents, ungrateful, unholy, unloving, unforgiving, malicious gossips, without self-control, brutal, haters of good, treacherous, reckless, conceited, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of god; holding to a form of godliness, although they have denied its power; always learning and never able to come to the knowledge of the truth."

<quoted text>Are you to stupid to know, people can google your vulgar bible, and read it themselves? They can also google how many of your fellow satanic worshippers are in prison right now for performing satanic child molestation in different sorts of rituals. Just because I know what it says, doesn't mean Im going to post verses from it, or links to it on this site, I find it to be an abomination. Your fellow idiot members not only committed these acts in the name of your satanic cult, they confessed to doing so, most even bragging about it.
Maybe you should do a google search on it yourself, seeing that you have no idea what your religion consist of. You yourself have been on this very site, trying to get a minor to meet with you and your fellow members, so you could have your way with him. You're nothing more than a perverted sicko. Stay away from children pervert!
Maybe you should stop lying, a Google search of "baptist youth minister sex child" produces millions of results, we all know about you catholic perverts, we all know that YOU are the ones who killed animals for blood sacrifice and drank the blood, it is your evil bible that tells you to be happy as you kill BABIES sick freak

<quoted text>
Do you believe in God ?
I'll give you my answer, as it MAY be relative of roachclip's. I believe that there is a place a person can go that is both inside and outside of their body. It escapes them and allows them to be disassociated from any reality around them. And it is, for me, peaceful. It is where I go for answers and it rests in the pit of me SOMEWHERE and connects me to SOMETHING. You can call it God, give it form, even give it a gender, whatever you gotta do, but THAT is the only thing I see "above" me. And it most certainly is not the horrible, horrible, jealous, viscous, perverted, childish, and smug "God" that is spoken of in the christian bible.

We have a very popular local church (Russell Springs, KY) that does "topless bible study". The guy who teaches teen and pre-teen sunday school classes, thought it would be a good way to teach the girls about temptation....he took off his shirt and they were suppose to suppress their desire to look at him.
now we know why churches tend to take the kids to the basement for their lessons.

OK 7th trump, here is the whole chapter so you can not say I am twisting your evil cults bible around
I let you see that this is what your bible says, YOU make shit up like the fraud you are!


By the rivers of Babylon,

there we sat down, yea, we wept,

when we remembered Zion.

2

We hanged our harps upon the willows in the midst thereof.

3

For there they that carried us away captive required of us a song;

and they that wasted us required of us mirth, saying,

Sing us one of the songs of Zion.

4

How shall we sing the LORD's song in a strange land?

5

If I forget thee, O Jerusalem,

let my right hand forget her cunning.

6

If I do not remember thee,

let my tongue cleave to the roof of my mouth;

if I prefer not Jerusalem above my chief joy.
7

Remember, O LORD, the children of Edom

in the day of Jerusalem;

who said, Rase it, rase it,

even to the foundation thereof.

8

O daughter of Babylon, who art to be destroyed;

happy shall he be, that rewardeth thee as thou hast served us. Rev. 18.6
9

Happy shall he be, that taketh and dasheth

thy little ones against the stones.


You evil sick freaks, worshiping killing innocent babies!

I like the way they twist their own bibles words, the bible clearly shows that the earth was believed to be flat by early religies, the round part was in reference to a disc shape. If you climb to a mountian top and say you see all the world, you do not think it is "round".

<quoted text>Gen 1:1,2.
In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth. And the earth was without form and void: and darkness was upon the face of the deep. And the SPIRIT of God moved upon the face of the waters.
The watchtower bible&tract society denies that the Holy Spirit is alive, the third person of the Trinity. Thusfore, changed the CORRECT translation of "....the SPIRIT of God moved upon the face of the waters", to say ".....and Gods active force was moving to and fro over the surface of the waters".
Zechariah 12:10
In this verse God is speaking, and says. And I will pour upon the house of David, and upon the inhabitants of Jerusalem, the spirit of grace and the supplications: and they shall look upon ME whom they have pierced, and they shall mourn for him, as one mourneth for his only son, and shall be in bitterness for his first born.
The Jehovah witness changed the word "ME" to "the one", so it says in their bible, ".....they will look upon the one whom they have pierced. Since the JW deny that Jesus is God in the flesh, then Zech 12:10 would present obvious problems-- so they CHANGED it.
John 1:1
In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the WORD WAS GOD.
The JW mistranslate the verse as "a god". Again, it is because they deny who Jesus is, and must change their bible to make it agree with their theology. The JW version is this "In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the word was a god".
This is only a few of MANY verses the JW have changed in the Bible. So again, I ask, why did the JW change so many verses?
May I ask you one simple question? Do you think the Apostle John contridicted himself when he said at John 1:1 "The word was God" then in John 1:18 he said,"No man hath seen God at any time;" Yet man has seen Jesus! Can you explain that contridiction?
Jehovah's Witnesses did not change verses. They had access to more accurate manuscripts that were not available to the King James translators and therefore they were able to make a more accurate translation.
Bible translator William Tyndale made a translation from the Catholic Bible and the King James Version is largely William Tyndale's translation. May I suggest you do some basic research?
And one more question: Where in the Bible do I find the word 'TRINITY'? I can answer for you: It is not in there! Do you wonder why?

God Is a Mystery—Is It True?

What you may have heard:“God works in mysterious ways.”
“The Father Incomprehensible, the Son Incomprehensible, and the Holy Ghost Incomprehensible.”—The Athanasian Creed, describing the Trinity taught by many churches of Christendom.

What the Bible teaches: Jesus said that those “taking in knowledge of ... the only true God” would receive blessings.(John 17:3) But how can we take in knowledge of God if he is a mystery? Far from concealing himself, he wants everyone to know him.—Jeremiah 31:34.
Of course, we will never know everything about God. This is to be expected because his thoughts and ways are higher than ours.—Ecclesiastes 3:11; Isaiah 55:8, 9.
How knowing the truth helps you: If God is an incomprehensible mystery, then why even try to get to know him? Yet, he enables us not only to comprehend him but also to develop a close friendship with him. God described the faithful man Abraham as “my friend,” and King David of Israel wrote:“The intimacy with Jehovah belongs to those fearful of him.”—Isaiah 41:8; Psalm 25:14.
Does the idea of having an intimate friendship with God seem farfetched? Perhaps so, but note what Acts 17:27 says:“[God] is not far off from each one of us.” In what way? Through the Bible, God provides what we need in order to know him well.*
He tells us his name, Jehovah.(Isaiah 42:8) He has recorded his deeds toward mankind so that we can know the Person behind the name. More than that, God reveals his emotions to us. He is “merciful and gracious, slow to anger and abundant in loving-kindness and truth.”(Exodus 34:6) Our actions can affect his feelings. For example, the ancient nation of Israel made him “feel hurt” when they rebelled against him, while those who wisely obey him bring him joy.—Psalm 78:40; Proverbs 27:11.
[Footnote]
For more information about what the Bible says about God, see chapter 1 of the book What Does the Bible Really Teach? published by Jehovah’s Witnesses.

You do understand that todays church people have gone from a religion that believes in a God to a social gathering that admires wealth. That is why todays church people pick and choose from the bible.
That is also why I have no respect for them, they want to elevate themselves to a social level where they are above every one else, and defame every one else. They are hate filled and money loving.
A far far removed from worshiping any god.
I do have respect for people who truly believe and try to live by their beliefs.
It is evident from the way todays church people act and how they are told to act in Matthew 25:32-46 (as well as other places) that they do not care what their bible tells them.

While you are examining the original manuscripts maybe you shoul examine why the King James translators removed God's name (JEHOVAH) over 6,000 times from his own book?????
