What "accuracy" and "facts" were missing, according to the article? Or did you even read it?

Lol. As if "Christians" don't omit much of the bible that doesn't suit what they want to believe! That's why so many different denominations exist...each one decides what is biblical "accuracy" and "fact", and they may differ from each other by 180 degrees.

For instance, right wing fundamentalist "Christians" love any verse in the bible that apparently condemns homosexuality, and they freely use their interpretation to hate. But at the same tine, many "Christians" completely discount all the love verses in scripture, choosing to apply them selectively.

Another set of scriptures most "Christians" either ignore or outright deny are those dealing with the doctrine of predestination and election, even though these verses and passages are throughout the bible. It is an unpleasant concept to many "Christians" and difficult to understand or explain, so they never address it.....or say it means something that is more palatable to them.

Christians have been omitting biblical "accuracy" and "facts" as far back as humans gave existed.

If honesty is to be the rule of the day, let's include the Secret Gospel of Mark, which suggests that Jesus had homosexual encounters. Put that in your Thurible and smoke it. LOL

when he is able to view "Noah" he will realize what a terrible story (Noah) is to tell children.

Talk about a strange and damaging tale for little kids.

We will talk more, I am sure.

What are Biblical accuracies and facts? Should I ask a Baptist or a Catholic? A Mormon or a Methodist? A Seventh Day Adventist or a Jehovah's Witness?

Does anyone know?

I'm sure the only church that maintains accuracy and facts would be Kingdom Connection Cowboy Church. Ask them.
