Just a curious question that is on my mind. Where is it Illegal to own a Bible?
It is not illegal to to bring your own personal Bible into China. I'm an American expat living in China with my family and we brought in our Bibles plus some Bible study material. They won't let you bring in boxes of Bibles to distribute. Chinese people can legally buy a Bible in their own language in government sanctioned Three Self Churches. Hope this helps.

I can't believe there are still people among us in this day and age that don't believe in God. Look around outside people, we are riding on a big ball that is floating in the air. Too many people get caught up in the day to day of walking on floors and grass and riding in their cars to remember, we are flying even though we aren't in an airplane.

I don't know about you, but when I stop and THINK about where all this came from, it blows my mind. Some say it was an explosion. Explosion from what? Who made what exploded? If you think deep on it, we don't have to be here. Nothing does, so why is it and where did it come from. Now I'm not just talking about Earth, I mean everything in existence, the whole matter of being itself.

Stop being a shallow thinker and really think about it sometime. It will make you realize, hey, somebody is powerful out there, because stuff just doesn't pop up or explode. Everything in existence is either programmed to reproduce or is made. So who programmed the universe and every living thing in it? It didn't just pop in to being with it's own mind, you'd have to be brain dead to think that way.

Ever living being and substance has to have a teacher in order to know what to do. Our teacher has stepped out of class for a bit and the class has become unruly and forgetful. But make no mistake, the teacher will come back to class.

The question Is Where is it Illegal to own a Bible? alot of commentary about religion and religious views. Straying away from the person's question. Where can you not have a Bible and what are the penalties for owning one?

I'm so glad someone out there has some sense. Most people who believe in science over God don't even know the science they so feverently support. Science is not from the devil. It is just a desperate quest for the truth whether you like to admit it or not, just like followers of God are desperatly searching for truth. The Word of God hasn't changed for thousands of years and has professed followers while science changes its theories of the origin of the universe constantly. The Law of Conservation of Mass/Matter taught in science classes around the world states that "mass cannot be created/destroyed, although it may be rearranged in space, and changed into different types of particles". Science contradicts itslelf, where did the Big Bang come from if there was nothing before it? If there was matter before the Big Bang why would so many believe that all that matter existed without a creator and not believe God has always been? The Word of God cannot be disproved as science has been by itself countless times.

All Muslim Nations who follow the written laws of the Fake so-called Prophet Mohammed. Penalities are usually imprisonment, excommunicated from family.

IT's illegal in 52 countries... go to " www.persecution.com " It's a web site about Christian missionaries and local folks becoming Christians and what they go through. Mostly Asian and Muslim nations... Except about 3 in Central and South America Including Cuba and Columbia.. the other in some area of Mexico.
We have it easy- we can say and do anything we want...... they are willing to suffer at the hands of other people(physical torture and imprisonment) and still keep their Christian beleifs- mUst be something to it!

Scientific concensus never contradicts itself. Science is OF COURSE constantly changing because we are always finding new knowledge and phenomenon and incorporating it into how we understand the world. Scientists know that there is more to learn than we have yet learned, and is ever evolving its concepts by accepting new knowledge and refinements.
Science is refined and provides new insights because its a process, not a static dogma. The fact that the bible hasn't changed in 2,000 years a reason to dismiss it, not a reason to reject the measurable and truly verifiable tenets of scientific discovery.
The bible, however, contradicts itself endlessly.

[QUOTE who=""]<QUOTEd text>IN GENESIS are two contradictory stories of creation. In Genesis 1:20 & 21, "every living creature" is brought forth from the waters, including every winged fowl." But in 2:19 God brings forth "every beast of the field and every fowl of the air" from dry ground.
[/QUOTE]

[QUOTE who=""]<QUOTEd text> In Genesis 1:2, earth comes into existence on the first day, completely underwater. Only by the 3rd day were waters of the deep collected, and dry land formed. But in Genesis 2:4, 5, & 6, earth on the first day was dry land, unwatered.
[/QUOTE]

[QUOTE who=""]<QUOTEd text>The first story has trees made on the 3rd day and man formed 3 days later (1:12-13 and 26-31). In the second version man was made before trees (2:7, 9). If chapter 1 is true, then fowls were created before man. If chapter 2 is true, then they were created after man.
Version one teaches man was created after all beasts. The second is clear, Adam was created before beasts.(1:25,27 versus 2:7,19).
In version one, man and woman are created simultaneously (1:27) while in version two (2:7,20-22), man and woman are separate acts of creation [/QUOTE]

[QUOTE who=""]<QUOTEd text> IN GENESIS, the long discredited description of the heavens as a "firmament" is a fundamental contradiction in the Bible of the known realities of astronomy today. Biblical stars, sun and moon are all embedded "in" this firmament.(The meaning, during biblical times, of the word "firmament," was a "solid" body or orb, or the solid concentric domes holding the heavenly bodies ~ Webster's Third International Dictionary.) We are told there are waters below the firmament, and told waters are "above" it, too (1:7). Really!![/QUOTE]

[QUOTE who=""]<QUOTEd text>As "history," the Bible is unique. In First Kings 16:6,8 the king of Israel, Baasha, dies, replaced by his son Elah during the 26th year of Asa's (King of Judah) reign. But in Second Chronicles l6:1 we read that Baasha, king of Israel, goes against Judah during Asa's 36th year.
A King dies, is buried, his son becomes King, but after a decade, the dead king leads a military adventure!
In truthful historical chronicles, dead kings stay dead, but in the Bible when a king dies, he's merely planning to pick a fight![/QUOTE]

[QUOTE who=""]<QUOTEd text>In Genesis 9:3: "Every moving thing that liveth shall be meat" for Noah. But Deuteronomy (14:7-21) later gives a list of animals, birds and fish that must not be eaten.[/QUOTE]
[QUOTE who=""]<QUOTEd text>Circumcision is required (Gen.17:10), and useless (Gal. 5:2).[/QUOTE]

[QUOTE who=""]<QUOTEd text>Abraham had two sons, Ishmael and Isaac (Gen.16:15 & 21:3) but Isaac was Abraham's "only" son?(Gen. 22:2,12 & Heb. 11:17).[/QUOTE]

[QUOTE who=""]<QUOTEd text>In Exodus 33:20, says God, "Thou canst not see my face; for there shall be no man see me and live." God must have been mistaken, or changed: For in Genesis 32:30 Jacob sees God "face to face" and lives. The same for Moses, Aaron, Nadab, Abihu and 70 elders, who saw God, and ate and drank with him (Exodus 24:9-11). But not so, says John 1:18: "No man hath seen God at any time." [/QUOTE]

[QUOTE who=""]<QUOTEd text>Exodus 31:I7: Like a man, God rests and can be "refreshed." Isaiah scorns such contemptible weakness.
In 40:28 he insists God, creator of the "ends of the earth, fainteth not, neither is weary." An infinite God cannot tire, nor needs to be - nor can be -- "refreshed." [/QUOTE]

[QUOTE who=""]<QUOTEd text>GOD does not change. James 1:17 says God has "no variableness..." but then, in Jonah 3:10, God "repented" and changed his mind about smiting Nineveh's people. So what are we to think of assurances given in Numbers 23:19, which states, "God is not a man...neither the son of man, that he should repent." Yet this tireless omnipotent God himself volunteers the striking thought in Jeremiah 15:6, "I am weary with repenting."
How human that confession sounds by a presumably unchanging God who 'cannot weary'(as Isaiah wrote above), nor repent.[/QUOTE]

[QUOTE who=""]<QUOTEd text>"Now go and smite Amelek and utterly destroy all that they have, and spare them not; but slay both man and woman infant and suckling, ox and sheep, camel and ass" (1 Sam. 15:3). That was Samuel's order for Saul originating from the Lord. Wrote one Bible commentator, M. J. Gauvin:
"Slay the old man with trembling hands and silvered hair; murder the mother who shields with her body the life of her child; rifle the cradle, and plunge the glittering sword of death through the frail form of the smiling babe ...and know, ye fiends of ruthless slaughter, ye but fulfil the command of the God whose 'mercy endureth forever'!"

[QUOTE who="roundballflying]< QUOTEd text> Some say it was an explosion. Explosion from what? Who made what exploded?[/QUOTE]

One might also ask the same question of God. WHo made God? WHere did he come from? It's just as likely that an explosion came from nowhere as the idea that God came from nowhere (even though the "explosion that came from nowhere" is not a scientific concept, actually read about cosmology please).
