it is hard for me to accept that a god responsible for creating all that is, did so, and yet chose to create a book as the only way of communication to the man he made. doesnt that just seem odd.
as for the believers. i cant get over how they pull out lines from all over the bible and put it together to suit the message they want to give. then totally ignore other parts of the bible.
i read that jesus said the world hated him and the world would also hate his followers. except for the turban heads i dont see many haters of christians, yeah they are not popular with some ppl but they are not being hated.
and the whole end times thing, from what i can tell, every generation since the bible was written think they are living in the end times.
no matter what you believe or dont one thing for sure time is limited in your current state of being, why not make the best of it that you can, for yourself and others.

The Bible is whatever book you want it to be..... For some people it is a work of fiction. For others, it can be a historical novel or it can be the most truthful book ever written. Either way, it makes for a great read.

The road to hell is wide,and the road to heaven is narrow and few find it. i have experienced sin and i know for a fact that God saved me from death and pulled me up! so he can do it for anyone who believes n him!

(antisocial) true warriors for God are hated TODAY also, prime example is pastor Tommy Bates on youtube look at how many dislikes he has for preaching the truth of the Bible. ppl dont want the truth of sin,but Tommy preaches the word of God.

God didn't create the bible little one,it was written by man through the inspiration of god.

My husband and I get up early every morning and read our Bibles together and have a " bible study" together and discuss what we read and what it means to each of us. If there is something I do not understand I get our Strong's Concordance out and seek out the answers I want.I don't have to be at work until 7:30am but we get up at 5 just to do this together,before our 7 year old granddaughter gets up from school and it is a great way to start your day and it makes for a good close marriage as well!

Sorry but I don't use "utube" or have faith in any other Tv style evangilist as I need NO human to tell me what I should feel and think,I have a very very good understanding of the word and the father.I will admit I miquoted myself.Many true beleivers have been murdered at the so called(or self-called)will of the lord.
Believe it or not but I do have huge faith in "my" god and do take much of the bible and other non-canonical writtings to heart.My use of the word christian was inappropiately used.Christians,the name of,was first made in use in Antioch and was the word to describe anyone person in faith of their same monothesiac god meaning basically anyone who had the faith was called a christian.I do not hold myself to mainstream churches and religions as I have,over the years found them to be misguided and astray of the word in my contextual understanding.

I make and do my things and say as I please but I am die-hard on the subject of faith and canonical and noncanonical writtings.I have spent several years researching such and was quit astaounded myself at my use of the referance christianand that I do wholeheartadly apologize.

ok believers
why is it that you just accept that the bible is the truth and do not question it? inspired by god or not it is man made.
here we are tiny little dots on this planet in a never ending universe which man had no part in its creation.
yet man knows the creator and has all the answers to life because this book man wrote says so.
ok
well that leads me to question why does man need forgiveness from the creator when it was the creator to made mad to start with. free will well i dont get buy that either and here is why.
if i sit my child at the table where there is a plate of chocolate candy and tell them dont eat the candy i know they wont eat it, as long as i am in the room but i also know if i leave the room im taking the candy with me or at least putting it out of their reach. so when god left adam and eve in the garden, he knew what was gonna happen.
so i dont get. man sinned so god had to give birth to his self to forgive man which was what he created in the first place.
all sounds crazy to me. someone want to explain what it is i am missing

Your missing everything.As far as I am concerned it's for each of us to understand as we will,you seem to have already made up your mind for the most part so I doubt any explanation would do you any good.

In the begining God created the heaven and the earth,he created Adam,then Eve. they were told to not eat of the tree of evil,in the Garden of Eden. but "free will" came into place.there was no sin on the earth until eve ate the forbidden fruit.

God did not give birth to Jesus,Mary gave birth to Jesus as a virgin,God brought his son into the world thru Mary in the flesh to die for the sins of the world on the cross of calvery.when he died his spirit returned to heaven.

i have seen demons leave people who believe in God,ive seen drug addicts and alcoholics set free from bondage,ive seen tumors leave the body from Gods healing power,it is Faith in God that sets you free from the chains of sin. God is alive !
