i personally have nothing against the bible but to believe it is divine or perfect is just ridiculous. the contradictions are too numerous and come entirely too often from beginning to end for it to be divine. as one would expect with a book written by several different authors with poor editing the book contradicts itself time and time again. i would like a copy of the bible that only has the stuff jesus said and nothing else. just the stuff that's in red in most bibles. i think if you look at just the things he said you'd have a good direction for where to take your life and how to get into heaven if there is a heaven (i don't personally believe in "heaven" as most would think of it)

The things "jesus said" in the Bible are no more reliable than the rest of it.

I am a Christian but I also believe like some others have said we live in the U.S.A and u have the right to believe whatever u want. I do not want anyone telling me what i should be believing in or worshiping or praying to! So I cant really tell u what u believe is wrong can I when u may think what I believe is? As a christian we are suppose to try and lead people to the Lord I personally do not feel you will accomplish that by making someone feel like they are wrong or by pressuring them. I am sure there will be lots that disagree but religion is a personal thing and if you want to keep yours you may want to explore the option of letting others have their rights as well and put the rest in God's hands. We have many different religions here anyways you just dont view them like you are this we have muslim church, we have church of science thing (sorry forget exactly what its called),Pentecostal,nondenom,b aptist,Jehovah witness. while some may have things in common they still differ in ways. I have never ever had an atheist knock at my door and talk to me about what they believe so i dont think anyone should worry to much about that they will be bothering u!

if you just read the stuff "jesus said" it does give you a good direction for life jesus was a hippie the first hippie he preached a message of love and peace and forgiveness and beauty and respect and didn't care for the government or confines that society put on him. jesus was a hippie who had a message that could make this world a better place i don't really believe jesus said the things in the bible word for word or at all for that matter im not a christian i don't believe him to be lord or savior just a man with a good message a great message and despite me not believing him to be some spiritual savior i do believe his message and story to be one worth reading

They are doing it to get attention. Deep in their hearts, they know there is a God, but don't want to have anyone over them in the things they do.
Christians do nice things only for attention. Deep in their hearts they know there is no God, but they have to have someone to blame for all their troubles and to let them feel like it is okay to do a bad thing every once in awhile as long as they "repent".

When you write a huge wall of text, with no punctuation, most people generally disregard it because it's too much effort to translate. Thus, you aren't really getting a point across.
