I already have everything that life entails. As do you. As does everybody who has a brain and body that function. Were you not aware that we are all alive? Well, until we die, anyway. And, there's no evidence that there is any life of any kind after death, so there is no rational reason to suppose that there is.

But the bible isn't just some book. It is the inspired, inerrant, infallible Word of the living God. That's why you unbelievers get so angry and upset with the Holy Bible........it convicts you deep into your very soul.

Why do you say that? I can find numerous errors. For example, the flood was physically impossible given the amount of water in the world. If all the water were brought to the surface and ice melted, the oceans would raise by less than twenty-five feet, hardly enough to cover a 16,000' mountain. Noah could not collect animals from other continents. He could not collect nor care for all the species of animals in the world. The creation account is equally false. How can such errors be called infallible and the Word of God. The Bible is obviously written by pre-scientific man.

Not really. You are the one convicting other people with your book of mythology. In fact, doing so is very much against some of the teachings in your book. Shame on you.

The Bible was never intended to be used as such.
It was written by believers for the present day and future believers simply because it was realized that Jesus was not coming back during their lifetime, so they decided to start writing down some of the oral teachings of that time to preserve them.
It is a book that can be useful for believers in search of ways to become a better Christian so its teachings are valuable to them, and them only.
It was never meant to be used the way you use it, as an instrument of condemnation.
The Bible is full of all sorts of writing styles and it is the overall message that is important.....to believers.
You cannot use the Bible to condemn anyone; the Bible does not condemn anyone.
That Authority belongs to God alone and He surely doesn't need the Bible, never did.

You don't even believe your own church's teachings. The "gospel according to Nettiebelle" is worthless to me. Just making up lies don't make them true.

God has preserved His Word in the 66 books of the Holy Bible. We are to use the scriptures for correcting, rebuking, for doctrine, instruction....etc etc.

2 Timothy 3:16- All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness:

Who is bashing? You people are the ones bashing the Word of God on a Christian forum. You don't think God's blood bought, born again, saved children won't get offended and defend our Heavenly Father's Word?

No one is bashing the word of God, they're bashing YOUR misunderstanding of the Word of God. Why don't you illiterate fundies ever understand this?

For certain persons have crept in unnoticed .. those who were long beforehand marked out for this condemnation .. ungodly persons who turn the grace of our God into licentiousness and deny our only Master and Lord, Jesus Christ ... Now I desire to remind you .. though you know all things once for all .. that the Lord .. after saving a people out of the land of Egypt .. subsequently destroyed those who did not believe
