"Just as Jesus refused to let the devil tempt him with Scriptural Literalism in the first century wilderness, we must resist the same temptation in the 21st -- because it makes no more sense now than it did then to take the Living Word of God and misuse it as the Literal Words of God. Jesus knew that -- and when he called the devil on it, the devil had no option but to "retire until a more opportune time." -Susan Russell
This is complete ignorance! Jesus Christ Himself said in rebuttal to satan,,"It is written!" HE LITERALLY believed scripture.

Satan misquoted scripture in his bid to tempt Christ and Christ told him that man does not live by bread alone but by every Word that proceedeth out of the mouth of God.

Come back when you actually know something.

What about Maccabbees? See, fundies are almost universally Protestants, so they don't use the King James version. But, if you can't demonstrate why a certain book that IS included in one version should not be included in EVERY version, then you have just as much reason to accept it as God's words, and thus you should be using the FULL Bible and not the truncated version.
What about Maccabbees? It introduces the false doctrine of purgatory. Therefore it is not a part of the bible.

REAL Christianity is a personal relationship with Christ Jesus.....being born again into the family of God........being forgiven from all of our sins and made righteous through the shed BLOOD of Jesus.........we are saved children of the living God......
TRUE Christianity is not a "religion" at all.
Atheists cannot fathom that truth. They have to pigeonhole Christianity so they can keep thinking they understand it. That is why they freak out when told it is not a religion. They have no concept of a personal relationship with God since they do not believe in Him.

By that logic, most of the bible is not part of the bible.

Why do fundies use that "Christianity is NOT a religion" line? It clearly is. What do you get out of lying? Seriously, I just don't get it. Do you think it makes Christianity seem unique among religions?

Religion has rules and regulations, the very thing Christ confronted the Pharisees about.

What do you get out of being so ignorant?

And YOU need to understand that the dictionary definition of religion INCLUDES christianity, whether you like it or not. Then you might be able to begin to grasp the fact that there is a much bigger picture that you are so desperately trying to pretend doesn't exist...
YOU need to understand that I couldn't care less what a secular book says about Christianity. You just cannot fathom a personal relationship with Jesus Christ, the God Almighty of Abraham and Isaac and all the prophets. Whether YOU like it or not.

I can understand how one's ignorance can have instances of humor, but your stupidity is not funny at all. At your age it's not ignorance anymore it's just stupid or maybe you have a low IQ as an excuse. It's just sad that somebody like you holds on to so much hate and denial. It's sad because it is such a waste of this one life we have on this planet.

If you were a church-going person; what denomination would your church be?
