given many,. many times on these pages and others.

an infallible god would not have made all the mistakes and lies in the bible. jesus would not be just a rehash of previous religious cult myths if he was real. everything from his virgin birht to his faked resurrection is stolen from previous cults.

you worship a proven myth.

I see your words, but I still do not see any proof.
In fact, many biblical prophecies have already came true.
Fulfilled Prophecy: Evidence for the Reliability of the Bible
http://www.reasons.org/articles/articles/fulf...
10 prophecies predicted in the Bible & fulfilled in history
http://sunandshield.wordpress.com/2007/04/04/...
1. Children will be dishonorable to their parents (meaning misbehaving to dishonor them).
2. Lawlessness will abound.(look at our inner cities in USA and around the world)
3. Good will be called evil, evil will be called good.
4. Natural disasters will be like birth pains (increase in intensity, increase in number, be closer together).
5. Israel will be completely surrounded by the enemy.(Syria, Iran, Egypt, all muslim countries are enemies of Jews and Christians. Zechariah 14:1-2, Joel 3:1-3)
6. Wars and rumors of wars.(How many wars have we fought, sometimes 3 at once. How many rumors of wars do you hear daily now?)
7. Drought and famine (exist in some nations, even though we have enough food and water)
8. Disease epidemics (so many incurable diseases, some are God's punishment for sexual immorality)
9. Rise of an aggressive Fundamentalist Islamic Power (Daniel 11:40-43)
10. One world religion (Vatican or Islam) Islam certainly wants religious reign over every nation.
11. One world currency (Euro has been incorporated into many european nations)
12. One world power (United Nations seem to control our wars or European Union wants to reign supreme power)
13. Powerful religious figure (false prophet, Possibly the pope or future pope, could be leader of Islam??? Rev. 19:19-21, Rev. 13, 17, 19. Isaiah 47:1)
14. Gospel of Kingdom of God is preached to all nations (tv, radio, internet, cell phones, video cameras, satelite, cable, wireless technology now)
15. Faith again becomes a matter of life or death (many countries are murdering all of its citizen Christians and Jews Rev. 12:17, 14:12)
16. The Great Tribulation (collapse of english speaking nations, or "Jacob's trouble", Jeremiah 30:7, Luke 21:23, Matt 21:21-22)
17.heavenly signs of the Day of the Lord (Matt 24:29, Rev. 6:12-13)
18. The seven last plagues (Rev 6:17, Rev 7, 8, 11:15,/even as He returns, the deceived nations of mankind will fight and curse Him who is their very creator! Rev 16:21, 17:14)
So what you're saying is that any prophecies that haven't been fulfilled yet are still evidence while the other "prophecies" are really nothing more than the same shite happening then happening now? BRILLIANT!

I just found this very interesting. Jesus said "no on knows the exact day or time of day of His return except God, but THIS GENERATION WILL NOT PASS UNTIL THESE THINGS HAVE BEEN DONE". What does generation mean to Jesus?
Quite obviously it means whatever you fundies want it to mean rather than what it actually means. Ya know, kinda like the shape of the Earth.

You have already been provided with evidence that your Bible is not 100% correct. You have failed to address this and instead went on a spam-preaching spree.

So why be dishonest and demand evidence when you have zero interest in it in the first place?

Why is it you fundies are ALWAYS so dishonest?

I know you don't know how to argue.

"Proof" is for mathematics and booze. When debating someone you ask for evidence. Then the evidence must be judged. Does the evidence form a conclusive whole? If so the person has made their case. Is the evidence self contradictory or contradictory of other evidence? If so the person has a bit of work to do.

If you want to claim the Bible is "perfect" then you must supply a shitload of evidence. And it all has to hold together, not be self contradictory, and it has to be verifiable. We on the other hand need to find only one flaw in the Bible to show that it cannot be used in a circular argument. For example the terribly failed Tyre prophesy. Or the countless self contradictions in the Bible.

Your book does not even get off of the starting blocks before it fails.

I know the answer to this one!

Is it because without lies they have nothing?

I assume that must be the answer. Creationists never answer that question when it is given to them.

wow! you perfectly described the christians that laid the bloodiest swath this planet has ever seen across the globe in their expansion of their cult.

and the end times didn't come...just religious rule which plunged their land into the dark ages.

seems that your cult is what should be avoided. your cult did the same to the persian empire....seems like a trend, religion takes over, place turns to shit...

Wrong. Isaiah 19 has been said to be coming true for about 2,000 years now.
It lost all credibility as a prophecy by failing the Nostradamus test. If a prophecy is so vague that it can be interpreted to cover several events it is not a prophecy anymore.
Some prophecies do have a dual fulfillment and it doesn't mean it's not true. The key verse in Isaiah 19 is verse 4 "And the Egyptians will I give over into the hand of a cruel lord; and a fierce king shall rule over them..." but in verse 20 "he shall send them a savior, and a great one, and he shall deliver them". Christians say it was being fulfilled 2000 years ago because it's about the coming of the Messiah. Jesus fulfilled no messianic prophecy.

It doesn't change anything. The Bible told you to stone disobedient children because BEFORE it was written it was a known fact that kids are disobedient. That's the opposite of prophecy. It is also the opposite of good. Like I said: you fundies have call bad things good and good things bad since before the Bible was even written.

All religions started out as a cult and the living God started his cult with Abraham. You need to separate the old testament from the new. They are diametrically opposed, don't lump them together. They are about two different gods. The god of the new testament is Lucifer (Jesus) and Satan (Adam), The God of the old is the creator of the universe and mankind. We were created in the image and likeness of God, God is only human. All the gods of other nations are idols, but the Lord made the heavens. An idol is a physical representation of a (dead) god.

If you don't want to be called a liar then stop lying. Since you have been caught lying and being dishonest all you can do is cry like a baby.

Of course not. You stoop to an unfounded position of authority in which you claim to have special knowledge that you are unable to demonstrate, and anyone who disagrees is somehow deficient.

I mean, who wouldn't be offended at that?(shrug)

"age of enlightenment"...you mean knowledge of men?

James 3:13-18 ESV /
Who is wise and understanding among you? By his good conduct let him show his works in the meekness of wisdom. But if you have bitter jealousy and selfish ambition in your hearts, do not boast and be false to the truth.

This is not the wisdom that comes down from above, but is earthly, unspiritual, demonic. For where jealousy and selfish ambition exist, there will be disorder and every vile practice.

But the wisdom from above is first pure, then peaceable, gentle, open to reason, full of mercy and good fruits, impartial and sincere....

New Living Translation (2007)
&#9668; Daniel 12:4 &#9658;
But you, Daniel, keep this prophecy a secret; seal up the book until the time of the end, when many will rush here and there, and knowledge will increase."

Proverbs 13:1-25 ESV
A wise son hears his father's instruction, but a scoffer does not listen to rebuke. From the fruit of his mouth a man eats what is good, but the desire of the treacherous is for violence. Whoever guards his mouth preserves his life; he who opens wide his lips comes to ruin. The soul of the sluggard craves and gets nothing, while the soul of the diligent is richly supplied. The righteous hates falsehood, but the wicked brings shame and disgrace....
