Of course I know the answer; the Bible can not be trusted because of the huge number of errors, contradictions and fallacies.
Why, here is another example right now:
Jesus--"Think not that I am come to destroy the law, or the prophets: I am not come to destroy but to fulfill. For verily I say unto you, Till heaven and earth pass, one jot or one tittle shall in no wise pass from the law, till all be fulfilled. Whosoever therefore shall break one of these least commandments and shall teach men so, he shall be called least in the kingdom of heaven...." (Matt. 5:17-19) and "it is easier for heaven and earth to pass, than one tittle of the law to fall" (Luke 16:17) and "The scribes and the Pharisees sit in Moses' seat: all therefore whatsoever they bid you observe, that observe and do" (Matt. 23:2-3) and (John 7:19, Mark 1:44)
versus
Paul--"Wherefore, my brethren, ye also are become dead to the law by the body of Christ" (Rom. 7:4) and "Christ hath redeemed us from the curse of the law" (Gal. 3:13) and "For sin shall not have dominion over you: for ye are not under the law, but under grace" (Rom. 6:14) and "But now we are delivered from the law, that being dead wherein we were held; that we should serve in newness of spirit, and not in the oldness of the letter" (Rom. 7:6) and (Rom. 10:4, 3:28, Gal. 3:23-25, 5:2-4, 18, 2:19, 21, 16, 4:10, Eph. 2:15, Col. 2:14, 16, Heb. 7:19, 1 Cor. 8:8 and many others).
Jesus said the law would stand till heaven and earth passed, while Paul said it need no longer be followed.
What oh what is a pew warmer to do?
Jesus is the fulfilment of everything God had for his people and this heaven and earth will pass away and Jesus is king of the New Heaven and the New Earth and he is lord also of the law.

Human life at the time of Noah was confined to the middle east and fertile crescent. The purpose of the flood was to kill mankind and it was a vast but localized flood. Only the animals indigenous to that part of the world were included on the ark.

If there was such a being as this alledged God of the Bible then we all are in serious trouble:

Deut. 21:18-21 ("If a man has a stubborn and rebellious son, who will not obey the voice of his father or the voice of his mother, and, though they chastise him, will not give heed to them, then his father and his mother shall take hold of him and bring him out to the elders of his city...and they shall say to the elders of his city,'This our son is stubborn and rebellious, he will not obey our voice; he is a glutton and a drunkard. Then all the men of the city shall stone him to death with stones; so you shall purge the evil from the midst").

I do not need one of St. Pauls "simple minded" [YOU] to tell me that. If I want to know that garbage I can read it for myself. Who told you that anyway, and why did you believe them? Why can't you see that you have no evidence that any of that apologetic rant is real or true? Someone told you and being "the simple-minded" you just believed it. HEARSAY!

Man and woman were both called Adam when they were created. This may have been a reference to Adams' first wife, Lilith who is not mentioned by name in the story.

Why do you endlessly lie about what the Bible teaches? You wrote: "earth will pass away...."

Eccles. 1:4, "One generation passeth away, and another generation cometh: but the earth abideth for ever."

Calling God a liar seems to be some kind of enjoyable hobby for you.

<quoted text>Sorry, son. Luke blows that out of the water.
"If any man come to me, and hate not his father, and mother, and wife, and children, and brethren, and sisters, yea, and his own life also, he cannot be my disciple." - Luke 14:26.
Anyone up for Duelling Contradictions? I LIKE that game!
Luke meant that you are not to put anyone above Jesus, if you are to be his disciple. If anyone trys to turn a Christian away from Jesus, we are not supposed to be like them, even if it causes them to be angry with us.

"There is forgiveness with you, that you may be feared". We also fear God because of impending punishment. "Whom the Lord loves, he corrects, even as a father the son in whom he delights" God loves the righteous who love her. The Messiah also fears the Lord. Isaiah 11:2.

<quoted text>Last night I was reading Rev. Chap 21. It is a really good chapter showing the faithful what they have to look forward to if they stay faithful to the end. Rev 2:10
If Christians cling to their idols til the end, they're not going to make it. It will come down to belief. "All who call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved". To do this you have to know who the Lord is. The end is after the death and before the resurrection of the Messiah. That is when the Book of Remembrance will be written, for those who "fear the Lord and think upon his name". It's also called the Book of the Living.

I cannot explain how God created everything other than going by Genesis 1 he spoke them into being, he employed The Word(the "being" who was known as Jesus Christ when he was manifested on earth). interesting thing is that there was light on earth before the sun was created and in Rev 21 there will be light in heaven and no need for the sun up there.(the presence of God is the light)

GOD: Gen. 6:17, "I do bring a flood of waters upon the earth, to destroy all flesh, wherein is the breath of life, from under heaven; and everything that is in the earth shall die."

GOD: Gen. 7:4, "...and every substance that I have made will I destroy from off the face of the earth."

Gee, the Bible says one thing, you say another, so who do we believe? Apparently you expect us to believe you, why?

AND! How would a flood destroy sea animals, such as whales, porpoises, sea snakes, dolphins, amphibians, and all animals entirely underwater?

The key word is "NEW" earth. Read his scripture post again. This current earth will pass away, not the new earth.

God does not approve of human sacrifice nor of torturing to death the animal to be sacrificed. When you take the Eucharist you're eating Jesus' body and drinking his blood. God also does not approve of cannibalism.

Scripture can NOT be trusted.

John 1:18 "No man hath seen God at any time;..."
Exodus 33:20, And he said, Thou canst not see my face: for there shall no man see me, and live.
John 6:46 "Not that any man hath seen the Father, save he which is ofGod, he hath seen the Father."
1 John 4:12 "No man hath seen God at any time. If we love one another, God dwelleth in us, and his love is perfected in us."

Gen. 32:30 "And Jacob called the name of the place Peniel: for I have seen God face to face, and my life is preserved."
