WRONG! Satan is filling your head with lies & delusion.<quoted text>
Your post comes down to three things:
1) There are prophecies in the Bible.
2) The Bible mentions historical figures which are referenced elsewhere
3) The Bible refers to real places and real events.
Biblical prophecies can be divided into the follow categories:
- Written about after the fact
- Acted out by people with knowledge of the prophecy
- Non-specific enough to mean anything
You can't have a book that contains both the prophecy and the fulfillment of the prophecy within it's history and expect us to take it seriously. The Harry Potter series contains a lot of prophecies that are fulfilled within the series. Greek Mythology is filled with prophecies which are fulfilled within the mythology. That doesn't mean that the stories as described are real.
People with fore knowledge of a prophecy can act out a prophecy without it being prophetic. If I made a prophecy that someone would climb to the top of the great pyramid and scream "Blue penguin!", it would not be prophetic if someone READ that and then went and did it. Most of the prophecies which get fulfilled in the New Testament but were laid down in the Old Testament fit this category.
Prophecies must be extremely specific to be considered valid. "A man will come carrying a burden. He will labor and people will be aware of him." That's NOT a good prophecy. That could apply to HALF the world population. Flowery language, or "when the prophecy says this it means that" are disqualifiers.
Yes the Bible mentions people and places IN THE LOCATION AND TIME PERIOD in which the Bible was written. Harry Potter mentions London. The Iliad mentions Troy.
If the Bible mentioned the civilizations of N and S America despite the fact that the authors could not possibly have known about them, THEN you would have something.
People writing about people they know and places where they live is not evidence that they are divinely inspired. It's evidence that they live in that place and witnessed events that took place.
In fact, the Iliad is a BETTER example than the Bible. For centuries people believed the Iliad was pure fiction and that Troy never existed. There was never a time in which people didn't believe the Middle East existed.
Since the Iliad references a city which was unknown to modern people until we went out and found it, does that mean that the Iliad is 100% true? If so, then the Greek Gods are real.
If not, then your argument about the Bible is invalidated.
Until you ask God for 'Wisdom and Insight' you are never going to know the truth... The road to hell is wide, the road to 'heaven' is narrow. You absolutely have no idea of what you speak.
