So inform me, in a few paragraphs - and an adroit scholar like yourself should be up to the task - explain WHAT the Bible teaches. Go on.<quoted text>
See?,this is why you have no no understanding of what the Bible teaches.
You don't want to learn and instead you assume that you know and understand what the Bible says when you don't know,thus proceeding,like susanblange does on here alot to make your own version of it which does not fit with the meaning of scriptures.
Yes,Jesus spoke in parables and each parable can mean different to each individual.
However,I've been around this block too many times to distinguish what is meaningful and fruitful and then somebody on here making up a bunch of nonsense about it for attention and a giggle.
Sum it up. What are the basic concepts taught of the Bible?
I can do it, can you? I've read the thing a dozen times now, front to back each time...so I feel confident I can sum up the basic concepts. Consider it like the opening summary paragraphs of a thesis, or legal brief, or maybe what a High School student would call a book report.
Go on...lets here it...
