It is accepted as myth by a good number of Christian denominations, and also the circumstances, events, and actual reporting on that story would have been 100% impossible.
If "christians" don't believe in the begining of the bible, then where does there belief begin??

It begins with the fact they were programmed to believe that they should believe everything without question or go to hell. But specific to what you asked, a Christian is supposedly a follower of Christ.
Who was a follower of the OT.

This would be a good time to review a recent turn of events on this thread.
NoStress asked where her Christian views would be welcome. They're welcome here for the purpose just delineated.
But obviously, that's not what she meant. She wanted to know where her Christian opinions would be embraced without critique or dissent.
I answered that she would need to confine herself to protected environments like church and home if she wanted that, which is where Hick-up became offended and accused me of telling the Christians that they had no right to be here. I didn't recognize that he was referring to the comment I actually made, said that I had not said that, and was immediately called a liar.
This has been a recurring experience during my time here on this, my first predominantly Christian thread.
That christians can't tolerate criticism is evidence that their belief is weak. That they don't really know what they claim to know.

It's the ones who can actually discuss their beliefs alongside our disbelief and do it with civility that I admire.

It's too bad that they are so rare.

.. have you ever heard of the illusion of control by proxy ??..

.. it's an attempt to control a certain outcome by forfeiting direct control and responsibility to something or someone ..

.. a gambler forfeits responsibility for a bet to Lady Luck, you forfeit it to God. Ultimately, it's all the same - you believe you have control of the outcome. You don't ..

Yep...I knew that if I reminded everyone to think of LL...you'd show Mikey.
YOU...are my favorite RERUN!
It is nice to know that there are some things in life that never change...you have brightened my day since you are living proof of that.
I also appreciate the fact that your posts never change...I would hate to have to read them and think about a new idea...new thoughts...
I can just see your name over to the left... <----...and not eve have to read them...I already know what they say.
For that I thank you. It allows me to get straight to the "entertainment" and not have to pause for a description of the current show.
Have a great Saturday Mike...
Thanks be to you!

No doubt this is an entertainment site,...to actually help someone would be done elsewhere.

Well, it seems that the gays and lesbians got what they want. God Who created a man and a women to be married, allowed it to happen. Judgement has Come! The gays and lesbian really don't care about what God has to say. They don't reverence a Holy and Righteous God....A God Who says this lifestyle is an ABOMINATION IN HIS SIGHT!
Remember one thing, Cuomo will regret this decision! God will NEVER sanction or bless a same sex matrimony. The one who will sanction same sex marriages is Satan himself. Satan has become the gays and lesbians god.....The gays and lesbians is only bringing a CURSE UPON THEMSELVES. God will NOT BE MOCKED!

Now you all can get married, have children....but you all will reap the CONSEQUENCES OF YOUR WICKEDNESS.

The day Coumo signed that law....the earth became DARKER!

<quoted text> All of that of course is your assessment coming from a practically mindless brain set on the subject, and while in another post yesterday you eluded to yourself as worthless ( YOUR own assessment of self, not mine ) you now actually elevate yourself on a level of inportance that are not due to anyone save God, when you challenge me to "prove it" to you, unh unh..........not necesary to prove anything top YOU, and your belief or lack thereof in my sincerity is not a requirement for God's Blessings and workings in my life.
Thanks buddy

For the sake of argument let us set-aside the existence of a GOD.

Your inability to show you have a relationship with a GOD, speaks volume to your mental stability.

You took the time to post to me, shows some worth even if it is a punch in the nose.

You're like a "LP" record stuck in a groove.

Check this one out buddy!

You claim to have a wonderful life as a result of believing in a GOD, however, the best you can do with that wonder, is come on an entertainment site.

Perhaps you don't have what you claim to have, the mind has the ability to trick it's owner...In case of an emergency,"break" the glass....In other words, "save" yourself.

Are you proud of this, too? Your idea of freedom sounds like you've given up on running your own life. I don't identify with being a sheep or being led except in trivial ways and limited contexts, such as being on a team with a coach, or while in training or in the military.

People who need a guru or a keeper seem incomplete to me.

I have been experiencing a lot of guilt because when my children were young I failed to have them stoned to death according to God's command in Deuteronomy 21:18 If a man have a stubborn and rebellious son, which will not obey the voice of his father, or the voice of his mother, and that, when they have chastened him, will not hearken unto them:
21:19 Then shall his father and his mother lay hold on him, and bring him out unto the elders of his city, and unto the gate of his place;
21:20 And they shall say unto 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.
21:21 And all the men of his city shall stone him with stones, that he die: so shalt thou put evil away from among you; and all Israel shall hear, and fear.
I guess I only screwed up on my son, because my daughter was not included in that command. I let him live and now he has 4 sons of his own, and is a doctor who is likely helping to keep alive many stubborn young men who should be stoned. How will I ever live with myself for such a sin?

NOTES ON JOB: "The ancient folktale of a patient Job (1.1-2.13; 42.7-17; Jas. 5.11) circulated orally among oriental sages in the second millennium B.C. and was probably written down in Hebrew at the time of David and Solomon or a century later (about 1000-800 B.C.)." - Bruce M. Metzger
"P.H.D from Princeton Theological Seminary. He stayed at Princeton as a Teaching Fellow in New Testament Greek. On April 11, 1939, he was ordained in the Presbyterian Church in the U.S.A.[1] which after mergers is now known as the Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.). In 1940, he earned his M.A. from Princeton University and became an Instructor in New Testament. Two years later, he earned his Ph.D.("Studies in a Greek Gospel Lectionary (Greg. 303)"), also from Princeton." http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bruce_M._Metzger
Metzger became widely seen as an 'Apostate" by Christianity in later life. He simply mentioned and told what essentially all theologians are aware of, but rarely mention.
They have to make a living, too. Nothing worse than putting yourself out of work.
"Belonging to "Israel's FICTION, rather than to its history, and should be read among its tales and stories"; the book of Job is "religious FICTION" - How to read the bible, 1946, Edgar J. Goodspeed
"Edgar J. Goodspeed was born in Quincy, Illinois. He graduated from Denison University (where he also received a doctorate in Divinity, 1928) and the University of Chicago (Ph.D. 1898)."
The bible is full of such "borrowings" or adaptations of older myth and legend from previous cultures. Sometimes, just modified passages or verses here and there, and at other times, almost an entire book.
Take the book of Daniel, for instance.
Except for being altered and manipulated heavily to fit within Judaic mythology and being "historicized". The book of "Daniel" is taken in large part, if not entirely from earlier Ugarit mythology. Dan'lil in Ugarit, if I recall correctly. It can be found. You just have to look for the information. Information that a large majority of theologians are aware of.
But, rarely revealed or mentioned.
Exactly. Even Jews admit Job is allegorical fiction.
Another case of Christianity not understanding the books they stole from the Jews.
