Interesting you quoted a passage with is directly related to Zoroastrian philosophy e.g. the light and darkness.
It's a natural concept.

Myth is how humans express their understanding of the Perennial Philosophy which comes up time and time again across cultures.
Not necessarily, but I understand what you're referring to.

There are few tangible and verifiable facts in the Bible.
In what generation are you referring to, because many aspects of the bible have been proven factual.
WasteWater wrote:
Nomadic cultures often had a collaboration between Priests and Warriors. The Priests had special powers such as communication with Gods or spirits as well as healing skills. Warriors protected the Priests and relied upon them to bring victory to their battles. The Exodus account is one such story.
You're referring to a nation that became nomadic. Their ancestor was from Babylon, then moved to Egypt. Then, after only two generations, they returned to Egypt and remained for over four-hundred years.
WasteWater wrote:
Moses is the priest with supernatural powers while Aaron is the warrior.
Actually, Aaron was Moses' spokesman, considering that Moses had a speech impediment.
WasteWater wrote:
Eventually Aaron disappears from the accounts leaving Moses by himself as leader.
Actually, Aaron didn't disappear. Aaron died.

They have their fetish which they haul around from place to place called the Arch.
A "fetish?" Really? Is that what you would call a family-heirloom, too?

I suggest you look into Joseph Campbell. He explained all this very well. People tend to turn the Bible into an idol when they overlook the symbols contained in the mythology and the quest for a knowledge of the perennial philosophy of the God head.
I've never read his material, but I've discussed his work before. And I can understand what you mean as to your mention of the bible becoming an idol, but I can also understand why people treat the bible that way. And not everyone overlooks the symbolism. My question to is is this: Why would the Israelites incorporate a "God" in their mythology that didn't reflect themselves, as most other invented gods do? And who would think to try to place themselves at the apex of the hierarchy by recording every fault and punishment to befall their own nation?

Hi Henry:

I believe this church will be here until the return of the Lord. There will be all the different denominations still here when the Lord returns in His time. I do not look to the corporate church for truth I look only to the word as Jesus said the truth will set you free my word is truth, John 17:17, it is not what any church teaches that one should folow as their sole authority it is always what saith the Lord? We can also see as Jesus told us you will know them by their fruits, a good tree cannot bear bad fruit and a bad tree cannot bear good fruit, ye shall know them by their fruits. When we look at Gal. 5:22-23, concerning the fruits of the Holy Spirit we can see that is, those that are truly born of the word and the Spirit they will see who has the truth by their fruits, when a believer puts them to the test so to speak they will know. Thank you. Gary

What's your thoughts regarding what's written in Revelation?

Revelation 17:16
And the ten horns which thou sawest upon the beast, these shall hate the whore, and shall make her desolate and naked, and shall eat her flesh, and burn her with fire.

I guess I can safely assume, then, that you've decided to take my approach toward learning the bible. Kudos. But, I can't help but wonder...how do you know you're understanding what's written accurately and correctly? By what do you measure what you read up against? How do you know the conclusions, based on the interpretations you perceive, are more correct and accurate than that of Christendom's denominations?

I'm sorry, Gary, but I can't agree. I, personally, know people that are very knowledgeable of the bible and know the interpretation of it much better than a lot of Christendom's members. But, after examining the fruit of the Spirit, it becomes obvious that these people that have knowledge of what's written don't reflect the attributes of the Spirit. Therefore, I believe it can work both ways. We can have people that have knowledge of what's written while not reflecting the attributes of the Spirit, and people that have no knowledge of what's written, but still reflects the attributes of the Spirit. In conclusion, if it was a requirement that we reflect the attributes of the Spirit before we can acquire accurate knowledge of what's written, the devil would never appear as a minister of righteousness, nor would he have ministers that appear righteous, either.

Yes it is a natural concept based on man's relationship to his environment and other creatures.

The flood is impossible. There isn't enough water to cover even the smallest hill, let alone a Mt. Ararat at around 16,000'. Noah is impossible also. The Creation account is impossible. Why should I believe the Bible to be factual?

I doubt we know everything about the group of tribes contributing to the Hebrew Scripture.

No. Read the Bible again and you will find Aaron eventually in not mentioned, yet Moses is.

Yes, of course they invented a God in their own image. Isn't that what people do?

Thank you for agreeing about idolization of the Bible.

Joseph Campbell does a better job of tying these things together.

How about the mythology of the first city states?

Only the name has changed. Science agrees that a flood occurred. Only the scale remains a question.
WasteWater wrote:

Actually, science agrees with the creation account when it's interpreted correctly. The error that many and most make when interpreting Genesis 1 is that they forget that even before the "days" of creation, especially that of "light," the heavens and the earth already existed. This is said in the very first verse. When it's said that the sun, moon, and stars, were "created," and even after, it would seem, light was "created," this portion was explaining how the terrestrial bodies finally became visible from the earth's surface. Nothing, though, even suggests that light was created even before the sun.
WasteWater wrote:

Because archaeology has made many discoveries based on the bible records, including the existence of certain people. Only those that are obsessed with disproving the bible's accuracy remain in opposition and denial of these discoveries.

I agree. But, the reason is because Aaron died.

Numbers 20:28
And Moses stripped Aaron of his garments, and put them upon Eleazar his son; and Aaron died there in the top of the mount: and Moses and Eleazar came down from the mount.

Numbers 33:38
And Aaron the priest went up into mount Hor at the commandment of the LORD, and died there, in the fortieth year after the children of Israel were come out of the land of Egypt, in the first day of the fifth month.

Deuteronomy 10:16
...there Aaron died, and there he was buried; and Eleazar his son ministered in the priest's office in his stead.

I doesn't invalidate the Bible; it invalidates the literal Bible.

The Creation doesn't work because it has the earth being created first with is false. The solar system was created 4.5 billion years ago when a star blew up. The Biblical timeline is around 6,000 years which is equally false.

Mt. Ararat stood at 16,000' within the Biblical timeline. As I stated previously, if all the water in the world which includes ice and underground sources, the ocean levels would rise by around two meters. Hardly enough to cover even the smallest hill. Flooding occured in river basins. These were where the large city populations congregated and where the philosophies behind the Bible originated.

There are well over 15,000 animal species in the world. The Ark as Biblically described would be way too small. There would be over 35,000 lbs. of food and excrement per day. The myth is false.

These mythologies originated in the same area. So what? That does not prove the factual validity.

Hi Dr:

Thank you. I believe 1 Peter 4:17 is already in place that is, judgment in a very large way has already taken place in the corporate churches of our day it is not just singled out to one denomination but as a whole except for the true believers called the [elect of God] this is the true church, it is not in some building structrue or denomination it is any where, where the Holy Spirit indwells the believer this is the true church that worships God in Spirit and in truth, John 4:23.

The believer can know that the churches are under the judgment of God the abomination that makes desolate is in place now accoring to Matthew 24:15-18

The key word in those verses is [SEE] when you SEE the abomination that makes desolate standing in the holy place, the holy place is where the word of God was spoken faithfully where the Bible was the final authority that structures and determins what truth is. The believer can spiritual SEE the decay of the corporate church growing more appostate now more than ever, we can see spiritually the great falling away from the true gospel into a false gospel sad to say, 2 Tim. 4:1-6.

Dr. when I see [numbers] in the Bible I know we have to be very careful because many times it is not a literal number we can know this just by looking up all the numbers as the ten thousand of his sainst in Jude 14, is not a literal number but the number [10] has spiritual meaning as in [completless] of what is in view and that would be the [10 completeness of all the believers] as in, Rev. 5:11 speaking of believers as ten thousands times ten thousands and thousands of thousands. We see again the number [10] to a number that cannot be numbered so I am very careful when coming to looking at a literal number since the Bible is a spiritual book the word tells us we compare spiritual things with spiritual, 1 Cor. 2:13.

Dr. I also have found in my own life here speaking only about myself here as an example I no longer have these long debates as I used to because I could see in most cases it was all built on my pride [I am right and your wrong] this is the wrong spirit to present truth we never see Jesus debating His word do we? No! We just see Him faithfully declaring His word in the power of the fruit of the Spirit of God which is done in love, meekness, longsuffering, gentleness,, faith, joy, peace, goodness, kindness and the like as every true believer should share accoring to Gal. 5:22-23. Jesus tells us you will know them by their fruits a good tree cannot bear forth bad frut and a bad tree good fruit you shall know them by their fruits. I never seen anyone won to the Lord by any debates all it does is cause bitterness, slander, hate, backbitting, and the like, I just never seen much good come from it in my own life. Thank you. Gary. 1 John 3:13-15

Hi Lee:

Very good! I can agree with much of what you have said here below and you make some very good points concerning the fruit of the spirit. You have also raised some very good questions let me see if I can give some input here concerning your great points.

How can we know that one has arrived at truth?

This is probably the most important question that has been raised.

Sometime we can believe we have arived at truth but when the conclusion does not harmonize with everything in the word then we have to make sure one can explain every point concerning his conclusion that he has arrived at is truth. One way we can know is, when we can exaplin every verse that may counterdict what his conclusion he has arrived at.

Take for example, the date of the return of the Lord. There are some verses that would seem to show that we can know time and judgemt according to Ecc. 8:5, Rev. 10:5-7, and many more. However, there are verses that would counterdict this conclusion in not knowing the very day of the return of the Lord. Matthew 24:36, Mark 13:32, Zech. 14:7, these verses would show we cannot know the very day and it is true so we have to go over and allow God to correct the one who is in error concerning this conclusion we always should allow for the word to intrust us, teach us, reprove us, according to, 2 Tim. 3:16, if we do not either God is withholding truth from us or it is our pride God is the only one that can reveal truth by His Spirit and His word this is why we must be born of the word and the Spirit because the true worshipers will worship God in Spirit and in truth, John 4:23.

Lee, I am not sure if I understood your last statement correctly here when you said that the devil would never appear as a minister of righteousness. Lee, how do understand verses like these?

"For such are false apostles, deceitful workers, transforming themselves into apostles of Christ. And no marvel; for Satan himself is transformed into an angel of light. Therefore it is no great thing if his MINISTERS also be transformed as the MINISTERS OF RIGHTEOUSNESS; whose end shall be according to their works." 2 Cor. 11:13-15

Here we see this is just the case Satan comes very subtle in fact so subtle the word tells us IF it were possible he would decieve the very elect, Matthew 24:24. So we see it is only God the Holy Spirit who can give one true repentance to the acknowledging of the truth. If not, the word tells us if God does not they will be taken captive by Satan at his will. 2 Tim. 2:25-26. Thank you. Gary

Hi Lee:

I like to just touch on your other point here when you said there are many people that know a great deal of the word and still no fruit.

Your right I do not disagree with this conclusion at all in fact, I would give examples, like the scribes and pharisses of Jesus day they also knew a great deal of the word of God in their day in fact the word tells us that they have a great zeal of God but not accoding to knowledge. You see they became righteous by their own works, they even added more to the laws of God. They even knew fluently the Greek and Hebrew and some Aramaic and yet they were as blind, dead, drunk, spiritually speaking these are words God gives for those who claim to know much concerning the word and yet are under a very strong delusion. One mark of a false teacher is, he will not take correction when shown by the word as the word declares this is what the word should do to every true believer that is, to make correction since none of us has the full truth on everything in the word the word tells us that we all only know in part and we declare in part, 1 Cor. 13:8-13.

It is the pride of man who thinks he has arrived at full truth this should be a dead give away the scribes thought they have arrived at full truth, it is also the pride of man when shown by the word he is wrong on the issue and does not yeild to the word of God. Now one can be sincere but wrong and if he is a true believer I believe in time God will correct him He can use the word to correct him or He may cause some chastisment to assist him to look again God chastens every true child He loves if not your not His child the word tells us that those are [bastards] this is the KJV of this word meaning they are not the true child of God. This is why God tells us in, Psam 51, a true picture of salvation is a broken and a contrite heart God will not refuse this spirit is called the poor in spirit, Matthew 5. These are those that are truly blessed. Again, thank you for your input. Gary 1 John 3:13-15

<quoted text>I'm sorry, Gary, but I can't agree. I, personally, know people that are very knowledgeable of the bible and know the interpretation of it much better than a lot of Christendom's members. But, after examining the fruit of the Spirit, it becomes obvious that these people that have knowledge of what's written don't reflect the attributes of the Spirit. Therefore, I believe it can work both ways. We can have people that have knowledge of what's written while not reflecting the attributes of the Spirit, and people that have no knowledge of what's written, but still reflects the attributes of the Spirit. In conclusion, if it was a requirement that we reflect the attributes of the Spirit before we can acquire accurate knowledge of what's written, the devil would never appear as a minister of righteousness, nor would he have ministers that appear righteous, either.

I also step down from listenign earthly spiritual errors and their leaders,any long debates causing confussion,or any doctrines contradict Bible,
you are right that numbers mostly are spiritual like 1000 years is Jesus Rulership perfection,not 1000 literal years kingship ruler Jesus From litearal Jerusalem 1000 years-THIS IS PLAIN LIES OF KING 8-GLOBALISTS ZIONISTIC MOVEMENT STOLEN THIS NUMBERE AND FULL MANKIND THAT THEY ARE DESTINED BY GOD TO BE SUPERVISORS OF THIS EARTH DURING 1000 YEARS.
I agree with people like you,and I assume you are the one of single true anoinnted believers not requiring to accept others teachings,or teach anyone.
GODS HOLY SPIRIT ONLY LEAD US THROUGH THIS WILDERNIS AS PILGRIMS AND NOT INHABITANTS OF THIS EARTH- OUR COUNTRY IS ETERNAL HEAVENLY COUNTRY PSALM 107;3-14
I am from my nature a little bit harsh,but my heart always cry for forgiveness of my transgressions and forgivenes if I hurted anyone?
I assume you as my spiritual brother in the Lord soon entering gates of New Spiritual Jerusalem to Join Bride Table with our beloved Lord Jesus Christ

The Bible contradicts itself numerous times. Who cares? The Bible is crap.

I doesn't invalidate the Bible; it invalidates the literal Bible.
Taking a wild guess at your meaning, I'll respond by saying that most know that not all the bible is to be interpreted literally.
WasteWater wrote:
The Creation doesn't work because it has the earth being created first with is false.
Incorrect. Genesis 1:1 says, "In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth."
WasteWater wrote:
The solar system was created 4.5 billion years ago when a star blew up.
That's only one theory of many-- key-word being "theory." The newest theory is that there was never a beginning to the universe, at all. And where did that one star in such a vast space come from?
WasteWater wrote:
The Biblical timeline is around 6,000 years which is equally false.
Incorrect, again. Genesis 1:1-2 says, "In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth. And the earth was without form, and void; and darkness was upon the face of the deep. And the Spirit of God moved upon the face of the waters." So-called "scholars" and "theologians" apply a date and timeline to the creation account. But, in actuality, there's nothing that indicates how much time passed between Genesis 1:1 and Genesis 1:2. Realists accept that no one should insert any specific amount of time between these two verses.
WasteWater wrote:
Mt. Ararat stood at 16,000' within the Biblical timeline.
And how would anyone know that, including you?
WasteWater wrote:
As I stated previously, if all the water in the world which includes ice and underground sources, the ocean levels would rise by around two meters. Hardly enough to cover even the smallest hill. Flooding occured in river basins. These were where the large city populations congregated and where the philosophies behind the Bible originated.
Well, you don't believe in "God," so I can understand how such a flood would seem impossible to you. I don't think that anything I share with you will be accepted as a reasonable explanation, so...

There are well over 15,000 animal species in the world. The Ark as Biblically described would be way too small. There would be over 35,000 lbs. of food and excrement per day. The myth is false.
Incorrect. All that was needed was the parents. For example, if it's true that all canines derive from the wolf, then only a male and female wolf would have been necessary to replenish the earth, again, with dogs. It's the same with cattle, too.
WastedWater wrote:
These mythologies originated in the same area. So what? That does not prove the factual validity.
Actually, it does. It proves that the events must have taken place in order for so many cultures, from so many places on the earth, from such far distances away from one another, to feel compelled to share the same accounts. The difference between all these accounts and the bible is that the bible mentions these lists with people that are included in literal genealogies, and actual days and months. Most would agree that such detail would be beyond overkill for anyone just trying to teach a moral lesson.
