I understand it just fine.
That's why I reject it.
If you understood it, you would to.
This is why your religion fosters ignorance.
If you understood it! you wouldn't reject it..

<quoted text> Had you read very much of this thread, you would realize that our doubts were not about 'the churches'. Our doubts were about the Bible. Maybe you can start there if you truly want to understand why people leave Christianity. I don't think any of us blamed the churches, or God for our doubts. We saw incongruities in the churches we attended, but our main focus was on why we saw something in the Bible that other Christians didn't see, and why we didn't see what they saw in some instances. It was the unanswered questions that drove us to seek more knowledge. It didn't necessarily end up where we thought it would, prayed it would, or expected it would. We ended up not believing in mainline Christianity because of the Bible. It's really just that simple.
You have not been asked many things about your religion that you have posted. So if you were truly just being quiet until asked, you would have left long ago. I'm not buying into that either.
However, Christians are always welcome here. We see the worst side of Christianity with most of the Christians who come here and the very best side with a very few who come here.
And their words are here for the life of Topix.
Im sorry to ask something like this without goin back and reading every post to find my answer, but what exactly were those questions that were unanswered that drove you to seek more knowledge, Id really like to have something to base it on. I guess Im lazy. But very in the statement you made here.

And no, I really don't care if others believe or not.. I was stating that just maybe he was reading the bible to find something wrong instead of the good..
Yeah, some people do get caught up in the details and missing content of the Bible and miss the point, I did it myself once upon a time, but hey, each to their own right? Besides, you never know when the good might seep in, it did for me, now I just have to think about going to church at some point.....
Peace <3

Your problem is your hypocrisy, not your following Jesus.
Because you don't follow Jesus.
You only claim to.

If Crossan is right, the dogs devoured his corpse after he was crucified.

That'd be kind of a Charlie Sheen winning moment by most standards.

And you're not the only one.
But my preference is for a redaction.
I believe the majority position is, coming at the end, the final pages were lost -- separated from the rest of the text. Last I checked, the minority view was the gospel was intended to end at 16:8.
I disagree with both positions and side with Powell. But I admit we are in the super-minority.
I don't know if anyone will ever know for sure.

Just thought I would pull out a contemporary resource and see what they said. The Cambridge Companion to the Bible, Second Editio,n doesn't even mention any of the longer endings (3 isn't it?) It just ends that section on Mark like this:

"The theme of the hidden nature of the divine purpose is implied in the strange ending of Mark (16:8), where the women who have seen the young man at the tomb say nothing to anyone but are filled with astonishment, fear and trembling. Those reactions, however, are precisely the ones attributed to Daniel (Daniel 10:7-12) after God has granted him visions of the end-time and the throne of God. The very terms used here by Mark are the same as those found in one of the ancient Greek versions of Daniel..." - p.529

I did not know that.

That's what your religions wants you to believe.

But you prove here daily that you don't really believe it either.

And I love that part.
