If one reads the Bible to justify their beliefs they can make it say anything they want.
IMHO, only when you read it without prior assumptions can you derive a few possible interpretations no of which are any better than any other.
if one reads anything they can justify their beliefs based on anything they wish.

you can't read anything without prior bias; otherwise you would have no experiential knowledge of any sort; which would include the ability to read.

it's not asking you to suspend your beliefs, it's asking you to question your beliefs. the whole things is about mind & belief, and finally how it distorts the view point.

STOP THAT. You cannot expect consistency when you mix Divine revelation with myth.
And you get to choose what is myth qand revelation.

How convenient.

Hi Wiggley :) thank you, thanks to my Boy Scout hubby, I've been prepared since the last 2. Too bad he's not here to borrow a genny from base... He's in sunny Darwin laughing!
Hopefully he's laughing knowing you are safe so he can relax.

Take care.

"Drachenstein" is from a Germanic myth. Killed by Hurnan.
its a concept that runs all through out ancient mythologies, world wide.

a serpent guarding the water of life.

Yeah, hopefully, lol. It's no surprise to anyone our boys are so cheeky. I have a mate in Perth who decided that it would cheer me up if he posted pics of camping on the beach, on FB last night. I gotta get more female friends. Insensitive bums.

Yep, the folowing verses are clear as mud. LOL
Esp. the ending:
So He said to them,“Wherever the body is, there the eagles will be gathered together.”
Birds picking his bones clean?.. which based on archeology was the defleshing method of some Jewish groups of the time...in which case there would be no tomb or 'dressing' used which presents another problem for Chrisitans to deal with. <smile>
such dead things must be.

once the idea is understood, words are no longer necessary.

it's a dumb parrot puzzle and until the birds understands they are simply repeating the words.

it's basic tautology.

spiritual realization has nothing to do with physical constructs of babeling towers. all such things are to be struck down

Revelation 20:9
And they went up on the breadth of the earth, and compassed the camp of the saints about, and the beloved city: and fire came down from God out of heaven, and devoured them.

<quoted text> Atheism is the enemy of truth and humanity. Atheism never subjects itself to the critical evaluation it imposes on others. Most, if not all criminal acts are atheistic in their thinking absent severe mental illnesses. Be they crimes against individuals or humanity or nature. Why? Because atheism assumes there is no accountability to God if they escape human justice. Atheism sets precident for mass murder and anarchy, to name a few. Atheism sets precident for legal abortion and a host of other societal dysfunction. Prove it wrong.
Christianity is the enemy of truth and humanity. Christianity never subjects itself to the critical evaluation it imposes on others. Christianity assumes there is no accountability to humanity if they only believe in a dead man rising. The history of Christianity is replete with precedent for mass murder and anarchy, to name a few, as they owe no allegiance to this life or the people. Prove it wrong.

Dusty, I was prepared to believe that you might actually have been trying to be nice last week
I was wrong.
You're a nasty, vicious, ugly, mean-spirited disgrace, not just to your sex, but to your species.
It's just the liquor talking, so to speak.

Someone should start a Christaholics Anonymous chapter.
