Who needs authority to assemble teachings in a written form? The word was already around and some was in writing, the NT canonization simply organized what was already there, the person or group who "ordered" it is a matter of record.

I would think that something so important as the "word of God" should have someone's authority...many claim that authority came from God. Those who organized it also had the discretion to include or exclude based on their own personal desires...or needs.

While a Christian...I never gave much thought to who divided it in to chapter and verse...placing commas and periods where they thought they should go. We all know that a misplaced comma can completely change the meaning.

Some verses will end before a sentence does...if one just reads a single verse and not the complete passage...once again you run the risk of changing the meaning.

Just saying...I think anyone who reads should be concerned about how that Bible ended up being presented as it has been. Can't recall the name but there has been a Bible released without chapters and verses in an attempt to take it back to a more like image of the original documents.

I read in one reference that it was divided as it has been for easier referencing and to make it easier to memorize Bible verses...at the risk of altering its original meaning.

So, does that mean you are finally ready to accept the Goddess Mother Nature and all that she gave birth to?
It's easy to think of the Earth as a mother, who the Greeks called Gaia.
Any gardener knows soil brings forth life - like a mother. It also feeds her children.

Well, where is the evidence? So far only assertions have been presented. So where's your evidence?

kait - an empahatic and categoric NO, NO AND NO!!!
i've said this all before so why do you continue to stereotype me and be bigoted against me & all of christianity???
Maybe it has to do with you falsely accusing all of us murdering a man 2000 years ago.

You are lunatic and a liar and no one in their right mind believes a God damned word you type.

The sad irony is that likely ... neither of us will get to see the other realize what is after life, because there is zero evidence that anything happens after death.
I have suspisions of an "existence" after death. It is nothing like religions claim though.

You're just not familiar with the history of your religion at all, eh?
You realize that many here know that you are the one lying, right?
there are many religions and have been many regimes throughout history. my faith is based on nothing les then Jesus' Blood and Righteousness.

are you familiar at all with the brutal history of your humankind? if so, why not run as fast as you can to the Savior? it ain't gonna go well for you if you don't....

The Christian brainwashing formula.

No thanks.

Get a Bible and read it carefully without anyone telling you what it means.

These words spake JESUS in the treasury, as he taught in THE TEMPLE: and no man laid hands on him; for his hour was not yet come. Then said JESUS again unto them, I go my way, and ye shall seek me, and shall DIE IN YOUR SINS: whither I GO, ye CANNOT come. Then said the JEWS, Will he kill himself? because he saith, Whither I go, ye cannot come. And he (Jesus) said unto them, YE are from BENEATH; I am from ABOVE: ye are of THIS WORLD; I am NOT of THIS WORLD. I said therefore unto you, that YE shall DIE IN YOUR SINS: for if YE BELIEVE NOT that I AM he, YE shall DIE IN YOUR SINS.(John 8:20-24)I believe this

Suspicion is okay. I have hope that something happens, but I'm not placing my bets on it. ;) It's only delusion when you say it's fact without evidence to support it.

No. I don't despise the idea of God either. I despise whiny little morons who think they know something about God.
