Then you aren't a "Christian" - because that specific label applies to those who only believe in what is written in the Bible.<quoted text>
Why do you believe less than six of the Original Apostles and not all 13?
I never said I did....
If true, then everything I had stated up and to this post, I end with - welcome to my world - a world without the confines of religious bigotry or hatred.
If not, then why is there so many of his letters in the Bible, and very few texts/teachings attributed to Jesus?<quoted text>
Why do you think "Paul" was more enlightened than Jesus, even when he himself stated that some of his letters were forged? I ask because the many Pauline books in the Bible, outnumber the teachings of Jesus greatly.
I don't think Paul was "more" enlightened. Paul was an evangelist in the Roman Empire. I suspect there are more of his writings are around because he had a long career in the Roman Empires major trading areas....
I can see you stopped short of saying "as dictated (or something similar) by "God", and veered a little off-course - the men who wrote the Bible did not use 'electrons'.<quoted text>
Can you honestly state that men wrote the Bible, using an ideology that they created within their own minds?
Men used pen and ink to write the Bible, now they sometimes use electrons....The other part of the question I don't understand....
In other words, you don't beleive the Bible is the word of "God".
Neither do I. We do agree on this point.
Can you honestly say the men changed teh Bible to fit their own theology?
I think men try to alter the meaning of the Bible, and the writings contained therein....
No, they succeeded.
I'm actually surprised by your response.<quoted text>
Can you honestly say that Mark 16:9-20 was added later?
I know nothing about this....
As intellectual as your responses have been, I would've thought you did.
It is a good lesson on "how the Bible was changed".
Thanks for responding.
