...and yet it was.*********
Clay...were it me...I would leave in writing MY WORDS...so that one could see/know exactly what I wished them to know. I would not leave such an important matter to men who may distort them.
Why do you believe men?
This would assure me that IF ANYONE distorted my words, honest people could read THEM and see what "I" had to say.
*looks around for honest people*
Hmmmm.....we have a conundrum.
If I could then leave my spirit to guide the readers, I could be confident that 'those who had my spirit' would understand my words with his help.
You don't believe in the Spirit [Self]- remember?
Is this like you distorting "God's Word" to your own liking?And I would know that those who distorted my words obviously did not have my spirit.
Yes.Is the Bible distorted?
Yes.Has it been mis-interpreted?
Yes.You think that GOD can't do better than that?
The Bible has stood for centuries.
Not really - it has changed its meaning over many centuries.
It has brought peace, redemption, healing, prosperity (and everything else we need), and remains the best selling book ever. EVEN IF THERE WERE NO GOD, that Book is the greatest material ever given to man.
"best-selling book" - profit off of Jesus.
- Only in America can you do this.
- The Bible also has caused wars and murder, but also condones rape, hatred and slavery.
- Maybe you decided to skip over those passages because they didn't sit well with you?
You don't know "God" or what "He" can or can't do, so please stop lying to otehrs that you do.But of course, we KNOW that GOD IS, and HIS WORD LIVES FOREVER.
The Bible is our anchor.
For the feeble-minded, yes, because they don't know how to take responsibility for their actions or admit they are dishonest. Like you.
Citation please.The Holy Spirit does abide with us forever.
But there are evil spirits that would whisper doubt and fear, etc. to us.
And no doubt - you have some proof to support this, right?When this occurs the Holy Spirit WILL BRING TO OUR REMEMBRANCE those things that Jesus taught...and the Holy Spirit WILL AGREE with "IT IS WRITTEN".
They did - you lose.No man can minister to us with such power. "I am not ashamed of the gospel, for IT is the POWER OF GOD unto salvation.
