    Authenticity of the Bible, do you really want to know if the Bible is really Gods word?

    Many people who don't believe the Bible is Gods word think that it has been changed over thousands of years. That the original meaning has been lost to translation or each individual religion has their own bible. Could this be true? I would like for you to decide for yourselves, watch these short videos on U tube and draw your own conclusions. Tell us what you think.


    Check out Authenticity of the bible on U Tube by Josh McDowell and then tell us your opinion on the U tube spots. This only your opinion, and others opinions, so lets keep it civil please..

    WHO GIVES A TOSS IF YOU ARE TERRIFIED THAT YOU HAVE BEEN NAUGHTY PERSON AND ARE SCARED OF WHAT LIES AFTER DEATH THEN TAKE SOLACE IN THE RANTINGS OF SOME OLD CODGER USING A BURNT STICK FOR A PEN. FOR ME I HAVE MADE SOME SHOCKERS BUT I NOW TRY EVEN HARDER TO BE THE GUY IN THE WHITE HAT BUT I HAVE NOT ASKED ANYONE OR ANYTHING FOR FORGIVENESS. ALL I DO IS SAY TO THOSE THAT LISTEN " I DO NOT EXPECT ANYONE TO CONDONE WHAT I DID" WE DO WHAT WE FEEL IS RIGHT AT THE TIME AND WE ARE OFTEN WRONG BUT THAT IS THE WAY OF ALL MEN.

    P-lover, please stop your offensive yelling. We realize you do it to be annoying but it simple shows your intelligence level.

    Because Jesus said it was, and since He is God, He can't lie.

    Hi leeroy


    My 'son of God' theme seems to have disappeared.
    I guess the site organizers do not like polemics.
    That means religious controversy. It seems I have upset the Holy Joe's as well as the educated atheists
    What fun!


    So I think we have established that 'trinity' and 'god the son' are not expression found in scripture. Therefore people who think of God and his son in this way are in deep trouble, and I will give you Rev 22 v 18-19 for that. (I am starting to get comfortable with the ASV again. Haven't used it in years.)


    Now there is only One true God and only One Lord Jesus Christ, so by all means ask you question and i will be happy to give you the answer your own bible gives.


    Meanwhile If there is only one Shepard and flock. How do you account for something like 37,000 different religions calling themselves Christian all expecting to go to heaven when they die?
    I shall give you 1 Cor vs 12-13-14. Does Christ (the household) exist divided?

    Now try Rev 12 v 12 and you will see who is causing all the mischief.


    2 Corinthians 4v4 is also worth looking up.


    Finally if you should ever think of me as you enemy because I attack some of your cherished beliefs.
    Remember The law of the Christ requires you to Love your enemy.


    You do not know how many lives may be saved because you and I got together to hammer it out.


    (Proverbs 27:17) 17 By iron, iron itself is sharpened. So one man sharpens the face of another.

    leeroy

    We will have to probably talk about this on another question, I do know that Jesus said I and the father are one, and that when he answered the Pharisees He answered with I AM, but I haven't checked out those verses yet, but am looking forward to it.

    leeroy, what i think and know, is that the bible isn't completely word of god, because, firstly; jesus was given scriptures from god, rules, to do that and that, so it has been thousands of years, people CHANGE little by little the facts of those scriptures according to their liking, one bible translation to another, one writer to another, it has been CHANGED, remember, so i'm not saying the whole book is a fake, i'm saying that it isn't and you'll never know that it's hundred percent ACCURATE.

    Double H, look up a search on the authenticity of the Bible and you may be very surprised of how careful the scholars were that translated the Bible. I'll leave you a site to check out:

    Hey Leeroy :)
    I'll read them tonight when i have the chance and comment later on :)
    For what it is worth : Regarding a clarefication of Proverbs 27:17 "Iron sharpeneth iron; so a man sharpeneth the countenance of his friend."

    "The strength of the spiritualized word; TRUTH, uplifts and sharpens the understanding of a friend." Let them hear it who can.


    Rev. 1:16 John Baptist's vision: "out of His mouth went a two-edged sword: and His countenance was as the Sun Shineth in his strength."

    The word of his mouth was as of a two edged sword, having two edges, able to cut both ways, according to hearing and interpetation, positive or negative, Light or dark, uplifting or damnable (literal): His understanding shining above the darkness (ignorance) in the strength of Truth, which is ever Love. Let them hear it who can. Amen

    Can never be. 100's of books were written , 4 were accepted some 300yrs later and even these four were written by people who were not even present when Jesus was around.It's someone elses writings wrongly attributed as being Gods word.

    You just have to read Psalm 1 leeroy and you get it first hand not second.
    Then as you read Psalm 2 you will get an insight into the reason for deplorable world conditions.
    But I reckon you are working on this anyway.

    leeroy

    Haven't been in Psalms in a while, I'll re-read it now, thanks.

    leeroy

    Wow, there sure is power in that book. It takes me to the spiritual wickedness in high places verse.

    God is heard in ones heart; received in ones mind, if there is any book that guides one there or inward, then indeed the word heard within is ever True speaking and gifting His idea of Love and Peace. Only by this may one Know Him within, in spite of the Chaos. Your Joy will be full knowing His Presence within, in the realization of who you truly are.

    it's an interesting work of fiction
