    God has given us so much evidence to believe it is no wonder no one will have an excuse.

    SORRY IM NOT AN ATHEIST(IF I WERE AN ATHEIST ID BE SORRY ALL TO SOON) JUST VISITED THAT SITE POWERFLLL STUFF.MORE PROOF TO A NON BELEIVING WORLD! IF PEOPLE THINK THE BIBLE WAS WRITTEN BY MEN NOT THE INSPIRED WORD OF GOD,THEY WOULD ALSO BELEIVE THAT AN INK FACTORY AND A PAPER FACTORY SIMITAINIOUSLY BLEW UP TOGETHER AND CREATED THE LIBARY OF CONGRESS1

    I agree the BIBLE is a UNIQUE book!

    Randy good one and so true. Through the Bible God can show and teach us so very very much if we listen .....


    Thanks.......Darci

    Over 100's of years people have tried to destroy the Bible. It is still the most sold book. Unique? Yes it is. Gods Word cannot be destroyed.
    The uniqueness of the Bible reveals the Word of God, written by men, but, men got the inspiration of the Scriptures that came from God.

    This is the part I though was most interesting:


    1.


      I challenged him to take just 10 of the authors, all from one walk of life, one generation, one place, one time, one mood, one continent, one language and just one controversial subject (the Bible speaks on hundreds with harmony and agreement).

    Then I asked him: "Would they (the authors) agree?" He paused and then replied, "No!" "What would you have?" I retorted. Immediately he said, "A conglomeration."

    Two days later he committed his life to Christ (the theme of the Bible).

    Why all this? Very simple! Any person sincerely seeking truth would at least consider a book with the above unique qualifications.

    Thanks for the link interesting stuff, t.u.2u

    Yes that was a great post also, glad you saw that.

    PROOF POSITIVE

    leeroy, I see you how deep you were into the scriptures...you went over the line :-)
    leeroy

    Weird it's hard to read that comment, sorry for crossing the line, lol.
    IamPamela313

    It's all good...I give you a pass :-)

    God sent His Son Jesus. He walked this Earth and showed nothing but love. He went to the cross for all. Even those who nailed Him to the cross was loved by Him. 'Father forgive them, they no not what they do'. Such love. Show us the hate in Him.


    The hate is not from the Bible. If hate comes through it comes from the sinful nature of man. I know we all like to make a point on both sides but There is so much anger towards the Bible. If the non belivers on here dont believe the Bible then give the proof that it is false.

    The Bible is a unique book,I also believe that it a library of books of the past,present and future,if you haven't read IT.I suggest you take the time to meditate on it,you might take a whole new look at life,there is more to life than meet the eye.this book the Bible will open your eye,so you can see the past,present,future.
    It's God amazing!

    Indeed it is a collection of many and varied teachings (The very meaning of the word "Bible") inspired and handed down by the Higher Mind of God. It was given through spiritually perfected men, as a guide to the Inward journey, that we might discover and know True Love Consciousness, the Christ or Christos. This is God mortalized in the understanding, in the world of men. Glory be it;)

    OK, so the Bible is unique. So what, does that mean it is always correct in what is written in it?

    Headless Man

    No other book compares, it's inspired by God.
    Yes 100% correct.
    nomdeplume

    Not quite as good as the Koran, Randy, that is the actual word of God as given to Mohammed, so it must be better than 'The Book' as they call it.
    Headless Man

    Then please read the link at:
    http://www.akaqa.com/question/q19191816557-Do-you-believe-bible-prophecies-have-come-true

    And tell me how so many prophecies could come true and the bible be wrong.
    How many prophecies has the Koran made that come true?

    "I don't know how to deal with someone with so much troubles" ~ Randy You do not know how to deal with me because you choose to see me as troubled. You created that falsehood in your own mind to explain why I do not believe in this instrument of death, hate and bigotry. I will never conform to the idea that God is a vengeful God and would shun or exile out of his kingdom anyone who does not accept Jesus as their savior. I am not troubled because I have not been blinded by the false words in the bible that created a false god so as to take attention away from the real God. The God of love and mercy. The IT that just is, that is only love WITHOUT conditions. No demands to accept, it simply loves for that's all it can do. Love is all it is.

    Where did all the information regards who wrote the bible and their occupations come from.


    Blind faith and belief, if it is in the bible who wrote it?


    What evidence is there that the entrys are correct?


    You mention the Univesity of Egypt, I don`t believ Egypt had a university in Moses` time. Do you?


    Let`s agree to disagree, no one will rver convince Christian bigots that they are living in hope without any evidence the book they follow has any substance except, I hear from a man who told by a friend who heard it from blah blah.


    I agree the bible has some extremely good guide lines for life but the word of some supreme being, can`t come at that one.


    If religions are so wonderful why do millions of people suffer whilst millions of dollars is spent on building to some unproven diety.


    The proof that people are starving is well documented, the need to spend millions on flashy buildings is not my idea of a loving god.


     Show me where it is written 'Lord God said go thee and build massive temples to my glory whilst you allow millions to starve and die, so said the Lord"

    Whom do you credit for you living not just existing like a pebble on a beach?
    Headless Man

    The info. is all part of history.
    Universities of Egypt were not what you may think of as a University, but just a learning center.
    However you made some good points Jesus while here on earth set an example for us and he met with people in homes as well as churches.
    It's necessary to have buildings that can handle large numbers of people and have room to do other ministries, but as you stated some go way overboard for show and comfort for a few and not for the mass.
    But I think you haft to confess the church as a whole has done more for the poor than anyone, my church just delivered fruit baskets and cookies to the older people from our little church.
    We give to the needy of our community and I hope we can do more, when someone is needy traveling through we help.

    You need to learn more about the Bible before you find fault.
    If you are ever in real need go to a church and ask, I'll bet you will get some help.

    Randy.\, in my youth I was a avid attender of church and bible study.
    It was this that led me to my current non believing.
    No one could then or since told me anything to change my mind, "You must trust God" Believe in Him all this without any evidence to prove the claims except controversal stories.
    Where is the "info is all part of history" written outside the bible.
    Look Randy do not get me wrong I totaly agree with your caring attitude and I commend you for that. My problem is believing in some diety that allows people to on one hand "Glorify his name" whilst others of his so called creation suffer.
    You say your church helps the elderly of the congregation, what about those who are not of your faith?
    I believe mankind has used and will continue to use the so called god to control the human race until like the many ancient religions it is replaced with another.
    I feel this is true of all religions today, yesterday and tomorrow, well intentioned but like communism it doesn`t work long term.
