    The Bible is an amazing and rich book. I just have no reason to think it is the "inerrant and infallible Word of God." Do you?
    I think it is foolish to credit God as the author of the Bible but then not "blame" him for things found in it.
    Great chatting,
    Richard
    Maybe we'll learn someday of how 'inerrant' it is -- many of those are what I call 'stumbling blocks', designed by HIM to cause us to think and meditate on.
    I consider the Bible as an Instruction Manual, because we're in the devil's territory and God is showing us how to resist the sucker...
    The "god of this world" is the one who deserves the blame! He's just as active in Arizona and Florida as he is in Mayberry, but maybe Christians outnumber him? I dunno.

    Yeah, but then why believe there is a "HIM" at all? Why believe in a "devil?" Everyone has their own interpretation, why don't you choose one that is best?

    Toss out all the old ideas of a literal "devil" and heaven and helll and reinterpret everything as a guide book to universal love and cosmic consciousness.

    Why not?

    People!!!

    Get a clue! http://www.evolutionnews.org/2012/02...ins056371.html

    It is not about whether Christianity is true or false, or whether evolution is true or false!

    Richard Dawkins is on a "religious war" to make fools of Christians. That was the purpose of his "scientific survey". But he got trapped by his own words. So, for those of you who still don't "get it": Using Dawkin's own logic, he isn't very smart about evolution because he couldn't recite the title of his "bible".

    For the last time. This video is not about which belief system is true. Get a clue!

    OK Ram, You stirred me to post about Lot's wife, because of the diff between physical and figurative and our "Confounded LANGUAGE" Gen 11:7, which includes many types of figures of speech.

    We don't need Dawkins to "make fools of Christians." They are doing a fine job all by themselves.

    The "video" is not "about" anything because it is a tiny fragment of a larger conversation.

    Science is not a "belief system" like religions because science is based on verifiable facts whereas religion is just a bunch of unverifiable dogma. If you don't understand this, then you understand nothing of which you speak.

    Maybe if you tried to use your brain instead of whacking it silly with the palm of your hand you would understand that your comment is meaningless.

    If our language is confounded, then how do you know that you properly understand the story of Babel?

    That's easy -- I don't, but have faith that God knows what he's doing, and that he says things for a purpose. Have you noticed the many metaphors He uses to describe the Jews, the Saints, Jesus, Satan, etc.? The serpent in the Garden and the Lamb born 'to Rachel' are just tip of the iceberg.

    If your language is confounded, and you don't understand the Bible, why do you think it has anything to do with God?
