    Translation

    Too many translation discrepancies - learn Greek and try reading the Septuagint  also, too many bored monks also, the Bible is written in metaphors, similes, and parables with very little meant to be taken literally - most ancient text was originally written in poetic...

    God Is Perfect?

    If God is perfect, or supposedly perfect, and is an omniscient God, then why would he create the human race which is apparently not perfect because we're capable of "sin". Thus, wouldn't this make God imperfect? If someone tries to argue that we were...

    What Greater Love

    "What greater love , but to save his children from brimstone and fire." You've probably heard this before from the believers. They refer, of course, to the FIRE HE CREATED! This "love" can only be driven by deranged, megalomaniacal sadism. Imagine if a...

    God Sacrificed Himself...

    God sacrificed himself, to himself, to appease himself, to change a rule that he made in the first place.  So he won't have to roast us alive, his beloved creation, for ever and ever.  He loves us so much, we cannot even comprehend, but if we don't love him back, he...

    Early Explanations

      Let me tell you what the Bible really is. It's a series of books written in the middle east (around Israel). They were written by people who lived in small huts, thought the earth was flat, that we were the center of the universe, and that tried to explain the things that...

    I've Read and Tried to ...

    I've read and tried to read the Bible. It is most confusing - no matter how slow I read and re-read - and contradictory as well. I'm sure, somewhere, there is a Bible that is written in plain English, but I don't have it. Plus, sometimes I'm not convinced that the guys who were...

    It can be, The Ten Commandments Tells

    if things that as people we should not do. In Ecclesiastes 3: 1-8 there is a passage that (in my opinion) tells that there can be exceptions to the rules. Example; Stealing is wrong, Ex 20:15 "thou shalt not steal." If a homeless person goes into a store under the pretense...

    Some fake Bible scattered everywhere to confuse

    and blind peoples belief. The real gospel will be given to you by the Holy Spirit if you deeply believe and seeking for it. Everything in the Bible is happening now little by little.

    Wrote By God But Sometimes Used To Do Evil

    How come that a book  wrote by God is used to do evil.  How could you turn a book of love into a book of hate? How could you believe in those who say they were "chosen" by God and the only thing that comes out of their mouths is hate?  Please note that this story is not about...

    I Love To Read The Story Of Lazarus............................i

    I am always amazed when I read the story of Lazarus in the bible. Before Jesus brought him back from the dead- He wept. He felt the pain and the sorrow of illness, suffering, and dying. Sometimes I think people see God as gleefully playing with us as we were puppets, putting us...

    The Bible Sucks (as a Guide to Salvation)

    "God is not the author of confusion." Corinthians 14:33  OK, then what the hell is the Bible about?   Should we kill? Exodus 20:13 "Thou shalt not kill." Leviticus 24:17 "And he that killeth any man shall surely be put to...

    Bible Quotas (ok, I'm From Boston)

    A Christian asks "should I date someone who doesn't believe in God?" A Bible quoter responds: Corinthians 6:14 says "Be ye not unequally yoked together with unbelievers: for what fellowship hath righteousness with unrighteousness? And what communion...
