Because they are kept ignorant about where the bible comes from, who actually wrote the various books of the bible, and who picked and choose the books to be included and why they choose only certian books to include. It should be read cover to cover to get the big picture, not hunted and picked through to be twisted to say what they want it to say like every christian leader dose.
Not all Christians are like that. Sorry that you are misinformed.
Because the the Bible is the authority on Jesus and God,where else would anyone know about them if not for the Bible.
Because they can't exactly run into a debate armed with logic, can they? They believe that a talking snake convinced a rib-woman to eat from a magical tree for fxcks sake.
Well, except he wasn't a snake at the time---being turned into a serpent was the punishment afterwards
Oh yeah! And the pre-snake was actually a post- angel that the magical wizard in the sky for... killing.. less...people.. than he did...
Spot on. Magical wizard in the sky. lmao.
Since they are enthralled by the bible, they think others will be too.
We quote the bible to establish what we are saying is not just our own made up personal opinion but that it has sc<x>riptural support. We quote the bible to show where we gained the views we have.
When one is discussing a subject with no actual proof or foundation in evidential material its the only real response. Rhetoric.
Ezekiel 23:19Yet she increased her prostitution, remembering the days of her youth when she engaged in prostitution in the land of Egypt. She lusted after their genitals – as large as those of donkeys, and their seminal emission was as strong as that of stallions.
Man's "common sense" is nothing when compared to God's wisdom.
I quote the Tao Te Ching and Socrates all the time. Heck, I'll quote a rap star if he's got something profound to say.
Because that's how Christians learn about God.
Sorry, I was generalising, thats just one way Christians learn about God, of course theres personal experience, what they've been taught and deduction ect...
?.. oO im missing something here right?
Because it gives me a chance to quote Dr. Seuss in return.
Some/most don't know how to think for themselves
Its a matter of convenience
i got a theory about this one, but i don't want to start any religious discussion here
Without the bible, they could be making up their own words and it doesn't make sense to make up things. The bible is the source of all necessary information on Jesus and God.
