Started Reading It...

i don't believe in god, and i am very sceptical about religion, but i had to read the Bible to get the better insight of the religion, and i wanted to understand it more deeply... and all i can say, i couldn't finish it. it was, coming from my point of you, very self-contradicting, and plain boring. of course it wasn't meant to be thrilling or entertaining. either way you take it - literally or not, it's still very very far fetched. well at least i now really know, that Christianity, and all religious stuff, is not my cup of tea...

i'd rather stick to logic and common sense, even though it does not offer me  neither salvation, nor comfort...

oh stmingiux, I'm not going to tell you that I know the Bible from cover to cover or anything like that. But if you have any questions please feel free to ask me. The same goes for anyone else.

First I want to talk about the Bible. Stmingiux no where in the Bible is there a contradiction. The every since the days on Noah people have tried to prove the Bible to be a myth. Yet every time people try to prove it wrong they prove it right. People have tried to prove the historical facts of the Bible to be wrong but prove the to be true. Scientist have proven the Great Flood. They have found Noah's Ark. They have found historical land markers talked about in the Bible. <br />
It sounds to me that you're not sure if there is a God or not. Ask Him to reveal Himself to you. He will.<br />
Rickysworld You can know for sure where you are going when you die. You can know without a doubt. I John 5:12 "He who has the Son has life; He who does not have the Son of God does not have life." Jesus is the Son of God. He is the only begotten Son of God. <br />
John 3:16 "For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son that whoever believes in Him shall not perish but have everlasting life." <br />
John 14:6 Jesus said unto him I am the way, the truth and the life, no one comes unto the Father except through Me." <br />
If you believe in Jesus by rusting Him with your life, allowing Him to come into your heart by admitting you are a sinner and need Him to forgive you as we all do.<br />
Romans 3:23 "for all have sinned and come short of the glory of God." That mean all of us. I John 1:8 "If we say we have no sin we deceive ourselves and truth is not in us." <br />
We all sin and have to come to realize that in order to be saved. I John 1:9 "If we confess our sin He is faithful and just to forgive us our sin and to cleanse from all unrighteousness." <br />
Once we have admitted we are sinners we need to admit that we need a savior. There is only one savior. Remember John 14:6 and I John 5:12. Jesus is the one true savior. Romans 10:9 "that if you confess with you mouth the Lord Jesus and believe in your heart that God raised Him from the dead you will be saved." To confess is to confess with your mouth in you talk. To believe in your heart is to believe in you inner being. Your heart is all you are. This means it should be life changing.<br />
Who can be saved? Romans 10:13 "For whoever calls on the name of the Lord shall be saved." This includes anyone reading this. <br />
I John 5:13 "These things I have written to you that you may know that you who believe in the Son of God that you may know that you have eternal life and that you may continue to believe in the name of the Son of God."<br />
If you confess your sins, trust in Jesus. Believe in Him you will be saved and know that you are going to heaven.

I judge no one! I was raise with no religion at all. The choise has been left up to me alone. I believe life is a learning expeirence you learn what you need to learn than it's time to go and were do we go? Well I have no clue how could I. When people ask religios questions that can't be answered they say you just have to have faith this meas they don't understand and for peace of mind we don't have to and we may not. We just learn.

you should belive in god,because there is one,but thats your choise.just take one thing at a time and one day at a time and you will see the real truth about what you dont see.i wish the best for you.just my two cents worth.
