Explain why the Bible is GOOD, my soul may be on the line
Most Bible believers seem to believe in hell for unbelievers.

I think the Bible is vile, my soul may be on the line.

If you believe that the Bible is good please explain why.

I found it a difficult book to finish.
It has given hope to the hopeless.
It has been used to do good and bad.
Perhaps you need to see some Youtube videos focusing on Leonard Knight at Salvation Mountain:

..."Lord I'm a sinner, please come into my heart"...

Leonard's motto, "Keep It Simple".

I like to focus on acts not deeds.
I don't like talking about beliefs.
I won't testify to anybody, because it's personnel.

Try giving yourself the holy sacrements when your surrounded by a natural church (a forest).

Don't get too hung up on the Bible, or too distant either.

There's a lot of words, to say a simple thing.

At the very least, it is a guide for living which usually leads to a peaceful existence. Also has some health tips in it.

Just because you believe in God and the bible, does not mean you have to go around judging everyone else or blabbing about it.

Search your heart and ask yourself if you are truly fulfilled.

Give the man in the sky a chance, and really believe in it, and see what happens. If it does not pan out, you at least used the scientific approach and attempted to believe in it and can then go on with life knowing you gave it the college try.

You owe it to yourself because if it is in fact true, you will be screwed.

Good luck to you and your decision, but I think you already know how you are going to proceed.

The Word of God is yours given to you by your savior Jesus Christ. He loves you and will embrace you for seeking to embrace Him. Ask the Holy Spirit to Direct you and Protect you in Jesus' name and Salvation is yours.

Do the will of the Father.

The Bible is written in a way to ensure only those who desire above all else to attain knowledge of God, receive it. Those who do not ever come to an understanding, do so out of laziness, and disbelief, and have nobody to blame but themselves in the end.

Logically, the video makes sense.

Belief in God does not make logical sense, but I do anyway.

i tend to dwell on the Jesus part of the bible, and overlook the old testament in its entirety, but that is my personal opinion as well as some major religions.

I wish you luck as you truly seem distressed by this whole thing and at least your are searching for some answers.

You DO NOT focus on the "Jesus part" of the Bible, proof below:

Matthew 5:18

I tell you the truth, until heaven and earth disappear, not the smallest letter, not the least stroke of a pen, will by any means disappear from the Law until everything is accomplished.

Anyone who breaks one of the least of these commandments and teaches others to do the same will be called least in the kingdom of heaven, but whoever practices and teaches these commands will be called great in the kingdom of heaven.

hell means grave

there is no eternal punishment because there is no eternal soul

the Bible tells us that soul just means living creature

immortality is granted after judgement


so relax, if you are not a believer, you will just die and stay dead

oblivion


however, there is a reward of eternal life through Christ Jesus if you chose that path

Re: Explain why the Bible is GOOD, my soul may be on the line
Read the book of Job. Your problem is your self righteous. Do you really think you are more righteous than God? Do you believe that you could perform his job better than he? Sometimes things happen for reasons that we cannot even possibly begin to comprehend.

The simple fact of the matter is the bible is true because its prophecies have been proven true. Ancient cities have been found. There is all kinds of evidence pointing to God, and very little evidence to point to the contrary.


The God of the old testament is the same God in the new testament. God has his reasons for doing both good and evil and he even says he will repent of the evil he has sworn to do to men if they would only repent likewise.


If your a leftist liberal and think that abortion is okay then your a hypocrite for believing that any evil that Jehovah has done is any worse than what you have done.

Christ said that if you have thought of doing evil than you are just as guilty of that evil as if you had done it. We all fall short of the glory of God. Our righteousness on our best of days is as filthy rags before a holy God.


Since we have all fallen short we are all deserving of hell. You deserve it, and I deserve it. God is a righteous judge and he must judge evil. All sin in his eyes are equal. After all what is a bucket full of white paint with a few drops of black but a shade of grey? Our only hope of salvation and purification is by the blood of Jesus Christ.

Before Christ was taken into captivity and crucified in the garden he drank every last drop of the cup of his Fathers wrath and indignation meant for us, unto himself. The blameless took all of our sins and blasphemies unto himself and took our place. He did this so that all those who have faith enough to believe in him and get to know him and love him would be saved from his father's wrath.


In the end all that you have to do to be saved is love. You know what he got for his gesture? Beaten, whipped, mocked, and crucified. And every time you reject him and post bullshit posts like this you spit the blood of your would be savior into his face. And what does it profit you? To hate the one whose truest commandment was to love and treat others as you would want to be loved and treated yourself.

Re: Explain why the Bible is GOOD, my soul may be on the line
Hi OP,

Jesus is the complete fulfillment of the OT Law that was given to TEACH mankind the ways of the KINGDOM OF GOD. The Law convicted mankind of sin. Sin ultimately destroys and therefore needs atonement.

In the Old Testament a blood sacrifice was accepted as payment for sin.Chiefly because blood cleanses.... as well it does our physical system and is the physical life force for humans.

However, Jesus became the PERFECT BLOOD SACRIFICE for any sin that we have ever committed, providing we receive His precious gift. When we accept His payment, we accept Him.

He assures that He is 'THE WAY THE TRUTH AND THE LIFE, AND NO ONE COMES TO THE FATHER BUT BY HIM'.That is the condition of the contract/covenant.

For believers,Heaven is the final destination where sin is nonexistant.

Jesus dwelt among the outcasts of His day...He loved them and forgave them and healed them when they reached out to HIM.

Today is no different. He is the God of Love and willingness to forgive.

The Bible is TRUTH and is revealed by the Holy Spirit to those who reach out in sincerity. The Prophecies alone read like a news article in our own time.

His Name has POWER beyond any other name. He is coming back and will fulfill all prophecy...down to the 'last jot and tittle'....

He awaits you to prove His TRUTH...

God Blesshf

So OP asks a baited question then pounces on all who honestly try to be helpful. Then OP finally admits he/she had suffered at the hands of a church and is ashamed of it ...

OP - the problem is you. Lashing out at the Bible, believers, religion or your fellow GLPers is not going to make it go away.

Seek professional help because your issues are starting to manifest themselves in unhealthy ways ...

You have the rest of your life here on earth to seek answers, deny or believe ... it is "as they say" your journey.

However, to blame the bible or God and then to try in earnest to bait others in and then take out all your aggression's upon them for problems that are truly yours to bear ...

Well that confirms the devil within you, doesn't it now.
