Re: The bible is full of shit! (New Testament Contradiction Edition)
Any other takers besides the two people that offer no rebuttal and instead only attack me?

Probably not, yawn.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 33398445


I guess you don't really want those answers, OP, do you? They are trivially easy to find.

You just want to stir the pot.

 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 33398445


There are no contradictions in the Bible. So besides that fact, what's it to you? C&P someone else's lies and come here to start an argument so you can feel important, or special eh!

Well guess what, all you show is your ignorance.

So now I'm going to enlighten you a little. If you believe what you posted is true, It's because God is messing with you.

It's a test! So far you are failing miserably, but that's OK, you still have a little time left to get it right.

But the one thing you don't wanna do, is come back here demanding any one else to do your work for you, K!

Here, have a tomato.

 Quoting: neverfear


I just pointed out 41 contradictions, are you blind? Whom is showing 'ignorance'?

Your choosing to ignore what I put in front of your face does not make it go away. You can offer no rebuttal so you attack me.

Another typical response.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 33398445


Are you really this dense, uh, never mind, I know the answer.

Look here, you have "pointed out" nothing to me, save one; you are in grave peril.

How in the world could you possibly think that someone here can come against the strong delusion that God Himself sent to you? God is way stronger than any other thing in His creation.

And because of your hard heart, He is messing with you. He has given you your own hearts desires to believe in the lies that you profess.

If you really wanna know the truth, you must first ask God to lift you up to your knees. Crawling around on your belly in the dust of the earth is where you will remain if you don't ask!

People have to learn how to think about stuff outside of their belief systems. Logic can't operate along with programmed beliefs. You have to think in order to consider that you might be wrong. There are a lot of misconceptions and contradictions in the Bible. I doubt that it is indeed what it claims to be only because it seems too put together as a book. Glaring contradictions and grammar issues AFTER they had all those experts transcribing it just reeks of AGENDA to me.

Re: The bible is full of shit! (New Testament Contradiction Edition)
OP

I am going to have a moment of mercy and make a plea to the part of your brain that still functions and has something called "dignity."

Do not argue with me. You will not win, you will look stupid to everyone who reads your words, and you will walk away from our interaction feeling badly about yourself.

If you are happy with your weed and wii and your Mom's basement, do yourself a favor and walk away now before I bring real shame to your ego.

You are new, and you're trying to show the world you know something, I get it, but you MUST REALIZE NOW that you don't know jack.

Isn't it apparent, yet?

I offer you this now so that you can accept my Mercy before this goes any further and your little ego is shattered.

Again, you won't win, you'll just have wasted your day.

I've got 3 kids here, so I'm not going anywhere.

You want to keep going?
 Quoting: Holy_Diver


Classic Christian response. No defense for 41 different bible contradictions, so you get mad and attack the messenger.

Yea I must look like the idiot to any sane person reading this...

Sure.

 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 33398445


First of all, it is readily apparent that I am far from a "Classic Christian" and I didn't attack you, I appealed to your sense of dignity.

You have now announced to this forum that you have no dignity left to protect, and that you wish to continue to publicly embarass yourself. Okay, child, game on.

In a few short sentences, I have clued you in to something that it takes many years for students of God/Christ and Bible to uncover.

The New Testament, particularly the Gospels are an Astrological codex to those who understand the symbols, and since Astrology is cyclical yet subject to a certain degree of deviation based on several factors, one line will read differently than another telling the same piece of story.

Wise Men can use that information.

Now if you've got an argument that you think can actually stand up to thousands of years of mystery schools, I'd really like to hear it.

I'm waiting.

And if your defense is to continue to use smilies to obfuscate your lack of argument or reason, let us all know in advance that you have chosen a cowardly and ineffectual defense that further denigrates any dignity you might possess.

Still waiting.

Less than 100 words.

The winners got together and decided to wipe history and the minds of upcoming generations. SO they took tried and "true" methods and stories and then put certain tones, spells and inflections in them to connect to energy that they know exists . Meanwhile they keep the divide going by keeping people fighting over programmed contradictions and such. The bible has stories, "history", astrology, genetics and allegory. It's not just some book that tells what happened. I honestly think that the Names Jesus and such are strong for their TONAL sounds and such rather than the actual being (not denying the being of Jesus- but it is a title and not a name)

If there are rebuttals, then why doesn't someone post them instead of saying "go look for them" - ?

My point is, if God is so smart why did he give us such a muddled mess of a book that would even EVER require people to point out or rebut apparent contradictions...

Being omniscient and omnipotent, surely He would have forseen what a complete clusterfuck He was creating by being less than clear.

Would have been a lot easier had Jesus written his own Gospel, and in simple clear writing made perfectly clear exactly what was Truth.

Why does God make it so difficult to believe in Him?

Re: The bible is full of shit! (New Testament Contradiction Edition)
So the bible is really astrology & the words are lies anyway?
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 33398445


You are tirelessly stupid. I never said the words are lies, you are trying to put words in my mouth. This tactic does not go unnoticed by people reading your words, and you continue to expose yourself.

I said the New Testament is an Astrological Codex, and I also said that the Disciples taught in allegory so simpletons could understand and have something to think about and latch on to. An allegory is not a lie, and if an allegory also carries along with it Astrological codex, than it is a doubly useful piece of literature.

You can try to deny that but you'd just be exposing even more idiocy on your behalf.


That would make Christianity a total hoax even more so than I am pointing out.
 Quoting: whomever

No, it would make it infinitely more clever than what you are pointing out. Whether it's a hoax or not is a seperate issue altogether.

See, you have a hard time even following your own line of thinking in a linear fashion. This is probably due to chronic substance abuse with a history of it in your broken family. Once drugs get in, it's impossible to have minds produced that are capable of any real thought.

It's not your fault, I feel sorry for you. I can see why you are angry with God. But you sacrifice any dignity you might hold on to when you try to bring down something you don't understand and lack the capicty to understand.

I don't pity you so much when you do that, you just sound like a biting dog that needs to be put down for the betterment of society.
If only 'wise men' can understand it, what is the point of every Christian I ever see trying to convert me if I won't understand it anyway?
 Quoting: whomever

You don't need to understand it to benefit from it. Christ will work with whatever you give him and you will, at one point or another, improve yourself and your spiritual circumstances.
If only 'Wise men' understand it, then what's the point of having it public? Your explanation offers little in terms of rebuttal, it just leaves more questions.
 Quoting: whomever

For a long, long time, it wasn't public. The Bible was kept in the hands of Clergy, and only the initiated were permitted to study it.

Do you want to know why? Because the uninitiated don't understand it and gang up on it in their ignorance.

If it was up to people like you, it would be eradciated from the Earth and we'd all just be living the movie "Idiocracy" and you'd be like a pig reveling in the shit.

I know that what I just said actually sounds appealing to you, and if so, please refer to my remark about a biting dog that just needs to be put down.

If you aren't prepared to publicly defend it, why bother replying?
 Quoting: whomever


You are the only person too stupid to see that I am publically defending it.

Why bother? Someone less stupid than you will see what I'm saying it will resonate true, and they will begin their adventure towards Christ and salvation.

If I am created in God's image, then my expectations are Divine.

Yet He fails to live up to them.

Interesting retort. I'll have to remember that one.

How do you think you've been created "in God's image?"
 Quoting: Life and Love


Per His word.

Created as a reflection and incarnation of His perfect love, wisdom, justice, and power.

Yet the reflection is imperfect, meaning as the OP says, the Creator is imperfect.

Even the imperfect reflection can see the flaws in the original image with little effort.

Either the Creator is flawed, or does not exist.

Re: The bible is full of shit! (New Testament Contradiction Edition)
So the bible is really astrology & the words are lies anyway?
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 33398445


You are tirelessly stupid. I never said the words are lies, you are trying to put words in my mouth. This tactic does not go unnoticed by people reading your words, and you continue to expose yourself.

I said the New Testament is an Astrological Codex, and I also said that the Disciples taught in allegory so simpletons could understand and have something to think about and latch on to. An allegory is not a lie, and if an allegory also carries along with it Astrological codex, than it is a doubly useful piece of literature.

You can try to deny that but you'd just be exposing even more idiocy on your behalf.


That would make Christianity a total hoax even more so than I am pointing out.
 Quoting: whomever

No, it would make it infinitely more clever than what you are pointing out. Whether it's a hoax or not is a seperate issue altogether.

See, you have a hard time even following your own line of thinking in a linear fashion. This is probably due to chronic substance abuse with a history of it in your broken family. Once drugs get in, it's impossible to have minds produced that are capable of any real thought.

It's not your fault, I feel sorry for you. I can see why you are angry with God. But you sacrifice any dignity you might hold on to when you try to bring down something you don't understand and lack the capicty to understand.

I don't pity you so much when you do that, you just sound like a biting dog that needs to be put down for the betterment of society.
If only 'wise men' can understand it, what is the point of every Christian I ever see trying to convert me if I won't understand it anyway?
 Quoting: whomever

You don't need to understand it to benefit from it. Christ will work with whatever you give him and you will, at one point or another, improve yourself and your spiritual circumstances.
If only 'Wise men' understand it, then what's the point of having it public? Your explanation offers little in terms of rebuttal, it just leaves more questions.
 Quoting: whomever

For a long, long time, it wasn't public. The Bible was kept in the hands of Clergy, and only the initiated were permitted to study it.

Do you want to know why? Because the uninitiated don't understand it and gang up on it in their ignorance.

If it was up to people like you, it would be eradciated from the Earth and we'd all just be living the movie "Idiocracy" and you'd be like a pig reveling in the shit.

I know that what I just said actually sounds appealing to you, and if so, please refer to my remark about a biting dog that just needs to be put down.

If you aren't prepared to publicly defend it, why bother replying?
 Quoting: whomever


You are the only person too stupid to see that I am publically defending it.

Why bother? Someone less stupid than you will see what I'm saying it will resonate true, and they will begin their adventure towards Christ and salvation.
 Quoting: Holy_Diver


Yawn, you again attack the messenger pointing out the contradictions instead of defending them.

Again you point to Christianity being an 'Astrological Chart', which I've never heard from the Theological community anyway...

Even if the bible was a simple astrological chart, why the contradictions in the chart? Your explanation still offers no logical rebuttal.

Re: The bible is full of shit! (New Testament Contradiction Edition)
If there are rebuttals, then why doesn't someone post them instead of saying "go look for them" - ?

My point is, if God is so smart why did he give us such a muddled mess of a book that would even EVER require people to point out or rebut apparent contradictions...

Being omniscient and omnipotent, surely He would have forseen what a complete clusterfuck He was creating by being less than clear.

Would have been a lot easier had Jesus written his own Gospel, and in simple clear writing made perfectly clear exactly what was Truth.

Why does God make it so difficult to believe in Him?

What a prick.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 23836182


God didn't organize the Bible into what it is today. Constantine and Nicea Did.

Do you think that Initiated Occultists would design a book that was understandable by the unwashed, uninitiated masses? Do you think they would design a book that caused millions of people to be spiritually liberated without a method by which to control that population?

What you attribute to God is actually in the hands of free-will mankind.

If you are confused and uninitiated, you simply only need the allegories...to meditate on them and get the messages they are intended to convey.

If at such a point in time as you get those messages you will become a person who is ready for further understandings.

I do not serve you the dessert before you've had the salad.

Ah, finally. Something to respond to. Thank you, OP.

Now I see where you are coming from. You have your personal expectations of God and He's not living up to them. A common occurance.

The question boils down do, "Will you follow a God who does not live up to your expectations?"

No need to answer. I know what yours is.

Either this, or a bunch of men decided to put words into his mouth by writing a book and saying it was from him.

No, that would be to logical wouldn't it?

True!

HD, I'm sure you and I don't see eye to eye on some details but I do know that we share a spiritual journey, and I appreciate your posts.

This is the first semi-logical statement you have made. You admit men like Constantine arranged the bible with the attention of population control.

Good for you, now take it a step further and I think you will have the logical answer.

Re: The bible is full of shit! (New Testament Contradiction Edition)
OP

I am going to have a moment of mercy and make a plea to the part of your brain that still functions and has something called "dignity."

Do not argue with me. You will not win, you will look stupid to everyone who reads your words, and you will walk away from our interaction feeling badly about yourself.

If you are happy with your weed and wii and your Mom's basement, do yourself a favor and walk away now before I bring real shame to your ego.

You are new, and you're trying to show the world you know something, I get it, but you MUST REALIZE NOW that you don't know jack.

Isn't it apparent, yet?

I offer you this now so that you can accept my Mercy before this goes any further and your little ego is shattered.

Again, you won't win, you'll just have wasted your day.

I've got 3 kids here, so I'm not going anywhere.

You want to keep going?
 Quoting: Holy_Diver


This has got to be a joke. LOL It's GOT to be. Such incredibly ridiculous "reasoning", and unbelievable audacity...not to mention the laughable "insults"...it's so ridiculous it HAS to be a joke! Lol...lol...lol. Either that or an extremely disillusioned person who is in serious need of psychiatric evaluation.
