Re: Something that confuses me about the bible.
Saul of Tarsus (aka "Paul") is a FALSE APOSTLE. Do not believe anything he wrote.

He is not a real apostle. There were only 12 true apostles.

Saul/Paul was a jewish pharisee who infiltrated to destroy the movement from within by teaching false doctrine.

Romans 13 Let every soul be subject unto the higher powers. For there is no power but of God: the powers that be are ordained of God.

2 Whosoever therefore resisteth the power, resisteth the ordinance of God: and they that resist shall receive to themselves damnation.

I want to please God, but I'm having trouble accepting the part in bold.

Can anyone shed any light on this?

You can see that happening throughout the Old Testament.

The 2 kings of Babylon, early in Daniel, are probably the best example.

gaah

Jesus chose 12 in the beginning.

One was discarded.

Then He chose Paul as the replacement 12th apostle.

Although throughout scripture, God typically gave the people leaders that they "deserved" - they'd be a reflection of their own hearts. It's in the vein of reaping what we sow.

Ultimately, 2 Chronicles 7:14 provides the recourse ;)

Re: Something that confuses me about the bible.
Having therefore obtained help of God, I continue unto this day, witnessing both to small and great,
saying none other things than those which the prophets and Moses did say should come:
That Christ should suffer, and that he should be the first that should rise from the dead,
and should shew light unto the people, and to the Gentiles.


Paul


But now the righteousness of God without the law is manifested, being witnessed by the law and the prophets;
Even the righteousness of God which is by faith of Jesus Christ unto all and upon all them that believe:
for there is no difference: For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God;
Being justified freely by his grace through the redemption that is in Christ Jesus:
Whom God hath set forth to be a propitiation through faith in his blood,
to declare his righteousness for the remission of sins that are past, through the forbearance of God
;
To declare, I say, at this time his righteousness: that he might be just,
and the justifier of him which believeth in Jesus.


Paul


Moreover, brethren, I declare unto you the gospel which I preached unto you, which also ye have received, and wherein ye stand;
By which also ye are saved, if ye keep in memory what I preached unto you, unless ye have believed in vain.
For I delivered unto you first of all that which I also received,
how that Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures;
And that he was buried, and that he rose again the third day according to the scriptures:
And that he was seen of Cephas, then of the twelve:
After that, he was seen of above five hundred brethren at once;
of whom the greater part remain unto this present, but some are fallen asleep.
After that, he was seen of James; then of all the apostles.
And last of all he was seen of me also, as of one born out of due time.
For I am the least of the apostles, that am not meet to be called an apostle,
because I persecuted the church of God.



Paul

Re: Something that confuses me about the bible.
I find it hard to believe that you can not see the irony of a passage from the book of ROMANS, in a book WRITTEN BY ROMANS, that tells you to serve (subject yourself to) "The powers that be" because they (were programmed to) believed that their Leaders were gods .... duh

you really need to check the source of your BS (belief system) before you adopt it as your way of life, as a slave

the Bible was designed, to get the Roman "subject" to accept INEQUALITY ... they were "gods" and everyone else on earth, were considered their slaves ... The original "christian" church was the ROMAN CATHOLIC (WORLD) CHURCH - which by the year 2000 had gained dominion of the Earth - as evidenced by the fact that the entire world celebrated the "Gregorian" New Year's day, as the "official" start of a new year ... thanks to two thousand years of god worshipers, promoting, the ROMAN "gospel" to the ends of the earth ... that only grants their followers a reward for their faithful service, after they die lmao

Zactly.

People should read up on the formation of the early Christian Church.

No, the Bible consists of several books and authors, and doesn't claim to be the inspired word of God as compiled and canonized.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 74960594


According to freewill you can say it. But it is not THE TRUTH!
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 76523917


Does your lack of freewill prevent you from learning the history of how the sacred book you put so much relevance in came into existence? I think it does. Otherwise you could not ignore the ambiguous selections for inclusion and the relation of the beliefs of those who made those decisions. Nor could you pretend that the cultural and political influences of the day also played a tremendous role in building this collection of unfact-checked writings.

I guess getting all hyper because you think your nonintellectual feelings are, to you, greatly more valid than actual proven history allows you to win the debate in your mind.

Congratulations. You're mentally 6 years old.

The bible between the covers is a manmade collection of tales, some bullshit, some trune some of no consequence one way or another.
It's a book, half myth, half suggestion, half insignificant half lifechanging.
But not all of it is important.
