    Thats the point though isn`t it?
    The vast majority of Christians I run across vehemently deny even the possibilty of ANY error for ANY reason
    If it can contain even one error such as the possible mis-documentation of the Potters field purchase then logically it can contain more and perhaps many that from our historical point of view can never be noticed.
    It`s kind of funny that it was a contradiction that might have shown an actual error concerning Potters field.
    Perhaps other errors have no parallel contradiction to make them noticable.

    It just doesn`t strike me as a particularly reliable source to lay the foundations of ones spirituality.
    No more than say...Green Eggs & Ham.
    I know there are no contradictions in Green Eggs & Ham!!
    The moral is even better...."Don`t knock it `til you try it"!
    Can`t beat that.

    :)

    I for one couldn`t care less if you answered another single post or not Mr.Emu.
    You`d lose no respect from me.

    Did you just ignore my last post Harold? I specifically said I already have too much to work with. Please do not post any more, as they will not be dealt with until I am done with what I alreday have.

    If you find a posted contradiction that you feel is true will you admit it?

    Do you believe that Joshua stopped the Sun and the Moon in the sky for 24 hours?

    If I truly thought a contradiction were true, than yes I would admit it, I don't though(clerical errors aside), so you won't have tow orry about that.

    I am sorry, what verse(s) are you reffering to?

    Jos 10:12 Then spake Joshua to the LORD in the day when the LORD delivered up the
    Amorites before the children of Israel, and he said in the sight of Israel, Sun, stand thou still upon Gibeon; and thou, Moon, in the valley of Ajalon.

    I use to be a literal fundamental Christian that believed that everything in the bible was the word of God without error. My eyes became open after seeing evidence in Museums all over the world that housed relics, scrolls, artifacts, hieroglyphics, and papyrus that proved that Christianity is a mimicked religion that is full of untruths. As I reread the bible with an opened mind I began to see hundreds of errors and contradictions. As long as you believe that there are none, you will never see them.

    Yes, I do believe Josh 10:12.

    I am sorry that your eyes were closed to the truth Harold, and I will pray that the Holy Spirit opens your eyes, and that God comes once again into your life.

    That some of the truths of the Bible were corrupted by other civilizations does not prove that we mimicked another religion.

    On the other hand, some of the early Chrisitian practices we now perpetuate were created or changed to help smooth the conversions of the pagan people into the truth of Christ.

    Then how on earth do you explain the various saints that have an uncanny resemblance to pagan gods and goddesses?

    'Borrowing' from one religion or not, it's still mimicking.

    The above articles, sadly, are quite biased against Catholicism, however, the message stands for all of Christianity, as all of the other sects are offshoots of Catholicism.

    Hey it looks like we have another bigot on the site! Great.... we seem to be filling up quick.

    Nice job Druidus, I will look forward to your treatice on Jews or blacks next.

    You should be ashamed of yourself..... just because you find lies and garbage like this on some anti-Catholic website does not mean you should post it. The fact that you could post this crap (it has 30+ factual errors and several just plain lies) shows what kind of person you are.
