    BZZZZZZZT!!! I’m sorry, your answer is incorrect. I’m afraid you’ve been eliminated from the game, but you won’t go home empty-handed. You’re leaving with a lovely parting gift; the home version of our game: Get. A. Clue!

    No, a parable is meant to appeal to the gut, not the head.

    Intuition isn’t very useful in the exegetical process. In fact, it usually gets in the way.

    Criticism gave you a Bible to read.

    Consider that that’s not God’s intention.

    Jesus was perhaps an Essene. But that’s not the same thing as a gnostic.

    If a Perfect God wants to inspire a book about salvation shouldn't he proof read what his writers write so there no confusion and hundred of denominations don't pop up. But it follows that a perfect all powerful god should be able to handle writting a clear forward book. Yet since the bible is not like that God doesn't exist.

    No thats not right too, because a perfect god would dumb it down enough for us. I'm sorry, but the bible is proof enough that the Christian concept of an all powerful all knowing perfect god does not exist.
