    Cool. So what happens when we interpret what the Bible says in different ways?

    The Bible is Gods inspired Word, He told the prophets what to write. They didn't even know what some of the prophecies meant, because they spoke of our modern times. So we know the Bible is 100% true because God doesn't make mistakes, He is perfect in every way

    Honestly. I haven't seen any debate since I got here. I've seen discussion, arguing and ridiculing, but no real debate. A thread like this will get a great deal of attention but one on Slavery will get very little if any attention.

    There are Christians here?!

    How do they reconcile Adam, sin, and the Messiah with evolution? By turning them into a myth?

    The old Jewish faith was deeply flawed, and those flaws show up in Christianity. Sacrificing of animals is rather pointless. How does that earn forgiveness and why? For the same reason the story of Jesus's crucifixion fails. You are only portraying an evil and incompetent god. Why do what? Why worship such a being? It only makes you look the same.

    You never know when your hour will come. It may
    be minutes away. Are you sure you are in no hurry
    to repent your falsehood about the bible being
    100% correct?

    Tick tick tick.


    never send to know for whom the bells tolls; it tolls for thee.

    No, all of Gods people arrive at the same conclusion after studying the Bible. So there's no problem between Gods elect, it's only the false professors who stir up trouble

    The Adam and Eve story paints your version of God as being incompetent and evil. Why hang on to it? People are flawed. If you want a messiah all he has to do is to save people from their inherent flaws, the source does not matter that much.

    It's pretty simple. Sin is an inherent quality of humans, because of human nature, which is a direct result of evolution. No original sinner required. As for the Messiah? Well, the exact mechanics of salvation isn't exactly clear, but there's a reason this stuff is a faith, and also why it's called a Holy Mystery.

    OK, if you insist. I'm one of God's elect. If you disagree with me on anything, you're a false professor.

    The Bible says that the Word of God is foolishness to the reprobate (those who are sealed for eternal torment in hell fire) are you sure it's foolishness

    That is merely confirmation bias and does not solve anything. Especially when two different people can interpret it differently and will, as in your case, claim that the other is not saved because he does not believe your equally bogus interpretation.

    Ah so, it does not say it is 100% correct, or inerrant,
    or any other thing to the effect. That is your extrabiblical
    interpretation.

    Now, on that 300 cubit ark. 300.0000000000000000
    or do you have to do "context" on that too?

    Funny that a guy who "knows" it is "100% cant
    just vouch for the book, whatever it says.
    Why to you suppose that is?

    Some little thought back in your mind telling
    you I set a trap, and you must do anything
    no matter how undignified, to avoid it?

    (the trap is awful, btw; it is holding you to
    your word)

    Amos was a raiser of sheep and a sycamore fig nipper. The Hebrew word noqedhim "sheep raiser " only appears twice in scripture. 2 Kings 3:4 Amos 1:1 , Amos 7:14.

    Moses was a leader of the nation of Israel, mediator of the Law covenant, prophet, judge, commander, historian, and writer, highly educated in Egypt. Though he was, briefly, a sheep herder. No goats so far.

    Not all of Gods people are Bible scholars, so it's not necessary to know much about the Bible to be saved. The only thing believers need to know to be saved is to trust in Jesus for the forgiveness of their sins.

    Jesus said, as many as believe in Me will be saved, He didn't say we needed to be Bible scholars. The thief on the cross was saved on the cross for believing in Christ, he didn't have time to get a degree in theology
