The Bible may be cut to pieces, and changed but it's taken from the original first-hand accounts and I suggest you don't knock it if you believe in God at all.

This new idea that you can believe whatever way you want without paying any attention to what God has actually said (some parts may be opinions, they should be treated with a grain of salt). There is a Heaven, there is a Sheol (pergatory/Limbo - most people go there) there is a hell. Several levels of each. Pick one.

So, what did "God actually say"? I'd like to hear what "God" said and who "God" said it to? The very arguement that we must believe that "God" said what is claimed in the Bible just because a couple of guys claimed "God" said it is completely rediculous.

Everyone's entitled to their own opinion. Not everything can be comprehened by all people. In fact, most people don't understand the Bible because of all those missing parts. But that's not a reason to discredit it just because you don't understand it.

Well, don't assume that because people discredit it, that they must not understand it. I had a moran in Yahoo chat debating the "Trinity" garbage...he said, "Don't blame me, God or the Bible just because you can't comprehend the Trinity"!

I understood the concept plainly, and gave him 2 popular versions of the so called "Trinity" and told him that I think it's rediculous. But, being the wise sheep he was, his poor reasoning skills led him to the conclusion that I must not comprehend it because I disagree with him. wacko.gif

which is it? did you "understand the concept plainly?" or did you "think it's rediculous."

The concept of the Trinity defies logic, was a third/fourth century invention, built on a vote and isn't supported by the Bible.  Nobody understands it simply because it's contradictory and therefore nonsensical.

Is the best you can do to refute someone on this board by picking them up on their incorrect spelling of a word??? Dear me. no.gif

No, but when someone calls someone a "moran"  its irony at its best.

Trinitarians quote a number of verses to support their view.  Opposers quote contradictory verses.  There's little point in my posting a long list of verses from both sides of this argument as other people have already done so.  Google is your friend.

I was merely trying to make the point that for every believer, there's a non-believer, each with an equally valuable outlook.

Why is being called a "moran" ironic?  I don't understand.

he was meaning to say "moron."

when you call someone a name, you better at least spell it correctly. otherwise you look like the word you are using yourself.
