Quote from: Blackleaf on March 06, 2023, 08:04:46 PMIs Jesus' story history or allegory?
Quote from: Dreamer on March 06, 2023, 11:46:31 AMYou're making things up that aren't there. I've shared the verses about that, yet you can't yield that your understanding was wrong? Your insults are ironic, and, as usual, what we say about others has far more to do with ourselves than anyone else.
Quote from: Dreamer on March 07, 2023, 12:00:55 PMI've addressed every verse brought up, which have certainly been cherry picked to show the worst you could find. But you reject it. Why? I suppose it must be that you have some divine inspiration that tells you I'm wrong. No? It's just your own wishes? Okay.
Quote from: Dreamer on March 07, 2023, 11:57:30 AMSo determined to form God to your own understanding, based on your interpretation of Scripture... It's funny how all the crap you're attacking me for is exactly how the early church was attacked. You must have the Bible mean what you want, or you lose your self-appointed high ground. A modern-day Pharisee!

Quote from: Mike Cl on March 07, 2023, 12:47:32 PMYou have not presented a single 'fact' that shows that god exists or even that Jesus exists.
Quote from: Dreamer on March 11, 2023, 06:21:52 PMCorrect. This is not what I am addressing, not the subject of anything I've written here.Rather, I am addressing the Christian dogma that is not only against what Jesus calls us to do, but it's not even Biblical! The Bible teaches against child rape. The Bible teaches God hates child molesters, not gay people. Rape is an abomination. That men who are spiritual leaders over young boys should not have sexual relationship with those children! They are particularly disgusting and depraved.I'm aware of how the Bible was formed 😂 It's divinely inspired, not some text impervious to human deceit, narration, and outright sabotage. I'm likewise interested in all Bible books that are discovered, that had been tossed aside by self-righteous, scared men. And, since God continues to speak to us and teach us even now, I find much worthwhile in various spiritual leaders' words and writings as well. As to you not needing belief in God for a moral or ethical life, that is undoubtedly true.God is love; if you have known love, you have known God. Just like the force of gravity works upon us all without any regard for our beliefs, so is God.Edited to correct the word sabotage because auto-correct isn't always correct..
