Why I've decided not to read the bible

The Bible is mostly Astrotheological. It's definitely worth reading. There's very little proof for any sort of a literal interpretation of it, so it's time we stop looking at it in such a way.

care to elaborate? i dont know what you're talking about. id like you to try and convince me to read it if you are willing.

the bible's a fun book to read, even if most of it is nonsense, just like books written by ancient Greeks or Romans.

You gain no knowledge by being purposely ignorant of something. Ive read the bible, I dont believe in god and never really have, but its the most read book in the world, so I wanted to read it as I like expanding my knowledge on things. Theres nothing wrong with reading the bible, believing in things with out any factual basis or evidence is the problem.

If anything, reading it made me even less inclined to believe.

also OP's link makes some mistakes because the writer doesn't fully understand the Bible.

Under the section "For The Sins Of Another" the writer says that Jephthah sacrificed his daughter. This is not what the Bible says if you fully understand the context it is written in.

the movie Harlem Nights got allot of bad reviews that said it was Murphys worst movie - i'm sure the reviews made some people not see it -

i think it's one of his best movies -

THE W 05-14-2013 10:59 AM

so you stopped reading the bible because you dont like the fact that God is sovereign over what he has created?

certainly not untypical.

The writing in that link makes no sense. God cannot be genocidal. Matter of fact God cannot sin at all because morality is for man, not God.

If you are gonna be ignorant of the bible because somebody else read it and misunderstood it and passed this misunderstanding to you and you believe in this misunderstanding, then the loss is yours. Wouldn't you wanna read it for yourself to get your own understanding of it?

i fail to see how atheists can prove a creator/god/gods do not exist. i just think that this particular god seems like a tyrannical psychotic asshole.

ok maybe i will read it. what was misunderstood though? did this god not mass murder(including innocent creatures)? how is that not genocidal? God has no morals? seems like a crock of shit to me. he doesn't have to follow his own rules? why do we then? just seems like another ruthless authority figure that wants us to blindly obey. what is the loss if i dont read it?

THE W 05-14-2013 03:58 PM

its totally understandable that people will read through the old testament and look at the crucifixion of Jesus and come to such a conclusion.

the explanation for it all is pretty simple though. God is creator of all things. since he created all things he owns all things. since he owns all things He has the right to do with them as he sees fit. God's creative decree(the purpose, meaning, and function of the things God created) is different from his moral decree(how God desires creatures to behave).

at the end of the day, all those nations were destroyed because of their sin.

Paranoid 05-14-2013 05:51 PM

well so be it then, i just can't say i agree with him.

zooruka 05-14-2013 07:36 PM

Believe me when I say you should read the bible.


This is the truth


peace

Paranoid 05-14-2013 08:15 PM

create them with the ability to sin, then kill them for sinning - he even kills the babies that haven't sinned yet, and those who survived the attack, are left to live a maimed life in pain.

some parents can use this authority claim to justify abusing their children also


and people who claim to love this god and live by his rules also feel they got the right to hurt and abuse people in the name of god -


those who claim they are the children of god are killing some gentiles right now as we type.
