Wow...so-called "Bible Scholars" are JUST now figuring this out!?!?!? ROFL...AND it took 53 years! LOL



Scholars in this out-of-the-way corner of the Hebrew
University campus have been quietly at work for 53 years on one of the most
ambitious projects attempted in biblical studies - publishing the authoritative
edition of the Old Testament, also known as the Hebrew Bible, and tracking every
single evolution of the text over centuries and millennia.


And it has evolved, despite deeply held beliefs to the
contrary.

The Biblical text has been endlessly doctored; just ask a fundagelical who insists that St-Paul says that womenfolk can't speak in church--then point out the inserted material by a later hand that says that women can't speak in church, but in the previous verses Paul said that women can speak in church.  They will get flustered, hyper-ventilate, and have no answer, whatsoever. 

*******

"Wesley told the early Methodists to gain all they could and save all they could so that they could give all they could. It means that I consider my money to belong to God and I see myself as one of the hungry people who needs to get fed with God’s money. If I really have put all my trust in Jesus Christ as savior and Lord, then nothing I have is really my own anymore."

Of course it was written by men:


Moses, David, Solomon, The major and minor Prophets, Matthew, Mark, Luke and John, Peter, James and Paul.  I have no quarrel with the who.


I stand with Jewish and Christian tradition on the how. They were moved by the inspiration of the Holy Spirit.

For those who have faith, no explanation is neccessary.
For those who have no faith, no explanation is possible.

That's a great comeback!!!  Amen...Amen.

Who else would it have been written by? Maybe the earliest forms of life here? Aliens from other planets maybe?


If the Liberals/pseudo/proto/neo atheists would quit worrying themselves with "tidy facts" and concern themselves more with what Jesus said as the good news for mankind, we'd be a lot farther along in every aspect of ourselves and our survival.


I can just imagine God and Moses sitting under a tree somewhere 4,000 years ago discussing the Big Bang and Quantum Physics. Chapter one of Genesis would have been a transcript three blocks long.


Get over it...

Now, that's funny. I don't care who ya are.

Naaawwwww......


The Old Testament were written by Reptlians, the Apocrypha by the Insectoids and the New Testament were written by the Greys.

Maybe if the R/TPers would pay more attention to what Jesus said they wouldn't constantly be saying "NO! NO! NO!" to every program that HELPS their fellow human beings--like Healthcare for people without insurance and healthcare clinics for WOMEN etc....

You need to follow your own rules and stick with the subject of the thread.

wg,


Maybe you're confused about what this discussion is about.


What theological advice based upon any religion might you know of would solve the problems you're relating to?


Maybe the non-theologians, et al: Liberals/pseudo/proto/neo atheists have a better idea beyond Non-Accountibility for their actions?


It's great giving away money and it makes the Giver feel good about themselves, but when will the huge cases of outright Fraud be addressed? You DO recognize the huge amount of Fraud your Big Hearts have created? Yes?


When will you do something about it instead of typing in the usual mindnumbing innuendos your side lives by?


Thanx,
