its also like this with many old testament books. the hebrew part, not the punishment part.
It's called faith for a reason. Everyone has to find their own proof and I've got mine.
What proof? Please enlighten us all.
i dont hear any other theories. i guess were all just subject to post modernism
It may have been written by god, it may have not. Remember back in the Middle Ages, who were the only ones able to read and right? Priests. They may have easily been able to go, "Meeeeh, I don't like that and they could have added what they wanted in there.
Oh good thing they were not the current bunch or every little boy would be abused.
mankind is biased toward their (actually, it should be "its") own opinions? what else IS there?
Even if God had written it down in the beginning, MEN always Men translated and reproduced it so many times, it has to be slanted in many ways. Thank God it was at least done by anyone not Muslim, or women would be treated even worse than they are.
Yup, nothing but man-made books with a couple hundred prophesies that came true hundreds of years later.
And I'm just kidding btw. I agree with what you said. :D
From the man with a picture of Raptor-Jesus (or at least his counterpart, Jesus with a raptor) as his profile pic? Haha.
I was getting tired of that picture anyways. :P
revelations 22:18-19;"I warn everyone who hears the words of the prophecy of this book:if anyone adds anything to them, god will add to him the plagues described in this book.And anyone who takes words away from this book of prophecy, god will take away from him his share in the tree of life and in the holy city,which are described in this book." Now whats interesting about this isnt that its says there are punishments for altering the bible, its that it was translated from hebrew, and not latin. which means this particular copy of the bible was not influenced by priests, only copied.
