No, they're a roadmap to a relationship with The Only Living God, Whose Right Hand (His Living Word) came into our plane of existence in The Form of Flesh. He is Love. His Word is also our Savior, Lord and God; but Jesus Himself said that He came to seek and to save that which was lost. What was lost was relationship. It's what Adam and Eve lost in the garden. Jesus restored man's ability to have a relationship with God, but only through His Blood.No, they haven't. There have been errors in handwriting or spelling, but they weren't edits or changes. The accuracy of the history stated in Scripture alone makes The Bible the stand-out record of antiquity. Indeed it is the ONLY record of parts of our history. The authenticity of Scripture is unquestionable. And that from a child thou hast known the holy scriptures, which are able to make thee wise unto salvation through faith which is in Christ Jesus. All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness: that the man of God may be perfect, thoroughly furnished unto all good works.
If you are not a believer, then you don't know The Scriptures to be holy, you only know that they are words. To us who believe, these Words are alive and powerful, sharper than any double-edged sword and capable of discerning between soul and spirit.The ones who murdered people weren't believers. Those who are Christian bear no ill-will towards their neighbor. They walk in forgiveness. They walk in love. Just because someone calls themselves: "Christian," doesn't make them such. There will always be counterfeits. The Urantia Papers is a perfect example. The Lord didn't inspire a single word of it. It's full of darkness.Obvious flaws? People have been on the world's longest fault-finding mission ever against The Holy Scriptures, and not one soul has yet found a single fault. God's Word still stands. I say in spite of religious-minded men and today's 'do whatever feels good' attitude men have still found their way into a relationship with The Living God. That speaks volumes for His Word.No, it was half-truth, the same thing used to design the Urantia Papers. The same thing you used to write this post. God wants us to walk in the light. Those of us who are Christian are the only light this world has. You and Paul walk in darkness. You both need to repent. Resist the darkness. Come to the light... we have cookies. :thumb:
