It is designed to be understood by everyone who comes to it as a child. Those who try to put a spin on it or invent imaginary gods to replace it have their reward: a false god that doesn't exist....but then he put it in the hands of humans, not only to write it, but also to interpret it...and that messed everything up.
God designed not just The Bible, but the men who wrote it. He didn't make any mistakes in It.Not so sure about that. Humans had a lot more to do with that than god did.
You've just described the job of an editor. :duh:The UB isn't editing the bible...it fills in the blanks, clarifies, and corrects.
It is not God who is described in it's pages.The UB makes god appealing again.
Wow! How subtle is that?That doesn't sound like satan to me.
Now the serpent was more subtil than any beast of the field which the LORD God had made. And he said unto the woman, Yea, hath God said, Ye shall not eat of every tree of the garden?
Imagery is how we communicate. Words, it's been estimated, make known less than about 40% of what we're actually trying to communicate. Everyone has their own 'interpretation' of anything and everything they read. God designed His Word so that He could be found by reading It and by seeking Him with all of one's heart.What sounds like satan is making a caricature out of god...like most believers do.
Thank God for diversity. This world would be pretty boring if we all looked just like you, thought just like you and were all on our way to hell in a hand-basket, ignoring everyone who warned us to watch out for the cliff that's just around the corner.That's because the bible is so perfectly clear that it spawned a brazilian religions, right?
I don't believe that He ever will change a single Word in The Holy Scriptures, but had what He wanted in Them written down so that They could be read by everyone, and They are eternal, and unchanging, just like He is.For a world that's constantly changing? Even god could foresee that meaning changes with time.
Christ is the only example. If you're looking at me, you've missed The Gospel.If they look at you...and see someone they don't want to be...you've lost them.
