The Bible not just a book


Recommended Posts

The book High Tech Trash claims that, along with the aerospace industry, the computing industry is the most toxic on the planet.  High tech toxic waste is strewn all over the globe, dumped in oceans and on poor communities, festering and killing, all out of sight and mind to Western consumers.  All we see is slick pieces of plastic in slick packaging, flashing lights, and glamour.  But we by no means get off scot-free.

 

It has been said that the worst victims of the North Korean government are not the politically persecuted but the socially adherent majority, who are oblivious to their own erased minds, their deleted humanity.  

 

How is your mind doing?  Your ability to focus, to feel emotions, to communicate thoughts?  Can you feel your heart?  Do you find yourself flicking uncontrollably from one insignificant impression to another? 

 

Gun enthusiasts in America strut around with false confidence.   They believe the war is between us and the government or us and some mob, but the battle is, in fact, for our minds.  For our souls.  And for a great many, the battle has already been lost.  

But...

 

Ecclesiastes 9:4 

“For to him that is joined to all the living there is hope: for a living dog is better than a dead lion.”

 

And that is why I’m telling you this now.  Some of you are seeking obfuscation, playing games.  Some of you are seeking truth.  If you seek truth from the heart Jesus will seek you.  

 

I am here to testify to you that Jesus intervened in my life through dreams.  He knew I was looking for truth but, like many people, I turned away from Him by the conditioning of a sick and twisted culture bent on completely obliterating my soul.  

 

“Religion is corrupt.”  Of course it is asshole everything has been infiltrated because there is a war going on for your soul.   

 

Just like so many others I ran my mouth against the Bible, against God.  I claimed to be “logical.”  “I’m smart, that goes against my intellect...”

 

Why is it that so called intelligent grown adults will turn to some burnout on a YouTube video or a self proclaimed shaman, alien astrologer, or some other garbage for truth?  Or cling to the coattails of a scientific theory, pull something out of their own ass, exalt themselves as a god, but turn their nose up at the Bible without even studying it. 

 

Oh you’ve read the Bible?  But you didn’t study?  SDS means slow down stupid.  The treasures are within the words.  This is no ordinary book. 

 

The Bible is where you are going to find truth.  Not glamour.  It is not fast.  It doesn’t flicker with lights and it isn’t shiny.  It is not cheap.  You won’t look cool.  And people will dismiss you as a lame-o.  

 

But then again the in crowd is never where I want to be.

 

To find the treasures in the Bible you must study.  If you carefully study the words prayerfully you will understand.  

 

If your heart is willing the Holy Spirit will speak to you.  If you are inclined to see you will be shown.  People will come into your life and guide you. You will even be directed to parts of the Bible that apply to you personally.  

 

I promise you that through your intellect and your heart many mysteries will be revealed if you approach it without prejudice.  It will prepare you for the end so you will stand and ascend.

My unwavering and unshakable belief in God and Jesus was formed through an experience which came to me in a "dream".

Immanuel means with us is EL. 

Jesus from the Greek 

G2424

Greek: Ἰησοῦς
Transliteration: Iēsous
Pronunciation: ee-ay-sooce'
Definition: Of Hebrew origin [H3091];
Jesus (that is Jehoshua) the name of our Lord and two (three) other Israelites: - Jesus.

 

Comes from the Hebrew 

H3091

Hebrew: יהושׁע יהושׁוּע

Transliteration: yehôshûa‛ yehôshûa‛

Pronunciation: {yeh-ho-shoo'-ah} yeh-ho-shoo'-ah

Definition: From H3068 and H3467; Jehovah-saved;

Jehoshua (that {is} {Joshua}) the Jewish leader: - {Jehoshua} {Jehoshuah} Joshua. Compare {H1954 } H3442 .

The part you are missing is the rest of the Bible? When Christ resurrects the ones in Matthew:23 what will they call Him? (Eze:37 resurrections)

 

Would that not be a topic for after you have covered all 30 long passages that contain the term 'day of the Lord'. Are there two names for the same location or world's apart.  False Christians can spend hours on a single word in their attempt to stop people from getting to the 'best parts' the ones that don't need any explanation at all.

His name would have been Yeheshua, not Jesus. That was the Greek spelling of his name

Im sure it was the book of Mark that originally ended with the tomb being found open but then later added to. Its details like this that cause doubt in peoples minds as to authenticity.

 

If people want to believe then thats their choice but they cant expect others, who have looked into the subject from other angles, to believe and accept those books as accurate. Lets not forget that they were written decades after the supposed death of Jesus and possibly not even by the people who they are named after. Pseudographia was common.

Have you read the Bible Marpat ?

There is no evidence to suggest that they were not written by the people claimed.

 

This is just supposition on your part.

 

For instance, it appears that the Gospel of Luke was originally written for an audience of one, so there is no question of this being some fabrication of malicious ends, it is just what it says it is and clearly identified a real living relationship between Luke and his reader.

 

Nor does it attempt to hide that it is a written record of oral traditions about Jesus, and indeed, as he says, MANY have written about Jesus, and perhaps a great deal has been lost over time.

 

Quote

 

Many have undertaken to draw up an account of the things that have been fulfilled  among us,  just as they were handed down to us by those who from the first were eyewitnesses and servants of the word.  With this in mind, since I myself have carefully investigated everything from the beginning, I too decided to write an orderly account for you, most excellent Theophilus,  so that you may know the certainty of the things you have been taught.

 

 

The fact is Marpat, you have to use mental gymnastics to refute the Bible because you do not want it to be true.

 

I however merely accept these things as what they are, ancient biographies. I do not need to reject them or invent reasons they might not be true, I can just accept reality as it appears. I have no fundamental issue with the content of the texts, unlike you who has a very strong motivation for attacking these texts, because not to do so, shows that you yourself have lived a life fully in error.


And man will go to great lengths to delude himself that he is right even when all about him tells him the contrary.

Why dont you actually research how it was created? my views are not belief, they are based on information on how the bible was created. This is not mental gymnastics.

 

You take an ancient book at face value yet consider yourself intelligent. You seem to think it give you authority. You dont have 'issues' with the text because for people like you, its a matter of having to believe or suffer for eternity. Lovely choices but that fear keeps large numbers in check. 

 

There is plenty of information out there on this stuff. You can refuse to look because you are afraid of your faith being questioned, and therefore your life, but remember that when you are trying to down talk other people who have had their eyes opened to the reality of the bible.

I have no reason nor strong motivation to doubt the text.  Why should I?

 

You however are motivated to doubt the text because it is a specific threat to you and your life decisions.

 

Interesting eh?

 

By the way I don't particularly consider myself any more intelligent than anyone else... but I guess you think I am for you to mention it. That's interesting too. I wish I could return the compliment but sadly I cannot. The fact is I just like books, researching stuff and finding out what's really going on... I've also had some interesting life experiences which have opened my eyes to a few things...

Not all Christians believe in their faith for fear of eternal damnation, why do a lot of leftists think like that? Not saying you're a lefty, but I see hell come up a lot when discussing Christianity.

Well I see a lot of them telling other people they will go there.

No harm in having healthy scepticism is there? buddha encouraged his followers to question his teachings rather than follow them without question. 

 

Its the people who refuse to ask questions who are blind, trusting books that have been changed over time but claiming they are the written word of God. I didnt realise he needed a human editor.

Why would you be bothered if you don't share their beliefs?

I just just like the arrogance they display, that they consider their beliefs the only truth when investigation into their scriptures show a patchwork of editing and pseudographia. Im sick of these types quoting the bible at others as if it gives them the right to impose on the lives of others, or try and use such verses to give some sort of credibility to their claims.

I don't know how he interprets the Bible.

It would be interesting to know if he has ever looked at it with a critical eye. Buddha didnt expect people to believe his teachings but told his followers to test them.
