You are correct...Christians and Jews have different interpretations. The Jews are still waiting on their Messiah! Dumbass!

Toneman, the answer to your question that no one will answer, is because, precisely of what habazoot said: most don't take the Bible literally, (as I do), and thus, if everything is up to private interpretation, you get numerous different 'flavors' of Christianity, which really are no Christianity at all, but perversions based on man's ideas, not God's word.
And it isn't about being 'good' just in case, because being good doesn't get one to heaven-only faith in the finished work of Jesus Christ on the cross, when He paid the debt of sin for the world: "Whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved" (Rom 10:13)
As for how God knew what a Day was-He made it, He decided what it would be, just as whe He breathed the breath of life into Adam, and in that breath, all the functions of the cells in his body began in perfect form, as they do now. All that was necessary for life, he created, beyond the cells to the DNA and RNA, all the cellular respiration neede

Dear Toneman (Why Toneman?)

I want to answer this question:

Finally, answer me this last question: If the Bible is the true word of God defining precisely how we should follow him, why are there countless flavors of Christianity?


-------------------------------

My answer to that is yes there is one true "word" of god but remember who he gave it to. He have it to us Human. And as you know or not since you asked, we humans are subjective. Very subjective. We don't see eye to eye with our neighbors. Because of this we have disagreements because of this we have as you say "different flavors" of christianity.

Does that answer your question??

And seriously why Toneman??

I chose mine because I was smashed drunk like donkey with a vodka bottle up my @ss. And the bunny is from Wallace and Gromit I made it after I saw the how to on the DVD and I thought it was cool achievement. (yay me)

So why toneman? I would like a very legit answer to this legit questio

habbazoot, what the hell are you talking about 'check please'? Like all Christians, you avoid the pointed questions.

amaqdrinker, I assume nothing! As I explained, I did grow up in a Southern Baptist church. I have been 'Born Again.' I have believed the same things you believe currently. So I do understand Christianity.

I have read the Bible. I have also read large parts of the Holy Koran. The Bible itself starts off with contradiction. The first two books of Genesis have two totally different accounts of the creation of the world. Don't believe me? Read it!

toneman, i do know about the Torah and the Old Testamate. I read it, after all.

you said the Bible, and The Torah is only a small fraction of it. The major part of the Christian religion. and i know some sects do take it word for word, but the majortiy of christians do not.
smartass


and to answer your second question: its not.
check please.

You guys are thinking to hard.

He's GOD, drat rotation and what-not. He's like chuck norris except in my opinion, GOD > Chuck. Anyway GOD makes his own rules and he could do anything he wants to do and that's because he is GOD.

So how did he know??

My answer: I don't know, Let's go ask him and to ask him we go to heaven which is why the winner gets to go to heaven.

toneman, you're just being ignorant. you are assuming more about people's beliefs than anyone on this thread. if you are not a religious or spiritual person and have not taken the time to actually try and understand an individual who is, then please keep your mouth shut. excuse me, your keyboard.

A day to us is but a blink of an eye to god.

or some crap. That's how it was explained to me because I asked that very question to a youth leader... I still am not satisfied with the answer.
That's why I decided to be Buddhist.
In essence we are really all trying to go to the same place, we are just taking different paths to get there.

christians have old navy, atheists have hot topic. christians have the pope, atheists have richard dawkins. christians believe in Jesus, who was a jew, atheists believe in Darwin, who was agnostic. if god didn't exist, there wouldn't be so many constant reminders of his non-existance. alas, ajd's 20-someodd posts are basically the same crap spewed somewhat religiously.

One thing I seriously don't get is why religious people must classify their Gods with a gender.
If it is an all-powerful metaphysical being, why does it need a mammal-based gender?

A "day" is not attributed to a 24 hour earth day.
God does not reside on earth.
Read 2 Peter 3:8
Bible is written for simple, short lived creatures by a creature ("God") that exists on a vast time scale.

On a parting note, nearly every religion aside from Buddhism relies on Pascal's Wager. We don't know if there is a God but we'd better be good just in case.

Finally, answer me this last question: If the Bible is the true word of God defining precisely how we should follow him, why are there countless flavors of Christianity?

I'm sure that this question will remain unanswered just like the previous. Christians would rather regurgitate crap that is thrown at them from behind the pulpit than consider any other alternative. It is impossible to have an objective view when you are brainwashed!

He could have created the earth first and then the sun and the solar system. or maybe the sun last. Maybe he didnt start the earth spinning until the very end, therefore causing the first day. hm? who knows.

I just don't get that if God is sooo important, than why so many people have gone their entire lives without knowing of his existence. Isn't it unfair that we get to know of his existence and others do not?

It's easy for the Non-religious:
What God?

"I will also argue that there not a single human being on the face of this planet that can make that determination. "

I agree. I don't believe there is a God, but if there is an (or some) all-powerful super-intelligent God(s), I wouldn't know.

The problem with the terms "Athiest" and "Agnostic" are the simple fact that most people like me are halfway in between the two.
I think I-A-B should have an "Agnathiest" option.

Then again, I suppose Agnostic covers the humans who admit they aren't perfect & don't have all the answers to the universe entirely.
Should I switch my religion listing to Agnostic on my profile?

ajd121, I agree. It's also true that if one person claims to speak to spirits today, he is a kook. If there is a whole group that can do so they are a congregation, right?

But why would it take so long? If God is truly Omnipotent (All powerful) wouldn't he have the power to do it in a nano-second?

You hear voices in your head 2000 years ago you're a prophet, You hear voices in your head today you're insane.

Habbazoot, you do nothing more that display your own ignorance. Actually, I grew up in the church. And I can tell you the some Christian sects do take the Bible very literally. I will agree with you that there is no proof of God's existence or vice versa. I will also argue that there not a single human being on the face of this planet that can make that determination.

In fact, Judaism uses their own form of the Bible, though it is not called the same. The Torah is the first few books of the Old Testament. Perhaps you should check you own facts, smartass.
