      I believe the bible is based a mishmash of interpretations of real mystic/religious experiences.

      I think religious experiences come from the awakening of kundalini. God is beyond our comprehention so each persons experience is different.

            It's all the same God, it's just different by individual standards. The words are different, the meaning the same.

      I think that the Bible is part folk-memory; part history ~ though probably biased, ie from the point of view of the writer; part re-writing of history; part mythology; part wishful thinking; part belief; part invented story; part dreams; part adaptation of earlier history, myth, etc; part religious belief, based on events real, unreal, historic and mythological; and probably other things too.

      It cannot possibly be the word of God. There are too many errors in it to be the work of an all-knowing super being ~ even if 'he' exists and wants to write a book.

      The religious aspects of it are to be expected as the beliefs of an early people. Most tribes had a god. These were perilous times, when most people were extremely ignorant of the hows and the whys of life.

      Their gods filled the gaps and so, quite understandably, they had to be included in their tribal folk stories and histories. People thought that good things were heavenly rewards and that bad things were heavenly punishments. This is clearly superstition in action.

        When the the consensus tell us that  90% of the world's people believe or think there is likely a God, makes it  a valid question.

        Or

        Atheist forum would not have most of their hits, if it was not mostly about Religion on them. To me it makes up for an ugly marriage, when obsessing about Religion and while each main Religion claiming to be all, to the point where the USA claimed Atheist to be a Religion.

      Wll if the Bible is THE word of g/God:
      a. which g/God because history has recorded the belief in nearly 10,000 deities and sub-deities (including aliens and Dawkin's).

      and

      b. if by a g/God they mean THE Creator, then sadly, he didn't say very much considering the size and intricacy of this universe; and for some odd reason needed people to write his words down, partitioned by literary means as chapters and verses, then repeated - to the point of exhaustion - until they have no real meaning.

      My vote is: Nah. Bible is not THE word of Creator.

    Yes I believe it is the Word of God! I grew up in the church and I experienced both truth and hypocrisy. I know God created us and He can use us to convey His message. We all have a choice to believe, He gives us that choice. Of course are people now and in the past who use the Bible for their on reasons. Our consciense which God has given us, lets us know when we are hearing the truth and when something is wrong we just lie to ourselves. People want to be comfortable in their sins, thats why the Bible is sodisregarded. The road to heaven is narrow, true christians do not abuse the Bible or change itfor their pleasure. If you look at men who wrote most of the Bible they were persecuted, because themajority of people do not want to live righteously

    Am I sure it wasn't God talking, concern which part?

      I see where you are coming from and the point you are trying to make.

    Concerning the New Testament?  One question rings loudest.

      Why did the council choose only these letters to be included in the canon and burn all the rest. (Metaphorically speaking).
      As far as the NT is concerned,I find it sufficient to read only those words written in red letters.
      I say this because, no one can interpret what someone else has said or would say and still be 100% correct. This includes the disciples.
     
      As was written that the Devil tempted Jesus in the desert?
      Why couldn't the devil appear to a person in the same way professing to be bringing an angel of God bringing skill and understanding  in discerning scripture.
       I think things like this was prophesied to happen.
      It seems to me that any spirit which interprets the word of God to be saying something that it clearly does not say would be a lying spirit.
      As the story goes, while being tempted by Satan, Jesus kept saying it  “ is written”.  He didn't say "we can interpret the written word this way" or that way.
      Scripture has been interpreted for over 1640 years. In many instances the truth of scripture has been buried  so deeply under these interpretations.   that we can hardly understand the words which are actually written.

        Good question. Obviously, the ability to breathe had to be learned. Our physical bodies had to learn over countless generations how to breathe and process air and food, how to heal and fight infection, how to balance and walk, etc. Basically how to function and survive in a physical world.

        The same goes for conscious beings with free will. Knowledge and wisdom cannot just be given. It must be learned. Learned through experience. Trial and error. The only way we can learn is by living and experiencing free will for ourselves, which allows for conscious decisions right or wrong, which makes possible the potential for evil.

        The bible accomplished exactly what it needed to. We here are all aware of it and the God it speaks of. It doesn't supply us with all the answers we'll ever need. It just offers guidance. Life itself is the teacher. So, He gave us all of existence AND a book. What more do you need?

            Yes
            If I could have visit and witnesses the virgin birth and all Jesus miracles and listen to his words, then maybe yes, I could join his membership and subscribed to his book, And If I took my time machine then went forward to 300AD into the future and see the first bible and how it was written as Jesus did not write anything

            Jesus may have me. if I could have seen him walk on water

            Still too many maybes and too other super hero claiming the same thing without sound proof

            Notice what you're saying? Notice how you separate what's natural from what's a human product/invention? Aren't humans natural as well? Wouldn't that also make anything created by humans natural? But you and I and everyone else instinctively draw a distinction between man-made and natural. Are we suggesting things born of the conscious human mind are somehow unnatural? Why is that do you think?

              We can observe all or most of  natural order of things and also the highly unlikely things, we can call miracles, as most off us experience from the odd time to time, yet there is always a reason for everything

              I live mostly in a natural way including my surrounding area. Most of mankind is unhappy because they are living in an unnaturally environment

                But what defines what is natural and what isn't? Does man-made = unnatural? Supernatural? If so, why? Humans are natural too. Made of the same stuff as everything else. We come from the same place as everything else. So what makes what we create/imagine unnatural/supernatural?

                  If you think Per ca-pita North America leaving the largest carbon foot print on the face of the earth is a natural thing. Then you have a lot of studying to do with the different from sympathetics and natural products

                  When I see a man or men or god moving around like super hero's. I will repent and join your fight club, for now that would be unnatural

                    That's my whole point, Castlepaloma. What we create with our conscious human minds doesn't fit with the rest of nature. Human consciousness is an anomaly that doesn't fit the rest of the natural picture. We create waste that doesn't break down, usually for some sort of self-serving reason. We make waste. We impose our will on others. Wipe out animal habitats for our own gain. No other living creature is anything like us. We're uniquely destructive to the world around us.

                    I'm saying we are not natural. And even though all of the science-minded here see humanity as a natural progression of evolution and see the conscious human mind as a natural evolutionary product as well, there's still an instinct to deem everything created by this conscious human mind as something other than natural. Why is that do you think? According to the strictly science-minded/no God/causal-only view, humans and human consciousness is natural, yet we in no way resemble anything else found in nature beyond our physical forms.

    If God is the "Author of all things, Good or Evil." If God is inspiration, good or evil...then everything which has EVER BEEN WRITTEN...is written by the hand of God. We merely hold the pen...or in our case, hit the keys.

      I think we're the one exception to that and I think that's the whole point. We have free will, which is basically just a will outside of God's. We have the ability to consciously decide and freely choose what we do, which may or may not be in line with God's will, thus making both good and evil possible. We hold our own pens and hit our own keys.

      Just look at Genesis. In chapter 1 literally everything did exactly what God said, to the letter. Including the humans at the end. Be fruitful and multiply, fill the earth, subdue it, establish dominance in the animal kingdom. Then it says He looked on all He made and saw that it was good after all of that. By 10000 BC we know homo sapiens accomplished everything on that list. Done. It took numerous generations and a meta-will outside of their individual selves to accomplish the task, but they accomplished it.

      Then look at chapter 2. Adam is not told what to do. He is simply given one specific thing to not do, and then does it anyway. Could everything else in existence have really accomplished everything commanded by God if everything was as capable as Adam to disobey?

      From that point on God's carving rules into stone, speaking through prophets, splitting seas, raining frogs, sending floods, all to accomplish what could so easily be done before. He won't override our free will to choose or that would undermine the whole point of free will. So he has to do other things to get our attention or to reach a desired outcome.

    It almost seems like it was a tool for controling a losing war against individual freedoms. Rome was falling apart before Constantine formed the council of Nicea and had the bible edited to suit said purpose, it's a ruse basically.
