Anyone who uses the "it's just your interpretation" card are implying the bible has no doctrinal truth at all, that all our opinions are just interpretation.
O the wrath of God...waxing hotter and hotter every day.
Your believing that others get it wrong is correct. The thing you do not get is that their is nothing to get! Read what came before the bible, and find out why your mind is religious. The bible is a hateful controlling fake.
the bible IS so badly interpreted by the flock that it's beyond disturbing. So to is that teachings are rarely applied inwardly. Anyone who is in love with their soapbox and does not apply the teachings to their own lives, is already in hell.
Clearly a sinner having a problem with someone obeying Jesus's command to judge others. This stupid female reads "judge not lest ye be judged" without realizing it was to make people worthy to judge others, "cast out first the beam out of thine own eye, and then shalt thou see clearly to pull out the mote that is in thy brother's eye" (judge others!), and, "Do ye not know that the saints shall judge the world? and if the world shall be judged by you, are ye unworthy to judge the smallest matters?" (judge others!). She's joined the rest of the world who've misunderstood the gospels to protect their sins from judgment, a world Jesus said to not befriend: "whosoever therefore will be a friend of the world is the enemy of God." (bible)
Wait till God gives you judgment.
Your little socialite Christ fed to you in church is a nonbiblical Christ built from fantasy thinking on select passages. Get reading the rest of scripture which sheds light on those select passages and puts them into proper meaning, before judging me with a fake Christ.
What a colossal shame in heaven, you are.
The bible is full of doctrinal truth. The problem is that there are 100,000 private interpretations that is hiding that truth. Too many people (including you) can read words, but do not see what they should be hearing with their heart...
If they are your OPINIONS, then they are not fact - they are your interpretation of the facts.
If you could quote a fact as it stands in the Bible and not have to explain what it means, then there would be much less debate and dispute. Unfortunately there seem to be endless passages where, if you question it, people say, "oh but that actually means....."
That means human beings are guessing what it means - unless you're divinely inspired?
That's life Marisa, history is not a mirror ball to the past but an artefact tainted by its author/s and again each artefact tainted by those artefacts before and so on we regress. Common sense will never prevail.
I would say it has some truth and some mythology. One's relationship with God is personal and within. It doesn't come out of a book - any book. The only thing a book, even the Bible, can do is point you in the right direction.
For you to imply that the wrath of God is upon the rest of us for thinking other than you do is arrogance so extreme you would do well to heed your own advice.
In another hub, closed for reply, I noticed you have an affinity for James 4:4. How blindly some choose to pin the tail on the donkey. Sir, i am sure you will not mind me calling you Sir. So is it the believers whom are not of this world and then what of us here, how do we strike with God's right hand and punish the sinners. Or should we let them wait for his almighty judgement? Do not point the finger, there will be three pointing back at you.
sa282h - you might want to check out Rev. Dr. John Shelby Spong, a member of the Episcopal clergy. Interesting read. You might also want to check out ucc.org and search for their views on the bible, also an interesting concept.
UGH this guy again? when will he learn to stop spweing his BS and let us go on in peace?
Maybe I'm just lazy. But, there wouldn't be so many to judge if we focused more time helping, encouraging, and lifting people up out of the crap that they're in. Just seems a little more efficient way to go about it.
Believe it or not, I don't think "it's just your interpretation" is going to cut it.
To believe the bible has any factual evidence is already defined by science and philosophy. Certain events have happened and some events were made up.
That makes the bible a history and mythology book. Some bits and pieces are facts and some bits are pieces of mystical basis.
The fact that religion exists shows you one thing. It clearly demonstrates the power and control that is embedded in society.
Some people believe religious beliefs are innate in humans. Which is beyond any comprehension, because beliefs are formed based on facts acquired by the 5 senses of the body and an understanding of reality.
If you don't believe reality exists, then obviously your mind isn't right. If you live in a fantasy world long enough, how can you tell what's real and what is fake?
The bible wants you to believe in a higher power, supposedly guiding you through your life. There is NOTHING guiding your life, except YOU.
You create thoughts, you execute thoughts into actions. That is self-guiding. When something goes wrong, it isn't for you to blame 'god' or claim it was god's will.
If you cannot guide your own life, through the use of your conscience....who's life are you living?
If you're not guiding your life using your conscience...What's that say about being self-responsible for your actions?
Prisons are full of people that already knew what you are teaching.
They were following their conscience when they were robbin and killin and raping. Too many people can not follow their own conscience.
The reality is that we can all do better when we are not self worshipin during our self delusion of knowing everything.

Why are so many "Christians" the fist to judge others, when the Bible tells us not to?Luke 6:37 "Judge not, and ye shall not be judged: condemn not, and ye shall not be condemned: forgive, and ye shall be forgiven:"

From what I've read in the bible, we are to identify wrong behaviours and speak up but we are not to play judge because that makes us prideful and reluctant to take the beam out of our own eye. Many Christians insist that it is their duty to judge and they end up judging everyone about everything....

Why do people feel that they have a God given right to judge others?In my experience reading alot of the answers around christianity, I have found that the very people who profess to be christians are casting the first stone. Not everyone. But I have to honestly say the majority from what I've...

What is a true Christian?I am discouraged by the number of fake Christians I have known. They attend church on Sundays, read the Bible and even wear crosses around their necks. But they:1. Own expensive cars and homes.2. Give little to charity.3. Rarely donate their time4. Look down their noses at...
