Is the bible really a book of order?
Many times I often hear people talking and saying that God has given us orders through the bible...then I just think, God never gave us any orders instead he us gave commands that will guide us from all the bad so that should we follow his commands, we would be free from sin and we would be successful in life. Just a quick example, God instructed Adam and Eve not to eat from a certain tree in the garden of Eden so that they would not die, but they chose to anyway and they died yet they would've lived forever. We have been given a manual of life, the Holy bible. (Psalm 37:4)
According to the bible Adam lived to be 930 years! Noah was five hundred years old when he had children! He lived to be 950 years old! Although that might not be "forever" it's damn near close when you consider how today lots of us don't live to be 70-80 years old.
God made man and man made religion.
I believe if one studies how the bible was "put together"/canonized and what was going on at the time it was put together it becomes more difficult to believe (everything) that was written by these men to control their society at the time.
Samson killed (1000) men with just the jawbone of a donkey. Did they come at him one at time? Did he take any breaks?
1 Kings 11:3 Solomon 700 wives and 300 concubines!
Can you imagine a woman having 700 husbands and 300 "boy toys"? Not a single book in the bible is written by a woman. Even today a woman can't become a priest just because she's a woman!
Exodus 31:15 "Whoever does any work on the Sabbath day shall be put to death."
Leviticus 20:9 "For anyone who curses his father or his mother shall surely be put to death."
The vast majority of "believers" tend to "cherry pick" which verses of scripture they want to follow. Imagine how many people would have been put to death if just these two scriptures had been observed!
The Bible is a recipe book for spiritual attainment.
The first 5 books were written by Kabbalists in a coded language. Now, each of us can learn what the true meaning is and what it's all about.
It's all about love. This is what Christ was talking about.

What proof is there that Jesus roamed the Earth as a man for 33 years? Why is there nothing written in the Bible about his life except his birth and miraculous work? How come he doesn't have a book in the Bible written...
