If the basic start of Christianity is the bible, why do we not all agree?

    There are lots of ways to receive a message from the bible. As you read it, it seems to speak to you (for believers). It guides you through life. Yet, when it comes to this very thing, it is also the start of many arguments between fellow believers. If this was supposed to be a tool; why is it seen to be so different within the Christianity religion?

    watch a movie with 5 friends and tell each of them to describe the movie and you will understand the plot but details will be different for everyone. The people could even have different favorite characters in the story. They will note their every single move their favorite characters make and only have vague descriptions of the other characters.

    Similarly, If you read the bible it will speak something to you and when someone else reads it, it will speak something else to them. it all depends on what you have been through in life, what you have are going through in life and what questions you have in your mind at the time. If you think you already know a story or section in the bible then your mind will automatically skip that portion no matter how many times you read it.

    We, as humans also want to be right all the time. So if what i say is right and what you say is right then we should have a discussion to see who is correct. when one side does not have the capacity for discussion or is too stubborn to change then a division is made. In the long run you end up with many weak strands who all think they are correct.

    I think i'm drifting off the question but i hope this gives you an idea.

      To say when 1 reads the bible & "interprets" 1 way & another another, can't you see you're using YOUR MIND vs THE HOLY SPIRIT? 
      "We as humans" are NEVER right (Rm3:4)!
      IF we "WAIT" for "HELP" from ONE MIND CHRIST; ALL would be "WITH ONE ACC

    JESUS SAID "If you love me, KEEP MY "COMMANDMENTS" (John 14:15) and HE wasn't ONLY talking about The Ten Commandments either!  It is as PLAIN AS A NOSE ON ONE'S FACE what the "FIRST" STEP for a "Communication Line" to HIM is!  HE "COMMANDED" us in Matthew 6:33 "SEEK" ye "FIRST" the Kingdom of God and his righteousness and ALL THESE THINGS will be added unto you!" HE basically says the same thing (Witness Scripture; Deuteronomy 19:15; Matthew 18:16; II Corinthians 13:1), in II Chronicles 7:14 "If my people who are called by my name, would humble themselves, and "SEEK MY FACE..."  and in Acts 1:4 when HE "COMMANDED" us to "WAIT" for the POWER (Acts 1:9) who would "lead and guide us into ALL TRUTH" (John 14:26; 16:13)!

    But what is the Kingdom of God?  JESUS SAID in Luke 17:21 "The Kingdom of God is within you" but no one continued reading (READ ALL!)! JESUS SAID in Verse 25 "But FIRST [i] must suffer many things, and be rejected of this generation."  HE "suffered many things" when HE was crucified!  However, before HE DIED, HE "Promised" a HELPER (aka Comforter; aka Holy Spirit) who would "lead and guide us into ALL TRUTH!"  HE sent The Promise (aka JESUS; John 14:26 "IN MY NAME") on the Day of Pentecost (Acts 2:2)! 

    Therefore, the Kingdom of God (aka Holy Spirit) was sent us on the Day of Pentecost and is available to ALL "IF" we "SEEK" ye "FIRST" the Kingdom of God...", "IF" we "humble ourselves and "SEEK HIS FACE," and "IF" we "WAIT" for The Promise (aka Holy Spirit) sent us on the Day of Pentecost. 

    Since JESUS has "ONE MIND" (Philippians 1:7; 2:1-5; 4:2; I Corinthians 1:10; 3:3; 12:4-31;II Corinthians 13:11; Acts 4:32; Romans 15:6; 16:17; Isaiah 52:8; Ezekiel 36;26; 37:22; John 17:11; II Chronicles 30:12; Psalm 133; Jeremiah 32:38-39) it appears MOST have not "OBEYED HIS COMMANDMENTS" (Matthew 6:33; II Chronicles 7:14; Acts 1:4)  yet "proclaim" Christianity? 
    I don't know what you "THINK" you are serving by it's not "THE" JESUS!  I don't know what Holy Spirit you "THINK" you have, but IF you don't "OBEY THESE COMMANDS," it's not "THE" HOLY SPIRIT (aka JESUS)! 

    Don't tell me that *I* judge either, for I've given HIS WORD; therefore, it is not *me,* BUT GOD!

      You don't have to believe it but... the Helper who will lead and guide us into all truth ... is believed to be Muhammad by the Muslims. For you it is the holy spirit. (PS: I had very tough time reading past the caps and punctuation)

      FLESH (Muhammad) "cannot please GOD" (Rm 8:8)!  How can man (M) be equivalent to SPIRIT? How can man (M) be CREATOR of the Universe?  How can CREATOR of Universe LIE? 112 "Who never begats" then how did he create?
      Insulting CAPS won't negate TRUTH!

      Don't understand completely what you are trying to say. Will leave it here.

      Norine Williamsposted 21 months agoin reply to this

      FACT:  You worship Muhammad (man or your holy spirit) vs "THE" SPIRIT or "THE" CREATOR (aka GOD)! 
      In other words Muhammad is your god vs CREATOR of the Universe (aka GOD)!
      I  would suggest you READ II Kings 17:29-41 for better "understanding!"

    For a start if we live according to Christian value, I can kill ur husband and BF and make u my sex slave a beat u up like a bitch. Trust me, it is in the bible. The bible make it very clear, u are allow to take other people's women as the spoil of war and make her ur wife and what I say, was really in practice during the dark ages, where knights go around stealing other people's wife this way and it was totally legal and there are knights that really practice it.

    In addition, within the bible a wife is literally the slave of her husband and Christianity actually allow polygamy, despite European law doesn't allow it, but due to the bible influence, a man can still have as many mistresses and sex slave as he want, as long as he conquer it from other men. For example till 20th century, in Europe husband are allow to pimp his wife out to other men, to financial gain and the wife must obey.

    In fact rate of abuse to women is higher amount Christian house hold, then all other right now.
