@grahame, ... the bible is full of contradictions and was written over a very long period of time none of which took in to account the world we live in today, but I think its adaptable enough that one could work their lifestyle around it...
That is a feeble cop-out. The bible is supposed (by the religious) to be the revealed word of an unchanging, eternal, omniscient, omnipotent god.
So how can it change over a long period of time? if God doesn't change, surely his word doesn't change?
The God of the bible is probably the meanest, most racist, bigoted, downright evil being ever documented.
well no its not, some of the bible is the word of god a lot of it is the words of others who have had some sort of impact by god of their followers.
I diddnt say the bible has changed i said time has changed so therfore what was meant then doesnt exactly have the same meaning now. our lifestyle has changed so its hard to follow the letter of the law to its true meaning, and also its true meaning is open to interpretation.
what I meant was because the bible contains so many different points of view one could adapt oneself to it in todays world.
is that a feeble cop out? maybe and to be honest I have a feeling irrelvant of what I say you will have a ready made counter making it impossible for me to put accross a justified argument as by definition thats what it would be (an argument) and as neither can be proved it would end in a pointless exercise in fuitility. so my views are as such, Im not going to try and justify them i was merely answering your very valid questions to the best of my ability. you can judge me for that and indeed judge god if thats what helps you get through the day and I will wish you all the best in your life.
