Bryan,
I posted something at the “Philosophy” board… I’d be curious of your thoughts

Here’s a good first stumbling block, because to me a Biblical inerrantist is exactly like a wooden-disconnected from life-literalist

IMO these “Bible inerrantist’s” are doing nothing but insulting one of the great basic collections of documents in Western society.  They are doing nothing but perverting it to support their own narrow-minded positions and often their hatred of other humans who don’t live by their narrow and misguided positions.  They refuse to study its history, its origins and the used it has been put to. These people only seem to accept the idea of sinners being stoned for their sins and not the forgiveness that is the basis of the the Bible’s long term power.

The God they are creating is the vengeful one not the loving one.  According to their own precepts it appears their Devil has won with them.  (Yea, I grew up as a Baptist and can preach like one at times.  mad )

Hmmm,

If we are now talking about the Bible as a great book… well, that’s what they keep telling me.
All I know for sure is every time I open it randomly, and do some reading (I’ve done it many times), I’m put off, sometimes appalled, only very occasionally impressed.
So fine, it’s got a value - if you insist - but not anywhere near Earth Sciences, or Climatology, or any of that serious discussion. 

Want to do something useful with the Bible, use it to help the masses of people pull their collective heads out of their willfully ignorance steadfastly oblivious asses and start getting real about what we are doing to our children’s physical world !  angry

What I am refering to is that is the single collection of books that had the greatest influence on Western Society.  If you study it as a historical document and see how it was applied to being various groups of people together either to support the cirrent elities or to oppose them I think you will be pursuing one of the most important studies in political history.  Look at it various components as political tracts, not the word of any god and explore the conditions surrounding their orgination and later use.

I do believe that all christian believe in bible, but not all have a strong faith in Jesus Christ. Now a days, there been a lot of religion out there in the world and they believe in bible. The religion is not important cause religion cant save us, its our faith in him.
