Re: A matter of opinion and belief
is wycliffe the voice of god now, then?

why do people pay so much attention to people who interpret the bible and no attention to the bible itself? it's not that hard to read!

Re: insults
is it dangerous to go searching for the truth in the bible and from bible scholars? or just in a way that the sbc doesn't approve?

Re: insults
while i agree that we are meant to uplift each other, i do not think that, in a debate, one must guard against changing another's mind.... that's the very idea.

besides. if your faith is such that one person not believing what you believe will cause it to crumble... you're not going to last very long in this world. EVERYONE is going to say to you 'the whole bible is crap and god is a figment of your love-starved imagination'. why should it be a challenge to your faith if someone says 'i don't like this book or this verse, but it doesn't change the fact that i believe in this god'?

note he only discusses the things on which he is sure of his belief and he doesn't delve into his struggles here. (we're friends irl and discuss this all.the.time.)

Re: Spiritual Comfort Zone
why can't she discuss her thoughts about holding tongues in bible study when you can parent people on how they shouldn't say anything that might rock someone's boat?

...his followers would be allowed in the synagogues but rather, someone who "confessed Christ".

sorry, what's the difference? you're really caught up in your modern dogma of being 'saved'. so if i don't go to a school and get shot at cause i stand up and say 'i believe in god the father almighty, maker of heaven and earth and in....' then i'm not a "confessor" and i have no claim to salvation? get off it.
