Why, since you're obviously so miserable and no one's making you stay here, don't you go somewhere else?
I think what we have to understand about Faith, (and I do suggest that we should be understanding of her position), is that her whole her world view, in fact her whole life, is based on a belief in an so-called inerrant reading of scripture. If she allows herself to move away from that position it essentially destroys her whole sense of what is important in life.
I have heard people say in Bible studies that if one thing in the Bible is found to be in error then we can’t trust anything it says. In other words, instead of worshiping the Word or wisdom of God as embodied in Jesus she and others worship a collection of books, which they essentially believe was dictated by God.
The thing is that she represents a well articulated voice for a minority of Christians that believe as she does. If she leaves the Evolution vs Creation forum we will be left with a discussion group of like thinking people that accept evolution but with little or no input from Biblical creationists.
Sure, as a Christian I find Faith’s views contrary to how I contend the Bible is to be understood. Her understanding of how the Scriptures are to be understood portrays the nature of God to be very much at odds with the nature of God that we see in the person and the words of Jesus. However, she is not alone in her views and it is important that we can have open discussion with people on forums like this so we can at least understand one another’s views, and even learn from them.
I realize that many of you become very frustrated by her posts but she gets equally as frustrated with the posts of the rest of us.
I think it would be a shame to lose her on this forum.
He has told you, O man, what is good ; And what does the LORD require of you But to do justice, to love kindness, And to walk humbly with your God.
