Really mike?
Here is my original statement in post #105. 'The Bible records falsehoods such as Satan's conversation with the woman in the garden (Gen 3:1-5). Divine inspiration doesn't mean that the falsehood is true, but inspiration guarantees the accuracy of the lie.


I'll rephrase what I said to make it easier for you to comprehend.

Divine inspiration quarantees the fact that what Gen 3:4 says Satan said to the woman was really said by Satan. Is that any easier for you to understand?

BTW...I am not antagonistic towards biblical truth...I am, however, antagonistic towards your version of biblical truth...HUGE DIFFERENCE.
See post #111.

I'd rather know who you think wrote that part... God inspired a writer 1000 years later then that version was torn and burned so Ezra rewrote it and you still think Satan actually said those words? Sounds naive to me but to each his own!

This whole new "all non-Christians are anti-christ" movement... are Jews to be considered "anti-christ"?

Genesis and the rest of the Pentateuch were written by Moses. Various theories have been going around for ages about who wrote the Pentateuch. Those theories are all attacks upon the word of God.



Did Moses Write Genesis? - Answers in Genesis


And this is off topic.

Accept for the gravity of our thoughts and acts.

Study to show yourself approved unto God; a workman that need not be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth!

You will have to stop believing and retaining the lies, if you truly desire to hear the Gospel.

The process of division means: cutting-off or separating the evil from that which is good.

And both are present for our
Teaching, Correcting, Rebuking, and Training in the Way, Truth, and Life of Righteousness.

...but in vain do they worship me, teaching the commandments of men.

Read Ezra.... It's a compelling story about those books being rewritten. Especially if you take into account ezra's character and role.

Off topic? Goes to the evidence of antichrist from the bible. The whole OT is Anti-christ. IMO.

That which is not of a spirt of love, is a spirt of NON-love or "Anti-Christ".

Christ pointed to the Father.
The Father (God) IS love.

Truth marches on. If it is of LOVE, agape love... it is OF GOD.
God isn't interested in labels we wear.
He is the master Heart surgeon who will do a good work in each of us.
It's His creation, He's responsible for it, and I have full faith that He will see it through 100%.

Focus on love.

peace,
sparrow
You're such a smart little bird.

Genesis is a compilation of scattered writings (passed down for generations) by Moses. Exodus, Leviticus (Moses' Law) and Numbers are written by him. Deuteronomy was started by Moses, completed by Joshua who took leadership after Moses' death...Moses couldn't have given an account of his own death. AISI

Peace!
