Well when you have thread subjects on Adam and Eve being a myth - people set themselves up to the charge of discrediting the Bible.

Well I believe you discredit it by your literalist take upon it.

Because most Christians believe that their "personal relationship"=direct revelation from G-d. So they can't be wrong about anything. G-d told them.

Pcamps said God speaks to him also. He puts his faith in what is spoken to him internally - more so than what's in the Bible.

Yes it does, your literalist take upon it nullifies scripture.

Here's an example


14Indignant because Jesus had healed on the Sabbath( the literalism they are enslaved by offending them)the synagogue leader said to the people, “There are six days for work. So come and be healed on those days, not on the Sabbath.”

15The Lord answered him, “You hypocrites! Doesn’t each of you on the Sabbath untie your ox or donkey from the stall and lead it out to give it water? 16Then should not this woman, a daughter of Abraham, whom Satan has kept bound for eighteen long years, be set free on the Sabbath day from what bound her?”

17When he said this, all his opponents were humiliated, but the people were delighted with all the wonderful things he was doing.

This is what you don't seem to understand.

If everyone was governed by whatever spirit spoke to them, and no Bible existed - there would be utter chaos as to who God is. Would people even seek God if no Bible existed?

People don't have a relationship with the Bible. We understand the essential role the Bible plays in our relationship with God.

The Bible is God's written revelation of Himself throughout human history.

More so than your understanding of the bible is correct.

Evangelical Fundamentalists are not the last word on the meaning of scripture this is what this thread is about. Why do you think you are so right about scripture and everyone who see's the meaning of it is discrediting the scripture ?.



Pcamps believes the scriptures testify of Jesus Christ which scripture says is the Word of God. He also believes according to scriptures that Jesus Christ is in him. He also believes Jesus Christ is Lord. He also searches the scripture daily.
