Trans, my point is not to throw out the Bible. The Bible is as true today as the day that the KJV flew down from the sky on the wings of a dove.

My point is that a faithful devoted Christian doesn't need to read it if he has a relationship with Jesus Christ. Even if he has only read one gospel that would be more than enough. I thought my point was simple.

How can it take 50 years to understand one book?

What's there of god then? This already been done before, when in Nicea THEY decided what is holy and what is not. What scriptures are of god and what are heresy.


Nihil novi anter sol.



Sorry, I just had that vision of the god's chuckle over this idea...
No, what did I just say. They have to decide for themselves.

Rites? Not talking about rites at all.

Rules? Not talking about rules at all.

God? You ought to know by now that I'm not talking about god. In fact, saying that means you missed the entire point of the post.

More likely that you are reading words that are NOT of Jesus but of the "precepts and doctrines of men."

Even pagans like me know that Jesus was the Word -- not your ever-so-precious collection of old pamphlets.
