Bible Hunters – Do you believe the the Bible is the inerrant unchanging word of God? – YouTube

This was in a comment left by Professor Taboo on a post by Nan here https://sayitnow.wordpress.com/2017/01/06/fiction-or-non-fiction .  I think this is important to hear, see, and understand.  I have been reading the posts and comments on several blogs where at least one person and normally more will argue for the never changing word of God, the idea that god inspired and wrote the bible, or that we can take the magic parts out and the bible now is true and the characters and places are correct.  I disagree with these assumptions.  However if you want to know where I have been spending my time and you have hours and hours to try to follow the comments here are the links.  I find there are different people in these comments.  Those willing to listen and then apply their own reasoning.  Those who run in circles never giving an inch from their position and not content to let others disagree.  Those who answer in nonsense thinking they are somehow connected to god itself.  Also there are people who use overly broad statements they want others to take as fact, which I can’t do.  It is like someone saying to me “all highways are five lanes wide, it is a well know fact and everyone agrees”.   No not every one agrees, and yes some are five lanes wide and some most certainly are not.  So I am enjoying reading the comments.  I also get frustrated reading the comments.  I know which ideas make more sense to me and I like the ones I agree with .   I do recommend if you are interested in these things like I am ( I love a well reasoned position)  I suggest you not only go to this post by Nan https://sayitnow.wordpress.com/2017/01/06/fiction-or-non-fiction , but to the current long debate on Nate’s blog here https://findingtruth.info/2016/12/24/which-nativity-story/ .  Above I mentioned a few broad categories of the people you will find, but really it is a much more diverse group than what I described.  I have to say I personally like it when a person will give their view based on such and then will show the link to the item or what the item says.  I do not like the statement “well most people see it this way”, as that gives me no reason why they see it that way.   I won’t tell you who makes more sense to me in either discussion and who I dislike because you should have the fun of finding out for yourself who you like and disagree with.  I left my couple of comments and then backed out to simply read all the others.  I find some are close to what I said and some are not.   Enjoy in the spirit of learning and thinking.   Hugs

  1. Hi scottie. Great video. I was KJV only and rabidly TR. Finding out the fraudulent nature of the Bible helped push me out of the church altogether

    • I have to say I never thought so much on biblical stuff as I have with the new group of blogs and friends I have found. Even in school being forced to study the bible and do daily chapels I never understood as much as I do reading these posts and comments. I enjoy hearing stories like yours to see how it affected you and the steps you went through to get where you are today. Hugs
