THE BIBLE (New Testament this time)

It was written a few hundred years after Christ died by people with an agenda to convert as many into the Christian flock.

Jim Bakker, Jimmy Swaggart, etc all had/have agendas too.

The four books contradict themselves in many places (though I'm not an NT scholar), because much of it if not all of it is subjective, not objective.

It has been 60 years since the Holocaust and people with agendas write it didn't happen. And there are millions of papers and thousands of actual pictures and movies that prove it did happen. There are only one or two historical documents written during Jesus' lifetime that even mentions him, or someone like him.

I wonder what word of mouth over 200 years would produce for the bible writers. My wife changes what I said after 10 minutes sometimes.

Also, it wasn't written in English, when translated it got another dose of subjectivity by those with an agenda.

Everyone who wrote the NT and OT believed in a flat earth and that the universe revolved around the earth. Dinosaurs weren't discovered until the early 1800's.

How can anyone take the bible literally. It boggles my mind.


  1. Exactly!!!
    I was raised Catholic, and have not been to church in the last 13 years, unless attending a wedding, funeral, etc. How can everyone take these stories that were passed down through all these years seriously? Some old guy wanted people to believe what he believed, & here's your bible!
    Thank God (no pun intended) I am not the only one that questions this type of thing!

  2. Anyone who thinks the bible is a history book is not playing with a full deck.
