""""But, below I read:

What God is capable of doing, and what God actually does, are likely to be two different things. God's work was done at creation, and man has been on his own ever since. The religious always give God the credit for any good thing which happens, and accept any bad thing as some kind of lesson from God, because doing that is a form of worship. In other words, what the religious give God credit for, are just the natural course of events. That is why the bible is full of statements that God did something or other.
And as I read each sentence, I thought "yes", "yes", "yes", "yes"!""""
TS is trying to convince me the KJV and all Bibles are BS, and just a history book. And that Jesus is dead like anyone other person. And that GOD really doesn't have any power other than creating the world? Are you kidding me? And you think this is OK Mondo?
So this is all BS to you people or did GOD intervene?
Every seed after its own kind, or do cows turn into monkeys if you feed them enough bananas?
Lox is the only other Christian here.
And I would like to get to know Lox.
Lox was right, and I rebuked him to be nice, and he said "nice?"
In Jesus our Lord.
You said "TS is trying to convince me the KJV and all Bibles are BS, and just a history book. And that Jesus is dead like anyone other person. And that GOD really doesn't have any power other than creating the world? Are you kidding me? And you think this is OK Mondo?"
Again you are jumping to conclusions as a kneejerk response. I am not trying to convince you, nor did I say, that all bibles are BS. I'm trying to convince you that you have to find the truth of the bible by recognizing the story of continuity which runs through it. If we don't attempt to interpret scripture in the context of the history it records, we won't have a hope in hell of understanding scripture, and we will end up with thousands of doctrinally disagreeing denominations:-)
I am also not trying to convince you that God doesn't have any power other than creation. I am trying to convince you that just because God may be Omnipotent, does not mean that He used His omnipotence to do all the things that superstitious scripture authors give Him credit for.
The story of Adam and Eve in the Garden of Eden, is probably meant to explain that man is out there by himself, living by the sweat of his brow, and should not expect any help from the creator.
The good news which God saw with His foreknowledge, and revealed to Abraham, is that ***MAN*** will eventually achieve everlasting peace on earth, goodwill toward men.
The bible is a story about man, not a story about God.
"I don't speak for God, but somebody has to speak for the bible story."
