So, what's your all-time favorite ficiton novel / non-fiction book?
Fiction - War And Peace, Leo Tolstoy
Non-Ficiton- Bible, GOD
Christians normally will say about the Bible that it is the best ever literature ever written. Written by dozens of different authors spanning six or more thousand years. That to compare with a similar piece of work one would need to combine Milton, Blake and Shakespeare all in one, and yet it is better than those by far in style, pathos, poetry and content. It is written by different people from different nations, Moses was Egyption, Job was not a Jew, inpsired by the WORD of God. Jesus is the WORD of God.
The Holy Bible is acknowledged as the most holy of books by Christians, Jews, Moslems, Hindus and Buddists, in all possibly a thousand million people or if you like a billion people. They come from all the nations of the globe, of all classes and intellect, of low and the highest education, encompassing labourers to professors and some genuis'. And that would include people much brighter than our own Ox.
So why you Matt3483 seek to mock the Almighty is a puzzle to me. The Bible say you have eyes but cannot see, have ears but cannot hear, have a tongue but it mouths violence and vile things; and yet you have been made by God, yet rivile Him. You would rather believe that you have evolved from slime yet take offence if we remind you of your origin. You cannot comprehend the glory of the Almighty because you are a child of perdition, spawned by Satan. You are your father's son.
I hope one day you will turn for the sake of your own soul.
Don't accuse me of preaching, you brought it up and in doing so bring condemnation on your own head.
Actually, you're fool to think that everything in the bible happened exactly as it is written. There are millions of respected commentaries that say that specific stories in the bible are not meant to be taken literally because there was no other answer as to how or why it was possible - and I don't mean that some preacher in the bible belt said it, I mean respected commentaries like Maimonides, Rashi, Nahmanides, etc.Malone, I will ask you one question as you seem incredulouse that anyone left alive actually takes the Bible as factual. If the Bible is Holy and if it is God's WORD, as I believe it is, why would I doubt the veracity of the Almighty?
