Reader comment on item: A Christian Boom
in response to reader comment: Your logic assumes the preconcept that all Humans are Sinners which is a very foolish concept.

Submitted by Servant of Christ (United States), Oct 31, 2007 at 20:20

The writers of the Bible could not have imagined about Time since they did not comprehend it at that time.

Or because it was irrelevant.

Even if Moses did not understand the concept of time, how does that pertain to the story at all?

God could not create air because nobody went to space that time and Space without Air was unimaginable to them. Air itself was not seen by them as a life giving ingredient at that time.

Because air was unable to be explained therefore God did not do it? The Israelites understand the concept of breathing and that's all that was necessary to understand life.

Rains were thought of coming from a reservoir from the Heavens not from clouds.,

Actually the Bible makes no mention of early creation until Noah's Flood. And the Hebrew of concept of Heaven included levels. The first level was the sky (ie. the clouds).

Day and Night was not conceived as of regional but abstract.

There was only one region.

( Judgemnet day can be judgement Night since the Other Hemisperists will be haviing Night that time. If it's a heavenly day without explanation it defies Logic since it can be infinite earth days and infinite night days. And of course without Night there is no day. )

Judgment day doesn't take place on earth. It takes place after creation is undone and renewed. And nonsense, time can continue without night and day.

God was talking to Adam,Eve,Cain,Abel etc., in which Language? If it was the original language how all the earths thojusands of languages differ fundamentally during a brief 6000 years.

That's irrelevant in which language God spoke to them. Read on in Genesis to find out how languages began to develop.

If Adam and Eve were the only couple then Cain should have married his own sister which itself is contradictory to the biblical morality.

Not so, for the Law of Moses (which concerned incest) was given several millenia after.

Why God has created all these contradicting statements and absurdities in the Bible if he was so omnipotent ,eternal and the creator of the whole universe and the whole souls how could he make an incomprehensible religious Books for which we are wasting a lot of times and energies which could have used for other creative works.

See above?

ANYBODY CLAIMING THAT HE IS THE WAY TO THE HEAVEN IS A SALESMAN (NOT GOD) TELLING THAT JOIN ME I WILL SHOW YOU THE KINGDOM OF HEAVEN.

So Jesus was a salesman? I desire evidence for your claim :D.

It is cheap marketting technique to harvest Poor Souls with Crap and Bla Bla Bla....

How can souls be harvested if they're eternal?

(Salesman: Come on believe in me., I will wash your sins, I will give you heaven and Grace but believe me without questioning., Do u want Hell or Heaven, believe in Me for heaven otherwise itis hell for you ... understand...)

Ummm... Jesus did tell us to test and question.

Dear friends, do not believe every spirit, but test the spirits to see whether they are from God, because many false prophets have gone out into the world. (1 John 4:1)

Test everything. Hold on to the good. (1 Thess. 5:21).

The presumption that Jesus told us to blindly follow is unfounded and unbiblical.

Your statement makes Christ sound like a villain. It's more like this.

Man was doomed because he sinned and therefore it is MAN'S FAULT. Jesus came to offer a way out.

So we messed ourselves up and Jesus came to save. If we choose not to let him save us then is it his fault? No.

You are trying to market a very old undated Doctrine which cannot stand the reasoning of the rational mind.

I beg that you rationally examine the Bible instead of unfounded biases.

Let your belief give you peace and Happiness.. Amen.,

Regards,

Shri Devi.

God Bless

Btw, why is irrational to assume that man is evil. If my concept of God is made up, therefore an invention of man, then the sufferings of this world is still our fault and man is still evil (actually, since God does not exist, there is no evil and good). Be consistent!

Submitting....
