Servant of christ

Reader comment on item: A Christian Boom
in response to reader comment: John :D Israel, Egypt, Flood, etc

Submitted by John of Science (United Kingdom), Feb 13, 2007 at 08:59

My point is, the Egyptians, Sumerians, and whoever would not have been the only nations to write down the Flood. It wasn't, "All the nations got the Flood idea from so and so". It was "The Flood happened and everybody passed down the Flood story for one thousand years and it was distorted". The point is, each ancient civilization had its Flood story yet known surpass the Biblical Flood. The Biblical Flood contains the exact dimensions for Noah's Ark, a more detailed account, no perversion within the story, and the dimensions are exactly the same as those scientists predict it would have to be.

Let's be realistic... First you say Sumerians and now you say Egyptians. Don't forget the fossil bone beds.

If a worldwide flood did happened then the egyptians would have wrote it down.

My point is, you can neither prove nor disprove the Flood. However, if it was in fact true, then so many questions would be answered.

I already have.

Again, let's be serious. Each human has a God-given characteristic called a conscience. Because Egypt and Israel agree on "killing is bad", does not mean Israel forged their religion from a book. If you examine the book of Exodus, Leviticus, and Deuteronomy in which the Ten Commandments are given, you will see that many other commandments are given that are unrelated to other nations but are scientifically healthy and morally right.

Still Moses robbed the egyptians ideas.

May I ask whether or not you had faith in him? Did you treat God like a vending machine in which you would not believe unless he did things for you? Or did you disbelieve because of the "evidence" of evolution or the pull of this world? Or perhaps it may be difficult times or tragedies? Did you try to conform to the person God wanted or was it the person the world wanted?

I had some faith in him. The only reason i left was because they was so much suffering in the world and if they was God he would have done something about it.

The prophecies will come soon.

Forget about the prophecies, I seen about 300 on a christian website.
