You atheists are the ones who always bring up the bible. What’s the point if you don’t believe in God. The bible is for theists.[/quote]
This thread is about misconceptions in the Bible and this thread was started by a theist. OP a Christian brought it up to engage non believers on what he perceived to be misconceptions.
Correct this thread. But seriously, why the Bible if you don’t believe in God? That’s kind of mandatory for it to make any sense at all.
I gotta go run for a while though. Important things need to get done.[/quote]
Why the Bible what?
Why we ask questions about your worldview?
Why we want to know how you compile your beliefs?
Why we want to discuss and debate topics related to this book?
For me it’s pretty simple. You guys form most of your opinions based on the fact this book is true and is indeed the word of god. You vote on legislation that align with your holy book that effects us all. If you kept your toys at home and didn’t force anyone else to play with them, no one would really care.
This book has a trickle down effect on the whole of society. Just look at this forum.
You guys keep sex education down, a proven indicator for fighting teen pregnancy and STDs based on this book
You guys prevent the legalization of gay marriage based on this book
You guys distort attitudes towards human sexuality in society based on this book.
So a better question is, why would you expect us not to care about what the Bible says? [/quote]
therajraj, you questions are directed at pat but if I may interject, many of the teachings and propagation of the Bible are not, in fact, Bible truths. Sadly, this has lead to some very passionate, mislead individuals. The Bible and its true teachings are very reasonable and beneficial to society as a whole, if they are applied.
