I Am Just Curious To Know...
« on: March 30, 2013, 11:18 am »
I am not a religious person at all. I'm fine with being both Jewish and Christian but I do not practice either of them or however you want to put it. I just want to know what there are a lot of people out there that "know" in their hearts that the bible is 100% or close to 100% true. It just doesn't make sense to me...

I just want to know how people think the bible is accurate. From cover to cover. Does anyone have any proof of this, other than hope?

I won't say it's 100% true, but close.

I am muslim, and I have seen a few shows regarding bibles inaccuracy (can't really redirect right now. Some of them were probably by Dr. Zakir Naik). They seem legit.
In restaurants, pizza can be baked in an oven with stone bricks above the heat source, an electric deck oven, a conveyor belt oven or, in the case of more expensive restaurants, a wood- or coal-fired brick oven.

But why do you think that? Is there amy solid proof behind that or is it just because it's in the book? This has always confused me because I have never been given any solid proof for the validity of the bible.

I'm christian, so obviously a christian would say it's all true. However, I think it has changed over the years, but not too much.

I don't have proof but I like to believe it. Just a kid with a bit of hope and care you know.

Right there's nothing wrong with that and I can respect that. But it's the people that try to shove it down your throats that annoy me. Because it seems like there's no way to know for certain that just about any of it is true.

I'm just curious here I dont want to talk down to anyone. I just know there are probably some people here who have read the entire bible or have studied religion as a whole more than I have.

You should look at my "Strange day at work" thread in the Barracks.

I either encountered someone with extremely strong faith or schizophrenia.

I'm a Catholic, but I think Creation was just a story made up to try and explain how the world was made.

Thanks and people like that take it really seriously, that's understandable, but they can keep it with their own religion, I suppose.

I'm christian, but I hardly read the bible funny enough. And I only really study it in church and R.E

The current Bible is not the same as the old one. Over the years, the Bible was changed, it was rewritten etc.
Jesus lived many years ago, and that's a fact. It's proven.
Don't think the world part is true in the Bible, yeah :-) It's a mystery, and it will be forever.

I'm Jewish so I don't know much about the Bible. But some of the stories in it (Noah's Ark, The Exodus, etc.) are the same a Jewish stories. I believe most of these stories.

I'm not sure myself tbh.
I'm an atheist, though i've been baptized and went to church for quiet a long while (though i never had payed much if any attention in church)
However. My Opa is one of those people who are like.... Uber religious. Like i can't even tell him I'm atheist or i would be shunned or disowned or whatever by him. Also his brother/my great uncle is a preist.... or is it pastor? I always forget. Point is he has a church and he is the guys who "speaks the word of God" or whatever. So i guess it could have something to do with that. I don't know much about my opa's family, other than he had 15 siblings. They could have been raised very religious i guess.
Also, my oma attended christian school for most of her childhood, though she converted to be with my opa. She doesn't seem all Uber religious like my opa though.
o3o sorry this prolly didn't help at all XD

i think that faith is just a science we haven't delved deep in yet

i think that the different types of religions are just different ways at looking at the same thing (e.g. hindu has 3 main gods and there 3 forms of 'god' in Christianity)
