    Definition for Christianity
    I was reading a book called The Default Life (by Sam McLoughlin)

    He inserted a rather interesting definition for Christianity.

    (Urban Dictionary)

    A cosmic Jewish Zombie who was his own father can make you live forever if you symbolically eat his flesh and telepathically tell him you accept him as your master, so he can remove an evil force from your soul that is present in humanity because a rib-woman was convinced by a talking snake to eat from a magical tree.

    I thought that that was an interesting way of defining Christianity. I suppose, that yes it may seem like that to some people.

    It also reminded me of how easy it is to make fun of a Christian, because some Christians say the most stupid things.

    Anyways, that is all for now.

    Peace,
    Alvira

    @Alexander. They expect us to listen to them, so we do. But when it comes to listening to us, they take things out of context then tear us apart. Not all of them mind you, but some of them seem to fully enjoy this. It makes me sad that no matter how open minded I try to be, they don't give me the same courtesy.

    To answer Davey, I feel horrible for what happened to the people of Haiti. If I could do anything to help them, I would without a doubt. If you did not get the story behind what I stated, you would of course jump to conclusions thinking I thought they deserved, perhaps if you hadn't taken it out of context that badly this would not need to be said. I would like to mention that me and Aeris decided to start this thread so we could discuss the Bible and discuss things. Not to have people get annoyed and start freaking out about things taken out of context or people trying to prove our faith wrong. If you would like to start a thread about that, please go right ahead, just not here. Please.

    Why do you get all uptight about Christianity. Is it a threat to you?

    I am sure it is safe to assume that you would rather have all christians dead so you don't have to deal with what we say.

    Afraid not. I know you wish I was. This is what I believe David. You can ask questions if you want. But I am hoping that we don't take this thread down the same path as Pascal's Wager 1+2 and Alexander's Questions thread.

    Yes. That is true. Yet though he provided for us back then, and that he provides for us now, we doubt that he will provide and provide for ourselves through our own means. I do not mean that we shouldn't work, that would be foolish and dumb, but maybe we ought to put more of our trust into him. After all he created us and he loves us. He provided for us in the beginning and continues to provide for us today in ways we have haven't realized. He is the one who sends the rains to help us grow the crops we need to eat and to survive. That is why Haiti experienced a lack of rain while the DR had plenty of rain. Haiti had given itself over to the devil, so God did not bless it. A kid who steals a cookie does not deserve another one for what he did. It is the kid who did not steal a cookie that will receive one from his parents.

    Old Testament
    Ok. So this thread is dedicated to studying and discussing the Old Testament(Bible). We will be using the Message Version.

    We are going to start from the beginning.

    Genesis 1

    Heaven and Earth

    1-2First this: God created the Heavens and Earth—all you see, all you don't see. Earth was a soup of nothingness, a bottomless emptiness, an inky blackness. God's Spirit brooded like a bird above the watery abyss.

    3-5 God spoke: "Light!"
    And light appeared.
    God saw that light was good
    and separated light from dark.
    God named the light Day,
    he named the dark Night.
    It was evening, it was morning—
    Day One.

    6-8 God spoke: "Sky! In the middle of the waters;
    separate water from water!"
    God made sky.
    He separated the water under sky
    from the water above sky.
    And there it was:
    he named sky the Heavens;
    It was evening, it was morning—
    Day Two.

    9-10 God spoke: "Separate!
    Water-beneath-Heaven, gather into one place;
    Land, appear!"
    And there it was.
    God named the land Earth.
    He named the pooled water Ocean.
    God saw that it was good.

    11-13 God spoke: "Earth, green up! Grow all varieties
    of seed-bearing plants,
    Every sort of fruit-bearing tree."
    And there it was.
    Earth produced green seed-bearing plants,
    all varieties,
    And fruit-bearing trees of all sorts.
    God saw that it was good.
    It was evening, it was morning—
    Day Three.

    14-15 God spoke: "Lights! Come out!
    Shine in Heaven's sky!
    Separate Day from Night.
    Mark seasons and days and years,
    Lights in Heaven's sky to give light to Earth."
    And there it was.

    16-19 God made two big lights, the larger
    to take charge of Day,
    The smaller to be in charge of Night;
    and he made the stars.
    God placed them in the heavenly sky
    to light up Earth
    And oversee Day and Night,
    to separate light and dark.
    God saw that it was good.
    It was evening, it was morning—
    Day Four.

    20-23 God spoke: "Swarm, Ocean, with fish and all sea life!
    Birds, fly through the sky over Earth!"
    God created the huge whales,
    all the swarm of life in the waters,
    And every kind and species of flying birds.
    God saw that it was good.
    God blessed them: "Prosper! Reproduce! Fill Ocean!
    Birds, reproduce on Earth!"
    It was evening, it was morning—
    Day Five.

    24-25 God spoke: "Earth, generate life! Every sort and kind:
    cattle and reptiles and wild animals—all kinds."
    And there it was:
    wild animals of every kind,
    Cattle of all kinds, every sort of reptile and bug.
    God saw that it was good.

    26-28 God spoke: "Let us make human beings in our image, make them
    reflecting our nature
    So they can be responsible for the fish in the sea,
    the birds in the air, the cattle,
    And, yes, Earth itself,
    and every animal that moves on the face of Earth."
    God created human beings;
    he created them godlike,
    Reflecting God's nature.
    He created them male and female.
    God blessed them:
    "Prosper! Reproduce! Fill Earth! Take charge!
    Be responsible for fish in the sea and birds in the air,
    for every living thing that moves on the face of Earth."

    29-30 Then God said, "I've given you
    every sort of seed-bearing plant on Earth
    And every kind of fruit-bearing tree,
    given them to you for food.
    To all animals and all birds,
    everything that moves and breathes,
    I give whatever grows out of the ground for food."
    And there it was.

    31 God looked over everything he had made;
    it was so good, so very good!
    It was evening, it was morning—
    Day Six.

    So here is the creation, the beginning of the world according to the Bible. It is interesting to notice how God created human beings in his image. After creating us he did not leave us without nothing. He gave us all that grows out of the ground to eat.

    @Maddog, the thread has taken a very different path, lots of rabbit trails that have driven it away from the main purpose of the thread.
    As for thoughts, well I recommend reading Romans. It is a good book and does state some of my opinion. I will give a more detailed reply later.

    You guys have fun here. I am going to take a break from all of this, and when things start to change I might come back.
    I'll keep reading the posts, interested to see what is going to happen.

    @Dave I am glad to see that you want to learn more. I only wish everyone else would be as willing to learn something new.

    Ok. Maybe I did misuse bashing, but I am sure you got what I meant. I also don't think we should be the cause of people slinking with their tail between their legs.

    I can't fully agree with you. I never called analysis and critique bashing. What I was really trying to say, is that sometimes we take those things to far which results in bashing.
    Analyze all you want, but analyzing is not pointing out every single flaw and expecting someone with far less experience in this then you to come up with an answer that is at your level.

    I understand you point, however, sometimes we take things too far.
