Dear readers and participants:

Disclaimer: This thread will NOT be to cause division, strife, anger nor words of wrath directed at another's, thoughts,faith,beliefs, doctrines or denominations.

I am simply full of questioning everything. Critical thinking can be both good and bad. Don't be a stool pigeon and just let ppl tell you any & everything to believe; question, vet the person informing, facts NOT supposition must be the basis to what makes you; YOU

Questions will be asked on our lives as followers of God, the hows, whats, whens whys and whos !

All are welcome to join in, just be polite, informed, ready to verify, able to communicate through COMPREHENSION and response.

My lead in to my first question is according to Jewish historians, the first five books of what we call the Bible, the Word of God, the Scriptures, the Old Testaments, were purportedly written by Moses.

These were directed to a SPECIFIC nation, chosen by God, to fulfil his plan or will in the world of HIS creation.

Question:
Can the Bible be authenticated as the Word of God ?

Hi @L3astAm0ngManyB13ss3d The historic Protestant response to the question is that the Word of God is self-authenticating....

According to what we hold to be the Word of God, Genesis begins the journey of a relationship with a created being in which God made all and everything beautiful, fruitful and at peace.
Even the predators didn't kill for food but ate of the herbs of the fields.

We do not have an accurate time frame of creation; for the story of the earth tells of _illions of years. It tells of man not known to us as well as ferocious beast of reptilian species. Dinosaurs.

With history can we verify that what Moses wrote is accurate ?

The caveman ? The wooly mammoths,? saber tooth tigers ?

Are these real ?
Is this life a hoax perpetrated on mankind?
By whom ?

What authenticates the Word of God ?
Or should it have to be authenicated?

The idea of someone else supposedly authenticating the Word of Go puts ecclesiastics, etc., in a position they should never be in.

No the church is supposed to be on THE FOUNDATION OF WHAT THE WORD IS.
Our FOUNDATION must be solid or our house will fall.

The church should REVEAL the Word of God !

Of course. What kind of authentication are you looking for?




If you have to ask what kind of authentication ,then you have none !

Does world or earth history back the Word of God? Events.

There is MUCH in man's way of translations, where is the original ?

Why is IT not replicated and dispersed?

I know the Holy Spirit is my teacher but I often wonder if something has been left off that is of importance, or an in between verse missing.

The bible says the world was created by God.

Jesus the pre-incarnate Word.....specifically created it.

John 1:10

Colossians 1:16

Is the world here?
Does it exist?
Are you on it?

So, Here is how to understand what you are wanting to know.

Everything that exists, has to have a Creator.

A book can't write itself.
A Painting can't paint itself.

The world and the universe at large did not create itself.

Who did?
The Bible told you.
So, the Bible is not the issue, .. .its your lack of understanding and desire NOT TO BELIEVE, that is your problem.

= You only want to argue your unbelief., which is just a waste of time, when all of CREATiON proves there is a : CREATOR.
And the BIBLE told you so, and told you who it is..... Its GOD & Christ

Lol, man you lack understanding of what is said.

This earth population is vastly huge but the percentage of believers against unbelievers is a much wider gap. The numbers are small of true followers against the many who either follow man, self, other gods, the god of this world ,flesh ect.


I do not want to argue nor be judged by the simple mind of ignorance.


I see intellect is NOT YOUR FORTE.

plz don't respond to this.....
Have a cuppa and chill

l

So, you are not able to defend your disbelief that God created it all, after i showed you......how THEY did it.

Instead you can only lamely insult and completely ignore what i wrote.

I see that your IQ is not available to respond to my post.
Im not surprised, as your Thread's Topic is an attempt to try to "sound intelligent" .
It failed.

Listen, I can respond to your stupidity, but are you worth the effort?
I dont think so, as you are not here to learn, you are only here to TROLL..

Trolling is proof of a small mind that is led by emotionalism and opinion.
Try to find your way out of that mentality... L3astAm0ngManyB13ss3d

Did you not read her disclaimer?? "Disclaimer: This thread will NOT be to cause division, strife, anger nor words of wrath directed at another's, thoughts,faith,beliefs, doctrines or denominations."

What is wrong in simply questioning?? I think we are SUPPOSED to question all things. L3astAm0ngManyB13ss3d is no troll!
