I often get criticized by my Christian friends and family for not believing in a book inspired of God. In other post I’ve given a brief explanation why? I always ask them “Does it mean from God, of God,or in respect and reverence of him?”
Personally I don’t believe that it is a book directly inspired from God or of him. The only thing that I could ever believe in as inspired of deity or god, or a infinite being, is the universe. There are to many contradictory statements in my opinion for the bible ) or any other religious text) to be divinely inspire. My question is why would God allow his word to be so questioned?
I believe that it was written out of love and respect of this divine figure, to share in the teachings that Jesus Christ truly believed in and was prepared to die to spread.
**Note the contradiction I refer to are more of a matter of what I see in everyday. EX. I am always being told that the Christians no longer live by the OT yet that is the first place they go to discredit my life. To me that a big contradiction mostly defined by their actions but to some people its closer to the bottom of their list biblical contradictions.
I did some research and will share the first sites that came up in my original search, after I had started to notice some “discrepancies”. I don’t agree with all of them but some showed me things I didn’t even notice.
