Wrong!

The gods became useless and were no longer seen as helpful to those who once
believed in them and worshipped them. For example, belief in Zeus no longer
explains thunder and lightening very well. His "thunderbolts" have been made
superfluous by science. A god with pretend "thunderbolts" isn't much of a
god.

I want to know which "God" you're claiming to believe in, and how
he revealed himself to you, that you should hear him and trust
what he said:

_________________________

_________________________


And how is it your God just happened to refer to himself as
"Yahweh" who had a son named "Jesus" since that (just
coincidentally of course), happens to be the same name of the God
we know about from a source you insist is man-made, fallible,
makes God out to be evil, and that not "any" verse of it can be
known to be the actual word of God?


__________________________

__________________________


<chuckle>
--
Have you heard Christ died for our sins, and God raised Him
from the dead? Did you know God saves you from hell and
gives you eternal life through faith in this finished work alone,
not your merits (Jn. 3:16; 1 Cor. 15:1-3; Eph. 2:8-10; 2 Thess.
1:8-9)? This is so man cannot boast, and God alone gets the
glory (Eph. 2:8-9).

I worship the SAME Exclusive One God Yahweh whom
Jesus worshipped and whom Jesus told us to worship.

WHY don't you follow JESUS' Greatest Commandments?????
--
Jesus replied: "'Love the Lord your God [YAHWEH NOT YAHWEH'S HUMAN CHRIST /
MESSIAH Jesus of Nazareth] with all your heart and with all your soul and
with all your mind.' This is the first and greatest
commandment. And the second is like it: 'Love your neighbor as yourself.'
All the Law and the Prophets hang on these two commandments." Matthew
22:37-40

There is ONLY ONE historic time / space Jesus of Nazareth, who is the Christ
OF God. "God was IN Christ" (2 Cor. 5:19-21) NOT "God WAS Christ"

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Pre-Easter Jesus / Post-Easter Jesus

4 B.C.E. to 30 C.E. / 30 C.E. to present
Corporeal, human being of flesh and blood Spiritual / non-material
reality
Finite and mortal / Infinite, eternal
Human / Divine
A Jewish peasant / King of Kings and Lord of Lords
Figure of the past / Figure of the present
Jesus of Nazareth / Jesus Christ
Monotheistic Jew / Becomes the second person of the trinity, "God with a
human face"
Galilean Jew of the first century / "The Face of God" (metaphor based on
2 Cor. 4:6 Beholding the glory of God in the face of Christ)

The ONLY AUTHENTIC human time / space historic Jesus of Nazareth is the
Pre-Easter Jesus.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

One DOESN'T require a bible in order to know God.

God is NOT bound by a bible.

####################################################
from James Barr "Fundamentalism" (SCM Press:1977)

There is no 'the Bible' that 'claims' to be divinely inspired, there is no
'it' that has a 'view of itself'. ... There is no such thing as 'the Bible's
view of itself' from which a fully authoritative answer to these questions
can be obtained. ... The most obvious difficulty is the absence from the
New Testamnent of clear unambiguous 'claims' about the infallibility and
inerrancy of the total New Testament as we have it today. p.78

##############################################

According to Jung , 'God stands, omnipotent and free, above his Bible."
p.131

... the Fundamentalsit will never ask what lies beyond the Bible, or what
sort of religious experience was possible before there was a Bible. He
speaks and behaves as it is was impossible to be a Christian before there
was a New Testament. He may be too self-conscious to state that he believes
the Bible to have been divinely dictated, but that is really what he does
believe. pp 131-132

... the Fundamentalist will forbid you to ask certain questions about the
Bible ... p. 132

It is therefore much mopre honest (though it may well make life more
difficult) to see the Bible as result rather than beginning. ... as a matter
of historical reality the Bible is the end orf a process. First, viewed as
a whole, the list of books which form the Bible was finally agreed upon only
in the fourth century AD, more than two hundred years after the latest book
in the New testament was written. And, second, viewed in its component
parts, each book of the Bible - or in many cases each part of a book - is
the result of a human creartive process akin to, or even identical with, the
production of a work of art. ... Each has his own language, and it is his
language, though the thoughts may be divine. pp. 132-133

In fact, then, the Bible is a collection, a human collection, of very human
response to the divine ... If it were literally the word of God it would be
unintelligible to us, just as divine music would be meaningless to human
ears. To speak or behave, therefore, as the Fundamentalist does, as if
Christianity is a question of responding to the Bible, is to faiol to do
justice to what the Bible is - it is itself response. What the Christin is
invited to do is to make his own response to what the bibklical writers were
responding to ... we only do justice to it, rather than simply obeyiong it
or imitating the responses which it contains, we allow it to form in us the
capacity to make our own unique responses. p. 134

... the Bible may be the initial impetus in the religious life of a
believer, and it may be the source to which the believer constantly returns.
But equally it may not: it is not necessarily so. There is no reason -
other than convention or Fundamentalist propaganda - why the Bible should
have a monopoly in the area of religious experience, so that 'if it's in the
Bible it must be so, and if it's not in the Bible it can't be so'. There
are other sources of revelation. p. 134

... the process of establishing which books actually belonged in the bible
was a human process: over a period of centuries the church gradually brought
itself to regard some books as having authoritative or canonical status and
to exclude others. .... There is therefore no reason in principle why flesh
and blood cannot continue the process and add new sources of revelation or
take away old ones (as Luther came very near doing when he dismissed the
letter of James as 'an epistle of straw'). p. 135

... the Fundamentalist is more or less obliged by his own presuppositions to
take a closed view of the Bibhle. If the Bible were not the final word then
he would have to review the whole basis of his religion. ... to insist that
God was behind the formation of the canon is both to assume what you are
trying to prove and to legislate on God's subsequent freedom to act and
reveal himself in any way he choses. p. 135

... if the Bible is the necessary and exclusive precondition for a
Christian's religious experience, it must logically follow that none of the
New Testament writers were themselves Christians, since by definition the
canonical Bible was not available to them. p. 135

We are entirely free, therefore, to explore the possibility that there are
indeed ways of approaching or understanding or questioning God which are
alternative to those contained in the Bible and which may have nothing at
all to do with the Bible and may eeven contradict it. p. 136

The Bible was something like 1500 years in the making .... the Bible
throughout its development was constantly changing its character, widening
its repertoire, breaking its own bounds. p. 136

... a religion which considers itself bound exclusively and finally by an
arbitrary collection of documents, abruptly and artificially sealed up in
the fourth century AD, is misunderstanding its own essence and indeed
closing itself off from the God whom it professes to reveal. p. 137

... an approach which seeks to legislate on what can and cannot be called
religious experience or revelation, according to whether or not it takes its
point of departure from the Bible, is simply closing its eyes to what
actually happens. pp. 139-140

The Bible in fact, if it is approached in accordance with the spirit which
permeates it, cries out to us to use our imagination, free from all
constraints, in our search for, or response to, God. p. 140

From Peter Cameron's "Fundamentalism and Freedom" (Doubleday; Sydney: 1995.)

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

The most pronounced characteristics [of fundamentalists] are the following:
(a) a very strong emphasis on the inerrancy of the Bible, the absence from
it of any sort of error;
(b) a strong hostility to modern theology and to the methods, results and
implications of modern critical study of the Bible;
(c) an assurance that those who do not share their religious viewpoint are
not really 'true Christians' at all.
- James Barr "Fundamentalism" (SCM Press:1977) p.1

I worship the SAME Exclusive One God Yahweh whom
Jesus worshipped and whom Jesus told us to worship.
WHY don't you follow JESUS' Greatest Commandments?????
Hi Mark (and any others with nothing better to do than read this :-)

Today (at Queenscliff, Victoria, Australia on 3 November 2009) my
Spiritual Director invited me to consider who God is for me. Here’s what
I scribbled:

At the outset, as I approach this awesome subject, I need to assert
again my deep ignorance, and take the shoes of arrogance from my feet.

First, God is. I have never seriously doubted God’s existence,
encountering God in the lives and commitment of the ‘saints’ in our
childhood church, later in the ‘works of God’s hands’ in nature, and
ultimately/most importantly – until today – in Jesus, Lover and Lord
(the notion of ‘Christ’ may be meaningful for Jews who follow Jesus, but
isn’t so much for me). This God is not far from any one of us: in God we
live and move and have our being.

God is Being, the life in all living things, and infinite (centre
everywhere, circumference nowhere). Our feeble attempts at understanding
describe God as enlivener, enlightener and empowerer of all creatures:
God is Creator, God is Truth, God is with us. Christian ‘Spirituality’
is about nothing else.

I also believe God is personal – father/mother/friend. I know the
biblical writers used anthropomorphic language in their struggle to
depict who God is, but the clear message throughout is that God desires
a relationship with me, a relationship, astonishingly, with reciprocal
dimensions. This is what’s behind the beautiful Hebrew idea of hesed,
which is almost untranslatable into English, but ‘covenant love’ or,
better, ‘lovingkindness’ will do for now. (And I will use masculine
pronouns for God, if only to remind me that he is for me the ‘Father’ I
never had…)

God chose to reveal his ‘nature’ and ‘purposes’ to/for us via some
ancient sages, poets and prophets, but ultimately in Jesus of Nazareth.
So what is this God like? He is ‘Grace’ (justice-love) and ‘Truth’.

God calls each of us to a special vocation: to serve others in whatever
unique ways for which we are destined and equipped. First, our calling
is to know him (the main means: prayer) and out of that to communicate
his grace and truth. Both prayer and service to others are best done
with deeds (plus words if necessary). Occasionally (this is a great
mystery for humans) we are equipped to pray and serve better through
suffering: being with Jesus ‘outside the camp/ the city walls’ (ie. our
social group’s sometimes unhelpful or evil distractions and
expectations). It is even good to be thus afflicted, so that we can
better learn God’s decrees (Psalm 119:7).

Again: who is the God to whom we pray and whom we serve? God is grace
(loving us unconditionally before, as, and after we change, and whether
we change or not). And God is holy (beyond any blame, and who gives us
truth/laws to that we might better journey towards blamelessness). Love
and law are complementary, as a train is to the railway tracks: all the
propulsive power is in the train, but the tracks give direction. Without
the tracks our imperfect ideas of ‘loving’ can be selfish or even
chaotic; without a train, tracks are sterile – pointing to a destination
but powerless to help us get there. People who are preoccupied with the
tracks are called legalists or dogmatists: Jesus got very angry with
such people.

Now, what is God calling me – Rowland Croucher – to be and do? First to
get to know God as well as I can, mainly through prayer. And then to
communicate to others what I’ve learned about God (call that
‘evangelism’ if you like – spreading good news - so long as you don’t
contaminate that idea with its many contemporary – or even ancient –
caricatures). There are three ideas Jesus gave us which are apposite
here, and must be placed together. ‘See the harvest? It’s ripe.’ So get
a sickle? No: ‘Pray!’ See the people as sheep without a shepherd? So
organize them into churches? Not really, or at least not initially:
‘have compassion on them’. See the nations of the world? ‘As you have
seen me live out my Father’s will, so you do the same where you live and
serve.’

As a teenager who’d made a significant and earnest ‘decision to follow
Jesus’ I vowed to get as well-equipped as I could to communicate the
Gospel to as many people as possible. I handed out gospel tracts. I
talked to fellow-students at Bathurst Teachers’ College, many of whom
then decided to follow Jesus. I wrote a Gospel slogan on a drain-wall
near Kogarah, Sydney, which thousands in passing trains could read (I
told no one except my wife, but occasionally heard people in various
places talking about it). I phoned radio-commentator Ormsby Wilkins and
talked about Billy Graham (and wondered why others couldn’t or wouldn’t
spend 10 cents on a phone call to communicate with 100,000 people). I
wandered around Australia’s tertiary campuses for three years,
conducting evangelistic meetings and training some of the future leaders
of our nation. At Blackburn Baptist Church we did some things well and
other things poorly, but every week on average during our 8 ½ years
there people were ‘converted’. In the last two decades words produced
from my keyboard have gone into a dozen books, and these days on to a
busy website, into Usenet newsgroups, Facebook, onto some Blogs, and to
thousands of emailers…

Now, I confessed to my Spiritual Director, I’m not much good as a
pray-er (I’m often too self-sufficient for my own spiritual good). And I
get too much of a ‘buzz’ thinking about all those numbers (I was seduced
early in life into thinking that more is usually better). I learned too
late that ‘ministry’ is not automatically self-nurturing. And I was
sometimes too preoccupied with serving the Lord ‘out there’ instead of
‘ministering’ better as a husband and father. Often serving God has been
more enjoyable than ‘wasting time with God’ (as Sheila Cassidy so
beautifully put it in one of her books). Sometimes I’ve sabotaged the
whole operation with ill-chosen – albeit maybe clever - words and ideas
which were too provocative to be useful in a particular context. And
when that happened, I’ve been too negatively sensitive to the
justly-deserved criticism which ensued. (But on the other hand, Lord,
save me from the more secure route where ‘the bland leads the bland’).

So I think (I said to my Spiritual Director) that it’s probably time to
be put out to pasture in 2010, travel less and write more, engage in no
self- and very little ministry-promotion, and enjoy my 72nd year
listening more attentively to God and sharing the Good News with more
folks on-line. (And, Lord, you know that at this time I’m more than
ready for a sabbatical).

Shalom/Salaam/Pax! Rowland Croucher

Like Bonhoeffer asking "Who is Christ for us today?"
Post by **Rowland Croucher**
This God is not far from any one of us: in God we live and move and have

From Acts 17:28 where Paul quotes Aratus' "Hymn to Zeus". The "him" in whom
we "live and move and have our being" was originally Zeus.

Now, what is God calling me – Rowland Croucher – to be and do? First to
get to know God as well as I can, mainly through prayer.
John Shelby Spong has found it next to useless and so have I. If we live
and move and have our being in God then God already knows what I think. Too
often prayers said aloud are to impress other people and not to communicate
with God. I have found prayer to be the least effectual way of getting to
know God. Dr Barbara Thiering summarises nicely the problems with
Christianity which still haven't been adequately addresed by churches ...

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Barbara Thiering ... considers herself a Christian and feels that the
separation of the historical Jesus from the theological God would be a
positive development for Christianity. ... we can no longer speak of God as
a superhuman male. ... The other big issue of our time is this question of
the separation of Jesus and god. Is Christianity the same thing as the cult
of Jesus? That must be the current theological issue that is taken on. ...
The deification of Jesus has proved to be an effective educational tool for
the Christian church. When talking to children or less sophisticated
people, both the Catholic and Protestant churches have fastened on Jesus
because they've felt than an abstract God is something people can't
understand - Jesus is something they can. ... The question of God has always
been separate from the question of Jesus. ... As a result of all the books
on the historical Jesus which have been written over the past twenty years,
the idea of the supernatural Jesus is really finished. it was a crude idea
appropriate to a less advanced society. ... for some years now, people who
have usually had a church background, have come to the point of saying, 'It
is ridiculous to talk about the Son of God and to worship a human being.' It
was one of the heresies, to worship a human being. We had reverted to that.
... People have been saying, 'Let's stop the cult of Jesus,' ... pp 166-167

The Bible had scarecely been read for fifteen hundred years until the
Protestants went to the book and made it their priest. They understood it
no better than the Catholics but it was a powerful political tool against
the priests and that's been the case for the past five hundred years. So,
Protestants are particuylarly badly affected by this new collapse because
they have a lot invested in the Bible and in history and in Jesus. They've
never really gone for an abstract doctrine of God and, as a result,
Protestants are disappearing. p. 168

I could never cope with the notion that my internal salvation and my
morality depended on Jesus walking on water. p. 168

As soon as you think of God, you need to put brackets around it because
your're only thinking in your own terms and your own language. I'm thinking
in English. My thinking is inadequate for something better expressed in
Hindi. You cannot think about God, you cannot have any knowledge of God
but, at the same time, you have to, in order to cope with your personal
religious needs. In fact, you cannot know God in any way because there is
nothing you can say about God that is true. pp. 176-177

from Samantha Trenoweth "The Future of God: Personal adventures in
spirituality with thirteen of today's eminent thinkers" (Millenniun: 1995)

But if Paul thought they already knew the correct God, why did he
go risking his life to preach the gospel of Christ's death and
resurrection to them?

And why do you quote the Bible as proof of your claims, given you
insist you can't know if any of the Bible is not an error? How
do you expect people to not conclude you are an agnostic
hypocrite, unless you produce some source you claim is actually
the word of God, that gives you a reason to believe in that God?

Have you heard Christ died for our sins, and God raised Him
from the dead? Did you know God saves you from hell and
gives you eternal life through faith in this finished work alone,
not your merits (Jn. 3:16; 1 Cor. 15:1-3; Eph. 2:8-10; 2 Thess.
1:8-9)? This is so man cannot boast, and God alone gets the
glory (Eph. 2:8-9).

I worship the SAME Exclusive One God Yahweh whom
Jesus worshipped and whom Jesus told us to worship.
WHY don't you follow JESUS' Greatest Commandments?????
Hi Mark (and any others with nothing better to do than read this :-)
Today (at Queenscliff, Victoria, Australia on 3 November 2009) my
Spiritual Director invited me to consider who God is for me. Here's what
At the outset, as I approach this awesome subject, I need to assert
again my deep ignorance, and take the shoes of arrogance from my feet.
First, God is. I have never seriously doubted God's existence,
encountering God in the lives and commitment of the `saints' in our
childhood church, later in the `works of God's hands' in nature, and
ultimately/most importantly -- until today -- in Jesus, Lover and Lord
(the notion of `Christ' may be meaningful for Jews who follow Jesus, but
isn't so much for me). This God is not far from any one of us: in God we
live and move and have our being.
God is Being, the life in all living things, and infinite (centre
everywhere, circumference nowhere). Our feeble attempts at understanding
God is Creator, God is Truth, God is with us. Christian 'Spirituality'
is about nothing else.
I also believe God is personal -- father/mother/friend. I know the
biblical writers used anthropomorphic language in their struggle to
depict who God is, but the clear message throughout is that God desires
a relationship with me, a relationship, astonishingly, with reciprocal
dimensions. This is what's behind the beautiful Hebrew idea of hesed,
which is almost untranslatable into English, but 'covenant love' or,
better, 'lovingkindness' will do for now. (And I will use masculine
pronouns for God, if only to remind me that he is for me the 'Father' I
never had.)
God chose to reveal his 'nature' and 'purposes' to/for us via some
ancient sages, poets and prophets, but ultimately in Jesus of Nazareth.
So what is this God like? He is 'Grace' (justice-love) and 'Truth'.
God calls each of us to a special vocation: to serve others in whatever
unique ways for which we are destined and equipped. First, our calling
is to know him (the main means: prayer) and out of that to communicate
his grace and truth. Both prayer and service to others are best done
with deeds (plus words if necessary). Occasionally (this is a great
mystery for humans) we are equipped to pray and serve better through
suffering: being with Jesus 'outside the camp/ the city walls' (ie. our
social group's sometimes unhelpful or evil distractions and
expectations). It is even good to be thus afflicted, so that we can
better learn God's decrees (Psalm 119:7).
Again: who is the God to whom we pray and whom we serve? God is grace
(loving us unconditionally before, as, and after we change, and whether
we change or not). And God is holy (beyond any blame, and who gives us
truth/laws to that we might better journey towards blamelessness). Love
and law are complementary, as a train is to the railway tracks: all the
propulsive power is in the train, but the tracks give direction. Without
the tracks our imperfect ideas of 'loving' can be selfish or even
chaotic; without a train, tracks are sterile -- pointing to a destination
but powerless to help us get there. People who are preoccupied with the
tracks are called legalists or dogmatists: Jesus got very angry with
such people.
Now, what is God calling me -- Rowland Croucher -- to be and do? First to
get to know God as well as I can, mainly through prayer. And then to
communicate to others what I've learned about God (call that
'evangelism' if you like -- spreading good news - so long as you don't
contaminate that idea with its many contemporary -- or even ancient --
caricatures). There are three ideas Jesus gave us which are apposite
here, and must be placed together. 'See the harvest? It's ripe.' So get
a sickle? No: 'Pray!' See the people as sheep without a shepherd? So
'have compassion on them'. See the nations of the world? 'As you have
seen me live out my Father's will, so you do the same where you live and
serve.'
As a teenager who'd made a significant and earnest 'decision to follow
Jesus' I vowed to get as well-equipped as I could to communicate the
Gospel to as many people as possible. I handed out gospel tracts. I
talked to fellow-students at Bathurst Teachers' College, many of whom
then decided to follow Jesus. I wrote a Gospel slogan on a drain-wall
near Kogarah, Sydney, which thousands in passing trains could read (I
told no one except my wife, but occasionally heard people in various
places talking about it). I phoned radio-commentator Ormsby Wilkins and
talked about Billy Graham (and wondered why others couldn't or wouldn't
spend 10 cents on a phone call to communicate with 100,000 people). I
wandered around Australia's tertiary campuses for three years,
conducting evangelistic meetings and training some of the future leaders
of our nation. At Blackburn Baptist Church we did some things well and
other things poorly, but every week on average during our 8 + years
there people were 'converted'. In the last two decades words produced
from my keyboard have gone into a dozen books, and these days on to a
busy website, into Usenet newsgroups, Facebook, onto some Blogs, and to
thousands of emailers...
Now, I confessed to my Spiritual Director, I'm not much good as a
pray-er (I'm often too self-sufficient for my own spiritual good). And I
get too much of a 'buzz' thinking about all those numbers (I was seduced
early in life into thinking that more is usually better). I learned too
late that 'ministry' is not automatically self-nurturing. And I was
sometimes too preoccupied with serving the Lord 'out there' instead of
'ministering' better as a husband and father. Often serving God has been
more enjoyable than 'wasting time with God' (as Sheila Cassidy so
beautifully put it in one of her books). Sometimes I've sabotaged the
whole operation with ill-chosen - albeit maybe clever - words and ideas
which were too provocative to be useful in a particular context. And
when that happened, I've been too negatively sensitive to the
justly-deserved criticism which ensued. (But on the other hand, Lord,
save me from the more secure route where 'the bland leads the bland').
So I think (I said to my Spiritual Director) that it's probably time to
be put out to pasture in 2010, travel less and write more, engage in no
self- and very little ministry-promotion, and enjoy my 72nd year
listening more attentively to God and sharing the Good News with more
folks on-line. (And, Lord, you know that at this time I'm more than
ready for a sabbatical).
You're much too young to be "put out to pasture", Rowland.
Helen and I thought that when we moved into the retirement village
we'd be able to have a bit of time just relaxing together.
But we're just as busy as before - except that we have more
opportunities for a bit of a "lie-in" in the mornings, claiming our
age as a reason for not getting up quite so early.

With age comes more wisdom. Our youth oriented culture doesn't value those
of many years. It doesn't know what it is missing out on.

I have a few friends employed (and unemployed) in the IT world. Once you
hit 40 as a computer expert no-one wants to hire you. I'm sure that is also
the case in other fields.

From a source you insist you can't know if any of it is not an

Or is there some other source you are claiming is the "word of

has a Son named "Jesus"?

If so, please post the "real" word of God here:

What is the word of God
All truth is God's truth. Truth is God's word. God's word is
truth. Truth can be found anywhere and is NOT confined to a man-made
fallible bible.

The Bible contains the phrase "thus says the LORD" 1,180 times.

Ignorant Randy Young says that means that the bible is "God's Word".

There are at least two problems with such a view:

1. The parts of the bible that DON'T have "thus says the LORD" prefacing it.

Everything NOT prefaced by ""thus says the LORD" must, by Randy Young's
logic, NOT be the "Word of God" even if it is said by Jesus. Likewise
statements like John 3:16 AREN'T a part of Jesus' speech. Greek has no
speech marks and it it is obvious that the text is a commentary by the
writer. That means that John 3:16 is NOT "God's Word". It also means that
the vast majority of text in the bible is not "God's Word".

2. "thus says the LORD" is found elsewhere.

The Book of Mormon states "thus says the LORD" at 1 Ne. 21: 7-8, 22, 25, 2
Ne. 6: 6, 17, Jacob 2: 23, 25, 28, Mosiah 11: 20, 25, 2 Ne. 7: 1, 2 Ne. 26:
17-18, Alma 8: 17, 29, Hel. 10: 11, 14, Hel. 13: 8, 11, 1 Ne. 20: 17, 2 Ne.
3: 7, 2 Ne. 5: 22, 2 Ne. 10: 7, 2 Ne. 17: 7, 2 Ne. 20: 24, 2 Ne. 27: 33, 2
Ne. 28: 30, Ne. 29: 4, Jacob 5: 3, Mosiah 3: 24, Mosiah 12: 2, Mosiah 23: 7,
Alma 45: 16, Hel. 7: 23, 3 Ne. 20: 38 Using Randy Young's logic one must
also consider the book of Mormon to be "God's Word".

The Koran likewise has the phrase "God says" so, by Randy Young's own
standard, the Koran must be "God's Word".
--
The most pronounced characteristics [of fundamentalists] are the following:
(a) a very strong emphasis on the inerrancy of the Bible, the absence from
it of any sort of error;
(b) a strong hostility to modern theology and to the methods, results and
implications of modern critical study of the Bible;
(c) an assurance that those who do not share their religious viewpoint are
not really 'true Christians' at all.

I didn't ask Mark who owns the truth, I asked him:

Where's your authoritative word of God that gave you knowledge of
and faith in the "truth" about Jesus and Yahweh, since you claim
you can't know if anything in the Bible is not an error?

There is a difference between a belief and a religion.
I call it the utopian dream. Please note, there may be other differences between
belief and religion but a utopian dream seems to be in all religions.

A utopian dream is an irrational hope that his will bring you or a place, or a
town some ideal answer.
It could be as small as a "luck token" or superstition.
it could be a belief in the thousand year reich.
It could be "If people gave up their irrational ideas about G_d, the world would
be a wonderful place."
It could be "If I believe in my deity, I will get to my heaven."

These are different than the belief that freds tofu breakfast is better for you
than joe's fruit bars."
That is a belief which does not imply a utopian solution. Except if you are an
extreme health food nut case.

In this definition, there are some atheists who are religious, and some who are
not.

If I use this definition, more people would understand what is being discussed.

PS ... we know that beliefs are passed down genetically as learned responses
now.
We know beliefs in deities are in all branches of humanity.
We know these beliefs are included in our wars so we would fight and die for
these beliefs.
Religion is part of our human make up.

So what is the evolutionary advantage of a religious belief system?

And the answer is that utopian dreams allow us to sacrifice and dedicate to ...
which allows us to accomplish things we would not even try without such to unite
us and to sacrifice/dedicate to.
Things like the thousand year reich. People were willing to die and to give
their children to die for this belief.

A person who does not believe in little green men from mars is in a religion as
it is a belief?
A person who claims that there are not green men from another galaxy is in a
religion. Cause we can't tell for sure that there are not green men in the
universe.
Every absolutistic affirmation define a religion.
Atheists declare that "God does not exist". This is an absolutistic
affirmation that defines a religion.
I see, so are you in the religion of green men?
No. I'm not.

Tell me are you in the religion of gravity, and if so are you the newtonian
gravitronic, or the einsteinian gravitronic, or perhaps the string theory
gravitronic?

Atheists are gods to themselves. Every atheist belive he is god.
Atheism is absence of belief in any god.
Look up a dictionary.
Atheists don't just claim that they don't believe in God...
They claim that "God does not exist".
That statement is what is called a "dogma of faith".
This is how Atheism is a proper "religion" where the atheists are gods to
themselves.
They worship themselves and also pretend to be worshipped from the
non-atheists.
An a-theist is a non theist.

Now the question is, which God are you claiming to believe in?
Certainly not the one we know about from the source you insist
can't be trusted (i.e. the Bible).

What is the "word of God" you heard and trusted, and which God
are you claiming you heard from?

Have you heard Christ died for our sins, and God raised Him

1:8-9)? This is so man cannot boast, and God alone gets the
glory (Eph. 2:8-9).

Now the question is, which God are you claiming to believe in?
I worship the SAME Exclusive One God Yahweh whom
Jesus worshipped and whom Jesus told us to worship.

WHY don't you follow JESUS' Greatest Commandments?????
--
Jesus replied: "'Love the Lord your God [YAHWEH NOT YAHWEH'S HUMAN CHRIST /
MESSIAH Jesus of Nazareth] with all your heart and with all your soul and
with all your mind.' This is the first and greatest
commandment. And the second is like it: 'Love your neighbor as yourself.'
All the Law and the Prophets hang on these two commandments." Matthew
22:37-40

There is ONLY ONE historic time / space Jesus of Nazareth, who is the Christ
OF God. "God was IN Christ" (2 Cor. 5:19-21) NOT "God WAS Christ"

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Pre-Easter Jesus / Post-Easter Jesus

4 B.C.E. to 30 C.E. / 30 C.E. to present
Corporeal, human being of flesh and blood Spiritual / non-material
reality
Finite and mortal / Infinite, eternal
Human / Divine
A Jewish peasant / King of Kings and Lord of Lords
Figure of the past / Figure of the present
Jesus of Nazareth / Jesus Christ
Monotheistic Jew / Becomes the second person of the trinity, "God with a
human face"
Galilean Jew of the first century / "The Face of God" (metaphor based on
2 Cor. 4:6 Beholding the glory of God in the face of Christ)

The ONLY AUTHENTIC human time / space historic Jesus of Nazareth is the
Pre-Easter Jesus.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

One DOESN'T require a bible in order to know God.

God is NOT bound by a bible.

####################################################
from James Barr "Fundamentalism" (SCM Press:1977)

There is no 'the Bible' that 'claims' to be divinely inspired, there is no
'it' that has a 'view of itself'. ... There is no such thing as 'the Bible's
view of itself' from which a fully authoritative answer to these questions
can be obtained. ... The most obvious difficulty is the absence from the
New Testamnent of clear unambiguous 'claims' about the infallibility and
inerrancy of the total New Testament as we have it today. p.78

##############################################

According to Jung , 'God stands, omnipotent and free, above his Bible."
p.131

... the Fundamentalsit will never ask what lies beyond the Bible, or what
sort of religious experience was possible before there was a Bible. He
speaks and behaves as it is was impossible to be a Christian before there
was a New Testament. He may be too self-conscious to state that he believes
the Bible to have been divinely dictated, but that is really what he does
believe. pp 131-132

... the Fundamentalist will forbid you to ask certain questions about the
Bible ... p. 132

It is therefore much mopre honest (though it may well make life more
difficult) to see the Bible as result rather than beginning. ... as a matter
of historical reality the Bible is the end orf a process. First, viewed as
a whole, the list of books which form the Bible was finally agreed upon only
in the fourth century AD, more than two hundred years after the latest book
in the New testament was written. And, second, viewed in its component
parts, each book of the Bible - or in many cases each part of a book - is
the result of a human creartive process akin to, or even identical with, the
production of a work of art. ... Each has his own language, and it is his
language, though the thoughts may be divine. pp. 132-133

In fact, then, the Bible is a collection, a human collection, of very human
response to the divine ... If it were literally the word of God it would be
unintelligible to us, just as divine music would be meaningless to human
ears. To speak or behave, therefore, as the Fundamentalist does, as if
Christianity is a question of responding to the Bible, is to faiol to do
justice to what the Bible is - it is itself response. What the Christin is
invited to do is to make his own response to what the bibklical writers were
responding to ... we only do justice to it, rather than simply obeyiong it
or imitating the responses which it contains, we allow it to form in us the
capacity to make our own unique responses. p. 134

... the Bible may be the initial impetus in the religious life of a
believer, and it may be the source to which the believer constantly returns.
But equally it may not: it is not necessarily so. There is no reason -
other than convention or Fundamentalist propaganda - why the Bible should
have a monopoly in the area of religious experience, so that 'if it's in the
Bible it must be so, and if it's not in the Bible it can't be so'. There
are other sources of revelation. p. 134

... the process of establishing which books actually belonged in the bible
was a human process: over a period of centuries the church gradually brought
itself to regard some books as having authoritative or canonical status and
to exclude others. .... There is therefore no reason in principle why flesh
and blood cannot continue the process and add new sources of revelation or
take away old ones (as Luther came very near doing when he dismissed the
letter of James as 'an epistle of straw'). p. 135

... the Fundamentalist is more or less obliged by his own presuppositions to
take a closed view of the Bibhle. If the Bible were not the final word then
he would have to review the whole basis of his religion. ... to insist that
God was behind the formation of the canon is both to assume what you are
trying to prove and to legislate on God's subsequent freedom to act and
reveal himself in any way he choses. p. 135

... if the Bible is the necessary and exclusive precondition for a
Christian's religious experience, it must logically follow that none of the
New Testament writers were themselves Christians, since by definition the
canonical Bible was not available to them. p. 135

We are entirely free, therefore, to explore the possibility that there are
indeed ways of approaching or understanding or questioning God which are
alternative to those contained in the Bible and which may have nothing at
all to do with the Bible and may eeven contradict it. p. 136

The Bible was something like 1500 years in the making .... the Bible
throughout its development was constantly changing its character, widening
its repertoire, breaking its own bounds. p. 136

... a religion which considers itself bound exclusively and finally by an
arbitrary collection of documents, abruptly and artificially sealed up in
the fourth century AD, is misunderstanding its own essence and indeed
closing itself off from the God whom it professes to reveal. p. 137

... an approach which seeks to legislate on what can and cannot be called
religious experience or revelation, according to whether or not it takes its
point of departure from the Bible, is simply closing its eyes to what
actually happens. pp. 139-140

The Bible in fact, if it is approached in accordance with the spirit which
permeates it, cries out to us to use our imagination, free from all
constraints, in our search for, or response to, God. p. 140

From Peter Cameron's "Fundamentalism and Freedom" (Doubleday; Sydney: 1995.)

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

The most pronounced characteristics [of fundamentalists] are the following:
(a) a very strong emphasis on the inerrancy of the Bible, the absence from
it of any sort of error;
(b) a strong hostility to modern theology and to the methods, results and
implications of modern critical study of the Bible;
(c) an assurance that those who do not share their religious viewpoint are
not really 'true Christians' at all.
- James Barr "Fundamentalism" (SCM Press:1977) p.1

Based on what source? The one you insist we can't know what of
it is not an error, or some other source? If some other, please
identify it:

His commands require faith, and faith requires hearing, and
hearing requires the word of God. Either identify the "real"
word of God, or admit you're an agnostic who is trying to
undermine men's basis for believing in God, and obeying His commands:
