Ugh.

A lot of good points, though!

Does this mean that you may have an issue with a cathouse whore being a "true" christian? ;)

@Terri:

As long as the cathouse whore doesn't try to debase scripture, she or he can be as true as Apostle Paul or any other Christian.

:-)

Deep post. Found your blog on West's spot. I'm impressed at how you broke it down about the KJV. I get tired of hearing scholars who "professing themselves to be wise...became fools" trying to explain why some translation done a couple of years ago is somehow better than the KJV because it's modern.

Yet another thought provoking post. Remind me not to get on your bad side... I guess Stuffed Animal is not invited to Liberia.

well, as an unbelieving unbeliever, my only comment is, there's lots of other books too. My only problem is with people who never read 'em, thinking that their One Book (Bible, Koran, Book of Mormon, whatever) is enough. Heck, None of those books even mention that the world is round.

@Keith:

No, SA is on the list with Lil’ Jon lol

@Tom

Well, I have read the Quran, the Vedas, the Talmud, etc., they are just not authoritative to me.

There's nothing wrong with reading and learning, my point was that if one calls themseles something they should follow that authority. A Quran is authoritative to a Muslim, the Talmud to one of the faith of Judaism, I don't see why there is controversy when a Christian has the Bible as their authority on questions of doctrine.

I wouldn’t expect an automotive repair book to speak to Christian doctrine, and I don’t expect the Bible to speak to automotive repair.

Likewise, I don’t expect the Bible to speak to astrophysics, as I don’t expect the “Brief History of Time: From the Big Bang to Black Holes” by Stephen Hawking to speak to my spirituality.

Sure, there could be some principles that can be applied from each to each, but they are about what they are about.

The Bible should be authoritative to Christians on questions of doctrine, I never said the Bible is the “everything” book.

I loved this post and particularly loved when you said, "Our lifestyles are to line up with Scripture, Scripture is not written to line up with our lifestyles."

That is so true, but we are becoming more and used to looking for beliefs that fit our personal preferences. Faith is a very individualistic pursuit these days.

From what I recall from the first time I read the first half of this post, both sides seemed to be talking past each other, somewhat.

@Los Angelista:

You speak truth.

@West:

You may be right.Once it got to a certain point of disrespect from SA (the point in which he misrepresented my words) I admit, I wasn't really trying to hear him.

Lucky for SA, when “I” say SHAZAM, nothing happens… ;-)
