But seriously, my patronizing is nothing personal. I'm a lover, not a fighter. <3

Don't know. I don't have an answer for that. Same reason why He chose the Jews as His people, I suppose.

Have you ever read/listened to any of Bart Ehrman's work? He is a renown biblical scholar and does not usually present anything that is not already the scholarly consensus. Anyways, thoughts? How do you reconcile some of the examples in the clip above. His books go into way more detail and I highly recommend them.

I can't view it at work. Summary?

I think the conclusions of the bible are heinous, errant and a complete fabrication but at least he doesn't sugar coat the conclusion. So unless you are fluent in Greek, I doubt he needs your help. Smile Unless, of course, God speaks to you directly through your dog, in which case, do proceed! Bowing

Well, thanks.

But, I read Greek too. Plus I have a brother that is an expert in Greek. So, I'm good Smile

The Bible and Faith do not harden peoples heart, MAN does !!

So God generally prefers rednecks, inbreds, homophobes, poorly educated and in many cases, mentally ill? Because that pretty much describes this region that is almost it's own country (known as the South) in which I unfortunately but also lovingly reside. (No offense to my fellow Southerners but you know it's true!!!!)
