Everybody's wrong.
Hey im christian but i believe both athiest and christians are wrong about the bible. I believe the bible is a book similar to budism but its fundamentals start with having rules. I believe in the end all god wants you do be is a virtuous compassionate giving person.

RE: Everybodies wrong.
Does this view of yours apply to all life or just human beings?

I feel so much, and yet I feel nothing.
I am a rock, I am the sky, the birds and the trees and everything beyond.
I am the wind, in the fields in which I roar. I am the water, in which I drown.

RE: Everybodies wrong.
Welcome to the forum. I find your perspective refreshing, but I can't help but wonder how that jibes with Christianity.

You've caught me in a Socratic mood.

So it's about having rules, and the Bible provides rules which are the fundamentals to being a virtuous compassionate giving person? Do I have this right?

Is sentencing homosexuals to death one of those rules, as in Leviticus? Merely complete ostracization of homosexuals instead, as in Romans? Commanding women to be silent in church and not permitting them to lead?

If so, how do these rules advance people being virtuous, compassionate, and giving?

If not, why do so many Christians come away from the Bible with these lessons? Is it that there is something fundamentally wrong with all the Christians misinterpreting the Bible, or is it a flaw in how the Bible presents the intended rules that makes it easily misunderstood? In either case, is reading the Bible a good and reliable way of arriving at these rules, or is reading it highly prone to leave people in error on this subject?

RE: Everybodies wrong.
First prove that your god exist. Then you can start talking about what he want.

The first revolt is against the supreme tyranny of theology, of the phantom of God. As long as we have a master in heaven, we will be slaves on earth.

What evidence do you have that your view on The Bible is correct?

RE: Everybodies wrong.
Have you actually read the Bible? Nowhere in there does it say that is *all* God wants for his creations. If God does exist, He wouldn't want you tweaking His words in his book. In fact, it specifically says in his magical book not to do that very thing.

As a humanist as well as an atheist I can go with the idea of honesty and compassion and raise you morality and ethics.

Strip the Bible of all its supernatural stuff, Bronze and Iron Age Middle Eastern cultural values and references, primitive, legal and penal codes, desert style eating rules and all the rest of the archaic and environmental stuff and....

Translate what is left into modern terms there is some good anecdotal advice in there - - somewhere.

"Do unto others as you would have them do unto you" sort of sums it up. Unless you are a masochist of course.

Tomorrow is precious, don't ruin it by fouling up today.

Well then I have nothing to worry about. I am all of those things and more.

So you're not taking the position that everyone has to believe in Jesus, then. Correct?
