RE: My Third Question to Christians: Is Our Bible Corrupted?
Corrupt, Bias, Agenda driven...historically, you bet! It does not even hide the fact.

When you have John 20 boldly stating its agenda "but these are written so that you may believe that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of God, and that by believing you may have life in his name.".

Its NOT and NEVER claiming to be historical..... its claiming to CONVERT, thats it. And buried in its text are mistakes, inconsistencies and gigantic fables & lore that are almost as good as the Greek Myths.

Not a single Egyptian record, not one, that discusses the MASS casualty of the dead 1st born at Passover.
Not ONE single record, not a note to a pal or official document speaking of the earthquake at Jesus' Crucifixion or the hundreds of zombies walking the earth.

Corrupt...well, if you are looking for it as a historical document and book thats inspired perfectly by an Omniblah blah blah then yeah its corrupt. If you are using it as a feelgoodery document of inspiration then as long as you stay out of the OT and dodge a bit of the NT then its fine as long as you dont try and wish historical accuracy on it.

What do you mean 'our' Bible? Not my Bible, buddy.

P.S. It's always been corrupt.

Title. Read.

The reason none of those documents is outside the Bible is that anyone who saw these things instantly converted Tongue And besides, Egyptians only recorded their *victories*, and the zombies ate anyone who saw them except bible thumpers. And the earthquake *was* recorded, in the writings of the Hopi Indians of America...

Hehehe...

This forum isn't really the place for a discussion among Christians.

Skepticism is not a position; it is an approach to claims.
Science is not a subject, but a method.

OH! So we are a Facebook Science Experement for KC? Thats not very nice.

I have alway though this posts to fellow christians on this board was odd, i just assumed he knew that many of us were Ex Christians so our opinions were somewhat valid.

I had no idea he was taking our posts elswhere. Is that copyright infringement ? :-)

No he doesn't post our stuff on FB, he posts *their* stuff here... or at least, an account of what was said... I guess though KC you might want to stop doing that - as they might themselves be a bit bleak if they ever found out Big Grin Although they're not named so it's all good fun...

All my notes are public, so anyone can see them. They give up all privacy rights when they post on my notes.

Also, this is how much I care if they get angry with me.

RE: My Third Question to Christians: Is Our Bible Corrupted?
TL;DR the OP, but to answer the question, the Bible is not corrupted so much as written with false motives to begin with.
The OT was begun as rationalization for why the Canaanites should rename their Zeus-like Father God El to YHWH and then justify why a Canaanite Warlord named David should be a credible leader to a bunch of small villages. Then more writing later to further justify why the almighty YHWH and his peeps lost out to the Babylonian gods.

I wonder if you'd be brave enough to encourage your Facebook peeps to watch Nova's The Buried Secrets of the Bible.
