Quote# 9539

A non believers take on understanding and a saved person's take on understanding are two different things. Because if a non-believer truly understood what the Bible meant, they wouldn't be a non-believer.

Really? I'd always heard it the other way round:

Because if a believer truly understood what the Bible meant, they wouldn't be a believer

Rats, Julian already has this one covered perfectly. Oh, well, chalk me up as a fervent \"ditto.\"

Well Ginny, that's some mighty fine circular logic ye got there, yesiree.

Or, if a believer truly understood what the Bible truly meant, the target audience might be willing to listen to what they have to say.

Knowing a few that strive better to imitate the guy on the cross than the priests that put him there, I'd say a little humility and introspection goes a long way. Of course, they wouldn't be fundies then, would they?

Yeah, a big ditto to what Julian said.

Sure, because if we were smart, we'd agree with you because you're obviously right and only dumb people have differing opinions.

We're not the ones who need piles of apologetics to explain what the bible "really" says.

So what do the contradictions really mean?

Because, to me, they mean:
Don't take this book literally
This book is flawed
This book was badly edited from compiled material.
This book is fiction

What about people like me, that used to be 'saved' but then became an Atheist? Especially given that I became an Atheist after studying the Bible and understanding how messed up it was.
