    Has anyone ever seen jesus touch someone physically? Can I see the effect he is having around the world with so many people in pain? Dying slow horrible deaths? Fighting against each other in his name? Surly if his is so powerful he could stop this as quick as a flick of a switch? Hurricanes are not caused by humans ie global warming FACT. They are a natural disaster, which if this world was created, the ingredients for such disasters were created with it.

    Oh, but you forget, he is going to fix all that. And it`s happening soon, the signs are there, all the pain and horror...the signs are there and...they have been...for 2000 years..

    Luke 24:50-52 Then He led them out as far as Bethany, and lifting up His hands He blessed them. And while He was blessing them, He left them and was carried up into heaven. After worshiping Him, they returned to Jerusalem with great joy.

    Whoa! That one struck me.

    Two weeks ago I asked this question: "How, in the year 2004, can people still believe that the bible is 'reliable', 'infallible' and without 'contradictions'"? Questions have come to me asking "what contradictions?" To go through the thousands of contradictions in the Old and New Testament would take more space than is available in this entire newspaper. So, only a few to get your brain working. Which of the following contradictions is the one "without error", "infallible"? It cannot be both.

    At what time in the morning did the women visit the tomb? At the rising of the sun (Mark 16:2) or when it was yet dark (John 20:l). Was the tomb open or closed when they arrived? Open (Luke 24:2).Closed (Matt. 28:l).

    Who came? Mary Magdalene alone (John 20:1) or Mary Magdalene and the other Mary (Matt. 28:1) or Magdalene, Mary the mother of James and Salome (Mark 16:1), or Magdalene, Joanna, Mary the mother of James and other women (Luke 24:10).

    Did Mary Magdalene know Jesus when he first appeared to her? Yes, she did (Matt: 28:9), or No, she did not. (John 20:14).

    The "Annunciation" took place after Mary was pregnant (Matt 1:18-21) or the "Annunciation" took place before Mary was pregnant (Luke 1: 26-31)

    Jesus was born during the reign of Herod, who died 4 b.c. (Matt 2:1), or Jesus was born at the time of Quirinius, in 6 a.d. (Luke 2;2).

    Jesus was crucified when it was the third hour (Mark 15:25) or it could not have been the third hour since he was still before Pilate (John 19:14) At the hearing before Pilate, Jesus answered no charges (Matt 27:14) or Jesus responds directly to all of Pilates questions (John 18:33-37)?

    The mass of contradictions are comical.

    Believers are told in Mark 16-17 that they can "drink any deadly thing and it shall not hurt them". For those wanting to 'prove' the "reliable bible without error" try a little arsenic and see how "reliable" it is. Or you might try playing with a few rattlesnakes to test the "without error" bible.

    The Old Testament is such a mass of contradictions it would take 500 pages to document them all. Which of the two creation myths is the one without error? Genesis 1:27, man being created last in the sequence, or Genesis 2:7 with man created first in the sequence. It cant be both, so flip a coin.

    In this day of biblical scholarship anyone who still thinks the bible is "infallible"... or "reliable" or "without error" should change what they are drinking or smoking. They are living a full bubble off plumb. #

    I agree with this gentleman - the Bible is just a book. BB

    In the words of an old Slade song:

    Bizzy! Your mother would have a hissy fit if she read this!!

    Holy jumped up Jehosphat! Don't tell her, BEKSBKS!


    PMJ, Talking about feeling the wind, we can all feel the hot air you're blowing!!! Since I believe you're a man with heart and courage, just ask the Great Wizard of Oz for a brain that reasons on logic instead of blind faith. That's a prayer worth answering and your chances of getting it are far greater than the fictional Jesus teaching us to pray to some tribal mountain Baal God named Jehovah.

    Oy. PMJ some 12 year old kid who just likes to light fires and run away? If he/she should return, my adivce is to" read the freakin Bible before you spout off and embarrass yourself again. I say this in love...really.

  • greendawn

    Jehovah is not mentioned at all in the New testament Scriptures and the life of the church is centred around the name of Christ not jehovah.

  • Satanus

    Perhaps he was speaking to his higher self. Try praying to yourself.
