Cut and pasted from the previous post:
"I suspect that Pom doesn't have the slightest idea who did the selection of the canonical texts, nor does can he explain how he knows those men were guided by God in their selections. If Pom *does* know, I'm sure there are others on this list who would love to know what Pom thinks he knows."
Pom's had four days to take the bait, but so far there's been not a nibble. I guess I was right; Pom doesn't have any idea how the men who selected the canonical texts decided which ones were the word of God, and which ones weren't, so I wonder how he knows that every word in the Bible comes from God if he doesn't even know who the men were who selected those words.
On a separate matter raised in this thread:
I've earlier observed that in the creation stories in Genesis One and Two the deity is called it "God" 35 times in a row without even once being called "LORD God," then suddenly, at the beginning of what some apologists think is a "summary," the name is changed to "LORD God," and is used nine times in a row without a single reference to the earlier name.
Pom attempted an explanation which could politely be described as cryptic:
Genesis 1 - 2:4a, through the eyes of Bad
Genesis 2:4b - 2:25, through the eyes of Good
Pom, what are you talking about here? What is bad and good? After you've explained this, will you please tell us if any denomination in the world shares your view?
