Do You Believe The Bible Is True?
This is where the rubber meets the road, and you will have to just start really studying, or not, you can just drop it and ignore the bible, it’s up to you. I set out to read the bible once in 90 days, I ended up …
…studying it for 3 years, and reading it in its entirety several times. There were a whole bunch of things I didn’t like in the bible, but they all went away when I was willing to look deeper, and try to understand. Remember the Bible is a History book also, so just because it says “A person did a thing” doesn’t mean it in endorsing it. When a newspaper writer writes about some horrific crime, do you think the writer is endorsing the crime, or just trying to do the best job they can to expose it? AND right here someone screams out, but there is genocide in the bible! And this is the tricky part, but if you have come to this point, if you believe there is a God, then that God has a standard. No matter what you think that standard is, every god will have one, Well the bible makes it clear, Genesis 9:6 “Whoever sheds the blood of man, by man shall his blood be shed, for God made man in his own image.” if someone willingly kills another person in cold-blood, then that person’s is a danger and must be expunged from the land. Not accidentally killed, Exodus 21:12-14 “He who strikes a man so that he dies shall surely be put to death. “But if he did not lie in wait for him, but God let him fall into his hand, then I will appoint you a place to which he may flee. But if a man schemes and acts willfully against his neighbor to kill him, you must take him away from My altar to be put to death.” All those nations and cities of people in Canaan, they were practicing human sacrifice, and many, if not most were performing child sacrifice. They were doing perversions with animals. These people were murdering willingly. They needed to be removed to cleanse the land and the earth of the wickedness.
