Overall I’ve been blessed with fairly good health. I do have some back problems from pushing around vehicles manually. Also my teeth have always been a problem. With age I find I do tire easier . I never was a
" wake up bright eyed and bushy tailed " sort.
[QUOTE=marloyd;2621792] I don’t believe in the good book I just don’t believe in a book created by “MAN”,and a church also created by “MAN”.Man has change the book to fit his needs .[/QUOTE]
I believe the original texts the Bible was written from were directly guided by God. Man was only the instrument . Think of it as God at the keyboard & the man writing as the computer & the “paper” as the screen.
The men who wrote the scriptures from the old testament to the new testament had no choice or control over what they wrote.
I believe God directly wrote the original ten commandments on stone tablets.
Men have taken some liberties in translating but I believe God directs this. Most translators are believers so will not stray too far off because they fear what God might do.
I know that law has gotten out of hand but the basic laws are Bible based . Otherwise there would be only need for “the law of the jungle”.
In other words I take what I want if I’m strong enough to do it.
No moral laws because there would be no reason to be moral . Since there would be nothing that was wrong . No punishment in the afterlife .
God is what keeps some men from doing just that,
[QUOTE=marloyd;2621792]I do believe there is a GOD, how else can create the earth with the flowers and cell animals with complex systems. [/QUOTE]
Since you believe this & I’m going to expand on it. God created the universe both the material one we can see at least a lot of through science. Telescopes ,etc. There is also a spiritual universe . Heaven & spiritual beings we can’t see. Both God & the good angels live there .
Then there are Satan & the other fallen angels that also live there but outside of heaven. Maybe in hell .
Both can enter the material universe to do good or evil.
If you believe God created these universes then why not believe God directly controlled the scripture that has been written?
