|Reed, I read the Bible in exactly the same way. IMO, it's a blueprint for a suggested life to lead. In many ways if you detour from this blueprint you will get burned in the real sense and not just the spiritual sense.|
Funny that you "agree" but completely ignore the content of the post, and fail to answer any of the interesting questions:
1) If Gods plan is incomprehensible, how is that different (for us) from a universe that is just incomprehensible without God ? How do you distinguish between these two options ?
2) If he is really incomprehensible, why would you believe the bible was really his word ?
3) What objective criteria allows you to decide God is the God of the bible and not the daemon sultan Azathoth ?
And since the bible is apparently a "blueprint for a suggested life to lead" here's a bonus question:
4) Must adulterers, homosexuals and witches be put to death ? If you don't agree with this, how is the bible a blueprint for a suggested life to lead ? If only some parts are a blueprint, what are the other parts ? How do you decide which parts are the blueprint, and which aren't ?
