Dear Christians, let us REASON together!


Dear Believer:

I do not accept the Bible as God’s word because it contains thousand of errancies and contradictions that can not be solved, only rationalized.  I refuse to accept Jesus as my personal savior, for his behavior and teachings often expose one who should be escaped and not worshipped.  I ask that you read my views below; Christians should be“open to reason” to understand my perspective that the bible has MANY shortcomings.

reason1.  According to your Bible I am to believe that human kind is sinful for Adam and Eve ate the fruit of knowledge.  Why are we being punished for the original sin?  After all, they ate the forbidden fruit, we didn’t.  Reason would lead one to say it’s their problem, not ours.  Even the bible contradicts itself by claiming in Deuteronomy 24:16, “children shall not be punished for the sins of their fathers.”

2.  We are told that the Bible has no scientific errors and is utterly perfect/protected, yet it says the bat is a bird (Leviticus 11:13 & 19), hares chew the cud (Leviticus 11:5-6), and some fowl (Leviticus 11:20-21) and insects (Leviticus 11:22-23) have four legs.

3.  Heaven is supposed to be a perfect place.  It is of course, the place you strive for and name “salvation”.  Yet, it experienced a war (Revelation 12:7).  How can there be a war in a perfect place and if it happened before why couldn’t it happen again?  Why would I want to go to a place in which war can occur?  That’s exactly what I’m trying to escape, aren’t you?

4.  We are told salvation is obtained by faith alone (John 3:18 & 36) and then the Bible claims that it is repentance that shall save us (2 Peter 3:9) yet Jesus told a man to follow the Commandments-Matthew 19:16-1 8 (saving by works)-if he wanted eternal life. So which way is it and how do you know your belief is the correct one?

5. According to the text there are 29 cities listed in Joshua 15:21-32.  One need only count them to see that biblical math is not to be trusted.  The total is 36.

    It is good that you keep searching for truth. I work in Bible translation and I have an idea how the Scriptures – the current 66 books were put together if interested you can read about canonisation of the Bibles via google. Personally I believe that God is much more than has been indicated in the Bible ,what has been put down is only how much He revealed Himself to His prophets and servants it is probably only a dot but enough for us to get to know Him. I think if you only seriously and openly allowed God to really reveal Himself to you it would make a difference. And probably you would not need to keep bashing Christianity.

    Even in my community we have a history of how we came to be from two individuals who got 9 daughters etc. I believe the Bible that through one man sin came to the world. I have children and I am amazed at how even when they were very little could lie about things, could even fake things so as not to do something e.g eat their food and you wonder who taught them? Indeed we are conceived in sin but there is a way out. Romans 5:12-21 just as sin came through one man so life has also come through one man.

    Good luck in your search for truth I hope you come by it sooner rather than later. Personally I have found it and it is more convincing than anything else out there.
