Muslims are encouraged to learn Arabic so that they can read and understand the Koran the way it was originally written and intended. Why can't christians use the same concept? It would sure clear up a lot of confusion.
    Some churches do teach individuals to search out and effectively read the bible themselves but many do not. I agree that it is a problem

    veggie,we are truly unsure what language the NT was written in, Aramaic,Greek, Hebrew.

    the thing is this is true for nearly all works of antiquity not just the NT

    Sorry, thought I was talking to someone else who wanted a real discussion about the bible.
    "He's gone crazy," "You have to snap out of it," "Take your meds," or, "Don't be such a downer" serve only to mock, belittle, and make light of mental illness. Such phrases only continue the negative stigma and keep those who suffer from getting help. If these phrases, or phrases like them, are part of your at-hand vocabulary, you are part of the problem. #STOPtheStigma

    I'm free to have one. You had a question about why one of the rules was broken (assuming God/Jesus are the same person) and I gave a reason. Now, if we assume that the Bible is real, you'd have to remember that the bible was written by man, and that man isn't flawless, so they could have written it incorrectly. Or, you can assume that, since God has the power to create the universe, he was able to choose a form that will not harm a person by mere sight (since he can do anything). Therefore, yes, God/Jesus could be the same entity, in which one form can be seen and one can't.

    Thanks for that. The answer that is, not the pretentious garbage at the beginning. You're assuming things that aren't true.

    So it's pretentious to assume that the Bible isn't real? How can you prove that the Bible IS true? Granted, I can't prove that it isn't, but I've yet to see concrete evidence to the truth of the Bible.

    I love that there is one response that jeebus is partially god. That's a hoot above all other responses.

    It's pretentious to think anything you said is new. It's pretentious to talk to me like a six year old.

    Who says I believe the whole bible? That must be an assumption you made that holds no truth.

    It's also pretentious to think you know me.

    You've said nothing that I haven't heard before, including "God is Spiderman".
    So I don't think it isn't new, I know it. Heard it, seen it, said no to the T-shirt and bought a churro instead.
