    Not so much stirring the pot... I just would prefer my food to not stick, perhaps there would be a more educated take on these things than that which I have thus far gathered...

    Internet Sacred Text Archive Home

    There is more coming about... The Dark Bible: Sex, Obscenities, Filth
    that has always been not recognized, not understood...

    *wondering how it is that third world cultures are such a mystery to the supposed 'well learned' ones*

    Cringing? Anyone??

    Went to your clinks and I'm having a difficult time understanding what you are trying to discuss.

    What exactly is your point here?

    Well, I'm not so foolish as to assume posters haven't been where I have, but for those that have... the definition of Christianity could very well be up for interpretation. Especially considering the political views in which our bible supports. Our politicians are the puppets it seems of the powers that be. What or who are the powers that be? It seems that is all dependent upon what or who is delivering us idiots from ourselves in the most eloquent and up to date fashions.

    That really didn't help me understand what your point is any better.

    When did books written by Edgar Rice Burroughs become sacred text?

    Going to try to break this up alittle see if I can get clarification so this actually makes sense:

    And where exactly have you been?

    And how is the definition of Christianity up for interpretation? One accepts Christianity when they accept the Testimony of the Apostles and Prophets, that Jesus Christ, the Son of God, suffered and died for the sins of the world and rose from the grave, and by accepting that, they choose to become disciples of Jesus Christ and follow Him. Everything else is an appendage to that.

    What exactly do you think is up to interpretation?

    The Bible doesn't really support any one political views. It's not a political book. It's a book that records the testimonies and histories of the House of Israel written from the time of Moses onward. What political viewpoints do you think the Bible supports?

    And what powers are those? What does this have to do with the Bible?

    So you don't even know who these powers are? Can you name someone in these "powers that be"?

    My problem with understanding you is because you aren't writing very clearly and coherently. You assume, as most people do, that people understand things the way you do and that your tend to skip key points that would enlighten the rest of us with what you are trying to say. I can't seem to find any clear points. Once sentence to the next seems to be completely unrelated. I know that when you write them you clearly see some relationship, because otherwise you wouldn't write it. But if you want to help us understand you are going to have to clarify what those relations are. You are going to have to speak much more indepth.

    Also, some of your sentences are vague. It's not clear what you're trying to say with the sentence. One word or two for example, doesnt make a sentence. Take this one from the OP:

    It's not a complete sentence. I can still understand what you are saying here. But the problem it's completely random. What does it have to do with the links you posted?

    And why on earth would we be cringing?

    As far as I can tell from your OP, you've found something disturbing in the links you shared.
    It's raised some questions in your mind.

    Which part of the texts you read bother you. We're all trying to find the context for your questions.

    You make reference to your own experience.....what exactly is that?

    I would like to know as well but I fear we will never know what she was talking about.
