  • The bible requires interpretation so 'spewing' as you say a singular verse without context can be skewed to the persons agenda.

  • I think God expects us to live our life like he wanted us to do when he put us here on earth and man wanted us to read the bible for rules! God didnt write the bible, Man did.

  • Man wrote the Bible, but God was in them when they wrote it. In Revelation it says their shall be no adding or taking away from the scripture. Just wanted to clear that up.

    Second, when people live by the Bible they quote scriptures to explain why they live the way they live. They aren't spewing. I think it's just as bad to argue about Christianity or Religion with others than it is to "spew" Bible verses.

    BTW I don't go to church :)

  • Why would God give us a logical mind and free will if he did not want us to use it?

  • To have the mind of Christ? I think not/. God gave us a brain to use ...we need to think, not just repeat what anything or anyone tells us.
