I would like to know how people can use a book that has suffered more revisions, ommissions and alterations of every sort for hundreds of years as a basis of opinions and beliefs. I myself find it hard to take the bible as legit especially when arguing against things like homosexuality, and other issues. So how do you justify the bible or do you dismiss it as i do? (i can believe in God and not be considered a member of a religion)

The issue I have with using the bible in arguments is that if the person you are arguing with isn't a Christian than the bible isn't going to sway their mind anyway. I see that all the time on here arguing about gay marriage. The law does not take into account what the bible says. If you use to bible to defend your own personal beliefs, fine. But don't use it as evidence that something should be illegal.

Wow JC - all I ever see you how you pat yourself on the back for being a loving forgiving Christian and you say --- The devil believes in God too. Interesting just like you. huh.Â I guess you're not as perfect as you like to post that you are. Incredibly rude.
She's asking a legitimate question. There are *so* many different versions of the bible -- each different section of Christianity has altered it and "modified" it... is each modification God's work? Then why do they disagree? If you're threatened by a question just admit you don't know instead of attacking a person for asking. Your God may be perfect but his people ARE NOT. Your God did not write the bible, his fallible humans did. Are you saying that humans are as perfect as your God? They have no chance for mistakes? They would never abuse the bible for their own agenda?
