  • I've asked this a few times before and never received a decent answer.

    I mean, why do they disregard other mythologies as fake stores but elevate Hebrew myths to 'real' status? What makes them so different?

  • Since you know me.. You know I don't think it is.. lol

    In the past. I have quoted from the Gita , Guru Granth Sahib and others when a question has been posted in regards to favorite verses..etc.. They usually aren't taken well. There are some that do appreciate them, however they are far and few between to say the least.

  • Well, obviously nothing does unless you are a Christian.

  • Nothing except to the believer.. I honestly find the Book of the Dead more valid... but, that is because it is part of my path...

  • Most everyone finds their religions holy books and teachings as more valid as any other. That is why they are that religion.

  • I think the question in part stems from those who believe in Biblical scripture that tear down other beliefs and their religious texts, which are just as valid to those people as the Bible is to Christians. OP, correct me if I'm wrong.

  • The only thing that makes it valid is faith in it, or in the Christian God and Jesus through it.

    I have never used the Bible against anybody. I think if it is not helping us want to help and love each other, then it's being misused.

  • It's not, it's the book I choose to most closely study but all are valid.

  • Absolutely nothing... I've read quite a few religious texts, all of which pose similar combinations of historical account, fable and questionable materials...
