Introduction to RD's Multi-Faith Bible Study/Debate
The purpose of this forum is to read through the Bible, chapter by chapter and discuss sections of the Bible, for the purpose of debate and learning. We will be using the Douay-Rheims, but please feel free to post alternate translations for the sake of comparison.
This isn't your regular church Bible study. There are Christians, Jews, Mulsims, Hindus, Pagans, and *gasp* atheists participating in this discussion. The Bible is both a religious book and a work of literature. It can be interpretted as many ways as their are people. Some of us have past experierence and knowledge of the Bible. Some have a greater degree of religious or literary understanding here. And some will be responding with only their own impressions.
This is not the place to argue or debate belief in the Bible to the point that it strays away from the topic. There are bound to be questions or comments in passing, but if you want to question or debate a person's beliefs back and forth, please move it to the main forum, as this disrupts the posts.
And as always, with all of our forums, here at RD, this is not the place to try to convert anyone.
