The Biggest Joke Book on Earth

By Carl S ~

Back in the 1960's there was a popular TV series called “Get Smart.” The show was a spoof of James Bond-type counter-espionage. Agent 86, a.k.a. “Smart,” was played by Don Adams. I didn't see many episodes, but I do remember a gag he often repeated. When Smart reported to the head of his agency, he would sometimes say things like, “Would you believe there were 200 of them?” There would be a long pause, and then, “Would you believe 100? What about 75?”

Would you believe this report: a guy fed 5000 men with 5 loaves of bread and two fishes? Well, would you believe 50 loaves and 200 fishes? Would you believe 500 men, and no women and children? Didn't you believe me when I told you he also walked on water? Would you believe me if I said the lake was frozen? Would you believe a man lived to be 400 years old, and then he built a gigantic boat, when any 100 year old man would have trouble building a ship model? What else?

Even Christian Fundamentalists can't Agree on the Basics

By Desert Boy ~

I have one point to make that I don't think has been covered on your website. Why is there so much disagreement among Christian Fundamentalists on basic doctrine?

Common points of dispute include predestination v free-will, Eternal v Conditional Security, Lordship v Salvation by Faith and KJV Onlyism v Modern Bible Translation Supporters. In other words, some of the different groups of Christian fundamentalists regard each other as unsaved. For instance if you enter "Billy Graham False Teacher" into google, the number of hits is staggeringly high.

Some Christians I speak to about this blame the church and human nature for this confusion. However, I think The Bible, God's so-called handbook, must take the blame. All the above groups who oppose each other so passionately have earnestly studied the Bible with all their heart, all their mind, all their soul and all their strength. But they have come to different conclusions because of the confusing nature of "God's operating manual"

Can you imagine what would happen if an electrical equipment manufacturer issued an operating manual for an electric drill that was as irresponsibly confusing as the Holy Bible?

I don't think there's any more to say about the matter. Thank you for your attention.
