I tried to send this earlier but it kicked back.
So theos will get this for you. Although I sent
a few other messgaes to this list earlier this morning.
Dunno where day be?

>What is true?
>>Remember that Christ spoke to the masses in parables and allegories,

>I posted a complete write up this morning on the history of the bible,
>yet it has not appeared on theos.
>>One example: you refer to the genealogy in the Bible; taking this
>>literally leads to the preposterous conclusion that our earth was created
>>an odd 6,000 years ago, a conclusion that has been clearly refuted
>>by science long ago. Deny the facts of science and you will be declared
>>pathetic, or, a dogmatic pur sang, a blinded man.
>>BTW, the genealogy of the Bible is an emblem for certain cycles of nature
>>and more..(see Isis Unveiled II, HP Blavatsky).

>>You seem to know nothing

>>of the several churches. In one word: you show complete IGNORANCE
>>of the background of your own religion!
>I am very aware that Religion will send you to Hell, but a

>>Willfully closing your eyes and shutting your ears for sincere opinions
>>of others is a SIN against the Holy Ghost.
>You do not know the Holy Ghost. You can see where He has been,
>but you do not know where He is going.
