So you think that God saw mankind come together as one, and said oh s**t if they all come together and work as whole then there is nothing that they can not do! I need to go down there confuse and scatter them all? Seems kind of messed up...
Lol, in specific or in general. Do you think that the biblical account is real/accurate? I ask this because (you're a Jehovah's witness right?) I know that Muslims disagree with the biblical account and also because I read the parts dealing with it in the bible, and I'm like wtf!?
Except that Jesus himself said(Matthew 5:17-19) do not think that I have come to change or do away with the laws given to Moses and that you all should observe them until the day you die. Also, if it were possible to speak to someone from way back in ~77AD (or whenever close to there, or sooner/around the time Paul went around) and you told them that you live in the future by 2,000 years and the world is still wicked and God hasn't come yet; they would be totally confounded and astonished. This is because of the simple fact that they did not foretell some far off future event, they literally thought it was going to be any day now, tomorrow or the next day(or within one's lifetime, etc), not hundreds of years away (let alone thousands). Even the Jewish prophecy didn't take thousands of years.
Sorry, that probably sounds like I thought that was an argument of yours or something. I simply read it in some links you posted in support of something or other Biblical, and was curious about dates and such, as aforementioned.
Thank you so much! You seriously have no idea how happy you made me. I hope you have the best Christmas (or whatever holiday you may celebrate) that anyone can have, for you are one of the best people that i know.
I've got a question for ya: How could the Bible have begun being written in the 16th century BCE when Judaism - essentially the primeval root of Christianity - wasn't even around in any form resembling its modern version until the 6th century BCE? Perhaps this is not your particular belief, but doesn't this say that the Christian bible began in a theological climate of Semetic polytheism, something that might be greatly/totally antithetical to general Christianity aside from the generic moralities and histories documented by most religions stemming from the region?
I just find it hard to believe that the Christian bible begins being written in a time and place where not even Judaism yet existed.
