Maybe, I am not really sure Blade, since you refuse to show me where you think I am wrong, just proclaim me wrong and move on.

Lori...I believe I just got through saying we see things differently.

"Two birds of a different feather????

we do see the Bible, GOD and the Gospel of Jesus Christ differently.

Acts 17:11.."These were more noble than those in Thessalonica, in that they received the word with all readiness of mind, and searched the scriptures daily, whether those things were so."

and I said that I wasn't sure about that...I said we should read Genesis as we would any work, as per the nature of the work, iow's poems have clues that they are poems and should be read that way...you disagreed, so I asked you why you think a parable should be read as literal and you accused me of being wrong yet again...so I have no idea what you believe and when I ask you to explain you run off and hide.  A literal understanding of scripture would mean that we read it for what it says, as in if it is a polemic, we read it as a polemic if it is a parable we read it as a parable, etc. you claim to read it literally but then deny we should read it for what it says it is...how can anyone follow what you believe given this double talk of yours?

Wow. Your good at misdirecting what I actually said but the words I spoke are still here for anyone to read them.

To read something "Polemic" is an aggressive attack on or refutation of the opinions or principles of another.   

Therefore, You read Genesis/Bible to attack or refute what GOD has authored.

I read it to understand what He actually said without any though of refuting it..

Another Nice try, Lori

notice the cut and pasted definition...a strong verbal or written attack on someone or something....notice how it disagrees with you version..where did your definition come from?  Here is the definition from Websters...: an aggressive attack on or refutation of the opinions or principles of another
b: the art or practice of disputation or controversy —usually used in plural but singular or plural in construction
2: an aggressive controversialist : DISPUTANT ...and if you remember, I pointed out that the "attack" was NOT against God or any other such accusation of yours but aginst the Idea that it is OKAY to worship creation rather than the creator...something you did not refute at all...so why do you think it is okay to worship the creation rather than the creator since you want to continue with your assertions without rebuttal of the point I made?  You see, the refute is NOT what scripture says, but rather that it is NOT okay to worship creation...which I said and you launched into this attack, so I can only assume you think it is okay to worship creation rather than the creator, either that or you have not heard a word I said, most likely because you are afraid a woman might teach you something.

I am in awe of creation and I am fascinated with God's handiwork but I recognize the source who is God.  ;D
