Nice try Keith but you are not dealing with a rookie. Do yourself a favor and do some research on the real contradictions in the Bible. Nothing to do with time, context or viewpoint. Nothing to do with figurative or literal. Real contradictions. We can go over them one by one without seeking to conceal them with all the sermon stuff. Are you prepared to do that.
Keith cuts and paste too much of the bible. It's boring to read. I hear this stuff on TV everyday. Hope he doesn't convert you to Christianity one day.
Bai Skelly, I have been debating Christians since 1980 so there is no chance I will ever be a Christian. The more I learn of Christianity, the less attractive it is.
Secondly, Keith claimed that he was not giving a sermon but just involved in a thought. If it is not a sermon, then exchanges of thoughts would be welcome. So it is time for Keith to drop the preaching and deal with thoughts independently. Everyone's preaching is beautiful so there is no chance what Keith preaches is going to sound any different from another person's preaching. Take for instance, Jesus never said that he is God or any part of any Triune God. He rebuked the man for calling him good telling the man that the only one who is good is God. He also said that he of his own can do NOTHING. He by the finger of God cast out devils. Imagine a God who can of his own do NOTHING. He didn't know that the reason there were no figs on the tree was because it was not the season for figs. Imagine if you tell someone that there will get cashews in Guyana in a certain month and then it is told that cashews don't grow in that month. People will ask you what kind of Guyanese you are. Jesus thought that he will find figs on the tree and when he realized that the tree doesn't have any figs since it was not the season for figs, he arrogantly cursed the tree. Imagine gentle Jesus cursing a tree which has done no wrong but was acting exactly as God made its nature. Wonder when Keith will really have a discussion instead of a sermon.
