Christianity Exposed

Left alone, I would never touch a bible. I don’t even know why my brother has one.

However, we have to read John Steinback’s East of Eden, and part of it entails reading the first few chapters of Genesis.

Here’s what it says in chapter one:

“And God said, Let us make man in our image, after our likeness: and let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over the cattle, and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth.” (Genesis 1:26)

Notice the “our” that God uses. This implies that there is more than one God-type entity in existance, which effectively places Christianity in a group with the Hindus and other polytheistic religions. I’m probably not the first one to notice this, but what happens now?

Other notes: chapter 5 is extremely ridiculous. So and so lived x abnormally large amount of years, “and he died.” There’s more, but I’ll hold my peace for now.

Edit: In response to Gloria

True, perhaps I should read the entire Bible first. I believe I will have to soon enough … bliddy Bible cards. But yes, I can believe that “the earth is a bazillion years old” but not that people can live to 890. He must’ve eaten from that forbidden “Tree of Life” or something in order to do so.

    “our” image is a reference to the triune God. Maybe you have heard of the Trinity — Father, Son, and Holy Spirit? The three in One. Later in the Bible it says “The Lord our God the Lord is One”
    Jesus later goes on to say in the New Testament “you have seen me — you have seen the Father.” (my paraphase) The problem with just reading a few verses is that you don’t get the whole picture.
    So you probably have no trouble believing the earth is a bazillion years old but you can’t imagine people living a really long time?
    I encourage people who have never read the Bible to start with John. I know it isn’t part of your requirement but why not give it a quick read?

    i agree with you, moufflet .
    God is just someone who
    isn’t real, “some idiot created a book
    and decided 2000 years later another idiot would
    believe it.”

    Dont read it: Let us make words in our image, after our likeness: and let them have dominion over the verbs of the sea, and over the adjectives of the air, and over the adverbs, and over all the epsilons, and over every creeping thing that creepeth upon the ocean of letters.
