About this deal

It's clear that the Bible itself takes the words of God VERY CERTAINLY. Basically warns of being brushed off to hell for messing with God's words through the Prophets and Apostles.

A faith like that is in constant battle mode, like a cornered honey badger. Or like a watchman on the battlements scanning the horizon from sun up to sun down for any threat. And soon you forget what faith looks like when you're not fighting about it.Doubt can certainly leave us empty and frightened, but that is precisely the benefit of doubt: it exposes the folly that strong faith means you need to 'know what you believe,' that the more faith you 'have,' the more certain you are. Doubt is what being cornered by our thinking looks like. Doubt happens when needing to be certain has run its course. This writer fails to see why this discovery was, in the words of Kline, a "debacle". Is it not, on the contrary, a great triumph?... Much of this book was so “spot on” that I’m not even going to comment much on it (He recommends replacing the words “faith” and “believe” in our reading of the Bible with the word “trust” - since the concept that is most often b said to him, ‘If they do not hear Moses and the Prophets, neither will they be convinced if someone should rise from the dead.’”

Christians treat each other so badly and in such harmful ways that it calls into question the validity of Christianity – or even whether God exists” (140-143). We're human, in other words. We can't help but think of God in broken and limited ways, as creatures limited by time and space. You can't just love and trust Jesus blindly and liberally. Or you might get a Muslim Jesus, a Mormon Jesus, A Buddhist enlightenment Jesus, A Social Justice Warrior Dead-Jew 1st century Zealot Jesus.It seems to me that the principal goal of the whole of mankind must be the knowledge and development of the wonders of God, and that this is the reason that God gave him the empire of the globe.
