Are U Living By The Book?
« on: January 12, 2003, 01:38:17 PM »
It’s funny to me how all religions base all there beliefs on what is written in man made books but some how they call it the word of a high power or a God. Like the bible... I love the bible and I think the stories in it teach good morals and ethics, but I know that the bible and many other books of different religious orders are edited and have been edited through out time to suit different societies and cultures and really there is no way to know what is fact and what is made up in those books. I mean think about it, most people today that read the bible and live by it, are reading what a long chain of editors thought was right, not anything that can be confirmed today as being fact, the earliest editor of the bible known to man is probably King James, and he wasn't the first, but how long has it been since he died, and how many other versions of the book have arose since then… think about that when u decide to say, “this is the word of God” and this is the way it should be cuz it’s in this bible or what ever book the holy karam or what ever book it is.

I think most people readily admit that the bible was altered, I believe it's even had books deleted SINCE King James retranslated it.

BTW, King James gets a bad rap.  He didn't translate the bible to delete books, and fit his causes... those before him sometimes did, but King James, Honestly, Loved God, and put together a HUGE council of scholars, to translate the known texts of the bible from the original languages into a good, as accurate as possible english translation.  We owe him a lot.

The way I look at the bible is, sure, it's been altered, but it's such a holy book, they could never totally change the message, or delete all the truth from it.  I constantly am amazed at some of the stuff that is written in there.  I think most people cherish it, even edited, because it's the best we have.


As a note, also, mormons believe that there was a prophet in 1830 who received a buried book called the book of mormon, which contained many of the things delted out of the bible.  Mormons believe that with the bible, and the book of mormon, by comparing the two and studying both, you have the total restored gospel.  Peace~

So your saying it's better to live your life by your favorite rap cd?  Thug Life?  Or better yet, live your life the way that they say is "cool" on commercials?  Or, better yet, live your life the way that will get you that fine girl you always wanted?  Or live your life the way that will get you the most women or money?  Or, live your life the way your mommy said so.  Or, live your life by your own mind, make yourself God, make your own selfish desires your God?  Or, live your life by the laws set for you by your United States Government; push everything as far as you can but don't push it so far that you end up in jail!!!

I don't live by the bible or whatever, but I think you should pick the good things out of it if you do live by it and you're right that not everything can be confirmed by today. The book has been written so many years ago... So you just should pick out what's good and add your own morals to it (your life) I think.

I live life according to my own book. I've seen a lot of shit and been through a lot as well. I've got a good understanding of good and bad, and act accordingly. I respect the bible a great deal. I think it teaches people great morals and lays out a framework for people to follow.

Some follow their own giudance.  They accept what they have been through individual as the whole eternal truth from which to base their life and desicions.  Me, on the other hand, I believe Allah to be the wisest!  I am a slave to him.  Al-hamdu-illah!

I hear ya mauzip n trauma...writing your own book is my path but its good too put notes from other books into your own book... I'm not a very religious person but I try to learn about all the religions because there is so much good advise in each of them. You just have to filter it and find what's most applicable to you. And infinite: I don't think that's what he was implying. -=shrugs=-
there's my 2 cents

I Try that more & more but its harder & harder but I think everyone has the same amount of luck in life, living by the book improves it, why? because you worked for it, you worked on your self to be a better person & ppl will be respecting you more & more... If you been to a ruff time then you really should be glad because it will maintain the same in a positive way.. There is nobody out there that is more lucky then you, neither are they less lucky but when your life comes to an end you will have got the same amount of luck as your father & hes father & so on... I try to enjoy life as it is, sometimes there a bad times but I focus on the good times to get to tru the ruff stages...

There is a book that interprets all other books and that is your own conscience and heart. It is your book and it is a living book written in a strange foreign language that people can spend their whole life studying and learn but one word, such is life, but the more of this language you learn, the easier it gets to read your book.

lol @ everyone praising holy books for their ethics and morals. Have you ever thought of how devastating, despiritualising and conflicting with human nature the whole concept of religion and its ethical codes is? Mystics...  :grumpy:

Yes, I'm living by a book, but it damn sure isn't one filled with fancy stories about a supreme power telling me what's right and what's not. Think about human nature and you will realise there's no other way for humans to live in spiritual healthiness.

The Bible is one of the dirtiest books written. So nah it ain't all there for ethics and morals. But it's a belief and why do people always gotta knock it?

Of course shit get's edited. Over the years, everythang, every book does. But it's the point to get across.

the holy Quran has never been edited...

imo if every person from any religion sticks to what their book says we would have a great world...
