do you believe in the bible?.. if yes, then why do many don't know many things about it?..like what's the more accurate bible version in the world, that there's so many people added in that bible, that there's only 66 books in the bible originally, that there's only one church written in it, that even our fingerprints are written in it, that even the process of rain is explained in it...that the day to day life of a christian is explained in it, that men and women have a law about their hair... that our existence is important to God..that in order to attain everlasting life, we have to believe, we have to know the commandments, and we have to obey this and not only know this.. If not, then what's your basis of your existence, and what's the point of living?..

No I do not believe in the bible...I believe it is fictional and just a way to control the people. I do not read it and I do not take it literally. That's my opinion.

I can't tell you which is the most accurate version, but I do believe the Bible is the Word of God. Whichever version is read, the main point is the same: That Jesus Christ is the Son of God who came to us in human form to save us from our sins, and offer us eternal salavation. That is all Christians really need to agree on. I've heard many people say that "Well, I'd read the Bible if I could understand it." They don't realize that before reading the Bible, they need to pray for knowledge, guidance, and wisdom. Even then, we will not always understand the Word, but parts will jump out at us that have meaning for our own lives. We may read a passage once without understanding, but reading it again later the meaning may become clear to us. I'm not a Fundamentalist; I believe the Bible is historically accurate but it is also a work of literature that uses allegory, metaphors, parables, and other literary devices to deliver its message. It's also a book with stories of romance, mystery, intrigue, and some really beautiful poetry. And Proverbs gives us some excellent advice to apply to our lives.

in first place i do believe in the bible, because it was written by God and unly him alone he use his inspiration words and put it on man toung.and because the bible is the word of GOD in john 1:1 an word said that in the begining was the word and the word was with GOD many people dont understand it because they do not take out time to read it. and they would never do it because that is wath satan want them to think that the word of god is not true but they are making a big mistake because the word of god is real and it is living and the most acurate verse that is read in the bible they are sevral susch as st john 3:16- romans 6:23 and romans 3:23. you also have 1 john 1:9 wish said that if you confess your sinned he is just and faithful to forgive you and to clense you from all unrightousness. i hope the unswer help you all and give you a nother thinking of the bible.

yes, its really true that the bible is a part of the history.. actually, there's a discovery today in the Red Sea, that there's a raised part under the Red Sea which is believed to be the path where the Israelites took.. Thanks for your response! :D

I DO BELIEVE!! It is my armor. I NEVER go out into the world without it. I live it, love it, and breath it. This is a book inspired by the Holy Spirit who used His chosen patriarchs and prophets to write it and send it to all the nations that they too may hear the good news of the gospel of salvation and be saved.

The Bible is God's word inspired to human authors. As Jesus Christ is divine and human at the same time, also the Bible is divine -expressing eternal truth- but also human -as the authors wrote according to their own knowledge, culture, experience, temperament, etc. It is a question of Bible science, of hermeneutical interpretation and of theology, to find the eternal truth within the human words. As to that, the Bible does not pretend to be a scientific book, or, as one teacher said: "The Bible does not tell us the way the heavens march, but the way we can march to heaven." The books are often written in poetic language, deal with metaphors, parables, hyperbolic exaggeration, wich must not be taken literally but as illustrations that help us to understand. What you really must know of the Bible is this: God loves men, in the person of Jesus Christ He sacrified himself in order to make men free of evil. You can take part in this freedom, believing it and deciding to follow the example of Jesus. Look out for a church near you where you can take a Bible study, but choose one that centers in Christ, not in other teachings and that shows active love for people through its works.

first, the answer is yes i do believe in the Bible.. and many dont know many things about it because they dont read bible or doesnt heard anything from it, and i think bible are all with the same content, and the content there should remain original according to itself. Bible is the word of God, so how important the wordof God there is, is also the importance of what the bible comprises of. And God is as wise as we couldnt even recognize that he'd ableto know the past, future, and present of this world but, what he left us is the gift of free will and freedom to make a choice, and what He wants us to have is faith and love to carry through life of journey. thats d point of living LOve and Faith. love of others and faith that He loves us no matter what:)

It does not matter much whether you believe or not. But we consider we believe those religious books and so we respect them. The things which a majority of the population supports turns out to be reality and bible is reality now. No need to think whether to believe or not.
