Arguing with the Bible

For the things that are not spelled out, it is OK to say we do not know. It is one of the traits of a man to try and have all the answers, and we will sometimes invent to cover up that we do not know. This is not the place for that.

Arguing with the Bible

As I read my Bible for the first time in years, I began to see verses that do not line up with the idea of a triune god. I am aware that Satan will disguise himself as a good voice, so I prayed about it and asked God to show me if this was from him or not. The more I prayed, the more verses I saw. I told a good friend about it, a real prayer warrior, and she prayed for me. And then even more verses stood out. I’ve talked to my minister about it and wrote down my thoughts as they developed. Then I started making a list of verses in Excel so that I could lay them out side by side and in columns, depending on the topic. Then I got the idea to write this book. Well, I say write it, but it pretty much has written itself. It has been almost too easy. Ideas come to me, mostly while I’m taking a bath oddly enough, and I started writing as soon as I get to my PC. I guess when I was an engineering tech, all the ISO documentation I generated was God training me to understand and document complex subjects. So what is my goal? Since most churches will acknowledge that there are at least two man-made concepts that came out of Nicaea, I would like it if the churches took another look at things. We should base our beliefs only on what scripture says and what the Spirit opens up to us as we read. Everything that we need to know is there and is clear. For the things that are not spelled out, it is OK to say we do not know. It is one of the traits of a man to try and have all the answers, and we will sometimes invent to cover up that we do not know. This is not the place for that.

In this book, Daniel Cohen explores the connections between arguments and metaphors most pronounced in philosophy, because philosophical discourse is both thoroughly metaphorical and replete with argumentation.

Drawing on recent discussions of quotations in the fields of rhetorics, linguistics, and literary studies, Stanley argues that Paul's explicit appeals to Jewish Scriptures must be analyzed as rhetorical devices that seek to influence the thoughts, feelings, and actions of a first-century audience, an approach that requires a different set

As an old proverb puts it, "Two Jews, three opinions." In the long, rich, tumultuous history of the Jewish people, this characteristic contentiousness has often been extended even unto Heaven. Arguing with God is a highly original and utterly absorbing study that skates along the edge of this theological thin
