Your response is typical of mis-interpretation. Look at the whole story,
commentary, fact which sorround the quotes,
before passing judgement or interpretation.
If I take a book, read it sacred or not, and
interpret 'one-line verses', to promote a
certain position. Then this act becomes 'dimensional' and relevant to the
credible nature of the original text. Another
words, El_Criollo; continuously I have ex-
pressed concern about placing priority to
questionable moral conduct, such as those
involving Gays, Gambling, Abortion, and Sexual conduct ahead of the main purpose
of Religion. When political contributions, are used primarily for this purpose, which alienates society, away from the love of God,
yes people should be concerned. Reference
to "a grade level education", the term rational or logical discussion become in-
comprehensible. I underlined Rational and Logical as reason for using parables or simplified reasonsing, in order to get people
to act. Now, what does this have to do with reading or writing? This is what is meant by mis-interpretation. To state that the Bible
is the sole Word Of God is in-accurate. The
Bible was written by men, which were inspired
by God. There is a difference. I also presented the fact of no women priesthood. In
some Christian Denomination, Women are taking
on more important roles, such as Reverend.
this goes back to mis-interpretation of the
Bible, which at the women did not receive the same priveledges, and viewed sub-ordinate
to men. Unable to take leadership position in
Religion. Feedback does provide solutions.
This is why constructive comments of this discussion are being printed for further
discussion. Dimensional means a parallel
act with similiar foundation or origin...
The act of interpretation is Dimensional,
and thus effects the credibility of the
source. Because of historical mis-interpretations of The Bible; yes it is
accurate, but not 100%.
Working to create greater
Harmony and Success between all God loving people regardless of Individual Faith...
