Christians have known that this was coming so they should have their ducks lined up in the damage control department.

None of which is really going to help them!

Should probably read the Bible. There are times when people created things that just went against God's design.

Please refute Jesusism.

If Jesus was God, then how can anything except direct quotes or sermons from Jesus be considered the word of God? Now do you know homosexuality is wrong, when that was from one of Paul's sermons, not Jesus'. How can you take the passage in Timothy seriously -- that the gospels are the inerrant word of God -- when you don't know how wrote that? There's no proof it came from Jesus.

How can anything in the Bible be taken seriously, when the composition of the Bible was decided in the 4th century by the First Council of Nicea. There were Christian writings that were included and many that were excluded. Therefore, the things that make up the Bible were decided upon by a random group of religious leaders, not by Jesus and not even by people associated with Jesus like Paul, and not even by the people who wrote those passages. So how can you say that anything in there is the word of God, when we *know* that the composition of the Bible was not divinely inspired.

I would agree with you up to the point of saying that not everything in the Bible is divinely inspired, but that doesn't mean that none of it is. There is a very strong appeal to authenticity in the Gospels, for example. As Einstein noted during a 1929 interview in the Saturday Evening Post, "No one can read the Gospels without feeling the actual presence of Jesus. His personality pulsates in every word. No myth is filled with such life." Note that Einstein never said that every word was true, just that the words pulsated with Jesus' personality. An intelligent person would not accept the Bible as a set of absolute truths, but they wouldn't totally dismiss it, either. Even the Council of Nicea retained actual portions of the Bible, even if they selectively decided which they would keep.

I agree. I probably should have clarified that I meant a question to literalists: how can you believe that every word is divinely inspired, when men could have left certain words out or added additional ones in when the "Bible" was created.

I think the position is more defensible that Jesus was divine, but that you can't necessarily trust anything written by anyone else as "the inerrant word of God."

That isn't what it means.

It means if someone teaches against what is taught in the gospel. The gospel is what Christ taught, and what he did.

So basically, claiming Jesus had a wife [which there was a news thing on it that recently proved itself to be wrong] would fall under what Galatians 1:6-9 is saying.

Did the other verses help you?

This is very simple. First off all, you are simplifying the history of Christianity. I would do research on Protestanism and how many Protestants died preserving the scriptures of the Bible from being changed, or how people risked their lives to prove the Catholic doctrine was incorrect.

Besides that, there are a few Bible quotes for you.

Psalm 12:6-7 [God promises to preserve his word)
Deuteronomy 4:1-2 [Nobody should add or take away from his word]
Proverbs 30:5-6 [God cares about all of his words, and do not add onto them]
Mark 13:31 [Gods word will never pass away]
Revelation 22:18-19 [Anyone who adds to his word is in big trouble]
Galatians 1:6-9 [There is only 1 true gospel]

Need any more information. just ask.

For some reason it never shows my comment that I posted, and it brings me to a technical error or something page. However, once I relog, it is back and fine. I wonder what the problem is? Im just putting this here incase nobody has noticed it or reported it yet.

Does the page say, "Well this is awkward. We are having technical difficulties"...etc?

Yes thats exactly what it says.

Do you use google chrome?
