What story in the bible ministers to your heart the most. For me it is Bartemeus (The blind mind at the pool) because regardless of how much people tried to deter him, he made sure that he got his miracle. What about you?

did you read the whole four chapters of Jonah? or do you just know the Sunday school version?
---aka on 3/4/12

mi, why did you refer to johah as a "her". just wondered.
---shira4368 on 3/3/12

I like the story of matter how hard Jonah tried to hide form God-God still seek her.and when God found her,Jonah was able to know God intimately through life's lessons (being in the belly of a whale)

I do not believe in atheist. Can any body give proof that atheist exists? It could be that the words written with the name atheist here came into being by a Big Bang millions of years ago.
---Eloy on 2/23/12

Believer, the first story that made a big impact in my Christian walk was the story of "The valley full of dry bones" In the vision Ezekiel did as he was told by the Lord and the dead bones became a living great army (v.10).
---Mark_V. on 2/23/12

An omnipotent god would find a way to clue everyone in to his existence and his nature.

Since even his believers cannot agreed, then god must not exist or be impotent in this world, ie, not exist.

He has just many refuse to listen. Like telling people smoking cigarettes will hurt you many do it any way.

The fact people do not believe does not prove GOD does not exist. Anymore then people do not believe that the Holocost happen proves it did not.
---Samuel on 2/22/12

Athiest, there is nothing wrong with our Omnipotent God. But many things wrong with man. The reason we don't all agree on everything has many reasons, and none because of God. Each of us have a very different make. Some smarter then others. Some are just beginning their walk with Christ and know little about the whole of Scripture. Some have more experience because they have taken lessons on certain subjects others have not. Also the Spirit reveals certains things to individuals others are not ready to receive. And then there is the reason that not all Christians are believers. It is just like you, not all athiest believe in the same things you do, the only thing you agree is that there is no God. But each has his own reasons.
---Mark_V. on 2/22/12


//An omnipotent god would find a way to clue everyone in to his existence and his nature.//

a good professor only needs to teach what he knows, he should not have to make students listen.

the omnipotent God has already found a Way. Not everybody listens.

//Since even his believers cannot agreed, then god must not exist or be impotent in this world, ie, not exist.//

since there are humans that believe in peace cannot agree, then peace must not exist or be impotent in this world.

it is probably the latter. just because we are impotent when it comes to peace, it still exists.

Now you are running in another direction.

Hi John.usa, thanks for clarifying, have a nice day. :)
---Mary on 2/22/12

The story of the Woman at the Well because Jesus didn't look upon her for the harlot that she was, He saw her what she was to become, the Bride of Christ.

By the way, it's not the story of the woman at the well, it's the story of Jesus at the well. Why? Because God was there first.
---anon on 2/22/12

atheist, Every prophecy has come to pass so far, which is over 3,000 verses of fulfilled prophecies. And since "all" not "some", but "all" has come to pass so far, leads us to know that surely the rest of what God said will also come to pass, exactly and presisely as he has said and recorded, the end form the beginning. Therefore it is not merely my belief for God has established his words long before I was born on earth. Also principles of science were recorded in the Bible long before they were confirmed experimentally: earth being round, life in the blood, the earth's gravity, etc. Now if you still want to dis such an overwhelming body of evidence, well then that is just your own foolishness to do so.

(Although I find the inconsistency of believers' beliefs remarkable.) -- atheist

master of the obvious. jesus said that many who do things in His name will be turned away because He does not know them and recognize their lawlessness which they call reason.
---aka on 2/21/12

Atheist, I'll play along with your assertion that you are an atheist. You are succeeding in your efforts, knowing that people whose beliefs are questioned are much less likely to change them than they are to defend them. So you are strengthening their faith, which I have no doubt is your true aim.

The Holy Bible is literal write.

That is your belief. It is not fact. Maybe some things in there coincide history or archeological finds, but that does not prove that it is all true.

Saying it is true because god said it is true in a book said to be written by god is proof of nothing.
---atheist on 2/21/12

atheist, The Holy Bible is literal history, with specific place names and specific peoples and specific occurences confirmed, verified and proven through archeological digs, and also by other external nonBiblical sources all confirming the legitimacy and veracity of the Holy Scripture. The Holy Bible is a record of proven truth: now I am not talking about the new fandangle knock-off bibles which are penned by sinners, but I am talking about the copies of Holy Scripture penned word for word from the mouth of God dictated to his holy prophets. There is only One Author, the Everlasting Lord himself dictated to each one of his creatures exactly what to write.
---Eloy on 2/21/12

Eloy, I think he is.
---John.usa on 2/21/12


You are half right. My questions are meant to get you to think through your beliefs. (Although I find the inconsistency of believers' beliefs remarkable.)


To claim that the Bible is history is quite a stretch. It is well known that "eye-witness" testimony in court is unreliable. Stories passed down orally, then written, copied by scribes, then translated, then translated again, and edited and redacted are not a reliable history of anything.

John.usa, are you saying that
"atheist" (nonGod-believer), is really "a theist" (God-believer)?
---Eloy on 2/21/12

I am quite convinced that Atheist is actually a devout believer in Jesus simply posing as an atheist, in order to pose questions to us to get us to think through our beliefs more thoroughly. I have no doubt about that.
---John.usa on 2/20/12

atheist, recorded occurence is recorded history, and it cannot be changed, therefore when scripture documents that the daughters did what they did, so they did it, alcohol is a drug and I'm sure that after their father started drinking and missing his disobedient wife whom was now stone salt, that he became drunken even as history records. The citizens knew full well that what they were doing was not right, and people were suffering because of it, for the scriptures record that the cries from the cities reached up into the ears of God where he had to leave heaven and come down himself onto the scene and correct the corruption through his divine judgment.
---Eloy on 2/20/12

Mary, what do I really think? I think most of the theology around here is pure nuttiness. What I posted here before was a parody. There's a lot to parody around here. God bless you. I don't question your salvation at all. :)

I think we can all find better moral standards than the one provided by this bible story.
---atheist on 2/20/12

why? after all. it does not matter. man's morality is relative. currently, in Islamic nations they stone people to death, and in other countries, they cut away female genitalia.

as i said before, it is a story of redemption. but, nothing matters if there is nothing.
---aka on 2/20/12


Seriously, Lot was an adult. He got so drunk that he got his daughters both pregnant. And you blame them? That my friend, was a pretty messed up family. OTH, god could've not salted Lot's wife until she gave birth to a couple of boys for Lot...

AKA, "if there is no moral standard, then there is no reason to act or not act a certain way."

I think we can all find better moral standards than the one provided by this bible story.
---atheist on 2/20/12

So John.usa, what would you say about women who have never had children? Like me, I only had a miscarriage at 2 months many years ago and never got pregnant again. I think there's more to the verse than it sounds, what do you think?
---Mary on 2/20/12

atheist, it was not Lot's idea, but his daughter's to preserve the heritage of their father: "And the firstborn said to the younger, Our father old, and not a man in the earth to come in to us after the manner of all the earth: Come, let us make our father drink wine, and we will lie with him, that we may preserve the lineage of our father." Gn.20:31,32.

if there is no God, there is no moral standard.

man is not capable of creating one moral standard because what is right to you may not be right to me.

if there is no moral standard, then there is no reason to act or not act a certain way.
---aka on 2/20/12

So Lot's motive in getting so drunk that he didn't know he was getting his own daughters pregnant is that it was a soul saving exercise?

that I have not heard before....
---atheist on 2/20/12

atheist, no. You see, Lot knew full well that the men of the city that surrounded his house preferred men instead of women, so by him offering his female daughters he thought that they would not be interested and therefore they would leave him and his two daughters alone.
---Eloy on 2/19/12

...Lot's offering of his daughters for gang rape was just a little morally off? ---atheist on 2/19/12

let me save you some time. there is not any man (except one) in the bible or on earth that has not been guilty of at least a morally questionable deed to blatant moral atrocities.

the whole book is about redeeming a morally bankrupt world from itself through one man who was in no way morally questionable.

The Bible says women are saved through childbearing. So whether Lot's daughters got pregnant by rape or by their father, it didn't matter. They got saved.
---John.usa on 2/19/12


Lot did debauch his daughters, did he not?
---atheist on 2/19/12

First he turns Lot wife into a pillar of salt for turning her head, and then turns his head to the debauchery of Lot with his daughters.
---atheist on 2/18/12

it wasn't the debauchery of Lot, it was the debauchery of his daughters. as base as Lot could be, he turned his back to Gomorrah and obeyed.

hey poppa bear. i like the use of a pillar of salt. as you said, salt was valuable as currency because of its power of preservation. if it is made into a pillar, it is useless as currency. but, a pillar is useless if it is not strong. after the first rain, it would dissolve.

doubly useless.
---aka on 2/19/12

Poppa and Eloy,

Don't you think that Lot's offering of his daughters for gang rape was just a little morally off?
---atheist on 2/19/12

The off spring of Lot would have been better off as pillars of salt. Gods time line isnt based on instant gratification like ours. He dealt with that lineage of sin in His own time. Lots wife, who was initially spared the destruction of the citie still, felt that her love for the debauchery she was being delivered from was greater than a desire to honor Gods simple instruction to just not look back. Salt was also a main form of currency in that day, so perhaps God turned her into what she loved the most, money. The people of the city were so sick they wanted to rape angels, was that tolerable to you? Of course, your description is much more penetrating.
---Poppa_Bear on 2/19/12

Dear Blogger,

Thank you so much for your Godly correction. I did indeed get my miracles mixed up. I thank God for your as a student of the Word. May the Lord bless you (in Jesus Name).

atheist, The history of Lot demonstrates God's righteous Judgment of wicked sinners, which even lusted to rape his holy angels, whom he sent down to rescue Lot and his daughters from the vile cities that he was going to utterly destroy. He stayed focused and totally detroyed every soul in the cities.
Lot's wife disobeyed and turned back to the cities. The angels instructed her "Do not turn back, else you too will be consumed with the sins of the cities." If Lot's daughters did not inebriate their father in order to conceive his seed, for his wife was destroyed with the cities, then there would be no posterity left for Lot's heritage to continue in the earth, for there was not offspring left after him when God destroyed the cities.
---Eloy on 2/19/12

I think I have decided the story of Lot. It demonstrates god's vengefulness and his inability to stay focused.

First he turns Lot wife into a pillar of salt for turning her head, and then turns his head to the debauchery of Lot with his daughters.
---atheist on 2/18/12

One favorite is Joseph > Genesis chapters 37-50 > because he did not keep on only to get something for himself, but his faithfulness to God resulted in many people being blessed.

And the obedience of Abraham has gotten an all-blessing result > "'In your seed all the nations of the earth shall be blessed, because you have obeyed My voice.'" (Genesis 22:18) He obeyed God, so his obedience has gotten an all-loving result.

The_Believer, I think you may have the participants in your miracles confused. Bartimeus was the blind man healed by Christ on his way back from Jericho. See Matthew 20:29-34, Mark 10:46-52 & Luke 18:35-43

You may be thing at the healing of the invalid at the Pool of Bethesda John 5:2-3 5:5-9 [John 5:4 is a spurious addition to the text of John that does not appear in early Greek manuscripts of John see text of papyri P66 Chapter 5 is complete and not fragmented]

Act 19:14 And there were seven sons of one Sceva, a Jew, and chief of the priests, which did so.
Act 19:15 And the evil spirit answered and said, Jesus I know, and Paul I know, but who are ye?
Act 19:16 And the man in whom the evil spirit was leaped on them, and overcame them, and prevailed against them, so that they fled out of that house naked and wounded.

I have two scenes out of the bible that touch me deeply every time. When Joseph has to tare his self away from the dinner with his brothers and gos to another room and starts weeping because of all of the powerful emotions racing through him. The other seen is when Mary thinks Jesus is the gardener in John. When she finally recognizes him she says Rabboni! Something in that seen, her seeing the spotless Lamb of God, one who forgave her sinful past, trying to hug, or just touch Him out of joy, I seem to feel what she felt when I read it and I cant wait to just see Him and love Him.

Gordon, A-men. America used to be a blessed God-respecting land, but now it is vile and disgusting and full of death. They delight in persecuting Christians, God's childre. This land is accursed, and if I had the resources, I would truly run as fast as I could away from this land, as Lot did, and not look back. When God finally destroys this land for their lawlessness, for the Almighty is not mocked, and he takes the very best of care of his children, then the sinners will surely know that there has been a God among them. I'm telling you brother, just watch the hand of the Lord while he makes an utter end, the judgments in the past were a little flick of a finger compared to what God has in store for the ungodly.
---Eloy on 2/17/12

I like Judges 4. Infact I like all the stories in the book of Judges

But I really like Judges 4 and 5. Barak, Deborah, Heber, Jael and Sisera

I like the military strategy of Barak to take the high ground, use Heber as a double agent, Fight in the mud, defeat men with iron chariots, and I like how Jael killed Sisera

Judges 4:21 Then Jael Heber's wife took a nail of the tent, and took an hammer in her hand, and went softly unto him, and smote the nail into his temples, and fastened it into the ground: for he was fast asleep and weary. So he died.

The Story of Moses is my personal favourite. He helped lead the people of GOD to freedom from bondage to the promised land. Which is a foreshadowing of YAHUSHUA freeing people from the Bondage of Sin to the Heavenly Kingdom. I also love the Story of Samson. I relate to him in some ways. But, lately, I've been into the Story of the Prophet Yirmeyahu (Jeremiah). Warning Jerusalem of the coming of GOD's Judgment against her. JEREMIAH 51 reminds me of America's coming Judgment from GOD.

The Good Samaritan, Luke 10. It shows how our lives are to be spent heeding the needs of others because we love God and neighbor, not to ignore them from a safe distance. A great picture of "unearned affection" which should be a constant in our lives.
