‘Is the Bible Just Stories?’ (2015)

I post this every now and then for those of us who get frustrated, dealing with supposed Christians who don’t believe the Bible.

Is the Bible Just Stories?

Oh, they want the world to love them! They’re like Republican Congressmen who cast weak-kneed and timorous votes, always giving in to Democrats because they live in hope that the nooze media might someday drop a favorable remark in their direction. Got news for you, though: the fallen world will never love you. Even the most loosey-goosey, good-time, rock-and-roller sort of-Christian will never make it on NPR. And it isn’t worth trying to.

So, no, they’re not just stories.

If you want fake stories, try the nooze media.

  1. Anyone who does not believe the truth of Scripture is not worthy of the Lord. I seriously doubt that they ever made a real comittment to Him. He deserves so much better than this.

  2. There is controversy regarding the first eleven chapters of Genesis, as to whether they are literal or not. I take them as literal and feel that the Bible makes much more sense of taken literally, except in obvious cases where it is not, such as the thousand hills illustration and prophetic books such as Daniel and Revelation which are filled with symbolism and state as much.

    Over the last few years, I have undertaken a study of the Flood and found out that there are quite a number of Bible believing scientists that have tackled a scientific approach to understanding the Flood. The best theory I have read is that the earth had one continent and was surrounded by an ocean. When God caused the Flood, He caused undersea volcanos to erupt in what is now the mid-oceanic ridge when circles the globe. This raised the temperature of the seas and reduced the sunlight which hit the ground. Warm seas evaporating and cool surface temperatures on the land caused a cycle of precipitation. Many of these scientists believe that the ocean floor may have risen, cause if the seas to flood the land, as well. In God’s time, the eruptions decreased and the cycle was broken, but not until the entire surface of the earth had been erased.

    Also, during this time of volcanic activity, the land mass broke into tectonic plates which moved rapidly, forming the continents we have today. This rapid movement caused collisions and raised the mountains. Most likely, the pre-Flood world did not have mountains nearly as high as we have today.

    After the Flood, the climate was shocked and quite likely the Ice Age occurred sometime after the Flood, which at its greatest extent, undoubtedly lowered the level of the oceans, which means that even places such as Australia might have been much more easily accessible to be repopulated with animal life. This also may explain why God wanted people to spread out and fill the earth after the Flood. It’s entirely possible that intercontinental travel would have been much easier during the Ice Age. These radical climate changes may also explain the famine of Joseph’s day, when all the earth came to Egypt to obtain grain. Joseph’s odyssey undoubtedly saved the line of Abraham, but it may well have saved much of the human race from starvation.

    One other area where a literal interpretation of the Bible has helped me immensely is the restoration of Israel, in fulfillment of God’s promise to Abraham. The re-establishment of Israel as a nation, in one day, is a fulfillment of prophecy and much of the history since WW II has contained significant events regarding the re-establishment and preservation of Israel as a nation. The news of our day is pointing towards an alignment which comes right out of Ezekiel 38 & 39, regarding Gog of Magog.

    1. Violent convulsions of the earth–no one denies there was an Ice Age–would wipe out just about all the evidence that might pertain to any pre-Flood civilizations. We still can’t say how civilization got started in the first place.
