Enemies Within and Without.

I believe without reservation that the Old and New Testament as written in the original Greek and Hebrew is the inspired and infallable Word of God and contains absolute statements and sometimes vague guidelines to all questions of faith and morality. I believe that this is a core belief of true Christians and helps define a true Christian.

Some of our "Christian" brothers seem to disagree.

COLUMBUS, OHIO (6/15/06)-The 75th General Convention of the Episcopal Church today passed a resolution essentially condemning the Bible as an "anti-Jewish" document. Not only does the resolution aim to address perceptions of anti-Jewish prejudice in the Bible and Episcopal liturgy, but it suggests that such prejudice is actually "expressed in...Christian Scriptures and liturgical texts."

There may be things within the liturgies, being human in their origin, which are wrong and need to go, but to condemn the Bible is something else entirely. It is of Divine origin. A church convention condemning the Bible makes as much as sense as if the Supreme Court were to declare the Constitution unconstitutional.

With Islamic and Secular Fundamentalists attacking us from the outside and apostates attacking from within we are truly under attack. (However, we are not Muslims so we won't kill the apostates; we will simply refuse to acknowledge them as brothers or sisters.)

It is always good to have faith. Faith is part of a mans moral compass. As to the devine nature of the Bible, I would remind you that the muslims think the same thing about the koran.

Sounds like they have the LIEberal disease to ban everything instead of analyzing it, revising it, and making it better for modern perceptions.

My Mother would have a fit! She had her quirks, but she believed every word of the Holy Bible was the devine word of God, and she read it cover to cover several times. Geeze, I need to get back to reading it.

So, have they read the Bible? I have never seen anything in it that would be "anti-Jewish."

tom c There are 3 possibilities.
1) We are both wrong
2) Muslims right, Christians wrong
3) Christians right, Muslims wrong

(The two books are so different that they can't both be true unless God is insane -- and the order of the universe suggests He isn't)

I'll take number 3.

I'll take number 3 too!

As an Episcopalian I am furious about this. It makes me want to puke! I really don't know what to do because I love my little church and the people in it (most of them anyway).

It's something I am going to have to sort out and deal with. :(
