    Bible Thread

    Ok so I have a Bible. (got it in Prison actually) and it's King James Version

    Wondering if we can get a thread going in here. You don't have to be religious, I wouldn't say I am, but I do believe in God, and I do think this is a super valuable book. The last books I read were 48 laws of Power and Art of Seduction both by Robert Greene and they were amazing

    So I'm gonna start reading 10-15minutes a day again, bc to be quite honest, this lockdown is making me lose my mind. And I need to get some structure back in my life.

    So anyways,we have some solid experts on this forum. From lockpicking, to meds, to computer hacking to mechanics, etc, etc.

    You get what I am saying

    Is there anyone here who is an expert in say theology, or hermeneutics or even Philosophy?

    I'd like to bounce some questions off you guys, re: Interpretation
    . I have read the Bible in the past and I don't understand much of it.

    If anyone else is in on this venture, feel free to join me. It is one of the greatest books I have read, but it has been a decade since I read it.

    So I am in need of assistance!

    Thanks!

    Self made monster I believe. I thought he had mentioned he studied all 3 major monotheistic ideologies. Also I read it here and there but am no Christian Bible expert. Religion has fascinated me for a long time. My mom had a rough childhood and her troubles spilled over into her adulthood. She bounced back and forth between different Christian sects and Jehovah witnessí ... she was always looking for reason in her life I guess. But I would say that I am a Christian, not a very good one, but God makes sense to me....it gives me hope. And there are a lot of good people in the Christian circle. A lot of bad people too but the message of Christ is an incredible story.

    I try to put myself back in that timeframe, itís crazy really.

    life is just too intricate and the human body is just too dynamic for this to just happen through evolution. From nothingness to a giant gas explosion to bacterium to humans, I donít buy it.

    Human beings were a well thought out creation.

    New King James version is probably going to be the most accurate and easiest to understand. NIV and some of the others are known for mutilating some passages (and flat out adding/subtracting other things). Here's a link to a place that will email you a daily reading plan that gets you through the bible in one year (just make sure to pick the NKJV):
    https://www.bibleinayear.org/

    Easiest/best search feature, imo:
    https://www.biblegateway.com/

    I'm not highly religious either but like you I do believe there is probably a god and I sense that if we consistently choose to be evil and a POS in life that we will suffer consequences after life.
    A lot of religions and their 'books' are fine as long as they don't condone terrorism/killing other people.
    I do not believe everything in the bible but the stories are interesting and there is nothing wrong with the basic morals it points out. Basically it is a guide to being a decent human being.

    This is great advice.... I fully agree with multi on this. I did back in the day have a NKJV but I also did have NIV. If I got stuck with passages from the NKJV I would read the NIV to see if I understood it better then went back to NKJV.

    Wes I think alot of the Bros here are more than willing to help with any questions you might have. There probably will be several different interpretations shared I'm guessing as well.

    Thereís an app that has all translations you can cross reference for further understanding. Anyone interested can check android or Apple apps and find something close, the exact name escapes me. KJV is the original translation from Greek first translated from Hebrew I believe. Itís old English but as close to original as one can get.

    Ok let me ask my first question

    Revelations speaks about the Tribulation and the Rapture. It also speaks about many "horsemen"

    I see it mention the Eagle, which I get is the USA. The Bear, which I get is Russia.

    But what does it all mean. I can't make sense of it. Which comes first? When does it occur?

    Thatís the million dollar question bro. Once the prophecies are fulfilled then the beginning of the end shall commence. Some, but not all, have been done.

    i have an NIV Bible in my safe, right next to my gear. My gearZ are holy, and I heard it adds to the potency. Jesus used to pin and lift too. Least thatís what I tell myself.

    id love to sit through a sermon with a jacked up preacher. Flexing for Jesus!

    Iím not super religious and I donít follow it all that closely. But I do have a bible bed side. It belonged to my wifeís father who passed at an early age. Iíll follow along here. Iíve been meaning to pick that bible up and give it a chance. Maybe this thread will encourage me to do just that.

    Wes, get out of Revelations. Start with John and move to Romans (written by Paul).

    The tribulation and end times are best understood after a solid foundation in the trinity. It takes serious time to understand. Backstory is critical.

    But Iíll give you a glimpse of the locust. Theyíre Apache helicopters IMO. If prophecy is fulfilled, weíre pretty close.

    Coming out swinging I see lol... In Christianity nobody can agree with how it's going to go down. Now I very well could be wrong completely.

    https://www.neverthirsty.org/bible-q...lation-period/

    I agree with this view on how everything will go down. Now first important fact is God doesn't act accordingly to our view of time... 7 years is not 7 actual years according to God's timetable. It could be 700 actual years.
