Re: Have you ever read Bible?

Cover to cover ten times over No we did bits and pieces in secondary school never in primary school, maybe cause my secondary school was Protestant and primary Catholic. Don't Protestants live more by the bible than Catholics

Re: Have you ever read Bible?

The Jesus thread got closed because posters started making fun of Christianity, so I expect this one to be closed, too.

I disagree. I think it got closed because there were too many people defending Christianity.

Anyhow, in before the lock.

For Dante, it follows then, that the only way to get into Hell is to insist upon it. One must deliberately exclude himself from grace by hardening his heart against it. Hell is what the damned have actively and insistently wished for.

The man that hath no music in himself, nor is not moved with concord of sweet sounds is fit for treasons, stratagems and spoils. The motions of his spirit are dull as night and his affections dark as Erebus. Let no such man be trusted. Shakespeare

Re: Have you ever read Bible?

I went to Catholic school for 14 years...but no. I think we may have read it occasionally in religion class when I was around the age of 13 or 14. I remember I had to buy it for school anyway. I'm not sure if we had one at home. We almost assuredly did use it in class, at least from time to time but I don't remember a word of it.

Re: Have you ever read Bible?

It's the most important book ever, please read it!!! Read it on your own, though.

I'm a staunch athiest and still probably know the Bible better than a lot of so-called Christians.

Re: Have you ever read Bible?

Yes and I own a very nice copy of the Tanakh (basically just the Old Testament but the books in a different order and with Hebrew translation on the side) and also bits of the Qur'an but I don't believe in any Abrahamic religion.
