This thread is winding down, AhmadJoyia. We are debating semantics in
someone else's thread.

I say let's put it away for now and pick it up again later. This subject comes
up every two weeks, so it shouldn't be too long

Trying to decipher the bible is like trying to decipher an M.Night Shaloman movie. They're both fictitious!

The bible today is essentially the same as is the time of the Prophet
Muhummad. Several translations have been made drawn from the original
Aramaic.

Hi Hazeshawn,

Have you ever studied the New Testament, particularly the Gospels and what Jesus was reported to have said?

I think there is a very profound and distinct guidance in what Jesus had to say and it doesn't rely on any miracles or divinity that may be claimed on the part of "Christian" zealots.

One may discard all the claims of divinity about Jesus and still find essentially the same guidance, unaltered from it's true meaning.

Would you like to discuss and decipher the reported sayings attributed to Jesus?

To clarify my position, I am not a member of any religion and I do prefer to believe in a creative principle and principal.

Considering your positive assertoin that "bible" is fictitious (Gospels too?)........you are now in a position to prove your claim.........can you do this?...........otherwise it is merely an opinion.

What criterion do you use to determine what is fictitious and what is not?..........then we may apply this criterion to other texts that are claimed to not be fictitious.

Please proceed.

Dear Bro DavidC, which Bible are you talking about when you say  "Several translations have been made drawn from the original
Aramaic". Secondly, do you have any evidence to assert this?

Here is a good starting page for bible translations in English.

Wikipedia


The Jerusalem Bible looks like it is the closest to the Bible
known and recommended by the Prophet Muhummad, but I am not a
scholar.
