Jeff and Dave: Trolling the trolls?

Introducing the article “Ten Questions Biblical Literalists Cannot Honestly Answer”

Question 1: Can you make a moral judgment against rape or slavery using only scripture?

  • You can absolutely find these sorts principals in the Bible.
  • God gave us His word in timeless form. It is not bound by time.
  • People will twist the scripture to their own ends.
  • See Matthew 22:36-40
  • Matthew 7:12 – The Golden Rule explained
  • Legal matters and fines – what’s the difference between then and now?

Question 2: Would you sacrifice your child if God asked you to?

  • The view of this changes when you understand WHO God is
  • God never allowed Abraham to follow through with the command to kill his son
  • The request for Abraham to kill his only son was a foreshadowing of the sacrifice of Jesus

Question 3: Is it acceptable to cherry pick the Bible and follow parts that you believe in?

      There is a difference between Old Covenant Law and New Covenant Obedience
    • Laws in the Old Testament were meant to show us how unrighteous we are
    • Look to the New Testament to understand what the principal is today.

    Question 4: How did animal X get from point Y to point Z after the great flood?

    • This question assumes a GLOBAL flood
    • We posit that this was a regional flood that covered the entire KNOWN world, not the entire Earth

    Question 5: How did carnivorous dinosaurs supposedly eat plants before the biblical fall of man, when their teeth and digestive systems were not equipped to process a vegetarian diet?

    • What??
