Is the bible the word of god, or is the bible the word of Babel?
“I speak my Southern English just as naturally as I please, I’m in the heart of Dixie, Dixie’s in the heart of me.” Hi, my name is Shean Smith and I’m the creator of Slung Dung Videos. In case you’re worried, I’m not going to finish that song; it’s best left for Alabama to sing.
In case you don’t know, I’m from the American Deep South
In case you don’t know, I’m from the American Deep South. I’m from South Alabama. I have a thick Southern United States accent. Many times, non-Southerners can’t understand what I say when I’m sayin’ it. At times, I’ve had to use hand signals and even draw what I’m sayin’. It feels as if I’m right there at the Tower of Babel.
Language has been dividing people ever since the “Babel incident.” Until Babel, people spoke one language. They used this one language to pull an Adam and Eve trick by trying to be like god. Deity confused their one language by creating thousands of languages from one language. People couldn’t understand each other, so they parted ways to create their own communities.
the bible IS the modern-day Babel
In my opinion (IMO), the bible IS the modern-day Babel. The documents of the bible were written in archaic languages to archaic audiences, for archaic circumstances. Later, men began using this archaic book as a guide to try being like god and then make everybody else obey ‘em.
These documents were translated into other languages of various cultures. Each translator had differing opinions about biblical meanings. The one religion called, “Christianity,” began splintering as a result and hasn’t stopped splitting since.
Christianity is one religion based on one book, that’s in over three thousand languages, with about a thousand of ‘em in English. That one book has thousands upon thousands of Christian denominations claiming special understandings of it.
IMO, that one book starts wars, divisions, infighting, church splits, etcetera, and gives the religious permission to torture people, kill them, and make slaves of them. This is PURE insanity.
IMO, the bible is the updated version of the Tower of Babel. The Tower of “Bible” causes worldwide confusion and separates humanity. The bible is THE most divisive book on earth. Why?
Men have turned a book into an idol they worship every day and force other people to do the same
IMO, men took a book—the bible, equated it with a living deity, and ordered common people to center their lives on it. Men have turned a book into an idol they worship every day and force other people to do the same. I find it ridiculous to live by a book, which can’t even save itself from a fire. I think that it’s inane and insane to use a book to control my life.
Let’s reason about the bible, a book: If I fall in a fire I’m not calling the bible to save me from the fire; I’m calling for a person to help me. If a god hears me and sends someone to get me out of the fire, then that’s still depending upon on a real person to pull my butt out of the fire.
it’s about as illogical as a screen door on a submarine
I believe that it’s about as illogical as a screen door on a submarine to depend on a book to save me, either physically or spiritually. Only Love, who’s a real entity, can save people.
Unlike the bible (in my thinking), Love is logical. Love unifies people, nullifies religion, and cures shame and guilt. Love replaced religion and religious texts because love won’t harm a fly, nor create divisions between people. The bible can’t make that claim.
Love is the one unifying language that everybody is able to speak
My definition of love is this: Love is “universal unbiased kindness towards all people regardless of who they are and what they’ve done.” Love is the one unifying language that everybody is able to speak. And THAT’S no bull.
So, until next time, when religion hits the fan … DUCK!
