    Yes. I forget how it was explained, something like it was a tsunami or something, and water receded they crossed, got far enough away, then the tsunami hit taking out all the kings horses and all the kings men.

    I know 🤬 has power, but there is an explanation to these things. Like the plagues and all, of course you know.

    Then why are you a christian if you realize most of these things couldnt be explained then so they were just thought of having to be the work of 🤬 ? Why not just say well religion is BS and used to explain the things they couldnt and keep your belief in 🤬 still? Not tryin to be a 🤬 just wonderin why believe a book that is clearly full of false info.

    I believe through 🤬 did this happen, it wasn't a "coincidence" that a tsunami took place. It was created by 🤬 for that to happen. I believe 🤬 sent down these plagues as well but it did happen in a scientific way.

    I won't change being a Christian, I'm just a different type. I'm not your bible bashing, swear by the bible guy. I refuse to be like that because in that sense, it isn't a lie, it's a misinterpretation. Which leads to it being the wrong way to follow 🤬 .

    I do although know he is a powerful 🤬 . I know that if he wanted to, he could do it "magically" so to speak. Like, I believe the Big Bang Theory but that 🤬 created this Big Bang and went from there. Because 🤬 created Adam from dirt, Eve from one of Adams ribs. So he had to have had some material to use to create our solar system, in which is how he created this BB.

    I dunno, my interpretation is different is all. There has to be a creator for all of this, it isn't just we came from rock, to fish, to land animal, to this to that. No way, too complex.

    A Tsunami doesn't part water.

    Because learning the literal is easier than understanding the symbolism, metaphors and allegories.

    I know, like I said, I forget the exact "scientific" explanation but it was something to that effect. Before a tsunami hits does it not recede?

    1. "19We have also a more sure word of prophecy; whereunto ye do well that ye take heed, as unto a light that shineth in a dark place, until the day dawn, and the day star arise in your hearts: 20Knowing this first, that no prophecy of the scripture is of any private interpretation. 21For the prophecy came not in old time by the will of man: but holy men of 🤬 spake as they were moved by the Holy Ghost." 2 Peter 1:19-21


    2. "All scripture is given by inspiration of 🤬 , and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness:" 2 Timothy 3:16

    Never always ends, and "always" sometimes ends, so never sometimes happen, because sometimes "sometimes" happen.

    Live and learn they say.

    Those are two words I do my best to avoid saying, never and always.

    Just like what we don't want usually happens, and what we want to happen rarely does.

    The whole bible is not literal, a lot of it is symbolism, because how can fleshly humans understand a spiritual diety. He has to personify himself and put things in ways that we can understand and alot of the 'stories' have greater meanings it doesnt matter if they are literal or not alot people just like to be opposers and the bible says men will do that so that doesnt surprise me either.& another thing people fail to realize is that the bible was not written in English so through the translation process who's to say what got taken out of context or mistranslated, I know my muslim friend says that you can not convert to Islam unless you know Arabic to read the Quran in its original language she says it reads slightly different in english. It is a goal of mine to learn Hebrew and Arabic to read the Hebrew scriptures and the quran, I might have 2 just accept the english version of the greek scriptures lol. I just think its funny how people try to use scientific theories to eliminate 🤬 when imo it only proves how genius he really is. Science just explains Gods method of creation. I really hope people didnt think he just farted and everything came to be. People may not believe in the personification of 🤬 and to each is own but you'd be foolish to deny intelligent design.

    ...when you two would be bickering about religion. I got a nice chuckle out of it.

    Superficial, I rarely regret saying "never" and "always," because I'm usually not being serious when I say them.
