What Christians Actually Believe  
These are some of the things in the Bible that Christians say is the "word of God" and is meant to be taken literally. Even new Secretary of State, Hillary Clinton said she believes the bible is the literal word of God. Also Alaska Governor Sarah Palin has also made remarks that lead her to believe in the literal word of the Bible.

So this is my reply to those who think the Bible is the exact word of God and is meant to be taken literally.


In Talking Snakes?
There was a talking snake in the Garden of Eden. - Genesis 3:1-4

Earth Is Only 6,000 Years Old?
That’s what the Bible dates it at and 7 days of creation is literally described as literal 24hr morning/night days. Plus god did not rest for "thousands of years" on the "7th day." Genesis 1:5,8,13,19,23,31
(Note: The world population in 4000 BCE, when the Bible says the Earth was created, was 20,000,000. In 5000 BCE it was15,000,000 & 10,000,000 in 6000 BCE.)

Gets Mad At A Fig Tree?
Jesus goes crazy and kills a fig tree because it did not have figs when Jesus was hungry. Now no one can eat from the tree! - Matthew 21:18-19


Jesus says you have to!
You may have heard from your Church that the laws in the Old Testament no longer apply. However that is just a made up excuse to make Christianity sound more appealing. The opposite is true according to the Bible. Jesus says you must follow the old laws even more than the Pharisees and the teachers of the law or "you will certainly not enter the kingdom of heaven." Jesus even says all the laws must be followed as long as Heaven & Earth still exist! - Matthew 5:17-20, Luke 16:17

What If Man Was Wrong About the Bible?
Who's word do we have that the "Word of God" is really the word of god? Man's. When you get right down to it putting faith in the Bible is just putting faith in the humans who decided which scriptures are sacred and worthy of being in the Bible. All known scriptures are known frauds and not the word of god. If there is a god out there he has never dictated a set of doctrine to us. If you want to be thankful to god then simply make the best of the lives he gave and take care of the world we were blessed with.

So the next time someone claims that they take the Bible literally word for word because they think they are being a better Christian, just remind them of these passages and then politely ask them to resume taking their medication because they are INSANE to believe this.
