I didn't say anything in it was true. I said it was the most influential book ever written, so people who strive to be educated should have some idea what's in it, or, at the very least, should not celebrate being ignorant of what's in it.

Ah, the old Pascal's Wager. Truly a classic. Here are some reasons why we "gamble" thus:Which belief system is the "right" one? You can't pick all of them, and for any one you pick there are many others that say you're going to hell for that choice.I can't force myself to believe in something I don't.I don't think that, if there is a God, they would be fooled by me paying lip service with no actual faith backing it up just to hedge my bets against going to hell.Any god that would be fooled by that is either incredibly shallow and only cares about surface-level praise, or is pretty incompetent. Neither way really feels worthy of worship.

+the possibility of a god who rewards an honest disbelief and punishes dishonest belief forces you to not belief if you simply don't belief

+ the mather of principle that a god who forces you to belief with the punishment of eternal damnation if you don't and doesn't look at you actions or how you lived your life, is a dictatorial god who isn't worth worshipping

Level 75
Jul 10, 2019
Ironically @devantilya, the 'legitimate' translations you've read are literally vulgar. As in, translated into your language (aka a vernacular, instead of Latin etc). Etymologically the root of vulgar means common. A lot of Christians were burned, tortured, and killed by other Christians for translating the Christian bible into vulgar languages that common people could understand -- instead of allowing scriptural literacy and interpretation to be monopolised by the clergy and edu-ma-cated elites. One guy's bones were dug up and thrown into a river decades after he died because people were still upset. So yeah, no shame in vulgarity as far as I can see. Snobbery and prudishness strike me as odd vestments for a slave liberation religion.

"The Spirit of the Lord God is upon Me, because the LORD has anointed Me to preach good tidings to the poor; He has sent Me to heal the brokenhearted, to proclaim liberty to the captives, and the opening of the prison to those who are bound; to proclaim the acceptable year of the LORD, and the day of vengeance of our God; to comfort all who mourn, to console those who mourn in Zion, to give them beauty for ashes, the oil of joy for mourning, the garment of praise for the spirit of heaviness; that they may be called trees of righteousness, the planting of the LORD, that He may be glorified."

^ For Seventh Day Adventists, the Sabbath is on Saturday, not Sunday. Also depends on which day you believe the week begins; Sunday? or Monday? - So "Sabbath" seems the only logical choice.
+3
Level 83
Jun 12, 2019
for everybody that knows what they're talking about, the Sabbath is Saturday. Always has been. Though Sabbath now is sometimes used to refer to Sunday because at some point some Christians got confused and mixed up The Lord's Day with the Sabbath, even though it's super clear even from Christians' own stories that these are two distinct and different days, Jesus rising from the dead 3 days after the day before the Sabbath, in other words on Sunday.

My word choice above might be potentially confusing. Jesus rose "on the third day," not "three days later." So.. on the first day he was crucified (Friday), on the second day he was in the tomb (Saturday, the Sabbath, the reason why they had to cut him down and get him buried in a hurry so they wouldn't break the Sabbath), on the third day he rose (Sunday, the day after the Sabbath).

For example, 1 Peter 4 (KJV): Wherein they think it strange that ye run not with them to the same excess of riot, speaking evil of you: Who shall give account to him that is ready to judge the quick and the dead.

"Quick", in that context, is an archaic term for "alive", the phrase has understandably been used referring to gunfighters for different reasons.

Great quiz! One little quibble about the first clue though. Apostle wasn't a term synonymous with the 12 disciples, but a more broad term referring to teachers in the early church. The Apostle Paul, for example, was an apostle, though he was not one of the 12 disciples.
