How is bible different from any generic fiction books?

If I wrote down a book about "god" and how people should live just for lulz, will the people 1000 years from now treat it as another holy book?
>>
No.

generally the Holy Spirit testifies to the validity of the Bible. also it has quite some publicity with mankind, and has been around for a very long time

The bible is so popular because God has preserved his word.
There are people who try and corrupt it though

Bible sold good because its a meme book

>>17253382
The bible is more of a historical text book not written like Harry Potter

Mathew mark Luke John etc are the names of the supposed people who wrote each gospel ( there are others which are not in the modern bible)

Op your question needs revising

It's written as an account of fact and like any historical text would need its text validated etc
>>
>>17253382
The judaic bible was written in a time when fiction was indistinguishable from mythology. It caught on as a social structure that emphasizes obedience to paternal influence and forbade the things that'd cause damage to their society in large amounts (trading/breeding outside tribe, homosexuality etc) and was then driven into the next generation by parents. 2 thousands years on and it's had to twist and morph to stay 'relevant' to a new world. So essentially is the scientology of the old world.
>>
>>17253382
I rate it as high as the myths of Plato, which is very high.

This kind of book has to follow some guidelines to be 'holy':
>generic rules and obligations
>historical accounts of a people
>self-assertion of holiness that is without error
>altering the book will cause a curse to the sinner who attempts to change it
>follow a holy entity's personality, acts and relation to humanity -- a god(s), incarnation, etc

Have at it, OP
>>
>>17253382
Because its fiction disguised as fact. People understand the simplicity of an imaginary man who desires them to do good, because just generally doing what's right without some kind of reward is pointless.

Its the reason why the abrahamic religions persisted so strongly. They made the promise of eternal paradise in exchange for being good and built their whole belief around it. Adding an extreme punishment for being bad.

Most other mythologies failed because going to the good place was much harder and most everyone who died went to the same boring shit afterlife. In Christianity all you have to do is believe in Jesus and boom all sins are forgiven.

>>17253707
If you were an adherent of a more typical Mystery religion you had no particular reason to spread the word about your faith because it was a bit like a private club with truths that weren't for the average population. Additionally you had no particular reason to fight against other religions because there were many gods and so it was ok if somebody else did things differently.

Christianity also won out because its far more virulent and exclusionary. There was one god, and he had explicit rules about just about everything and anyone who didn't hold the exact correct beliefs was a heretic. Christianity first destroyed the more liberal philosophical faiths that had taken over the Roman empire and then set out on centuries of in fighting over whether their god was of one substance, or if Jesus had only appeared to suffer.

>If you look in your heart you will know the truth

The reason the Bible stuck around is because during the time it was written, people were much more superstitious and ignorant.
>>
>>17253431
More accurate to say that it was compiled rather than written. Most of the books have been cobbled together from earlier sources rather than written by a single author at one time.

Even in the New Testament its clear that there were source books that we no longer have. Though one of the sources would have looked very similar to the Gospel of Thomas, generic sayings of Jesus or brief descriptions of actions he took without any larger narrative structure.

Well to be sure it's not nearly as well written or consistent. Multiple authors, giant time jumps, wildly varying writing styles and thematic material. It's not even an especially coherent collection or anthology.

So from a purely "prose" quality standard, terribly written. Of course, that wasn't the intention, so it gets a pass, but it definitely stands out as a difference!
>>
>>17254200
It's used in many secular universities as a non primary historical record you fucking dunce.

If were older than 15 you would understand that one can be euphoric and still the bible as a general historical record and/or collection of literature/myths that can give you historical/archeological/anthropological insight into the time...idiot.
>>
People often misjudge the bible and what it states it definitely is a holy book and to believe in Jesus Christ is a gateway into tapping into a true account of good and righteousness that you must possess in order to be a kind and successful human being. I don't think desecration of a good tool is necessarily correct when the less fortunate misinterpret meaning and the by product of that balloons into violence and stupidity. I'd just keep your mouth shut about all that and don't mess with people.

I never never in my entire fucking history seen a "secular" or in fact ANY non-religious university history course use the Bible for any form of reference excepting only direct relationship to Christianity/Judaism/general anthropological theology.

It is either way a beutifull way and christianity is one of the best paths there are, but sadly the teachings on christ have been changed a lot by the catholic church, but protestants seem to get it.

The point is, the bible gets used for secular research purposes all the time. You don't have to be christian to use the bible as a reference of research tool.

Yes , look at Scientology. Or the movie The Matrix. Or Star Wars.

The bible is more evil than the necronomicon. It is responsible for destroying many lives and ruining many lives. It even says that destroying lives is one of its main goals. Luke 12:53 Mathew 10:35

Nothing dumb about being right, my friend. The Bible is not commonly used, outside of religious universities, as a source for historic record except in courses or departments specifically focused on theology. In short, if religion's not the focus of the study, you're not going to find the Bible there.

>>double major in philosophy and art history working on a masters in museum administration all from accredited public uni is bullshit
Of course, of course, which is why you picked....the Odyssey as your counter example.

Seriously, was that, like, the only classical secular work you could remember from high school? Why not reference Thucydides or Herodotus? You know, people with works relevant to the topic?

No, no, by all means you enjoy your *ahem* degrees and all that Bible learning you got in your non-religious based history courses. I wouldn't dream of trying to upstage you in a degree pissing contest!

You decided the concept behind your interpretation of Satan. Satan would only be a word if you did not choose a meaning for it.

we are way past the bible and god, so when you catch up, call me.

Well, I was looking toward something similarly old and legendary instead of something like Bataille or Merleau-Ponty, but like I said, I feel like I'm being baited here, so I'll let you cats keep doing your thing.

Satan's the fashionable one.

Nope not confused at all.

Im not sure what school you speak of from this perspective possibly. But I do not mean to offend. You make it seem that you come from a prestgious school. I cannot confirm or deny this. I usually speak to my advisors first before doing certain things just to be safe.

Thucydides' History of the Peloponnesian War is a closer contemporary to the Bible as we know it than Homer's works, but whatever, you just go and let us do our "thang."

Possibly, but more than likely senator limpdick is just another basement dwelling faggot with a Wikipedia deep knowledge of basic high school history.

Way to give the benefit of the doubt though satan.

This is why I prefer a certain class of people and I tend to seperate a certain class of people in to seperate parts due to safety concerns.

And again I say this literally in the most non threatening non violent manner.

Oh, sorry, it's a meme from Walking Dead.

I was going to just post the image but then I realized it had a typo and it JUST MADE ME SO MAD.

But here it is anyway.

The Bible is more repetitive and explicitly tries to embed ideas using trite association and rhetorical implication. Notice how Jesus never gives a straight answer. He talks like a man possessed. If you've ever read the Bible, he literally sounds like a raving lunatic.
>>
>>17254606
Your implications are duly noted but not neccesary.

Christ was simply under pressure due to the malice of those he loved or those he felt he should help but wouldnt listen.
>>
>>17254606
He uses examples to explain things... A common theme among spiritual teachers.

Buddha once gave a silent sermon, he simply looked at a flower for a long period of time.
>>
>>17254627
Why is this the case?

Is this due to the fact that the simplest answer is possibly the correct or most correct answer?
>>
>>17254189
I'm glad I'm not the only one that's noticed it.

>>17254636
It also leaves room for personal interpretation. In case you find one possible interpretation to be not to your liking.

You should be alot more professional towards me.

The bible is word of god, not some childish fairytale. Through the whole old testament is spoken about the coming / birth of Christ. And it happened, and so went the world into a new covenant through Christ, who died, and rose to defeat the sins of man.
A lot of future predictions the Bible made actually happened in this generation. There is no denying it and I hope sincerely that all of those who do not believe it will have their eyes opened and will open their hearts to the only Savior and God; Jesus Christ.

Fiction books usually have continuations. Book "bible" was finished >2000 years ago.

No. Hopefully by then an imaginary friend won't be necessary for people to function.
However whatever it teaches can still be valid

How is it different from being a sheep?
>>
>>17253382
It really isn't. It becomes more and more generic when you compare it to other holy texts from the same region. Whole books like Ecclesiastes are copied from Egyptian texts.
>>
>>17253382
Research the OT it brings you to very interesting places around that area.

NT is a lot different, Christ's story and Paul's epistles are different segments, for we have the story of the Saviour (bringing man back to God) and Paul, who used to persecute Christians in those days who's conversion and testimony. It is to get us to believe in Christ and begin to seek out the Truth for ourselves.
