Q tips?

I think it was Drudge who posted a link about an article in the men’s magazine Gentlemen’s Quarterly regarding literary opinion, of which, no surprise here, the Bible made their short list on works not worthy of reading.

Guess what? I did not read their article. I do not care what their editors or writers say about scripture. From a magazine which suggests what color tie to wear or what shoes to put on? Really? Like they have half an ounce of credibility when it comes to the value of God’s word?  Even atheists are not this stupid.

Pornography quarterly, I’m sorry, I meant to say Cosmopolitan quarterly, oops, got that wrong, meant to say Gentlemen’s quarterly, are true rags in the best sense of the word. Appeal to the base of the lowest form of intellect, hiding under expensive perfume, cologne, Rolex’s that can’t guarantee a second more to your life, but wait, did you notice how I snuck in ‘lowest form of intellect’ when speaking of the rich and the famous?

We assume ‘very smart’ when speaking of the elite or jet set, because they have figured out how to live life being shrewd or independent of anyone or anything. Send off one of these guys, tell him to fetch a left-handed hammer, and he will be lost for a month. As I said, not too smart.

But ‘smart’ is subject to interpretation of course, as many a millionaire couldn’t grow a tomato or know where the gas cap is in their limo. So no, it’s no surprise that scripture made the list of ‘forbidden books,’ or books that are so unworthy of time, judged so by fashion gurus and the truly elite, and agreed upon by so many of their disciples. Ha!

News flash folks. God’s word loses no more lustre than does the sun lose light or heat because of people who hate summer time. Put the bible on a scale with Gentlemen’s quarterly, and it’s safe to say that the magazine full of advertisements and Ken dolls could not compare to as much as one verse of scripture. It’s not that GQ is that bad, but that God’s word is that good.

Truth has no competitors. Whether it be Woman’s Day, Boys Life, Reader’s Digest, Prevention, Mother Earth News, Atheist’s Are Us, Christianity Today, Golf Digest, Harley USA, or the zillions of monthly’s, none, None, NONE can compete with God’s word. So it is no surprise that the board of a men’s mag would opine that God’s word is irrelevant.  Yeah like they would be interested in hearing what God says of their hearts and conscience!

If so-called learned rabbis can half heartedly ‘find fault’ with scripture, if self-made ‘archaeologists’ can say there was no Red sea or that Joshua never lived; if pseudo scholars ‘teach’ that Christ did not reeeely  rise from the dead, then is any one surprised that the GQ people find God’s word tasteless? No one around here anyway. But it does prove once more:

Let God be true, and every man a liar.

    People have been trying to minimize the bible for decades. People who do not wish to accept the Bible or it’s primary author (God) or God’s Son, Jesus will, of course, make it out to be some trivial work of fiction. They deny the absolute magnitude of its preservation, its true lack of contradictions, and the forcefulness of its demand for us to seek the eternity placed in our hearts by our Creator. God’s Word will not return to Him void, no matter what GQ or anyone else thinks…

          When I used the term elite I was , of course, referring to those who ran the church and decided which books were to be included in the Canon. And of course after the Protestants decided to make their own bible there were a few books that were omitted, were there not?

          The forgeries or pseudoepigrapha if you refer, that I refer to are of course those epistles not penned by Paul but fobbed off as written by him.
          There are a multitude of other discrepancies – marginal glosses for one, and of course the long ending to Mark, But the rank Pauline forgeries should be enough for any honest Christian to question all claims of innerancy.

          Please don’t whine about cut and paste ….

          Written by Bart Ehrman, a former evangelical Christian and now agnostic professor of religious studies at the University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill, the book claims to unveil “one of the most unsettling ironies of the early Christian tradition”: the use of deception to promote the truth.

          “The Bible not only contains untruths of accidental mistakes. It also contains what almost anyone today would call lies,” Ehrman writes in “Forged: Writing in the Name of God – Why the Bible’s Authors Are Not Who We Think They Are.”

          According to the biblical scholar, at least 11 of the 27 New Testament books are forgeries, /strong>while only seven of the 13 epistles attributed to Paul were probably written by him.

          “Virtually all scholars agree that seven of the Pauline letters are authentic: Romans, 1 and 2 Corinthians, Galatians, Philippians, 1 Thessalonians and Philemon,” says Ehrman.

          Individuals claiming to be Paul wrote 1 and 2 Timothy, Titus, 2 Thessalonians, Ephesians and Colossians, he adds.

          This is your last comment on this thread thank you. But before you go, and so that others shall see how tolerant I have been, fair, and extremely patient, listen carefully.

          Your hero (Erhman) serves your purpose, yet you steer clear of other’s who say he has no more credibility than a monkey juggling grapefruits. He is a fraud, an imposter, and as the good book sez, a ‘worker of iniquity.’ Not my words.

          I. do. not. care. what he says. He is merely one more voice of idiotic pseudo scholars who pretends to have more knowledge than God Himself, or Paul, and as far as I am concerned, the Bible itself is a closed book to him. He is truly clueless. But it’s wonderful of you to cite him, and even other Christians, who align with you as far as it helps your atheism, but you despise others who actually believe the testimony of scripture.

          For instance, a talking parrot, oops, I meant to say donkey. You so love it when you meet a Christian who says that is impossible, yet you have no problem with them being ‘Christians.’ You are a walking contradiction, and all who visit this blog, know full well, that I have cleaned your infidel clock at every single opportunity. Why? Because I have scripture, God, and truth on my side.

          Go ahead and worship Erhman, and I’ll continue to point out: ‘let God be true, and every man a liar.’ Erhman is what I would call a wolf in sheep’s clothing, and he has zero credibility. Of course he faults scripture as it exposes his charlatan ways perfectly. Maybe he (and you) need to re-read the book of Jude.

          When speaking of believers studies, Edersheim states:

          ‘Accordingly they have no reason to dread the results either of scientific investigation, or of searching inquiry into “those things which are most surely believed among us.” For, the more the Bible is studied, the deeper will be our conviction that “the foundation of God standeth sure.

          It is to help, so far as we can, the reader of Holy Scripture – not to supersede his own reading of it – that the series, of which this is the first volume, has been undertaken. In writing it I have primarily had in view those who teach and those who learn, whether in the school or in the family. But my scope has also been wider. I have wished to furnish what may be useful for reading in the family, – what indeed may, in some measure, serve the place of a popular exposition of the sacred history. More than this, I hope it may likewise prove a book to put in the hands of young men, – not only to show them what the Bible really teaches, but to defend them against the insidious attacks arising from misrepresentation and misunderstanding of the sacred text.”

But I’m sure all my friends around here would agree that I have been extremely tolerant of your antics, but unfortunately, I do not have the patience of Job. That said, isn’t there another house you can visit and try to ply your craft………..

          ‘But agreed, ‘the truth stands resolute.’ However, you have already folded, for apart from God there is no truth. You can’t count to three and explain it without Him.

          And He already gave you this light that you may know the truth. Your choice.

God’s word is good like that, because God is good.

          ‘Though I might also have confidence in the flesh. If any other man thinketh that he hath whereof he might trust in the flesh, I more:
          Circumcised the eighth day, of the stock of Israel, of the tribe of Benjamin, an Hebrew of the Hebrews; as touching the law, a Pharisee;
          Concerning zeal, persecuting the church; touching the righteousness which is in the law, blameless.

          But what things were gain to me, those I counted loss for Christ.
          Yea doubtless, and I count all things but loss for the excellency of the knowledge of Christ Jesus my Lord: for whom I have suffered the loss of all things, and do count them but dung, that I may win Christ,

          And be found in him, not having mine own righteousness, which is of the law, but that which is through the faith of Christ, the righteousness which is of God by faith:
          That I may know him, and the power of his resurrection, and the fellowship of his sufferings, being made conformable unto his death.’
