BIBLE: For, for, for — and against

If anyone adds that? Either to words of the Bible,
The worm adds the sores on earth
and torment in hell in the next world;
If any man shall take away? Either the words of the Bible,
The one God takes life on earth
and even he deserved life in paradise.

(See Revelation 22:18, 19;
Deuteronomy 4:2, 12:32
Proverbs 30:6;
Jeremiah 36;

1. No mistakes in the Bible! There is not a single!

The Bible is composed of more than fifty individual books. Each biblical book has its own name, in the more or less complete form contained content is its author. Most books of the Bible are called by the authors of these books, such as "Five Books of Moses" (the five books that were written, supposedly, Moses), "Wisdom," "Wisdom of Jesus the Son of Sirach," "Book of the Prophet Isaiah, Jeremiah, …, … Daniel Malachi … "," The Gospel of Matthew, … Luke, John … "" Epistle of Peter, the apostle … Judas, the apostle Paul … "and so on. Only a few of these books are referred to by their content: "Preacher" (Church preacher), "Song of Songs", "The Acts of the Apostles" and others.

Based on the books and the indirect or stored in the tradition of references, theologians had 40 books of the Bible writers who lived in different times (from 1300 BC to 2? Century BC) and belonged to different sectors of society (King David and Solomon the shepherd Moses and Habakkuk elected prophets Isaiah and Jeremiah, the priest Ezra, Nehemiah, cupbearer, leaders, Joshua and Samuel, the tax collector Matthew, Rabbi Saul? Paul Simon the fisherman? Peter, royal scribes, sages and commoners). [1]

But despite the diversity of authors and different times of writing books of the Bible, all of them, according to believers and theologians, are not the product of human hands, but the immediate creation of the Lord God, and their origin is not human, but divine. This divinity is seen in the fact that in spite of the time difference of origin and raznoavtorstvo books, the Bible represents a thoroughly unified and integral work of one author.

The Bible — a unique book. Its content it covers the whole world from the beginning (from the story in the first chapters of Genesis about the event, the creation of the world) and to the end (to the message in Revelation about the end of the picture of the created world). Please note that the first words of the Bible heard "In the beginning" (Bereshit), and the last — "Amen!"

According to the doctrine of Christian theology, God created the world and its creation of an adequate written about the Bible. Hence the "sophisticated" theologians say that God created two books: the Bible and the world, and if between the phenomena of the created world and the messages a person sees what the Bible? The contradictions, it means that the person is wrong or read the book first, or second, or both together!

Man, of course, make mistakes. «ERRARE HUMANUM EST», — said the wise Romans. And if the Bible written by men, whether they are three wise men and three saints! in their work by all means, naturally, stole a voluntary or involuntary mistakes. But the Bible is the work of God himself, who is holy, and in him is no sin, He does not make mistakes.

The author of the biblical text is God himself. And the proof of this is in the Bible itself, in which only part of the Old Testament in its 2935 again says, "Says the Lord," or highlights that we read, "The Word of God." Here are just a few suggestions of this kind:

"Moses told all the words of the Lord" (Exodus 4:28)

And the Lord said to Moses, "Write down these words, for these words I have made a covenant (union — ED) with you and with Israel" (Exodus 34:27).

"The Spirit of the Lord spake by me, and his word was in my tongue" — the author writes the Second Book of Kings (23:2).

"The words of our God shall abide forever" (Isaiah 40:8).

"I will put my words in thy mouth" (Isaiah 51:16)

"And the word of the Lord to me:" … And before you were born I consecrated you as a prophet to the nations you … All that I command you, you say … "I am with thee to deliver thee, — said the Lord. — Then the LORD his hand and touched my mouth and the Lord said to me: — Behold, I have put my words in thy mouth "(Jeremiah 1:7? 9).

"And when the Lord spoke to me, Spirit entered into me and set me on my feet. And I heard him that spake to me, "… and I tell them my words (no matter — ED), whether they listen or not" (Ezekiel 2:2,7).

"The Lord hath spoken good words, comforting" (Zechariah 1:13).

Hundreds of times such statements are found in the New Testament:

"All this took place to fulfill what the Lord by the prophet" (Matthew 1:22, 2:15).

"Truly I say to you — Jesus Christ said: — As long as there will be heaven and earth, not one shaped as letters or flyspeck Torah does not change" (Matthew 5:18).

"For David himself said by the Holy Spirit" (Mark 12:36).

"Lord proclaimed by the mouth of the former of his holy prophets" (Luke 1:70).

"Your word, O God — says Jesus Christ — is truth" (Ioann17 17).

"Jesus Christ the heaven must receive until the times of restitution of all that God speaks through the words of the prophets since the world began" (Acts 3:21).

"By the word of God the heavens and the earth standing" (2? I Peter 3:5, Hebrews 11:3).

"Do not corrupt the word of God" (2? Corinthians 2:17).

"Do not distort the word of God" (2? Corinthians 4:2)

Name Him (Christ — ED) — The Word of God "(Revelation 19:3, 6:9, 20:4).

Leading U.S. Baptist theologian David W. Cloud in the article "Life» (Way of Life) «Encyclopedia of the Bible and Christianity» (Encyclopedia of the Bible & Christianity, copyright 1999 by David W. Cloud) writes: "If the Bible is not the Word God, it is — the greatest deception in which they have ever had plunged the human race. " The same David W. Cloud writes, "The Bible — is not a collection of disconnected and controversial writings. This whole book is created by God to tell people the way to salvation … If the Bible contains myths, errors, incorrect references to the authorship of books, describes a nonexistent miracles, prophecy, it is not immune from lies and delusions. "

Save in respect of research? Atheistic criticism, some theologians are trying to use the same scientific methods of analysis of the Bible. They write that God inspired the authors of the Bible only their thoughts, and they recorded them in accordance with his temperament, knowledge and skills. Hence, describing the same event, the prophets and the apostles could say that? Skip, why? Then set out on? Own. In this part of theologians allow for errors in the text of the Bible through the fault of copyists or translators. But if this is allowed, then the natural question arises about the cleaning of the Bible from such errors, the correction of the Bible.

But the idea of the presence in contemporary texts of the Bible and the need for error correction Bible believers and theologians universally considered blasphemous. Contemporary theologian RK Sproul writes: "The recognition of the infallibility of the Bible includes the recognition of the absence of any error was the primary text of the biblical books» (RC Sproul, Explaining Inerrancy: A Commentary, Oakland, CA: International Council on Biblical Inerrancy , 1980, p. 25).

How exactly and specifically should understand the Bible as the word of God himself, modern theologians write in comments to the Apostle Paul to the Corinthians. We present the text in full:

"In the first letter to the Corinthians (2:9? 13) Paul writes:

9 But as it is written, Eye hath not seen, nor ear heard, neither have entered into the heart of man what God has prepared for those who love Him.

10 For to us God revealed [it] by his Spirit: for the Spirit searches all things, even the depths of God.

11 For what man knows the things of a man, save the spirit of man which is in him? And God no one knows except the Spirit of God.

12 Now we have received, not the spirit of this world, but the Spirit of God to understand the gifts bestowed on us by God,

13 that speak, not in words taught in human wisdom but taught by the Spirit, comparing spiritual things with spiritual.

(1, I Corinthians 2:9? 13)

These verses describe the method by which God reveals the truth to people. The Bible reveals to us the things that a person can not comprehend the way of his own mind or studies (verse 9). God by His Spirit chooses what he wants to say about himself, about salvation, about their plans and actions (v. 10 No. 12). In verse 13 we are told that the revelation extends to the choice of the words themselves used in revelation. God gives authors the books of the Bible, not only thought that they should? His record and convey to the readers. He also gives them exact words. Moreover, God gives prophets and apostles — the authors of biblical books — not just a list of words that are on your own can be used by the biblical text! In the text of the Bible, God acts and manifests itself from the beginning to the end of every word. Who? Then burlesque can bring divine inspiration to the level of a "mechanical dictates of divine inspiration." But we should not worry about what may be called derogatory words mechanisms of divine inspiration. We are not worried about how God put us extremely perfect and imperfect Bible through various personally prophets and apostles. This case and the care of the Lord God. The Bible — complete perfection, and this inspired Word of God. And we in this respect there is no difficulty, no doubt and no problems … As for possible errors in the Bible from? For copyists and translators, such errors are in principle impossible. If God has found it possible to discover their secret, true prophets and apostles, that he had more opportunities to prevent their words from distortion "(ibid.) In the development of theological reasoning the same David Cloud refers to the text of 1? First Epistle of Peter (1: 10 × 12), the Acts of the Apostles (3:18, 21, 4:25), the Psalms (11:6, 7).

In theological environment currently consists of the theory of "double inspiration» (Dual Inspiration) text books of the Bible. It is stated that God inspired the Bible is not only writing in Hebrew and Greek, but he inspired and protected from errors and Bible translators. In this regard, all translations of the Bible, which are generally accepted or approved by the local churches are exactly the same words of God, as the words that were written primarily in Hebrew and Greek. According to the author of this concept Rukman Peter (Peter Ruckman) theologians call it, the concept rukmanizmom.

2. What causes recognition by some theologians of some errors in the Bible

Trying to be accurate in the transmission of the theological thought of the infallibility of the Bible, we are a little tired of reading people far from fundamentalist theological slovoizliyany. At the same time, we recognize that in Judaism and Christianity among the believers and theologians have other estimates essentially biblical inerrancy. For example, Ualeys (Wallace) — modern Dallaskoy prominent professor of theology seminary in the United States, wrote: "If a man? Or try to compare the first three stories of the Gospels of Jesus Christ that is presented in the fourth — the Gospel of John, he is sure to come to the conclusion: we lie about Jesus or Matthew and Mark and Luke and John is lying, or else: the first three Evangelists tell us of one Jesus Christ, and John tells us about a very different Jesus Christ. " And this is not the theological interpretations of the Bible, in the spirit of modern scientific research and concessions atheism.

I have already said that the findings of eminent contemporary scholar of New Testament texts theologian Bruce M. Metzger (Bruce M. Metzger) close or coincide with scientifically? Atheistic conclusions, but they do not coincide with the conclusions set out in religious sermons, but in training courses future preachers of religion in religious schools. Sometimes one and the same divine believers and students of religious schools of the Bible says one thing, and in a speech to an academic audience — quite another. We will not follow the example of? Abroad. There these examples — is to burn. Take our, at present a rare example. In his course of lectures on apologetics theology professor of the Moscow Orthodox? Theological Institute father Deacon Andrei Kuraev surely protects the sanctity and infallibility of the Bible. So he tells the Orthodox Church and paid by, the position of professor of theology. But in a speech to the cultural, in his opinion, the public he can eat trample on the biblical book of Esther. (See his book, "How are anti-Semites.") And in the "winding" in the depths of Siberia, which has not yet reached a wave of religious revival, a professor of theology Kuraev with gusto tells of how Jesus understood the fine drunks, prostitutes and perverts (Goes Gospel account of how Christ helped deftly captured on a hot whore, inviting him who has no sin, cast the first stone at her. — John 8:1? 11). Finally, bravura counterpoint bibleynomu pietism, concluded that: "And you, what? thought that Christ — sterile impotent? "(Loud and prolonged applause.) A report on these statements newspaper "Orthodox Russia" contains the words, "the most terrible thing is that about. Andrew dares to utter blasphemous speech to the Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ. For example, he says verbatim: "What do you think, Christ — sterile impotent?"

3. Theologians and ordinary believers? Different understandings
inerrancy of the Bible

We have given so far extremes — from fundamentalism to zabubennogo blasphemous modernism — in theological approaches to the perception of the medium of the Bible. These extremes are interconnected and each partition oneself off mass of transitional stages, paths and fences. But all of this is, as a rule, within theology voiced mouths themselves theologians. Simple same, so is the practice of the faithful and brought up in the spirit of fundamentalism, and in simplicity of heart hold fundamentalist views of the Bible. The same fundamentalist views infected converts and inexperienced young believers.

Who monitors the discussions with atheists or believers theological propaganda in the Russian Internet, the Bible, and everywhere there is protected and promoted in its fundamentalist interpretation. But fundamentalism — is untenable. He violently thrives only in our unenlightened religious environment that wants to be surprised, and without looking, to believe that the Bible — the infallible Word of God, the Bible — a clever book that her and do not understand … But the Bible — the book is full of errors. And understand this is not difficult …

Time introduced to the degree of knowledge of the Bible by Jesus Christ.

4. Jesus Christ is unacceptable confusing Torah with Scripture and allows the existence of many gods

In one of the discussions with the Jews Jesus Christ called himself the equal of the Heavenly Father. Hearing that

"The Jews took up stones again to stone Him for blasphemy … and for
that thou, being a man, make yourself God. Jesus said to them: "Is it not written in the law (the Torah — EK):" I said you are gods'?
If he (the Father of heaven, God — EK) called them gods, unto whom the
word of God and Scripture can not be broken
Him, whom the Father consecrated and sent into the world, you say, "blasphemy" because I said, "I — the Son of God" (John 10:31? 36).
(Nobody anywhere from Gospel of Jesus Christ is not heard that he used to say: "I — the Son of God." Son of God, Jesus Christ called Satan (Matthew 4:3, Luke 4:3, 9), minor demons (Matthew 8: 29, Luke 8:28), John the Baptist (John 1:34), his followers (Matthew 14:33, Mark 3:11, Luke 14:41, 22:70, John 1:49, 11:27), prosecutors (Matthew 27:43). Christ in the Gospels only indirectly — "Guess they say, very" — hints of himself as the Son of God (John 9:35? 37, 11:4) … But let's not quibble Christ. Not will also reproached him for his chaotic torrent, we will not make a complaint to the logic of his dark reasoning. us in this situation, it should be understood that if a person is going to beat the stones, such a person is not to logic and to the precision of expression.)

In Jewish and Christian theology are clearly distinguished between the three sections of the book of the Old Testament: the Law (Torah), the Scriptures and the Prophets. The main book of the Old Testament (the Hebrew Bible, the Tanakh) is the Torah — Five Books of Moses. Scripture (Khetubim) include a history and poetry, and the Prophet (Nabiim) — works four "major" and 12 "minor" prophets. Scripture and the prophets are also considered scripture, but their authority is below the Torah, their content is understood and interpreted in light of the content of the Torah. But in the Torah, the law, do not have words that are quoted by Jesus Christ. These words are in the Book of Psalms (Psalm 81:6). This — in? First.

And in? Second … No! Let us not make preemptive conclusions. First, let's read the text of Psalm 81.

God was in the assembly of the gods,

Among the gods gave judgment:

"As long as you, the gods will be judged unfairly

And have a partiality wicked!!

Defend the poor and fatherless, the court,

Oppressed and needy is valid.

Save the poor and needy;

Wrest them from the hands of the wicked.

(Disadvantaged) do not know, do not understand;

Walk in darkness;

All the foundations of the earth varies.

I said, "You — the gods,

And the children of God — all of you!

But ye shall die like men,

And fall like one of the princes!

Psalm written in beautiful verse biblical Hebrew. From him, literally, smell intact naive beliefs of the ancient Jews in the existence of many gods. Among this sonmischa gods, according to the beliefs of the Jews of biblical times, God is the elder, — God. You can read about in the Bible. So, in a farewell and dying his song Moses reminds Jews dearest:

Give ear, O heavens, and I will speak,

And listen to the words of my mouth earth! ..

When the Most High gave the nations shall inherit

And the sons of Adam,

He set the bounds of the people according to the number of the children of Israel.

Jehovah God selected his people:

Jacob — lot of his inheritance.

Yahweh found his people in the wilderness,

In the howling wilderness;

Shielded him, cared for him,

Kept him as the apple of his eye.

Like an eagle swaddle her nest,

Worn over her young,

Spreads her wings,

Taketh them, beareth them on her —

So Jehovah alone did lead his people

And there was no strange god with him …

(Deuteronomy 32:1, 8 × 12)

Jews of biblical times were polytheists. They are, as is clear from the text of Psalm 81 and the farewell song of Moses, believed that once a senior God, the Almighty, to every people identified their god. Researchers dug that each god people stood by throwing dice. One of these gods, on behalf of Yahweh, dropped the "fate" (lots) to be a god of the people of Israel. God Yahweh had found his people in the wilderness (at Mount Sinai), he introduced himself and took care of him. God Yahweh, according to the beliefs of biblical Jews was stronger than the gods of other nations (1, Samuel 5:1? 8), was very jealous (Exodus 20:5, 34:14, Nahum 1:2), and strictly? Nastrogo prohibited Jews praying other gods. Jews, recognizing the existence of a national God, to recognize the existence of other gods worshiped by people and always last …

Psalm 81 says that God calls all the gods to show kindness to their people. Allah reminds them that they — the gods that they called the children of the Most High God. And if they do not perform their mission, then God threatens to punish their deaths …

And now we can say, "In? Second." In? Second Jesus Christ misrepresented the content of the text of Psalm 81. Psalm speaks of gods, each of whom is the son of God, but Christ takes it as though God does not speak here about the gods of other nations, and of the people of the Jews. But the Jews had such and did not mean to. Moreover, that Christ claims to be the only son of God, that does not match any of the text in his favorite Psalm, or the Old Testament teaching of the Bible or religious beliefs of the Jews.

Finally, in? Third, Christ is polytheist, polytheist, as it believes in the existence of many gods, which flatly does not recognize Christianity. True, Mormons, or as they call themselves, "Latter-day Saints," using the expression of the gospel of Jesus Christ and the texts quoted above Old Testament Bible teaches that there are many gods, taught that Mormons themselves in the future will also become gods. But all the Christian churches, religion and sects do not recognize Mormon even in the least Christian.

5. Violating their same commandments, Jesus Christ — the sinner

a. Surely Christ — in hell?

In his famous Sermon on the Mount Jesus outlined the essence of his new faith, and urged his faithful to follow it strictly. Among other Christian novelty there is:

You have heard that it was said (in the Old Testament — ED)
"Do not kill. Whosoever shall kill — to be tried. "
But I say unto you, that whosoever is angry with his brother will be liable to judgment
(This refers to the heavenly court — ED)
… And who will say (to his brother.): "Mad!" (Fool — ED), —
be hell-fire. (Matthew 5:22)

First of all, say that Christ casually refers to the Bible. There is no such commandment, or at least that the expression: "Do not kill. Whosoever shall kill — to be tried. " It has a separate commandment, "Thou shalt not kill '" (Exodus 20:13, Deuteronomy 5:17). There are separate instructions: "He who kills, hit a man so that he dies shall be put to death" (Exodus 21:12), "He who kills what? Any person, he shall be put to death" (Leviticus 24:17), but nowhere not that "quoted" Jesus Christ, "Who will kill — to be tried." But since Jesus Christ everywhere negligent in handling the Bible, in this case, do not draw attention to this.

In this case, the important thing is that all who call his neighbor a fool, Jesus Christ condemned to eternal stay in hell — hell fire. And if this is indeed the case, then all of our fellow citizens, believers and non-believers, non-drinkers and alcoholics, depraved and virgins, workers and drones, scientists and ignorant, racketeers and their victims … — all, all, who even once called a fool fool will be in hell! But there will be British, the Germans and the French, and multilingual brother Slavs … But with us there will be Jesus Christ himself, who addressed his fellow beings, left and right sent not only the words "mad", but so what? it worse. Here is his expression:

"At that time Jesus began to say unto the multitudes and to his disciples, and blind! What is greater, the gold or the temple that sanctifies the gold "(Matthew 23:1, 17). His listeners to Christ miscall "brood of vipers" (Matthew 12:34; 23:33, Luke 3:7), "hypocrites" (Matthew 7:5, 15:7, 22:18, 23:13? 29; Mark 7 6, Luke 11:44, 13:15), "wicked" (Matthew 12:39, 16:4, Luke 11:29) "faithless and perverse generation" (Matthew 17:17, Mark 9:13, Luke 9:41), "graves" (Luke 11:44). St. Peter boring for Christ says, "Get behind me, Satan" (Matthew 16:23, Mark 8:33) …

So that if all of us and ever will be in the words of Christ, and Christ himself will get the same end! In fact, "What shall be Jesus Christ himself for the word" Crazy "and the like? Hell-fire, or what? Then decently? "

b. Why is Jesus Christ himself is not framed his left cheek when he was beaten on the right?

Reforming the laws of the Old Testament, presenting the essence of the New Testament, Jesus Christ commands:

You have heard that it was said, 'An eye for an eye and a tooth for a tooth. "
And I tell you, "Do not resist an evil person,
But whosoever shall smite thee on thy right cheek, —
Turn to him the other also "(Matthew 5:38, 39).
By? Apparently, Jesus repeatedly made his new commandment, expounded it in different ways. In any case, the evangelist Luke wrote it like this:

After descending from the mountain, Jesus stood on a level place, lift up his eyes to the disciples, and said:

But you listen to say:
"Love your enemies, do good to them that hate you,
Bless those who curse you, pray for those who mistreat you.
Strikes you on one cheek offer the other also "(6:17, 20, 27? 29).
Now let us see the behavior of Jesus Christ himself, when he was starting to hit his cheek. In the Gospel of John says that after the arrest of Jesus Christ did not give clear answers to the questions of the High Priest. Then

One of the officers standing by struck Jesus on the cheek, saying:
"So you answer the high priest?"
Jesus answered him:
"If I have spoken evil, bear witness of the evil;
but if well, why do you strike me? "
Why did not Jesus demonstrated the viability of his new commandment and not framed to hit him a minister the other cheek? Or sermon — this one, and life — completely different? However, there is good reason to believe that Christ the high priest questioned thoroughly scared, and he was not up to my memories of the New Testament commandments. In any case, Jesus Christ — it is not a "partisan during the interrogation."

6. Jesus Christ is not a coward or a coward?

If you look at the inner circle of Jesus Christ, you will inevitably come to the conclusion that it is — the Son of God's inner circle — consisting of a knocked out vital track people, what? Then looking homeless, the downtrodden individuals. To look after all his contemporaries and to focus not seen. Setting Christ what? Then lust and longing feared. When arrested, his idol, his admirers were scared to death and fled in all directions together. Jesus felt bunny souls of their followers and keep them encouraged. And most importantly — urging them to switch their fears of the phenomena of mortal fear and land on the benefits of eternal life:

I tell you, my friends:
"Do not fear those who kill the body and then are not able to do anything more.
But I will tell you whom to fear:
Fear him who, after killing power to cast into hell —
Verily I say unto you, Fear him. " (Luke 12:4, 5)
"Do not fear those who kill the body, soul, but can not kill. And fear him
who can destroy both soul and body in hell. " (Matthew 10:22).
But Jesus Christ, calling his surroundings for courage (John 16:33), he was a coward. So, while preaching in Judea local people decided to beat Jesus with stones.

"After these things Jesus walked in Galilee: for Judah did not want to walk,
because the Jews sought to kill him "(John 7:1).
You see, Christ scared to walk in Judea, because there he "sought to kill."

The same Evangelist John says, when Christ began to expound his teachings in the church (8:20) and called the Jewish children devil, the father of lies (8:44), and declares himself a contemporary of Abraham, who lived 1,400 years before Christ, the students found him raging (8:52) and

"Picked up stones to throw at him. But Jesus hid himself
and walked out of the church that have passed in the middle of them, and so on "(8:59).
Luke says that the residents of his native city of Jesus, having heard his crazy speeches,

"Full of wrath, and got up, drove him out of the city,
led to the top of the hill on which their city was built,
to overthrow him.
But he again that passed among them retired "(4:29, 30).
The holy Fathers and Doctors of the Church the term "proshed midst" interpret the spirit of miracle: that Christ, save me, had to resort to a miracle and become invisible to enemies.

Okay, let it be a miracle here. But the miracle did not hide cowardly man who "was afraid of those who kill the body," and for the salvation of his body did not hesitate to use magic. As you can see, the Gospels give sufficient grounds to conclude that the cowardice of Jesus Christ and of the violation of the recommendations it offers its followers.

Anticipate an objection. In response to the accusation of Jesus Christ of cowardice quirky theologian can say, "Christ — not a coward. He shied away from stoning and death threats, not because he was afraid, and just — he has to die, "it's time" (Luke 13:35), "all — time" (Ecclesiastes 3:1? 8), "Why die not in its time "(ibid., 7:17), for Jesus in these cases is" not the time favorable "(Isaiah 49:8, 2? Corinthians 6:2). Jesus Christ Himself in the cited sections said: "My time has not yet come" (John 7:6)

But the words of Jesus Christ — not an excuse cowardice, but only excuse coward! Imagine that from the battlefield before the start of the battle the soldiers fled. Escaped fugitive, of course — a coward. And suddenly, in my defense deserter begins to claim that he did not run away because he is — a coward, but because …: "My time has not yet come to fight"! .. Hearing that we have that — refuse to accept a coward a coward?

7. Jesus Christ gave to his apostles, false promises.

a. The apostles did not become rich, and vice versa.

One day Jesus Christ came the rich young man and asked for advice: "Good Teacher What should I do good to get eternal life? "(Matthew 19:16). Christ is first advised him to keep the commandments of God, and then — to sell their property, given to the poor and to go along with his apostles. Then the apostles said, "Behold, we have left everything and followed you. What do we get for all this "(19:27). Christ promised to put all the apostles on the thrones of heaven, and all this added

"Everyone who has left houses or brothers or sisters, or father and mother,
or wife and children, leaving all his property for the sake of my name will receive a
instead of a hundred times more, and in addition to this everlasting life "(19:28, 29).
I do not know how it's due to the thrones of heaven, but the Bible and church tradition or one of the apostles of Christ, not get rich in this life. And the promise of Jesus to send them a hundred times more than what they left behind has not been implemented. True, this promised the Apostles of Jesus Christ the favor later privatized preachers of Christianity itself with millions of percent profit.

b. The apostles did not wait for the promised second coming of Christ in glory.

Hearing of the people, and an apostle of Jesus Christ says to his second return to earth (the second coming of Christ), the last judgment, the end of the world and the coming of the kingdom of God (heaven) survive some of those present at his sermons. "Truly I say to you, 'Do not pass away until (" race "- a generation", that is — not all present peremrut? ED), all these things shall be "(Matthew 21:32, Mark 13:30, Luke 21 : 32). "Truly I say to you:" There are some standing here who will not taste death before they see the kingdom of God come with power "(Mark 9:1, Matthew 16:28).

It took more than 19 centuries, was replaced over 50 generations (birth), and there is not the Second Coming of Christ, or the Last Judgment, no end of the world, nor the kingdom of God. I will not! Since the promises of the Gospel of Jesus Christ — is the promise vain.

8. Do not drink a little water from Christ, and that goats become …

Inviting to his followers, Jesus Christ, the Gospel, saying, says:

"Whoever is thirsty, let him come to me and drink. He who believes in Me, the
as the Scripture has said, out of his belly shall flow rivers of living water "(John 7:37, 38).
Gospel Jesus invites deception to his people to drink the water from its source. His reference to Scripture — is untenable. In the Old Testament, there is no word about the rivers of living water out of the womb.

But this time we put aside the untenable Biblical knowledge of Jesus Christ. Let us examine his teachings — to this river of living water. And the naked eye can see that a whole bunch of teachings of Jesus Christ is fundamentally unsound, that the teachings of Christ believers failing listen, are touched, but in their practical life is not applicable.

Christ is all talk, but to follow his teachings dangerous. Remember caution fabulous Alyonushka: "Do not drink, my friend, a little water from the hoof, and that'll be the kid!"

Who believes nothing is threatening to become the kid, but to join the Evangelical goats — is within reach. Recall that at the Last Judgment on the right side of Christ will be the sheep — in general, the soul sound, good people. And to the left of Christ himself will place all those in his life nothing good ever made by his neighbor, and hence — not himself. Listening to some of the recommendations of Jesus Christ, the believer will certainly fall into the herd of goats.

Examples? — Please!

1. "Truly I say to you:" If you have faith as a mustard seed, and say to this mountain, 'Move from here to there' and it will move. And nothing is impossible for you not to be "(Matthew 17:20)," If you have faith and do not doubted … and say to this mountain, 'Go up and cast into the sea "- will" (Matthew 21:21, Mark 9:23 , 11:23, Luke 17:6).
Well? Who? Anything from normal believers ever tried to move their faith hill or mound even though a ball? Normal believer, Christian sheep herd, there will not be trying that? There move your mustard seed faith.

2. If you believe in Christ, we receive of him, "the authority to trample on snakes (well, for example, the cobra or there, Gurza — ED), and scorpions, and over all the power of the enemy (!), And nothing hurt you "(Luke 10:19). "Those who believe in Christ will be accompanied by a sign: … will take (with his bare hands — ED), serpents, and if anything deadly (well, for example, potassium cyanide, or barbitallu hundred grams, or 98?% Sulfuric acid) drink, not hurt them "(Mark 16:17, 18).
Believers! Do not listen to Christ on serpents and scorpions, or step, in the hands do not take it, do not drink the deadly! Do not take all the advice seriously Christ!

3. "Do not worry about your life, what you will eat or drink, or about your body, what you will wear … Look at the birds of the air: they neither sow nor reap, or gather into barns, and your heavenly Father feeds them. Are ye not much better than they? "… And this is why the clothes care? Look at the lilies of the field, how they grow: they neither toil nor spin. But I say unto you, That even Solomon in all his glory was not arrayed like one of these. If the grass of the field, which today is, and tomorrow is cast into the oven, God clothes, how much more will you of little faith? "(Matthew 6:25? 30).
All of the above — touching. But do not follow these guidelines of Christ, and even a kid will not.

4. A believer who sat down to the friendly advice of the soul of Jesus Christ, "poke your eye out" (Mark 9:47, Matthew 18:9), or "cut off your arm, leg or some other? Offends you or a member of" (Mark 9:43; Matthew 18:8), or for a full guarantee of salvation — "castrated, castrate yourself" (Matthew 19:12)?

No one else wanted? Or all? Yet — is?

And in conclusion. In the set of the evangelical counsels of Jesus Christ reflected a common human morality, including its golden rule: "Do unto others as you would have them do unto you." ("Do not wish for others what you do and does not want"). But this moral rule is present in all human societies and dormitories. In this moral rule there is nothing divine. And so all that is in the teachings of Jesus Christ comes from a man of his experience, his mind, and is designed to strengthen human and social life, it is acceptable and "good is." And all that in the teachings of the Gospel of Jesus Christ comes from God, is contrary to the nature and the human mind — all you have to gather and "cast into hell, where only weeping and gnashing of teeth" (Matthew 8:12, 13:42, 50; 22:13, 25:30, Luke 13:28).

Century AD, and edited until the early 5th century. The authors of the books of the Bible was much more — over a hundred people! — Because some of the books, for example — the Psalms, written not so much one of David, as it is traditionally said theology, and at least a dozen more other writers, "The Book of the Prophet Isaiah," has at least four authors, the First and Second Chronicles (Chronicles) composed an entire corporation royal and priestly chroniclers, "Wisdom," "Wisdom of Jesus son of Sirach," "Proverbs" is a compilation of folk wisdom — the folklore of the Jewish people.
