Nothing added and nothing taken away

An ex eb make this comment, quote

Had enough of religiosity ritual and rules! Back to the true God of the bible- nothing added and nothing taken away.

end

Good luck with that then though?

You’d never get there ? (IE:find a bible/holy book which has no interference by-man). There is no such bible ?. As the bible is a collection, of writing, of  what the men of old, had then discussed and accepted, and had felt like they liked more than they did like other writings of other people whom were also writing about their own point of view

Those other writings, that had also been circulating in the same area around the time, were the ones that were to end up discarded and left out after they were refused entry ,being felt to be unacceptable to be included/accepted into bible cannon

Correct?

My point is. Bible cannon was STILL put-together by hand/mind of men

So, too late to  (for us now) ever expect that  we observe a book where “nothing will have been added or taken away” then isn’t it?

 

At every single step of the way, selection of writing , “came down to” human choice. And it were human religious hierarchy then who’d get the right through acknowledgment of their own authority, to decide 

Which, make the division and bigotry that has occured  between us human, to seem even all the more  ludicrous ?

If a-God exist . Chances are that this God would far rather that us human would learn to live as if we all felt that perhaps there were NO SO THING AS a-God . IE: LIVE like we are agnostic atheists

As that way, we might then also at least begin to get more serious thought, happening , about “other important matters”. Such as importance of our earths resource management ?. Pollution management ? and worlds peace management? and so on

We might even help to foster  altruism https://www.cell.com/current-biology/fulltext/S0960-9822(15)01167-7?_returnURL=https%3A%2F%2Flinkinghub.elsevier.com%2Fretrieve%2Fpii%2FS0960982215011677%3Fshowall%3Dtrue 

Hell

Cristian, might even begin to BE BETTER EQUIPED  to follow one MAIN IMPORTANT commandment ,MORE OFTEN, to learn to love others more like you would want to also be loved also, yourselves

Correct?

When mind of man has been involved and has “contributed”  to bias ,right throughout time

Then

Christian should be questioning the scripture what are included. Specially the bias bigoted (feeling) scripture. Scripture of like what suggest, that the Christian bible way , might be the only one way to salvation or whatever

That scripture, is recipe for hatred 

How could Cristian be sure 100% that they are not actively involved in CONTINUING A great injustice  through act of helping to pass wrong-judgment ?

From the Jews through to the Christian. Human were always involved in act of discussing deciding and choosing what “writing” they felt that they liked, or disliked

Even seeing the bible as being “the one book” . Is also “an act” of still adhering to “a kind of religion” as well too

Even if Jesus had said the words ,”come follow me”

Nobody know for 100% sure, what Jesus would have gone?. As we are relying on the words of others, who have “promoted it” (footstep forward) from point of view within their own preferential choices (many times which harbour bias)

For all we know

Human might right now even be fallowing troublesome ass holes biased ideas of who had set out to purposely divide humans . So as to then gain better control over them all , to also then help increase their own power as well in the process (“good prosperous business” ,to become hierarchy of, and was even back in  those ancient times too)

Either way

Human are stupid. The length that they allowed holy books go so as to even divide us. To cause us to hate upon others 

If a-God does exist

This God must surely be feeling mighty sad (at human childishness they display in their hate upon others whom are merely different, in some way, than themselves

Religion is been dissolving the humans ability for empathy a evolutionary trait of whats within human naturally (due to mechanism of evolution. Empathy trait, is in fact also a huge strength to aid human survival. This survival in affect survival of the fittest system for human survival)

Human survival trait , will/would have need to also include traits like “empathy” and “compassion”

Or otherwise our system simply wont be “fit” for us to survive

Survival of the fittest. Need not necessarily need to me, that us human would naturally evolve to be  uncaring and uncompassionate or selfish

It is religion what “pushes” that suggestion , on mind of human , man y of who tend to follow the beliefs of others , more like a sheep might

IE: without even giving it “hardy even a second” thought

Much like sheep

 

 

About ExEB

I'm a agnostic/atheist . Interested in learning more about science. I also am an "ex-member" of a group most publicly known within modern times, as the Exclusive Brethren. Whom are an off-shoot of the original Plymouth Brethren group. I'd say it likely my personality could possibly be described as quirky.You know ,as in being , unconventional , unorthodox , unusual, off-centre, strange, bizarre, weird, peculiar, odd, freakish, outlandish, offbeat, out of the ordinary, bohemian, alternative, zany I'm sure iv'e been classed as "crazy" . Many times But then, being born into a group like the exclusive brethren. Doesn't lend itself ? to tend to produce things considered as being "very normal" .Does it I escaped the Exclusive Brethren cult as a 15 year old teenager. Even since that time iv'e been trying to adjust to living life outside the cult. With much of my life being lived within the genre of "wild colonial boy" style. In the general sense of a church-rebel picking and choosing from role models who appeared within-life along the way. But as the exclusive brethren cult had traditionally maintained a general church-rule , of need to shun and totally excommunicate any ex member of their group.Treating such people as if they were dead. Thus this situation developed more to do with my need of following traditionally enforced church-rule , as apposed to it being so much about "life-choices". Certain emotional experiences, and parts of life in general, have led to me adopting a sense of low self esteem. Which is a situation i still deal with from time to time. Through my ongoing interest in science. I find i am able to gather more information to help me better understand my situation. Much about life for me, has often seemed like a massive puzzle.With many missing pieces.
