I want to write about these really big, worldly, complex thoughts that I have. Yet, at the same time I don’t want to offend those who offer such a beautiful, pure warm heart to me. I don’t claim to be right and yet… I don’t think my view is in any way off or wrong.
I don’t believe in the bible. Too many cooks have added their own ingredients to the recipe. I feel that if God communicated with man than man should have known better than to edit and twist divinely inspired words. The bible has a great number of contradictions straight from the get go. In the book of Genesis the order of how God created the world varies… greatly.
What really makes me a doubting Thomas is what has been omitted. Why no tales of Lilith in the Christian Bible? In Catechism very early on we were taught that the Old Testament is the same as the Torah. That’s a lie. It is not the same.
In the beginning in Jewish lore God created Adam and Lilith. So why is Lilith not mentioned at all in the Christian version? She’s a very important figure after all. She’s the one that deceived Eve. She’s the serpent…
One lesson that really stuck with me from the Bible was when Jesus went to Jerusalem and trashed the temples. He was angry about the abuse and corruption of it all. No offense to my Christian friends but when I look upon your churches this is what I think of. Where did Jesus preach? On the rock? When do I feel at my best? Hiking. I doubt this is a coincidence.
So while I have love, compassion, and humanity in my heart please forgive me if I never follow from a sacred book. It has too many contradictions for me to take as faithful word.
