I refuse to argue my faith with you. Just because I may be in the presence
of someone with a greater knowledge on a specific topic than myself, I
refuse to shut my brain off and take their words as gospel.
>The Bible is not to be interpreted, but to be accepted.
I believe that the Bible is to be studied. I also believe that no two
people can read anything containing more than a handful of sentences and
have it mean the same thing to each of them. Even when you take something
that seems to be as "concrete" as scientific research, there is usually more
than one way to interpret the results.

You yourself just stated that after the Flood God said OK to eating meat.

I personally don't think that you should judge someone's knowledge based on
one statement made on the internet. You have strong convictions regarding
religion, which is great until you use those convictions to nullify others
thoughts and beliefs. Maybe some of us haven't reached the spiritual level
that you have, or maybe some have surpassed it.......only One knows the true
answer to that.
Bargyla, I respect your knowledge on many subjects, mainly based on your
experiences. But when you make condemning statements to others because they
have a different perspective than you, it's a little hard to take. You're
great at quoting the Bible and your knowldege of The Word is evident, but I
would rather "see" the Bible in your actions.
May God Bless You, however you perceive Him to be.
