Topic: I am starting to question the good book's legitimacy when it comes to being the Word of God.

Catherine !TGirlYJKXM started this discussion 3 weeks ago #755

I know this may sound blasphemous, but considering that we are responsible for newer translations and newer versions of the good book. I fail to see how these versions aren't filled with misconceptions, misinterpretations, and misunderstandings. Humans aren't perfect and this is a notion that is taught within Christianity as well. If we're not perfect that means we make mistakes. So how do we know that the Word of God wasn't lost to us long ago due to human error? Perhaps it became lost to us the split second that it was written down from the actual Word of God? I honestly do not think that churches and scriptures are the way to learning about one's creator. We simply cannot know what the Word of God is nor God's intentions. Thus the expression, "God works in mysterious ways."

If God is omnipresent then why do we have to go to a specific building on a specific day just to be close to Him? Shouldn't we be close to Him everyday of our lives if He's with us constantly? Why must we pray at some venue just for his attention when we could build our relationship with Him at any given time? I know what my friend was saying when he said that everyday feels like Christmas when he is one with the Lord. Because who needs a specific date for feel close to God unless that is a reminder. If you need a reminder to get in touch with your creator then that feels a little sad. Scripture and buildings are just that. Paper, ink, and a building. The relationship with the Lord is something that is always with you.

This is why I don't think I could ever truly follow an organized religion.
