    There are a quite a few historical societies and academics who would be very surprised to hear that.
    A committee deciding what's divinely inspired is quite different than a committee deciding whether or not Ramses wrote some document, especially when the people use the former's conclusions to affect so many other people.

    Christians believe it because they have faith in the teachings of their Church.

    Because.

    No it isn't. They had criteria they followed, just as any other committee has.

    It's actually very different for the two reasons I listed.

    It's a lie because you forgot the part after "because." Because is not an answer. Because they have faith is barely an answer.

    It's not all that different. Criteria was established and they based their decisions on that criteria.

    That doesn't make it a lie...it only makes it something you disagree with. Faith is because. They believe...because.

    How did they determine that? Did certain scrolls Glow?

    It was politics, people arguing, threatening and compromising, over a 30 year period that led to 27 books becoming the new testament canon--Bishops, Archbishops, a pope and an emperor all getting their 2 cents in.


    If I were putting together a cookbook, would it makes sense to include instructions on how to rebuild a carburetor? You do know what a carburetor is, right?
    You really know nothing about the history of the bible.

    Many so-called Christians never bother to ask or care how the bible came to be. They are spoon-fed a false and misleading interpretations. Evangelical pastors speak in mega-churches as if they're an authority on ancient history, but their knowledge is often wrong and totally lacking in relevant historical context.

    This thread is about whether the so-called "anti-bully" Savage was a bully in this one circumstance.

    Was he?

    Should a keynote speaker invited to talk about alternative social media turn his 15 minutes into an anti-Christian screed? Was this the time or place or audience?

    I think that those who stand on different sides of the larger debate can at least agree on whether the venue was appropriate.
