God is not evil, Satan is. God punishes like a parent should punish their child. Sorry you didn'tunderstand all of the parts where God is love...he sacrificed His Son for us. Would you or anyone you know do that for all the people of the world that CHOOSE by their own free will to do evil?

Do you know why He had to do that? God does not delight in doing evil. Evil in not in Him at all. Satan is the one whose evil, and we're the one effected by it. "For the god of this world (Satan) has blinded their eyes." Satan has blinded so many people spiritual, but God in His great mercy, sets His people free. He makes us see.

If it meant saving all humanity, I think I would sacrifice my child, as well as a lot of people. Though, I feel most people would see sacrificing themselves as a much more selfless act. The world is filled with selfish people that would probably kill their child to stay alive.

Apparently you have not read your bible from front to back not skipping a single verse. Yahweh is complete evil! I challenge you to read your bible from beginning to end. Don't skip around. Don't pick and choose verses.

Hunger games is a great commentary on the direction that America is going: Bread and Circuses. Distracted masses who pay and know more about cheap entertainment, than they do about what is actually going on in Washington, the World, and Corporate America.

I must have missed something with the Hunger Games..

I read the first one and thought it was just ok. It wasn't spectacular and I really don't get why everyone is so in love with the books, and I get fandom.. I get Star Trek, Star Wars, BSG fans.. I get Sci-fi/fantasy etc.

but Hunger Games just didn't jump out at me as anything really special.. However I have yet to read the 2nd and 3rd, but figure I'll eventually get around to them.

Yeah, I saw that coming. Christians and non-Christians alike, being pig-headed.
Anyways, yes, there is a book that has changed my life. Not that "I feel" has changed my life, but most definitely has, astronomically. I can't get enough of God's Word, and I praise the Lord for it. If the Bible hasn't changed your life, don't go around bashing the people who have been changed by it. We're not on some higher plane or anything, and I'm not looking down on non-believers. I'm just saying, please don't go around insulting something you don't understand.
I said "several books" because, although the Bible is in a category of its own, I highly respect and feel affected by Pilgrim's Progress, Robinson Crusoe, and a few others I can't think of off the top of my head. They didn't change my life hugely, but they've definitely had an effect.

I have to agree with you on this one. I think the bible is a great Jewish History book tho. The history is what makes it a good read, but as far as believing is it anything other than just a book written to control the masses when you get to laws and such, yeah, not so much. The stories are fairly real as the archeological evidence supports most of it. The bible came into being at 3 councils that decided what "books" to use and not use. So some priests chose what went into it, then King Henry VIII did not like that the pope would not give him a divorce, tossed a few books out and a whole new church and bible were created. Also, when Constantine and the Byzantine Emperor decided on this stuff as political means to settle disputes between land areas and ways to worship. Constantine got the West, Byzantine the East. So Orthodox Russian & Greek are almost exactly like Catholic, but have different holidays and a different cross.

Well, your probably not going to like this answer, but one could say that it is a test is someone suggested reading the book of Satan. Just like Abraham was tested by God who led him up a mountain thinking he was going to sacrifice his son or Noah being challenged to build an arc when materialist non-believers caused the earth to flood. By the way the second one is something that we are now facing again just showing how timeless the bible is.

I don't care what religion they are, if he specifically says he is not christian, don't start telling them to read the bible. If he said he wasn't muslim, don't tell him to read the Quran. If he says he isn't a satanist, don't tell him to read the satanic bible. lol His religion or lack of isn't the problem. The problem is that despite his statement that he isn't christian, someone told him he should read the bible, and pray and ask for understanding from the lord. lol do any of you people read? can you see why it was wrong? nobody ever said believing in god is wrong, so stop telling people that not believing is wrong.

Well by stating that you want religion kept quiet, that's basically a fancy way of saying you want atheism. I'm Jewish and not Christian, but I don't mind people stating their beliefs. Also Jews and Christians share the old testiment. I'd rather have a society that is of some religion and tolerant of others than an atheist society where people demand religion be kept quiet.

I have problems with people who think they are better because they believe in god. Like this person said, I am not christian, it's not for me. It is obvious that some of you only read what you want it to say. I don't care what religion you are, i'd prefer religion was kept quiet just like who you vote for. It would make life a little less crazy. But some people just have to make it known that without god our lives have no meaning. lmao And I commented on his post, just as you have, what difference does it make why?

Not bashing anyone? One person is suggesting a book. Wow. How may times have we said, "You should try this!" It's obviously known as a suggestion, correct? So how is suggesting reading a book considered condescending? Oh right, because you said so. Clearly that makes everything make sense. It has nothing to do with the fact that you have problems with one people group. It's too obvious. You're being pushy by telling someone not to make a suggestion. How do you know the person may not want to read the bible? You're trying to defend choice by making it so that the person chooses not to read a bible, because you believe they don't need it.

Why does it even bother you that someone suggested to another to pray? She said IF. She didn't say "You need to pray or else." Clearly you have some problem with Christians, and you're letting your hatred against a people group cloud your judgment. Quite frankly I'd say you're one of those God haters who claims to be atheist. I've had friends who were atheist, and they respected Christians, Muslims, and others all the same. You, however, don't show an ounce of respect. "I don't need your savior." Gee, that didn't sound rude at ALL.

Having an opinion is perfectly fine, but this person is pretty adamant that they are not christian, so it's safe to say that they don't plan on changing because someone on swagbucks asked them to. That being said, if kathy had commented back that the bible had changed her life, that would be alright. By adding " If you pray and ask for understanding the Lord will help you." she turned her simple comment into preaching. haven't made any rude comments to any posters that have said the bible changed their lives, because I am happy that they are happy. I commented on reply by an opposing view on an otherwise like minded comment.

I'm sorry for some of the pushy-ness of the fellow Christians here, but your interjections are just as pushy as theirs. You got these comments because you jumped in and put in your opinion on someone else's comment. This is a public forum so people get to speak their mind freely within reason. Whether people choose to comment that they think if a person asks God for help then they might understand the Bible better is between the 2 commenters and the other person never followed through with any replies. For all you know, that person might have appreciated the first comment. Just a thought.

If someone isn't a Christian they aren't going change their mind just because of a comment on Swagbucks.

Fair enough if the Bible helped them. It didn't help me. I felt content and happy anyway. I have read it. I have gone to a Christian youth club, I have Christian friends. I'm not a Christian. It's my choice that I don't want to find the error of my ways. :P

If I die and find it's all true... well, it would be sad that some of the Christians I know will go to heaven (when they aren't very nice people, they just follow to Bible, God and pray), while some of the atheists I know will go to hell even though they are kind and gentle and good people.

I don't think we should be judged on what we believe in, or what we read.

Well, then you should read this one that changed mine for the better. The Bible. I know lots of people are against those who share about it the Bible and don't want Christians to preach. When you love someone you talk about them a lot. You can't help it. It just comes out because they are everything to you. The Bible is the greatest love story ever written. I can honestly tell you that this book has changed me so much. My favorite book in the Bible is Romans. Romans 3:23 says, "For all have sinned and fallen short of the glory of God." We all do bad things. Romans 5:8 says, "But God demonstrates his own love for us in this: While we were still sinners, Christ died for us." How awesome is that! We are all sinners, but God, in His own love and kindness, wants to save us from Hell and give us eternal life! No news is better than that. Because of this, I can live with joy and hope in Christ Jesus! This is how this book has changed me and I hope it will change

Bible esp. the New Testament, So You Think Your Mind Is Renewed? is great taught me the difference between old and new covenant mindsets. Divine Healing Technician Training manual on praying for the sick. So You Don't Want To Go To Church Anymore? and Pagan Christianity are 2 books opened my eyes to what it means to BE the church and how much man has added traditions to Christianity over centuries, which is different than early church. Victorious Eschatology and Raptureless are 2 excellent books that completely changed my beliefs on end times to partial preterist view and given me a more positive view of future. I now understand the tribulation isn't a future event, but was the Jewish Rebellion where Romans surrounded Jerusalem in 70AD and destroyed the city and temple. I still believe in the resurrection of the dead at Jesus coming in the future.

the various contradictions, the fact that followers of the bible will say it's "the word of god" one moment and the next saying it is just metaphor.

The fact that most of the bible is taken from egyptian mythology, or maybe that many of the "christian" holidays are taken straight from (so called) pagan religions in order to gather more followers. Then of course there was the shaming of other religions. The modern idea of the devil as a cloven hoofed demon with horns is a direct propaganda attack on the Satyr god Pan which was a nature god and had followers, however christianity demonized this god so that people would change their beliefs.

If you have ever played a game of "Telephone" or "Broken Telephone" with 20 or 30 people, you will see how easily a very short story can get distorted. The bible was for centuries, hand written by Monks in churches doing "gods work". You cannot tell me that things were not changed over the
