Christian Fallacies
The Christian Bible is the most misread/abused book in the history of the human race

  So please  do  notbe  complicit!  
A widespread problem is the lack of understanding the cultural context of Holy Scripture which results in it being seen in a modern context and misinterpreted,
and an additional problem is accreditation-ambitions of Colleges/Seminaries which often then results in very inappropriate textbooks being used.
Accordingly, making these students aware of unbiblical theories that arise there-from is only legitimate if they are fully adequately rebutted!

Jesus, with reason, called him the
"Father of Lies" for he uses truth to deceive, in what we would today call – 'half-truths'.

The misperceptions in Christianity which have arisen in the historical pilgrimage of the Christian Church reflect
the poor quality of its relationship to its 66 sacred documents in this time (39+27=66), namely:
the 39 books of the Old Testament/T'nach
(composed of 17 Historical, of 5 of Law and 12 of History; then 5 of Personal Human Experience; and 17 Prophetical, of 5 Major and 12 Minor Prophets),
and the 27 of the New Testament (to help remember the two, 3x9 = 27),
composed of 5 Historical from Matthew to Acts, and 22 Letters from Romans to Revelation
(9 to local congregations/churches, 4 to individual Christian leaders, and 9 to Hebrew Christians in general)

Concerning the structure
of the Bible's 66 books.


Old Testament

...and to remember
3 x 9 = 27

New Testament
[5+22 (9+4+9)]
The Church of Jesus Christ, as presented in these sacred documents, is not a religious organisation.
In terms of these it is a unique creation in human history of a spiritual association of individuals who are
directly connected to the Spirit of God in their individual appreciation of the Atonement of the Christ of God
and in their personal child-like trust toward God beyond their own understanding.
Although, sadly, the history of Christianity demonstrates otherwise,
these holy documents show that in God's view the Christian Church is not represented either in organisations or denominations
or even in their leaders and leadership groupings, but only in each local congregation
of mutually-inclusive believers joined together in Christ,
for at Pentecost, Christ gave the Holy Spirit directly to His people as a gathered spiritual fellowship of 120-believers
(that is, gave His own sinless human relationship to the Holy Spirit to them – for them to 'walk in His shoes'),
and not to an organisation, or to its office-bearers, no matter what they may be called.
Acts 1:15Bible
'Seven' simply symbolises
completeness, from
the 7-days of Creation

For this reason the one Holy Spirit of God is presented in the completing climax of Holy Scripture,
in the book of Revelation, representatively as the "seven Spirits of God"
as if the whole Holy Spirit was given to each of the seven congregations being addressed in that book.
Revelation 4:5.
Remember: it is absolutely essential to treat God's Word as it is given to us (His congregation) within its own context and not selectively.
The whole picture presented on a particular issue is necessary, or even the sincere may become guilty of twisting the Holy Word of God Most High.
