Acts 28 verse26 [#1157]
« on: March 12, 2009, 09:06:40 PM »
Why should God heal you..? do you deserve it..? If you pray that you will
become a goat will God turn you in to one.. ?

All your problems with the Bible are very basic questions. It shows a very
limited understanding of the Bible. For example; Egypt can be the location
on Earth or represent Evil. Babylon can also represent the son of dawn, the
prince of the power of the air, more commonly known as the devil..a fallen
angel.

A flock of sheep can also represent Jesus's followers..as i'm sure you are
aware. The reason you do not understand is because you do not see fit to
acknowledge God so God has given you up to a base mind and improper conduct.
You will have no excuse when you are judged.

Your religious book says the following;

    * If you believe, you will receive whatever you ask for in prayer. [Matthew 21:21]

    * If you ask anything in my name, I will do it. [John 14:14]

    * Ask, and it will be given you. [Matthew 7:7]

    * Nothing will be impossible to you. [Matthew 17:20]

    * Believe that you have received it, and it will be yours. [Mark 11:24]

Why does it say those things, and you say something entirely different?  Either your book is wrong, you are wrong, or your deity is imaginary.

So, according to you when the Bible states a location, a city or country, it's not actually a city or state but a metaphorical representation of something else....

Thanks, but no.  When I read "Egypt" I don't think about it representing evil... it represents Egypt, a country.
