the bible = the tree of the knowledge of good and evil () Jesus = the tree of life

The bible

It is a book containing the knowledge of good and evil.

The forbidden fruit was not an apple. The fruit of a tree is also paper. And upon the pages of the bible is the knowledge of good and evil. The bible is poisoned with the knowledge of evil.

Ritualistic animal sacrifices, ceremonies incorporating the blood of dead animals, superstitious numbers, curses, evil spirits, dark prophecies… all in the bible.

Plotting, conspiracy, mass-murder, betrayal, genocide, slavery, suffering, wars… all in the bible.

A book is not ‘Holy’ if it contains the knowledge of evil, Satan, the devil, demons…

It is darkness. It is contaminated. It is unclean. It is poison.

Religion is the church of the poison mind. Minds poisoned by the knowledge of evil. People are deceived by religion.

The kingdom of God is within us all. Not within the pages of a book containing the knowledge of evil. I have recently shut it for good. I will not touch, nor taste of it again.

Because of Jesus Christ, I’m back in the land of the living. I’ve torn off my fig-leaf, and am returning to Eden. I am who God made me to be. The shame, guilt, and confusion is past-tense.

Thank You Jesus.

The Tree of Life = Jesus Christ

Eat freely from this tree and be saved.

“Imagine” - John Lennon

Imagine there’s no heaven,
It’s easy if you try,
No hell below us,
Above us only sky,
Imagine all the people
living for today…

Jesus is the answer!


Um…that bible you tasted…it didn’t happen to have little pictures of Woodstock on it, did it?

I think it was an ornamental blossoming pear bonsai tended by a Japanese gardener God made from Adam’s tonsils, if that helps.

Well, at least it’s in the correct forum for witnessing.

Rather refreshing, frankly. No pretense. No call to arms. Almost one of Tris’s butterflies.

Wow. I never thought I’d see a Culture Club reference in a religious screed…

And what knowledge do you have of Jesus that is not derived from the Bible?

Backing up Czarcasm here, the only stories about Jesus are in the bible. He’s barely even mentioned anywhere else, and certainly not in any sense as a “messiah.”

Therefore, whether you’re read, heard or seen stories about the man, they all have their basis in the bible, so by your logic are evil.

Mind you, I certainly don’t think they’re even true, but you might want to give your philosophy some more thought. It’s a bit contradictory.

Let me get this straight, then…

Take It Like A Man is evil, but Boy George is the Messiah.



Unless I am really REALLY mistaken, the bible was written well after Adam and Eves time, and about people that only came to exist because of their sin of “eating the forbidden fruit.”
Put the pipe down and try reading a little more…

BTW, I don’t think paper is a fruit (except maybe for public lunchrooms during the Reagan Administration). It’s made from pulp, which is from the wood (not the fruit) of the tree, though in OT times it was made from grasses instead of trees anyway.

we told you not to take the brownacid!

You know, as Christian witnessing goes, I kind of like this one. At least it’s a fresh perspective. I’ve known quite a few Christians who didn’t think the Bible was accurate, but this is the first time I’ve seen one who considered it poisonous.

Besides, he gets bonus points for ending it with Imagine.

My favourite really-unusual-take-on-Christianity, though, remains the belief among some gnostics that the God of the Old Testament is evil, and the Serpent was a hero.

I took it to mean we should eat the Bible.

I am also curious as to the answer of this question. Although I somehow doubt we’ll be hearing from the OP again, in this thread anyway.

From John, chapter 1
In the beginning was the word and the word was God.

So the Bible IS God’s word, it respresents everything He wanted to say.
It CANNOT be evil.
This person is nuts.

Dare I say, God was an asshole, then. At least Jesus seems like a nice enough guy.

What’s the question?

“What was your gardener’s name again?”

I’m fairly certain the Bible was written well after “the beginning”. So it can’t “The Word” mentioned in John.
