    I must point out here that there are differences between prophesies and history. *this next statement is not meant to be inflammatory, just to get some thoughts* Who are you to interpret God's account of Genesis into a poem of Sabbath? Where does it say this in the Bible? I want a reference, not an inflection. I'll make my point with 2 Tim 3:16, "All scripture is given by inspiration of God." As for prophesy, there can be a literal meaning and a figurative meaning. Your verse from Revelation 12:4 is referring to the original rebellion of Satan, when he took 1/3 of the angels with him, to be demons.

    A good book to read, is the Bible [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/tounge.gif[/img] [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/tounge.gif[/img]

    Hi,

    Notice, it says "inspiration of God" and not direct, literal, dictation from God's mouth to some human's ear. Inspiration is hardly the word one would choose if one wanted what was said to be taken as literal fact. Inspiration focuses on a state of being and the imagination (poetry) and not the facts and figures of everyday reality.

    A better translation says 'God breathed'. This is a more literal translation than the other one that I used previously. I agree that 'inspiration' can be taken to mean other things such as poetry, but it also has a meaning of God taking a direct part in the formation of it. I don't have the time to get drawn back into a debate though, so this is really my last post!! LOL!!!

    Well my avator is off. It was really not all that funny...at first it was but it lost its flavor. I will go back to my old avator [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img] . Also the file was to big to load.

    Personally, I favor the King James Version. *I must point out that the Book of Mormon, and the Koran do not even claim to be the Bible, just additional information passed down from God (yeah right&#33[img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/wink.gif[/img]. *I don't know enough about the other ones to say what they stand for.

    Where is (your) bible does God say "this is ALL I am ever going to say to humanity..this Bible alone shall be my ONLY words ever spoken to humanity, if anyone ever claims I ever said anything to them that is NOT specifically in this bible, they are lying"

    where in the bible does God say that? [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/confused.gif[/img] [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/wink.gif[/img]
