Who Wrote The Bible by 0monnak0da: 10:18am On Dec 09, 2018
Many Christian people approach me all the time etc preach about their religion often they quote the bible saying

IT IS THE WORD OF GOD


Next I ask them how do you know this?
Who actually wrote it ? And they are stumped.
They would say something like

It was written by men inspired by God
Again I ask

HOW DO YOU KNOW


NO sensible answer is ever forthcoming
Eventually they resort to name calling
Antichrist is the most popular one.
A good way to end rational discussion.
I wish to know the ORIGIN of the bible

How old is it?
Where did it come from?
Why should I believe it?

Many Christian folk never engage with this most fundamental question


Where does the bible come from?


The Bible has 66 books
39 in the old Testament and 27 in the New.

How was it put together?
Over what time scale?
When?
By whom?
Re: Who Wrote The Bible by 0monnak0da: 10:28am On Dec 09, 2018
The bible actually is not a book.

Let me repeat that

The Bible is 66 books
Some body or some people somewhere someday chose 66 books out of thousands of other books and joined them together


Just like a DJ might make a play list of several songs whilst leaving out several other songs


Let us start from the book of Genesis

Who wrote the book of Genesis that tells us what happened


IN THE BEGINNING



WHY AND ON WHAT BASIS OR AUTHORITY?
Re: Who Wrote The Bible by 0monnak0da: 10:30am On Dec 09, 2018
Was it Adam or Eve that wrote the book of Genesis
Re: Who Wrote The Bible by Homeboiy: 10:44am On Dec 09, 2018
I would love to know also

Many people are not permitted to think about the bible. Doing so is rebellious and slapped down vigorously and so our people have conditioned their minds to ignore all the evidence than man existed in Africa First and thousands of years before the bible was written
They ignore the painful reality that it was not written for or about black people and the implication that Jehovah is not a deity for black folk.

Some believe that the Garden of Eden was somewhere in the Midd6 East
Some Igbo people now claim to be Jews neglecting the reality that they could be an older or parent race to the Jews.
Why must it be the other way round?

The Bible is an instrument of enslavement for black people
Re: Who Wrote The Bible by 0monnak0da: 10:51am On Dec 09, 2018
There is equally a problem with the Quran because it borrowed stories from the bible and if the one crumblestop so would the other

Now our people are told that Emekais not good enough you must be Peter


WHY?



To yin is not OK you must be Mary?


WHY.
Re: Who Wrote The Bible by 0monnak0da: 10:53am On Dec 09, 2018
Man has been on this planet for thousands of years but we are asked to believe God had no agenda for black people all this time
Re: Who Wrote The Bible by 0monnak0da: 10:55am On Dec 09, 2018
Jesus lived 2000 years ago and the bible came to us 200 years ago.


Surely Jehovah is not a deity for black people

Was it Adam or Eve that wrote the book of Genesis
Moses wrote the book of Genesis.

PussyRiot:
Moses wrote the book of Genesis.
How do you know this?
When did Moses live?
Was Moses literate?
Where was he schooled?
We're the Hebrewsame the first people to write down stuff about anything, about God?

They came up with a creation story as recorded in Genesis.
Virtually every civilization has their own

But by bringing God into it we are forced to discredit our own and accept the story of Adam and Eve
Of Noah taking all the animals into an Ark

Are we not foolish

My only business with this topic is that 'the Bible' is unarguably a much needed read in the life of humans be you a Christian or otherwise...it is an undisputed doubt that it is a perfect grooming tool for the much needed KNOWLEDGE,WISDOM,MORALITY,etc that is very important in our daily lives,personal and collective dealings,etc.

...In other words,I'd rather focus on its content and importance.

Unarguably?
There is no wisdom elsewhere ?
No wisdom in the Bhagavad Gita,Confucius, Ifa or other places?
For black people the bible is an instrument of cultural and religious subjugation.

The idea that the Jews are chosen by God is useful.....
To Jews.
To the Yoruba it is dangerous.
There is a lot more wisdom in the Yoruba tradition,mores and Ifa
The old Testament is the story of the Hebrews not of mankind we must not forget that.
The New Testament was written in Greek. Ever wondered why?.
Jesus was not Greek his disciples were not Greeks ,

So what has the Bible got to do with Yoruba people?
