So reading the preceding, it follows that...Jesus is about "Peace", but wants to cut your spirit in half with a sword made of "Spirit" or "words" or "something." My yoke is easy he says, but first I'm going to cut you (or your spirit).
I think first, the sword must cut you from the process of logical thought, considering the enormous body of contradictions, paradoxes, and problems with Christianity, depending on how you interpret it.
Do you believe the ark story? If so, how did they deal with a year of food and poop? How did they feed the lions?
Do believe in the old Earth or young Earth? Why or why not?
I have higher consideration for the flavor of Christian who considers the whole Bible to be fables, but in many Christians' views, those persons are not Christian.
I am curious who believes what. There are around a billion different interpretations, which can be lumped into groups, and as @Victor pointed out, some of these groups have major labels, which believe theirs to be the exclusive truth. For example, Russian Orthodox believe they are "the truth." Pity those not born in Russia.
Do you believe the entire Bible at literal or not?
If so, how do you explain ark story, early creation, etc?
If not, how much cafeteria style are you? Is it "partially true", and if so what parts of the buffet do you accept or discount?
