How Aunthentic The Bible Is?

A page from the earliest surviving Bible, of which another fragment has been discovered in Egypt

Christians are the most intelligent inhabitant of this world spiritually speaking. Why and How?

Lets take a look and study the only basis and foundation of Christians belief and doctrines " The Bible" How authentic it is? Personally I didn't know much about the ways and details of how this book are been written. I have read and finish the whole books of the new testament, I was not a Christian then, I'm a member of Roman Catholic Church. I remember attending mass to different churches in different places back in my country and go back home with a sampaguita flowers for my Sto. Nino ( A graven image of child Jesus ).

That was a summer vacation then, and I have no place to go and practically doing nothing at home when I started reading the Bible's new testament. Since then I got interested in reading it just like a romantic novel of love, where some can't wait to read and finish it chapter by chapter and while on the course of reading it I haven't notice the tears flowing from my eyes I can't exactly explain why but since then I've stop attending to any catholic mass again ever.But many notwithstanding the facts and authenticity of it remains doubtful about the scripture

The Bible: A brief history

Although earlier fragments of the Bible have survived the passage of time, the Codex Sinaiticus is so significant because it is by far the most complete. The full text that has been discovered so far contains virtually all of the New Testament and about half of the Old Testament.

But whenever an ancient version of the holy book is found, it often raises questions about the evolution of the Bible and how close what we read today is to the original words of Christ and his early followers.

The Old Testament was written largely in Hebrew (with the odd Aramaic exception) but it is by no means a homogenous entity. Protestant and more recent Catholic versions of the Bible tend to use the Masoretic Text, a variation of the Hebrew Old Testament that was copied, edited and distributed by Jewish Masorete scholars between the 7th and 11th centuries. Earlier Catholic translations and the Greek and Russian Orthodox churches use the Septuagint, an ancient Greek version of the Hebrew text that was translated between the 3rd and 1st centuries BC.

In studying the early history of the New Testament, historians have about 5,650 handwritten copies in Greek on which they can draw, many of which are distinctly different. As Christianity consolidated its power through the first millennia, the four gospels of Matthew, Mark, Luke and John came to form the key elements of the New Testament.

You want to know who holds the power of God and the wisdom of God in the bible. and the wisdom you need to acquire to live in harmony with this world. It's just a question away

The Christians Way

Christians are the most intelligent inhabitant of this world.
That is true. In what aspects? I would say in terms of
Spirituality and awareness to the things of this present times.

Romans 12: 2 Do not conform any longer to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God's will is—his good, pleasing and perfect will.

And how they are able to acquire such awareness?
Members of Church of God International as it is written in the bible

are being taught about the complete doctrines of Christianity as it
was written in the bible nothing more nothing less that's what makes them
away beyond compare to the other organizations proclaiming to be Christians

I Timothy 3:151 if I am delayed, you will know how people ought to conduct themselves in God's household, which is the church of the living God, the pillar and foundation of the truth.

2 Timothy 3:17 That the man of God may be perfect, thoroughly furnished unto all good works.

Majority of us believe in the existence of the almighty God even the Atheist they just denying to acknowledge it. And most of us are aware of heaven and hell, the life after death.

A non-Christian thought of the things of this world, his mind settings are primarily about almost anything in this present world can offers like wellness, and material wealth which would perish
I Corinthians 7:31 those who use the things of the world, as if not engrossed in them. For this world in its present form is passing away.
Matthew 6:19 Do not store up for yourselves treasures on earth, where moth and rust destroy, and where thieves break in and steal.

A Christian thought and hope of the things that is to come in the new heaven and new earth

2 Corinthians 4:18 So we fix our eyes not on what is seen, but on what is unseen. For what is seen is temporary, but what is unseen is eternal.
1 Corinthians 2:9
However, as it is written: "No eye has seen, no ear has heard, no mind has conceived what God has prepared for those who love him"
Revelation 21:1-4
1 And I saw a new heaven and a new earth: for the first heaven and the first earth were passed away; and there was no more sea.
2 And I John saw the holy city, new Jerusalem, coming down from God out of heaven, prepared as a bride adorned for her husband.
3 And I heard a great voice out of heaven saying, Behold, the tabernacle of God is with men, and he will dwell with them, and they shall be his people, and God himself shall be with them, and be their God.
4 And God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes; and there shall be no more death, neither sorrow, nor crying, neither shall there be any more pain: for the former things are passed away.

It is wise to have hope and Christians hopes for eternal life, lets say for example that its not actually true that there is life after death in heaven, I would still definitely considered it as an intelligent choice, Why? Taking risk is better than just do nothing at all, its like a ship journey towards the middle of the ocean that didn't know where it is heading to.

Levir Al vel Legis ( By Aleister Crowley )

Aleister Crowley (pronounced /ˈkroʊli/; 12 October 1875 – 1 December 1947), born Edward Alexander Crowley, and also known as both Frater Perdurabo and The Great Beast, was an influential English occultist, mystic and ceremonial magician, responsible for founding the religious philosophy of Thelema. He was a member of the esoteric Hermetic Order of the Golden Dawn, as well as a co-founder of the A∴A∴ and eventually a leader of Ordo Templi Orientis (O.T.O.). He is known today for his magical writings, especially The Book of the Law, the central sacred text of Thelema, although he also wrote widely on other subjects, including a large amount of fiction and poetry

The writing
Crowley claimed to have written The Book of the Law on 8, 9 and 10 April 1904 (though his diaries and published accounts alternatively list April 1 and April 7, 8 and 9) between the hours of noon and 1:00 pm, in the flat where he and his new wife were staying for their honeymoon, which he described as being near the Boulak Museum in a fashionable European quarter of Cairo, let by the firm Congdon & Co. The apartment was on the ground floor, and the "temple" was the drawing room.

Crowley described the encounter in detail in The Equinox of the Gods, saying that as he sat at his desk in Cairo, the voice of Aiwass came from over his left shoulder in the furthest corner of the room. This voice is described as passionate and hurried, and was "of deep timbre, musical and expressive, its tones solemn, voluptuous, tender, fierce or aught else as suited the moods of the message. Not bass—perhaps a rich tenor or baritone." Further, the voice was devoid of "native or foreign accent".

Crowley also got a "strong impression" of the speaker's general appearance. Aiwass had a body composed of "fine matter," which had a gauze-like transparency. Further, he "seemed to be a tall, dark man in his thirties, well-knit, active and strong, with the face of a savage king, and eyes veiled lest their gaze should destroy what they saw. The dress was not Arab; it suggested Assyria or Persia, but very vaguely."

The Book of the Law is heavy on poetry, but light on theology. It generally encourages a libertine approach to life, the use of "strange drugs" and various obscure adjurations like "Let my servants be few & secret" and "Choose ye an island!"

Whether mystically transmitted or an act of creative excess, the Book of the Law is a remarkable document. In cryptic and poetic terms, the book lays out a kind of scriptural framework for a spiritual path called Thelema, the Greek word for "will." The most famous line in the book, while derivative of previous spiritual writings, would forever be associated with Crowley:

"Do what thou wilt shall be the whole of the law."

Aleister Crowley is surely the most famous Satanist and black magician of the twentieth-century.

In 1909, Crowley began publishing the Equinox to spread his ideas.
Aleister Crowley called himself "The Great Beast", a reference to The New Testament's description of the Anti-Christ. In his masses he used cocaine, opium and hash.

Crowley’s philosophy was as follows (which is the exact same philosophy of all Witches and Satanists today):

“Do what thou wilt shall be the whole of the law.”

“Lust, enjoy all things of sense and rapture. Fear not that any God shall deny thee for this.”

“I do not wish to argue that the doctrines of Jesus, they and they alone, have degraded the world to its present condition. I take it that Christianity is not only the cause but the symptom of slavery” (Crowley, The World’s Tragedy, p. xxxix).

“That religion they call Christianity; the devil they honor they call God. I accept these definitions, as a poet must do, if he is to be at all intelligible to his age, and it is their God and their religion that I hate and will destroy” (Crowley, The World’s Tragedy, p. xxx).

Crowley studied Buddhism and Hindu yoga, following in the footsteps of Helena Blavatsky, and did much to popularize these in the West.

Some of the bands/musicians influenced by Aleister Crowley

A number of rock musicians have been fascinated by the persona and ideas of Aleister Crowley, and several have made reference to him or his work in their own.

Popular music groups who have made passing references to Crowley include:

The Beatles, who placed him among dozens of other influential figures on the cover of their concept album Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band

David Bowie, whose song "Quicksand", featured on his album Hunky Dory, makes the reference "I'm closer to the Golden Dawn, immersed in Crowley's uniform of imagery..."

Numerous heavy metal rockers have incorporated Crowley in their lyrics, though their interpretations more often follow the tabloid "Satanist" image of Crowley and not his actual writings. Such lyrics dwell on Crowley's sometime use of Christian eschatological imagery such as the number 666.

Ozzy Osbourne in his solo album Blizzard of Ozz released the song Mr. Crowley which was about Crowley's struggles and beliefs.

Ministry have also referred to Crowley in lyrics and sampled his voice on the track "Golden Dawn" from their Land of Rape and Honey album. The band reiterated in their album Psalm 69, in the eponym song the last lines "The way to succeed or the way to suk eggs" are borrowed from the Book of lies.
Iron Maiden, also made references to Crowley in many of their songs (most obviously "Moonchild", on the "Seventh Son of a Seventh Son" album);
Celtic Frost released a (now classic) album named "To Mega Therion". Crowley had adopted this title, which means "the Great Beast".
Carcass (band) repeats "Hate is the law, love under will", a slight variation on the phrase from Liber AL vel Legis in the song "Firm Hand" on the album Swansong.
Behemoth: a record of theirs is entitled Thelema 6.

Tiamat, a Swedish metal group, in their album "Prey" with songs like "Light in Extension" (a direct quote from Crowley), and "The Pentagram" where Crowley was directly quoted from one of his recorded lectures.
Paradise Lost and Finnish band Babylon Whores. In his film House of 1000 Corpses, Rob Zombie used an actual recording of Crowley himself reading his poem "The Poet".
Perhaps most curiously, Led Zeppelin guitarist Jimmy Page owned Crowley's Loch Ness estate, Boleskine House, from 1971 to 1992. It is also said that on some pressings of the Led Zeppelin III album, one or more Aleister Crowley quotes are inscribed into the runoff matrix of the vinyl (the space between the last groove and the label.) This may be a misinterpretation of the signatures left by master cutter George Peckham.
Page also composed the original music for Lucifer Rising, a film by Kenneth Anger heavily influenced by Crowley.
Mick Jagger composed the soundtrack to another Crowley inspired Kenneth Anger film, 'Invocation of my Demon Brother'.
Crowley is the old man pictured on the cover of Led Zeppelins fourth album (IV, Zoso, Runes etc).
Former Pantera frontman Philip Anselmo used the alias "Anton Crowley", (In reference to Anton LaVey from "Satanic Bible" fame, and Aleister Crowley), to avoid lawsuits while recording for his many side-projects.
John Frusciante (Red Hot Chili Peppers) is an admirer of Crowley, and the songs, '666' , 'I'm Around' , 'Emptiness' and 'Look On' (from his solo album, 'Inside of Emptiness') are all inspired by Crowley.

The following information is from WIKIPEDIA.COM...

Aleister Crowley is no doubt an occultist or in a more correct way a certified Cult leader who deceived his disciples thru malicious and inhumane ideology and perverted interpretation of the holy scripture. His philosophies never really made such an remarkable contribution in terms of integrity to humanity as a whole except for those of his kind who seek for theme self things more than they are able to think of and was victimized by the fruitfully poetic erroneous inherited or implanted teaching and beliefs like that of Scientology famous for its institutionalized mockery of God and Christ.

His influential and mystique appeal to the musicians and artist up to this present time is undeniably true, but certainly understandable musicians are by far always cling to an image of addiction to bad habits like smoking drinking, drugs and woman's, overwhelmed by success open resulted to self-centered belief, But even though that malicious and erroneous belief acquired to some other philosophies particularly that of Aleister Crowley inputted in a lyrical composition of an musicians or artist this thing never really matters most to the audience. As for myself lyrical composition is an important part of the song as a whole but melody plays the main part that makes people in love with it, and take not into mush consideration the lyrics intention. An exception maybe for the love song and ballads?
Its funny to learn this man proclaiming himself the "Great Beast" while on the Bible where he acquired this name the beast is actually is in symbolical form.

Book Of The Names Of The Dead (Necronomicon)

The Necronomicon is a fictional “prop,” invented by the American writer Howard Phillips Lovecraft
HOWARD PHILIPS LOVECRAFT (1890-1937) Was not an occultist of any kind, but just a writer of short horror stories who was unknown in his day.
As mentioned, far from being a believer in magic Lovecraft was, in fact, an atheist!

Lovecraft was often asked about the veracity of the Necronomicon, and always answered that it was completely his invention. In a letter to Willis Conover, Lovecraft elaborated upon his typical answer:
Now about the “terrible and forbidden books” — I am forced to say that most of them are purely imaginary. There never was any Abdul Alhazred or Necronomicon, for I invented these names myself. Robert Bloch devised the idea of Ludvig Prinn and his De Vermis Mysteriis, while the Book of Eibon is an invention of Clark Ashton Smith's. Robert E. Howard is responsible for Friedrich von Junzt and his Unaussprechlichen Kulten.... As for seriously-written books on dark, occult, and supernatural themes — in all truth they don’t amount to much. That is why it’s more fun to invent mythical works like the Necronomicon and Book of Eibon.

How Lovecraft conceived the name
"Necronomicon" is not clear — Lovecraft said that the title came to him in a dream. Although some have suggested that Lovecraft was influenced primarily by Robert W. Chambers' collection of short stories The King in Yellow, which centers on a mysterious and disturbing play in book form, Lovecraft is not believed to have read that work until 1927.
Lovecraft wrote that the title, as translated from the Greek language, meant "an image of the law of the dead": nekro νεκρός ("dead"), nomos - νόμος ("law"), eikon - εικών ("image"). Robert M. Price notes that the title has been variously translated by others as "Book of the names of the dead", "Book of the laws of the dead", "Book of dead names" and "Knower of the laws of the dead". S. T. Joshi states that Lovecraft's own etymology is "almost entirely unsound. The last portion of it is particularly erroneous, since -ikon is nothing more than a neuter adjectival suffix and has nothing to do with eikõn (image)." Joshi translates the title as "Book considering (or classifying) the dead."

Giger's most wonderful book of his artwork. his Necronomicon is an oversized and stunning collection of photographs, paintings, and sculptures, as well as interviews, essays, and autobiographical text.

Reinforcing the book's fictionalization, the name of the book's supposed author, Abdul Alhazred, is not even a grammatically correct Arabic name. The name "Abdul" simply means "the worshiper/slave of...". Standing alone, it would make no sense, as Alhazred is not a last name in the Western sense, but a reference to a person's place of birth.

Influence of this book to Music and even Games today
A number of musical pieces have been inspired by Cthulhu and the works in which it appears. Perhaps the most famous such work is Metallica's "The Call of Ktulu".The British black metal band, Cradle of Filth, released "Cthulhu Dawn" in their "Midian" album in 2000.
Morbid Angel
the band's original lyrical themes focused mostly on Satanism, Occultism and anti-Christian subject matter, but from Blessed Are the Sick onward, the lyrics slowly moved toward the ancient Sumerian gods. Much of this is a nod to the Simon Necronomicon, which was influenced by Sumerian mythology as well as the author H. P. Lovecraft

• The Chaosium game Call of Cthulhu features Cthulhu prominently, as might be expected.
• The Dungeons & Dragons sourcebook Deities & Demigods
• The PC/Xbox/PS2 game Max Payne lists Cthulhu as one of the beings invoked by Jack Lupino.
• Munchkin Cthulhu from Steve Jackson Games
• The online game Lost Souls includes Cthulhu as a semi-divine being.
• Cthulhu can be summoned in the Nintendo DS game Scribblenauts.
• In Castlevania: Symphony of the Night there is an enemy called Cthulhu.
• In the Gaia Online related Facebook application Ocean Party a special fish called "Cathulhu" can be earned.

Morbid Angel, A Death Metal band patronizing the book of Necronomicon

As what the creator of this book admittance that this is purely his inventions He actually reveal the truth about his creation and thereby proves any belief that this is written out of Satan's intention. As an atheist Misotheism is a recurrent theme in most of his fiction works. Many of Lovecraft's works are directly or indirectly adversarial to the belief in a loving, protective God
As an horror fiction writer what can you expect from a man who do not believe on the existence of the Almighty Creature instead turn his faith on Physical Science rather than those of the scripture. This book is again for the fools, stupid, and narrow-minded individuals who loves to believed to those teachings, belief and commandments of humans rather than the Creature

Romans 1:21-24

21 For although they knew God, they neither glorified him as God nor gave thanks to him, but their thinking became futile and their foolish hearts were darkened. 22 Although they claimed to be wise, they became fools 23 and exchanged the glory of the immortal God for images made to look like mortal man and birds and animals and reptiles.
24Therefore God gave them over in the sinful desires of their hearts to sexual impurity for the degrading of their bodies with one another. 25They exchanged the truth of God for a lie, and worshiped and served created things rather than the Creator—who is forever praised. Amen.

Titus 1:10-11
10For there are many unruly and vain talkers and deceivers, specially they of the circumcision:
11Whose mouths must be stopped, who subvert whole houses, teaching things which they ought not, for filthy lucre's sake.

Colossians 2:22
These are all destined to perish with use, because they are based on human commands and teachings

Leviathan ( A Book from Satanic Bible )

The biggest question about this book is " Is this book really inspired by the spirit of Satan? "

The Satanic bible is a collection of essays, composed and compiled in 1969 by Anton LaVey, detailing the basic, fundamental Satanic rituals and ideology. Its proponents regard the Satanic bible as the foundation of the Satanic paradigm, while maintaining that the book is not subject to revision nor interpretation and that no ritual or ideology contrary to what is depicted in the Satanic bible is compatible with Satanism. Note – the vast majority of Satanists do not even believe in the existence of a personal being named Satan. Rather, Satan is a symbol of struggle against a tyrannical God.
The Satanic bible is divided into four books, namely “The Book of Satan,” “The Book of Lucifer,” “The Book of Belial,” and finally “The Book of Leviathan.” It is generally believed that Lavey obtained this hierarchy from “The Book of the Sacred Magic of Abramelin the Mage,” in which the above four demons are said to be the chiefs of hell. Each book addresses a different principle of Satanism, and serves a unique purpose within the book as a whole.

Where did Satan originated from? (The bible have the answer)

Isaiah 14:12-14
12How you have fallen from heaven,
O morning star, son of the dawn!
You have been cast down to the earth,
you who once laid low the nations!
13 You said in your heart,
"I will ascend to heaven;
I will raise my throne
above the stars of God;
I will sit enthroned on the mount of assembly,
on the utmost heights of the sacred mountain.
14 I will ascend above the tops of the clouds;
I will make myself like the Most High."

What are the characteristics of Satan, How we get to know his ways? Let the bible speak?

John 8:44 (New International Version)
You belong to your father, the devil, and you want to carry out your father's desire. He was a murderer from the beginning, not holding to the truth, for there is no truth in him. When he lies, he speaks his native language, for he is a liar and the father of lies.

Some of the Death metal bands lyrical themes were mainly base on this books like the song leviathan of Sinister. We listen to this kind of music way back 14 years ago and Im still listen to it now and it never really have an impact to my views in life even that days when Im not a member of the Church yet

Death Metal
music this were we express our youthful aggression during our FEU days . Death Metal is one of the underground musical genre not ordinary people would love to hear. We were longhair then and love to hang or attend gig to a very rare Club supporting the underground scene like Club Nu and Yosh Café’. We are on a Band I played Bass Guitar our band name is Agitator we cover songs from Napalm Death, Cadaver and Benedection, we drink redhorse beer and smoke a lot of Ganja ( Marijuana).

Glen Benton Vocalist of the band Deicide

The lyrical themes of death metal often invoke slashed film-stylized violence, but may also extend to topics like Satanism, anti-religion, Occultism, mysticism, philosophy, social commentary. Most of the bands reflects symbolism of pentagram inverted cross and 666 in their albums artwork and even in the band name itself and they believe it is indeed an act of anti-Christ what they did’nt know is in fact they are barking on a wrong tree and they’re just displaying a screaming evidence of ignorance in the Bible and the teaching of Christianity

As a Christian and a Member of Church of God International we are bless and thankful
to the Almighty for giving us a true preacher who truly preach the whole doctrines and the word of God in its entirety as it is written in the bible we can say we are more knowledgeable than any other religious organization that exist today thanks be to God. Therefore I can say as I know Satan characteristics that this Satanic bible is not actually from Satan himself on the principles that he is a god of lies and deceit. He would not do something that will reveal his intentions to humans. Imagine a very frightening creature preaching saying I am Satan this my doctrine the satanic bible read it, believe and be condemned with me in hell. This is not the ways of deception,

this is one way of deceiving

Matthew 7:15 Watch out for false prophets. They come to you in sheep's clothing, but inwardly they are ferocious wolves.

This book is obviously not the best way to deceive people. This is for the stupid and crazy people
who wants to live in a world full of fictional imagination and want to experience the spiritual feeling of black magic, illusions and occultation rituals.

For those who wants to follow Satan and demons this is for you

James 2:19 (New International Version)
You believe that there is one God. Good! Even the demons believe that—and shudder.

Understanding Human Overpopulation

Human Overpopulation

We are approaching a world population of 7 billion; 100 years ago the world population was barely over 1 billion. Considering the impact of human overpopulation as it relates to war, genocide, extinction of species, pollution, and rapidly diminishing natural resources, of immediate concern fresh water, isn't it time for serious steps to control world population?

Causes of Overpopulation

1. Decline in the Death Rate
2. Rise in the Birth Rate
3. Migration
4. Lack of Education

One of the cause of human overpopulation if not the primary are false religions; initially by attempting to castrate human sexuality, harnessing the pent energy for religious profit, and later by encouraging rampant replication for further religious profit, we need to cut off the head of the consumerism snake: organized false religions.

Given options, it's been statistically proven women with access to and education about family planning limit their offspring based on their economic status. In the modern, First World, urban environments (where populations are in fact trending) women have the option of struggling to survive with children or preventing pregnancy altogether and having a comfortable lifestyle with no progeny. Women from Sydney to Moscow to Tokyo have recognized that economically we've reached population critical mass and have stopped breeding. Global and multi-national organizations recognize that this trend will cause a decline in profits, a shift of power towards labor, and ultimately a complete restructuring of economics towards collectivism via the Internet.

Understanding God's Covenant With Noah

Genesis 9:1 Then God blessed Noah and his sons, saying to them, "Be fruitful and increase in number and fill the earth.
Genesis 9:7 As for you, be fruitful and increase in number; multiply on the earth and increase upon it."
Why these commandment is not intended for our dispensation
When we talk about religious matters there is only one describe as the the most sensible preacher in our time lets try to here it from
Bro. Eli Soriano

This man is no doubt speaks the truth as he base his answer in the Bible as he answer any questions regarding religious queries.

Reality of Religious Influence In A Nation

EU Presses for Immediate Passage of RH Bill in Philippines. A European Union top official in the Philippines, Ambassador Alistair MacDonald, asked Congress to immediately pass the controversial reproductive health bill, saying that the absence of an effective framework for reproductive health is "anti-poor, anti-women, anti-children, and anti-development." "The poor are paying the highest price, both individually and collectively." He said that the EU alls for the effective implementation of a comprehensive national family planning policy, which would promote access to family planning method. In the Philippine House of Representatives, Bill 5043 - or "An Act Providing for a National Policy on Reproductive Health, Responsible Parenthood and Population Development" - is currently pending. The Catholic Church has opposed the measure, saying it would promote abortion. May 14, 2009 GMA News TV
