It's non fiction , well this is only my opinion i, you all can believe what you want, there is proof, the truth is the bible and when judgement day comes , I will Be a happy day for some and a sad one for others, we are living in horrible times now, evrything that was written in th bible is coming true, many ppl are still very lost , the roman catholic church has been trashing gods name for generatins now, many ppl have been fooled by fake religions, and maany don't want to know anything about god, and just toss him to th side even though he loves every single one of us , and he doesn't wasn't us to stay here is this corrupeted world.. The gates of heaves are closing and many still don't have their name in the book of life, when the door closes and Jesus comes many will look for the real word of god but won't find it because the holy spirit will no longer intervain it will leave you as you are, even if you reAd the bible( if you find one because when the time comes there will be persecutions and the bibbles will be burned) you will not undersant and you won't get filled with the holy spirit, cause the door will be closed...... I'll stop here, I'm not telling you guys to do as I say or to believe what I believe, because sAlvation is individualy, it doesn't matter how much good you do or how Much bad that won't save you, god loves you as you are and if you accept Jesus in your heart there will be many blessings and salvation you have to have faith

but whatevre u believe what you want to believe but when the time comes you will know the truth

god bless you all!

Of course not.... the dam book doesn't even have a valid author (if u believe a non-existing entity made a book, u should check out Satan's Book of the Damned)... Non-fiction is all about facts, but the Bible here looks like something tht comes out of a fiction writer... If u believe tht some all-powerful entity made a book it would be something about ways of enlightenment, instead of boring crud of pride,wraith, and murder

lol this is what i have to study in school...i depends on people`s opinion but i personally dont believe it to be a complete fiction but an over exagerated fiction because it has a historical factor in it as well as all the symbolisms

Probably a few things did happen,but were exaggerated.Like the flood for example,other sources from that time also mention a flood,while noah and his ark probably never happened

In my personal opinion its a story book.

As i said before, in another 2000 years people probly think we worship the great god harry potter and his disciples ron and hermione & think voldemort was the devil >_>

There will be churches, and instead of latin, they will be speaking parcel tongue

Let me ask you? Have you seen a talking snake? Has their ever been a world flood.. (no their has not.. it would have left evidence.) .
Know of any people living inside a Giant fish? Are Bats Birds? Do you believe in unicorns?


yes All the evidence points to the old book being a Fairy tail and nothing else.

I find it hard to believe a book written by people who explained things that couldn't explain under the name of god.

Right. Facts. Like people living for 1000 years. Or a global flood, that conveniently left no evidence. Or a guy getting up from the dead, again with no other sources of evidence. Do you know what a fact actually is?

The answer to the question is - it depends...
Much of the Bible is historical fact, proved time after time by archaeology and new archaeological techniques. Some parts of the Old Testament are hebrew folklaw - including Genesis - but intermixed with that folklaw are real truths. As an example, the story of Adam and eve is very true, whether or not Adam and eve existed! 'Adam' means 'man' and 'Eve' means 'from Man' - so Adam and eve can repreent Humanity. The truth at the heart of the Adam and Eve story is that mankind was once in relatioship with God, but that mankind rebelled because he thought he knew best - and the result is the mess we have today. So although some Bible stories may be thought of as myths, they hide great truths abou the human soul.
Some parts of the Old testament are historical - especially the book of Exodus, and t Two books of Kings etc. Some are prophetic - Isaiah, Jeremiah etc - books that are written by men close to God, telling the people about God and warning them when they rebel against God. Some books are Literature - Job for instance. Again, whether or not Job actually existed as a historical person is not important, but the profound truths behind why there is suffering and the part God plays in the fallen world are extremely relevant to modern society.
The new testament books - the gospels and Acts, are historical and have been verified and checked more than any other ancient literature. And they have been verified by modern archaeology. Most of the rest of the New testament is taken up with letters written to the early churches by Paul and other writers. So being factual or otherwise is again irrelevant; they contain wonderful words of guidance and encouragement (and sometimes chastisement!) that is still as fresh and relevant today as when they were written 2000 years ago. Finally The revelation of John - the last book of the Bible is written in apocalyptic style - as a record of a vision he had. The book tells what he saw as his vision of the end of the world and the last judgement. It cannot be 'proved' as fact as it hasn't yet happened... but then it can't be proved as fiction either. Not is it easy to understand. Even the simplest part - the number of the 'beast' as 666, has had whole books written about it.
Therefore, one cannot say the Bible is Fact, period, or Fiction, period. It depends upon the part and exactly what you mean by fact or fiction. However, what you can say is that all the writers were inspired by God in their writings, and, quite frankly, nothing has ever come close as a blueprint for human guidance, comfort, revolution, God's revelation of himself, and, ultimately salvation.


Agreed..

Do I believe in a higher power? No. Do I know what the Bible talks about? No. But if it has even ONE ridiculous thing....like someone resurrecting from the dead, then Ill label the entire thing as fiction

I used to think that Religion was just an escape from Reality. But then I asked myself, what is reality? Who deems what is reality? Because of this, me playing a Video Game can be just an escape from Reality as Religion. What about me reading a book? What the hell determines reality? If I choose to believe in someone's forum post, how the hell is that different from believing in a Religion? What the hell is REALITY?
