Is the bible really holy and telling the truth that the true name of Christ is Jesus? These issues are worth discussing because billions of Christians are believing on the bible as holy and that allegedly, it contains the whole truth. Are these alleged holiness of the bible and truthfulness in it really so?
The hypothesis that maybe drawn as starting point for the discussion is that the bible is not holy, as it does not tell the whole truth.
First, we will settle the issue on alleged holiness of the bible by knowing first the meaning of word ‘holy’ as indicated in the old testament, more specifically in Leviticus 19:2, which states as follows:
2“Speak to all the congregation of the sons of Israel and say to them, ‘You shall be holy, for I the LORD your God am holy.(NIV)
For the above verse, how should the word ‘holy’ be understood as an adjective in relation to the subject that is being described in the verse? For example, the statement is: “You shall be holy” and “I the Lord your God am holy”. (more…)
What are the historical achievements of the ‘cross’ and ‘rosary’ for them to be elevated to the status of ‘holiness’? Do we have any historical answer? In the case of the cross, historically, Christ and some of his followers were crucified at the cross.
Will such achievements of killing the true believers of God by way of the cross enough to make it holy? Is it logical then to call it unholy killer, having been used to kill and therefore, an instrument which is in conflict with Christ and his followers?
In the case of rosary, history tells that it was used to convert Albigensians to Roman Catholicism.”x x x it was given to the Church by St. Dominic, who had received it from the Blessed Virgin as a means of converting the Albigensians and other sinners.” (theholyrosary.org)
But who are these Albigensians?
