Hello, everyone. My name is David and I enjoy Biblical discussion and debate. Though I've never been a part of any organized religion and never will be, I am a believer in the Bible. I guess you could say that my beliefs are very similar to that of the Jehovah's Witnesses, but again, I'm not one of them. I believe in the Bible without the mainstream, traditional apostate teachings. Those being the immortal soul from Socrates, trinity from Plato, hell from Dante and Milton, the cross from Constantine, Christmas from the winter solstice celebrations and later Dickens, rapture from Darby and Easter from the celebrations of the fertility goddess Astarte. All ancient Babylonian teachings introduced later, mostly from Greek philosophy. In Jewish thinking from the influence of Alexander the Great after 332 BCE and in Christian thinking after Constantine the Great in 325 CE.
