Not Your Average Atheist Bible Study with Christians

From: Kansas City S.
Sent on: Monday, November 17, 2008 1:59 PM

Hey, peeps, if you are interested or know of someon who would be interested - we'd love to have real Christians over or those who think they are real :o), so pass it on...

Having visited quite a few churches, ministers/pastors and Bible studies over past 6 months or so have been in touch with quite a few Christians "itching" to show us that their god is real, prove it through Scripture and who would like to either convert us or again tell us we are going to hell and they are not.

Normally, constraints of a Bible study or church setting don't allow for "rational, reasonable, logical and historical reviews" and "analytical, critical, and also parsing approach to the Bible chapter by chapter, verse by verse, line by line" - be it NT or OT. So this particular group is geared towards actual delving into hard core facts of the Bible and not washed out version of fairy tales taught at churches by ministers.

Who knows, we may have some ministers show up too. E-mails for RSVP have been sent out to dozens of ministers all over Kansas City area and also Bible group leaders whose e-mail addresses we have located on their church's web sites. As time progresses, we'll be compiling a more detailed e-mail list of clergy through Kansas City area and will be looking forward to them coming and defending their religious views.

This first Bible study will be free for all - introductions, airing grievances against each other side and also the side you are on, bringing up whatever people want to talk about during 1.5-2 hour Bible study, maybe a prayer to god followed by a prayer to the Flying Spaghetti Monster and Hannibal Lector to clone "reasonable" brains to those misled.

This will be kind of like "Festivus" celebrated by George Castanza's parents in "Seinfeld" - hold on to that metal "Festivus" holiday pole/tree!

Plans are to make it a regular event and then start with Genesis.

Bring your Bible, any notes you have about it, and maybe your minister and then be prepared for a Biblical ride of your life!

PLEASE, RSVP TO [address removed], so we know how many people are coming and how to set up the back room.
