LMAO...they are direct quotes!...ohhh the plagirism.<quoted text>
Look it up.
The only two that aren't there are the first two. They are intended to seperate the ONE god, from the original teachings which were polytheistic and used lots of different idols.
1. No Gods before me (separates from egyptian culture and shows jealousy)
2. No Idols (same as above)
3. Lords name in vein (I have not revieled the god)
4. the sabbath (I have not done what the god abominates...)
5. honor your parents (I have not mistreated people, I have not done evil..)
6. Dont kill (I have not killed)
7. No adultery (I have not copulated illicitly, I have not been unchaste)
8. Dont steal (I have not added to the balance weights...)
9. Bearing false witness (I have not turned anyone over to a killer...)
10. Don't covet (I have not stopped the flow of water, I have not encroached upon the fields)
Look it up yourself.
LOTS of the bible was taken from egyptian culture and books that predated the bible by two and a half millenia.
The entire birth sequence, moses, the deciples, death and resurrection after 3 days.
Jesus was not the first guy to die and be ressurected three days later. History is LITTERED with this. Horus was the first we know of. LOTS inbetween.
But, but.. but... This can not be!
The bible couldn't have been borrowed...this is my life!
Guess again. Let's peek inside the bible for a punch you in the face example. How about the story of Jesus?
Jesus born of a miracle.
Joseph born of a miracle.
Joseph was loved most by his father.
Jesus is the beloved son and preffered by his father.
Both received revelations from god
Both have no recorded sin
Both were taken to egypt when they were young.
Both began their work at age 30.
Both fled Egypt to Isreal because of a dream.(as an act of salvation from God.)
Joseph told his brothers he would reign over them and they hated him for it.
Jesus told his brothers and everyone in town who he was and they hated him for it.
Joseph miraculously produced bread and saved people from famine.
Jesus miraculously produced bread and saved people from famine.
Because of envy Joseph's brothers conspired to kill him.
Because of envy Jesus had the elders and priest conspire to kill him.
Joseph was sold to egypt by Judah for 20 pieces of silver.
Jesus was sold to the romans by Judas for 30 pieces of silver.
Joseph did not speak when he was sold.
Jesus did not speak to the judges.
Joseph said to the cup bearer "Be sure to remember me when things go well for you."
The theif on the cross said "Remember me when you come into your kingdom."
Two prisoners were with Joseph and suffering the same punishment.
Two prisoners were with Jesus and suffering the same punishment.
In BOTH cases one prisoner was to be condemned and one given salvation.
Jesus was stripped of his robes and thrown in a pit for three days and arose victorious.
Joseph was stripped of his robes and cast into a pit for three days and arose victorious.
Joseph was imprisoned by false witness.
Jesus went to hell as a result of false witness.
Joseph's brothers smeared goats blood on his robes to blame his demise on animals.
The day of Jesus' death was passover, a goat was sacrificed.
Joseph was brought out of the pit and to the pharoh's right hand.
Jesus was brought out of the pit to the right hand of god.
Nobody believed either was alive after their ordeal.
I can go on....I skipped some.
If the bible will borrow stories from the BIBLE!
What makes you think for a second they would not have borrowed from Egyptian books as well?
Really...you should do a bit of looking into things before you throw around a word like liar.
Makes you appear kind of thickheaded when you are proven wrong.
