When Jesus raises Lazarus from the dead. That is my favorite story in the bible.

I like the omitted parts where they failed to mention that it was plaguarized, fictionalized and then homogenized from previous pagan sources.
One can lead a horse to water however, if one holds the horse's head under, that horse will drown.

I always favored the parables, (where Jesus would tell his diciples stories to try to make them think a little bit) like the farmer sowing the seed, and someone came and planted thistles amongst the plants.  The servants asked the farmer if they should pull out the thistles, but the farmer said no, because you might uproot some of the good plants along with them.) Then he explained that the good seed was the Word of God being planted and thistles were the work of the devil trying to discourage people from hearing and believing.

This is just the sort of sanctimonious proselytizing that makes the 'bible' good kindling.  Supposedly, the same 'g-d' who 'made' seeds also 'made' thistles.  You can't have it both, (contradictory), ways.

Favorite Bible story?  That's a tough one honestly.  There's a ton of good stuff in there.  I don't think I can pick just one, though if I had to, the entire story of Jonah is up there near the top.

Between it being plaguarized, fictionalized, homongenized and proselytized there isn't much remaining of that cobbled-together illiterary slapdashed "book".  And yes, I've read it, (the pages make for good kindling in the fireplace or, barbeque grill though - which is somewhat apropos).

The Christmas Story
Out in the fields, an angel of the Lord appeared to the shepherds who were tending their flocks of sheep by night. The angel announced that the Savior had been born in the town of David. Suddenly a great host of heavenly beings appeared with the angels and began singing praises to God. As the angelic beings departed, the shepherds decided to travel to Bethlehem and see the Christ-child.
There they found Mary, Joseph and the baby, in the stable...with the animals. After their visit, they began to spread the word about this amazing child and everything the angel had said about him. They went on their way still praising and glorifying God. But Mary kept quiet, treasuring their words and pondering them in her heart. It must have been beyond her ability to grasp, that sleeping in her arms—the tender child she had just borne—was the Savior of the world.

Silent night, Holy night,
All is calm...all is bright"

The Christmas Story

Even as fiction, that one would've been redlined by an editor.   :-X

Well then, what is your favorite story in the Bible falcon because I know you wouldn't be just "spamming"/"trolling"...   :dontknow:
(?)-I thought you were going to be busy working on your new thread topic "One hundred fun things to do while sitting a 'time out' in the corner"... ;D

This thread occurs in the off topic forum and I made an on topic reply which indirectly implied that I don't have one, (zero out of zero would be ... zero).

Since I'm not in a "time out corner", I have available time to post, (as the moderator indicated, another occurance by all participants involved in the ruckus you allude to would serve virtual time).  Facts can be your friends or, inconvienent evidence.

I can't say that I have a favorite story, but my favorite parts are when Jesus visits different places and never lets on as to who He is...and then of course when the Lord acts on His promises.  I also must say that I love Psalms...because even in my darkest hours and don't know what to say/ask or how to say/ask...I can always read psalms and it's the same as crying out, but He gives us the words to read...and in turn...what to say and ask of Him.

I "had" to pick on you a little...I couldn't believe that your *crickets chirping* post launched a post with about 450 *chirps* which led to a "chase" through other threads, and a warning from Kohler.  You definitely know how to keep things exciting around here!! :o

It was the 420 "chirps" trolling post which initiated the "chase", (close enough though).  Turns out that trolls don't like being 'fed' that which they cannot digest, (which apparently causes them to whine, and that in turn constituted said 'ruckus').  Kohler's warning did apply to all involved however, and this reply was not intended to rekindle an old 'flame'.  :o   :-X
