The Bible According To DeVaney
The Burial and Resurrection?

 

 

The Burial and The Resurrection

 

by Gary DeVaney

 

 

 

The Trinity

 

DOES A RESURRECTION QUALIFY FOR SALVATION?

 

Peter

 

Paul on Marriage

 

 

 

Suggestion: We should put stickers on all Bibles: "The Bible is only a theory about a hypothesized Supreme Being and that Being's relationship to humans. The error-ridden Bible should be approached with a critical attitude, while considering alternative theories like evolution."

 

 

Matthew 12:40 Jesus prophesied that He would be buried for 3-days and 3-nights as was Jonah in the whale for 3-days and 3-nights.

 

Holman Bible Dictionary: Jesus was “buried” on Good Friday afternoon. On Easter Sunday morning His tomb was found empty.

 

Friday afternoon to Sunday morning is less than 2 days. By no stretch is that 3-days and 3-nights, as Jesus prophesied.

 

You should check out the Wednesday - Sunday spin that both “televangelists” Jack Van Impe and Arnold Murray put on this one. They (and other clergy) have the 3 day and 3 night process start on Wednesday so it would fit. If that be the case, what is the significance of "Good Friday"?

 

Also, Jack Van Impe states: The only way you can get to Heaven is by Grace (unmerited-gift) and that your name has to have been written into God’s Book of Life since before He formed the Earth. He states that nothing can save you if you’re not in the book and regardless of how much you sin and if you are in the book, nothing can pull you away from the hand of God. You are saved.

 

I need an Excedrin. GWD

 

 

Believers are slaves. If you believe, you are a slave.

 

Believer: No – I am not! What is your evidence or proof?

 

A slave cannot question his or her authority. A believer cannot question his or her belief. For if they question – they prove to not truly believe. It is a no-win paradox for the believer.

 

Grace: Unmerited-gift.

 

Theft: Assumed-entitlement.

 

How many people are serving time in prison for rape and theft because they heard some clergy preach Grace; upon which they erroneously had faith and zealously believed they were entitled to unmerited gift? God’s Grace, or The Holy Spirit, obviously triggered certain feelings - and their feelings let them down. God seems to save certain people for prison - a life of living Hell.

 

 

 

"The Trinity" 

 

 

The word "trinity” does NOT appear anywhere in Bible.

 

Paul often mentioned things like: The grace of Jesus Christ, the love of God and the fellowship of the Holy Spirit. . .

 

Is the “Trinity” an after-thought, a Catholic invention, based on Paul's imaginative words? Fundamentalists tend to take "The Trinity" serious and declare if you don’t believe in "The Trinity", you will go to Hell.

 

"The Trinity" claims: Jesus is God - God is The Holy Spirit - The Holy Spirit is Jesus.

 

Behold: If this is true, then Jesus impregnated His Own mother, Mary, so to produce Himself.

 

If you believe in, support and promote "The Trinity", you must believe in, support and promote this fact. Do you still believe in "The Trinity"?

 

Jesus has a God; therefore, Jesus isn't God.

 

However, Mormons, and some other major Christian religions, don’t hold to any Trinity. Different strokes - it seems.

 

Q: So, what do you think?

 

Believer: I don’t know and I don’t care. All I know is that I believe! End of story!

 

You can try to tell some people - - - but, not much.

 

Faith is mostly idealistic fantasy.

 

Nonsense does not stop being nonsense just because one attaches God's name to it.

 

Mankind has developed sciences in an attempt to evaluate attitudes, to study behaviors, to judge characteristics and motives in an attempt to understand animals, people, viruses and other living things. Why do some tend to study God differently? Could it be due to a slave and master mentality? Isn’t it difficult to scientifically evaluate nonsense and fiction?

 

II Peter 1:21 No prophesy ever came through human will; but rather human beings moved by the Holy Spirit spoke under the influence of God.

 

I Kings 22-23 The Lord has put a lying spirit into the mouth of all thy prophets KJV and (God) has decreed evil against you. Catholic

 

What?

 

Liars find facts to be stubborn things. Chronic liars hypnotically attempt to dismiss the verifiable facts in favor of their exploitive agenda. I often ask myself, am I being honest?

 

Michael Godspeed: Most people would rather support a lie and "fit in" than to profess the truth and be excluded. Just as the majority would rather be lied to and made comfortable than be told the truth and made uncomfortable. Liars have held humanity in the throes of illusion for countless centuries. Governmental, religious, and academic officialdom can and do transform basically decent human beings into unconscious automatons bereft of free will. They do this successfully because a majority of humans are terrified to assume personal responsibility.

 

Biblical infallibility is at stake here. How could God inspire His Bible to be so full of contradictions and errors? Jesus’ credibility and credentials are at stake here! Under strict examination, they are awful shaky. Was faith invented to spin and to endure this?

 

Why have only a small percentage of people throughout history personally read the Bible for themselves, by themselves? Until recent generations, weren’t most people, in history, illiterate? Didn’t the world’s greatest Christian denomination of the past 2,000 years (the Catholics) read their mass communication to their congregations in Latin, the dead language?

 

Most believers could not make out a thing the Priests were saying; didn’t care to. Some, today, are so indoctrinated with fear, they dare not question what is written and refuse to read it for themselves. Believers are so highly programmed, they feel a need for some ordained authority to explain it to them. Can’t we take on some self-responsibility and find out what is written for ourselves? Don’t we have to question to learn? Why are questions considered blasphemy? It seems that some people experience attention deficit disorder when exposed to factual criticism of God and the Bible. Why?

 

Feelings are what addictions are made of. In therapy, one’s feelings are challenged. The feelings you refuse to discuss or get angry about are the feelings that control you. Those are the feelings you are addicted to; the very feelings that let you down.

 

Bible debate censors: If you attempt to debate negative Biblical content, these are some of the tactics you will face. Most will attempt to stop you from exposing and debating negative Bible content - while denying it. Many will interrupt and censor you at every turn. Some will preach. Some assume control to get you off topic by recommending other books, myths, philosophers, dogma etc. Others will attempt to stop you with time control, anger, then quit and run. Some will threaten loss of friendship to get you to stop; to give up Biblical facts in favor of their authority over the topic. They will infer that God has the power to do anything. Biblical debate is lost on some. Most do not want for you or others to know Biblical facts. They want you to obey, repent and conform. Thinkers, interested in the facts, will focus on and debate the topic. They ask Biblical questions to satisfy their desire to know. Thinkers, however, do little with Biblical knowledge.

 

 

 

Does A Resurrection Qualify For Salvation? 

 

 

Luke 7:11-15 The widow of Nain’s son rose from the dead.

 

Matthew 9:18-25 Jesus arose an official’s daughter from the dead.

 

Jesus said she was just sleeping. Shall we believe Jesus? If we do believe Jesus, Jesus did not raise the child from the dead.

 

I Kings 17:17-22 Elijah raised a dead child.

 

II Kings 4:32-35 Elisha raised the dead son of a Shunammite from the dead.

 

II Kings 13:21 The bones of Elisha were touched by a dead man who came back to life.

 

Luke 9:28-34 Moses and Elijah came back to life at the transfiguration.

 

I Samuel 28:7-15 King Saul got the Witch of Endor to raise Samuel’s spirit for him.

 

Matthew 27:50-53 Jesus died, the Earth quaked. Tombs opened. The dead saints raised and came forth after the resurrection. The Centurion and the men with him watched over Jesus. They were afraid. Catholic and KJV

 

Resurrection? Webster's: A rising from the dead or coming back to life.

 

Ergo, an obvious Biblical error. By timetable, Jesus had not yet been resurrected. Jesus had not yet been buried. The words after the crucifixion would have been more accurate.

 

John 11:43-44 Lazarus arose from the dead.

 

All of these people rose from the dead before Jesus rose from the dead. If one believes in this Biblically reoccurring phenomenon, just how significant is Jesus’ resurrection? Did Jesus resurrect in His flesh body or His transfigured body?

 

Acts 9:36-41 Peter raised Tabitha from the dead.

 

Acts 20:9-10 Paul raised Eutychus back to the living.

 

Were all who were raised from the dead also Gods, like Jesus? Coming back from the dead is no big deal with this Biblical bunch. Christians, obviously, are afraid of death to the extent they require eternal life. Christian faith and belief is obviously more connected to fantasy and feel-good than with historical and scientific integrity.

  

Ecclesiastes 3:19-21 For the fate of the sons of men and the fate of beasts are the same, as one dies so dies the other. They all have the same breath, and man has no advantage over the beasts; for all is vanity. All go to one place, dust to dust. Who knows whether the spirit of man goes upward and the spirit of the beast goes down to the Earth?

 

Ecclesiastes 9:5 For the living know that they shall die, but the dead know not anything, neither have they any more a reward; for the memory of them is forgotten.

 

It can be comforting to perceive that a moment after one is dead, one remembers nothing.

 

 

Catholic Bible Notes state:

 

Genesis 5:22-24 Enoch never died. He went straight to Heaven.

 

II Kings 2:11 Elijah never died. He went straight to Heaven.

 

Isaiah 26:14 They are dead, they shall not live, they are deceased they shall not rise.

 

I Corinthians 15:13-19 Paul said: If there is no resurrection of the dead, then neither has Christ been raised, then empty too is our preaching; empty too, your faith. Then we are also false witnesses to God, because we testified against God that He raised Christ, whom He did not raise if, in fact, the dead are not raised. For if the dead are not raised, then neither has Christ been raised, and, if Christ has not been raised, your faith is vain. You are still in your sins… If, for this life only, we have hoped in Christ, we are the most pitiful people of all.

 

Alright Paul! Who has said it any better? However, could I Corinthians 15 project the only honest and accurate words Paul ever said?

 

I Corinthians 15:32 Paul said: If the dead are not raised: Let us eat and drink, for tomorrow we die.

 

Well, maybe this one too.

 

Do some tend to feel and project that their needs are so much more important than yours? Do some Christians assume entitlements in the name of Jesus Christ by insisting that their needs should be satisfied even at the sacrifice and the expense of others?

 

John 20:1-8 Mary Magdalene ran to Peter and the other disciple whom Jesus loved and told them Jesus had been taken from the tomb. They both ran. The disciple (whom Jesus loved) ran faster than Peter and arrived at the tomb first. He bent down and saw the burial clothes but did not go in. Then, the disciple (whom Jesus loved) also went in, the one who arrived first at the tomb, and he saw and believed.

 

Tim 6:15-16 It is Jesus only who has immortality.

 

What? Only Jesus has immortality and there is no resurrection nor eternal-life for others? Then, what is all the urgency and sacrifice to get saved for?

 

Outside The New Testament, what history bearing nation has provided a history of Jesus? Josephus, a controversial Jewish writer, could be a source, but could that single source be an after-thought, post-scripted long after the time as many of the Gospels obviously were?

 

John 21:7-12 The disciple, whom Jesus loved, said to Peter: It is The Lord. They saw a charcoal fire with fish and bread on it. Jesus said to them: Bring some of the fish you caught. Let’s have breakfast.

 

One’s learning of a controversial subject can be predictable based on the mood or agenda one goes in with. If you feel depressed, defensive and are having difficulty - stop! Come back to it when you feel investigative, feisty, courageous, intelligent and clear-minded.

 

John 21:15-19 Three times Jesus asked: Simon / Peter, do you love Me more than these? He said: Yes Lord, You know that I love You. Jesus said: When you are old, somebody else will dress you and lead you where you do not want to go. Jesus said this signifying by what kind of death he would glorify God. Follow Me.

 

Is the kind of death you don’t want the kind of death that tends to glorify God? Wasn’t, in fact, Simon / Peter who was crucified upside-down in Rome?

 

John 21:20-22 Peter turned and saw the disciple following whom Jesus loved, the one who had also reclined upon His chest during the supper… Peter asked Jesus: What about him? Jesus said: What if I want him to remain until I come? What concern is it of yours? You follow Me. Catholic

 

Jesus' relationship with "the disciple whom Jesus loved" is suspect and controversial - for those who dare go there. Yes, I dare go there.

 

Some believe in spite of evidence, not because of it. The concept of believing in Jesus has many virtues, but don’t some clergy view legalists as adversaries, sinners?

 

How does one know if or when one has faith? Is “having faith” merely gambling on luck? Can’t luck also be defined as unmerited-gift? Does one assume or pretend faith? Is faith a feeling that one senses? Is it hypnosis? Can one be commanded to love someone, under penalty of consequence or persecution, body and soul? Can you love someone that you have never met, that you have only heard or read about? Doesn’t one have to be insecure or prejudice to hate other human beings? Do you really believe in ghosts? Is it easy for you to passionately love someone who has been long dead? Do you really look forward to “the harvest” knowing that it means the expiration of every human-being alive on Earth? Do you have that little dedication or compassion for survival of humanity?

 

For some this material serves as a hair-trigger for emotional insecurity. Others may find it to be a breath of fresh air. Religion seems to encourage people to invent a personal fantasy world in order to resolve reality-based problems. Dreams often become living nightmares. Is the looking forward to eternity a form of escapism? Is it just another way to avoid the pains of reality? Anesthesia does exist and nobody sane wants to face a surgical procedure without it.

 

II Corinthians 4:3-10 Our gospel is veiled for those perishing. God has blinded the minds of the unbelievers so they might not see the glory of Christ. While we are at home in the body, we are away from God. We try to please Him whether we are home or away. We must all appear before the judgment seat of Christ so each one may receive recompense according to what he did in the body, whether good or evil. Catholic

 

What? Would God sabotage any human-being’s salvation? Why do Christians insist that one either supports God or Satan? Is there’s a third choice? Which one do you fear most?

 

II Corinthians 5:13 For if we are out of our minds, it is for God; for if we are rational, it is for you. Catholic

 

 

Dyslexia is when words get all mixed up in one's head when one is reading. If one does not see this God as a villain of mankind throughout these documented deeds, one may be suffering from dyslexia or maybe just a lack of guts. If one should feel right at home with these Biblical contradictions, one may also be classified as a dangerous Schizophrenic.

 

 

 

Questions about Satan

 

Based on Biblical chapters and verse:

 

1.      What does anyone really know about any Satan?

 

2.      Where does Satan threaten to hurt anyone?

 

3.      Do you have any Biblical evidence that Satan murdered anyone?

 

4.      Does Satan have any commandments that he insists human-beings obey?

 

5.      For what reasons would anyone fear Satan?

 

6.      What is the worst thing that Satan can do to you or me?

 

7.      Do you think Satan really exists?

 

 

The man who has the best documented Biblical research I have found to date is:

klomckin@ameritech.net

 

C. Dennis McKinsey's 2 excellent books are: The Encyclopedia of Biblical Errancy 1995 and Biblical Errancy (A Reference Guide) 2000 - both by Prometheus Books.

 

 

Some argue: The Old Testament doesn’t matter. The New Testament replaced The Old Testament. Some claim, the NT is all that counts.

 

 

 

Peter

(McKinsey)

 

 Peter, who did questionable deeds, was canonized as a saint.

 

Luke 5:8 Peter admitted that he was a sinful man.

 

Matthew 14:31 Peter was rebuked by Jesus for doubting and having so little faith.

 

Matthew 16:22 Peter rebuked Jesus - accused Jesus of lying - of making a false statement.

 

Matthew 16:23 Peter was called Satan by Jesus.

 

Is this not a disqualification for sainthood?

 

Matthew 19:27 Peter wanted to know what was in it for him if he followed Jesus. Catholic

 

John 18:10 Peter cut off the ear of Malts with a sword.

 

Galatians 2:11-12 Peter refused to eat with converted Gentile Christians.

 

Acts 2:36 Peter said: God made Jesus Lord and Christ.

 

What? Jesus was neither Lord or Christ at one time?

 

Matthew 26:70-75 Peter had said he would never desert Jesus. He then denied Jesus 3 times.

 

How could Peter make it to Heaven? Jesus had stated in Matthew 10:33 & Luke 12:9: Whosoever will deny Me before men I will also deny him before My Father in Heaven. KJV

 

Did Peter make the cut in spite of Christ's words? Was Peter good enough? What human being who lives a full life is good enough? Is God's Heaven an empty place. Isn't there war in Heaven?

 

Peter did not believe the resurrection as stated by the women. Luke 24:10-12

 

He publicly accused Ananias and his wife of lying to God. They fell dead of fright. Acts 5:1-10

 

Peter alleged that Lot was righteous: II Peter 2:7-8 although Lot offered his 2 virgin daughters to a mob: Genesis 19:8. Then Lot, himself, had sex with both of his very own virgin daughters: Genesis 19:30-38 and even made them both pregnant with his very own sperm. This scenario of incest is obviously good, righteous and proper to Peter. Some fathers have taken notice.

 

According to some: Peter became “The Rock”, “The 1st Pope”, “The Cornerstone of The Holy Catholic Church.”

 

Some, who question, value knowledge over faith. Most do not question their own beliefs, ergo, they don’t value knowledge over faith. Many value control over content. Some tend to re-invent themselves by blessing (ordaining) themselves into a state of Godliness; thus, they assume power and authority over others. Some set their divine authority over power, logic and reason. Many beliefs are based upon ignorance, superstition, ego and arrogance.

 

 

Paul on Marriage

 

I Corinthians 7 Paul said:

 

It is a good thing for a man not to touch a woman. Because of immorality, every man should have his own wife and every woman her own husband. They should fulfill their duties towards each other. Neither have authority over their own bodies, the other does. Don’t deprive each other except for prayer then come back to each other so Satan doesn’t tempt you through lack of self-control. I wish everyone to be as I am, but each has a gift from God. For the single, it is better to stay single as I do. If you don’t have self-control you should marry. It is better to marry than to be on fire. If you’re married, you should not separate nor divorce. If your spouse is an unbeliever, don’t divorce him or her for he or she becomes holy through you. (How?) By being together, your children will be holy. If the unbeliever separates, let him or her. You are not bound in such cases. (Really?) Live as God has assigned you. Are you bound to a wife? Then, do not seek separation. Are you free for a wife? Then do not look for a wife. (What?) If you marry, you do not sin but you will experience affliction in your earthly life. I would like to spare you from that. Let those having wives act as not having them (Whoa!). I’d like to see you free of anxieties. Unmarried men and virgin women are anxious about how to please God. Married men and women are anxious about how to please each other; taking away and distracting from God.

 

If one thinks he is behaving improperly toward his virgin, and if a critical moment has come and so it has to be, let him do as he wishes. He commits no sin. Catholic

 

Q: WHAT? Isn’t Paul promoting rape, out of wedlock sex and teen pregnancy?

 

Let them get married. The one who marries his virgin does well. The one who does not marry her will do better.

 

Q: Doesn’t she, the lady, have any say in the matter?

 

A wife is bound to her husband as long as she lives. If her husband dies, she is free to re-marry. She is blessed in my opinion if she remains single. I think I have the spirit of God.

 

I Corinthians 11:9 Paul said: Man was not created for woman but woman was made for man.

 

Paul said: Woman is made to serve man. How do you feel about that? Does your wife or girlfriend know? Is Paul’s view of women something women typically claim to be valid in divorce court? Why not? In church, have you heard that wives should be submissive to their husbands? Is what the Bible teaches us mostly in the minds of those who wrote it?

 

Pastor Arnold Murray: We know that God, Himself, is a divorcee because He divorced Israel - and Judah as well, as it is written in Jeremiah 3:8.

 

II Corinthians 11:8 Paul said: I robbed other churches in order to minister to you. KJV

 

What!

 

I Corinthians 11:14 If a man wears long hair, it is a disgrace to him.

 

Paul must had been bald.

 

 

I Corinthians 16:22 If any man love not the Lord Jesus Christ, let him be anathema (cursed). KJV

 

 

Enough of Paul, an admitted thief who wrote about 2/3rds of The New Testament.

Who said: Why do you call Me good. No one is good but God alone?

 

Who said: Who can be saved? For human beings it is impossible?

 

Who said: You do not believe because you are not among My sheep. My sheep hear My voice; I know them and they follow Me. I give them eternal life and they shall never perish. No one can take them out of My hand. Catholic

 

What is God's "Elect"? God and Who both know the "Elect" because They chose Their "Elect" before the Earth was formed. No one can take the "Elect" from Whose hand? The "Elect" have a free ride by "Grace"? Why didn't the Jews believe this? Why am I so skeptical?

 

Who said: I came not to send peace but the sword, man against father, daughter against mother. KJV 

 

Who said: He that has no sword, let him sell his garment and buy one?

 

Who will rule over the house of Jacob, forever?

 

Who said: Whoever loves his mother etc. more than Me is not worthy of Me?

 

Who said: Without hating his mother etc. - he cannot be My disciple?

 

Who said: I have come to set the Earth on fire. How I wish it were already blazing?

 

Would a God who is in control wish?

 

Who said: Children will rise up against their parents and put them to death?

 

Who said to His mother: Woman, how does your concern affect Me?

 

Who said: Whoever believes - serpents and drinking poison will not harm them?

 

Who said: Friend, who appointed Me as your judge?

 

Who said: Sell your belongings and give alms?

Who was at meal in His house?

 

Who said that He was sent only to the lost sheep of the house of Israel?

 

Who said: Tax collectors and prostitutes are entering Heaven before you?

 

Who said: Heaven will pass away?

 

If Heaven passes away, what is all this salvation stuff about?

 

Who said: This generation will not pass away until all these things take place?

 

Who said: Let this cup pass from Me three (3) different times?

 

Who said: My god, My god, why hast Thou forsaken Me?

 

Who died, tombs opened, dead bodies raised and appeared to many?

 

Who cried out: Father, into Thy hands I commend My spirit and breathed His last.

 

Psalm 31:5 Who said: Into Thine hands I commend my spirit. KJV

 

Careful now, as Psalm 31:5 wasn’t Jesus.

 

In reality, doesn’t someone have a better chance to get and hold on to life’s rewards if one earns them. Faith and hope generally indicates that someone wants something that others already have. Can’t faith and hope be potential thieves that assume entitlements to take unmerited gifts they have not earned.

 

 

Some say that everybody reads the Bible differently. If you go into it with love, you see love all through it. If you go into it committed with faith and belief, you will come out committed, having faith and believing. If you go in skeptical, you will probably remain skeptical. With all its hype and fearful stimuli, the Bible is an awesome hypnotic engine.

 

 

I, Gary W. DeVaney, am trying to approach the Bible as would an honest Supreme Court Judge, a big city prosecutor, a CIA intelligence officer, an FBI investigator, a homicide detective, a street cop, a concerned citizen. I choose to support human beings over a God who seems determined to cause them constant suffering and destruction. If you can write a better book concerning this subject, do so. I will be happy to critique its facts.

 

Critic: Every passage you have selected and pointed out is taken out of context.

 

Q: I agree. In what context would you view them to be more legal, moral, or acceptable?

 

Critic: In God’s value system.

 

Q: Do you, like God, also hold that those who don’t agree with you or don’t obey you should also be destroyed or eliminated?

 

Critic: From my world, yes.

 

Critic lawyer: You admit you are paraphrasing. That is always suspect.

 

Response: Check out your Bible and see the accuracy for yourself. It’s chapter and verse.

 

Critic lawyer: I’m a Buddhist. I won’t have a Bible in my house.

 

Some are closed-minded followers who insist that others follow as they do.

 

Life is like a dog-sled and unless you are the lead dog, the view is always the same.
