        Hi Richard Ruquist

        Obeying the commandments will not get you into heaven,
        only believing in Christ's sacrifice for us will do that.


    What kind of a sacrifice is that? "I'm going to do you the biggest favor 
you can
    imagine, but if you don't believe in it, then my favor is worthless and 
makes
    anything good that you have ever done in your life a complete waste of 
time".

    If I were Satan, I would write the Bible exactly as it is, full of horrific
    promises and threats that can be interpreted in many ways. It's pretty much 
like
    dropping candy colored hand grenades onto a school playground. The grenades 
would
    say "if anyone tries to take this away from you, then they deserve whatever 
happens
    to them".

    But I'm curious; as a member of the EVERYTHING-list, don't you believe that 
there's
    a world where the Bible is essentially accurate (modulo direct 
contradictions)?


I don't know about accurate, but there are certainly phenomenological states where the Bible can seem powerfully important, i.e. super-significant - for good or evil.

But those are phenomenological states in this world, and apparently you think the qualifier "seem" means "false" in this world. I'm asking about all those infinitely many other worlds?
