    I mean taught in the pedagogical sense not in the prescriptive sense.
    eg If a teacher tells you that F=ma that isn't really teaching is it?
    Only when they show, deduce or explain does it become teaching.

    What is taught in the bible if anything?

    As with anything in life, the Bible will only teach those who are willing to learn. If you don't want to learn, or if it goes against what you believe to be true, then you will not learn from it.

    As the Zen people like to say, it is impossible to fill a cup that is already full.

    So you think your point of view is the only correct point of view? Or should I say points of view that are similar to yours are the only correct points of view?

    Typical liberal position. Pretty self righteous lot you are.

    Am I demanding others to discuss with me by my terms? Did I start this thread.

    When you understand what I just wrote, you can post an apoligy. Until then you can remain clueless.

    I hope you are feeling better.

    Well, seeing as you were first to call me a 'leftist', I guess the apology and cluelessness is in your court, hey?

    Pedagogically speaking, the Bible (Word of God) teaches that you and I are separated from our maker by sin. It's probably the first thing one should realize before being able to move forward.

    It's simple. Sin is that thing in us that says "no God". Acknowledge God by agreeing with Him about what you already know is true about your condition.

    Want an epiphany of understanding? Want the fix for the thing that's killing you? Believe God. Be crucified with Christ. Live forever.

    Leftist is a matter of perspective. From what I've seen of your posts, you are a leftist from where I am sitting.
