I want to be a Christian

I think there's morality and wisdom worth following in the Good Book, but do I have to believe snakes can talk? Do I really have to accept that some guy walked on water and turned it into wine? Or that some 900 year old man built a boat with a pair of each species on it?

It's just....quite frankly ridiculous.

    Stop. This religion is actually supernatural. Understand that when undergoing baptism you are making a bond between yourself and the god of the Christians. If you like the ethics, just practice them. Don't call yourself Christian because I sense you don't actually understand what that entails. Be careful of the names you invoke, the gods you worship.

      But I don't find it unbelievable that God exists or created the world. I just think 90% of what's in the Bible aside from obvious life advice is ooga booga campfire stories. A burning bush spoke to a man? C'mon anon...

    Just know that most self-proclaimed Christians are typically more-or-less npc tier, simply repeating patterns. This does not invalidate the underlying truths of Christianity. There is a great deal of wisdom in the bible but most are blind to it because they take it over-literally or they merely adopt the beliefs of their sect without reflecting upon them. Also, there is undeniably a great power behind the name of Jesus Christ. Just know that we are all ultimately on our own paths and people have different levels of understanding. At the same time, don't get prideful and think yourself to have all the answers because protip: you don't.

    I think the snake was satan but it’s kind of interesting because I think animals are more intelligent than we realize like certain birds can talk, solve problems, identify objects by names, etc. sea otters can be taught to do tricks for food, elephants and dolphins will remember people, so when they say that snakes were as intelligent as humans at one point I suppose that’s not outside the realm of possibility some people claim dolphins are as intelligent as humans today it’s just they couldn’t build anything because they don’t have thumbs

    Christians don't believe that snakes can talk, so to be honest, I think your conception of what Christianity is is very "out of whack" as it were.

      This would've gotten you branded a heretic less than a few centuries ago. Just stop it.

        Cite one verse in the Bible where snakes talk.

    Believing the supernatural is the whole point. Jesus did miracles to prove divinity. And miracles continued throughout the ages.

      >If a prophet, or one who foretells by dreams, appears among you and announces to you a sign or wonder, and if the sign or wonder spoken of takes place, and the prophet says, “Let us follow other gods” (gods you have not known) “and let us worship them,” you must not listen to the words of that prophet or dreamer. The Lord your God is testing you to find out whether you love him with all your heart and with all your soul. It is the Lord your God you must follow, and him you must revere. Keep his commands and obey him; serve him and hold fast to him.
      Funny how God says not to trust miracles if they contradict His commandments and yet the very basis of Christianity is believing because of the miracles. This is why Paul says that Christianity is a stumbling block to the israelites. It's simply not true, and no amount of miracles can say otherwise.

          >So since you saw no form of any kind on the day the LORD spoke to you out of the fire at Horeb, be careful that you do not act corruptly and make an idol for yourselves of any form or shape, whether in the likeness of a male or female...
          Yeah, no. Sorry about that! God says to keep the Law forever, Jesus says that you are free from the Law. Don't quote Matthew either, listen to what Paul says. There is a difference between the myth of Jesus and the man who preached about the coming Kingdom of God. I'm going to listen to the word of God and not the words of false prophets.

            Isaiah 55:10-11
            >10 “For as the rain and the snow come down from heaven and do not return there but water the earth, making it bring forth and sprout, giving seed to the sower and bread to the eater,
            >11 so shall my word be that goes out from my mouth; it shall not return to me empty, but it shall accomplish that which I purpose, and shall succeed in the thing for which I sent it.

            The Law fulfilled its purpose
