Any loopholes in holy books?
- Anonymous8 months agoFavourite answer
nope sorry, people who think there are loopholes are those described in:
2 Timothy 4:3 For there will be a period of time when they will not put up with the wholesome teaching, but according to their own desires, they will surround themselves with teachers to have their ears tickled. 4 They will turn away from listening to the truth and give attention to false stories. 5 You, though, keep your senses in all things, endure hardship, do the work of an evangelizer, fully accomplish your ministry.

Yes, in the Koran.
The Koran says that to go to heaven, your good deeds have to outweigh your bad, and you won't know what your real balance is until after you die when it's too late to do anything about it. Even Mo wasn't sure if his good was more than bad. So is there a work-around to this problem, especially for those who are convinced they've been a lot more bad than good? Yes there is.
The Koran also says that if you are martyred fighting for Islam, you get a straight ticket to paradise. (Now you know the incentive behind all those suicide bombers.) That's one reason why the 9-11 hijackers frequented the nudy bar before they went into action (a sin under Islam). It didn't matter how bad they were; they weren't trying to go to heaven that way.

People can always find and excuse for what they do.

It is quite obvious that GOD is open to respectful 'legal discussion' and 'negotiation' or even what we call 'haggling' in business. He wants us to think for ourselves, challenge what we see as superficially limited or unfair, find the hidden 'flexibility' within His Law and legal language and demonstrate personality traits that remind Him of Himself.
The entire 'New Covenant' of Christ sprang from out of extremely clever jurisprudence and flexibility within the original Law. The entire Covenant was revealed to be 'hiding' there all along in the original language. Evil never anticipated that GOD Himself could 'become sin' (2 Corinthians 5:21), for example, creating a dual definition for the base legal term itself, thus creating dual definitions for every associated term of the Law and revealing an entirely New Law and 'alternative' way to judge us called 'grace.'
Christ Alone was worthy to do this by first perfectly obeying every aspect of the original Law according to its definitions, (something else evil never anticipated was possible for a 'human' to do). You could call this the ultimate 'loophole' but its weakness became its greatest strength.
Likewise, what appears to be weakness, fallacy, inaccuracy and contradiction to men as they continue to grapple with divine words and submissions is actually 'loophole room' where GOD wants us to question, challenge and reveal new aspects of His wisdom WHILE we obey and continue to trust their truth and authenticity.
Anyone can abandon GOD. It is the 'easy' path. It is more difficult to trust Him and His words of life, especially when they, or the people demonstrating them, are easy to mock, malign or dismiss.
26"For consider your calling, brethren, that there were not many wise according to the flesh, not many mighty, not many noble; 27but God has chosen the foolish things of the world to shame the wise, and God has chosen the weak things of the world to shame the things which are strong, 28and the base things of the world and the despised God has chosen, the things that are not, so that He may nullify the things that are, 29so that no man may boast before God." (1 Corinthians 1:26-29).

The Bible is to large extent made in society's image, putting words in Jesus' mouth. Case in point is Jesus' justification for divorce: adultery.

you can look for them. you will be condemned when you live by them.
as a general rule:
if you have to ask "is this wrong?" the answer is probably "yes, obviously". that nagging voice of "is this wrong" is called Your Conscience. Your Conscience is your front line communication with God.
