This leaves so much unanswered, if it is to be taken as the case.
Yes I agree that the approach to the 'thinking' in the Bible from a Christians point of view is actually from a supernatural standpoint. It reverses the worlds understanding of everything. For example; not 'life to death', but 'death to life'. Or,not 'the strongest and most influential are called to serve God', but 'the lowliest and most worthless of all the tribes'. Its not 'seeing is believing', but 'beliving is seeing'. Even the understanding of ourselves has to be altered at the most basic level. We no longer strive to succeed by ourselves according to what we want to achieve, but in Gods strength, and according to his will.
I do not believe there is any inconsistencies in the bible, having studied it for many years myself. Though I do maintain that it is questionable that the Bible is the very word of God due to some significant statements related to what we know outside the Bible and the nature of its collection and canonization from the original sources long ago.
Ive often wondered of the issue weather only certain types of people who follow emotions are drawn exclusivly to this type of thing. But I have found that overall the 'followers' of Christ tend to be by choice,yes, but are very much varied in their personalities and approaches to things that 'drive' them. So No this is not a factor that I can see. I do however say that the single most striking element to an 'active' member of the church (someone who is more than a Sunday Christian, and prays more than just the Lords prayer)is the obvious sense of 'fulfillment' they have-for whatever reason, but it is not obvious in other commited activities that people follow, in the same manner anyway. After all, when I was training to be an Evangelist, I was told by my paster always that ''we don't go by feelings, because feelings come and go, we go by faith''.
And of course what of the historical element- what if its true? Then why would only certain types of people approach it then? As far as I can remember having particularly acute emotional drives wasn't the criteria required for salvation!
