Welcome to the new-and-improved KingDavid8.com! I finally have all of the contents from my old site transferred here, so everything should be working properly. Please let me know if you find any "dead links". My pages also have boxes where readers can leave comments and criticisms, so don't be shy.
This website is mostly aimed at providing arguments and evidence for the non-Christian, the Christian who may be struggling with what he or she believes, or those Christians who are interested in reaching out to others.
My opinions may contradict what other Christians believe, but many of my arguments are also based on arguments given by a variety of Christian sources. I especially owe a debt of gratitude to the writings of Glenn Miller, J.P. Holding, Paul Maier, Grant R. Jeffrey, Lee Strobel, and Gerald Schroeder.
Please feel free to borrow ideas or arguments of mine (since many of them were not mine to begin with). I do ask that if you quote from my site directly, to please credit me.
Must A Christian Believe The Genesis Stories Are Literal?
The fact is that many Christians do not believe these stories to be strictly literal. In my opinion, the most important thing is that we get meaning from this story. Jesus frequently spoke in parables, so it's not impossible that the Genesis stories (which are believed to have been given to Moses by God) could be metaphorical as well.
We need to apply these stories to how we live today. If they are true, and someone believes they are not, God can certainly forgive them for it. I would say that somebody who gets meaning from these stories, yet does not take them to be literal, is probably better off than someone who takes them to be literal, but gets no meaning from them.
