The information I found proving that the Bible has errors in it is a huge crisis for me because the Christian God was one of my best friends, and now I am not sure if he exists in this universe. I envy my parallel self from parallel hero who lives in the parallel universe where he does exist.
So...you're an atheist in this universe but in that universe you're not?

How does that square with God being omnipotent and omniscient? Omni, Latin prefix meaning "all." As in all universes, all the time.

Also, if God is only real in the universe you made up as a setting for your fantasy story you're telling us God is imaginary then? Do go on!

What I mean is that the parallel universe is his base of operations, the universe where the events in the Bible happened.

And I explained how time traveling aliens read Parallel Hero and caused a split in the timeline, so that there would be a universe which they manipulated to make the events of Parallel Hero come true. So Niam, by writing Parallel Hero is influencing events in the parallel universe.

So, he's a local diety-sort of like Poseidon has jurisdiction over the oceans or even that Irish lasse, Boann, who's the goddess of the river Boyne?

Well he was advised by the time traveling aliens who read Parallel Hero to create the parallel universe so his jurisdiction is over that parallel universe. However it could be possible that Jesus Christ’s sacrifice on the cross in the parallel universe was for the sins of those in both that universe and this one. If so, then I must still obey him and confess my sins of looking at jean pornography images when I had the spiritual crisis.

Hang about, if God comes from your parallel universe and is real there but not here then it's the residents of that universe that have original sin, not this one. They're the ones that would need salvation.

If so, what was Jesus doing here? Was he lost or something?

That’s true. And I am confused about your question about what Jesus was doing here? Since it is the parallel universe where God is real, Jesus Christ, the son part of the Trinity of God must have sacrificed himself on the cross in the parallel universe.

Today at Church, I asked the Priest about the errors in Exodus such as how there could be over 600,000 Israelite men and no Egyptian records of the economic catastrophe if they lost such as large slave population and he said that the Israelite population was smaller and that while the Book of Exodus has errors since it was written centuries after the event, it is still based on a true event and the story is inspired by God.

I guess he made a good point which means that God is therefore real in this universe too. So I must therefore confess for my apostasy and for masturbating, and looking at pornographic images of women’s asses in jeans.

And some gentle lampshading/ignoring of the inconvenient parts and he's back, see? That was easy!

Funny, standard Christian doctrine is that the Bible is completely true. Every single passage is completely true, and none of the events described in it are "metaphorical" - in fact, liberal Christians are often told they aren't real Christians precisely because they believe parts of the Bible are metaphorical! This means if this so-called "priest" is saying that there are errors in the Bible, he is therefore a heretic. You shouldn't be listening to heretics, Jacob.

I don’t think it says on the Catechism of the Catholic Church that the Bible is without error. Besides, Exodus having errors on the number of Israelites is the only way to reconcile the story with archeology and Egyptian history.

Yes, but Catholics aren't True Christians either. (Never mind that the only way for the people who say that also to say that Christianity is the world's most subscribed-to religion is to count Catholics and Orthodox, and they love making the latter claim.)
Quote from: Jordan Duram
It doesn't concern you, Sister, that kind of absolutist view of the universe? Right and wrong determined solely by a single all-knowing, all powerful being whose judgment cannot be questioned and in whose name the most horrendous acts can be sanctioned without appeal?

Quote from: Supreme Court of Canada
Being required by someone else’s religious beliefs to behave contrary to one’s sexual identity is degrading and disrespectful.

Yeah Catholics understand that "heretic" means someone who doesn't agree with my non literal reading of the text!

No because I am a Catholic, not an adherent to the crazy false religion of Scientology.

Lot of similarities though, bad SF author-fair point you're more bad fantasy, wants to start a cult with an eye to world domination.

Tell us again how multiverse traversing wizards are part of Catholic dogma again Jacob.

Well the Bible is full of creatures such as Cheribim, Nephillim, the Witch of Endor, a talking donkey, and the prophet Elijah who raised someone from the dead, so a wizard is similar to the things in the Bible.
