Discussion for Job 41:21

  • I dont think this is a expression. How do you explain alot of the other happenings in the Bible, how do you know what is to be taken as expression or actual. I think a lot more in the Bible should be taken literally.

    This is how alot of confusion is created among Gods people about what is actual and whats not.

    This is pointing to evidence of a fire braething dinosaurs.
