Q: How is Greek mythology different from the bible?
Weren´t they both created by humans? Weren´t they both written by humans? Don´t they both tell incredibly over-thought morals? Aren´t they both explaining to you the world as a “science for dummies” book?

A: The Bible is a prophetic book, predicting many, many years in advance, thousands of events … all of which have (so far) truly come to pass … just as described.

Most of those prophecies describe the earthly life and the historical, divine person-hood of Jesus Christ, the promised Redeemer of all mankind.

Since no other book of any kind has ever been able to accurately predict the future, it’s clear that God is the true author of the Bible … and man merely serves as his scribe.

By comparison, Greek mythology was simply an appealing way for ancient man to try to explain natural events and processes.

At best, Greek mythology is based on the fanciful accounts of ancient, supernatural beings who, though powerful, were not truly god(s).

The Bible likely speaks of these beings here:

Genesis 6:4 Now giants were upon the earth in those days. For after the sons of God went in to the daughters of men, and they brought forth children, these are the mighty men of old, men of renown.

Most of these (Nephilim) were destroyed by Noah’s flood, but others survived, and along with their offspring, caused big problems in later years. Goliath is probably the best known of them all.

In so far as the objective of all sacred scripture (the Bible): The Bible does not explain how the heavens go … but how to go to heaven.

Perhaps that might constitute incredible moral over thought to you … but to me … it’s just common sense.
