    I am far from a Bible expert and am fine with keeping it that way. I cannot argue Biblical aspects, but feel just fine using common sense and human compassion for my guide!

      might increase compassion. Just saying.

      You don't have to believe it, but it is a best seller! LOL.

        It's ridiculous to think that anyone could take it seriously without first having a lobotomy. Reading the bible is what turned me into an atheist. To expect an ancient text, edited and translated countless times to have any truth or relevance in these modern times is the definition of lunacy.

        If you don't believe me, read it again from cover to cover and take notes where it either promotes or glorifies evil actions or just outright contradicts itself.

        I try to read it at least once a decade just to keep it fresh in my mind.
