The Bible

by Anonymous

As a piece of entertaining literature, this would fail miserably. It can be dull, dry, and sometimes quite painful to get through sometimes, and not everyone can deal with that (though one must consider this only a translation of a VERY old piece of literature- about 2000 years old!- so lieniency in this regard seems reasonable).

However, if you look to this book as a source of intellectual and spiritual stimulation, you'll be pleased. The Old Testament is basically a history of the mistakes of man and how God is continually trying to set us straight. The New Testament is an a thought provoking look at an absolutely wonderful man as he came down to Earth in order to save us from ourselves, and the response to that by civilization as a whole.

Some people may find some of the points in both parts of the Bible oddly phrased or just seemingly untrue, but if you do the research following this (in libraries as well as the internet), you'll find the statements to be 100 % true. For example: in exodus, God scorches the top of a mountain in a blaze of fire. This may seem unbelievable to some, but photos and videos of a mountain that has ACTUALLY been scorched has been recovered.

With all that being said, not everyone will likely view the Bible I do. In fact, as I am clearly biased in my thinking, many people will probably get upset with me for this post and probably post long and angry responses. And both of those are fine; I'm not here to try to change your mind about your view on religion and christianity. However, I AM asking that if you read this book, please do it with an open mind and open heart. And if you disagree with something in it, don't automatically decide it to be a lie- Do the research to prove or disprove the passage for yourself.
