The Bible is...

From “Making the world a better place”:

Readers of the Bible need to be able to recognize when God is depicted in a manner that is a projection of humanity at its worst.

To me the Bible is not a message from God to humans. It is a story of humans trying to understand God (i.e. truth). And themselves.

And it isn’t a story that is finished. Faith isn’t about dogma. It is about starting with the wisdom of our predecessors and then trying to go beyond that.
