Now, when you ask a silly question about the bible, you are only told it is a metaphor and nothing else. Did they change their mind about the bible? Is it because they see science is proving some of the stories wrong?

Thank you for reading and replying.




PS: Sorry for my poor English, I'm doing the best i can.
PPS: That 666 in my nickname doesn't mean anything.
due to something called literal christians coming about who beleived every aspect of scripture and that what was WRITTEN in the bible was infallible instead of them interperting it for themselves

Well, it's said to have been written by God through men.

Not trying to bash anyones beliefs but there are some people that kill that believe god told them to do it.

Just because you have a "vision" or are told to do something does not = god.

It's not just about someone having a vision writing stuff down. People wrote the Gospels to record Jesus' life because they knew that a guy who can heal the sick and resurrect Himself probably has some authority behind what He's saying.

I wouldn't say impossible. like the Quran, the Bible may be difficult to some, but not to others, and the more you get to know it, the easier it becomes.
