|My religion does NOT teach that woman was literally made from a rib, etc. Those of us who study this understand that the Bible is full of metaphor, parable and analogy. Much of it is NOT to be taken literally as you seem to think.|
Not to derail the thread, but this is a fascinating claim.
First, I have some people that you need to meet. Perhaps you can explain this concept to them. Or they can convince you that you aren't a true Christian because you don't believe that the magic book is true.
Second, which parts are literal, which parts are metaphorical... and how do you know?
Ignored by those who can't provide evidence for their claims.
