That's the same as saying you make it up as you go, exactly the same thing actually.<quoted text>
Parts of the bible are meant to be interpreted differently. The Bible gives us the guidelines and the spirit teaches us how we are to apply them to our individual lives in a way that is in harmony with the level of spiritual progression we are at. I feel that God is a merciful God, and that he has different expectations for us based on where we are at in our lives. 6968
When something is left to interpretation it is inherently nothing more than fables, and cannot be asserted as fact. You actually degrade your bible more by saying that it needs interpretation, because you are also admitting you chose your particular christian religion just because you liked it, and that the book is not based on fact but it is nothing more than a means to an end.
