I'm sorry... it seems we're having two different discussions here. You're arguing against points that I haven't made and talking about things I'm not talking about. I honestly don't know if you're being deliberately obtuse, have poor reading comprehension, or need serious adjustment to your medication.
I thought we were having two different discussions. One about the OT and the NT and another about God making his presence felt in some lives. Maybe I am confused and we weren't

Then you prefer to read the old testament literally as though God wrote it. I think some protestant fundamentalists also do that.
The Gospels are quite different and proclaim Jesus' Good News.
So, I guess it's the reading comprehension that is the problem, then. Whether it be the Bible or any book, or just a post on a forum, there is no telling what YOU THINK you've been reading, since you are clearly NOT comprehending what is actually printed. You won't understand this either, but it's as if where everyone else sees a dog, you see a cat.

I think people do come away with different understandings from the Bible. There is a lot there to absorb and it is going to have a different effects on different people.

So therefore you must agree with the RC church that people ought not to read the bible.

The pope would rather tell people what the bible means, so that they all get the same "effect", as you say, from it.

It fits well with the agenda of religious folks that discourages thinking--because thinking so often causes people to discard fanciful beliefs.

That is bad for the religion business.

It decreases membership and most importantly--cash donations.

Here is a report of more religious foolishness:

"Kosher diapers’ to allow ultra-Orthodox Jews to change their children’s diapers on Shabbat
 
By: Eva Fett
Until recently, ultra-Orthodox Jews had problems when it came to using diapers for their little children on Shabbat, but now, according to kosherdiapers.com , Haredi Jews can now use diapers on Shabbat in accordance with Jewish law.

“The new ‘Kosher Diaper’ is fastened with Velcro, therefore, it is hailed as an ideal solution to avoid desecrating Shabbat,” the company states on its website.

“The use of diapers on Shabbat and Jewish holidays has always been a cause of grave concern for Jews because opening and closing the adhesive tapes violates Jewish law,” the company also states.

Currently, there is an innovative new development in the world of diapers that eliminates all problems of violating Jewish law. Namely,“Kosher Diapers,” which is secured by Velcro fasteners instead of adhesive tape.

With the Velcro fasteners there is no worries whatsoever. Ultra-Orthodox Jews can now open and close their children’s diapers on Shabbat and Jewish holidays."

---And just why is velcro kosher and adhesive tape is not kosher?--most likely because the adhesive tape manufacturers association has not contributed to the rabbi’s retirement fund while the velcro company has made a big donation.---

But--You said that it might effect people differently.

I read it and I see superstition, an evil angry creator that takes delight in seeing his chosen people murder infants.

An idiot who hands out silly laws such as thou shall stone to death he who works on the his special day of the week.

An inconsistent fool who cannot remember from one of the books that he wrote what he said in the previous book.

A clueless, uneducated scribe who assumes that he flooded the whole earth when it had only a minor diversion of water from one area to a lower area.

I could go on but I think you can now see how individuals reading the bible can be dangerous to religion.

You are under the impression that God wrote the Bible. No wonder that is what you take from it.

I'm catholic and read the bible on occasion. If you would attend Mass everyday one would hear gospels and they come from the bible. Also in our parish there is a bible study ministry. check out your local RC parish for more ministries. You may find sone that interest you.

The bible is instructions to live by. don't you think perhaps God inspired these men to write down all these stories for prosperity. We will understand at the end of our time but not until then. Its a big secret, has to be kept a secret. Don't you think God knows how ingenious his creations are? We are in His likeness. He knew man would analyse His teaching and twist things around to suit their needs.

I do believe that some of the Bible is inspired teachings but I believe some of it is interperted by men of the times in a way they could understand. I believe that most of what is in the Bible happened but maybe not literally.
