The scriptures in its entirety was not meant to be religious, but was meant to teach all men adopted into the faith of Abraham the laws and statutes of Yahweh Elohiym (baruch be He) given to man, and the traditions, stories, practices and history of His people. When Luther had his version, and the popes following Linus and Clement, then people like Tyndale, and King Henry VIII and King James and Joseph T Smith and Charles Taze Russell, the 'Bible' became a religious book.The error they make is using the bible, a religious book to attack the Christian. Which is so futile because is not a book that make the follower, is knowing, walking and getting close to God spiritually.
The book is just a guideline, and although poor translations from Jerome and others, and many dubious men caused the present day bible to be error filled, the Bible is meant to be a guideline with the will of the Most High One for all mankind still shining through its mistranslated, retranslated and translated copies of copies of several copies of the first discovered copies of the book. Ha Satan (the devil) is a wile and hungry wolf, who has basically perfected his craft over centuries upon centuries of how to deceive man, man who already prefers to be lazy and not study and also man who prefers to accept what pastor or church tells them.
In other words and sadly, most people who are for or against religion, are usually lazy zealots unwilling to learn and who believe they are well informed, but are the ones who cause a whole bunch of problems for the rest of us. Harsh but true.
