And what point am I missing?....
I don't think I missed that.That most of the stories in the Bible can be read and appreciated like any other ancient stories. Historical fiction, poetry, fables, collection of sayings, love stories, drama, scifi, allegory, morality tales, fantasy, monsters, biographies, children's stories, philosophy, etc. It is a small library, limited and biased as any.
No. I've enjoyed a few.Do you dislike all books ?
But not the bible. It isn't interesting to me at all as literature. I don't know what you are calling sci-fi. The monsters suck. The love stories are pretty weak, too. The fiction is terrible. The moral values are inadequate. There are no quotable sayings there for me.
What is the philosophy? Submit? Believe?
I still don't see what point I'm missing. If the book is what you say it is, it has nothing to offer me. I don't need it for any of that.
