WHY DOES THIS ONLY HAVE 428 NOTES?!?
723?!? GIVE THIS RHE NOTES IT DESERVES.
Actually, if you’re using the bible to harm others, you are indeed using it right. A great deal of the Bible is practically a manual on how to trap, keep and treat a slave. It says so in very plane language. And if you marry a woman and find she’s not a virgin, you can indeed stone her to death. These are not “metaphors” and these are not “stories” They are dogmatic decrees, not a guide to morality.
The trick is not to use it at all for anything but to learn its impact on literature. Embrace reason and evidence and the desire to learn more. Knowledge is power. The bible: not so much.
