Response to Really ...
that the Bible has, or had anything to do with people messing up their lives, or the lives of others. The consequences of not loving and caring, either for one self, or others, generally is chaos of some degree.
There are messages in the bible, but they too are often open to good and bad interpretations. People take what they want, the way they want and when they want it. Obviously, no one else can possibly do the same, or as well.
The old testament which allegedly holds the history and culture of Jewish people is no doubt bloody and ugly. Things really haven't changed much as today their nation is built upon the same butchery as the old testament.
Even the new testament is filled with hate, murder and prophecys of doom and destruction. Most people miss entirely the basic Christ message of reciproscity.
Actually TBT. I think you make good sense.
