If most of the Bible is written in parables then should the Word be taken literally?


When the dicisples speak of the mustard seeds and moving mountains, we know it is a parable to apply to everyday living. But many times people use the Bible literally to prove their point of view. How should we approach and understand the Bible and be true to the message?
