Should the Bible be taken literally, or metaphorically?


I would like it for one option or the other to be chosen, rather than both. The reason being is that usually when both are chosen, the literal parts are the good and the metaphorical ones are the bad. I would like to avoid contradictions and cherry picking as much as possible. Also, if you believe the NT nullifies the OT, can you point out where that is actually stated?

    I personally find the flood to be the most interesting in regards to lacking logic, partly because Noah's family was also the only ones on earth supposedly afterwards.

    Why would the NT change my life but not the OT?

    And if the NT doesn't actually nullify the OT, i would find it difficult to take what good is in the NT over the bad that is probably in both.

    Seems that would have been the better question indeed.
