The Bible is merely a book written by men. The Bible has so many alterations throughout history. The Bible is based on history & the culture of the times. Why do some people really contend that the Bible is a "book of God" when it really isn't? Why do some people construct their lives around the Bible which deals with past history? When will people realize that the Bible deals w/the past in terms of morality & such morality is passe for postmodern times?
The Bible is, in my opinion, an interesting look at humanity and their desires for power and their abuses of it when they have it. It is an invaluable tool in understanding why God cannot be an active presence in this world. And it is a wonderful glimpse of how God would act should be walk within it. It, from beginning to end, shows that no matter how a higher power attempts to communicate humanity will quickly move in the opposite direction of that intent. Seeking perverted power from that association.
Those who use it to bludgeon each other, from either side of the argument, have (in my opinion) missed out on an invaluable lesson as to why we should love one another and stop arguing over God.
Yes Bible is written by men but guided by the holy spirit, it may have many alterations because the bible was not finish just a month, The entire New Testament was written in about 50 years, from AD 44 to 90 or 95. and it is a Book of a God for which it contains the miracles, deeds and promises of God and it serve as a book of wisdom for it contains facts of everything that happens it in the past for which absolutely will happen in the future.

I plan to write a hub about this, because more and more, I see this defense as ridiculously weak, especially for the conservatives who believe in an afterlife.I'm only going to contest one point here: That people are allowed to do evil things because God doesn't want to interfere with their free...

Let's say that Religion and the concept of the existence of God was erased from the Earth. How would humans, institutions, and ultimately, societies, determine "moral law" if you will? How would it be determined what is right or wrong? What would that process look...
