There are many who are dead against the reading of the bible as there are gross hypocracies within the contents.There are also elitist points of view that seem to contradict what the essence of the book is about or any kind of real human harmony.That being said though,I have found many amazing verses and helpful insights within this book over the years.I have found a way to read the book and screen out what I see is contradictory but still see its worth and value in the world.I can see however ,that this book can be interpreted in a way that can cause separateness and elitism within society and the history and facts are there to prove it.
I think it would be good for ones and ones to share how they interpret the book/books of the bible and give their insights as to what are
1.the main distortions created by white people in the books?
2.what verses are especially enlightening/useful and universal?
3.how do we read these books without falling into the same psycological pitfalls that many people fall into when reading this book?
