the Word of God says many wonderful things I love the story of the prodigal son, love the Golden Rule I love the Gospel of Matthew, i was hungry you gave me to eat, was thirsty you gave me to drink nakid you clothef me in prison you visited me sick you cared for me. And charity is the greatest commandment, what is faith to move mountains without love, nothing . that is all very beautiful. but the Bible also has a Man being killed for working on the wrong day of the week. He was picking up sticks on the Sabbath, moses went to God and God told him have him stoned to death. Children were stoned to death for disrespecting their parents . John says unless you eat the flesh and drink the blood of the Son of man you have no life within you. And Christians do not agree on what that means. If Christianity wasn't so divided, and the Word of God seemed more consistent to me, I would rejoice at the scripture verses you have presented to me. As I said in the OP, the Bible contains the greatest wisdom. But in my humble opinion, the Bible also contains some of the greatest absurdities. I need to hear from God not from a book.
