the MAIN message of the bible

So many fools here want to argue that the bible is about heaven or hell. that could not be farther from the truth. i will not go into my usual rant against 'hell' here. suffice it to say that the bible is NOT a choice between heaven and hell.

it also is NOT really important that you believe EVERY story in the bible literally. the bible is all about metaphor and parable, and specifics are NOT important. if you believe that the bible is an infallible literal history, you are fooling yourself. specific details like how long moses lived or if noah really had an ark just are NOT critical to the bible's message.

these are stories to show us the nature of god and what it is like to follow him. they are not stories for us to argue about literally. if you are all about arguing literal details of the stories of the bible, you have missed the message the bible gives us entirely.

ALL that we have to know is that christ is lord and died so we can live. it is even debatable if we HAVE to believe that. universalism holds that christ died for ALL men whether they accept him or not. that sounds more like MY bible and MY god. that you have to accept christ sounds more like the catholics.

i am NOT arguing against believing in christ, or against the stories of the bible. i am arguing that they are not the most important thing the bible tells us. the MAIN message of the bible is to love each other and love god. if you get that out of it, you are good.

but if you think the bible is about arguing about specifics, you really do not have a clue what god is about.

hey pete,

dude, i gotta tell you. i can't get through one of your whole rants. it is like a woman nagging and i just space out and stop paying attention. reminds me of my marriages. i have the ability to completely shut out ranting ragging, and yet be able to repeat the last sentance spoken if challenged.

i like you pete, and i am sorry that you think you are my daddy. but don't worry, i don't think that and it just goes in one ear and out the other.

but you needn't worry about my soul. me and god are REALLY tight. i bet i am holier than thou
