I applaud your surgical use of logic; and your use of cause and effect valuations. Excellent point. I am asking you now if you might apply your insight into the possibility that some persons can use the Bible as a reference for a broader and perhaps deeper statement of something they are expressing, much as anybody might do on any subject that has published literature, without actually subscribing to the referenced work.
I guess what I am getting to is what is your own appreciation of the Bible when you hold it in your hands?
I have an awareness that you are a point-blank person who likes to express honesty and authenticity. I encourage you to continue your point.
