The Bible by Kellatrix The Bible by Kellatrix
My opinion on the Bible.

I read it, yeah. And I enjoyed it. Mostly the Old Testament. But I don't believe that everything in it is the way I should live my life. Maybe some of that stuff really happened (I like to believe in Joseph and his dream-interpreting. That's one of my favorite stories of all time <3).

But I don't believe that the Bible is the only truth, especially considering that it's been translated so many times that we have no idea whether what's in there is what was originally written.

I'm an open-minded Helenist, and most of what I believe is now just seen as myth. That's kind of how I feel about the Bible.

That being said, any FLAMES, or BIGOTED COMMENTS about how I'm wrong/need to be saved/stupid/blahblahblah will result in comments being turned off. I don't want any of that. :P

Can relate, and yes. Joseph's story has to be one of the best. EVER.
Catholicism is what I've learned through the years, yet.. I'm not such a follower of the Bible's rules either, since we all know they weren't the best model for humanity. Especially on the Middle Age.

Amen.

This is great! I haven't read all the Bible, but from what I have read, I could go with this, though I really dislike the doctrine of vicarious atonement.

And you're a Helenist? That. Is. So. Cool. Could you tell me more? Pleeeease?
...Sorry, I study theology and I get really nerdy when I come across something about religion that i find interesting. But I would love to know more, seriously.

Yesssss. I agree with this so much.

Completely unrelated, but my friend got a bible for free at our school. She gave hers to her dog, and is burning the rest of them with her friends. I'm annoyed.

YES! Exactly! Good story, not good rules. Someone should make a bumper sticker that says that.

I'm Christian myself, but I'm the same way. I don't think it all happened, but since they do say some of the stories are parables, then of course. But anyways, nice stamp. P.S., awesome Sherlock Holmes fanart! :D

Oh, wow. That's pretty rare to see someone, who is not a Christian, actually likes the Bible. :aww: I, too, like the Bible and really enjoy it a lot. :D

I've noticed this quite a bit, how many non-Christians like to "bash", if you will, the religion itself without actually reading the Bible! If they actually read it and actually though about it, they would soon realise that there is an even deeper meaning to it all. :)
I also once read how alcohol is allowed to cheer you up! :XD:
Well done on the stamp by the way! Nice and neat animtation with readable font and straight to the point. I like. :)
