Well, you did it, you read the entire Old Testament! This is no small feat. Only a small percentage of Christians have done what you just did. In fact, here’s a post from an theist blog:
What percent of "Christians" do you think have read the entire Bible?
I will remember at the first meeting of a atheists & agnostics club at the university I went to, we were introducing ourselves and we were supposed to tell the story of becoming skeptics and this one guy said. "I was a good Christian until I finally got around to reading the Bible." Everyone laughed because we knew how true that was. I have read the Bible cover to cover five times and bits and pieces of it constantly. I love being able to quote more scripture than the fundies.
I seriously think that if every "Christian" had to read the entire Bible for themselves, about half of them would lose their faith.
This is NOT a Christian bashing thread. There are many, many Christians who I respect and have a deep, philosophical understanding of the ancient scrolls. My real beef is with the Sunday School Christians and the Pick & Choose scriptures of the Fundies.
Well Bible reader...what do you have to say? Is your faith intact?
