Spring cleaning adventure

I did some spring cleaning and had to go through tons of boxes in my garage to see if there was anything I still needed or wanted to donate. I found a box of old books and discovered a Bible. Had no idea I even had one to this day. I picked it up, read though a few pages and thought “Wow! This is so boring.”

It is not for the faint of heart that's for sure.

Don't stop reading

You shouldn't allow yourself to be bored. You are only denying yourself an opportunity to learn new things. The Bible opens doors and is a flashlight in the dark. I hope you pick it up again and read it from the beginning to the end. Don't tell anyone about it though, or they'll think that you're some kind of whack-job.

I've ended up reading a few dozen pages of the bible online throughout the years, just out of curiosity, and I can relate - it is quite boring, isn't it?

There actually is something to symbolically encoded meaning and information in certain writings, and over the years I've developed an increasingly keen ability to decipher certain kinds of symbolic information, but with the bible I basically always get a blank in that area. There just doesn't seem to be anything particularly deep, meaningful, charged, precognitive or "spot on" about any of it that I've read - including behind and inbetween the words.

But it's the greatest story ever told!

What's amusing is that the bible can be torn apart with all its wacky contradictions with run of mill internet memes, no deep thought required. I see it all the time.

“Honor thy father and thy mother…”– Exodus 20:12

“If any man come to me, and hate not his father, and mother, and wife, and children, and brethren, and sisters, yea, and his own life also, he cannot be my disciple. ” — Luke 14:26

“This is my covenant, which ye shall keep, between me and you and thy seed after thee; Every man child among you shall be circumcised.” — Genesis 17:10

“…if ye be circumcised, Christ shall profit you nothing.” — Galatians 5:2

There are so many I could post. It’s such a concoction of contradictory nonsense, it's unbelievable to anyone that it could have been written by an omniscient god. One need only be able to laugh when such obvious nonsense is offered as being “divine” truth.

and they very skillfully leave in enough tidbits of truth to bait the hook for us bite and get caught on their line of superstitions. Suggest to the know it all funda-Mental-ists that you read the fine print ie. 1Corinthians13:12 "You all see through as clouded lens." None of you see it all or know it all and anyone who says they do is trying to sell you something or control you. Usually both !

Disappointed

Was expecting radical purging confessions or tidying insights. I guess calling the bible boring is hugely scandalous in certain circles but the punchline of this confession failed me
