During the time the supposed author supposedly lived, the teachings were interpreted literally.

If the Christian admits that the Bible is metaphorical, it can only be interpreted subjectively and they are a fool. If the Christian individual claims it is objective, they are a fool. Christians have formulated their own shit sandwich of illogic.

They're not part of the masses - they're far to erudite to take such a simplistic view of the Bible Big Grin Confused. More seriously, the Christian apologist can point out that there have always been different views of Genesis 1 & 2 in both Jewish and Christian culture. It's not clear that the 'literal/historical' interpretation is the correct one to use.

Then they are fools for worshiping the Bible.

Occasional TTA returner then leaverer.
