I am aware that there may be individuals here who have objections to the contents of the Bible. For instance, some one here may object to the Bible's claim to be the word of God.

Some may object to the Bible's views on homosexuality.

These are just two examples.

In this thread I invite anyone who has an objection to the Bible to tell me what their single biggest objection is and if one particular objection is found to be more prevalent than others, I will attempt to address it.

Please state the objection and why it is your single biggest objection.

It's fiction.

You can't be bothered to watch a single video posted in this very thread.

Why would anyone waste time reposting it here for you, when you won't read it anyway?

Im not watching hours of youtube videos.

If you wanna do the whole video thing I could just post videos in response to videos.

If the Bible is so obviously fiction as some have claimed, and you all are so smart then what I ask should not be seen as unreasonable.

Try some proper English. It's "what I ask should not be seen as *reasonable*."
You go to college at all ? Sorry I insulted Biola with your name in the same sentence.
Stop asking your dishonest questions and START answering some.
Sorry if getting an education is too much for you ("hours of video"), but if an informed discussion is beyond you, and apparently it is, you may as well just STFU.

Most of the books I enjoy are either fiction or only based on true stories but not entirely accurate. I guess my biggest objection to the bible would be its promotion of violence (rape, pillaging, war, murder, sacrificing animals, child abuse etc.)
I definitely don't think it's acceptable reading for children.

Go with the abridged version:

Probably still not appropriate for children, but I'd give it a try. Is that a real book?

My biggest problem with the bible?

I need irrefutable evidence that the bible isn't a work of fiction before I can revere it!

Unfortunately, not even a single person who's ever made the claim that the bible is the word of god has provided me with that irrefutable proof I need to believe the things it says! Undecided No matter how many times they're asked to do so! Dodgy

No more so than your intentional misconstruing of the post on slavery. Dodgy

You're not very good at this. Drinking Beverage

I've never known a book to have hundreds of organizations set-up just to apologize for how bad it is, surely just a half star rating and an Amazon gift card would suffice.

Theism is to believe what other people claim, Atheism is to ask "why should I".
