(13-01-2016 03:08 PM)jason_delisle Wrote:  Well, the simple answer to your question is this. I am non-denominational because I do not like people telling me what to believe and how I should believe things simply because I was told to do so. Rather than accepting a doctrine blindly I did my own research to discover for myself what I believe to be true. That is probably why I can relate to atheists. The very same approach that most atheists used to reject religion I used to reject a specific denomination. The difference between myself and other denominations such a catholics is this; I do not believe catholics, mormons, JW, ect are going to hell because the do not worship God the same way I do. I also have what some may consider unorthodox views. Yes, I think Mormons can be crazier than a football bat but they claim to believe the gospels so they are fine in my book.

Fair enough, I suppose, but it still appears to be a matter of deciding what to take literally and what to take metaphorically. There are some wacky Catholic beliefs like papal authority and transubstantiation which do have a basis in the gospels if you take those passages literally. I don't now how they manage to do that while taking other parts like Genesis as metaphors and I was raised Catholic as well (they tried anyway, I don't think I ever believed; at least not past age 4 or 5).

It sounds like you've looked at it and concluded that most of it is metaphorical so all the inter-denominational arguments are moot. That's certainly better from my perspective than most believers. The less literally and more figuratively people take it the less harm it seems to cause. I'm curious what criteria you used to decide what parts to retain as true though and how the efficacy of your criteria can be measured against another who concludes that different parts are true.

He needs to increase his nipple size first.
Well that can be fixed with a lot of nipple play.
