I've been hurt by the Bible thumpers more than you can imagine and like you have often dismissed the Bible. But ya know ... there are a lot of very important and beautiful teaching there ... well like our thread on Galatians where we talk about God's unconditional acceptance of us through Justification. How comforting that is in life and death. Just a thought.
