And that's the problem with Biblical literalism. People are unable to agree on what the Bible says, much less what it means. The Bible isn't a god, or a deity or anything to be worshipped. It is a book, much of it history. To find personal meaning, one must use it with prayer and meditation to help define what it means to YOU. A specific verse could mean something different to you one day from the next. A guide, an inspiration but not a step-by-step procedure manual.
"Struggle is a never ending process. Freedom is never really won, you earn it and win it in every generation."
