So what you are saying (in an emotional state I might add) is that, "I don't like the rule book, so let's throw it out." Tell us, how then do you define your standard of truth, and from what source did it originate? Take your time in answering, because frankly you just opened up your own pandora's box.

YOU SURELY CAN IDOLIZE GOD AND HIS WORD ONLY HELP TO GET TO KNOW HIM, THAT'S ALL.

Yet they're still flawed. You said it yourself. God did not write the book. We know this because scholars only have copies of the original manuscripts of the bible. And isn't it just too much of a coincidence that there are many tenants in the bible that reflect the culture in which it was written? I think that shows that men, divinely inspired or not, wrote these pages and taking them as written by God is nothing short of idolatry. You can't worship words over a deity. That defeats the point.

Flawed hands wrote what the perfect Spirit of God moved them to write.

God is the Author, men, merely His pencil.

Try again.

No, that's not what I'm saying. Whether or not someone likes the rule book is not material to my point. My point is the rule book is written by the flawed hands of man and should be treated as such. The standard of truth should not be dependent on such texts because they were written by flawed men from a much more primitive time. Truth is based on reason and just because something is written in certain holy texts doesn't make it truth.
