I too found your post interesting. You mentioned that you read the Bible so evidently you recognize that it has some value.
I’m interested in hearing what the “standard” is that you use to distinguish truth from error. How are you able to discern what parts of the Bible are true and what parts are not. How do you know a “shining nugget” from fools gold, or how do you know that inside some of that “rubble” there is not a precoius truth to be found.
