Whatever soothes your sensibilities Thomas. I could say the same about you. Just depends on your perspective. I accept there are many MANY ways to interpret the bible. I don't exclude or invalidate any of them. If that makes me myopic or narrow minded or whatever, so be it. Yeah, I'll "dig in" on that position and be proud of it. Aside from that, I really don't care HOW the interpretation was arrived at anymore than I care how my mechanic fixes my car. While I may find the "how" interesting at times and recognize that one way might be faster than another, it just doesn't matter. So, what am I fighting about? You're the one that has made the "how" into an argument. Not me.

"Interpretation" is OPINION. I don't debate opinion. I've explained WHY, I think ALL christians cherry-pick. You have a differing opinion? Okay. Enjoy.
