Now as far as it being unfamiliar..........I have a 34 yr old step-daughter who claims she was born a lesbian and my wife and I are very familiar with it. We still know how wrong it is.
I assume the bible you are refferencing is the standard King James?May we examine it for a moment?
47 separate scholars involved in a translation taking about 8 years.
Entire books removed(yes,I have read the Apocrypha and other books,have copies).
Added entries to further James's political ambitions(folks were still slaughtering each other in England over Protestant v. Catholic,still are now)
One of the folks that us firearms enthusiasts like to quote is Thomas Jefferson.Everybody seems to know his views on guns,not many seem to go deeper.Jefferson took a bible and cut all the teachings of Jesus out and pasted them in a book for his son,even had it printed as a regular book.The Jefferson Bible is available online,and to view the teachings of Jesus without the superstitions attached is amazing.To borrow from Jefferson,"a sublime moral code".Folks that follow Jesus might want to view it sometime.And remember the difference between the Old Testement and the New Covenat.
