As DagothUr and others have said in one fashion or another read the Bible with eyes wide open. If something about it continues to nag you and seems not quite right its because the underscoring themes are psychological threats- as our resident Fundamentalist kindly pointed out: 1Cor.10:12 'take heed lest he fall', 2Peter 3:16+ 'the ignorant and unstable twist to their own destruction'. Lovely isn't it.
So whether a person reads a singular god into the texts or a dualist idea or a triune etc. it all comes down to a philosophy of: 'Love me or else'.
