jeffro, you should know by now i dont pick and choose i believe all the bible.
In that case I'd better not keep you. Surely you have a full day of stonings to take part it. Of course, you didn't actually answer the question either, which was, Do you insist that everyone live by all the rules and social customs of the bronze-age author of this story?
So you believe Adam and Eve were actually real people, and not fictional 'allegorical'? Do you believe all the other stories are literally true?
