Do you believe it's inerrant? Do you believe it's based on things that happened, but a lot of it may just be stories and it's not perfect because men wrote it? Do you think it's just a good guide? Do you think you'd find more useful life direction from Goofus and Gallant? Just curious. :)
I think it's based on historical events, there are probably lots of things in the OT that are just parables like Jesus' stories, and that it's surely imperfect considering men wrote, compiled, edited, and translated it. Of course that means evangelicals and atheists both think I'm the worst, but oh well.
