I think studying the King James Bible, and the Jacobean flavored translations of the Apocrypha and Pseudipigrapha, whether you believe in them or not, is an essential part of being a culturally rooted English speaker. I used to belong to an Organization that advocated reading a chapter a day, but had no actual faith requirement to be a member. 20c a week and read the KJV a Chapter a Day, no lifestyle requirement, no doctrinal litmus test. This was purportedly what the angel told the brother that founded this organization to do.
I have been going through a crisis of faith, and I watched Penn saying that reading the Bible, Torah, or Quran will make you an atheist. And as I see it, that's okay, as long as it makes you ethically conscious. If it makes you ethically and spiritually conscious and culturally rooted then it has done its job. The New Testament teaches that the Torah was a schoolmaster, but that now that we are alumni, we need no schoolmaster.
I don't want to fellowship with believers as much as I want to fellowship with serious Bible students.
I now believe that the Bible is like Yoga. You don't have to believe in it, but you have to practice it. Faith without works is dead, and Praxy always trumps Doxy in real life.
I feel like putting on a stupid suit, or at least a dressy Guayabera for the summer heat, and going from house to house to spread that message, so that I can fellowship with people who care about truth with no definite article or capital T, because I believe in that with as much conviction as much as any brain dead dub.
