    It is full of interest. It has noble poetry in it; and some clever fables; and some blood-drenched history; and some good morals; and a wealth of obscenity; and upwards of a thousand lies.

    The two Testaments are interesting, each in its own way. The Old one gives us a picture of these people's Deity as he was before he got religion, the other one gives us a picture of him as he appeared afterward.
    - Mark Twain

    When one reads Bibles, one is less surprised at what the Deity knows than at what He doesn't know.

    YYWSYF - "If you read the Bible without instruction, what would you think?"

    That - simply as a baseline comparison - "mainstream" Christianity has probably done a better job interpreting it than the WTS.

    Not that that's saying much. :smirk:
