We often have debates on this site about what was written in the Bible and why. There are also debates about which Bible is better . Then there's the debate about if the Quran is really the better book or more accurate. But I think what people are missing is why a book or even any writings?
Through mankinds history only a very small percentage of humans could ever read. In the first century when Jesus was supposedly alive less then 1% of the population could read. So with that being said why would a god put his ideas and his expectations in a book? If where to be free to worship not slaves of men like a part of the Bible says then again why put it down in writing.
By putting gods words in writing does it not allow for men who can read to monipulate those that can not? So again why would god put his thoughts and wishes in a book?
