It's not that I can't 'listen' to another persons 'interpretation' of the Bible. The problem is you and anyone else may 'interpret' things any way you like. But don't expect others (me specifically) to buy into it and live my life by it. I spent 12 years of my life (wasted is more appropriate) living according to somebody elses rules because according to thier 'interpretation' of the Bible, they are supposedly 'God's sole channel of communication to mankind on earth.
I won't fall for that BS again. I'd rather live according to my own interpretation of life. Then at least I'll only have myself to blame if I'm wrong. I can live with that.
As for being annointed to serve on the writing committee, Ex-Bethalites can tell you more about that. An incredible hulk is probably is great aid to bible understanding though
Absolutely no offense intended. I just don't believe that the Bible is God's inspired word anymore.
