The Bible isn’t God’s word, it’s translation upon translation of a mix of parables, myths, legends and distorted history written by men over 1000 years ago. The Old Testament is a poorly translated Tanakh and the New Testament’s Gospels are the selected writings of some blokes who weren’t even first generation Christians.
