Biblically Speaking

Believe it or not, I've been reading the Bible. I've found some interesting stuff, but mostly I've found what I expected. It is chock-full of first-instances of literary references, but I'm of the opinion that the subsequent uses are more meaningful than their sources, in most cases.

I've been meaning to read the Bible ever since a friend suggested to me that I could not understand English literature without doing so. He was wrong, but there was a lot that took extra time to understand.

I haven't become Baptist, though. Nor Catholic. Nor have I concluded that the Bible is anything more than wishful interpretations of stories that are based on fear.

I think I'm a heathen. Oh, no! Now what do I do?

Nah, not a heathen. Merely a kafir - Arabic for unbeliever.
