Newly ordained and dedicated interpreting the Bible without preconceived notions of it's perfection. Let's face it, the Bible really is a mess. Stuff just doesn't make sense. One part contradicts another part. If you believe the Bible is the literal and perfect word of God, I have a bridge to sell you.
So here's my message: reading the Bible should be fun! There's hilarious stuff in there. And along the way you will also find some great wisdom. Let's not be a Serious Sam -- lighten up, hang loose, and let the Bible entertain you.
Look, I don't pretend to be a great prophet or holy man. But I'm sick and tired of other people telling me they know best what the Bible says. These people spend their lives trying to make sense out of a book that can be best described as a loose assemblage of crazy talk, fairy tales, and logically inconsistent rules.
Open the Bible without any preconceived notions and you will immediately be struck by stuff that just doesn't make sense. Take for instance when Adam is hiding from God in the Garden of Eden. How could anyone hide from God if God is omnipresent and omniscient? It's a logical impossibility! Yes, there is wisdom in the Bible, but you don't need the take the entire thing as literal truth to see it.
