GUEST,Musket evolving slowly BS: Religion, which is the best one? (320* d) RE: BS: Religion, which is the best one? 06 Oct 13

So. ... let's get this straight. Everybody to interpret the Bible to their own view and use that as their moral compass.

Ok pete. I genuinely support that notion. Or at least I support the right of Christians to pick and choose, especially the bit about putting the directives of a person below the directives of the Jesus hypothesis.

But a couple of things spring to mind. Can you therefore be a Christian if you cannot read?   Can a child be considered a Christian before being able to make informed decisions after all? (My beef in general. )

When you consider that the only reason Christianity survived through the middle ages was that the Bible was written in a language only the clergy could read and successive kings used religion to prop up their claim to be the rightful ruler, it seems to me that pete is actually ahead of the game.

Evolving even?

Just a thought.
