Kunst’s posts are compelling, though her arguments are hardly new. Kunst did remind me anew of the absurdity of treating the Bible as a rulebook for living. The Bible can be the source of useful insights, but its messages are often Delphic. This inspired my latest aphorism, which I have added to my page of aphorisms on my Web site. No doubt, some will find this offensive, but there is more than a grain of truth here:
If God had wanted to give us clear instructions for living, he wouldn’t have given us the Bible.
