Holy Scripture [Jun. 21st, 2011|11:23 am]
Tony Grist
I attended theological college in the 1970s- where I was taught that the old testament is unhistorical, the gospels utterly unreliable, the sayings of Jesus plagiarised  and the whole Bible (though it wasn't put that way) a crazy patchwork of lies and forgeries.  I was then expected to go out and preach from it as if I believed it was the Word of God.

It did my head in. 

When I became a witch I made a virtue out of there being no such thing as a Wiccan scripture.

My problem was always that I believed. From being a child I believed what I was told in Church. Once I was confirmed I felt better for having communion. Then I learn more and discover that I'm not supposed to take the bible literally - it should be on the level of the tooth fairy and father Xmas - except that Father Xmas seems to have some basis in fact. When I left my husband and my vicar refused me communion I accepted his right to do so.

No wonder I turned away from Christianity - if you ask questions the answers are that you're moron, you should realise the difference between the true bits and the other stuff. B***sh*t.
