"To me, the message of the Gospel is love one another, look out for the less fortunate, and try to walk gently on the earth. And I love that. I think evangelical Christians tie themselves in ontological knots trying to make the whole Bible jibe, which is simply impossible with a collection of historical texts written over more than a thousand years. To anyone struggling with Christianity, my advice is try to keep your eye on the big picture, not a verse here and there. Love God, if you are so inclined, and one another. Sort out the rest using those principles as a lens."
~Andrew Beaujon, author of Body Piercing Saved My Life
You diligently study the scriptures because you think by them you possess eternal life. These are the scriptures that testify of me, yet you refuse to come to me to have life.
