It Doesn't Say That Directly...

In fact, it hardly says anything directly. But the truth of what it says becomes evident as you grind through the mental puzzles and allegories. Don't get me wrong, there are a few direct messages, but most of it can be reckoned to parables, riddles, proverbs, etc.

Even in revelation it says, "and this calls for a mind with wisdom" to discern what this next passage means. The bible is like interpreting poetry.

I gather from many of the sayings and teachings that it is in fact not OK to question the mind of God and hence question the bible. But hey I'm human, I can't help it. Mario was right, our minds were designed to question.
