Daily Awesome: Ella E. Gibson
I’ve often thought that we could quickly diminish the number of Christians to nearly zero in an instant if one of the criteria of being a professing Christian is to have read the Bible word for word. It’s an awful book. I’ve had the unfortunate experience to have read it twice: the first time seeking the truth in it, the second time to appreciate the wretchedness of it.
Here’s a quote that sums up how backward the values in that book are, an irony considering how revered it is publicly.
Any family which permits such a volume to lie on their parlor-table ought to be ostracized from all respectable society.
