What should the Bible be used for?

Read this interesting article about how the Bible was used to justify slavery and abolitionism.

MY OPINION: The Bible should not be used as a weapon. It should not be used to judge people. It should not be used as the definitive source to try and determine what is right and is wrong. It should not be used to try and foretell the future. In my opinion, anytime people try and use the Bible for this, it leads to more and more negativity.

In my opinion, the Bible should be used for one thing: to grow into a deeper a relationship with God and with God’s creation. My faith has grown so much stronger by changing my view of the Bible as a tool to connect with the divine, rather than a means of judging or answering every question I may have. Thanks be to God!
