Let me repeat "Literalism is a fatal disease". This according to a well know member of this forum. Think about this for a minute. If the wages of sin are death then it stands to reason that taking some the words of our Lord as given to us in the Holy Bible seriously is a sinful. Are we to imply that those who make this claim believe that others who dare to take certain some of the words of Scripture literally will not enter into the Fathers house? What about the concept that if some of the Bible is not trustworty or simply unbelievable then the whole rest of the book is suspect? And to complete the thought process, are there only a select few who know which words are in the special do not take literally catagory? If so, who are these people?
