As a wiccan, i consider the bible as an ancient book of legends and fables, history and moral precepts... WHAT DO YOU THINK, does the bible represents humankind's best understanding of GOd'snature? what is your view and feelings about the bible?

I think it represents an understanding, not necessarily any better than any other one. I know some people who misuse the Bible, and some people who follow it in ways that make them better people. I think Jesus said some pretty cool stuff, though whether he was the son of the Christian God or not really doesn't matter to me, because I don't worship that God. However, I think if you took some of the stuff Jesus said and actually based your life on it, you'd be living a pretty good life. That said, I already have religious precepts that cause me to live a pretty good life, so I don't need the Bible. I have read it, more than once, but always from the viewpoint of an outsider. There are parts of it that are really horrific, and parts of it that are really nice. Oh, happy Solstice by the way!

Hi. I think nature represents humankinds best understanding of gods nature. God is within and surrounding all of us. I believe that the bible is a set other individual belief that happen to coincide with are current understand of the way the world works. I think the world works that way because we made it work that way. Does god work through us or we work through god? The bible just gives some of us the answers so that we don't have to look within ourselves.
