So what’s wrong with believing that the Bible is literally the Word of God?
Or are you referring to the tired old canard that some people insist that the Bible be read so that everything be interpreted as literal, with no recognition of poetry, parable, analogy, metaphor, etc.
The only ones who claim that anyone has to read the Bible as being meant completely literal are the evos who look only to mock, ridicule , and disparage. Sad that the only way evos can win in their attempts at character assassination of creationists is to lie about them.
Whenever I ask for someone to provide examples to back up their contention that the entire Bible be read and interpreted in a completely literal manner, they never provide it. They simply create a strawman and try to knock that down instead.
So, please, provide an example of any religious group that demands that the entire Bible read read and interpreted in a completely literal manner with no recognition of any of the other literary devices that Scripture incorporates.
