Societies changed. The ancient society related to the original writing of each small section of the bible is gone. With them went the original intention. What we have now is a discombobulated mess of sacred stories now widely published and liberally edited to meet the needs of each new segment of modern society.

It cannot possibly really make any sense to anyone in whole form. So we have to cherry pick and re-edit every sermon and pamphlet to say what we need.

But if one were to chase each phrase back to original texts do we really believe a Sumerian phrase stuck onto a late Roman phrase edited into Latin in 1238 by s monk who had a limited vocabulary of Greek is the word of any god?
