There are 7427 blatant absurdities in the bible. Among them:
When you allow preachers, crooks, pastors, thieves, priests, conmen, evangelists, to select a biblical passage, read that passage to you, explain that passage to you in their words, tell you how to react to that passage, you are in fact accepting their dictate that you are not only willing to be a slave to their assumed superiority, but that you are too stupid to read and understand a biblical passage on your own, in your own language.
You need them to do so for you, and you are willing to accept whatever they tell you. That’s not faith, but the best example of voluntary ignorance.
