Default Re: How can We take the Bible seriously?

I'm not highly religious but I respect those who are. To me, the Bible is too contradicting and Revelations is essentially a self-serving prophecy where if enough people believe it'll hasppen, then it will. I see Jesus more as an archtype than a real person. If he was such a great healer, then why didn't people paint pictures and write about him while he was supposedly alive?

My biggest question to Christians is this: Why did the Crusades kill so many people and how does your God justify it?

The Roman Catholic Church is arguably the richest organization in the world. They have enough net worth to feed, cloth and shelter every person on this planet.

My question to people who are Catholic is this: Why don't they practice what they preach and help the poor and the hungry?
