We mostly all know that the Bible uses all forms of literature . allegory included but is not completely . Its not only a reading exercise but a understanding exercise one too . Pick a pun or a sarcastic remark and try to understand it as such . If you dare ,I promise you that the bible will become a living thing .
Maybe you should ask those who say the Bible is mostly Allegorical to give you understanding obvious it is not literal Right?
Check out Romans 3:5 and Psalm 116:11 below. Does the Bible say all men are liars? I believe it does. Revelation 21:8 says all liars are going to "have their part in the lake which burneth with fire and brimstone: which is the second death." The Bible is not well thought-out. That's not really surprising when you consider how it was written. Somehow believers tap dance around every conceivable problem though. Here's another related problem:
The first book which the bible comes from is the Masoretic Text, which comes from the year 900 +-. What happened in 900 years? lol. Tales from generation to generation might alter everything.
Rev 21:8“But for the cowardly and unbelieving and abominable and murderers and immoral persons and sorcerers and idolaters and all liars, their part will be in the lake that burns with fire and brimstone, which is the second death.”
Rev 22:14Blessed are those who wash their robes, so that they may have the right to the tree of life, and may enter by the gates into the city. 15Outside are the dogs and the sorcerers and the immoral persons and the murderers and the idolaters, and everyone who loves and practices lying.
