I like your analogy, lets stick with it. God is our father we are his children. He is teaching us that there are consequences for our actions and we are will be held solely responsible for the things we do on this earth. It’s a good lesson, a lesson any good father would teach his child.
Ok so let me get this right. You believe some all powerful being in space is your father and it's ok for him to murder people in cold blood because "it's a good lesson." (and I'm supposedly on drugs riiiight.)
No, the bible is a record of God. We can find universal truths throughout the Bible, the bible and its stories speak to the human condition, because it speaks of mans weaknesses, pride, desires, lust and these things are timeless because it’s apart of being human. Faith is our belief that we are children of God and that the bible is his true record. Anyone can see the universal truths in the bible, not just people of faith.
There are NO universal truths in the bible. Yes some of the stories in the bible speak to the human condition that's why it's so popular. If you believe that the bible is a true record than you have a problem with reality. Not to say "some" of the events aren't true but the type of reasoning you would have to go through to get to the point where you call the whole book true can't be identified by any term other than brainwashing.
