Not all, the fundamentalists are more literal thinkers. Most of the Christians are Catholic in the world. Catholics, Anglicans, United Church,
presbyterian teachings are metaphorical and abstract, though there certainly are many literal thinkers attending. They are not required to take
manuscripts that are questionable in origin, and even in the footnotes of the bible depicted as an epic story or fiction with a theme. Its the theme
of the story we're supposed to buy. And certain credo's the Church's hand pick.
I am an ex Catholic, then Anglican and now a Quantum Physics Christian who is has finally rediscovered more Yeshua in a true way. But its metaphor,
and a message of unconditional love, peace, non retaliation, forgiveness and lending a helping hand. While in the Catholic Church, I disagreed with
the priest, wouldn't receive first communion as a teenager until he agreed he couldnt prove there was anyone in hell forever, for I told him outright,
everyone is going to make it in the end, I knew no Loving Adult sent their children to dangerous schools. And also, read ever book in their little
library I could lay my hands on and all the deep theological arguments where Catholics and Protestants differed, and knew that what they were
expecting of me was this:
To take a fictional document found, and believe in the author's theme. I realized in the end, I didn't have to. I could disagree. But we were
expected to believe certain credo's. I don't sorry believe all of those from any church.
