>>>>I find it REALLY hard to even BEGIN to believe that God would put the blasphemy part anywhere near the top of the list!!!

That's what gets me so confused.

And God is wise and kind, wouldn't he be able to shrug off and forgive criticism? Even knowing full well the humans he created were not perfect (he created them that way) and possibly misled due to human error.

What kind of God would put a sin against himself above a sin against those he loved? Doesn't a loving person put injuries towards others they love above injuries towards themselves? Like "do what you want with me, just don't hurt those I love"?

>>>>Keep in mind, that it was human beings who wrote the Bible and there are also translations involved. I don't think it's inconcievable that certain things might have come through a bit differently in translation?

I think about that a lot. But then that exempts me from the Bible entirely because how am I to know the rules of life (from the Bible), if what was written or translated (to modern English) is possibly incorrect or misleading from original intention?

None of it makes sense. It never did. I feel liks someone is telling me to believe "2 2 = 5," and if I don't believe it I will be sent to hell.
