I am seeking to find my way again with the Lord but I am having trouble. I don't believe many of the things traditional churches (I was raised Baptist, so I am basing this off of what I know from there) teach.
For instance, I believe the bible is an example of how you should live, not a literal word from God. There are too many direct contradictions in the bible to be straight from God. Too many men have had their hands in it for it not to have been altered or mis-interpreted.
I also don't believe God hates gay people, or would show them hatred as I heard preached this weekend (won't be going back to THAT church!). Is there a Christian based denomination that doesn't preach bias towards others, doesn't take the bible to be 100% literal, and teaches TRUE love and tolerance of everyone? (No, I am not gay, but I feel strong about giving everyone equal opportunities to live and love, no matter who they choose.)

I disagree....Hate is a human emotion....God is above the emotions of Humans.
I would think one would want to give him more credit then that.
