I think some people are missing the point. The Bible is really no different than a statue. It is not the Word itself, it is representative of the Word. It tells people what to follow and how to believe, but the Bible itself is a bunch of dead tree and ink. There's really nothing special about it. What is special is the belief you hold because of the story it tells.

Good question. I think we forget about our relationship with God and take the Bible entirely too literal. God is everywhere and not in the Bible. Read it but don't take it verbatim.

In fact you should read Psalm 119 to see just how much you should love the Word of God!!!
Moses said, "These instructions are not mere words--they are your life!" Deut. 32:47. Jesus said, "It is written, 'Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that proceeds from the mouth of God.' " Matthew 4:4.
