“The law of the Lord is perfect,
refreshing the soul.
The statutes of the Lord are trustworthy,
making wise the simple.
The precepts of the Lord are right,
giving joy to the heart.
The commands of the Lord are radiant,
giving light to the eyes.
The fear of the Lord is pure,
The decrees of the Lord are firm,
and all of them are righteous.
They are more precious than gold,
than much pure gold;
they are sweeter than honey,
than honey from the honeycomb.
By them Your servant is warned;
in keeping them there is great reward.
But who can discern their own errors?
Forgive my hidden faults.
Keep Your servant also from willful sins;
may they not rule over me.
Then I will be blameless,
innocent of great transgression.
May these words of my mouth and this meditation of my heart
be pleasing in Your sight,
Lord, my Rock and my Redeemer.” Psalm 19:7-14

- “While the Bible may be ‘inspired,’ by God, it’s not ‘inerrant’ and parts of it are just myth.”
- “The Bible’s account of Creation is only metaphorical, the six creation days were not ordinary days, and creation really unfolded over millions of years.”
- “Genesis 1 and 2 provide two different accounts of creation.”
- “Adam and Eve were not real people, only allegorical figures in the story of human evolution.”
- “The Bible’s account of Noah’s Flood is just myth and was drawn from writings from the Ancient Near East.”
- “Moses did not actually write the first five books of the Bible.”
- “Dinosaurs died out millions of years ago, did not walk with man, and are not mentioned in the Bible.”
