    This is not true, at least according to the Bible's teachings.

    The great thing about the Bible is that you can interpret it to mean whatever you want it to mean.
    If you could be anything you want, I bet you'd be disappointed--am I right?

    lol. Some people might enjoy that, but it makes it all the more unsettling to me.

    You can even get your daily briefings complete with select bible quotes.

    Especially enjoyable, when god tells one to invade another country.

    show me where I am wrong.

    Romans 1: 18-24
    18. For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, who by their unrighteousness suppress the truth.
    19. For what can be known about God is plain to them, because God has shown it to them.
    20. For his invisible attributes, namely, his eternal power and divine nature, have been clearly perceived, ever since the creation of the world, in the things that have been made. So they are without excuse.
    21. For although they knew God, they did not honor him as God or give thanks to him, but they became futile in their thinking, and their foolish hearts were darkened.
    22. Claiming to be wise, they became fools, 23 and exchanged the glory of the immortal God for images resembling mortal man and birds and animals and creeping things.
    24. Therefore God gave them up in the lusts of their hearts to impurity, to the dishonoring of their bodies among themselves,
    25. because they exchanged the truth about God for a lie and worshiped and served the creature rather than the Creator,who is blessed forever! Amen.

    But, if there is absolute truth than some interpretations will be closer to the truth than others. The only exception might be the portions of the Bible that are pure poetry. But even in the poetry I believe God is trying to communicate certain determinable messages.

    Well, you're quoting the Bible for starters.

    Not to say The Bible is pure BS necessarily, however it's man-written text and just to take it as absolute would be naive.

    You said I was wrong according to the Bible's teachings. It seems quoting the bible would be helpful in determining what the bible's teachings are.
