i have germen mein kampf i still need to read
1 week is not nearly enough to read and digest the whole bible and form any meaningful opinion on it
Go read Gospel of Mark
It's a bit less cringe that everything else
ecclesiastes is by far the best book
the bible has some good stuff in it but it is majority boring nonsense
try to listen and read the Quran, whether u understand it or not somehow if u want to find the REAL TRUTH u become PEACE and HAPPY like me ^^
Cool, even if you are atheist, the Bible defined our civilization so I guess it is important to read it to understand how
Just know that you are going to read a book which we have no way of checking it's credibility so people may have added verses or removed some or added entire stories unlike the Quran which we have certainty of it being the same from the time of Muhammad peace be upon him
PS: We Muslims believe in Jesus (not as a god) and Moses and all the prophets, peace be upon them, but we believe that their messages have been distorted with time
bible has some good stories, stuff about old nations going to war and stuff, other chapters are more boring
you have to try and understand the meaning of the bible back then, not now.
now being religious is almost like a hobby
actually the bible as far as i know is a book that require a lot of interpretation, maybe you can make out a new religion or smth
Nice, skip the boring bits like the genealogies. Any book recs?
Have in mind that the Bible is a collection of books, not a singular one. The texts are so dense, so you should try to grasp the historical context and the reality of the author's life that gave birth to it.
Also, our world is built on the foundations that are implied in the Bible, so be aware of the social, political, philosophical, psychological significance they have on ourselves and our institutions.
Don't read it like it's stupid nonsense, try to exercise suspension of disbelief. Don't underestimate the word.
Okay then, I'll read Quran and share my... Nah jk I have no time for that.
I'm glad you're deciding to give it a try. I personally suggest that you start with the gospels (Matthew Mark Luke John), but read from where ever you want. Hope you learn a lot.
I stopped reading at Genesis bro. It's impossible to like god after that
Good luck bro, enjoy it. Let me know what you think of it
bible always feels weird when reading, prolly cos it was translated into all languages very long time ago and hasn't been properly updated. at least im judging by russian and english versions
Good luck, don't try to understand everything at once. Give your feedback once you're done and PM me
