I don't understand people who take the bible literally

Ever since I was old enough to read I've looked at the Bible as being a moral code of sorts. Stories of people who didn't really exist, doing nice things, and sometimes not so nice things, to demonstrate how to be as a person. I never once took it as 'ALL THIS SHIT HAPPENED AND I SHOULD WORSHIP THIS DUDE UP ON THE CLOUDS!'. I just don't get it. We got past the clouds, and God wasn't there, so where is he now? Anyone here a proper, literal bible follower who can maybe explain it to me?

I don't know, I used to be the happy bible loving Christian boy in the choir and dance group for church, but after being away from it for a while I stopped taking things so literally. The book doesn't really say, "the stories contained within are life lessons and are not to be taken literally", and your church will raise you on these stories as if they are unquestionable historical fact.

If you question the bible, you will go to hell, and all that.

Looking at the bible as a guide and life-lesson book. It's good. Outdated, but good.

...but he loves you. All you have to do is never ask why and you'll be blessed! There is nothing He can't do, except anything right. For someone who knows the end game, he sure does fuck up a lot at the beginning, doesn't he?

It's ok he's perfectly content with destroying almost every life on the face of the Earth.

Lovingly.
