Several years ago because there was certain things stated in the Bible which caused me concern, because I believe certain aspects of it seemed to be spill over from previous Bible writings and were very much unrealistic, without going into details of these I spoke to God and said “There are certain entries in the bible which I cannot accept as being right for me, so what can I do about it?.
He replied “Take from the Bible that which is good and right for you and let others take from the Bible that which is good and right for them”.
So the moral to this information from the Divine is this. “Cherry picking, picking and choosing for oneself is in order as long as you do so for yourself only and no body else.” It is the trying to put other people into the same box as yourself which he does not approve of.
And as I sit here at this moment he gives me the symbol of approval for this entry.
