I never once said the word Bible, you are assuming things (for shame ). But you are correct I do believe in God that is spoken of in the Bible. God is not a book, that is silly and strange. How can a book control the universe? God is a living breathing, knowing, feeling, and very powerful being. Certainly not a book. I do not find God in organized religion either. I don't care what Catholics, or Baptists, or Methodists, or Muslims, or Islamists say. God is real to me, I do not need them to tell me about God or what to think about him. If all the organized religions changed their opinion of God, it wouldn't change me even slightly. If you rely only on what other people tell you about God then you are in sad shape. Man is all those things you said, and that is why I put no faith in them except the ones that are truely lead by God (and few they are). Embrace what you wish, I do not force my beliefs on anyone, I just state them as I believe them.
