There is no such thing as a perfect translation so there are bound to errors in this regard. But beyond that the Bible is chock full of hyperbole, metaphors, poetry, parables and morality tales which probably should not be taken literally. True, there are Biblical literalists or fundamentalists who would disagree with me but fortunately, it is not necessary to a literalist to be a Christian. There are also many cases in which the Old Testament and New Testament disagree. This is not necessarily because of any error but because of new covenants God has made with His people. Most “errors” in the Bible may therefore merely be difficulties with interpretation.
Our inner life is what makes us human and, to me, it’s even more important for the way we live now. We’re constantly assaulted by all kinds of things—cell phones, televisions, ads, cars, news of war, the bad economy, shootings. It's endless. Can you imagine just continuously reacting to these things? You lose your soul.
