The Bible: So Misunderstood It’s a Sin

Newsweek recently ran an article entitled “The Bible:  So Misunderstood It’s a Sin” which looked at how mistranslated their Bible is; how the story of Jesus was added to and revised by scribes, emperors, and committees hundreds of years after the supposed events took place; and how disagreements on the “Holy Word” lead to bloodshed. Needless to say, the article upset many American Christians. I guess the truth really does hurt.

As Satanists, we understand that the Bible is mythology and is no more truth than the stories of Zeus, Odin, Amon-Ra, or even Satan. We don’t need such Bronze Age beliefs to vitally exist or to know “right” from “wrong.”
