What is not true in the Bible
How true is the Bible and how literally can we take it?

The Bible reports what people experienced with God. To be more precise: people wrote down what they experienced with God. More precisely: for more than a thousand years, thousands of people have written down their experiences with their faith. You have collected, rewritten, organized and compiled texts. This is how the Bible came into being.
The Bible is the work of man. God plays the decisive role in this. Is the Bible true now? And how literal can we take it? Pontius Pilate asks: What is truth? And he doesn't get an answer. Today's philosophers say that finding the truth is a process in which people come ever closer to reality, but without being able to fully reach and understand it. It is the same with the Bible. The more I read it, the more I get to know it.
Even many Christians cannot subscribe to the view that the Bible was revealed by God. After all, a third of all people see themselves as Christians. Much of what is described in the Bible does not correspond to the reality of modern man. However, many people find biblical truths useful, such as the commandment to love one's neighbor. That is how people think today, but truth does not depend on when it was spoken.
The truth is not decided by the wording either. Many biblical texts exist several times with certain differences. They come from different times, cultures and languages. Advice and instructions belong first of all in the old context of life and their content must be carried over to the present day. Some things remain completely foreign to us today. And if you want to take the Bible literally, you have to understand Hebrew and Greek.
