Letter about biblical literalism

My family moved to this area just a few months ago, and I certainly enjoy reading the Journal every week. Having been a "city girl" most of my life, I feel getting to the the "country" perspective is very important, and your paper provides a pleasant way for me to do so.

I have often formed an opinion after reading various articles; therefore I was pleased to see a section entitled "Opinions". Most of us like to hear our own opinion, so who wouldn't like to see it in print? Unfortunately, I was not pleased with the opinions expressed the the biblical literalism piece. The letters that have followed, that have given good reason to disagree with the author's opinion, have made me glad there are some "country perspectives" with which I can agree. I wanted to thank those people who know the facts are were willing to take the time to share them.

I also just wanted to add one more thought that some might find amusing. The "Opinions" writer made mention of the Bible needing to be thrown out alongside the ancient practice of blood letting. Funny comparison, for if the doctors or scientists who came up with the blood letting idea had read the Bible, they never would have tried their failing idea; for the Bible teaches us that "the life of the flesh is in the blood." (Lev. 17:11-14 KJV).

Interesting Old Book, isn't it?
