What Parts of the Bible Should I Take Literally?

The point of being human is to love as God loves.


The Bible is a big confusing book with all kinds of stories and teachings. Are we supposed to take everything literally?

Join Pastor Adam as he discusses some of the surprising history behind biblical interpretation in this episode of One Question!
