When we encounter the real God He opens the scriptures to us.
Then we can read the Bible with discrimination.
Seeking God's face helps us to know which words are from God and which words are the messenger's fears and assumptions.
Any violence, judgement, or oppression is not from God.
God is Love.
And He condemns no one.
It is our job to separate the fragments of Light from the shards of pottery which contained them.
