Is the Bible still relevant to today's society?

Elizabeth Patterson

I find this question important as the Bible is one of the earth’s oldest traditions, and mysteries. I think personally what is more important that people our age keep our minds open when it concerns religion, it is a beautiful creation that has developed over millions of years. I think that my entry expresses that we should continue to help it grow and change - especially if that means voicing our questions and opinions! In our time we can mix religion with science, which can go very far. It is meaningful because it is all of our heritage, and we should all be able to explore it as we wish - which has not always been possible.

This piece discusses both the positive and negative aspects of the Bible. I was raised as a catholic since I was young so I have always been taught the important lessons of the Bible, but through studying religious and philosophic studies myself and growing up I have put my own opinion together :)
