As an historian, I cannot help but look at the Bible as an historical document. As such, I see it as written by men and not God. This alone is somewhat detrimental to the principles of the Church. What is more, I continually analyze and doubt the translations that I have been given, as well as feel the need to search out those documents which were not allowed to be a part of the New Testament. Then again, even the old testament is flawed with multiple interpretations within one story; just look at the creation story. It is these questions that will lead to the huge debate that may not be contained in my head.
