    ... studying it for oneself is such a good idea.

    I'll never forget the first time I read about David and Saul as an adult and thought, "Poor Saul."  Then I read further about poor Bathsheba and thought, "David was a real scumbag!" But kids aren't taught about David sending Uriah the honorable and dutiful Hittite to his death, nor do they learn about how Nathan held up the mirror and David's reaction.  And that's just one small part of the Bible.

    If more Christians read the Sermons on the Mount/Plain more often and were given only occasional doses of Paulian opinions couched as such, Christianity would look very different.
