Bible, Schmible

I usually find that I am more familiar with what the bible actually says than most Chrisians I've talked to. In fact, most of them don't seem to care. I've come to the conclusion that Christianity is really a verbal tradition, just as primitive cultures passed on their cultural traditions through storytelling. It seems that most Christians learn their religion from what they are taught by their families, and later by their pastors and other church members. That is why it is usually so futile to try to argue biblical theology with the average Christian. What is actually in the bible has very little to do with their beliefs, which are strongly tied to family tradition and social culture.
