Considering that the Bible has existed over two thousand years or so and billion or more people read the Bible, there must be some benefit from reading it. What do you think?
I think you’d learn a lot about Christianity and Islam… but they are almost 2000 years old so I don’t think they are especially relevant today besides what you learn about religion… and almost all Muslims and Christians choose the parts they believe and the parts they don’t. Even the fundamentalists are cherry-pickers. Also I would worry about religious delusions.
I have one Bible in English and it is beneficial for me to read it in order to maintain my English skills in the society where everybody uses another language,
Please debate theology elsewhere. This is not the place for it.
