Judging others through our own fears

Editor:

In regards to Scott Christensenís comments, preaching from the Bible that all humans are born into a morally depraved state, the Bible has been rewritten and has many versions and then it is taken out of context until it fits the certain lifestyle of that particular church and how we should be living according to their version of the bible. If we take the Bible literally we would be stoning our neighbors to death and taking matters into our own hands through fear and hatred. There are many religions and lifestyles, and as long as we keep judging others through our own fears and using the Bible as a means to promote hatred and judgment, we will only continue to have religious wars, with continued killings and alienating in the name of God, who I was taught represented love and understanding and caring for one another.
