intolerance which must be deliberate. You claim to understand and seek to justify the mind, (word) of god, to understand the incomprehensible babble that is a series of contradictions, obscenities and yes surprisingly even some moral truisms which can be found amongst it. Why does it contradict so much in a way that forces believers to invent such convoluted explanations? That is easy to explain in the modern age for it has been clearly demonstrated that the bible is the work of many hands at many different periods, none of whom were divinely inspired(unless you think the divinity suffers from lack of intellect and/or communication skills). Go ahead and speak of your psychobabble of 'born again' if it helps you justify the mish mash that it really is. Only don't expect to convince any but the poorest and feeblest of mankind. The rest of us are able and equipped to make up our own minds as opposed to hundreds and thousands years ago when poor and desperate folk looked up to their religious leaders, (bigots) for explanations for their woes.
