Bible revised

.....for the Bible tells me so...

The Christian Bible. More than three billion copies sold.

Twenty five million, last year, alone,  I'm told.

Now in one thousand languages, and counting.

In every way, a book. Two thousand pages and a binding.

Written by many, still  unknown. Human words, without a doubt.

Fables, fairy tales and folklore found throughout.

No dates given, no reference or evidence provided.

Accounts of history unverifiable, wrong on all science ventured.

Translated, copied, but never edited or revised.

Speaks of an angry, jealous and vengeful God. Worship idols if you dare.

The wrath of God, beware. Fear the Lord. Punishment and judgement everywhere.

For the sinner, its relegation to a fiery place. Murder and massacre at God's command.

Can a book with one million words say something right? Odds are, it might.

Page by page, verse after verse, I searched for  right words;  and, thanks God, I found.

So here's my Bible, the final draft, in length, much turned down.

Easy reading, this one page. The meaning very clear.

Do the motion on this page, and the world is turned around.


Judge not, lest ye be judged.

Do not be overly righteous.

Do to others as you would have them do to you

Forgive them.

Let the one among you who has never sinned be the first to throw a stone.

Thou hypocrite, first cast out the beam from thine own eye.

Love is not boastful, it does not envy, it is not jealous.

From the American Declaration of Independence, I add:

"We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, with certain unalienable rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness."

 Human touch and satisfying sex is for everyone.

How you find it is for you to choose.

Let no person pass judgment on you and me.

So, let's do you and me.
