I agree with that, not saying Jesus was bad or anything. I definately agree it's a good message in a way, unless you take the entire bible literally. There's a lot of dumb stuff in the bible that has also caused the world a lot of harm. IT has some good messages, and some bad ones. The main point is that it is flawed. If the word of god is flawed, then it's not the word of god. Planting 2 crops in the same field will get you a one way ticket to hell according to Leviticus. That's not a loving and caring god.
Religion is good for kids, but when you're an adult and still believe that is the only reason we exist, you have problems.
