It's tough when you base your religion on books that span 2000 years and ended before the first century AD while society has changed greatly in that time frame. If you are an Evangelical or Fundamentalist you are stuck with an archaic code that has you believing a 6000 year old universe, a global flood, demons and a devil, hellfire and other such fables. If progressive, you ignore some fundamental principles to accept gays, women as teachers, etc.

Life is so much simpler if you follow Jesus' words as a wise man and ignore the rest of religion.
