Well, if you ask me, a lot of what passes as theology today is nothing more than personal bias and hubris. You're looking up to very human men interpreting scripture for guidance. If what they say doesn't feel right to you, it probably isn't.

But then again, I don't believe the Bible is the literal word of God, and I wouldn't call myself a Christian either.

Unfortunately, you are quite right. Too few men who consider themselves called into ministry really are. Thus they are propelled not by the unction of the Holy Spirit but by, as you say, personal agendas. The ministry has become just another kind of job for some.

With the Bible translated into over 120 different English translations through the years, not one of them is a perfect translation. We can only trust absolutely the orginal manuscripts in Greek, Hebrew and Aramaic. But with what we have I believe the discerning reader who searches diligently can arrive at God's will sufficiently. Problem is that it seems these days too many are willing to let someone else do the studying for them.
