yikessss!

i got the lowest grade from a religion class.. >.<

anyway, a person doesnt have to know the Bible to be called religious and good..some people know the bible very well including every verses and chapters it has. However, knowing it isnt enough if you dont practice the good values written on it. It is better not to know the bible by heart but doing good things than knowing every word written on it but still doing bad things.

i think it's better to teach GOOD VALUES and right conduct than having a bible study. But if bible study includes teaching of good values and right conduct and not just simply reading it in class, then that would be better..

I just finished taking a Religions class where we studied every major religion. That kind of religion in school is fine, because it's optional and not just about one specific religion. Forcing people to learn about the Bible or any specific religion is just ridiculous.

I find a high amount of people that do learn the hole bible and read if front to back without skipping pages do end up Agnostic or in some cases even Atheist. ' So knowing the bible might not be a good case to making Christians.. most the bible makes The God out to be some evil Overlord.

I was taught about christianity and other religions while in highschool. (in a seccular way) I enjoyed it. But bible study in school????? I "might" be ok with it if it is an elective class.
