Wasn't sure where to post this so figured I'd blog my question instead!
I've been a committed Christian for about 20 yrs.
I don't come from a Christian family. I was raised in an academic family where the point was to dissect every word of a text to analyse it to death.
I made the mistake of chosing a Biblical studies course at university where I learnt about how the Bible was put together by a group of men over several centuries.
I had some hard times about 10 years ago and also 3 bouts of depression.
These factors have really harmed my view of the Bible.
I find it hard to 'connect' with Scripture now - whenever I read it I automatically think of all the 'flaws' and violence and circular arguments...
but deep down I know the Bible is God's word to me.
Can anyone offer any helpful insights pls?
BTW, this IS related to healthy eating as I turn to food for strength and comfort at the moment when I actually DO want to turn to God and His word.
