During my stint as a sheep at UBF, I remember shocking my shepherd (and one or two other people within earshot) when we were talking about the Bible. I mentioned that there were some parts of the Bible that I found excruciatingly dull. I thought one of them was going to drop dead when I said that.
I have never heard anyone react that way. Furthermore, I have heard many people, some of them priests and ministers, and some the most devout Christians (in the good sense of the word) I know, agree and say the same thing.
