Check out these sites which contain valid information about inconsistencies in that 'great' book called the Bible:
A very knowledgeable brother from another site that I subscribe to puts it down a little something like this...
"Religion is in the wrong hands...."
The reason we are so disconnected with nature, one another, and God is because of the barriers that have been erected between the people and their spirituality via organized religion. The notion that we are to be tied to one particular book, with one (generally foreign) culture's cosomogony, and that we are to be led by one human being limits our spiritual growth. It fossilizes our sense of divinity and entraps us in a dogma that has no relation to the present times.
If the people take back our spirituality and sense of religion, the crusty old establishment will not be able to control us. They will not grow fat off of Black families rushing to the toy stores every Christmas. They won't be able to hold their cruel notions of sin and hell over our heads. Afrikans will not sit back and allow Arabs to torture them in their own countries due to a misguided worship of the Arabs' Prophet. Not only that, but the churches in the US have been under the thumb of the establishment since the 1960's. Once they saw how powerful the church was during the Civil Rights Era, they infiltrated them right away. They were able to appeal to weak and greedy preachers who would rather drive a Lexus than preach the truth.
That's why I love the self-educated posters on this list. Remember that a preacher, priest, or shaykh is not any holier than you are. They have just studied. STUDY. Do your own research. Don't forget that your relationship with God is your responsibility. And PRACTICE. You do not need anyone to connect with God. Don't let bad experiences with clergy-folk or things you've read (whether in books or the Scriptures) scare you away from Her/Him. Your prayers are heard just as well at home as they are in church. Maybe you don't pray at home the way you pray in church or the mosque. Do it your way. God knows your heart.

"...Christians are caught in the strangest of religious paradoxes. On the one hand, they are asked to confer the highest qualities of power, perfection, and omnipotence upon God, yet at the same time, they are asked to seek and accept explanations of the imperfection of this God to uphold their faiths. That is how these fallacies and inconsistencies became the foundations of Christian faith, belief and "absolute truth..." -- "The Africans Who Wrote the Bible, Dr. Darkwah, page 72"
