I think (and correct me if I'm wrong) that you're hoping to use the idea that there are several profound statements in the bible to show that the bible either a) has worth, or b) is a good moral guide (or something equivalent). This is actually a logical fallacy: The fallacy of the Biased Sample.
Essentially, you're hoping to say 'the bible is good' by cherrypicking the things that are
reasonable (I especially love Paul's description of Love) while ignoring all the things that aren't.
Take, for instance, the following quotes:
“Kindness in words creates confidence. Kindness in thinking creates profoundness. Kindness in giving creates love.”
“Give a man a fish and you feed him for a day. Teach a man how to fish and you feed him for a lifetime.”
“To know that you do not know is the best.
To pretend to know when you do not know is a disease.”
“Accomplish but do not boast, accomplish without show, accomplish without arrogance, accomplish without grabbing, accomplish without forcing.”
“Being deeply loved by someone gives you strength, while loving someone deeply gives you courage.”
... these were written about 2000 BCE, by a man named Lao Tse, in a book called the Tao Te Ching
. Does this wisdom imply that you should become a Taoist? (Allow me to add that the basic books of the Taoist faith eschew slavery, decry materialism, absolutely circumscribe violence (they state explicitly when it can be used), and do not contain stories of genocide or any sort of talking animal. The /fables/ have talking animals, though.)
I can't ignore the bad to take the good, J - and you shouldn't either. Rather, you should take good ideas wherever they're found, and recognize that just because a good idea exists in a source doesn't mean the entire source is worthwhile.
At the risk of Godiwning things, let me offer you one more quote:
"“And I can fight only for something that I love, love only what I respect, and respect only what I at least know.” - Mein Kampf
, Adolf Hitler.
... get the point?
