I don't have the time or the energy to reply to all the assumptions he started this thread with. In short: My advice is too keep reading the Bible and meditating on its words. Read for yourself and not just passages a bible study or the pastor told you to read. Focus especially on Leviticus. If there is any logical center and compassion for others in any part of your being, the authority of the Bible begins to dry up.
It's kind of ironic that my Christian faith began to dry up as soon as I started reading the Bible for myself. I think anyone seeking truth can weed the Bible out as an authority of such, by the time they get through Leviticus. For others it only takes the first few chapters.
