- The Bible is 2000 years old and the sociocultural context it was written in no longer exists, so understanding what the author actually meant is an exercise in literary history at the very least.
- The Bible is (among other things) a book of laws and breaking those laws sends you to Hell forever. Have you seen what our modern laws look like? Definitions and sub-clauses all over the place to leave no room for error in the interpretation of the law. And it's still not enough - new technologies and cultural norms mean that we need to debate whether spyware is a type of wiretapping. Imagine how it is when the laws haven't been updated since the New Testament, and the stakes are an eternity of bliss or torture.
