There's no mischaracterization of the Bible. It's simply common sense. Simple study of the OT and ancient times clearly shows up the ignorance of those who are indoctrinated. Tell me how Hosea 11 can possibly refer to Jesus - as the writer of Matthew says. The chapter clearly refers to ISRAEL. And Jesus was never called Israel - or went into Egypt. Indeed, Luke tells us that he returned - with Joseph and Mary - from Bethlehem to Nazareth 40 days.after his birth. (After Mary's purification). Matthew and Luke can't both be right. The Massacre of the Innocents never occurred. The OT reference has nothing to do with the time of Jesus. Study Davids life as recorded in the Bible and Psalm 22 is clearly about his own experiences. The mischaracterization of the Bible is from your side. As time goes on churches are beginning to realise that they have to understand the OT as it was written, not as they have been taught for 2 millenia. That modern archaeology shows the errors, as well as the truth, of facts written in the Bible. The stables of Solomon at Megiddo were not Solomons at all. They were 200 years later and belonged to Ahab. And that makes common sense as Megiddo was too far from Jerusalem to be of use to Solomon, but was in Ahabs territory. The OT was written by the Jews, for the Jews. It was never intended to be read by 'gentiles'.
