You see, Link...I am asking: If your god is so powerful...and if your wants us to know what it is like...and wants us to know what pleases or offends it...and wants us to know what it expects of us...
...why didn't it do a better job of getting the message out?
Ummmm, I think almost every home in the world has got a bible, and if you can't understand it (or you want some pretty pictures) Get a children's bible.
Well...as Set noted...not every home has a Bible. Mine does...several, in fact. Here's a bibliography of them.

The point is, though, as has been discussed betwen Link and me...is that Christians constantly claim there are errors in them...made my men.
My question...for perhaps the 5th or 6th time is: Why...if your god is so interested in letting humans know what it is like...what pleases and offends it...and what it expects of humans...
...why, oh, why has it not done a better job of getting the message out?. (No matter how many Bibles are in existence.)
How about answering that question, Thunder...instead of evading it?
