Ancient One - you seem to be an authority on this (good on you - it's always a pleasure to see someone will a clear understanding of both the good and the bad in the Bible). Can you answer a question for me? I think a lot of people mistakenly believe that the Golden Rule comes from the Bible. I don't think it's in there. Can you confirm?

I try to live my life by the Golden Rule as opposed to the Bible. But then I've never been all that religious. I gave up my imaginary friends decades ago. ;\-\)

It's not a direct quote, but the paraphrasing of Matthew 7:12.

Therefore all things whatsoever ye would that men should do to you: do ye even so to them: for this is the law and the prophets

So whatever you wish that others would do to you, do also to them, for this is the Law and the Prophets.

Do to others whatever you would like them to do to you. This is the essence of all that is taught in the law and the prophets.

It's repeated in Luke 6:31.
And as ye would that men should do to you, do ye also to them likewise.

It's also the spirit of "Love they neighbour as thyself," which is a direct quote from numerous verses.
