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.

KJV:
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

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

NLT:
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.
KJV:
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.
