Everybody has a different interpretation of what the Bible says. Can't you make the Bible mean anything you want it to mean?

Often, those who raise this sort of objection are relying on what others have said or written about the Bible, instead of what they've actually read themselves. Most folks wouldn't pay much attention to a review of a movie written by someone who hadn't seen it, yet some reject the Bible without ever finding out themselves exactly what it has to say. And we'd argue that not "everybody" has a different interpretation -- even people who refuse to believe what the Bible says usually have little trouble understanding its message once they've read it for themselves.
