The Book of Lies
While I was there, one young man picked up a Bible, sneered, and said to his American friend, "I do not like this book."
"Why do you say that?" the American asked.
"It is a book of lies."
"No, this book is truth," the American countered. "Show me a lie in this book."
"Maybe I will show you in ten years. Right now, you cannot understand."
The American later told me that he's had similar discussions with others in the group. One young refugee told the American that he believed in God and in Jesus, but he did not believe the Bible. When asked why, the young refugee explained, "The Bible was written by men, and all men are liars."
