The Bible you quote was written by men after they burned the largest library in the world (the Alexandrian Library). I have a hard time taking the word of men who burn books. That Bible has been changed many times since then, also by men. There are many profound things put into that Bible, the best taken from many sources at the time, but it is also filled with politics, and those politics are far below the Word of God as shown by the messages in the book being a source of confusion for centuries, causing murder and mayhem all over the planet, continuing to this very day as GW Bush bombs innocent people because of his religious interpretation of the Bible.
God speaks clearly causing no confusion whatsoever. There are many "channeled" books that seem to be more coherent and whose "channeled" nature indicate them to be "from the heavens" unlike the Bible's need for continued corrections and reinterpretations. Two I'd recommend to all Bible readers are The Oahspe and The Nature of Personal Reality. Both speak in a way that make themselves perfectly clear to a child. And both clearly define the body and the soul, and their relationship.
