Reading the Bible literally is like trying to fit a square peg into a round hole.
A recent article in The Huffington Post, by David Lose, the Director of the Center for Biblical Preaching at Luther Seminary, offers four arguments why the Bible should NOT be read LITERALLY. Here they are:
1) Nowhere does the Bible claim to be inerrant.
2) Reading the Bible literally distorts its witness.
3) Most Christians across history have not read the Bible literally
4) Reading the Bible literally undermines a chief confession of the Bible about God.
