Yes. It would be different every time it's read. Impossible to remember everything reading it and most of all important, IF there was ARROGANCE to actually believe upon reading it that the readers thoughts interpreted things for themself to be led to believe they read it actually the way it was exactly supposed to be looked at / assumed as how to be read so to speak and living the rest of ones life believing the way they saw it once or even twice and so on is ONLY that way in a person's mind and that they got it right with all kinds of forms of formal conviction and THEY'RE the one who knows exactly how it IS. Whooosh! Good luck with that. After reading the entire thing I truly believe the best thing I come to learn that should be wisdom is the statement " Judge no one ". God is the only judge and people love to make a mess of things. The way it is, all people judge ever though they say they don't, kind people can make just as much a mess as great sinners, and MOST ALL THE TIME there is no healing for arrogance and ALL people have it in some small or large form or another. There is no prayer or fasting or pill or anything else to heal it. Arrogance is presumptious thoughts to come to an end result believed to be sincerely true in what is real in reality. Even when the most kindest people can be sincerely thought to of believed they knew something, they can be sincerely wrong. This is the greatest thing I've come to learn about people and why it's so difficult to deal with so many of them, and why probably so many Saints had to go into exile to deal with the stupidity of it. People are creatures and that truth is offensive to some who wish to distance themself from some kind of thought that that is true to some kind of extent. Even while their sitting on the toilet. At any time in life if you swipe the front of your teeth with a swab and take the swab's sample to a glass plate for a microscope and look at it magnified you will see little microbes crawling around on the glass plate. I'm giving this example to show that people should humble themselves from being too arrogant coming up with quick thoughts about others with at times so much needless hurt involved in those thoughts no matter how small or subtle the hurt is, we are all fragile to some point and JUST WHO DO YOU THINK YOU ARE when we do this? Something to contemplate when a person is putting their waste in a toilet as an example.

Any body can read the entire Bible the key is studying the bible inspired by the Holy Spirit of God and because the word of God is Spirit and life only a Spiritual child can understand the word of God.
Many people read the word as a story book and receive nothing, but have they studied under the direction and supervision of the Holy Spirit.
1 Corinthians 2:14 "But the natural man receiveth not the things of the Spirit of God: For they are foolishness unto him: Neither can he know them, because they are spiritually discerned".

You can make your own decisions, that is true. But, you know this since you've read it so many times, the Bible tells us to reach out to the non-believers and try to reach them with the Gospel. You are not believing God's word anymore, and that is not healthy. I do not mean this in a mean or rude way, but I truly hope God will give you some heartache so you will realize how good it is to have God to lean on! A prayer of commitment you could pray... Break me Lord, until I'm wholly yours.

Since you have read it several time then you must be familiar with 2 Peter 3: 3-7
Knowing this first, that there shall come in the last days SCOFFERS, walking after their own lust, and saying where is the promise of his coming...................................... You read the rest my friend and JESUS LOVES YOU, BUT DISLIKES THE IGNORANCE.

I think you are my youngest friend, and one that has more faith than many adults. Jesus pointed to children for a reson. Keep your faith, without faith it is impossible to please God. Read hebrews, it will explain.

Yes. Reading it is has helped uncover the horrible inconsistencies and contradictions. I'm not stating that there isn't some beautifully written parts of it. Probably some of the best literature and stories ever written. But it also covers the other end of the spectrum as well. It has some of the most disgusting, perverse pieces that could ever be conceived. It has inspired an amount of great actions throughout history, but yet also has inspired some of the most inconceivable actions man can commit on another (the inquisition, crusades, witch hunts, Protestant/Catholic slaughters, inhibiting the aids work in Africa, the spread of intolerance in modern America, and the current state of stem cell research). These things (along with the inherent violence of the bible) are simply overlooked by modern day christians. Why? Who knows. Some argue that when Jesus came the "old word rules" were simply thrown to the side, and the new rules of tolerance and love came about.  

Let's take a look at some specifics of the New Testament.

Anti-Semitism- Appears in Matthew, John, Acts, Romans, Corinthians 2, Thessalonians 1/2,  Timothy 2, Titus, and Revelation.

Unbelievers fate in hell(whether or not they have ever been preached to about the savior)-

 Appears in Matthew, Mark, Luke, John, Acts, Romans, Corinthians 1(Christians can judge anything and everyone, no non-christians can judge them 2:15), Corinthians 2, Galatians, Ephesians, Philippians, Thessalonians 1/2, Timothy 1/2, Titus, Hebrews, James, Peter 1/2,  John 1/2, Jude and Revelation

Now this doesn't necessarily mean just a person that knows and understands god, and has simply not accepted him. It is explicitly clear that even if the word of god has never reached them through no fault of their own (because of geographic location, solitude etc..) they are still destined for an eternity of hell. To take it even further Jesus instructs his disciples to steer clear of certain groups of people (Gentiles, Samaritans) and go only to the Israelites(Matthew). This is a clear example of intolerance in the New Testament. 

I'll end with this:

 If anyone does not remain in me, he is like a branch that is thrown away and withers; such branches are picked up, cast into the fire and burned.  John 15:1-8

This is a prime example of intolerance and unacceptance, stated in the New Testament, reminiscent of the Old Testament.
