Hi Paul
As a Christian I view the category mistake that you are making is to make the Bible the focus of your faith instead of it being Jesus. Understanding the Bible as being inerrant leaves you with a very confused image of God.
An inerrant Bible leaves us with a God that tells us to love our enemy but also told His followers to go and slaughter their neighbours including men women and children. It leaves you with a God who tells us that we will be forgiven as we forgive but then tells his followers to get together and stone to death some poor schmuck for picking up firewood on the Sabbath.
I've said this before but I suggest that you remember that it is CHRISTianity and not Biblianity. The two are not compatible.
Just read through the "Sermon on the Mount" and see the number of times Jesus corrects what was written in the Hebrew Scriptures which we now call the OT.

He has told you, O man, what is good ; And what does the LORD require of you But to do justice, to love kindness, And to walk humbly with your God.
Micah 6:8
