Simple, Does verse help cause/case/point/arguement?

If YES, its factual

If NO, its allegory until such a degree is reached that it helps cause/case/point/arguement

 

(verses previously used as factual or allegory are subject to change on demand)

Doesn't matter. EVEN if one strips the moral objections to that convoluted pile of tribal bullshit, it is STILL full of naked assertion fantastical magical claims.

"BE KIND TO YOUR NEIGHBOR" is a NO DUH, but because I find value in that doesn't make Christianity the inventor of human morals, nor does it mean godsperm can magically pop Mary's cherry without a second set of DNA.
