    Whenever one refers to the literature from which the Greek gods came from, such as the Iliad, its referred to as mythology. And yet, the literature of the Christian God, the Bible, is not. Both pieces of literature were written around the same time period, and yet, in modern day, the Bible represents a way of life for some religious organizations while the Iliad is simply read for pleasure.
