I have..

evilbible basically cherry picked what they wanted and didnt even bother checking the facts..anybody could take a random sentence from any holy book and make it look bad the people have to actually read the book and not look at it from a biased athiest point of view(ex-Chris "Ali Baba" Thiefe evilbible).


Well, in that vein, you have to look at it not from a biased Christian point of view.

Trying to defend some of the language in the bible is fighting a losing battle. Just because it's in the good book doesn't man it's right.

Something tells me you haven't spent a lot of time reading the Old Testament.

I was just making sure I was thinking of the correct website..but you really think Hitler was a christian?



lol


Have you ever read some of his speeches? He flat out calls himself a christian and spoke highly of Christ.

My feelings as a Christian points me to my Lord and Savior as a fighter. It points me to the man who once in loneliness, surrounded by a few followers, recognized these Jews for what they were and summoned men to fight against them and who, God's truth! was greatest not as a sufferer but as a fighter. In boundless love as a Christian and as a man I read through the passage which tells us how the Lord at last rose in His might and seized the scourge to drive out of the Temple the brood of vipers and adders. ...Today, after two thousand years, with deepest emotion I recognize more profoundly than ever before the fact that it was for this that He had to shed his blood upon the Cross. ...

Most of these verses are the from the law that was given to Moses by God. That is the context. I have a hard time thinking you really believe these verses are being taken out of context. Please justify them if you think they are being wrongly represented.

Kill People Who Don't Listen to Priests

Anyone arrogant enough to reject the verdict of the judge or of the priest who represents the LORD your God must be put to death. Such evil must be purged from Israel. (Deuteronomy 17:12 NLT)



Kill Witches

You should not let a sorceress live. (Exodus 22:17 NAB)

Kill Homosexuals
"If a man lies with a male as with a women, both of them shall be put to death for their abominable deed; they have forfeited their lives." (Leviticus 20:13 NAB)



Kill Fortunetellers

A man or a woman who acts as a medium or fortuneteller shall be put to death by stoning; they have no one but themselves to blame for their death. (Leviticus 20:27 NAB)



Death for Hitting Dad

Whoever strikes his father or mother shall be put to death. (Exodus 21:15 NAB)



Death for Cursing Parents

1) If one curses his father or mother, his lamp will go out at the coming of darkness. (Proverbs 20:20 NAB)

2) All who curse their father or mother must be put to death. They are guilty of a capital offense. (Leviticus 20:9 NLT)



Death for Adultery

If a man commits adultery with another man's wife, both the man and the woman must be put to death. (Leviticus 20:10 NLT)



Death for Fornication

A priest's daughter who loses her honor by committing fornication and thereby dishonors her father also, shall be burned to death. (Leviticus 21:9 NAB)



Death to Followers of Other Religions

Whoever sacrifices to any god, except the Lord alone, shall be doomed. (Exodus 22:19 NAB)



Kill Nonbelievers

They entered into a covenant to seek the Lord, the God of their fathers, with all their heart and soul; and everyone who would not seek the Lord, the God of Israel, was to be put to death, whether small or great, whether man or woman. (2 Chronicles 15:12-13 NAB)



Kill False Prophets

If a man still prophesies, his parents, father and mother, shall say to him, "You shall not live, because you have spoken a lie in the name of the Lord." When he prophesies, his parents, father and mother, shall thrust him through. (Zechariah 13:3 NAB)



Kill the Entire Town if One Person Worships Another God

Suppose you hear in one of the towns the LORD your God is giving you that some worthless rabble among you have led their fellow citizens astray by encouraging them to worship foreign gods. In such cases, you must examine the facts carefully. If you find it is true and can prove that such a detestable act has occurred among you, you must attack that town and completely destroy all its inhabitants, as well as all the livestock. Then you must pile all the plunder in the middle of the street and burn it. Put the entire town to the torch as a burnt offering to the LORD your God. That town must remain a ruin forever; it may never be rebuilt. Keep none of the plunder that has been set apart for destruction. Then the LORD will turn from his fierce anger and be merciful to you. He will have compassion on you and make you a great nation, just as he solemnly promised your ancestors. "The LORD your God will be merciful only if you obey him and keep all the commands I am giving you today, doing what is pleasing to him." (Deuteronomy 13:13-19 NLT)



Kill Women Who Are Not Virgins On Their Wedding Night

But if this charge is true (that she wasn't a virgin on her wedding night), and evidence of the girls virginity is not found, they shall bring the girl to the entrance of her fathers house and there her townsman shall stone her to death, because she committed a crime against Israel by her unchasteness in her father's house. Thus shall you purge the evil from your midst. (Deuteronomy 22:20-21 NAB)

And to the chagrin of many, in the final hours was married to Braun in what was described as a Catholic ceremony.

Bottom line, as much as he wanted to, he couldn't lose the faith of his upbringing.

According to Speer he admired the Muslim faith.




I'll just leave that stinky little statement right there and walk away.

I've met very few individuals that actually followed the teachings of Christ.

Possibly less than a dozen.

Yeah it's funny to me how many Christians cherry pick which portions of the bible and the teaching of Christ they want to follow to the letter. I wonder if they are the same ones who accuse athiests of cherry picking contemptable verses in the bible.

And seriously, the one friend I have who claims most vehemently to be a Catholic, cheats, steals, drinks, and lies constantly. Not only does he do these things, but brags about them constantly. Then he turns up his nose at me for being an atheist.

Oh i see. You're saying he wasn't really a christian in gods eyes. Well I'm not your christian god so I don't know exactly what makes one a christian all I know is Hilter considered himself a Christian and seemed to believe Jesus was god. My point was that he called himself a christian.

Yeah, there are those kind. And there are the kind that flat out ignore the teachings of Christ and harp on Old Testament teachings.

The Old Testament is a horrifying piece of historical literature. Well, the % that is historical anyway.

If they actually followed Christ teachings this is what they would look like.

when there's nothing left to say but generalizations, a religious discussion tends to be over.

Lock it down.

"Why do you look at the speck of sawdust in your brother's eye and pay no attention to the plank in your own eye? How can you say to your brother, `Let me take the speck out of your eye,' when all the time there is a plank in your own eye? You hypocrite, first take the plank out of your own eye, and then you will see clearly to remove the speck from your brother's eye." (Matthew 7:3–5)

If your right eye causes you to stumble, gouge it out and throw it away. It is better for you to lose one part of your body than for your whole body to be thrown into hell. And if your right hand causes you to stumble, cut it off and throw it away. It is better for you to lose one part of your body than for your whole body to go into hell. (Matthew 5:29-30)


Are the teachings figurative or literal? You can't have it both ways. Until you're willing to completely let go of all sin, hatred and forgive and love you need to shut your trap about what someone else is doing.
