Thomas Paine wrote:
"Whenever we read the obscene stories, the voluptuous debaucheries, the cruel and torturous executions, the unrelenting vindictiveness, with which more than half the Bible is filled, it would be more consistent that we called it the word of a demon that the Word of God. It is a history of wickedness that has served to corrupt and brutalize mankind; and for my own part, I sincerely detest it, as I detest everything that is cruel."
If you read carefully, "dude", he was quoting Thomas Paine.<quoted text>
It is your right to believe it or not. No one is forcing you to go to Heaven, dude. Not even to go to Chruch. I thought the devil was the demom,not God. I think hell would be a cruel place to go to, not Heaven, which is called paradise..btw. I don't see how living in Heaven that is called living in paradise is being cruel to people, but still, your choice.
Why do you not like it, because someone you haven't met yet is trying to tell your butt how you should behave and live your life? Is it that you don't agree with parts of the Bible, like God is against homos? What?
Why do you people see something good as being bad (such as having good values and morals) and bad is looked at as doing good?
