Biblical language employed in these contexts is actually pretty strong: eating shellfish is an abomination, a bare head is a disgrace, gossips will not inherit the kingdom of God, careless words are punishable by hell, guys who leer at women should gouge out their eyes.

If you follow exactly the Bible today.. you live in the Middle East.

Right-wing biblical illiterates would be shocked by Jesus’ teachings …if they ever picked up a Bible

More than 95 percent of U.S. households own at least one copy of the Bible.

So how much do Americans know of the book that one-third of the country believes to be literally true? Apparently, very little, according to data from the Barna Research group.

Surveys show that 60 percent can’t name more than five of the Ten Commandments; 12 percent of adults think Joan of Arc was Noah’s wife; and nearly 50 percent of high school seniors think Sodom and Gomorrah were a married couple. A Gallup poll shows 50 percent of Americans can’t name the first book of the Bible, while roughly 82 percent believe “God helps those who help themselves” is a biblical verse.

So, if Americans get an F in the basic fundamentals of the Bible, what hope do they have in knowing what Jesus would say about labor unions, taxes on the rich, universal healthcare, and food stamps? It becomes easy to spread a lie when no one knows what the truth is.

Of course, in the US, people are salad-bar "christians"-- they pick a little here, they pick a little there, they add a little from their own imaginations.

If Christians are to be diligent in the belief shouldn't Christians follow the intent as well as the 10 Commandments? I'm surprised as a devout Christian you are blissfully unaware of this passage in the Bible...hmmm
Are you young or newly converted?
Wonderful! I don't know if you are a christian or not, but don't expect an answer back from Anti. He/she tends to ignore your statements when they are facts. I am not a christian any longer, but I knew there was a verse in the bible that said this, I just wasn't able to remember where it was :-) Thank you :D

Thanks for the information. I was just curious as to why anti thinks that America is any more "relevant" than any other country.:0)

The world's highest standards of living and and a happy society are irrelevant to most religious idiots who thrive on misery and suffering.

The Swedes just aren't depressed or cranky enough to turn to religion.
