I did and you have not RR.<quoted text>
When read by ignorant morons like you, yes.
It's people like you that misread the Bible. It's people like you that started the Crusades.
Study the Bible, son. Don't just read it.
Want to test my knowledge vs yours of the OT or NT?
Pick ANY verse and I will find one that contradicts yours.
Most atheists have actually taken the time to read the stupid book you find so compelling.
What is there to misread?
Among God's curses on people who won't obey his commandments is the following: "And thou shalt eat the fruit of thine own body, the flesh of thy sons and of thy daughters, which the LORD thy God hath given thee." (Deuteronomy 28:53)
Here we go again. Disgusting!
Since the Israelites were not supposed to "work" on the Sabbath day, a man who was caught picking up sticks (presumably for firewood, but who cares?) was ordered directly by God to be stoned to death.(Numbers 15:33-36) For another infraction there was another slaughter. "And the LORD said unto Moses, Take all the heads of the people, and hang them up before the LORD against the sun." (Numbers 25:4) Heads. More heads. But not in baskets this time. I guess the severed heads were hung up on tree branches or something.(I may be ill.)
If a son is stubborn, rebellious, a glutton and a drunkard he shall be stoned to death.(Deuteronomy 21:20-21) "Witches" are to be stoned to death.(Leviticus 20:27) So witches really do exist - according to the Bible. Homosexuals must be murdered.(Leviticus 20:13) and (Romans 1:26¬32) You should beat your children with rods.(Proverbs 23:13,14) A king offers his oldest son as a "burnt offering." (2 Kings 3:27)
Two men who had displeased God were buried alive with their wives and little children.(Numbers 16:27-33) Men who plotted against Daniel are thrown into a lions' den along with their wives and children. The lions "broke all their bones in pieces." (Dan 6:24)
Whether as an allegory or not, a disgusting story is told about raping a woman to death: " The man took his concubine, and brought her forth unto them; and they knew her, and abused her all the night until the morning: and when the day began to spring, they let her go." (Judges 19:25) Her "lord" finds her dead in the morning. "And when he was come into his house, he took a knife, and laid hold on his concubine, and divided her, together with her bones, into twelve pieces." (Judges 19:29)
Would you read this story to your 12-year-old?
If a virgin is raped, the rapist must pay the now non-virginal girl's father "fifty shekels" and the girl must marry her rapist. So says the Bible.(Deuteronomy 22:28, 29) The daughter of any priest, who "profanes" him by being a whore, "shall be burnt with fire." (Leviticus 21:9)
The Bible is obsessed with hymens and whores. Not at all coincidentally, the Bible makes it seem like a woman can be a "whore" or lose her hymen, all by herself. Wicked woman! However, the usual hymen/whoring activities include men, 100% of the time.
Lot's two virginal daughters get him drunk and each sleeps with him to "preserve seed" of their father. No disapproval of the drunkenness and incest is even hinted at.(Genesis 19:32)
Jesus tells a parable about 10 virgins marrying the same groom on the same night.
He utters not one word of condemnation about such an obscene situation, but merely goes on about the lamps and the oil.
(Matthew 25) Women must keep silent and learn only from their husbands.(1 Corinthians 14:34,35) Women must "submit" to their husbands.(1 Timothy 2:11,12) Does that include wife-beaters? It appears to be all-inclusive. Women must peak to their husbands in fear.(1 Peter 3:1-7)
It's the 21st century... you know it is a myth.
