I never get tired of reposting this. Every quote you see above are actual texts from the Bible itself. These are just a few examples of the gruesome stuff your pastor never tells you about.
I was literally thinking about this post the other day but couldn’t find it. So glad it came back on my dash. I needed to reblog this again because some people just don’t know.
If god really existed it would be necessary to abolish him - Mikhail Bakunin
8 out of 9 of these books were from the old testament. Majority of the old testament was mainly constructed for two things. One, show what the world would be like with a merciless God. Secondly, to show that no matter what you struggle with regardless of societies standards. Everyone will eventually fall short of the Glory of God. The new testament is the reply to the old testament saying that all sins are forgiven, we are all equals in the eyes of God and is all loved equally. Period.
If things were fair in this world we would all be living by the Law Code of Hammurabi. Fortunately, God has mercy and love or whatever higher being what you want to call that told the egg to make chickens and that makes eggs. We can focus on these old testaments verses and excuse the questions of God. Or we can actually look for the unbiased information ourselves instead of looking up at an ambiguous billboard.
Choice is ours, it always has been. We choose science over history when it comes to religion. I get it, the idea of a God Complex not being able fitting into a Human Complex doesn’t make sense. It doesn’t add up, well, faith doesn’t add up either and we still have it. Whether it be in each other, in a science whiz or in a higher being that may or may not exist. Still think it’s bullshit, go ask Roman Tacitus, Lucian of Samosata and Mara Bar-Serapion and so on so forth.
I said all of this out of love and respect, guys. Anytime hit me up if you want to further continue this convo.
