It must have been confusing and frightening for Joseph to hear these words. I’m comfortable enough with my faith that I am not afraid to consider and discuss them. Jesus was the Christ, the promised Messiah, so Christ-tianity actually is named after him. If God wanted to manifest himself on Earth, why’d he have to make himself a fetus inside the “virgin” Mary? Man is the one making the decisions that are destroying the planet and the people on the planet, not God. That’s important later.)

It begins with ‘But what sort is this God?” and then starts calling God out on all the weird parts of the stories, from pretending not to know where Adam was to majorly overreacting over eating a fig.

In fact, the Old Testament’s impossible, detailed, and permissive laws were made for people who didn’t understand God. And how humanity can not ultimately reach the hope of God’s heart on their own.

Then there are the other verses, the one’s I’d rather white out and give them the don’t ask don’t tell treatment. James: You bring up an interesting point about your view of God.

“Christian” may have been coined at that time, but details of the Bible, Jesus, etc. This is how we see them in our mind’s eye, angelic and holding the baby Jesus in their arms. Some years ago I worked on a website called Wisdom Commons, a library of timeless quotes and stories from many traditions. As a betrothed young woman, showing up pregnant was a big no-no.

If god was omniscient and knew every single fate of every single being since the beginning of time (and prior, if god has existed for eternity (which I won’t even get to the ridiculousness of that right now)), it makes no sense for god to create Hell for ANY beings which already have a linear fate. All this torture just because they ate the fruit, of which god already knew they were going to eat. The town doesn’t really care for Jesus’s murder-happy habits, and they ask Joseph to discipline his child. Slavery was not his plan but again mankind in his sinful nature has created a whole total package dealing with the evilness of the heart. If she truly follows her own book, that is, if she even reads it, and follows it as she believes she does, maybe she will see her words are not at all love.

Israel on circumcision (Gn 17 v13), could share in festivals (Deut 16.11), including the Passover practiced in other ancient civilizations. …it’s the word of god voted on by the bearded power brokers who cherry picked the chapters to be included more than 300 years after jesus supposedly croaked and went to see his daddy.

Stupid things in the bible that make absoultley no sense?


God. We were all sinners, all deceived by the lies and lusts Satan peddles – but we have a choice.

Why are you so bitter about the Bible? I’d might have more respect for Christianity if god were an imperfect being who was NOT omniscient and omnipotent. Samson was walking with his parents when he saw a lion. We are looking for a tactful approach that won’t get our niece punished for our concern that she’s being psychologically abused. After a great revival occurred in 1801 at Cane Ridge, Kentucky, American Methodists made anti-slavery sentiments a condition of church membership.Roman Catholic efforts extended to the Americas. The Roman Catholic leader of the Irish in Ireland, Daniel O’Connell, supported the abolition of slavery in the British Empire and in America.

So to know the heart of God is to know the ENTIRETY of scripture, not just a few verses that on their own might seem ugly. Since this entity is utterly powerless, it cannot stop the liars; the multi-millionaire evangelists and truck and trade of religion.

Read the Story: 2 Kings 2:23-25 2. rcel.async = true; Back to the Moon for a moment.....seems like a botched job to me.

It's just the incongruities I've come across in the reading that I would like theists to explain to me. We make all of those choices and others, and we, as creative beings, follow each path down its unlimited road and are happy just creating along the way; just like the little girl of boy that all of a sudden starts running across the grass and yells out loud just for the pure joy of “living”, that is freedom of choice. I know, I know… You’re going to say something to the point that god’s motive cannot be understood by us mere mortals. When men fight with one another, and the wife of the one draws near to rescue her husband from the hand of him who is beating him, and puts out her hand and seizes him by the private parts, then you shall cut off her hand.

Not make sense? In this rereading and with the knowledge I've gained since I first read the Bible, I'm coming across stories that are simply improbable.

It will not, however, work in ours.

During the same year, William Wilberforce was persuaded to take up their cause; as an British MP, Wilberforce was able to introduce a bill to abolish the slave trade. Therefore anyone who sets aside one of the least of these commands and teaches others accordingly will be called least in the kingdom of heaven. The former is a crucial part of social, cultural, and moral growth. var rcds = document.getElementById("rcjsload_d9cc34"); Valerie Tarico is a psychologist and writer in Seattle, Washington. Let’s go back to Adam & Eve for a moment. There’s also magic fish, giants, and a prophet who was apparently really sensitive about being bald.
