One of the important things to continually point out in the Bible is the fact Jesus is not a great guy. Christians point to the evils of the Old Testament and argue that doesn’t matter because Jesus came along in the New Testament to spread love. Not true. It’s Crazy Bible Verse Tuesday and today’s verse once again shows Jesus is not a good guy.
“As Jesus was saying these things, a woman in the crowd called out, ‘Blessed is the mother who gave you birth and nursed you.’ He replied, ‘Blessed rather are those who hear the word of God and obey it.’” – Luke 11:27-28
Someone in the crowd blesses Jesus’ mother and in return Jesus says, nope, don’t bless her, bless those who obey God. The same god who rapes and murders everyone he can. Jesus is just as horrible as father who raped a virgin to give birth to himself.
It’s Crazy Bible Verse Tuesday and today we see God forcing people to lie to prove his point. Sigh.
“‘I will go and be a deceiving spirit in the mouths of all his prophets,’ he said. ‘You will succeed in enticing him,’ said the Lord. ‘Go and do it.’ ‘So now the Lord has put a deceiving spirit in the mouths of these prophets of yours. The Lord has decreed disaster for you.’” – 2 Chronicles 18:21-22
Much of the Bible focuses on how evil the average person is. God has to punish people because they lie, deceive, murder, etc. But this verse shows us that God is the one forcing the people to lie! So how often are people punished by God because God forced them to lie? Hmm. An evil god, causing people to be evil, so he can punish them for their evil. Biblical morality.
It’s Crazy Bible Verse Tuesday and today’s verse looks at some of the bad science in the Bible. As readers well know, the Bible is horrible at getting the science right!
“The fifth angel sounded his trumpet, and I saw a star that had fallen from the sky to the earth.” – Revelation 9:1
If a star had actually fallen from the sky to Earth, well, let’s just say Earth would be toast, we’d be dead, and there’d be no ridiculous Bible to read from! 🙂
Today is Crazy Bible Verse Tuesday and I’ve chosen a verse out of the book of Jude in the New Testament.
“Though you already know all this, I want to remind you that the Lord at one time delivered his people out of Egypt, but later destroyed those who did not believe.” – Jude 1:5
Christians will have you believe the Bible, and in particular the New Testament, is a book of peace, kindness, and love. It is not. Time is taken in this chapter to show that God destroyed those who did not believe in him. Is that the sign of a loving and just god? No, it isn’t. God has the ability to show himself and convince EVERYONE he is real. Instead he stays hidden and chooses to kill those that critically think through the issues.
Last week we took a look at the not-so-nice version of Jesus in the Bible. Today in Crazy Bible Verse Tuesday, we look at another not-so-nice version of Jesus.
“As it was in the days of Noah, so it will be at the coming of the Son of Man.” – Matthew 24:37
Jesus loves you, but he will express that love by killing everyone in a massive flood.
It’s Crazy Bible Verse Tuesday! I’ve probably shared this previously on this blog, but it is a good one that shows that Jesus is not the nice, kind, friendly guy Christians make him out to be.
“Do not suppose that I have come to bring peace to the earth. I did not come to bring peace, but a sword. For I have come to turn ‘a man against his father, a daughter against her mother, a daughter-in-law against her mother-in-law— a man’s enemies will be the members of his own household.’” – Matthew 10:34-36
Jesus, the destroyer of families.
It’s another week of Crazy Bible Verse Tuesday and today’s verse looks at how God is just and thoughtful in how he hands out punishment.
“Therefore I will give their wives to other men and their fields to new owners.” – Jeremiah 8:10
God doesn’t punish those who do bad. He punishes their wives! Because we know those men only did bad because their wives tricked them, right? God is a fucking idiot and this is just one of many, many verses in the Bible in which God punishes those who did not do the wicked deed.
