If you ever sent me a nice anon message I hope all your dreams come true and may your harvest be bountiful
Well this is awkward.
I’m not a devout Christian, but, really, this is horrifying.
I’ve heard quite a few people say that they became atheists because they read the bible. Would that surprise you reading things like this? I don’t care what testament this is from, this is horrendous.
and then the word of god convinced me that it wasn’t.
Guys, you’re taking those out of context. You can’t look at a few sentences from a couple of chapters expect to understand the entire bible, especially not from the old testament.
From what I can tell, this advertisement thing is doing what a lot of ‘devout’ christians do.
HOW DO YOU TAKE “If a man is caught in the act of raping a young girl who is not engaged, he must pay fifty pieces of sliver to her father” OUT OF CONTEXT?????
WHAT CONTEXT IS THAT SUPPOSED TO BE IN? THE ONE THAT MAKES THE BIBLE LOOK GOOD??????
I’m sorry if this offends any of you or makes me lose followers, but I couldn’t scroll past this.
As opposed to everyone else in that time who could rape, enslave, and do whatever the hell else they wanted to do without repercussion. These set initial boundaries and were intended to start teaching discipline. These were basic rules to start teaching humanity not to be barbaric. I’m sorry but when you want a child get a masters degree you don’t start them in a graduate program, you start them in kindergarten. And a lot of those are from stories, not just random statements. So calm the hell down athiests.
But what about the thousands of people that take this word for word? Did you ever think of that?
Ah yes! I forgot about all those Christians who are raping girls and then simply paying off their fathers, or beating children against rocks, the ones who have slaves, all those Christians goin out and killing EVERYONE, and all those selling their young daughter. My bad. lol. Seriously dude? The point is, these verses are taken out of context. Psalms 137:9 is a SONG about the fall of Jericoh, NOT THE WORD OF GOD. 1 Timothy 2:12 was to establish family roles, that a woman not not teach or lord over men (not cool, but come on, its better than what the situation was). Deuteronomy 22:28 goes on to say that the man must marry that woman because he has violated her (in those times, if a woman was unmarried and not a virgin, she would most likely be stoned to death). Leviticus 25:44 says you are to buy slaves from other countries and not your own people (slavery was a social norm then and this prevented Christians from enslaving other Christians). Jeremiah 48:10 was about Moab who was systematically destroying the Israelites and God called the Israelites to defend themselves and take em out. Ezikiel 9:5 another quote about takin out people who wanted to take the Israelites out. Exodus 21:7 said in a time when women were basically considered property, its part of our history, get the hell over it already. Ezekiel 21:33 another quote from a war. Numbers 25:4 after numerous warnings, the hebrews who were naughty, got ended. Sorry. Shit happens. The point its #1- Look that the time in history this is from! From a time when raping and pillaging were normal, women were nothing, and it was kill or be killed. Stop taking verses out of context and rubbing them in people’s faces. Look, I get it. There are a lot of messed up, crappy Christians.But look at it this way, if a Christian group pickets a Gay rights event, there is outrage and hysteria. But Atheists and misquote Christian(Jewish) verses, place them on billboards and freak out on religious people for it and thats totes cool.Yea. My bad. I reeeaaally should have thought about it more huh?
Literally none of this sounded any better in context. How about instead of trying to defend every single aspect of the bible we just admit that parts of the bible are really really shitty? And teaching someone not to rape by threatening to make them marry or pay isn’t a “basic” rule are you kidding me it’s sexist and apologetic as shit. These are grown ass adults we are talking about and if my dog understands no then these grown ass men sure as hell can.
