Quotes from the Christian Bible

It's often said that the best way to make a Christian convert to atheism is simply to ask them to read the Bible. This is a selection of verses that show why.

"The things that you're liable
To read in the Bible,
They ain't necessarily so."

— from Porgy and Bess, by George and Ira Gershwin

"Most people are bothered by those passages of Scripture they do not understand,
but the passages that bother me are those I do understand."

— Mark Twain




THE STORY OF JESUS' BIRTH AND FAMILY

  1. WHEN WAS JESUS BORN? - Matthew 2:1 (NIV)
    After Jesus was born in Bethlehem in Judea, during the time of King Herod, Magi from the east came to Jerusalem and asked, "Where is the one who has been born king of the Jews? We saw his star in the east and have come to worship him.".
    [NOTES: King Herod the Great died about 4 BCE. If the Magi came from the east, they would have been going westward.]

  2. WHEN WAS JESUS BORN? - Luke 2:1-3 (NIV)
    In those days Caesar Augustus issued a decree that a census should be taken of the entire Roman world. (This was the first census that took place while Quirinius/Cyrenius was governor of Syria.) And everyone went to his own town to register.
    [NOTE: This census took place in 6 CE.]

  3. WHO WAS JESUS' GRANDFATHER? - Matthew 1:16
    Jacob the father of Joseph, the husband of Mary, of whom was born Jesus, who is called Christ.
    [NOTE: Matthew's list differs from the list of David's descendants in 1 Chronicles 3.]

  4. WHO WAS JESUS' GRANDFATHER? - Luke 3:23-24
    Now Jesus himself was about thirty years old when he began his ministry. He was the son, so it was thought, of Joseph, the son of Heli ...
    [NOTE: Luke's list also differs from 1 Chronicles 3.]

  5. WHO WAS JESUS' FATHER? - Matthew 1:20
    But after he had considered this, an angel of the Lord appeared to him in a dream and said, "Joseph son of David, do not be afraid to take Mary home as your wife, because what is conceived in her is from the Holy Spirit."

  6. PAUL, ON WHO WAS JESUS' FATHER? - Romans 1:3 (KJV)
    "Concerning his Son Jesus Christ our Lord, which was made of the seed of David according to the flesh;"

  7. PAUL, ON WHO WAS JESUS' FATHER? - 1 Corinthians 1:9 (NIV)
    "God, who has called you into fellowship with his Son Jesus Christ our Lord, is faithful."

  8. HOW WAS JESUS CONCEIVED? - Acts 2:30 (KJV)
    Therefore being a prophet, and knowing that God had sworn with an oath to him, that of the fruit of his loins, according to the flesh, he would raise up Christ to sit on his throne;

  9. PAUL, ON WHO WAS JESUS' ANCESTOR? - Galatians 3:16 (NIV)
    "The promises were spoken to Abraham and to his seed."
    [NOTE: Paul did not say "to his seeds," meaning many people, but "to his seed," meaning one person, Christ. Galatians 3:16, Acts 2:30 and Romans 1:3 negate the virgin birth idea.]

  10. WHERE WAS JESUS BORN? HOW WAS JESUS CONCEIVED? - Matthew 1:18-25
    This is how the birth of Jesus Christ came about: His mother Mary was pledged to be married to Joseph, but before they came together, she was found to be with child through the Holy Spirit. Because Joseph her husband was a righteous man and did not want to expose her to public disgrace, he had in mind to divorce her quietly. But after he had considered this, an angel of the Lord appeared to him in a dream and said, "Joseph son of David, do not be afraid to take Mary home as your wife, because what is conceived in her is from the Holy Spirit. She will give birth to a son, and you are to give him the name Jesus, because he will save his people from their sins." All this took place to fulfill what the Lord had said through the prophet: "The virgin will be with child and will give birth to a son, and they will call him Immanuel" — which means, "God with us." When Joseph woke up, he did what the angel of the Lord had commanded him and took Mary home as his wife. But he had no union with her until she gave birth to a son. And he gave him the name Jesus.
    NOTES:
    • The supposed prophesy, in Isaiah 7:14, was for its time, not for Jesus (about 700 years in the future).
    • Isaiah 7:14 referred to a young woman ('almah'), not a virgin ('betulot').
    • 2 Chronicles 28 shows that King Ahaz (who received the prophesy from Isaiah) was later defeated — negating Isaiah's prophesy.
    • Matthew has Jesus born in the Bethlehem home of Joseph, where the family stays for about two years.
    • They never called Jesus "Immanuel" in the Bible.

  11. WHERE WAS JESUS BORN? - Luke 2:4-7 (NIV)
    So Joseph also went up from the town of Nazareth in Galilee to Judea, to Bethlehem the town of David, because he belonged to the house and line of David. He went there to register with Mary, who was pledged to be married to him and was expecting a child. While they were there, the time came for the baby to be born, and she gave birth to her firstborn, a son.
    [NOTE: Luke has Jesus born in a stable, the traditional location. The family went to Jerusalem about eight days later, then returned to Nazareth. There were no Maji.]



JESUS ON THEFT

  1. JESUS ON THEFT, AND WORKING ON THE SABBATH - Matthew 12:1 (NIV)
    At that time Jesus went through the grainfields on the Sabbath. His disciples were hungry and began to pick some heads of grain and eat them.

  2. JESUS ON THEFT - Matthew 21:2
    "Go to the village ahead of you, and at once you will find a donkey tied there, with her colt by her. Untie them and bring them to me."

  3. JESUS ON THEFT - Mark 11:2 [same as Luke 19:30]
    "Go to the village ahead of you, and just as you enter it, you will find a colt tied there, which no one has ever ridden. Untie it and bring it here."



DID JESUS FULFILL PROPHESY?

NOTES:
Since the story of Jesus is either partially or totally fictional, when the gospels were written after about 70 CE (see Mark 13:2, below), prophesy could be “fulfilled” by just adding it to the story — and they still couldn't always get it right.

There is no evidence of a town of Nazareth in Galilee existing in the first half of the first century, even tho it's mentioned dozens of times in the New Testament. The unknown author of Matthew got "Nazarene" (a person from Nazareth) confused with "Nazirite" (one who lives apart and has made a vow of abstinence).

Jesus was said to have been born in Bethlehem to (incorrectly) fulfill Micah 5:2; Jesus was from Nazareth to (incorrectly) fulfill Judges 13:5; his family had to go to Egypt to (incorrectly) fulfill Hosea 11:1; and he rode two animals at once to (incorrectly) fulfill Zechariah 9:9.

  1. “TRUE” PROPHESY - Mark 13:2
    "Do you see all these great buildings?" replied Jesus. "Not one stone here will be left on another; every one will be thrown down."
    [NOTE: This probably refers to the destruction of Jerusalem, in 70 CE. Most scholars think that it was written after the fact.]

  2. THE PROPHESIED COMING OF ISRAEL'S RULER - Micah 5:2 (NIV)
    But you, Bethlehem Ephrathah, though you are small among the clans of Judah, out of you will come for me one who will be ruler over Israel, whose origins are from of old, from ancient times.

  3. WHERE WAS JESUS BORN? - Matthew 2:1 (NIV)
    After Jesus was born in Bethlehem in Judea, ...
    [NOTE: Jesus was never ruler over Israel.]

  4. THE PROPHESIED COMING OF ZION'S KING - Zechariah 9:9 (NIV)
    Rejoice greatly, O Daughter of Zion! Shout, Daughter of Jerusalem! See, your king comes to you, righteous and having salvation, gentle and riding on a donkey, on a colt, the foal of a donkey.
    [NOTE: This actually meant one animal.]

  5. JESUS RIDES TWO ANIMALS AT ONCE! - Matthew 21:7
    They brought the donkey and the colt, placed their cloaks on them, and Jesus sat on them.
    [NOTE: This impossible story resulted from a mistranslation of Zechariah 9:9.]

  6. THE PROPHESIED NAZIRITE - Judges 13:5 (NIV)
    " ... because you will conceive and give birth to a son. No razor may be used on his head, because the boy is to be a Nazirite, set apart to God from birth, and he will begin the deliverance of Israel from the hands of the Philistines."
    [NOTE: This actually referred to Samson, not Jesus (about 1100 years later).]

  7. NAZARETH, NAZARENE, NAZIRITE CONFUSED - Matthew 2:23 (NIV)
    ... and [Joseph] went and lived in a town called Nazareth. So was fulfilled what was said through the prophets: "He will be called a Nazarene."
    [NOTE: There is no mention of Nazareth or Nazarene in the Old Testament, just Nazirite in Judges 13:5.]

  8. ISRAEL (JESUS?) IN EGYPT - Hosea 11:1 (NIV)
    "When Israel was a child, I [God] loved him, and out of Egypt I called my son."
    [NOTE: This denotes a past event, not one over 700 years later. It likely referred to the purported exodus of the Jews from Egypt.]

  9. JESUS IN EGYPT - Matthew 2:13-15 (NIV)
    When they had gone, an angel of the Lord appeared to Joseph in a dream. "Get up," he said, "take the child and his mother and escape to Egypt. Stay there until I tell you, for Herod is going to search for the child to kill him." So he got up, took the child and his mother during the night and left for Egypt, where he stayed until the death of Herod. And so was fulfilled what the Lord had said through the prophet: "Out of Egypt I called my son."

  10. JESUS NOT IN EGYPT - Luke 2:39 (NIV)
    When Joseph and Mary had done everything required by the Law of the Lord, they returned to Galilee to their own town of Nazareth.

  11. PROPHESY OF HEROD'S “SLAUGHTER OF THE INNOCENTS” - Jeremiah 31:15 (NIV)
    This is what the LORD says: "A voice is heard in Ramah, mourning and great weeping, Rachel weeping for her children and refusing to be comforted, because her children are no more."
    [NOTE: Matthew 2:18 refers to this, but Ramah was on the other side of Jerusalem from Bethlehem. Also, a 600 year-old tale of one woman weeping for her children hardly conveys the magnitude of the supposed slaughter.]

  12. HEROD'S “SLAUGHTER OF THE INNOCENTS” - Matthew 2:16 (NIV)
    When Herod realized that he had been outwitted by the Magi, he was furious, and he gave orders to kill all the boys in Bethlehem and its vicinity who were two years old and under
    [NOTE: Herod's “slaughter of the innocents” is not mentioned by any historian of the time, or in any other gospel. However, it fulfilled a common story line for religious saviors.]

  13. CRUCIFICTION FORETOLD? - Psalm 22:16 (NIV)
    Dogs have surrounded me; a band of evil men has encircled me, they have pierced my hands and my feet.

  14. JUDAS' PAYMENT FORETOLD? - Zechariah 11:12
    I told them, "If you think it best, give me my pay; but if not, keep it." So they paid me thirty pieces of silver.



FALSE PROPHESY AND FALSE PROPHETS

NOTE: If Jesus had actually told his disciples that he would resurrect after the crucifixion, why were they so upset when he was arrested, and dubious when he supposedly really did come back?

  1. FALSE PROPHESY - Isaiah 7:14 (NIV)
    Therefore the Lord himself will give you [King Ahaz] a sign: The virgin will be with child and will give birth to a son, and will call him Immanuel.
    [NOTE: The original word ('almah') in Hebrew meant maiden, not virgin ('betulot'). Also, the context shows that this was meant for its time, not about 700 years later.]

  2. FALSE PROPHESY - 2 Chronicles 28:5 (NIV)
    Therefore the LORD his God handed [King Ahaz] over to the king of Aram. The Arameans defeated [King Ahaz] and took many of his people as prisoners and brought them to Damascus.
    [NOTE: This shows that the sign of the prophesy in Isaiah 7:14 (above) failed even in its time.]

  3. FALSE PROPHESY - Matthew 1:23
    The virgin will be with child and will give birth to a son, and they will call him Immanuel — which means, "God with us."
    [NOTE: They never called Jesus "Immanuel." The author of Matthew was really reaching when he created this “prophesy” from Isaiah 7:14.]

  4. FALSE PROPHESY: JESUS PREDICTS HIS RETURN - Matthew 10:23 [We're still waiting.]
    "I tell you the truth, you will not finish going through the cities of Israel before the Son of Man comes."

  5. FALSE PROPHESY: JESUS PREDICTS HIS CHURCH WILL LAST - Matthew 16:18 (NIV) [There've been many "true churches" that have come and gone.]
    And I tell you that you are Peter, and on this rock I will build my church, and the gates of Hades will not overcome it.

  6. FALSE PROPHESY: JESUS PREDICTS HIS RETURN - Matthew 16:28 [We're still waiting.]
    "I tell you the truth, some who are standing here will not taste death before they see the Son of Man coming in his kingdom."

  7. FALSE PROPHESY: JESUS PREDICTS HIS RETURN - Matthew 24:34 (same as Mark 13:30) [We're still waiting.]
    "I tell you the truth, this generation will certainly not pass away until all these things have happened."

  8. FALSE PROPHESY: JESUS PREDICTS THREE DAYS AND NIGHTS IN THE TOMB - Matthew 12:40 [Not a day and a half!]
    "For as Jonah was three days and three nights in the belly of a huge fish, so the Son of Man will be three days and three nights in the heart of the earth."

  9. FALSE PROPHESY: JESUS PREDICTS NO MIRACULOUS SIGN - Mark 8:12 (NIV)
    [Jesus] sighed deeply and said, "Why does this generation ask for a miraculous sign? I tell you the truth, no sign will be given to it."

  10. FALSE PROPHESY: JESUS PREDICTS THREE DAYS IN THE TOMB - Mark 8:31
    [Jesus] then began to teach them that the Son of Man must suffer many things and be rejected by the elders, chief priests and teachers of the law, and that he must be killed and after three days rise again.

  11. FALSE PROPHESY: JESUS PREDICTS KINGDOM OF GOD - Mark 9:1 [We're still waiting.]
    And [Jesus] said to them, "I tell you the truth, some who are standing here will not taste death before they see the kingdom of God come with power."

  12. FALSE PROPHESY: JESUS PREDICTS THE END OF THE WORLD - Luke 21:25-33 (NLT) [We're still waiting.]
    "And there will be strange events in the skies – signs in the sun, moon, and stars. And down here on earth the nations will be in turmoil, perplexed by the roaring seas and strange tides. The courage of many people will falter because of the fearful fate they see coming upon the earth, because the stability of the very heavens will be broken up. Then everyone will see the Son of Man arrive on the clouds with power and great glory. So when all these things begin to happen, stand straight and look up, for your salvation is near! Then he gave them this illustration: "Notice the fig tree, or any other tree. When the leaves come out, you know without being told that summer is near. Just so, when you see the events I've described taking place, you can be sure that the Kingdom of God is near. I assure you, this generation will not pass from the scene until all these events have taken place. Heaven and earth will disappear, but my words will remain forever"

  13. FALSE PROPHESY: PAUL PREDICTS JESUS' RETURN - Hebrews 10:37
    "For in just a very little while, He who is coming will come and will not delay."

  14. FALSE PROPHESY - John 3:13 (KJV) [See 2 Kings 2:11, next.]
    "And no man hath ascended up to heaven, but he that came down from heaven, even the Son of man which is in heaven."

  15. ELIJAH WENT TO HEAVEN - 2 Kings 2:11 (KJV)
    And it came to pass, as they still went on, and talked, that, behold, there appeared a chariot of fire, and horses of fire, and parted them both asunder; and Elijah went up by a whirlwind into heaven.



FAILED PROPHESY

  1. FAILED PROPHESY - 2 Chronicles 7:18
    [God] said, "You shall never fail to have a man to rule over Israel."



GOD, JEREMIAH, JESUS, JOHN, PAUL, & JOHN THE REVELATOR ON FALSE PROPHETS

  1. GOD, ON FALSE PROPHETS - Deuteronomy 18:21,22
    You may say to yourselves, "How can we know when a message has not been spoken by the LORD?" If what a prophet proclaims in the name of the LORD does not take place or come true, that is a message the LORD has not spoken. That prophet has spoken presumptuously. Do not be afraid of him.

  2. JEREMIAH, ON FALSE PROPHETS - Jeremiah 8:10 (NIV)
    "From the least to the greatest, all are greedy for gain; prophets and priests alike, all practice deceit."

  3. JESUS, ON FALSE PROPHETS - Matthew 7:15
    "Beware of false prophets, who come to you in sheep's clothing, but inwardly are ravening wolves."

  4. JESUS, ON FALSE PROPHETS - Matthew 7:22-23

  5. JESUS, ON FALSE PROPHETS - Matthew 24:23-24
    "Then if any man shall say to you Lo, here is the Christ, or, Here, believe it not. For there shall arise false Christs and false prophets and shall show great signs and wonders, so as to lead astray, if possible, even the very elect."

  6. JOHN, ON FALSE PROPHETS - 1 John 4:1
    "Beloved, believe not every spirit, but prove the spirits, whether they are of God: because many false prophets are gone out into the world."

  7. PETER, ON FALSE PROPHETS - 2 Peter 2:1
    "But there were also false prophets among the people, even as there will be false teachers among you, who will secretly bring in destructive heresies, even denying the Lord who bought them, and bring on themselves swift destruction."

  8. PETER, ON INTERPRETATION OF PROPHECY - 2 Peter 1:20-21 (KJV)
    "Knowing this first, that no prophecy of the scripture is of any private interpretation. For the prophecy came not in old time by the will of man: but holy men of God spake as they were moved by the Holy Ghost."

  9. PAUL, ON FALSE PROPHETS - Galatians 1:8
    "But even if we, or an angel from heaven, preach any other gospel to you than what we have preached to you, let him be accursed."

  10. PAUL, ON PETER - Galatians 2:11 (NIV)
    "When Peter came to Antioch, I opposed him to his face, because he was clearly in the wrong."

  11. PENALTY FOR FALSE PROPHET - Revelation 20:10
    And the devil, who deceived them, was thrown into the lake of burning sulfur, where the beast and the false prophet had been thrown. They will be tormented day and night for ever and ever.

  12. PENALTY FOR FALSE PROPHET - Revelation 22:18-19 (NIV)
    "I warn everyone who hears the words of the prophecy of this book: If anyone adds anything to them, God will add to him the plagues described in this book. And if anyone takes words away from this book of prophecy, God will take away from him his share in the tree of life and in the holy city, which are described in this book."

    "Heaven and earth will pass away, but My words will not pass away."

  2. JESUS ON TRUTH OF HIS TESTIMONY - John 5:31
    "If I testify about myself, my testimony is not valid."

    "He committed no sin, and no deceit was found in his mouth.."



JESUS ON PEACE AND FAMILY VALUES

  1. JESUS ON PEACE - Matthew 10:34
    "Do not suppose that I have come to bring peace to the earth. I did not come to bring peace, but a sword."

  2. JESUS ON PEACE - Matthew 26:52 (KJV)
    Then said Jesus unto him, "Put up again thy sword into his place: for all they that take the sword shall perish with the sword."

  3. JESUS ON PEACE - Luke 22:36
    He said to them, "But now if you have a purse, take it, and also a bag; and if you don't have a sword, sell your cloak and buy one."

  4. JESUS ON FAMILY VALUES - Matthew 8:21-22
    And another of his disciples said unto him, "Suffer me first to go and bury my father." But Jesus said unto him, "Follow me and let the dead bury their dead."

  5. JESUS ON FAMILY VALUES - Matthew 10:35-37
    "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. He that loveth father or mother more than me is not worthy of me; and he that loveth son or daughter more than me is not worthy of me."

  6. JESUS ON FAMILY VALUES - Matthew 12:46-50
    While he yet talked to the people, behold his mother and brethren stood without, desiring to speak with him. Then one said unto him, "Behold, thy mother and thy brethren stand without, desiring to speak with you." But he answered and said, "Who is my mother? and who are my brethren? And he stretched forth his hand towards his disciples, and said, "Behold, my mother and my brethren! For whoever shall do the will of my Father which is in heaven, the same is my brother, and sister, and mother."

  7. JESUS ON FAMILY VALUES - Matthew 19:29 (NIV)
    "And everyone who has left houses or brothers or sisters or father or mother or children or fields for my sake will receive a hundred times as much and will inherit eternal life."

  8. JESUS ON FAMILY VALUES - Mark 3:33-35
    "Who are my mother and my brothers?" [Jesus] asked. Then he looked at those seated in a circle around him and said, "Here are my mother and my brothers! Whoever does God's will is my brother and sister and mother."

  9. JESUS ON FAMILY VALUES - Luke 9:60
    "Let the dead bury their own dead, but you go and proclaim the kingdom of God."

  10. JESUS ON FAMILY VALUES - Luke 9:61,62
    Still another said, "I will follow you, Lord; but first let me go back and say good bye to my family." Jesus replied, "No one who puts his hand to the plow and looks back is fit for service in the kingdom of God."

  11. JESUS ON FAMILY VALUES AND PEACE - Luke 12:49-53
    "I have come to bring fire on the earth, and how I wish it were already kindled! But I have a baptism to undergo, and how distressed I am until it is completed! Do you think I came to bring peace on earth? No, I tell you, but division. From now on there will be five in one family divided against each other, three against two and two against three. They will be divided, father against son and son against father, mother against daughter and daughter against mother, mother-in-law against daughter-in-law and daughter-in-law against mother-in-law."

  12. JESUS ON FAMILY VALUES - Luke 14:26 [What about John 3:15 and 4:19-21 (below)?]
    "If anyone comes to me and does not hate his father and mother, his wife and children, his brothers and sisters — yes, even his own life — he cannot be my disciple."
    [NOTE: Buybull thumpers often say that this doesn't really mean “hate,” it just means “love less.” Some translations even word it like that (e.g. Contemporary English Version), because they don't like that nasty word “hate.” The original Greek word “miseo” always means hate; it has no alternative meaning. The prefixes for misanthropy and misogyny come from miseo. This just shows how screwed-up their minds are. If hate equals a form of love, how can we trust anything that those translations say?]

  13. JESUS ON FAMILY VALUES - Luke 19:27 [In the words of a king in a parable.]
    "But those enemies of mine who did not want me to be king over them — bring them here and kill them in front of me."

  14. JESUS ON FAMILY VALUES - John 2:4
    Jesus saith unto [his mother], "Woman, what have I to do with thee? Mine hour is not yet come."

  15. JESUS ON FAMILY VALUES - John 12:25
    "The man who loves his life will lose it, while the man who hates his life in this world will keep it for eternal life."

  16. JESUS ON FAMILY VALUES - John 15:6 (KJV)
    "If a man abide not in me, he is cast forth as a branch, and is withered; and men gather them, and cast them into the fire, and they are burned."

  17. JOHN ON FAMILY VALUES - 1 John 3:15 [What about Luke 14:26 (above)?]
    "Anyone who hates his brother is a murderer, and you know that no murderer has eternal life in him."

  18. JOHN ON FAMILY VALUES - 1 John 4:19-21 [What about Luke 14:26 (above)?]
    "We love because he first loved us. If anyone says, 'I love God,' yet hates his brother, he is a liar. For anyone who does not love his brother, whom he has seen, cannot love God, whom he has not seen. And he has given us this command: Whoever loves God must also love his brother."

  19. JOHN ON FAMILY VALUES - 2 John 1:7
    Many deceivers, who do not acknowledge Jesus Christ as coming in the flesh, have gone out into the world. Any such person is the deceiver and the antichrist.

[NOTE: The "FAMILY VALUES" verses above also show a classic method that cults use to separate followers from their families and friends. With a follower's normal connections to reality severed, the cult has a better chance to indoctrinate and keep the follower in line.]



CANNIBALISM AND VAMPIRISM!

[NOTE: See the biblical death penalty for those who eat blood.]

  1. CANNIBALISM - Deuteronomy 28:57
    And toward her young one that cometh out from between her feet, and toward her children which she shall bear: for she shall eat them.

  2. CANNIBALISM - 2 Kings 6:28-29
    And the king said unto her, "What aileth thee?" And she answered, "This woman said unto me, Give thy son, that we may eat him today, and we will eat my son tomorrow. So we boiled my son, and did eat him: and I said unto her on the next day, Give thy son, that we may eat him: and she hath hid her son."

  3. CANNIBALISM AND VAMPIRISM - Ezekiel 39:18 (KJV)
    Ye shall eat the flesh of the mighty, and drink the blood of the princes of the earth, of rams, of lambs, and of goats, of bullocks, all of them fatlings of Bashan.

  4. CANNIBALISM AND VAMPIRISM - Isaiah 49:26
    "I [God] will make your oppressors eat their own flesh; they will be drunk on their own blood, as with wine. Then all mankind will know that I, the LORD, am your Savior, your Redeemer, the Mighty One of Jacob."

  5. JESUS ADVOCATES RITUAL CANNIBALISM - Matthew 26:26
    And while they were eating, Jesus took some bread, and after a blessing, He broke it and gave it to the disciples, and said, "Take, eat; this is My body."

  6. JESUS ADVOCATES RITUAL CANNIBALISM AND VAMPIRISM - Luke 22:19-20
    And when He had taken some bread and given thanks, He broke it, and gave it to them, saying, "This is My body which is given for you; do this in remembrance of Me." And in the same way He took the cup after they had eaten, saying, "This cup which is poured out for you is the new covenant in My blood."

  7. JESUS ADVOCATES RITUAL CANNIBALISM AND VAMPIRISM - John 6:53-57 (NIV)
    Jesus said to them, "I tell you the truth, unless you eat the flesh of the Son of Man and drink his blood, you have no life in you. Whoever eats my flesh and drinks my blood has eternal life, and I will raise him up at the last day. For my flesh is real food and my blood is real drink. Whoever eats my flesh and drinks my blood remains in me, and I in him. Just as the living Father sent me and I live because of the Father, so the one who feeds on me will live because of me."

  8. JESUS ADVOCATES RITUAL CANNIBALISM AND VAMPIRISM - 1 Corinthians 11:23-25
    The Lord Jesus, on the night he was betrayed, took bread, and when he had given thanks, he broke it and said, "This is my body, which is for you; do this in remembrance of me." In the same way, after supper he took the cup, saying, "This cup is the new covenant in my blood; do this, whenever you drink it, in remembrance of me."

PAUL ON JESUS, THE GOSPEL, THE RESURRECTION, JUDGMENT, NONBELIEVERS

  1. PAUL ON JESUS - Hebrews 8:4 (NIV) [Paul thought of Jesus as a sky god.]
    "If he were on earth, he would not be a priest, for there are already men who offer the gifts prescribed by the law."

  2. PAUL ON JESUS - Hebrews 13:8 (NIV)
    "Jesus Christ is the same yesterday and today and forever."
    [For camparison, see JESUS ON TRUTH OF HIS TESTIMONY.]

  3. PAUL ON THE SOURCE OF THE JESUS STORY - Galatians 1:11,12
    "I want you to know, brothers, that the gospel I preached is not something that man made up. I did not receive it from any man, nor was I taught it; rather, I received it by revelation from Jesus Christ."
    [NOTE: It can easily be argued that this means that Paul made it up, or derived his ideas from Jewish scripture and other religions.]

  4. PAUL ON THE DEATH OF JESUS - Ephesians 5:1-2
    "Be imitators of God, therefore, as dearly loved children and live a life of love, just as Christ loved us and gave himself up for us as a fragrant offering and sacrifice to God."

  5. PAUL ON THE RESURRECTION - 1 Corinthians 15:13-19 (NIV)
    "If there is no resurrection of the dead, then not even Christ has been raised. And if Christ has not been raised, our preaching is useless and so is your faith. More than that, we are then found to be false witnesses about God, for we have testified about God that he raised Christ from the dead. But he did not raise him if in fact the dead are not raised. For if the dead are not raised, then Christ has not been raised either. And if Christ has not been raised, your faith is futile; you are still in your sins. Then those also who have fallen asleep in Christ are lost. If only for this life we have hope in Christ, we are to be pitied more than all men."
    [NOTE: Why didn't Paul mention the empty tomb? Was it because that story didn't exist yet?]

  6. PAUL, PETER & JOHN ON LYING - Romans 3:5-8 (KJV)
    "But if our unrighteousness commend the righteousness of God, what shall we say? Is God unrighteous who taketh vengeance? (I speak as a man) God forbid: for then how shall God judge the world? For if the truth of God hath more abounded through my lie unto his glory; why yet am I also judged as a sinner? And not rather, (as we be slanderously reported, and as some affirm that we say,) Let us do evil, that good may come? whose damnation is just."

    "Rather, we have renounced secret and shameful ways; we do not use deception, nor do we distort the word of God."

  8. PAUL ON PASSING JUDGMENT - Romans 2:1
    "You, therefore, have no excuse, you who pass judgment on someone else, for at whatever point you judge the other, you are condemning yourself, because you who pass judgment do the same things."

  9. PAUL DOESN'T KNOW ABOUT PILATE - Romans 13:3
    "For rulers hold no terror for those who do right, but for those who do wrong."

  12. PAUL ON EVILDOERS - 1 Corinthians 6:9,10 (KJV)
    "Know ye not that the unrighteous shall not inherit the kingdom of God? Be not deceived: neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor effeminate, nor abusers of themselves with mankind, Nor thieves, nor covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor extortioners, shall inherit the kingdom of God."

  13. PAUL ON NONBELIEVERS AND HELL - 2 Thessalonians 1:6-9
    "God is just: He will pay back trouble to those who trouble you and give relief to you who are troubled, and to us as well. This will happen when the Lord Jesus is revealed from heaven in blazing fire with his powerful angels. He will punish those who do not know God and do not obey the gospel of our Lord Jesus. They will be punished with everlasting destruction and shut out from the presence of the Lord and from the majesty of his power."

    "Prove all things; hold fast that which is good."

  15. PAUL ON MYTHS - 1 Timothy 1:4 (NIV)

  16. PAUL ON SCIENCE - 1 Timothy 6:20 (KJV)
    "O Timothy, keep that which is committed to thy trust, avoiding profane and vain babblings, and oppositions of science falsely so called."

  17. PAUL ON PLANTS - 1 Corinthians 15:36-38 (NIV)
    "How foolish! What you sow does not come to life unless it dies."
    [NOTE: Seeds don't die when they sprout. They grow into a plant.]

  18. PAUL ON CONTROVERSIES, GENEALOGIES, ARGUMENTS AND QUARRELS - Titus 3:9(NIV)
    "But avoid foolish controversies and genealogies and arguments and quarrels about the law, because these are unprofitable and useless."

  19. PETER ON BLASPHEMERS - 2 Peter 2:12

  20. JOHN ON HOW TO TREAT NONBELIEVERS - 1 John 2:22 (NIV)

  21. JOHN ON HOW TO TREAT NONBELIEVERS - 2 John 1 10-11
    If there come any unto you, and bring not this doctrine, receive him not into your house, neither bid him God speed: For he that biddeth him God speed is partaker of his evil deeds.

  13. INFALLIBILITY OF SCRIPTURE - 2 Peter 1:20-21 (NIV)

  6. PAUL ON JEWS - Galatians 3:10-11 (NIV)

MARRIAGE, DIVORCE, WOMEN, HOMOSEXUALITY

[NOTE: There is nowhere in the Bible that clearly states "one man and one woman" or "monogamy" or any words to that effect, but references to abstinence and polygamy are plentiful. Also, contrast Deuteronomy 24:1-4 with the NT verses below that prohibit divorce.]
  1. GOD ON RAPE AND MARRIAGE - Deuteronomy 22:28-29
    If a man find a damsel that is a virgin, which is not betrothed, and lay hold on her, and lie with her, and they be found; Then the man that lay with her shall give unto the damsel's father fifty shekels of silver, and she shall be his wife; because he hath humbled her, he may not put her away all his days.

  2. GOD ON DIVORCE - Deuteronomy 24:1-4 (NIV)
    If a man marries a woman who becomes displeasing to him because he finds something indecent about her, and he writes her a certificate of divorce, gives it to her and sends her from his house, and if after she leaves his house she becomes the wife of another man, and her second husband dislikes her and writes her a certificate of divorce, gives it to her and sends her from his house, or if he dies, then her first husband, who divorced her, is not allowed to marry her again after she has been defiled.

  3. MARRIAGE TO SERVANT - 1 Chronicles 2:34,35
    Sheshan had no sons—only daughters. He had an Egyptian servant named Jarha. Sheshan gave his daughter in marriage to his servant Jarha, and she bore him Attai.

  4. JESUS ON MARRIAGE - Matthew 19:29
    "And every one who hath forsaken houses, or brethren, or sisters, or father, or mother, or wife, or children, or lands, for my sake, shall receive an hundredfold, and shall inherit everlasting life."

  5. JESUS ON MARRIAGE - Luke 20:34-36 (KJV)
    "The children of this world marry, and are given in marriage: But they which shall be accounted worthy to obtain that world, and the resurrection from the dead, neither marry, nor are given in marriage: Neither can they die any more: for they are equal unto the angels; and are the children of God, being the children of the resurrection."

  6. JESUS ON DIVORCE - Matthew 5:32 (NIV)
    "But I tell you that anyone who divorces his wife, except for marital unfaithfulness, causes her to become an adulteress, and anyone who marries the divorced woman commits adultery."

    "Anyone who divorces his wife and marries another woman commits adultery against her. And if she divorces her husband and marries another man, she commits adultery."

    "Anyone who divorces his wife and marries another woman commits adultery, and the man who marries a divorced woman commits adultery."

  9. PAUL ON MARRIAGE - 1 Corinthians 7:1-2 (KJV)
    "Now concerning the things whereof ye wrote unto me: It is good for a man not to touch a woman. Nevertheless, to avoid fornication, let every man have his own wife, and let every woman have her own husband."

  10. PAUL ON MARRIAGE - 1 Corinthians 7:8-9 (NIV)
    "Now to the unmarried and the widows I say: It is good for them to stay unmarried, as I am. But if they cannot control themselves, they should marry, for it is better to marry than to burn with passion."

  11. PAUL ON MARRIAGE & DIVORCE - 1 Corinthians 7:10-11 (NIV)
    "To the married I give this command (not I, but the Lord): A wife must not separate from her husband. But if she does, she must remain unmarried or else be reconciled to her husband. And a husband must not divorce his wife."
    [Of course, we have to take Paul's word on this — that this is what the Lord commanded.]

  12. PAUL ON MARRIAGE & DIVORCE - 1 Corinthians 7:27 (NIV)
    "Are you married? Do not seek a divorce. Are you unmarried? Do not look for a wife."

  13. PAUL ON DIVORCE - Romans 7:3 (NIV)
    "So then, if she marries another man while her husband is still alive, she is called an adulteress. But if her husband dies, she is released from that law and is not an adulteress, even though she marries another man."

  14. PAUL ON WOMEN - 1 Timothy 2:9
    "In like manner also, that women adorn themselves in modest apparel, with shame-facedness and sobriety; not with broided [braided] hair, or gold, or pearls, or costly array."

  15. PAUL ON WOMEN - 1 Timothy 2:11-15
    "A woman should learn [from men] in quietness and full submission. I do not permit a woman to teach or to have authority over a man; she must be silent. For Adam was formed first, then Eve. And Adam was not the one deceived; it was the woman who was deceived and became a sinner. But women will be saved through childbearing—if they continue in faith, love and holiness with propriety."

  16. PAUL ON WOMEN - 1 Corinthians 11:3
    "I would have you know that the head of every man is Christ; and the head of the woman is the man; and the head of Christ is God."

  17. PAUL ON WOMEN - 1 Corinthians 11:9-10
    "For man did not come from woman, but woman from man; neither was man created for woman, but woman for man. For this reason, and because of the angels, the woman ought to have a sign of authority on her head."

  18. PAUL ON WOMEN - 1 Corinthians 14:34-35
    "Let your women keep silence in the churches: for it is not permitted unto them to speak; but they are commanded to be under obedience, as also saith the law. And if they will learn any thing, let them ask their husbands at home: for it is a shame for women to speak in the church."

  19. PAUL ON WOMEN - Ephesians 5:22-24 (NIV)
    "Wives, submit to your husbands as to the Lord. For the husband is the head of the wife as Christ is the head of the church, his body, of which he is the Savior. Now as the church submits to Christ, so also wives should submit to their husbands in everything."

  20. PAUL ON WOMEN - Colossians 3:18 (NIV)
    "Wives, submit to your husbands, as is fitting in the Lord."

  21. PETER ON WOMEN - 1 Peter 3:1-2 (NAB)
    "Likewise, you wives should be subordinate to your husbands so that, even if some disobey the word, they may be won over without a word by their wives' conduct when they observe your reverent and chaste behavior. Your beauty should not come from outward adornment, such as braided hair and the wearing of gold jewelry and fine clothes."



LUST!

  1. ANGELS LUSTED - Genesis 6:2,4
    That the sons of God saw the daughters of men that they were fair; and they took them wives of all which they chose... There were giants in the earth in those days; and also after that, when the sons of God came in unto the daughters of men, and they bare children to them, the same became mighty men which were of old, men of renown.

  2. KING DAVID LUSTED AND COMMITTED ADULTERY - 2 Samuel 11:2-4
    One evening David got up from his bed and walked around on the roof of the palace. From the roof he saw a woman bathing. The woman was very beautiful, and David sent someone to find out about her. The man said, "Isn't this Bathsheba, the daughter of Eliam and the wife of Uriah the Hittite?" Then David sent messengers to get her. She came to him, and he slept with her.

  3. JESUS ON LUST - Matthew 5:28
    "But I tell you that anyone who looks at a woman lustfully has already committed adultery with her in his heart."
    [NOTE: See Matthew 5:29-30 and Mark 9:43-48 (below) for what to do if this happens.]

  4. PAUL ON LUST AND GREED - Colossians 3:5
    "Put to death, therefore, whatever belongs to your earthly nature: sexual immorality, impurity, lust, evil desires and greed, which is idolatry."

  5. PAUL ON LUST - Romans 1:24
    "Therefore God gave them over in the sinful desires of their hearts to sexual impurity for the degrading of their bodies with one another."

  6. PAUL ON LUST - 1 Corinthians 7:29 (NIV)
    "What I mean, brothers, is that the time is short. From now on those who have wives should live as if they had none;"
    [NOTE: This obviously means no sex for married men!]

  7. PAUL ON ANGELS' LUST - 1 Corinthians 11:10 (KJV)
    "For this cause ought the woman to have power on her head because of the angels."

  8. PETER ON LUST - 2 Peter 1:4

  4. POLYGAMY AND EXTRAMARITAL SEX - Genesis 30:3-10
    Then she [Rachel] said, "Here is Bilhah, my maidservant. Sleep with her so that she can bear children for me and that through her I too can build a family." So she gave him her servant Bilhah as a wife. Jacob slept with her, and she became pregnant and bore him a son. Then Rachel said, "God has vindicated me; he has listened to my plea and given me a son." Because of this she named him Dan. Rachel's servant Bilhah conceived again and bore Jacob a second son. Then Rachel said, "I have had a great struggle with my sister, and I have won." So she named him Naphtali. When Leah saw that she had stopped having children, she took her maidservant Zilpah and gave her to Jacob as a wife. Leah's servant Zilpah bore Jacob a son.

    When a man sells his daughter as a slave, she will not be freed at the end of six years as the men are. If she does not please the man who bought her, he may allow her to be bought back again. But he is not allowed to sell her to foreigners, since he is the one who broke the contract with her. And if the slave girl's owner arranges for her to marry his son, he may no longer treat her as a slave girl, but he must treat her as his daughter. If he himself marries her and then takes another wife, he may not reduce her food or clothing or fail to sleep with her as his wife. If he fails in any of these three ways, she may leave as a free woman without making any payment.

  12. POLYGAMY - Deuteronomy 21:15-16

No descendant of Aaron the priest who has any defect is to come near to present the offerings made to the LORD by fire. He has a defect; he must not come near to offer the food of his God. He may eat the most holy food of his God, as well as the holy food; yet because of his defect, he must not go near the curtain or approach the altar, and so desecrate my sanctuary. I am the LORD, who makes them holy.

SLAVERY

[NOTE: “Slave” and “slavery” are mentioned at least 164 times in the Bible, but it never says that slavery is morally wrong. It just implies that slavery is undesirable.

  1. SLAVERY AND CHILD ABUSE - Genesis 9:22,24 (NIV)
    Ham, the father of Canaan, saw his father's nakedness and told his two brothers outside.

He also said, "Blessed be the LORD, the God of Shem! May Canaan be the slave of Shem. May God extend the territory of Japheth; may Japheth live in the tents of Shem, and may Canaan be his slave."

The man, however, must bring a ram as a guilt offering and present it to the Lord at the entrance of the Tabernacle.

  4. SLAVERY - Leviticus 25:44-46 (NIV)
    Your male and female slaves are to come from the nations around you; from them you may buy slaves. You may also buy some of the temporary residents living among you and members of their clans born in your country, and they will become your property. You can will them to your children as inherited property and can make them slaves for life, but you must not rule over your fellow Israelites ruthlessly.

  5. SLAVERY - Exodus 20:17 (NLT) (part of the Ten Commandments)

    "If you buy a Hebrew slave, he is to serve for only six years. Set him free in the seventh year, and he will owe you nothing for his freedom. If he was single when he became your slave and then married afterward, only he will go free in the seventh year. But if he was married before he became a slave, then his wife will be freed with him. If his master gave him a wife while he was a slave, and they had sons or daughters, then the man will be free in the seventh year, but his wife and children will still belong to his master. But the slave may plainly declare, 'I love my master, my wife, and my children. I would rather not go free.' If he does this, his master must present him before God. Then his master must take him to the door and publicly pierce his ear with an awl. After that, the slave will belong to his master forever."

  7. SLAVERY & POLYGAMY - Exodus 21:7-11 (NLT)
    When a man sells his daughter as a slave, she will not be freed at the end of six years as the men are. If she does not please the man who bought her, he may allow her to be bought back again. But he is not allowed to sell her to foreigners, since he is the one who broke the contract with her. And if the slave girl's owner arranges for her to marry his son, he may no longer treat her as a slave girl, but he must treat her as his daughter. If he himself marries her and then takes another wife, he may not reduce her food or clothing or fail to sleep with her as his wife. If he fails in any of these three ways, she may leave as a free woman without making any payment.

  8. SLAVERY - Exodus 21:20-21
    If a man beats his male or female slave with a rod and the slave dies as a direct result, he must be punished, but he is not to be punished if the slave gets up after a day or two, since the slave is his property.

  9. SLAVERY - Exodus 21:32

  18. SLAVERY, JESUS - Matthew 24:45-51 (NASB) [Jesus recommends killing slaves.]
    "Who then is the faithful and sensible slave whom his master put in charge of his household to give them their food at the proper time? Blessed is that slave whom his master finds so doing when he comes. Truly I say to you that he will put him in charge of all his possessions. But if that evil slave says in his heart, 'My master is not coming for a long time,' and begins to beat his fellow slaves and eat and drink with drunkards; the master of that slave will come on a day when he does not expect him and at an hour which he does not know, and will cut him in pieces and assign him a place with the hypocrites; in that place there will be weeping and gnashing of teeth.

  19. SLAVERY, JESUS - Luke 12:42-48 (NASB) [Jesus recommends killing and flogging slaves.]

"Blessed is that slave whom his master finds so doing when he comes. "Truly I say to you that he will put him in charge of all his possessions. "But if that slave says in his heart, 'My master will be a long time in coming,' and begins to beat the slaves, both men and women, and to eat and drink and get drunk; the master of that slave will come on a day when he does not expect him and at an hour he does not know, and will cut him in pieces, and assign him a place with the unbelievers. "And that slave who knew his master's will and did not get ready or act in accord with his will, will receive many lashes, but the one who did not know it, and committed deeds worthy of a flogging, will receive but few. From everyone who has been given much, much will be required; and to whom they entrusted much, of him they will ask all the more."

  28. SLAVERY, PAUL - 1 Timothy 6:1-2 (NLT)
    "Christians who are slaves should give their masters full respect so that the name of God and his teaching will not be shamed.

Teach these truths, Timothy, and encourage everyone to obey them."

  29. SLAVERY, PAUL - Galatians 3:28

When he reached it, he found nothing but leaves, because it was not the season for figs. Then he said to the tree, "May no one ever eat fruit from you again." ... In the morning, as they went along, they saw the fig tree withered from the roots.
    [NOTE: Is this the action of a sane man?]

    "You tolerate that woman Jezebel, who calls herself a prophetess. By her teaching she misleads my servants into sexual immorality and the eating of food sacrificed to idols.

So I will cast her on a bed of suffering, and I will make those who commit adultery with her suffer intensely, unless they repent of her ways. I will strike her children dead."



GOSPEL AUTHORS CONFUSED ABOUT GEOGRAPHY

  1. MARK CONFUSED ABOUT GEOGRAPHY, JESUS KILLS 2000 PIGS - Mark 5:1-2, 8-9, 11-13 (KJV)
    And they came over unto the other side of the sea, into the country of the Gadarenes [Gerasenes in NIV]. And when he was come out of the ship, immediately there met him out of the tombs a man with an unclean spirit.... For [Jesus] said unto him, "Come out of the man, thou unclean spirit." And he asked him, "What is thy name?" And he answered, saying, "My name is Legion, we are many."... Now there was nigh unto the mountains a great herd of swine feeding. And all the devils besought him, saying, "Send us into the swine, that we may enter into them." And forthwith Jesus gave them leave. And the unclean spirits went out, and entered into the swine: and the herd ran violently down a steep place into the sea, they were about two thousand and were choked in the sea.
    [NOTE: The original Greek text referred to the country of the Gerasenes, which was about 31 miles from the Sea of Galilee. The King James translators realized this, and changed the location to “Gadarenes” which was close to the sea. Later translators used the original. Also, the swine owner would not have been happy at their destruction.]

  2. LUKE CONFUSED ABOUT GEOGRAPHY - Luke 8:26 (KJV)

    Then Jesus left the vicinity of Tyre and went through Sidon, down to the Sea of Galilee and into the region of the Decapolis.

  5. MARK CONFUSED ABOUT GEOGRAPHY - Mark 8:10 (KJV)

  2. WAR - Deuteronomy 3:3-6 (NIV)
    So the LORD our God also gave into our hands Og king of Bashan and all his army. We struck them down, leaving no survivors. At that time we took all his cities. There was not one of the sixty cities that we did not take from them — the whole region of Argob, Og's kingdom in Bashan. All these cities were fortified with high walls and with gates and bars, and there were also a great many unwalled villages. We completely destroyed them, as we had done with Sihon king of Heshbon, destroying every city — men, women and children.

  3. WAR - Deuteronomy 20:10-18
    When you march up to attack a city, make its people an offer of peace. If they accept and open their gates, all the people in it shall be subject to forced labor and shall work for you. If they refuse to make peace and they engage you in battle, lay siege to that city. When the LORD your God delivers it into your hand, put to the sword all the men in it. As for the women, the children, the livestock and everything else in the city, you may take these as plunder for yourselves. And you may use the plunder the LORD your God gives you from your enemies. This is how you are to treat all the cities that are at a distance from you and do not belong to the nations nearby. However, in the cities of the nations the LORD your God is giving you as an inheritance, do not leave alive anything that breathes. Completely destroy them - the Hittites, Amorites, Canaanites, Perizzites, Hivites and Jebusites - as the LORD your God has commanded you. Otherwise, they will teach you to follow all the detestable things they do in worshiping their gods, and you will sin against the LORD your God.

    So on that day [King] Achish gave him [David] Ziklag, and it has belonged to the kings of Judah ever since. David lived in Philistine territory a year and four months. Now David and his men went up and raided the Geshurites, the Girzites and the Amalekites. (From ancient times these peoples had lived in the land extending to Shur and Egypt.) Whenever David attacked an area, he did not leave a man or woman alive, but took sheep and cattle, donkeys and camels, and clothes. Then he returned to Achish.
    When Achish asked, "Where did you go raiding today?" David would say, "Against the Negev of Judah" or "Against the Negev of Jerahmeel" or "Against the Negev of the Kenites." He did not leave a man or woman alive to be brought to Gath, for he thought, "They might inform on us and say, 'This is what David did.'" And such was his practice as long as he lived in Philistine territory. Achish trusted David and said to himself, "He has become so obnoxious to his people, the Israelites, that he will be my servant for life."
    [NOTE: Apparently God didn't mind, because 1 Kings 15:5 says, "For David had done what was right in the eyes of the LORD and had not failed to keep any of the LORD’s commands all the days of his life, except in the case of Uriah the Hittite."]

    With you I will shatter men and women, old people and children, young men and maidens.

Then divide the plunder into two parts, and give half to the men who fought the battle and half to the rest of the people. But first give the LORD his share of the captives, cattle, donkeys, sheep, and goats that belong to the army. Set apart one out of every five hundred as the LORD's share. Give this share of their half to Eleazar the priest as an offering to the LORD. Also take one of every fifty of the captives, cattle, donkeys, sheep, and goats in the half that belongs to the people of Israel. Give this share to the Levites in charge of maintaining the LORD's Tabernacle.' So Moses and Eleazar the priest did as the LORD commanded Moses. The plunder remaining from the spoils that the fighting men had taken totaled 675,000 sheep, 72,000 cattle, 61,000 donkeys, and 32,000 young girls.
    [NOTE: The rest of the captives were killed.]

  30. GOD ON SPOILS OF WAR - Deuteronomy 21:11-14 (NIV)
    "if you notice among the captives a beautiful woman and are attracted to her, you may take her as your wife. Bring her into your home and have her shave her head, trim her nails and put aside the clothes she was wearing when captured. After she has lived in your house and mourned her father and mother for a full month, then you may go to her and be her husband and she shall be your wife.

MORTALITY

  1. MORTALITY - Ecclesiastes 3:18-20
    I also thought, "As for men, God tests them so that they may see that they are like the animals. Man's fate is like that of the animals; the same fate awaits them both: As one dies, so dies the other. All have the same breath; man has no advantage over the animal. Everything is meaningless. All go to the same place; all come from dust, and to dust all return.

    For the living know that they will die, but the dead know nothing; they have no further reward, and even the memory of them is forgotten. Their love, their hate and their jealousy have long since vanished; never again will they have a part in anything that happens under the sun.

  4. MORTALITY - Ecclesiastes 9:9-10
    Enjoy life with your wife, whom you love, all the days of this meaningless life that God has given you under the sun — all your meaningless days. For this is your lot in life and in your toilsome labor under the sun. Whatever your hand finds to do, do it with all your might, for in the grave, where you are going, there is neither working nor planning nor knowledge nor wisdom.

  5. MORTALITY - Revelation 19:17-18
    And I saw an angel standing in the sun; and he cried with a loud voice, saying to all the fowls that fly in the midst of heaven, Come and gather yourselves together unto the supper of the great God; That ye may eat the flesh of kings, and the flesh of captains, and the flesh of mighty men, and the flesh of horses, and of them that sit on them, and the flesh of all men, both free and bond, both small and great.

As for the women, the children, the livestock and everything else in the city, you may take these as plunder for yourselves. And you may use the plunder the LORD your God gives you from your enemies. This is how you are to treat all the cities that are at a distance from you and do not belong to the nations nearby. However, in the cities of the nations the LORD your God is giving you as an inheritance, do not leave alive anything that breathes. Completely destroy them - the Hittites, Amorites, Canaanites, Perizzites, Hivites and Jebusites - as the LORD your God has commanded you.

The LORD said to Moses, "Do not be afraid of him, for I have handed him over to you, with his whole army and his land. Do to him what you did to Sihon king of the Amorites, who reigned in Heshbon." So they struck him down, together with his sons and his whole army, leaving them no survivors. And they took possession of his land.

The Israelites carried off for themselves all the plunder and livestock of these cities, but all the people they put to the sword until they completely destroyed them, not sparing anyone that breathed.

  11. GOD IS GRIEVED - 1 Samuel 15:10

  12. GOD PUNISHES HIS OWN PEOPLE - Lamentations 4:6,11

When she is cleansed from her discharge, she must count off seven days, and after that she will be ceremonially clean. On the eighth day she must take two doves or two young pigeons and bring them to the priest at the entrance to the Tent of Meeting.

  5. GOD, GOVERNMENT AND TAXES - Romans 13:1-7 [No American Revolution?]
    Everyone must submit himself to the governing authorities, for there is no authority except that which God has established. The authorities that exist have been established by God. Consequently, he who rebels against the authority is rebelling against what God has instituted, and those who do so will bring judgment on themselves. For rulers hold no terror for those who do right, but for those who do wrong. Do you want to be free from fear of the one in authority? Then do what is right and he will commend you. For he is God's servant to do you good. But if you do wrong, be afraid, for he does not bear the sword for nothing. He is God's servant, an agent of wrath to bring punishment on the wrongdoer. Therefore, it is necessary to submit to the authorities, not only because of possible punishment but also because of conscience. This is also why you pay taxes, for the authorities are God's servants, who give their full time to governing. Give everyone what you owe him: If you owe taxes, pay taxes; if revenue, then revenue; if respect, then respect; if honor, then honor.

The Law was written for people who are sexual perverts or who live as homosexuals or are kidnappers or liars or won't tell the truth in court.

THE CREATION STORIES, PART 1

  1. DAY AND NIGHT CREATED BEFORE THE SUN - Genesis 1:3-5
    And God said, "Let there be light," and there was light. God saw that the light was good, and he separated the light from the darkness. God called the light "day," and the darkness he called "night." And there was evening, and there was morning — the first day.

  2. PLANTS CREATED BEFORE THE SUN - Genesis 1:13
    Then God said, "Let the land produce vegetation: seed-bearing plants and trees on the land that bear fruit with seed in it, according to their various kinds." And it was so. The land produced vegetation: plants bearing seed according to their kinds and trees bearing fruit with seed in it according to their kinds. And God saw that it was good. And there was evening, and there was morning — the third day.

  3. GOD FINALLY CREATED THE SUN AND MOON ON THE FOURTH DAY - Genesis 1:14-19
    And God said, "Let there be lights in the expanse of the sky to separate the day from the night, and let them serve as signs to mark seasons and days and years, and let them be lights in the expanse of the sky to give light on the earth." And it was so. God made two great lights — the greater light to govern the day and the lesser light to govern the night. He also made the stars. God set them in the expanse of the sky to give light on the earth, to govern the day and the night, and to separate light from darkness. And God saw that it was good. And there was evening, and there was morning — the fourth day.

  4. GOD CREATED ANIMALS ON THE FIFTH DAY - Genesis 1:20-23
    And God said, "Let the water teem with living creatures, and let birds fly above the earth across the expanse of the sky." So God created the great creatures of the sea and every living and moving thing with which the water teems, according to their kinds, and every winged bird according to its kind. And God saw that it was good. God blessed them and said, "Be fruitful and increase in number and fill the water in the seas, and let the birds increase on the earth." And there was evening, and there was morning — the fifth day.

  5. GOD(s) CREATED MAN AND WOMAN ON THE SIXTH DAY, AFTER THE ANIMALS - Genesis 1:24-27 [See Genesis 2:4-8, below]
    And God said, "Let the land produce living creatures according to their kinds: livestock, creatures that move along the ground, and wild animals, each according to its kind." And it was so. God made the wild animals according to their kinds, the livestock according to their kinds, and all the creatures that move along the ground according to their kinds. And God saw that it was good. Then God said, "Let us make man in our image, in our likeness, and let them rule over the fish of the sea and the birds of the air, over the livestock, over all the earth, and over all the creatures that move along the ground." So God created man in his own image, in the image of God he created him; male and female he created them.

  6. GOD SAID ALL SEED-BEARING PLANTS ARE EDIBLE - Genesis 1:29
    Then God said, "I give you every seed-bearing plant on the face of the whole earth and every tree that has fruit with seed in it. They will be yours for food."

  7. GOD SAID ALL ANIMALS ARE HERBIVORES - Genesis 1:30
    "And to all the beasts of the earth and all the birds of the air and all the creatures that move on the ground — everything that has the breath of life in it — I give every green plant for food."

  8. END OF THE SIXTH DAY - Genesis 1:31
    God saw all that he had made, and it was very good. And there was evening, and there was morning—the sixth day.



THE CREATION STORIES, PART 2

  1. GOD CREATED MAN, THEN PLANTS AND ANIMALS - Genesis 2:4-8 [See Genesis 1:24-31, above]
    This is the account of the heavens and the earth when they were created. When the LORD God made the earth and the heavens — and no shrub of the field had yet appeared on the earth and no plant of the field had yet sprung up, for the LORD God had not sent rain on the earth and there was no man to work the ground, but streams came up from the earth and watered the whole surface of the ground — the LORD God formed the man from the dust of the ground and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life, and the man became a living being. Now the LORD God had planted a garden in the east, in Eden;

  2. GOD CREATED THE ANIMALS - Genesis 2:19
    Now the LORD God had formed out of the ground all the beasts of the field and all the birds of the air.

  3. GOD CREATED WOMAN AFTER MAN, THE PLANTS AND ANIMALS - Genesis 2:22
    Then the LORD God made a woman from the rib he had taken out of the man, and he brought her to the man.

  4. GOD AND CAIN REFER TO OTHER PEOPLE ON EARTH - Genesis 4:13-17
    Cain said to the LORD, "My punishment is more than I can bear. Today you are driving me from the land, and I will be hidden from your presence; I will be a restless wanderer on the earth, and whoever finds me will kill me." But the LORD said to him, "Not so; if anyone kills Cain, he will suffer vengeance seven times over." Then the LORD put a mark on Cain so that no one who found him would kill him. So Cain went out from the LORD's presence and lived in the land of Nod, east of Eden. Cain lay with his wife, and she became pregnant and gave birth to Enoch.

  5. GOD CREATED THE RAINBOW FOR THE FIRST TIME - Genesis 9:13
    "I have set my rainbow in the clouds, and it will be the sign of the covenant between me and the earth."

    The LORD is the everlasting God, the Creator of the ends of the earth. He will not grow tired or weary, and his understanding no one can fathom.

  8. GOD ON KNOWLEDGE - Genesis 2:17 (KJV)
    "But of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, thou shalt not eat of it: for in the day that thou eatest thereof thou shalt surely die."

  9. EVE AND ADAM EAT THE FRUIT - Genesis 3:6 (KJV)
    And when the woman saw that the tree was good for food, and that it was pleasant to the eyes, and a tree to be desired to make one wise, she took of the fruit thereof, and did eat, and gave also unto her husband with her; and he did eat.

  10. WHAT HAPPENED TO ADAM AND EVE - Genesis 3:22
    And the LORD God said, "The man has now become like one of us, knowing good and evil. He must not be allowed to reach out his hand and take also from the tree of life and eat, and live forever."

  11. ADAM DID NOT DIE THE DAY HE ATE THE FRUIT - Genesis 5:5 (KJV)
    And all the days that Adam lived were nine hundred and thirty years: and he died.
