Quote for the day -- when falsehoods are sacred

Also, the Bible's 10 Commandments say Thou Shall Not Commit Adultery, Steal, or Lie, and yet the Christians adore a man who's broken all three of those particular Commandments, and some of those same Christian pastors advocate for the death of homosexuals -- although there's nothing in the 10 Cs about that.

Bibleists use that book to condemn whomever they fear or hate and ignore those same 10 Cs when a charlatan they admire breaks any of them.

That's just one reason so many young people have turned away from the current hypocritical Christian religion and why so many of us never fell for it in the first place.

The Mark Twain quote is just more evidence that the Bible was written by fearful, ignorant old men. The NT is supposed to supersede the OT, but there's not much improvement. See what the gospels say about slavery, for example.

Oh the Bible. I have so many opinions.
The one thing always gets me is people raising their books in church and declaring that everything there is true. Even before the service starts. It gets me every time.
Oh and the cherry-picking. That drives me up the wall. The amount of cognitive dissonance needed to ‘read’ the Bible never ceases to amaze me.

And since there are 50 plus different versions of the Bible, which one is the "right" one.

Wanting to be a missionary many, many years ago, then I actually read the Old and New Testaments. Cover to cover. That's when I assigned "The Book" to the pile of other mythologies I discarded.
