”Evil Bible”? What Anti-Christians Conveniently Ignore

Sociopaths, Psychopaths, Narcissists, anti-Christians and deliberate atheists love to say the Bible is evil and take verses out of context (which is no different then non-Jewish racists taking Jews out of the context of the world they live in to make themselves look righteous and superior). Everyone who had studied religion, especially Christianity, for a few years on the Internet will have come across a moron pulling out a verse and committing the fallacy of “begging the question” basically meaning “making no point” or adding “evil” and other denigrations to the end of the verse, as if that somehow explains everything (which is the same fallacy plus the fallacies of emotionalism and mere insult). It is as stupid as anyone including psychopaths, quoting, “Do not lie,” and then saying, “bad!” or “Don’t murder”; immoral!” A favorite Truth-denier attack of racists and atheists is to bring up God killing of many Amalekites, and adding that God killed women and children too. But again, they make no point. God gives and takes away life all the time, what about it? Are women superior to males that God shouldn’t take away their lives? Are kids necessarily superior to adults or more moral? Is a little haeful kid superior to a moral and self-controlled adult? And who said the Amalekites were superior to the Jews? What is the evidence they were better? Did God say, “I’m going to kill them merely because they aren’t Jews” or “I just don’t like them,” or “I’m going to kill them all because they wouldn’t let the Jews pass through this wasteland.” No he didn’t, and it’s not implied. In fact, as I’ve pointed out to Muslims and others, the Bible repeatedly says that the Jews were not good, not a single one, and were corrupt, and had become worse than their enemies because they knew right from wrong much better than their enemies being that God wrote it out clearly for them, but worshiped empty imaginary gods anyways. Does that sound like racism? Obviously not. Racists do not insult themselves as much as their enemies because they usually believe themselves to be superior. Yet the Bible is filled more with condemnations of Jews then any other racial group.

Further, if God, the supreme perfect being wanted to kill less than 0000000000001% of the world’s population, or just one 8 year old for committing the least wrong thing to do, who is above God to say, “Thou shalt not kill anything for any reason unless I approve.” Who in the world has authority over God, or comes close to the definition of God? Who is close to perfect? Even if God were not perfect, who is that they can command or restrict God? No one. So to judge (as in condemn) God, is silly, futile, arrogance; it is childish talk to say, “I know better than the one who created me, knows everything, controls all things and sustains me.”

Atheists also ignore what God does not say he did when saying he kills left and right: no where does God say he kills millions of people a day and instantly punishes anyone for doing wrong. The Bible does not, on every page, say, “God kills millions a day, God can’t be appeased.” And notice atheists never point out that God also creates more people a day then die? Notice they NEVER point out anything positive, not even the most commonly known thing about the Bible, that being that is says not to lie? Why don’t atheists point out the positive? Hence why the Bible calls such people, “fault finders” because that’s all they are looking for. It’s fault finders who are the ones who are always angry, who are always “negative” and unfun. They live to make accusations while ignoring their own faults. It’s as if they were accusing everyone else in order to keep judgment off themselves, like a criminal in court who doesn’t want to accept responsibility for his crimes, or a bitter kid who doesn’t want to admit to his parent that he had done something wrong (which he did do).

How is it deliberate atheists can ignore Exodus 23:9, Luke 6:27-41 and Mark 10:17-21? And out of everything in the Bible, they single out the “Don’t judge” verse and take it out of context and arbitrarily accept that it’s supposed to end in a period. and use it as a personal shield and weapon against the very people who obey God. Now THOSE are the true hypocrites. Even if they saw that “Don’t judge” didn’t end in a period, such hypocrites in their carelessness wold still be fault-finders and take it out of context anyways, and spin it as something that agrees with them. They vomit on every verse but that one, conveniently using it as a SHIELD to protect themselves from judgment, while insulting Christians for using God as a shield, as if “Don’t judge” wasn’t apart of God’s word, as if God only afforded protection for those that hated what he said. Do you see the twisted evil and hypocrisy? And ironically that verse is taken out of context on a passage concerning the HYPOCRISY of non-Christian judges judging forgiven Christians!

…to you who are listening I say: Love your enemies, do good to those who hate you, bless those who curse you, pray for those who mistreat you. If someone slaps you on one cheek, turn to them the other also. If someone takes your coat, do not withhold your shirt from them. Give to everyone who asks you, and if anyone takes what belongs to you, do not demand it back. Do to others as you would have them do to you.

If you love those who love you, what credit is that to you? Even sinners love those who love them. And if you do good to those who are good to you, what credit is that to you? Even sinners do that. And if you lend to those from whom you expect repayment, what credit is that to you? Even sinners lend to sinners, expecting to be repaid in full. But love your enemies, do good to them, and lend to them without expecting to get anything back. Then your reward will be great, and you will be children of the Most High, because he is kind to the ungrateful and wicked. Be merciful, just as your Father is merciful.

Don’t judge, and you will not be judged. Don’t condemn, and you will not be condemned. Forgive, and you will be forgiven. Give, and it will be given to you. A good measure, pressed down, shaken together and running over, will be poured into your lap. For with the measure you use, it will be measured to you.”

He also told them this parable: “Can the blind lead the blind? Will they not both fall into a pit? The student is not above the teacher, but everyone who is fully trained will be like their teacher.

Why do you look at the speck of sawdust in your brother’s eye and pay no attention to the plank in your own eye? – Luke 6:27-41

As Jesus started on his way, a man ran up to him and fell on his knees before him. “Good teacher,” he asked, “what must I do to inherit eternal life?

“Why do you call me good,” Jesus answered, “No one is good—except God alone. You know the commandments: ‘You shall not murder, you shall not commit adultery, you shall not steal, you shall not give false testimony, you shall not defraud, honor your father and mother.’”

“Teacher,” he declared, “all these I have kept since I was a boy.”

Jesus looked at him and loved him. “One thing you lack,” he said. “Go, sell everything you have and give to the poor, and you will have treasure in heaven. Then come follow me.” – Mark 10:17-21

“Don’t oppress a foreigner; you yourselves know how it feels to be foreigners, because you were foreigners in Egypt.” – Exodus 23:9
