  • 10 Verses Never Preached

    I found this pretty amusing.

    Can anyone say if these are real? I'm not a Christian, so I don't know if they are or have the motivation to find out.

      Like I keep telling people, the Bible is a hilarious book.

      Solomon is a riot. Seriously.

        And you thought the Bible was boring. ;)

        Theres a lot of entertaining stuff in the Bible. Theres also a lot of ways to get the wrong impression, if you take stuff out of context, especially considering all the different translations you can get for different passages. Some translations are a lot more trustworthy than others.

            THey are in there, but grossly taken out of their proper context in that article.

              A lot of them don't really have a context. They are just kinda there, which is probably why they stand out as being so strange. In the middle of Judas's betrayal, a half-naked guy runs up to Jesus then runs away when the guards snap at him. Poor editing, really.

                    So, then, isnt the homosexuality thing taken out of context as well?
                    You cant have it one way and not the other.

                    Ive read the bible and dont consider myself a religous person, but from what i can tell is that there is one hard and fast rule of sprituality in general.

                    1) Dont be crappy to other people.

                    If everyone followed this rule the world would be an amazing place to live.

                      Sources say the Dow Jones' decline is directly related to Dethklok front-man Nathan Explosion's constant deleting of potential new albums.

                        Yeah, "never preached on"... #7? Isn't that one hugely important in the Vatican's anti-contraceptive stance?

                            "Then Judah said to Onan, “Go in to your brother’s wife, and perform your duty as a brother-in-law to her, and raise up offspring for your brother.” Onan knew that the offspring would not be his; so when he went in to his brother’s wife, he wasted his seed on the ground in order not to give offspring to his brother. But what he did was displeasing in the sight of the LORD; so He took his life also."

                            Actually, I believe this one is used as a reasoning behind the evil of masturbation. But Religious scholars tend to agree that the real sin here was definance of God rather than him "spilling his seed."

                              Without a doubt.

                              Another thing to note is that those verses are in the Old Testament and therefore under the old law. Christ fulfilled that law when he came and died for us and created the new law (the ten commandments).

                              I know this may not make a lot of sense to non-believers. You just have to trust me. ;)
                              It is by grace you have been saved, through faith - and this not from yourselves, it is the gift of God - not by works, so that no one can boast. Ephesians 2:8-9/NIV
