Stuff God Hates by trezoid Stuff God Hates by trezoid
Seriously, it's all in the bible.

God hates a lot of things, and if you're going to protest one you need to follow all of them to not seem like a giant hypocrite.

It's funny though...all the anti-same sex marriage people are breaking several of these...

Maybe they just need to read their bible more.

These are the Jewish laws. They do not apply to Christians. Note that all of these are frim the Old Testament. Nice try, but you are not going to shake anyone's faith with these.

All translations were cross-checked in multiple christian versions of the bible. If you are going to just pick and choose which parts to listen to you need to drop the entire section. If you're only going to listen to the happiness and love new testament, great. It's quite a lot saner to modern interpretations, but if you even slightly start heading into old-testament territory and don't adhear to all the old testament laws, regardless of how insane they are to any modern viewer you are a hypocrite and far more dangerous than the "sinners" who think it's all a bit silly.

I think you misunderstand. I'm not saying that those verses aren't in the Bible as a whole, just that the Old Testament means less to Christians than the New Testament does. Not all books of the Bible carry equal weight, you know. The psalms aren't as authoritative as the Gospels, for one thing. The Bible is a compilation of books, not a single book, you know. That's why the readings start with "a reading from the book of ____" not "a reading from the Bible."

I understand the confusion, though. It's not like a novel or a textbook in which all parts likely carry the same weight. Now, this is not picking and choosing, but application of the relevant sections to the relevant ends for which those sections were intended. The Old Testament covers the laws, history, and customs of the Jewish people, a group who had a special relationship with God. Think of it as God's pilot program. When the time came, God sent his son, Jesus Christ, to make the plan more general, and apply to all people. For this, a new covenant was made, recorded in the New Testament.

Now, before you get all "Jesus didn't change the law of God and he even said that", this is true. He didn't come to change God's law. However, the human customs of the Jews were never part of God's law, and their laws only applied to the Jews. Christians, who were mostly never Jews (after a very early date, at least) were therefore never bound by the "bad stuff" which is quoted above. That's Jewish law, including some very specific Jewish things which applied to the Jewish state of Israel. I use the word "Jewish" so much to emphasize the difference between the two religions. They are as different as a parent and child. Related, but distinct.

Now, the Old Testament itself is made up of many distinct parts, many of which focus on God's law, and many of which focus on Jewish law. Christians simply followed God's parts, and dropped the Jewish ones. This is why early Christians could eat ham, but were still bound by the Ten Commandments. There is nothing "hypocritical" about applying laws to the subjects they were intended to apply to. I'm not saying those "bad stuff" verses from the Old Testament didn't apply to somebody at some time, just that they applied to Jews of ancient Israel, and not to Christians. That's perfectly understandable, given that the Jews had their laws, and didn't mistake their customs and laws for those of other lands.

The first Christians didn't make that mistake either, especially after St. Paul came forth and distinguished between God's law and the Jew-specific laws. I suppose the only objection left is "why don't Jews follow all those laws?", it is because they made those laws themselves and can change them. Not every law passed down in the Bible is from God, after all. A lot of that stuff is from Moses, who, although a prophet of God, was not totally in line with him on every matter. That's why he wasn't allowed into Israel (the rock and water stuff was just to illustrate that). I suppose this calls Moses' character into question, but you do need to keep in mind that the "bad stuff", although seen as crazy today, made a certain sort of sense when viewed through the lens of that time and place.

"If you're going to protest one you need to follow all of them to not seem like a giant hypocrite." Thank you for putting into words what I have been to verbally inarticulate to say. I try to avoid cherry picking as much as possible.

LOL thanks for this, went to the Skeptic's Annointed Bible page to look some of these up.

I'd point out on the churches it seems its churches of other religions  but I'm still laughing at Deuteronomy 14 esp 14:11 -18 ...
14:11 Of all clean birds ye shall eat. 
Yet 14:12 But these are they of which ye shall not eat (then lists about 13 or so (it repeats some, owl is listed 3 times!, there is the eagle then gier eagle, but with hawks it say "hawk and its kind" lol) and the 14th listed isn't a bird at all!
14:18 And the stork, and the heron after her kind, and the lapwing, and the bat.

Wow, you know what this means. (please read the following with dripping sarcasm)
Since the bible is true, then we have been lied to  through school and a  bat is a bird!

Yeah because arguments means gain of knowledge and your stone age non-knowledge religion would really like that, huh? Don't ask questions, just be a brainless slave... that's very Christian of you!
