What If There Are Bible Verses That Are Wrong?
Everyone seems to enjoy Bible verses that are pleasant and make you feel good, but there are plenty of Bible verses that don’t make a lot of sense and often create frustration for those who read them. I’ve never given it much thought, but what if there are actually Bible verses that are wrong?
If one Bible verse is wrong, would there be other bible verse of the day that would be wrong also? There are plenty of Bible verses that suggest evil doings like murder and killing in the Old Testament. It seems like the God of the Old Testament accepted these killings as long as people were doing it in his name. Try to make some sense out of that one
The God of the Old Testament was a complete different God. Jesus talked about loving our neighbors and loving our enemies. Does this mean that only God can tell us who to kill or can God instruct other man to tell us who to kill? If one Bible verse says that we should do one thing and another Bible verse is telling us to do the opposite things, which ones are we going to believe.
I don’t want to sound like I’m ruining everyone’s party, but when are we going to start paying attention to the Bibles verses that don’t serve mankind in a positive way. When are we truly going to start looking at the Bible as a book, instead of something that was written by a superior entity that created the world?
I’ve got some bad news for people who believe that the Bible is the written word of God. It just might not be, what you think it is. It could have actually been written by a few men, many centuries ago. I’m not telling you to quit believing everything that you have learned up to this point, I’m asking you to start educating yourself about the origins of the Bible and early Christianity.
