1.Therefore saith the Lord "I will ease me of mine adversaries, and avenge me of mine enemies " ISIAH, 2, 27
Gee, is the Bible telling Christians to go out and kill their enemies????
2. And he that curseth his father or his mother shall surely be put to death. EXODUS 21, 17
Gosh, many a times as a teenager I cursed my folks- is God saying that they should have killed me for a fairly minor infraction???
3. And while the children of Israel were in the wilderness, they found a man that gathered sticks upon the Sabbath day. And the Lord said unto Moses, "The man shall be surely put to death: all the congegation shall stone him with stones.
WOW, does this mean that if you don't follow the Bible to every single detail, that the rest of the Christian church should harm or kill you???
Boy, Just WHOSE religious teachings are violent. These are historical accounts that have to be read in the context of the age. And just as we read the Bible now and interpret it to better our lives now, Muslims read the Koran in the context of their faith. To judge all Muslims by the actions of a few is to judge all Christians by the actions of Jimmy Jones.
And for goodness sake, Sassy, if you havent figured out the difference between the Koran and Arabic and the Torah and Hebrew, then DONT post on sites involving the Middle East or religion.
