Why I Love the Bible (Top 10 Reasons)

"Adam and Eve" by Titian
"Adam and Eve" by Titian

10. Nudity. You have Adam and Eve streaking in the Garden of Eden. Bathsheba bathing. Isaiah preaching naked for three years (Isaiah 20:3). I’m surprised modern day female preachers don’t try this technique in order to build mega-churches and a worldwide television congregation. A puzzling verse is John 21:7 where Peter is fishing naked. I don’t know why, unless he was trying to catch a mermaid.

Okay, the word “nudity” does not actually appear in the Bible, King James Version, but the word “nakedness” does many times. Read Leviticus 18. There is a whole lot of “Thou shalt not uncover the nakedness of . . .” being undressed, ‘er I mean being addressed.

I wonder why Adam and Eve have belly buttons, at least according to those famous artists of old.

"Moses Breaks the Tablets" by Rembrandt
"Moses Breaks the Tablets" by Rembrandt

9. The Ten Commandments. That was a terrific movie. In the Bible, quite frequently there is somebody breaking the commandments. It is the consequences of breaking a commandment that fascinates me. Of course most everyone knows the consequences of King David’s adultery with Bathsheba.

What happened to Jezebel? She had many Jewish prophets killed, she conspired to have Naboth murdered so her husband King Ahab could take his land, and she persuaded Ahab to worship false gods. After Ahab died, she got all dolled up to seduce King Jehu and went to the top of the wall of the city. The eunuchs tossed her off, she got trampled by horses, and dogs ate her. In today’s vernacular a “jezebel” is a woman who uses her sexuality for evil. Now that would include at least the entire female population between the ages of thirteen and seventy.

And then you have that one person in the Bible who broke all the commandments at the very same time. Right, Moses.

"Nebuchadnezzar" by Blake
"Nebuchadnezzar" by Blake


8. Proof that addicts can be rehabilitated. Just look at Nebuchadnezzar. If he doesn’t look like one strung-out junkie, I don’t know who does. Neb was on grass for seven years (Daniel 4:33). He must have been smoking some good stuff. Look at all the hallucinations (dreams) he had. When Neb got off the grass, he praised and honored God Daniel 4:34).

Now not all addicts are so lucky. Solomon, what with 700 and 300 concubines, was addicted to sex, much like Tiger Woods. Unfortunately, there apparently were no sex addiction clinics way back then. Strange stuff was Solomon’s downfall in that “For it came to pass, when Solomon was old, that his wives turned away his heart after other gods” (1Kings 11:4)” and God said unto Solomon “I will surely rend the kingdom from thee” (11:11).

Not that Solomon didn’t achieve do some positive things. Under the influence of his almost infinite wisdom, his ladies invented lesbianism and dildos.

"Horsing Around" by Jezebel
"Horsing Around" by Jezebel


7. The Word of God is not copyrighted. You can quote it all you want, particularly from the King James Version. Some modern translations are copyrighted, but often they offer translations online, and you are permitted to do properly attributed quotes.

Punctuation and proper grammar don’t matter much in the King James Version. Much like the texts I send and receive on my cell phone. So the Bible is in a language most of us should be familiar with, especially teenagers. For example in Leviticus 18:23 we have, “Neither shat thou lie with any beast to defile thyself therewith: neither shall any woman stand before a beast to lie down thereto: it is confusion.” According to The Chicago Manual of Style, 6.64, when a colon introduces two or more sentences the first word following it is capitalized.

Many women insist that the verse cited above pertaining to beasts is referring to men. Not so. It is about making out with horses and gorillas and such.

"Fallen Angel" by Cabenel
"Fallen Angel" by Cabenel


6. There is plenty of sex in the Bible. There is plenty of sex in just one book of the Bible, the Song of Solomon. Such erotic language in that book! Take for example chapter 4, verse 5, “Thy two breasts are like two young roes that are twins, which feed among the lilies.” I’m sure that is more of a turn on to young ladies than some dude screaming “Great hooters!”

But the sex in the Bible that intrigues me the most you will find in Genesis 6 where fallen angels copulated with human women. Of course, that also makes it the most controversial sex in the Bible. Would human women have sex with angels, given the opportunity? If the fallen angel looked like the one portrayed by Cabanel, I think they might be persuaded, especially once they have been informed by the angels in question that angels are not subject to MRP (Male Refractory Period). That means they don’t suffer from down time after ejaculation.

"Bathsheba at Her Bath" by Rembrandt
"Bathsheba at Her Bath" by Rembrandt


5. Date rape is not tolerated in the Bible. Every time a young man comes to the house to pick up my teenage daughter for a date, I point this out.

I start with Genesis 34:2 Dinah went out for a walk in the park and Shechem “saw her, he took her, and lay with her, and defiled her.” So what happened to Shechem and his buddies who egged him on? First, they were circumcised, and then Simeon and Levi cut off their big heads.

We have more than one Tamar in the Bible. The first Tamar played the harlot with Judah. Perhaps she raped him? Another Tamar, the daughter of King David, we find in 2 Samuel 13. She was raped by Amnon, the son of King David (half-brother to Tamar). Two years later her full brother, Absalom, had Amnon killed at a feast.

King David happened to spy upon Bathsheba taking a bath. I happen to believe that what happened after that was not exactly consensual.

"Jacob Struggles with the Angel" by Rembrandt
"Jacob Struggles with the Angel" by Rembrandt


4. All the sports in the Bible. Right from the very beginning. “In the beginning (big inning) . . .”

Eve stole first, Adam stole second, Cain struck out Abel, the prodigal son came home, and the Angels and Giants were rained out.

Wrestling seems to be a favorite sport of our biblical heroes. Samson, barehanded, put a can of whoop arse on the lion in Judges 14:5-6. The most controversial wrestling takes place in Genesis 32:24-29. Much speculation surrounds who exactly it was that Jacob wrestled. Some say Jesus. Some say an archangel, either Michael or Gabriel. The Midrash claims the unidentified combatant was the guardian spirit of Esau. What did Rembrandt say? That sure looks like a chick to me.

"Satan, Sin, and Death" by Blake
"Satan, Sin, and Death" by Blake


3. The plot and conflict contain the ultimate bad guy, Satan. What was it again that he did to Eve? I have heard stories ranging from that he merely lied to her to that he uncovered her nakedness (again, the favorite language of Leviticus 18). But wasn’t she already naked?

In Luke 22:3 we have “Then entered Satan into Judas surnamed Iscariot, being of the number of the twelve.” I don’t think we are talking about Leviticus 18:22 here. You know, “Thou shalt not lie with mankind, as with womankind: it is an abomination.” We all know what Judas did after Satan entered him.

The list of Satan’s dastardly deeds goes on and on, but perhaps a picture is worth a thousand words. “Satan, Sin, and Death.”

"Lady Godiva" by John Collier
"Lady Godiva" by John Collier


2. God wrote it. No, not Lady Godiva. The feminine may be divine, but not in the Bible. He, He, He. God is a he. We know He (God) wrote the ten commandments. If you dictate a book to your secretary, you are still the author, right?

"La Crucifixtion" by Vouet
"La Crucifixtion" by Vouet



1. God did author it, in terms of the divine inspiration behind it. Yeah, like who is smarter than God? Correct, nobody. This is so important that it is number 1 and 2.



CONCLUSION: Believers will read the Bible anyway. But now you atheists have some good reasons to get with the Jesus program.

Haha, I'm surprised you never went into Ezekiel. There's some dirty stuff in there. After 23:20 started to get quoted a lot, I went back and read all of 23. Moral of the story? God's apparently ok with abusing and murdering prostitutes. It is indeed an interesting book at times, though there are very long sections that are just boring as can be and horribly written.

While I can't remember the source, there was some study awhile back that found only about 1/8 of Christians in the US have actually read the whole thing(even then I suspect some were stretching the truth). I wonder what the statistic would be for ex-Christians, as I've known quite a few who became deists or atheists after reading the whole thing.

wkhigley, I didn't mention Ezekiel 23 because it's not about sex.

Let's take a look. You have these two sisters who "committed whoredoms in their youth: there were their breasts pressed, and there they bruised the teats of their virginity." (Ezekiel 23:2)

Does that sound like sex to you?


wkhigley profile image

wkhigley 4 years ago

There's quite a bit of sex in Ezekiel 23.

23:3 They became prostitutes in Egypt, engaging in prostitution from their youth. In that land their breasts were fondled and their virgin bosoms caressed

23:8 She did not give up the prostitution she began in Egypt, when during her youth men slept with her, caressed her virgin bosom and poured out their lust on her.

23:18-20 When she carried on her prostitution openly and exposed her naked body, I turned away from her in disgust, just as I had turned away from her sister. 19 Yet she became more and more promiscuous as she recalled the days of her youth, when she was a prostitute in Egypt. 20 There she lusted after her lovers, whose genitals were like those of donkeys and whose emission was like that of horses.

Sure, it isn't a happy story by any means, but it's pretty smutty.

wkhigley, you probably should focus on something besides the sex. What about Ezekiel 23:4? These two who commit whoredoms are "Samaria is Aholah, and Jerusalem Aholibah." What do you make of that?

Well Judah's Daughter, coming from you my favorite hubber, I consider that high praise indeed.

No Mo Moses 4 years ago

Your pictures are very old and the bible is even older. Way out of date, and fiction anyway. The bible tells of God creating the two tablets with the Ten Commandments on it, and Moses received it from God. He then goes down the mountain, doesn't like what he sees, and breaks the tablets into little pieces. Today we have a remembered copy of the Ten Commandments, and people ignore it anyway. If humans don't follow the Ten Commandments and most don't, then how can they follow something that they can't comprehend.


BLACKANDGOLDJACK profile image

BLACKANDGOLDJACK 4 years ago from Blitzburgh area Author

No Mo Moses, I don’t have any problem comprehending the 10 commandments. I can explain them to you if you can’t comprehend. Let’s see, how about Exodus 20:15. “Thou shalt not steal.” That means you don’t go to Walmart and steal the 2012 Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Edition. You stand in line and pay for it. I should have included some pics from that in the great art in the hub.

You appear to be making some sort of issue regarding the 10 commandments being in pieces. They were rewritten by either God or Moses (which one rewrote them is the subject of debate, not that it matters much). So where are they now? In the ark of the covenant. Where is the ark of the covenant? Some say that the ark was dug up by the Nazis, who were destroyed by doing so, and then the ark was recovered by Indiana Jones and is now stored in Area 51. I don’t really know, other than the ark will one day be in heaven, according to Revelation 11:19.

It looks like you probably won’t be seeing the 10 commandments one day.

The Philosopher 4 years ago

You should diligently learn the Word of God and by no means imagine that you know it. Let him who is able to read take a psalm in the morning, or some other chapter of Scripture, and study it for awhile. This is what I do. When I get up in the morning, I pray and recite the Ten Commandments, the Creed, and the Lord's Prayer with the children, adding any one of the psalms. I do this only to keep myself well acquainted with these matters, and I do not want to let the mildew of the notion grown that I know them well enough. The devil is a greater rascal than you think he is. You do as yet not know what sort of fellow he is and what a desperate rogue you are. His definite design is to get you tired of the Word and in this way to draw you away from it. This is his aim.


BLACKANDGOLDJACK profile image

BLACKANDGOLDJACK 4 years ago from Blitzburgh area Author

Thank you for your contribution, The Philosopher. It reminds me of a true story:

An atheist was walking through the woods, admiring all that the "accidents" that evolution had created.

"What majestic trees! What powerful rivers! What beautiful animals!" he said to himself.

As he was walking alongside the river he heard a rustling in the bushes behind him. Turning to look, he saw a 7-foot grizzly bear charge towards him.

He ran as fast as he could up the path. He looked over his shoulder and saw the grizzly closing.

Somehow, he ran even faster, so scared that tears came to his eyes. He looked again and the bear was even closer.

His heart was pounding and he tried to run faster. He tripped and fell to the ground.

He rolled over to pick himself up but the bear was right over him, reaching for him with its left paw and raising its right paw to strike him.

At that instant the atheist cried, "Oh my God . . . !"

Time stopped. The bear froze. The forest was silent.

Even the river stopped moving.

As a bright light shone upon the man, a voice came out of the sky, "You deny my existence for all these years, teach others that I don't exist and even credit creation to a cosmic accident. Do you expect me to help you out of this predicament? Am I to count you as a believer?"

The atheist looked directly into the light, "It would be hypocritical to ask to be religious after all these years, but perhaps you could make the bear religious?"

"Very well," said the voice.

The light went out. The river ran. The sounds of the forest resumed.

And then the bear dropped his right paw, brought both paws together and bowed its head and spoke: "Lord, for this food which I am about to receive, I am truly thankful.”

I was in France a couple weeks ago and visited the Museum of Fine Arts at Lyon where 'La Crucifixion' is displayed.I have also seen the paintings of Adam and Eve by Titian and a similar later one by Rubens.Very similar except fewer fig leaves.Lol.These paintings are absolutely fantastic when viewed in person.I enjoyed your article.

Thank you, Lillian. Yes, I've seen the Rubens painting. Not just similar, almost identical. Hey, isn't that a copyright violation?

I have no ads on this hub because I got the message "WARNING: Advertising has been disabled on this hub based on automatic content filters." Now, I don't know if it's the paintings or the words like sex, sex, sex, and sex. What can I say; there's a lot of sex in the Bible. Maybe I'll replace the sex with *** and see what that does.

Well krsharp05, King James there had the right idea when he substituted "uncover her nakedness" for "sex" in his hub 'er I mean book. Otherwise his book probably would have been banned.

I think I'm going to substitute "monkey around" for "sex" every time it appears in this hub. The reference to monkey should keep the atheists happy.

Rad Man 4 years ago

But it appears the bible does condone Date Rape, In the first one you will notice that if he rapes and get CAUGHT he has to give the father money and marry the girl. Poor girl get no say. In the second one he can do anything he likes as long as he is at war with you and kills you first. Something to think about.

Deuteronomy 22:28-29 NIV

If a man happens to meet a virgin who is not pledged to be married and rapes her and they are discovered, he shall pay her father fifty shekels of silver. He must marry the young woman, for he has violated her. He can never divorce her as long as he lives.

Deuteronomy 21:10-14 NKJV

When you go out to war against your enemies, and the LORD your God delivers them into your hand, and you take them captive, and you see among the captives a beautiful woman, and desire her and would take her for your wife, then you shall bring her home to your house, and she shall shave her head and trim her nails. She shall put off the clothes of her captivity, remain in your house, and mourn her father and her mother a full month; after that you may go in to her and be her husband, and she shall be your wife. And it shall be, if you have no delight in her, then you shall set her free, but you certainly shall not sell her for money; you shall not treat her brutally, because you have humbled her.

Yes, I've posted the bible a few times recently because it shows just what is in your book and that is hard to hear. It's hard to account for the bible condoning Murder, rape and slavery isn't it?

And you are right. It is drivel, but it's still the bible.

BLACKANDGOLDJACK 4 years ago from Blitzburgh area Author

Okay, I have a little time to suffer fools gladly now.

The verses Rad Man quotes from Deuteronomy 21:10-14 are already being discussed in a thread he started on the forums. So I will postpone further comment.

Let's take the verses he quoted from Deuteronomy 22:28-29 regarding rape. Hmmm. I wonder why he quoted from the NIV when the other verses he quoted are NKJV. Hmmm.

Oh, it might be because of the word RAPES. Do you find that word "rapes" in other translations? Not any good ones. The NIV is a lame translation.

Rad Man, did you bother to research what the original language Hebrew might reveal before you started crying rape?

Talking about being grilled, when this seed of Satan (Rad Man) gets grilled on the forums with respect to the babble-on (Babylon) he posts, he starts flopping like a fish out of water.

I doubt he has actually read much of the Bible. Yesterday he kept talking about the apple that Eve bit. That was no apple. A banana? I would have thought village atheists are fond of bananas due to their fondness for monkeys.

Laughter BlackJack, "Playing The Ace In The Whole"

WITHOUT the simple mustard seed of Faith that LEADS To Baptism and Salvation and The Gift Of The Holy Ghost, The Holy Scriptures can bewilder even the MOST self-righteous, (and ACTUALLY righteous) smart Alec.

Anyhow, no-one even NEEDS The Holy Bible TO BE SAVED and to Be Baptized By Water and Holy Fire.

It's not as if "The His-Story Of The Ages" is a closely guarded secret.

Mature adults, exposed to The Admonitions Of Christ through His Preachers, DELIBERATELY choose to say NAY (or is it neighhhhhh)

You know, Elijah7, I think Rad Man may be an Antichrist.

I saw an interesting post in the forums on the topic “I am an atheist, but I don’t understand atheist trolls (begun by Chasuk).”

To which rdcast responded, “There are atheists, agnostics and then you have Antichrists, who hide their agenda by calling themselves atheists.”

Unfortunately I am banned from the forums for offering evidence that atheists are as bright as a black hole so I couldn’t respond.

I do not think it is very productive to call people antichrists and demons. I have been noticing a lot of theists doing this lately. I think that it kind of creates an air of hostility and discourages non believers from really considering the credibility of theists. Just a thought.

Right now brother, the planet is TEEMING with antichrists like the cockroaches in that movie.

The very WORST type have come out of Christendom thanks to that VOMIT from Hell called EVIL-ution theory.

No surprise, these are The Very End Times of The Very Last Moments Of The Very Last Days - (WHICH IS GOOD NEWS BY THE WAY)

i Love EVERYONE, but i HATE AND DESPISE a multitude of things they say and do - THAT'S DIFFERENT, and Allowed By Heaven.

The Church teachings on the antichrist have ALSO got a bit skewed in this melee.

True antichrists are people in the following groups who HAVE heard The True Gospel and then DELIBERATELY and VIRULENTLY rejected His Word :

atheists, agnostics, moslems, hindus, buddhists, bahais, crazy cult members et al, plus weird so called "churches" who deny The Trinity AND satan's spies (liars inside Real Assemblies) who are PRETENDING...and later leave The Assembly and live a life of debauchery, NEVER Witnessing to anyone...this pack might "say" they are Christian, but it's lip service, NOT from The Holy Spirit.

calynbana, I think Elijah7 pretty well covered the subject of antichrists.

Now, I believe atheists are entitled to their opinions. But when an atheist spreads clearly false information I find myself "hostile" not to the person, but to what the person has said. Hence my hub "Does the Bible Condone Rape?"

Hey Elijah7, I'm on my 3rd ban too. Each time much ado about nothing. These atheist "report monkeys" keep objecting to my apparent hostility with respect to the erroneous information they keep spreading like a broken record.

What is HubPages thinking regarding these arbitrary and capricious bans? Well, I certainly don't know. Which is why I wrote the hub "HubPages, What Are You Thinking?"

Hey BlackJack, you can pretty much take it to the bank that a number of the senior moderators and suchlike in hubpages have ALSO been seriously contaminated by the new satanic religion of EVILution theory.

They even removed my question yesterday HERE :

http://hubpages.com/question/175892/why-does-the-k...

CAN someone complain about a question and get it removed also ??

Durrr, gee Olly...have read SO MANY OTHER questions that look like they encourage a discussion or whatever...NO DOUBT left in my mind now, some people just HATE The Truth...

Remember The Lord States Clearly that because the Lost world hates JESUS they will hate His Disciples also. Think history has proved this QED. Cetainly been my personal experience as far back as i can recall - AND, in my short foray into forums - this hatred is VIRULENT.

"From the abundance of the heart the mouth speaketh"

Will check out your "What are you thinking?" hub - thanks a lot.

On The Right Hand however, the humble, meek, kind, righteous and loving souls i have the distinct pleasure of recalling to mind, ESPECIALLY The Very Faithful Saved & Meek In The Church, they love me and help me and encourage me a LOT. The "New Jews" inside The Church HAVE been a real pain in the latrine though, this i CAN Testify to ALSO.

Made a series of Five Hubs here to reflect this sentiment above.

This One below Is The Fifth In The Special Series - Amen :

http://hubpages.com/religion-philosophy/-THE-REAL-...

All said and done, we HAVE to "Do The Work of The Evangelist" WITH True Love - JESUS Will Finish The Work, One Way or "another"

Amen & Maranatha †

"Preach the word; be instant in season, out of season; reprove, rebuke, exhort with all long suffering and doctrine."

Hey Elijah, looks like we got Rad Man's attention. I just hope he's paying attention to the information you are providing him with.

See the comment on my hub "Does the Bible Condone Rape?" for details.

Mighty brave of him to post what he did in the forums where he knows I can't respond, because I am arbitrarily and capriciously banned.


Rad Man 4 years ago

You asked me not to comment on your hubs anymore so I was and am respecting your request. I would like to continue this discussion, however only with mutual respect.

Love and Honour MUST be The Hallmarks of The True Christian Rad Man - Sure that BlackJack WILL entertain reading what you have to write. i sure will.

ALL that REALLY Matters in The End IS The Whole Truth and NOTHING but THE TRUTH - (and HE IS Helping us) - Amen †

For the record, personally, i ONLY "respect" OBJECTS.

Honour is my Favourite Word regarding people (souls).

Patience then ... hate those forums now anyway - A NIGHTMARE.

Blessings to you brother for being such a Great Host here. Going to read your Two Hubs now,,,,

Leaving with this :-

† 2 Peter 1 : 3 - 8 †

"Grace and peace be multiplied unto you through the knowledge of God, and of Jesus our Lord, according as his divine power hath given unto us all things that pertain unto life and godliness, through the knowledge of him that hath called us to glory and virtue:

Whereby are given unto us exceeding great and precious promises: that by these ye might be partakers of the divine nature, having escaped the corruption that is in the world through lust.

And beside this, giving all diligence, add to your faith virtue; and to virtue knowledge; and to knowledge temperance; and to temperance patience; and to patience godliness; and to godliness brotherly kindness; and to brotherly kindness charity.

For if these things be in you, and abound, they make you that ye shall neither be barren nor unfruitful in the knowledge of our Lord Jesus Christ."

Rad - read the Word above again SLOWLY - don't skip it, and then this COOL MUSIC is for you also - DILIGENCE IS KEY - ENJOY :

Hey Elijah, me and you are buddies now.

That's what Rad Man said on the "Why God Created Atheists" forum thread about an hour ago, so it must be true. Here's what he said:

I think I know who you are referring to. I also don't like the mocking and think it could always be said better. I have recently been attacked by a few who call themselves Christians, but threaten to hurt physically. He even threaten physical harm to a lady who was defending (and that's not even the correct word) me. He and his buddy were banned from the forums and he has been tracking and baiting me to comment on his hub. I guess I had forgotten that the fanatical Christians are the same as the fanatical muslims. I always say I've never meet a muslim I didn't like, but I've meet some Christians I didn't like, but then again it's perhaps because I've never meet a fanatical muslim.

Thanks for the kind words. I hope you and your family are well."

Yep, that's what he said.

I threatened him physically and I threatened physical harm to a lady friend who was defending him?

This village atheist has a real problem with reality, not to mention the 9th commandment regarding bearing false witness, like I mentioned on my "Does the Bible Condone Rape?

I wonder what this "report monkey" told HubPages?

Lol. This really is funny.

BLACKANDGOLDJACK 4 years ago from Blitzburgh area Author

calynbana, this situation might shed some light on the "air of hostility" you speak of between theists and atheists. There is more pertaining to the situation on my hub "Does the Bible Condone Rape?" where Rad Man has posted several times.

Rad Man falsely accused me of threatening him physically, and also his lady friend. He twisted some post I made in the forums into a story along those lines in his squealer report to HubPages. And I got banned. This was the third time.

The other two times were similar situations. These village atheists get all gung ho about beating down Christians who can't or won't bark back, but when confronted by a Christian who won't take their crap, they turn chicken crap. And play "report monkey" and we know why they love their brothers the monkeys.

These village atheists don't really want to discuss and debate "issues" with theists. These village atheists want to take cheap shots, and left with nothing else to say, they resort to "dirty tricks" tactics.

This hub and my hub "Does the Bible Condone Rape?" is a perfect example of that. Rad Man threw down the challenge, and I accepted it by writing a hub on the subject. He did comment on my hub "Does the Bible Condone Rape?" several times as I said, but he wants nothing to do with actually discussing the issue further.

Amen.

"Because that, when they knew God, they glorified him not as God, neither were thankful; but became vain in their imaginations, and their foolish heart was darkened."

Hey brother, take a deep read below. Paul Prophesied of this era of the false satanic theory-religion of that evolution garbage :

Elijah, you said, “† PROOF POSITIVE OF THE DIVINITY OF HOLY SCRIPTURE † - Notice the sodomy revolution atheist "side effects" of "worshipping" monkies as "ancestors" - NB : Think you are related to BEASTS ?? - End up ACTING like BEASTS - QED †”

The only problem with that statement is that you spelled monkeys incorrectly. Otherwise, it is brilliant.

Now you and I, we get our moral code from the Bible. Sure, we all fall short, and there are “issues” in the Bible that are subject to interpretation. I don’t know about you, but I don’t steal, commit adultery, bear false witness, etc., and I hate lying.

So where do atheists get their moral code? I think they make it up as they go along, with some help from Satan.

Take Rad Man here. He writes a hub entitled “Do we get our moral code from the Bible?” that is mostly nonsense. Surprise, surprise. That’s the hub he wants me to comment on so he can play "report monkey" again and accuse me of harassing him. Now Rad Man says in his hub we should get our morals from secular laws. Really? He says secular laws are not contradictory. Really? Slavery is the main example he uses in the hub. I guess he forgot about the Civil War.

So Obama says he supports gay marriage. Do we rely on secular laws to determine the right or wrong of this? Yeah, right. But what state’s secular laws? In some states same sex marriage is legal and in some states it is not.

So what does Rad Man do in all his morality? He falsely accuses me of threatening him physically and his lady friend also. What’s up with that? According to his moral code, is that not wrong? I know it is wrong according to my moral code.

I think I’m going to write a hub contradicting Rad Man’s hub. I think the title will be “Should We Get Our Morals from the Bible, Secular Law, Our Own Conscience, or Satan?”

Incidentally, there is a forum topic on page 1 entitled “Christians do really think we atheist have no morals?” started by peeples that is noteworthy for its lack of much of anything intelligible.

Unfortunately WE can’t post on it because WE are BANNED from the forums.

I guess we’ll have to adopt HubPages anti-Christian pro-gay agenda if we want to participate in the forums.

Elijah, do you want to be my girlfriend?

They should have an auto-spell check in the Comments fields for the entire hub-konggllommmerate.

This wood make a gooodd queestian ?

What the hard core antichristian community (totally outta the closet in this web domain) FORGETS is that EVERY SINGLE Born Again Christian soul on the ENTIRE PLANET, "used to be SINNERS".

They DON'T UNDERSTAND. They just think we are ALL "holier than thou" and it IRKS THEM no end.

So, they seriously WANT "us" to come DOWN TO their level so they can THEN point the finger and say "seee" you're a sinner TOO.

It's complicated and VERY clever - "Temptation"...

The forums are a CAT-FIGHT.

The Revelation Of "Christ IN us" has YET to be understood by the atheist community.

Why ARE they atheist? Well, BECAUSE they hate Christianity (and Christians) for the aforesaid "sin" reasons, they don't WANT to be HATED themselves when they CONVERT...

So, staying atheist is THE EASY WAY OUT - no pressure - no commitment - carry on with the sinful lifestyle - carry on "playing the pointing finger game" - CARRY ON BLINDLY REFUSING to accept Holy Scripture Truth - IN THEIR FACES these days GLOBALLY and in these Hubs....

Brother, THIS IS A PRAYER, In The Almighty Name Of The Lord JESUS Christ HIMSELF, For God To CANCEL All of the Above IN THE ATHEIST mind, BY His Holy Power From Heaven † Amen & Amen †

As far as "we" ARE The Bride of Christ, BEING Cleaned By His Word, you are my "girlfriend"...

"Behold, I shew you a mystery; We shall not all sleep, but we shall all be changed, in a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trump: for the trumpet shall sound, and the dead shall be raised incorruptible, and we shall be changed.

For this corruptible must put on incorruption, and this mortal must put on immortality."

Good point, SwordofManticorE.

Since you are so astute, what do you think happened to Elijah who made the last post before yours? Click on his profile. He's gone.

Do you think maybe Elijah was taken up in a whirlwind? (2 Kings 2:1)

Do you think he might come back? I miss him. Sniffle, sniffle.

I don't know him and I don't know where he is and why his account is closed. Sorry.


BLACKANDGOLDJACK profile image

BLACKANDGOLDJACK 4 years ago from Blitzburgh area Author

Well, SwordofManticorE, perhaps Elijah will return one day, like Malachi said.

Now the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints teaches that the return of Elijah happened on April 3, 1836 when he met up with Joseph Smith.

Do you buy that?

If not, when do you think Elijah will return? A specific date like the LDS Church provides would be good.

Maybe Paul knows what happened to Elijah.

We need to get to the bottom of this mysterious disappearance.

BLACKANDGOLDJACK 4 years ago from Blitzburgh area Author

Well, SwordofManticorE, you must have heard this song about him somewhere along the line:

Days of Elijah

These are the days of Elijah,

Declaring the word of the Lord:

And these are the days of Your servant Moses,

Righteousness being restored.

And though these are days of great trial,

Of famine and darkness and sword,

Still, we are the voice in the desert crying

'Prepare ye the way of the Lord!'

Behold He comes riding on the clouds,

Shining like the sun at the trumpet call;

Lift your voice, it's the year of jubilee,

And out of Zion's hill salvation comes.

These are the days of Ezekiel,

The dry bones becoming as flesh;

And these are the days of Your servant David,

Rebuilding a temple of praise.

These are the days of the harvest,

The fields are as white in Your world,

And we are the labourers in Your vineyard,

Declaring the word of the Lord!

There's no God like Jehovah.

There's no God like Jehovah!
