Why do so many people not like the Bible?


Individuals that can't read may not like the Bible because they can't read it.

    I don't hate anyone but I do disagree with peoples lifestyle choices. Are you talking about gays, muslims, etc? Well I am sure they disagree with Christians. We don't preach violence but that quran does!

    Yeah I always think I am so smart. As a HS sophomore my IQ was 113. After college I thought it would be higher so I took another IQ test and found it went down to 111. I dare not take the test again. I no longer have a day-job as I am retired.

    Well the old testament is not laws for living today, that would be the new testament. Maybe you shoulda read the whole thing through.

    That is why it seems violent and not applicable. God was an angry God in the old days who had rules, now its faith!

    I can agree on Sufism (the Persian Masnavi etc.). I also don't have a problem with that kind of peaceful mysticism.

    But Salafism, wahabism... Some Hadiths and Sharia law is particularly violent, totalitarian and closeminded.

    Christians are not told to kill in modern times, however the quran does tell its modern followers too. You know there is a Christian genocide in the middle east by islam. The Christian religion is not the inspiration for the terrorist attacks!

    I stopped believing when I read the Bible and realized that's not where my morals came from. The Bible often makes people judgmental, prejudiced and hateful toward others. I want to treat everyone with dignity and respect, which is a higher standard.

    Cedric, are you seeing Jay C OBrien answer? You have God the Father, you have God the Son, you Peter the God. The Father rested on the Sabbath. He cannot break his covenant. Christ came, built his church on Peter. Confused?

    Religious texts can take away moral responsibility because believers can place the blame for their bad behavior on God. He's the one who wants them to hate gays, oppress their wives, beat their kids, or shoot people at Planned Parenthood.

    The Heavenly Father also hate things in the Bible, but I don't hate anyone. God has the right to hate, He's the Most High God. You can know something beyond others as well, if you practice feeding your true being which is your spirit.

    JC Rev 20:4 says Judgement was given them.

    Acts 17:31 says he will judge the inhabited earth.

    Hebrews 13:4 clearly says he will judge fornicators and

    Adulterers.

    JC you pick scriptures of true sayings but misunderstand.

    The bible is about the Jews (God's chosen people). They were in slavery, and learned the ways of the Egyptians.The laws were given to break those learned ways. Christ came to save from the misinterpreted laws.

    Read the seven churches in revelation. God punishes, but He also sets standards, give warnings, and offers salvation over and over again. Like mocking Christ on the cross, most people see God as a wimp till He does what He says He is going to do.

    The problem JC is you are saying the Father is Jesus not so , the Father is still over Jesus and the son works with the Father. Jesus explains the Father to us because of their close relationship.

    My favorite true-story in the Bible is where Tamar disguises herself as a prostitute and gets impregnated by Judah and has twins. One of those, Perez, is in the lineage of Jesus. FYI - the movie "Year One" with Jack Black & Olivia Wilde is a rio

    The bible is - history of people sanctified by God; people who distort the teachings/laws/punishment of God; a savior who broke the curse; inclusion of the Gentiles; prophets being punished for preaching the gospel/not liking the bible is the bible

    The written word of God and is our handbook not only for this life but forever. Will you spend eternity in Heaven with the virgin-born Son of God Jesus the Christ OR in the lake of fire with the Kenyan-born son of a pornstar Obama the Antichrist?

    Only men have a say? God could potentially kill? Gay persons deserve punishment? Which bible are you reading? God is merely trying to set things straight. A lot of time his chosen people are merely punished to lead them to the right of doing things.

    If you take the older ones and you look up what those words meant back in the day they are very similar. The story isn't tarnished. Some people just don't like the conviction parts of the Bible... there is always a but though and some redemption!(:
