LOL you act like Gandhi posted it 30 hours ago. You know, some people are sometimes offline and can't post it in the next second.
That is all cute what Gandhi posted but have you ever heard of the old testament and the new testament? It's a shame that me as non-Christian knows more about the Bible than some Christians. Why does the Bible contradict itself by having a verse where it says how you should kill the enemies and the next verse is that you should love your enemies? Because it's not contradiction, it's because there is an old testament and a new testament.
Ever heard a priest or a mullah telling that all the religious people should go on the street and kill homosexuals and people with other religions?
Have you missed the news where the Pope travelled to Lebanon as an example of religious tolerance during the protests because of the prophet Mohammed movie?
Why is the Pope doing that when this is the opposite of what the Bible says in the links of what Gandhi posted?
Because Gandhi just searched for some links on Google and posted the first link without checking the facts. Because Gandhi proved what I posted that there is the old testament and the new testament. Because Gandhi proved what I posted that some Atheists act smart but they proved that they are uninformed when it comes to religion and even I as non-Christian can find reasonable explanation what the Bible says because I inform myself before posting about something
Oh boy, I make one facetious comment and this is what happens
You are talking about the actions of people when that was not what you were arguing. You argued and I quote:
There is no religion in the world who says violence or hate is the answer.
How ironic when Atheists claim how they are smart because they research but prove on the same time how stupid and uninformed they are when it comes to their own religion before they converted to Atheism
There is no "conversion" process but that's besides the point.
So Ghandi posted the examples in the scripture. As for the old Testament is violent and horrible and New Testament is all lovey and dovey argument. That has been refuted time and time again. Here are a few quotes from the New Testament:
Jesus recommends that to avoid sin we cut off our hands and pluck out our eyes. This advice is given immediately after he says that anyone who looks with lust at any women commits adultery. 5:29-30
Families will be torn apart because of Jesus (this is one of the few "prophecies" in the Bible that has actually come true). "Brother shall deliver up the brother to death, and the father the child: and the children shall rise up against their parents, and cause them to be put to death." 10:21
Any city that doesn't "receive" the followers of Jesus will be destroyed in a manner even more savage than that of Sodom and Gomorrah. 6:11
Jesus criticizes the Jews for not killing their disobedient children as required by Old Testament law. (See Ex.21:15, Lev.20:9, Dt.21:18-21) 7:9-10
Those who fail to bear "good fruit" will be "hewn down, and cast into the fire." 3:9
In the parable of the talents, Jesus says that God takes what is not rightly his, and reaps what he didn't sow. The parable ends with the words: "bring them [those who preferred not to be ruled by him] hither, and slay them before me." 19:22-27
Jesus believes people are crippled by God as a punishment for sin. He tells a crippled man, after healing him, to "sin no more, lest a worse thing come unto thee." 5:14
Those who do not believe in Jesus will be cast into a fire to be burned. 15:6
And so on and so forth...many examples. You can research yourself if you want.
Also here is a very interesting and insightful video on an entire bible passage from the new testament:
The New Testament has no passages of violence does it....
I know that there are many good people in the world who do follow religion. You are not proving anything to me by giving me examples of good deeds done by religious people. I've never argued religious people cannot be good people and it would be an utterly stupid argument to make. But to say that there are not religions who say that violence is not the answer is just simply not true when reading the scripture. Especially when you have people who follow this shit word for word.
