Yeah, the loving caring 'bible' is filled with horrors of killing etc.
But... he loooooooooooooooooooooooovesss you!

Most people are not even aware of this. And Christians steeped to deep into their belief try to rationalize it all away.

Some examples of the 'love' in the bible:

Quote:
"And it came to pass, that at midnight the LORD smote all the firstborn
in the land of Egypt, from the firstborn of Pharaoh that sat on his
throne unto the firstborn of the captive that was in the dungeon; and
all the firstborn of cattle." (Exodus 12:29)

"Now therefore, kill every male among the little ones, and kill
every woman who has known man by lying with him. But all the young girls
who have not known man by lying with him, keep alive for yourselves."
(Moses - Numbers 31:17)

"And the LORD our God delivered him before us; and we smote him, and his
sons, and all his people. And we took all his cities at that time, and utterly
destoyed the men, and the women, and the little ones, of every city
we left none to remain:" (Deuteronomy 2:33-34)

"And the LORD said unto me, 'Fear him not: for I will deliver him, and all
his people, and his land, into thy hand; and thou shalt do unto him as
thou didst unto Sihon king of the Amorites, which dwelt at Heshbon'.......
And we utterly destroyed them, as we did unto Sihon king of Heshbon,
utterly destroying the men, women, and children, of every city."
(Deuteronomy 3:2-6)

"This is what the LORD says: Now go and smite Amalek, and
utterly destroy all that they have; do not spare them, but kill both
man and woman, infant and suckling, ox and sheep, camel and ass ....'
And Saul ... utterly destroyed all the people with the edge of the sword."
(1 Samuel 15:3,7-8)

"And Nathan departed unto his house. And the LORD struck the child that
Uriah's wife bare unto David, and it was very sick... And it came to
pass on the seventh day, that the child died..." (2 Samuel 12:15-18)

"And he went up from thence unto Bethel: and as he was going up by the
way, there came forth little children out of the city, and mocked him,
and said unto him, Go up, thou bald head; go up, thou bald head.
And he turned back, and looked on them, and cursed them in the name of
the LORD. And there came forth two she bears out of the wood, and tare
forty and two children of them." (2 Kings 2:23-24)

"Every one that is found shall be thrust through; and every one that is
joined unto them shall fall by the sword. Their children also shall be
dashed to pieces before their eyes; their houses shall be spoiled, and
their wives ravished...... Their bows also shall dash the young men to
pieces; and they shall have no pity on the fruit of the womb; their eye
shall not spare children." (Isaiah 13:15-18)

"Prepare slaughter for his children for the iniquity of their fathers; that
they do not rise, nor possess the land, nor fill the face of the world with
cities... For I will rise up against them, saith the LORD of hosts..."
(Isaiah 14:21-22)

"And I will dash them one against another, even the fathers and
the sons together, saith the LORD: I will not pity, nor spare, nor have
mercy, but destroy them." (Jeremiah 13:14)

"The hands of the pitiful women have sodden their own children: they
were their meat in the destruction of the daughter of my people. The
Lord hath accomplished his fury; he hath poured out his fierce anger, and
hath kindled a fire in Zion, and it hath devoured the foundations thereof."
(Lamentations 4:10-11)

"And the Lord said unto him,... And to the others he said in mine hearing,
Go ye after him through the city, and smite: let not your eye spare, neither
have ye pity: Slay utterly old and young, both maids, and little children,
and women: but come not near any man upon whom is the mark; and begin
at my sanctuary. Then they began at the ancient men which were before the
house." (Ezekiel 9:4-6)

"Behold, I will cast her into a bed, and them that commit adultery with
her into great tribulation, except they repent of their deeds. And I
will kill her children with death; and all the churches shall know that
I am he which searcheth the reins and hearts: and I will give unto every
one of you according to your works." (Jesus - Revelation 2:22-23)


Christians know deep down inside that these atrocities committed by God and his followers are wrong, inhumane, and immoral, yet they have to rationalize them away and make sense out of them to fit their beliefs, as explained in earlier. And that’s what’s sad about this, to be so locked up by your fanatical beliefs that you ignore your natural basic decency and morals. Some though, are so deeply bothered by it that they eventually fall away from the faith.




Amen!

The Gideons put Bibles in motel rooms. I picked one one night up and read part of it for the first time in my life, the section entitled of The Song of Solomon. It poetically describes the body of a woman. Quite nice!

@OldGrumpy,
The Bible is a true historical manuscript. Like most historical novels, wars and death are involved. But so is love, and mercy and forgiveness. I would suggest you start reading the Bible by reading the book of John, and learn who Jesus really is and what his life was meant to teach us. Even though the Bible is put together in historical order, it is best understood by reading the New Testament first, then the books of the Old Testament make more sense.

@sherril2291,
There is absolutely no way that the "bible is a true historical manuscript." The historical errors in the document are numerous and blatant. When you say "Like most historical novels" you have, whether you understand it or not, acknowledged that it is fiction and not fact.

Well, then you must be able to give some proof or evidence of this, can you?

Children were abused for decades in Catholic homes, Scottish inquiry finds

A public inquiry has found that nuns, priests and staff at two Scottish children’s homes subjected children to regimes of fear, physical and sexual abuse for many decades.

In its first interim report, published on Thursday, the Scottish child abuse inquiry (SCAI) found that boys and girls housed in two Catholic residential homes in Lanarkshire were systematically starved of love, dignity and compassion.

Lady Smith, the commission’s chair, said many children at Smyllum Park in Lanark and Bellevue House in Rutherglen, run by the Daughters of Charity of St Vincent de Paul (DoC), were abused by the adults charged with their care.

“For many children who were in Smyllum and Bellevue, the homes were places of fear, coercive control, threat, excessive discipline and emotional, physical and sexual abuse, where they found no love, no compassion, no dignity and no comfort,” she said.

And don't think this is an exception, no no, it's the rule!
