    Everybody knows that there are a great number of crazy verses in the Bible.
    What are your suggestions ?

    I'll kick off with these from Luke chapter 14, verses 12 to 14

    "When you are organizing a night out or a dinner party,
    don't invite your friends, relatives or neighbours.
    Instead invite the poor, the maimed, the lame, the blind."

    Deuteronomy 21:18-21King James Version (KJV)
    18 If a man have a stubborn and rebellious son, which will not obey the voice of his father, or the voice of his mother, and that, when they have chastened him, will not hearken unto them:
    19 Then shall his father and his mother lay hold on him, and bring him out unto the elders of his city, and unto the gate of his place;
    20 And they shall say unto the elders of his city, This our son is stubborn and rebellious, he will not obey our voice; he is a glutton, and a drunkard.
    21 And all the men of his city shall stone him with stones, that he die: so shalt thou put evil away from among you; and all Israel shall hear, and fear.


    1 Timothy 6:10King James Version (KJV)
    10 For the love of money is the root of all evil: which while some coveted after, they have erred from the faith, and pierced themselves through with many sorrows.

    That stoning method of capital punishment is not very popular nowadays, although I read somewhere that it may be used on women who wear trousers.

    First Corinthians 7:1 It is good for a man not to touch a woman.

    Colossians Chapter 3 Verse 18 (which I suspect was written by a man)....

    "Wives, submit yourselves unto your own husbands"

    Just sounds like the implications is some wives were submitting to other other husbands

    You're right. It does sound like that. Well spotted and amusing.

    Love the Lord thy God with all your heart and with all your soul.

    It is not possible to love a person simply by being told to do so. If you command me to pick up sticks, I can do it, but if you command me to love the guy next door, I can't do it. In any case, he's already married and I don't fancy him. We chat over the fence, but I have no desire to cuddle him.

    And it is hypocritical. Obviously, god does not love humans that much.

    In the Bible God repeatedly threatens to killed everybody and/or torture them in Hell for ever.
    I love my kids, but I sometimes have to lock them in the basement with rats and no food, but only for a few days.

    Most Christians admit there are "crazy verses in the Bible" but rarely hear them in Church or Chapel because "religious organisations" that live off that wonderful Book don't want their income affected.
    You should concentrate on the good verses to get the truth.
    Even atheists know the good verses because they cannot find fault.
    How do we know the truth ?
    Let the Light of God guide you !
