Proof Christianity is evil

"If a man also lie with mankind, as he lieth with a woman, both of them have committed an abomination: they shall surely be put to death; their blood shall be upon them." Leviticus 20:13

"But God struck down some of the inhabitants of Beth Shemesh, putting seventy of them to death because they looked into the ark of the LORD. The people mourned because of the heavy blow the LORD had dealt them."- Samuel 6:19

"However, you may purchase male or female slaves from among the foreigners who live among you.  You may also purchase the children of such resident foreigners, including those who have been born in your land.  You may treat them as your property, passing them on to your children as a permanent inheritance.  You may treat your slaves like this, but the people of Israel, your relatives, must never be treated this way."  Leviticus 25:44-46

"Slaves, be subject to your masters with all reverence, not only to those who are good and equitable but also to those who are perverse." 1 Peter 2:18

"When a man sells his daughter as a slave, she will not be freed at the end of six years as the men are. If she does not please the man who bought her, he may allow her to be bought back again."
Exodus 21: 7-8

Christians have caused 2000 years of confusion. Regretfully the bible is totally misunderstood. It is a violent book. But if you are knowledgable about myths, it is easy to understand that the bible is nothing more than evolutionary and involutionary mysticism. Sadly, retarded Western man can not decipher a myth!

lol nope.

Side: Disagree

"lol nope." is your only response? Do you have any backing to show us why it isn't?

Side: Disagree

I have been here for almost 3 years on this site and I have debated with many people about this issue and others. I find it not worth my time to show backing to it because I don't feel like arguing over it anymore because people don't grasp a hold of what I say. So I just say no and move on.

I have. What about it?

Side: Disagree

I don't think it's inherently evil. At the time this may be seen as the "norm". In modern society things are different. Maybe in the distant future we may say the things we do now are evil. Who's to judge?

Side: Disagree

It intrigues me that you apparently place no stock in universal morality, yet also apparently still subscribe to the word evil as having some meaning or import. "Evil" is a word used solely to cast judgement against the universal immoral... and thus it is without substance within the moral relativist framework. Thoughts? Or do I misunderstand you?

Side: Agree

A little misunderstanding. What I mean is that it's not "evil" according to modern views. I was just trying to say that evil to you is not what it was then and may be different in the future. I am glad you have recognized my beliefs though.

Side: Disagree

That's proof that the Bible contains a lot of messed up passages... but I typically don't look at a Christian and think "evil!".

Side: Disagree

Why? They believe you are going to Hell for an eternity and deserve it.

That's what they believe... so they try to convert people. They think they're doing good. Though the Bible has passages that promote violence, how often do you see modern-day Christians actually following through with it? I'd say the only exception would be extremists... and every religion has those, even Buddhists.

Side: Disagree

Ah I see, according to this guy I'm evil.

Side: Disagree

But it is not wholly evil.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~There's some good within it to.

It is both Good and Evil coexisting with one another and maintaining the balance.

Therefore, it is balance/order and not good or evil.

Side: Disagree

These are some of the evil things in the bible that are evil they are the main reasons I'm not Christian anymore but none the less there is good in the bible and Christianity isn't completely evil.

I find them morally evil no one knows what evil actually is, in my opinion it's completely opinion based on how you see the world and I see killing someone for their sexuality, allowing slavery but not for Jews and all the other points are evil. I believe they're evil because I believe everyone deserves a choice and these (slavery especially) is taking away that choice. That's my opinion anyway. Christianity really needs to update if its to be accepted worldwide as in this day and age people have there own morals and a lot of what they read in the bible (which might have been ok in the bibles time) is morally wrong in this day and age (for most people).

Side: Agree

Objectionable, inefficient, and approaching obsolescence... yes. Evil, no. There is no evil. It is a judgement rendered against an assumed universal immoral that doesn't exist. It is a word as empty as the religions that lean so heavily upon it.

Side: Disagree

How can Christianity be evil when you can't define evil without Christianity? What is evil?

Side: Disagree

Creator. By warding off the Jews I am fighting for the Lord’s work.”)

7. Bombing of abortion clinics

8. Rwandan Genocide

Do you seriously believe that Christians are the only people ever to conceive of the notion of evil? The idea of evil predates Christianity considerably, and even if it did not you hardly have a monopoly on the idea. Not that I especially care since I do not personally believe in good or evil...

Side: Agree

Of course you can define evil without Christianity, Christians aren't the only people who have the concept of evil.

When something is evil it is very immoral and wicked which is exactly what Christianity is.
