This website is designed sex and violence in the bible spread the vicious truth about the Bible. For far too long priests and preachers have completely ignored the vicious criminal acts that the Bible promotes.
The so called God of the Bible makes Osama Bin Laden look like a Boy Scout. This God, according to the Bible, is directly responsible for many mass-murders, rapes, pillage, plunder, slavery, child abuse and killing, not to mention the killing of unborn children. It always amazes me how many times this God orders the killing of innocent people even after the Ten Commandments said Thou shall not kill. God also orders the destruction of 60 cities so that the Israelites can live there.
Just about every other page in the Old Testament has God killing somebody! In 2 Kings 10:18-27, God orders the murder of all the worshipers of a different god in their very own church! This type of criminal behavior should shock any moral person. Murder, rape, pillage, plunder, slavery, and child abuse can not be justified by saying that some god says it’s OK. If more people would actually sit down and read the Bible there would be a lot more atheists like myself. The God of the Bible also was a big fan of ritual human sacrifice and animal sacrifice. There are many more quotes on this topic at my Do Not Ignore the Old Testament web page.
I know that most Christians believe that God is a good and loving god, and wants people to do good things. I believe that most people want to do good things and behave morally. I also believe that many Christians haven’t really read the Bible, or just read certain passages in church. This is understandable, as the Bible is hard to read due to its archaic language and obscure references.

The texts have a history of interpretation within the Abrahamic religions and Western culture that includes justification for acts of violence as well as structural violence, and have also been used in opposition to violence. As a result, hamas may also refer to verbal, or even ethical violence. Early use of the term indicates the Israelites were not allowed to touch, possess, or redeem these “devoted things”. Levine says Exodus 33:5-16 is an example of early Hebrew ideology while noting Deut. Levine concludes this is one of several indications, including extra-biblical evidence, that herem was a later addition to Hebrew thought.
