The bible told me so

This section is dedicated to classic examples of scripture that allow Christians to perpetrate quite an array of otherwise questionable practices. But It says so in the Bible!... Pick your position and there's a suitable bible quote to give your cause some holy righteousness:


We don't need to care about the environment

One distinguishing characteristic of Christianity is the total dearth of scripture suggesting even for a moment that Christians should care about the environment, which may explain why so many Christians are in denial about global climate change. The bible makes it clear, everything on earth exists to serve man, specifically the followers of the Yaweh:

- Genesis 9:3:

Every moving thing that liveth shall be meat for you; even as the green herb have I given you all things."

Women should serve men

The bible makes it quite clear, the role of women:

- I Corinthians 11:8-9:

For the man is not of the woman; but the woman of the man. Neither was the man created for the woman; but the woman for the man.

Women should shut up and listen to men

- 1 Timothy 2:12

I do not permit a woman to teach or to have authority over a man; she must be silent.:


Let's steal from non-Christians

Ask God and he'll give you whatever you want from the "heathens" - God says it's your inheritance:

- Psalms 2:8:

"Ask of me, and I shall give thee, the heathen for thine inheritance, and the uttermost parts of the earth for thy possession."

Let's discriminate against handicapped people

God can't stand the sight of crippled people. The blind, the lame, dwarfs, people with funny noses or blemishes, with damaged testicles, or broken hands or feet, crooked backs, or who have scurvy or scabs, or who have anything superfluous must not approach the altar of God.

- Leviticus 21:17-21:

Whosoever he be of thy seed in their generations that hath any blemish, let him not approach to offer the bread of his God. For whatsoever man he be that hath a blemish, he shall not approach: a blind man, or a lame, or he that hath a flat nose, or any thing superfluous, Or a man that is brokenfooted, or brokenhanded, Or crookbackt, or a dwarf, or that hath a blemish in his eye, or be scurvy, or scabbed, or hath his stones broken; No man that hath a blemish of the seed of Aaron the priest shall come nigh to offer the offerings of the LORD made by fire: he hath a blemish; he shall not come nigh to offer the bread of his God.

Let's murder someone who disagrees with us

When you hear stories of people who say "god" told them to kill so-and-so, you probably think they're extra nuts, because God surely would never say that. Well, think again. He not only says it; he commands it. Non-believers must be killed. Actually, it seems if you're even unwilling to listen to the priest, you should be put to death.

- Deuteronomy 17:12:

And the man that will do presumptuously, and will not hearken unto the priest that standeth to minister there before the LORD thy God, or unto the judge, even that man shall die: and thou shalt put away the evil from Israel.

Let's murder fortune tellers and people who predict things

The bible makes it quite clear, making prophesy is grounds for death.

- Zechariah 13:3:
If a man still prophesies, his parents, father and mother, shall say to him, "You shall not live, because you have spoken a lie in the name of the Lord." When he prophesies, his parents, father and mother, shall thrust him through.

We have to stay away from atheists

Aside from being a threat to your carefully-crafted delusions of self-importance in the Universe, the bible also suggests you shouldn't associate with non-believers. Non-believers are "wicked":

- 2 Corinthians 6:14-16:

Do not be yoked together with unbelievers. For what do righteousness and wickedness have in common? Or what fellowship can light have with darkness? What harmony is there between Christ and Belial[b]? What does a believer have in common with an unbeliever? What agreement is there between the temple of God and idols?

Nonebelievers are the antichrist

Ironically, the only mention of the the "antichrist" in the bible as is relating to someone who disbelieves in Christ:

- 2 John 1:7 Many deceivers, who do not acknowledge Jesus Christ as coming in the flesh, have gone out into the world. Any such person is the deceiver and the Antichrist.:

We can do what we want as long as we have faith, deeds don't matter

- Ephesians 2:8-9

For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God: Not of works, lest any man should boast.:
