Scriptures That Indicate the Bible Was Not Inspired By God

Introduction:Since one-third of the world is Christian, and believe the Bible to be the inspired word of God, most people will not agree with this list, and probably won't bother to read it.

Be that as it may, I'm at the point where I can no longer shy away from, or be afraid to speak out against this "Holy Book." The loving presence in the universe that we call God, would not have influenced men to write such balderdash.

Bible apologist will argue that many scriptures written long ago, are not applicable today. If you use this argument, it would also be valid for the scriptures that don't have evil overtones.

Either way, excuses do not nullify the fact that many of the purported word's from God almighty, have very sinister connotations. Furthermore, if a theme comes from the heart of an individual, or in the bible's case, emanated from God's spirit, these laws and spiritual commandments would be immutable. In other words, if it made sense 2000 years ago, the meaning and relevance would not change today.

What happened between then and now? Did God have a change of heart? Did God see the errors of his ways? Did God finally come to terms that women should not be the spoils of war? Did God finally come to the realization that homosexuals are people too?

    Deuteronomy 20:10-18

    "As you approach a town to attack it, first offer its people terms for peace. If they accept your terms and open the gates to you, then all the people inside will serve you in forced labor. But if they refuse to make peace and prepare to fight, you must attack the town. When the LORD your God hands it over to you, kill every man in the town. But you may keep for yourselves all the women, children, livestock, and other plunder. You may enjoy the spoils of your enemies that the LORD your God has given you. But these instructions apply only to distant towns, not to the towns of nations nearby. "As for the towns of the nations the LORD your God is giving you as a special possession, destroy every living thing in them. You must completely destroy the Hittites, Amorites, Canaanites, Perizzites, Hivites, and Jebusites, just as the LORD your God has commanded you. This will keep the people of the land from teaching you their detestable customs in the worship of their gods, which would cause you to sin deeply against the LORD your God."

    This one is rather long so I'll break it down piece by piece.

    "As you approach a town to attack it."

    The Divine Loving Presence in the universe would not have any interest in attacking a town, under no circumstances, but man would, that is why MAN wrote it.

    "Accept your terms."

    Are these terms fair or is it another Roman, hostile takeover?

    "When the Lord hands it over to you, kill every man in the town."

    The barbarity of that statement speaks for itself.

    "But you may keep for yourselves all the women, children, livestock, and other plunder."

    Synonyms for "plunder" are: booty, goods, loot, pillage, prize, trappings, winnings. So people during biblical times saw women as plunder.

    Dress it up how you like, it is what it is. The fact that such nonsense has not been removed from this Holy Book, should definitely force logical thinkers to at least remove the "Holy" tag from the book.

    "Destroy every living thing in the town, this keeps people of the land from teaching you their detestable customs in the worship of their gods."

    So much for diversity.

    Numbers 31:7-18

    "Moses, Eleazar the priest, and all the leaders of the people went to meet them outside the camp. But Moses was furious with all the military commanders who had returned from the battle. "Why have you let all the women live?" he demanded. "These are the very ones who followed Balaam's advice and caused the people of Israel to rebel against the LORD at Mount Peor. They are the ones who caused the plague to strike the LORD's people. Now kill all the boys and all the women who have slept with a man. Only the young girls who are virgins may live; you may keep them for yourselves."

    The character of Moses was played so flawlessly by Charlton Heston in Cecil B. DeMille's epic version of "The Ten Commandments." Yul Brynner was excellent as Rameses, and Anne Baxter was an exquisite Nefretiri.

    Not once did we hear Moses say, "kill all the boys and all the women who have slept with a man, and take the virgins for yourself."

    We didn't hear it in "The Ten Commandments," we didn't hear it in "The Story of Moses." Why? Because the writers and directors of these type movies (although fiction, the storyline comes straight from the Bible), want you to have the watered-down version of the biblical story.

    Deuteronomy 21:18-21

    "If a man have a stubborn and rebellious son, which will not obey the voice of his father, or the voice of his mother," "Then shall his father and his mother lay hold on him, and bring him out unto the elders of his city." "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." "And all the men of his city shall stone him with stones, that he die."

    This one is laughable. The kids today wouldn't stand a chance if these ridiculous scriptures were taken literally.

    Leviticus 20:13

    "If a man has sexual relations with a man as one does with a woman, both of them have done what is detestable. They are to be put to death; their blood will be on their own heads."

    This scripture pretty much speaks for itself. Makes you wonder though, why contemporary Christians get so upset with Westboro Baptist Church members and their teachings, because they are simply heeding "the word," as it is written. They are not sugar-coating it, they don't cherry-pick, as many Christians do with the Bible, and Muslims do with the Qur'an.

    I most certainly do not agree with what this group stands for, I'm just calling it as I see it in regards to the Westboro cult. A third of the world is reading, worshiping, and adhering to the exact same book.

    Ezekiel 4:12-15

    "Eat the food as you would a loaf of barley bread; bake it in the sight of the people, using human excrement for fuel." 13 The Lord said, "In this way the people of Israel will eat defiled food among the nations where I will drive them." Then I said, "Not so, Sovereign Lord! I have never defiled myself. From my youth until now I have never eaten anything found dead or torn by wild animals. No impure meat has ever entered my mouth." "Very well," he said, "I will let you bake your bread over cow dung instead of human excrement."

    Are you kidding me? SMH .. What the heck is this? Somebody please explain, because I must be missing something here?

    That's a rhetorical question, because it's nothing ANYONE, not even the Pope himself (and don't get me started on the Vatican and the Roman Catholic Church), can say to change my opinion regarding a book I view, as the most divisive, the most destructive literary instrument ever written, bar none.

    response to dptstretch ..

    "Meant to be cleared up latter?" Come on, you can do better than that.

    Here are the words from one of the great leaders and teachers of biblical folklore, Moses (Numbers 31:14-18),

    "Have you spared all the women?" "Now therefore, kill every male among the little ones, and kill every woman who has known man intimately. But all the girls who have not known man intimately, spare for yourselves."

    How can any sane individual defend this statement? If you or I said something like that today (this should have been applicable 2000 years ago; the fact that this type of malevolent, medieval rhetoric appears in what is supposed to be a HOLY BOOK, is ridiculous), we would be placed under arrest.

    The primary reason people defend the plethora of archaic scriptures in the bible is because of massive, historical, and hereditary BRAINWASHING.

    Spoken like a true religiously conditioned individual.

    I'm a Christian and would have to read this several times and do a lot of prayer and study to comment on each point. My brief answer would be that there are things that are in the Bible that perhaps are in the Bible and inspired by God and are meant to be cleared up later. For instance, Moses gave people the right to issue a decree of divorce...and it's in the Bible...Jesus corrected that. We don't stone people, but the Israelites did...is that right? Well...I suppose when someone else creates a world and want different rules, that will be their decision to make.
