All testaments of Bible are just politically motivated fairy tales. there are some good pieces there, but accepting it in whole is non-sense.

Well, I have to say I don't, and I'll admit I've never read the whole thing, but jsut one book (Leviticus) is full of so much bullshit, I couldn't really believe in it or God anymore.

I absolutely believe that the Bible is the inspired Word of God and is his "roadmap" for all of humanity.

4] Nevertheless these shall ye not eat of them that chew the cud, or of them that divide the hoof: as the camel, because he cheweth the cud, but divideth not the hoof; he is unclean unto you.
[5] And the coney, because he cheweth the cud, but divideth not the hoof; he is unclean unto you.
[6] And the hare, because he cheweth the cud, but divideth not the hoof; he is unclean unto you.
[7] And the swine, though he divide the hoof, and be clovenfooted, yet he cheweth not the cud; he is unclean to you.
[8] Of their flesh shall ye not eat, and their carcase shall ye not touch; they are unclean to you.

you sin if you eat pig....



[1] And the LORD spake unto Moses, saying,
[2] Speak unto the children of Israel, saying, If a woman have conceived seed, and born a man child: then she shall be unclean seven days; according to the days of the separation for her infirmity shall she be unclean.
[3] And in the eighth day the flesh of his foreskin shall be circumcised.
[4] And she shall then continue in the blood of her purifying three and thirty days; she shall touch no hallowed thing, nor come into the sanctuary, until the days of her purifying be fulfilled.
[5] But if she bear a maid child, then she shall be unclean two weeks, as in her separation: and she shall continue in the blood of her purifying threescore and six days.
[6] And when the days of her purifying are fulfilled, for a son, or for a daughter, she shall bring a lamb of the first year for a burnt offering, and a young pigeon, or a turtledove, for a sin offering, unto the door of the tabernacle of the congregation, unto the priest:
[7] Who shall offer it before the LORD, and make an atonement for her; and she shall be cleansed from the issue of her blood. This is the law for her that hath born a male or a female.
[8] And if she be not able to bring a lamb, then she shall bring two turtles, or two young pigeons; the one for the burnt offering, and the other for a sin offering: and the priest shall make an atonement for her, and she shall be clean.

you sin if you're not circumcized, you sin if you don't sacrifice animal carcasses


22] Thou shalt not lie with mankind, as with womankind: it is abomination.

sorry, if you're gay, you're burning in hell, baby!



13] 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.


[18] And if a man shall lie with a woman having her sickness, and shall uncover her nakedness; he hath discovered her fountain, and she hath uncovered the fountain of her blood: and both of them shall be cut off from among their people

No. There are some good things there, but for me it's impossible to believe in it all.

If I'm not mistaken, those are all lines from the old testament. To christians the new testament is more important. Most of the rules in the old testament were abolished by Paul who became the first pope. That's why christians eat pork and don't have to be circumcised, unlike jews.

To me the bible is nothing more than an interesting book of fairytales.

You have to read all of the Bible if you are going to try and attack it. When Jesus died on the cross for our sins, he was the sacrificial lamb, so from then on there was no need to sacrifice a lamb or bullock for our sins. After Jesus died and rose, those old rituals were no longer needed. If you notice, Jewish people don't eat pig because they still follow the old laws, but Christians/gentiles are under the new law and can eat pork.
