Morality Probably Doesn’t Come From Bible
April 21, 2011 1 Comment
Is the Bible the source of morality? Many people think not.
How can this book be an arbiter of morality when God advocates the killing of people for adultery, for disrespecting their parents, homosexuality, masturbation (or was that coitus interruptus), kidding old bald people…things we do not even consider crimes today. How does this morality stand up to the fact that God directed the Hebrews to molest, kill, rape (save the young virgins though), destroy, and enslave people, to bash babies against a wall, to run a sword through the abdomen of pregnant women? Whole tribes and cities…this is certainly Bronze Age human mentality at work…not a God.
There are countries around the world who don’t worship a Christian God and they have as much morality as anybody. Thinking back over the disgraced Christian church leaders and ministers, priests, etc., in Christian lands–they may have even more morality…and they certainly didn’t get it from the Bible.
Some of the countries who are lowest in religious belief are some of the safest places on earth.
The Christian God himself (if he were real, which is debatable) has committed inexcusably horrible, and depraved acts… that God is an utterly immoral being.
Morality does not necessarily flow from the Christian Bible, it has many other sources.
Did you know?
In California now the police can search your cell phone without a warrant if you are arrested. However if you put the cell phone in your cars glove-box or trunk they need a warrant to get to it. And, if you’re using an Apple iPhone of course that means your every movement for the last year is available to The Man. This countries getting more and more like a communist state. Seems the fourth amendment is going the way of first amendment freedom of speech.
