When many people are asked why they became an atheist, they respond with something along the lines of “I started reading the Bible.” Here are a few of the many verses that may lead someone to say that:
1. 1 Peter 2:18
“Servants, be submissive to your masters with all fear, not only to the good and gentle, but also to the harsh.”
Yes, servants are supposed to just submit to their masters even if they get beaten in the process.
2. Deuteronomy 23:1
“He who is emasculated by crushing or mutilation shall not enter the assembly of the LORD.”
So, if you lose your dick, you can’t get into heaven? What about people who had testicular cancer? Sorry, guys. But, circumcision is okay, though. Hypocritical much?
3. Leviticus 20:9
“For everyone who curses his father or his mother shall surely be put to death. He has cursed his father or his mother. His blood shall be upon him.”
How is this justified?! If you get into an argument with your parents, you get put to death?! That’s ridiculous.
4. Deuteronomy 21:18-21
“God commanded: If a father has a stubborn, rebellious son, murder the son.”
What happened to “Thou shalt not kill.” The Bible is full of contradictions.
5. Leviticus 21:18-19
“For any man who has a defect shall not approach: a man blind or lame, who has a marred face or any limb too long, a man who has a broken foot or broken hand, or is a hunchback or a dwarf, or a man who has a defect in his eye, or eczema or scab, or is a eunuch.”
So, I guess you must be a perfect male specimen to get into Heaven.
