The whole christian religon is based on fear and hate. Why eles must you be saved. Everyone must be saved from what.

The bible was constructed by the Emperor Constantine and others for political reason. Lots and lots of content was left out and new stuff that greatly alters much of the New Testiment teaching is not being acknowledged. It is also sexist.

It's understandable to think of love in the OT in terms of love for God or love for his commandments and apart from that see nothing but hate for those who don't accept that god or break his laws. You can see lots of evidence of hatred in Leviticus and Deuteronomy where the curse is laid out for those who won't live according to the law. Very few people comment on the blessings. And even fewer talk about the laws demanding right behaviour towards the alien residents in the land, along with the duty towards widows and orphans. One of the most enlightened laws concerned the freedom from servitude which came about legally during years of Jubilee. According to the OT, the laws were not obeyed so that the love of God could shine through and that's why they lost the blessing and suffered the curse of annihilation or exile.

Posted by KynleiThis is so sad. I'd say that religion sucks, but you all know that already.

Posted by KynleiMy aunt shared this on facebook. This is a stupid and dangerous way of thinking about it. I hate it and the people who believe it.
