a challenge to christians

It’s my contention that the Bible is not the inspired holy book of any almighty deity, but a random collection of ramblings by some deluded men from one very small corner of our planet (because only the god God believes there are corners here).

I also contend that this hotch-potch of stories and opinions can be used to justify any belief or action that any person wants to imagine is the will of a god.

Want to have slaves? No problem. Want to ban slavery? No problem.

Want to have several wives and concubines? No problem. Want to have one wife and condemn those who have more than one? No problem.

Want to eat shellfish and pork? No problem. Want to consider it an abomination to eat shellfish and pork? No problem.

Want to judge every other human on the planet? No problem. Want to condemn those who judge every other human on the planet? No problem.

Want to treat women like second class citizens? No problem. Want women and men to be treated equally? No problem.

Want to treasure your children and care for them with due care and gentleness? No problem. Want to tell them they’re evil, beat them up or stone them? No problem.

Want to campaign against abortion? No problem. Want to rip open pregnant women or abort a child conceived outside of marriage? No problem.

So, my challenge to Christians is, what behaviour or attitude are you sure is not approved of in the Bible? I bet I can find a verse that disproves your belief.
