If you are not a Christian, chances are that Christians can drive you nuts. But have you ever wondered why? What is it that is so annoying? This image summarizes one major element of the problem:
The dictionary defines hypocrisy as:
“a pretense of having a virtuous character, moral or religious beliefs or principles, etc., that one does not really possess.”
“the practice of professing standards, beliefs, etc, contrary to one’s real character or actual behaviour, esp the pretence of virtue and piety.”
Christians claim that the Bible is the word of their “god”. They pick parts out of the book that they claim to be vitally important, and often try to ram these parts down the throats of everyone else in society. But then Christians ignore all the parts of the Bible that they find uncomfortable. If the book contains the word of God and if Christians are not a hypocrites, Christians should follow the whole book – every single part of it.
Any intelligent person has two problems with the hypocritical cherry-picking approach. First, it smacks of hypocrisy of the highest order. Second, many of the “words of God” in the Bible are obviously repulsive and/or insane. Any intelligent person rejects the entire Bible because of the insanity it harbors. These two videos explain how ridiculous the Bible is:
When a book is that ridiculous, that repulsive and that insane, the entire book is thrown away and ignored by any intelligent person.
