What happens when we apply the Bible in real life?

Many Christians claim that the Bible is “God’s Word” and should be used as a guide to right and moral living. Is this true? Let’s look at an example.

What happens if we take Exodus Chapter 21, verse 20:

If a man beats his male or female slave with a rod and the slave dies as a direct result, he must be punished, but he is not to be punished if the slave gets up after a day or two, since the slave is his property.

And combine it with Luke Chapter 12 verse 47, in which Jesus says:

That servant who knows his master’s will and does not get ready or does not do what his master wants will be beaten with many blows.

What happens when we apply these “right and moral” verses in real life? We get this:

LIFE: Rear view of former slave revealing scars on his back from savage whipping

If you are a Christian and your conscious mind is beginning to see that the Bible is a ridiculous book, you can learn more here:

    I wonder if christians’ prayers to god also look like garbled text messages…
    I sure hope he doesn’t judge people for their grammar and spelling!

    hannah13, your eloquence is a stunning reminder of the depth and veracity of your religious beliefs.

    Your heart warming ability to be compassionate and informed and open to discussion is breathtaking and will not soon be forgotten. The threats in veils of burlap … ah! It is but to chortle!

    As a fine example of Christianity, please post more!

    Really!

    What I mean is this; (translated)

    Preach bubba! Preach! Them there he-a-thans willen gets yr wiss-ee-dom. Bring it on! Wahoooooooooooooooooo!!!! DOGGIE!

    Now, someday, if you eventually get enough money for a brain transplant, may I recommend upgrading to a macaque?
