First of all the video attempts to prove that Christians disobey Jesus.  In this it fails because it misinterprets what Jesus said.

Let me guess... your particular denomination out of the 38000 possible denominations has the one truely correct interpretation of the bible?

Sucks to be the other 37999, not to mention the other 66% of the population of the planet that's not christian. What makes you so special that your interpretation of the bible is the correct one?

So similarly, when Jesus said: "If your hand causes you to sin, cut if off", he was not advising us to get a saw and cut off our hands, but rather to remove any portion of our personal attitudes or behavior that was leading us into sin.

Interesting ... that's a metaphor... saying his body is bread and his blood is wine is a metaphor... so...

When the bible says Jesus fed thousands of people with a few loaves of bread and fish... is that meant to be taken as metaphor? How should I interpret this?

The bible claims Jesus fed 5000 people with 5 loaves of bread and 2 fish (Matthew 14:13–21, Mark 6:31-44, Luke 9:10-17 and John 6:5-15) and also 4000 people with 7 loaves of bread and 7 fish (Mark 8:1-9 and Matthew 15:32-39).

Metaphorical?

Similarly with most of your other demonstrations of supposed disobedience to Jesus, once His words are interpreted correctly your argument vanishes.

You would think that Jesus, the son of god and in essence god himself ... would have made their holy book... the supposedly most important book of all time... clear and easy to understand instead of a bunch of "metaphors". If it's god word it should mean what it says.

Fact is, you are interpreting the bible they way it makes sense to you.

You need to reconcile the vile disgusting verses written by primitive barberic men thousands of years ago with your own modern sense or morality. This leads to spinning, bending and twisting bible verses to mean what you want them to mean and not what they actually mean.

There is no god, there was no jesus (the the biblical character anyway) and the book is a bunch of myths written thousands of years ago. Our morality and understanding of the universe and our place in it has moved on vastly since then. Get with the times.
