Correction: NO, parts of the bible are far too antiquated to even try to apply to modern life. Like approving of having slaves, stoning women to death for adultery, etc. And, no writing should take precedence over your common sense. Good luck finding a fully "submissive" woman in the U.S., unless she's a doormat. Excepting of course consensual "bedroom" type activity between adults.
It also says women should not preach to men, yet there are several ordained ministers and even some bishops, who are women. Times change.
Don't forget that those books of the Bible were written a couple of thousand years ago, and over the years social mores change as well as societal mores. What was written was for those times, not for the present.
The bible says alot of things all have been translated by people that never met Jesus and were not living within 200 years of Jesus, that was the old testiment, and the new testiment was also translated many times over, the bible is a gateway for people that need some kind of answer to unanswered questions from someone that is not visable and only seems important to people when in need I used to pray to get women, when younger , but I also believed in the tooth fariy, the easter bunny, (laying eggs) and santa so the bible is one of the most read fiction books ever written (translated) by educated people that deep down know better but do not have the balls to admit its bull ****. Moses with all the wives and kids and he lived hundreds of years, The snake and the apple with adam and eve give me a break, the more you read the more you learn the truth.
The Bible says lots of things. For people to latch on to this or that passage while not following or excusing away others is simply ignorant. If you're a man who believes this, you better go read the rest of it and follow each and every passage literally as well.
If you're a woman who has been subjected to this, get the hell out of Dodge.
Maybe in school. NOT in a marriage. OH, and by the way this might not be the right category!
yes it dose. It is a truly sick and vile filthy dirty book and i hate very much that people think an ugly book like that is real. So stupid its shocking.
The bible say lots of stuff most of it contradictory more a guide book than law
I know it is bad manners to answer a question with a question but,What do you Know then? This stuff you know.how do you know it?Now to get back to your question like 100 percent of the people living or who have ever lived I know nothing at all about any GOD what so ever,Those people who collected all the scraps of doggerel, old wives tales and myths and published them as the bible knew nothing about GOD either, knew how to fool folks and enrich themselves though.
Or us it just stuff you think you know
