    Bible Passages That Leave You Scratching Your Head

    Oh, yes; I'm going there.

    And before you say "Well, it really means..."

    Save it. Because you DON'T know what it means. All you know is what it SAYS. I could show any of these verses to ten offended Christians, and I'll get ten different explanations for what they "really mean."

    All any of us can go on, is what these verses SAY.

    I'll start:

    Deuteronomy 22:28-29
    28 “If a man finds a young woman who is a virgin, who is not betrothed, and he seizes her and lies with her, and they are found out, 29 then the man who lay with her shall give to the young woman’s father fifty shekels of silver, and she shall be his wife because he has humbled her; he shall not be permitted to divorce her all his days.
    Hmmm... a woman who is a rape victim is required to marry her rapist. Interesting! I suppose that if we have the Judeo-Christian equivalent of Sharia in the US; if you see a hot chick that you want to marry, you know what you have to do!

    Luke 14:26
    26 “If anyone comes to Me and does not hate his father and mother, wife and children, brothers and sisters, yes, and his own life also, he cannot be My disciple.
    Many atheists will say that they believe Jesus was a great guy, as opposed to those who follow him.

    This verse right here is exactly why I'm not among those atheists.

    Or because you can't tolerate a different view point. It's ok to be close minded.

    Anger, bitterness, a grudge, resentment.

    Emotional baggage. Very difficult to exorcise. Takes a lot of hard work.

    Are you denying that what I'm saying is the case? Come on now, you're smarter than that!

    Does God love you? Are you sure he loves you? Are you sure that God doesn't, in fact, hate you?

    Malachi 1:2-3
    2 “I have loved you,” says the Lord.
    “Yet you say, ‘In what way have You loved us?’
    Was not Esau Jacob’s brother?”
    Says the Lord.
    “Yet Jacob I have loved;
    3 But Esau I have hated,
    And laid waste his mountains and his heritage
    For the jackals of the wilderness."
    God hated Esau, so God is capable of hate!

    You said you don't want to hear it. You've closed your mind. It's ok. Besides you've already written off anything I would say.

    Did not God create man, in his image? Is not man capable of many different emotions?
