Reference for those attacked by bible verses...

Yesterday I recieved a card from an aunt of mine. While I was pregnant with my daughter she refused to acknowledge it even when I was 6 months pregnant and at her home for Christmas dinner. While she didn't say anything directly to me, she let my mother know that she couldn't see my daughter as a blessing - since she was being born out of wedlock.



The card she sent said that she recieved my Christmas card and the three of us looked precious. Then she wrote "John 14:15." Then she wrote a website of an online bible so I could look up what the bible verse meant.



I decided to look up a few bible verses of my own, and I thought I'd go ahead and put them here for anyone to use as a reference when their lifestyle, situation, or sexuality are being judged.



Matthew 7:1

"Do not judge, or you too will be judged"





Luke 6:37

"Do not judge, and you will not be judged. Do not condemn, and you will not be condemned. Forgive, and you will be forgiven."





Luke 6:41

"Why do you look at the speck of sawdust in your brother's eye and pay no attention to the plank in your own eye?"





John 8:7

"If any of you are without sin, let him be the first to throw a stone at her."





Romans 2:1

"You, therefore, have no excuse, you who pass judgement on someone else, for at whatever point you judge the other, you are condemning yourself, because you who pass judgement do the same things."





Romans 14:10

"You, then, why do you judge your brother? For we will all stand before God's judgment seat."





Romans 14:13

"Therefore let us stop passing judgment on one another. Instead, make up your mind not to put any stumbling block or obstacle in your brother's way."





1 Corinthians 4:5

"Therefore judge nothing before the appointed time; wait till the Lord comes. He will bring to light what is hidden in darkness and will expose the motives of men's hearts. At that time each will receive his PRAISE from God."



**I like how it says "PRAISE" not "eternal damnation"**





James 1:19

"My dear brothers, take note of this: Everyone should be quick to listen, slow to speak and slow to become angry"





James 4:11

"Don't speak evil against each other, dear brothers and sisters. If you criticize and judge each other, then you are criticizing and judging God's law. But your job is to obey the law, not to judge where it applies to you."





Luke 6:37

"Judge not - any man without full, clear, certain knowledge, without absolute necessity, without tender love"







So the loud angry righteousness some bible thumpers have when it comes to condemning people for their lifestyle, their choice in partner, their families, their sexuality, or a woman's right to chose.... is actually a perfect example of hypocricy. Just thought I'd go ahead and throw that out there.

Unless anyone here speaks ancient aramaic, all these debates about "this means this" and "that means that" are pretty much dependant on whos version of the bible you read. Considering most versions have been translated MANY times before they reached english, there are so many different interpretations in there and changes that I can't see any of them as being "the word of god".

Whoa hold on Julianne !!!



Jesus fed a multitude of people with loaves AND fishes !



The Gospels specifically mention Jesus keeping three Passover feasts in Jerusalem. However, in order to keep the feast, the participants were given roasted lamb, bitter herbs, and unleavened bread to eat (Exodus 12:3-4). The entire lamb had to be eaten during the feast. If there were any leftovers, they had to be burned (Exodus 12:10). If Jesus did not eat the lamb, he would have been violating the Law and could have been accused of sin.



"... observe the Passover to the LORD. 'In the second month on the fourteenth day at twilight, they shall observe it; they shall eat it with unleavened bread and bitter herbs. 'They shall leave none of it until morning, nor break a bone of it; according to all the statute of the Passover they shall observe it. 'But the man who is clean and is not on a journey, and yet neglects to observe the Passover, that person shall then be cut off from his people, for he did not present the offering of the LORD at its appointed time. That man will bear his sin." (Numbers 9:10-13)



The New Testament records that Jesus did eat the Passover feast, which would include the eating of the roasted lamb (Luke 22:14-15). In fact, before the last Passover meal, Jesus specifically instructs his disciples to prepare the meal, including the lamb, for their observance.



"Then came the first day of Unleavened Bread on which the Passover lamb had to be sacrificed. And Jesus sent Peter and John, saying, "Go and prepare the Passover for us, so that we may eat it."" (Luke 22:7-8)

Christians are not forbidden to eat meat. Any meat may be eaten except for blood and strangled animals (because the blood remains in the meat). Peter was commanded by God to kill and eat the animals God presented before him (Acts 10:9-16). Paul instructed Christians to eat anything sold in the meat market without question (I Corinthians 10:25-26).





Anyhoodle I am not religious but I have actually read the bible out of interest ( ok I skipped a few he begat so and so pages ) but your comments stuck out because it is so far from what is written .

That's because anyone trying to support any type of craziness could find some phrase in the bible to support it. Look at those crazy Westboro Baptist Church nutjobs.

Kristy, athiests turn to people or themselves for solace and thankfullness. If something goes right in my life it is because of hard work and sometimes luck. If something goes wrong it is all a part of life and we just work through it. We don't externalize things like religious people do. Actually that's not true, some of us probably lean quite heavily on freinds and family but we understand when it comes down to it that WE steer the course of our lives.

Jumpin' Jesus on a pogo stick, I got to page 5 and can't stand to read it all. Julianne you are so far from wrong it's not even funny. You say you don't believe in God and are not a Christian, yet you think you know what Christians believe - you are wrong, in everything you're stating and it's quite funny that you repeatedly tell others they are wrong.
Ugh, I'm skipping towards the end now, I really wish I was around for the beginning of this thread.

First of all, the Old Testament is NOT the first half of the Bible. Want to check this out? Get hold of a full Bible – that is the Old Testament and the New Testament in one book. Find the point where the New Testament begins, put your finger in that page and close the book with your finger in it. Right …. Is your finger halfway along? No, it’s not! And why? Because the Old Testament is a much larger book than the New Testament. It would be more correct to say that the Old Testament is the first PART of the Bible, not the first HALF!!! '

I have seen quite a few comments on this thread that, aside from religious beliefs are simply not factual!



QUOTE: from Julianne Marie:

“The jewish believe in just the first half of the bible, and refer to it as the bible. torah is just another word they use for the same book.”



QUOTE: from Mary Renee Reuter

“where does anyone get off saying the New Testament isn't a part of the Bible? The New Testament MAKES it the Bible. Otherwise it's the Torah... hiho.”



First of all, the Old Testament is NOT the first half of the Bible. Want to check this out? Get hold of a full Bible – that is the Old Testament and the New Testament in one book.

Secondly, it’s evident that no-one knows exactly what the Torah is. OK, the first five books of the Bible are Genesis, Exodus, Leviticus, Numbers and Deuteronomy. These five books are also known as:



The Five Books of Moses

The Pentateuch

or

The Torah.



The Torah is NOT another name for the Old Testament, it’s a name for the first five books of the Old Testament!!

Aww, Mary Renee...that really sucks that your family is so judgmental! And WTF with your sister!?!? I would have smacked her for saying something so nasty and rude.

You've got class, girl. Keep your head held high, and let them wallow in their own filth if that's what pleases them.

I've often said that the Bible is like a torture victim. Beat it enough and it will say anything.

[deleted account]

I think this just goes to show that you shouldn't take anything you read out of context. I mean really you can make the Bible say whatever you want if you take some of the reading out of context.

Recently our priest was talking about how although people do some bad things and we want to show them they shouldn't do it. It's just as bad to smear it in their faces and treat them badily because of it. Once an action is done it is between that person and God. All we can do is support that person and help them; in hope that the mistake wont be repeated.

[deleted account]

Nikki, pardon me but that woman is a bitch and I would avoid her company at all costs. If you feel like talking to her you may remind her that Jesus was also technically illegitimate since Mary was not married to Yahweh. Therefore he is both illegitimate and the product of premarital union.

ummm.... wow. Hell is forever? How about there's no hell. Philosophically, if God is merciful hell makes no sense, it's just motivation for people to do the right thing because of fear, rather than doing the right thing because you know it's right.

And dear Auntie, please don't pray for me. I'm doing just fine thank you. Pray for your own children, who are definitely having pre-marital sex, I guarantee you - they just don't tell you about it because you're a bible thumping Jesus freak.

Thank You Nikki! Since first posting this conversation, the issue has come up again. Two of my cousins have had children (both married) and their children are often referred to as miracles, while my daughter isn't acknowledged at all. Worst of all my sister has the balls to refer to their daughter as "The-First-Granddaughter." I said "What about my daughter!?" and she says "Well, first LEGITIMATE granddaughter"

It boils my blood! If we're throwing judgment around, one of my cousins is still paying child support on non-biological children he doesn't see anymore from a previous marriage and they're totally in debt and bringing a child in to this world AND formula feeding (sorry, not trying to bring this debate up). I breastfeed in spite of extreme difficulties (had to have a breast reduction due to scoliosis when I was 17) and have no debt - I'm just not married (and I'm not divorced either)

It's getting to the point where I love my mom, god bless her, but I really could care less about seeing her side of the family.

I am a very open minded person. With everything across the board but do believe people take on the parts of the Bible they agree with and don't actually know what they are talking about. The best agrgument I have heard about the Bible was from a Priest himself.
A mother approached him about her son attending service there. He as gay and commited suicide because he couldn't find acceptance. he family was very religious. She was very confused because she was alway taught that homosexuality is a sin..
The Prist responded by this " Yes the Bible does say this but if you continue to read just below that statement it also says all children who disobey sheall be stoned to death."
After readng this I relly truelly relized how many people select bits and pieces to preach and believe. All that I have ever really been taught that God loves all no exceptions. That is what we should live by and stop judging everyone else. That is God's way.

I personally think the bible is so hypocritical and it really irks me when people thin the bible is "God's word", as if, God himself wrote it.. MAN wrote it, and like the game of telephone, it has changed and been misinterpreted over the years. Also many people take metaphors literally. As was said before anyone can find a verse in the bible to support any crazy nonsense they wish to support. I personally think it is BS. Sorry but thats my opinion.

[deleted account]

"Hell is forever "

Do you honestly believe that punishing someone infinitely(because as you said, "Hell is forever") for a finite crime is just?

And to the original post, I just pull out Numbers 31:15-18

15And Moses said unto them, Have ye saved all the women alive?

16Behold, these caused the children of Israel, through the counsel of Balaam, to commit trespass against the LORD in the matter of Peor, and there was a plague among the congregation of the LORD.

17Now therefore kill every male among the little ones, and kill every woman that hath known man by lying with him.

18But all the women children, that have not known a man by lying with him, keep alive for yourselves.

(KJV version)

Um, right, Jennifer. So instead of her aunt talking to her and expressing her concerns and her love, she sends her a Christmas card with a reference to a Bible verse in it telling her to keep her god's commands.

A wee bit passive-aggressive, no? To me, that doesn't seem to be coming from a place of loving concern.

I also take full responsibility for my actions, and I lean on my husband, family, and friends when needed. However, I know that all of the blessings in my life didnt 'just happen" I have God to thank for them, and am very thankful for all of the amazing things in my life; the most important being my son♥

That's exactly it, Jenny. If things go badly in my life, I lean on my husband, my friends, my family, and my own self-reliance. When things go right, I chalk it up to effort, the generosity of other people, and luck.

I just don't understand this insistence that people need to believe in a deity in order to be fulfilled. I believe in love, friendship, nature, family, hard work, beauty, being kind to other people, optimism, and having integrity. All of those things have stood me in good stead and bring much more fulfillment to my life than religion ever did.

Cherish, just out of curiosity, what DO you believe? I believe in God, I believe in the Bible, I am a proud christian woman and my husband and I raise our son the same way... I am in no way putting you down for not believing and I feel everyone is entitled to their own opinions, but do you have a religion? What are your beliefs and who do you turn to when things go wrong and who do you thank when things go right? (Im not calling you out btw, Im really just curious) Its hard to put into words sometimes how to ask something and it not come out or be taken all wrong lol! :)

The bible was written by man.To me its nothing but a book of fairy tales. And its complete incest, teveryone stemming from adam and eve which meant the brothers and sisters were screwing each other. plus stories with giants burning bushes an ark that held two of every animal. I mean come on people, not to be rude but how does anyone believe any of this.. All those stories would be in any book of fantasy

For the sake on honesty I must say I used to be one of those Christians I just wrote against. Jesus changed my heart and showed me where i was wrong. I have hurt a lot of people in my past because of my hypocracy, people who I have made a full apology to and was graciously forgiven.
When I say I am horrified by self-righteous Chrrstians I include my self, I am horrified at how I used to be and sometimes still am. I am just as guilty as the next person of misplaced judgement. So I apologize as someone who has commited this sin in the past and have repented and am in the midst of a heart change.

she was wrong to judge you according to the bible, you don't claim Jesus as your savior so you shouldn't be judged by the bible. Christians are only supposed judge those who claim to follow Jesus by the bible. Everyone else should only be judged by civil law, national custom (though some would disagree with this I still think it is viable), and their own personal moral system.
But we are to judge those who claim to be Christians by the bible they claim to follow.
I'm sorry you have been judged by a foolish Christian. I am a Christian who loves Jesus and am constantly horrified by self righteous Christians who wrongly judge non-Christians by a standared they make no claim to following.
I'm sorry, please know that not all Christians are like this, though far to many are and cause great hurt to those around them for it.
BTW context matters in the bible and most of those verses don't mean what you think they do. They wouldn't stand up to true scrutiny from a Christian who knew what they were talking about. Sorry.

Mary I agree with you about people (especially family) not judging us for our decisions based on the Bible. There are so many interpretations of the Bible that it's difficult to determine what is the bare truth of it. I don't think that anyone--religious or otherwise--should worry about what the Bible says. Live your life and treat others as you want to be treated also (I think that's pretty much a universal sentiment). I think it's awful that your family would chastise you for having a child out of wedlock. Children are incredible beings for the simple fact that they start out as two separate ingredients and grow to become a complex human being...blessing or not, that's still freakin' incredible in my opinion!

i get that is what she is trying to say, but if you beleive the bible, mary was a virgin when she conceived Jesus and she couldnt very well marry God, so unless the op conceived the same way, i dont think its an accurate comparison...that was my point,now if mary had sex with someone she wasnt married to, conceived Jesus, then just lived with the father, or met joseph and married him after she and the father broke up, then it may have connected for me. i mean its no biggie, just 2 different situations is all, thank you though.

[deleted account]

I think Tah Mary Renee (just to save confusion, too many Mary's in this post lol) is saying that because Jesus was an immaculate conception and God was his father not Joseph, Mary didn't marry Jesus's father...Mary had a baby out of wedlock as did Mary Renee...so her family shouldn't judge her because that is what happened in the Bible. That is the connection, that I can see anyway :-)

Sherri, I'm so sorry about your mother. To me that is not ok. It's not ok for someone to say that a child isn't a blessing, whether they're born out of wedlock or not. I come from an Italian family (that's the Catholic side) and I believe they would say supporting your family should always come first. Family trumps religious views, at least IMO.

Second of all, Julianne Marie, you should really make your own thread because you're totally taking this one over as some kind of outlet for you to get out whatever you've been bursting to say about religion whether it's relevant or not.

Third of all, going back to the original posting...

Mary wasn't married to Jesus's father either!!!!!!
And then she married someone else who was NOT Jesus's father either. SO THERE! Kiss my sinful ass.

Here's a question? Can I baptize a baby whose parent's aren't married? Apparently I need to get her butt out of purgatory!

(btw, I'm only kidding, there's no afterlife)

nope, i don't know what all Christians believe, i know what some follow, that's my point, all Christians don't believe the same thing. no one knows what EVERY christian follows, and to say they do, is ridiculous.

Ladies you have already been asked to get back on topic, this thread is about the hypocrisy of using Biblical verses to condemn people, it is not about the New and Old Testament or the immaculate conception. This is a final warning if this thread goes off topic again we will have to lock it until further notice.

The immaculate conception definitely doesn't refer to Jesus's conception, although a lot of people think it does. And it is wholely-Catholic-Church created, which is why other Christians who aren't Catholic don't follow it. My point simply being that the immaculate conception isn't really a good example of differences in Christian beliefs re: the New Testament because it isn't actually in the New Testament (although I don't think even most Catholics realize the IM isn't contained in the Bible).

Question: "What is the immaculate conception?"

Answer: Many people mistakenly believe that the immaculate conception refers to the conception of Jesus Christ. Jesus’ conception was most assuredly immaculate…but the immaculate conception does not refer to Jesus at all. The immaculate conception is a doctrine of the Romans Catholic Church in regards to Mary, Jesus’ mother. An official statement of the doctrine reads, “…the blessed Virgin Mary to have been, from the first instant of her conception, by a singular grace and privilege of Almighty God, in view of the merits of Christ Jesus the Savior of Mankind, preserved free from all stain of original sin.” Essentially the immaculate conception is the belief that Mary was protected from original sin, that Mary did not have a sin nature, and was, in fact, sinless.



The problem with the doctrine of the immaculate conception is that it is not taught in the Bible. The Bible nowhere describes Mary as anything but an ordinary human female whom God chose to be the mother of the Lord Jesus Christ. Mary was undoubtedly a godly woman (Luke 1:28). Mary was surely a wonderful wife and mother. Jesus definitely loved and cherished His mother (John 19:27). The Bible gives us no reason to believe that Mary was sinless. In fact, the Bible gives us every reason to believe that Jesus Christ is the only Person who was not “infected” by sin and never committed a sin (Ecclesiastes 7:20; Romans 3:23; 2 Corinthians 5:21; 1 Peter 2:22; 1 John 3:5).



See http://www.gotquestions.org/immaculate-c...



That being said, on the basis of pure doctrine, I agree with the other posters who stated, in so many words, that the New Testament is the new covenant that supposedly trumps the old testament. By definition, if you believe in Christ as your savior, then you believe he is the New Covenant and follow his teachings over the old. A lot of Christian churches still study the old testament, but it's not on the same level as the new testament (until, of course, they realize Jesus's teachings don't support their political views and THEN use the old testament to bolster those views). There is a lot of selective reading that goes on in any religion -- people may say they are of a particular faith, but then they pick and choose what they want to believe based on what suits them. Since you were raised Catholic, I'm sure you are familiar with the terms "Cafeteria Catholic" and the "C & E Crowd".



Which is exactly the point I made earlier to the OP -- her aunt is selectly reading the Bible to support her views that out of wedlock births are sinful when there is plenty of other text that would condemn the aunt's actions in judging.

[deleted account]

From what i was taught, the immaculate conception was of Jesus, not Mary.

the pope created a lot of bs...to scare people into going to church, so i wouldn't doubt it.

[deleted account]

I think you have your doctrines mixed up. The Immaculate Conception of Mary doesn't mean she was born to a virgin - it refers to the concept that she was born pure, without original sin and was supposedly "preserved" by God for the purposes of conceiving Jesus. The conception of Jesus is the Annunciation. I think you are just a little confused. Non-Catholics don't believe the IC because it's not actually in the Bible -- it's Church dogma, created by the Pope.

[deleted account]

the immaculate conception of Jesus is the one some Christians do not believe in.....i dont know anyone who thinks mary was born to a virgin....i had to go to Catholic school we had bible study all the time and i never heard that.

[deleted account]

That's not the Immaculate Conception of MARY, Julianne. That's the conception of JESUS. Totally different.

luke 1:27–28



27 to a virgin pledged to be married to a man named Joseph, a descendant of David. The virgin’s name was Mary. 28 The angel went to her and said, “Greetings, you who are highly favored! The Lord is with you.”

[deleted account]

The immaculate conception isn't actually in the Bible, people, which is why some Christians don't follow it. It's Catholic dogma.

I think all of u should be advised, the "bible" all of you refer to is not the WHOLE story. If You really do your historical research, you will find that ther were other "books" written and found but MAN decided not to have them in the "bible". there are other scrolls found that were written @ the same time and not acknowledged. I am an evangelical luthern, I am an active church member and I believe it is wrong to judge and condem others. I also know I am guilty of this too, as we all are. I think that everyone should be more aware of what they are actually saying before they chose to blindly follow it. Christian by defult isn't really Christian.

I can't answer cuz Lacye told me not too..... lol!

For the OP: It's very frustrating when people use the word of God to condemn people instead of speaking the truth in love and I'm sorry that happened to you. EVERY child is a blessing regardless of the 'sins' (not going to start a debate on this part, please) of his/her parents.
