7 Shocking Bible Verses You Probably Won't Hear In Church

The is a link to an article from Buzzfeed that attempts to take seven Biblical verses and assert that Christians are ashamed of them. The assumption seems to be that after 2000 years, no one has ever thought seriously about these verses and what they mean until now! 



 7 Shocking Bible Verses You Probably Won't Hear In Church



I think the article shows what happens when reading comprehension fails.  To be fair, one cannot simply read the Bible and understand everything that is being communicated without looking at history at the time and an attitude of fairly allowing the text to speak. As a contrast checkout Dr James White's response to this article.

    So you are a moral relativist then. Ok.

  2. Did you even bother to watch the video. I am not saying that rightness and wrongness is determined by circumstance at all times. I am saying that people who argue like the article being responded to do not understand what the Bible is saying for example. Psalm 137 is not telling anyone that dashing babies heads against rock is something that makes God happy. Do you even know what is being communicated? Guess not.
