Criticizing the Bible's moral rules (and trying to find excuses to pretend that God does not exist so they don't have to follow them) is chronological snobbery and pride. We are modern people, doggone it! That book is outdated, and we're more enlightened now.
Claiming the Bible is evil has several causes:
- Prejudicial conjecture (giving uninformed negative opinions to persuade others)
- Removal from immediate context
- Removal from historical context
- Removal from ancient cultural context
- Removal from linguistic context
Being "modern" and justifying our rejection of God's plan is rebellion. Quote mining the Bible will not help, but only harm.
