Atheist Ammo of the Day - The Top 10 Shocking Things Christians Don’t Know about the Bible

It's always a good idea when debating people to have many different types of information(ammo) easily accessible.  Some people like to point out how ignorant the faithful actually are when it comes to the bible. So if you're one who has actually studied the bible and love to call out the faithful on their lack of knowledge,  here's some more fun ammo for you to use when debating theists and fundies. Re-posted from an article by David Stockin on Atheist Connect.  I've only posted the list so click here to read the whole article and get details about each point.

 

I'll add one more just for the heck of it.  The immaculate conception does not refer to the birth of baby jebus. It refers to Mary being born without sin.

The Top 10 Shocking Things Christians Don’t Know about the Bible

1. Despite Mel Gibson’s movie, there is almost no Crucifixion account.

2. There is no Resurrection of Jesus in the Bible.

3. Jesus is Against Marriage (with anyone).

4. Thou Shall Not Kill, is NOT a Commandment.

5. The Bible is full of Raunchy Sex.

6. There is no “Rapture” in the Bible.

7. Satan is not a Bad Guy. He works for God, and Jesus wants his job!

8. In the Bible there is no Heaven and Hell as it is commonly understood today.

9. There is no “End of the World” in the Bible.

10. There are no “original texts” of the Bible.

This would be a nice article if these arguments were fleshed out, but as sweeping statements they don't really prove anything. Even saying Christians don't know about them isn't entirely true either.

1, 2, and 4 are all in the bible

1 - read matthew 27, and John 19, and mark 15

2 - Mark 16:6 - And he saith unto them, Be not affrighted: Ye seek Jesus of Nazareth, which was crucified: he is risen; he is not here: behold the place where they laid him.

4 - Deut 5:17 - Thou shalt not kill.

3 - Jesus doesn't discourage marriage, but thinks that serving him should be utmost in one's life... Paul is the one who not only discourages marriage, but tells us women should be silent and taught by the husband and such..

 

5 is true

6 is in the bible - 1 Thessalonians 4:16-18, “For the Lord Himself will descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trumpet of God; and the dead in Christ shall rise first. 17 Then we who are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air, and thus we shall always be with the Lord. 18 Therefore comfort one another with these words.”

7 - not true, nor is anything like that in the bible, well, the kjv of it anyhow... some other wacko bible may have re-written that portion of the myth...

8 - explain what you are saying so i can help you determine whether it is biblical or not.. too vague to say what you are meaning...

9 - Luke 21:33 - Heaven and earth shall pass away: but my words shall not pass away.

 

10 - is probably the best argument on this list!

 

cheers!

@Jackson, if you link to the main article they are fleshed out.

 

And yes, I know this article probably commits several fallacies, hasty generalization etc..but I think it's a still an intersting perspective and he does cover each point he is trying to make in detail.

The fact that 10 is true should make anyone question their faith.

Comment by Artor on August 16, 2011 at 11:44pm

@Ashkay-

Yeah, but it's really badly written sex & loses in the translation. It's as exciting as reading a service manual translated from Korean by way of Sanskrit.
