Came across this not too long ago. It's called the Evil Bible Home. It has this one section of evil bible quotes.
Murderous Fire from Heaven
Then he (King Ahaziah) sent an army captain with fifty soldiers to arrest him (Elijah). They found him sitting on top of a hill. The captain said to him, "Man of God, the king has commanded you to come along with us." But Elijah replied to the captain, "If I am a man of God, let fire come down from heaven and destroy you and your fifty men!" Then fire fell from heaven and killed them all. So the king sent another captain with fifty men. The captain said to him, "Man of God, the king says that you must come down right away." Elijah replied, "If I am a man of God, let fire come down from heaven and destroy you and your fifty men!" And again the fire of God fell from heaven and killed them all. (2 Kings 1:9-12)
This is new to me... They are saying you should be athiest because God is evil? I thought the emphasis would be on Him not existing. My father always told me that religion was horrible because of all the violence it caused and everything like that, but he at least saw the general benefit of supporting his wife and children going to church(he just argued with us a little along the way). The whole point to life is family and the community. Even with his beliefs he repected the beliefs of my mother. If this is the only life you have and there is nothing after this, why bother being involved with anything going against religion? Why not support those closest to you who go to church if it makes them happy? I think of something that my parents told me when I was little: It is better to be a Christian if there is a God or no God. If there is no God then you simple die and that is it. But if there is a God and you aren't a Christian, then you go to hell. Which one is better?
I know that isn't really the best way of looking at things. I was also told as a child not to put too much into the bible because it was just written by wondering arabs in the desert, or something to that effect. But the point is that there is no real reason to be religionsly against religion, is there? If you are an athiest, wouldn't it be smart to do what you can to make the lives of those around you better and not spout out garbage about the evils of God! That is rediculous! I think it would be better to do what makes you and others happy. It makes me happy to follow the church, so my father leaves me to it. He's not angry with me. He simply tells me that he disagrees. I think he feels a little out numbered in the household in that area. He probably didn't have much say on Matt and I going to church or not when we were little either. If the mother is Catholic, then the children will be Catholic as well:)
